1. Your Account
When you make a purchase from the Site, you may create an account as part of the checkout process. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and restricting access to your password and account. You further agree to accept responsibility for all purchases and activities that occur under your account.
2. Acceptance of Order
Your placement of an order does not necessarily assure that we will accept your order. We reserve the right to refuse any order in our sole discretion. In addition, before accepting your order, we may require additional information if you have not provided all of the information required by us to complete your order. Once a properly completed order is received, authorization of your form of payment is received and we have accepted your order, we will promptly place your order in line for shipment.
3. Pricing and Availability
All prices for products (and the associated costs of shipping and tax) are shown in U.S. dollars. All items are subject to availability and we reserve the right to impose quantity limits on any order, to reject all or part of an order, and to discontinue products without notice, even if you have already placed your order. All prices are subject to change without notice, and you agree that taxes may be adjusted from the amount shown on the payment screens. Several factors may cause this, such as variances between processor programs and changes in tax rates.
4. Payment Terms
Samovar currently accepts Visa, MasterCard, and Discover credit cards. By submitting your order, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the designated credit card and authorize us to charge your order (including taxes, shipping and handling) to that card. If the card cannot be verified, is invalid or is otherwise not acceptable, your order may be suspended or cancelled automatically.
5. Shipping Terms and Policies
We endeavor to ship all orders for in-stock items within two (2) business days. If an item is not in stock at the time your order is placed, we will ship your order minus the out of stock item, and discount your invoice by the amount of the excluded item.
Our standard business hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific Time Standard shipping is typically via UPS or Federal Express and you should allow five (5) to ten (10) business days for standard delivery once an order has been shipped. If expedited shipping is required, please select that as your shipping choice (there are additional fees for express shipping).
For orders placed through our Online Store, you will free ground shipping within the continental U.S. For all other destinations shipping is calculated by the weight of the shipment, and added to your invoice at time of purchase. You are able to review shipping costs through the online checkout process before completing your purchase. Shipping charges are subject to change without notice.
Title to products passes from Samovar to you upon shipment and we are not responsible for any shipping delays or problems once the product has been shipped.
