Effective Date: December 5, 2014
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF SALE CAREFULLY, AS THEY MAY HAVE CHANGED SINCE YOUR LAST VISIT.

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THESE TERMS OF SALE, DO NOT COMPLETE THIS TRANSACTION. PLEASE PRINT OR SAVE A COPY OF THESE TERMS OF SALE WITH YOUR ORDER FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.
Scope and Application
When a customer enters a brick-and-mortar store, the customer is bound by the store rules in effect on the date of his or her visit. Similarly, you are bound by the version of these Terms of Sale in effect on the date of each order you place through a Sales Channel. These Terms of Sale may change from time to time, so please review them upon submission of each order, even if you have reviewed them before.

For the aviodance of doubt, we are not the seller of record of yearbooks, yearbook accessories, and other school-sourced products unless our role of seller of record for such products is expressly stated on the Property. Sales tax on such products may or may not apply depending on whether the school is required to collect and remit tax in your state.
Order Placement back to top
To place an order on a Property, you will generally need to select the products you would like to purchase, add them to your shopping cart and/or click to enter the checkout process, provide us with delivery and billing information, provide any necessary acknowledgments and conduct any final review of your order, and submit your order. Prior to our Acceptance of your order (as defined below), an automatic e-mail acknowledgement of your order may be generated. Please note that any such automatic acknowledgement does not mean your order has been accepted by us. If you order a customized product, you agree and acknowledge that your payment method may be charged before goods are delivered. CHANGES AND CANCELLATIONS TO CUSTOMIZED PRODUCTS MAY NOT BE PERMITTED AFTER YOU HAVE SUBMITTED YOUR ORDER.
We regularly update and revise our products and product lines. The prices, quotations and descriptions made on this Property are subject to availability, may include precious and semi-precious metals and stones for which inventory levels and raw material prices may fluctuate, and are subject to availability. We may revise and discontinue products at any time or mark products as backordered or out of stock without notice to you, which may affect information in a saved online cart session. We cannot guarantee that all items are in stock or immediately available when you submit your order. We may reject your order (without liability) if we are unable to process or fulfill it. If this is the case, we will refund any prior payment that you have made for that item.
Order Acceptance, Title Transfer and Risk of Loss back to top
No contract will exist between you and us for the sale or supply of any products or services unless and until we accept your order by delivering your physically-fulfilled product to the shipping carrier, or providing you with a download link to or online access to the purchased product or service subscription ("Acceptance"). We may cancel your order at any time and for any lawful reason prior to Acceptance.
All physical product purchases by you from us are made pursuant to a shipment contract, which means that the risk of loss and title to physically-fulfilled products passes to you upon delivery of product to the shipping carrier. IF NO SIGNATURE IS REQUIRED FOR DELIVERY, YOU ACCEPT ALL RISK OF THEFT OR LOSS OF THE DELIVERED PRODUCT FOLLOWING DELIVERY TO THE DELIVERY LOCATION.
Prices; Shipping, Handling and Delivery back to top
Prices do not include taxes and fees; shipping, handling and/or delivery fees and charges; or any import duties that may be added by the order destination country as described below. Applicable taxes and other fees and charges will be added to your order during the checkout process. You are responsible for any shipping, handling and/or delivery charges, and state, local or other sales or use taxes, which may apply to your order. Shipping and delivery dates are estimates only.
We reserve the right, at any time, to change the prices and billing methods for products we offer for sale. In the event the price of a product is incorrect (regardless of whether it is an error in a price posted on the Property or otherwise communicated to you), then we reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to cancel your order and refund to you the amount that you paid (regardless of how the error occurred), and/or to contact you to let you know the correct price and ask you whether you still wish for us to fulfill your order at the correct price.
International Shipments back to top
When you order products for overseas delivery, shipments may be subject to customs and import duties, taxes and fees, which are levied when the package with the products arrives at your destination. Any such duties, taxes or fees shall be payable by you upon delivery, as we have no control over such charges and cannot foresee the amount charged (if any). You agree that you are the importer of record for goods and services you order and you shall comply with all laws and regulations of the destination country.
Taxes back to top
Unless you provide us with a valid and correct tax exemption certificate applicable to your purchase of products and the product ship-to location, you are responsible for sales and other taxes associated with your order.
