3. Prohibitions on Use
All items purchased from ActiveBass.com are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon delivery to the carrier.
ActiveBass.com and its affiliates attempt to be as accurate as possible. However, ActiveBass.com does not warrant that product descriptions or other content of this site is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a product offered by ActiveBass.com itself is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition.
Except where noted otherwise, the List Price displayed for products on our website represents the full retail price listed on the product itself, suggested by the manufacturer or supplier, or estimated in accordance with standard industry practice; or the estimated retail value for a comparably featured item offered elsewhere. The List Price is a comparative price estimate and may or may not represent the prevailing price in every area on any particular day. For certain items that are offered as a set, the List Price may represent "open-stock" prices, which means the aggregate of the manufacturer's estimated or suggested retail price for each of the items included in the set.
With respect to items sold by ActiveBass.com, we cannot confirm the price of an item until you order; however, we do NOT charge your credit card until after your order has entered the shipping process. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items in our catalog may be mispriced. If an item's correct price is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.
