1. Starlight Offerings Available on the Starlight Hub
Starlight delivers happiness to seriously ill children by making Starlight Deliveries and Starlight Programs (together, “Starlight Offerings”) available to you through the Starlight Hub, so that you, in turn, can deliver happiness to the seriously ill children you serve by making Starlight Offerings available to them.
Starlight Deliveries. Through your Hub User Account, you may order games, toys, books, DVDs and more from Starlight. You may also download themed activity toolkits, such as coloring sheets, and other digital resources for immediate use. We refer to these items and downloads as “Starlight Deliveries.” They have been donated or made available to us through the generosity of our sponsors, and subject to availability, we are pleased to donate them or, as applicable, make them available to you free of charge.
Starlight Programs. Through your Hub User Account, you may also generate requests (each, a “Wish List”) for products custom-designed or created by or for Starlight and identified as such on the Starlight Hub (“Starlight Programs”), such as our Virtual Reality kits, children’s hospital wear, and gaming stations. Starlight Programs have been developed and/or created in collaboration with our donors and partners. Our goal is to have sufficient funding to deliver most Starlight Programs to you free of charge. However, if we cannot do so, we will give you the option on the Starlight Hub to purchase the Starlight Program on your Wish List.
The Starlight Hub also provides access to support and resource materials, your account information, feedback opportunities, order tracking, and other services, all as set forth on the Starlight Hub.
Fulfillment of all orders are handled by third-party service providers, who are solely and fully responsible for warehousing, packaging, shipment, delivery and other fulﬁllment activities in connection with Starlight Offerings. Title and risk of loss to a Starlight Offering pass to you at the time the Starlight Offering is delivered to a designated shipping carrier at Starlight’s fulfillment facility. More Information about our shipping terms can be found on our Shipping Terms & FAQ page: https://www.starlight.org/starlight-hub-shipping-terms/ (the “Shipping Terms”).

Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages or damages arising from gross negligence or intentional misconduct, so such limitation or exclusion above may not apply to you.
13. General Provisions
g. Starlight shall not be responsible for failures to fulﬁll any obligations due to causes beyond its control.
k. WITH RESPECT TO ALL PERSONS AND ENTITIES, ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
