All items purchased from Nuclear Blast America 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.
9. RETURNS, REFUNDS, AND TITLE
All sales are final. However, if you receive a damaged or defective item, Nuclear Blast America will ship you a replacement of the exact item after the damaged or defective item has been returned. The damaged or defective item must be returned within thirty (30) days of when it was purchased, after which Nuclear Blast America will ship the replacement item within six (6) weeks.

10. PRODUCT DESCRIPTIONS
Nuclear Blast America attempts to be as accurate as possible. However, Nuclear Blast America does not warrant that product descriptions or other content of any Nuclear Blast America Service is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a product offered by Nuclear Blast America is not received as described, at Nuclear Blast America’s sold discretion Nuclear Blast America may allow a refund after the item is returned in unused condition.
All prices are in U.S. currency. Items in your shopping cart will always reflect the most recent price displayed on the item’s product detail page. Please note that this price may differ from the price shown for the item when you first placed it in your cart. Placing an item in your cart does not reserve the price shown at that time. It is also possible that an item's price may decrease between the time you place it in your cart and the time you purchase it.
Some discounts are limited-time offers. Also, as the discount we are able to offer for any item is dependent upon its availability, the price for such discounted items will necessarily change on occasion.
With respect to items sold, Nuclear Blast America 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 Nuclear Blast America discovers a mispricing, it will do one of the following: (1) if an item's correct price is lower than our stated price, Nuclear Blast America will charge the lower amount and ship you the item; or (2) if an item's correct price is higher than stated price, Nuclear Blast America will, at its discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.
Nuclear Blast America will charge your credit card upon your placement of an order.

Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any Nuclear Blast America Service, or to any products or services sold or distributed by Nuclear Blast America or through store.nuclearblast.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.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered California agent: Michael D. Kuznetsky, Kuznetsky Law Group, 2600 W. Olive Avenue, Suite 500, Burbank, CA 91505. 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, Nuclear Blast America 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.
