Some of our Sites may allow you to purchase products directly on them (“eCommerce Sites”). Although we have a variety of eCommerce Sites that sell different types of products and services, the provisions of this Agreement apply to all of them.
Refunds, returns, and exchanges will not be issued for products that have not been purchased directly through an eCommerce Site. We reserve the right to deny a refund, return, or exchange, and/or issue a shopping credit to your Account on the Site in our sole discretion for any reason including, without limitation, if we determine that you are not entitled to a refund, return, exchange, and/or issue a shopping credit or if our policy is being abused. We may use any means available to us, including coordination with other companies, to determine if you are abusing our policy. This decision is made in our sole discretion and determination.
We may make improvements and/or changes in products or services described on the Sites, add new features, or terminate a Site at any time without notice. We also: (a) reserve the right to change the goods and services advertised or offered for sale through an eCommerce Site, the prices, ingredients or specifications of such goods and services, and any promotional offers at any time without any notice or liability to you or any other person; (b) cannot guarantee that goods or services advertised or offered for sale on an eCommerce Site will be available when ordered or thereafter; (c) reserve the right to limit quantities sold or made available for sale; (d) do not warrant that information on a Site (including without limitation product descriptions, colors or photographs) is accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free; and (e) reserve the right to modify, cancel, terminate or not process orders (including accepted orders) where the price or other material information on an eCommerce Site is inaccurate, where we have insufficient quantities to fulfill an order or for any other reason in our sole discretion. If we do not process an order for such reason, we will either not charge you or will apply credit to the payment type used in the order. Some jurisdictions may not allow the exclusions and disclaimers of certain implied warranties, so some of the provisions of this section may not apply to you. Unless otherwise indicated (or if the eCommerce Site has a non-U.S. domain), products sold on the eCommerce Sites are intended for end use in the United States and are not labeled or intended for international distribution.
Taxes: If we are legally required to collect sales tax on merchandise you order, the tax amount will be added automatically to your purchase price. On rare occasions an error in our state sales tax database may cause the sales tax charge to be incorrect. If this happens, at any time up to two years from your date of purchase you may contact us for a refund of tax overcharges. This right to a refund is your exclusive remedy for sales tax errors.
Payment Processing: We may use a third party payment processor to process your payment information, including your payment card data. Be aware that you may be subject to the third party processor’s terms and your information may be subject to their privacy practices.
Returns and Exchanges
If you are not satisfied with any product that you purchased through an eCommerce Site, you may return it or exchange it subject to the following conditions:
- In order to request a return or exchange, you must contact our customer service department by following the instructions on the eCommerce Site. Some eCommerce Sites may also let you request a return or exchange through your Account or through other functionality.
- In your return or exchange request, you must indicate the specific product with which you are not satisfied, and include your order number, name, and contact information, as well as the reason for your return or exchange request and the new product with which you would like to replace the returned product if you are requesting an exchange.
- If we accept your return or exchange request, you must initiate the return of the applicable product within 60 days from the date of original shipment. Products returned after the 60-day return period will receive a shopping credit to your Account on the Site based on the original amount of payment. If you do not have an Account, we may issue you a shopping credit through other means.
- In order to initiate the return of a product, you will need to use a return label that we provide you. Once you repackage the product that you are returning, securely affix the return label to you to your package, and drop off your package at a local post office or courier office, your return or exchange will begin to be processed as soon as we have confirmed receipt of your return. We may not reimburse you for any shipping and handling fees that you incurred in returning any such product.
- Promptly within receipt of a returned product, a credit will be issued back to the original method of payment if you selected a refund, or the new products that you requested will be shipped to you if you requested an exchange.
- Please note that a new product for which you want to exchange the returned product may not be in stock. In such case, you will receive a shopping credit as described above.
- If you are making an exchange, new products that are in stock may not equate to an even exchange and there may be a price difference between the new product and the returned product. Any difference in pricing for an exchange will be placed back on the original method of payment. If we are unable to do so, your exchange may not be completed. We may contact you for new payment information or elect to treat it as a return instead.
Some eCommerce Sites sell products for which we do not allow a return or exchange, but do allow a refund; meaning all or a portion of the purchase price is returned to you without you providing the item back to us. This may be indicated on the applicable eCommerce Site or may be communicated by our customer service. Typically, products eligible for returns or exchanges are not eligible for refunds. We reserve the right to only issue a refund, or require a return or exchange, in our sole discretion regardless of what an eCommerce Site may indicate. Refunds will not be issued for products that have not been purchased directly through the Site.
Timing: For refund eligible products, you have 90 days from the date of shipment to contact us for a full refund of the purchase price (less shipping and handling fees). Following such 90-day period, no product is eligible for a refund. However, even after 90 days, we encourage you to contact us if you are unsatisfied with a product and so our customer service can improve your experience, which may include providing an exception to this refund policy.
Guarantees: Some of our products or brands carry a “guarantee” which may allow for refunds for longer than 90 days. If so guaranteed, all terms of the guarantee apply and such guarantee will be treated as a refund for the purpose of this Agreement.
Conditions: Your refund is subject to the following conditions:
- In order to request a refund you must contact our customer service department by following the instructions on the eCommerce Site. Some eCommerce Sites may also let you request a refund through your Account or through other functionality.
- In your refund request, you must indicate the specific product with which you are not satisfied and include your order number, name, and contact information, as well as the reason for your refund request.
- If we accept your refund request, you will receive a credit to your original form of payment. If we are unable to credit that form of payment, your refund may not be completed. We may contact you for new payment information or provide your refund in another way, such as through your Account.
We process orders daily Monday through Friday from our fulfillment centers. Most orders are shipped the next business day, or in some cases the same business day. You can expect delivery within 3 to 10 business days of your order shipping out. If you choose 2-Day Air service, you can expect your order to arrive in 2 business days from the date of shipment. Please allow 1 business day for order processing. International orders, may take up to 2 to 3 weeks for delivery dependent upon the length of time required for customs processing. Not all Sites allow international orders.
Shipping fees vary by Site and can be found as calculated during the order completion process before checking out.
Unless otherwise indicated, we are only able to ship to one shipping address per order. If you’d like to ship to multiple addresses, please place separate orders for each unique address. Most products may be shipped to a P.O. Box or Military APO/FPO addresses, but some restrictions apply. Please make sure your address is correct. Once in transit, we cannot redirect shipments to a new or different address. If your order is returned for an invalid or incorrect address the order will be refunded less any shipping charges.
ATTENTION INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: Not all Sites allow international orders. All international orders are shipped via USPS Global Mail. There is a flat rate shipping charge depending on the destination country. If your order exceeds $300, we may contact you if additional shipping fees are required. Please note that your order may incur some additional import tariffs and/or customs charges that are controlled by the destination country. These charges are the responsibility of, and must be paid by, the receiver of goods. Free shipping offers and coupons are not applicable to countries outside the U.S.

Certain products on our Sites may be marked as “Safer Choice.” The Environmental Protection Agency’s (“EPA”) Safer Choice recognition does not constitute endorsement by the EPA or Clorox of this product. The Safer Choice label signifies that the formula for this product, as Clorox has represented it to the EPA, contains ingredients with more positive health and environmental characteristics than conventional products. The EPA/Safer Choice relies solely on Clorox’s integrity and good faith, for information on the composition, ingredients, and attributes of its products.
EPA/Safer Choice has not independently identified, i.e., via chemical analysis, the ingredients in the product formula, nor evaluated any of Clorox’s non-ingredient claims. EPA/Safer Choice provides its evaluation only as to the environmental and human health characteristics of the product, based on currently available information and scientific understanding.

Disputes, Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY – IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT OR TO PURSUE CLAIMS IN A CLASS, COLLECTIVE, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY.
ARBITRATION USES A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF A JUDGE OR JURY, ALLOWS FOR MORE LIMITED DISCOVERY THAN IN COURT, AND IS SUBJECT TO VERY LIMITED REVIEW BY COURTS. YOU MAY CHOOSE TO BE REPRESENTED BY A LAWYER IN ARBITRATION OR PROCEED WITHOUT ONE. THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION SHALL SURVIVE TERMINATION OF THIS AGREEMENT.
Initial Dispute Resolution Period: Our customer support department is available at 800-849-7112 to address any concerns you may have regarding the Site or the products or services available on the Site. Most concerns are quickly resolved in this manner to our customers’ satisfaction. In an effort to accelerate resolution and reduce the cost of any Dispute between us, you and we agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute informally for at least sixty (60) days before either party initiates any arbitration or court proceeding (the “Initial Dispute Resolution Period”). That period begins upon receipt of written notice from the party raising the Dispute. If we have a dispute with you, we will send the notice of that Dispute to your billing address and/or email address you have provided to us. If you have a dispute with us, you agree to send us a written notice by certified mail of your claim, addressed to: General Counsel, The Clorox Company, 1221 Broadway, Oakland, CA 94612. A notice of Dispute will not be valid, and will not start the Initial Dispute Resolution Period, and will not allow you or us to later initiate a lawsuit or arbitration, unless it contains all of the information required by this paragraph: (a) description of the nature of the claim or dispute and the underlying facts; (b) date upon which the Dispute arose; (c) the specific relief sought; and (d) name, email address, and physical mailing address of the party seeking relief. The Initial Dispute Resolution Period must include a conference between you and us to attempt to informally resolve any Dispute in good faith. You will personally appear at the conference telephonically or via videoconference; if you are represented by counsel, your counsel may participate in the conference, but you will also participate in the conference. The conference shall be individualized such that a separate conference must be held each time either party initiates a Dispute, even if the same law firm or group of law firms represents multiple users in similar cases, unless all parties agree; multiple individuals initiating a Dispute cannot participate in the same conference unless all parties agree. Compliance with this informal dispute resolution process is mandatory and a condition precedent to initiating an arbitration or litigation. The statute of limitations and any filing fee deadlines shall be tolled while the parties engage in the informal dispute resolution process required by this paragraph. If either party violates this Initial Dispute Resolution Period paragraph, a court of competent jurisdiction has the authority to enjoin the prosecution of the arbitration or court proceeding, and, unless prohibited by law, the arbitration provider shall neither accept nor administer any such arbitration nor assess fees in connection with such arbitration.
Binding Arbitration: If you and we do not reach an agreement to resolve the Dispute following the Initial Dispute Resolution Period (and including the conference of the parties provided in the preceding paragraph), you or we may commence an arbitration proceeding. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the “JAMS Rules”) and in accordance with the Expedited Procedures in those Rules, which are available at www.jamsadr.com, unless it is a Mass Arbitration before NAM, as defined below. If, for any reason, JAMS is unable to provide the arbitration, then except as otherwise stated below, you or we may file a Dispute with any national arbitration company that handles consumer arbitrations following procedures that are substantially similar to the JAMS Expedited Procedures in the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules.
Process: In order to initiate arbitration following the conclusion of the Initial Dispute Resolution Period, a party must provide the other party with a written demand for arbitration and file the demand with the applicable arbitration provider. A party initiating an arbitration against Clorox must send the written demand for arbitration to General Counsel, The Clorox Company, 1221 Broadway, Oakland, CA 94612. By signing the demand for arbitration, the party and its counsel certifies to the best of the party’s and counsel’s knowledge, information, and belief, formed after an inquiry reasonable under the circumstances, that (i) the demand for arbitration is not being presented for any improper purpose, such as to harass, cause unnecessary delay, or needlessly increase the cost of dispute resolution; (ii) the claims and other legal contentions are warranted by existing law or by a nonfrivolous argument for extending, modifying, or reversing existing law or for establishing new law; (iii) the factual contentions have evidentiary support or, if specifically so identified, will likely have evidentiary support after a reasonable opportunity for further investigation or discovery; and (iv) the party has complied with the Initial Dispute Resolution Period, including participation in an in-person conference, as described above. The Arbitrator shall be authorized to afford any relief or impose any sanctions available under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11 or any applicable state law for either party’s violation of this requirement.
Appointment of Arbitrator: Unless all parties to the Arbitration agree, the Arbitrator shall be a lawyer on the JAMS roster admitted to practice for at least 20 years or a retired United States District Court Judge.
Location & Hearing: Arbitration hearings may be conducted by videoconference unless the arbitrator believes an in-person hearing is necessary. In such instances, the location of an arbitration hearing will be decided pursuant to the JAMS Rules.
Arbitrator’s Decision: The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on you and us, and any award of the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator shall determine the scope and enforceability of this arbitration agreement, including whether a Dispute is subject to arbitration. The arbitrator has authority to decide all issues of validity, enforceability or arbitrability. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The parties adopt and agree to implement the JAMS Optional Arbitration Appeal Procedure (as it exists on the effective date of this Agreement) with respect to any final award in an arbitration arising out of or related to this Agreement.
Fees: Your and our right to recover attorneys’ fees, costs and arbitration fees shall be governed by the laws that apply to the parties’ Dispute, as well as any applicable arbitration rules. Either party may make a request that the arbitrator award attorneys’ fees and costs upon showing that the other party has asserted a claim, cross-claim, defense, or procedural tactic that is groundless in fact or law, brought in bad faith, for the purpose of harassment, or is otherwise frivolous, as allowed by applicable law and the JAMS Rules.
Mass Arbitration Before NAM: Notwithstanding the parties’ decision to have arbitrations administered by JAMS (and subject to the exceptions otherwise set forth in the “Exceptions to Binding Arbitration” paragraph), if 25 or more demands for arbitration are filed relating to the same or similar subject matter and sharing common issues of law or fact, and counsel for the parties submitting the demands are the same or coordinated, you and we agree that this will constitute a “Mass Arbitration.” If a Mass Arbitration is commenced, you and we agree that it shall not be governed by JAMS Rules or administered by JAMS. Instead, a Mass Arbitration shall be administered by National Arbitration and Mediation (“NAM”), a nationally recognized arbitration provider, and governed by the NAM Rules in effect when the Mass Arbitration is filed, excluding any rules that permit arbitration on a class-wide basis (the “NAM Rules”), and under the rules set forth in this Agreement. The NAM Rules are available at https://namadr.com/resources/rules-fees-forms/ or by calling 1-800-358-2550. You and we agree that the Mass Arbitration shall be resolved using NAM’s Mass Filing Supplemental Dispute Resolution Rules and Procedures, available at https://www.namadr.com/. Before any Mass Arbitration is filed with NAM, you and we agree to contact NAM jointly to advise that the parties intend to use NAM’s Mass Filing Supplemental Dispute Resolution Rules and Procedures. The individual demands comprising the Mass Arbitration shall be submitted on NAM’s claim form(s) and as directed by NAM. You and we agree that if either party fails or refuses to commence the Mass Arbitration before NAM, you or we may seek an order from NAM compelling compliance and directing administration of the Mass Arbitration before NAM. Pending resolution of any such requests, you and we agree that all arbitrations comprising the Mass Arbitration (and any obligation to pay arbitration fees) shall be stayed. If for any reason the provisions in this Mass Arbitration Before NAM paragraph are found to be unenforceable, or if for any reason NAM declines to administer the Mass Arbitration, then the Disputes comprising the Mass Arbitration shall be administered by AAA consistent with the provisions of the Dispute Resolution Section of this Agreement.
Appointment of Procedural Arbitrator in Mass Arbitration. You and we agree to cooperate in good faith to implement the Mass Arbitration process to minimize the time, filing fees, and costs of the Mass Arbitration. Those steps include, but are not limited to (1) the appointment of a Procedural Arbitrator to efficiently and cost-effectively manage the Mass Arbitration and to rule on proposals by the parties for the efficient and cost-effective management of the Mass Arbitration to the extent the parties cannot agree; and (2) the adoption of an expedited calendar for the arbitration proceedings. If the parties are unable to agree upon a Procedural Arbitrator within fourteen (14) days of delivery of the commencement of the mass arbitration, then NAM will appoint the Procedural Arbitrator in accordance with the NAM Rules.
Exceptions to Binding Arbitration. Notwithstanding the parties’ decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may invoke the following exceptions to arbitration:
- Provisional remedies in aid of arbitration: Either party may seek provisional remedies in aid of arbitration and to enforce the Initial Dispute Resolution Period from a court of appropriate jurisdiction, subject to the forum selection provisions below.
- Intellectual Property and Trade Secret Disputes: Either party may bring an action in state or federal court that only asserts claims for patent infringement or invalidity, copyright infringement, piracy, moral rights violations, trademark infringement, and/or trade secret misappropriation, subject to the forum selection provisions below.
- Small Claims Court. Either party may seek relief in a small claims court for any individual disputes or claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction. If an arbitration is filed, before the arbitrator is formally appointed either party can send written notice to the opposing party and the applicable arbitration provider that it wants the case decided by a small claims court, after which the arbitration provider may close the case, in which instance no filing fees shall be due or payable by either party. Any disagreement about whether a Dispute is subject to small claims court shall be decided by small claims court or a court of competent jurisdiction, not the arbitrator.
Class and Collective Action Waiver. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH PARTY MAY BRING DISPUTES AGAINST THE OTHER PARTY ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A CLASS ACTION OR COLLECTIVE ACTION OR CLASS ARBITRATION.
Governing Law: This Agreement and the rights of the parties hereunder shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, exclusive of conflict or choice of law rules.
Statute of Limitations. To the fullest extent allowed by low, you and we agree that if any Dispute has a statute of limitations in excess of two years, such Dispute must be filed within two years after the Dispute accrued or it will be forever barred.
Forum. To the fullest extent allowed by low, you and we agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of any state or federal court located in Oakland, California, and waive any jurisdictional, venue, or inconvenient forum objections to such courts for any Dispute not subject to binding arbitration.
Severability. If any provision in this Disputes, Arbitration and Class Action Waiver Section of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable, that provision shall be severed with the remainder of this Section of this Agreement remaining in full force and effect. The foregoing shall not apply to the prohibition against class or collective actions as provided for above. This means that if the prohibition against class or collective actions is found to be unenforceable with respect to a particular claim or request for relief and any appeals have been exhausted (or if the decision is otherwise final), then such claim or request for relief shall proceed in a court of competent jurisdiction, but it shall be stayed pending arbitration of all other claims and requests for relief.
Each claim or statement about the effectiveness of our products or comparing the effectiveness of our products is expressly limited to the United States, unless otherwise disclosed. The products referred to on Sites may only be available in the territory to which that Site is directed and may not be available in your country. WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATION THAT THE INFORMATION AND MATERIALS ON ANY SITE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE INFORMATION AND OTHER MATERIALS PROMOTING THE PRODUCTS IDENTIFIED ON THAT SITE, ARE APPROPRIATE OR AVAILABLE FOR USE IN OTHER LOCATIONS OTHER THAN THE LOCATION FOR WHICH THE SITE IS DIRECTED. WE DO NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT A SITE OR REWARDS PROGRAM OR ANY PART THEREOF IS APPROPRIATE OR AVAILABLE FOR USE IN ANY PARTICULAR JURISDICTION OTHER THAN THE UNITED STATES. Those who choose to access a Site or participate in a Rewards Program do so on their own initiative and at their own risk, and are responsible for complying with all local statutes, orders, regulations, rules, and other laws. You are also subject to United States export controls and are responsible for any violations of such controls, including without limitation any United States embargoes or other federal rules and regulations restricting exports.
Despite the above, as a consumer you will benefit from any mandatory provisions of the law of the country in which you are a resident. Nothing in this Agreement affects your rights as a consumer to rely on such mandatory provisions of local law. The local law of your jurisdiction may entitle you to have a dispute relating to this Agreement heard by your local courts. This Agreement does not limit any such rights that you have that apply regardless of the terms and conditions of an agreement that you have entered into. HOWEVER, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, CLOROX DOES NOT CONSENT TO THE JURISDICTION OF ANY COURTS OTHER THAN THOSE REFERENCED IN THIS AGREEMENT AND RESERVES THE RIGHT TO CONTEST THAT IT IS NOT SUBJECT TO THE JURISDICTION OF ANY OTHER COURT. We may limit a Site’s availability, in whole or in part, to any person, geographic area or jurisdiction we choose, at any time and in our sole discretion.
THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS APPLY TO YOU, AND SUPERSEDE CONFLICTING TERMS IN THE AGREEMENT, IF YOU ARE A RESIDENT OF THE NAMED JURISDICTION OR TO THE EXTENT REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW:
Where any Act of Parliament implies any condition or warranty in relation to your use of a Site and that Act prohibits exclusion of that term, then that term is included. To the maximum extent permitted by law, Clorox’s liability for any breach of such a non-excludable term is limited to the supplying of the products or services again.
Dispute Resolution: The arbitration requirements of this Agreement will not apply to you if any such provision is unenforceable under the laws of your Canadian Province of residence.
Cancellation Rights: Residents of certain Provinces may have the right to cancel the provisions of certain purchases as required by local law. We will honor such cancellation rights.
Canadian Copyright Act: We are committed to complying with Canadian copyright and related laws, and we require all users of the Site to comply with these laws. Accordingly, you may not store any material or content on, or disseminate any material or content over, the Site in any manner that constitutes an infringement of third party intellectual property rights, including rights granted by Canadian copyright law. Owners of copyrighted works who believe that their rights under Canadian copyright law have been infringed may take advantage of certain provisions of the Canadian Copyright Act (the “CCA”) to report alleged infringements. It is our policy in accordance with the CCA and other applicable laws to reserve the right to terminate the service provided to any user who is either found to infringe third party copyright or other intellectual property rights, including repeat infringers, or who we believe in our sole discretion is infringing these rights. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable or infringing may send us a notice. Upon our receipt of a proper notice of claimed infringement under the CCA, we will seek to respond expeditiously to remove, or disable access to, the material claimed to be infringing and will follow the procedures specified in the CCA to resolve the claim between the notifying party and the alleged infringer who provided the content in issue. The Company-designated agent (i.e., proper party) to whom you should address such notice is: Tim Humphrey, c/o The Clorox Company, 1221 Broadway 23rd Floor, Oakland CA 94612, (510) 271-7326, email@example.com.
