Welcome to Critts, operated by Critts, LLC (“Critts”) and located online, at our Critts website (e.g., www.critts.com or the “Site”), mobile app, and social media platform, and offline (e.g., through customer support channels, our retail locations, and in-person promotional activities) (collectively, the "Platform"). The following terms and conditions (the “Terms”) govern your use.
THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT IN SECTION 11 (DISPUTE RESOLUTION) OF THE TERMS CONTAIN PROVISIONS GOVERNING HOW CLAIMS THAT YOU AND WE HAVE AGAINST EACH OTHER ARE RESOLVED. THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT WILL, WITH LIMITED EXCEPTIONS, REQUIRE DISPUTES BETWEEN US TO BE SUBMITTED TO BINDING AND FINAL ARBITRATION. UNLESS YOU OPT OUT OF THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT: (1) YOU WILL ONLY BE PERMITTED TO PURSUE CLAIMS AND SEEK RELIEF AGAINST US ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING; AND (2) YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO SEEK RELIEF IN A COURT OF LAW AND TO HAVE A JURY TRIAL ON YOUR CLAIMS.
To access certain Services, you may be asked to register and create an account. As part of the registration process, you may be asked to click to agree to these Terms, and may then be asked to select or submit a username and password. You may also be required to provide us with certain information about yourself including some types of personally identifiable information, including your legal name, phone number, address, email address, gender, and age. It is important that you provide us with accurate, complete, and up-to-date information for your account and you agree to update such information to keep it accurate, complete, and up to date. If you do not, we might have to suspend or terminate your account. You are responsible for ensuring that your password and account login are kept secret, safe, and secure always. Critts will not be held responsible or liable for any misuse of your account if a third party has access to and uses your password and account login in any way. You are responsible for all activities that occur under your account, whether you know about them.
When placing an order through the Platform, you will be required to provide other personal information, such as shipping address, billing address, and payment details. Additional information may be collected by Critts or its third-party providers at this time for security and anti-fraud purposes. You represent that the personal information you provide to us via the Platform is true, valid, complete, and up to date in all respects, and you confirm that you are the person referred to in the shipping (unless the item is a gift) and billing information provided. Should any of the information you provide on the Platform change, please login to your account and update such information directly on the Platform.
You may not purchase commercial quantities of our products without our prior written consent, and we may place limits on your purchases. We may also, among other things, restrict orders placed by or under the same customer account or the same credit card, or orders that use the same billing or shipping address. We reserve the right to limit, cancel or prohibit orders that, in our judgment, appear to be placed with an intent to resell or distribute our products. We further reserve the right to stop doing business with customers who violate this policy or any other part of the Terms. Except as may be previously and expressly authorized by us in writing, we also prohibit the offering, use, transfer, or acceptance of our products and gift cards for promotional purposes (e.g., as prizes in contests or sweepstakes) or in connection with any lottery, raffle or wagering scheme. We reserve the right to bar any users we suspect of violating this Section 2 (or any other provision of these Terms) from further use of the Services and to refuse, limit or cancel any related orders and/or suspend or cancel any related accounts. The inclusion of products on the Platform at any time does not guarantee that these products will be available for purchase. For more information about placing special orders, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or check out this site.
Prices posted on this Site may be different than prices offered by us at other physical locations. We strive to display accurate price information, however we may, on occasion, make inadvertent typographical errors, inaccuracies or omissions related to pricing and availability. We reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies, or omissions at any time and to cancel any orders arising from such occurrences. We may, in our sole discretion, offer promotional codes at certain points in time, or for certain audiences. In the event such promo codes are enabled, promo codes should be entered during the checkout process to be valid. Discounts and discount thresholds exclude taxes and charges for shipping and handling. Discounts cannot be used in conjunction with any other offers.
Critts may use a third-party payment processor to process credit card transactions made through the Platform. You are also responsible for paying any governmental taxes imposed in connection with use of the Platform or the purchase or any products or services made available through the Platform, including sales, use, and excise taxes (excluding only taxes on Critts’ net income). To the extent that Critts is obligated to collect such taxes, the applicable tax will be added to your billing account.

All sales are subject to our shipping and return policies, which shall be made available to you on the Platform or other delivered to you with your purchased goods.

- Limitation of Liability
IN NO EVENT WILL CRITTS BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES OTHER THAN ACTUAL AND DIRECT DAMAGES PROVEN IN A COURT OF LAW. IN NO EVENT SHALL CRITTS’ LIABILITY EXCEED THE PRICE YOU PAID FOR THE PRODUCT OR SERVICE THAT IS THE SUBJECT OF THE CLAIM.

- Dispute Resolution
YOU AND CRITTS ARE AGREEING TO GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY, OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR
REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM. Any dispute arising out of these Terms shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration conducted by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”). Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and court review of an arbitration award is very limited.
However, an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual; and an arbitrator must also follow the terms of these Terms, as a court would. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to arbitrability and the scope or enforceability of this agreement to arbitrate shall be for a court of competent jurisdiction to decide. Arbitration shall take place in Houston, Texas, unless Critts elects otherwise. You can begin an arbitration proceeding by sending an email requesting arbitration and describing your claim to adventure@Critts.com.
All arbitrations shall proceed on an individual basis. The arbitrator is empowered to resolve the Dispute with the same remedies available in court, however, any relief must be individualized to you and shall not affect any other customer. You and Critts agree that each may bring claims against the other in arbitration only in your or their respective individual capacities and in so doing you and Critts hereby waive the right to a trial by jury, to assert or participate in a class action lawsuit or class action arbitration (either as a named-plaintiff or class member), and to assert or participate in any joint or consolidated lawsuit or joint or consolidated arbitration of any kind. If a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this paragraph’s limitations as to a particular cause of action, then that cause of action (and only that cause of action) must remain in court and be severed from any arbitration.
The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different Critts users but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same Critts user to the extent required by applicable law. The arbitrator's award shall be final and binding, and 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, unless otherwise stated in this agreement to arbitrate. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, at your request, Critts will pay all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration. Any request for payment of fees by Critts should be submitted by mail to the AAA along with your demand for arbitration and Critts will decide to pay all necessary fees directly to the AAA. If the value of the relief sought is more than $10,000 and you can demonstrate that the costs of accessing arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of accessing a court for purposes of pursuing litigation on an individual basis, Critts will pay as much of the filing, administration, and arbitrator fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the costs of accessing arbitration from being prohibitive. In the event the arbitrator determines the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration to be frivolous, you agree to reimburse Critts for all fees associated with the arbitration paid by Critts on your behalf that you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the AAA’s rules. If an arbitrator or court decides that any part of this agreement to arbitrate is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this agreement to arbitrate shall still apply.
You can choose to reject this agreement to arbitrate by mailing us a written opt-out notice (“Opt-Out Notice”). The Opt-Out Notice must be postmarked no later than thirty days after the date you accept these Terms for the first time. You must complete the Opt-Out Notice form by providing the information called for in the form, including your name, address (including street number and address, city, state, and zip code), phone number, and the email address used to log in to the Critts account to which the opt-out applies. You must sign the Opt-Out Notice for it to be effective. This procedure is the only way you can opt out of the agreement to arbitrate. If you opt out of the agreement to arbitrate, all other parts of these Terms will continue to apply. Opting out of this agreement to arbitrate has no effect on any previous, other, or future arbitration agreements that you may have with us.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, you understand that Critts may make changes to these Terms from time to time. Your continued use of the Platform following the posting of changes to these Terms will be considered your consent to those changes. When these changes are made, Critts will make a new copy of the Terms available on the Site. You agree that Critts is under no obligation to provide you with notices regarding changes to the Terms. You understand that it is your responsibility to check the Terms regularly for changes.
You agree that if Critts does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy which is contained in these Terms (or which Critts has the benefit of under any applicable law), this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of Critts’ rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to Critts. If any court of law, having the jurisdiction to decide a matter arising out of these Terms, rules that any provision of these Terms is invalid, then that provision will be removed from these Terms without affecting the rest of the Terms and the remaining provisions will continue to be valid and enforceable. The Terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of Texas without regard to choose of law principles.
The Platform is controlled and operated from within the United States. Without limiting anything else, Critts makes no representation that the Platform, Platform Content, Comments, services, products, information, or other materials available on, in, or through the Platform is appropriate or available for use in locations other than those indicated on our website, and access to them from territories where they are illegal is prohibited. Those who choose to access the Platform from other locations do so on their own volition and are responsible for compliance with applicable laws.

- Cookies, Pixels, and Similar Technologies
Our uses of such Technologies fall into the following general categories:
Operational. We may use Technologies that are necessary to
the operation of our Services. This includes Technologies that
allow you access to our websites, Services, applications, and
tools; that are required to identify irregular site behavior,
prevent fraudulent activity and improve security; or that allow
you to make use of functions such as shopping carts, saved
search or similar functions.
Performance-Related. We may use Technologies to assess the
performance of our Services, including as part of our analytic
practices to help us understand how our visitors use our
Services, determine if you have interacted with our messaging,
determine whether you have viewed an item or link, or to
improve our website content, applications, services, or tools.
Functionality-Related. We may use Technologies that allow us
to offer you enhanced functionality when accessing or using our
Services. This may include identifying you when you sign into
the Service or keeping track of your specified preferences,
interests or past items viewed so that we may enhance the
presentation of content.
Advertising-Related. We may use first-party or third party
cookies and web beacons to deliver content, including ads
relevant to your interests, on our Services or on third party
sites. This includes using technologies to understand the
usefulness to you of the advertisements and content that has
been delivered to you, such as whether you have clicked on an
advertisement. We may also use third parties to serve targeted
advertisements to people similar to our customer base (e.g., by
uploading a hashed customer list to Facebook Custom Audiences)
or incorporating a pixel from the third-party on our Site. Even
if you have disabled certain cookies, advertisements may still
be displayed to you through these third-party channels.
If you would like to opt-out of the Technologies we employ, you may do so by blocking, deleting, or disabling them as your browser or device permits. See Section 6 for additional opt-out options. Please note that blocking, deleting, or disabling these Technologies will affect the functionality of our Services and may prevent you from being able to access certain features.
- How We Share Your Information
We share information collected through the Services with the following categories of parties:
Vendors and Service Providers. We may share any information
we receive with vendors and service providers. The types of
service providers to whom we entrust personal information
include service providers for: (i) order fulfillment and
warehousing; (ii) web hosting, analytics, and related services;
(iii) payment processing, fraud protection, and credit risk
reduction; (iv) customer service activities such as inquiries
and shipping; and (v) in connection with the provision of the
Services. Critts’ policy is to execute appropriate contracts
with service providers that prohibit them from using or sharing
personal information except as necessary to perform the
contracted services on our behalf or to comply with applicable
Business Partners. Critts may share personal information
with its business partners and affiliates for our and our
affiliates’ internal business purposes or to provide you with a
product or service that you have requested. Critts may also
provide personal information to business partners with whom we
may jointly offer products or services, or whose products or
services we believe may be of interest to you. In such cases,
our business partner’s name will appear, along with Critts.
Marketing. Critts may allow third party advertising
partners to set tracking tools (e.g., cookies) to collect
information regarding your activities on our Services (e.g.,
your IP address, page(s) visited, time of day). We may also
share such de-identified information as well as selected
personal information (such as demographic information and past
purchase history) we have collected with third party
advertising partners. Advertising partners may use this
information (and similar information collected from other
companies) for purposes of delivering targeted advertisements
to you when you visit non-Critts related websites within
their networks. This practice is commonly referred to as
“interest-based advertising” or “online behavioral
advertising”. We may allow access to other data collected by
the Service to facilitate transmittal of information that may
be useful, relevant, valuable, or otherwise of interest to you.
Professional Advisors: We share personal data with our
legal, financial, insurance and other advisors in connection
with corporate transactions or in connection with the
management of all or part of our business or operations.
Legal Disclosure / Law Enforcement. We may access, preserve
and disclose your personal information, other account
information and content if we believe doing so is required or
appropriate: (i) to comply with law enforcement or national
security requests and legal process, such as, a court order or
subpoena; (ii) to respond to your requests; (iii) to protect

Last Updated: 1/4/2020
The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 requires many companies manufacturing or selling products in California to disclose their efforts to address the issues of slavery and human trafficking, thus allowing consumers to make more informed choices about the products they buy.
The Critts Responsible Sourcing Program is made of the following components and underpinned by the goal of protecting and promoting healthy and sustainable working conditions as well as identifying and addressing modern slavery and human trafficking.
Transparency: Critts expects our suppliers to be open and honest with us about their successes and challenges. We also expect transparency into their supply chains – providing us the names and locations of their sub-suppliers. Everyone that chooses to wear our products should know how Critts is seeking to improve the lives of those that made it.
Contractual Obligations: Critts only sources from a select number of strategic suppliers known to respect the laws of their country and the rights of workers. Critts requires all new factories to certify, via our contracts and Code of Conduct, that materials they incorporate into our products comply with the laws relating to slavery and human trafficking of the countries in which they are doing business.
Onsite Assessment of Supplier Social Practices: Prior to Critts placing any orders, all new factories must undergo an onsite assessment by a professional, independent third-party social assessment firm. These social assessments ensure suppliers meet our minimum expectations with regards to working conditions as specified in our Code of Conduct. Onsite social assessments, which may or may not be unannounced, must include confidential worker interviews, review of documentation and records, and visual inspection of safety conditions. Assessment focus is also influenced and informed
by identified, material, and region-specific challenges to ensure the appropriate due diligence is undertaken. Ongoing and additional onsite assessment frequency is dictated by both country risk and past performance. Slavery and human trafficking are considered zero tolerance issues for Critts. Discovery of any Zero Tolerance (ZT) issues will automatically result in a failed assessment, and therefore, Critts will cease placing orders if the ZT violation(s) are not remedied in a responsible manner and under a rapid and agreed upon time frame.
Continuous Improvement: Critts maintains oversight resources and procedures to ensure suppliers follow-up and improve any identified deficiencies in a realistic and timely manner, emphasizing the need for root-cause-analysis and management systems that ensure long term performance and accountability. In any case, remedial efforts are always verified.
Training: Critts provides company employees who have direct responsibility for supply chain management with training on human trafficking and slavery, particularly with respect to mitigating risks within the supply chains of products.
California Prop 65
Critts shares your concerns about product safety, and we strive to ensure our products comply with all applicable safety and health requirements.
California's Proposition 65 entitles California consumers to special warnings for products that contain chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm if those products expose consumers to such chemicals above certain threshold levels.
Every order produced at the factory is tested to satisfy Prop 65 and we will always provide a copy of the report here – Click for Report
