Terms and Conditions
Welcome to the HeliPlaqueTM web site.
Your security is protected according to our Security Policy.
Your purchases are governed by our Return Policy.
Availability of Products
We maintain an inventory of raw materials (used helicopter rotor blades, wood, Challenge Coins, etc.). However, one or more of these raw materials may be temporarily exhausted. In such cases, we will make every reasonable effort to keep the web site up to date. Therefore, we reserve the right to place certain products on backorder status (when we expect delivery of raw materials at some specific future date) or remove it from availability altogether. We will never retain payment for a product which is not readily available.
The products on this site should be considered a work of art. They are made by mounting a cross-section of a real helicopter rotor blade, which have been in service on the helicopter model described, onto real wood. Each rotor blade cross-section will likely show signs of the blade's use and wear when in-service on the helicopter (including, but not limited to, dings, scratches, dents, and/or sun damage). Each rotor blade cross-section will also show evidence of the cutting process that is used to obtain the cross-section, and it may be particularly evident on the interior honeycomb of the blade, which is made of thin aluminum. In fact, the cutting process can sometimes leave sharp edges. Though we take precautions to smooth the surfaces as best as possible, the plaques should not be touched, particularly by small children. The wood of each plaque will have slight variations in knot pattern, color, and grain. However, since each plaque is custom made, we do our best to ensure that each piece is comes together as a high-quality piece of artwork which properly honors the services provided by the helicopter and the person who receives the plaque.
Any material, information or other communication, including, without limitation, data, questions, comments, suggestions or the like (collectively, the "Communications"), that you transmit or post to this site, except the information collected in your profile or as the inscription for a plaque, will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary. HeliPlaque will have no obligations in connection with any of the Communications. Furthermore, at the sole discretion of HeliPlaque, the Communications, including all data, images, sounds, text and other things embodied therein, may be edited by or on behalf of us, may or may not be posted to this site, and may be used by us or our affiliates for any purpose, including reproduction, disclosure, distribution, transmission, publication, broadcast, and posting. The Communications may be used for any and all commercial or non-commercial purposes, including, but not limited to, developing, manufacturing and marketing products using such information. You are prohibited from posting or transmitting to this site any Communications that are unlawful, threatening, libelous, defamatory, obscene or pornographic, or that would otherwise violate any law. In addition, you are prohibited from posting or transmitting any material that could constitute or encourage conduct that would be considered a criminal offense or give rise to civil liability. We hereby notify you that we will cooperate fully with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity of, or help identify or locate, anyone posting any such information or materials.
