Risk of Loss
All items purchased from Toastmasters.org are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier.
For product descriptions, Toastmasters.org attempts to be as accurate as possible. However, Toastmasters International does not warrant that product descriptions or other content of this site is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. Furthermore, images of products may not reflect colors accurately as your monitor may be set to different levels of color intensity and/or brightness.
Toastmasters International makes every effort to ship products in a timely fashion. At times, it may be difficult to predict if the warehouse will run out of stock on a product. If you order a product and then it is determined that it is out of stock, you will be notified of the delay in processing your order. If there will be a significant delay in restocking the product, Toastmasters may ship other portions of your order as scheduled and then ship the late product when it becomes available. Prices, availability, appearance of all products and postage charges are subject to change without notice. Any duties and taxes incurred are the responsibility of the person placing the order.
All packages sent from Toastmasters International to countries outside the U.S. are required by the U.S. Postal Service to have an electronic customs declaration form (form CN-22). The information on the form will determine if duties are required for items included in the shipment. Because regulations, duties and taxes vary by country, members are advised to consult their local customs authority to determine if an item they plan to purchase from the Toastmasters Online Store is subject to duties and fees.
Products cannot be returned or exchanged except in the following circumstances: If a product offered by Toastmasters.org is not as anticipated, the wrong product is received, or a product is received damaged, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition within 30 days from date of delivery for an exchange or refund. The packing slip or a copy of the original invoice must accompany the returned material.
