4.4. Orders. Your placement of an order made through the Service for HV Biotechnologies products (each, an “Order”) is an offer to purchase the products ordered, and we may accept your Order by processing your payment and shipping the products. Your receipt of an Order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. For any reason, we may decline to accept your Order or any part of your Order. No Order will be considered accepted by HV Biotechnologies until the products have been shipped. If some of the products in your Order are temporarily out of stock, we will ship the available products only and notify you of any products that cannot be fulfilled.

The amount of this pre-authorization hold may be greater or less than the Order total quoted at checkout. However, you will only be charged the final Order total once your Order is registered as complete within the HV Biotechnologies system.
4.6. Returns and Refunds. HV Biotechnologies aims to be as accurate as possible, however, we do not warrant that product descriptions, photographs, videos or other product related content as displayed on the Site or Service are wholly accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free.

The refund will be for the full value paid for the returned items, unless otherwise noted. Shipping fees may be refunded at the discretion of HV Biotechnologies. We may charge a restocking fee with respect to returned items. The amount of the restocking fee, if any, will be provided to you by HV Biotechnologies upon request and may be displayed on the final checkout screen when you complete your Order or noted on the packing list included with your Order.

17.5. Arbitration Fees. If you initiate arbitration for a Claim, you will need to pay the JAMS arbitration initiation fee.
