If you do not agree to these terms and conditions, please do not use this site.
Prices and Taxes
Prices listed on this web site for products or services, unless otherwise noted, are exclusive of shipping charges, and of any applicable value-added, sales, use, excise, transfer, transport, or other tax, tariff or duty of any sort imposed by any government authority (“Taxes”). Customers are solely responsible for all Taxes payable in connection with the provision of products or services.
Promotion and Coupon Codes
Multiple coupon codes cannot be used simultaneously. When buying bulk volume through the website for special tiered discounts, no coupon code can be used.
Shipping & Delivery
Standard Marketing Partners, LLC (referred to in these Terms and Conditions as “Standard,” or sometimes “we” or “us”), generally ships items within one or two business days of our receipt and acceptance of an order. If there is a delay affecting our ability to ship generally, we will attempt to conspicuously post that fact on this site. We fill domestic orders using United States Postal Service Priority Mail and United Parcel Service, which generally result in delivery within two to three days. Requests for use of a courier service or for overnight shipping cannot be processed on this web site; however, we generally can accommodate these requests if you place your order by phone at the telephone number first appearing above. Standard requires a signature for all orders with a value of $250 or more.
WE ARE NOT LIABLE FOR
Delayed Shipments: We will make our best effort to deliver your shipment according to our regular delivery schedule.
Circumstances Beyond Our Control: We are not liable if a shipment is lost, mis delivered, damaged, or delayed because of circumstances beyond our control.
Extent of Our Liability: We make no warranties, express or implied. Our liability for a shipment that is not delivered is limited to a refund of the order amount donated by the member.
Unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing, TIME IS NOT OF THE ESSENCE, and any delivery date requested or provided is an estimate only. Standard is not responsible for delays or for non-performance resulting from causes beyond its reasonable control, including without limitation laws, rules, regulations or acts of any government, embargoes, blockades, armed conflict, terrorism, labor disputes, delays of carriers or suppliers, shortages of material, accidents, fires, floods, weather conditions and any other acts of God.
Unless otherwise noted on this web site, delivery of products is FAS (Incoterms (2000), the international rules for the interpretation of trade terms of the International Chamber of Commerce) Standard’s facility where the products you order are located at the time of shipment. This means that you will be charged for the cost of shipping, and title and risk of loss will pass to you upon Standard’s delivery of the products you order to the U.S. postal service or courier service.
Standard ships the USA currently and is planning on starting international shipments. All international sales are subject to all applicable U.S. and foreign export controls (including, without limitation, the Export Administration Act of 1979, the Export Administration Regulations promulgated thereunder, the U.S. Arms Export Control Act and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations), and by placing an order through this web site, you affirm that you will comply with all such applicable export controls and regulations.
You will be the importer or exporter of record and are responsible for all required licenses, permits and authorizations. Customs and import duties may apply to international sales. Those charges are the responsibility of the recipient of your order and vary from country to country. It is your responsibility to check with the appropriate authorities to verify whether the country to which you are having products delivered permits the importation of those products, and whether customs or import duties or similar charges will apply. Standard is not responsible for any direct, indirect, punitive, or consequential damages that arise from improper international shipping practices.
Standard accepts returns and offers a full refund, no questions asked, if the product is returned and received by Standard within thirty (30) days after it was delivered to the destination you specified. You will receive a full refund for all unused and unadulterated portions. For example, if twenty five percent of the product purchased has been used or otherwise depleted, a refund of seventy five percent of the price will be credited to the customer. If the product is returned unopened and unused, a one hundred percent refund will be provided. Unless you return products within the thirty day period specified above, you conclusively will be deemed to have accepted the products in full. Customers are responsible for the shipping cost of returning items to Standard.
If a package is lost after we ship it, which does occasionally occur, Standard will not be responsible if the tracking information lists the order as “delivered,” which means UPS or the courier service delivered the product to the address specified. If the package is sent to an address other than the one you specified, upon return of the original package to Standard, Standard will reship the order. Please note that Standard is not responsible for errors of USPS or courier services, or if you provide or confirm an incorrect address. It therefore is very important that you ensure that the address you give to us is exactly correct, as any mistake could delay delivery and will entail extra expense to you. If you place an order by phone, we will read the delivery address (and other information you provide) aloud and repeat it to you, to help you be sure it is correct.
