No Recommendations or Advice Provided
This Site and any information contained in this Site do not constitute an offer to sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy, any securities and must not be relied upon in connection with any investment decision. Although information and content may be available through the Sites, you should not construe such information and content as expressing the opinions of or endorsement by C. Cretors & Co. or its employees. You alone bear the responsibility of evaluating any information or content available on the Sites. In exchange for using such information or content, you hereby agree to release C. Cretors & Co. from any claim and to not hold C.

In states where C. Cretors & Co. has no physical presence, C. Cretors & Co. is not required to collect and remit sales tax for products and services purchased through the Site. However, many states require that their residents file a sales or use tax return for products or services purchased online. You should consult your state and local tax laws to determine compliance with tax laws and regulations in your geographic area. In some states, C. Cretors & Co. collects and remits sales tax. For purchases where sales tax is applicable, the tax calculated will be reflected on the checkout page before you are asked to confirm the purchase. C. Cretors & Co. uses commercial reasonable efforts to calculate and remit the correct amount of tax required on each taxable purchase, but C. Cretors & Co. does not guarantee the accuracy of the amount of the tax C. Cretors & Co. represents to you as the tax owed.
States generally provide an exemption from sales taxes for many of the products that C. Cretors & Co. sells. However, in order to claim such exemption these states generally require C. Cretors & Co. to receive a current, valid tax exemption certificate prior to each purchase of products that qualify for such exemption. If you register with C. Cretors & Co., you may provide a tax exemption certificate that will be held on file, which you will be required to acknowledge as being valid and current with respect to any purchase that you claim is exempt from sales tax. If the tax exemption certificate is not valid or current, you will be required to update this certificate if you would like to claim a sales tax exemption. C. Cretors & Co. will use commercially reasonable efforts to determine whether an exemption from sales tax is available. However, except as otherwise required under the applicable law, C. Cretors & Co. reserves the right to charge sales tax on each purchase (whether or not a sales tax exemption certificate has been provided previously) unless a current, valid tax exemption certificate has been received immediately prior to the purchase. If C. Cretors & Co. elects to rely on your assurance that a purchase is exempt from sales taxes and you fail to provide to C. Cretors & Co. a valid exemption certificate within 15 days from the date of purchase, you agree to pay, and authorize C. Cretors & Co. to charge your credit card for, the sales taxes C. Cretors & Co. determines to be due.
Minor errors may occur owing to the inability to accurately track multiple taxing districts, state and local “tax holidays,” the timing of rate changes or the application of certain taxes to categories of items advertised on this Site. As a result of any error, C. Cretors & Co. may over collect or under collect the tax. In consideration of C. Cretors & Co. allowing you access to and use of the Site, and in collecting and remitting taxes required on your purchases, you hereby waive your right to claim that the tax collected on any purchase is incorrect in any respect and agree to hold harmless C. Cretors & Co., its officers, directors, employees, agents and representatives (and those of its affiliates), for any harm or other damages you may incur as a result of C. Cretors & Co.’s error in calculating the taxes on your purchases.
Bank And Credit Card Fees
Some banks and credit card companies impose fees for transactions and/or international transactions. If you are making a purchase from outside of the United States on a US credit card, your bank may convert the payment amount to your local currency and charge you a conversion fee. This means the amount listed on your credit or bank card statement may be in your local currency and therefore a different figure than the figure shown on the order summary page for a purchase on this Site. In addition, a foreign transaction fee may be assessed if the bank that issued your credit card is located outside of the United States. The currency exchange rate and foreign transaction fee is determined solely by your bank on the day that they process the transaction. If you have any questions about these fees or the exchange rate applied to your booking, please contact your bank.
