COPYRIGHT COMPLAINTS

FPA respects the intellectual property of others. If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please submit a report in writing to fpa@floridapurchasingagency.com please provide us with this information:

  • A physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest;
  • A description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed upon;
  • A description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the site;
  • Your address, telephone number, and e-mail address;
  • A statement by you that you have a good-faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law;
  • A statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner's behalf.

Please note that this procedure is exclusively for notifying FPA that your copyrighted material has been infringed.

RISK OF LOSS

All items purchased from Aisra 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.

RETURNS, REFUNDS AND TITLE

FPA does not take title to returned items until the item arrives at our fulfillment center. At our discretion, a refund may be issued without requiring a return. In this situation, FPA does not take title to the refunded item. For more information about our returns and refunds, please see our Return policy.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTIONS

FPA attempts to be as accurate as possible. However, FPA does not warrant that product descriptions or other content of any FPA Service is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a product offered by Aisra itself is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition.

PRICING

Except where noted otherwise, the List Price or Suggested Price displayed for products on any Aisra Service represents the full retail price listed on the product itself, suggested by the manufacturer or supplier, or estimated in accordance with standard industry practice; or the estimated retail value for a comparably featured item offered elsewhere. The List Price or Suggested Price is a comparative price estimate and may or may not represent the prevailing price in every area on any particular day. For certain items that are offered as a set, the List Price or Suggested Price may represent "open-stock" prices, which means the aggregate of the manufacturer's estimated or suggested retail price for each of the items included in the set. Where an item is offered for sale by one of our merchants, the List Price or Suggested Price may be provided by the merchant.

With respect to items sold by FPA , we 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 the correct price of an item sold by FPA is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation. Other merchants may follow different policies in the event of a mispriced item. If the displayed price is less than the actual price, FPA will void the purchase and attempt to contact you via either phone or email to inquire if you would like the item for the correct price.

We generally charge your credit card when the order is placed, even if the item is on backorder.

Independent Vendors

Parties other than Aisra provide services, or sell product lines on this site. In addition, we provide links to the sites of affiliated companies and certain other businesses. We are not responsible for examining or evaluating, and we do not warrant the offerings of, any of these businesses or individuals or the content of their Web sites. FPA does not assume any responsibility or liability for the actions, product, and content of all these and any other third parties. You should carefully review their privacy statements and other Terms of Use.

FPA relies upon a network of independent vendors who supply some of the goods advertised on the Site and in some cases, drop ship them directly to the member. Independent Vendors are solely responsible for the content of advertisements and the goods that they sell through the Site. Without limitation, Aisra is not liable for any infringement of copyrights, trademarks, trade dress or other proprietary or intellectual property rights arising out of content posted on or transmitted through the Site, or items advertised on the Site, by our vendors, even if appearing on the Site or in emails from us. Nothing on the Site shall be deemed to confer on any person any license or right on the part of FPA or any supplier with respect to any such image, logo or name.

You agree to cooperate as fully as reasonably required in the defense of any claim. Aisra reserves the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you.

We may alter, suspend, or discontinue this Site in whole or in part, at any time and for any reason, without notice or cost. We may in our sole discretion, terminate or suspend your use or access to all or part of the Site, or your account or membership for any reason, including without limitation, breach of these Terms of Use.

DISPUTES

Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any FPA Service, or to any products or services sold or distributed by FPA or through FloridaPurchasingAgency.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.

There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Terms of Use as a court would.

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. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.

APPLICABLE LAW

By using any FPA Service, you agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the state of Florida, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms of Use and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and FPA.

SITE POLICIES, MODIFICATION, AND SEVERABILITY

Please review our other policies posted on this site. These policies also govern your use of FPA Services. We reserve the right to make changes to our site, policies, Service Terms, and these Terms of Use at any time. If any of these conditions shall be deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that condition shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining condition.

Miscellaneous

Unless otherwise specified herein, these Terms of Use, together with the Privacy Policy, constitute the entire agreement between you and FPA with respect to the Site and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals (whether oral, written, or electronic) between you and FPA with respect to the Site. If any part of these Terms of Use is held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed in a manner consistent with applicable law to reflect, as nearly as possible the original intentions of the parties, and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect. The failure of FPA to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive FPA's right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. FPA's failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. The section headings contained in these Terms of Use are included for convenience only and shall not limit or otherwise affect the terms of these Terms of Use. These Terms of Use, and any rights and licenses granted under these Terms of Use, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by us without restriction. We will not be liable to you for any delay or failure to perform any obligation we have under these Terms of Use if the delay or failure is due to events which are beyond our reasonable control, including but not limited to any strike, blockade, war, act of terrorism, riot, natural disaster, failure or diminishment of power or of telecommunications or data networks or services, or refusal of approval or a license by a government agency.
