You may not use the Site or export the content or products in violation of U.S. export laws and regulations. If you access this Site from a location outside of the United States, you are responsible for compliance with all local laws.
Notwithstanding any of these Terms and Conditions, Skinny Confidential reserves the right, without notice and in its sole discretion, for any reason or no reason, to terminate your ability to use the Site and to block or prevent future access to and use of the Site. You agree that Skinny Confidential shall not be liable for any termination of your use of or access to the Site.
Only you and Skinny Confidential shall be entitled to enforce these Terms and Conditions. No third party shall be entitled to enforce any of these Terms and Conditions.
If any provision of these Terms and Conditions shall be deemed unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and Conditions and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
The terms of this section survive any termination of the Terms and Conditions.
It is the express intent of the parties that the Terms and Conditions and all related documents have been drawn up in English.
Applicable Law and Venue
These Terms and Conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without resort to its conflict of law provisions. You agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to the Terms and Conditions or your use of the Site shall be filed only in the Superior Court of San Diego County, California, or the United States District Court for the Southern District of California, and except as stated herein you hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts over any suit, action, or proceeding arising out of the Terms and Conditions. Notwithstanding the above, any controversy or claim related to this Agreement shall be resolved exclusively by arbitration in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act (Title 9, U. S. Code) (the “Act”). The Act will apply even though this Agreement provides that it is governed by the laws of California. Arbitration proceedings will be determined in accordance with the Act, the rules and procedures for the arbitration of financial services disputes of JAMS/Endispute, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company or any successor thereof (“JAMS”), except that discovery in said arbitration shall be limited in scope to the specifics of liability on the Claim, and any discovery related to damages calculations or any financials shall be withheld until after liability has been decided by the arbitrator(s). In the event of any inconsistency between the JAMS rules and this paragraph, the terms of this paragraph shall control. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS and conducted in Los Angeles, California. All Claims shall be determined by one arbitrator; however, if Claims exceed One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000.00), upon the request of either Skinny Confidential or You, the Claims shall be decided by three arbitrators. All arbitration hearings shall commence within ninety (90) days of the demand for arbitration and close within ninety (90) days of commencement and the award of the arbitrator(s) shall be issued within thirty (30) days of the close of the hearing. However, the arbitrator(s), upon a showing of good cause, may extend the commencement of the hearing for up to an additional sixty (60) days. The arbitrator(s) shall provide a concise written statement of reasons for the award. The arbitration award may be submitted to any court having jurisdiction to be confirmed and enforced. The arbitrator(s) will have the authority to decide whether any Claim is barred by the statute of limitations and, if so, to dismiss the arbitration on that basis. For purposes of the application of the statute of limitations, the service on JAMS under applicable JAMS rules of a notice of Claim is the equivalent of the filing of a lawsuit. Any dispute concerning this arbitration provision or whether a Claim is arbitrable shall be determined by the arbitrator(s). The arbitrator(s) shall have the power to award legal fees pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. This paragraph does not limit the right of Skinny Confidential to: (i) exercise self-help remedies, such as, but not limited to, setoff; (ii) initiate judicial or non-judicial foreclosure against any real or personal property collateral; (iii) exercise any judicial or power of sale rights, or (iv) act in a court of law to obtain an interim remedy, such as, but not limited to, injunctive relief, writ of possession or appointment of a receiver, or additional or supplementary remedies. The prevailing party in any action or arbitration related to these Terms and Conditions shall be entitled to its reasonable attorney fees and costs.
The terms of this section survive any termination of the Terms and Conditions.

But first a note about children’s privacy . . .
We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If we learn that we have inadvertently obtained personal information on a child under the age of 13, that information will be deleted from our systems. Skinny Confidential encourages parents to go online with their kids. Here are a few tips to help make a child’s online experience safer:
- Teach kids never to give out personal information, unless supervised by a parent or responsible adult. This includes their name, address, phone number, school, etc.
- Know the sites your kids are visiting and which sites are appropriate.
- Look for Website and other privacy policies. Know how your child’s information is being treated.
What information does Skinny Confidential collect?
In collecting your personal information, we aim to provide you with a more customized experience. This information lets us provide services and features that we think are more likely to meet your needs. Of course, users may be able to use our products or services or browse our Websites without providing any personal information, but once you give us this personal information, you are not anonymous to us.
Skinny Confidential collects two types of information when you visit our Website(s) or you do business with us via any medium: information that may be used to identify you individually, such as your name, physical address, phone number, email address or date of birth (“personal information”); and non-personal information, such as IP addresses, the type of browser you are using, and aggregated information about user activities on our Website(s) (“non-personal information”).
Personal Information: We specifically request personal information from you at certain points on and off our Website(s). For example, when you call us, sign up for our products or subscriptions, visit or subscribe to our Website(s), use our mobile or web applications or when you purchase an item or service, we collect personal information which may include, without limitation, your name, shipping and billing addresses, telephone number, email address, credit card information, and date of birth. From time to time, we may also request or obtain personal information about you and your interests through surveys, contest/sweepstakes entry forms, our mobile applications, social media websites, or from Affiliated Companies or in other ways. You may always choose not to provide us with your personal information; however, this may limit our ability to provide you with a specific product or service or information, or to offer you personalized content.
Non-personal Information: When you visit our Website(s), we also collect non-personal information, such as your IP address, which is a number that can be used to identify your location and Internet Service Provider. We may also collect other information such as the type of browser or device you are using, the URL from which you came to our Website(s) and the URLs that you visited on our Website(s). A URL is the full address of a Website page, which may contain some personal or identifying information about the person who is viewing it.
Information We Obtain from Other Sources: We may collect information about you from other sources, including through interactive applications (such as mobile devices/applications and third-party services) and from commercially available sources (such as data aggregators and public databases). For example, if you access third-party services (such as Facebook Connect) through or in connection with our Website(s), we collect information available about you through those services, including, but not limited to, personal information as well as publicly observable data, such as activities on blogs, videos, and other online postings.
Do Not Track Signals. Some web browsers offer a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) signal that is a HTTP header field indicating your preference regarding tracking or cross-site user tracking. Although we’re currently unable to honor DNT signals, we do not collect personal information when you visit our Website(s) unless you provide such information to us. We also work with third parties that use tracking technologies on our Websites in order to provide tailored advertisements on our behalf and on behalf of other advertisers across the Internet. These companies may collect information about your activity on our sites and your interaction with our advertising and other communications, and use this information to determine which ads you see on third party websites and applications. For more information about this practice and to understand your options, please visit http://www.aboutads.info.

Third Party or Co-Branded Offers: Skinny Confidential occasionally partners with third parties (“Affiliated Company”) to offer additional products or services that we feel may be useful to you. In such case, we may disclose to an Affiliated Company certain limited information, such as your name and shipping address. If you request information or purchase a particular product or service from an Affiliated Company, we may disclose additional information such as your e-mail address, phone number and other contact information, and if you purchased a product, your credit card information. If you do not want us to disclose your personal information to the Affiliated Companies, please refer to the Opt-Out Policy below.
Cookies (again): We may use cookie and IP address information to count and track Website visits and purchases in the aggregate, to personalize the Website(s) for each unique user, to control the frequency of individual advertisements to individual computers, and to target advertisements and promotions to broad demographic segments. We may also use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Website(s).
Customer Service Issues and Contacts: We may use your personal information to contact you in response to customer service complaints you have submitted, to address a problem affecting your use of a product or service, or to verify information concerning a transaction.
Transaction Processing: When you make a purchase, we may need to provide personal information, including information such as your shipping address, billing information, telephone number, and credit card information, to third parties, including product manufacturers and shipping companies, as necessary solely to complete the transaction.
Legal Requirements: We may, in our sole discretion, disclose personal information when we deem necessary or appropriate to law enforcement or other entities or third parties as required by law or to protect our rights or the rights of others, to prevent harm to persons or property, to fight fraud, identity theft, or otherwise to comply with the law or legal process, to respond to claims, to protect our systems and customers, to ensure the integrity and operation of our business and systems, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Skinny Confidential and its employees or others.
Business and Accounting Disclosures: We may also disclose non-identifying transaction information to third parties for the purpose of accounting and record keeping. We may also disclose aggregate user data or non-personal information in order to describe our services to prospective business partners, advertisers, and others, but will do so only in a form that does not identify individual users.
Third Party Tools/Services: At various points and pages on our Website(s), you may be able to access or utilize tools and/or services offered by or in conjunction with third parties, including tools and services in connection with third-party “social media” and other sites that would allow personal information to be transferred to such third parties (for example, Facebook Connect). These third parties have separate data collection and privacy practices independent from ours, and thus Skinny Confidential cannot be responsible for their policies or activities. Please contact those third parties directly if you have questions about their privacy policies.
Other Disclosures: Occasionally, we may disclose personal information in other circumstances, but we will only do this if we have explained at the time we collect the information the purpose for which it will be disclosed.
