Prices and Taxes
Best Brands is committed to maintaining and updating the Website as much as possible so that it reflects the prices and services in effect at Best Brands. However, prices are subject to change without notice. The price of some online items may vary depending on your shipping address. The total of your invoice is displayed on the page where you confirm your order and see the summary description of it. Please note that prices are in Canadian dollars and do not include applicable taxes. Taxes are included in your order total and displayed separately during the ordering process. Taxes are determined according to applicable local, provincial, or federal laws. The tax rate charged is based on the shipping address you provide when placing your order.
Complaints or Returns
In the event of an error in your order, our corrective policy comes into effect. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to report such an error. Depending on your agreement with the customer service agent, Best Brands, will exchange, supplement, or credit the incorrect products. Best Brands is continually improving and encourages you to send them your comments and suggestions.
Best Brands advertises on the Website only those products that can be ordered and delivered. Some products may not be available at the time of your order. Adding a product to your “cart” or “wish list” does not guarantee that it will be available at the time you place your order. In this case, a customer service agent will contact you by referring to the information you provided in your customer profile. You can then modify or cancel your order.
Best Brands reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to limit the number of items purchased per person, per family, or per order. These restrictions apply to orders made from the same account, same credit card, and may also be based on the same billing or delivery address. Best Brands reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to prohibit or refuse to accept sales to retailers or resellers.
Acceptance of an Order
Once the order is submitted and confirmed, you cannot make any further changes to it. Best Brands reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to cancel or refuse any order for any reason. For example, the following situations could result in the cancellation or rejection of your order: (i) the unavailability of any product to process the order; (ii) an inaccurate statement regarding a product or a price; (iii) failure to confirm or obtain authorization to charge the order amount to your credit card; or (iv) problems relating to the identification of the person placing the order. We may also do additional verifications or obtain other information before confirming your order. Best Brands may contact you to let you know that some or all of your order has been canceled or that it needs additional information to complete and accept your order.
Delivery of orders placed through the Website is only available in delivery territories covered by Best Brands.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in these terms and conditions shall have the effect of limiting any right you have as consumer under public law which may apply to you.
