MEMBER ACCOUNT, PASSWORD, SECURITY, AND PAYMENTS
In order to purchase services through the OSMT’s website, clients must provide current, complete, and accurate information as prompted by the applicable registration form.

The OSMT does not have access to credit card numbers that are used to pay for services purchased directly through the OSMT website gateway.
Clients will choose a password and a user name and are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of their password and account. The OSMT will not be liable for any loss that may incur as a result of wrongful use of a password or account.
All orders must be prepaid by credit card (we accept VISA, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover) or by cheque made payable to 'OSMT'. Orders will not be processed or shipped until full payment is received and processed.
