You may post reviews, comments, photos, videos, and other content and communications; and submit suggestions, ideas, comments, questions, or other information, so long as the content is not illegal, obscene, threatening, defamatory, invasive of privacy, infringing of intellectual property rights (including publicity rights), or otherwise injurious to third parties or objectionable, and does not consist of or contain software viruses, political campaigning, commercial solicitation, chain letters, mass mailings, or any form of “spam” or unsolicited commercial electronic messages. You may not use a false e-mail address, impersonate any person or entity, or otherwise mislead as to the origin of a card or other content. Crown Source reserves the right (but not the obligation) to remove or edit such content, but does not regularly review posted content.
If you do post content or submit material, and unless we indicate otherwise, you grant Crown Source a nonexclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, and fully sublicensable right to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, perform, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, and display such content throughout the world in any media.

You represent and warrant that you own or otherwise control all of the rights to the content that you post; that the content is accurate; that use of the content you supply does not violate this policy and will not cause injury to any person or entity; and that you will indemnify Crown Source for all claims resulting from content you supply. Crown Source has the right but not the obligation to monitor and edit or remove any activity or content. Crown Source takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any content posted by you or any third party.
RISK OF LOSS
All purchases of physical items from Crown Source are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon delivery from the Crown Source supplier.
RETURNS, REFUNDS AND TITLE
Crown Source does not take title to returned items.
Crown Source attempts to be as accurate as possible. However, Crown Source does not warrant that product descriptions or other content of CrownConnect is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a product offered by Crown Source itself is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition.
“List Price” means the suggested retail price of a product as provided by a manufacturer, supplier, or seller. We regularly check List Prices against prices recently found at other retailers.
With respect to items purchased through CrownConnect, we cannot confirm the price of an item until you order. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items in our catalog may be mispriced.
SANCTIONS AND EXPORT POLICY
You may not use CrownConnect if you are the subject of U.S. sanctions or of sanctions consistent with U.S. law imposed by the governments of the country where you are using CrownConnect. You must comply with all U.S. or other export and re-export restrictions that may apply to goods, software (including CrownConnect), technology, and services.
Parties other than Crown Source sell products and services through CrownConnect. In addition, we may provide links to the sites operated by third parties. Regardless of our affiliation with such a third party, we are not responsible for examining or evaluating, and we do not warrant, the offerings of any of these businesses or individuals (including the content of their Web sites). Crown Source does not assume any responsibility or liability for the actions, product, and content of all these and any other third parties. You should carefully review their privacy statements and conditions of use governing their sites and services.
DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
CROWNCONNECT AND ALL INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) AND OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH CROWNCONNECT ARE PROVIDED BY CROWN SOURCE ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING. CROWN SOURCE MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE OPERATION OF THE CROWNCONNECT, OR THE INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH CROWNCONNECT, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING. YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF CROWNCONNECT IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK.
TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, CROWN SOURCE DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. CROWN SOURCE DOES NOT WARRANT THAT CROWNCONNECT, INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH CROWNCONNECT, TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, CROWN SOURCE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING FROM THE USE OF ANY CROWN SOURCE SERVICE, OR FROM ANY INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH CROWNCONNECT, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless us and our affiliates, and our and their respective officers, directors, employees, representatives and agents against any loss, claim, damage, settlement, cost, expense, tax or other liability (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees) (each a “Claim”) arising from or related to (a) any breach of the Conditions, or (b) your negligence or willful misconduct. You will use counsel reasonably satisfactory to us to defend each indemnified Claim. If at any time we reasonably determine that any indemnified Claim might adversely affect us, we may take control of the defense at our expense. You may not consent to the entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement of a Claim without our prior written consent, which may not be unreasonably withheld.
Any dispute between the parties arising out of these Conditions (including formation, performance, breach, enforceability, and validity of this Agreement) or our operation of CrownConnect shall be settled by final and binding arbitration in the English language in the City of Overland Park, Kansas, in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association, and judgment on any award rendered upon arbitration may be ordered in any court having requisite jurisdiction. The costs of such arbitration shall be shared equally by the parties hereto; provided, however, notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, each party shall bear the full cost of any legal, accounting, expert witness or other consultant retained by that party on its own behalf.
Without prejudice to the agreement to resolve disputes in binding arbitration set forth in the previous paragraph, either party to these Conditions may obtain preliminary injunctive relief in the Johnson County District Court, Johnson County, Kansas, located in the City of Olathe, Kansas, for the purpose of enforcing any of these Terms pending a final determination in arbitration or permanent relief for the purpose of enforcing arbitral awards.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Conditions as a court would.
We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
By using CrownConnect, you agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the state of Kansas, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Conditions of Use and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and Crown Source.

- If any portion of these Conditions is ruled invalid or otherwise unenforceable, these Conditions shall be deemed amended in order to achieve as closely as possible the same effect as originally drafted.

- No Third Party Beneficiaries. Nothing in these Conditions will confer upon any person, other than the parties, any rights, remedies, obligations, or liabilities whatsoever.
