- Terms of Sale
- Payment and Billing Information
By submitting your payment information to us, you authorize us (or our third party payment processor) to charge your credit card or other available payment method for the total amount of your purchase (including any applicable taxes and other charges) (collectively, as applicable, an “Order”) in accordance with this policy. You acknowledge that the amount billed may vary due to promotional offers, changes in applicable taxes or other charges, and you authorize us (or our third party payment processor) to charge your payment method for the corresponding amount. You represent that you will not use any credit card or other form of payment unless you have all necessary authorization to do so. We will not be liable in the event others acting with or without your permission use your credit card or other payment method to make Orders on the Site; however you may report any unauthorized use to us, and we will use reasonable measures within our control to help prevent future unauthorized use of your credit card or other payment method.
If your payment method cannot be verified, is invalid or is otherwise not acceptable, your Order may be suspended or cancelled. You must resolve any problem we encounter in order to proceed with your Order.
All prices are shown in U.S. dollars and applicable taxes and other charges, if any, are additional. We reserve the right to adjust prices as we may determine in our sole discretion, at any time and without notice. We will not, however, be able to notify you of changes in any applicable taxes.
- Changes to your Order and Modifications to the Site
All of our products are subject to availability, and we reserve the right to impose quantity limits on any Order, to reject all or part of an Order, to discontinue offering certain products and to substitute products without prior notice. Given market conditions beyond our control, we may be required to make substitutions from time to time. If you are not satisfied with a substitution, please contact us at email@example.com.
In addition, occasionally there may be information on our Site that contains errors, inaccuracies or omissions that may relate to product descriptions, pricing, promotions, offers, and product shipping charges and schedules. We reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions, and to change or update information or cancel Orders if any information in the Site is inaccurate at any time without prior notice (including after you have submitted your Order).
We undertake no obligation to update, amend or clarify information in the Site, including without limitation, pricing information, except as required by law, and we reserve the right in our sole discretion to modify, suspend or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Site (or any features or parts thereof). No specified update or refresh date applied in the Site should be taken to indicate that all information in the Site has been modified or updated.
We will collect applicable sales tax on products shipped to the states for which we determine we have a duty to collect sales tax. If an item is subject to sales tax, you agree that the amount of taxes shown at checkout may be adjusted to comply with applicable tax laws.
- Shipping & Returns
We offer many products which may be shipped to you either directly from us or via a third-party fulfillment service provider. You agree to pay any shipping and handling charges shown at the time you make a purchase. We reserve the right to increase, decrease, add or eliminate shipping and handling charges from time to time, but we will provide notice of the charges applicable to you before you make your purchase. Shipping is handled by a third-party fulfillment service provider. When you purchase a product from us, any shipping times shown on the Site are estimates only. Actual delivery dates may vary. All products purchased from us are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that title to and the risk of loss of such products passes to you upon our delivery of the products to the third-party fulfillment service provider.
Please check all shipping addresses carefully, as we will not offer refunds for any returned products. Should you have additional questions relating to order processing and handling, returns and/or exchanges, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

- Governing Law, Venue and Arbitration
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH LUNAR BEAUTY AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.
All matters relating to the Site, our products and these Terms and any dispute or claim arising therefrom or related thereto (in each case, including non-contractual disputes or claims), shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of California in the United States without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule. To the extent that any lawsuit or court proceeding is permitted hereunder, you and Lunar Beauty agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state courts and federal courts located within Los Angeles County, California for the purpose of litigating all such disputes.
ANY DISPUTE, CLAIM OR CONTROVERSY RELATING IN ANY WAY TO YOUR USE OF THE SITE, OUR PRODUCTS OR THESE TERMS WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION, RATHER THAN IN COURT. YOU AGREE THAT, BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS, THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT AND FEDERAL ARBITRATION LAW APPLY TO ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND LUNAR BEAUTY AND THAT, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, YOU AND LUNAR BEAUTY ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION SHALL SURVIVE TERMINATION OF THESE TERMS.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages).
If you elect to seek arbitration or file a small claims court action, you must first send to Lunar Beauty, by certified mail, a written notice of your claim (a “Notice”). The Notice must be addressed to: Attn: Lunar Beauty Legal Department, 9595 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 900. Beverly Hills, CA 09212 (the “Notice Address”). A Notice, whether sent by you or Lunar Beauty, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the dispute, claim or controversy; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought including a detailed explanation of how the amount of any monetary relief was calculated (the “Demand”). If Lunar Beauty and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, you or Lunar Beauty may commence an arbitration proceeding or, if applicable, file a claim in small claims court.
The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, the “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. In the event of a conflict or inconsistency between the AAA Rules and this arbitration provision, this arbitration provision shall govern. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this arbitration provision. The arbitrator must strictly construe and apply these Terms as written and must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.
YOU AND LUNAR BEAUTY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Lunar Beauty agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims with your claims. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void (for removal of doubt, the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void only if this specific provision regarding the requirement that claims be brought only in your or Lunar Beauty’s individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding, is deemed unenforceable. If any other clause or provision of this arbitration provision is found to be unenforceable, then pursuant to Section 15 below, that specific clause or provision shall be struck, and the remainder of this arbitration provision shall be enforced). The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim.
Notwithstanding anything contained in these Terms, we reserve the right, without notice and in our sole discretion, to terminate your right to access or use the Site and to order, receive and use our products, at any time and for any or no reason, and you acknowledge and agree that we shall have no liability or obligation to you in such event and that you will not be entitled to a refund of any amounts that you have already paid to us, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.
If any term, clause or provision of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable, then that term, clause or provision will be severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity or enforceability of any remaining part of that term, clause or provision, or any other term, clause or provision of these Terms.
The following sections will survive the expiration or termination of these Terms and the termination of your Lunar Beauty account: all defined terms and Sections 1, 3, 4 (first paragraph only), 5 through 17.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Lunar Beauty relating to your access to and use of the Site and your order, receipt and use of Lunar Beauty’s products. These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you without the prior written consent of Lunar Beauty. Lunar Beauty may assign its rights and privileges under these Terms (including any information provided by you to us), without your consent in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of its assets, or to an affiliate, or in connection with a change in control. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms shall bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their respective successors and permitted assigns. No waiver of any provision of these Terms will constitute a waiver of such provision in any prior, concurrent or subsequent circumstance, and Lunar Beauty’s failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Except as otherwise provided herein, these Terms are intended solely for the benefit of the parties and are not intended to confer third party beneficiary rights upon any other person or entity.
Schedule 1. Terms and Conditions
1. You are shopping on Lunar Beauty's website.
2. If you place a Qualifying Customer Order, the Product(s) that you are purchasing will be sold first by the Merchant to Passport Global Inc (“Passport”), and then by Passport to you under these Terms and Conditions. Your payment information, shipping address, and any additional information required or requested to complete your order will be shared directly with Passport and its nominated agents and contractors, in order to enable Passport to complete your Qualifying Customer Order.
3. Your Qualifying Customer Order is subject to: (1) these Terms and Conditions; and (2) any relevant terms and conditions imposed by the Merchant. By completing your purchase, you confirm that you have read and agree to be bound by all of these. By placing a Qualifying Customer Order on the Merchant’s website, you understand and agree that:
3.1 You are dealing with and providing your information to Passport. Passport may contact you about your order.
3.2 If there is an error in the price listed for a Product on the Merchant’s website, or in the price applied to the product during the sale of and processing of your order for the Product, Passport and its nominated agents are entitled to contact you, correct the price, and/or cancel your order.
3.3 The Merchant remains responsible for handling payment for your order.
3.4 Once your payment is processed, ownership in the items will shift from Passport, to you.
3.5 Certain addresses will be ineligible for shipment, such as PO box addresses.
3.6 Passport may refuse service, refuse to process or complete Qualifying Customer Orders, remove or edit content, or cancel such orders for any reason or for no reason, in its sole discretion.
3.7 If you are under the age of majority in the jurisdiction in which you reside, approval of your parent or guardian is required to complete your purchase.
3.8 You authorise Passport and its nominated agents and contractors to perform any of the following activities in connection with the delivery of any Products: (i) to act as your agent to make and file customs declarations and all related actions as your direct representative, which expressly includes completing any documents, amending product or Harmonised System codes, and paying any duties, taxes or penalties required under applicable laws and regulations; (ii) to act as forwarding agent for customs import and export control purposes solely for the purpose of designating a customs broker to perform customs clearance and entry; and (iii) to redirect an order to your customs broker or other address upon request by any person whom Passport’s nominated agents and contractors believe in its reasonable opinion to be authorised.
4. Currency. You may select your preferred payment method and currency from a list of options available at the time of checkout. Please note that the relative value of currencies may vary, and as a result, the actual purchase price for items in your order may vary based on the currency selected.
5. Billing. If you use a payment card or other electronic form of payment as your payment type, the charges to your account for your order will be subject to the Merchant’s terms and conditions.
6. Shipping. Items in your order may be shipped via a single shipment, or via multiple shipments. If items in your Qualifying Customer Order are shipped via multiple shipments, or if your order is only partially filled and shipped, you will only be charged for those items that are actually shipped to you.
7. Chargebacks, Fraud Prevention and Void Transactions. For your protection, Passport may use various fraud prevention protocols and policies, and industry-standard verification systems, to reduce fraud and minimize chargeback risks. You must comply with such protocols and policies, including card authentication, and “ship to” and “bill to” address verification. Once an order is placed, you may not change any authenticated payment information or any verified “ship to”/“bill to” address. If there is a systemic error which results in the processing or acceptance of a transaction for which authorisation has been declined, that transaction will be void.
8. Customer Service and Returns. Questions or complaints about your order should be directed to the Merchant in the first instance. Passport may work with the Merchant as necessary to resolve your issue. The Merchant is authorised to allow for returns or refunds on orders in accordance with the Merchant’s policy, including to reimburse you for the original sales prices of Products returned to the Merchant’s nominated address. Passport may however refuse any return requested if a restriction applies to the item for which the return is requested. You accept that your sole remedies are against the Merchant. Where a return by the Customer is authorised by Passport or the Merchant, Passport shall also have the right to return the item to Merchant and accordingly the Merchant shall issue a credit note to Passport and Passport shall provide a credit note to the Customer, and Passport’s direction, ownership and risk in the Products for return shall pass directly to the Merchant. Where a return is authorised by Passport or the Merchant, the Merchant shall, at Passport’s direction and acting in its name, provide a credit note to the Customer to the extent of the value of the Product(s) authorised to be returned directly to the Merchant. In relation to any return of Products to the Merchant, you authorise Passport and its nominated agents to act on your behalf, and to recover for its own account, any import duties and taxes. If required, you will sign any such document that is reasonably required to facilitate the return of the Products and the recovery of any import duties and taxes.

It is your responsibility to know the laws of the country into which you are importing any Products that you order from the Merchant’s website. By placing a Qualifying Customer Order you certify that the import of the Products you have ordered to the country of the shipping address you have provided does not violate any laws or regulations of that country.

Any order placed after the effective date of a change will constitute your agreement to the change and to the current Terms and Conditions .
9.5 Severability. If any or any portion of these Terms and Conditions is found to be invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that term or portion of terms will be severed, and will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining terms.
