TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE

IF GATHERING reserves the right to modify, suspend, or discontinue the sale at any time of any Product or Service with or without notice. If a Product or Service is listed with an incorrect price or incorrect information due to typographical error or errors from our suppliers, we have the right, prior to the acceptance of your order (as described below), to decline or cancel any such orders, whether or not the order has been confirmed and/or your credit card charged. If your credit card has already been charged for the order and we cancel your order, we shall immediately issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the charge.
When you make an order, your order is not accepted until we send you shipping information for the order (or the accepted portion). We may require additional information or verification before accepting any order. An order confirmation from us 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 or cancel your order (in whole or in part) for any reason. This may occur because of limited stock or issues with supply. If we cancel all or a part of your order, we will either 1) issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount charged for the cancelled portion (if your credit card has already been charged for the order) or 2) will not charge your credit card for the cancelled portion of the order.

You are responsible for the cost of shipping the returned Product.
IF GATHERING offers a curated assortment of Products for you to purchases. As such, we may not have specific Products in store if you need to exchange a Product and as a result, we cannot guarantee we can accept an exchange.

DISCLAIMERS, LIMITATIONS, AND EXCLUSIONS OF LIABILITY
The Site, Services, all information, Content, materials and services related to the foregoing, and the products are provided “as is” and “as available” and to the fullest extent permissible under applicable law, we and our affiliates disclaim all warranties, express or implied, including but not limited to any warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, non-infringement, non-interference, system integration, and accuracy of data. Applicable law may not allow the exclusion of certain implied warranties, so the above exclusion may not apply to you. We and our affiliates do not warrant that your use of the Site or Service will be uninterrupted, error-free, or virus free. We are not the provider of and make no warranties with respect to any third-party offerings. We do not guarantee the security of any information transmitted to or from the Site or Services; and you agree to assume the security risk for any information you provide using the Site or Services.
No representation or warranty is made that the Site or Services provide comprehensive or accurate information. We reserve the right to filter, alter, or remove content, media, information, or any other material from the Site or Services and from the output of the Site or Services. You understand that we have developed our technologies to find information that we believe will be most relevant and interesting to you. Accordingly, we may in our discretion filter out links to content aggregators. Search engines or other online services whose technologies and services, in our opinion, are inconsistent with these objectives.
Limitation of Liability
Use of our Site or Services, and/or the Products are at your own risk. In no event will we or our affiliates be liable for any indirect, incidental, consequential, or special damages in connection with these Terms, the Service, the Site, or the Products, whether or not such damages were foreseeable and even if we were advised that such damages were likely or possible. In no event will our aggregate liability to you for any and all claims arising in connection with these Terms, the Service, the Site, or the Products exceed the greater of 1) fifty dollars (US $50.00) or 2) the amounts you have paid to the Company in the prior 6 months hereunder.
You acknowledge that this limitation of liability is an essential Term between you and us relating to the provision of the Site or Services, and the Products to you, and we would not provide the Site or Service or Products to you without this limitation.
The limitations or exclusions or warranties and liability contained in these Terms do not affect or prejudice the statutory rights of a consumer, i.e., a person acquiring goods otherwise than in the course of a business. The limitations or exclusions of warranties and remedies contained in these Terms shall apply to customer only to the extent such limitations or exclusions and remedies are permitted under the laws of the jurisdiction where customer is located. If applicable law requires any warranties with respect to the product, all such warranties are limited in duration to ninety (90) days from the date of delivery. Certain states and/or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the exclusions set forth above may not apply to you.
You agree to indemnify, hold harmless and, at our option, defend our Company (including our affiliates, officers, directors, employers, agents, licensors, suppliers, and any third-party information providers) from and against all damages, claims, costs, demands, expenses, and liabilities, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, resulting from any violation of these terms or applicable law.
TERM AND TERMINATION
These Terms will become effective and binding when you use the Site or Service, when you voluntarily provide any information about yourself to us, or when you indicate your agreement by following any instructions we place on the Site (such as buttons labeled “I Agree”) (whichever occurs first). We reserve the right to terminate these Terms, your Account, and your access to the Site and the Service at any time without notice. You may delete your Account at any time, for any reason, by following the instructions on the Site. If we have suspended or terminated these Terms, your Account, the Site, or the Service other than for your breach of these Terms, we will refund you a pro-rata share of any amounts you have pre-paid for a Membership to the Service (if any). Your rights under these Terms will automatically and immediately terminate if you fail to comply with your promises and obligations stated in these Terms.
Copyright © 2020, IF GATHERING. All rights reserved. All Content and Trademarks displayed on the Site or Services are our property or the property of other third parties. Subject to any limited license provided in these Terms, you are not permitted to use these Trademarks or Content without our prior written consent or the consent of such third party that may own the Trademarks or Content.
ARBITRATION NOTICE/DISPUTE RESOLUTION
By using the Site, Services, and Products, you agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the state of Arkansas, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and us.
Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of the Site, Services, or to any Products sold or distributed by IF GATHERING 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 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 as a court would.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent . 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.
IF GATHERING agrees that it will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, we will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the 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.

MODIFICATIONS TO SERVICES
We reserve the right to modify the Site and/or Services at any time without notice. If you object to any changes to the Site or Services, your sole recourse will be to cease using the Site and Service. Continued use of the Site or Services following posting of any such changes will indicate your acknowledgement of such changes and satisfaction with the Services as so modified. We also reserve the right to discontinue the Site and/or Services at any time without notice. We will not be liable to you or any third party should we exercise our right to modify or discontinue the Site or the Services, except as otherwise expressly set forth in these Terms.
If we have suspended or terminated these Terms, your Account, the Site, or the Service other than for your breach of these Terms, we will refund you a pro-rata share of any amounts you have pre-paid for a Membership to the Service (if any). You understand that any termination of your Account involves deletion of your associated User Content from our live databases. Your rights under these Terms will automatically and immediately terminate if you fail to comply with your promises and obligations stated in these Terms
You agree to comply with all laws, rules, and regulations that apply to your use of the Site, the Services, and the Products. Any delay or failure by us to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, you agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the intentions reflected in the invalid provision, and the other provisions of these Terms shall remain in full force and effect. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. The word including means “including without limitation.” These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us with regard to the matters described above. These Terms, and your rights and obligations herein, may not be assigned, subcontracted, delegated, or otherwise transferred by you without IF GATHERING’ prior written consent, and any attempted assignment, subcontract, delegation, or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void.
