(last updated July 2, 2019)
By accessing this website, you are agreeing to be bound by these website Terms and Conditions of Use, all applicable laws and regulations, and agree that you are responsible for compliance with any applicable local laws. If you do not agree with any of these terms, you are prohibited from using or accessing this site. The materials contained in this website are protected by applicable copyright and trademark law.
Permission is granted to temporarily download one copy of the materials on Discoveries Consignment & Resale, Inc.’s website for personal, non-commercial transitory viewing only. This is the grant of a licence, not a transfer of title, and under this licence, you may not:
- Modify or copy the materials;
- Use the materials for any commercial purpose, or for any public display (commercial or non-commercial);
- Attempt to decompile or reverse engineer any software contained on Discoveries Consignment & Resale, Inc.’s website;
- Remove any copyright or other proprietary notations from the materials;
- Transfer the materials to another person or website or ‘mirror’ the materials on any other server.
This licence shall automatically terminate if you violate any of these restrictions and may be terminated by Discoveries at any time. Upon terminating of your viewing of these materials, or upon the termination of this licence, you must destroy any downloaded materials in your possession, whether in electronic or printed format.
Tax charges are based on applicable federal, provincial and harmonized sales tax rates based on the delivery address associated with your order. Where required, sales tax will also be applied to the shipping and handling charges.
If you are making a purchase for a tax-exempt organization or are an individual who qualifies for a tax exemption, please contact our Customer Service team by email. To ensure compliance with federal and provincial tax laws, all requested forms and information must be received and verified by our Customer Service team before a tax refund can be processed.
Discoveries Consignment & Resale, Inc. reserves the right to refuse any order you place with us. We may, in our sole discretion, cancel your order. This restriction may include orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same credit card, and/or orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. In the event we cancel an order, we will attempt to notify you by contacting the e-mail address or billing/shipping address provided at the time the order was made. We reserve the right to cancel or prohibit orders that, in our sole judgment, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers or distributors.
Discoveries Consignment & Resale, Inc. strives to provide fair and accurate pricing information. The approximate original retail price is listed for each item and is based on online research of the original manufacturer/retailer, or in-person research of various Canadian or online retailers. If the original price is an important factor in your purchasing decision, we recommend that you do your own comparison shopping. When an original price is not available, Discoveries uses the price of a comparable garment from the same manufacturer. When in doubt, we usually slightly underestimate the original retail price.
Returns, Refunds, and Exchanges
Discoveries Consignment & Resale, Inc. does not accept returns and does not provide refunds or exchanges. We strive to present our products accurately and in detail, through photos, measurements, and descriptions. Please read the details carefully. You are responsible for checking the measurements and other information to ensure the garment or item fits your needs. A return/refund/exchange policy would, unfortunately, require a significant rise in prices. Please examine the photos and information carefully to be certain you will be pleased with your purchase.
