They are considered in effect and form a part of the order. US Digital does not accept any other conditions governing the sale of products unless otherwise accepted by US Digital in writing before the order is placed. US Digital has no minimum order for standard parts, as shown on the website.

US Digital's liability for damages shall in no event exceed (under any legal or other theory of recovery) the sum paid to US Digital for the product causing the damages. Further, the Customer agrees that its sole remedy for damages shall be limited, at US Digital's sole discretion, to repair, replacement, or purchase price refund only after the product is returned in accordance with return policies.
