2.   Orders

a.   USER REPRESENTS AND WARRANTS TO ACME TOOLS THAT USER IS AUTHORIZED TO ENTER INTO AND BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS ON USER’S BEHALF OR ON BEHALF OF THE ENTITY THAT USER REPRESENTS. By ordering merchandise or services on this Website, User shall be deemed to have ordered the specified merchandise and/or services from Acme Tools pursuant to these Terms. The acceptance and fulfillment by Acme Tools of any Order placed on this Website is subject to User's acceptance of all of these Terms. All other contrary terms and conditions are expressly rejected, and no addition or modification to these Terms shall be binding unless specifically agreed to in writing by Acme Tools. User accepts these Terms by placing an Order through this Website or by receiving delivery of any merchandise ordered by User from this Website. Acme Tools shall not be deemed to have accepted User's Order unless and until Acme Tools sends to User, through electronic means, facsimile or other written communication, an acknowledgment that User's Order has been confirmed and will be fulfilled by Acme Tools. Acme Tools' acceptance of any Order by User is made only with the express understanding that these Terms shall govern any Order of merchandise and/or services through this Website by User.

b.   To purchase any merchandise and/or services on this Website, User must (a) be at least eighteen (18) years of age, or (b) be a natural person residing in, or a corporate entity incorporated or organized in, one of the 50 states of the United States. Prior to the purchase of any merchandise or services on this Website, User must provide Acme Tools with a valid credit card number and associated payment information including all of the following: (i) User's name exactly as it appears on the credit card, (ii) User's credit card number, (iii) the credit card type, (iv) the date of expiration and (v) any activation numbers or codes needed to charge User's credit card. By submitting that information to Acme Tools, User hereby agrees that User authorizes Acme Tools to charge User's card at Acme Tools' convenience but within 20 days of credit card authorization. All sales of merchandise and services hereunder are final, and all charges from those sales are nonrefundable .

c.   All prices for merchandise and services on this Website are quoted in U.S. Dollars, are valid and effective only in the United States, and are subject to change at any time without notice. Price comparisons made on this Website highlight the relative savings amounts of the pricing reflected herein, with the "List Price" being the manufacturer's suggested retail price ("MSRP") provided to Acme Tools by the manufacturers. Acme Tools makes no representation or warranty that Acme Tools' price is the lowest price available to User, or that any merchandise has been sold at the List Price. The "Customer Savings" reflected in this Website is the difference between Acme Tools' sale price and the MSRP provided to Acme Tools.

d.   User shall be responsible for any tax or other governmental charge due to the sale, use or delivery of the merchandise, including, but not limited to, sales tax, use tax, retailer's occupational tax, and Value Added Tax. Acme Tools shall automatically charge and withhold the applicable sales tax for Orders to be delivered to addresses in any states or localities that it deems is required.

e.   Merchandise availability is subject to change at any time, and Acme Tools makes no representations or warranties regarding the availability of merchandise in all areas. Acme Tools shall have the right to refuse or cancel any Orders placed for merchandise and/or services listed at an incorrect price or rebate amount, or containing any other incorrect information or typographical errors. Acme Tools shall have the right to refuse or cancel any such Orders whether or not the Order has been accepted by Acme Tools and/or User's credit card has been debited. If User's credit card has already been charged for the Order and User's Order is refused or canceled, Acme Tools shall promptly issue a credit to User's credit card account in the amount of the charge.

f.   All payments on this Website must be made by VISA, MasterCard, American Express and Discover Network. Unless expressly set forth on this Website, Acme Tools does not accept any other payment form. User's credit card agreement with the issuer of such card governs User's use of such card, and User must look only to that agreement and not these Terms to determine User's rights and obligations relating thereto. User shall remain responsible for any unauthorized charges to or purchases using User's credit card by a third party. User agrees to pay all fees and charges incurred in connection with User's purchases (including any applicable taxes) at the rates in effect when the charges were incurred. Unless User notifies Acme Tools of any discrepancies in charges for Orders under this Website within sixty (60) days after they first appear on User's credit card statement, User agrees that they will be deemed accepted by User for all purposes. In the event Acme Tools does not receive payment from User's credit card issuer or its agent, User shall pay all amounts due upon demand by Acme Tools.

g.   User's receipt of an Order confirmation does not signify Acme Tools' acceptance of such Order. Acme Tools reserves the right at any time after receipt of User's Order to accept or decline User's Order for any reason, or supply less than the quantity User ordered of any merchandise. User's Order will be deemed accepted by Acme Tools only upon shipment of merchandise or performance of services that User has ordered.

h.   ACME TOOLS RESERVES THE RIGHT, AT ANY TIME AND FROM TIME TO TIME, TO CHANGE ITS ORDERING AND BILLING PROCEDURES EFFECTIVE UPON POSTING ON THIS WEBSITE.
