The sale contract is therefore concluded in the State of New York, USA, and the language of the contract is English.

We reserve the right not to accept your order in the event, for example, that we are unable to obtain authorization for payment, that shipping restrictions apply to a particular item, that the item ordered is out of stock or does not satisfy our quality control standards and is withdrawn, or that you do not meet the eligibility criteria set-out within the Terms of Use.

Furthermore, we may refuse to process a transaction for any reason or refuse service to anyone at any time at our sole discretion.
