Postings do not reflect the views of Schedgehog or any of its affiliates. In no event shall Schedgehog or any affiliates have or be construed to have any responsibility or liability for or in connection with any Posting whatsoever; provided, however, if we determine, in our sole discretion and judgment, that any Posting does or may violate any of the terms of this Agreement, we reserve the right, at any time and without limiting any and all other rights we may have under this Agreement, at law or in equity, to: (a) refuse to allow you to Post; (b) remove and delete Postings; (c) revoke your right to use the Communities and the Site; and/or (d) use any technological, legal, operational or other means available to us to enforce the provisions of this Agreement, including, without limitation, blocking specific IP addresses or deactivating your registration on Schedgehog and/or the Communities.

The Site may offer various products for sale (collectively “Sale Merchandise”) or resale from third parties (“Resale Merchandise”), or direct or link to other Web sites that sell goods and services (“Linked Merchandise”), all collectively referred to as “Merchandise”. In order to request Merchandise from the Site, you must be at least 18 years-of-age or older or have reached the age of majority in the jurisdiction in which you live or reside. By placing such an order for Merchandise, you represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years-of-age or older or have reached the age of majority in the jurisdiction in which you live or reside. We reserve the right to discontinue Merchandise without notice, even if you have already placed your order. The inclusion of any Merchandise on the Site at a particular time does not imply or warrant that such Merchandise will be available at all times.
All Merchandise prices are shown in U.S. dollars and are valid and effective for all Merchandise ordered through the Site on the day they are ordered. Merchandise is subject to availability and we reserve the right to impose quantity limits on any order, to reject all or part of an order and to discontinue products or services without notice, even if you have already placed your order. All prices are subject to change without notice.
We try to assure the accuracy of all information displayed on the Site, but it is possible that the information contains errors, inaccuracies, or omissions. You accept full responsibility for your use of the Site. In particular, with respect to Merchandise offered on the Site, we have tried to accurately display colors, but depending on the specifications and settings of your computer and its monitor the colors you see might not accurately depict the actual colors of the Merchandise. Minor color variations will not be considered as resulting in Merchandise being deemed defective. In addition, due to typical and very common manufacturing inconsistencies, Merchandise weights and measurements can vary slightly from the specific information set forth on the Site. Minor variations in Merchandise weighs and measurements will not be considered as resulting in Merchandise being deemed defective.
We have no responsibility or liability whatsoever for Resale Merchandise or Linked Merchandise. Moreover, we are not responsible in any manner for assisting you in correcting any problem you may experience with such Resale Merchandise or Linked Merchandise. You agree that your sole and exclusive remedy for defective Resale Merchandise or Linked Merchandiselies with the specific manufacturer, licensor or distributor of the products and not Schedgehog. EXCEPT AS SPECIFICALLY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT, WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY ARISING FROM OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO ANY AND ALL MERCHANDISE. EXCEPT AS SPECIFICALLY SET FORTH IN WRITING, WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF ANY AND EVERY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO ANY AND ALL MERCHANDISE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
You are responsible for any taxes imposed on the sale or use of Merchandise and applicable taxes will be added to the amount charged for Merchandise purchased on the Site.

Malware includes computer viruses, keyloggers, malicious active content, rogue programs, and dialers, among others. While we continuously work closely with our partners to ensure that everything on the Site is working properly, sometimes Malware programs on your personal computer may interfere with your experience on the Site and on other sites that you visit. If you do discover any Malware on your system, we suggest you speak with a qualified computer technician.
