iHerb Reviews Program Terms and Conditions
Please read this Agreement fully before participating in the iHerb Reviews Program.
The purpose of iHerb Reviews is for customers to share their personal experiences about products they have purchased. Personal, honest and candid product review provides a convenient way for iHerb customers to learn and evaluate products over time. Since these are personal reviews, the program is being provided to everyone “as is” with no express or implied warranty or conditions.
Your participation in iHerb Reviews is completely voluntary. In writing a review for iHerb Reviews, you guarantee:
a) You are at least 18 years of age.
b)You, or a family member living in the same household, must have purchased the reviewed product from iHerb (if multiple people reside in a household, we recommend pooling the reviews for that household in one account.)
c) You have created a product review for the purpose of sharing this information with others in the iHerb community.
Your Review on Our Site:
When you submit a Review, you allow iHerb a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative work, communicate, publish, publicly display and distribute such content. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating, promoting, and improving Reviews, and to develop new iHerb programs and services. This license continues even if you stop using our site or submitting Reviews.
Since iHerb Reviews is intended for iHerb community use, it is not intended for commercial purposes. Reviews should not include iHerb Rewards Codes, mention discounts or contain content that promotes iHerb Rewards.
You may share your iHerb Reviews as well as your iHerb Rewards Code on a personal blog as well as available social media accounts (e.g. Facebook, Twitter and Google +) subject to the terms and conditions of those accounts. However, your social media profile should not contain an avatar that could be misinterpreted to look like iHerb. Likewise, your blog or website should not resemble iHerb.
You represent and warrant that you will not engage in and/or facilitate spamming, advertising (including paid search advertising) or unsolicited commercial email or otherwise fail to comply with the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 (Public Law 108-187) or any successor legislation, and/or any other laws and/or regulations that govern email marketing and/or communications.
Your iHerb MyPage Profile is intended to provide some non-personal background information (e.g. your favorite hobby) to other customers. This helps others better understand the perspective of your review, not just whether you liked or did not like the product. For example, a person aged 25 using a product designed for someone over the age of 50 probably won’t have the same product experience.
Your iHerb MyPage Profile should not include iHerb Rewards Codes, mention discounts, URLs or contain content that promotes the iHerb Rewards program.
Your MyPage Profile Link Name should not mislead or misrepresent yourself to others. Phrases including, but not limited to “click me, open me, save $5" or "first-time customers” are not appropriate for this section. Instead, please select a MyPage Profile Link Name that applies to your personality, location or something unique about you -- such as "Aloha-Bob” or “Sarah-Skydiver.”
No Statements Regarding Product Claims:
Products sold through iHerb.com have not been evaluated by the food and Drug Administration and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. As part of your participation in the Program, you agree and understand that you are responsible for making truthful and accurate statements about products sold by us. You represent and warrant that you will not make any statements and/or product claims not approved by the U. S. Food and Drug Administration. If you are unsure about the answer about a product or service, refer others to product information on iHerb.com or contact the manufacturer directly. On each product page we have direct links to the manufacturer's website.
Modification and Termination of the Program:
We may modify the terms and conditions and/or terminate the Program at any time and by our sole discretion. If any modification is unacceptable to you, your only recourse is to terminate participation in the Program. Your continued participation in the Program will constitute binding acceptance of any changes.
Limitation of Liability:
Since these are personal reviews, we are not liable for any damages, claims or losses incurred by you or by other persons as a result of participation in this program or use of this website. In short, we exclude all warranties to the extent permitted by law.
These terms and conditions and/or any dispute, litigation or arbitration arising from or in any way related to these terms and conditions or the relationship of the parties, whether the claims asserted in such dispute, litigation or arbitration are based on contract, tort, equitable relief or on any other basis shall be governed, construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the United States and the State of California, without reference to rules governing choice of laws.
- Any litigation arising from or in any way related to these terms and conditions or the relationship of the parties must be brought in the federal or state courts located in Riverside County, California. You irrevocably consent to the jurisdiction of such courts and venue in Riverside County, California.
- You may not assign these terms and conditions, by operation of law or otherwise, without our prior written consent. Subject to that restriction, these terms and conditions will be binding on, inure to the benefit of and be enforceable against the parties and their respective successors and assigns.
- Our failure to enforce your strict performance of any provision of these terms and conditions will not constitute a waiver of our right to subsequently enforce such provision or any other provision of these terms and conditions.
- If any provision of these terms of conditions or the Program is deemed void, unlawful, or otherwise unenforceable for any reason, that provision will be severed from these terms and conditions or the Program and the remaining provisions of these terms and conditions and the Program will remain in force.
