12.      Sales Terms and Policies

Please review these policies carefully as they govern and set out your rights and obligations with respect to your purchases from the Site, including important limitations and exclusions.  By placing an order on this Site you expressly acknowledge and agree that this Agreement applies to your order(s) and that:

· Company reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to refuse or cancel any order, to limit the provision and quantity of any product to any person, entity or geographic area, to terminate your account and/or to require additional qualifying information prior to accepting or processing any order.

· Your order cannot be changed, modified, or canceled once your order is in processing.

· Company will send you an order confirmation via email, which will include the price of the product(s) and the estimated shipping charges.  Your final invoice will be adjusted to reflect actual shipping costs.

· All sales are governed by Ohio law and therefore, applicable sales tax will be added to all orders placed by customers residing in Ohio.

· If your order does not meet the minimum requirement of $15.00 of merchandise (excluding all shipping costs) then an up charge will be added to your order to meet the minimal charge.

· You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for all activities/purchases occurring under your account or password.

Payment Methods – You can pay for your purchase by credit (American Express, Discover, MasterCard, and Visa), debit, or check card associated with a billing address within the United States and most United States territories.  Company requires the credit, debit, or check card security code for all orders to protect against the unauthorized use of your credit card by other persons.  Company does not begin payment processing until Company receives all of the required information and full payment or a full authorization in the case of credit card.  Company will begin payment processing for orders placed on weekends or holidays on the next business day.  If you wish to pay by cashier's check or money order, you must place your order by phone at (440) 205-8388. The cashier's check or money order must be payable to Electronic Surplus and mailed to 8755 Munson Road #6, Mentor, Ohio 44060, along with your order confirmation.  Company must receive your payment within 10 calendar days or your order will be cancelled.  Please allow one business day for order processing after Company receives your payment.

Domestic Shipping -- The estimated shipment date on your order is based on product availability, payment processing time, and warehouse processing time and does not include transit time.  Company strives to ship all orders the same business day they are received, but that is not guaranteed.  Orders processed after 12:30 p.m. EST or on weekends will not ship until the following business day.  If an item is not in stock you will be notified of the product's status within 1 Business Day.  Shipping Options are: Ground shipping which is usually delivered within 2-5 business days after shipment; 2-Day shipping and Next Business Day shipping.  UPS is our preferred domestic carrier, but Federal Express and USPS may also be used upon customer’s request.  Delivery of your order is beyond Company’s control once it leaves our facility and therefore, Company does not assume liability for late deliveries, regardless of the delivery method you specify.  Risk of loss and title for all products will pass to you upon our deposit of the product to the shipping carrier.   Contact the Company for rates, restrictions, costs, and arrangements for all other shipments.  In the case of an international shipment, please contact the Company to determine if that is possible and to obtain the applicable shipping and handling charges and other applicable taxes and fees.  

Returns and Refunds -- If a product offered by Company is not as described, your sole remedy is to return the product in unused condition.  All product returns must be authorized by the Company within fifteen (15) calendar days of the invoice date.  You must return the product to the Company within fourteen (14) calendar days of the issuance of the RMA from the Company.  All products must be packed in the original packaging including any accessories, manuals, documentation, and registration that shipped with the product.  You will be responsible for any loss or damage to the product during return shipping and the cost of freight.  Company will assess a 15% restocking fee on any returned product.  This fee will not apply to products returned for exchange or replacement.  All refunds will be based on your original method of payment.  Shipping fees are not refundable.  All authorized defective returns which are timely returned will be replaced or repaired, at Company’s sole discretion.  Products purchased under specific government or education contracts and or regulations may be subject to different return policies. 

Dead On Arrival (DOA) Products -- A product is considered Dead on Arrival (DOA) if it shows symptoms of a hardware failure, preventing basic operability, when you first use it after opening the box. If you believe that your product is DOA, please call us within fifteen (15) calendar days of the invoice date.  Upon its return, Company will determine whether the product is DOA and will, in its sole discretion, replace the defective product or refund the purchase price.   If Company determines that a returned product is not DOA or determines that you have misrepresented a returned product’s condition, then Company may impose a 15% restocking fee.

Questions or Assistance -- For questions, assistance or order status information please contact us by phone at (440) 205-8388 Monday - Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST.  Please contact the manufacturer directly if you have any questions or issues related to the product’s manufacturer’s warranty (if any), technical support and customer service.

13.      Miscellaneous.  This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and Company and governs your use of the Site, superseding any prior agreements between you and Company.  If any part of this Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed in a manner consistent with applicable law to reflect, as nearly as possible, the original intentions of the parties, and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect.  Company's failure to enforce any right or provisions in this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of such provision, or any other provision of this Agreement.  Company will not be responsible for failures to fulfill any obligations due to causes beyond its control. No Company employee or agent has the authority to vary this Agreement or any other Company policies, in whole or in part.  This Agreement will inure to the benefit of Company's successors and assigns.  Except as set forth herein, this Agreement shall not benefit or create any right or cause of action in or on behalf of any third party.  This Agreement may not be assigned by you without the prior written consent of Company.

14.      Governing Law.  All disputes, claims or controversies arising out of this Agreement, or the validity or performance of this Agreement (collectively referred to as the "Litigation") shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Ohio without regard to any conflict of laws principles. You and Company hereby: (a) irrevocably and unconditionally consent to submit to the sole and exclusive jurisdiction of the federal or state courts located in Cuyahoga County, Ohio for the Litigation, (b) waive any objection to such venue/jurisdiction, and (c) agree not to plead or claim that the Litigation has been brought in any inconvenient forum or that there are indispensable parties to the Litigation that are not subject to such venue/jurisdiction.  Nothing herein will prohibit the parties from settling their disputes in any forum as they may mutually agree, including binding or non-binding mediation or arbitration.

15.      Notices.  Any notices to be given to Company pursuant to this Agreement may be given by U.S. mail to Electronic Surplus, 8755 Munson Road #6, Mentor, Ohio 44060.  Any notices to be given to you pursuant to this Agreement will be sent to the email address you provide to Company and will be deemed given 24 hours after the email is sent, unless we are notified that the email address is invalid.  Alternatively, we may give you notice by certified mail, postage prepaid, to the address you provide to Company, if an address was supplied.  In such case, notice shall be deemed given 3 days after the date of mailing.
