Please read these Terms carefully. By ordering products or services from us (whether through our website, by telephone, or otherwise), you confirm your acceptance of these Terms.
1.2 Incorporation and Conflict. These Terms are incorporated into all contracts for the supply of products and services by Progressive Automations.

1.3 Notice of Binding Arbitration; Waiver of Class Action. THESE TERMS CONTAIN A BINDING ARBITRATION PROVISION IN SECTION 14 WHICH PROVIDES THAT YOU WILL RESOLVE ALL DISPUTES THROUGH MANDATORY AND BINDING ARBITRATION, UNLESS YOU OPT OUT THROUGH THE MECHANISM PROVIDED IN THESE TERMS OR ARE IN A PROVINCE, STATE, OR COUNTRY IN WHICH THE COURTS WILL NOT PERMIT YOU TO CONSENT TO BINDING ARBITRATION. THIS MEANS THAT, IN THE EVENT OF A DISPUTE WITH PROGRESSIVE AUTOMATIONS, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO HAVE THAT DISPUTE RESOLVED BY A JUDGE OR A JURY. ADDITIONALLY, IN SECTION 14 OF THESE TERMS, YOU ALSO WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN CLASS ACTIONS AGAINST PROGRESSIVE AUTOMATIONS. PLEASE CAREFULLY READ SECTION 14.
1.4 Age of Majority; Entities. By placing an order for products or services, you affirm that you are of legal age to enter into these Terms, and you accept and are bound by these Terms. If you place an order on behalf of an organization or company, you affirm (a) that you are authorized to bind any such organization or company to these Terms; and (b) such organization or company accepts and is bound by these Terms. In such a circumstance, the words “you” and “your” as used in these Terms will refer to and apply to both that entity and you personally.

We may amend these Terms at any time in our sole discretion by posting the amended Terms on our website, which is currently located at www.progressiveautomations.com or www.progressiveautomations.ca, depending on your jurisdiction (either such website, the “Website”). Such amendment will become effective as of the “Last Updated” date posted on the Website. You are responsible for reviewing these Terms before purchasing any products or services from Progressive Automations. Your order of products or services on or after the “Last Updated” date or your continued use of the Website constitutes your acceptance of and agreement with such amendments.
2. ORDER, ACCEPTANCE, CANCELLATION, AND PRODUCT INFORMATION.
2.1 Advertisements and Acceptance. Advertisements respecting our products and services are invitations to you to make offers to purchase products and services and are not offers to sell. You agree that your order is an offer to buy, under these Terms, all products and services listed in your order. A properly-completed order on our Website or with one of our sales representatives by you constitutes only your offer to purchase the products or services in your order, even if we have processed payment for such offer. All orders must be accepted by us or we will not be obligated to sell the products or services to you. We will confirm acceptance by sending you an acceptance confirmation email or otherwise an express written confirmation of acceptance. We may choose not to accept orders at our sole discretion, even after we send you a confirmation email with your order number and details of the items you have ordered. You must immediately notify us of any discrepancy between the details in the order confirmation email you receive and your actual order. Failure to notify us of such discrepancy within 24 hours of your order will result in you becoming bound to purchase the items as described in the order confirmation email.
2.2 Depictions of Products. Products may differ slightly from how depicted in any illustrations, photography or descriptions on our Website. We have endeavoured to display as accurately as possible the colours of our products as they appear on our Website. However, as the actual colours you see will depend on photographic processes and your screen, we cannot guarantee that your screen’s display of any colour will be accurate.
2.3 Product Changes. Our products and services may change or be discontinued at any time. Products and services that are delivered will have similar characteristics of the products and services you ordered, but non-material changes between what is delivered and what is described online are possible. We may ship products with minor specifications changes, provided that the characteristics of such product are materially the same as the ordered products.
2.4 Cancellation or Modification. No cancellation or modification of an order is effective until such time as Progressive Automations confirms acceptance of the cancellation or modification. Progressive Automations reserve the right, in its sole and arbitrary discretion, to reject any request for cancellation or modification of an order. You shall reimburse Progressive Automations for all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by Progressive Automations in connection with the cancellation or alteration of an order.
2.5 Availability. Delivery of products is subject to availability. If you have paid for a product but it is unavailable, we will notify you of the unavailability and either refund you the purchase price for such product or provide you with a replacement product of equal or greater value. Alternatively, you may keep your order until such time as the product becomes available again, subject to our right to cancel the order in the event the price of the product has materially changed upon becoming available.
2.6 Limited Quantities. Despite anything to the contrary in these Terms, we may impose a limit on the purchasable quantity of a particular product or service.
2.7 Promotional Offers. At our discretion, we may make available certain products or services at a discount or for free for a trial period (“Promotions”). We reserve the right to modify or cancel these Promotions at any time. If we reasonably determine you have violated the terms applicable to the Promotion, we may charge you the full price for the product or service that was otherwise subject to the Promotion.
3. BLANKET ORDERS.
3.1 At our discretion, we may agree to divide your order into separate scheduled shipments on the following terms:
(a) Shipments may be scheduled no more than 12 months later than the date we receive your order;
(b) Shipment dates may be modified only in accordance with the following terms:
(i) A modified shipment must be within the same blanket order period (typically a 12 month period);
(ii) Shipment dates may not be delayed unless we have received at least 48 hours notice prior to the scheduled shipping release date; and
(iii) Shipment dates may not be accelerated without our prior written consent.
(c) Any changes to your order or shipment schedule may be subject to additional charges;
(d) Any cancellation of a scheduled shipment will be subject to a cancellation charge equal to an amount no less than 25%, and no greater than 100%, of the price of the products that were included in such shipment (as determined by Progressive Automations in its sole discretion);
(e) Such other terms as we may specify in writing.
4. PRICES AND PAYMENT TERMS.
4.1 Prices. All prices, discounts, and promotions posted on this Website or in any of our catalogues or promotional materials are subject to change without notice. The price charged for a product or service will be clearly stated in your order confirmation email. Price increases will only apply to orders placed after the time of the increase. Posted prices do not include taxes or charges for shipping and handling. All such taxes and charges will be added to your total price and will be itemized in your shopping cart (for web based orders) 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.
4.2 Terms of Payment. 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. If we have agreed to net terms (i.e. payment in arrears), we will invoice you for your order and invoices are due and payable within the time stated on your invoice. Partial shipments of an order may be invoiced separately from other parts of your order.
4.3 Late Payments. Excluding invoices you have successfully disputed, we may charge late payment interest of 26.8% per year calculated daily and compounded monthly or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is less, on all late payments. Without waiving any of our other rights or remedies, we may refuse additional orders and suspend any shipments or services until all overdue amounts are paid in full, and if any amounts remain outstanding for over a year we may cancel any outstanding orders and you shall pay a cancellation fee equal to an amount no less than 25%, and no greater than 100%, of the price of the products that were included in such cancelled order (as determined by Progressive Automations in its sole discretion). You shall also reimburse us for all costs and expenses incurred in collecting any late payments, including legal fees.
4.4 Invoice Disputes. This Section 4.4 applies if we have invoiced you for your order. You shall notify us in writing of any dispute with any invoice (along with substantiating documentation) within five business days from your receipt of the disputed invoice (“Invoice Dispute Period”). You will be deemed to have accepted all invoices unless we receive notice of your dispute within the Invoice Dispute Period, and you shall pay all undisputed amounts due under such invoices by the payment date specified in such invoices. The Parties shall seek to resolve all such disputes promptly and in good faith. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, you shall continue performing your obligations under these Terms during any such dispute, including, without limitation, your obligation to pay all due and undisputed invoice amounts.
4.5 Payment Method. We accept PayPal, American Express, Visa, Mastercard, JCB Card, Discover Card, Wire Transfer, and EFT/ACH for all purchases (unless we notify you otherwise). Subject to our written approval, we may also accept payment by cheque. You represent and warrant that if you pay by credit card: (a) the credit card information you supply to us is true, correct and complete; (b) you are duly authorized to use such credit card for the purchase; (c) charges incurred by you will be honoured by your credit card company; and (d) you will pay charges incurred by you, including shipping and handling charges and all applicable taxes.

Except with our express written consent, you shall not, and have no right to, withhold, offset, recoup, or debit any amounts owed (or to be owed) to Progressive Automations, whether under these Terms or otherwise, against any other amount owed (or to be owed) by us to you for any reason, including, without limitation, relating to our breach or non-performance of these Terms, any order you make, any alleged claim, claim, or judgment you have against us, or any other agreement between us and you.
4.7 Purchase Money Security Interest. If you have not paid in full for a product at the time of shipment, you hereby grant Progressive Automations a security interest in such product and the proceeds therefrom to secure your payment obligations under these Terms. You acknowledge that the security interest granted under this Section 4.7 is a purchase money security interest under British Columbia law. Progressive Automations may file a financing statement for such security interest, and you will execute any documentation necessary to perfect Progressive Automation’s security interest in such product.
5. SHIPMENTS; DELIVERY; TITLE AND RISK OF LOSS.
5.1 Shipment. We will arrange for shipment of the products to you. Please check the individual product page or speak with one of our customer service representatives for specific delivery options. You will pay all shipping and handling charges prior to shipment of your order unless otherwise specified in the order confirmation. For more information concerning our shipping policies and your shipping options, please see our Shipping Policy. Each shipment will constitute a separate sale, and you shall pay for the products shipped whether such shipment is in whole or partial fulfilment of your order, including, without limitation, shipments under Section 3.
5.2 Title and Risk of Loss. Title and risk of loss pass to you upon our transfer of the ordered products to the carrier or other provider of shipment services.
5.3 Delivery Dates. Shipping and delivery dates are estimates only and cannot be guaranteed. Shipping and delivery of products are subject to delay.

5.4 Rejection of Delivery. This section 5.4 applies to Custom Orders. Refusing delivery of a product does not release you of your payment obligations for such product (including, without limitation, shipping and handling fees).
6. RETURNS AND REFUNDS.
6.1 Procedure. Except for any products designated by us as non-returnable, we will accept a return of the products for a refund of your purchase price, less the original shipping and handling costs, or an exchange for a product of equal or lesser value, provided such return is made within 30 days of delivery with valid proof of purchase and provided such products are returned in their original condition. To return products, you must:
(a) call 1-800-676-6123 or email our Returns Department at email@example.com to indicate whether you will be seeking an exchange or a refund of the product and to obtain a Return Merchandise Authorization (”RMA”) number before shipping your product.

(b) Include the RMA number on the outside of the package or RMA invoice inside the package; and
(c) Ship the package back to us.

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. All returns are subject to a 5% restocking fee, except if the product is returned due to a material defect or error on our part.
6.3 Processing Time. Refunds and exchanges are processed within approximately seven business days of our receipt of the returned product. In the case of refunds for purchases by credit card, your refund will be credited back to the same payment method used to make the original purchase.
