These notice requirements are intended to comply with Mercola.com's rights and obligations under the DMCA and, in particular, 17 U.S.C. § 512(c), and do not constitute or act as a substitute for legal advice.
Mercola.com reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Website as a whole and/or any or all of the Website features, products, prices of products, promotions, services or information appearing on, or available through, any or all of the Website with or without notice to you. You agree that Mercola.com shall not be liable to you or any third-party for any modification or discontinuance of such features, products, prices, services, or information on the Website or the Website itself.
The information contained in the Website is provided for informational purposes only and is not meant to substitute for the advice provided by your doctor or other health care professional. You should not use the information available on or through the Mercola.com Website (including, but not limited to, information that may be provided by healthcare and/or nutrition professionals employed by, or contracting with, Mercola.com) for diagnosing or treating a health problem or disease, or prescribing any medication. Information and statements regarding dietary supplements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration unless specifically so stated. You should carefully read all product packaging prior to use.
It is your responsibility to ascertain and obey all applicable local, state, federal and international laws (including minimum age requirements) in regard to the possession, use and sale of any item purchased from this Website. By placing an order, you represent that the products ordered will be used only in a lawful manner. All DVDs and similar products sold are for private, home use (where no admission fee is charged), non-public performance and may not be duplicated.
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. We reserve the right, without prior notice, to limit the order quantity on any product or service and/or to refuse service to any customer. We also may require verification of information prior to the acceptance and/or shipment of any order.
By placing an order, you authorize Mercola.com to charge the credit card / debit card you provided for your order. If your credit card is declined at the time you place your order, your order will not be accepted and you will be notified that your order payment has failed. Once your payment information is corrected, your order will be placed. If you have received an order without paying for it (e.g. your credit card was cancelled) Mercola.com reserves the right to pursue any/all collection efforts allowed under the law.
For orders paid by check or echeck, if there is an overage amount (check amount is greater than the order's total), Mercola.com will apply the overage amount as store credit to the customer's account once the order has been shipped. If the amount of the overpayment is $5.00 or greater, and the customer makes a written request to Mercola.com for reimbursement of the overpayment, Mercola.com will issue a refund check in lieu of a store credit to the customer. If your check payment has "bounced" or been declined by our Bank, you are liable for paying the Bank's "Bounce Fee", along with your order total before your order will be fulfilled.
If there is an underage amount for any order paid by check (check amount is less than the order's total), Mercola.com has the right to use your store credit to pay for the underage amount, refuse your payment, or ask you to submit an additional payment for the underage amount. If Mercola.com has not received complete payment within two weeks of your order date, your order will be cancelled and payment voided.
All check orders will be placed on-hold until Mercola.com receives full payment and the payment has cleared Mercola.com's bank. Once Mercola.com receives confirmation from the bank that your payment has cleared, your order will be fulfilled.
