If we are unable to accept your Order, we will inform You of this and will not charge You for the product. This might be because the Product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the Product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline You have specified.

SECTION 6 – THIRD-PARTY SERVICES
In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.
However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions. For these providers, we recommend that You read their privacy policies so You can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.
Specifically, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either You or us.
