Access to and use of the OptionCart Catalog constitutes acceptance of the following terms and conditions. Smartlab Software may update or change these terms at any time. It is the responsibility of the user to revisit the terms periodically, as the user is bound by the terms listed on this page. No venture or partnership between the user and Smartlab Software is formed by this agreement, the use of the Smartlab Software.com web site, or the use of the OptionCart Catalog.
All materials provided in the OptionCart Catalog are presented with the belief that they are in good working order, and that the structure is valid. However, Smartlab Software will not guarantee the completeness or functionality of any page or structure in the files or installation. The OptionCart Catalog is provided by Smartlab Software "as is" and "with all faults". No warranties or guarantees are provided for the OptionCart Catalog.
The user agrees to indemnify and hold Smartlab Software harmless
without exception or limitation from all liability, expenses,
claims, action, fees, losses or damages caused by the direct or
indirect use of the OptionCart Catalog at any time and by any party.
In no way will Smartlab Software be held liable for any use of the catalog
by the user or by third parties.
Web servers running OptionCart must have PHP 4 or higher running with standard default configurations, MySQL 3.23 or higher and phpMyAdmin. In addition, web users must have a Mals-E account for the use of this catalog, as no stand alone cart system is provided with OptionCart. The inventory control system of OptionCart requires the Mals-E Remote Call feature. Therefore, inventory control and sales storage through OptionCart will not be automated on any web site that uses third party payment systems that do not utilize this feature, which include but are not limited to LinkPoint, Mirapay, Netbanx, Nochex, PayByCheck and PSIGate. A list of these systems can be found at http://www.mals-e.com/processors.php. If PayPal is used as a non-secure payment type at Mals, it can be used with the OptionCart inventory system; otherwise, OptionCart cannot automate inventory control through that payment system. It is the user's responsibility to ensure that all of these requirements are met before purchasing the OptionCart catalog. If OptionCart is purchased for installation on a web server that does not have the above requirements, the user will be given a choice of having modifications made to set up the catalog on their server for an additional fee if possible, or they will receive a refund for the catalog license.
Smartlab Software will utilize an existing HTML template for the
catalog page design if desired. However, if that template contains
programming or scripting other than HTML, then Smartlab Software is not
required to integrate the user's design into the catalog system.
Templates must have placeholders where the different elements will
go, as described in the help files sent upon purchase. If any HTML
design work or fixes are required for the design to be implemented
with the catalog system, the user will be responsible for performing
these fixes. There is no guarantee that any template can be used
with OptionCart without modifications, other than the free templates
provided with the installation.
The user accepts all responsibilities for the use
of the OptionCart Catalog. Smartlab Software will not be held responsible
for any inappropriate use of a web site, shopping cart or company
policies from a company or individual using the OptionCart Catalog.

a server, even if the catalog is set up on a server that uses the
