With respect to items sold on DiabeticsUnited.com, we cannot confirm the price of an item until you place your order through the seller’s site. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items in our catalog may be mispriced.

Other merchants may follow different policies in the event of a mispriced item.

Parties other than Diabetics United operate stores, provide services or website, or sell product lines through the Diabetics United Services. In addition, we provide links to the sites of affiliated companies and certain other businesses. If you purchase any of the products or services offered by these businesses or individuals, you are purchasing directly from those third parties, not from Diabetics United. We are not responsible for examining or evaluating, and we do not warrant, the offerings of any of these businesses or individuals (including the content of their Web sites). Diabetics United does not assume any responsibility or liability for the actions, product, and content of all these and any other third parties. You should carefully review the seller’s privacy statements and other conditions of use.
DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
THE DIABETICS UNITED SERVICES AND ALL INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING WEBSITE) AND OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE DIABETICS UNITED SERVICES ARE PROVIDED BY DIABETICS UNITED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING. DIABETICS UNITED MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE OPERATION OF THE DIABETICS UNITED SERVICES, OR THE INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING WEBSITE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE DIABETICS UNITED SERVICES, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING. YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE DIABETICS UNITED SERVICES IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, DIABETICS UNITED DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. DIABETICS UNITED DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE DIABETICS UNITED SERVICES, INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING WEBSITE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE DIABETICS UNITED SERVICES, DIABETICS UNITED’S SERVERS OR ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS SENT FROM DIABETICS UNITED ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS.

Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any Diabetics United Service, or to any products or services sold or distributed by Diabetics United or through DiabeticsUnited.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.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages) and must follow the terms of these Conditions of Use as a court would. 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 Diabetics United Service, you agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the state of Texas, 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 Diabetics United.
