THIS DOCUMENT CONTAINS VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS, AS WELL AS CONDITIONS, LIMITATIONS, AND EXCLUSIONS THAT MIGHT APPLY TO YOU. PLEASE READ IT CAREFULLY. THESE TERMS REQUIRE THE USE OF ARBITRATION TO RESOLVE DISPUTES, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS. BY PLACING AN ORDER FOR PRODUCTS FROM THIS WEBSITE, YOU AFFIRM THAT YOU ARE OF LEGAL AGE TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT, AND YOU ACCEPT AND ARE BOUND BY THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS. YOU AFFIRM THAT IF YOU PLACE AN ORDER ON BEHALF OF AN ORGANIZATION OR COMPANY, YOU HAVE THE LEGAL AUTHORITY TO BIND ANY SUCH ORGANIZATION OR COMPANY TO THESE TERMS. YOU MAY NOT ORDER OR OBTAIN PRODUCTS FROM THIS WEBSITE IF YOU (A) DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, (B) ARE NOT AT LEAST 18 YEARS OF AGE OR THE LEGAL AGE TO FORM A BINDING CONTRACT WITH THE COMPANY, OR (C) ARE PROHIBITED FROM ACCESSING OR USING THIS WEBSITE OR ANY OF THIS WEBSITE’S CONTENTS, PRODUCTS OR SERVICES BY APPLICABLE LAW.
1. ORDER ACCEPTANCE AND CANCELLATION.
You agree that your order is an offer to buy, under these Terms, all products listed in your order. All orders must be accepted by us or we will not be obligated to sell the products to you. We may choose not to accept any orders in our sole discretion. After having received your order, we will send you a confirmation email with your order number and details of the items you have ordered. Acceptance of your order and the formation of the contract of sale between the Company and you will not take place unless and until you have received your order confirmation email. You may cancel your order, subject to the terms set forth herein, by calling our Customer Service Department at 929-427-5305.
2. PRICES AND PAYMENT TERMS.
a. All prices, discounts, and promotions posted on this Site are subject to change without notice. The list price charged for a product will be the price advertised on this Site at the time the order is placed, subject to the terms of any promotions or discounts that may be applicable. The price charged will be clearly stated in your order confirmation email. Price increases will only apply to orders placed after the time of the increase. Listed prices do not include taxes or charges for shipping and handling or insurance, if applicable. All shipping and handling or insurance charges will be added to your total price, and will be itemized in your order confirmation email or final invoice. We strive to display accurate price information; however, we may on occasion make inadvertent typographical errors, inaccuracies, or omissions related to pricing and availability. We are not responsible for pricing, typographical, or other errors in any offer by us and we reserve the right to correct any such errors and to cancel any orders arising from such errors.
b. All prices listed on this Site are exclusive of all sales, use, and excise taxes, and any other similar taxes, duties, and charges of any kind (including interest and penalties) imposed by any governmental authority on any amounts payable by you as a result of placing an order on this Site (collectively, “Taxes”), and you are responsible for all such Taxes. You represent and warrant that you are a reseller of any products purchased on this Site and that in connection with any orders placed on the Site, you: (i) are not obligated to pay Taxes; or (ii) have a valid resale or other exemption certificate (a “Resale Certificate”), as applicable. You agree to provide a relevant Resale Certificate or other documentation, if any, to the Company promptly upon request. The Company shall not be responsible for any Taxes if a Resale Certificate is not accepted by the applicable governmental authority, and you shall be solely liable for and obligated to pay for any Taxes assessed by a governmental authority or any other third party in connection with, arising out of, or otherwise resulting from the purchase of any products on the Site.
c. Terms of payment are within our sole discretion and, unless otherwise agreed by us in writing, payment must be received by us before our acceptance of an order. All payments must be made from an account in your name by wire transfer unless you otherwise qualify for one of the following types of payment, as determined by us in our sole and absolute discretion: credit card; PayPal; Cash on Delivery (“COD”) or COD certified; and Behalf payments. If paying by credit card, you represent and warrant that: (i) the credit card information you supply to us is true, correct, and complete; (ii) you are duly authorized to use such credit card for the purchase; (iii) charges incurred by you will be honored by your credit card company; and (iv) you will pay charges incurred by you at the posted prices, including all applicable taxes, if any.
d. If you place an order for products, we will hold the products for a certain period of time (each, a “Grace Period”) following the date and time in which you placed the order (each, an “Order Time”) until the date and time specified by us in your order confirmation (each, a “Cut-Off Time”). In the event you modify or split an existing order during the applicable Grace Period, the Grace Period will not be extended and the modified order will be treated for all purposes as having been placed at the original Order Time. If you do not make full payment for your order and your order is not reflected as paid within our payment processing system by the applicable Cut-Off Time, your order will be automatically cancelled unless you elect, prior to the applicable Cut-Off Time, to reserve the ordered products beyond the applicable Grace Period by opting-in to the reservation of inventory terms set forth in Section 3 (the “Reservation of Inventory Terms”), and, in doing so, thereby acknowledge and agree that you will be subject to, and be responsible to pay, the applicable reservation and cancellation fees in accordance with the Reservation of Inventory Terms.
3. RESERVATION OF INVENTORY TERMS.
a. Upon opting-in to the Reservation of Inventory Terms, whether directly or indirectly through your Company sales representative, you will be charged additional, daily reservation fees for each product that is held on your behalf by the Company (each, a “Daily Reservation Fee” and collectively, the “Daily Reservation Fees”), for each twenty-four (24) hour period after the expiration of the applicable Grace Period. Each Daily Reservation Fee shall be an amount equal to a percentage of the price of each product ordered, as determined by the Company in its sole discretion. The aggregate Daily Reservation Fees, which amount will be communicated to you upon your agreement to opt-in to the Reservation of Inventory Terms, will be based on the total value of your order at such time. A Daily Reservation Fee will accrue for each product within your order for each twenty-four (24) hour period, beginning at the time in which the applicable Grace Period expires, until the earlier of: (i) the time in which you make full payment for the order, including payment of all applicable Daily Reservation Fees, and such amounts are marked as paid in our system; (ii) your order is marked by us as ready for fulfillment; or (iii) each ordered product is cancelled in which case you will no longer be charged Daily Reservations Fees, but you will be charged the Cancellation Fees as provided for below in Section 3(b). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, your order will only be marked as paid or ready for fulfillment when payment is received by us on a Business Day between the hours of 9:00 a.m. EST and 4:30 p.m. EST. If a payment is received outside of such time period, your order may not be reflected as paid or ready for fulfillment by us until the following Business Day and as such you may be responsible for additional Daily Reservation Fees.
b. In the event you or the Company cancel any product within your order after the expiration of the applicable Grace Period, you will be responsible for paying us a cancellation fee (each, a “Cancellation Fee” and collectively, the “Cancellation Fees”); provided, however, that the Company will only cancel your order if you exceed the maximum reservation period which will be communicated to you upon your opting-in to the Reservation of Inventory Terms. The Cancellation Fees shall be an amount equal to a percentage of the price of the cancelled products, as determined by the Company in its sole discretion, multiplied by the number of twenty-four (24) hour periods, beginning as of the time of expiration of the applicable Grace Period through and including the time of cancellation.
c. You acknowledge and agree that the Cancellation Fees required to be paid hereunder (the “Liquidated Damages”) constitute compensation, and not a penalty. The Company’s harm caused by your failure to pay for your order in accordance with these Terms would be impossible or very difficult to accurately estimate as of the Order Date, and that the Liquidated Damages are a reasonable estimate of the anticipated or actual harm that might arise from such failure. Your payment of the Liquidated Damages is your sole liability and entire obligation and the Company’s exclusive remedy for any failure by you to make full payment for your order in accordance with these Terms. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, you acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible and shall indemnify, defend and hold us harmless from and against any and all claims, damages, liability costs, fees, and expenses incurred by us relating to any taxes, duties, and charges of any kind imposed by any governmental authority on any amounts payable by you as a result of placing an order on this Site, as well as any applicable Daily Reservation Fees and Cancellation Fees.
4. PROMOTIONAL PAYMENT TERMS.
As a member of the Site, you may be eligible from time to time to receive an offer to apply for promotional payment terms (“Promotional Payment Terms”), which Promotional Payment Terms will enable you to make payment for purchases within thirty (30) days following the date of order confirmation (as opposed to making full payment prior to our acceptance of an order), unless and until the Company provides notice to you that you are no longer permitted to place orders on the Promotional Payment Terms. All purchases made under the Promotional Payment Terms shall be paid directly by you via wire transfer and you will not be eligible to use any other form of payment that is otherwise permitted under Section 2(c). You agree to pay a late fee in an amount equal to one percent (1%) of any payment, or portion thereof, that is more than five (5) days late, compounded monthly, or the maximum amount allowed by applicable law, whichever is less. Such late charge shall be paid without prejudice to any other rights of the Company. Should the Company elect to engage attorneys or collection agencies or initiate any legal process to recover any amounts owed by you, you agree to pay all collection costs including any collection agency fees and/or reasonable attorney’s fees. All other terms set forth herein shall apply with respect to the Promotional Payment Terms. Your right to participate in the Promotional Payment Terms will be contingent upon certain background and credit checks provided by a third-party service provider and the Company may revoke your right to participate in the Promotional Payment Terms at any time, in the Company’s sole and absolute discretion, by providing notice to you that you are no longer permitted to participate in the Promotional Payment Terms. In order to determine eligibility for the Promotional Payment Terms, you will be required to execute a separate written agreement consenting to, authorizing and instructing the Company and such third-party service provider to provide such background information, consumer report or similar information as may be necessary for us and such third-party service provider to determine your eligibility to receive the Promotional Payment Terms.
From time to time we may list items for real time, open auctions. We will set a minimum reserve price for any products subject to auction on the Site. We reserve the right not to sell products subject to any such auction if the winning bid does not meet the minimum reserve price. By placing a bid for products in an auction, you agree that should your bid win an auction on the Site, you will make payment for such products upon conclusion of the auction according to these Terms. In order to participate in any such auctions, please see the applicable auction page for any additional specific terms and conditions. Auction items are not subject to our return policy. Any return policies applicable to specific items listed for auction will be provided along with the other terms and conditions of auction on the applicable auction page.
6. SHIPMENTS; DELIVERY; TITLE AND RISK OF LOSS.
a. We will arrange for shipment of the products to you. Please check the shipping and insurance page for specific delivery options and pricing. You will pay all shipping and handling charges (and the cost of any shipment insurance, as applicable) unless otherwise specified in the order confirmation. You are responsible to correctly input your shipping address and freight option.
b. Title and risk of loss pass to you upon our transfer of the products to the carrier. Shipping and delivery dates are estimates only and cannot be guaranteed. We are not liable for any delays in shipments or damage to shipments once placed with the carrier. You are responsible to select and pay for any shipment insurance.

Returns and refunds will be made in the sole discretion of the Company. Please see our terms and conditions for returns and refunds at Returns Policy.

OUR SOLE AND ENTIRE MAXIMUM LIABILITY, FOR ANY REASON, AND YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER, SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE ACTUAL AMOUNT PAID BY YOU FOR THE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES YOU HAVE ORDERED THROUGH OUR SITE.
9. IMPORT AND EXPORT.
a. For Domestic Purchasers. This Section 9(a) shall apply to all purchasers domiciled within the United States. You agree to comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the various states and of the United States including all Export Regulations, as defined below. Products purchased from the Site may be controlled for export purposes by export regulations, including but not limited to, the Export Administration Act of 1979 (50 U.S.C. 2401-2410), the Export Administration Regulations promulgated thereunder (15 C.F.R. 768-799), and the Foreign Asset Control Regulations administered by the Office of Foreign Assets control in the U.S. Department of Treasury, and supplemental regulations (collectively, “Export Regulations”). At the Company’s sole discretion, we may refuse to ship product to certain entities and/or locations in order to comply with United States laws and regulations.
b. For International Purchasers. In the Company’s sole discretion, we may refuse to ship products to certain locations outside the United States in order to comply with United States laws and regulations. All purchasers located outside of the United States agree to comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the applicable destination country for any products purchased from this Site, including without limitation all applicable import laws and regulations.
c. For all Purchasers. If you are a distributor or reseller (each, a “Distributor/Reseller”), you shall comply with all applicable export control and trade embargo laws, rules and regulations, including but not limited to the U.S. Export Administration Regulations, the U.S. International Traffic in Arms Regulations and the regulations as governed by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”), relating to the performance of your obligations hereunder, and shall not use, resell, export, re-export, distribute, transfer, dispose or otherwise deal with the products, or any spare parts, warranty items or technical data/technology related to the products, directly or indirectly, without first obtaining all necessary written consents, permits, and authorizations, and completing such formalities as may be required by any such laws, rules and regulations. Upon reasonable request, the Company shall provide Distributor/Reseller with assistance in determining the application of such laws, and in applying for necessary authorizations and completing required formalities. Failure by the Distributor/Reseller to comply with applicable export-control laws, rules and regulations shall constitute a material breach of the Agreement. Distributor/Reseller shall not do anything that would cause the Company to be in breach of the applicable export-control laws, rules and regulations, and shall protect, indemnify and hold the Company harmless from any claim, damages, liability costs, fees, and expenses incurred by the Company as a result of the failure or omission of Distributor/Reseller to comply with such laws, rules and regulations. You agree that all goods purchased be shipped within all legal requirements. No goods will be shipped to any OFAC-sanctioned country or territory or to any individual or entity specified as “Specially Designated Nationals” by OFAC.
11. FORCE MAJEURE.
We will not be liable or responsible to you, nor be deemed to have defaulted or breached these Terms, for any failure or delay in our performance under these Terms when and to the extent such failure or delay is caused by or results from acts or circumstances beyond our reasonable control, including, without limitation, acts of God, flood, fire, earthquake, explosion, hurricane, governmental actions, war, invasion, or hostilities (whether war is declared or not), terrorist threats or acts, riot or other civil unrest, national emergency, revolution, insurrection, epidemic, lockouts, strikes or other labor disputes (whether or not relating to our workforce), or restraints or delays affecting carriers or inability or delay in obtaining supplies of adequate or suitable materials, materials or telecommunication breakdown or power outage.
12. GOVERNING LAW.
All matters arising out of or relating to these Terms are governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of New York without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of New York or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than those of the State of New York.
13. WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION.
a. YOU AND THE COMPANY ARE AGREEING TO GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY, OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT MAY ALSO BE UNAVAILABLE OR MAY BE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION. ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE, OR CONTROVERSY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE, WHETHER PRE-EXISTING, PRESENT, OR FUTURE, AND INCLUDING STATUTORY, CONSUMER PROTECTION, COMMON LAW, INTENTIONAL TORT, INJUNCTIVE, AND EQUITABLE CLAIMS) BETWEEN YOU AND US ARISING FROM OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO YOUR PURCHASE OF PRODUCTS THROUGH THE SITE, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION.
b. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, including, if appropriate, the Procedures for Large, Complex Commercial Disputes, the International Commercial Arbitration Supplementary Procedures, and the Supplementary Rules for Class Arbitrations. The arbitration shall be governed by New York law and shall occur at a venue to be agreed upon in writing by the parties hereto in New York County, New York. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY WITH RESPECT TO ANY SUCH CLAIM. The arbitrator will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to arbitrability and/or enforceability of this arbitration provision, including any unconscionability challenge or any other challenge that the arbitration provision or the Agreement is void, voidable, or otherwise invalid. The arbitrator will be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity. Any award of the arbitrator(s) will be final and binding on each of the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. If you prevail on any claim that affords the prevailing party attorneys’ fees, the arbitrator may award reasonable fees to you under the standards for fee shifting provided by law.
c. You may elect to pursue your claim in small-claims court rather than arbitration if you provide us with written notice of your intention do so within thirty (30) days of the date that you first accept these Terms. The arbitration or small-claims court proceeding will be limited solely to your individual dispute or controversy. You agree to arbitration on an individual basis. In any dispute, NEITHER YOU NOR THE COMPANY WILL BE ENTITLED TO JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS BY OR AGAINST OTHER CUSTOMERS IN COURT OR IN ARBITRATION OR OTHERWISE PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLAIM AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE, CLASS MEMBER OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. The arbitral tribunal may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitral tribunal has no power to consider the enforceability of this class arbitration waiver and any challenge to the class arbitration waiver may only be raised in a court of competent jurisdiction.
d. If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be severed and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced. You agree that with respect to any claim or controversy excluded from arbitration pursuant to the terms of this Section or determined by an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction to be excluded from this Section (“Excluded Claim”), you hereby irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts sitting in New York County, New York for the adjudication of any Excluded Claim, and hereby irrevocably waive, and agree not to assert in any suit, action or proceeding, any claim that you are not personally subject to the jurisdiction of any such court, that such suit, action or proceeding is brought in an inconvenient forum or that the venue of such suit, action or proceeding is improper. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed or operate to preclude a party from bringing suit or taking other legal action against the other party in any other jurisdiction to enforce a judgment or other court ruling in favor of such party. EACH PARTY HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO, AND AGREES NOT TO REQUEST, A JURY TRIAL FOR THE ADJUDICATION OF ANY DISPUTE HEREUNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH OR ARISING OUT OF THESE TERMS OR ANY TRANSACTION CONTEMPLATED HEREBY.
You will not assign any of your rights or delegate any of your obligations under these Terms without our prior written consent. Any purported assignment or delegation in violation of this Section 14 is null and void. No assignment or delegation relieves you of any of your obligations under these Terms.
15. NO WAIVERS.
The failure by us to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of the Company.
16. NO THIRD PARTY BENEFICIARIES.
These Terms do not and are not intended to confer any rights or remedies upon any person other than you.
a. To You: We may provide any notice to you under these Terms by: (i) sending a message to the email address you provide; or (ii) by posting to the Site.
