1. Ordering Process
All advertisements on the Site are invitations to purchase and not offers to sell. JOULE reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to accept or reject the order once you have completed and placed your order.
You will receive online confirmation that your order has been received by JOULE after you place your order on the Site. This online confirmation that your order has been received by JOULE does not constitute acceptance of your order. Rather, the confirmation of acceptance of your order will be delivered via an automatic e-mail to the e-mail address associated with your account.
2. Rejection or Cancellation of Orders
There may be certain orders that JOULE must reject before acceptance or cancel after acceptance. JOULE reserves the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or reject your order for any reason and JOULE will contact you at the e-mail address provided in the order form of its decision to accept or reject your order. In the event that JOULE rejects the order, JOULE will have no obligation to fulfill your order and you will have no obligation to pay JOULE for the order. JOULE also reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to cancel any order after acceptance for any reason. Some situations that may result in your order being rejected or cancelled include:
• Limitations on quantities available for purchase;
• Inaccuracies or errors in product or pricing information; or
• A product recall on the item that you have purchased;
JOULE may also require additional verifications or information before accepting any order. JOULE will contact you if all or any portion of your order is rejected after your order has been placed but before it is accepted by JOULE or if additional information is required to accept your order.
The purchase of products on the Site is subject to availability. In the event that JOULE advises you that any products are no longer available, JOULE will have no obligation to fulfill your order and you will have no obligation to pay JOULE for the order.
By confirming your purchase at the end of the check-out process, you agree to pay JOULE the amount set out as the ORDER TOTAL in the Confirm Order and Shipping Address section of the checkout process, subject to adjustment as described herein (the “Purchase Price”). The ORDER TOTAL is quoted in US dollars and an estimate of all applicable taxes. The Purchase Price will be charged in US dollars to your selected method of payment. Please note that actual sales taxes are calculated on items as they ship, and therefore, due to mathematical rounding, there may be a slight adjustment to actual sales taxes owed and included in the Purchase Price from those estimated in your Order Total.
In the event that an item is listed at an incorrect price due to an error in pricing, JOULE will have the right, at JOULE 's sole discretion, to reject or cancel any orders placed for that item. In the event that an item is mis-priced, JOULE may, at its discretion, either contact you for instructions or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.
5. Quantity Limits and Dealer Sales
JOULE reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to limit the quantity of items purchased per person, per household or per order. These restrictions may be applicable to orders placed by the same account, the same credit card, and also to orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. We will provide notification to you should such limits be applied. JOULE also reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to prohibit sales to dealers or resellers. For purposes of these Terms of Sale, reselling is defined as purchasing or intending to purchase any product(s) from the Site for the purpose of engaging in a commercial sale of that same product(s) to a third party.
