Redwood Plastics reserves the right to refuse any order for any reason. Pricing may change without notice, and in some cases, pricing errors may occur on the website, due to calculation errors or suddenly fluctuations in market conditions.  In those cases, Redwood Plastics may refuse an order, but will never charge any amount to your credit card without mutual consent of both parties. Redwood Plastics will not be liable for any damages related to pricing errors or changes in pricing structure. It should be understood that mere placement of an order online, does not automatically imply that Redwood Plastics will accept the order as it appears on the order confirmation. Each order must be manually verified and accepted by Redwood Plastics at the price, delivery, and terms stated on the order confirmation. Redwood Plastics makes every attempt to provide the most comprehensive and up-to-date information to all customers.
