SECTION 21 - SHIPPING RESTRICTIONS
Some products can’t be shipped to all geographical locations due to warranty issues, manufacturer requirements, legal and other restrictions. You’ll be notified when placing your order if we’re unable to ship specific items to the address you’ve indicated. Please also check the product detail pages for any item-specific shipping restrictions. We reserve the right to cancel any shipment, in its sole discretion, and issue a full refund.
SECTION 22 – RISK OF LOSS
All items purchased from us are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon delivery to the carrier. We are not responsible for items lost in transit, items sent to the wrong address, products seized by customs or governmental agencies nor international fees charged by your country or third parties.
SECTION 23 - DISPUTES
Any dispute or claim (excluding any that you may assert in small claims court if your claims qualify) relating in any way to your use of the Services, or to any products or services sold or marketed by us or through the site will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, in the County of Suffolk, New York, administered by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Terms & Conditions as a court would.
We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
