TERMS OF SERVICE
Welcome to the Solomac Shop (“SOLOMAC”) website. These Terms of Service (these “Terms") govern your use of each of the Site and our online stores accessible via the Site. The Site and our services are collectively called the “Services.”
Please read and review these Terms carefully, because by accessing or using the Services, or by clicking to accept or agree to these Terms when this option is presented to you, you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you don’t agree to these Terms, do not use the Services.
Changes to Terms or Services
We reserve the right to update or modify these Terms at any time in our sole discretion. If we do so, we’ll let you know either by posting the modified Terms on the Site or through other communications. It’s important that you review the Terms whenever we modify them because if you continue to use the Services after we have posted modified Terms on the Site, you are indicating to us that you agree to be bound by the modified Terms. If you don’t agree to be bound by the modified Terms, then you may not use the Services anymore. Because the Services are evolving over time, we may change or discontinue all or any part of the Services, at any time and without notice, in our sole discretion.
Who May Use the Services
You may use the Services only if you are 18 years or older, are capable of forming a binding contract with us and are not barred from using the Services under applicable law. By using the Services, you represent and warrant that you are 18 years or older.
Registration and Your Information Account
If you want to use certain features of the Services, including purchasing products online, you’ll have to create an account (“Account”) via the Site and provide your name and email address. Creation of your Account on one of the Site will enable you to use the features available on any and all of the Site.
It’s important that you provide us with accurate, complete and up-to-date information for your Account and you agree to update such information, as needed, to keep it accurate, complete and up-to-date. If you don’t, we may suspend or terminate your Account. You agree not to disclose your Account password to anyone and to notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your Account.

How the Services Work
We make available an online platform that allows you to purchase products, mainly items and accessories (“Products”). Through the Services you will be able to browse our Products and place orders.
We will provide an email or other form of confirmation after receipt of your purchase order. Your receipt of an order confirmation merely confirms our receipt of your order and neither indicates our acceptance of your order nor confirms our offer to sell. We reserve the right to refuse or limit any order you place with us. We may also, in our sole discretion, limit or cancel quantities purchased per person, household or order. These restrictions may include orders placed by or under the same Account, Method of Payment (as defined below), email address, and/or using the same billing and/or shipping address. We also reserve the right to limit or prohibit orders that, in our sole judgment, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers or distributors. In the event we make a change to or cancel an order, we will attempt to notify you by contacting the email address provided at the time the order was made. If we cancel all or any part of your order after your Method of Payment has been charged, we will refund the billed amount.
Shipment Confirmation and Delivery
All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance by sending you an email confirming the Products have been shipped. You may choose the method of shipment and timing of delivery for Products you order if more than one method is available, and you will be charged shipping and handling charges accordingly based on your choice. We will not be held liable for deliveries that are delayed due to events that are beyond our control. However, we will work with you to ensure a smooth delivery.
The prices displayed for Products available for purchase via the Services represent the applicable retail prices, and do not include taxes, shipping or handling charges (to the extent applicable). Any applicable taxes, shipping or handling charges will be communicated to you before you place an order. The prices displayed on the Services are quoted in U.S. dollars. Products in your shopping cart reflect the current price displayed on the Product’s details page. For international orders, please note that this price may differ from the price displayed when the Product was first placed in your shopping cart. Prices and product availability are subject to change without notice. All specials and promotions limited to stock on hand.
By submitting an order through the Services, you agree to pay in advance the price of the Product(s) ordered, plus any applicable taxes, shipping and handling and/or other charges. Payment may be made by credit card or any other method of payment we may make available to you (each, a “Method of Payment”). In order to make a payment, you must provide us with valid credit card and/or other billing information and authorize us (or any third party payment service provider engaged by us) to charge your Method of Payment for all orders placed and accepted via the Services.
Cancellation, Return, and Exchange Policies
Cancellation, return, and exchange policies are available to you via the Services. If a Product is not what you expected it to be, please review such policies to learn how and when you may return a Product purchased via the Services. You agree that any applicable shipping and/or handling charges are non-refundable. Exchanges are not accepted.
Most Products displayed on the Services are available exclusively online through the Services. These Products may have limited quantities and, because of their limited availability, stock will not and cannot be refreshed. When a Product featured on the Services is no longer in stock, we use our best efforts to remove such Product from the Services in a timely manner. Should you have any questions concerning the availability of a particular Product, please contact our SOLOMAC customer service at email@example.com or (424) 835-0150.
Errors, Inaccuracies, and Omissions
We make every effort to present the most recent, accurate, and reliable information on the Services at all times. However, occasionally there may be information on the Services that contains typographical errors, inaccuracies, or omissions that may relate to Product descriptions, pricing, promotions, offers, and availability. Any errors are wholly unintentional and we reserve the right to amend errors or to update Product information at any time without prior notice. In the event a Product is listed at an incorrect price due to photographical error, typographical error, or any other error in pricing information, we reserve the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for any Product listed at the incorrect price. We reserve the right to refuse or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has been confirmed and your Method of Payment charged. If your Method of Payment has already been charged for the purchase and your order is cancelled, we will issue a credit to your Method of Payment in the amount of the incorrect price.
We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colors of Products that appear on the Services. However, because the color display may vary according to the monitor used to view the Services, we cannot guarantee that the color of the Product you see on the Services matches the actual Product color.
Cancellation of Orders
We reserve the right to cancel, modify, or suspend any order placed if we determine in our sole discretion that a user has violated these Terms, including by engaging in any fraudulent or misleading activity (for example, by using false names, multiple identities, multiple email accounts or email addresses, impersonating another person or otherwise providing false or misleading information), or if we believe, in our sole discretion, that a user’s conduct violates applicable law or is harmful to our interests.
Alerts and Notifications
As part of the Services, you may receive notifications, alerts, emails, or other types of messages regarding the Services (for example, order confirmations, shipment confirmations and/or delivery information). We may also periodically send you emails that directly promote the Services and Products (for example, new Product offerings or features we provide, recommendations, special discounts or promotions). When you receive such promotional emails from us you will have the opportunity to “opt-out” by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in the email you receive.
We welcome feedback, comments, and suggestions for improvements to the Services (“Feedback”).

You agree that any dispute arising between you and Solomac Shop will be governed by the arbitration procedure outlined below.
Informal Dispute Resolution
We want to address your concerns without the need to initiate a formal legal case. In the event of a dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, or the use of the Services or Content (collectively, a “Dispute”), you and Solomac Shop agree to try to resolve such Dispute informally by first sending a notice to the other clearly marked “Notice of Dispute” and containing a brief written statement setting forth the name, address, and contact information of the party giving it, the facts giving rise to the Dispute and the relief requested. You must send any such notice to Solomac Shop at email@example.com We will contact you via email at the address specified in any such notice or the address we have on file for your Account. You and Solomac Shop agree to use reasonable, good faith efforts to settle any Dispute through consultation and good faith negotiations within thirty (30) days of submission of such notice. If a Dispute is not resolved within thirty (30) days of such submission, you or Solomac Shop may resort to the other alternatives described in this section.
Agreement to Arbitrate
In the event that any Dispute is unresolved through informal discussions within thirty (30) days as described above, you and Solomac Shop agree to resolve such Dispute through final and binding arbitration, except as set forth under “Exceptions to Agreement” to Arbitrate below.
Opt-out of Agreement to Arbitrate
You can decline this agreement to arbitrate by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org within thirty (30) days of your first use of the Site and stating that you decline this arbitration agreement. If you have an account on the Site, the opt-out notice must include the email address we have on file for that account.
The American Arbitration Association (AAA) will administer the arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. The arbitration will be held in the United States county where you live or work, unless you and Solomac Shop otherwise agree in writing. For residents outside the United States, arbitration shall be held in New York, New York and you agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of any state or federal court in New York, New York.
If your or Solomac Shop claim does not exceed $10,000 and does not include a request for any type of equitable remedy, the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of the documents that you and Solomac Shop submit to the arbitrator, unless the party bringing the claim requests a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your or Solomac Shop’ claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules.
Solomac Shop will pay all filing and arbitration fees for claims of less than $75,000 unless the arbitrator determines that a claim is frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose. You are responsible for any other costs that you may incur in the arbitration, including but not limited to attorney's fees and expert witness costs, unless Solomac Shop is otherwise specifically required to pay such fees under applicable law. For claims that total more than $75,000, the AAA Rules will govern payment of filing fees and arbitration fees. You and Solomac Shop agree not to seek attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration, unless the arbitrator determines that a claim is frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose. The AAA Rules and fee information are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.
Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate
Notwithstanding the foregoing, either you or Solomac Shop may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in California or any United States county where you live or work. Either party may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Services or Content or actual or threatened intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute resolution process described above.
No Class Actions
You agree that you may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff of, or participate as part of, any purported class, consolidated or representative action. Further, unless you and Solomac Shop otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class, consolidated or representative proceeding.
Judicial Forum for Disputes
If any court or arbitrator determines that the class, consolidated or representative action waiver set forth in this section is void or unenforceable for any reason or that arbitration can proceed on a class, consolidated or representative basis, then the Dispute will not be subject to arbitration and, other than small claims actions, must be brought in the appropriate federal or state court in Los Angeles, California. Both you and Solomac Shop consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there. We both agree to waive our right to a jury trial.
Any claim or cause of action you may have with respect to Solomac Shop, these Terms, the Content, the Services or any Products must be commenced within one (1) year after the claim or cause of action arose.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Solomac Shop, govern your use of the Services, and supersede any prior agreements between you and Solomac Shop. You may also be subject to additional terms and conditions that are applicable to certain parts of the Services. You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without Solomac Shop’ prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null. Solomac Shop may freely assign or transfer these Terms without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between Solomac Shop and you as a result of these Terms or your use of the Services.
The failure of Solomac Shop to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. The invalidity of any term, condition or provision in these Terms shall not affect the enforceability of those portions of these Terms deemed enforceable by applicable courts of law.
If you have any questions about these Terms or the Services, please contact us at email@example.com or by mail at Solomac Shop, 137 N. Larchmont Blvd, Suite 446, Los Angeles, CA 90004.
As used in this policy, the terms "using" and "processing" information include using cookies on a computer, subjecting the information to statistical or other analysis and using or handling information in any way, including, but not limited to, collecting, storing, evaluating, modifying, deleting, using, combining, disclosing and transferring information within our company or among our affiliates within the United States or internationally.
Information Collection and Use
Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our Site, services, features and content, to administer your use of the Site and to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate the Site (collectively, the "Service").
Personally Identifiable Information
When you register with us through the Site, when you join our mailing list or when you make a purchase via the Site, we will ask you for personally identifiable information. This refers to information about you that can be used to contact or identify you ("Personal Information"). Personal Information includes, but is not limited to, your name, phone number, email address, and postal address. If you choose to make a purchase via the Site, our third party payment processor service providers may also collect billing information such as your credit card number or billing address. We use the Personal Information you provide mainly to provide the Service, process your transactions and administer your inquiries.
In order to access additional functionality of the Site, you may be required to create an account for your use of the Service ("Account"). You may create an Account directly via the Site or by logging into your account with certain third party social networking sites ("SNS") (including, but not limited to, Facebook and Twitter) via our Service. If you decide to create an Account by logging into an SNS via our Service, we will obtain the Personal Information you have provided to the SNS (such as your "real" name, profile picture, email address and other information you make publicly available via the applicable SNS) from the account you have with such SNS and use that information to create your Account. The information we obtain may depend on the privacy settings you have with the SNS. When you create an Account, you will become a "Member" of the Service.
We also collect the other information that you provide as part of account registration and your use of the Service (e.g., without limitation, zip code (on its own) and individual preferences) ("Non-Identifying Information").
We use your Personal Information (in some cases, in conjunction with your Non-Identifying Information) mainly to provide the Service, complete your transactions, and administer your inquiries.
Certain Non-Identifying Information would be considered a part of your Personal Information if it were combined with other identifiers (for example, combining your zip code with your street address) in a way that enables you to be identified. But the same pieces of information are considered Non-Identifying Information when they are taken alone or combined only with other non-identifying information. We may combine your Personal Information with Non-Identifying Information and aggregate it with information collected from other Solomac Shop Users (defined below) to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the quality and value of the Service and to analyze and understand how our Site and Service are used. We may also use the combined information without aggregating it to serve you specifically, for instance to deliver a product to you according to your preferences or restrictions.
We also use your Personal Information (like your email or postal address) to contact you with marketing and promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you (some of which may be sent by a third party service provider). If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such communications from us, please follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications or if you do not want us to share your Personal Information with these third party service providers, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with "Privacy" as the subject line of the email. (See "Changing or Deleting Your Information," below.)
When you visit the Site, whether as a Solomac Shop Member or a non-registered user just browsing (any of these, a "SOLOMAC User"), our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website ("Log Data"). This Log Data may include information such as your computers Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type or the webpage you were visiting before you came to our Site, pages of our Site that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for on our Site, access times and dates, and other statistics. We use this information to monitor and analyze use of the Site and the Service and for the Site's technical administration, to increase our Site's functionality and user-friendliness, and to better tailor it to our visitors' needs. We also use this information to verify that visitors to the Site meet the criteria required to process their requests.
Cookies and Pixel Tags
We may also use "pixel tags," "web beacons," "clear GIFs" or similar means (individually or collectively "Pixel Tags") in connection with our Service to collect usage, demographic and geographical location data. A Pixel Tag is an electronic image, often a single pixel that is ordinarily not visible to users and may be associated with cookies on a user's hard drive. Pixel Tags allow us to count users who have visited certain pages of the Site, to deliver branded services and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns.
Sending Emails Via the Service
As part of the Service, Members may communicate with third parties through use of their Accounts. When a Member selects the option of adding one or more email addresses to an online form, the message they create in the corresponding template will be sent from Solomac Shop to those email addresses on their behalf. These email addresses will be used only for the purpose of sending the email communication to the addressee.
Identity theft and the practice currently known as "phishing" are of great concern to Solomac Shop. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, your login information, or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication. For more information about phishing, visit the Federal Trade Commission's website.
Information Sharing and Disclosure

Please note that any information you provide on the Blog, including, but not limited to, comments, may be read, collected and used by others who access the Blog. Also, if you choose to comment on any Blog post, the content of such comment, along with your name, email address and website URL will be publicly viewable via the Blog.
SNS. The Service gives you the option to share information contained in your Account with certain social networking services (i.e. Twitter and Facebook). Solomac Shop will not share your Account information, which may contain your Personal Information, with such social networking services unless you expressly authorize such disclosure.
Aggregated Information and Non-Identifying Information. We may share aggregated information that does not include Personal Information and we may otherwise disclose Non-Identifying Information and Log Data with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling, and to deliver targeted advertising about other products and services. Any aggregated information shared in these contexts will not contain your Personal Information.
Service Providers. We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Service, to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform Site-related services (e.g., without limitation, maintenance services, database management, payment processors, web analytics and improvement of the Site's features) or to assist us in analyzing how our Site and Service are used.

Solomac Shop is very concerned with safeguarding your information, but no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number) on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). In some cases, we also encrypt sensitive information where it is stored on our systems.
We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored "personal data" (as defined in applicable state statutes on security breach notification) to you via email or conspicuous posting on this Site in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, insofar as consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.
