skspeakers and its suppliers and licensors may make available various Materials.  The Materials are for educational and informational purposes only, and errors may appear from time to time.  Before you act in reliance on any Materials, you should confirm any facts that are important to your decision.  The skspeakers Entities make no warranty as to the reliability, accuracy, timeliness, usefulness, or completeness of any Materials.  If you find an error or notice something that does not look quite right on the skspeakers Sites, we would appreciate it if you let us know by contacting us.  (Your feedback is a big part of what helps skspeakers to get better at helping you!)

The Sites may make available listings, descriptions, and images of goods and services (collectively, “Products”).  Such Products may be made available by us or by third parties.  We make no representations as to the completeness, accuracy, reliability, validity, or timeliness of such listings, descriptions, or images (including any features, specifications, and prices contained on the Sites).  Such information and the availability of any Product are subject to change at any time without notice.

We have made efforts to accurately display the attributes of Products, including the applicable colors.  However, as the actual colors you see will depend on your monitor, we cannot guarantee that your monitor’s display of any color will accurately reflect actual product color or finish.  In addition, certain weights, measures, and similar descriptions are approximate and are for convenience only.

skspeakers is not responsible for, and cannot guarantee the performance of, goods and services provided by third parties, including any skspeakers Entity, Marketplace Retailer (as defined below in Section 16.A), our advertisers, or other third parties to whose sites we link.  While our goal is to provide accurate information, product packaging and material may contain more and/or different information than that provided on skspeakers Sites, including the product description, country of origin, nutrition, ingredient, allergen, and other information.  Always read labels, warnings, directions, and other information provided with the product before using or consuming the product.  For additional information about a product, please contact the manufacturer.  If you find a product is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition (excluding products that are not eligible for return), in accordance with skspeakers’s return policy.  It is your responsibility to ascertain and obey all applicable local, state, federal, and foreign laws (including minimum age requirements) regarding the purchase, possession, and use of any Product.

8. Placing an Order

A. Order Acceptance and Billing

You represent and warrant that you have the right to use any credit card or other means of payment that you provide to us.  All billing information you provide to us must be truthful and accurate.  Providing any untruthful or inaccurate information is a breach of these Terms of Use and may result in cancellation of your order.  Prior to accepting an order we may also request additional information from you.  Verification of information may be required prior to the acknowledgment or completion of any purchase.  We reserve the right to refuse or cancel an order for any reason including limitations on quantities available for purchase, inaccuracies, or errors in product or pricing information, or problems identified by our credit and fraud avoidance department.  If your order is canceled after your credit card (or other payment account) has been charged, we will issue a credit to your credit card (or other applicable payment account) in the amount of the charge.  We will attempt to contact you if all or any portion of your order is canceled or if additional information is required to accept your order.  skspeakers may request a pre-authorization for some orders placed online with a credit or debit card.  This pre-authorization will not be billed to you; however, your card issuer may hold this amount for a short period.  Your card issuer determines the length of time the pre-authorization is held.  We do this to ensure that the card details are still valid and that you have sufficient funds to complete the transaction.

By confirming your purchase at the end of the checkout process, you agree to accept and pay for the Products, as well as all shipping and handling charges and applicable taxes.

skspeakers reserves the right, including without prior notice, to limit the quantity of items purchased per person, per household, or per order for any reason. We will attempt to notify you should such limits be applied.  skspeakers also reserves the right, at our sole discretion, to prohibit sales to dealers or resellers.  For purposes of these Terms of Use, “reselling” will be defined as purchasing or intending to purchase any Product(s) from skspeakers for the purpose of engaging in a commercial sale of the same Product(s) to a third party.

B. Pricing Information; Availability

skspeakers cannot confirm the price or availability of an item until after your order is placed.  Pricing or availability errors may occur on the skspeakers Sites or through Marketplace Retailers.  The receipt of an order confirmation does not constitute our acceptance of an order or our confirmation of an offer to sell a Product.  skspeakers reserves the right to cancel any orders containing pricing or availability errors, with no further obligations to you, even after your receipt of an order confirmation or shipping notice from skspeakers.  skspeakers may, at its discretion, either contact you for instructions or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.

C. Promotional Codes

Promotional codes are limited in nature and may expire or be discontinued with or without notice.  Promotional codes are void where prohibited by law.  Promotional codes may not be copied, sold, or otherwise transferred.  They are not redeemable for cash and are subject to cancellation or change at any time for any reason without notice.  We reserve the right in our discretion to impose conditions on the offering of any promotional code.

9. Shipping and Delivery

Products will be shipped to an address designated by you, if applicable, so long as such address is complete and complies with the shipping restrictions contained on the skspeakers Sites.  All transactions are made pursuant to a shipping contract, and, as a result, risk of loss and title for Products pass to you upon delivery of the Products to the carrier.
