To order any Books or other products, you must be at least eighteen (18) years of age or the applicable age of majority in your jurisdiction. You will be required to give us a valid credit card number (VISA, MasterCard, American Express or any other issuer then accepted by us) and associated payment information at the time you order Books or any other products hereunder, including all of the following: (i) your name as it appears on the card, (ii) the credit card type, (iii) the date of expiration of your credit card, (iv) billing address, and (v) any activation numbers or codes needed to charge your card. Brain&Paper currently does not accept cash and checks, although in the future we may change this policy. Your credit card issuer agreement governs your use of your designated credit card, and you must refer to that agreement and not this Agreement to determine your rights and liabilities as a cardholder. You agree that no additional notice or consent is required before Brain&Paper invoices the credit card for all amounts due and payable. By providing Brain&Paper with your credit card number and associated payment information, you agree that Brain&Paper is authorized to immediately invoice your account for all fees and charges due and payable to Brain&Paper as a result of your purchase of any Books or other products. You agree to immediately notify Brain&Paper of any change in your billing address or the credit card used for payment hereunder. Brain&Paper reserves the right, at any time, to change its prices and billing methods for Books and other products sold, either immediately upon posting on the Website, or by e-mail delivery to you.
4.2 Fees and Charges.
You agree to pay all fees and charges incurred in connection with your orders and purchases (including any taxes imposed on your orders and purchases, including, but not limited to, sales, use or value-added taxes, unless you provide Brain&Paper with sufficient evidence that the order and purchase is made solely for the resale or redistribution of the Book or other product to your customers) at the rates in effect when the charges were incurred. Brain&Paper may automatically charge and withhold such taxes for orders to be delivered to addresses within any jurisdictions that it deems is required. When you order Books or other products for overseas delivery, you may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied when the package with the Books or products arrives at the destination that you specified. Any charges for customs clearance have to be borne by you, as Brian&Paper has no control over such charges and cannot foresee the amount charged (if any). Since customs policies vary from country to country, you should contact the customs office in the country where you have us ship your Books or other products to get more information. Please be also aware that you are considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of such country.
You must notify us in writing within seven (7) days after receiving your credit card statement, if you dispute any of our charges on that statement, or such dispute will be deemed waived. Billing disputes should be notified to the following email address: email@example.com If Brain&Paper does not receive payment from your credit card issuer or its agent, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand by Brain&Paper or its agents.
All sales of Books and other products are subject to Brain&Paper’s then-current return policies, as posted on the Website.
- Order acceptance policy.
Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not signify Brain&Paper’s acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. Brain&Paper reserves the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline your order for any reason. Brain&Paper further reserves the right any time after receipt of your order, without prior notice to you, to supply less than the quantity you ordered of any item. Your order will be deemed accepted by Brain&Paper upon our delivery of the products that you have ordered. We may require additional verifications or information before accepting any order.
- Title and Risk of Loss.
All sales of Books and other products are made through shipping agent. Title and risk of loss to each shipment of the Books and other products shall pass to you upon transfer to the shipping agent.
