CALIFORNIA PROPOSITION 65

After passing the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, (hereinafter referred to as “Proposition 65”) the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment has established a website to provide the public with information on chemicals, products and locations often associated with Proposition 65 warnings. These warnings inform Californians about their exposures to chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.  Visiting their website (P65Warnings.ca.gov) regularly will help you learn about these chemicals and how you can reduce your exposure to them.

Proposition 65 requires businesses to provide warnings to Californians about significant exposures to chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. These chemicals can be in the products that Californians purchase, in their homes or workplaces, or that are released into the environment. By requiring that this information be provided, Proposition 65 enables Californians to make informed decisions about their exposures to these chemicals.  Proposition 65 also prohibits California businesses from knowingly discharging significant amounts of listed chemicals into sources of drinking water.

While Proposition 65 does not restrict or regulate sale of goods containing listed chemicals,  this law does specify maximum permitted "safe harbor" limits for listed substances, as there are no corresponding minimum amounts.  Any detectable amount of a listed substance requires sellers to warn consumers against a risk of possible exposure.  Proposition 65 lists only four of six phthalates regulated by AB 1108 and CPSIA (DEHP, DBP, BBP and DIDP).  One additional phthalate (DnHP), not regulated by CPSIA or California AB 1108, is listed under Proposition 65.  In addition to the use of Silica and n-Hexane, certain Phthalates, a family of chemicals that make plastics soft and pliable, are also commonly used in the manufacture of PVC vinyl materials used in tarps, covers and similar materials.

Proposition 65 requires California to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. This list has grown to include approximately 900 chemicals since it was first published in 1987.  To obtain a list of those chemicals that may be identified in Prop 65, please click here.  Further, California residents using this website or accepting deliveries of products hereby are deemed to have accepted appropriate warning in accordance with Proposition 65.

SALES TAXES, APPLICABLE LAW AND SEVERABILITY

Tarps Now conducts its business exclusively from its headquarters located in St. Joseph, Michigan.  As a resident business of the State of Michigan, Tarps Now reserves the right to collect Michigan Sales Taxes in connection with deliveries made within the State of Michigan. By visiting or purchasing from Tarps Now, you agree that the laws of the State of Michigan, without regard to principles of conflict laws, will govern the terms and conditions of purchases and Site Use, and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and Tarps Now.  In addition, you hereby agree that as a customer of Tarps Now, either residing or not residing in the State of Michigan, you shall be exclusively responsible for reporting and paying any and all applicable sales, use, local, vat, or any similar state or local taxes. You should consult your state and local tax laws to determine compliance with tax laws and regulations in your area, as some states may require us to provide you notice regarding state use tax at the time of purchase, an annual purchase summary, and/or report your annual untaxed sales to that state.

For purchases where a sales or use tax is applicable, you will see the tax calculated on the checkout page before you are asked to confirm the purchase, and we will use reasonable commercial efforts to calculate and remit the correct amount of tax required on each taxable purchase on a best efforts basis only. We do not guarantee the accuracy of the amount of any tax we represent to you as the amount of tax owed, as minor errors may occur owing to the inability to accurately track multiple taxing districts, cities, counties, state or local “tax holidays”.  Further, we do not guarantee the accuracy of the timing of tax rate changes or the application of certain taxes to categories of items we sell, and as a result of any errors, we may over-collect, under-collect or inaccurately calculate such taxes. In consideration of our allowing you to access and use of the Site, and our calculating, collecting, remitting or notifying you of sales or use taxes required on your purchases on a best efforts basis, you hereby waive your right to any and all claims that taxes collected or reported on any purchase is incorrect in any respect, and you further agree to hold us, together with our officers, directors, employees, agents, representatives, manufacturers and shippers harmless, without limitation, with respect to any harm, claims, losses or damages you may incur as a result of any error in our calculating, collecting, remitting or notifying you of the taxes you may owe for your purchases or for the delivery of products or services thereby. We provide this data as a reference to assist you in determining any applicable sales or use tax, noting our calculations may or may not match the data in your records, and may not reflect gifts or shared accounts. You hereby further agree to timely remit any such payment due to city, county, state or other such local taxing authorities, as applicable. If any provision of these conditions shall be deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable by a Court of competent jurisdiction, that condition shall be deemed severable, and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining terms and conditions set forth herein.

ENFORCEABILITY

Tarp Now® controls its Website and other websites from its offices in St. Joseph, Michigan, United States of America.  Thus, you further agree that any legal action, proceeding or other matters relating to any alleged breach of contract stemming from your access to, or use of, the Website, or websites or applications owned by us, or any related services, goods and materials, shall be exclusively governed by applicable U.S. Federal law or the laws of the State of Michigan.
