dispute resolution
ARBITRATION PROVISION AND JURY TRIAL AND CLASS ACTION WAIVERS PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS. YOU AGREE THAT BY ACCESSING OR USING THE SITES, PARTICIPATING ON THE TARTE CHANNELS WITH TARTE, OR SIGNING UP FOR THE MOBILE PROGRAM, YOU ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A COURT OR JURY TRIAL OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. YOU AGREE THAT YOU MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST TARTE ONLY IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR COLLECTIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. ANY ARBITRATION WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS AND CLASS ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED.

YOU AGREE THAT ANY AND ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES ARISING FROM OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOUR USE OF THE SITES, YOUR PARTICIPATION IN THE MOBILE PROGRAM, OR YOUR DEALINGS WITH TARTE SHALL BE FINALLY SETTLED AND RESOLVED THROUGH BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AS DESCRIBED IN THIS SECTION.

THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE IS INTENDED TO BE INTERPRETED BROADLY. THE ARBITRATION WILL BE GOVERNED BY THE COMMERCIAL ARBITRATION RULES AND THE SUPPLEMENTARY PROCEDURES FOR CONSUMER RELATED DISPUTES OF THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION (AAA), AS MODIFIED BY THIS SECTION. THE ARBITRATION WILL BE CONDUCTED USING ONE ARBITRATOR WITH SUBSTANTIAL EXPERIENCE IN RESOLVING COMMERCIAL CONTRACT DISPUTES, WHO SHALL BE SELECTED FROM THE APPROPRIATE LIST OF ARBITRATORS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE ARBITRATION RULES AND PROCEDURES OF ANY ARBITRATION ORGANIZATION OR ARBITRATOR THAT YOU AND TARTE AGREE UPON IN WRITING OR THAT IS APPOINTED PURSUANT TO SECTION 5 OF THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT.

FOR ANY CLAIM WHERE THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF THE AWARD SOUGHT IS $10,000 OR LESS, THE ARBITRATOR, YOU AND TARTE MUST ABIDE BY THE FOLLOWING RULES: (A) THE ARBITRATION SHALL BE CONDUCTED SOLELY BASED ON TELEPHONE OR ONLINE APPEARANCES AND/OR WRITTEN SUBMISSIONS; AND (B) THE ARBITRATION SHALL NOT INVOLVE ANY PERSONAL APPEARANCE BY THE PARTIES OR WITNESSES UNLESS OTHERWISE MUTUALLY AGREED BY THE PARTIES. IF THE CLAIM EXCEEDS $10,000, THE RIGHT TO A HEARING WILL BE DETERMINED BY THE AAA RULES, AND THE HEARING (IF ANY) MUST TAKE PLACE IN NEW YORK, NEW YORK. THE ARBITRATOR’S RULING IS BINDING AND MAY BE ENTERED AS A JUDGMENT IN ANY COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION, OR APPLICATION MAY BE MADE TO SUCH COURT FOR JUDICIAL ACCEPTANCE OF ANY AWARD AND AN ORDER OF ENFORCEMENT, AS THE CASE MAY BE.

THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION. ARBITRATION PROCEDURES ARE SIMPLER AND MORE LIMITED THAN RULES APPLICABLE IN COURT AND REVIEW BY A COURT IS LIMITED.

YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO HAVE A COURT OR JURY TRIAL OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR CLASS ARBITRATION. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT BY AGREEING TO RESOLVE DISPUTES THROUGH INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION, YOU ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A COURT OR JURY TRIAL. ANY DISPUTE SHALL BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, AND NOT AS A CLASS ACTION, REPRESENTATIVE ACTION, CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY SIMILAR PROCEEDING. THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE THE CLAIMS OF MULTIPLE PARTIES.

ANY CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOUR USE OF THE SITES, YOUR PARTICIPATION IN THE MOBILE PROGRAM, OR YOUR DEALINGS WITH TARTE MUST BE COMMENCED IN ARBITRATION WITHIN TWO (2) YEARS AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES. AFTER THAT TWO (2)-YEAR PERIOD, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW TIME LIMITATIONS OTHER THAN THOSE SET FORTH IN SUCH STATE’S STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS LAWS. IN SUCH CASES, THE APPLICABLE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS PROVIDED FOR UNDER THE LAWS OF SUCH STATE SHALL APPLY.

YOU AGREE THAT ALL CHALLENGES TO THE VALIDITY AND APPLICABILITY OF THE ARBITRATION PROVISION—I.E. WHETHER A PARTICULAR CLAIM OR DISPUTE IS SUBJECT TO ARBITRATION—SHALL BE DETERMINED BY THE ARBITRATOR. NOTWITHSTANDING ANY PROVISION IN THESE TERMS TO THE CONTRARY, IF THE CLASS-ACTION WAIVER ABOVE IS DEEMED INVALID OR UNENFORCEABLE, YOU AGREE THAT YOU SHALL NOT SEEK TO, AND WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO, ARBITRATE CLASS OR COLLECTIVE CLAIMS. IF THE ARBITRATION PROVISION IN THIS SECTION IS FOUND UNENFORCEABLE OR TO NOT APPLY FOR A GIVEN DISPUTE, THEN THE PROCEEDING MUST BE BROUGHT EXCLUSIVELY IN THE STATE COURTS OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION OR THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURTS LOCATED IN NEW YORK, NEW YORK, AS APPROPRIATE, AND YOU AGREE TO SUBMIT TO THE PERSONAL JURISDICTION OF EACH OF THESE COURTS FOR THE PURPOSE OF LITIGATING SUCH CLAIMS OR DISPUTES, AND YOU STILL WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO INITIATE OR PROCEED IN A CLASS OR COLLECTIVE ACTION, AND REMAIN BOUND BY ANY AND ALL LIMITATIONS ON LIABILITY AND DAMAGES INCLUDED IN THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS. THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER WILL SURVIVE TERMINATION OF YOUR USE OF THE SITES OR TARTE CHANNELS, YOUR PARTICIPATION IN THE MOBILE PROGRAM, AND YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH TARTE. THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT INVOLVES INTERSTATE COMMERCE AND, THEREFORE, SHALL BE GOVERNED BY THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16 (FAA), AND NOT BY STATE LAW. INFORMATION ON AAA AND HOW TO START ARBITRATION CAN BE FOUND AT WWW.ADR.ORG. IF YOU WISH TO INITIATE ARBITRATION AGAINST TARTE, YOU MUST SEND WRITTEN NOTICE TO TARTE AT

loyalty program
* Must be enrolled in the tarte loyalty program in order to earn and receive points. Points will be deposited into your account after your order has shipped – not at the time of purchase. Rewards for purchases are only available for purchases made via the Sites. Rewards for Qualified Activities are only available for activities performed while logged into the Sites or, where applicable, in response to an email from Tarte.

loyalty program eligibility
To enroll in the tarte loyalty program, you must be at least 18 years old and must be a resident of a country that Tarte ships products to and makes the Sites available. For a list of countries that are excluded from the tarte loyalty program, please click here (the “Excluded Countries”). If you are eligible, you can register for the tarte loyalty program at https://tartecosmetics.com/en_US/team-tarte/.

how to earn points
You will receive 100 points for each full-sized item you purchase and 50 points for each mini or sale item you purchase on tarte.com. Points will be awarded to your account and reflected in your point balance when your order is SHIPPED. When products are returned for a refund to the original payment method, points will be deducted from your account for the amount of return net of taxes, shipping and handling when the product(s) is/are received and return is processed at the tarte warehouse (note: your account may have a negative balance if the dollar amount returned is greater than your current redeemable point balance).

You will also receive points for engaging in the Qualified Activities listed below and on the Rewards page on the Sites in accordance with the time frames provided below and on the Rewards page on the Sites.

You agree not to abuse the tarte Rewards page by conduct which is detrimental to the interests of tarte, including without limitation, attempting to accrue points or redeem points in a manner inconsistent with these Rewards Terms or the intent of these terms, attempting to earn points through illegitimate channels, participating in redemption fraud, or tampering with the Program or its tools. Tarte reserves the right to add, modify and/or delete any Qualified Activity, the points you can earn in connection with completing any Qualified Activity and/or any limitation placed on total points you can earn in connection with any Qualified Activity. For a complete list of Qualified Activities and the corresponding number of points you can earn for each Qualified Activity, please see outlined earning qualifications below.

You can go online and view your point balance at any time by logging into your tarte.com account and visiting the Team Tarte Rewards page. Points cannot be transferred or redeemed for cash.

MEMBER LEVELS/POINT LIFE CYCLE:
There are three (3) levels within the Program which are determined by the number of points that you accumulate within the January through December 31 calendar year (via spend and non-spend qualifying activities) in your account. By creating an account, you will be automatically enrolled in the Program at the “startelette” Member Level. Earn at least 1,500 points in order to automatically proceed to the “varsity” Member Level. If you earn at least 3,000 points you will then automatically qualify for the “MVT” Member Level.

Once you reach a specific Member Level within the Program, you may receive exclusive benefits that are only available to members at that Member Level. The points accrued within the January through December calendar year will determine the measure of your Member Level within the Program for the following calendar year. Once points accumulated meet or exceed the membership level point requirements, you will automatically qualify and be entered into that membership level regardless of your "redeemable points balance."

Points are divided into two life cycles: "Redeemable Points" and "Lifetime Points." Your Redeemable Points are the number of points you have available to redeem rewards. This number decreases with each reward you redeem, and will increase with the completion of Qualified Activities. Your Redeemable Points will also decrease should you issue a return on any given purchase. Your Lifetime points are the number of points that you have earned since you became a member of the Program.

ACCOUNT CANCELLATION/POINT EXPIRATION:
Once you register for the Program, if you do not make a purchase on the Sites or complete one of the following qualifying activities while logged into your tarte.com account within thirteen (13) months of your last purchase or last qualifying activity, tarte shall expire your accrued but unused Redeemable points on or after the last day of your last activity.

  • Write a product review on the Sites
  • Click a link in an email from Tarte
  • Complete a Team Tarte survey
  • Ask a question about a product on the Sites
  • Answer a question about a product on the Sites
  • Redeem a reward
  • Refer a friend to shop on the Sites

Tarte may, at its discretion, send you periodic notifications to remind you that your Redeemable points will expire upon the 13th month of inactivity (inactivity is defined by the user not making a purchase or completing one of the qualifying activities listed above in the prior 13 months). However, it is your responsibility to monitor your Program account and point balance status. (Please note that even if your Redeemable points expire, your Lifetime points will remain in your Program account and you will remain at your current Member Level for the remainder of the calendar year.)

rewards:
NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY IN THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, EFFECTIVE MAY 1, 2020, REWARDS WILL NOT BE SHIPPED TO AN ADDRESS IN AN EXCLUDED COUNTRY.

To redeem your points for a reward item, visit the Rewards page and follow the directions provided. Each reward item has its own specific point value as set forth on the Rewards page.

Please visit the Rewards page for a current list of reward items. Once you redeem your points for a reward, your transaction cannot be reversed or refunded. Reward redemptions are final. Reward items will be provided on a first-come, first-serve basis and may be subject to availability, so once a reward item has been depleted such reward item may no longer be available. Additional terms and conditions may apply to Rewards and will be set forth on the Rewards page.

All reward item details are at the sole discretion of tarte. You cannot transfer, substitute or redeem rewards for cash. Tarte reserves the right to substitute a reward item of comparable or greater value, at its sole discretion. You are responsible for all federal, state and local taxes as well as any other costs or expenses associated with a reward item not specified herein or on the Website as being provided. Rewards are considered taxable income and are subject to local, state and federal taxes. Reward items will be mailed to the mailing address provided at checkout or the email address provided in your Program account, as applicable. Please note that you may be charged shipping and handling fees as noted on the Website (during checkout) for any reward items mailed to you, unless a shipping promotion applies (if any). You are responsible for updating your registration information. Rewards that can be delivered electronically will be delivered within approximately 48 hours from the date the redemption is fully processed. The Rewards Released Parties (as defined below) shall not be liable for any damages, losses or delays in connection with any shipments.

Reward coupon codes will be reflected in your Program account on the Rewards page. If a reward coupon code expires, the expiration date will be clearly disclosed and reward coupon code must be used by such expiration date or it will be void. Please follow the instructions provided along with the reward coupon code for your specific redemption instructions. Reward coupon codes will generally automatically be issued within 24 hours after your rewards redemption. Multiple reward coupon codes cannot be combined in a single order. Reward coupon codes are not redeemable towards purchases of gift cards. The reward coupon code will be applied to the qualifying purchase subtotal, after all discounts have been applied but before applicable taxes, shipping and handling charges.

Reward coupon codes may only be redeemed by the Program member to whom the reward coupon code was issued. Reward coupon codes are not redeemable for cash. Reward coupon codes cannot be applied to previous purchases. Reward coupon codes may not be combined with any other discounts, promotions or offers, except for any shipping promotions available on the Website (if any).

The surprise birthday gift, anniversary gift and tier welcome gift (for eligible membership levels) may not be returned or exchanged and may not be redeemed for cash. These gifts will be available for redemption on the Rewards page following the completion of the qualifying activity or event.

You will receive the indicated point amounts for completing the following activities. There may be limitations placed on how often and/or how many total points you can earn by completing any qualified activity, and any such limitations are stated below. Points will be reflected in your redeemable point balance within the awardment timing indicated.

Activity Points Per Action

Deluxe samples and standard samples offered may differ from those depicted on the tarte webpage and are subject to change at any time. During the month of your birthday, qualifying tier 2 members will accrue 2x points earned in tarte.com purchases and qualifying tier 3 members will receive 3x points earned on tarte.com purchases. The bonus points earned during your birthday month will be awarded and reflected in your points balance within 2 weeks of the close of the birthday month. Tarte points and the rewards redeemed are not valid for cash or credits. In jurisdictions that require a cash value, tarte points are worth $0.000001 per point. The tarte points program is subject to change at any time without notice. Please contact customer service at squad@tarte.com with any additional questions. Tarte has the right to cancel any orders due to unauthorized use.

electronic gift cards
eGift Cards (which may also be referred to as electronic gift cards, electronic gift certificates or eGift certificates) can be redeemed only online at the Sites. Recipients of eGift Cards must have e-mail and access to the Internet in order to receive and redeem their online eGift Card.

Promotional offers and discounts cannot be applied to the purchase of eGift Cards. The value of eGift Card purchases are not used to determine promotional thresholds. Free gifts, specials, deluxe samples are not valid when purchasing an eGift Card.

When you purchase an online eGift Card from the Sites, we will automatically send the recipient an e-mail within 24 hours, including the eGift Card code and instructions for use on the Sites. The code should be entered onto the Payment Information page during the checkout process. If the amount of the order exceeds the amount of the eGift Card, the recipient will need to use a credit card to pay for the balance of the order. If any online store credit is available to the recipient, then the store credit will automatically be applied first. Except as required by law, eGift Cards are not redeemable for cash. eGift Cards purchased by our customers do not expire and are not subject to any fees or charges. If we issue promotional eGift Cards or coupon codes in the future as a benefit to the members of our loyalty program, or otherwise, those promotional eGift Cards or coupon codes may be subject to an expiration date.

You can use one eGift Card towards the purchase of your order. Redemption of multiple eGift Cards for one order is not available at this time. If you misplace or delete your eGift Card, send an e-mail to our Customer Service department and we will resend the redemption code for the eGift Card to the original recipient address. Please remember to include the recipient e-mail address and/or the order number with which it was purchased. If you sent the eGift Card to the wrong e-mail address, please contact us at squad@tarte.com or +1 646-971-2676. Our representatives will only be able to resend your eGift to a different recipient if it has not been redeemed. Promotional eGift Cards and coupons cannot be resent or recovered if deleted. If your eGift Card code is valid and unredeemed but not functional, our sole obligation will be to replace the eGift Card.

eGift Cards that have already been sent but have not yet been redeemed can be returned to the original purchaser's credit card. The eGift Card is automatically cancelled upon the return. Please note that we cannot recall an eGift Card e-mail after it has been sent. If the merchandise purchased with an eGift Card is returned, an online store credit will be issued to the gift recipient for the full amount of the merchandise return. Tarte does not offer exchanges or cash refunds for eGift Card purchases. Any funds charged to a credit card will be automatically credited to the same card. In addition to any other remedies, Tarte reserves the right to close your account or require an alternative form of payment if a fraudulently obtained eGift Card is presented for redemption.

electronic gift cards
eGift Cards (which may also be referred to as electronic gift cards, electronic gift certificates or eGift certificates) can be redeemed only online at the Sites. Recipients of eGift Cards must have e-mail and access to the Internet in order to receive and redeem their online eGift Card.

Promotional offers and discounts cannot be applied to the purchase of eGift Cards. The value of eGift Card purchases are not used to determine promotional thresholds. Free gifts, specials, deluxe samples are not valid when purchasing an eGift Card. The use of eGift Cards is subject to these Terms and Conditions and applicable law. eGift Cards may only be used to purchase merchandise on the Sites and cannot be used to purchase other eGift Cards. Tarte will not honor eGift Cards sold by any other vendor or person other than Tarte. eGift Cards cannot be used at other retailers to purchase Tarte products.

When you purchase an online eGift Card from the Sites, we will automatically send the recipient an e-mail within 24 hours, including the eGift Card code and instructions for use on the Sites. The code should be entered onto the Payment Information page during the checkout process. If the amount of the order exceeds the amount of the eGift Card, the recipient will need to use a credit card to pay for the balance of the order. If any online store credit is available to the recipient, then the store credit will automatically be applied first.

Except as required by law, eGift Cards are not redeemable for cash. eGift Cards purchased by our customers do not expire and are not subject to any fees or charges. If we issue promotional eGift Cards or coupon codes in the future as a benefit to the members of our loyalty program, or otherwise, those promotional eGift Cards or coupon codes may be subject to an expiration date.

You can use one eGift Card towards the purchase of your order. Redemption of multiple eGift Cards for one order is not available at this time.

If you misplace or delete your eGift Card, send an e-mail to our Customer Service department and we will resend the redemption code for the eGift Card to the original recipient address. Please remember to include the recipient e-mail address and/or the order number with which it was purchased. If you sent the eGift Card to the wrong e-mail address, please contact us at squad@tarte.com or +1 646-971-2676. Our representatives will only be able to resend your eGift to a different recipient if it has not been redeemed.

Promotional eGift Cards and coupons cannot be resent or recovered if deleted.

If your eGift Card code is valid and unredeemed but not functional, our sole obligation will be to replace the eGift Card.

eGift Cards that have already been sent but have not yet been redeemed can be returned to the original purchaser's credit card. The eGift Card is automatically cancelled upon the return. Please note that we cannot recall an eGift Card e-mail after it has been sent.

If the merchandise purchased with an eGift Card is returned, an online store credit will be issued to the gift recipient for the full amount of the merchandise return. Tarte does not offer exchanges or cash refunds for eGift Card purchases. Any funds charged to a credit card will be automatically credited to the same card. In addition to any other remedies, Tarte reserves the right to close your account or require an alternative form of payment if a fraudulently obtained eGift Card is presented for redemption.
