If you do not agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you will not be permitted to make any purchases.
You must read, agree with, and accept all of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement before you may become a customer of Novatech Wholesale.

Without limiting the foregoing, our Service is not available to minors (under 18), persons who are suspended from our Service, or to persons who present an unacceptable level of risk.
