11. Gift Cards / Gift Certificates

This policy / disclaimer refers to Oklahoma House Bill 1986, the Gift Certificate and Gift Card Disclosure Act, which took effect November 1, 2005.

We have no obligation to pay interest on the value of the gift certificate or gift card (unless otherwise provided by law).
