1. Availability and Pricing
All items offered for sale through the Site are subject to availability, and we reserve the right to impose quantity limits on any order, reject all or any part of an order, and discontinue offering items without prior notice, even if you have already placed an order for an item. All prices are shown in U.S. dollars and applicable Taxes (as defined below) and other charges, if any, are additional. All prices are subject to change without notice.
In the event that an item you are interested in purchasing is not listed on the Site or is listed as "Contact Us" on the Site, it may not be available for ordering from our online inventory, but may be available elsewhere. Please contact our customer care team at 1(877)-77-GO-GBC or email us at email@example.com. Please check back at a later time as our inventory is subject to change.
You are responsible for any sales, use, duty, or other governmental taxes or fees (“Taxes”) due with respect to your purchase of items through the Site. We will collect applicable Taxes if we determine we have a duty to collect such Taxes. We will present an estimate of Taxes to be collected at checkout, except where we have clearly stated in writing that a price includes Taxes. The actual taxes charged may be adjusted from the amount shown at checkout. Several factors may cause this adjustment, such as variances between processor programs and changes in rates of Taxes.
By providing a credit card or other payment method accepted by us, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the designated payment method and that you authorize us (or our third-party payment processor) to charge your payment method for the total amount of your order (including any applicable Taxes and other charges). If the payment method cannot be verified, is invalid or is otherwise not acceptable, your order may be suspended or cancelled. You must resolve any problem we encounter in order to proceed with your order. In the event you would like to change or update payment information associated with your account on the Site, you can do so at any time by logging into your account and editing your payment information. If any of the items in your order are unavailable, we will charge only the prices, Taxes and other applicable charges associated with the items that are included in the shipment.
4. Shipping and Handling
You agree to pay any shipping and handling charges shown at the time you make a purchase. We reserve the right to increase, decrease, add or eliminate shipping and handling charges from time to time; however, we will provide notice of the changes applicable to you before you make your purchase. Any delivery dates or times shown as part of the checkout process are estimates only and are not guaranteed. Unless we state otherwise, risk of loss or damage to an item passes to you upon delivery of the item to your specified delivery location.
