We have a policy of limiting access to our Services and terminating the accounts of users who infringe the intellectual property rights of others. If you believe that anything on our Site infringes any copyright that you own or control, you may notify Naturally Slim’s Designated Agent as follows:
Designated Agent: NS412, LLC
Attn: Privacy Officer
Address: 12790 Merit Drive,
Dallas, Texas 75251
Please see 17 U.S.C. §512(c)(3) for the requirements of a proper notification. You should also note that if you knowingly make any material misrepresentation in your notification that the material or activity is infringing, you will be liable for any damages, including, without limitation, costs and attorneys’ fees, incurred by us or the alleged infringer as the result of our relying upon such misrepresentation in removing or disabling access to the material or activity claimed to be infringing.
These Terms are effective unless and until terminated by either you or Naturally Slim. You may terminate these Terms at any time by ceasing any and all use of the Services. Naturally Slim may terminate these Terms at any time without notice and deny you access to the Services, if in Naturally Slim's sole discretion, you fail to comply with any term or provision of these Terms. Any termination of these Terms shall not limit Naturally Slim's other rights and remedies available under law or equity. Upon any termination of these Terms by either you or Naturally Slim, you must promptly destroy all materials downloaded or otherwise obtained from these Services, as well as all copies of such materials, whether made under these Terms or otherwise.
Please read the following section carefully because it requires you to arbitrate certain disputes and claims with Naturally Slim and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us, including a class action waiver. This Section 16 applies to all Disputes (unless excluded under Section 16.1) between you and the Naturally Slim Parties.
Except for any disputes, claims, suits, actions, causes of action, demands or proceedings (collectively, “Disputes”) in which either party seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court or seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, including, without limitation, copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents, you and Naturally Slim agree (a) to waive your and Naturally Slim’s respective rights to have any and all Disputes arising from or related to these Terms, or the Services or Naturally Slim Content, resolved in a court, and (b) to waive your and Naturally Slim’s respective rights to a jury trial. Instead, you and Naturally Slim agree to arbitrate Disputes through binding arbitration (which is the referral of a Dispute to one or more persons charged with reviewing the Dispute and making a final and binding determination to resolve it instead of having the Dispute decided by a judge or jury in court).
You and Naturally Slim agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 16 shall be both substantively and procedurally governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (the “FAA”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.
You and Naturally Slim agree that each party will notify the other party in writing of any arbitrable or small claims Dispute within thirty (30) days of the date it arises, so that the parties can attempt in good faith to resolve the Dispute informally. Notice to Naturally Slim shall be sent by certified mail or courier to 12790 Merit Drive, Suite 700, Dallas, Texas 75251, firstname.lastname@example.org. Your notice must include (a) your name, postal address, telephone number, the email address you use or used for your Account and, if different, an email address at which you can be contacted, (b) a description in reasonable detail of the nature or basis of the Dispute, and (c) the specific relief that you are seeking. Our notice to you will be sent electronically in accordance with Section 7 and will include (x) our name, postal address, telephone number and an email address at which we can be contacted with respect to the Dispute, (y) a description in reasonable detail of the nature or basis of the Dispute, and (z) the specific relief that we are seeking. If you and Naturally Slim cannot agree how to resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days after the date notice is received by the applicable party, then either you or Naturally Slim may, as appropriate and in accordance with this Section 16, commence an arbitration proceeding or, to the extent specifically provided for in Section 16.1, file a claim in court.
Except for Disputes in which either party seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court or seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, including, without limitation, copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents, you and Naturally Slim agree that any Dispute must be commenced or filed by you or Naturally Slim within one (1) year of the date the Dispute arose, otherwise the underlying claim is permanently barred (which means that you and Naturally Slim will no longer have the right to assert such claim regarding the Dispute). You and Naturally Slim agree that (a) any arbitration will occur (i) in Dallas, Texas, (ii) in the county where you reside, or (iii) telephonically, (b) arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator in accordance with the American Arbitration Association’s (“AAA”) Consumer Arbitration Rules that are in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated, as modified by the terms set forth herein (“AAA Rules”), which are hereby incorporated by reference, and (c) that the seat of the arbitration shall be Dallas, Texas and that state or federal courts of the State of Texas and the United States, respectively, sitting in Dallas, Texas, have exclusive jurisdiction over any litigation in aid of arbitration and the enforcement of any arbitration awards. The parties shall attempt to agree on the single arbitrator to be appointed to resolve the dispute. If the parties are unable to reach agreement within 30 days after commencement of the arbitration with the AAA, the arbitrator selection process identified in the AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules shall apply. You may also litigate a Dispute in the small claims court located in the county of your billing address if the Dispute meets the requirements to be heard in small claims court. Each party shall be responsible for its costs incurred in such arbitration, but the arbitrator shall not have the authority to re-allocate those costs in an award or otherwise. If you cannot afford to pay for the arbitration, you agree to provide us the option of paying the arbitrator before seeking to initiate any other form of dispute resolution, including litigation. As part of the arbitration, both you and Naturally Slim will have the opportunity to reasonable discovery of non-privileged information that is relevant and material to the Dispute, including the ability to request from each other, and third parties, documents, information and testimony that is relevant and material to the Dispute.
As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the applicable AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have (a) the exclusive authority and jurisdiction to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding a Dispute, including the determination of whether a Dispute is arbitrable, and (b) the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court; provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms. The arbitrator may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual.
The AAA Rules and additional information about the AAA are available on the AAA website. By agreeing to be bound by these Terms, you either (a) acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the AAA Rules, or (b) waive your opportunity to read the AAA Rules and any claim that the AAA Rules are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
If any term, clause or provision of this Section 16 is held invalid or unenforceable, it will be so held to the minimum extent required by law, and all other terms, clauses and provisions of this Section 16 will remain valid and enforceable. Further, the waivers set forth in Section 16.2 are severable from the other provisions of these Terms and will remain valid and enforceable, except as prohibited by applicable law.
You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within thirty (30) days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Section 16 by writing to:
Attn: Privacy Officer
Address: 12790 Merit Drive,
Dallas, Texas 75251
In order to be effective, the opt out notice must include your full name and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve Disputes in accordance with Section 17.
These Terms, and your access to and use of the Services shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of the State of Texas or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any Dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court, shall be resolved on an individual basis in the state or federal courts of the State of Texas and the United States, respectively, sitting in Dallas, Texas.
Naturally Slim may change, move, edit, modify, restrict access to, discontinue or delete portions of, or may add to, the Services from time to time and without notice. Naturally Slim reserves the right to change, modify, add to, delete, or otherwise alter these Terms at Naturally Slim’s sole discretion at any time. If we make changes to these Terms, we will provide notice of such changes, such as by sending an email notification, providing notice through the Services or updating the “Effective Date” date at the beginning of these Terms. Such changes and/or modifications shall be effective immediately upon their posting and can be viewable by periodically clicking on this link. Please print a copy of these Terms for your records. Your use of the Services following any such change constitutes your agreement to follow and be bound by the revised Terms. We encourage you to review the Terms frequently to ensure that you understand the terms and conditions that apply when you access or use the Services. If you do not agree to the revised Terms, you may not access or use the Services.
If any provision of these Terms shall be found to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
A failure on the part of Naturally Slim to enforce any part of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of any of Naturally Slim's rights under these Terms, whether for past or future actions on the part of any person. Only a specific written waiver signed by an authorized representative of Naturally Slim shall have legal effect.
Unless otherwise specified and except to the extent Naturally Slim products or services are offered for sale in the United States through these Services, these Services and the Naturally Slim Content thereof are displayed solely for the purpose of promoting Naturally Slim's products and services available in the United States and select foreign markets. These Services are controlled and operated by Naturally Slim from its offices in Garland, Texas.

If you access an App via a mobile device or tablet branded by Apple, Inc. (“Apple”) and running Apple’s iOS (an “Apple Device”), the following terms (“Apple Terms”) are hereby made part of these Terms:
If these Apple Terms conflict with any other provision of these Terms, then the Apple Terms control with respect to access and use of the Digital Services via an Apple Device. Apple is not a party to these Terms and does not own and is not responsible for any App you access via your Apple Device (“iOS App”) and the content thereof.

It is not the intent of these Terms to limit Naturally Slim’s liability beyond what is permitted by applicable law. In the event of any third party claim that an iOS App or your possession and use (in accordance with these Terms) of an iOS App infringes that third party’s intellectual property rights, Apple will not be responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement and discharge of any such intellectual property infringement claim. You represent and warrant that (i) you are not located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country; and (ii) you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties. Apple, and Apple’s subsidiaries, are third-party beneficiaries of these Terms with respect to any iOS App, and that, upon your acceptance of these Terms, Apple has the right (and deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce the Terms against you with respect to the iOS App as a third-party beneficiary thereof.
