INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY, SOFTWARE AND CONTENT
The intellectual property rights in all software and content (including photographic images) made available to you on or through this Website remains the property of Granite, or its licensors, and are protected by copyright laws and treaties around the world. All such rights are reserved by Granite and its licensors. You may store, print and display the content supplied solely for your own personal use.

TERMS OF SALE
By placing an order, you are offering to purchase a product and subject to the following Terms of Sale. All orders are subject to availability and confirmation of the order price.
Dispatch times may vary according to availability and subject to any delays resulting from postal delays or force majeure for which we will not be responsible.
In order to contract with Granite you must be over 18 years of age and possess a valid credit or debit card issued by a bank acceptable to us. Granite retains the right to refuse any request made by you. If your order is accepted we will inform you by email and we will confirm the identity of the party for which you have contracted with. This will usually be Granite or may in some cases be a third party. Where a contract is made with a third party, Granite is not acting as either agent or principal and the contract is made between yourself and that third party and will be subject to the Terms of Sale which they supply you. When placing an order you undertake that all details you provide to us are true and accurate, that you are an authorized user of the credit or debit card used to place your order and that there are sufficient funds to cover the cost of the goods. All prices advertised are subject to such changes.
When you place an order, you will receive an acknowledgement e-mail confirming receipt of your order. This email will only be an acknowledgement and will not constitute acceptance of your order. A contract between us will not be formed until we send you confirmation by e-mail that the goods to which you ordered have been dispatched to you. Only those goods listed in the confirmation e-mail sent at the time of dispatch will be included in the contract formed.
PRICING AND AVAILABILITY
While we try and ensure that all details, descriptions and prices that appear on this Website are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of any goods for which you have ordered, we will inform you of this as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you we will treat the order as cancelled. If you cancel and you have already paid for the goods, you will receive a full refund.
Delivery costs will be charged in addition to the price of goods, and such additional charges are clearly displayed where applicable and included in the ‘Total Cost’.
Upon receiving your order we carry out a standard authorization check on your payment card to ensure there are sufficient funds to fulfill the transaction. Your card will be debited upon authorization being received. The monies received upon the debiting of your card shall be treated as a deposit against the value of the goods you wish to purchase. Once the goods have been dispatched and you have been sent a confirmation email, the monies paid as a deposit shall be used as consideration for the value of goods you have purchased, as listed in the confirmation email.
The charges on your credit card statement will reflect that the payment is made to Granite Supplements. It may appear on your actual statement, depending on which payment method you use, as Granite Supplements, GRANITESUPP, or some derivation thereof.

ARBITRATION; CLASS ACTION WAIVER
In any claim, action or proceeding to enforce any right or obligation of the parties under these Terms of Service including, without limitation, relating to your use of our Services, you hereby waive any right you may now have or hereafter possess to a trial by jury. You agree to resolve any dispute which may have arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service in good faith mediation. In the event no mutual agreement is made under mediation within sixty (60) days of notice of such dispute, you have the right to resolve such dispute via arbitration before a single arbitrator pursuant to then current Commercial Rules of the American Arbitration Association (AAA). The arbitrator may award any relief available under applicable law including but not limited to an award of attorneys’ fees, this agreement to arbitrate does not interfere with either your or Granite’s right to file a claim with a state or federal agency with jurisdiction thereof to the extent permitted by applicable law. Even if allowed under AAA rules, no class or collective action or arbitration may be brought against Granite hereunder unless required by applicable law. If either you or Granite intends to seek arbitration under these Terms of Service, the party seeking arbitration must first notify the other party of the dispute in writing at least 30 days in advance of initiating the arbitration. Notice to Granite should be sent as required by these Terms of Service. The notice must describe the nature of the claim and the relief being sought. If you and Granite are unable to resolve our dispute within 30 days, either party may then proceed to file a claim for arbitration. The arbitration, information produced, and pre-and post-hearing proceedings will be confidential and any award shall not be used in any other case except to enforce the award itself.
If you breach these conditions and we take no action, we will still be entitled to use our rights and remedies in any other situation where you breach these conditions.
The above Terms of Service constitute the entire agreement of the parties and supersede any and all preceding and contemporaneous agreements between you and granitesupplements.com. Any waiver of any provision of the Terms of Service will be effective only if in writing and signed by a Director of Granite.
