All products offered for sale are subject to availability and Dreadnought Technologies™ acceptance of your order. After you place an order through a Dreadnought Technologies™ Site, we will send you an email acknowledging your order. This order acknowledgment means that your order has been received; it does not mean that your order has been accepted, shipped, or that the price of an item has been confirmed, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell; we are simply confirming that we received your order. Upon shipment of your order, we will send you an email. Dreadnought Technologies™ may also require additional information prior to accepting or processing any order.
Dreadnought Technologies™ reserves the right at any time to accept, decline or cancel any order or limit order quantity for any reason. If we cancel an order after you have already been billed, we will refund the billed amount.

Dreadnought Technologies™ may revise, discontinue or modify products at any time without prior notice to you and products may become unavailable without notice. Dreadnought Technologies™ shall have no liability of any kind if any product is not available.
Some product orders are shipped by a third-party fulfillment service provider. Delivery lead times vary, but most orders will be shipped within 15 business days unless otherwise noted. The delivery charge varies depending on the size and weight of the item. These charges will be included in the Shipping and Handling of your order. If eligible for shipment to Hawaii and Alaska, special rates apply. Over sized and extremely heavy items are marked on their product information pages as requiring a special delivery charge. Title to and risk of loss of product will pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier. Shipping times are estimates only, and not a guarantee that the product will be delivered on the specified date.

When ordering more than one item, please note your items may come in different shipments. Dreadnought Technologies assumes no liability for damaged, lost or stolen shipments.

Prices shown are in U.S. dollars. Dreadnought Technologies™ reserves the right to change prices for products displayed on the Site at any time, and to correct pricing errors that may inadvertently occur.

If an item’s correct price is lower than our stated price, we charge the lower amount and ship you the item. If an item’s correct price is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either (i) contact you for instructions about whether you wish to pay the correct higher price before shipping or (ii) cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation (whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit card or debit card charged). We cannot confirm the price of an item until your order enters the shipping process, nor will we charge your credit card until your order enters the shipping process. (Please note that your Order Acknowledgment means that your order request has been received; it does not mean that your order has been shipped or that the price of an item has been confirmed.)
The extent of any limited warranty for each product is as shipped with the product or as expressly stated on a warranty document or on a Dreadnought Technologies™ Site. Any warranty offered is limited to defects in material or workmanship, and repair or replacement is your exclusive remedy for any defective product. In no event shall we be liable for any special, incidental or consequential damages of any kind arising out of the purchase or use of any product, whether based on contract, tort, statute or otherwise. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from State to State. In addition, any warranties implied by law shall in no event extend beyond the duration of the express warranty offered, if any. Some States do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.
This return policy only applies to orders from a Dreadnought Technologies™ Site. If you purchased items from a dealer, please contact that dealer. You may return most new, unopened items within 30 daysof delivery for a refund minus a 15% restocking fee. We will waive this fee and also pay the return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error (you received an incorrect item, a defective item as outlined in our Warranty Information, etc.). If you cancel your order, and the core steel barrel has been cut, you will be charged a 15% restocking fee. If no work has been done on your order, there will be a 5% fee for credit card users. You should expect to receive your refund within thirty days of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period does not include the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days). Authorized returns must have a prior return merchandise authorization and may be subject to a restocking fee. Contact Dreadnought Technologies using the number or email address listed on the Dreadnought Technologies™ Contact Us page to obtain your return merchandise authorization number. All sales of customer-made products, discontinued items, items sold “as is,” and clearance items are final and may not be returned. You are responsible for any shipping, handling and insurance costs associated with the return item. All authorized returns must be shipped within 30 days of delivery, must be returned unused, complete and in its original packaging and must be accompanied with a copy of the invoice. For your protection, we suggest all returns be sent back by a traceable carrier such as UPS or FedEx. Dreadnought Technologies is not responsible for product lost in shipment.
