Ordering, Shipping, and Returns
All orders placed through the Website are subject to our acceptance. We cannot guarantee that all items listed as "in stock" will ship right away, as inventory changes significantly from day-to-day. In rare cases, an item may be in stock when you place an order but is sold out by the time we attempt to process the order. We will notify you if this happens and cancel the item from your order, or we will notify you if a shipment may be made at a later date.
We strive to process and ship out orders the following business day. We attempt to post any delay in the shipping process to our Website. Typically, flat rate shipping is 5-8 business days, expedited shipping is 3-5 business days, and express shipping is 1-3 business days. All orders come with tracking numbers and shipped via USPS from Tualatin, Oregon.
International shipments may take up to 8 weeks due to the varying requirements and processing times customs departments. We do not ship to all countries. Shipping options are listed in the checkout area of the Website.

Termination; Cooperation with Law Enforcement
THE WEBSITE IS PROVIDED “AS IS,” “AS AVAILABLE,” AND WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND. YOU USE THE WEBSITE AT YOUR OWN SOLE RISK. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WE DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND RELATED TO YOUR USE OF THE WEBSITE, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF TITLE, QUALITY, PERFORMANCE, MERCHANTABILITY, SUITABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ACCURACY, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE WEBSITE WILL PROVIDE CONTINUOUS, PROMPT, SECURE, OR ERROR-FREE SERVICE. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT WE DO NOT OFFER MEDICAL ADVICE OR DIAGNOSES OR ENGAGE IN THE PRACTICE OF MEDICINE. THE WEBSITE IS NOT INTENDED TO BE, AND DOES NOT CONSTITUTE, A SUBSTITUTE FOR PROFESSIONAL MEDICAL ADVICE, DIAGNOSIS OR TREATMENT AND ARE OFFERED FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. YOU SPECIFICALLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY HEALTHCARE OR RELATED DECISIONS MADE BY YOU OR YOUR HEALTHCARE PROVIDER BASED UPON INFORMATION ON THE WEBSITE, WHETHER SUCH INFORMATION IS ACCURATE OR INACCURATE.
WITH RESPECT TO PRODUCTS PURCHASED THROUGH THE WEBSITE, WE LIMIT THE DURATION AND REMEDIES OF ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TO THE DURATION OF THE EXPRESS LIMITED WARRANTY DESCRIBED ABOVE UNDER “LIMITED WARRANTY AND RETURNS”.
Limitation of Liability and Damages
THE REMEDIES DESCRIBED ABOVE UNDER “LIMITED WARRANTY AND RETURNS” ARE YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES AND OUR ENTIRE LIABILITY FOR ANY BREACH OF THE LIMITED PRODUCT WARRANTY PROVIDED BY PROTALUS. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, PROTALUS, ITS AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SERVICES PROVIDERS AND LICENSORS WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANYONE ELSE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS, GOODWILL, USE, DATA OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES (REGARDLESS OF WHETHER WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES), HOWEVER CAUSED, WHETHER BASED ON UPON CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY IN TORT, WARRANTY OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY.

The exclusions and limitations of damages set forth above are fundamental elements of the basis of the bargain between Protalus and you. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver
Arbitration is mandatory for the claims covered under this arbitration agreement. You agree that Protalus and you are each waiving the right to trial by a jury, and that any arbitration will take place on an individual basis. You hereby waive the ability to participate in a class action.
The parties agree that the arbitrator will have exclusive authority to resolve any disputes relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of this arbitration agreement.
You and Protalus each retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement or misappropriation of a party’s trade secrets or intellectual property rights.
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its Consumer Arbitration Rules (currently available at https://www.adr.org/Rules or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879). The arbitrator will conduct hearings, if any, by teleconference or videoconference, rather than by personal appearances, unless the arbitrator determines that an in-person hearing is appropriate. Any in-person appearances will be held at a location that is reasonably convenient to both parties. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, the arbitrator will determine the location. If you demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Protalus will contribute to your filing and hearing fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. The arbitrator’s decision will follow the terms of this Agreement (including the Limitation of Liability provision) and will be final and binding. The arbitrator will have authority to award temporary, interim, or permanent injunctive relief or relief providing for specific performance of this Agreement, but only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual claim before the arbitrator. The award rendered by the arbitrator may be confirmed and enforced in any court having jurisdiction.
• Limitations on Claims. Any cause of action or claim you may have with respect to Protalus or the Website (including without limitation the purchase of products and services) must be commenced within one year after the claim or cause of action arises.
