Status expires after that period. In order to maintain fragrance lover status, a member must accrue 1,000 points each subsequent calendar year. All other members will be placed in fragrance fan status by default. There is no action to maintain fragrance fan status. Status levels and break points between status levels are subject to change at any time.

The Yankee Candle Company may also terminate a User's participation in The Yankee Candle Company rewards program if it determines, in its sole discretion, that the User is in breach of any terms of these Official Rules.

MALFUNCTIONS AND MISCONDUCT:
The Yankee Candle Company reserves the right at its sole discretion to cancel, terminate, or suspend the rewards program without obligation or prior notice if the rewards program is not capable of running as planned for any reason, including but not limited to: (a) computer, programming, system errors; (b) infection by computer virus, bugs, tampering, unauthorized intervention, fraud, technical failure or other causes which corrupt or affect the administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper conduct of rewards program; or (c) earthquake, flood, fire, storm or other natural disaster, act of God, labor controversy or threat thereof, civil disturbance or commotion, disruption of the public markets, war or armed conflict (regardless of whether officially declared).
DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND ARBITRATION AGREEMENT:
Mindful of the high cost of legal disputes, not only in dollars but also in time and energy, both the User and The Yankee Candle Company agree to the following dispute resolution procedure: In the event of any controversy, claim, action or dispute arising out of or related to any transaction conducted in connection with the rewards program, or the breach, enforcement, interpretation, or validity of these Official Rules or any part of it ("Dispute"), the party asserting the Dispute shall first try in good faith to settle such Dispute by providing written notice to the other party (by first class or registered mail) describing the facts and circumstances (including any relevant documentation) of the Dispute and allowing the receiving party thirty (30) days in which to respond to or settle the Dispute. Notice shall be sent
to The Yankee Candle Company at:
Newell Brands Inc.
6655 Peachtree Dunwoody Rd., NE
Atlanta, GA 30328
Attn: General Counsel; or
to the User at: your last-used billing address or the billing and/or shipping address in your online profile.
Both the User and The Yankee Candle Company agree that this dispute resolution procedure is a condition precedent which must be satisfied prior to initiating any arbitration or filing any claim against the other party.
To the extent you cannot resolve any Dispute through the informal dispute resolution procedure described above, a Dispute shall be resolved through binding individual arbitration. The User agrees to give up his/her right to go to court to assert or defend your rights under this Agreement and with respect to any Dispute. The User and The Yankee Candle Company expressly delegate to the arbitrator the authority to determine the arbitrability of any Dispute, including the scope, applicability, validity, and enforceability of this arbitration provision.
Then User may begin an arbitration proceeding by sending a letter requesting arbitration to the The Yankee Candle Company: Newell Brands Inc., 6655 Peachtree Dunwoody Rd., NE, Atlanta, GA 30328, attn: General Counsel. The User agrees that the arbitration shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) pursuant to its Consumer Arbitration Rules (“AAA Rules”), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. The AAA Rules are available on the AAA’s website www.adr.org, or by calling the AAA at (800) 778-7879. In the event the AAA is unavailable or unwilling to hear the Dispute, the parties shall agree to another arbitration provider. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s applicable rules. The Yankee Candle Company will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000. The Yankee Candle Company waives its right to seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration. The User may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.
In lieu of arbitration, either the User or The Yankee Candle Company may bring any individual claim in small claims court consistent with the jurisdictional and dollar limits that may apply, as long as it is brought and maintained as an individual claim.
Waiver of Right to Bring Class Actions and Representative Claims:
All arbitrations shall proceed on an individual basis. The arbitrator is empowered to resolve the Dispute with the same remedies available in court, however, any relief must be individualized to you and shall not affect any other customer. The User and The Yankee Candle Company agree that each may bring claims against the other in arbitration only in their respective individual capacities and in so doing the User and The Yankee Candle Company hereby waive the right to a trial by jury, to assert or participate in a class action lawsuit or class action arbitration (either as a named-plaintiff or class member), and to assert or participate in any joint or consolidated lawsuit or joint or consolidated arbitration of any kind. If a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this paragraph’s limitations as to a particular cause of action, then that cause of action (and only that cause of action) must remain in court and be severed from any arbitration.
This Arbitration Agreement shall be governed by, and interpreted, construed, and enforced in accordance with, the Federal Arbitration Act. The terms of the Arbitration Agreement provisions shall survive after this Agreement terminates or the User’s use of the rewards program ends. Except as set forth above, if any portion of this Arbitration Agreement is deemed invalid or unenforceable, it will not invalidate the remaining portions of the Arbitration Agreement.
