Customer upon delivery to the carrier. Gigatech Gaming reserves a purchase money security interest in the product(s) until its receipt of the full amount is due. The Customer agrees to allow Gigatech Gaming to sign appropriate documents on the Customer’s behalf to permit Gigatech Gaming to protect its purchase money security interest. Title to software will remain with the licensor(s). All software is provided subject to the license agreement of the software maker. The Customer agrees to be bound by any software license agreement once the seal on the package is broken. Gigatech Gaming will advise the Customer of estimated shipping dates, but Gigatech Gaming will, under no circumstances, be responsible for delays in delivery and associated damages, due to events beyond its reasonable control, including without limitation, acts of God or public enemy, acts of federal, state, or local government, fire, floods, civil disobedience, strikes, lockouts, and freight embargoes.

Electronic Waste Recycling Act
The Electronic Waste Recycling Act (“Act”) became law in California on January 1, 2005. The primary objective of this law is to initiate a recycling program for computer products containing chemicals deemed hazardous to the environment. To fund this program, California requires retailers and e-tailers to collect, on the State’s behalf, a fee for each product covered by this law. The fee is paid by the consumer at the time of purchase of the covered product. This fee will be remitted directly to the State and only applies to orders shipped within California.
The types of products that we are required to collect this recycling fee include flat panel screens and other similar video display devices. The actual amount of the recycling fee will vary, based on the screen size of the product when measured diagonally, as follows:
Greater than 4” and less than 15” -- $5.00
Greater than or equal to 15” -- $6.00
Greater than or equal to 35” --$7.00
For more information concerning the scope and details of the Act, please refer to the California Integrated Waste Management Board’s website at https://www.ciwmb.ca.gov/Electronics/Act2003 .
Unfortunately, we do not offer price matching. For your convenience, all our most current and lowest pricing is posted on our website daily. Prices are non-negotiable.
We make every effort to list the most accurate, up to the minute information. Despite our efforts, some items on our website may be mis-priced. If a product is listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical, photographical, or technical error or error in pricing from our vendors, Gigatech Gaming reserves the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for a product listed at the incorrect price.
For your convenience, Gigatech Gaming does its best to advertise any current rebates on our website. The prices listed on our website do not include rebate savings. Any use of these rebates is limited to any terms and/or conditions as determined by the manufacturer.

OEM vs. Retail
The retail and OEM versions usually are essentially the same product. However, the retail version usually comes with bundled software, retail packaging, and more bells and whistles so to speak. OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer), also known as White Box or Brown Box versions, will come with the actual product and drivers, but no special packaging or software.
30-Day Satisfaction Guarantee
Gigatech Gaming offers our customers a 30-day satisfaction refund guarantee on all purchases (please refer to the Purchase Agreement and/or Warranty Statement for additional details), except: any routers, software, or any specially ordered items.
