5. Product Descriptions and Pricing The Human-I-T Online Store offers for sale a variety of new and refurbished laptops, tablets, hotspots ("Products"),as well as a range of non-technology items such as apparel, accessories, and other Human-I-T branded items. When we refer to "refurbished" in relation to our Products, we mean that these devices have undergone a comprehensive series of steps to maximize their physical appearance and functionality. This refurbishment process includes disassembling the device to check for and replace defective or missing components such as RAM, hard drives, and motherboards. All remaining data on the device is then wiped to ensure the privacy of the previous users’ information. Next, a new operating system is installed. The device is then tested to ensure its functionality. Only after all these steps are completed is the device labeled as "refurbished". We strive to accurately describe and display our Products on the Website. However, we cannot guarantee that all descriptions, photographs, pricing, and other information are accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. In the event of an error, we reserve the right, at our sole discretion and to the extent permitted by law, to correct such error and revise your order accordingly (including charging the correct price) or to cancel your order and refund any amount charged. The prices displayed on the Website are quoted in U.S. dollars. Prices are subject to change at any time, but changes will not affect any order for Products you have already placed.

6. Ordering and Payment Terms When you wish to purchase a Product, you can either add the Product to your shopping cart and proceed to checkout or choose to use convenient payment options like Apple Pay or Google Pay which allow you to bypass the checkout process. In the checkout process, you will be asked to provide certain information, including, without limitation, your payment and shipping details. If you choose Apple Pay or Google Pay, these details will be pulled from your chosen payment platform to streamline your purchase. By placing an order, you represent and warrant that all such information is accurate, and you confirm that you are the person referred to in the billing information provided. Payment information provided during the ordering process will be collected and held until your order is approved. If you are a Human-I-T Member and have placed an order which received additional discounted pricing, it is important to note that your documentation will be reviewed for approval of the order to be completed. If the documentation is not approved within 7 days, or if payment is not received within 7 days, the order may be automatically canceled. This ensures that the ordering process remains efficient and enables us to promptly serve other customers.
