Purchasing Products or Services
Brain Power may from time to time make certain products or services (the “Products”) available for you to purchase on the Site. If you purchase a Product on the site the following terms and conditions apply to your purchase in addition to the other Terms and Conditions contained herein:
Chargebacks and Failed Payments
If you purchase a Product with a credit card, and your credit card is declined or you reverse or dispute the charges, we have the right to collect any unpaid amounts via collection agencies and to report the unpaid amount as an unpaid consumer debt to credit reporting agencies.
Transfer of Ownership
Brain Power retains all title and interest the Products until you have paid for them in full. If you purchase a Product with a credit card, and your credit card is declined or you reverse or dispute the charges, we have the right to collect any unpaid amounts via collection agencies and to report the unpaid amount as an unpaid consumer debt to credit reporting agencies. In addition to the above, we also have the right to repossess all unpaid Products.
If you purchase a subscription product such as a “Monthly Plan,” you may cancel your subscription at any time, but if you cancel before the minimum subscription length, you are required to return the product in its original packaging within 10 days of cancellation. Product must be undamaged and in working condition. If you do not return the product within 10 days of cancellation, you authorize us to charge your credit card the difference between the “Own it Now” price of the product and the total amount you have paid in subscription fees up to the point of cancellation, at which point you will own the product. If your credit card is declined or you reverse or dispute the charges, we have the right to collect any unpaid amounts via collection agencies and to report the unpaid amount as an unpaid consumer debt to credit reporting agencies.
30-Day Money-Back Guarantee
Unless otherwise stated in the product description you have thirty days from the date of delivery to return the product for a full refund of the product purchase price plus any taxes paid. You must ship the product back, in its original packaging, undamaged and in its original, new condition, within thirty days of the date of delivery in order to be eligible for a refund. After we inspect your product and confirm it is in its original condition, we will issue a full refund to your original means of payment. If you dispute or reverse a charge through your credit card company, we have the right to collect any unpaid amounts via debt collection agencies, and to report the unpaid debt to consumer credit reporting agencies.
Any Product that includes hardware manufactured by a party other than Brain Power may be covered by a warranty offered by the original hardware manufacturer. Brain Power does not provide a warranty for any hardware or other products manufactured or created by third parties, even if you purchase them on this Site. You must contact the manufacturer directly for information and warranty service. Brain Power will assist you in contacting the manufacturer and will provide you with proof of purchase if necessary, but Brain Power is not responsible if the original manufacturer does not or is not willing to provide you with warranty service.
To the extent permissible under applicable law, in no event will Brain Power’s liability in connection with your purchase and use of any Product exceed the amounts actually paid by you to Brain Power for the Product. This limitation applies to all causes of action in the aggregate.
Brain Power shall not be held liable for any delays in shipping Product purchased on this Site, and your sole remedy shall be cancellation of the order and refund of the purchase price of the delayed Product.

ARBITRATION CLAUSE AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER—IMPORTANT—PLEASE REVIEW AS THIS AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
YOU AGREE THAT ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND US (WHETHER OR NOT SUCH DISPUTE INVOLVES A THIRD PARTY) WITH REGARD TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH US, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DISPUTES RELATED TO THIS TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES, AND/OR RIGHTS OF PRIVACY AND/OR PUBLICITY, WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION UNDER THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION’S RULES FOR ARBITRATION OF CONSUMER-RELATED DISPUTES AND YOU AND WE HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVE TRIAL BY JURY. DISCOVERY AND RIGHTS TO APPEAL IN ARBITRATION ARE GENERALLY MORE LIMITED THAN IN A LAWSUIT, AND OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU AND WE WOULD HAVE IN COURT MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION. Neither you nor we will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by this agreement to arbitrate. YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS MEMBER ON ANY CLASS CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST US INCLUDING ANY RIGHT TO CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY CONSOLIDATION OF INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATIONS. You also agree not to participate in claims brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated claims involving another person’s account, if we are a party to the proceeding. This dispute resolution provision will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and not by any state law concerning arbitration. In the event the American Arbitration Association is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within one hundred and sixty (160) days of filing the case, then either we or you can elect to have the arbitration administered instead by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with this Terms and Conditions.
- If the prohibition against class actions and other claims brought on behalf of third parties contained above is found to be unenforceable, then all of the preceding language in this Arbitration section will be null and void. This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with us.
Governing Law and Venue
This agreement shall be governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the applicable federal laws of the United States of America. All disputes arising under, or in any way connected with membership in or use of the Site, shall be litigated exclusively in the state and federal courts residing in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and in no other court or jurisdiction. You hereby submit to the jurisdiction of the state and federal courts sitting in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
