We reserve all of our rights under the law to insist that any link to the Site be discontinued, and to revoke your right to link to the Site from any other website at any time upon written notice to you.

In order to use certain features and functions of the Site, you may be asked to register and provide certain information about yourself, which you agree to input, update and maintain accurately and completely as long as you are a registered user. Please note that although you can generally pick your own user name, we reserve the right to refuse, in our sole discretion, to grant to you the user name you request. During the registration process, you will create a password. Throughout this Agreement, we sometimes refer to the combination of your user name for the site and its accompanying password as your "ID."
The Site is proprietary to HanesBrands, and HanesBrands either owns or has the right to use all names, logos, brands, trade names, service, and trademarks which appear on the Site, as well as all of the icons, characters, artwork, designs, images, graphics, music, games, text, software, databases, and all copyrightable or otherwise legally protected elements of the Site including, without limitation, the selection, sequence and "look and feel" and arrangement of items ("Content"), and all programming, codes, scripts in any form and format associated with or applicable to the Site ("Code"). For purposes of this Agreement, all Content and Code are included within the meaning of the term "Site," and the Site is protected by copyright, trademark, and other intellectual property laws. We require users to respect all laws and regulations that apply to our Site, just as we respect the rights of others. We will act expeditiously to remove content from the Site that we are notified infringes the copyright of others, and, without limiting our remedies or actions, we have the right to block and disable use of our Site by anyone who repeatedly infringes the rights of others or violates this Agreement. We take protection of our own rights and those of others very seriously, and we employ multiple measures to prevent infringement on our Site and to attempt to promptly end any infringement that comes to our attention.
THIRD-PARTY CONTENT AND WEBSITES
This Site may contain references, URLs, links, interactive functionality, and other material related to or associated with websites, content, information and/or material of third parties that are not affiliated with HanesBrands. Similarly, third-party websites, including Social Media Platforms, may host and display our branded social media fan pages. We are not responsible for, nor do we assume any liability with respect to, the functionality, actions, inactions, privacy settings, privacy policies, terms, or content of any third-party website. Before enabling any sharing functions of the Site to communicate with a third-party website or otherwise visiting any such website, we strongly recommend that you review and understand the terms and conditions, privacy policies, settings, and information-sharing functions and practices of each such third-party website. The links and interactive functions for third-party websites included on the Site do not constitute an endorsement by HanesBrands of such third-party websites. Other sites may link to the Site with or without our authorization, and we may block any links to or from the Site. YOUR USE OF THIRD-PARTY WEBSITES AND RESOURCES IS AT YOUR OWN RISK.
Pricing, Availability, and Ordering. Prices on the Site are in U.S. dollars, for U.S. purchasers only. You acknowledge and agree there may be unintentional inaccuracies, omissions or errors regarding price, offers, descriptions, promotions, availability, or other matters, and, except as provided by law, we will not be held liable for these, but we will promptly correct them when brought to our attention. Goods may be out-of-stock or discontinued and prices are subject to change, and we may reserve the right to limit the quantity of items purchased, to change and update information, as well as simply to cancel orders you may have submitted (even if you received an automated confirmation), if information on the Site is found to be inaccurate. We also reserve the right to cancel orders you may have submitted for any reason at our sole discretion. We do not claim that the information in the Site is appropriate to your jurisdiction or that the products described in our Site will be available for purchase in all jurisdictions. Product information is for informational purposes only, and although we make every effort to display products (including their colors) as accurately as possible, sometimes your device and its software can affect how products are displayed when you use the Site. Consequently, we cannot guarantee you will accurately be able to see the actual colors and specific features in every case. All ordering information, including financial information, provided must be truthful and accurate. We reserve the right to terminate an order if ordering information is inaccurate.
Shipping. Currently, we cannot ship to addresses outside the U.S. possessions and territories and APO and FPO (Air/Army Post Office or Fleet Post Office) boxes, and purchases are subject to applicable taxes to be paid by the purchaser, and prices do not include shipping and handling. Title (i.e., ownership) and risk of loss for all goods ordered pass to you when we deliver the goods to the carrier for shipment.
SUBMISSION OF IDEAS
Don’t send us any of your original ideas (each, an "Idea"). If you do, you are agreeing that your submission is entirely voluntary, non-confidential, gratuitous, and non-committal. We have no obligation to treat any Idea as confidential or proprietary, pay compensation for any Idea, or to respond to any Idea, and we have the right to use or disregard, in whole or in part, any Ideas. We will not be liable for the use of any Ideas nor will we incur or accept any liability, even if we adopt, use or implement anything that is similar or even identical to any Idea you submit. If you submit an Idea to us, we will have the right to use, exploit and do with the Idea as we determine, without notice or compensation, as if the Idea was original and proprietary to us.
Portions of the Site may provide you with the opportunity to submit, post, display, transmit, exchange or otherwise make available (to "post") information, content, opinions, testimonials, questions, electronic cards, send-a-friend emails, comments, messages, graphics, photographs, caricatures, likenesses, animation, spoken statements, music, audio, video, voice reproductions, computer graphics, visual effects, or any other material (collectively, "User Content"). By posting User Content to the Site, you grant us an irrevocable, non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, unconditional, unrestricted, perpetual, and fully sublicensable right and license to use such User Content, in any form or format, through any transmission mechanism(s), in whole or in part, in or on any and all media, whether now known or hereafter invented, discovered or devised, alone or together or in combination with other things.
Please be careful what you decide to post, and do not post anything you do not want to become public, because you have no expectation of or right to privacy with regard to any User Content.
You represent and warrant that any User Content that you post to the Site: (i) is accurate; (ii) is original to you or you have obtained all required rights, licenses and releases required to comply with the terms of this Agreement, including, without limitation, the rights granted to us; (iii) does not and will not, violate this Agreement or infringe upon, misappropriate or violate the rights of any other party or any law or regulation; (iv) is not harassing, obscene, libelous, tortious or otherwise unlawful, nor is it intended to injure, defame or cause damage or hurt of any kind to any other party; and (v) may be used by us as permitted in this Agreement, without notice, royalty or any other payment, liability or obligation of any kind whatsoever.
User Content is the sole responsibility of the person posting it to the Site. You will be responsible for User Content posted under your ID, even if it was not posted by you or with your permission. User Content does not reflect the views of HanesBrands, but we do reserve the right (although we have no obligation) to monitor, edit, or screen User Content. We also reserve the right to delete, re-format, and/or change your User Content in any manner that we may determine (although you will not be responsible for any such changes made). Without limiting our remedies or rights of action in any manner, if we determine you have breached or may breach this Agreement, we may, without notice, at any time and from time to time: (i) refuse to allow you to post; (ii) remove and delete User Content; (iii) revoke your right to use the Site; and/or (iv) use any technological, legal, operational or other means available to us to enforce the provisions of this Agreement. Our Site has a limited and finite capacity, and we also may limit use for operational and other reasons. As a result, some User Content may not ultimately be posted to the Site, and we have no obligation to you and assume no responsibility for User Content.

CAUTIONARY STATEMENTS CONCERNING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
The materials we have filed or will file with the Securities and Exchange Commission, or the "SEC," contain, or will contain, certain forward-looking statements regarding business strategies, market potential, future financial performance and other matters. Forward-looking statements include all statements that do not relate solely to historical or current facts, and can generally be identified by the use of words such as "may," "believe," "will," "expect," "project," "estimate," "intend," "anticipate," "plan," "continue" or similar expressions. Forward-looking statements inherently involve many risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected in these statements. Where, in any forward-looking statement, we express an expectation or belief as to future results or events, such expectation or belief is based on the current plans and expectations of our management and expressed in good faith and believed to have a reasonable basis, but there can be no assurance that the expectation or belief will result or be achieved or accomplished. The following include some but not all of the factors that could cause actual results or events to differ materially from those anticipated:
•our ability to migrate our production and manufacturing operations to lower-cost centers around the world; •the highly competitive and evolving nature of the industry in which we compete; •our ability to effectively manage our inventory and reduce inventory reserves; •any failure by us to successfully streamline our operations; •retailer consolidation and other changes in the apparel essentials industry; •our ability to keep pace with changing consumer preferences in intimate apparel; •any loss of or reduction in sales to any of our top customers; •financial difficulties experienced by any of our top customers; •risks associated with our foreign operations or foreign supply sources, such as disruption of markets, changes in import and export laws, currency restrictions and currency exchange rate fluctuations; •the impact of economic and business conditions and industry trends in the countries in which we operate on our supply chain; •any failure by us to protect against dramatic changes in the volatile market price of cotton, the primary material used in the manufacture of our products; •costs and adverse publicity arising from violations of labor and environmental laws by us or any of our third-party manufacturers; •our ability to attract and retain key personnel; •our substantial debt and debt service requirements which restrict our operating and financial flexibility, and impose significant interest and financing costs; •rapid technological changes; •future financial performance, including availability, terms and deployment of capital; and
The foregoing factors and others are described in greater length in our materials filed with the SEC. These forward-looking statements and such risks, uncertainties and other factors speak only as of the date they are made. We expressly disclaim any obligation or undertaking to disseminate any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statement contained in any materials we have filed or will file with the SEC, to reflect any change in our expectations with regard thereto or any other change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based other than required by law.
