HGC Apparel provides the HGC Apparel Services subject to the following conditions.
By using HGC Apparel Services, you agree to these conditions. Please read them carefully.
We offer a wide range of HGC Apparel Services, and sometimes additional terms may apply. When you use an HGC Apparel Service you also will be subject to the guidelines, terms and agreements applicable to that HGC Apparel Service (“Service Terms”). If these Terms and Conditions are inconsistent with the Service Terms, those Service Terms will control.
When you use any HGC Apparel Service, or send e-mails, text messages, and other communications from your desktop or mobile device to us, you are communicating with us electronically. You consent to receive communications from us electronically, such as e-mails, texts, mobile push notices, or notices and messages on this site or through the other HGC Apparel Services and you can retain copies of these communications for your records.

The compilation of all content included in or made available through any HGC Apparel Service is the exclusive property of HGC Apparel and protected by U.S. and international copyright laws.
Graphics, logos, page headers, button icons, scripts, and service names included in or made available through any HGC Apparel Service are trademarks or trade dress of HGC Apparel in the U.S. and other countries. HGC Apparel’s trademarks and trade dress may not be used in connection with any product or service that is not HGC Apparel’s, in any manner that is likely to cause confusion among customers, or in any manner that disparages or discredits HGC Apparel.

HGC Apparel reserves the right to refuse service, terminate accounts, remove or edit content, or cancel orders in its sole discretion.
RISK OF LOSS
All items purchased from HGC Apparel 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
HGC Apparel does not take title to exchanged items until the item arrives at our fulfillment center. For more information about our exchanges, please see our Exchange Policy.
HGC Apparel attempts to be as accurate as possible. However, HGC Apparel does not warrant that product descriptions or other content of any HGC Apparel Service is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a product offered by HGC Apparel itself is not as described, your sole remedy is to exchange it in unused condition.
DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
THE HGC APPAREL SERVICES AND ALL INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) AND OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE HGC APPAREL SERVICES ARE PROVIDED BY HGC APPAREL ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING. HGC APPAREL MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE OPERATION OF THE HGC APPAREL SERVICES, OR THE INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE HGC APPAREL SERVICES, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING. YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE HGC APPAREL SERVICES IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY APPLICABLE LAW, HGC APPAREL DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. HGC APPAREL DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE HGC APPAREL SERVICES, INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE HGC APPAREL SERVICES, HGC APPAREL’S SERVERS OR ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS SENT FROM HGC APPAREL ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS. HGC APPAREL WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING FROM THE USE OF ANY HGC APPAREL SERVICE, OR FROM ANY INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH ANY HGC APPAREL SERVICE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING.
CERTAIN STATE LAWS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES. IF THESE LAWS APPLY TO YOU, SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE DISCLAIMERS, EXCLUSIONS, OR LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU, AND YOU MIGHT HAVE ADDITIONAL RIGHTS.
Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any HGC Apparel Service, or to any products or services sold or distributed by HGC Apparel or through HGCApparel.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 and Conditions as a court would.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent Corporation Service Company, 2711 Centerville Rd., Suite 400, Wilmington, DE 19808. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, HGC Apparel will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.
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. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
By using any HGC Apparel Service, you agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the state of Delaware, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms and Conditions and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and HGC Apparel.
