Some links on this site may let you leave HitLights's site. The linked sites are not under the control of HitLights and HitLights is not responsible for the contents of the linked site, any linked site contained in a link site, or any changes or updates to such sites. HitLights provides links to you only as a convenience, and the inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement by HitLights of the site. You understand further that the Internet contains unedited materials some of which are sexually explicit or may be offensive to you. You access such materials at your risk.

In the event an order is placed with HitLights on an item where an errant price has been advertised, you agree that HitLights’s sole responsibility to you will be to promptly notify you of the pricing error and allow you the option to either purchase the item at the correct current HitLights price or choose to withdraw your order of the item that was subject to the pricing error.
Under no circumstances, including, but not limited to, negligence, shall HitLights be liable for any indirect, special, exemplary, or consequential damages that result from the use of, or the inability to use, the site, the site materials, or the software, even if HitLights has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Applicable law may not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability or exemplary, incidental, or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. In no event shall HitLights's total liability to you for all damages, losses, and causes of action (whether in contract or tort, including but not limited to, negligence, or otherwise) exceed the amount paid by you, if any, for accessing this site. Because some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, the above limitation may not apply to you. In such states, HitLights's liability is limited to the greatest extent permitted by law.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless HitLights, its officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors, suppliers and any third party information providers to the site from and against all losses, expenses, damages and costs, including reasonable attorneys' fees, resulting from any violation of this Agreement by you.
