Please note that your use of the SEPTA site, including the Shop.SEPTA.org site (collectively, the "Site") constitutes your unconditional agreement to follow and be bound by these Terms of Use. Although you may "bookmark" a particular portion of this Site and thereby bypass this Agreement, your use of this Site still binds you to these Terms of Use. SEPTA reserves the right to update or modify these Terms of Use at any time without prior notice to you. For this reason, we encourage you to review these Terms of Use whenever you use this Site.

Privacy
SEPTA respects the privacy of our visitors and users of this Site. Please review our Privacy Statement.

Site Security
Users are prohibited from violating or attempting to violate the security of the Site, including, without limitation, (a) accessing data not intended for such user or logging onto a server or an account which the user is not authorized to access; (b) attempting to probe, scan or test the vulnerability of a system or network or to breach security or authentication measures without proper authorization; (c) attempting to interfere with service to any user, host or network, including, without limitation, via means of submitting a virus to the Site, overloading, "flooding," "spamming," "mailbombing" or "crashing;" (d) sending unsolicited email, including promotions and/or advertising of products or services; or (e) forging any TCP/IP packet header or any part of the header information in any e-mail or newsgroup posting. Violations of system or network security may result in civil or criminal liability. SEPTA will investigate occurrences that may involve such violations and may involve, and cooperate with, law enforcement authorities in prosecuting users who are involved in such violations. You agree not to use any device, software or routine to interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper working of this Site or any activity being conducted on this Site. You agree, further, not to use or attempt to use any engine, software, tool, agent or other device or mechanism (including without limitation browsers, spiders, robots, avatars or intelligent agents) to navigate or search this Site other than the search engine and search agents available from SEPTA on this Site and other than generally available third party web browsers (e.g., Mozilla® Firefox® Netscape® Navigator™, Microsoft® Internet Explorer™).

Accounts, Passwords and Security
You may register an account on this Site (including setting up a user identification “user id” and password). You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account information, including your password, and for all activity that occurs under your account. You agree to notify SEPTA of any unauthorized use of your account or password, or any breach of security. However, you may be held liable for losses incurred by SEPTA or any other user of or visitor of the Site due to someone else using your user id, password or account.
You may not use anyone else’s user id or password at any time without express permission and consent of the holder of that account. SEPTA cannot and will not be held liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with these obligations.

Order Acceptance
Please note that there may be certain orders that SEPTA is unable to accept and must cancel. SEPTA reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to refuse or cancel any order for any reason. Some situations that may result in your order being canceled include limitations on quantities available for purchase, inaccuracies or errors in product or pricing information, or problems identified by our credit and fraud avoidance department. SEPTA may also require additional verifications or information before accepting any order. SEPTA will contact you if all or any portion of your order is canceled or if additional information is required to accept your order. If your order is canceled after your credit card has been charged, SEPTA will issue a credit to your credit card in the amount of the charge.

Credit Card Sales
Once Shop.SEPTA.org has accepted your order, your credit card will be charged. The payment terms are contractual obligation between you and your credit card company. In the event of fraudulent or disputed charges, you must contact your credit card provider and deal with them under the terms and provisions of your contract with them, not SEPTA. If a credit card is stolen the maximum liability by law is $50. However, you need to contact your credit card provider under the terms and conditions of your agreement with them to facilitate the dispute process.
Pricing Information
While SEPTA strives to provide accurate product and pricing information, pricing or typographical errors may occur. SEPTA cannot confirm the price of an item until after you order. In the event that an item is listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect information due to an error in pricing or product information, SEPTA shall have the right, at our sole discretion, to refuse or cancel any orders placed for that item. In the event that an item is priced incorrectly, SEPTA may, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.
Prices and availability are subject to change without notice.

Quantity Limits and Dealer Sales
SEPTA reserves the right, at our sole discretion, to limit the quantity of items purchased per person, per household or per order. These restrictions may be applicable to orders placed by the same SEPTA account, the same credit card, and also to orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. We will provide notification to the customer should such limits be applied. SEPTA also reserves the right, at our sole discretion, to prohibit sales to dealers. It is illegal to sell SEPTA fare instruments unless under specific contract with SEPTA to do so.

SEPTA may not regularly review posted Comments, but does reserve the right (but not the obligation) to monitor and edit or remove any Comments submitted to the Site. You grant SEPTA the right to use the name that you submit in connection with any Comments. You agree not to use a false e-mail address, impersonate any person or entity, or otherwise mislead as to the origin of any Comments you submit.

SEPTA takes no responsibility and assume no liability for any Comments submitted by you or any third party.

Colors
We have made every effort to display the colors of our products that appear on the Site as accurately as possible. However, as the actual colors you see will depend on your monitor, we cannot guarantee that your monitor's display of any color will be accurate.

Indemnification
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless SEPTA from and against any and all claims, damages, costs and expenses, including attorneys' fees, arising from or related to your use of the Site.

Termination
These Terms of Use are effective unless and until terminated by either you or SEPTA. You may terminate this Agreement at any time, provided that you discontinue any further use of this Site. SEPTA also may terminate this Agreement at any time and may do so immediately without notice, and accordingly deny you access to the Site, if in SEPTA's sole discretion you fail to comply with any term or provision of this Agreement. Upon any termination of the Agreement by either you or SEPTA, you must promptly destroy all materials downloaded or otherwise obtained from this Site, as well as all copies of such materials, whether made under the Terms of Use or otherwise. SEPTA's right to any Comments shall survive any termination of this Agreement.
