Multiple Shipping Locations

At the moment we cannot ship a single order to multiple locations. If you wish to ship products to multiple shipping addresses, multiple orders will have to be submitted. Sorry for the inconvenience.


Any dispute or claim relating in any way to these to the Terms and Conditions, this Website, or any products or services sold or distributed by or through this Website, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to the Terms and Conditions. We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
