5. BUYING, SHIPPING, DELIVERY

Goods will not be shipped until payment has been received and processed by us. In cases where credit is afforded to you, charging your account is considered receipt and processing. Credit terms are negotiated separately from this; however, failure to meet the obligations thereof constitutes failure to abide by this policy and we may apply sanctions or take measures afforded by those credit terms as well as our policies. Unless otherwise indicated, taxes are not included in prices. Taxes, where applicable, will be calculated at time of payment. All goods are shipped free on board, uninsured. All shipping insurance is the responsibility of the buyer. Our default currency is the Canadian dollar. We may offer transactions in currencies other than the Canadian dollar, and may provide mechanisms in our systems that afford you control over which currency you are transacting in; however, unless otherwise stipulated, transactions are made with the Canadian dollar. We will endeavour to provide versatile and reliable payment methods; however, we accept no responsibility for any damage or loss you incur as a result of using them. We are not under any obligation to assist you in the process of investigating, reconciling or otherwise managing or transacting with the entities that provide payment methods on our behalf. Each payment method may have policies that shall be construed in addition to, and not in place of, these policies. This is intended in the broadest of terms.

We select the shipper and method; however, there may be cases where we might extend to you a choice of shippers, or where you prefer and stipulate a particular shipper. In these cases, we will endeavour to coordinate with the shipper specified by you, but will revert to our choice of shipper if unable to do so. When you select a particular shipper, you will be solely responsible for all shipping costs.

6. ACCURACY

We endeavour to ensure that our online pricing is accurate; however, we always verify prices as part of our fulfillment and shipping process. If an item is shown online at less than the actual price, we will honour the online price and ship. If the online price is more than the actual price, and you have overpaid, we will contact you for instructions before shipping. In any case, however, where the price as advertised is obviously the result of a typographical error or malicious attack (e.g. $1.00 for a $1,000.00 item), the sale shall be cancelled. All options are at our discretion.

We do not guarantee availability. Online inventory counts are constantly being updated. While we endeavour to ensure that our online inventory counts are accurate, errors may occur. We make every effort to keep all items in stock. If we cannot fill an order immediately, we will contact you to determine if you want to partially ship the available items or wait until we can process the entire order. We make no guarantee whatsoever in respect to the time it will take to stock items or deliver.

Products are new unless otherwise stipulated in the description. Codes allude to nothing and serve only to differentiate between products.

7. RETURNS

Claimant must be original owner. All products must have been purchased directly from us within thirty (30) days, unless otherwise stipulated. Proof of payment (e.g. original receipt) and identity may, at our option, be required. We may demand photographs, written reports and other evidence prior to issuing an RMA. Products may be repaired, replaced or a credit issued, at our option. All products must be returned in original condition, with original packaging, complete with all parts and components - including tags, printed material, etc. All returns must be accompanied by the RMA (a printed copy may suffice) fixed to the outside of each box or parcel, facing out so the RMA number is clearly visible from the outside of the boxes (this may be enhanced by printing the RMA number on the boxes); however, do not write on or affix documents to the outside of the product packaging, if any. Return products sent without an RMA will be refused or disposed of, without being opened. We will refuse COD shipments. Special sale, special order, one-of-a-kind and similar products cannot be returned. You must ship RMA within fifteen days of issue, or within the time period provided at the time. We pay for RMA shipping in advance. Return freight (from us to you) is your responsibility and must occur within ten (10) days of the goods being ready to ship. Claims that a product was "defective on arrival" must be made within five (5) days of receipt. We may at our sole option and discretion honour returns by remorseful buyers, depending on jurisdiction (contact us for details). Remorse must be declared within thirty (30) days of purchase. We will charge a fifteen percent (15%) restocking fee, minimum twenty-five dollars ($25.00). Discrepancies, short/mis-ships or short box claims must be reported within five (5) days of receipt. We will pay for shipping in these cases.

8. CANCELLATION

You can cancel an order that has not been fulfilled or shipped by contacting us; however, if the order has been picked, packed or prepared you will be charged a fifteen percent (15%) restocking fee, minimum twenty-five dollars ($25.00). We will not be held responsible for delays caused by the dispatch or execution of your request, regardless of how those delays occurred. Once your order has been fulfilled or shipped, it cannot be cancelled.

In such a case, we will provide you with written notice of such claim, suit or action.

12. GOVERNANCE

Our entire relationship with you, and our policies in particular, are governed by the laws of the Province of Ontario (Canada).

This constitutes the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter and supersedes and replaces all prior or contemporaneous understandings or agreements, written or oral, regarding such subject matter. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision or portion hereof to be unenforceable, that part (or sentence or word or letter) shall be deemed severable and shall be severed, and the remaining provisions shall continue in full force and effect.
