If an item is damaged in transport or is found to be defective, we will replace the item as quickly as possible or refund you if the item is no longer available. We may request photos of the visible damage.

If an item appears to have a manufacturer’s defect, we will do our best to resolve it as quickly as possible. However, each situation is unique. Depending on the product and manufacturer, we may:

contact you for further details

request the manufacturer to replace the defective parts or the entire product

request the item to be returned to verify the defect

Please note: Unless an item is found to be defective, return shipping is your responsibility. All items must be returned in completely resalable condition. We will refund your account, using the same method of payment as the original order, once we have received the item and verified the condition.

Resalable condition: What does it mean?

To us, this means unused, in original packaging, as if unopened.

To you, this means that it is best not to open it until you are sure that you want to keep it. Should you need to open the box in order to determine that, make sure that you do not damage, or lose any part of the original packaging. You will need to put it back in the box exactly as you received it, including twist ties, screws and other things used to ensure that it can be shipped safely. And be sure to save all original shipping materials for repacking. You will be responsible for repacking the item so that it will not be damaged during return shipping.

If we can’t, you and we agree to binding individual arbitration before the Institute of Canada (ADRIC) under the Commercial Arbitral Act “CAC” and using UNCITRAL Model Law, and not to sue in court in front of a judge or jury. Instead, a neutral arbitrator will decide and the arbitrator’s decision will be final except for a limited right of review under the CAC. Class action lawsuits, class-wide arbitrations, private attorney-general actions, and any other proceeding where someone acts in a representative capacity aren’t allowed. Nor is combining individual proceedings without the consent of all parties. “we,” “our,” and “us” includes Sprig Learning.
