General Terms of Business

Confidentiality and Privacy Statement: Herbie's Audio Lab (hereafter referred to also as "Merchant") will not disclose Cardholder information to third parties, other than Bank's or Merchant's agents for the purposes of assisting the Merchant in completing a Card transaction or as specifically required by law. In the event that Merchant's business fails or otherwise ceases to process, any database containing Cardholder's personal information, Card numbers, or other transaction information cannot be considered an asset of the business and subsequently sold or disclosed to a third party. Merchant will immediately notify Bank if a loss of transaction information is experienced or otherwise suspects that the information may have been compromised and to assist Bank with investigation of the loss.

The above conditions apply also to e-mail addresses, which will not be made available to any third party.

Online Security: All credit card transactions are processed through a secure SSL gateway. Credit card records processed through the Shopping Cart via PayPal are purged when an order is processed (upon checkout), so that no credit card information remains on file.

Shipping Costs: Default Shopping Cart shipping costs may be adjusted to reflect actual shipping costs.

90-day Trial Period: Any Merchant's products returned to Merchant, postage paid, within 90 days of the purchase date will receive a complete refund of the purchase price, including any original taxes, excluding shipping charges or any shipping costs incurred by Merchant, with the exception of any product that has been deliberately altered, cut, or mutilated, and one-of-a-kind special orders made to customer's specifications. Products purchased with a credit card will have a credit refunded to the purchaser's credit card account. If the purchaser's credit card account is no longer active, the refund will be mailed to the purchaser with a business check drawn from the Merchant's business checking account. Returns of products originally purchased via PayPal accounts will be refunded back to the purchaser's PayPal account with no transaction fee deducted. After the 90-day trial period, at Merchant's discretion, Merchant may accept returns for partial refund or for credit toward new purchases. Any product that has been deliberately altered, cut, or mutilated will be denied any refund consideration unless okayed by Merchant in advance.

Unconditional Lifetime Warranty: All Merchant's products are sold with an unconditional lifetime warranty. If any product fails to perform satisfactorily, it may be returned to Merchant, postage paid. Merchant will repair or replace the product and return it to the customer, postage paid. No proof of original purchase is required. If product cannot be repaired and is no longer available, original purchase price credit will be given towards purchase of any other product available from Herbie's Audio Lab.

Coupons: Except by special arrangement with the Merchant, only one Shopping Cart Coupon may be used per order.

Exchange/Upgrade: During first 90 days after purchase, returned items will have 100% of original value towards exchange or upgrade (except any product that has been deliberately altered, cut, or mutilated). After 90-day trial period, exchanged or returned items may receive partial credit value, at Merchant's discretion, towards purchase of other Herbie's Audio Lab products.

Trial Substitution: Herbie's Audio Lab may send substitute products at no cost for trial if original product does not perform satisfactorily. If the original product is returned for a refund and the substitute product kept, Merchant may charge the customer full price for the substitute product against the original purchase refund.

Quantity Discount Partial Returns: For discount purchases based on quantity, Merchant may deduct the discount amount from refund of partial product returns if the remainder (kept portion) of the order no longer qualifies for the original conditions of quantity discount.

E-Mail List: All client e-mails are confidential and will not be traded, sold, or available to any third party in any manner. Herbie's Audio Lab may from time to time send a Newsletter, Holiday greetings, or other e-mail only to our client list. A "client" is any person who has purchased a product from Herbie's Audio Lab or who has opted-in to our newsletter/e-mail list. Sending an e-mail or mailform inquiry or comment does not establish "client" status or inclusion to a mailing list. A client may request at any time to opt-out of our e-mail list. All mailings sent from our client e-mail list contain an easy opt-out link.
