3. Purchase of Products
The mechanics of ordering, purchasing, delivering Products, and return of purchased Products are referred to in PanGlobal's Linked Sites, which may be revised by PanGlobal from time to time. Please check these Sites at the time you place a purchase order to ensure that the Products may be available at such time.
PanGlobal's Linked Sites also contain the electronic purchase order form that you must use when ordering Products, whether the Products will be in printed or electronic format upon delivery. All information referred to in such form must be completed in full in order for PanGlobal to accept your purchase order. Within 96 hours of the time you submit any such completed purchase order form, PanGlobal will confirm to you, by e-mail to the email address set forth in your completed form, the Products you have ordered and whether such Products are "in stock" and available. If the Products are "in stock" and available, PanGlobal will expressly state that it accepts the order, subject to receipt of payment in accordance with the payment terms in PanGlobal's Linked Sites.
In certain cases, PanGlobal's confirmation of the Products you have ordered will not constitute acceptance and PanGlobal may direct you to a third-party website to complete the order and acceptance.
Subject to any other terms of non-acceptance expressly set forth in PanGlobal's Linked Sites, your order may not be accepted by PanGlobal if:
the Product is not "in stock" and available;
your payment is not authorized;
there is a website error concerning price or details;
or you cancel your order prior to delivery.
NOTWITHSTANDING ANY OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS SITE OR PANGLOBAL'S LINKED SITES, PANGLOBAL RESERVES THE RIGHT, AT ITS SOLE DISCRETION, TO REFUSE ANY ORDER FOR PRODUCTS.
Prices for Products are quoted in Canadian currency and payment is accepted only in Canadian currency. Costs of packaging, delivery, and shipping (export, import, customs, etc.) of ordered printed Products and the Canadian goods and services tax payable on all product purchases will be added to the total Product price and referred to in PanGlobal's e-mailed acceptance of the purchase order. You will be charged for the Products purchased at the time of PanGlobal's acceptance of the purchase order.
Return of delivered Products is available:
for retail customers – within 30 days following the electronic transmission or shipping date of the Products.
for educator/PanGlobal-approved resellers – within 180 days following the electronic transmission or shipping date of the Products.
In order to return any Products and obtain a refund from PanGlobal, a Return Authorization Form attached to this [PanGlobal's Linked Sites] must be completed in full, submitted to PanGlobal electronically within the applicable timeframe referred to above, and receipt of the same acknowledged by PanGlobal by return email (the "Acknowledgement") before the Products are returned. The return of the printed Products will be accepted only if printed Products remain in the original container and packaging, with any cellophane wrapping intact and the Notice to Reader sheet is included. You are responsible for arranging redelivery of the Products to PanGlobal and all costs of redelivery and related shipping costs to PanGlobal shall be borne by you. Electronically delivered Products are not returnable or refundable. Customized Products are not returnable or refundable.
Cancellation of an order prior to shipping is subject to a 10% cancellation fee of the unit price originally charged.
A return and processing fee of 20% of the purchase price will be charged by PanGlobal for all returns of Products ordered by educators/PanGlobal-approved resellers.
A return and processing fee of 20% of the purchase price will be charged for returns of Products by other customers.
Return and processing fees will be referred to in PanGlobal's emailed Acknowledgement. The Acknowledgement also shall contain or be accompanied by a Return Authorization Number and directions for the return of the Products. Each Products type requires submission by you of a separate Return Authorization Form (ie. A combination of various Products, such as e-books and textbooks or different ISBNs). When after sending back the Acknowledgement, PanGlobal receives actual delivery of the returned Products within the required timeframe in the condition referred to above, a credit or refund will be processed, less the related return and processing fees, within 30 days of receipt of delivery by PanGlobal of the returned Products. If you purchase Products by purchase order through a PanGlobal Account, the refund will be credited to your PanGlobal Account. PLEASE REVIEW THIS WEBSITE FOR ANY FURTHER DETAILS CONCERNING THE RETURN OF PRODUCTS.
Returns processes and terms for the return of any other third-party Products purchased through a third party's website accessed through this website or any PanGlobal site shall be governed by the terms of the applicable third party's website only.
