Blackhawk reserves the right to determine, at its sole discretion, whether Submitted Data will be accepted for incorporation into Blackhawk Products.

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ALL OTHER WARRANTIES (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, DURABILITY AND NON-INFRINGEMENT) ARE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMED. ALL SITES, CONTENT, AND THE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SITES ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, WITH ALL FAULTS. NEITHER BLACKHAWK NOR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATED COMPANIES, NOR ANY OF THEIR LICENSEES, SUPPLIERS, FULFILLERS, OWNERS AND OPERATORS OF THIRD-PARTY PORTALS OR MERCHANTS MAKES ANY WARRANTY OR REPRESENTATION WITH RESPECT TO THE QUALITY, ACCURACY, OR AVAILABILITY OF ANY SITES. THE FOREGOING DISCLAIMER INCLUDES, WITHOUT LIMITATION, A DISCLAIMER OF ANY WARRANTY OR REPRESENTATION THAT THE SITES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, RELIABLE, SECURE OR ERROR FREE, OR THAT THE SITES OR OUR SERVERS ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS; OR THAT THE SITES WILL OTHERWISE MEET YOUR EXPECTATIONS.
Under no circumstances shall we (or our licensees, suppliers, fulfillers, owners and operators of Third-Party Portals or Merchants) be liable for damages of any kind, under any legal theory arising out of or in connection with your use of, inability to use, any Site, any Content, or any products or services offered through a Site, including any direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages (including but not limited to damages for loss of profits, use, data or other intangibles) even if we, or our licensees, suppliers, fulfillers, owners and operators of Third-Party Portals or Merchants, have been advised of the possibility of such damages. Without limiting the foregoing, this disclaimer of liability applies to any loss or damage arising out of the customization, processing, storage or fulfillment of any material, Blackhawk Product, or Submitted Data, the inability to use a Site, any changes to a Site (or its products and/or services), or the unauthorized access to or alteration of your transmissions or data. Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitation or exclusion of incidental, consequential or other types of damages, so some of the foregoing limitations may not apply to you.
In addition, in the event you violate these Terms and you intentionally publicize such violation, you acknowledge that Blackhawk and its affiliated companies may suffer substantial damage to its reputation and goodwill and that you can be liable for causing such substantial damage. Furthermore, you agree to refrain from using the services offered through the Site, including ordering any Blackhawk Products, in any manner that would cause damage to the public reputation of Blackhawk, its affiliated companies, and their employees, shareholders, board members, Merchants, or third parties for which Blackhawk provides services. In the event that you use or publicly display any products ordered through the Site, including by display on the Internet, in order to intentionally bring harm to Blackhawk or any of its affiliated companies or their employees, or shareholders, or board members, or to owners or operators of Third-Party Portals, or Merchants, Blackhawk reserves the right to demand the immediate return of the Blackhawk Product(s) ordered from a Site, to invalidate, without refund, the value of any gift card included in such Blackhawk Products, and to pursue any and all further remedies available to Blackhawk and its affiliated companies under the law.
Termination of Right to Use a Site
We reserve the right to terminate your right to use one or more Sites if you violate any of these Terms or if your account has been inactive for more than one year. Upon termination of your right to use one or more Sites, we will remove your account privileges. We will have no obligation to return to you your Submitted Data. The disclaimers and limitations of liabilities set forth in these Terms shall survive any such termination. Your sole recourse and remedy if Blackhawk terminates your right to use a Site, is to receive a refund for any products paid for but not processed or fulfilled by Blackhawk, if any.

You are responsible for protecting the confidentiality of those User IDs and Passwords. Blackhawk is entitled to rely on the fact that any Submitted Data, orders for Blackhawk Products or other information sent to any Site under your User ID and Password for that Site were sent by you. If you believe that the confidentiality of any of your User IDs and/or Passwords has been compromised or that someone has accessed your account without authorization, you should contact our customer service representatives immediately by calling 1-877-426-2551 (1-877-GCMALL1).

For purposes of these Terms, “you” and “your” shall mean you and “we”, “us,” and “our” means Blackhawk and, if applicable, those third parties acting on behalf of Blackhawk from time to time. Title and risk of loss for products purchased by you through a Site passes to you upon delivery of the Blackhawk Products to you or your designated recipient. We may assign our rights and responsibilities hereunder without notice to you. If any of these Terms are held invalid or unenforceable, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision most closely matching the intent of the original provision and the remainder of the Terms will continue in effect. We reserve the right to amend or modify these Terms or impose new conditions at any time. Such amendments and modifications will be effective immediately upon giving you notice by any means including, but not limited to, posting on the applicable Site. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede all other communications, written or oral, with regard to any Site.
The failure of Blackhawk to enforce any right or provision in these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by Blackhawk in writing. Your use of a Site, however, is subject to the additional disclaimers and caveats that may appear throughout such Site.
