EBCV and its affiliates attempt, in good faith, to be as accurate as possible with descriptions of the featured products on the Site (the “Products”).  However, EBCV does not warrant that the descriptions of the Products are accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free.  Further, EBCV does not warrant that any of the Products are suited for a particular purpose or that they will work for any member’s intended purpose.  Prices for the Products, and related discounts thereto, may be changed at any time by EBCV.  If the Products presented on the Site are not as described, your sole remedy is to return such Products in compliance with the Return Policy.

GIFT CARDS

You may use an East Bank Club Gift Card (“Gift Card”) only to purchase authorized Products.  EBCV in its sole discretion shall determine what Products members may purchase with a Gift Card.  Your use of a Gift Card is limited to the current dollar value held on the card.  Gift Cards may not be redeemed for cash, except to the extent required by law.  EBCV recommends that you protect your Gift Card as if it were cash and safeguard the Gift Card from unauthorized use.  Except where required by applicable law, EBCV is responsible for and will not replace any Gift Cards if lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed.

You may not return, resell or use any Gift Card for any unauthorized advertising, marketing, sweepstakes or other promotional purposes.

The consideration paid for the Gift Card, including any unredeemed balances, is the property of EBCV.

EBCV assumes no responsibility for any loss of any kind arising out of the use of any Gift Card. In the event a Gift Card is not functional, your sole remedy, and EBCV’s sole liability, shall be the replacement of the Gift Card at its then-current value.

RETURN POLICY AND REFUNDS
