Chilkoot's respects the intellectual property rights of others and you need to do the same. Anyone who believes that their work has been reproduced on the Site in a way which constitutes copyright infringement may provide a notice to the designated Copyright Agent for the Site containing the following:

· An electronic or physical signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest;

· Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed;

· The address, telephone number, and, if available, an e-mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted;

· A representation that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law;

· A representation that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

Copyright infringement claims and notices (but not other notices) should be sent to the attention of Sonya Wellman, in the following manner:

by mail: c/o Chilkoot Charlie's, 1071 W. 25 th Avenue, Anchorage, Alaska 99503

by phone: (907) 279-1692

by email: sonya@koots.com

It is our policy to terminate in appropriate circumstances (as we determine and without waiving our legal rights), access or other rights of persons who infringe or repeatedly infringe intellectual property rights of others.

NOTICE: NO HARVESTING OR DICTIONARY ATTACKS ALLOWED

The operator of this Site will not give, sell, or otherwise transfer addresses maintained by the Site to any other party for the purposes of initiating, or enabling others to initiate, electronic mail messages except as stated in our Privacy Policy. Except for persons referenced in that policy as authorized recipients of those addresses, persons may violate federal law if they: (1) initiate the transmission to our computers of a commercial electronic mail message (as defined in the U.S. "CAN-SPAM Act of 2003") that does not meet the message transmission requirements of that act; or (2) assist in the origination of such messages through the provision or selection of addresses to which the messages will be transmitted.

NOTICE OF AVAILABILITY OF FILTERING SOFTWARE

It is our view that the Site does not contain materials that would typically be the subject of filtering software. Further, our Site is not directed to children under 13 years of age (and any parent who believes we may have information about such a child should immediately contact us at sonya@Chilkoot.com to arrange its removal). Nevertheless, as the provider of an interactive computer service, we inform you that parental control protections (such as computer hardware, software, or filtering services) are commercially available that may assist you in limiting access to material that is harmful to minors. A report detailing some of those protections can be found at http://www.ntia.doc.gov/ntiahome/ntiageneral/cipa2003/index.html (Children's Internet Protection Act: Report on the Effectiveness of Internet Protection Measures and Safety Policies).

Part Two

This Part Two applies in addition to Part One if you register with us or purchase a product through the Site. In addition to all of the above, your offers to make online purchases from us are governed by the following provisions.

PRODUCT AND ORDERING INFORMATION; DESTINATION

All prices are shown in U.S. dollars and are valid and effective only for products ordered and shipped within the United States; taxes and any (if any) shipping and handling charges are additional. All items are subject to availability and we reserve the right to impose quantity limits on any order, to reject all or part of an order and to discontinue products without notice.

We will deliver within the U.S. (including AK, HI and APO addresses) only and we will not deliver to U.S. territories.

PAYMENT; CREDIT FOR REFUNDS & PRICING

Only valid credit cards may be used and all refunds will be credited to the same card. By submitting your order, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the designated card and authorize us to charge your order (including taxes, shipping, handling and any amounts described on the Site before order submission) to that card. If the card cannot be verified, is invalid, or is not otherwise acceptable, your order may be suspended or cancelled automatically. You agree to keep all card information current and that we may submit charges for processing even if the card has expired by the time we submit it. You must resolve any problem we encounter in order to proceed with your order.

All prices are subject to change without notice. Taxes may be adjusted from the amount shown on the billing screens. Several factors may cause this, such as variances between processor programs and changes in tax rates. You agree to make and keep a copy of records relating to your order such as your order confirmation page.

SHIPPING POLICY [REVISE AS NEEDED]

Shipping is by standard ground delivery by USPS or that we otherwise arrange.

If you want a special delivery (such as shipment other than by standard ground delivery), you will need to notify us immediately. Details will be available when you check-out. We also reserve the right to impose a handling fee. You agree to be bound by the details that appear from time to time when you place or complete your order. Any shipping or handling charges may or may not reflect actual costs.

All orders placed through the Site are shipment contracts, not destination contracts, even when we pay for shipping. Any shipping times shown on the Site are estimates only - actual delivery dates may vary. You agree that you will not obtain or direct shipment of product for export.

RETURN POLICY

Ordinarily, you may return to us without charge and for any good faith reason, a product purchased at the Site if you have not worn, used or washed it and you also do the following:

1- Make the return within 14 days of the date it was delivered to you (as shown by the shipper's records)
2- Complete the return form supplied with your delivered order and repack the merchandise with this form.
3- Return the product in its original form (e.g., do not remove the original Chilkoot hang-tags) and use the original packaging (or substantially equivalent packaging if the original packaging is not available).

ALL RETURNS MUST BE MADE FROM THE U.S. WITH THE U.S. POSTAL SERVICE USING THE PRE-PAID POSTAGE LABEL SUPPLIED WITH YOUR DELIVERED ORDER. OTHERWISE WE CANNOT PAY THE SHIPPING COST.
Please note that returns of products purchased at the Site must be made directly to us as described above and cannot be made in person or otherwise at any store or other establishment.

After we have received your valid return, we will provide one of the following within a reasonable time: an exchange of merchandise for the item returned, a non-transferable gift certificate for use at the Site, a credit to the credit card used to pay for the product, or another remedy that we determine in good faith is appropriate in the circumstances.

If you do not comply with any of the above conditions, we reserve the right to refuse the return or to impose different or additional conditions, including (without limitation) basing our response on the current sales price.

If you believe a product is defective, please contact us at sales@koots.com .

EXCLUSIVE REMEDY - Supplement

In Part One, you agreed in the "Exclusive Remedy" section that, among other details and at our option, your sole remedy would be repair, substitution or replacement of the item giving rise to certain damages (see Part One for details). If you purchase a product from us, YOU FURTHER AGREE THAT IN ADDITION TO ALL OF OUR RIGHTS UNDER THE "EXCLUSIVE REMEDY" PROVISION, WE MAY INCLUDE IN OUR OPTION THE RIGHT TO PAY TO YOU THE AMOUNT OF DIRECT DAMAGES ACTUALLY INCURRED BY YOU IN REASONABLE RELIANCE, AS LONG AS THAT AMOUNT DOES NOT EXCEED THE AMOUNT YOU PAID US FOR THE PRODUCT GIVING RISE TO THOSE DAMAGES.
