Blackhawk reserves the right to determine, at its sole discretion, whether Submitted Data will be accepted for incorporation into Blackhawk Products.

ALL SITES, CONTENT, AND THE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SITES ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, WITH ALL FAULTS. NEITHER BLACKHAWK NOR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATED COMPANIES, NOR ANY OF THEIR LICENSEES, SUPPLIERS, FULFILLERS, OWNERS AND OPERATORS OF THIRD-PARTY PORTALS OR MERCHANTS MAKES ANY WARRANTY OR REPRESENTATION WITH RESPECT TO THE QUALITY, ACCURACY, OR AVAILABILITY OF ANY SITES.

Without limiting the foregoing, this disclaimer of liability applies to any loss or damage arising out of the customization, processing, storage or fulfillment of any material, Blackhawk Product, or Submitted Data, the inability to use a Site, any changes to a Site (or its products and/or services), or the unauthorized access to or alteration of your transmissions or data. Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitation or exclusion of incidental, consequential or other types of damages, so some of the foregoing limitations may not apply to you.

Furthermore, you agree to refrain from using the services offered through the Site, including ordering any Blackhawk Products, in any manner that would cause damage to the public reputation of Blackhawk, its affiliated companies, and their employees, shareholders, board members, Merchants, or third parties for which Blackhawk provides services. In the event that you use or publicly display any products ordered through the Site, including by display on the Internet, in order to intentionally bring harm to Blackhawk or any of its affiliated companies or their employees, or shareholders, or board members, or to owners or operators of Third-Party Portals, or Merchants, Blackhawk reserves the right to demand the immediate return of the Blackhawk Product(s) ordered from a Site, to invalidate, without refund, the value of any gift card included in such Blackhawk Products, and to pursue any and all further remedies available to Blackhawk and its affiliated companies under the law.7.

Gift Card Activation.
Plastic Gift Cards.

We may assign our rights and responsibilities hereunder without notice to you.

Such amendments and modifications will be effective immediately upon giving you notice by any means including, but not limited to, posting on the applicable Site. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede all other communications, written or oral, with regard to any Site.
The failure of Blackhawk to enforce any right or provision in these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by Blackhawk in writing.
