In the event that a G&S Designs product is mistakenly listed at an incorrect price, G&S Designs reserves the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for product listed at the incorrect price. G&S Designs reserves the right to refuse or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit card charged.

These terms and conditions are applicable to you upon your accessing the site and/or completing the registration or shopping process. These terms and conditions, or any part of them, may be terminated by G&S Designs without notice at any time, for any reason.

In an attempt to provide increased value to our visitors, G&S Designs may link to sites operated by third parties. However, even if the third party is affiliated with G&S Designs, G&S Designs has no control over these linked sites, all of which have separate privacy and data collection practices, independent of G&S Designs. These linked sites are only for your convenience and therefore you access them at your own risk. Nonetheless, G&S Designs seeks to protect the integrity of its web site and the links placed upon it and therefore requests any feedback on not only its own site, but for sites it links to as well (including if a specific link does not work).
