TERMS AND CONDITIONS
1. Payment.

If the COMPANY does not receive a dispute within the allowable thirty (30) business days, the disputed item shall be deemed invalid as time barred.
2. Limitation of Liability. To the extent permitted by law, in no event shall COMPANY, its affiliates or licensors or any third parties mentioned at the COMPANY website be liable for any incidental, indirect, exemplary, punitive and consequential damages, lost profits, or damages resulting from lost data or business interruption resulting from the use of or inability to use the COMPANY website or COMPANY systems, services, content or information, whether based on warranty, contract, tort, or any other legal theory, and whether or not COMPANY is advised of the possibility of such damages. Without limiting the foregoing, to the extent permitted by applicable law, CUSTOMER agrees that in no event shall COMPANY'S total liability for any damages (direct or otherwise) or loss regardless of the form of action or claim, whether in contract, tort or otherwise, exceed $100.00.

CUSTOMER hereby irrevocably consents and submits themselves to the personal jurisdiction of said courts for all such purposes.
4. Rates. Air Freight rates are based on the greater of actual or dimensional weight. If an air freight shipment contains oversized freight, additional charges and transit days may apply.
5. Miscellaneous. Except if packing is performed by Carrier, CUSTOMER warrants the cargo is packed to withstand the ordinary rigors of the contemplated carriage. In tendering the cargo to Carrier, CUSTOMER warrants the cargo and all parties having any interest in the cargo are fully compliant with all rules and regulations of this contract as well as government regulations applicable for the contemplated carriage. CUSTOMER is responsible for sufficiency and accuracy of accompanying documents. Without any obligation, Carrier shall have the unrestricted liberty to inspect the packaging and contents of the cargo for any purpose and to inquire and verify the accuracy or sufficiency of information provided and to seek assurances.

6. Shipment Insurance. COMPANY will insure all shipment and packages up to $100.00 of the actual cash value with respect to loss of or physical damage to the shipment.

In the event CUSTOMER fails to or declines to secure additional insurance at its own cost, CUSTOMER assumes all risks of loss or damage incurred above or beyond $100.00. Shipment insurance does not cover indirect loss or damage, or loss or damage caused by delays.
7. Notice of Claim. CUSTOMER must submit a claim for loss and/or damage to COMPANY, in writing, within thirty (30) calendar days from the date the loss and/or damage is discovered, or reasonably should have been discovered by CUSTOMER. Failure to submit a claim to COMPANY within the thirty (30) day period shall constitute a waiver of any such claim and/or potential coverage for any such loss and/or damage.
