The Terms are the entire agreement between you and OpenBroadcaster Inc. relating to THE WEBSITE and supersede any prior or contemporaneous agreements on that subject.

You agree to ensure payment for any items you may purchase from us and you acknowledge and affirm that prices are subject to change. When purchasing a physical good, you agree Io provide us with a valid email and shipping address, as well as valid billing information. We reserve the right to reject or cancel an order for any reason, including errors or omissions in the information you provide to us. If we do so after payment has been processed, we will issue a refund to you in the amount of the purchase price. We also may request additional information from you prior to confirming a sale, and we reserve the right to place any additional restrictions on the sale of any of our products. For the sale of physical products, we may preauthorize your credit or debit card at the time you place the order, or we may simply charge your card upon shipment. You agree to monitor your method of payment. Shipment costs and dates are subject to change from the costs and dates you are quoted due to unforeseen circumstances.


When you make a purchase on THE WEBSITE, you agree to provide a valid instrument to make a payment. Pay attention to the details of the transaction, as your total price may include taxes, fees, and shipping costs, all of which you are responsible for paying.

When you provide a payment instrument to us, you confirm that you are permitted to use that payment instrument.

If you pay by credit or debit card, we may obtain a preapproval from the issuer of the card for an amount as high as the full price. If you cancel a transaction before completion, this preapproval may result in those funds not otherwise being immediately available to you.

We may cancel any transaction if we believe the transaction violates these Terms, or if we believe doing so may prevent financial loss.

In order to prevent financial loss to you or to us, we may contact your funding instrument issuer, law enforcement, or affected third parties (including other users) and share details of any payments with which you are associated, if we believe doing so may prevent financial loss or a violation of law. Payment for any on-going services is billed automatically until notification that you would like to terminate your access to the services.
