Our products are only to be sold legally, to adults, and are only to be used for legal purposes. Our small family at HD Glass Art thanks you for your cooperation and participation in abiding by both the law and our wishes.

Terms and Conditions for use of www.hdglassart.com

IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL STATEMENT CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS SITE.

These General Terms and Conditions (“Terms and Conditions”) are applicable to any use of the website www.hdglassart.com (“Website”), to any services available on the Website and to any and all offers, orders and agreements connected therewith (“Services”).

All products on this website are intended for legal use and may not be used, or discussed, in a manner that is illegal. As the consumer, it is your responsibility to know your local and state laws before making your purchase. It is illegal to use drug paraphernalia slang (for instance, the term “bongs”) when referring to one of our tobacco pipes in the State of Arizona. If you do, you will be denied service as required by law, and any communication that includes the use of such illegal terms will not be answered and will be deleted from our system without notice.  Also, any governmental employee, agency, or agent must identify themselves to the operators of HD GLASS ART LLC. upon their entering the site, and when ordering any products from our site.

All of our products are traditionally and solely intended for tobacco or concentrated essential oil use, by legal adults. You must be 18 years old (21 in some areas) to purchase anything from this website. It is solely your responsibility to know your state and local laws regarding the possession and use of tobacco pipes and accessories. Although this site may be linked to other sites, hdglassart.com is not, directly or indirectly, implying any approval, association, sponsorship, endorsement, or affiliation with the linked site(s), unless specifically stated therein. By entering this site you acknowledge and agree that hdglassart.com has not reviewed all the sites linked to this site and is not responsible for the content of any off-site pages or any other site linked to this site. Your linking to any other off-site pages or other sites is at your own risk.

US Code 21-863 refers to ALL materials used to manufacture tobacco accessories: metal, wooden, acrylic, glass, stone, plastic, and ceramic. In specific, pipes with carburetion devices (third holes) are considered to be paraphernalia regardless of the material used to manufacture the pipe. Traditional tobacco accessories like pipes, cigar and cigarette holders and hookah/sisha pipes are not included in the list of Contemporary accessories. U.S. vs. Posters & Things (Supreme Court – 1996) upholds this code as the OBJECTIVE standard by which paraphernalia is judged. Further, it describes other relevant factors in this determination to include whether the owner is a licensed distributor or retailer of tobacco products. Ten states have adopted USC 21-863 as state law, three more are in the process of adoption. All other states have either less rigorous SUBJECTIVE (intent) statutes or no law on this subject at all! All of our glass pipes conform to RTDA guidelines for bowl depth and width.

If you use this site from other locations, you are responsible for compliance with any and all applicable local laws. hdglassart.com makes no representations that the materials contained within this site are appropriate for locations outside Arizona.

The following are the Terms and Conditions of Use of hdglassart.com as they apply to liability, terminology, proper use, website use, shipment, indemnification, warranty, and copywrite.

Liability
HD Glass Art does not condone or permit any illegal activities or discussions in regards to hdglassart.com or HD Glass Art products. You certify that HD Glass Art has not implied, insinuated, suggested or promoted any illegal use of any HD Glass Art product or service, and agree to uphold these statements and absolve HD Glass Art of any liability, blame, or wrongdoing if any illegal actions occur or are discussed in regards to HD Glass Art products.

HD Glass Art prioritizes following the law above all else. You certify that HD Glass Art has advised that you be aware of state and local laws and uphold that it is solely your responsibility to know these laws regarding the purchase, possession, and use of tobacco pipes and accessories, and you absolve HD Glass Art of any liability, blame, or wrongdoing if you fail to adhere to these laws.

HD Glass Art shall not be held liable or in any way responsible for any special or consequential damages to persons or property that result from the use of, or the inability to use, or the performance of, the products or materials on this site. This stipulation holds even if HD Glass Art has been advised of the possibility of such damages occurring. Applicable law may not allow the limitation of exclusion of liability or incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.

Terminology
HD Glass Art blows, by hand, pieces of functional glass art. As above, use of drug paraphernalia slang is strictly prohibited, and such correspondence will be removed or deleted and not replied to. In addition, any mentions of illegal substances will be removed or deleted and not replied to. It is HD Glass Art’s policy that our products are referred to only as “pieces,” “work,” “pipes,” or by the specific product (or category) name. This policy ensures compliance with the law and we find it to be of the utmost importance.

In instances of questionable terminology, HD Glass Art reserves the right to deny service as required by law or as by discretion.

Proper Use
HD Glass Art creates (at our own glassblowing shop, by our own artists) and sells functional glass art. Our products are solely intended and promoted as art pieces with functional application. That functional application is either: (1), artistic, as a work to be displayed or admired, or (2), operational, intended only for legal use with tobacco (or other legal substances) by legal adults (“Proper Use”). Purchase of products and use of this site means that you accept this and intend to use our functional glass art only in the manner(s) described. Any use other than the explicitly defined “Proper Use” is not condoned or promoted by HD Glass Art and if you intend or fulfill any use that violates HD Glass Art’s defined “Proper Use,” you absolve HD Glass Art of any liability or wrongdoing and accept full and sole responsibility for your intentions or actions.

Website Use
Harassment, defamation, libel, fraud, threats or impersonation, in any manner or form on hdglassart.com, including via e-mail, chat, or by use of obscene or abusive language, is strictly forbidden. Content of this nature is highly unlikely throughout our site or product descriptions, but users have the ability to contribute to content through reviews, comments, etc. Using provocative terms or promoting illegal activity is forbidden. HD Glass Art reserves the right to remove and delete any materials that violate any of these conditions, along with any content that is deemed unacceptable at the discretion of HD Glass Art.

HD Glass Art cannot review all communications and materials posted to or created by users accessing the site, and is not in any manner responsible for the content of these communications and materials. Users acknowledge that by being provided with the ability to view and distribute user-generated content on the site (reviews, etc), HD Glass Art is not liable or responsible for any content or activity that originated with a user.

In the unlikely event that an HD Glass Art product is listed erroneously, or at the wrong price, HD Glass Art reserves the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for products listed at incorrect prices. Orders will be canceled and the user contacted if the user hasn’t been charged. If the user has been charged, HD Glass Art will issue a refund or contact the user for a mutually beneficial course of action. HD Glass Art seeks to promote fair business between the company and its website users and will strive to make the best of any errors that occur along the way.

Any link originating on this website (whether linked by the company or a user) does not imply, directly or indirectly, any approval, promotion, or endorsement with the linked site or page. The user understands and absolves HD Glass are of liability regarding the content of these links and links to sites that HD Glass Art is explicitly affiliated with, as the content of those sites may change without the opportunity for HD Glass Art to review them. By using this website the user agrees that HD Glass Art is not liable or responsible for the content of any off-site pages and that following any link that navigates off-site is at the user’s own risk.

HD Glass Art does, however, accept and encourage feedback regarding the usefulness, integrity, or legality of any linked pages or user content so as to continue to provide the best user experience possible. If anything on our site or linked by our site is questionable or in possible/direct violation of any of these terms, alerting us to the situation would be highly appreciated.

HD Glass art does not posit that our website or the servers it runs from are entirely without flaws, defects, or viruses, and is not liable for any conditions, to person or property, that arise from its use.

Shipment
HD Glass Art does not offer shipping to third parties or as gifts, in an effort to make certain our goals to not serve or sell to customers less than 18 years of age. We will only ship our functional glass art to the purchaser.

Our pieces are strong, blown by hand and made to deliberately stand up to day-to-day use and drops. We personally pack our product so that concern over the condition of your order should be minimal. However, we understand that some buyers may seek shipping insurance, and while we officially recommend it, we are still yet to have an order ship with any problems.

Indemnification
You agree to indemnify, defend, and absolve of liability HD Glass Art, its operators, employees and agents from and against all losses, expenses, damages and costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, resulting from any violation of these terms and conditions or any activity related to your account (including negligent or wrongful conduct) by you or any other person accessing the site using your internet account or your hdglassart.com account.

Warranty
HD Glass Art asserts that the art and products on this site are provided without expressed or implied warranty. As a small company, each piece is scrutinized through quality control measures by the artist who makes it. As one of a kind, hand-made pieces by skilled artists, HD Glass Art advises customers that delivered pieces will differ slightly from those displayed on-site and in-catalog as making two of the same exact pipe, by hand, isn’t possible. Every piece is truly unique.

While these products are supplied without warranty, our pieces are engineered and tested to not break when mishandled or dropped. Shipping is not normally a concern, except for hypothetical cases of gross misconduct or neglect by the shipper. While we, and thousands of customers, stand by the strength of our products, it’s not possible for us to provide any guarantees. However, we strive to make every transaction positive and we do want to solve problems customers may have with the condition their products arrive in.

HD Glass Art will absolutely not entertain any return or refund for used products. We will attempt to make up for any breakage that may happen as a result of our packing methods. This means having the product in question sent back to us, as well as pictures of the package on arrival. The only time HD Glass Art will entertain a return or refund is on (1) product breakage on arrival and (2) our determination that it is likely to have happened due to something we can control, such as packaging or product quality.

Copywrite
All content of this website, including but not limited to images, text, and descriptions, is copywrite and property of HD Glass Art.  Permission is granted to use material on this site for the purpose of making an order or otherwise fulfilling a transaction with HD Glass art, or for promoting HD Glass Art. Any other use, including but not limited to the reproduction, distribution, display or transmission of the content of this site (but not applying to the products sold) is strictly prohibited, unless explicitly authorized by HD Glass Art.
