WHIFF CUSTOM FORMULATION AND WHIFF LABS MEMBER
When you use WHIFF Services and you create, own, are assigned, or inherit ownership of any custom formulation, you become a WHIFF Member (“Member”). We are excited to work with Members to develop your own unique scent. Have fun! Before we begin, please read the Terms below.
WHIFF is an exciting new concept, with no equal in the marketplace. What you see, hear, and learn while working with WHIFF team members, using WHIFF products, at the WHIFF facilities, or access to any WHIFF information is confidential or trade secret information belonging to WHIFF or its affiliates. The types of ingredients we use, the way we combine them, the way we package them, and our business models are just some examples of confidential or trade secret information you may observe or learn while working with WHIFF. WHIFF grants you the rights to use this information solely while working with WHIFF and exclusively for the purposes of creating a custom formulation at WHIFF.
As consideration for the experience of creating your own scent, you agree not to disclose to any other person or entity any of the WHIFF confidential or trade secret information. Your obligation of confidentiality will remain forever unless WHIFF makes the information public.
Conversely, as a scent manufacturer, WHIFF is subject to regulations that require it to disclose the contents of its scents. Therefore, you agree that WHIFF may disclose the contents of your custom fragrance, including the composition of it, in any form to anyone, including on its packaging, its website, and in regulatory disclosures.
OWNERSHIP OF THE CUSTOM FORMULATION OR SCENT
The goal of the custom fragrance experience is for Members to create a new, wonderful, unique scent that is all yours and available exclusively through WHIFF. Therefore, you represent to WHIFF that you will not knowingly reproduce any fragrance that has already been developed or is protected by a trade secret or other intellectual property right. You also represent that you will not knowingly violate any third party’s intellectual property rights with respect to any name, imagery, artwork, or other packaging “look and feel.”
Any scent formula Members create at WHIFF is the exclusive property of WHIFF and can only be available for purchase through WHIFF and its approved third party vendors. WHIFF shall own any and all rights in and to the custom scent, its name, its brand, and any art or images you associated with the scent, unless such art or images are not specifically designed for the scent and more generally associated with you or your brand (e.g., your logo), in which case you grant WHIFF a royalty-free, worldwide license to reproduce and to use such art and images to further the production of your scent. If you terminate your Membership, WHIFF shall have the right to use the art and images, and distribute your scent, until all inventory or in-process products are distributed. WHIFF and WHIFF alone shall own all the rights to make, have made, sell, license, reproduce, distribute, and otherwise exploit the scent, its name, its brand, and any related art or images.
Nothing in the Terms, or as part of the custom fragrance experience, shall be deemed to grant any right, title, or interest in any property of WHIFF, including any WHIFF trademarks, patents, patent applications, copyrights, or other intellectual property rights.
Also, you understand and agree the Terms do not create any obligation on WHIFF to disclose any confidential or trade secret information to you, to enter into any commercial relationship with you, or to market, promote, or offer your custom fragrance, and WHIFF makes no representations that it will make your scent available to its customers.
You agree that if you violate any of the Terms, monetary damages alone will not suffice to protect WHIFF’s interests, and, therefore, WHIFF shall be entitled to an injunction or other equitable relief to stop any such violation.
Lastly, you agree that if WHIFF changes names, changes ownership, or is merged into another company, the rights you have granted to WHIFF in the Terms survive and accrue to the benefit of WHIFF’s successors and assigns.
MEMBER’S AGREEMENT AND RELEASE
I agree to be bound by the Terms, as it may be modified from time to time. Furthermore, I understand that as a result of my scent being offered by WHIFF, my words, actions, and affiliations reflect on WHIFF. I acknowledge that WHIFF may terminate my Membership at any time and without notice if, in its sole and absolute discretion, WHIFF determines that my conduct or brand does not reflect positively on WHIFF.
You may terminate these Terms by providing written notice to us at email@example.com. Upon such termination, you shall cease all use of WHIFF Services and we shall be permitted to delete your account and any and all information associated therewith.
We may, with or without prior notice, terminate any of the rights granted by these Terms. you shall comply immediately with any termination or other notice, including, as applicable, by ceasing all use of WHIFF Services.

Notwithstanding any choice of law provision included in the Terms, this arbitration section is subject to the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1 et seq.) and the New York Convention on the Recognition of Foreign Arbitral Awards (9 U.S.C. §§ 201-208 or as codified in the jurisdiction where enforcement of the award is sought). The arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator, and will be limited solely to the dispute or controversy between you and the Company. Hearings shall be held as provided by the Code and if any in-person hearing is required, it shall be held in a venue chosen by the Company. Any participatory arbitration hearing that you attend shall take place in California. California state law will apply during the arbitration. The judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) shall be final and binding and may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
