We reserve the right to change or update information and to correct errors, inaccuracies, or omissions at any time without prior notice.

7.4 - Prices Policy

The Company or Operator and Seller reserve the right to revise their prices at any time prior to accepting an Order.

The prices quoted may be revised by the Company or Operator subsequent to accepting an Order in the event of any occurrence affecting delivery caused by government action, variation in customs duties, increased shipping charges, higher foreign exchange costs, and any other matter beyond the control of the Company or Operator or the Seller. In that event, You will have the right to cancel Your Order.

7.5 - Payments

Payment can be made through various payment methods we have available. We rely on payment gateways that have their own terms of service and their own limitations.

We reserve the right to refuse or cancel Your Order if fraud or an unauthorized or illegal transaction or trade is suspected.

If You as a Seller cancel an Order, the amount the Buyer paid (including the Service fees) will be refunded to the Buyer and will not be transferred to the Seller.

If something outside Your control requires You to cancel an Order, or if You think your Order should be refunded, contact Us.

8 - Disclaimer of Warranties and Limitation of Liability

8.1 - Limitation of Liability

Notwithstanding any damages that You might incur, the entire liability of the Company or Operator and any of its suppliers under any provision of this Terms and Your exclusive remedy for all of the foregoing shall be limited to the amount actually paid by You through the Service or 100 USD (or its equivalent in the Service local currency) if You haven't purchased anything through the Service.

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event shall the Company or Operator or its suppliers be liable for any special, incidental, indirect, or consequential damages whatsoever (including, but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, loss of data or other information, for business interruption, for personal injury, loss of privacy arising out of or in any way related to the use of or inability to use the Service, third-party software and/or third-party hardware used with the Service, or otherwise in connection with any provision of this Terms), even if the Company or Operator or any supplier has been advised of the possibility of such damages and even if the remedy fails of its essential purpose.

Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, which means that some of the above limitations may not apply. In these jurisdictions, each party's liability will be limited to the greatest extent permitted by law.

8.2 - "AS IS" and "AS AVAILABLE" Disclaimer

The Service is provided to You "AS IS" and "AS AVAILABLE" and with all faults and defects without warranty of any kind. To the maximum extent permitted under applicable law, the Company or Operator, on its own behalf and on behalf of its Affiliates and its and their respective licensors and service providers, expressly disclaims all warranties, whether express, implied, statutory, or otherwise, with respect to the Service, including all implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title and non-infringement, and warranties that may arise out of the course of dealing, performance, usage or trade practice. Without limitation to the foregoing, the Company or Operator provides no warranty or undertaking, and makes no representation of any kind that the Service will meet Your requirements, achieve any intended results, be compatible or work with any other software, applications, systems, or services, operate without interruption, meet any performance or reliability standards or be error-free or that any errors or defects can or will be corrected.

Without limiting the foregoing, neither the Company nor Operator nor any of the company's providers makes any representation or warranty of any kind, express or implied: (i) as to the operation or availability of the Service, or the information, content, and materials or products included thereon; (ii) that the Service will be uninterrupted or error-free; (iii) as to the accuracy, reliability, or currency of any information or content provided through the Service; or (iv) that the Service, its servers, the content, or e-mails sent from or on behalf of the Company or Operator are free of viruses, scripts, trojan horses, worms, malware, timebombs or other harmful components.

Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain types of warranties or limitations on applicable statutory rights of a consumer, so some or all of the above exclusions and limitations may not apply to You. But in such a case the exclusions and limitations set forth in this section shall be applied to the greatest extent enforceable under applicable law.

8.3 - Links to Other Websites

Our Service may contain links to third-party websites or services that are not owned or controlled by the Company or Operator.

The Company or Operator has no control over and assumes no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third-party websites or services. You further acknowledge and agree that the Company or Operator shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with the use of or reliance on any such content, goods, or services available on or through any such web sites or services.

We strongly advise You to read the terms of service and privacy policies of any third-party websites or services that You visit.

12 - Changes to these Terms of Service

We reserve the right, at Our sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time.
