The amended terms shall take effect automatically the day they are posted on the website. Your continued use of the website following any amendments will constitute agreement to such amendments.
Purchase Payment Options:
GAA accepts VISA, MasterCard, Discover Card, personal checks, company checks, money orders, cashier’s checks, wire transfers, and company purchase orders with approved credit. Please contact a Customer Service Representative for credit approval at 262-542-4856 or 800-306-8024. We charge your credit card when the order is first placed. A second charge may appear after your order ships for the shipping charges. Credit card orders shipped to a location other than your billing address may require additional verification.
Pricing & Availability:
Prices and availability are subject to change without notice. If a product is not in stock when you place your order (for example, not yet available or sold out), we will do our best to communicate this and inform you when we anticipate the product will be available. Anticipated delivery dates are dependent upon vendor supplies and other factors and are subject to change.
Products and packaging depicted may differ from stock available at time of shipment. We reserve the right to substitute equivalent items.
Payments and Finance Charge:
Customer shall purchase products in accordance with GAA’s price list in effect at the time of the order (less discounts, if any). Payment must be made in full by due date stated on invoice. Late payment is grounds for GAA to discontinue performance under these terms and conditions.
Returned checks are subject to a US$50.00 per check charge.
A finance charge of 1.5% per month (18% annum) will be assessed on all past due invoices.
User Material Furnished by You:
By furnishing User Material to GAA, (i) you grant to us a non-exclusive license (with the right to sublicense to our suppliers and our fulfillment partners) to use and reproduce such User Material to make custom products in fulfillment of your order(s) with GAA; (ii) you represent and warrant that you own and control all rights in and to such User Material and have the legal right and authority to grant the aforementioned license to us; and (iii) you agree to defend, indemnify and hold GAA and our officers, directors, employees, independent contractors, suppliers, and fulfillment partners harmless, in the event any User Material furnished by you infringes upon, violates or misappropriates any property, personal or proprietary right of any person or entity.
Pre-Production Artwork Approval:
With the placement of each new order GAA provides an email artwork proof to each customer at no charge, prior to production of his or her order. For this free service, it is up to the customer to review the proof carefully for all artwork, spelling, logo and copy positioning, imprint color, etc. errors. Once the customer has approved the email proof, any errors in the printing or embroidery of an order, previously shown on the email proof, and approved by the customer become the sole responsibility and property of the customer.
Defective Merchandise Returns:
GAA stands behind all merchandise it sells. Defective returns will be accepted for exchange or repair, at our discretion, within 30 days from the shipment date. No refunds or credit will be granted after 30 days.
Unauthorized or Refused Returns:
GAA will not accept unauthorized returns or exchanges. Packages without a Return Authorization (RA) number will be refused upon return to our facilities. To request a RA number, please contact a GAA Customer Service Representative toll free at 800-306-8024. Please have the following information ready when calling for an RA number: customer name, order number, item number and the reason for return. RA numbers are valid for 30 days after issue. Your RA number(s) must appear clearly on the shipping label of the return shipment. Additional charges may apply if the merchandise is not returned in 100% complete condition in the original packaging. We reserve the right to refuse a return on any product that does not meet these requirements.
Any claims against GAA relating in any way to your purchases from GAA shall be submitted to confidential arbitration in Waukesha County, Wisconsin. Arbitration under this agreement shall be conducted under the rules then prevailing of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration under this Agreement shall be joined to an arbitration involving any other party subject to this Agreement, whether through class arbitration proceedings or otherwise. In any such arbitration, the parties shall be responsible for their own costs, expenses and attorney’s fees. In the event that this arbitration provision is unenforceable, any litigation regarding this agreement or any transaction between the customer and GAA shall be brought in the state or federal courts located in Wisconsin and the customer hereby agrees and submits to such jurisdiction and venue as exclusive and proper.
Any disputes arising between you and GAA related to your use of the website, the content of the website, or any transactions made through the website shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Wisconsin without regard to conflicts of law. If any provision of this agreement shall be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
Title and Risk of Loss:
Title to items being purchased passes from GAA to purchaser at the time of shipping. Customer takes on full liability for safety and validity of the delivery address given to GAA at the time of purchase. GAA will not incur any forwarding costs on shipments. GAA shall not be responsible for damages or delays resulting from Acts of God, war, riot, seizure, terrorist activities, embargo or other acts or events outside of the reasonable control of GAA.
GAA policies are subject to change without notice. We do our best to ship all orders as rapidly and accurately as possible. However, GAA is not liable for late or delayed shipments or system failures. If you purchase items for export, you must obtain from the Federal government certain export documentation. Terms of GAA agreements with certain vendors in the website catalog may forbid us from exporting some products.

We will never sell your email address or any other information to another party. Customer information is shared only in specific instances as described below.
Agents: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, and processing credit card payments. They only have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, and may not use it for other purposes.
Protection of GAA and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; or protect the rights, property, or safety of GAA, our users, or others.

Product Samples Terms and Conditions
GAA’s sample program is established for the purpose of providing existing and potential customers the opportunity to sample and evaluate our products at no charge, given stated conditions are met. Specifically, the sample must be returned to GAA within fifteen (15) business days of sample(s) shipment, regardless of condition at the sample recipient’s expense . If it is not returned within that time, the cost of the sample and any shipping costs will be charged to the sample recipient. This requirement may be modified or waived on an individual basis at the discretion of GAA. Any modification or waiver of this requirement will be communicated to the recipient of the sample.
Absent any other agreement, samples are sent by courier service chosen by GAA.
By requesting and receiving a sample, you agree to review the sample and determine whether it conforms to your expectations. Unless agreed upon otherwise, this determination must be communicated to GAA within 15 business days. If the sample meets your expectations, GAA will fulfill a larger order of the item, under mutually agreed upon terms, that is consistent with the sample provided.
If you feel that the sample you receive differs in a material way from how it appears on the GAA website, in its showroom, or in another form of advertisement, the sample will take precedence as to how the product is represented for sale. If a sample is provided, GAA only warrants that a full order will be consistent with the sample.
