Information You Submit to Us through the Site.
The Site is controlled or operated (or both) from the United States, and is not intended to subject William D Scott to any non-U.S. jurisdiction or law. The Site may not be appropriate or available for use in any non-U.S. jurisdiction. Any use of the Site is at your own risk, and you must comply with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations in doing so. We may limit the Site’s availability at any time, in whole or in part, to any person, geographic area, or jurisdiction that we choose.
The Site may make available listings, descriptions, and images of goods or services or related coupons or discounts (collectively, “Products”), as well as references and links to Products. Such Products may be made available by William D Scott or by third parties. The availability through the Site of any listing, description, or image of a third-party Product does not imply our endorsement of such Product or affiliation with the provider of such Product. We make no representations as to the completeness, accuracy, or timeliness of such listings, descriptions, or images (including any features, specifications, and prices contained therein). Such information and the availability of any Product (including the validity of any coupon or discount) is subject to change at any time without notice. Certain weights, measures, and similar descriptions are approximate and are for convenience only. We make reasonable efforts to accurately display the attributes of Products, including the applicable colors, however the actual colors you see will depend on your computer system, and we cannot guarantee that your computer will accurately display such colors. We reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies, or omissions regarding such attributes. There may be errors in the prices of certain merchandise, and we reserve the right to restrict orders of such items and correct any errors, inaccuracies, or omissions regarding such items. It is your responsibility to ascertain and obey all applicable local, state, federal, and foreign laws (including minimum age requirements) regarding the possession, use, and sale of any Product.
Ordering Products from Us.
We may make available the ability to purchase or otherwise obtain certain Products through the Site or through other sales channels such as telephone orders and mail orders (each, a “Transaction”). If you wish to make a Transaction, you may be asked to supply certain relevant information, such as your credit card number and its expiration date, your billing address, and your shipping information. YOU HEREBY REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO USE ANY CREDIT CARD THAT YOU SUBMIT IN CONNECTION WITH A TRANSACTION. By submitting such information, you grant to us the right to provide such information to third parties for purposes of facilitating Transactions. Verification of information may be required prior to the acknowledgment or completion of any Transaction. You agree to pay all charges incurred by you or on your behalf through the Site, at the prices in effect when such charges are incurred, including all shipping and handling charges. In addition, you are responsible for any taxes applicable to your Transactions. While it is our practice to confirm orders by email, the receipt of an email order confirmation does not constitute our acceptance of an order or our confirmation of an offer to sell a product or service.
William D Scott reserves the right, including without prior notice, to limit the available quantity of or discontinue making available any Product; to impose conditions on the honoring of any coupon, discount, or similar promotion; to bar any user from making any Transaction; and to refuse to provide any user with any Product. By making a Transaction, you represent that the applicable Products will be used only in a lawful manner. You agree that you will not resell any products or services obtained through a Transaction, unless we have provided our express prior written consent for you to do so.
Refunds & Exchanges.
Refunds and exchanges will be subject to William D Scott’s applicable refund and exchange policies. The refund and exchange policy for Transactions made through the Site is available at https://www.williamdscott.com/william-d-scott-return-policy
If you are a trade customer, as determined by William D Scott, then, in addition to this Agreement, the Trade Program policies will apply to you and your Transactions as a trade customer; such additional terms and conditions are available at https://www.williamdscott.com/william-d-scott-terms-of-use and are generally made available in connection with the registration process for trade customers.
To the extent of any conflict between the terms and conditions of this Agreement and those of the Trade Program policies, those of the Trade Program will govern.

Your user name and password are for your personal use only and should be kept confidential; you, and not William D Scott, are responsible for any use or misuse of your user name or password, and you must promptly notify us of any confidentiality breach or unauthorized use of your user name, password, or account for any part of our Site.

We neither control nor endorse, nor are we responsible for, any Third Party Materials, including the accuracy, integrity, quality, legality, usefulness, or safety of Third Party Materials, or any intellectual property rights therein.

We have no obligation to monitor Third Party Materials, and we may block or disable access to any Third Party Materials (in whole or part) through the Site at any time. In addition, the availability of any Third Party Materials through the Site does not imply our endorsement of, or our affiliation with, any provider of such Third Party Materials, nor does such availability create any legal relationship between you and any such provider.

Governing Law and Mandatory Arbitration Provision.
If a dispute, controversy or claim, of any kind and every kind or type, whether based on contract, tort, statute, regulations, or otherwise, arising out of, or connected with, or relating in any way to this Agreement, or the relationship of the parties, or the obligations of the parties, or the scope of this arbitration agreement, of the operations carried out under this Agreement, including without limitation, any dispute as to the existence, validity, construction, interpretation, negotiation, performance, non-performance, breach, termination, scope, or enforceability of this Agreement, or the breach thereof (any one of which constituting the “Dispute”), and if the Dispute cannot be settled through direct discussions (in the opinion of any party), the parties agree to first endeavor to settle the Dispute in an amicable manner by mediation under the then current Commercial Mediation Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), before resorting to arbitration. If the Dispute is not settled by mediation within thirty (30) days of written request for mediation by any party to AAA, then and thereafter any unresolved Dispute, including the arbitrability of any unresolved Dispute, shall be settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the then current AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules with the award being final and binding. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Any provisional remedy which would be available from a court of law shall be available from the arbitrator to the parties to this Agreement pending arbitration. The Federal Arbitration Act shall govern all arbitration proceedings under this Agreement. This Agreement shall in all other respects be governed and interpreted by the laws of the State of Texas, including its statutes of limitation but excluding any conflicts or choice of law rule or principles that might otherwise refer construction or interpretation of this Agreement to the substantive law of another jurisdiction. The arbitration shall be conducted in Dallas, Texas, by one neutral arbitrator chosen by AAA according to its Commercial Arbitration Rules. Neither party nor the arbitrator may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration hereunder without the prior written consent of all parties. All fees and expenses of the arbitration shall be borne by the parties equally who shall make deposits as requested by AAA of each party’s share of the deposits requested. Failure or refusal by a party to pay its share of the requested deposits shall constitute a waiver by the non-paying party of its rights to be heard, present evidence, cross-examine witnesses, and assert counterclaims in the arbitration. Informing the arbitrator of a party’s failure to pay its share of the requested deposits for the purpose of implementing this waiver provision shall not be deemed to affect the arbitrator’s impartiality, neutrality, independence, or ability to proceed with the arbitration. However, each party shall bear the expense of its own counsel, experts, witnesses, and preparation and presentation of proofs. The prevailing party, according to the arbitrator, shall be entitled to an award of reasonable attorney’s fees for the arbitration and for all appeals of the award, arbitration fees and administrative expenses, and pre-award and post-award interest at the prevailing Texas statutory pre-judgment and post-judgment interest rates. This agreement to arbitrate shall survive the termination or repudiation of this Agreement.

California Transparency in Supply Chains Act (SB 657) Disclosure.
William D Scott is providing the following disclosure in compliance with The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (SB 657), which requires that companies disclose their efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their direct supply chains.
- - Vendor Code of Conduct.

Our Vendor Code of Conduct also requires that vendors conduct their operations in accordance with all laws applicable to their businesses.
- - Monitoring of Compliance. We review the terms of our Vendor Code of Conduct with all of our suppliers, and conduct periodic reviews of their facilities in order to confirm that they are in compliance with all required policies.
- - Training. We train our employees who are responsible for procuring products on the importance of confirming that our vendors comply with the Vendor Code of Conduct, including its prohibitions on child labor and involuntary labor. We also train our employees to identify and respond to concerns about labor practices in the supply chain that might arise from time to time.
- - Corrective Action. In the event that a vendor was to violate our Vendor Code of Conduct, we would have the option to terminate our business relationship with that vendor or take other actions with that vendor to remediate any problems that had been identified.
California Proposition 65 Warnings
In 1986, the State of California passed the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, commonly known as “Proposition 65”, to address concerns of toxic chemicals contaminating the drinking water. Today, Proposition 65 has grown to include over 800 chemicals and compounds, many of which are found in common household goods. The Complete Proposition 65 Chemical List (the “Prop 65 List”), which is compiled by the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) can be found at https://www.p65warnings.ca.gov/chemicals
Proposition 65 requires businesses to provide warnings to residents of California that exposure to certain chemicals and places may cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. In the state of California, these warnings can be found on products and in most commercial places. The following are examples of products or places that can expose you to the Prop 65 List chemicals: grocery stores, jewelry, coffee, electric cords, amusement parks, wood dust, lamps, parking garages, hospitals, automobiles, beauty products, restaurants, and furniture.
Warning labels are only required to be placed on items that are sold or distributed to California and contain any of the chemicals or compounds on the Prop 65 List. We place warning stickers on all of our products that contain wood dust or any of the other 800+ substances on the Prop 65 List because we do not know where each item will ship when it is manufactured and packaged. Companies risk large fines for not warning consumers that a product contains a substance on the Prop 65 List. The State of California requires the warning stickers to read: “This product contains chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer or birth defects or other reproductive harm.”
If you would like to learn more about Proposition 65, please visit the following website: https://oehha.ca.gov/

(“Apple”). Apple is not a party to this Agreement and does not own and is not responsible for the Apps. Apple is not providing any warranty for the Apps except, if applicable, to refund the purchase price for it. Apple is not responsible for maintenance or other support services for the Apps and shall not be responsible for any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses with respect to the Apps, including any third-party product liability claims, claims that the App fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement, claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation, and claims with respect to intellectual property infringement. Any inquiries or complaints relating to the use of the Apps, including those pertaining to intellectual property rights, must be directed to William D Scott in accordance with the “Information or Complaints” section above. The license you have been granted herein is limited to a non-transferable license to use the Apps on an Apple branded product that runs Apple’s iOS operating system and is owned or controlled by you, or as otherwise permitted by the Usage Rules set forth in Apple’s App Store Terms of Service. In addition, you must comply with the terms of any third-party agreement applicable to you when using the Apps, such as your wireless data service agreement. Apple and Apple’s subsidiaries are third-party beneficiaries of this Agreement and, upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce this Agreement against you as a third-party beneficiary thereof; notwithstanding the foregoing, William D Scott’s right to enter into, rescind or terminate any variation, waiver or settlement under this Agreement is not subject to the consent of any third party.
