14. Typographical Errors
In the event a product is listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect information due to typographical error or error in pricing or product information received from our suppliers, we shall have the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for products listed at the incorrect price. We shall have the right to refuse or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit card charged. If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is canceled, we shall immediately issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the charge.

 

15. Links to Other Website
Our site does contain links to other websites and online resources that are not owned or controlled by Bootniks. Bootniks has no control over, and therefore cannot assume responsibility for, the content or general practices of any of these third party sites and/or services. Therefore, we strongly advise you to read the entire terms and conditions and privacy policy of any site that you visit as a result of following a link that is posted on our site.

 

16. Governing Law
By using the Site, you agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal laws and the laws of Florida, United States, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms of Use and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and us.

 

17. Disputes
Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of the Site, or to any products sold or distributed by us will be resolved by binding arbitration before a single arbitrator, rather than in court. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.

 

There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Terms of Use as a court would.

 

To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent, Legal Department, at 611 Druid Road E., Suite #703, Clearwater, FL 33756. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the state/county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.

 

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.

 

18. Changes to This Agreement
Bootniks reserves the right to modify these Terms of Use at any time. We do so by posting and drawing attention to the updated terms on the Site. Therefore, we ask that you check and review this Agreement for such changes on an occasional basis. Should you not agree to any provision of this Agreement or any changes we make to this Agreement, we ask and advise that you do not use or continue to access the Site immediately.

 

20. Severability
If any these provisions shall be deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that condition shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provision.
