WHETHER A PARTICULAR CLAIM OR DISPUTE IS SUBJECT TO ARBITRATION—SHALL BE DETERMINED BY THE ARBITRATOR. NOTWITHSTANDING ANY PROVISION IN THESE TERMS TO THE CONTRARY, IF THE CLASS-ACTION WAIVER ABOVE IS DEEMED INVALID OR UNENFORCEABLE YOU AGREE THAT YOU SHALL NOT SEEK TO, AND WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO, ARBITRATE CLASS OR COLLECTIVE CLAIMS.

For physical Product, we do not charge your credit card until after your order has entered the shipping process.
Product Descriptions; Pricing. We attempt to be as accurate as possible in describing Product (including pricing) offered for purchase; however, we do not represent or warrant that all such descriptions are complete, current or error-free. From time to time there may be information on the Site that contains typographical errors, inaccuracies, or omissions that may relate to Product descriptions, pricing, and availability. We reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions and to change or update information at any time without prior notice (including after orders are submitted). If physical Product offered on the Site is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items on the Site may be mispriced. If an item’s correct price is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.
Shipping. Please allow up to ten (10) business days for delivery, depending on shipping method, to locations inside the United States of America (50 States and the District of Columbia), and up to fourteen (14) days for delivery to locations outside the United States.
Access to Purchased Hosted Content and Digital Content. After registering an Account and completing your purchase of Hosted Content, please allow up to 24 hours for such Hosted Content to appear in your Account. After purchasing Digital Content, please allow up to 24 hours for us to transmit an e-mail confirmation to you that includes a link to such Digital Content.
Return and Cancellation Policy. All sales of Digital Content are final. We do not accept returns of Digital Content. Once you have purchased Digital Content, we encourage you to download it promptly and to make back-up copies of it.

You bear all risk of loss after purchase and for any loss of Digital Content you have downloaded, including any loss due to a computer or hard drive crash. We may, from time to time, remove Digital Content and certain Hosted Content from the Service without notice. If within 72 hours of our acceptance of your order for Hosted Content, you send written notice to us at [email] that the Hosted Content did not meet your expectations and request a refund, your right to access and use the Hosted Content will terminate and you will be eligible to receive a refund of the purchase price for such Hosted Content. After the expiration of the 72 hour period, purchased Hosted Content that is payable in monthly installments (if applicable) may be cancelled by sending notice of your cancellation to [email]. If you cancel your subscription (if applicable) to Hosted Content as set forth in the previous sentence, your right to access and use the Hosted Content will terminate and you will receive no refund; however, your obligation to pre-pay for future months of your subscription to Hosted Content will terminate. To be eligible for a refund in connection with any other Product (e.g., physical merchandise) purchased via the Site, the applicable Product must be returned to us in its original packaging, in unused condition, and accompanied by the relevant packing slip or receipt within fourteen (14) days from the date of purchase.
Discontinuation of Hosted Content. We reserve the right to discontinue providing Hosted Content at any time. In the unlikely event that we discontinue providing Hosted Content that you have purchased from us prior to the expiration of the applicable Hosted Content access period described in Section 2.e above, you may be eligible for a refund as follows. If you purchased Hosted Content from us less than 72 hours prior to the discontinuation, you shall be eligible for a refund of the full purchase price received by us from you for that Hosted Content. If you purchased Hosted Content from us 72 hours or more prior to the discontinuation, your obligation to pre-pay for future months of your subscription (if applicable) to Hosted Content will terminate. Refunds will be credited back to the original credit card used for payment or, in the discretion of VFA, sent to you via check. All refund requests must include your full name and be made by you or the holder of the credit card used by you. Notwithstanding the foregoing, VFA reserves the right to cancel your access to Hosted Content or any other part of the Site in the event you breach any term or condition identified in (i) the Terms of Service, (ii) these Purchase Terms and Conditions or (iii) any Rule on the Site. In such event, you will not be entitled to any refund.
