The following terms and conditions apply to the applicable features on the Site:
(a) Return Credit.Items that have been returned for a RC-RECYCLER merchandise credit will be refunded in the form of a merchandise credit (a "Merchandise Credit") at the original purchase price, plus applicable sales tax, and, if applicable, the return shipping charges will be deducted from the amount of the Merchandise Credit. Merchandise Credit may be redeemed only for the purchase of merchandise on the Site and may not be used for the purchase of gift cards or services. Merchandise Credit is not transferable and may not be combined with Merchandise Credit belonging to others. At no time may you purchase, sell or barter any Merchandise Credit. Merchandise Credit is not redeemable for cash, unless required by law. The obligations represented by outstanding Merchandise Credit may at any time be assigned to and assumed by any affiliate of, or successor to, the present or any future owner of the RC-RECYCLER website, or any third party under contract with such present or future owner. You, as a Member, expressly consent to and authorize any such future assignment and assumption of outstanding Merchandise Credit obligations, and you agree to look solely to such assignee in the event of any such transfer.
(b) Return Refund. Items that have been returned for a refund to your original form of payment will be refunded (a "Return Refund") at the original purchase price plus applicable sales tax and the return shipping charges will be deducted from your refund. Please note that in connection with the Return Refund, a refund to your original form of payment includes restoring any prior Merchandise Credit or Membership Rewards that you may have used for your purchase to your RC-RECYCLER Member account. Refunds to your original form of payment will appear on your statement within seven days.
(c) Credit Balances. Any credit balance (including a Reward balance and/or Merchandise Credit) will be automatically applied to your next purchase of merchandise from the Site and the order of redemption of such credits will be determined by RC-RECYCLER. To the extent your credits exceed the amount of your total purchase, the excess credit balance will remain in your account to be applied to your next purchase, subject to the foregoing terms and conditions. If your account and/or membership is terminated for any reason, any credit balances in your account may be cancelled, except as prohibited by law. Account balances are determined by RC-RECYCLER and such determination is final.
(d) Member Email and Postings. The Site may provide Members with the ability to send email messages to others and to post messages on the Site. You are solely responsible for your account, password, profile, messages, notes, text, information, opinions, ideas and any other content you post, upload, submit, publish, or display (hereinafter "post") on or through the Site, or transmit to or share with other Members (collectively, the "Member Content").
