Other than as specifically provided in any separate formal purchase agreement between you and Alva’s Music,
these terms and conditions (this “Agreement”) apply to all of your online purchases from the website
at www.alvasmusic.com (the “Site”) and may NOT be altered, supplemented, or amended by you through
the use of any other document(s). Any attempt to alter, supplement, or amend this document or to enter an order
for product(s) which is subject to additional or altered terms and conditions will be null and void, unless otherwise agreed to in a written
agreement signed by both you and Alva’s Music.
By purchasing products and/or services from the Site, you agree to be bound by and accept this Agreement. Orders are not binding upon
Alva’s Music until accepted by Alva’s Music. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. Alva’s Music will indicate its acceptance
of an order by acknowledging your order by reply email or by shipping the ordered items to you.
Because prices, product descriptions, and availability can change quickly, Alva’s Music does not warrant the accuracy or completeness of the information provided on the Site.
List Price is the suggested retail selling price of a product provided to us by manufacturers. We may commonly sell products at prices lower than
List Price and, for any given product, no sales may have occurred at List Price.
List Price is a benchmark to compare our discounts from List Price to pricing offered by other retailers. Whether other retailers sell at
List Price will vary by product, geographic location, type of store, and over time.
Although we periodically update the List Prices in our direct mail offerings and on our website as we receive them, in some cases
manufacturers may change a suggested retail price without notice to us.
Please contact the manufacturer of a specific product for the most up-to-date List Price information.
List Prices quoted for house or private label brands are developed internally in consideration of comparable name brand products.
We may commonly sell such products at prices lower than List Price and, for any given product, no sales may have occurred at List Price.
Although our limited time events are intended to be limited time events, our low prices offered during these events may continue in effect after the event.
Values associated with items labeled "free with purchase" are based upon list price.
Some products, including those identified as specials may be limited to stock on hand and are offered on a first come, first served basis.
Shipping Charges—Taxes and Title
Shipping for prices over $50 is free. Orders placed on Saturdays, Sundays, or holidays will be processed the next business day.
As a security precaution, initial orders and orders shipping to alternate addresses may be held for extended verification.
We reserve the right to make partial shipments, which will not relieve you of your obligation to pay for the remaining deliveries.
All items purchased from Alva’s Music are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such
items passes to you upon our delivery to the carrier.
If applicable, a separate charge for taxes will be shown on the invoice. We are required to collect sales tax on all orders shipped to California.
All new products are sold with the manufacturer's limited warranty. The warranty period and service varies by manufacturer and product.
