TERMS OF SERVICE (Last updated MAY 24, 2018)
1. ACCOUNT; LICENSE TO SERVICE; PURCHASE OF PRODUCTS
1.1 Account. Upon registration of the End User’s user account, the End User affirms its acceptance to these Terms of Service and confirms that it has read and accepted these Terms of Service. These Terms of Service will apply to each order that the End User places through the Service. Blogger Republik may, at any time and without notice, modify these Terms of Service by revising them on the website. Any purchases made after the date of any such modification shall be controlled by the modified version. End User should therefore periodically visit this page to review the current Terms of Service. End User may not modify these Terms of Service except in a writing signed by Blogger Republik.
1.2 Limited License to Use the Service. Subject to End-User’s compliance with the terms and conditions of these Terms of Service, Blogger Republik hereby grants to End-User a limited, personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable, license to access and use the Service solely for the purposes of purchasing Products from Blogger Republik. Except for the licenses and rights expressly granted under these Terms of Service, no licenses or rights are granted by Blogger Republik to End-User hereunder, by implication, estoppel or otherwise. All such other licenses and rights are reserved unto Blogger Republik. End-User shall not (i) copy or modify the Service for any purpose; (ii) reverse engineer, decompile, modify, translate, disassemble or discover the source code for all or any portion of the Service; or (iii) distribute, disclose, market, rent, lease or otherwise transfer the Service to any other person or entity.
1.3 Product Sales. An order to purchase Products placed through the Service is binding on the End User. Blogger Republik reserves the right to decline any order. The End User is aware that the Service will submit online queries to Blogger Republik order management system and that information provided to the End User in reply is valid only at the actual time the query is submitted. Consequently, the information may change in the meantime between the query and the delivery of the Product. Furthermore, the End User’s user account may have been subject to restrictions with respect to credit limits and/or quantity of purchases. Any order in excess of such limits will automatically be rejected by Blogger Republik. Blogger Republik aims to meet the delivery times provided to the End User after an order has been placed. However, Blogger Republik reserves the right to adjust the delivery time for the entire or parts of any order. If an End User wishes not to complete a purchase because of such an adjusted delivery time, then the End User is entitled to cancel the order with respect to the delayed part. Cancellations must be notified without undue delay. The right to cancel is the only and exclusive remedy available to the End User because of delays.
2.1 Payment. Full payment for any Products and Services shall be made by End-User to Blogger Republik through the payment method established in your user profile. You hereby authorize Blogger Republik to charge you the applicable fees specified in your order using such payment method.
2.2 Taxes. The fees specified in the order do not include any foreign, federal, state or local sales, use, value added, or other similar taxes, however designated, levied against the licensing, delivery or use of the Service. End-User shall pay, or reimburse Blogger Republik for, all such taxes imposed on End-User or Blogger Republik, provided, however, that End-User shall not be liable for any taxes based on Blogger Republik's net income.

4.3 Limitations of Liability. IN NO EVENT SHALL Blogger Republik BE LIABLE FOR LOST PROFITS OR BUSINESS, LOSS OF GOODWILL, LOSS OF DATA, INTERRUPTION OF BUSINESS, OR FOR ANY EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH DAMAGES ARISE UNDER ANY THEORY OF TORT, CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH PARTY IS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF ANY SUCH DAMAGES. The aggregate liability of Blogger Republik for any and all claims arising under or in connection with these Terms of Service or its subject matter shall not exceed the amounts paid by End-User for the Service or Product that is subject to the dispute during the twelve (12) month period prior to when such claim arose.

7.5 Quality Assurance. All missing or damaged items must be reported within 7 days of delivery to qualify for a replacement or refund based on product availability.

We reserve the right to consider an item not damaged.
