Other than as specifically provided in any separate formal purchase agreement between you and Platinum Records, these terms and conditions (this "Agreement") apply to all of your online purchases from the website at www.platinum-records.com (the "Site") and may NOT be altered, supplemented, or amended by you through the use of any other document(s). Any attempt to alter, supplement, or amend this document or to enter an order for product(s), which is subject to additional or altered terms and conditions, will be null and void, unless otherwise agreed to in a written agreement signed by both you and Platinum Records.
By purchasing products and/or services from the Site, you agree to be bound by and accept this Agreement. Orders are not binding upon Platinum Records until accepted by Platinum Records. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. Platinum Records will indicate its acceptance of an order by acknowledging your order by reply email or by shipping the ordered items to you.
Because prices, product descriptions, and availability can change quickly, Platinum Records does not warrant the accuracy or completeness of the information provided on the Site.
List Price is the suggested retail selling price of a product provided to us by manufacturers. We may commonly sell products at prices lower than List Price and, for any given product, no sales may have occurred at List Price.
List Price is a benchmark to compare our discounts from List Price to pricing offered by other retailers. Whether other retailers sell at List Price will vary by product, geographic location, type of store, and over time.
Although we periodically update the List Prices in our direct mail offerings and on our website as we receive them, in some cases manufacturers may change a suggested retail price without notice to us.
Please contact the manufacturer of a specific product for the most up-to-date List Price information.
List Prices quoted for house or private label brands are developed internally in consideration of comparable name brand products. We may commonly sell such products at prices lower than List Price and, for any given product, no sales may have occurred at List Price.
Although our limited time events are intended to be limited time events, our low prices offered during these events may continue in effect after the event.
Values associated with items labeled "free with purchase" are based upon list price.
Internet orders may be paid for using the following methods: VISA, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Platinum Records Preferred Player Card, and PayPal.

When your qualified purchase is charged to your Platinum Records Preferred Player Card, no interest is assessed on your promotional purchase balance if you pay the promotional purchase balance in full by the end of your promotional period.
