This price may not reflect the price of the item when it was initially placed in your cart.

We strive to present the most accurate, recent and reliable information on the Site. However, at times there may be information that may include a typographical error, inaccurate information or omission that may relate to a certain product or service, concerning price, quantity, descriptions and availability. Any errors that may exist are unintentional and we reserve the right to change these errors and update information at any time without providing notice. Should the situation arise where a typographical error or any other type of error in pricing information, we reserve the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for any product listed at the incorrect price. We reserve this right even if an order has been confirmed or a method of payment has been charged. Should an order be cancelled after a method of payment has been charged we will refund the amount that was charged. 

Payment Method

By submitting an order through the Site, you agree to pay in advance the price of the product(s) ordered, plus any applicable taxes, shipping and handling, and/or other charges. Payment may be made by credit cards that we accept, or any other method that we make available to you. In order to make this payment, you must provide us with a valid credit card and/or other associated billing information and authorize us or any third party payment service provider engaged by us to charge your method of payment for all orders and services placed through the Site.

Shipments

All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance by sending you an email confirming the product(s) has shipped. You may choose the method of shipment and timing of the delivery for your product(s) you order through the Site if more than one method is available.

Colors & Style 

We make every effort to display the products as accurately as possible on the Site. However, we cannot guarantee that your computer monitor’s display of any color or style will be accurate.

Intellectual Property Rights

The Site and its entire contents, features, and functionality (including but not limited to all information, text, displays, images, video, audio and the design, selection and arrangements), are owned by Aruna, its licensors, or other providers of such material and are protected by United States and international copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret and other intellectual property or proprietary rights laws.

This Agreement allows you to use and access the Site for your personal, non-commercial use only. You may not reproduce, distribute, modify, create derivative works of, publicly perform, republish, download, store, or transmit any other material on our Site, without the express written consent of Aruna.

You must not access or use the Site for any commercial purposes other than the services or material provided through the Site.

Dispute Resolution, Binding Arbitration

You and Aruna are agreeing to give up any rights to litigate claims in a court or before a jury. Other rights that you would have if you went to court may also be unavailable or may be limited in arbitration.

Any claim, dispute or controversy (whether in contract, tort or otherwise, whether pre-existing, present or future, and including statutory, consumer protection, common law, intentional tort, injunctive and equitable claims) between you and us arising from or relating in any way to your purchase of products or services through the Site, will be resolved exclusively and finally by binding arbitration.

The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect. The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section

The arbitrator will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to arbitrability and/or enforceability of this arbitration provision, including any unconscionability challenge or any other challenge that the arbitration provision or the agreement is void, voidable or otherwise invalid. The arbitrator will be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or equity. Any reward of the arbitrator(s) will be final and binding on each of the parties, and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.

You may elect to pursue your claim in small-claims court rather than arbitration if you provide us with written notice of your intention to so within 60 days of your purchase date. The arbitration or small-claims court proceeding will be limited solely to your individual dispute or controversy.

You agree to an arbitration on an individual basis. In any dispute, neither you nor Aruna will be entitled to join or consolidate claims by or against other customers in court or in arbitration or otherwise participate in any claim as a class representative, class member or in a private attorney capacity. The arbitral tribunal may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitral tribunal has no power to consider the enforceability of this class arbitration waiver and any challenge to the class arbitration waiver may only be raised in a court of competent jurisdiction.

If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be severed and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced.
