RISK OF LOSS
All purchases of physical items from Think AF are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier.
RETURNS, REFUNDS AND TITLE
For information about our returns and refunds, please see our Refund Policy.
Think AF attempts to be as accurate as possible. However, Think AF does not warrant that product descriptions or other content of any Think AF Service is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a product offered by Think AF 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 on metaCollege and other retailers. Certain products may have a "Was Price" displayed, which is determined using recent price history of the product on Think AF.
With respect to items sold by Think AF, 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. If the correct price of an item sold by Think AF 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. Other merchants may follow different policies in the event of a mispriced item.
You enter into a legally binding contract to purchase an item when you commit to buy an item or your offer for an item is accepted

As described in our User Privacy Notice, Think AF LLC may collect other telephone numbers for you and may place manual non-marketing calls to any of those numbers and autodialed non-marketing calls to any landline. Standard telephone minute and text charges may apply and may include overage fees if you have exceeded your plan limits.
When you use apps created by Think AF, you may grant certain permissions to us for your device. Most mobile devices provide you with information about these permissions.
SANCTIONS AND EXPORT POLICY
You may not use any Think AF Service 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 Think AF Services. You must comply with all U.S. or other export and re-export restrictions that may apply to goods, software, technology, and services.
Parties other than Think AF operate stores, provide services or software, or sell product lines through the Think AF Services. In addition, we provide links to the sites of affiliated companies and certain other businesses. 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). Think AF 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 other conditions of use.
DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
The Think AF services and all information, content, materials, products (including software) and other services included on or otherwise made available to you through the Think AF services are provided by Think AF on an "as is" and "as available" basis, unless otherwise specified in writing. Think AF makes no representations or warranties of any kind, express or implied, as to the operation of the Think AF services, or the information, content, materials, products (including software) or other services included on or otherwise made available to you through the Think AF services, unless otherwise specified in writing. You expressly agree that your use of the Think AF services is at your sole risk.
To the full extent permissible by law, Think AF disclaims all warranties, express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. Think AF does not warrant that the Think AF services, information, content, materials, products (including software) or other services included on or otherwise made available to you through the Think AF services, Think AF's servers or electronic communications sent from Think AF are free of viruses or other harmful components. To the full extent permissible by law, Think AF will not be liable for any damages of any kind arising from the use of any Think AF service, or from any information, content, materials, products (including software) or other services included on or otherwise made available to you through any Think AF service, including, but not limited to direct, indirect, incidental, punitive, and consequential damages, unless otherwise specified in writing.
Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any Think AF Service, or to any products or services sold or distributed by Think AF or through metaCollege.com will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.
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 of Use as a court would.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent Northwest Registered Agent, LLC., 90 State Street, STE 700 Office 40, Albany, NY 12207. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, Think AF will not seek attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.
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 any Think AF Service, you agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the state of New York, 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 Think AF.
