INCI Name Application System – Terms of Service
PCPC INCI Name Application System – Terms of Service
Last Updated: January 28, 2021
Please take a few minutes to review these Terms of Service (the “Terms”) carefully. These Terms are a legally binding contract between you and your representatives, affiliates, officers, directors, employees, contractors, and agents (“you,” “your,” or “user”) and the Personal Care Products Council, and its subsidiaries, representatives, affiliates, officers and directors (collectively, “PCPC,” “the Council,” “we,” “us” or “our”) governing your use of the INCI Name Application System available through https://inci.personalcarecouncil.org/inci-app/ and any services related to the INCI Name Application System now and in the future (collectively, the “INCI Application”).
By accessing or using PCPC’s INCI Application, you expressly acknowledge that you understand and have the right, authority, and capacity to accept to be bound by these Terms just as if you signed a formal legal contract. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS, YOU MAY NOT USE OR ACCESS THE INCI APPLICATION.
PLEASE REVIEW SECTIONS 13 AND 14 CAREFULLY, AS THEY LIMIT PCPC’S LIABILITY TO YOU AND GOVERN DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND PCPC THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION. By using or accessing INCI Application, you expressly acknowledge that you have read and understand these Terms and have taken the time to consider the conditions and consequences of this decision.
1. INCI Application Website
INCI names (“International Nomenclature Cosmetic Ingredient”) are systematic names internationally recognized to identify cosmetic and personal care product ingredients. They are developed by the International Nomenclature Committee (“INC”) and published by the Council in the International Cosmetic Ingredient Dictionary and Handbook, available electronically as wINCI.
The designation of an INCI name for a cosmetic ingredient is an essential part of ingredient identification; however, just because an ingredient has an INCI name does not mean that the ingredient has been approved for cosmetics. The assignment of an INCI name to an ingredient also does not imply that the ingredient is safe, or that its use in a cosmetic product complies with the laws and regulations of the United States or other global regions.
Specifically, companies can apply for an ingredient name assignment through the INCI Application which is reviewed by the Council and INC. PCPC makes no representations or warranties about getting your INCI name assignment approved through the INCI Application or about your interactions and dealings with the Council or INC.
2. Changes to INCI Application and the Terms
The Council’s INCI Application may change and evolve based on the needs of its users and others. PCPC has the right to change INCI Application or any part thereof at any time. If you do not wish to use the changed INCI Application, you may terminate your use of the website. Any of the material on the INCI Application may be out of date at any given time and PCPC is under no obligation to update such material. However, we reserve the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, any part of INCI Application, with or without notice to you. You agree that PCPC shall not be liable to you or any third party for any modification, suspension, or discontinuance of the INCI Application. We also reserve the right to terminate your access to INCI Application for any reason, and to take any other actions that we, in our sole discretion, believe to be in the interest of INCI Application, PCPC, and our website users as a whole.
We also reserve the right to revise and update these Terms at any time in our sole discretion without prior notice to any users. All changes are effective immediately, but will not apply retroactively, when we post them on INCI Application. Therefore, your use of or participation in INCI Application means you agree to be bound by those revisions to the Terms, so we encourage you to periodically review these Terms. If you do not accept and agree to any revised part of these Terms, you may reject the Terms by immediately discontinuing use of INCI Application. In the event you reject the Terms and continue to access or use INCI Application, such continued access or use is unauthorized by PCPC.
4. Eligibility (Age, etc.)

Further, INCI Application may only be used by those who have the right and authority to enter into and accept these Terms on behalf of the business entity and are fully able and competent to satisfy these Terms’ conditions and obligations. INCI Application is not available to any other users who had its User Profile (discussed below under Section 5) temporarily or permanently deactivated.

If PCPC learns that we have collected or received personal information from a child under 13 without verified parental consent, we will delete that information in accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will take reasonable steps to ensure that such information is deleted from our records.
5. User Profile
In order to use INCI Application, you will need to create an account that includes a User ID and a User Profile (collectively, the “User Profile”). When creating your User Profile, you must provide true, accurate, current and complete information as prompted by our registration forms, and to maintain and promptly update the information you provide. It is your obligation to maintain and control passwords to your User Profile. Each user may only create one User Profile. You may update your User Profile at any time, including linking applications, through links provided on the INCI Application website. In addition to any other rights or remedies the Council may have, we expressly reserve the right to immediately deactivate your User Profile if created using a false identity or information or using another User Profile without permission or deactivate any additional or duplicate User Profiles. We may also terminate your User Profile at any time if you breach these terms or otherwise at our sole discretion.
You are also solely responsible for all use, whether or not authorized, of the website under your User Profile and the acts and omissions of anyone that has access to such User Profile including without limitation any parent entities, subsidiaries, representatives, affiliates, officers, directors, employees, affiliates, contractors, successors, representatives, and agents (collectively, the “Account Operators”). If applicable, Account Operators may access and participate in INCI Application pursuant to these Terms. A user and its Account Operators shall be jointly and severally responsible for the acts and omissions of Account Operators in connection with their use of the INCI Application, including, but not limited to, breach of these Terms. Any claim from an Account Operators’ use of INCI Application pursuant to these Terms may only be brought against PCPC by the user on that Account Operator’s behalf. Additionally, PCPC may bring claims for violation of these Terms by Account Operators against such user, it’s Account Operator, or both, at PCPC’s sole discretion.
Upon termination of your User Profile or canceling your access to INCI Application, you agree that PCPC may take any measures we deem necessary to prevent you from accessing the website. You agree that after canceling your access to INCI Application, PCPC is not obliged to retain any personal or business information that we collected.

Knowing the material risks and appreciating, knowing, and reasonably anticipating that other injuries or damage to person or property are a possibility, you and Your Representatives hereby forever expressly assume all of the described risks of injury, all other possible risk of injury or damage to person or property.

You expressly understand and agree that this Release and Waiver is intended to be as broad and inclusive as permitted by law. In the event that any portion of this limited liability provision of the Terms is found invalid, this provision shall be revised to the extent necessary to be in compliance with applicable law. Recourse against PCPC shall under no circumstances include consequential, special or indirect damages.
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR PERSONAL INJURY, OR OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THIS LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. In no event shall our total liability to you for all damages (regardless of whether the claim for such damages is based in contract, tort, strict liability, or otherwise) exceed one thousand dollars ($1000). The foregoing limitations will apply even if the above stated remedy fails of its essential purpose.
You voluntarily and irrevocably agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless, at your expense, PCPC from any and all liability present, past and in the future, losses, claims, demands, actions or rights of action, costs or expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorney fees and costs), or damages related to, arising out of, or incidental to INCI Application or these Terms, any incident occurring when accessing or participating in INCI Application, any act or omission of PCPC related to INCI Application, these Terms, or any of your acts, errors, omissions, or default related to the INCI Application or the Terms, including but not limited property repair, property damages or losses, or any other damages in respect of death, injury to person or property, or any other loss or damage to any member, employee, or contractor of PCPC. You acknowledge and agree that PCPC shall not be responsible for damages, direct or consequential, resulting from any injury, annoyance or disturbance under INCI Application or these Terms.
(A) Governing Law and Jurisdiction
By accessing or participating in INCI Application, you agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the District of Columbia, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and PCPC.
Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of INCI Application will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. The AAA Rules are available at https://adr.org/consumer or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) and AAA Rules shall preempt all country, state, and local laws to the fullest extent permitted by law. If the FAA and AAA Rules are found to not apply to any issue that arises under these Terms or the enforcement thereof, then that issue shall be resolved under the laws of the District of Columbia.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages) and must follow the provisions of these Terms as a court would. The prevailing party in arbitration will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must provide PCPC with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration – Consumer Arbitration Rules available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879). Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules.
If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration you waive any right to a jury trial.
PCPC is based in the District of Columbia, so any legal action against PCPC related to INCI Application must be filed and take place in a location in Virginia closest to PCPC, LLC’s principal office, including all actions and proceedings under the AAA Rules.
(D) Limitation on Time to Initiate a Dispute
Any cause of action or claim you may have arising out of or relating to these Terms or INCI Application must be commenced within one (1) year after the cause of action accrued, otherwise, such cause of action or claim is permanently barred.
15. Third party beneficiaries
INCI Application users are each a third-party beneficiary of these Terms, and that upon acceptance of these Terms, each user (respectively) will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce these Terms as the third-party beneficiary hereof, including without limitation the liability waivers under Section 12 and the dispute process under Section 13.
16. Antitrust Statement
PCPC conducts itself and the INCI Application in such a way as to avoid any potential for antitrust exposure. If you wish to access or participate in INCI Application, you are required to comply with all applicable antitrust laws as well as with PCPC’s Antitrust Policy. This means that the responsibility is on you, and not PCPC, to take or refrain from certain actions with competitors who may also access or participate in INCI Application. You are required to terminate any discussion, seek legal counsel’s advice, or, if necessary, terminate any exchange resulting from INCI Application if the discussion might be construed to raise antitrust risks.
