2. Order Acceptance and Cancellation
You agree that your order is an offer to buy, under these Terms, all products and services listed in your order. All orders must be accepted by us, or we will

4. Subscription Plans and Auto-Renewal
The services are offered by way of a subscription. DuraPaw subscribers may select from the following subscription term durations (the "Subscription Plan"):
i) Monthly Subscription Plan
ii) 3 Month Subscription Plan
iii) 6 Month Subscription Plan
iv) 12 Month Subscription Plan
All DuraPaw subscription plans will automatically renew on a month-to-month basis at the end of your subscription duration and will be subject to the same Terms of Service as before, unless otherwise provided at the time of renewal or updated on our Site under the Terms of Service page www.durapaw.ca/terms-of-service.
To cancel your subscription please email us at email@example.com and we can assist you. Cancellation will take effect after your current subscription plan duration. Please note that a cancellation fee of up to, but no more than $50 may be applicable for early cancellations due to any upfront discounts and loyalty pricing.

A 3-Month Subscription Plan is equal to three (3) separate orders, a 6-Month Subscription Plan is equal to six (6) separate orders, and a 12-Month Subscription Plan is equal to twelve (12) separate orders. When purchasing our Subscription Products, you are agreeing to commit to the number of separate orders corresponding to the Subscription Plan you chose.

These Terms of Service remain enforceable against you even after your right to use our Services has been terminated or suspended.
5. Prices and Payment Terms
All prices, discounts, and promotions posted on this Site are subject to change without notice. The price charged for a product or service will be the price in effect at the time the order is placed and will be set out in your order confirmation email. Price increases will only apply to orders placed after such changes. Posted prices do not include taxes or charges for shipping and handling in certain cases. All such taxes and charges will be added to your merchandise total and will be itemized in your shopping cart and in your order confirmation email. We strive to display accurate price information, however we may, on occasion, make inadvertent typographical
errors, inaccuracies or omissions related to pricing and availability. We reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies, or omissions at any time and to cancel any orders arising from such occurrences.
We may offer from time-to-time promotions on the Site that may affect pricing and that are governed by terms of service separate from these Terms. If there is a conflict between the terms for a promotion and these Terms, the promotion terms will govern.
From time to time, we may offer a free box code, that grants your first box for free on a 6- or 12-month plan. If this code is used, you are bound to the duration of the 6 months (6 boxes) or 12 months (12 boxes). Your first box will be of absolutely no cost to you ($0.00) and each remaining box will be the posted rate on our website. If you wish to cancel before the end of your selected term (example: after 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 month(s)) you will be charged a cancellation fee of $60.00. You authorize us to charge your payment instrument for this cancellation fee.
Terms of payment are within our sole discretion and, unless otherwise agreed by us in writing, payment must be received by us before our acceptance of an order. We accept major credit cards, cheques, or electronic transfer for all purchases. You represent and warrant that (i) the credit card information you supply to us is true, correct and complete, (ii) you are duly authorized to use such credit card for the purchase, (iii) charges incurred by you will be honored by your credit card company, and (iv) you will pay charges incurred by you at the
posted prices, including shipping and handling charges and all applicable taxes, if any, regardless of the amount quoted on the Site at the time of your order.
DuraPaw subscription plans are paid on a monthly basis. Providing us with your payment
information authorizes us to access and use the payment instrument you have chosen for regular monthly or bi-monthly payments of each DuraPaw order, plus applicable taxes and shipping. When you provide us with your payment information, you authorize us to charge your payment instrument for the amount owed.
Upon completing and submitting your payment information, your first payment will be processed. All other payments for DuraPaw shipments following the first payment will be processed every 30 days.
If we believe your payment has violated any law or these Terms, we reserve the right to cancel or reverse your transaction. The number of purchases per customer, household, or order may be limited or cancelled at any time at our discretion. Orders placed under the same
customer account, the same credit card, and/or the same billing and/or shipping address may be restricted. The email address and/or billing address you provided when you made the order may be used to contact you if we need to make changes or cancel an order. If in our sole judgment, we determine that an order appears to be placed by a reseller or distributor, we reserve the right to limit or prohibit the order.
6. Shipments, Delivery, Title and Risk of Loss
After you place your first order and begin your subscription plan, your order will take place as soon as reasonably possible, depending on the delivery method selected. All recurring orders will ship every 30 days following your order. Unless otherwise specified at the time of order, you will pay all applicable shipping and handling charges specified during the ordering process.
If you purchase goods from us for delivery to a destination outside Canada, your
purchase may be subject to import duties and taxes applied by the destination
country. You are responsible for paying any such duties or taxes. Please contact your local customs office for more information before making a purchase. We are not responsible for the payment of any such duties or taxes and are not liable for any failure by you to pay them. It is imperative that you provide us with the delivery address, as well as the name of the recipient, in a complete and accurate manner. We are not responsible or liable for the delivery of your goods to the wrong address or wrong person as a result of inaccurate or incomplete information provided by you.
Title and risk of loss pass to you upon our transfer of the products to the carrier. Shipping and delivery dates are estimates only and cannot be guaranteed. We are not liable for any delays in shipments. It is important to note that delivery times do not include weekends or statutory holidays, and you will be responsible for delivery fees unless otherwise noted on the Site.
7. Returns, Exchanges, and Replacements
Defective products may be returned for credit orreplacement products. To return a defective product, please email us at email@example.com to begin your claim. Any products found to be defective are subject to replacement upon our investigation. You must notify us, within fifteen (15) days from the date you received your subscription package, of the defective product. Postal service notifications may be required to verify the date of which our products were received by you.
We cannot guarantee that an identical Product will be available at any given time, and you may be sent a replacement Product of similar value and/or type. You may message us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to make any specific requests if your dog enjoys a certain toy more than another.
You are responsible for all shipping and handling charges on returned items unless otherwise specified. You bear the risk of loss during shipment. We therefore strongly recommend that you fully insure your return shipment against loss or damage and that you use a carrier that can provide you with proof of delivery for your protection. In the event of repeated claims of undelivered Product, or defective Product, your membership may be cancelled.

YOU AND DURAPAW ARE AGREEING TO GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY, OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT MAY ALSO BE UNAVAILABLE OR MAY BE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION.
ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE OR CONTROVERSY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, WHETHER PRE-EXISTING, PRESENT OR FUTURE, AND INCLUDING STATUTORY, CONSUMER PROTECTION, COMMON LAW, INTENTIONAL TORT, INJUNCTIVE AND EQUITABLE CLAIMS) BETWEEN YOU AND US ARISING FROM OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO YOUR PURCHASE OF PRODUCTS OR SERVICES THROUGH THE SITE, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION.
The arbitration will be administered by the ADR Institute of Canada ("ADRIC") under its ADRIC Arbitration Rules (2016) (the "AAA Rules") by way of a virtual hearing.
The arbitrator(s) will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to arbitrability and/or enforceability of this arbitration provision, including any unconscionability challenge or any other challenge that the arbitration provision or the agreement is void, voidable, or otherwise invalid. The arbitrator will be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity. Any award of the arbitrator(s) will be final and binding on each of the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced.
You will not assign any of your rights or delegate any of your obligations under these Terms without our prior written consent. Any purported assignment or delegation in violation of this section is null and void. No assignment or delegation relieves you of any of your obligations under these Terms.
19. No Waivers

If any provision of these Terms is invalid, illegal, void, or unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severed from these Terms and will not affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions of these Terms.
The obligations and liabilities of the parties incurred prior to the termination date shall survive the termination of this agreement for all purposes.
These Terms of Service are effective unless and until terminated by either you or us. You may terminate these Terms of Service at any time by notifying us that you no longer wish to use our Services.
