OUR TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALES AND PURCHASE

In these terms and conditions, we set out the rules that apply if you buy any products from our sellers. By buying a product from a seller, you consent to these terms.

 

Activity Under Your Account

You are responsible for all activity carried out under your account. If someone else uses your account (with or without your permission) to buy products from our sellers, you will be liable to those sellers for the purchase funds.

 

Buying Products

Ethical Brandz does not make, store, or inspect any of the items sold through our website. Your contract for the sale and purchase of any product advertised on our website is with the seller of that product, not us.

Sellers may have their own, additional terms and conditions that govern your purchase from them. By buying a product you confirm that you have read any such additional terms and conditions and consent to them. If there is any discrepancy between these terms and conditions and any terms and conditions published by a seller, these terms and conditions shall prevail.

By buying a product, you confirm you have read the product description, will promptly pay the total fees for the product and its shipping, and will provide the seller with complete and accurate shipping information. Such fees may include sales taxes – including, but not limited to, Provincial Sales Taxes (PST), Goods and Services Tax (GST), or Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) – which, if applicable, you must pay in addition to the advertised price of the product.

You will not become the owner of a product until you have paid the seller for it in full and the seller has delivered the product to you.

You acknowledge that differences in computer or device displays mean that minor colour variations may exist between the product advertised on our website and the product you buy.

 

Deliveries

Sellers set their own delivery terms and use postal or courier services of their choice. Before buying a product, you should ensure that a seller’s delivery terms meet your needs.

If a seller charges for delivery, you must pay that charge in full before the seller will send you the relevant product(s).

 

Returning Products

Sellers set their own returns policies. If you wish to return any item, you should deal directly with the seller.

You acknowledge that some products sold through our website may have short shelf lives and/or not be suitable for a return because of (for example) hygiene considerations. If you buy such a product, you acknowledge that you may have no right to return the product unless it is faulty or not as described.

 

Disputes Between You and Sellers

If a dispute arises between you and a seller, you must do everything reasonable to resolve the matter directly with the seller.

We will not get involved in any dispute unless you can provide reasonable proof you (a) have been in dialogue with the seller, (b) have acted reasonably in trying to resolve the dispute, and (c) can point to a clear breach of our seller rules committed by the seller.

If we do agree to get involved in the dispute (and we do not have to do so), we will act as the sole arbiter. Without limitation, we may cancel the purchase, direct the seller to issue a full or partial refund to you, and/or decide that the purchase stands. You agree to abide by our decision.

 

Other Legal Information

You agree that you may not assign, transfer or novate your rights or obligations under these terms and conditions.

If we decide to change these terms and conditions, we will post the changes on this page. You should check this page regularly to stay up-to-date because you will be deemed to consent to those changes by continuing to use our website after the changes are published. The last time these terms and conditions were updated was on the 26th of October 2017.

The laws of Ontario, Canada, govern these terms and conditions and you agree to accept the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Ontario.
