ANY AND ALL PURCHASES ARE SUBJECT TO PRODUCT AVAILABILITY. THE PROVIDERS EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY FOR ANY DAMAGE, LOSS OR INJURY ARISING OUT OF: THE ACTIVITIES OF ANY THIRD PARTY SERVICES PROVIDER ("VENDOR") OR THIRD PARTY SALES LOCATION, ANY MERCHANDISE OFFERED BY THE THIRD PARTY SALES LOCATIONS, ANY LOSS OR INJURY RESULTING FROM YOUR ACCESS OR INABILITY TO ACCESS THE CBF PROPERTIES, ANY THIRD PARTY SALES LOCATIONS OR ANY PRODUCT OR SERVICE THEREIN, OR ANY LOSS OR INJURY ARISING OUT OF YOUR DONATION OR PURCHASE OR USE OF ANY MEMBERSHIPS, PRODUCTS OR SERVICES (IF ANY) THAT MAY BE OFFERED ON OR VIA THE CBF PROPERTIES.

Any and all services and/or products offered via the CBF Properties are provided for your private, non-commercial use, and you may not distribute, modify, translate, rebroadcast, transmit, perform or create derivative works of them.

  • A. Price Modifications; Availability

    CBF reserves the right to modify the price of any Memberships or any other products offered via the CBF Properties. CBF is not responsible for any error in copy or images relating to Memberships or any other products offered via the CBF Properties. Any offer to sell any Memberships or any other products offered via the CBF Properties, may be discontinued at any time in CBF's sole discretion.

    The Memberships and any other applicable products offered via the CBF Properties or Third Party Sales Locations are subject to transmission limitations of the Internet and, as applicable, wireless carriers, including, but not limited to, video and/or audio dropouts, rebuffering or loss of connection.

  • B. Customer Service

    Should you have any questions about the CBF Properties, contact CBF at (806) 749-2233 or customerservice@website.collegebaseballhall.org.

  • C. Purchasing; Price; Payment

    In order to make Donations or purchase Memberships or any other products via the CBF Properties or via Third Party Sales Locations (if and when such features are made available), you may be required to provide complete and accurate personal information, including, without limitation, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit or debit card information and shipping address. The CBF Privacy Policy explains how such information collected via the CBF Properties may be collected and used by CBF. With respect to Third Party Sales Locations, the privacy policy of any such Third Party Sales Location applies to the collection and use of your information by the operators and/or owners of such Third Party Sales Location. Your ability to purchase Services and/or any other products offered via the CBF Properties is subject to limits established by your card issuer. You must notify CBF immediately of any change in your credit or debit card information, including any change to your home address. CBF may bill your credit or debit card at the time the Services or any other products offered via the CBF Properties are ordered or fulfilled. You must pay all amounts accrued in your account, including sales tax and shipping and handling charges, when due. CBF may in its sole discretion decline service to or terminate any account. Neither CBF nor any Vendor or any operator of any Third Party Sales Location is responsible, and must not be held liable, for any breaches in transaction security by any third party.

    By purchasing any Memberships or any other products offered via the CBF Properties, you acknowledge and agree that your credit or debit card is being charged by the payment processor of CBF or a CBF club or its Vendor, the operator of such product or service. For purposes of this Agreement, such payment processor will be referred to as a "Vendor."

  • D. Tax For certain purchases of products or services, if any, that may be made via the CBF Properties, CBF may be required to collect sales tax. In states or regions that impose sales or use tax, a purchase is subject to tax unless specifically exempt. Purchases from the CBF Properties are not exempt from sales or use taxes simply because they are made from the Internet or because CBF is not required to collect sales or use tax by any particular state or region. Whether any sales tax will be collected on a given purchase and the amount of tax charged depends on a number of factors including whether CBF is subject to tax in a given jurisdiction. The purchaser is responsible for any applicable taxes not collected by CBF and certain states require purchasers to file a sales/use tax return annually reporting taxable purchases that were not taxed and to pay such tax. For details, see the website of, or otherwise contact, the applicable taxing authority. If any sales tax will be collected directly by CBF in connection with a purchase, that amount will be shown either prior to the completion of any purchase or reflected in the final confirmation of that purchase.

    For Oklahoma purchasers, applicable use tax on purchases made via the CBF Properties may be reported and paid on an Oklahoma individual income tax return [Form 511] or by filing a consumer use tax return [Form 21-1]. The referenced forms and corresponding instructions are available on the Oklahoma Tax Commission website, www.tax.ok.gov. South Dakota purchasers are responsible for applicable sales or use taxes. A purchase is subject to South Dakota tax unless specifically exempt. A purchase is not exempt simply because it was made via the Internet or other remote means. CollegeBaseballHall.org is not required to and does not collect or remit such taxes. Applicable tax may be reported and paid on a South Dakota Use Tax Form [Form 1350], available with corresponding instructions on the South Dakota Department of Revenue website, www.state.sd.us/drr.

    Memberships and Donations, if and when available from this Website, may be tax deductible, and, if so, CBF will provide a tax receipt consistent with applicable law in the manner set forth on the applicable pages of this Website.
