4. Products and Services
Advertisements of specific offerings and services on these Websites are an “invitation to treat.” This means that the services offered on this site may change, prices may fluctuate, and the products may be available in limited amounts such that PLMA cannot fulfill all orders. In such an event, the User’s remedies are limited to the User’s choice of a full refund of the purchase price or a replacement product of equal value. Due to the nature of our industry, prices and varieties of products may change quickly and without notice. Prices may be incorrect, and the sales of products are governed by terms of sale, available upon written request.
In addition, the purchase of “futures” may be delayed from the time that you have emailed or clicked an order form on our Websites. PLMA is not responsible for any change in circumstances that may occur between when an order is placed and when it is confirmed for the User.

You are encouraged to notify PLMA of any misuse of your account by a third-party, or any attempted hacking of your account of which you become aware so that PLMA may protect you and other users to the degree it is able.
