The Company and the Purchaser will collectively be referred to as “Parties,” and each individually as a “Party.”
These Terms are the only terms that govern how we provide our Products to you. These Terms:
- Together with your order confirmation (“Order Confirmation”), make up the entire agreement (collectively, this “Agreement”) between you and the Company, and supersede all others, both written and oral, regarding the purchase, sale, and delivery of any Services and the use of the Website.
