Tech2000 may accept your order by processing your payment and shipping the Product, or may, for any reason, decline to accept your order or any part of your order.

3. Electronic Communication. When you place an order via the Site, you are required to provide a valid email address, which we may use to communicate with you regarding the status of your order, advise you regarding shipment of backordered products, and to provide you with any other notices, disclosures or other communications relating to your order. You agree that Tech2000 will not be responsible for any damage you incur, or information you do not receive, as a result of your failure to provide a valid email address.
4. Pricing and Product Information. Tech2000 purchases all product, componentry or materials directly from its suppliers.
Tech2000 makes every effort to provide current and accurate information relating to the Products and prices, but does not guarantee the currency or accuracy of any such information.

Shipping or freight charges from Tech2000's warehouse are prepaid and added to the invoice, billed collect, or billed to a 3rd party. Our standard policy is to apply insurance for full-invoiced value of merchandise in each parcel, however this is not guaranteed without express and expicit description of amounts to be insured described by your order detail. Items showing a "flat-fee" shipping may actually be reduced, depending on other items in the same carton or a closer shipping address. Final ship cost can only be known at actual ship time since we do NOT penalize some customers with an inflated item price in order to subsidize shipping costs. If a ship cost MUST BE KNOWN IN ADVANCE for a complex order or institutional work, insert the word "$CALL" in the shipping cost column of an order - you will be contacted with the information at order-entry or prior to shipment as-required. Any customizing in an order locks-in ship-cost as a non-cancellable/irrevocable/non-returnable item.
7. Handling Charge. There is no minimum order or handling fee.
8. Sales Tax. Sales tax is charged on shipments in most states that have a sales tax, unless you have tax exempt status and we have your resale certificate. If you have tax-exempt status, you must provide a valid tax exemption certificate evidencing your status at the time of purchase. Tech2000 will not refund tax amounts collected in the event a valid certificate is not provided. If you provide a certificate that is not accepted for any reason by any governmental or regulatory authority, and Tech2000 is required to pay tax on your purchase, you will reimburse Tech2000 for the amount of such tax, and Tech2000's reasonable expenses incurred in connection with the payment and collection of such tax. Fax your resale certificate and your customer number to 419-465-2484, Attention: Sales Tax.
9. Dishonored Checks. If a check you give us for payment is dishonored for any reason by the bank or other institution on which it is drawn, you agree to pay us $20.00 as a service charge (if the check cannot be redeposited) pursuant to Ohio Statutes. In addition, you agree to pay any other reasonable charges imposed by any check verification company or collection agency that we may use for collection.
10. Out of Stock. If product you order is out of stock at time of order placement, you may elect to have it shipped on a subsequent shipment. Additional shipping charges will apply to each shipment. Backorders will be held based on your request.
11. International Orders. In addition to the United States and its territories, Tech2000 accepts international orders. All orders of international origin are exported from the US in accordance with the Export Administration Regulations. Diversion contrary to US Law is prohibited. All duties and taxes will be the responsibility of the customer.
