  1. Welcome to the Brownells, Inc. websites, which include but are not limited to www.Brownells.com, www.Sinclairintl.com, and www.Policestore.com (the “Websites”).  The following terms and conditions (together with any documents referred to in them) (collectively, the “Terms of Use”) apply to your use of the Websites, including any content, functionality and services offered on or through the Websites, whether as a guest or a registered user, or through mobile or desktop application versions of the Websites.  Please read these Terms of Use carefully before using the Websites. Additionally, please review our Privacy Policy to understand our practices.  By using the Websites you signify your consent to these Terms of Use and our Privacy Policy, incorporated here by reference.  If you do not want to agree to these Terms of Use or the Privacy Policy, you must exit the Websites.
  2. To access the Websites or some of the resources they offer, you may be asked to provide certain registration details or other information. It is a condition of your use of the Websites that all the information you provide on the Websites is correct, current and complete.  If you choose, or you are provided with, a user name, password or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, you must treat such information as confidential, and you must not disclose it to any third party. You agree to immediately notify Brownells of any unauthorized use of your user name or password or any other breach of security. You also agree to ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. You should use particular caution when accessing your account from a public or shared computer so that others are not able to view or record your password or other personal information.  We have the right to disable any user identification code or password, whether chosen by you or provided by us, at any time in our sole discretion for any or no reason, including, if in our opinion, you have failed to comply with any provision of these Terms of Use.
  3. The content on the Websites is for information purposes only and you agree that your use of and browsing in the Websites is at your risk.  In no event shall Brownells, Inc. its subsidiaries or affiliates and their officers, directors, employees or agents (“Brownells”), be liable to you for any direct, indirect, special, punitive or consequential damages resulting from any (i) errors, mistakes, or inaccuracies of content, (ii) personal injury or property damage, of any nature whatsoever, resulting from your access to and use of the Websites, (iii) any unauthorized access to or use of our secure servers and/or any and all personal information and/or financial information stored therein and whether or not Brownells is advised of the possibility of such damages. 
  4. You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Brownells, against all third party claims, actions or demands, liabilities, and settlements, including, without limitation, reasonable attorney's fees, arising in connection with your use of the Websites or resulting from, or alleged to result from, your use of the Websites or your violation of these Terms of Use.

  6. The Websites may contain interactive features that allow you to post, submit, publish, display or transmit to other users (hereinafter “post”) content or materials (collectively, “User Contributions”) on or through the Websites.  Any User Contribution you post to the Websites will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary, and we have the right to use, copy, distribute and disclose to third parties any such material for any purpose.  You represent and warrant that you own or control all rights in and to the User Contributions and have the right to grant Brownells the license granted in this paragraph.  You represent and warrant that all of your User Contributions do and will comply with these Terms of Use, and you agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Brownells and its licensors from any breach of this representation and warranty.  You understand and acknowledge that you are responsible for any User Contributions you submit or contribute, and you, not Brownells, have full responsibility for the legality, reliability, accuracy, and appropriateness of such content.  Any content and/or opinions submitted to the Websites, and all articles and responses to questions and other content, other than the content provided by Brownells, are solely the opinions and the responsibility of the person or entity submitting them and do not necessarily reflect the opinion of the Company.  We are not responsible or liable to any third party for the content or accuracy of any materials posted by you or any other user of the Websites.  We have the right to:
  • Remove or refuse to post any User Contributions for any or no reason in our sole discretion.
  • Take any action with respect to any User Contribution that we deem necessary or appropriate in our sole discretion if we believe that such User Contribution violates the Terms of Use, infringes any intellectual property right or other right, threatens the personal safety of users of the Websites and the public or could create liability for the Company.

Accordingly, we assume no liability for any action or inaction regarding transmissions, communications or content provided by any user or third party. We have no liability or responsibility to anyone for performance or non-performance of the activities described in this paragraph.
