If you do not have such authority and authorization, or if you or Your Company do not agree to all of the provisions of these Terms of Use, neither you nor Your Company are permitted to access or use this Site.

            1.3.  Binding Contract.  You acknowledge that these Terms of Use are a legally binding contract between you and Har-Tru, even though it is not physically signed, and you acknowledge that these Terms of Use govern your access to and use of the Har-Tru Website and apply to all Orders you place through this Site. In these Terms of Use, you and Har-Tru are sometimes referred to individually as a “party” and collectively as the “parties”, and “User” (and “user”) refers to a person who accesses or uses the Har-Tru Website.

When we modify these Terms of Use or the Privacy Policy, we will give you notice by posting the amended Terms of Use or Privacy Policy on the Har-Tru Website. The amended Terms of Use and Privacy Policy will include an effective date, and they will be effective on that date. However, any changes to the governing law or dispute resolution provisions set forth in Sections 14 and 15 will not apply to any disputes for which Har-Tru and you have received actual notice on before such Effective Date. If you continue to access or use this Site after the Terms of Use or the Privacy Policy are amended, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to refuse service, to suspend or terminate your Har-Tru Account.

    7.  Orders.  

                7.1.  Product Descriptions.  We attempt to be provide product descriptions that are as accurate as possible. However, we do not warrant that product descriptions or other content on the Har-Tru Website is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a product offered by Har-Tru itself is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition (excluding products that are not eligible for return) pursuant to the terms of our return policy set forth in Section 7.7 below.

                7.2.  Pricing.  Prices and availability are subject to change without notice. We cannot confirm the price of a product until you place your Order. In the event of a pricing error, we may refuse or cancel any Orders placed for that Ordered Product. If the correct price of an Ordered Product sold by Har-Tru is higher than our stated price shown on this Site or in an Order Confirmation, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping or refuse or cancel your Order and notify you of such cancellation.

                7.3.  Payment.  

                            7.3.1.  Payment Information and Processing.  You are responsible for making full and complete payment for all Orders. If you choose to place an Order, you acknowledge and agree that you will provide complete and accurate billing contact and payment information as requested by Har-Tru (your “Payment Information”). You may be required to pay for Orders by credit card or debit card, and you authorize us to charge any credit card(s) or debit card(s) that you include as part of your Payment Information for all payments owed for such Orders. Subject to the Privacy Policy, your Payment Information may be transmitted to and stored by a third party payment processor. We currently use Shopify Inc. (“Shopify”), a third party payment processor, to process payments for Orders. Your Payment Information collected through the Har-Tru Website is transmitted directly to Shopify and is not stored by Har-Tru. You acknowledge and agree that the processing of payments for Orders is subject to the Shopify Terms of Service (https://www.shopify.com/legal/terms) and the Shopify Privacy Policy (https://www.shopify.com/legal/privacy) and that we are not responsible for any acts or omissions of Shopify.

                            7.3.2.  Charge Backs.  In no event are we responsible for any failure to process payment for any Orders. In the event of a charge back by a credit card company, or any similar action by a payment provider or payment processor (a “Charge Back”), you agree that we may suspend or cancel any affected Orders, redirect any shipments associated with such Orders, and/or suspend, close, or terminate your Har-Tru Account. You agree that you will promptly reimburse us for any expenses or fees incurred by us as a result of such Charge Back.

                7.4.  Taxes.  The product prices listed on the Har-Tru Website do not include any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including, for example, value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes, assessable by any jurisdiction whatsoever (collectively, “Taxes”). You are responsible for paying all Taxes associated with your Orders. If Har-Tru has the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which you are responsible under this Section 7.4, we may include such taxes in the Order Total or invoice you separately for that amount unless you provide us with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority, and you will pay such Taxes within thirty (30) days of receipt of the invoice therefor. For clarity, Har-Tru is solely responsible for taxes assessable against it based on its income, property, and employees.

                7.5.  Shipping, Title and Risk of Loss.  The Ordered Products will be shipped within a reasonable period of time, subject to product availability. We may, in our sole discretion, without liability or penalty, make partial shipments to you of the Ordered Products. Orders will be shipped to the address specified by you through the Har-Tru Website when you place your Order. All Ordered Products purchased from Har-Tru are made pursuant to a shipment contract, and the title and risk of loss for such Ordered Products pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier. We will not be liable for any delays, loss, or damage in transit, except to the extent caused by our gross negligence or willful misconduct. You will be responsible for any and all unloading costs and provide any equipment and labor reasonably necessary and suited for receipt of the Ordered Products. If for any reason you fail to accept delivery of any of any Ordered Products, or if we or the carrier are unable to deliver such Ordered Products because you have not provided appropriate instructions, documents, licenses or authorizations: (i) such products shall be deemed to have been delivered; and (ii) we may, at our option, store the Ordered Products until you pick them up, in which case you will be liable for all related costs and expenses (including storage and insurance).

                7.6.  Missing Products or Wrong Quantity.  The quantity of any installment of Ordered Products as recorded by us upon dispatch from our facility is conclusive evidence of the quantity received by you on delivery unless you can provide conclusive evidence proving the contrary. We will not be liable for any non-delivery of Ordered Products unless you give us written notice of the non-delivery within five (5) days of the date when the Ordered Products would have been received in the ordinary course of events. Any liability of Har-Tru for non-delivery of any Ordered Products will be limited to delivering the missing Ordered Products within a reasonable time or refunding that portion of the Order Total that corresponds to the missing Ordered Products. If we delivers to you a quantity of Ordered Products of up to ten percent (10%) more than the quantity set forth in the Order, then you will, at our option, return the surplus pursuant to Section 7.7.2 below or retain and pay for such surplus the price set forth on the Order, adjusted pro rata.

                7.7.  Returns and Refunds.  

                            7.7.1.  You will inspect the Ordered Products within ten (10) days after receipt (the “Inspection Period”). You will be deemed to have accepted the Ordered Products unless you give us written notice of any Nonconforming Products during the Inspection Period and provide such written evidence or other documentation as we may reasonably request. “Nonconforming Products” means only the following: (i) the products shipped are different than identified in your Order; or (ii) the label or packaging for a shipment of Ordered Products incorrectly identifies its contents; or (iii) products shipped materially differ from the description on this Site for such Ordered Products. If you timely notify us of any Nonconforming Products, we will, in our sole discretion, (i) replace such Nonconforming Products with conforming products, or (ii) credit or refund the portion of your Order Total that applies to such Nonconforming Products, together with any reasonable shipping and handling expenses paid by you in connection with the shipment of such Nonconforming Products. If no other return address is provided by us, you will ship, at your expense and risk of loss, the Nonconforming Products to our facility identified in the Order Confirmation. If we exercise our option to replace Nonconforming Products, we will, after receiving your shipment of Nonconforming Products, ship the replaced products to you at the address to which the Nonconforming Products were previously shipped to you, which will be at your expense and risk of loss. You acknowledge and agree that the remedies set forth in this Section 7.7.1 are your exclusive remedies for the delivery of Nonconforming Products.

                            7.7.2.   Except as provided under Section 7.7.1 above, all sales of Ordered Products are made on a one-way basis and you have no right to return Ordered Products without our express, prior written authorization. Any such discretionary returns that may be authorized by us are subject to a ten percent (10%) restocking fee and, for Orders paid by credit card, we will deduct a 2.4% credit card processing fee from any total approved refund amount. If you return Ordered Products (i) that you are not entitled to return, (ii) that are not in their original condition, (iii) that are without proper or missing packaging, (iv) with items missing from the return delivery, or (v) without following our return instructions, or if you have otherwise failed to exercise reasonable care when taking care of and returning Ordered Products, we reserve the right either to reject the return and decline to refund or to deduct from those payments to be refunded to you reasonable repair or other similar direct costs that we have incurred.

                7.8.  Order Cancellations.  All sales are final and you may not cancel any Orders. We reserve the right to cancel any Order, in whole or in part, at any time and for any reason, including without limitation for pricing errors, items that are out of stock or unavailable, or your violation of any provision of these Terms of Use (including the Privacy Policy). If we cancel any of your Orders, in whole or in part, we will issue you a full refund for all payments received by us for the portions of the Order cancelled by us, which will be your sole and exclusive remedy in the event of such cancellation.

    8.  Limited Product Warranties.  

                8.1.  Except as otherwise set forth on Har-Tru’s product warranties page located at https://hartru.com/pages/terms-and-conditions (the “Limited Warranty Statements”), Har-Tru warrants that, for a period of twelve (12) months from the date an Order is shipped, the products included in such shipment will materially conform to the specifications set forth in Har-Tru’s published specifications in effect as of the date of manufacture and will be free from material defects in material and workmanship.

Third Party Products are not covered by the warranties in Section 8.1 above. For the avoidance of doubt, WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES WITH RESPECT TO ANY THIRD PARTY PRODUCT, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY (1) WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY; (2) WARRANTY OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE; (3) WARRANTY OF TITLE; OR (4) WARRANTY AGAINST INFRINGEMENT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OF A THIRD PARTY; WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED BY LAW, COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, USAGE OF TRADE OR OTHERWISE.

                8.3.  We will not be liable for a breach of the warranties set forth in Section 8.1 above unless: (i) you give us written notice of the defect, described in reasonable detail, within ten (10) days of the time when you discover or reasonably should have discovered the defect; (ii) we are given a reasonable opportunity after receiving such notice to examine such products and, if requested by us, you  return such products to us at our cost; and (iii) we reasonably verify your claim that the products are defective.

                8.4.  We will not be liable for a breach of the warranties set forth in Section 8.1 above if: (i) you (or anyone else) makes any further use of such products after giving such notice; (ii) the defect arises because you failed to follow our oral or written instructions as to the storage, installation, commissioning, use, or maintenance of the products; or (iii) you alter or repair such products without our prior written consent.

                8.5.  Subject to Sections 8.3 and 8.4 above, with respect to any such products during the Warranty Period, we will, in our sole discretion, either: (i) repair or replace such products (or the defective part) or (ii) credit or refund the price of such products at the pro rata purchase price, provided that, if we so request, you will, at our expense, return such products to us.

                8.6.  THE REMEDIES SET FORTH IN SECTION 8.5 ARE YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY AND OUR ENTIRE LIABILITY FOR ANY BREACH OF THE LIMITED WARRANTIES SET FORTH IN Section 8.1 above.

If you are reporting a claim of trademark infringement, your written notice must identify the exact trademark, service mark, or other mark (and if the mark is anything other than standard characters, you must include a copy of the mark), a description of the goods or services for which you believe you have trademark rights, the registration number and office of registration (if applicable), and a description of the reason why you believe the User Content (“Alleged Infringing Content”) causes a likelihood of confusion with or dilution of your mark.
    • Identification of the Alleged Infringing Content you believe to be infringing in a sufficiently precise manner to allow us to locate it. Adequate information by which we can contact you (such as your name, mailing address, telephone number, and, if available, an e-mail address).
    • A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the Alleged Infringing Content is not authorized by the owner of the Intellectual Property Rights, the owner’s agent, or the law.
    • A statement that the information in the written notice is accurate.
    • A statement, under penalty of perjury, that you are the authorized owner of the Intellectual Property Rights or that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the Intellectual Property Rights.

    Upon receipt of an Infringement Notice, we may act in any manner that we deem reasonable and appropriate, including without limitation, temporarily or permanently Removing the Alleged Infringing Content described in such Infringement Notice. However, we will generally endeavor to provide a copy of the Infringing Notice to the user who is responsible for the applicable Alleged Infringing Content (the “Responsible Party”) and request that such Responsible Party provide a written response to the party alleging infringement (the “Asserting Party”) or to us, in which case we will forward such response to the Asserting Party, together with the Responsible Party’s contact information (name, address and e-mail address). If the Responsible Party’s response is not satisfactory to the Asserting Party, or the Responsible Party fails to respond within ten (10) business days of the date we forward the Infringement Notice, we may disclose, if known, the name, address, e-mail address, and other contact information of such Responsible Party to the Asserting Party, in which case, such Responsible Party and such Asserting Party shall communicate directly to resolve the matters alleged in such Infringement Notice. Thereafter, but without limiting our rights to take any other action that we deem appropriate or reasonable (including Removing the Alleged Infringing Content), we shall Remove or otherwise act with respect to the Alleged Infringing Content upon a written direction from both the Asserting Party and the Responsible Party or in accordance with Section 10.1 above.

You will not have apparent or actual authority to bind any of the Har-Tru Parties to any debt, contract, or other arrangement. Nothing in these Terms of Use is intended, nor will be deemed, to confer any rights or remedies upon any Person other than the Har-Tru Parties and you.

                21.3.  Further Assurances.  You agree to execute, acknowledge, and deliver all such further documents, and take such further action, as may be reasonably required to carry out and consummate the transactions contemplated by these Terms of Use.

                21.4. Severability; Non-Waiver.  If any provision of these Terms of Use is determined to be invalid or unenforceable, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and will not affect the validity or enforceability of any of the remaining provisions of these Terms of Use. No waiver by us, and no failure by us to exercise any of our rights or remedies hereunder, will be deemed to constitute a waiver of such provision, right, or remedy in the future, or of any other provision, right, or remedy hereunder, unless such waiver is set forth in a written instrument signed by an authorized manager or officer of Har-Tru.

                21.5.  No Assignment.  These Terms of Use are personal to you. Neither these Terms of Use nor any of your rights or obligations may be sold, transferred, delegated, or assigned by you without our prior written consent, and any attempt to do so without such consent will be void, and no rights will devolve by operation of law or otherwise upon any assignee, receiver, liquidator, trustee, or other person. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms of Use will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Parties and their respective successors, assigns, and legal representatives.

                21.6.  Headings and General Construction.  The descriptive headings in these Terms of Use are inserted for convenience only and do not constitute a part of these Terms of Use.  Throughout these Terms of Use, unless the context requires otherwise, the use of the singular includes the plural, and vice versa, and the referents of masculine, feminine, and gender neutral pronouns shall not be limited to referents of the specified gender. The words “include”, “includes”, and “including” are not limiting, the word “or” is not exclusive, and the word “herein” refers to these Terms of Use.

                21.7.  Entire Agreement.  These Terms of Use contain the entire agreement and understanding between you and us with respect to (a) your use of the Har-Tru Website, the Har-Tru Materials, the Har-Tru Solutions, and (b) all Orders placed by you through the Har-Tru Website, and these Terms of Use supersede and replace any other prior or contemporaneous agreements, terms, or conditions applicable to the subject matter of these Terms of Use.
