"List Price" means the suggested retail price of a product as provided by a manufacturer, supplier, or seller.

We generally do not charge your credit card until after your order has entered the shipping process or, for digital products, until we make the digital product available to you.

ANCIENT WAYS MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE OPERATION OF THE ANCIENT WAYS WEB SITE, OR THE INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER WEB SITE INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE ANCIENT WAYS WEB SITE, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING.

TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, ANCIENT WAYS DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. ANCIENT WAYS DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE ANCIENT WAYS WEB SITE, INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER WEB SITE INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE ANCIENT WAYS WEB SITE, ANCIENT WAYS'S SERVERS OR ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS SENT FROM ANCIENT WAYS ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS.

Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any Ancient Ways products, services or web site sold or distributed by Ancient Ways or through Ancientwaysdm.com 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.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent Isaacson Law Firm, PLC 2700 Westown Pkwy Ste 230, West Des Moines, IA, 50266-1411. 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, Ancient Ways 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 using any Ancient Ways Service, you agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the state of Washington, 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 Ancient Ways.
