Terms of Service
Purpose of the Site
The purpose of the Site is to provide you with information about CultureTalk and our products. In addition, you may be able to purchase products through the Site.
Product and Service Availability
Reference to any product or service on the Site does not constitute an offer to sell or supply that product or service and does not mean that the product or service is available.
PRICES AND AVAILABILITY OF THE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES LISTED ON THE SITE ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE. The listing, description of, or reference to, a product or service on the Site does not imply that the product or service is presently available. In the event a product or service is listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical error, error in pricing information received from a supplier, or any other reason, we shall have the right to refuse or cancel any order placed for such product or service at the incorrect price, even if the order has been confirmed and/or your credit card has been charged. If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is canceled, we shall promptly issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the incorrect price.
Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline your order for any reason or for no reason at all. We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order, without prior notice to you, to supply less than the quantity you ordered of any product or service.
Shipping within the United States is via USPS Priority Mail. Shipping outside the U.S. is determined based on location and is billed separately from order.
You are responsible for any payments due for any products or services ordered through your account. If we do not receive payment from your credit issuer or its agents, you agree to pay all amounts due to us. You shall also be responsible for any costs of collection of overdue payment.
We are required by law to charge applicable sales tax on products shipped to those jurisdictions that charge such a tax and in areas where we operate (New York, United States).
