Reliance on Information Posted
The information presented on or through the Website is made available solely for general information purposes.

We disclaim all liability and responsibility arising from any reliance placed on those materials by you or any other visitor to the Website, or by anyone who may be informed of any of its contents.
This Website may include content provided by third parties, including materials provided by other users, bloggers, and third-party licensors, syndicators, aggregators, or reporting services. All statements or opinions expressed in these materials, and all articles and responses to questions and other content, other than the content provided by the Model, are solely the opinions and the responsibility of the person or entity providing those materials. These materials do not necessarily reflect the Model’s opinion. We are not responsible, or liable to you or any third party, for the content or accuracy of any materials provided by any third parties.
Changes to the Website
We may update the content on this Website from time to time, but its content is not necessarily complete or up-to-date. Any of the material on the Website may be out of date at any given time, and we are not required to update that material.
Information About You and Your Visits to the Website
Recurring Billing. By starting a VIP membership and providing or designating a payment method, you authorize our third-party payment process to charge you a monthly membership fee at the then current rate, and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the Website.
Price Changes. We may adjust pricing for our service or any components of it in any manner and at any time as we may determine in our sole discretion.
Billing Cycle. The VIP membership fee for our service will be billed at the beginning of the paying part of your membership and each billing cycle afterwards, as indicated on the payment page at the time of initial purchase, until you cancel your membership
Cancellation. You may cancel your VIP membership at any time, and you will continue to have access to the VIP membership area through the end of your monthly billing period.
Buying Digital Content Individually
The Website may offer you the ability to buy digital content on an individual basis. If it does, you may buy digital content individually without purchasing a VIP membership. The price of the digital content will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. It is your responsibility to check the price before buying digital content. Unless the payment page indicates otherwise (for example, VAT taxes are collected from EU users), pricing excludes any taxes or currency transmission charges, which are extra costs charged to you. We may adjust pricing for individual digital content at any time as we may determine in our sole discretion.
We accept payment through our third-party payment processor. You must pay for the digital content before you download it.
If you think an invoice is wrong, please contact us promptly to let us know. If you fail to notify us within 30 days of receiving the invoice, you waive any disputed charges. We will correct any mistakes in an invoice and credit them against your future purchases.
Terms of Sale for Model Products
The Model may sell various goods through the Website. The images of the products on our Website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colors accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device’s display of the colors accurately reflects the color of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images.
You acknowledge that your order is an offer to buy, under these terms, all products listed in your order. All orders must be accepted by us or we will not be required to sell the products to you. We may choose not to accept any orders in our sole discretion. After having received your order, we will send you a confirmation email with the details of the products you have ordered. Acceptance of your order will not take place until you have received your order confirmation email. You have the option to cancel your order at any time before we have sent your order confirmation email by emailing us at [email protected].
All prices posted on this Website are subject to change without notice. The price charged for a product will be the price in effect at the time the order is placed and will be stated in your order confirmation email. Price increases will only apply to orders placed after those changes. Unless the payment page indicates otherwise (for example, VAT taxes are collected from EU users), posted prices do not include taxes or charges for shipping and handling. All those taxes and charges will be added to your merchandise total and will be itemized in your shopping cart and in your order confirmation email. We are not responsible for pricing, typographical, or other errors in any offer by us and we reserve the right to cancel any orders arising from those errors.
Terms of payment are within our sole discretion and, unless otherwise agreed by us in writing, payment must be received by us before our acceptance of an order. All payments are processed by our authorized third-party payment processor. You state that (i) the credit card information you supply to our third-party payment processor is accurate; (ii) you are duly authorized to use that credit card for the purchase; (iii) charges incurred by you will be honored by your credit card company; and (iv) you will pay charges incurred by you at the posted prices, including all applicable taxes, if any.
