Terms & Conditions
Please read this document carefully. By accessing and using our web sites you acknowledge that you have read and understood these terms & conditions and agree to comply with and be bound by these terms & conditions without modification.
1. Authorized access and use of our web sites
We authorize you to access and use our web sites provided that you consent to these terms & conditions. Accessing or using our web sites without consenting to these terms & conditions is unauthorized and prohibited. Any access or use of our web sites for unlawful purposes, purposes other than those allowed under these terms & conditions or in a manner contrary to these terms & conditions is unauthorized and prohibited. Among other things, attempts to "crack," disrupt, bring down, infect with a computer virus or worm, block access to by others, or spoof our web sites are unauthorized. Also unauthorized are attempts to impersonate others or to intercept data intended for others. Unauthorized use may be a violation of law, including a violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986 and National Information Infrastructure Protection Act (18 U.S.C. § 1030) and mail fraud statutes if it leads to an item being delivered by mail and may result in criminal penalties.
2. Neither online ordering nor online purchasing
We appreciate your business, but we offer neither online ordering nor online purchasing. We offer online credit or debit card payment processing for your convenience to pay for a pro forma invoice (i.e. a formal quotation) or an invoice that you have received form us already. You must agree to abide by these terms & conditions in exchange for taking advantage of this convenience. If you do not want to abide by these terms, payments can be submitted by check or wire transfer, alternatively.
Please Contact us if you want to receive a formal quotation or to place an order.
Please Contact us if you have any questions regarding your formal quotation or your invoice.
Please Contact us if you need support to send a check by mail, or to wire transfer your payment.
3. Payment processing information and payment related questions
We cannot guarantee that any data you transmit to us while making a credit or debit card payment will not be intercepted by third parties. Different payment methods can have different rules regarding unauthorized transactions. For instance: Credit card transactions can be reversed in many instances and your liability for unauthorized transactions generally cannot exceed a certain amount.
Direct debit (Automated Clearing House debit) transactions also can be reversed in many instances, but your liability for unauthorized transactions can be higher than for credit card transactions, ranging up to a potentially unlimited amount, depending on when the unauthorized transaction(s) are reported to your financial institution. We are not processing your payment. We cannot provide information about why a payment was rejected or delayed.
4. Caution about sending unencrypted information over the internet
If you choose to send us information electronically or request that we send you information electronically (such as by e-mail), we cannot guarantee its confidentiality as it travels across the internet. While not likely, others could eavesdrop. To make this less likely, we may use encryption to protect information that you send or view via web sites (this does not apply to e-mail). Our web sites utilize a secure transmission protocol (Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)) to provide protection of the web site communications across the internet between our web sites and your computer. SSL is a commonly used protocol for managing the security of an interactive web session on the internet. If a web site has an address that begins with rather than then the page is protected by SSL.
5. Communication by e-mail
We may send notices to your e-mail address with regard to transactions you conduct on our web sites, such as confirmation notices, but otherwise we will not use your personal information to send you unsolicited information unless you opt-in to do so, such as by asking to be placed on an e-mail list.
Because e-mail is an insecure form of communication, we will attempt to limit any information sent to your e-mail address to non-sensitive information, unless you specifically request otherwise. You must maintain, at your own expense, internet access and services necessary to maintain your e-mail account. We will have no liability for your failure to receive any communication that we have sent to your designated e-mail address.
All communications made in electronic and paper format will be considered to be "in writing".
6. Information automatically gathered
For web site security purposes as well as to improve our web site, we use software that can monitor network traffic and identify unauthorized attempts to cause damage or upload or change information. Like all web sites, when a page is requested our web sites can obtain some information about the request, such as: name of the domain from which the visitor accesses the internet (e.g. "a company.com"; " a school.edu; or "an agency.gov"), internet protocol address, date and time the web site is visited and type of browser and operating system used to access the site. Aggregate information about individual web pages visited also is collected.
We generally do not use this automatically gathered information to attempt to identify individual users. We may use this information for authorized law enforcement investigations related to our web sites. This includes attempting to trace the source of an attack designed to disrupt or bring down the site or to prove whether a financial transaction has taken place. Otherwise, we only use this information to improve the content and structure of our web sites.
7. Limitations on liability
Except as otherwise required by law, in no event will we be liable for any damages other than actual damages arising in connection with online credit or debit card payment processing, including without limitation indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages. In no event will we be liable for any failure of performance, error, computer virus or worm, omission, interruption, defect, delay in operation or transmission.
We will have no liability for any act or omission of any third party (such as a provider of telecommunication services, Internet access, or computer equipment or software) or any circumstances beyond its control. Except as otherwise required by law, we do not make any warranties, express or implied (including warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose), with respect to any software, information, service, or other item provided by, located on, derived from, associated with or linked to by our web sites. Everything is provided “as is”.
8. Comments, feedback, and customer service questions
We welcome your comments, feedback, and customer service questions. In this regard, we may in our discretion take full rights to make use of any ideas or suggestions you provide without giving compensation in return. For comments, feedback, and customer service inquiries, please Contact us
We may from time to time amend these notices and this agreement. Your repeated use of our web sites on or after the effective date of any amendment evidences your agreement to the terms of that amendment.
10. Linked sites
Our web sites may contain links to third party web sites not under our control ("linked sites"). We are not responsible for the contents or absence of contents of any linked sites. We provide these links to you only as a convenience and the inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement by us.
