14. Dispute Resolution. Please read the following arbitration agreement in this Section (“Arbitration Agreement”) carefully.  It requires you to arbitrate disputes with Cyclopure and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.

14.1. Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. You agree that any dispute or claim relating in any way to your access or use of the Website, to any products sold or distributed through the Website, or to any aspect of your relationship with Cyclopure, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that (1) you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify, so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis; and (2) you or Cyclopure may seek equitable relief in court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents).  This Arbitration Agreement shall apply, without limitation, to all claims that arose or were asserted before the Effective Date of this Agreement or any prior version of this Agreement.  

14.2. Arbitration Rules and Forum.  The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.  To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to Cyclopure, Inc.,  171 Saxony Road, Suite 208, Encinitas, CA 92024, Attention: Ruth Stoffel.  The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS, an established alternative dispute resolution provider.   Disputes involving claims and counterclaims under $250,000, not inclusive of attorneys’ fees and interest, shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and procedures available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/; all other claims shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration/. JAMS’s rules are also available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling JAMS at 800-352-5267.  If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum.  If the arbitrator finds that you cannot afford to pay JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees and cannot obtain a waiver from JAMS, Company will pay them for you.    Likewise, Cyclopure will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous.

You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the country where you live or at another mutually agreed location. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

14.3. Authority of Arbitrator.  The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable.  The arbitration will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Cyclopure. The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitral forum’s rules, and the Agreement (including the Arbitration Agreement). The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded.  The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have.  The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us. 

14.4. Waiver of Jury Trial.  YOU AND CYCLOPURE HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY.  You and Cyclopure are instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in Section 14.1 above.  An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow this Agreement as a court would.   However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.  

14.5. Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions.  ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS, ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. In the event that this subparagraph is deemed invalid or unenforceable neither you nor we are entitled to arbitration and instead claims and disputes shall be resolved in a court as set forth in Section 14.6.

You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to the following address: Cyclopure, Inc., 171 Saxony Road, Suite 208, Encinitas, CA 92024, Attn: Ruth Stoffel, within 30 days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement.  Your notice must include your name and address, your Cyclopure username (if any), the email address you used to set up your Cyclopure account (if you have one), and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of this Agreement will continue to apply to you.  Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have, or may enter in the future, with us.

14.7. Severability. If any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.

Quality Assurances & Quality Control

At Cyclopure, our mission is to develop novel adsorbents to help purify drinking water for the benefit of your health, your finances and the environment. We are collaborating with municipal and industrial partners in the water treatment market to make our solutions available to you. As we work through details of form factor and engineering design with our partners, we realized that we could provide an early service with our adsorbents in the form of a home water test kit.

Because of the super short contact time required for our adsorbent to remove contaminants, we were able to develop an affordable and easy to use home test kit for consumers to use to test for PFAS contamination of their tap water. The kit uses our DEXSORB+ adsorbent in an extraction disc to capture any PFAS contaminants that are present in your water sample. Our test method is by “passive sampling.” In this process, you will receive a small collection cup (250ml in size) into which you will pour tap water that will drain through the extraction disc. The flow through takes less than 20 minutes. 

Once the pass through is complete, you will return the EMPTY collection cup back to us using the same shipping box, postage pre-paid. This is a first in home water test kit. All other kits on the market involve the collection and return of water samples back to a commercial laboratory for testing.

Back at the lab, adsorbed PFAS are then removed from the disk and quantified using isotope dilution LC-MS/MS using a Thermo Scientific Q-Exactive. Following analysis, we will publish your detection results for the 16 PFAS on our information dashboard and notify you by email. It will look something as shown in Fig. 1.

The result is the first sub-$100 home test kit to test for PFAS contamination. This gives you an affordable tool to screen your household water.

We designed our PFAS Water Test Kits with convenience, affordability and accuracy in mind. Using the rapid removal of PFAS properties of our DEXSORB+ adsorbent, we are able to provide a water test procedure that does not require the collection and return of actual water samples. Plus, we do all of PFAS measuring in our lab. This has allowed us to streamline all aspects of the water test experience and share that value with you.

Our intent is to bring high-quality, lab standard water analysis affordable and available to households. Consistency, reliability and accuracy is our highest priority in making this service available. We’ve validated our method for 16 perfluorinated compounds using the precision, accuracy, and minimum reporting level verifications described in EPA Method 537 down to 5 ppt. We have benchmarked results with EPA 537 tests, and undertake semiannual proficiency testing offered by Phenova to confirm ongoing quality standards.

Our instruments are maintained at the highest level of performance. We maintain separate sets of columns for use in test kit measurements only. All materials and chemicals used are tested to ensure acceptable PFAS removal performance and freedom from PFAS contamination prior to shipping and prior to use in the laboratory.

However, PFAS contamination can occur during use by touching the inside of the cup or where the water flows out, or if the cup is disassembled.  Please don’t do any of those things.

We’ve conducted internal studies to demonstrate that our kit performs well for all drinking water whether it be hard, soft, or from a well.

We’ve verified the performance and stability of our test kit after exposure to the extreme temperature conditions that could occur during transport in both winter and in summer (-4 degrees F to 140 degrees F).

If you have questions about our test method or your results, please contact us wtksupport@Cyclopure.com; we’d be happy to discuss. Our service is for informational purposes only. It is not meant to be a commentary on the quality of your water or a recommendation of further action. The EPA, Center for Disease Control and your State Environmental Agency have compiled and made available detailed information about the risks and health hazards associated with PFAS chemicals.
