TERMS AND CONDITIONS
MusicGoldmine® is a registered trademark. All rights reserved. All content on this website ©2018-22. In addition to these Terms and Conditions, see Shipping, Refund and Privacy Policies which also apply to MusicGoldmine.com visitors and product buyers.
MusicGoldmine® (hereinafter "Online Shop," "MusicGoldmine" or "MusicGoldmine.com") attempts to be as accurate as possible in its descriptions of items for sale and all efforts are made to include detailed photos and information. We also endeavor to be completely clear in our item descriptions, indicating, for example, when an item contains an authentic original ticket versus a reprint or replica of that ticket. However, Online Shop does not warrant that product descriptions or other content of any Online Shop item description are always error-free. Please make your own assessment of an item's condition, genuineness, and details through your own review of the information and images presented before making a decision to buy.
If you have a question on any item, we are happy to answer your query to the best of our ability, but given the nature of the items we sell we cannot always know the origin, date(s) or place(s) signed, provenance, history, genuineness, complete condition information on hidden components of an item, etc. Also note that while many memorabilia items appreciate in value, others fall in value and Online Shop makes no claims, express or implied, that any item will appreciate in value at any time in the future. Further, our items are sold as collectible pieces and there is no guarantee that any item purchased can be resold in any other marketplace of any kind (online, auction, physical store or other).
If you receive an item from Online Shop that is not the item you ordered, your sole remedy is to return it in the same condition as received so that we may send you the correct item or, alternatively if for some reason the item you ordered is not available, issue you a full refund.
MusicGoldmine reserves the right to refuse service to any customer for any reason, in its sole discretion, with the caveat that MusicGoldmine shall not deny service to someone solely based on his or her age, race, color, religion, national origin, disability, sexual orientation or other protected class. In the event that we have refused service to a customer and that customer attempts to make a purchase or purchases, the purchase(s) will be cancelled and not fulfilled, and MusicGoldmine reserves the right to retain any and all payment processing fees incurred on the transaction.
While MusicGoldmine has an all-sales-are-final policy, in the event that an exception is made and an order cancellation is agreed upon by MusicGoldmine, the payment processing fees, a 10% restocking fee, or both may be subtracted from any refund due, except in cases in which the item is not actually available due to an error by MusicGoldmine.
A cornerstone of our business is to offer one-of-a-kind, authentic music memorabilia. For this reason the vast majority of our signed/autographed items come with a third party Certificate of Authenticity or Letter of Authenticity (hereinafter "COA/LOA"). In our item descriptions we clearly indicate when an item comes with a COA/LOA and when it does not. By "third party" we mean that the COA/LOAs provided with our items are only from authentication companies not affiliated with us. The COA/LOAs we provide come from top tier, industry-recognized authentication companies. Note however that the existence of the certification of authenticity provided does not necessarily imply that the item will be certified by other rival authentication companies. The COA/LOA accompanying the item is the only proof of authenticity that Online Shop will provide. See also our MusicGoldmine Authenticity Guarantee, which applies as stated therein.
With respect to items sold by Online Shop, we cannot confirm the price of an item until you order. At times, it is possible that items in our catalog may be mispriced. If the correct price of an item sold by Online Shop is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation and correct price. We generally do not charge your credit card until after your order has entered the shipping process.
If a "Make An Offer" button appears on an item page, you may choose to make an offer for the item. Online Shop is under no obligation to accept any offer submitted but we will promptly reply to you as to whether we will accept your offer within 24 hours and usually much less. The price made available through either acceptance of an offer or through a counteroffer will be available for 48 hours from the time of acceptance or alternate length of time period as specified but note that neither making an offer nor receiving a counteroffer on an offer placed holds the item. Items with pending offers or counteroffers remain for sale on our website until they are paid for through the completion of a purchase transaction. In other words, they must be fully paid for in order for them to be considered sold and removed from available inventory. Generally, we only accept offers on items on which we display an offer button. However, you can always inquire via our email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to make an offer on an item with no offer button displayed.
DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
ONLINE SHOP PRODUCTS AND ALL INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS AND OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH OUR ONLINE SHOP ARE PROVIDED BY ONLINE SHOP ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING. ONLINE SHOP MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE OPERATION OF OUR ONLINE SHOP SERVICES, OR THE INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH ONLINE SHOP, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING. YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF ONLINE SHOP SERVICES IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK.
TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, ONLINE SHOP DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. ONLINE SHOP DOES NOT WARRANT THAT ONLINE SHOP SERVICES, INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE ONLINE SHOP, ONLINE SHOP'S SERVERS OR ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS SENT FROM ONLINE SHOP ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS. TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, ONLINE SHOP WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING FROM THE USE OF ANY ONLINE SHOP SERVICE, OR FROM ANY INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH ANY ONLINE SHOP SERVICE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING.
Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any Online Shop service or product, or to any products or services sold or distributed by Online Shop 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 Conditions of Use as a court would.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to us at: MusicGoldmine.com, 10300 W. Charleston Blvd., Suite 13-60, Las Vegas, NV 89135. 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, Online Shop 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 visiting, browsing and/or purchasing any product or products at Online Shop, you agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the state of Nevada, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Conditions of Use and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and Online Shop.
