For applicable GL Sites, users who are ages 13 and older may choose to register an account (a user who has registered for an account through a GL Site is a “Registered User”, each such account a “GL Account”). If you are under 18, you may only become a Registered User with the involvement and consent of a parent or guardian. Depending upon the type of GL Account for which you are registering, in addition to your name and contact information, you may be required to submit a valid credit card number, billing address, and related billing information and other information. When you register for a GL Account you must (i) provide accurate and truthful information about yourself, including, if applicable, billing information, and (ii) update such information from time to time as necessary to keep your registration information current and accurate. By establishing a GL Account, you represent and warrant you have the right and are authorized to provide the information you provide when you register for such GL Account. You may be requested to abide by additional GL Account terms of use.

Your GL Account is personal to you. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your GL Account and password and for restricting access to your GL Account, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your GL Account. GL reserves the right to refuse service, terminate or disable the GL Site (or any portion of the GL Site) or any GL Accounts, remove or edit Content, or cancel orders in its sole discretion. You must notify GL immediately of any breach of or unauthorized use of your GL Account.

Purchases; Other Terms and Conditions

Additional terms and conditions may apply to purchases of goods or services and to specific portions or features of the GL Site, including payment terms, Content use restrictions or terms, contests, promotions or other similar features, all of which terms are made a part of these Terms of Use by this reference. All purchases from the GL Site are nonreturnable unless stated otherwise. If a purchase from the GL Site is eligible for return, GL 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, GL does not take title to the refunded item. You agree to abide by such other terms and conditions, including where applicable representing that you are of sufficient legal age to use or participate in such service or feature. If there is a conflict between these Terms of Use and the terms posted for or applicable to a specific portion of the GL Site or for any Content, purchase or service offered on or through the GL Site, the latter terms shall control with respect to your use of that portion of the GL Site or the specific Content, purchase or service.

GL’s obligations, if any, with regard to its products and services are governed solely by the agreements pursuant to which they are provided, and nothing on this GL Site should be construed to alter such agreements, provide additional warranties, or create additional obligations on the part of GL.

You must input a valid credit card number and expiration date before you will be allowed to purchase any items from the GL Site, and you do hereby represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the credit card. You do hereby authorize GL to charge your credit card for all expenses incurred on your GL Account. If you dispute any charge on your GL Account, then you must contact GL within 10 days of your receipt of your statement containing the disputed charge. All denials of a transaction by your bank, all holds, and all other similar issues are your sole responsibility and should be dealt with between you and your bank.
