  1.  PRODUCTS

2.1.    Representations or Warranties:. The Sustainability Shoppe hereby represents and warrants that the Customer Products that it delivers will substantially conform to the description of the Customer Products set out on its Site and in the Email Order Confirmation.   Otherwise, The Sustainability Shoppe makes no representations and warrants about products on the Site and makes those products available for sale on an “as is, where is” basis without recourse to, or liability from, The Sustainability Shoppe in any manner or circumstance.  The Sustainability Shoppe has relied entirely on its suppliers for all information on the Site about the product, which it has reproduced on a best commercial efforts basis.   The Sustainability Shoppe’s obligations under the Agreement are subject to any provisions contained in the access license and terms of use found on the Site.  

 

2.2.    Title and Risk:  The Customer hereby acknowledges that all right, title and ownership in the Customer Products vests in and remains with The Sustainability Shoppe until The Sustainability Shoppe delivers the Customer Products to the Customer.  Similarly, for so long as The Sustainability Shoppe holds title to the Customer Products, The Sustainability Shoppe also bears the risk of loss should the Customer Products be damaged or otherwise rendered unusable prior to delivery.   Both title to the Customer Products and risk of loss will transfer to the Customer once the Customer Products are delivered to the location set out in the Email Order Confirmation.    

 

2.3.    Delivery Location:  The Sustainability Shoppe will deliver the Customer Products to the delivery locations supplied by the Customer shown in the Email Order Confirmation. The Customer acknowledges that The Sustainability Shoppe is relying entirely on this information without any further investigation or inquiry.  

 

2.4.    Delivery Due Date: The Sustainability Shoppe will use its best commercial efforts to deliver the Customer Products by the delivery due date identified in the Email Order Confirmation. The Customer acknowledges that the due date represents The Sustainability Shoppe’s best guess for delivery based on past practices and it could be delayed due to circumstances beyond The Sustainability Shoppe controls.   

 

2.5.    Delivery Costs: The Sustainability Shoppe will deliver the Customer Products at the sole cost and expense of the Customer.  The Sustainability Shoppe has disclosed the delivery costs to the Customer on its Site prior to placing the order and has confirmed those costs in the Email Order Confirmation.  The Sustainability Shoppe may pay the delivery costs and collect those expenses back from the Customer when processing the Customer’s order.

3.2.    Payment Processing.   This Agreement is conditionally, entirely for the benefit of The Sustainability Shoppe, on The Sustainability Shoppe successfully processing the Customer’s credit card or arranging for some other form of electronic payment prior to The Sustainability Shoppe delivering the Customer Products.  In the event that The Sustainability Shoppe does not receive payment in full prior to delivery, The Sustainability Shoppe reserves the right to cancel this Agreement on immediate written notice to the Customer.

5.2.    Survival.  The obligations in this Article 5 (Liability Limitations) shall survive indefinitely and shall not cease or expire even if the Customer returns the Customer Products to The Sustainability Shoppe for an exchange or full refund.   

  1.  REFUNDS AND EXCHANGES 

6.1.    Cancellation of Order by The Sustainability Shoppe:  The Sustainability Shoppe reserves the right to cancel the Customer’s order for the Customer Products at any time prior to delivery on immediate written notice.  In such circumstances, The Sustainability Shoppe shall refund the Customer’s payment in full and this Agreement shall be terminated without liability to either party.  

 

6.2.    Cancellation of Order by Customer:  Save and except as set out in a written cancellation, refund or exchange policy set out on the Site, the Customer may not cancel their order and terminate this Agreement.   In the event that no policy is set out on the Site, then the Customer is not entitled to cancel their order under any circumstances.
