Yugster Website Terms and Conditions
Updated as of 22 May 2018.
Please read the Terms carefully. Together, they form a binding and enforceable agreement between you and Yugster (“Agreement”). BY ACCESSING, USING, VIEWING, TRANSMITTING, CACHING, OR STORING THE SITE OR ANY OF THE SERVICES, FUNCTIONS, OR MATERIALS AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THE SITE, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND TO THE TERMS. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE, DO NOT USE THE SITE.
If you use the Site or any of the Services available through the Site on behalf of a third party, you represent and warrant to us that you have the power and authority to bind that third party to this Agreement and all references to “you” or “your” and words of similar meaning will include that third party.
Setting up an Account
Yugster reserves the right not to accept and process orders that do not comply with our business policies and/or vendor agreements. Products ordered on this Site may be subject to shipping limitations such as shipping only to physical addresses located in the United States, or no shipping to P.O. boxes or APO/FPO addresses, and applicable limitations will be noted in connection with available Items or during the purchasing process. All Services are provided subject to applicable state and local laws.
All orders are subject to acceptance by Yugster and product availability. By submitting a purchase request to Yugster for any product you represent and warrant that all information submitted to Yugster in connection thereto is complete and accurate. At Yugster’s discretion, purchase requests will be processed but Yugster reserves the right not to accept your purchase request in its sole discretion. In such case, Yugster will inform you by email.
Prices (if any) indicated on each product page are exclusive of applicable taxes. Prices are subject to change. However, such changes will not impact the price or the description of the products for which you have already submitted a purchase request.
You may pay for your order using the payment methods available on the Site. The price for the purchase of products and the corresponding costs for shipping, delivery, and/or tax, as indicated by Yugster, may be charged to your chosen payment method. You agree to pay Yugster in full as identified in the purchase process via the Site. To ensure that your credit or debit card is not being used without your consent, Yugster may validate your name, address, and certain other personally identifiable information supplied by you in placing the order. Yugster reserves the right to implement any additional and/or other payment security system from time to time.
The appearance of products displayed on the Site may not exactly correspond to actual products in terms of image, dimensions, and color depending on your Internet browser and/or your monitor quality.
Refunds, for whatever reason, of any payment to be received by you will take place using the same method of payment you chose during the check-out procedure and cannot be amended after your order has been placed. Yugster will not be responsible for any delays beyond its control, including without limitation delays caused by the method of payment/refund or those attributable to the card issuer or delays in shipment or delivery.
Any right of withdrawal or returns must comply with the terms set forth herein.
Disclaimer of Warranties and Limitation of Liability
Yugster sells products from a wide range of manufacturers and the warranty period varies. The warranty period for each product is as described in the relevant product listing information on the website.
If your product arrives broken or non-working, at our option and in our sole discretion, we may replace it or refund your purchase. Typically, we will send you a pre-paid return label to send it back to us. If your purchase stops working during the warranty period stated in the product listing, please contact the either Yugster or the manufacturer (as specified in the warranty note for each Item) for replacement or repair.
THE SITE, PRODUCTS SOLD VIA THE SITE, AND SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE.” YUGSTER DOES NOT CERTIFY OR GUARANTEE THE ACCURACY, COMPLETENESS, OR ADEQUACY OF THE SITE OR ANY PRODUCTS OR SERVICES AND DOES NOT RECOMMEND OR ENDORSE THE PRODUCTS THAT MAY BE PROVIDED THROUGH THE SITE. YUGSTER EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES AND REPRESENTATIONS OF ANY KIND WITH REGARD TO THE SITE, ANY PRODUCTS AVAILABLE VIA THE SITE, SERVICES AND OTHER SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS AGREEMENT, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY WARRANTIES OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, MERCHANTABILITY, TITLE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT.
YUGSTER WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, HOWEVER CAUSED, UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OFFENSE (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE OR OTHERWISE), ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH OR OUT OF THE USE OF THE SITE, ANY PRODUCTS AVAILABLE VIA THE SITE, OR SERVICES. IN JURISDICTIONS WHERE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES IS NOT PERMITTED, YUGSTER’S LIABILITY IS LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
Cancellations and Returns
You may cancel orders automatically online by accessing your Account via our Site and navigating to the Customer Account Page, and then clicking the Red Cancel Button next to your order, which will take you to the “Submit a Ticket” page. Once the order has been processed, however, this Red Cancel Button disappears and the order can no longer be canceled.
Returns for defective products, or, those that arrived broken or in non-working order, are only allowed if your request is received by Yugster within twenty-one (21) calendar days from your order ship date and all returns must be received complete (with all original packaging and contents) by Yugster within fourteen (14) calendar days after the return is approved. After that, or if the product and packaging are not complete, no returns for such products are available from Yugster. To request warranty information or to request a return for a defective item, click on the Contact Us link on the Site. We will do our best to respond to your email request in a timely manner.
Returns for products that have stopped working during the warranty period, if there is a manufacturer’s warranty, the warranty specifics, including contact information, are typically found in the packaging. If you can’t find it or if the warranty is through Yugster and not the manufacturer, we’ll be happy to provide you with the necessary information. To request warranty information or to request a return for a defective item, click on the Contact Us link on the Site. We will do our best to respond to your email request in a timely manner. If your item is covered by a manufacturer warranty but you choose not to go through the manufacturer for support and return the product to us instead, a 15% restocking fee will apply.
Generally, we are not able to approve a return for a non-defective item, and some items are not returnable in any case, due to their nature. This is noted on the product page (ex: Yugster’s Junk boxes are not returnable or refundable). However, there are some exceptions. Please do not open the product if you do not plan to keep the item you purchased. If you decide to return an opened product, we typically cannot take it back. If an exception is made, we charge a fifteen percent (15%) restocking fee.
For any returns, we do not credit back any shipping charges paid on the original order and do not pay or reimburse for any return shipping back to us.
We reserve the right to withdraw or amend the Site, Services, or any portion thereof in our sole discretion without notice. We will not be liable if for any reason the Site or any Services are unavailable at any time or for any period.
You are responsible for (a) making all arrangements necessary for you to have access to the Site (e.g., providing your own equipment and internet connection and paying any internet access fees) and (b) ensuring that all persons who access the Site through your internet connection are aware of the terms and conditions of this Agreement and comply with them.
Participating in Promotions
We may post banners, advertisements, promotions, and similar content throughout the Site. If we offer promotions, they will be subject to additional terms and conditions to which you must agree before entering (“Promotions Rules”). The Promotions Rules are considered part of these Terms and therefore part of the binding legal Agreement between you and us. Please read any Promotions Rules carefully before entering.
Third Party Content and Linked Websites
The Site also may include advertisements and information about products and services from third parties and the Site or the Services may contain links to third-party websites (collectively, “Third Party Providers and Sites”). We do not warrant the accuracy of this content and its presence on the Site does not imply any endorsement or sponsorship of the person or company posting the information or the referenced products or services. We specifically disclaim all responsibility and liability for any content, services, or products available on or offered through Third Party Providers and Sites. In addition to the Terms, your access to and use of any Third Party Provider and Sites content, products or services available through the Site are subject to the applicable Third Party Provider terms, which may include payment of fees. Except as set forth in these Terms, the Third Party Providers and Sites’ terms will control your access to and use of content on the third party websites. Any interactions, correspondence, and business dealings that you have with any Third Party Providers and Sites are solely between you and the third party (including, without limitation, issues related to the content of third party advertisements, payments, delivery of goods, warranties, and the like). We do not control or endorse these websites, and if you access any Third Party Providers and Sites, you do so at your own risk.
