Disclaimer of Warranties
COMPANY DOES NOT WARRANT THAT ACCESS TO OR USE OF THE SITE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE OR THAT DEFECTS IN THE SITE WILL BE CORRECTED. THE SITE IS PROVIDED “AS IS,” WITH ALL FAULTS, WITH NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, QUALITY OF INFORMATION, QUIET ENJOYMENT, AND TITLE/NON-INFRINGEMENT.

COMPANY IS NOT RESPONSIBLE NOR LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE, OR OTHER DAMAGES WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THOSE RESULTING FROM LOST PROFITS, LOST DATA, OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION) ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THE SITE, SITE-RELATED SERVICES, CONTENT OR INFORMATION CONTAINED WITHIN THE SITE (INCLUDING USER GENERATED CONTENT), AND/OR ANY LINKED WEBSITE, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY AND WHETHER OR NOT ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. YOUR SOLE REMEDY FOR DISSATISFACTION WITH THE SITE, SITE-RELATED SERVICES, AND/OR LINKED WEBSITES IS TO STOP USING THE SITE AND/OR THOSE SERVICES. TO THE EXTENT ANY ASPECTS OF THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY ARE NOT ENFORCEABLE, THE MAXIMUM AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF COMPANY TO YOU WITH RESPECT TO YOUR USE OF THE SITE IS $100 (ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS).
Dispute Resolution; Arbitration Agreement
These Terms of Service provide that all disputes between you and Company that in any way relate to these Terms of Service or your use of the Site will be resolved by BINDING ARBITRATION. ACCORDINGLY, YOU AGREE TO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT (INCLUDING IN A CLASS ACTION PROCEEDING) to assert or defend your rights under these Terms of Service (except for matters that may be taken to small claims court). Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR and NOT a judge or jury and your claims cannot be brought as a class action.
We will try to work in good faith to resolve any issue you have with Site, including products ordered or purchased through the Site, if you bring that issue to the attention of our customer service department. However, we realize that there may be rare cases where we may not be able to resolve an issue to a customer’s satisfaction.
You and Company agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating in any way to these Terms of Service or your use of the Site, including products ordered or purchased through the Site, shall be determined by binding arbitration instead of in courts of general jurisdiction. Arbitration is more informal than bringing a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitration allows for more limited discovery than in court, however, we agree to cooperate with each other to agree to reasonable discovery in light of the issues involved and amount of the claim. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award, but in so doing, the arbitrator shall apply substantive law regarding damages as if the matter had been brought in court, including without limitation, the law on punitive damages as applied by the United States Supreme Court. You agree that, by agreeing to these Terms of Service, the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and Company are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms of Service and any other contractual relationship between you and Company.
YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Company agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim.
If this agreement to arbitrate provision is found to be unenforceable, then (a) the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, but the remaining provisions of these Terms of Service shall remain in full force and effect; and (b) exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any claims will be in state or federal courts.
Investigations; Cooperation with Law Enforcement; Termination; Survival
You agree that Company shall, as permitted by applicable law, have the right, without limitation and without any obligation, to: (i) investigate any suspected breaches of its Site security or its information technology or other systems or networks, (ii) investigate any suspected breaches of these Terms of Service or any potential harm to our users or third parties, (iii) use any information obtained by Company in connection with reviewing law enforcement databases or complying with applicable laws and use and/or disclose any information obtained by Company to comply with law enforcement requests or legal requirements, (iv) involve and cooperate with law enforcement authorities in connection with any of the foregoing matters, (v) prosecute violators of these Terms of Service, and (vi) discontinue the Site, in whole or in part, or suspend or terminate your access to it, in whole or in part, including any user accounts or registrations, at any time, without notice, for any reason and without any obligation to you or any third party. Any suspension or termination will not affect your obligations to Company under these Terms of Service. Upon suspension or termination of your access to the Site, or upon notice from Company, all rights granted to you under these Terms of Service will cease immediately, and you agree that you will immediately discontinue use of the Site. The provisions of these Terms of Service, which by their nature should survive your suspension or termination will survive, including the rights and licenses you grant to Company in these Terms of Service, as well as the indemnities, releases, disclaimers, and limitations on liability and the provisions regarding jurisdiction, choice of law, no class action, jury waiver, and mandatory arbitration.
Company may assign its rights and obligations under these Terms of Service, in whole or in part, to any party at any time without any notice. These Terms of Service may not be assigned by you, and you may not delegate your duties under them, without the prior written consent of an officer of Company.
Company controls and operates the Site from its U.S.-based offices in the U.S.A. If you use the Site from other locations, you are doing so on your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws regarding your online conduct and acceptable content, if and to the extent local laws apply. The Site may describe products and services that are available only in the U.S.A. (or only parts of it) and are not available worldwide. You agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to these Terms of Service or to any sale of goods carried out as a result of your use of the Site.
Company reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate your access to all or part of the Site, with or without cause, and with or without notice. In the event that any of the Terms of Service are held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, such provisions shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that these Terms of Service shall otherwise remain in full force and effect. These Terms of Service constitute the entire agreement between Company and you pertaining to the subject matter hereof. In its sole discretion, Company may from time-to-time revise these Terms of Service by updating this posting. You should, therefore, periodically visit this page to review the current Terms of Service, so you are aware of any such revisions to which you are bound. Your continued use of the Site after revisions to these Terms of Service shall constitute your agreement to the revised Terms of Service. Certain provisions of these Terms of Service may be superseded by expressly designated legal notices or terms located on particular pages within the Site.
If any provision of these Terms of Service is for any reason deemed invalid, unlawful, void, or unenforceable by a court or arbitrator of competent jurisdiction, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms of Service and the invalidity of the provision will not affect the validity or enforceability of the remainder of these Terms of Service (which will remain in full force and effect). To the extent not prohibited by applicable law, you agree to waive, and you hereby waive, any applicable statutory and common law that may permit a contract to be construed against its drafter. Wherever the word “including” is used in these Terms of Service, the word will be deemed to mean “including, without limitation.” The summaries of provisions and section headings are provided for convenience only and shall not limit the full Terms of Service.

The shipping cost to send to international countries is a minimum of $38.00, depending on the amount purchased. If your order requires more shipping boxes, an additional fee will be applied and a consultation with an international customer service representative will be required.
