PAYMENT, ORDERS, AND INTEREST
HOW DO WE COLLECT YOUR DATA
Advertised prices are in U.S. dollars and, unless otherwise noted, exclude international shipping costs and any taxes that may be imposed by the legal authority that governs the jurisdiction in which you reside. Terms of payment are within MindShare’s sole discretion, and unless otherwise agreed to in writing by MindShare, payment must be received by MindShare before acceptance of an order. Invoice amounts are due and payable within the period noted on the invoice, measured from the date of the invoice. MindShare may invoice parts of an order separately. Purchaser agrees to pay interest on all past-due sums at the highest rate allowed by law. MindShare reserves the unilateral right to cancel any orders at any time.
Unless otherwise indicated on the face of the invoice, the Purchaser is responsible for paying all taxes associated with the order. This includes any applicable state tax in the United States, and any VAT, Customs Fees, or Duty assessed on international purchases.
SHIPPING AND RISK OF LOSS
Shipping and handling are additional unless otherwise expressly indicated at the time of sale. Loss or damage that occurs during shipping by a carrier selected by MindShare is MindShare’s responsibility. Shipping dates are only estimates. Purchaser must notify MindShare of damaged or missing items to the order within seven (7) calendar days of receipt of the product(s).
For all Returns, Purchaser agrees to contact the Support Team (firstname.lastname@example.org) who will provide a required return authorization code. Purchaser is responsible for arranging return shipping within five (5) business days to MindShare after receipt of authorization code. MindShare recommends return shipping with signature confirmation and insurance to mitigate the risk of in-transit theft or damage.
After MindShare has received a returned product, Purchaser agrees to provide MindShare up to five (5) business days to inspect and process the return. Product must be received in the original packaging and original condition to receive the maximum refund. If any components are missing, damaged, or late, the refund will be prorated to recover the replacement expense at full retail value and market labor rates.
