We have no responsibility or liability whatsoever for Products you may obtain from or through other websites or web pages, even if you were directed or linked to such a site or page through the GPQ-US Site. Moreover, we are not responsible in any manner for assisting you in correcting any problem you may experience with such Products.

Our creation or transmission of an order confirmation neither signifies acceptance of your order nor constitutes a binding confirmation of an offer to sell any Product, and we reserve the right to accept or decline your order for any reason up until the time the Product is actually delivered to you. We reserve the right at any time, without prior notice, to limit or reduce the quantity you ordered of any Product and we will notify you if we do so. All orders must obtain pre-approval with an acceptable method of payment, as established by our credit and authorization policies and practices in effect at the time of your order. We may contact you and require additional information from you before we grant such pre-approval. Products on the GPQ-US Site are offered for sale only to end user customers or as personal gifts to end user customers and not for resale. We do not knowingly accept orders from dealers, exporters, wholesalers, distributors, resellers or other similar persons or companies, and reserve the right to refuse, cancel or seek the return of any Products that are purchased in violation of the foregoing restrictions.

You are responsible for any taxes imposed on the sale or use of Products and applicable taxes will be added to the amount charged for Products purchased on the GPQ-US Site. If an order consists of multiple items, they may be shipped separately depending on availability. We have no responsibility or liability whatsoever for goods or services you may obtain from or through other websites or web pages, even if you were directed or linked to such a site or page through the GPQ-US Site.

We try to assure the accuracy of all information displayed on the GPQ-US Site, but it is possible that the information contains errors, inaccuracies, or omissions. In particular, with respect to product information, we have tried to accurately post such information. Despite our best efforts, some such information may contain errors. We are not liable for any harm caused or related to any such errors.

With respect to Products offered on the GPQ-US Site, we have tried to accurately display colors, but depending on the specifications and settings of your computer and its monitor, the colors you see might not accurately depict the actual colors of the Product. Certain weights, measures and similar descriptions are approximate and are provided for convenience purposes only. In addition, due to typical and very common manufacturing inconsistencies, Product weights and measurements can vary slightly from the specific information set forth on the GPQ-US Site. Minor Product variations in color, weights and measurements will not be considered as resulting in Products being deemed defective.

Despite our best efforts, a small number of the Products on the GPQ-US Site may be mispriced.  If a Product sold on the GPQ-US Site is listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect information, we reserve the right to refuse or cancel orders placed for that Product, whether or not the order has been confirmed and even if your credit or debit card account has been charged (in which event we will issue a credit to your account in the amount of the charge).  Please note that this policy applies only to Products sold and shipped by GPQ. Your purchases from third-party sellers are charged at the time you place your order, and third-party sellers may follow different policies in the event of a mispriced item.

13.        ADS AND MALWARE

We take great care and pride in creating the GPQ-US Site.  We are always watching out for technical glitches that effect how the GPQ-US Site works. When we find them on our end, we will fix them. Unfortunately, your home computer may cause some glitches that effect how you see the GPQ-US Site, and that is totally beyond our control.

If you experience any unusual behavior, content or ads on the GPQ-US Site, it may be the result of “Malware” on your computer.  “Malware” — short for MALicious softWARE — is a term used to broadly classify a form of software which is installed in a computer system with malicious intentions, usually without the owner’s knowledge or permission.  Malware includes computer viruses, key loggers, malicious active content, rogue programs and dialers, among others.  While we continuously work closely with our partners to ensure that everything on the GPQ-US Site is working properly, sometimes Malware programs on your personal computer may interfere with your experience on the GPQ-US Site and on other sites that you visit. If you do discover any Malware on your system, we suggest you speak with a qualified computer technician.

Although the GPQ-US Site may be accessible worldwide, we make no representation that materials thereon are lawful, appropriate or available for use in locations outside the United States of America, and accessing them from territories where its content is illegal is prohibited. Those who choose to access the GPQ-US Site from other locations do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with all local laws. You acknowledge that if you access the GPQ-US Site from outside the United States, the laws on advertising, data privacy, content restrictions, and other pertinent topics may be different in your country (or location) from those in the United States under which this site is compliant. Any offer for any Product, service, and/or information made in connection with the GPQ-US Site is void where prohibited.
