All products that Matt 514 sells through the Site (the “Products”) are provided by third parties and are not manufactured or supplied by Matt 514.

If you are interested in a Product that is currently on back order, email Matt 514 at support@Matt 514.com or call Matt 514 at 800-690-3736 and Matt 514 can tell you when the Product will be back in stock. Sometimes with the volume of orders Matt 514 will receive, a Product may go out of stock before Matt 514 is able to post a notification on the Site. If this happens after you purchased that Product, Matt 514 will contact you directly to discuss possible options.

Product prices may be inaccurately displayed on the Site due to system or typographical errors. While Matt 514 makes every attempt to avoid these errors, they may occur. Matt 514 reserves the right to correct any and all errors when they do occur, and Matt 514 does not honor inaccurate or erroneous prices. If you purchase a Product with a listed price that is lower than its actual price, Matt 514 will, at Matt 514’s discretion, either contact you to notify you of the correct price before shipping the Product or cancel the order and notify you of such cancellation.
