Users who choose to sign up for a mailing list may receive regular emails from the site, consisting of content from the site in question and/or content from third party sponsors.

Except for confirmed manufacturer defects, you are responsible for all freight and shipping charges as well as a restocking fee of 15%, of the sale price, for unaccepted or refused delivery shipments.

Backorders: If your order contains a pre-ordered item, or a back-ordered item, the entire order will ship once all items are in stock.
Damage/Loss: All claims for damage/pilferage must be filed by you with the delivering carrier. We cannot file these for you. All claims for incorrect shipments/billing must be made within 10 days of receipt.
