Our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you.
Upon placing an order, you will receive an order number and an email confirmation. This does not constitute the acceptance of an order or the confirmation of an offer to sell. We reserve the right, with no prior notification, to limit the order quantity on any item and/or to refuse service to anyone. We may request further verification of information prior to the acceptance of an order. Prices and availability of products on the Properties are subject to change without notice. Errors will be corrected when discovered and we reserve the right to revoke any stated offer and to correct any error, inaccuracy, or omission (including after an order has been submitted).

ACCURACY AND MODIFICATION OF INFORMATION
We are not responsible if information made available on the Properties is not accurate, complete or current.

Each impact statement represents an approximation by the partner of their intended use of the proceeds from the products sold on the Properties. We do not verify the partner’s actual use of the proceeds and therefore do not promise or represent to you that the partner’s use is in compliance with the impact statement.
Occasionally there may be information on the Properties or in the Service that contain typographical errors, inaccuracies or omissions that may relate to product origins, materials, descriptions, impact statements, pricing, promotions, offers, product shipping charges, transit times and availability.

Certain products or services may be available exclusively online through the Properties. These products or services may have limited quantities and are subject to return or exchange only according to our Return Policy. We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colors and images of our products that appear at the store.

Accordingly, to the extent permitted by applicable law, WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, ACCURACY, MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND ANY WARRANTIES THAT MAY ARISE FROM COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE OR USAGE OF TRADE. Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of warranties so such disclaimers may not apply to you.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
IN NO EVENT WILL WE OR OUR OFFICERS, MANAGERS, MEMBERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SUCCESSORS, SUBSIDIARIES, DISTRIBUTORS, AFFILIATES OR THIRD PARTIES PROVIDING INFORMATION ON THE PROPERTIES OR VIA OTHER CHANNELS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO PHONE AND EMAIL, BE LIABLE TO ANY USER OF THE PROPERTIESS OR ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA OR LOSS OF USE) ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROPERTIESS OR ANY INFORMATION CONTAINED THEREIN, INCLUDING USER CONTENT, WHETHER BASED UPON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES OR LOSSES.
You hereby acknowledge that the preceding limitation on liability will apply to all content, merchandise and services available through the Properties or other channels. Because some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such jurisdictions liability is limited to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Regardless of the previous paragraphs, if we are found to be liable, our liability to you or to any third party is limited to the greater of (a) the amount in dispute not to exceed the total amount which you paid to us in the twelve (12) months prior to the action giving rise to the liability or (b) $100.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Local + Lejos and our parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, partners, officers, directors, agents, contractors, licensors, service providers, subcontractors, suppliers, interns and employees, harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by any third-party due to or arising out of your breach of these Terms or the documents they incorporate by reference, or your violation of any law or the rights of a third-party.
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 are effective unless and until terminated by either you or us. You may terminate these Terms at any time by notifying us at the following address that you no longer wish to use our Services, or when you cease using our Properties:

You consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of those courts. You must commence any legal action against us within one (1) year after the alleged harm initially occurs. Failure to commence the action within that period shall forever bar any claims or causes of action regarding the same facts or occurrence. WHERE PERMITTED BY LAW, YOU HEREBY WAIVE YOUR RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL.
If any provision of these Terms is deemed unlawful, invalid, or unenforceable by a judicial court for any reason, then that provision shall be deemed severed from these Terms, and the remainder of the Terms shall continue in full force and effect.

For these Third Party Service Providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which they will handle your Information.
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a Third Party Service Providers, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located. As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.
In order for us to better understand how our Properties are being used, we may allow analytics companies (such as Google Analytics) to use tracking technologies to collect information about our users’ computer or mobile devices and their online activities.

We may transfer your information to another company in the event of a corporate restructure, such as a sale or merger.
When applying for a job at our company, we may use the information to consider your application. The information may be retained for a period of time and shared with third party service providers retained by us to collect, maintain, and analyze candidate submissions for job postings.
Cookies and Pixel Tags
When you visit our Properties we may place “cookies” on your computer to recognize you. We do this to enhance your experience on the Properties (such as storing your preferences), collect statistical data, and track how you use our Properties.
Cookies are widely used, and most web browsers are configured to accept them automatically. If you prefer not to accept cookies, please configure your browser settings accordingly, but note that in doing so you may be unable to experience certain features of the Properties.
Additionally, we may embed pixel tags on web pages, ads and emails in order to access cookies and track user activities (such as how many times a page was viewed). We may use pixel tags to measure the popularity of our features and services.
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Shopify stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers. For more insight, you may also want to read Shopify’s Terms of Service here or Privacy Statement here.
