Terms of Purchase

  1. When an order is confirmed, prices become locked-in and the order becomes a contractually binding agreement between the “buyer” and DefyTheGrid. By placing an order through the DefyTheGrid website or via telephone and agreeing to our terms and conditions, the customer enters into a contractually binding agreement with DefyTheGrid. The “buyer” agrees to send DefyTheGrid payment as contractually specified within 3 business days for orders placed via bank wire payment, within 7 business days for orders placed via check, cashier’s check or money order payment, and at the time of order for PayPal, Credit Card, and accepted cryptocurrencies. Submitting an order through the website, or by phone requires the “buyer” to agree to our full terms of use including DefyTheGrid’s order cancellation policy. DefyTheGrid reserves the right in its sole discretion to allow the dissolution of the contractually binding agreement between the “buyer” and DefyTheGrid by cancellation of your outstanding order. Order cancellations will incur any operational, hedging and/or market loss fees. Any cancellation requests must be filed via telephone during normal business hours. DefyTheGrid will evaluate any request to cancel an order on a case-by-case basis and only under extraordinary circumstances will a cancellation be approved. Cancellation fees are calculated as 5% of the order total or $35, whichever is greater, plus any applicable market loss. Market Loss is defined as the difference between the locked spot price of the metals at the time of the order and the spot price of the metals at the time of cancellation. The balance due to DefyTheGrid is to be paid within (10) business days. If we do not receive payment within this timeframe, DefyTheGrid reserves the right to send customer accounts to “collections” to retrieve cancellation fees. Any cost of collections activities to DefyTheGrid will be added to the balance due. Should the order enter legal proceedings, the amount owed would increase by 50% and all attorney fees incurred by DefyTheGrid would be the responsibility of the customer. Any market gains as a result of a cancelled order will remain the property of DefyTheGrid. Any order that remains unpaid outside of payment terms as described in DefyTheGrid Payment Policies is eligible for cancellation. DefyTheGrid reserves the right to decline, refuse or cancel any order with or without reason, regardless of payment method, or order confirmation. DefyTheGrid also reserves the right to cancel any order deemed questionable, suspicious, too significant of risk, incorrect in confirmed price, or if payment has not been received within a specified time frame.

Customer further agrees to hold DefyTheGrid harmless from all damages or liability arising from such error.
  5. Customer must notify DefyTheGrid in writing within 7 business days after receipt of material of any discrepancy, claim, or dispute arising from a transaction.
