The Site is offered and made available only to users 18 years of age or older or have reached the age of majority in the jurisdiction in which you live or reside.  If you are not yet 18 years old or not have reached the age of majority in the jurisdiction in which you live or reside, you must have a parent or guardian’s permission to view the Site.  Moreover, if your use of the Site is prohibited or restricted in any way by the laws, regulations or other governmental requirements of the jurisdiction in which you live or reside, or if, for any reason and at any time, you do not agree with all of the terms and conditions contained in these Terms of Use, please discontinue using the Site immediately.  BY ACCESSING THE SITE: (I) YOU CERTIFY THAT YOU ARE AT LEAST 18 YEARS OF AGE OR HAVE REACHED THE AGE OF MAJORITY IN THE JURISDICTION IN WHICH YOU LIVE OR RESIDE OR HAVE A PARENT’S OR GUARDIAN’S PERMISSION TO ACCESS THE SITE AND (II) YOU UNDERSTAND, ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS OF USE.  YOUR REMEDY FOR DISSATISFACTION WITH THE SITE, OR ANY SERVICES, CONTENT OR OTHER INFORMATION AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THE SITE, IS TO STOP USING THE SITE AND/OR THOSE PARTICULAR SERVICES OR CONTENT.  YOUR AGREEMENT WITH US REGARDING COMPLIANCE WITH THESE TERMS OF USE BECOMES EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY UPON COMMENCEMENT OF YOUR ACCESSING THE SITE.

When we use the term “Agreement” we mean and are referring to these Terms of Use, as well as any additional terms and conditions that apply to and govern your use of the features, functions and services we make available to you from time to time through the Site.  These Terms of Use and our use of the term “Agreement” also includes our Privacy Policy that can be accessed through a link on the Site’s home page.  The Privacy Policy is hereby incorporated into our Agreement with you by this reference and this Agreement will remain in full force and effect as long as you access and use the Site, even if your use of or participation in any particular service, feature, or function terminates, expires, ceases, is suspended or deactivated for any reason.

The words “use” or “using” in this Agreement, means any time an individual (a “user”), directly or indirectly, with or without the aid of a machine or device, does or attempts to access, interact with, use, display, view, print or copy from the Site, receive data from the Site, or in any way utilizes, benefits, takes advantage of or interacts with any function, service or feature of the Site, for any purpose whatsoever.  This Agreement does not cover your rights or responsibilities with respect to third party content or any links on the Site that may direct your browser or your Internet connection to third party Web sites or Web pages.


There are portions of the Site that we make available to users in the general public without registering (“General Users”) and General Users may visit and browse those portions of the Site without charge or obligation.  In order to access and use certain other services, features or functions of the Site, we require users to register. These users are classified as either “Grown Members,” “Born Members,” “Mentors,” “Investors,” or “Partners”.  Grown Members, Born Members, Mentors, Investors, and Partners are collectively “Service Members”.  Service Members will be required to execute separate agreements with Grown Global.  For instance, Grown Members and Born Members are required to sign our Fast Track agreement.  All respective agreements are required to be filled out and executed when Service Members register through the Site.

As part of the registration process, Service Members will need to select and provide us with a unique user name and choose a password (or we may assign an initial password which we will give you the option to change) which must form a unique combination (a “User ID”), and we also request that Service Members provide their e-mail address.  We may request that Service Members provide other personally identifiable information.  We may also, from time to time and at any time, provide Service Members with additional codes or passwords necessary to access and use certain other services, features or functions of the Site.  Please read our Privacy Policy, which describes the non-public, personally identifiable information we collect, use, disclose, manage and store.  A Service Member’s User ID is personal to such Service Member and a Service Member may not allow any others to use its User ID under any circumstances.  We are not liable for any harm caused or related to the theft or misappropriation or disclosure of all or any portion of a Service Member’s User ID, should a Service Member authorize anyone else to use its User ID.  Service Members agree to immediately notify us if they become aware of or believe there is or may have been any unauthorized use of (or activity using) a Service Member’s User ID or any other need to deactivate its User ID due to security concerns.

Email: [email protected]

To correct, repair or replace defective Products not produced by Grown Global, you must communicate with the specific manufacturer, licensor or distributor of the Products.  We have no responsibility or liability whatsoever for Products you may obtain from or through other Web sites or Web pages, even if you were directed or linked to such a Website or Web page through the Site.  Moreover, we are not responsible in any manner for assisting you in correcting any problem you may experience with such Products.  You agree that your sole and exclusive remedy for defective Products lies with the specific manufacturer, licensor or distributor of the Products and not Grown Global.  EXCEPT AS SPECIFICALLY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT, WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY ARISING FROM OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO ANY AND ALL PRODUCTS.  EXCEPT AS SPECIFICALLY SET FORTH IN WRITING, WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF ANY AND EVERY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO ANY AND ALL PRODUCTS, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

Our creation or transmission of an order confirmation does not signify acceptance of your order, nor constitute a binding confirmation of an offer to sell any Product, and we reserve the right to accept or decline your order for any reason up until the time the Product is actually delivered to you.  We reserve the right at any time, without prior notice, to limit or reduce the quantity you ordered of any Product and we will notify you if we do so.  All orders must obtain pre-approval with an acceptable method of payment, as established by our credit and authorization policies and practices in effect at the time of your order.  We may contact you and require additional information from you before we grant such pre-approval.  Products on the Site are offered for sale only to end user customers or as personal gifts to end user customers and not for resale.  We do not knowingly accept orders from dealers, exporters, wholesalers, distributors, resellers or other similar persons or companies, and reserve the right to refuse, cancel or seek the return of any Products that are purchased in violation of the foregoing restrictions.

You are responsible for any taxes imposed on the sale or use of Products and applicable taxes will be added to the amount charged for Products purchased on the Site.  If an order consists of multiple items, they may be shipped separately depending on availability.  We have no responsibility or liability whatsoever for goods or services you may obtain from or through other Websites or Web pages, even if you were directed or linked to such a site or page through the Site.  You agree to indemnify, defend and hold Grown Global, its affiliates and its and their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors, representatives, advertisers, service providers and suppliers harmless from and against any and all claims, actions, losses, expenses, damages and costs (including reasonable attorneys’ fees), resulting from your failure to pay any taxes to the proper governmental authorities.

When an order for Products is placed, it will be shipped to an address designated by the purchaser as long as that shipping address is compliant with the shipping restrictions contained on the Site.  All purchases from the Site are made pursuant to a shipment contract.  As a result, risk of loss and title for Products purchased from the Site pass to you upon delivery of the Products to the carrier.  You are responsible for filing any claims with carriers for damaged and/or lost shipments.


We try to assure the accuracy of all information displayed on the Site, but it is possible that the information contains errors, inaccuracies, or omissions.  In particular, with respect to product information, we have tried to accurately describe such information.  Despite our best efforts, some of such information may contain errors.  We are not liable for any harm caused or related to any such errors. 

With respect to Products offered on the Site, we have tried to accurately display colors, but depending on the specifications and settings of your computer and its monitor, the colors you see might not accurately depict the actual colors of the Product.  Certain weights, measures and similar descriptions are approximate and are provided for convenience purposes only.  In addition, due to typical and very common manufacturing inconsistencies, Product weights and measurements can vary slightly from the specific information set forth on the Site.  Minor Product variations in color, weights and measurements will not be considered as resulting in Products being deemed defective.

Despite our best efforts, a small number of the Products on the Site may be mispriced.  If a Product sold on the Site is listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect information, we reserve the right to refuse or cancel orders placed for that Product, whether or not the order has been confirmed and even if your credit or debit card account has been charged (in which event we will issue a credit to your account in the amount of the charge).  Please note that this policy applies only to Products sold and shipped by Grown Global.  Your purchases from third-party sellers are charged at the time you place your order, and third-party sellers may follow different policies in the event of a mispriced item.

13.          ADS AND MALWARE.

We take great care and pride in creating the Site.  We are always on the lookout for technical glitches that effect how the Site works.  When we find them on our end, we will fix them.  Unfortunately, your home computer may cause some glitches that effect how you see the Site — and that is totally beyond our control.

If you experience any unusual behavior, content or ads on the Site, it may be the result of Malware on your computer.  Malware — short for MALicious softWARE — is a term used to broadly classify a form of software which is installed in a computer system with malicious intentions, usually without the owner’s knowledge or permission.  Malware includes computer viruses, key loggers, malicious active content, rogue programs and dialers, among others.  While we continuously work closely with our partners to ensure that everything on the Site is working properly, sometimes Malware programs on your personal computer may interfere with your experience on the Site and on other sites that you visit.  If you do discover any Malware on your system, we suggest you speak with a qualified computer technician.


Although the Site may be accessible worldwide, we make no representation that materials thereon are lawful, appropriate or available for use in locations outside the United States of America, and accessing them from territories where its content is illegal is prohibited.  Those who choose to access the Site from other locations do so on their own initiative and risk, and are responsible for compliance with all local laws.  Any offer for any Product, service, and/or information made in connection with the Site is void where prohibited.


Without limitation, these Terms of Use, our Privacy Policy, and any additional terms and conditions that apply to your use of any specific services, features and functions or the purchase of any Products, as well as any other documents, policies and provisions we refer to in any of the foregoing, all of which are hereby incorporated herein by this reference, contains the entire understanding and agreement between you and Grown Global and supersedes any and all prior, inconsistent or other understandings relating to the Site and your use of the Site.  This Agreement cannot be modified, changed or terminated by you, except as specifically described herein.  We reserve the right in our sole and absolute discretion to modify this Agreement at any time.

If any provision of this Agreement is held to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, this will not affect any other provisions and this Agreement will be deemed amended to the extent necessary to make it legal, valid and enforceable.  Any provision which must survive in order to allow us to enforce its meaning shall survive termination of this Agreement; provided, however, no action arising out of this Agreement or your use of the Site, regardless of form or the basis of the claim, may be brought by you more than one year after the cause of action has arisen (or if multiple causes, from the date the first such cause of action arose).

This Agreement and your use of the Site shall be governed by, construed and enforced in accordance with the substantive laws of the State of Maryland, USA applicable to contracts made, executed and wholly performed in that State, and, for the purposes of any and all legal or equitable actions, you specifically agree and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the State and Federal Courts situated in the State of Maryland and agree you will not object to such jurisdiction or venue on the grounds of lack of personal jurisdiction, forum non conveniens or otherwise; provided, however, that notwithstanding the foregoing, you agree that Grown Global has the sole right and discretion to commence and prosecute an action against you in connection with this Agreement, in your home jurisdiction.  To the extent it may be applicable, you agree to opt out from and expressly exclude any applicability of the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act.


A printed version of this Agreement and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this Agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.

The headings contained in this Agreement are for reference purposes only and shall not affect in any way the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement.  Where text requires, words in the singular shall be deemed to include the plural and vice-versa, and words of any gender shall be deemed to include all genders.
