Risk of Loss
All products purchased from the Website are transported and delivered to you by an independent carrier not affiliated with, or controlled by, SwimSpot . Title to products purchased on the Website, as well as the risk of loss for such products, passes to you when SwimSpot delivers these items to the carrier.
The Order Process
You will have the opportunity to review and confirm your order, including delivery address (if applicable), payment method and product details. We will send you a notice when we accept your order and our acceptance will be deemed complete, and for all purposes to have been effectively communicated to you, at the time we send the notice. At such time, the contract for sale will be made and become binding on both you and us.
We reserve the right to refuse or cancel any order prior to delivery. Some situations that may result in your order being cancelled include system or typographical errors, inaccuracies in product or pricing information or product availability, fairness among customers where supplies are limited, or problems identified by our credit or fraud departments. We also may require additional verification or information before accepting an order. We will contact you if any portion of your order is cancelled or if additional information is required to accept your order. If your order is cancelled after we have processed your payment but prior to delivery, we will refund your payment.

SwimSpot may revise the pricing for products we offer. Unless otherwise stated, the prices displayed on the Website are quoted in U.S. Dollars.
When you place your order, we estimate the tax and include that estimate in the total for your convenience. The actual tax amount that will be applied to your order and charged to your payment method is based on calculations on the date of shipment, regardless of when the order was placed.
When ordering goods for delivery to countries other than the United States, you may have to pay import duties and taxes levied. These and any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you. SwimSpot does not collect duties and taxes and cannot predict what your particular charges may be; and in the event you incur these additional charges, they must be rendered in order for your package to clear customs. For goods shipped internationally, please note that any manufacturer warranty may not be valid; instructions and safety warnings may not be in destination country languages; and the goods and accompanying materials may not be designed in accordance with destination country standards, specifications, and labeling requirements. You are responsible for assuring the goods can be lawfully imported to the destination country. When ordering from SwimSpot, the recipient is the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the destination country.
For questions about international shipping, please contact your local customs office.
SwimSpot attempts to be accurate in describing its products. We do not warrant that product descriptions or other content of the Website are complete, reliable, current, or error-free.

Applicable Law and Disputes
All matters relating to this Agreement and the Website and any dispute or claim arising therefrom or related thereto (in each case, including non-contractual disputes or claims) will be governed by the laws of the United States of America and the State of California, without regard to principles of conflicts of law and as if this Agreement were a contract wholly entered into and wholly performed within the State of California. This Agreement will not be governed by the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.
Any dispute relating in any way to this Agreement, your visit to SwimSpot or SwimSpot’s Website, or to products you purchase through SwimSpot shall be submitted to confidential arbitration in Orange County, California, United States of America, except disputes relating to the enforcement of SwimSpot’s intellectual property rights. Any action at law or in equity that is not subject to arbitration will be filed in any state or federal court in Orange County, California, United States of America, and you consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts. You waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over you by such courts and to venue in such courts.
An arbitrator’s decision shall be final and binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. YOU ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE A DISPUTE IN COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration under this Agreement shall be joined to an arbitration involving any other party subject to this Agreement, whether through class arbitration proceedings or otherwise.
Class Action Waiver
PROCEEDINGS TO RESOLVE OR LITIGATE A DISPUTE IN ANY FORUM WILL BE CONDUCTED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. Neither you nor SwimSpot will seek to have a dispute heard as a class action, private attorney general action, or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. No arbitration or proceeding can be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to the arbitration or proceeding. If the class action waiver is found to be illegal or unenforceable as to all or some parts of a dispute, those parts will be severed and proceed in a court of law, with the remaining parts proceeding in arbitration.
Limitation on Filing Claims
ANY CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE WEBSITE MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES, OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.

A printed version of this Agreement and of any notice given in electronic form will be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this Agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.
The failure of SwimSpot to enforce any provision of this Agreement or respond to a breach by you or other parties will not in any way waive its right to enforce such provision or any other terms or conditions of this Agreement. If SwimSpot waives any provision of this Agreement, such waiver will not be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such provision or any other provision.
If any provision in this Agreement is invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect, and the invalid unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision.
