Order Acceptance

The receipt of an order number or an email order confirmation does not constitute the acceptance of an order or a confirmation of an offer to sell. HLI reserves the right, without prior notification, to limit the order quantity on any item and/or to refuse service to any customer. Verification of information may be required prior to the acceptance of an order. Prices and availability of products on the Sites are subject to change without notice.

About Our Prices

Where a product listing on our Site references a higher price, typically denoted by a strikethrough (e.g. “$549”), such higher price represents the retail price suggested by the manufacturer or supplier. In the absence of a price suggested by the manufacturer or supplier, this price represents the highest price at which we offered or sold the product at some point in the past. The “Sale” tag on a product listing on our Site signifies that we are selling the product at a discount from a price in the previous 90 days.

HLI Rewards Program

The HLI Rewards Program (the “Rewards Program”) is exclusively for users of the Sites who have registered for the Rewards Program in accordance with the directions set forth below and on the Sites.

Legal Disputes


Any dispute between you and HLI, its agents, employees, officers, directors, principals, successors, assigns, subsidiaries or affiliates (collectively for purposes of this section, ‘HLI’) arising from or relating to these Terms of Use and their interpretation or the breach, termination or validity thereof, the relationships which result from these Terms of Use, including disputes about the validity, scope or enforceability of this arbitration provision (collectively, “Covered Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA). Prior to initiating any arbitration, the initiating party will give the other party at least 60-days’ advance written notice of its intent to file for arbitration. HLI will provide such notice by e-mail to your e-mail address on file with HLI and you must provide such notice by e-mail to info@hobbylinkinternational.com.

During such 60-day notice period, the parties will endeavor to settle amicably by mutual discussions any Covered Disputes. Failing such amicable settlement and expiration of the notice period, either party may initiate arbitration. The arbitrator will have the power to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity and any award of the arbitrator(s) will be final and binding on each of the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. An arbitrator will apply applicable law and the provisions of these Terms of Use and the failure to do so will be deemed an excess of arbitral authority and grounds for judicial review. HLI and you agree that any Covered Dispute hereunder will be submitted to arbitration on an individual basis only. Neither HLI nor you are entitled to arbitrate any Covered Dispute as a class, representative or private attorney action and the arbitrator(s) will have no authority to proceed on a class, representative or private attorney general basis. If any provision of the agreement to arbitrate in this section is found illegal or unenforceable, the remaining arbitration terms shall continue to be fully valid, binding, and enforceable (but in no case will there be a class, representative or private attorney general arbitration). These Terms of Use and related transactions will be subject to and governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. sec. 1-16 (FAA) and, where otherwise applicable, by the laws of the State Of New York.

General Information

No waiver of any provision or any breach of this Agreement will constitute a waiver of any other provisions or any other or further breach.
