DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY:
The Site is provided on an "AS IS," "as available" basis. Neither HOTBOX, nor its Associates warrant that use of the Site will be uninterrupted or error-free. Neither HOTBOX, nor its Associates warrant the accuracy, integrity, or completeness of the Content provided on the Site or the products or services offered for sale on the Site. Further, HOTBOX makes no representation that Content provided on the Site is applicable or appropriate for use in locations outside of the United States. HOTBOX specifically disclaims warranties of any kind, whether expressed or implied, including but not limited to warranties of title, implied warranties of merchantability or warranties of fitness for a particular purpose. No oral advice or written information given by HOTBOX or its Associates shall create a warranty. You expressly agree that your access to, viewing of, browsing, visiting or use of the Site is at your sole risk.
Under no circumstances shall HOTBOX or its Associates be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, or consequential damages that result from the use of or inability to use the Site, including but not limited to reliance by a user on any information obtained at the Site, or that result from mistakes, omissions, interruptions, deletion of files or e-mail, errors, defects, viruses, delays in operation or transmission, or any failure of performance, whether or not resulting from acts of God, communications failure, theft, destruction or unauthorized access to HOTBOX records, programs or services. The foregoing limitation of liability shall apply whether in an action at law, including but not limited to contract, negligence, or other tortious action; or an action in equity, even if an authorized representative of HOTBOX has been advised of or should have knowledge of the possibility of such damages. You hereby acknowledge that this paragraph shall apply to all Content, merchandise and services available through the Site. Because some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states liability is limited to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Although we take steps to ensure the accuracy and completeness of product and third-party service descriptions posted on the Site, please refer to the manufacturer or Associates for details.
The products on our Site are intended for personal, not commercial or business use, unless otherwise indicated. As such, you assume the risk when purchasing products for a commercial or business use or application.
You agree to use the Site only for lawful purposes. You are prohibited from posting on or transmitting through the Site any unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, sexually explicit, profane, hateful, racial, ethnic, or otherwise objectionable material of any kind, including but not limited to any material that is or that encourages fraudulent activity or encourages conduct that would constitute a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any applicable local, state, federal, or international law. If we are notified of or suspect allegedly infringing, defamatory, damaging, illegal, or offensive Content provided by you (e.g., through an author chat or online review), we may (but without any obligation) investigate the allegation and determine in our sole discretion whether to remove or request the removal of such Content from the Site. We may disclose any Content or electronic communication of any kind (i) to satisfy any law, regulation, or government request; (ii) if such disclosure is necessary or appropriate to operate the Site; or (iii) to protect the rights or property of HOTBOX, its Associates, our users and customers and/or you.
We reserve the right to prohibit conduct, communication, or Content that we deem in our sole discretion to be unlawful or harmful to you, the Site, Site users, our customers or any rights of HOTBOX or any third party.

Accordingly, neither HOTBOX, nor its Associates assume any liability for any action or inaction with respect to conduct, communication, or Content on the Site.
TERMINATION OF USAGE:
We may terminate your access or suspend your right to access to all or part of the Site, without notice, for any conduct that we, in our sole discretion, believe is in violation of any applicable law, is in breach of these Terms and Conditions or is harmful to the interests of other users, Associates, or us. In addition, we reserve the right to refuse an order from any customer in our sole discretion.
USAGE BY MINORS:
This Site is not intended for or directed to persons who are minors (typically persons under the age of 21, depending on where you live). Because we cannot prohibit minors from accessing, viewing, browsing, visiting or using the Site, we must rely on parents, guardians and those responsible for supervising minors to decide which materials are appropriate for minors to view and/or purchase. By registering with this Site, purchasing products from us or providing us with any information, you represent to us that you are legally permitted to enter into a binding contract (21 years of age or older in most jurisdictions) and that any information you provide to us is not inaccurate, deceptive or misleading.
We require that all purchases be made by individuals who are not minors and who can legally enter into binding contracts (typically persons 21 years of age or older, depending on where you live.)
TOBACCO AND NICOTINE PRODUCT SALES TO MINORS:
We will not sell tobacco or nicotine related products to anyone who is not of legal age to purchase and use tobacco or nicotine products under applicable law. We cannot be held responsible for minors purchasing tobacco or nicotine related products with a parent or guardian’s credit card. By placing your order for tobacco or a nicotine related product you are confirming that you are of legal age to purchase and use tobacco and nicotine products in the state, country or territory where you are based. We may restrict the purchase of tobacco or nicotine related products in your area.
If you access the Site from anywhere in the United States or Canada, you agree that the laws of the State of Missouri, USA, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms and Conditions and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and HOTBOX and/or its Associates. If you access the Site from anywhere other than the United States or Canada, you agree that United States of America law will govern these Terms and Conditions and the purchase of products by you through the Site and that any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and HOTBOX or its affiliates and subsidiaries shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the United States of America.
SITE POLICIES, MODIFICATION & SEVERABILITY:
HOW TO PLACE AN ORDER THROUGH OUR SITE:
After placing an order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received your order (“Order Confirmation”). Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an email confirming the shipment of your order (the “Shipping Confirmation”). A contract with us will only be formed when we send you the Shipping Confirmation. The contract will relate only to those products whose shipment we have confirmed in the Shipping Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other products which may have been part of your order in a separate Order Confirmation. We reserve the right to cancel your order at any time before we have accepted it and we may rescind our acceptance and cancel your order where there has been an obvious error in price or where the product is no longer in our inventory.
PRICING AND AVAILABILITY OF PRODUCTS:
Prices and availability of products on the Site are subject to change without notice. Errors will be corrected when discovered. Our Site contains a large number of products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products listed on our Site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If a product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our Site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection. We are under no obligation to provide the product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you an Order Confirmation or a Shipping Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognized by you as a pricing error.
On occasion, you may be able to place a product in your shopping cart and submit your order for processing, but your order is subsequently cancelled due to unavailability of product. You acknowledge that products may sell quickly and there may be a short period of time after an order has been submitted, but where the product is no longer available. You agree that we may cancel your order after you have received an Order Confirmation without penalty.
On very rare occasions, you may receive a Shipping Confirmation from us, but the product is no longer available in our inventory. You agree that we may rescind our acceptance and cancel your order without penalty if we are unable to ship the product you ordered due to unavailability.
The term shipping or ship includes the commencement of shipping items in an order for multiple purchases or where the item purchased consists of components that must be shipped separately. For example, your order may consist of (1) several different items, (2) a quantity of the same item, or, (3) a single item with several component parts the size of which might require them to be shipped in separate packages. In all such orders, we endeavor to ship out individual packages together so that they arrive at the same time; however, when that is not possible, we commence by shipping individual packages in the order they are available and conditions permit. In these instances, our notification to you that your order has “shipped”, marks the time when shipping has commenced; it does not mean that all items in the order have shipped at that time. You agree that credit cards and debit cards are to be charged on the date of inventory reservation for the order, not the date of shipping.
RISK OF LOSS:
All items purchased from HOTBOX are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon tender of the item to the carrier.
Pricing of products available for purchase by non-U.S. customers may vary by country and from our prices for our U.S. customers, owing to the inclusion of all or a portion of shipping, taxes, duties and imports factored into the price of the product.
DISTANCE SELLING REGULATIONS:
If you are contracting as a consumer, you may cancel an order that we have accepted at any time within seven working days, beginning on the day after you received the products. In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the products. Please note you must return the product to us and must pay the cost of returning the product to us under the policy, unless the product(s) are not those you ordered, in which case we will bear your costs of returning the product(s) in question to us.
You will not have the right to cancel an order under these provisions for audio or video recordings or computer software where you (or someone else following delivery to the delivery address you provide) have or has unsealed the package [or, where the product is provided in electronic format, where you or (or someone else following delivery as requested by you) has downloaded the content].
To cancel an order, you must inform us by email, live chat or support ticket. You must also return the product(s) to us immediately, in the same condition in which you received them, and at your own cost and risk. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the products while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right of action against you for compensation.
DISCLAIMERS OF WARRANTY & LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY:
To all international customers only, we warrant to you that, where you buy a product as a consumer, any product purchased from us through our Site is of satisfactory quality and reasonably fit for all the purposes for which products of the kind are commonly supplied and will conform with description or sample.
Our liability for losses any international customer suffers as a result of us breaking these Terms and Conditions or anything else we do or do not do in connection with any order is strictly limited to the purchase price of the product you purchased and any losses which are a foreseeable consequence of us breaking the agreement. Losses are foreseeable where they could reasonably be contemplated by the parties at the time your order is accepted by us.
We are not responsible for indirect losses which happen as a side effect of the main loss or damage and which are not foreseeable, including but not limited to:
(a) Loss of income or revenue;
(b) Loss of business;
(c) Loss of profits or contracts;
(d) Loss of anticipated savings;
(e) Loss of data; or
(f) Waste of management or office time however arising and whether caused by tort (including negligence), breach of contract or otherwise.
This does not in any way limit or exclude any liability of us (a) under section 2(3) of the Consumer Protection Act 1987, (b) for breach of any condition as to title or quiet enjoyment implied by section 12 Sale of Goods Act 1979 or section 2 Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982; (c) for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or (d) for fraudulent misrepresentation. Other than the warranties and other assurances we give you in these Terms and Conditions, HOTBOX specifically disclaims all warranties, conditions and other terms of any kind, whether expressed or implied, including but not limited to implied terms of satisfactory quality or fitness for purpose. No oral advice or written information given by HOTBOX shall create a warranty (unless made fraudulently).
