Musician's Friend Purchase Terms and Conditions
Other than as specifically provided in any separate formal purchase agreement between you and Musician's Friend, these terms and conditions (this “Agreement”) apply to all of your online purchases from the website at www.musiciansfriend.com (the “Site”) and may NOT be altered, supplemented, or amended by you through the use of any other document(s). Any attempt to alter, supplement, or amend this document or to enter an order for product(s) which is subject to additional or altered terms and conditions will be null and void, unless otherwise agreed to in a written agreement signed by both you and Musician's Friend.
By purchasing products and/or services from the Site, you agree to be bound by and accept this Agreement. Orders are not binding upon Musician's Friend until accepted by Musician's Friend. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. Musician's Friend will indicate its acceptance of an order by acknowledging your order by reply email or by shipping the ordered items to you.
MSRP is the manufacturer's suggested retail price. We may commonly sell products at prices lower than MSRP and, for any given product, no sales may have occurred at MSRP.
MSRP is a benchmark to compare our discounts from MSRP to pricing offered by other retailers. Whether other retailers sell at MSRP will vary by product, geographic location, type of store, and over time.
Although we periodically update the MSRP in our direct mail offerings and on our website as we receive them, in some cases manufacturers may change their MSRP without notice to us.
Please contact the manufacturer of a specific product for the most up-to-date MSRP information.
MSRP quoted for house or private label brands are developed internally in consideration of comparable name brand products. We may commonly sell such products at prices lower than MSRP and for any given product, no sales may have occurred at MSRP.
Although our limited time events are intended to be limited time events, our low prices offered during these events may continue in effect after the event.
Values associated with items labeled "free with purchase" are based upon MSRP.
Internet orders may be paid for using the following methods: VISA, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Musician's Friend Platinum Card, and PayPal. PayPal Credit is also available via web orders only. In addition to credit cards, for phone or mail orders you may pay by money orders, cashier's checks, and personal checks by mail. Just call us at 1-800-449-9128 to place your order, or download our mail form. All non-credit-card orders are subject to a 10-business-day hold. Cash is not a payment option that we accept at this time.
When your qualified purchase is charged to your Musician's Friend Platinum Card, no interest is assessed on your promotional purchase balance if you pay the promotional purchase balance in full by the end of your promotional period. If you do not, periodic finance charges will be assessed on the promotional purchase balance from the date of purchase. Minimum payments will be required on your promotional purchase balance during and after the promotional period. If minimum payments on any balances on your account are not paid when due, all special promotional terms may be terminated. Standard account terms apply to non-promotional purchases and, after the promotion ends, to your promotional purchases. For more information on the terms and conditions governing your use of your Musician's Friend Platinum Card, refer to your Platinum Card Disclosure.
Some products, including those identified as Hot Buys, Closeouts, Limited Quantity items, Factory B-Stocks and Free Gifts may be limited to stock on hand and are offered on a first come, first served basis.

California Transparency in Supply Chains Act
Effective January 1, 2012, the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (SB 657) requires retailers and manufacturers of a certain size doing business in California to disclose measures used to track possible slavery and human trafficking in their supply chains.
As part of our commitment to social responsibility, we have established Standards for Supplier Conduct. The standards cover topics including compliance with laws, voluntary labor, labor hours, hiring and employment practices, compensation, freedom of association and collective bargaining and the environment. We expect our suppliers to comply with legal requirements and operate consistently with our standards when working on our behalf. By supplying products to us suppliers are required to certify that they will abide by our standards.
We evaluate and address risks of human trafficking and slavery in our supply chain through a combination of internal and third party verification methods. We require suppliers to consent to audits to evaluate compliance with our standards for trafficking and slavery in our supply chain. We may conduct these audits through third-party audit firms. Audits are unrestricted and may occur with or without advance notice.
We require direct suppliers to certify that materials incorporated into products supplied to us comply with the laws regarding slavery and human trafficking of the country or countries in which they are doing business. For example, our standards provide that by supplying products to us suppliers are certifying that they comply with these laws. In some cases, we may require additional written confirmation of these certifications.
We maintain internal accountability regarding slavery and trafficking, and procedures for employees failing to meet our standards. Compliance with our standards are part of our employee policies, and failing to comply with the standards may result in disciplinary action or dismissal. Our standards are documented and available for our employees and suppliers. Special attention to our standards is required for employees and management who have direct responsibility for supply chain management. These employees receive training on human trafficking on slavery, particularly with respect to mitigating risks within the supply chain.
