C&C reserves the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline your order for any reason. C&C further reserves the right any time after receipt of your order, without prior notice to you, to supply less than the quantity you ordered of any item. Your order will be deemed accepted by C&C upon our delivery of products or services that you have ordered. We may require additional verifications or information before accepting any order. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you agree that, if we cancel all or a portion of your order or if we provide you less than the quantity you ordered, your sole and exclusive remedy is either that (a) we will issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount charged for the cancelled portion or the quantity not provided (if your credit card has already been charged for the order) or (b) we will not charge your credit card for the cancelled portion of the order or the quantity not provided.

We hope we never get into any disputes with you but just in case, here are some things that would apply:
A. GOVERNING LAW/JURISDICTION. THESE TERMS AND THE INTERPRETATION OF THESE TERMS WILL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF RHODE ISLAND WITHOUT REGARD TO ITS CONFLICTS OF LAWS PRINCIPLES AND SPECIFICALLY WILL NOT BE GOVERNED BY THE UNITED NATIONS CONVENTIONS ON CONTRACTS FOR THE INTERNATIONAL SALE OF GOODS, IF OTHERWISE APPLICABLE. YOU AGREE THAT JURISDICTION OVER AND VENUE IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE SITE, THE USE OR ACCESS THEREOF, OR THESE TERMS MUST BE IN THE STATE OR FEDERAL COURTS LOCATED IN KENT COUNTY, RHODE ISLAND AND YOU HEREBY CONSENT AND SUBMIT TO THE EXCLUSIVE PERSONAL JURISDICTION AND VENUE OF THE COURTS LOCATED IN KENT COUNTY, RHODE ISLAND FOR ANY SUCH LEGAL PROCEEDING. ANY CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE WITH RESPECT TO ANY SITE MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER SUCH CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION ARISES.
B. Arbitration. You and we agree that, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, any controversy or claim in connection with or related to the Site or these Terms not otherwise resolved between you and C&C will be settled solely by binding arbitration by a single neutral arbitrator who is a lawyer or retired judge in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), administered in accordance with the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes; provided, however, that any issues relating to C&C’s intellectual property rights, including any such rights C&C claims that may be in dispute, shall only be subject to arbitration if C&C’s President agrees in writing to have such subject to arbitration. However, before either of us wants to arbitrate a dispute, we agree to send written notice to the other providing a description of the dispute, and the proposed resolution. We will send notice to you based on the contact information you have provided us and notice to us must be sent to: Capwell & Co., 35 Onset Street, Warwick, RI 02888, Attn: Business & Legal Affairs. C&C and you agree to make attempts to resolve any dispute. If the parties cannot resolve the dispute within forty-five (45) days of receipt of the notice to arbitrate, then either of us may submit the dispute to formal arbitration. If a party submits the dispute to formal arbitration hereunder and the AAA is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within forty-five (45) days of the filing of a “demand for arbitration,” then either party can elect to have the arbitration administered by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services Inc. (“JAMS”), using its streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures, or any other mutually agreeable arbitration administration service. In arbitration, there is no judge or jury and review is limited. However, just as a court would, the arbitrator must honor the terms and conditions in these Terms and can award the prevailing party(ies) damages and other relief. You and we each further agree that any such controversy or claim will be arbitrated on an individual basis, and will not be consolidated in any arbitration or other proceedings with any claim or controversy of any other party; provided, however, that if for any reason any court or arbitrator holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then our agreement to arbitrate does not apply and the dispute must be brought in court. If an in-person hearing is required, the arbitration hearing will be conducted in Providence, Rhode Island (unless prohibited by applicable law) and judgment on the arbitration award may be entered into any court having jurisdiction of it. The parties will pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees in accordance with the applicable arbitration rules; provided, however, if applicable law requires C&C to pay a greater portion of such fees in order for the arbitration provision to be enforceable, C&C shall have the discretion to elect to pay such fees and proceed to arbitration. You can obtain procedures, rules, and fee information from the AAA at 1-800-778-7879 or www.adr.org and from JAMS at (949) 224-1810 or http://www.jamsadr.com. Discovery shall be permitted pursuant to the applicable arbitration rules. The arbitrator’s award will consist of a written statement stating the disposition of each claim, and will provide a statement of the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. The award shall be enforceable by any court with jurisdiction over the parties. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either of us may bring qualifying claims in small claims court.
C. No Class Actions. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you agree that any and all disputes, claims and causes of action you may have in connection with or related to the Site will be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action.
D. WAIVER OF INJUNCTIVE RELIEF. IF YOU CLAIM THAT YOU HAVE INCURRED ANY LOSS, DAMAGES, OR INJURIES IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE SITE, THEN THE LOSSES, DAMAGES, AND INJURIES WILL NOT BE IRREPARABLE OR SUFFICIENT TO ENTITLE YOU TO AN INJUNCTION OR TO OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF OF ANY KIND. THIS MEANS THAT, IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR CLAIM, YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL NOT SEEK, AND THAT YOU WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO OBTAIN, ANY COURT OR OTHER ACTION THAT MAY INTERFERE WITH OR PREVENT THE DEVELOPMENT OR EXPLOITATION OF ANY WEBSITE, CONTENT, USER-GENERATED CONTENT, PRODUCT, SERVICE, OR OTHER INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY OWNED, LICENSED, USED OR CONTROLLED BY C&C (INCLUDING YOUR LICENSED USER-GENERATED CONTENT) OR A LICENSOR OF C&C.
A. Termination. C&C reserves the right to terminate your access to and use of the Site, in its sole discretion, without notice and liability, including, without limitation, if C&C believes your conduct fails to conform with these Terms. C&C also reserves the right to investigate suspected violations of these Terms, including, without limitation, any violation arising from any e-mails you send to the Site or C&C. Any violation, or potential violation, of these Terms may be referred to law enforcement authorities.
B. Modifications. C&C reserves the exclusive right to modify, withdraw, suspend or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, at any time and from time to time, any Site Content available on the Site, without limitation, in whole or in part, including the cessation of all activities associated with the Site, with or without notice. You agree that C&C will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Site or any part thereof.
What happens upon Termination? Upon termination of your access to the Site, or upon demand from C&C, all rights granted to you under these Terms will cease immediately, and you agree that you will: (a) immediately discontinue use of the Site, including links to the Site; and (b) destroy all Site Content obtained from the Site.
A. Location of Site. The information provided on the Site is not intended for distribution to or use by any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to law or regulation or which would subject C&C to any registration requirement within such jurisdiction or country. C&C controls and operates the Site from offices located in the United States and makes no representations or warranties that the information, products or services contained on the Site are appropriate for use or access in other locations. Anyone using or accessing the Site from other locations does so on his or her own initiative and is responsible for compliance with United States and local laws regarding online conduct and acceptable content, if and to the extent such local laws are applicable. We reserve the right to limit the availability of the Site and/or the provision of any content, program, product, service or other feature described or available thereon to any person, geographic area, or jurisdiction, at any time and in our sole discretion, and to limit the quantities of any such content, program, product, service or other feature that we provide.
B. Software. Software related to or made available by the Site may be subject to United States export controls. Thus, no software from the Site may be downloaded, exported or re-exported (a) into (or to a national or resident of) Cuba, North Korea, Iran, Syria or any other country to which the United States has embargoed goods; or (b) to anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Commerce Department’s Table of Deny Orders. By downloading any software related to the Site, you represent and warrant that you are not located in, under the control of, or a national or resident of, any such country or on any such list.
C&C reserves the right to modify or add to these Terms or any Additional Terms, at any time without prior notice (“Updated Terms”). You agree that we may notify you of the Updated Terms by posting them on the Site so that they are accessible via a link on the home page of the Site, and that your use of the Site after we have posted the Updated Terms (or engaging in such other conduct as we may reasonably specify) constitutes your agreement to the Updated Terms. Therefore, you should review these Terms and any Additional Terms before using the Site. The Updated Terms will be effective as of the time of posting, or such later date as may be specified in the Updated Terms, and will apply to your use of the Site from that point forward.
These Terms cannot be changed or terminated orally. Any failure of C&C to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. No waiver by C&C of any provision of these Terms will be of any force or effect unless made in writing and signed by a duly authorized officer of C&C. C&C may assign its rights and obligations under these Terms and any Additional Terms, in whole or in part, to any party at any time without any notice. These Terms and any Additional Terms may not be assigned by you, and you may not delegate your duties under them, without the prior written consent of an officer of C&C. If any provision of these Terms is held to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable, then the provision will be deemed severable from the Terms and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. The section titles in these Terms are inserted only as a matter of convenience and have no legal or contractual effect. You agree that these Terms will not be construed against C&C by virtue of having drafted them. C&C reserves the right to deny access to all or part of the Site to you or any person in its sole discretion without notice or liability of any kind. Any violation of these Terms may be referred to law enforcement authorities. These Terms, together with any Additional Terms and Rules, constitutes the entire understanding and agreement between you and C&C and supersedes any and all prior or inconsistent understandings relating to the Site and your use of the Site and services provided by the Site.
