Notwithstanding the product prices shown on the website, we cannot confirm the price of an item until you order. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items shown on the website may be mis-priced as a result of price changes that are implemented at or about the time of your visit to the website.

If an item’s correct price is higher than our stated price, your sole recourse is cancellation of your order.

Any tax exemption must be verified prior to purchase(s) with proper documentation, and once approved, buyer assumes responsibility for any fines, fees, damages, settlements effecting Lens Prose by buyer’s incorrect or fraudulent exemption.
We attempt to describe our products offered as accurately as possible. However, we do not warrant that product descriptions or other content of the website are 100% accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free. If you feel your product is not as described, Please contact us at LensProse@gmail.com.

Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any Lens Prose Service, or to any products or services sold or distributed by Lens Prose Gallery Studio, LLC or through LensProse.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 placing an order with Lens Prose, you agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the state of Minnesota, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms and Conditions and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and Lens Prose Gallery Studio, LLC.
If any of the terms or conditions herein shall be deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that term or condition shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining term or condition.
