Before submitting an Order for the purchase of Products using this Website, you will move through several steps including:

2. Your Information
3. Review and Submit
4. Order Confirmed
When you submit your Order by pressing the button for "Order Confirmed" describing among other things, the Product(s) to be ordered, the purchase price, and any applicable charges for shipping and taxes, the Order will constitute an offer from you to HERLOWE to purchase the Product(s) described in the Order confirmation for the price and subject to the other charges, and terms and conditions as set out in the Order Confirmed section.
As previously mentioned, this Website and its contents are not to be construed as an offer to sell any product or service. Orders are not binding on HERLOWE until accepted by HERLOWE. HERLOWE's acceptance of your Order will be evidenced by return e-mail from HERLOWE to your e-mail address indicating that your Order has been accepted.
All prices and Product orders are quoted and will be processed in Canadian dollars. Although HERLOWE strives to provide accurate product and pricing information, errors may occur. HERLOWE reserves the right to correct any errors in pricing or product information and to modify the prices of products, at any time, without prior notice. HERLOWE cannot confirm the price of a product until after you submit an Order for the product. In the event that the price or related information of a product as described on the Website and/or the "Order Confirmed" section of the Order processing section of the Website is incorrect due to an error in pricing or product information, HERLOWE may, in its sole discretion, refuse or cancel the Order, whether before or after HERLOWE's acceptance thereof. If there is such an error in pricing, HERLOWE may cancel the Order and reverse any charges that have been applied and contact you to request that you place a new Order for the product at the correct price.
Any discounts offered are NOT valid with any other promotions including Loyalty Rewards. Each promotional discount is solely to be used on it's own for any purchase. For example, you receive 10% off for signing up - this discount cannot be used on any SALE items, nor in conjunction with your Loyalty Rewards.
CLAIMS OF NOT RECEIVED OR DAMAGED PACKAGES
All claims of not received packages/orders must endure a 10 day investigation involving the purchaser, the courier company, and HERLOWE beginning the day of the claim. The claim must be resolved before any possible refund is issued. If it is proven by the courier company that the package/order was delivered to the correct purchaser/recipient and address, no refund will be issued. If the package/order becomes "lost" by the courier, a replacement package/order will be shipped to the purchaser, or upon request, a refund will be issued.

DISPUTES AND AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE
Except where and to the extent prohibited by law, which may include the province of Quebec, and/or the US (United States of America) by using the Site, you and HERLOWE agree that, if there is any controversy, claim, action, or dispute arising out of or related to your use of the Site, or the breach, enforcement, interpretation, or validity of this Agreement or any part of it (“Dispute”), both parties shall first try in good faith to settle such Dispute by providing written notice to the other party describing the facts and circumstances of the Dispute and allowing the receiving party 30 days in which to respond to or settle the Dispute.
Both you and HERLOWE agree that this dispute resolution procedure is a condition precedent that must be satisfied before initiating any litigation or filing any claim against the other party. IF ANY DISPUTE CANNOT BE RESOLVED BY THE ABOVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEDURE, YOU AGREE THAT THE SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION FOR SUCH DISPUTE WILL BE DECIDED BY BINDING ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS MEANS THAT YOU WILL NOT HAVE, AND YOU WAIVE, THE RIGHT FOR A JUDGE OR JURY TO DECIDE YOUR CLAIMS, AND THAT YOU MAY NOT PROCEED IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, OR REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY. Other rights that you and we would have in court will not be available or will be more limited in arbitration, including discovery and appeal rights. All such Disputes shall be exclusively submitted to HERLOWE's Barrister & Solicitor for binding arbitration under its rules then in effect, before one Canadian arbitrator is to be mutually agreed upon by both parties.
The arbitrator, and not any federal, provincial, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute arising under or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of these Terms and Conditions, including any claim that all or any part of these Terms and Conditions are void or voidable. If you do not agree with these terms, please do no not use the HERLOWE website.
LINKS TO OTHER SITES
We may include links from our site to sites that are owned by entities that are not affiliated with HERLOWE. HERLOWE does not operate or control the content of these third party sites. We also do not control the goods or services offered through these sites. When and if you access one of these sites through a link on this Site, you do so at your own risk. When you click on the link from our Site to the other site, you actually leave the herlowe.com Site. HERLOWE expressly disclaims any liability for any issues you may experience while you are visiting any other site.
HERLOWE reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to limit quantities sold, terminate user accounts and to refuse or cancel any Order even if the Order has already been submitted, whether or not the Order has been confirmed or accepted and whether or not your credit card or pay account has been charged. In the event that your Order is cancelled after your payment has been processed, HERLOWE will issue a full refund to you.
TERMS OF PAYMENT
Terms of payment for Products purchased through this Website shall be determined in HERLOWE's sole discretion. Payment shall be made by Credit Card, Debit Card, or PayPal. Any payment made by credit card, debit card, or paypal shall be subject to the approval of the financial institution that has issued the credit card or other method of payment.
When customers are charged for their purchase, a preauthorization equal to the amount of the order will be applied to the credit/debit card used for the transaction at the time of order. Preauthorization is the common practice within the banking industry of authorizing electronic transactions done with credit/debit card and holding the balance as unavailable either until the merchant settles the transaction or the hold is removed. Depending on the cardholder’s banking institution, a preauthorized hold may initially appear as a charge. This bank hold is temporary, and only the actual charge will be applied to the card when the order is shipped.
Orders including multiple items may be shipped separately. Each individual shipment may have an additional preauthorization equal to the individual shipment value. Again, these holds are temporary and only the actual charge will be applied to the card when the order is shipped.
Please note, HERLOWE is not able to release the bank's temporary hold on authorized funds and cannot be held responsible for the policies of the customer's banking institution regarding the holding of preauthorized funds. Preauthorization fund holds last for varying periods, depending on the issuing card company's policy. Should a concern arise regarding preauthorization, we strongly suggest contacting the issuing credit card company or bank directly.
SHIPPING RISK OF LOSS AND TAXES
HERLOWE will ship Product(s) ordered by you according to the delivery method indicated at check-out and to the address indicated in the Order Confirmation. Delivery times provided by HERLOWE are only estimates and HERLOWE shall not be responsible for any damages or costs resulting from any delays in delivery of the Product(s) Ordered.
Unless otherwise stated, all prices quoted do not include shipping and handling charges, applicable federal, provincial or other sales or any other taxes or dues. Separate charges for shipping and handling and taxes will be shown on the Order Confirmation for each order, as applicable. Customers are responsible for all sales tax, use tax, goods and services tax, harmonized sales tax, and any other taxes and duties associated with the order which may be charged in their jurisdiction.
All Product(s) purchased from HERLOWE are delivered via third party delivery companies, pursuant to a shipping contract. You shall become the owner of the Product(s) and assume the risks of loss from the time of delivery by HERLOWE of the Product(s) to the third party delivery company.
