Payments; Ordering & Availability; Billing and Continuous Subscription Services
You agree to provide accurate and up-to-date payment information at the time you order any Product. We have contracted with a third-party payment processor to facilitate purchases made on the Site. When you make a purchase through the Site, you will provide your payment details and any additional information required to complete your order directly to our third-party payment processor. You should be aware that online payment transactions are subject to validation checks by our payment processor and your card issuer and we are not responsible if your card issuer declines to authorize payment for any reason. For your protection, our payment processor uses various fraud prevention protocols and industry standard verification systems to reduce fraud and you authorize it to verify and authenticate your payment information. Please note, it is possible that your card issuer may charge you an online handling fee or processing fee. We are not responsible for this. In some jurisdictions, our payment processor may use third parties under strict confidentiality and data protection requirements for the purposes of payment processing services.
You agree to have sufficient funds or credit available upon placement of any such order to ensure that the purchase price will be collectible by us. After you place your order, we will send you a confirmation email (the “Order Confirmation”). We strive to provide accurate pricing information regarding the Products available on the Site. We cannot, however, insure against pricing errors. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to not process or to cancel any orders placed for a Product whose price was incorrectly posted on the Site as a result of an error. If this occurs, we will notify you by email. The Site may contain information regarding the availability of Products. In rare cases, a Product may be in stock when you place the order, and sold out by the time we attempt to process the order. Should this happen, we will notify you by email and cancel the item from your order. We also may offer some Products for sale before they have been manufactured or arrive at our warehouse. When you preorder these Products, we will ship them out once they are available. In rare cases, these items may not become available for shipping. Should this happen, we will notify you by email and cancel the item from your order.
Unless otherwise specified, prices quoted are exclusive of: (a) the costs of shipping or carriage to the agreed place of delivery; and (b) value added tax and any other tax or duty which (where applicable) must be added to the price payable. You agree to pay for taxes, shipping or carriage of the Products as such costs are specified by us when you submit your order.
Some of the Services that we offer, such as the never-run-out service, may consist of an initial period, for which there is a one-time charge, followed by recurring period charges as agreed to by you. You will have the ability to specify how regularly you would like to order any auto-replacing products. BY CHOOSING A RECURRING PAYMENT PLAN, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT (A) L'Apogée (OR OUR THIRD-PARTY PAYMENT PROCESSOR) IS AUTHORIZED TO CHARGE YOU ON A RECURRING BASIS (E.G., MONTHLY) FOR AS LONG AS YOUR SUBSCRIPTION CONTINUES AND (B) YOUR SUBSCRIPTION IS CONTINUOUS UNTIL YOU CANCEL IT OR WE SUSPEND OR STOP PROVIDING ACCESS TO THE SITE OR PRODUCTS. YOU MAY CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION AT ANY TIME BY EMAILING US AT firstname.lastname@example.org. YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL CHARGES INCURRED WITH RESPECT TO ANY ORDER PROCESSED PRIOR TO THE CANCELLATION OF YOUR SUBSCRIPTION. All recurring payments are fully earned upon payment.
We attempt to provide accurate descriptions of Products. We do not warrant, however, that the descriptions are accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free. If a Product is not as described, your sole remedy is to return the item, unless otherwise specified in writing by us. We occasionally run promotions or provide limited-time offers for our Products. Please review the promotion or offer for eligibility and other terms and conditions. All other information with respect to the purchase of Products from the Site can be found on the Order Help Page, or contact us, including our policies on shipping and tax, billing, order acceptance, gift cards, and returns and exchanges.
Your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the Order Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within 30 days after the date of the Order Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances and except in the case of pre-orders.
Your order will be delivered to the delivery address that you specify when placing your order. If we are unable to deliver to your delivery address, for example if your delivery address is geographically remote, we will notify you before we accept your order. We reserve the right not to deliver to any country that is prohibited by applicable export laws. Products comprised within the same order cannot be delivered to different addresses.
The Product(s) ordered will be at your risk from the time you receive the Product(s). Ownership of the Product(s) ordered will also pass to you upon your receipt of the Product(s), provided full payment of all sums due in respect of the Product(s), including any delivery charges, has been received.
If any Product you order is damaged or faulty when delivered to you or has developed a fault, you may have one or more legal remedies available to you, depending on when you make us aware of the problem, in accordance with your legal rights. If you believe a Product was delivered damaged or faulty or has developed a fault, you should inform us as soon as possible, preferably in writing, giving your name, address and order reference. Nothing in this section affects your legal rights.
Returns and Exchanges
We accept Products for returns and exchanges if requests are submitted within 07 days of receiving the order (in its entirety), the products arrive faulty or damaged. We don’t offer refund for change of mind. To return or exchange your Product(s), please email us at email@example.com with your name, address, order number and the Product(s) you would like to exchange or return. After we receive your written request, we will respond with further instructions about returning the Product(s) to us.

Limitation of Liability and Disclaimer of Warranties
The L'Apogée parties do not warrant that the site will operate error free or that the site, its servers, or the content are free of computer viruses or similar contamination or destructive features. If your use of the site or the content results in the need for servicing or replacing equipment or data, no L'Apogée party shall be responsible for those costs.
Except as otherwise provided by us in writing, the content and the services are provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis without any warranties of any kind. The L'Apogée parties disclaim all warranties, including, but not limited to, the warranties of title, merchantability, non-infringement of third parties’ rights, and fitness for particular purpose.
In no event shall any L'Apogée party be liable for any damages whatsoever (including, without limitation, incidental and consequential damages, lost profits, or damages resulting from lost data or business interruption) resulting from the use or inability to use the services or the content, whether based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence), or any other legal theory, even if such L'Apogée party has been advised of the possibility of such damages, or for any direct damages.
Some jurisdictions do not allow exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. In such jurisdictions, the liability of the L'Apogée parties shall be limited to the greatest extent permitted by law. Nothing in these terms affects any legal rights and remedies you have under local law.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the L'Apogée Parties from and against any claims, actions or demands, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising or resulting from your breach of this Agreement, any User Content or Feedback you provide, or your access to, use or misuse of the Content or the Services. We shall provide notice to you of any such claim, suit, or proceeding that triggers this indemnification obligation, and you agree to do the same by writing to the L'Apogée Legal Department at firstname.lastname@example.org. We reserve the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter which is subject to indemnification under this section. In such case, you agree to cooperate with any reasonable requests assisting our defense of such matter.
Except for small claims disputes in which you or L'Apogée seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court located in the county of your billing address or disputes in which you or L'Apogée seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, you and L'Apogée waive your rights to a jury trial and to have any dispute arising out of or related to this Agreement or our Services resolved in court. Instead, for any dispute or claim that you have against L'Apogée or relating in any way to the Services, you agree to first contact L'Apogée and attempt to resolve the claim informally by sending a written notice of your claim (“Notice”) to L'Apogée by email at email@example.com or by certified mail addressed to L'Apogée Legal Department. The Notice must (a) include your name, residence address, email address, and telephone number; (b) describe the nature and basis of the claim; and (c) set forth the specific relief sought. Our notice to you will be similar in form to that described above.
The arbitrator, L'Apogée, and you will maintain the confidentiality of any arbitration proceedings, judgments and awards, including, but not limited to, all information gathered, prepared and presented for purposes of the arbitration or related to the dispute(s) therein. The arbitrator will have the authority to make appropriate rulings to safeguard confidentiality, unless the law provides to the contrary. The duty of confidentiality does not apply to the extent that disclosure is necessary to prepare for or conduct the arbitration hearing on the merits, in connection with a court application for a preliminary remedy or in connection with a judicial challenge to an arbitration award or its enforcement, or to the extent that disclosure is otherwise required by law or judicial decision.
Any claim arising out of or related to this Agreement or our Services must be filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, the claim is permanently barred, which means that you and L'Apogée will not have the right to assert the claim. You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within 30 days of the date you first accepted the terms of this policy by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. In order to be effective, the opt-out notice must include your full name and address and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve disputes in accordance with this Term of Use.
If any portion of this Policy is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason, (a) the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall be severed from this Agreement; (b) severance of the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall have no impact whatsoever on the remainder of this Policy or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to this Policy; and (c) to the extent that any claims must therefore proceed on a class, collective, consolidated, or representative basis, such claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration, and the parties agree that litigation of those claims shall be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration. Further, if any part of this Policy is found to prohibit an individual claim seeking public injunctive relief, that provision will have no effect to the extent such relief is allowed to be sought out of arbitration, and the remainder of this Policy will be enforceable.
