3.3  Mastertent is not responsible for damage, loss or theft of products once delivered by the shipping Carrier to Your destination.  Please ensure that You take local precautions to protect delivered products, including but not limited to, having someone present to receive the shipment, asking Mastertent to ship with Signature Required, or, as available, selecting to pick-up at a local Carrier terminal, as available.
