Terms of Purchase

  1.  

    When an order is confirmed, prices become locked-in and the order becomes a contractually binding agreement between the “buyer” and GFG. By placing an order either online or via telephone and agreeing to our terms and conditions, the customer enters into a contractually binding agreement with GFG and agrees to send GFG payment as contractually specified within 72 hours for orders placed via bank wire payment, within 7 business days for orders placed via Check, Cashier's check or money order payment, and at the time of order for PayPal, or Credit card and also agrees to GFG's cancellation policy that this confirmed transaction cannot be cancelled by the purchaser.

     

    GFG reserves the right in its sole discretion, to allow the dissolution of the contractually binding agreement between the "buyer" and GFG through the purchase of your outstanding order.

     

    All orders that fall outside of payment terms as described in GFG Payment Policies are eligible for GFG to purchase your outstanding order at the current Asking Price determined by GFG. Once the purchased outstanding order is confirmed and the value of the purchased order is used to offset the total balance due to GFG. The difference due to GFG is invoiced and due to GFG within (10) business days. If we do not receive payment within this timeframe, GFG reserves the right to send customer accounts to "collections" to retrieve cancellation fees. Should the order enter legal proceedings, the amount owed would increase by 50% and all attorney fees incurred by GFG would be the responsibility of the customer. Any market gains as a result of a cancelled order will remain the property of GFG.

     

    GFG reserves the right to decline, refuse or cancel any order with or without any reason, regardless of payment method, or order confirmation. GFG reserves the right to cancel any order deemed as questionable, suspicious, too significant of risk, incorrect in confirmed price, or if payment has not been received within a specified time frame.
