You further acknowledge that, by acceptance of your submission, ASC does not waive any rights to use similar or related ideas previously known to ASC, or developed by its employees, or obtained from sources other than you.
Placing an Order for Products
You may choose to purchase products from our Site and you begin by placing an order for the desired products through our Site. After placing an order on our standard order form, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the product has been dispatched (“Dispatch Confirmation”). The contract between us (“Contract”) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation. The Contract will relate only to those products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such products has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation. All products ordered through our Site shall be subject to the payment processes described in Section 8 below.
Excluding content submitted by Subscribers, we aim to certify that the information on the website is accurate. Certain information may contain pricing inaccuracies or typographical errors, which we may update and correct without liability. We also reserve the right to limit quantities purchased by Subscribers and to change, suspend, or terminate a monthly edition, limited edition or promotion at any time without notice (including after an order has been submitted or acknowledged). We do not guarantee that all products described on our website will be available.
You may choose to subscribe to a subscription plan through the Service. The subscription plan to our Service consists of an initial charge followed by recurring periodic charges as agreed to by you. By entering into this Agreement, you acknowledge that your subscription has an initial and recurring payment feature and that you accept responsibility for all recurring charges prior to cancellation.
We will submit periodic charges (e.g., monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, annually) without further authorization from you, until you opt out of auto-renewal on your account page by using the “Cancel Subscription” button. The month that you order in is the first month that you will receive. For example, if you subscribe any time between January 1-31, your recurring subscription will begin with the January Box. The only exception to this rule would be if the monthly box sold out before the end of the month.
The Monthly plan cancellation request via your account page will take effect only if submitted prior to the 15th of the month that your existing subscription plan is due to renew. (e.g. you must cancel by February 14th if you want to cancel your March charge/box). Cancelling a subscription will not cancel and refund the delivery orders that have been paid for, it only stops future renewal charges. If you choose to subscribe between the 15th to the end of the month, you automatically agree to following month’s charge. The Fixed Rate cancellation request via your account page will take effect only if submitted prior to the 15th of the month that your existing subscription plan is due to expire. Kindly note that you will not be eligible for a refund on the remaining boxes in your subscription(s).
Kindly note that any of the subscription plans can be cancelled at any time prior to the 15th of the month that the applicable subscription is scheduled to expire. However, you will not be eligible for a refund on any remaining boxes in the subscription.
Billing, Shipping and Payment Policies
We ship within an estimated 14 business days after payment is received, which is subject to change at any time, without notice and liability. Typically, this occurs on the third and fourth week of every month, depending on the date of the charge run. As soon as your box is on its way, you will receive an email containing a tracking number that allows you to monitor its shipment. Kindly note that sometimes there may be shipping delays and/or product back-orders due to a stall involving the vendor/brand fulfillment process. You will not be eligible for a refund due to any unforeseen delays.
For United States addresses, it can take 7-10 business days for delivery from when the package leaves the warehouse. For Canadian addresses, it can take 10-14 business days for delivery from when the package leaves the warehouse. Address changes must be made by the first of the month in order to take effect for that month’s shipping. If the address is not updated in time, USPS has the right to charge a forwarding fee. You can also modify your payment method via your account page. We reserve the right at our absolute discretion not to renew your subscription at any time without giving any reasons for our decision.
Certain aspects of the Service, for example subscription plans, may be provided for a fee or other charge. If you elect to use paid aspects of the Service, you agree to the pricing and payment terms quoted on our Site and as we may update them from time to time. ASC may add new services for additional fees and charges, or amend fees and charges for existing services, at any time in its sole discretion. Payment for all products purchased through our Site must be by credit, debit card, Stripe or PayPal. Our system is only equipped to accept one payment method at a time. If your account has multiple options on file and there is a payment error, the transaction may default to the most recently used payment method. In the event that ASC suspends or terminates your account for your breach of this Agreement, you understand and agree that you shall receive no refund or exchange for any unused time on a subscription, any license or subscription fees for any portion of the Service, any content or data associated with your account, or for anything else.
You understand and agree that you shall receive no refunds and no exchanges for any Products once we or our supplier delivers these items to the carrier unless the Product received by you is damaged and/or expired.
All products purchased from or via the Service are transported and delivered to you by an independent carrier not affiliated with, or controlled by, ASC. The risk of loss for such products passes to you when ASC or our supplier delivers these items to the carrier. Title to products purchased on the Service passes to you when we receive full payment of all sums due for such products including any shipping and handling charges.
All information that you provide in connection with a purchase or transaction or other monetary transaction interaction with the Service must be accurate, complete, and current. You agree to pay all charges incurred by users of your credit card or debit card, used in connection with a purchase or transaction or other monetary transaction interaction with the Service at the prices in effect when such charges are incurred. You will pay any applicable taxes, if any, relating to any such purchases, transactions or other monetary transaction interactions.
Payments shall be processed through our site and shall be in the form you select when you either submit an order form or your register a paid Service. ASC reserves the right to withhold payment or charge back to your account any amounts otherwise due to us under this Agreement, or amounts due to any breach of this Agreement by you, pending ASC’s reasonable investigation of such breach. To ensure proper payment, you are solely responsible for providing and maintaining accurate contact and payment information associated with your account, which includes without limitation applicable tax information. You agree to pay all applicable taxes or charges imposed by any government entity in connection with your participation in the Service. If you dispute any payment made hereunder, you must notify ASC in writing within thirty (30) days of such payment. Failure to so notify ASC shall result in the waiver by you of any claim relating to such disputed payment. Payment shall be calculated solely based on records maintained by ASC. No other measurements or statistics of any kind shall be accepted by ASC or have any effect under this Agreement. We may withhold any taxes or other amounts from payments due to you as required by law.
Currently, we deliver to 51 states (including Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico) within the USA, as well as all territories in Canada. Unfortunately, we are unable to ship to locations where delivery would take place via sea or air transit (this limitation includes international APO/FPO addresses).
Shipments to Canada: Canadian customers will be the importers of record and may be responsible for the payment of all applicable federal and provincial taxes, including federal Goods and Services Tax (“GST”), Provincial Sales Tax (“PST”) and Harmonized Sales Tax (“HST”) (the “Taxes”), in the unlikely case the CBSA so chooses, even though this is relevant only for items worth more than CAD $2500.
