5. THE PRODUCTS; SHIPPING; RETURN POLICY
Product Availability and Pricing
All products that we sell through the Site (the “Products”) are provided by third parties and are not manufactured or supplied by goTenna.
If you are interested in a Product that is currently on back order or is otherwise unavailable, email us at email@example.com, and we can tell you when the Product will be back in stock. Sometimes with the volume of orders we receive, a Product may go out of stock before we are able to post a notification on the Site. If this happens after you purchased that Product, we will contact you directly to discuss possible options.
Product prices may be inaccurately displayed on the Site due to system or typographical errors. While we make every attempt to avoid these errors, they may occur. We reserve the right to correct any and all errors when they do occur, and we do not honor inaccurate or erroneous prices. If you purchase a Product with a listed price that is lower than its actual price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you to notify you of the correct price before shipping the Product or cancel the order and notify you of such cancellation. If the order has been shipped, you agree to either return the Product or pay the difference between the actual and charged prices. Our prices are also subject to change without notice. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause.
We do not negotiate prices on our Products and all our prices are final.
We make every attempt to ensure that our online catalog is as accurate and complete as possible. To give you the opportunity to view the Products in great detail, some Products may appear larger or smaller than their actual size in our photographs; and since every computer monitor is set differently, color and size may vary slightly.
Our objective is to provide you with as much information and detail about your prospective purchase as possible so that you can get the details of a particular item.
In order to purchase Product(s), you must provide us with valid credit card information. By providing such information, you warrant and represent that (i) the information is valid and accurate, (ii) you are the owner or an authorized user of such credit card, and (iii) you are responsible for any and all charges made using such credit card information.
Products purchased by you will be shipped in accordance with our then current shipping policy. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
You may return Products only in accordance with our then current Return Policy, a current version of which can be viewed here http://gotenna.com/faqs.
