- JUPITER is committed to working with you in the event of a dispute. If you have a problem or dispute, you must first notify JUPITER and give JUPITER an opportunity to resolve your problem or dispute amicably. This includes you first sending a written description of your problem or dispute using the following:
Jupiter Research, LLC
C/O Customer Care
2801 East Camelback Road, Suite 180
Phoenix, Arizona 85016
You agree to negotiate with JUPITER in good faith about your problem or dispute. This should lead to resolution, but if for some reason your problem or dispute is not resolved satisfactorily within sixty (60) days after JUPITER’s receipt of your written description of it, you agree to the further dispute resolution provisions below.
Arbitration under this Agreement shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) in the State of Arizona. For claims of less than $75,000 USD, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes will apply; for claims over $75,000 USD, the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules will apply. The AAA rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879 (within the USA). Upon your filing of the arbitration demand, we will pay all filing, administration and arbitrator fees for claims that total less than $75,000 USD. For claims that total more than $75,000 USD, the payment of filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules. You and we agree to pay our own other fees, costs, and expenses, including those for any attorneys, experts, and witnesses. An arbitrator may award on an individual basis any relief that would be available in a court, including injunctive or declaratory relief and attorneys’ fees. In addition, for claims under $75,000 USD as to which you provided notice and negotiated in good faith with JUPITER as required above before initiating arbitration, if the arbitrator finds that you are the prevailing party in the arbitration, you will be entitled to a recovery of reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs. Except for claims determined to be frivolous, JUPITER agrees not to seek an award of attorneys’ fees in arbitration even if an award is otherwise available under applicable law. As a limited exception to the agreement to arbitrate, you and we agree that you may take claims to small claims court, if your claims qualify for hearing by such court.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, NO ARBITRATION OR OTHER CLAIM UNDER THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE JOINED TO ANY OTHER ARBITRATION OR CLAIM, INCLUDING ANY ARBITRATION OR CLAIM INVOLVING ANY OTHER CURRENT OR FORMER USER OF THE SITE, AND NO CLASS ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS SHALL BE PERMITTED. In the event that this CLASS ACTION WAIVER is deemed unenforceable, then any putative class action may only proceed in a court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration. WE BOTH AGREE THAT, WHETHER ANY CLAIM IS IN ARBITRATION OR IN COURT, YOU AND JUPITER BOTH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL INVOLVING ANY CLAIMS OR DISPUTES BETWEEN US.
If this arbitration provision is found unenforceable or to not apply for a given dispute, then the proceeding must be brought exclusively in a court of competent jurisdiction in Arizona. You hereby accept the exclusive jurisdiction of such court for this purpose.

If any provision of these Terms and Conditions of Sale shall be held void, voidable, invalid or inoperative, no other provision hereof shall be affected as a result, and accordingly, the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect as though such void, voidable, invalid or inoperative provision had not been contained herein, provided, however, that if such void, voidable, invalid or inoperative provision is a material term or condition, the parties shall be compelled to supply a substitute provision, negotiated in good faith, which comes closest to their original intention.

In the event of a waiver, whether in writing or by operation of law, such waiver shall not constitute a waiver of any other provision or the same provision on another occasion.
- Rights of Third Parties. Nothing in these Terms and Conditions of Sale shall be construed so as to give any right or remedy to any third party whatsoever.
- Governing Law. The sale of Products by Jupiter and these Terms and Conditions of Sale, together with all invoices, correspondence and other documents exchanged between Jupiter and Buyer, shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Arizona, USA, without regard to principles of conflicts of law or to the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale Of Goods (CISG), which is hereby specifically disclaimed by the parties with respect to all of the foregoing.
- Dispute Resolution. You agree to negotiate with Jupiter in good faith about your problem or dispute. This should lead to resolution, but if for some reason your problem or dispute is not resolved satisfactorily within sixty (60) days after Jupiter’s receipt of your written description of it, you agree to the further dispute resolution provisions below.
ARBITRATION: You agree that the sole and exclusive forum and remedy for any and all disputes and claims that cannot be resolved informally and that relate in any way to or arise out of these Terms and Conditions of Sale, shall be final and binding arbitration, except to the extent that you have in any manner infringed upon or violated or threatened to infringe upon or violate Jupiter’s or any third party’s intellectual property rights, in which case you acknowledge that arbitration is not an adequate remedy at law and that injunctive or other appropriate relief may be sought by Jupiter and/or the applicable third party(ies). You and we acknowledge that this agreement affects interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to arbitrations under this agreement (despite any other choice of law provision).
Arbitration under this agreement shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) in the State of Arizona. For claims of less than $75,000 USD, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes will apply; for claims over $75,000 USD, the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules will apply. The AAA rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879 (within the USA). Upon your filing of the arbitration demand, we will pay all filing, administration and arbitrator fees for claims that total less than $75,000 USD. For claims that total more than $75,000 USD, the payment of filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules. You and we agree to pay our own other fees, costs, and expenses, including those for any attorneys, experts, and witnesses. An arbitrator may award on an individual basis any relief that would be available in a court, including injunctive or declaratory relief and attorneys’ fees. In addition, for claims under $75,000 USD as to which you provided notice and negotiated in good faith with Jupiter as required above before initiating arbitration, if the arbitrator finds that you are the prevailing party in the arbitration, you will be entitled to a recovery of reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs. Except for claims determined to be frivolous, Jupiter agrees not to seek an award of attorneys’ fees in arbitration even if an award is otherwise available under applicable law. As a limited exception to the agreement to arbitrate, you and we agree that you may take claims to small claims court, if your claims qualify for hearing by such court.
YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO OPT OUT OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISION, THEN NO LATER THAN THIRTY (30) DAYS AFTER THE DATE YOU CONTACTED JUPITER VIA ITS SITE CONTACT PAGE OR VIA EMAIL FOR THE FIRST TIME, AS RECORDED BY JUPITER’S SYSTEMS THAT TRACK CONTACTS, YOU MAY OPT OUT OF THIS PART OF THE AGREEMENT BY SENDING AN EMAIL TO email@example.com. Please provide your full name, address (including street address, city, state, and zip code), and email address to which the opt-out applies. This procedure is the only way you can opt out of this agreement to arbitrate. Any opt-out received after the thirty (30) day time period will not be valid, and you must pursue your claim via arbitration pursuant to these Terms and Conditions of Sale. If you opt out of the agreement to arbitrate, all other parts of these Terms and Conditions of Sale will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this agreement to arbitrate has no effect on any previous, other, or future arbitration agreements that you may have with Jupiter.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, NO ARBITRATION OR OTHER CLAIM UNDER THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE JOINED TO ANY OTHER ARBITRATION OR CLAIM, AND NO CLASS ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS SHALL BE PERMITTED. In the event that this CLASS ACTION WAIVER is deemed unenforceable, then any putative class action may only proceed in a court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration. WE BOTH AGREE THAT, WHETHER ANY CLAIM IS IN ARBITRATION OR IN COURT, YOU AND JUPITER BOTH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL INVOLVING ANY CLAIMS OR DISPUTES BETWEEN US.
If this arbitration provision is found unenforceable or to not apply for a given dispute, then the proceeding must be brought exclusively in a court of competent jurisdiction in Arizona. You hereby accept the exclusive jurisdiction of such court for this purpose.
In no event shall any claim, action or proceeding by you related in any way to the Terms and Conditions of Sale, be instituted more than one (1) year after the cause of action arose.

Last Revised December 29, 2021. This Limited Warranties section applies both to licensed businesses purchasing wholesale products and to retail purchasers/consumers who purchase through the retailers.

This warranty regarding Jupiter Research Devices does NOT cover normal wear and tear. This warranty excludes damage resulting from abuse, accident, modifications, or otherwise damaged through the act or neglect of the consumer or a third party. Jupiter Research makes no warranties as to other parts with which such Devices may be combined, including, but not limited to, any bonding or connection between the Device and any other parts with which it is joined by a party other than Jupiter Research. Jupiter Research will replace any defective Devices with like-kind product. Reimbursement for the replacement of the contents (e.g., oil) of any cartridges used with the Device are excluded by this warranty.
Jupiter Research Cartridge Limited Warranty and Compatibility with Extracts Cartridge Warranty:
Jupiter liquid and pod cartridges (altogether “Cartridges”) are guaranteed against defects in materials and workmanship during normal and customary use for a period of twelve (12) months from the date of manufacture (which can be identified by the lot code) or six (6) months from the date of purchase from an authorized Jupiter Research retailer or reseller (if an end consumer).

*applicable to licensed businesses
Many of our plastic reservoir products use Engineering Thermoplastic (ETP) for the housing. We chose ETP for its clarity, strength, and chemical compatibility. Although ETP is known for its chemical resistance, you should be aware it is not fully compatible with many terpenes frequently found in extracts. Due to the known variation in extracts, Jupiter cannot be responsible for chemical compatibility with any extract.
You have invested time and money in formulating your extract to meet your customers’ expectations. Jupiter Research has similarly invested in designing and testing the Device you are going to use to present your extract to your customer. Everyone’s extracts are different: different strains, indoor v. outdoor grown, a distillate with terps added back, winterized BHO, CO2, or Ethanol extracts. These have all been used successfully in Jupiter Devices. While infrequent, extracts exist that will not function properly or have an adverse reaction in Jupiter Cartridges. These incompatibilities end up costing time and money when they are discovered on the production line.
Although incompatibility is rare, losses can mount rapidly during production. In order to eliminate potential losses due to the discovery of incompatibility during production, we strongly suggest that you test your extract in Jupiter Devices before you go to production. Incompatibility with materials in the Devices is not covered by Jupiter’s warranty. This is true if you are a new client or an existing client with a new formulation. We can supply sample quantities, and a suggested test protocol is detailed below. For extracts that are not compatible with ETP, we can supply alternative materials including glass (may require an additional charge). We are confident that we can supply a Device that will meet your needs, but we cannot guarantee it.
Suggested Minimum Test Protocol:
- Fill at least 10 Cartridges/Devices with extract using the filling procedure supplied with the Cartridge/Device samples.
- Allow the Cartridges/Devices to stand upright with the mouthpiece pointing upwards for 1 hour. Inspect for cracks and leaks. Photograph any cracks or leaks.
- Allow the Cartridges/Devices to remain standing for 5-7 days. Inspect for cracks and leaks. Photograph any cracks or leaks.

Jupiter Research already have a consistent level of data protection and security across our organisation, however, it is our aim to be fully compliant with the GDPR by completing a company-wide information audit to identify and assess what personal information we hold, where it comes from, how and why it is processed and if and to whom it is disclosed.
- Policies & Procedures – data protection policies and procedures to meet the requirements and standards of the GDPR and any relevant data protection laws, including: –
