Changes to this Purchasing Policy
We may update this Purchasing Policy from time to time. Updates will be effective upon posting.
All prices shown on the Website are in U.S. Dollars. We accept payment via American Express, Visa, and MasterCard. When you make a purchase with your credit card, an authorization hold in the total dollar amount of your order is placed on the card at the time of order placement; however, your credit card will not be charged until your order ships. If your credit card is not authorized or the total dollar amount of your order exceeds your credit limit, you will receive a message on the checkout page instructing you to try another method of payment.
Sales tax and/or goods and services tax, as applicable (individually and collectively referred to herein as "Sales Tax"), is calculated based on applicable federal and provincial tax laws. Typically, Sales Tax displayed during checkout is estimated until the order has shipped. Sales Tax may also be applied to shipping fees.
It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may list an incorrect price on the Website. If the product's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated, we will contact you and offer you the option to either confirm your order at the correct price or cancel your order. If the correct price at your order date is lower than the price stated, we will refund you the difference.
Your order number
We will assign an order number to your order and email it to you when we accept your order. Please tell us your order number whenever you contact us about your order.
If we cannot accept your order
If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the product(s). This might be because we have sold out of limited production run products or because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product.
We will seek to ensure that the Website does not have any technical problems and that products displayed are available. However, as our product lines are typically produced in limited production runs and released on our Website in product drops for which there is high-demand, we cannot guarantee the availability of the Website or that any products on the Website will be available for purchase. Accordingly, all orders placed through the Website are subject to availability and acceptance and Chowa. In the event that your ordered items are unavailable, we will notify you as soon as we can. We reserve the right to change the products listed on the Website without prior notice and/or may limit from time to time the quantity of products that may be ordered during a single buying session. We may also modify or discontinue any products on the Website. If Chowa discontinues a product you have ordered, you will receive a full refund for any product purchased but not yet shipped.

Class Action Waiver
Both you and intō waive the right to bring any controversy, claim or dispute arising out of or relating in any way to your use of the this Website or products purchased through this Website (collectively the “Dispute(s)”) as a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action, or to participate in a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action regarding any such claim brought by anyone else. (This waiver, and the similar waiver specified for arbitration proceedings, are generally referred to herein as "the Class Action Waiver.")
As limited exceptions to the Class Action Waiver:
- you may seek to resolve a Dispute in small claims court if it qualifies; and
- we each retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief from a court to prevent (or enjoin) the infringement or misappropriation of our respective intellectual property rights.
Jurisdiction and venue for any dispute shall be in New York City, New York . Each party submits to personal jurisdiction and venue in that forum for any and all purposes**.**
Agreement to Pre-Arbitration Notification
Agreement to Arbitrate Claims
Except to the limited extent noted below, of this Website or products purchased through this Website, and any controversy, claim or Dispute arising out of or relating in any way to your use of this Website, and/or your Account, or products purchased through this Website, shall be resolved by final and binding arbitration between you and intō.
The arbitration shall take place in New York City, New York in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedures of the American Arbitration Association. Unless either party or the arbitrator requests a hearing, the parties will submit their arguments and evidence to the arbitrator in writing. The arbitrator will make an award based only on the documents. This is called a Desk Arbitration. If any party makes a written request for a hearing within ten days after the American Arbitration Association acknowledges receipt of a claimant's demand for arbitration (or the arbitrator requests a hearing), the parties shall participate in a telephone or videoconference hearing. In no event shall the parties be required to travel to New York to participate in the arbitration.
If you decide to commence arbitration, the provider will require you to pay a filing fee (which currently is $125 for claims under $10,000). If your filing fee is more than $125, intō will reimburse you for any excess fee promptly after it receives notice of your arbitration. If the arbitrator ultimately rules in your favor, intō will also reimburse you for the $125 base filing fee.
If the arbitrator rules in your favor in any respect on the merits of your claim and issues you an award that is greater than the value of Palace Skateboards’ last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected (or greater than zero if no offer was made), then intō will pay you the amount of the award or $350, whichever is greater (in addition to reimbursing you for the base filing fee).
This arbitration agreement is subject to the Federal Arbitration Act and is enforceable pursuant to its terms on a self-executing basis. Either party may seek enforcement of this provision in any court of competent jurisdiction.
The arbitrator shall determine any and all challenges to the arbitrability of a claim. The arbitral award shall be judicially enforceable. Any court of competent jurisdiction may, and upon request shall, enter judgment on the arbitral award. Either party may seek confirmation (judgment on the award) and/or enforcement in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Notwithstanding any provision in the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedures to the contrary, and with the exception of Desk Arbitrations, the Federal Rules of Evidence shall govern the admissibility of evidence in any arbitral proceeding.
Both you and intō waive the right to bring any claim covered by this dispute resolution provision as a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action, or to participate in a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action regarding any claim covered by this dispute resolution provision brought by anyone else.
Notwithstanding any provision in the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedures to the contrary, the arbitrator shall not have the authority or any jurisdiction to hear the arbitration as a class, consolidated, representative, or private attorney general action or to consolidate, join, or otherwise combine the claims of different persons into one proceeding.
If a proposed class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action arbitration is initiated notwithstanding the above prohibition and it is finally determined by the arbitrator (or a court of competent jurisdiction) that the waiver specified herein is not enforceable, then the arbitration proceedings shall be bifurcated as follows and notwithstanding any provision in the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedures to the contrary: 1. The issue of arbitrability shall be determined by the Arbitrator pursuant to the applicable rules and substantive law. 2. Assuming the Arbitrator concludes that the arbitration may proceed, said arbitration shall be stayed, and the issue of whether to certify any alleged or putative class for a class action (or other representative) proceeding shall be presented to and decided by a court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator shall not have authority or jurisdiction to decide class certification (or any similar representative action) issues. The decision to certify or not certify a class action (or to otherwise permit the action to proceed on a representative basis) shall be appealable in the judicial proceedings consistent with the rules and law governing the appeals of interlocutory decisions or class certification (or similar) rulings specifically, if appropriate. 3. Once any issues regarding class certification (and/or similar representative requirements) have been finally decided by the court, the arbitrator will have authority to decide the substantive claims on an individual or a class (or other representative) basis, as may be determined and directed by the court.
The arbitrator(s) shall not have the power to commit errors of law or legal reasoning, make clearly erroneous factual findings, or abuse his or her discretion, and the award may be vacated or corrected on appeal to a court of competent jurisdiction for any such error.
Opting out of Dispute Resolution and Class Action Waiver
You may elect to opt out (exclude yourself) from the final, binding arbitration procedure and the class action waiver specified in these Terms of Service by doing the following: within 15 days of following the date you first agree to these Terms of Service, you must send a letter to intō inc. 26 Broadway New York, NY 10004, USA that specifies (1) your name, (2) your mailing address, and (3) your request to be excluded from the final, binding arbitration procedure and class action waiver specified in these Terms of Service. All other Terms shall continue to apply to you, including the requirement to participate in pre-dispute mediation. Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms of Service to the contrary, we agree that, if intō makes any future change to the dispute resolution procedure and class action waiver provisions (other than a change to intō's address), you may reject any such change by sending a letter to intō within 15 days of the change to the address provided above. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this provision. Your letter must be postmarked by the applicable 15-day deadline to be effective.

A cookie is a computer file consisting of letters and numbers which is installed on your device when you visit a website and which allow our Website to recognise a user and retain that user's preferences when they return. Cookies do not collect data, instead they serve to act as unique identifiers, or information caches, which can be used to identify a user's preferences, settings or previous activity and which in turn enable website operators to provide an optimised, improved and more individualised browsing experience.
Use of our Website may also result in Local Shared Objects (LSOs), including ‘flash cookies', being stored on your device. LSOs have a similar function to cookies, but are designed to function with specific applications (such as Adobe Flash Player). We may use local storage facilities in order to provide you with both online and offline functionality for our Website. For example, local storage may be used to store Website content on the device for access when the device is not connected to the internet.
Some internet browsers will temporarily store website data using a process known as ‘caching'. The creation of a website cache may improve loading speed and responsiveness and, in some cases, provide offline functionality. Most internet browsers support HTML 5 which permits website caching. Website caching typically requires greater storage capacity than cookies which, in turn, may provide greater improvements in speed and functionality.
Cookies distinguish you from other users of our Website. For example, we use them to keep track of the contents of your shopping cart once you have selected an item, to store delivery addresses if the address book is used. This allows us to optimise your individual browsing experience and improve our service to you. Our partners, including Shopify, Paypal and Google Analytics, drop cookies on your device when you browse our Website and make purchases.

You can also delete those which already exist using the settings on your browser and/or device (however, this may interfere with your use of our Website and adversely affect your browsing experience).
We use third party services, such as Google Analytics, to track and analyze online behavior data of users. These services may help inform, optimize, target and serve ads based your visits to our Website. We do this to better understand how you use the Website and Service, with a view to offering improvements for all users, and to tailor our business and marketing activities accordingly.
