Product descriptions

We attempt to be as accurate as possible in describing our products. However, we do not warrant that product descriptions or other content of our website are accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. Slight variations may occur due to photo resizing or processing, computer monitor display settings, variations in materials and for technical and other reasons.

Credit card: you may pay via Visa, Mastercard or American Express. Payment by credit card is due in full at the time an order is placed. All credit cards must be issued by a Canadian bank. Your rights as a cardholder are governed by your card issuer agreement and not this agreement. You agree to notify us within sixty (60) days after any discrepancy appears on your credit card statement or such discrepancy will be deemed waived. If we do not receive payment from your credit card issuer or its agent, including as a result of a chargeback, you agree upon our demand to pay all amounts due. Please note that in the event you dispute an order via chargeback, we reserve the right at our option, to seek reimbursement of any related costs incurred by us, to turn any past due account over to collections and/or report delinquent payment to credit bureaus. We will not be responsible for any unauthorized amounts billed to your credit card by a third party.

Account: in our discretion, payment may be made by established account with us. Our standard payment terms for account are net thirty (30) days from the date of invoice unless otherwise amended in writing. Payments not made when due are subject to a late payment service charge at a rate of 18% per annum or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower.

If applicable, you are responsible for paying any sales, use, value-added or other taxes imposed on your purchases

Shipment and delivery

Unless otherwise indicated at the time of ordering or by subsequent notification from us, shipments will be made via local carriers. If your order is accepted and the items selected are in stock, your order will normally ship within the time indicated on our website. All ship and delivery dates specified on our website are estimates only and are subject to change. We will not be responsible for delays by the carrier. Risk of loss and title to ordered items pass to you upon delivery to the shipping carrier. It shall be your responsibility to file any available claims with the carrier.

Returns and refunds

All sales are final and binding. No returns and refunds are allowed unless the items received are damaged or received items are different from the items ordered. All items that are damaged in shipment or incorrectly shipped only will be eligible for return or refund specifically within 30 days from purchase date. All returned items must be in new condition and include all shipped items or components. Items are not eligible for return if they show any signs of wear or have been used or altered from their original condition in any way. We will pay the cost of return shipping if your return is the result of the erroneous shipment. In other cases, return postage will be paid by you and will be deducted from any refund you are owed.

To return an item, you must contact customer service during the applicable return period and request a return authorization (ra) number. An ra will not be issued if the applicable return period has expired or if the requested return information is not supplied. No returns will be accepted without an ra number. You must securely package the product (together with the return authorization materials), affix the designated delivery label and arrange for return shipment to us within 30 days of issuance of the ra number. You will have liability for loss and damage to products in transit, and we highly recommend that you insure all returns at your cost. You must retain proof of return shipment and delivery of returned products. Only merchandise received by us will be eligible for replacement or refund upon passing internal quality control standards. Received product will be subject to strict quality control standards and will be examined regarding condition, completeness and compliance with the return policy. Items returned in an unsatisfactory condition or otherwise not meeting these criteria will be refused and may be returned to the customer. We will use reasonable efforts to credit refunds within 14 days after receipt of returned products. Refunds will be made in the same form of payment originally used for purchase. Returns not made in compliance with any part of this return policy will not be eligible for replacement or refund.

Limitation of liability

In no event will we be liable to you for any incidental, special, punitive, exemplary, or consequential damages arising from or connected with this agreement or your use or the performance of any product, regardless of whether we know or have reason to know of the possibility of such damages. Some provinces do not allow exclusion of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.

In no event will our liability for any claim of any kind, whether based in contract, warranty, tort, strict liability or otherwise, for any losses or damages arising out of, connected with, or resulting from, this agreement or the performance or breach thereof, or any product or the use or performance thereof, exceed the amount paid by you for the related product hereunder.

Indemnification

You agree to indemnify, defend and hold company harmless from and against any and all liabilities and costs (including reasonable attorney’s fees) incurred by us or our affiliates, employees, or representatives arising out of your breach of this agreement or from other liabilities arising out of your use of our website or of your account. You agree not to settle any such claim or incur any liability or admission of guilt on our behalf without our consent. We reserve the right to assume the defense and control of any matter subject to indemnification by you.

Terms of use and severability

Your use of our website and its content is subject to our terms of use and information provided by you in connection with your order is governed by our privacy policy. In the event of a conflict between our terms of use or privacy policy and these terms of sale, these terms of sale will control. We reserve the right to make changes to our site, policies, terms of use, privacy policy and these terms at any time. If any part, term or provision of these terms shall be held illegal, unenforceable or in conflict with any law of a federal, state or local government having jurisdiction over these terms, the validity of the remaining portion or portions shall not be affected thereby.

Choice of law

This agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Province of Ontario, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law.

Arbitration

Please read the following section carefully because it requires you to arbitrate disputes and it limits the manner in which you can seek relief. To the fullest extent permitted by law, these terms of use, and any claim, dispute, action, cause of action, issue, or request for relief relating to these terms of use, this website, or the products, services or content available through this website (a “claim”), will be governed by the laws of Ontario, Canada, without giving effect to any conflicts of laws principles that require the application of the laws of a different jurisdiction. To the fullest extent permitted by law, any claim will be resolved by binding arbitration under the commercial arbitration rules of the Canadian Arbitration Association (“caa”), rather than in court (except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify, and you or we may seek injunctive or equitable relief in court to stop infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights). The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to the enforcement of this agreement to arbitrate. To the fullest extent permitted by law we each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. This arbitration provision does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, province, or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court (other than small claims court) rather than in arbitration you and company each waive any right to a jury trial and irrevocably consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located in the Province of Ontario in connection with any such action. You and company waive any objection based on lack of personal jurisdiction, place of residence, improper venue or forum non convenient in any such action.
