  1. Paid Transactions

Identity of Seller

WallBuilders uses a third-party vendor to transact sales on the WallBuilders website and webstore.

The Order Process

You will have the opportunity to review and confirm your order, including delivery address (if applicable), payment method and product details.  We will send to you a notice when we accept your order and our acceptance will be deemed complete and for all purposes to have been effectively communicated to you at the time we send the notice.  At such time, the contract for sale will be made and become binding on both you and us.  The risk of loss in any goods you purchase and the responsibility to insure them passes to you when the relevant goods are delivered.

We reserve the right to refuse or cancel any order prior to delivery.  Some situations that may result in your order being cancelled include system or typographical errors, inaccuracies in product or pricing information or product availability, fairness among customers where supplies are limited, or problems identified by our credit or fraud departments.  We also may require additional verification or information before accepting an order.  We will contact you if any portion of your order is cancelled or if additional information is required to accept your order.  If your order is cancelled after we have processed your payment but prior to delivery, we will refund your payment.

Payments and Billing

When you provide payment information, you represent and warrant that the information is accurate, that you are authorized to use the payment method provided, and that you will notify us of changes to the payment information.  We reserve the right to utilize third party credit card updating services to obtain current expiration dates on credit cards.  If you use a payment method other than a credit card, you may incur an additional payment processing fee and may not be able to automatically renew subscriptions.

Right of Cancellation

All license purchase fees are non-refundable.  When purchasing a license to access digital content or virtual items, you agree that you are not entitled to a cancellation or cooling-off period and that the license purchase becomes final when you receive delivery of or otherwise access such content.

Right of Return

You have the right, within thirty (30) days from the date of your receipt of the relevant goods, to cancel our contract with you and return the goods.  This right does not apply to digital content, virtual items or products stated by us on the WallBuilders website and webstore to be non-returnable, including sale and clearance items, audio and video recordings, computer software, and CD’s, DVD’s or other physical media that have been unsealed.

Pricing; Taxes

We may revise the pricing for products and services we offer.  If you pay a periodic subscription fee for a WallBuilders Service, we will provide you with reasonable notice of changes to the fees or billing methods in advance of their effective date and you will be able to cancel your subscription prior to such change.  When you place your order, we estimate the tax and include that estimate in the total for your convenience.  The actual tax amount that will be applied to your order and charged to your payment method is based on calculations on the date of shipment, regardless of when the order was placed.

  1. Additional Provisions

Submissions and Unsolicited Ideas Policies

Our company policy does not allow us to accept or consider unsolicited creative ideas, suggestions or materials.  In connection with anything you submit to us – whether or not solicited by us – you agree that creative ideas, suggestions or other materials you submit are not being made in confidence or trust and that no confidential or fiduciary relationship is intended or created between you and us in any way, and that you have no expectation of review, compensation or consideration of any type.

Claims of Copyright Infringement

Notifications of claimed copyright infringement and counter notices must be sent to:

WallBuilders

PO Box 397

Aledo, TX 76008

 

We are only able to accept notices in the English language.

We will respond to claims of copyright infringement committed using the WallBuilders website and webstore that are reported to our Designated Copyright Agent, identified above, after investigation for validity, in accordance with the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (“DMCA”) or, as applicable, other laws.  With respect to WallBuilders website and webstore hosted in the United States, these notices must include the required information set forth in the DMCA.

Choice of Forum

You agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to these terms or the WallBuilders website and webstore shall be filed, and that venue properly lies, only in the state or federal courts located in Texas, United States of America and you consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating such action.

Choice of Law

These terms are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas and the laws of the United States, without giving effect to any conflict of law principles.

Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver

You and WallBuilders agree to arbitrate all disputes between you and WallBuilders or its affiliates, except disputes relating to the enforcement of WallBuilders or its affiliates’ intellectual property rights.  “Dispute” includes any dispute, action or other controversy between you and us concerning the WallBuilders website and webstore or these terms, whether in contract, tort, warranty, statute or regulation, or other legal or equitable basis.

In the event of a dispute, you or WallBuilders must send to the other party a notice of dispute, which is a written statement that sets forth the name, address and contact information of the party giving the notice, the facts giving rise to the dispute, and the relief requested.  You must send any notice of dispute to WallBuilders, PO Box 397, Aledo, Texas 76008, USA, and Attention: Legal Department/Arbitration Notice.  We will send any notice of dispute to you at the contact information we have for you.  You and WallBuilders will attempt to resolve a dispute through informal negotiation within sixty (60) days from the date the notice of dispute is sent.  After sixty (60) days, you or we may commence arbitration.  You may also litigate a dispute in small claims court if the dispute meets the requirements to be heard in small claims court, whether or not you negotiated informally first.

If you and WallBuilders do not resolve a dispute by informal negotiation or in small claims court, the dispute shall be settled by binding arbitration before a neutral arbitrator whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act.  YOU ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE A DISPUTE IN COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY.  Arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and its Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes.  For more information, visit www.adr.org or, in the United States, call 800-778-7879.  Arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online.  The arbitrator may award damages to you individually as a court could, including declaratory or injunctive relief, but only to the extent required to satisfy your individual claim.

Unless the arbitrator finds the arbitration was frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, WallBuilders will pay all filing, AAA, and arbitrator’s fees and expenses.  If the arbitrator issues you an award that is greater than the value of our last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected (or if we did not make a settlement offer before an arbitrator was selected), then we will pay you the amount of the award or US $1,000, whichever is greater, and pay your attorney, if any, the amount of attorneys’ fees, and reimburse any expenses (including expert witness fees and costs) that you or your attorney reasonably accrue for investigating, preparing and pursuing your claim in arbitration.  We waive any right to seek an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses in connection with any non-frivolous arbitration between you and us.

If you are a resident of the United States, arbitration will take place at any reasonable location convenient for you.  For residents outside the United States, arbitration shall be initiated in Parker County, Texas, United States of America, and you and WallBuilders agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal or state courts located there, in order to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.

PROCEEDINGS TO RESOLVE OR LITIGATE A DISPUTE IN ANY FORUM WILL BE CONDUCTED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS.  Neither you nor WallBuilders will seek to have a dispute heard as a class action, private attorney general action, or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity.  No arbitration or proceeding can be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to the arbitration or proceeding.  If the class action waiver is found to be illegal or unenforceable as to all or some parts of a dispute, those parts will be severed and proceed in a court of law, with the remaining parts proceeding in arbitration.

Severability

If any provision of these terms shall be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

Survival

The provisions of these terms which by their nature should survive the termination of these terms shall survive such termination.

Waiver

No waiver of any provision of these terms by us shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such provision or any other provision, and our failure to assert any right or provision under these terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
