PRICING, SHIPPING, TAXES AND ORDER ACCEPTANCE
Our goal is to accurately list the price of every product we offer for sale. “In store” prices
may vary from those found on the Website due to various costs factors involved in
product handling. Prices are displayed and denominated in U.S. Dollars. Prices are
subject to change without notice even after you have placed an offer to purchase (order).
If a price is different from what was displayed on the Website, you will be notified that
we have not accepted your offer and at what price, if any, we are willing to accept and
fulfill your order. When placing a bid on an item being offered to the highest bidder, CBE
reserves the right to withdraw the item if the minimum reserve price has not been offered
(Bid). See “Auction Terms and Conditions” for complete details.
Shipping charges are estimated at the time you placed an order but are subject to change.
Additional shipping charges, and other charges, may apply to orders shipped to locations
outside the United States. You will be notified before an order is accepted if there are any
changes to the estimation of shipping charges. Once CBE has accepted your order,
possession of the product will be tendered to a shipping company or the US Postal
Service at which time the risk of loss passes to you. CBE has no further liability for risk
of loss. Claims for damage caused in shipping should be made directly with the shipping
company or US Postal Service.
The charge for the amount of tax due on the purchase, if any, is only an estimate. If CBE
has actual knowledge the amount of tax calculated varies from that which is quoted, you
will be notified. However, while we endeavor to accurately estimate and collect the
correct amount of tax based on jurisdictional authority, you are ultimately responsible for
all applicable taxes, regardless of the amount quoted on the Website. You agree to accept
liability for the tax you owe but not been collected from you.
An offer (order) to purchase a product is accepted when CBE sends you an email
confirming that your order is being prepared to ship or was shipped. The confirmatory
email that follows the placement of the order is only confirmation that the order was
received. CBE expressly conditions the acceptance of all orders. See the section titled,
“Acceptance of ordered expressly conditional” in these Terms and Conditions of Use. If

CBE has no control over, and no liability for any third party websites or materials. CBE
works with a number of partners and affiliates whose websites may be linked with the

partner and affiliate websites, CBE makes no guarantees about the accuracy, content, or
quality of the information provided by such websites, and CBE assumes no responsibility
for unintended, objectionable, inaccurate, misleading, or unlawful content that may reside
on those websites or resulting damage or harm caused by third party websites. Similarly,

state, even though you may have the legal right to purchase the product. You represent
that this additional agreement constitutes valid consideration because you are giving up
your right to purchase a product for which you may have the legal right to do so in
exchange for your use of the Website. If you exceed the scope of the license and purchase
a product that you know or suspect will cause CBE to violate the law you will have
breached this additional agreement. Breach of this additional agreement may cause CBE
damages including but not limited to, fines, penalties, costs and attorneys fees. You will
be liable for damages caused to CBE including but not limited to, expectation damages,
incidental damages, consequential damages, fines, penalties, costs and attorneys fees. If
you do not accept this additional agreement, immediately discontinue your use of the
Website. Your continued use of the Website acknowledges your acceptance of this
ACCEPTANCE OF ORDER EXPRESSELY CONDITIONAL
CBE expressly conditions the acceptance of any order on the following condition. “CBE
will only assent to an offer if the offer is made from a private individual or business for
their lawful personal use, or for the purpose of a lawful resale of a product purchased
from CBE. Offers (orders) made by entities for any other purpose must be disclosed in
writing instead of using the online order system found on the Website.”
You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless CBE, its affiliates, officers, directors,
employees, consultants, agents, and representatives from any and all third party claims,
losses, liability, damages, and/or costs (including reasonable attorney fees and costs)

constitute a waiver of any prior, concurrent, or subsequent breach of the same or any
other provisions hereof, and no waiver shall be effective unless made in writing and
signed by an authorized representative of the waiving party.

or in part, without your consent. You may not assign or delegate any rights or obligations
