Risk of Loss
Risk of loss and title for items purchased from Tastesfrom.com pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier or, if such items must cross an international border, then the risk of loss and title pass to you when they clear customs.
Returns, Refunds, and Title
Tastesfrom.com does not take title to returned items until the item arrives at our fulfillment center. At our discretion, a refund may be issued without requiring a return. In this situation, Tastesfrom.com does not take title to the refunded item. For more information about our returns and refunds, please see our Sales and Returns Policy.
Tastesfrom.com attempts to be as accurate as possible. However, Tastesfrom.com does not warrant that product description or other content of any Tastesfrom.com Service is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a product offered by Tastesfrom.com itself is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition.
"List Price" means the suggested retail price of a product as provided by a manufacturer, supplier or seller. We regularly check List Prices against prices recently found on the Tastesfrom.com site and other retailers. Certain products may have a "Was Price" displayed, which is determined using recent price history of the product on the Tastesfrom.com site.
With respect to items sold by Tastesfrom.com, we cannot confirm the price of an item until you order. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items in our catalog may be mispriced. If an item's correct price is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation. Other merchants may follow different policies in the event of a mispriced item.
We generally do not charge your credit card until after your order has entered the shipping process or, for digital products, until we make the digital product available to you.
Tastes From Software Terms
In addition to these Conditions of Use, the terms found here apply to any software (including any updates or upgrades to the software and any related documentation) that we make available to you from time to time for your use in connection with Tastesfrom.com Services (the "Tastes From Software").
Parties other than Tastesfrom.com operate stores, provide services, or sell product lines through the Tastesfrom.com Services. In addition, we provide links to the sites of affiliated companies and certain other businesses. We are not responsible for examining or evaluating, and we do not warrant the offerings of, any of these businesses or individuals or the content of their websites. Tastesfrom.com does not assume any responsibility or liability for the actions, product, and content of all these and any other third parties. You should carefully review their privacy statements and other conditions of use.
Disclaimer of Warranties and Limitation of Liability
THE LAWS OF CERTAIN JURISDICTIONS, INCLUDING QUEBEC'S CONSUMER PROTECTION ACT, DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OR THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES. IF THESE LAWS APPLY TO YOU, SOME OR ALL OF THE BELOW DISCLAIMERS, EXCLUSIONS, OR LIMITATIONS MIGHT NOT APPLY TO YOU, AND YOU MIGHT HAVE ADDITIONAL RIGHTS.
THE Tastesfrom.com SERVICES AND ALL INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) AND OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE Tastes From SERVICES ARE PROVIDED BY Tastesfrom.com ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING. Tastesfrom.com MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE OPERATION OF THE Tastesfrom.com SERVICES OR THE INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE Tastesfrom.com SERVICES, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING. YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE Tastesfrom.com SERVICES IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK.
TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY APPLICABLE LAW, Tastesfrom.com DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF TITLE, MERCHANTABLE QUALITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. Tastesfrom.com DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE Tastesfrom.com SERVICES, INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE Tastesfrom.com SERVICES; ITS SERVERS, ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS, OR E-MAIL SENT FROM Tastesfrom.com SERVICES ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS.

Applicable Law and Disputes
(Not applicable to Quebec consumers) Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any Tastesfrom.com Service, or to any products or services sold or distributed by Tastesfrom.com or through Tastesfrom.com Services will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Conditions of Use as a court would.
We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuses of intellectual property rights.
For Quebec consumers:
These Conditions of Use and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and Tastesfrom.com shall be governed by the laws of the Province of Quebec, without reference to its conflict of laws provisions, and the laws of Canada applicable therein, and any disputes will be submitted to the courts of competent jurisdiction of the District of Montreal (Quebec).
You agree to indemnify and hold Tastes From, its officers, directors, shareholders, predecessors, successors in interest, employees, agents, subsidiaries and affiliates, harmless from any demands, loss, liability, claims or expenses (including attorneys’ fees), made against Tastes From by any third party due to or arising out of or in connection with your use of the Site.
Site Policies, Modification, and Severability
Please review our other policies, such as our pricing policy, posted on the Tastesfrom.com site. These policies also govern your use of Tastesfrom.com Services. We reserve the right to make changes to our site, policies, Service Terms, and these Conditions of Use at any time. If any of these conditions shall be deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that condition shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining condition.
