HANOVER shall automatically charge and withhold the applicable sales tax for orders to be delivered to addresses within Pennsylvania, Washington, Colorada and California and any other states or localities where HANOVER deems that such withholding is required or advisable.

 

Order Acceptance Policy

Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. HANOVER reserves the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline your order for any reason. HANOVER further reserves the right any time after receipt of your order, without prior notice to you, to supply less than the quantity you ordered of any item. Your order will be deemed accepted by HANOVER upon shipment of products that you have ordered. Title to goods and all risk of loss passes to you upon delivery to the common carrier. All orders placed with a total order amount over $1,000.00 (U.S.) must obtain pre-approval with an acceptable method of payment, as established by our credit and fraud-avoidance department. We may require additional verifications or information before accepting any order. HANOVER is a reseller to end users and does not accept orders from resellers, exporters, wholesalers, any businesses of any kind for commercial resale or any other customers who intend to resell.

 

No Responsibility To Sell Mispriced Products Or Services

HANOVER shall have the right to refuse, reduce or cancel any orders placed for products listed at an incorrect price, rebate or refund, or containing any other incorrect information or typographical errors. HANOVER shall have the right to refuse, reduce or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has been confirmed and whether or not your credit card has been charged. If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is canceled, then HANOVER shall issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the charge.

Procedure for making claims of Copyright Infringement

Introduction. We respect the intellectual property rights of others, and require that the people who use this Site do the same. If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes a copyright infringement, please follow the instructions in the following policy.

This policy is intended to implement the procedures described in Title II of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. Section 512 (DMCA) for the reporting of alleged copyright infringement. It is the policy of Hanover Corporation (“Company”) to respect the legitimate rights of copyright owners, their agents, and representatives. Users of any part of the Company computing system are required to respect the legal protections provided by applicable copyright law.

Designated Agent. The Company’s Designated Agent to receive notification of alleged infringement under the DMCA is Reese Verschelde, 2709 Commerce Way, Philadelphia, PA 19154, (215) 698-4000, rverschelde@Hanover.com. Upon receipt of notification of claimed infringement, Company will follow the procedures outlined herein and in the DMCA.

Complaint Notice Procedures for Copyright Owners. A notice of alleged copyright infringement to the Designated Agent must include the following:

A. An electronic or physical signature of the copyright owner or a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;

B. Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notice, a representative list of such works at that site;

C. Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit the Company to locate the material;

D. Information reasonably sufficient to permit the Company to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted;

E. A statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and

F. A statement that the information in the notice is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. Failure to include all of the above information may result in a delay of the processing of the DMCA notification.

Notice and Takedown Procedure. It is expected that all users of any part of the Company computer system will comply with applicable copyright laws. However, if the Company is notified of claimed copyright infringement, or otherwise becomes aware of facts and circumstances from which infringement is apparent, it will respond expeditiously by removing or disabling access to the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity. Company will comply with the appropriate provisions of the DMCA in the event a counter notification is received by its Designated Agent.

Repeat Infringers. Under appropriate circumstances, the Company may, in its discretion, terminate authorization of users of its system or network who are repeat infringers.

Accommodation of Standard Technical Measures. It is Company policy to accommodate and not interfere with standard technical measures it determines are reasonable under the circumstances (i.e. technical measures that are used by copyright owners to identify or protect copyrighted works).
