These Terms will be applied fully and affect to your use of this Website. By using this Website, you agreed to accept all terms and conditions written in here. You must not use this Website if you disagree with any of these Website Standard Terms and Conditions.
You affirm that you are either more than 18 years of age, or an emancipated minor, or posses legal parental or guardian consent, and are fully able and competent to enter into the terms, conditions, obligations, affirmations, representations, and warranties set forth in these Terms of Service, and to abide and comply with these Terms of Service.

Accepted Methods of Payment:
PayPal and Stripe
PayPal or Stripe will be charged when you place your order. If we are not able to fulfill your order for any reason your PayPal or Stripe will be refunded.
We use the following carriers to deliver our orders:
We retain the right for a 2 business day processing time before shipping. Generally though, products are processed and packaged within 24 hours of ordering, and are shipped out depending on the availability of shipper. i.e. USPS is closed on Sunday and Federal Holidays, and UPS is closed on Saturday and Sunday for Ground service and they have their own holiday schedule as well. We do venture away from the store and go on a few company holidays every year. If you order on or around one of our company holidays (which will be prominently displayed at the top of the webstore), the total days before shipping will take longer as we will not physically be present to handle the orders.
The rate charged for the shipping of your order is based on the size and weight of your products, and your location (Recipient addresses further from our store will cost more than those closer). Before the final checkout page, you will be shown the projected cost of shipping.
Media Mail. We offer the Media Mail option for books and other items that meet the USPS requirements for Media Mail. Understand that if any non-Media Mail item is mixed with Media Mail products in the cart, the system will remove the Media Mail shipping option to meet the USPS requirement.
All orders to Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, Puerto Rico, and US international territories will incur real-time shipping rates. Any free shipping threshold promos will be voided if the shipment is going to these non-contiguous states and territories.
Additionally, some products are not eligible for free shipping due to requirements established by the publisher. In these cases the exception will be prominently shown in the product page. Additionally, if there is a Paid Shipping item in the cart with any other items, the entire cart will not be eligible for free shipping to meet publisher requirements.
Other than those stipulations, we offer FREE SHIPPING on single orders of $100 or more after any rebates, coupons, or loyalty points have been utilized to Contiguous US locations.
We are also proud to offer shipping FREE OF CHARGE to all military and embassy APO/FPO/DPO addresses. It's a great deal for service members, families and friends and even those military personnel themselves who have a gaming scratch to itch.
International Shipping. Unfortunately, we cannot currently process international orders through the webstore. We have a workaround that is outlined in our FAQ under the title Do you Ship Internationally.
Preorder and Back Order Policy
Stone Valley Hobby & Games LLC uses several distributors and partnerships with game developers to ensure we receive product in a timely manner. We will always attempt to fill each and every order. For reasons beyond our control, delays, augmentations, or cancellations may be necessary. In situations where manufacturers release product in waves or partial quantities we start our shipping process at the oldest pre-orders/back-orders first. All preorders/back orders require full payment at the time the preorder/back order is placed. If the customer wishes to cancel their preorder/back order before shipment, we reserve the right to refund the amount of the preorder minus the associated PayPal or Credit Card fees.
We also reserve the right to cancel any orders for any reason at any time. If we need to cancel an order we will email the customer but are under no obligation to obtain permission or acknowledgement prior to cancellation. An example is if a manufacturer ends up not releasing a product at all. In these cases we will refund the entire amount and absorb the fees associated with the order.
We reserve the right to change our prices at any time. Again, an example would be if the distributor increases the prices immediately before releasing the stock passing the cost difference to us. If a price increase occurs we will notify you via email to keep you informed of the change, but this has not happened in any of our preorders yet as we usually absorb the price changes once the order has been made.
Communication is very important to us; please contact us if you have any questions regarding the preorder/backorder process.
