You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Forge Hemp Company LLC, its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, employees, agents, suppliers, contractors, licensors, and service and content providers (hereinafter known as the “Indemnified Parties”) from and against all losses, expenses, damages, and costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, resulting from any violation of these Terms and Conditions or any activity related to your account (including negligent or wrongful conduct) by you or any person accessing the site using your account.  You also agree to indemnify and hold the Indemnified Parties harmless from and against any claims brought by third parties arising out of your use of the information accessed from this site.

In no event shall any indemnified parties be liable for any actual, consequential, incidental, direct, indirect, punitive, exemplary, special, or other damages, including without limitation loss of revenue or income, profits, value or use, pain and suffering, or similar damages, even if the company has been advised of the possibility of such damages. No person is authorized on behalf of Forge to give any other representations, or to modify or extend the limited warranties provided on this website, or to assume any other liability in connection with this website or the products offered for sales by Forge. In no event shall the collective or total liability of the indemnified parties to any party for any claim (regardless of the form of action, whether in contract, warranty, tort or otherwise, excluding willful misconduct or gross negligence) exceed the price paid for the product or service which gives rise to such claim.

Forge shall not, under any circumstances, be liable for any use of, or the inability to use, the materials on this site.

Applicable law may restrict the use or extent of limitations or exclusions to liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the foregoing limitations and exclusions may not apply in full to you. Nonetheless, in no event will Forge’s liability for products purchased from this site exceed the price paid for such products, including any shipping and handling charges.

THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) Disclaimer

Forge’s topical products (lotions, creams, gels and balm) contain CBD isolate which has been third-party tested to contain zero tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

Whole hemp flower sold by Forge is a natural product that contains trace amount of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).  The amount of THC in our raw hemp flower never exceeds 0.3% concentration by weight, per state and federal regulations and definitions of industrial hemp. While it is unlikely that one would fail a traditional drug test from using our products, that possibility cannot be ruled out. Taking excessive amounts of industrial hemp products, the type or method of drug test utilized, and an employer’s or organization’s requirements and policies, among other things, are factors that may influence drug test results. By agreeing to these Terms and Conditions and placing an order with us, you are indicating that you understand that failing a drug test is a possibility when using industrial hemp products, and that you waive the right to make a claim against Forge for any matters related to any drug test you take or the results of any such drug test, including the loss of employment or any employment opportunity or the imposition of a civil or criminal penalty.

Local Jurisdictions/Buyer’s Compliance with Applicable Laws

Forge makes no representations that the products available through this website will be available or appropriate in every jurisdiction in which this website may be accessed. To the best of Forge’s knowledge, it operates legally under both state and federal law in the United States; however, it is impossible for Forge to be aware of the laws and regulations of all local jurisdictions (e.g. municipalities and counties) relating to industrial hemp-derived products. Forge isn’t responsible for any potential legal matters that may arise due to such local regulations.

You are solely responsible for compliance with any laws governing the purchase and use of the products available through Forge’s website or a website linked to Forge’s website. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY AS THE PURCHASER AND/OR USER, NOT FORGE’S, TO ASCERTAIN AND OBEY ALL APPLICABLE LOCAL, STATE, AND FEDERAL LAWS REGARDING THE POSSESSION AND USE OF ANY ITEM OR PRODUCT OFFERED BY FORGE OR BY A WEBSITE LINKED TO FORGE’S WEBSITE.  IF YOU ARE UNSURE, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR LOCAL OR STATE AUTHORITIES BEFORE PLACING AN ORDER. BY PLACING AN ORDER, YOU INDICATE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE. It is your sole responsibility as buyer to determine if industrial hemp derived products are legal according to the laws that apply to you and represent and warrant that you have read this disclaimer and that all products purchased will be used in a lawful manner and that you are of legal age to purchase and use such products.

You understand and agree that the limitations on liability set forth above apply to the foregoing.

Warranty Disclaimer

Forge warrants that all Forge products purchased on this site, at the time of shipment, will not be adulterated, and will contain the ingredients specified for the products as labeled.

Forge makes no warranty with respect to products, services or this website that is not set forth in writing in these terms and conditions, and specifically disclaims and excludes, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, any and all other representations and warranties of any kind, express or implied, arising by operation of law or otherwise, including, but not limited to, any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. The remedies provided in these terms and conditions are exclusive, and Forge expressly and specifically disclaims, and customer irrevocably waives the right to seek, all other remedies.

Forge does not make any warrantees or representations regarding the use of the materials in this site in terms of their correctness, accuracy, adequacy, usefulness, timeliness, reliability or otherwise.

Prices and Taxes

Prices listed on this website for products or services, unless otherwise noted, are exclusive of shipping charges, and of any applicable value-added, sales, use, excise, transfer, transport, or other tax of any sort imposed by any government authority (“Taxes”).  Customers are solely responsible for all Taxes payable in connection with the purchase of products or services.

Product Availability; Orders

All purchases through our website are subject to product availability.

We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to refuse orders. If we believe that an order is false or fraudulent, we may cancel the order and reserve the right to inform the relevant authorities.

Payments

If a payment is not successfully settled, due to invalid payment method, declined credit, expiration, insufficient funds or otherwise, we reserve the right to cancel your order. Orders are shipped only after receipt of full payment. For certain payment methods, you may be charged a processing fee; you are solely responsible for the payment of all such fees.  Check with your payment method service provider for details.  Forge’s Terms and Conditions, including, without limitation, the provisions regarding limitation of liability and indemnification, apply with respect to payment methods and payment processing, and Forge is not responsible for any charges, errors or losses that may result from any payment method used by you for the purchase of our products.

Typographical and Inadvertent Errors

In the event that a Forge product is mistakenly listed at an incorrect price, Forge reserves the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for that at the incorrect price, whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit card charged.  If your credit card has been charged for the purchase and your order is canceled, Forge shall issue a credit in the amount of the incorrect price charged to you.

Promotion and Coupon Codes

Multiple coupon codes cannot be used simultaneously. When buying bulk volume through the website for special tiered discounts, no coupon code can be used.

Shipping & Delivery

We generally ship items within one or two business days of our receipt and acceptance of an order. If there is a delay affecting our ability to ship generally, we will attempt to conspicuously post that fact on this site.

We fill orders using United States Postal Service Priority Mail and United Parcel Service, which generally results in delivery within two to three days. Requests for use of a courier service or for overnight shipping cannot be processed on this website; however, we generally can accommodate these requests if you place your order by email to info@forgehemp.com. Forge requires a signature at delivery for all orders with a value of $250 or more.

Unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing, TIME IS NOT OF THE ESSENCE, and any delivery date requested or provided is an estimate only. Forge is not responsible for delays or for non-performance resulting from causes beyond its reasonable control, including without limitation laws, rules, regulations or acts of any government, embargoes, blockades, armed conflict, terrorism, labor disputes, delays of carriers or suppliers, shortages of material, accidents, fires, floods, weather conditions and any other acts of God.

Returns/Refunds Policy

We understand that you may need to return a product. Should you feel the need to do so, you have 30 days from the date of purchase to initiate the process. Please contact us at info@forgehemp.com and a representative will be happy to assist you.

Limited to one return or exchange per customer. We do not take returns based on smell or flavor. We typically process approved return/refund requests within 1-2 business days.

If your product was purchased through a Forge Hemp Company distributor or retailer, you will need to go back to your original purchase location for any return or exchange.

Lost Packages

If a package is lost after we ship it, Forge will not be responsible if the tracking information lists the order as “delivered,” which means UPS or the courier service delivered the product to the address specified. If the package is sent to an address other than the one you specified, upon return of the original package to Forge, Forge will reship the order. Please note that Forge is not responsible for errors of USPS or courier services, or if you provide or confirm an incorrect address. It is very important that you ensure that the address you give to us is exactly correct, as any mistake could delay delivery and will entail extra expense to you.

Product Defects & Damaged Packages

We allow three days from the date of delivery to notify us if there is any type of defect with a product or if the package it was in was damaged in transit. If we aren’t notified of defects or damages within the three-day window, it is understood that the package and products were in good condition upon delivery.
