Order is complete when (1) you place your pre-order on www.hipstar.net, (2) we receive your payment (“Pre-order Payment”), which equals a pre-estimated retail price minus current pre-order discount plus payment system’s processing fee 2.9%, and 3) you provide your shipping address to us. An updated retail price will be estimated as soon as the product designers will finalize the design, mechanical development, integration, and pricing of the components. As an early pre-order customer, you are guaranteed to get the same discount you had as of date of placing your pre-order.
While this Pre-order secures the approximate delivery priority within your region, it does not constitute the purchase or order of a product. Upon completion the product development and design stage (it takes approx. 4-6 months), you will be provided the final retail price of the HipStar and requested to complete a survey through which you will provide your shipping address to us.
By providing a shipping address you complete your order. If you proceed with the order, you accept the final retail price. If the updated price will be higher pre-estimated price, we will apply your Pre-order Payment towards the total order cost and you will be required to pay the difference less your special assigned discount of the updated retail price. Until you completed your order, your Pre-order may be cancelled by you or the Company. You can cancel your Pre-order within 3 days from the effective date and if you don’t accept the final updated price. In these cases, you will receive a full refund of your Pre-order Payment less the payment system’s processing fee.
To place your Pre-Order, you must have a valid credit card or verifiable consent to use the credit card of a parent or guardian and you must pay the amount for the Product elected by you as set forth on the HIPSTAR website by credit card through Stripe, or any other payment method designated on our website. Payment does not guarantee acceptance of your Order. Once your Order has been confirmed, HIPSTAR will charge your payment method on file. Any authorized refunds will be paid back to your payment method on file.
The Product prices are exclusive of all taxes, including without limitation provincial and federal sales taxes, import and export duties, levies, charges. These charges are your responsibility. If you are purchasing the Products from a jurisdiction outside of the United States, please check with your state and country’s customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to completing your Order. If you have already placed an Order and discovered that such taxes make your Order untenable for you, please contact HIPSTAR to rescind your Order, and we will refund the amount you paid in connection with your Order.
HIPSTAR is not liable to you in any way whatsoever for (i) the actions of any governmental authorities, including customs authorities; or (ii) your failure to confirm and comply with any export rules and regulations. You will defend and hold HIPSTAR harmless against all claims, damages, or liability resulting from breach of the foregoing.

Please ensure that all the information you have provided is correct before submitting your order to prevent losses in mail or other mishaps from happening. International customer must provide phone number.
SHIPPING AND DELAY
The Products are not ready for delivery and HIPSTAR has not yet begun shipping any products and shipping may be delayed. Any shipping date is an estimate only, and the actual shipping date for any completed Order will depend on a variety of factors including manufacturing schedule, and the dates of your Order, your completed Order, and when we accept your completed Order. Commencement of shipping is subject to change without notice to you. We will list shipping charges for each country on our website, and you must pay all shipping charges for the location of the address you provide. You must also pay all tariff, import, customs, tax, and other charges applicable in your jurisdiction. If shipping costs to the address that you provide for an accepted Order are higher than the shipping costs you paid at the time that you offered to purchase a Product, HIPSTAR may, in its sole discretion, require you to pay additional shipping fees or refund the full amount you paid.
Even though we do our best to ensure a quality product and a fast production, there is always the risk of delays. Supplier shortage, holidays, and weather conditions are just a few of the reasons a production could be delayed. There is always a chance of delays caused by third parties. HIPSTAR should not be held responsible for delays caused by third parties. Please understand that we want your orders to be delivered quickly as much as you do.

LIMITED WARRANTY AND DISCLAIMER
The HIPSTAR limited warranty for the Products will be located at: https://hipstar.net/warranty by the date when you will provide your shipping address. By placing a Pre-Order and providing your shipping address to us, you acknowledge and agree that you have reviewed the limited warranty for the Product, and that you accept that limited warranty. HIPSTAR will also provide the warranty terms for a Product together with the shipped Product. If you do not agree with the warranty terms do not place your Order, Pre-Order or otherwise purchase the Products.
EXCEPT AS MAY BE EXPRESSLY PROVIDED BY HIPSTAR IN THE WARRANTY APPLICABLE TO A PRODUCT AT THE TIME THE ORDER FOR THE PRODUCT IS ACCEPTED, AND TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, PRODUCTS ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE”, WITH ALL FAULTS AND WITHOUT GUARANTEED WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, AND HIPSTAR HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS WITH RESPECT TO THE PRODUCT, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO: (A) THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, MERCHANTABLE QUALITY, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ACCURACY, QUIET ENJOYMENT, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTY RIGHTS; AND (B) ANY WARRANTY OR CONDITION ARISING OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE, OR TRADE. HIPSTAR DOES NOT WARRANT THAT USE OF ANY PRODUCT WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR FREE OF ERRORS OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS AND DOES NOT WARRANT THAT ANY OF THOSE ISSUES WILL BE CORRECTED.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
TO THE EXTENT NOT PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL HIPSTAR BE LIABLE FOR PERSONAL INJURY, OR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS OR YOUR USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE ANY PRODUCT, HOWEVER CAUSED, REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY (CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE) AND EVEN IF HIPSTAR HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR PERSONAL INJURY, OR OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THIS LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. You agree that if any lawsuit or court proceeding is permitted under these Terms, the aggregate liability of HIPSTAR and its affiliates and suppliers to you for all claims arising out of or related to these Terms or your use or inability to use a Product will not (other than as may be required by applicable law in cases involving personal injury) exceed the amount you paid to HIPSTAR for that Product. These limitations will apply even if the above stated remedy fails of its essential purpose. Each provision of these Terms that provides for a limitation of liability, disclaimer of warranties, or exclusion of damages is to allocate the risks under these Terms between the parties. This allocation is an essential element of the basis of the bargain between the parties.
You alone are responsible for the manner in which you use the Product. You shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless HIPSTAR and its officers, directors, employees, agents, affiliates, and suppliers (“Indemnitees”) from and against every claim, liability, damage, loss, and expense, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs, arising out of or in any way connected with: (a) your use of, or alleged use of, any Product; (b) your violation of any portion of these Terms, any representation, warranty, or agreement referenced in these Terms, or any applicable law or regulation; (c) your violation of any third-party right, including any intellectual property right or publicity right; (d) any dispute or issue between you and any third party; or (e) your violation of any applicable law, rule or regulation. We reserve the right to assume the exclusive control of the defense, subject to indemnification by you (without limiting your indemnification obligations with respect to that matter), and in that case, you agree to cooperate with our defense of that claim.
If HIPSTAR accepts Pre-Order, HIPSTAR will not be liable to you for any delay, including any delay due to an event beyond HIPSTAR’s reasonable control, such as an act of God, terrorism, war, political insurgence, insurrection, riot, civil unrest, act of civil or military authority, uprising, earthquake, flood or any other natural or man-made eventuality outside of HIPSTAR’s control.
MODIFICATION OF THESE TERMS
We reserve the right, at our discretion, to change these Terms on a going-forward basis at any time. Please check these Terms periodically for changes. If a change to these Terms materially modifies your rights or obligations, you will be required to accept the modified Terms in order for your Order or Pre-Order to remain valid. Material modifications are effective upon your acceptance of the modified Terms. Immaterial modifications are effective upon publication. Disputes arising under these Terms will be resolved in accordance with the version of these Terms that was in effect at the time the dispute arose.
Except if you opt-out or for disputes relating to: (1) your or HIPSTAR's intellectual property (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights and patents); (2) violations of the API Terms; or (3) violations of Excluded Disputes, you agree that all disputes between you and HIPSTAR (whether or not such dispute involves a third party) with regard to your relationship with HIPSTAR including without limitation disputes related to these Terms, and/or rights of privacy and/or publicity, will be resolved by binding, individual arbitration under the American Arbitration Association's rules for arbitration of consumer-related disputes and you and HIPSTAR hereby expressly waive trial by jury. As an alternative, you may bring your claim in your local "small claims" court, if permitted by that small claims court's rules. You may bring claims only on your own behalf. Neither you nor HIPSTAR will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by this agreement. You also agree not to participate in claims brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated claims involving another person's account, if HIPSTAR is a party to the proceeding. This dispute resolution provision will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. In the event the American Arbitration Association is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within sixty (60) days of filing the case, then either HIPSTAR or you can elect to have the arbitration administered instead by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with these Terms.
You may opt out of this agreement to arbitrate. If you do so, neither you nor HIPSTAR can require the other to participate in an arbitration proceeding. To opt out, you must notify HIPSTAR in writing within 30 days of the date that you first became subject to this arbitration provision. You must use this address to opt out:
HIPSTAR LLC, 4728 57 ST NW, Rochester, Minnesota 55901, United States
You must include your name and residence address, the email address you use for your HIPSTAR order or account, and a clear statement that you want to opt out of this arbitration agreement.
If the prohibition against class actions and other claims brought on behalf of third parties contained above is found to be unenforceable, then all of the preceding language in this Arbitration section will be null and void. This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with HIPSTAR.
GOVERNING LAW & VENUE
You agree that any claim you may have arising out of or related to your relationship with ART MATRIX must be filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, your claim is permanently barred.
TIME LIMITATION ON CLAIMS
You agree that any claim you may have arising out of or related to your relationship with HIPSTAR must be filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, your claim is permanently barred.
If any provision of these Terms is held to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable during arbitration or by a court of competent jurisdiction, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. HIPSTAR's failure to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any provision of these Terms will not be construed as a waiver of any provision or right. No waiver of any of these Terms will be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or any other term or condition. HIPSTAR reserves the right to change this dispute resolution provision, but any such changes will not apply to disputes arising before the effective date of the amendment. This dispute resolution provision will survive the termination of any or all of your transactions with HIPSTAR.
