You agree that your order is a binding offer to purchase the Contrast Products and Services listed in your order. All orders submitted by you are subject to acceptance by Contrast. Contrast may choose not to accept your order for any reason without liability to you. Contrast may also place a limit on the quantities that may be purchased per order, per account, per credit card, per person, or per household. After submitting an order to us, we will send you an 'Order Confirmation' email with your order number and details on the products and services you have ordered. This Order Confirmation is only an acknowledgement of receipt of your offer. Contrast’s acceptance of your offer occurs only when we have (a) shipped your Product or provided the Service, and (b) received payment in full of the purchase price of your order through settlement of funds. Contrast may, in its sole discretion, refuse, reject, or cancel any order at any time prior to Acceptance, refunding you any monies you have paid for the order.

Product prices and availability are subject to change at any time and without notice. All prices shown in the Online Store are given in US dollars unless otherwise stated. All prices shown in the Online Store exclude all taxes or similar charges (“Taxes”) that may apply to your purchase. Prices shown in the Online Store also exclude delivery costs. Taxes and delivery costs will be added to the amount of your purchase and shown on the check-out page. You will have an opportunity to review the Taxes and delivery costs before you confirm your purchase. Contrast works hard to ensure that all pricing and product information in the Online Store is correct. Occasionally, however, an error may occur and Products and Services may be mispriced. If a Product's or Service's correct price is lower than the price stated in the Online Store, we will charge you the lower amount for the Product or Service. If a Product's or Service's correct price is higher than the price stated on the Online Store, we will contact you and ask you whether you wish to proceed with the order at the correct price or whether you wish to cancel your order.

If you do place an order, we will charge you at the time you place your order and will ship the Product when it is available. You may cancel your order before the product is shipped or available for download by sending an email to
or by calling customer support at 505.872.2123. Once your order is shipped or available for download, our normal return policies apply. If different order terms apply to a specific product, we will state this in the Online Store. Credits or refunds will be made to the same method of payment and account used to place the order.
5. PAYMENT TERMS
The Online Store offers different payment options, as set forth in the Online Store. We reserve the right to change our payment options at any time and for any reasons. Unless we notify you otherwise prior to our acceptance of your order, Contrast will only accept payment in US dollars. When ordering, you confirm that the credit/debit card that is being used is yours. All credit/debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorization by the card issuer.
