General

ALL SALES ARE FINAL; there are no cancellations, returns or exchanges.

 

 

All Sales Are Final

Mask frames are a one-of-a-kind bespoke item. There are no refunds, exchanges or cancellations except where a rare manufacturing defect occurs. 

If USER has any questions about their transaction, USER should contact support@CTbiotech.com.

 

 

Orders

USER should carefully enter all required information when submitting an order. USER is responsible for any errors made when entering their information, errors may result in issues such as a delay in processing the order or in delivery of products or in cancellation of order. Connecticut Biotech, LLC (“SITE”) reserves the right to have a third party fulfill the actual order. In nearly all cases, the FULFILLER  and SITE will be the same entity. 

 

Credit Card Charges

In some cases, USER’s credit card may be charged by the FULFILLER responsible for fulfilling their order and not SITE. If USER has any questions about charges on USER’s credit card statement, USER should contact SITE at support@ctbiotech.com.

 

Payment by Debit Card

In some cases, FULFILLER may attempt to authorize a debit card multiple times, creating several holds on USER’s account. This often happens when a third-party credit card processing company requires additional security verification such as a CVV, Zip Code, or address, or when USER’S information is incorrectly provided or mistyped. Though the FULFILLER will only clear USER’s transaction once, the hold(s) will temporarily lower USER’s available balance. Any hold(s) may take up to several days to clear.

 

Collecting Payment for Orders

USER agrees that FULFILLER has the right to collect payment for any order if FULFILLER has shipped the items purchased to USER. If a third party provider error, system error, or other payment processing error or problem of any kind results in an unprocessed payment and therefore USER’s payment card is not charged the total amount due even though the item(s) were shipped to USER, USER hereby authorizes FULFILLER to collect the amount of the total amount due, unless expressly prohibited by law, through whatever means FULFILLER deems appropriate. USER shall be responsible for any and all legal fees or collection costs incurred by USER, FULFILLER, and/or SITE associated with collecting payment. In no event will SITE or FULFILLER be responsible for such collection costs or legal fees.

 

Security of Card Holder Data

SITE and or FULFILLER are responsible for the security of the cardholder data that SITE and FULFILLER are in possession of or otherwise stores, processes, or transmits on behalf of the USER.

 

International Orders

International Orders placed by USER may be subject to delayed processing. SITE recommends that any USER placing an order on the SITE from outside the U.S. should contact their credit card company or financial institution prior to placing an order to prevent unnecessary delays or holds. Neither SITE, nor FULFILLER shall be responsible for delays, holds, or any extra fees associated with placing an International Order.

 

Disputed Charges

By placing an order, USER authorizes SITE to charge USER’s method of payment for the total amount, and any other optional services USER agrees to purchase. If you dispute a charge and it is determined that the charge was valid and not the result of credit card or other payment fraud, SITE has the right to seek payment, including all associated fees, by whatever means SITE deems appropriate, including but not limited to using collection agencies and legal remedies. 

 

Fraudulent Use

To protect USER from fraud, USER may be required to provide additional proof of identity on any order. Proof of identity may include but is not limited to a signed credit card authorization and/or photocopies of public documents such as a state driver’s license or federal passport.

 

Delivery

All orders are delivered to USER using the delivery method chosen for the order. In some cases a User’s selected shipping must be upgraded without notice to USER and the USER will be charged for the upgraded shipping. Orders that require custom manufacturing will be shipped not later than fourteen days from the time when they are received. Some items may be shipped faster or slower depending on availability and nature of the item. USER accepts responsibility to remain informed of fulfillment timelines which are posted prominently on SITE. Some shipments may require direct signature at the point of delivery. By placing an order, USER understands and agrees to the following shipping terms:

 

International Shipping

Should USER be located outside of the United States, USER must choose an International Delivery option. If a domestic shipping option is chosen for an order to be shipped outside the United States, the shipping cost will be adjusted by the FULFILLER after the order is placed to use the International Rate.

 

Delivery Verification

If USER specifies a shipping address that does not allow for Delivery Verification, such as a Post Office Box, USER may be required to pay an additional fee to cover the additional risks associated with this type of order. If such a shipping address is used, the FULFILLER will, at their discretion, either contact USER about the additional fee prior to shipping or cancel USER’s order and notify USER of such cancellation. Shipments may require direct signature at the point of delivery. Once FULFILLER has shipped the products, it is USER responsibility to receive the package. Should the package be refused, undelivered, or returned, refunds or credits will not be issued by FULFILLER as per the all sales are final term of these Terms. If a package has been returned and must be re-shipped by the FULFILLER, it is the USER responsibility to contact the FULFILLER for re-shipping options. USER understands that additional delivery fees may be charged prior to reshipping.

Violation of the Terms

THE SITE AND SITE CONTENT ARE DELIVERED ON AN “AS-IS” AND “AS-AVAILABLE” BASIS. SITE MAKES NO ASSURANCES THAT FILES USER ACCESSES OR DOWNLOADS FROM THE SITE WILL BE FREE OF VIRUSES OR CONTAMINATION OR DESTRUCTIVE FEATURES. SITE DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED INCLUDING ALSO ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. SITE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING FROM THE USE OF THIS SITE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, DIRECT, INDIRECT, VICARIOUS, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, LOSS OF BUSINESS OR LOSS OF PROFITS OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, WHETHER BASED UPON BREACH OF CONTRACT, BREACH OF WARRANTY, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, PRODUCT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE.

SITE DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL LIABILITY FOR THE ACTS, OMISSIONS AND CONDUCT OF ANY THIRD PARTY USERS, SITE USERS, ADVERTISERS AND/OR SPONSORS ON THE SITE, IN CONNECTION WITH THE SITE SERVICE OR OTHERWISE RELATED TO USER USE OF THE SITE AND/OR THE SITE SERVICE. 

 

Limitation on Liability

Except in jurisdictions where such provisions are restricted, in no event will SITE be liable to USER for any indirect, vicarious, consequential, exemplary, incidental, special or punitive damages, including lost profits, even if SITE has been advised of the possibility of such damages. USER further agrees that the maximum available remedy on any successful claim is the greater of the choices listed in the paragraph above. Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of warranties or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation may not apply to USER.

Arbitration and Dispute Resolution

Any controversy, claim, dispute, or other action, arising out of or relating to the use of SITE, any order placed on SITE, or these policies including any dispute over the validity, enforceability or scope of this arbitration provision (a “CLAIM” or “CLAIMS”) shall be resolved through binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) in accordance with its Consumer Rules. SITE will pay all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees for any arbitration for a CLAIM of US$10,000 or less. If, however, the arbitrator finds that either the substance of the CLAIM or the relief sought in the CLAIM is frivolous or that the CLAIM was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all such fees will be governed by applicable AAA Rules. In such case, USER agrees to reimburse SITE for all monies previously disbursed by SITE that are otherwise USER’S obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. In addition, if USER initiates an arbitration for a CLAIM for more than US$10,000, the payment of fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. The AAA rules will determine whether the arbitration will take place through written submissions by USER and SITE, by telephone, or in person. SITE and USER shall both participate in the selection of an arbitrator. Any award issued through arbitration is enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction.

BY AGREEING TO ARBITRATE, USER IS GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE (OR PARTICIPATE IN AS A PARTY OR CLASS MEMBER) ANY AND ALL CLAIMS IN COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY. INSTEAD, A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR WILL RESOLVE ALL CLAIMS. IF USER DOES NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION, USER MUST NOTIFY SITE IN WRITING WITHIN 30 DAYS OF THE DATE THAT USER PLACES AN ORDER ON SITE. USER’S WRITTEN NOTIFICATION TO SITE MUST INCLUDE USER’S NAME, ADDRESS AND ORDER NUMBER AS WELL AS A CLEAR STATEMENT THAT USER DOES NOT WISH TO RESOLVE CLAIMS WITH SITE THROUGH ARBITRATION. WRITTEN NOTIFICATION SHOULD BE MAILED TO: ConnecticutBioTech, LLC. Attn: Legal Department/Arbitration, 75 Gerber Road East, Suite 100, South Windsor, CT 06074.

Any arbitration or trial of any CLAIM will take place on an individual basis without resort to any form of class or representative action (“CLASS ACTION WAIVER”). Regardless of anything else in this Arbitration Provision, the validity and effect of this CLASS ACTION WAIVER may be determined only by a court and not by an arbitrator. USER and SITE acknowledge that the CLASS ACTION WAIVER is material and essential to the arbitration of any disputes between the parties and is non-severable from the agreement to arbitrate CLAIMS. If the CLASS ACTION WAIVER is limited, voided or found unenforceable, then the parties’ agreement to arbitrate shall be null and void with respect to such proceeding, subject to the right to appeal the limitation or invalidation of the CLASS ACTION WAIVER. USER AND SITE ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL A CLASS ACTION BE ARBITRATED.

All CLAIMS brought by USER against SITE must be resolved in accordance with this Arbitration and Dispute Resolution Section. All CLAIMS filed or brought contrary to this Arbitration and Dispute Resolution Section shall be considered improperly filed. Should USER improperly file a CLAIM, SITE may recover attorneys’ fees and costs up to US$1,000 from USER, provided that SITE has notified USER in writing of the improperly filed CLAIM, and USER fails to promptly withdraw the CLAIM after USER receives notice of improper filing from SITE.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, SITE shall be permitted to terminate this Agreement with or without notice to the USER in the event that USER is prevented from performing hereunder due to FORCE MAJEURE.

By submitting a telephone number on SITE, USER agrees that a representative of Connecticut Biotech, LLC. can contact USER at the number USER provided, potentially using automated technology (including texts/SMS messaging) or a pre-recorded message.

SITE may also share USER’S information with affiliated entities of SITE to provide joint content and services, to market the products and services of such entities, or to solicit reviews from the USER about the SITE or transactions made on the Site.

SITE will use USER’s information to respond to USER regarding the reason USER contacted us. SITE will not share USER’s information with any third party outside of SITE’s organization, other than as necessary to fulfill USER request, e.g. to ship an order, or, in some instances, to partner with another company to provide certain content, programs and services such as those disclosed in the previous paragraph. In those cases, SITE will require SITE’s third-party agents to maintain the confidentiality of the data through a written agreement. In those situations, when USER provides personal information, it may be sent directly to the partner company, or SITE may share the information with SITE’s partner company. Unless USER asks SITE not to, SITE may contact USER in the future to tell USER about specials, new products or services, or changes to this PRIVACY POLICY. SITE is not responsible for the policies or offerings of any third party, and SITE urges USER to review third party’s policies and terms and conditions, as they may vary.

In the case of identity theft, USER may authorize a law enforcement officer to request the records from SITE or USER may request that SITE send any records directly to a law enforcement officer.

Use of Cookies, Third Party Advertising, Services and Collection of Data

Please note that third party vendors, including but not limited to Google, show advertisements for SITE on the Internet. Third party vendors, including but not limited to Google, use cookies and web beacons to serve advertisements based on USER’s prior visits to SITE. To opt out of Google’s use of cookies, USER can visit the Google’s Ads Help page to learn more on opting out: https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads. SITE may share, sell, or rent USER information collected voluntarily from USER on the SITE with third party vendors, advertising companies, or analytics providers including but not limited to Google.

In addition, SITE participates in targeted advertising. SITE allows third-party companies to collect certain information when USER visits SITE to provide measurement services to SITE and target ads to USER. SITE uses this information to serve ads for SITE’S products or services or for the products or services of other companies when USER visits this SITE or other websites. These companies use non-personally identifiable information (e.g., click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over, hardware or software information, cookie and session ID) and personally identifiable information (e.g. IP address) during USER’s visits to this SITE and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to USER. These parties typically use a cookie, third party web beacon, or other similar technologies to collect this information.

SITE also works with third parties that collect information across various channels. Such third parties use this information to recognize USER across different channels and platforms, including but not limited to computers, mobile devices, and smart TVs, over time for advertising, analytics, attribution, and reporting purposes. USER’s data may be transferred outside of the country from which it was originally collected.

Some browsers have a ‘do not track’ feature that lets USER tell websites that USER does not want to have USER’s online activities tracked. Currently, SITE does not respond to browser ‘do not track’ signals, but SITE does provide USER the option to opt out of targeted advertising. To learn more about this type of advertising or to opt-out of this type of advertising, visit http://optout.aboutads.info/.

SITE does use flash cookies on the SITE. Flash cookies are small pieces of information stored and accessed by Adobe Flash. If you want to disable these Flash cookies, you’ll need to open the Adobe Settings Manager, accessible either by right-clicking “Flash Content” and clicking ‘Global Settings’, or by navigating directly to your storage settings through the Flash website. There you can clear some or all of your Flash cookies manually through the Website Storage panel, or even turn off Flash Storage completely. However, please remember this could prevent some parts of SITE from working properly.

We also use third-party technology services to better understand the needs of our website users. This enables us to optimize the services that we provide and your experience on the website.

 

Security

SITE takes reasonable precautions to protect USER information. When USER submits sensitive information via the SITE, USER information is protected both online and offline.

Whenever SITE collects sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to SITE in a secure way. USER can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of USER web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page. SITE is committed to not re-identifying sensitive information collected by SITE.

While SITE uses encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, SITE also protects USER information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers and servers in which SITE stores personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

Nonetheless, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and therefore we cannot guarantee the security of data sent to us electronically on the SITE, and transmission of such data is therefore entirely at your own risk.

 

Users Only of Legal Age of Majority

Our SITE is designed and intended for those who have reached the age of majority (18 years of age). By using our SITE, you affirm that you are at least 18 years of age or older. We are not liable for any damages that may result from a user’s misrepresentation of age.

No one under age 13 is authorized to submit or post any information, including personally identifying information, on our SITE. Under no circumstances may anyone under age 13 use our SITE. Parents or legal guardians of children under 13 cannot agree to these Terms on their behalf.
