Last Updated: July 31, 2017
Vita.G, LLC (“Vita.G,” “we” or “us”) provides an online service, including, but not limited to the Vita.G website, www.vitaglab.com (the “Site”), and related content or services (collectively with the Site, the “Service”). THESE TERMS OF SERVICE (THE “TERMS”) ARE A LEGAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND VITA.G, LLC AND GOVERN YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE. The terms “you” and “user” shall refer to all individuals and entities that access the Service.
These Terms include a release by you of, and limitations on, claims for certain damages against us that may arise out of your use of the Service. By using the Service, you are agreeing to the release and limitations.
By accepting these Terms, you are agreeing to the arbitration agreement (unless you follow the opt-out procedure) described below in these Terms to resolve any disputes with Vita.G.
By your affirmative actions of registering for and/or using the Service, you are agreeing to these Terms.
The Service is a website where users may evaluate, investigate, and ultimately decide to purchase supplements related to bariatric procedures and related health options. The Service is not a substitute for your personal physician’s recommendations for overall health and nutritional support, post-bariatric operative care and/or nutritional supplementation.
The information contained in the website is provided for informational purposes only and is not meant to substitute for the advice provided by your doctor or other health care professional. You should not use the information available on or through the Vita.G website (including, but not limited to, information that may be provided by healthcare and/or nutrition professionals employed by, or contracting with, Vita.G) for diagnosing or treating a health problem or disease, or prescribing any medication. Information and statements regarding dietary supplements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration unless specifically so stated.
The Service is offered and available to users who are 18 years of age or older. By using the Service, you agree that you are of legal age to form a binding contract with Vita.G, and these Terms and register for the Service. Vita.G may, in its discretion, refuse to offer the Service to any person and change its eligibility criteria at any time. Your right to access the Service is revoked where these Terms or use of the Service is prohibited and, in such circumstances, you agree not to use or access the Service in any way.
When you visit the website or send emails to us, you are communicating with us electronically. You consent to receive communications from us electronically. We will communicate with you by email or by posting notices on the website or through the Service. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that those communications be in writing.
Use of the Service may require a compatible hardware device and Internet access. Your ability to use the Service may be affected by performance of these items. You acknowledge and agree that all such system requirements, which may be changed from time to time, are your responsibility, and your mobile carrier’s standard charges, data rates and other fees may apply. Further, you agree to always use the most recent version of the Service made available by Vita.G.
License to Use the Service; Ownership
Subject to your compliance with these Terms, Vita.G grants to you a limited license to access and use the Service during the term of these Terms solely for your own personal, non-commercial purposes. This license is personal to you and may not be assigned or sublicensed to anyone else.
You will not reproduce, copy, transfer, give access to, distribute, sell, rent, lease, assign, sublicense, create derivative works from, decompile, reverse engineer, or disassemble the Service or any part of the Service in any manner whatsoever.
You acknowledge and agree that nothing in these Terms conveys to you any ownership, intellectual property rights or other proprietary interest in or relating to the Service and any other Vita.G services, or any modifications or derivative works of any of the foregoing. The Service is licensed, not sold, to you and is owned by Vita.G and its licensors. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, Vita.G reserves all right, title and interest, including all intellectual property and other rights, in and to the Service. You agree not to obscure or alter or remove any patent, copyright, trademark or other proprietary notice or legend contained on or in the Service.
We welcome your comments, feedback, suggestions, and other communications regarding the Site and Service (collectively, “Feedback”). While you are not obligated to provide Feedback, in the event that you provide Feedback, you grant to Vita.G a worldwide, non-exclusive, transferrable, assignable, sub-licensable, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free license to copy, distribute, create derivative works of, publicly display and perform and otherwise exploit the Feedback and to use, make, have made, sell, offer for sale, import and export products and services based on such Feedback. For this reason, we ask that you not send Vita.G any Feedback that you do not wish to license to us as set forth above.
You may browse the Site without registering, but as a condition to using certain aspects of the Service, you are required to register with Vita.G and agree that you will provide Vita.G with accurate and complete registration information (including an email address and a password you will use to access the Service) and keep your registration information accurate and up-to-date. Failure to do so is a breach of these Terms, which may result in immediate termination of your Vita.G account. You agree to refrain from using a username that is the name of another person other than you or selecting a username that is not lawfully available to use, or violates any trademark or copyright. Usernames that are vulgar, obscene, or offensive will violate the terms of this Agreement and result in Account termination.
If you register with Vita.G using your Facebook or Google account, we automatically request your email address and publicly available information, including your account ID, name and gender as well as public information for authentication purposes. If you revisit Vita.G while logged into one of these social media services, we’ll automatically log you into your Vita.G account. If you don’t register for Vita.G via social media but later attempt to log into Vita.G using your social media credentials, we’ll connect your social media and Vita.G accounts and request the necessary information as if you were newly registering. Information gathered by any social media service in connection with your use of their products, features, and services are governed by each service’s specific data policy.
You acknowledge that Vita.G has no obligation to monitor your or any other user’s access or use of the Site or the Service or edit any User Content (as defined below). Vita.G reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to refuse registration of, remove or disable an account (temporarily or permanently) in Vita.G’s sole discretion. You are solely responsible and liable for activity that occurs on your account and shall be responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password. You agree to immediately notify Vita.G in writing of any unauthorized use of your account, or other account related security breach of which you are aware.
Unless required by law, you agree and acknowledge that your Vita.G Account is non-transferable and any rights to your Vita.G Account or Content therein terminate upon your death. In the event of your death, a valid copy of a death certificate may permit the proper party to terminate your Account and related Content on your behalf. Contact Vita.G firstname.lastname@example.org for additional assistance.
Service Refunds; Credits; Taxes
At Vita.G’s sole discretion, refunds or credits may be granted as a result of specific refund guarantee promotions, or to correct any errors made by Vita.G.

Shipping and handling charges are non-refundable. Vita.G reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to reject any refund claim that does not comply with these requirements.
Vita.G reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify the website or the Service or to modify these Terms, including the fees associated with the Service, at any time and without prior notice. A link to the most current Terms will be available on the Vita.G home page and we will indicate the date of the “Latest Updated” at the top of the Terms. If we materially modify these Terms, we will post a notice on the Service and, if you’ve provided Vita.G with your email by creating an account through the Service, we will also notify you by email.

Vita.G’s Relationship to the Parties
Vita.G’s website is merely a conduit where well-informed, independent, and discerning individuals may evaluate and ultimately decide to purchase select post-bariatric surgery supplements and general health options offered through the website.
Links/Third Party Websites
As part of our services and its resident features and functions, you may encounter materials from third parties and/or hyperlinks to other Content, resources, or websites. Because we have no control over third parties and their related materials, you acknowledge and agree that Vita.G shall not be responsible or liable for any alleged damages you may have incurred either directly or indirectly.
When you access a non-Vita.G website, even one that may contain the Vita.G logo, please understand that it is independent from Vita.G, and that Vita.G has no control over the content on that website. In addition, a link to a non-Vita.G website does not mean that Vita.G endorses or accepts any responsibility for the content, or the use, of such website. It is up to you to take precautions to ensure that whatever you select for your use is free of viruses, worms, trojan horses and other items of a destructive nature.
Intellectual Property Rights
VITA.G and the VITA.G Logo are service marks, trademarks, and/or trade dress of Vita.G or otherwise proprietary to Vita.G and may not be used by you for any reason other than as expressly permitted by these terms. All website content, design, text, graphics, and interfaces; the collection, selection, and arrangement thereof; and all software are the property of, or duly licensed to, Vita.G. You acknowledge that Vita.G and/or third-party content providers remain the owners of all website and Service material and that you do not acquire any of those ownership rights by downloading, copying or using any such material in accordance with these Terms.
Acceptable Use Policy
All Content, whether publicly posted or privately transmitted, is the sole responsibility of the person who originated such Content. Vita.G cannot guarantee the authenticity of any Content or data which users may provide about themselves. You acknowledge that all Content accessed by you using the Service is at your own risk and you will be solely responsible and liable for any damage or loss to you or any other party resulting therefrom. For purposes of these Terms, the term “Content” includes, without limitation, any location information, videos, audio clips, comments, information, data, text, photographs, software, scripts, graphics, and interactive features generated, provided, or otherwise made accessible by Vita.G on or through the Service.
Although Vita.G makes reasonable efforts to provide proper care and skill in delivering its services, Vita.G does not guarantee, warrant, or covenant that any Content you access and/or store via the services will not be accidentally lost, corrupted, or damaged. Given this reality, you agree and acknowledge that it is your sole responsibility to back up any important Content on your device(s) and/or computer(s).

You shall abide by and maintain all copyright notices, information, and restrictions contained in any Content accessed through the Service.
Subject to these Terms, Vita.G grants each user a worldwide, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable and non-transferable license to use the Content, solely for personal, non-commercial use in connection with the Service. Any other use, reproduction, modification, distribution or storage of any Content is expressly prohibited without prior written permission from Vita.G, or from the copyright holder identified in such Content’s copyright notice, as applicable.
Content added, created, uploaded, submitted, distributed, posted or otherwise obtained through the Service by users, including Content that is added to the Service in connection with users linking their accounts to third party websites and services, is collectively referred to as, “User Submissions.”
By submitting User Submissions on the website or otherwise through the Service, you grant Vita.G a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, fully paid, sublicensable and transferable license to use, copy, edit, modify, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display, perform, and otherwise fully exploit the User Submissions in connection with the website, the Service and Vita.G’s (and its successors and assigns’) business, including without limitation for promoting and redistributing part or all of the website (and derivative works thereof) or the Service in any media formats and through any media channels (including, without limitation, third party websites and feeds). For clarity, the foregoing license grant to Vita.G does not affect your other ownership or license rights in your User Submission(s), including the right to grant additional licenses to the material in your User Submission(s), unless otherwise agreed in writing with Vita.G.
You acknowledge and agree that you have all rights to grant such license to us without infringement or violation of any third party rights, including without limitation, any privacy rights, publicity rights, copyrights, contract rights, or any other intellectual property or proprietary rights.

Dispute Resolution: Arbitration
This section includes an arbitration agreement. Please read it carefully. You may opt out of the arbitration agreement by following the opt out procedure described below.
Informal Process First
You agree that in the event of any dispute between you and Vita.G, you will first contact Vita.G and make a good faith sustained effort to resolve the dispute before resorting to more formal means of resolution, including without limitation any court action.
After the informal dispute resolution process any remaining dispute, controversy, or claim (collectively, “Claim”) relating in any way to your use of Vita.G’s services, including the Service, or relating in any way to the communications between you and Vita.G or any other user of the Service, will be finally resolved by binding arbitration. This mandatory arbitration agreement applies equally to you and Vita.G. However, this arbitration agreement does not (a) govern any Claim by Vita.G for infringement of its intellectual property or access to the Service that is unauthorized or exceeds authorization granted in these Terms or (b) bar you from making use of applicable small claims court procedures in appropriate cases. If you are an individual you may opt out of this arbitration agreement within thirty (30) days of the first of the date you access or use this Service by following the procedure described below.
Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. There is no judge or jury in arbitration. Instead, the dispute is resolve by a neutral arbitrator. Court review of an arbitration award is limited. Except to the extent the parties agree otherwise, arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. You agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This arbitration provision will survive any termination of these Terms.
If you wish to begin an arbitration proceeding, after following the informal dispute resolution procedure, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to Vita.G, LLC, 16192 Coastal Highway, Lewes, Delaware 19958. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules including, if you are an individual, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. If you are not an individual or have used the Service on behalf of an entity, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes will not be used. The AAA’s rules are available at http://www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879.
The number of arbitrators will be one. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location. The arbitration will be conducted in the English language. Delaware law will apply. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules
The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court, will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, unconscionability, arbitrability, enforceability, or formation of this arbitration agreement, including any claim that all or any part of this arbitration agreement is void or voidable.
If you do not want to arbitrate disputes with Vita.G and you are an individual, you may opt out of this arbitration agreement by sending an email at email@example.com within thirty (30) days of the first of the date you access or use the Service.
If any of the provisions of these Terms are held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be void or unenforceable, such provisions shall be limited to the minimum extent necessary and replaced with a valid provision that best embodies these Terms.
Choice of Law
These Terms, the Service, and your use hereof, are governed by the laws of Delaware, without regard to Delaware’s choice of law provisions, and any claim arising out of your use of the website or Service must be brought in New York County, New York.
