Important Notice Regarding Online Transactions

When shopping online, please be sure you are reading the fine print and agreements on websites, prior to accepting them. Some may contain agreements that make it difficult to dispute charges which could result in the loss of funds or the possibility of no refunds. Many of the sites are for items that contain a free trial period, but by agreeing to their terms and conditions, you agree to a recurring shipment and charge.
