Bierley does sell or loan products that may be used by children, but it sells or loans them to adults, who must purchase the products or services with a credit card or other permitted payment method.

REVIEWS, COMMENTS, COMMUNICATIONS, AND OTHER CONTENT
Visitors may post reviews, comments, photos, and other content; send e-cards and other communications; and submit suggestions, ideas, comments, questions, or other information, so long as the content is not illegal, obscene, threatening, defamatory, invasive of privacy, infringing of intellectual property rights, or otherwise injurious to third parties or objectionable and does not consist of or contain software viruses, political campaigning, commercial solicitation, chain letters, mass mailings, or any form of “spam.” You may not use a false e-mail address, impersonate any person or entity, or otherwise mislead as to the origin of a card or other content. Bierley reserves the right (but not the obligation) to remove or edit such content, but does not regularly review posted content.
If you do post content or submit material, and unless we indicate otherwise, you grant Bierley a nonexclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, and fully sublicensable right to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, and display such content throughout the world in any media. You grant Bierley and sublicensees the right to use the name that you submit in connection with such content, if they choose. You represent and warrant that you own or otherwise control all of the rights to the content that you post; that the content is accurate; that use of the content you supply does not violate this policy and will not cause injury to any person or entity; and that you will indemnify Bierley for all claims resulting from content you supply. Bierley has the right but not the obligation to monitor and edit or remove any activity or content. Bierley takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any content posted by you or any third party.
TITLE AND RISK OF LOSS
All items borrowed as part of membership privileges remain the property of Bierley and at no time does title pass to you. Risk of loss is your responsibility and the safety and security of borrowed items is your responsibility until items are returned to and received by Bierley.
All items purchased unpaid for remain the property of Bierley until such times as full payment is received by Bierley. Transfer of title occurs at the time of payment.
All items purchased pre-paid become the property of the Buyer once said purchased items are transferred to a courier or shipping service agent. Transfer of title occurs at the time of placement with carrier.
A Return Authorization shall be obtained prior to shipping any item to Bierley. Once an item has been received and verified by Bierley, membership to the Bierley Services may be cancelled and no further membership fee will be payable.
Bierley attempts to be as accurate as possible. However, Bierley does not warrant that product descriptions or other content is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a product or service is not as described, your sole remedy is to return items in unused condition and cancel service.
Except where noted otherwise, the List Price or Suggested Price displayed for products or services on any Bierley site represents the full retail price listed on the product itself. Changes to prices may be made at any time with no obligation by Bierley to notify you.
We generally do not charge your credit card until after your order has entered the shipping process or, for membership and service products, until we make the membership or service available to you.
BIERLEY SOFTWARE TERMS
In addition to these Conditions of Use, the terms found here apply to any software (including any updates or upgrades to the software and any related documentation) that we make available to you from time to time for your use in connection with Bierley Services (the “Bierley Software”).
DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
THE BIERLEY SERVICES AND ALL INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) AND OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE BIERLEY SERVICES ARE PROVIDED BY BIERLEY ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING. BIERLEY MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE OPERATION OF THE BIERLEY SERVICES, OR THE INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE BIERLEY SERVICES, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING. YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE BIERLEY SERVICES IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK.
TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY APPLICABLE LAW, BIERLEY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. BIERLEY DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE BIERLEY SERVICES, INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE BIERLEY SERVICES, BIERLEY’S SERVERS OR ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS SENT FROM BIERLEY ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS. BIERLEY WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING FROM THE USE OF ANY BIERLEY SERVICE, OR FROM ANY INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH ANY BIERLEY SERVICE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING.
CERTAIN COUNTRY AND STATE LAWS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES. IF THESE LAWS APPLY TO YOU, SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE DISCLAIMERS, EXCLUSIONS, OR LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU, AND YOU MIGHT HAVE ADDITIONAL RIGHTS.
Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any Bierley Service, or to any products or services sold or distributed by Bierley or through any Bierley site will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify.
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 Bierley Service, you agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the state of California, 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 Bierley.
SITE POLICIES, MODIFICATION, AND SEVERABILITY
We reserve the right to make changes to our site, policies, Service Terms, and these Conditions of Use at any time. If any of these conditions shall be deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that condition shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining condition.

You may not use the Bierley Software for any illegal purpose. We may cease providing any Bierley Software and we may terminate your right to use any Bierley Software at any time. Your rights to use the Bierley Software will automatically terminate without notice from us if you fail to comply with any of these Software Terms, the Conditions of Use or any other Service Terms. Additional third party terms contained within or distributed with certain Bierley Software that are specifically identified in related documentation may apply to that Bierley Software (or software incorporated with the Bierley Software) and will govern the use of such software in the event of a conflict with these Conditions of Use. All software used in any Bierley Service is the property of Bierley or its software suppliers and protected by United States and international copyright laws.
