Validating Customer’s Order. Information provided to Seller when an order is placed, such as billing/shipping address and phone number, will be used to verify Customer’s payment. Incorrect information will result in a delay in processing and may impact the final shipping date of the order. Orders in which sufficient information cannot be verified may be cancelled; however, Seller reserves the right to cancel any order at any time without giving any reason. Seller’s issuance of an order confirmation, whether electronic or other form, does not signify Seller’s acceptance of the order, nor does it constitute confirmation of Seller’s offer to sell. Seller reserves the right at any time after receipt of an order to accept or decline the order and/or to limit quantities on any order, without giving any reason. Seller reserves the right to limit or prohibit sales to resellers.
Shipment and Delivery. This offer is made with the understanding that it is subject to inventory availability. All shipping and handling expenses are the sole responsibility of Customer. Delivery dates are estimates only and are based on normal shipping conditions (shipping conditions and actual shipping dates may vary). Seller will endeavor to meet all estimated delivery dates indicated on the order confirmation; provided, however, that Seller reserves the right to change any and all such delivery dates subject to Seller’s availability schedule without notice and without liability to Customer. Method and route of shipment are at Seller’s discretion unless Customer chose shipment options other than Seller’s standard shipment with respect thereto. All shipments are made at Customer’s risk. Non-delivery by Seller as to any order shall not be deemed a breach of this Agreement. Any non-delivery shall not relieve Customer from its obligation to accept any subsequent or prior shipment. All shipments shall be packaged in accordance with Seller’s standard and customary packaging practices. Seller retains the right, at its option, to cancel these Terms and Conditions, and any order, in whole or in part, without any resulting liability to Customer or any third party. For additional details about shipping, please see our Shipping Policy, the terms and conditions of which are hereby made a part hereof by reference.
Title and Risk of Loss. Title to and risk of loss and damage for any shipment of goods shall pass to Customer immediately upon deposit of such shipment with a common carrier.
Acceptance; Return. Except as provided in this paragraph, Customer shall accept all goods shipped in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. In order to return a shipment, Customer must contact Seller within thirty (30) days after date of the shipment (each, a “Return Notice”). If no such notice is provided, then Customer shall be deemed to have accepted the shipment of the goods and to have waived any and all claims with respect thereto. No claim of any kind (whether as to delivered goods or for non-delivery of goods, including claims of improper or defective materials and whether arising in tort or contract) shall be greater in amount than the purchase price of the goods in respect of which such damages are claimed. Upon receipt of a Return Notice reasonably acceptable to Seller, at its sole discretion, Seller shall issue a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number to Customer. In no case shall Customer return goods without first obtaining an RMA number. Returned goods must be delivered to Seller, in their original packaging and be accompanied by Customer’s RMA number. Customer must prepay shipping charges and insure the shipment or accept the risk if the goods are lost or damaged in shipment. Refunds or credits do not include original shipping and handling charges. For additional details about returns, please see our Return Policy, the terms and conditions of which are hereby made a part hereof by reference.
Cancelling an Order. Seller will accept cancellation of an order that has not yet shipped at Customer’s request and cancel or refund any charges that were posted for the order. Customer shall be responsible for round trip shipping costs on any order that has been shipped prior to cancellation, that is refused at time of delivery, or that is shipped in good faith but returned to Seller due to incorrect or incomplete shipping information provided by Customer.

Limitation of Liability. SELLER SHALL NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES BE LIABLE FOR SPECIAL, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY NATURE WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY LOST REVENUES, PROFITS, OR BUSINESS OF CUSTOMER OR ITS CUSTOMERS, AGENTS, AND DISTRIBUTORS, RESULTING FROM, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH, ANY SALE, MANUFACTURE, DISTRIBUTION OR ANY USE OF ANY GOODS OR FOR ANY FAILURE OF SUPPLY OF ANY GOODS FOR ANY REASON, WHETHER OR NOT SELLER HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THE FOREGOING LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SHALL APPLY TO ANY DAMAGES RELATED TO GOODS PURCHASED AND SOLD HEREUNDER.
Indemnification. Customer shall indemnify, defend, and hold Seller harmless from and against any and all loss, cost, liability, and expense (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs) incurred and/or paid by Seller resulting from or arising out of or in connection with (a) any representation or warranty made to any third party by Customer, its affiliates, agents, distributors, or employees which is not expressly authorized by Seller in writing and (b) any claims asserted or actions filed against Seller by a third party, including claims for personal injury or property damage, except if liability for such claims or actions arises from the willful misconduct of Seller.
Force Majeure. Except as otherwise expressly set forth herein, Seller shall not be liable for any delay or for any consequence of any delay in the delivery of any goods if such delay shall be due to acts of God, acts of terrorism, acts of a public enemy, changes in law, wars, floods, fires, storms, strikes, lockouts, delivery of nonconforming or defective material, supplies, or equipment, significant interruptions of transportation, freight embargoes or failures, exhaustion or unavailability on the open market or delays in delivery of material, supplies, equipment, or services necessary for the performance of any provision hereof, or the happening of any material and reasonably unforeseeable act, misfortune, or casualty by which performance hereunder is delayed or prevented; provided, however, that Seller will use all commercially reasonable efforts to remedy the situation, except that nothing contained herein shall require Seller to make settlement of any labor dispute on terms unacceptable to it. If any such delay occurs, then (unless the cause thereof shall frustrate or render impossible or illegal the performance under these Terms and Conditions or shall otherwise discharge the same), Seller’s period for performing its obligations shall be extended by such period (not limited to the length of the delay) as it may reasonably require to complete the performance of its obligation.
Severability. If any part of these Terms and Conditions shall be held unenforceable, the remainder hereof shall nevertheless remain in full force and effect and, to the extent permissible under applicable law, such unenforceable provision or provisions shall be deemed revised to the minimum extent possible to permit enforcement of such provision on terms as near as possible to such provision as originally drafted.
