Terms of Service

 

Upstream Hemp’s Terms of Service (“Terms of Service”), a legal agreement between you and Upstream Hemp (“we”, “us”, “our”), governs your interaction on Upstreamhemp.com and other Upstream Hemp services (collectively, the “Site”), as well as your purchases and use of products made available through the Site. By using the Site, you signify that you have read, understood and agreed to be bound by these Terms of Service. Also, with your use of the Site, you express agreement to our use of your personal information and content in accordance with our Privacy Policy which is incorporated herein for reference.

We reserve the right to modify and update the Terms of Service at any time as we see fit, and these modifications to the Terms of Service shall be in effect once we post a temporary notice in the footer of our Site. Your continued use of the Site shall be considered as acknowledgement and acceptance of the revisions made to the Terms of Service.

Moreover, we reserve the right to make modifications to the Site (including, without limitation, removing or making areas of the Site unavailable from time to time for maintenance) without prior notice to you any time we see fit.

Additional Terms and Conditions

Certain purchases, site interactions, and use of services may be subject to additional terms and conditions (in addition to those previously stated in the Terms of Service) by which you are expected to abide. These additional terms and conditions will be clearly communicated to you before you purchase a product, commit to an interaction or avail a service. In the event that you are not informed of these additional terms and conditions which results into your failure to abide, we reserve the right to cancel/terminate any purchase, site request or provision of service.

Orders and Payment

All orders placed through the Site are subject to our approval. We may refuse to accept, or cancel any order, whether or not it has been confirmed, for any or no reason, and without liability to you or anyone else. This may occur when the product/booking is no longer available or has been mispriced, when we suspect fraud, and when, in certain circumstances, we deem it to be necessary in our sole discretion. If your credit card has already been charged for an order that we later on cancel, we will issue you a refund if the cancellation was not due to a violation of our Terms of Service.

Sales Tax

Sales tax will be added to orders when applicable. It will be displayed during checkout along with the other pricing information that pertains to your order.

Product Availability

Because the amount of our in-stock inventory for our products changes significantly by the hour, we do not guarantee that items listed as “in-stock” can be shipped to you right away. In some rare instances, a product may be “in-stock” when you place an order, but gets sold out before we are able to process your order. When this occurs, you will be notified immediately via email, and the item will be cancelled from your order.

Generally, items that are out-of-stock are no longer available. When an item is back in stock, we will update the status of the item immediately.

Product Descriptions

With utmost diligence, we attempt to provide the most accurate descriptions of the products and services available on our Site.

However, we cannot always ensure that the product information posted on the Site are 100% accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free, and we shall not be held liable should there be any factual errors or missing/incomplete/outdated information in the product descriptions.

Pricing

We do not claim nor guarantee that we offer the best available rates for the products and services available on the Site. Also, while we try to provide accurate pricing information, we cannot ensure that occasional pricing errors or changes will not occur. Therefore, we reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to cancel any product order placed on the Site if the price of the product was incorrectly provided to you as a result of an error. In such instances, we will notify you by email and correct the price on the Site.

Shipping and Returns

For information on shipping, tax and return policies, review our Shipping Policy and Returns Policy. Please note that our shipping, tax and return policies are updated accordingly from time to time.
