4. Purchases & Payments

If you purchase a Product through the Service, you will be required to provide your billing and shipping information as well as information regarding your credit or debit card (each, a “Payment Card”) so that we may charge you for the costs and fees associated with your purchase.

Your order is an offer to us to buy the product(s) in your order. When you place an order to purchase a product from us, we will send you an email confirming receipt of your order and containing the details of your order (the “Order Confirmation Email”). The Order Confirmation Email is acknowledgement that we have received your order, and does not confirm acceptance of your offer to buy the product(s) ordered.
