The Site may permit users to share their Submissions with other users, including through our user forums ("Forums"). Some Forum participants may use anonymous screen names and may have no other connection with Maelle. A large volume of material is available in our Forums and Forum participants may occasionally post messages or make statements, whether intentionally or unintentionally, that are inaccurate, misleading or deceptive. We neither endorse nor are responsible for such messages or statements, or for any opinion, advice, information or other utterance made or displayed on the Site by third parties, whether such third parties are users of the Site or others. The opinions expressed in the Forums reflect solely the opinions of the participants and may not reflect the opinions of Maelle. We are not responsible for any errors or omissions in articles or postings, for hyperlinks embedded in messages or for any results obtained from the use of such information. Under no circumstances will we or our affiliates, suppliers or agents be liable for any loss or damage caused by your reliance on such information obtained through the Site. We may, but have no obligation to, monitor the Forums and any materials displayed, transmitted or otherwise made available on or through the Forums.
All material and information presented by Maelle is intended to be used for personal educational or informational purposes only. The statements made about products have not been evaluated by the U.S Food and Drug Administration and the results reported, if any, may not necessarily occur in all individuals. The statements and products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any condition or disease. All products should be used strictly in accordance with their instructions, precautions and guidelines. You should always check the ingredients for products to avoid potential allergic reactions. Use of the Site is not meant to serve as a substitute for professional medical advice: this Site is solely an online store for specialty beauty products. Please consult with your own physician or health care practitioner regarding the use of any goods, products or information received from the Site before using or relying on them. Your physician or health care practitioner should address any and all medical questions, concerns and decisions regarding the possible treatment of any medical condition. Maelle does not give or intend to give any answers to medical related questions and this Site does not replace any medical professional or medical resource. Maelle does not represent itself as a physician nor is this implied. No prescription medications or medical treatments are intentionally provided on the Site. IF YOU ARE IN NEED OF MEDICAL ATTENTION, CALL 911 OR YOUR PHYSICIAN IMMEDIATELY.
While Maelle has tried to accurately display the colors of products, the actual colors you see will depend on your monitor and may not be accurate.
Maelle is committed to protecting copyrights and expects users of the Site to do the same. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA") provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that any material used or displayed on or through the Site infringes your copyright, you (or your agent) may send us a notice requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information: (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (b) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); (c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow us to locate the material on the Site; (d) the name, address, telephone number and email address (if available) of the complaining party; (e) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; and (f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send us a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.copyright.gov/ for details. DMCA notices and counter-notices regarding the Site should be sent to:

The site, including all materials incorporated therein, is provided "as is" and without warranties of any kind, either express or implied. To the fullest extent permissible by applicable law, Maelle and its subsidiaries, affiliates, distributors, partners, licensors, advertisers, sponsors and agents disclaim all warranties, express or implied, including, without limitation, implied warranties of title, non-infringement, accuracy, merchantability, and fitness for a particular purpose, and any warranties that may arise from course of dealing, course of performance or usage of trade.
Applicable law may not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so the above exclusions may not apply to you. We and our subsidiaries, affiliates, distributors, partners, licensors, advertisers, sponsors and agents do not warrant that your use of the site will be uninterrupted, error-free or secure, that defects will be corrected, or that the site, the server(s) on which the site is offered or any software incorporated into the site are free of viruses or other harmful components. You assume all responsibility and risk for your use of the site and your reliance thereon. No opinion, advice or statement of Maelle or its affiliates, distributors, partners, licensors, advertisers, sponsors or agents, whether made on or through the site or otherwise, shall create any warranty. Your use of the service is entirely at your own risk.
You expressly understand and agree that neither Maelle nor any of our subsidiaries, affiliates, distributors, partners, licensors, advertisers or sponsors, nor our or their directors, officers, employees, consultants, agents or other representatives, are responsible or liable for any indirect, incidental, consequential, special, exemplary, or punitive damages (including, without limitation, damages for loss of business, loss of data, lost profits, loss of goodwill or any other intangible losses), even if Maelle has been advised of the possibility of such damages, under any contract, negligence, strict liability or other theory arising out of or relating in any way to the site. Your sole and exclusive remedy for dissatisfaction with the site is to stop using the site. To the fullest extent permissible by applicable law, the maximum liability of Maelle arising out of or in connection with these terms or the site is limited to the amount you paid to us. In all cases, Maelle will not be liable for any loss or damage that is not reasonably foreseeable.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the exclusions of certain liability limitations. Accordingly, some of the above limitations of sections 14 (indemnity), 15 (disclaimer of warranties) and 16 (limitation of liability) may not apply to you. In particular, if you are a resident of new jersey, sections 14, 15 and 16 of these terms and conditions shall not apply to you, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any linked, incorporated or otherwise referenced document, policy or terms and conditions.
As part of our order processing procedures, we screen all received orders for fraud or other types of unauthorized or illegal activity. We reserve the right to refuse to process an order due to suspected fraud or unauthorized or illegal activity. If such is the case, we may reject your order or our Customer Support department may call you at the phone number you provided (or use your email address) to confirm your order. We also reserve the right to cancel any accounts or refuse to ship to certain addresses due to suspected fraud or unauthorized illegal activity. We take these measures to protect our customers as well as ourselves from fraud or other unauthorized or illegal activity.

These Terms are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Illinois, United States of America, without regards to its principles of conflicts of law. You agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of any State or Federal court located in the County of Cook County, Illinois, United States of America, and waive any jurisdictional, venue or inconvenient forum objections to such courts. If any provision of these Terms, or the application thereof to any person, place or circumstance, shall be held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, void or otherwise unenforceable, such provision shall be enforced to the maximum extent possible, or, if incapable of such enforcement, shall be deemed to be deleted from these Terms, and the remainder of these Terms and such provisions as applied to other persons, places and circumstances shall remain in full force and effect. No waiver by either party of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default, nor shall any delay or omission on the part of either party to exercise or avail itself of any right or remedy that it has or may have hereunder operate as a waiver of any right or remedy. This is the entire agreement between us relating to the subject matter herein and supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous written or oral agreements between us with respect to such subject matter.
