You are prohibited from posting or transmitting any unlawful, threatening, libelous, defamatory, obscene, scandalous, inflammatory, pornographic, or profane material or any material that could constitute or encourage conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any law. Parts City will fully cooperate with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing Parts City to disclose the identity of anyone posting any such information or materials.

PRODUCT AND SITE CONTENT DISCLAIMER

Parts City does not warrant or represent that the colors of products displayed on your monitor are an accurate representation of the color of the product.
