Although Company attempts to ensure the integrity and accuracy of the Platform, it makes no representations, warranties, or guarantees whatsoever as to the correctness or accuracy of the Platform and Content thereon. It is possible that the Platform could include typographical errors, inaccuracies, or other errors and that unauthorized additions, deletions, and alterations could be made to the Platform by third parties. In the event that an inaccuracy arises, please inform Company so that it can be corrected. Company reserves the right to unilaterally correct any inaccuracies on the Platform without notice. Information contained on the Platform may be changed or updated without notice. Additionally, Company will have no responsibility or liability for information or Content posted to the Platform from any non-Company affiliated third party.
All information regarding pricing, Products and services is subject to change. Company reserves the right to make adjustments to pricing and Products at any time, without notice, and for no reason or any reason, including, but not limited to, changing market conditions, discontinuation, unavailability, manufacturer price changes, and errors in advertisements. Company may, from time to time and in its sole discretion, issue surcharges on new orders in order to mitigate and/or recover increased operating costs arising from or related to (a) foreign currency exchange variation; (b) increased cost of third-party content, labor, and materials; (c) impact of duties, tariffs, and other government actions; (d) increases in freight, labor, material or component costs; and (e) increased costs due to inflation.
All prices listed in Company’s publications are intended as a source of general information only and not as an offer to sell, and all prices contained therein are subject to confirmation by Company. Any additional charges for services requested by Customer, including but not limited to inside delivery, special routing, residential delivery, or pre-delivery notification, must be paid by Customer.
Prices listed do not include shipping charges, handling fees, taxes and/or duties, or special crating requirements for export shipment, for which Customer shall be responsible. If Customer claims exemption from taxes or duties, Customer is responsible for providing Company with the necessary documentation at the time of purchase; if Customer does not provide such documentation, taxes will be added to Customer’s order or separately invoiced to Customer. Customer shall pay for the Products in full, without any set-off, counterclaim, recoupment, or other similar rights Customer may have against Company. If Customer is required under law to withhold or deduct any amount from the payment due to Company, Customer shall increase the sum it pays to Company by the amount necessary for Company to receive an amount equal to the sum it would have received if no withholdings or deductions had been made. All prices and amounts payable under this Agreement are in U.S. Dollars.
In the event a Product or service is listed at an incorrect price due to typographical error or error in pricing information received from our suppliers, we have the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for Products or services listed at the incorrect price. We have the right to refuse or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit or debit card charged. If your credit or debit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is canceled, we shall promptly issue a credit to your credit or debit card account in the amount of the incorrect price.
All refunds and returns are subject to the Company’s Shipping, Returns, and Refunds Policy in effect from time to time, as found HERE.
We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to refuse or cancel any order for any reason. No order shall be binding upon Company until received and accepted by Company in its sole discretion. Your account may also be restricted or terminated for any reason at our sole discretion. For your convenience, you will not be charged until your payment method is authorized, the order information is verified for accuracy, and your order is shipped. Some situations that may result in your order being canceled include limitations on quantities available for purchase, inaccuracies or errors in product or pricing information, or problems identified by our credit and fraud avoidance department. We may also require additional verifications or information before accepting any order. We will contact you if all or any portion of your order is canceled or if additional information is required to accept your order. If your order is canceled after your credit card (or other payment account) has been charged, we will issue a credit to your credit card (or other applicable payment account) in the amount of the charge.
Full payment for Products must be made upon placement of each order by Customer. We accept credit and debit cards issued by U.S. banks. If a debit or credit card account is being used for a transaction, Company may obtain preapproval for an amount up to the amount of the payment. Billing to Customer’s credit card occurs either at the time of purchase or when the order is shipped, at Company’s option.
You represent and warrant that if you are making online payments that (i) any credit card, debit card, and bank account information you supply is true, correct, and complete, (ii) charges incurred by you will be honored by your credit/debit card company or bank, (iii) you will pay the charges incurred by you in the amounts posted, including any applicable taxes, and (iv) you are the person in whose name the card was issued and you are authorized to make a purchase or other transaction with the relevant credit card and credit card information.

The Platform may include forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 about securities of an issuer which are located on the Platform.

Company shall be excused from, and shall not have any liability for, any delay in delivery, non-delivery, or other failure to perform any of its obligations under this Agreement where Company’s delay, non-delivery, or failure to perform is caused, in whole or in part, by a Force Majeure Event. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, if Company is delayed in performing under this Agreement due to a Force Majeure Event, Company will be entitled to, at Company’s option, (a) extend the relevant delivery date by the amount of time that Company was delayed as a result of the Force Majeure Event, plus such additional time as may be reasonably necessary to overcome the effect of the delay or (b) terminate the delayed order. A “Force Majeure Event” is a condition or event that is beyond the reasonable control of Company, whether foreseeable or unforeseeable, foreseen or unforeseen, including, without limitation, severe weather, storm, flooding, hurricane, tornado, earthquakes, seismic disturbances, acts of God, acts or omissions of Customer, a breach, negligence, criminal misconduct or other act or omission of any third-party, climate change, natural disasters or other acts of God, fire or other insured or uninsured casualty, quarantines, epidemics, pandemics, disease, viruses, condemnation, strikes, slowdowns or other labor disputes, transportation interruptions, fires, explosions or other casualties, thefts, vandalism, riots or war, acts of terrorism, electrical power outages, labor shortage (including, without limitation, due to infection or fear of infection of a communicable disease), interruptions or degradations in telecommunications, computer, or electronic communications systems, changes in laws, acts of government agencies, government-mandated allocation requirements, issuances of executive orders or other government orders, government-mandated shutdowns or shelter-in-place orders, or unavailability of parts, materials or supplies at a commercially reasonable price.

Neither party’s delay or failure in enforcing any right or remedy afforded under this Agreement or by law shall prejudice or operate to waive that right or remedy or any other right or remedy which it may have available; nor shall any such failure or delay operate to waive either party’s rights to any available remedies due to a future breach of this Agreement, whether of a like or different character. The parties understand and agree that nothing contained in this Agreement shall be construed as creating a joint venture, partnership, or other similar arrangement between the parties. Customer shall not assign its rights or delegate its duties under this Agreement. Any such attempted assignment or delegation shall be null and void.
