Brief Reminder About Terms and Return/Refund Policy

Please understand that any and all products are PoP prototype devices, and are sold as experimental research devices only, and with no attendant claims of performance or effect. We have a no-return policy, and so there are no returns accepted and no refunds offered. All sales are final. There are no guarantees or warranties as to performance, effects, results, or workability offered, expressed, or implied. There are no other warranties or guarantees expressed or implied.

Please note that any calls or emails for any consulting purposes must be prepaid. 

If you wish to order any prototype devices, we request that you contact me first to determine prototype availability, permission to order, and exact amount of S/H, prior to placing any order or sending any payments.

Please see full listing of sales terms and conditions reproduced below.

General Terms and Return/Refund Policies

These terms apply to any and all devices shown or offered on any of my websites.

Basics
We cannot sell to residents of Illinois, Indiana, or Maryland.

Remember that we offer no warranty or guarantee, express or implied. All sales are final. No returns, no refunds, no samples, no trade-ins toward later purchases. We do not sell consumer items, but only sell PoP prototype experimental research devices to researchers, engineers, scientists, commercial R&D laboratories and OEMs.

All sales are final. Once placed, orders cannot be cancelled or changed and no refunds are possible.

All orders must be pre-approved and prepaid. We usualy ship most prototype devices within one to two weeks of receipt of cleared payment (i.e. receipt of online payment or after a check or money order clears.) Larger orders or orders for three or more of one type of device may result in longer lead times prior to shipment.

All customers outside USA are responsible for paying any customs fees, broker fees, import duty and any other fees which may be incurred by shipment of products.

These are PoP Prototype Devices; They May Not be "Pretty"
Please understand that any and all products are PoP prototype devices, and are sold as prototype experimental research devices only, and with no attendant claims of performance or effect. All sales are final. We have a no-return policy, and so there are no returns or refunds allowed, accepted or offered; likewise we cannot accept trade-ins of already-purchased prototypes toward purchases of other (i.e., more expensive) prototype models. There are no guarantees or warranties as to performance, effects, results, or workability offered, expressed, or implied. There are no other warranties or guarantees expressed or implied. This is largely because these devices are offered ONLY on a very lmited basis, are not offered on the consumer marketplace, and are offered only as proof of principle (PoP, aka proof of concept) prototypes. In other words these are engineering evaluation prototypes, designed for use by experimenters, researchers, scientists and engineers..

Since these are proof-of-performance prototypes (aka proof of concept prototypes) and each unit has been carefully handcrafted manually and designed and engineered primarily for functionality, and thus they will look as if they were built by hand, complete with variations in appearance and consistency of design or engineering across models and within models; the devices may not be "pretty" from an aesthetic point of view. In other words, these devices are NOT polished consumer-oriented devices produced by automated assembly-line mass-production lines, and rather, are constructed by hand. You must realize that there will be some variance in appearance across devices within the same model, and most of the devices may bear one or more cosmetic blemishes due to the manual nature of the assembly process. Further, these devices bear simple waterproof printed paper labels bearing only text, instead of the fancier multi-colored labels complete with images or logos often found on mass-produced consumer devices. Likewise, if you were to examine the interior of the devices, you will notice considerable variance in appearance and layout even within a model line as we experiment with various methods of component placement, and also due to availability of certain key components. 

Some Brief Notes and Terms for Orders and Shipping Outside USA
Yes, we do ship regularly to countries outside the USA. We ship all outside-US orders via USPS Global Express Mail insured, as it is relatively inexpensive and quite reliable, and even offers a modicum of a tracking number. If you need a quote on S/H charges via USPS Global Express Mail to your country for one or more devices, please just ask and I will send you an exact S/H charge quote via return email. We can also ship to foreign countries via UPS if you ask, but that mode of shipping is considerably more expensive than USPS Global Express Mail. For all outside-USA shipping, we provide a full Customs shipping declaration sheet. Customer bears responsibility for any and all Customs charges or surcharges imposed by Customs or their government agencies.

While we do ship all packages insured, we are responsible for shipping orders only, and once shipped, our responsibility has ended. The customer takes fully responsibility for the package once we have shipped it at our local shipping depot.
