You may only use the site to view its content and place an order. All rights not expressly granted are hereby reserved by PPGB and its licensors.
Limitation of Liability
PPGB will not be liable for any indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages, whether based on contract, tort (including negligence), or any other legal theory, including without limitation loss of profits, loss of business, or other economic damages. PPGB is not responsible for delays in delivery that result from any circumstances beyond its control. PPGB’s aggregate liability shall not exceed the purchase price paid for any products purchased through this site, or, if no such products were purchased, ten dollars ($10.00).
Pricing and Specifications
All information regarding pricing, products and services is subject to change. PPGB reserves the right to make adjustments to pricing and products for reasons including, but not limited to, changing market conditions, discontinuation, unavailability, manufacturer price changes and errors in advertisements.
Prices listed are net and do not include shipping charges, handling fees, taxes and/or applicable duties, brokerage fees or special crating requirements for export shipment. Those customers who claim exemption from taxes or duties are responsible for providing PPGB with the necessary documentation at the time of purchase or taxes will be added to their order. PPGB always strives to maintain low prices. Occasionally, stated prices on the site are subject to change without prior notice.
All prices and dollar amounts on this Website are in Canadian dollars. PPGB presently accepts the following credit cards: VISA, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. We reserve the right to stop accepting credit cards from one or more issuers.
For you to register with and order products and services from PPGB you must provide and keep on file a valid, authentic and current credit card, which you are authorized to use. By submitting a credit card number to PPGB you are representing and warranting that the credit card information you provide is valid, authentic, current, and one that you are authorized to use it. You agree that in the event the credit card information you have provided becomes invalid, out of date or that you are no longer authorized to use the card, you will immediately provide another credit card number that is valid, authentic and current, and which you are authorized to use. Some electronic transactions may require extended processing in addition to credit card authorization. You will be notified by a PPGB customer service representative if extended processing is required to complete your transaction request through our Website. This may affect your estimated delivery date.Unless PPGB agrees otherwise, all product and service orders must be paid for at the time of the order and accompanied by an authorization to charge a credit card on file with PPGB or to charge a valid, authentic and current credit card, which you are authorized to use, that you provide at the time of the order. (If new credit card information is provided at the time of the order, it will be added to the credit card information kept on file; PPGB will not assume that previously provided credit card information is not valid). If a charge against a credit card you provide is not authorized or accepted, or is subsequently refused or rejected, we reserve the right to cancel your order without notice or liability.
In the event you make one or more changes to an existing order that incur additional charges, those charges will be applied to the credit card that was used for the original order, or to an alternative credit card that you provide to us.
In the event that PPGB and you have agreed upon an alternative method of payment, and the payment is not received within 5 business days of the date on which payment was due, you hereby irrevocably agree that PPGB may charge one or more of the credit card(s) you have on file for the full amount of your outstanding account balance.
Promotions, Special Offers and Discount Coupons
From time to time, PPGB may offer promotions and special offers identified by a Coupon Code. Each Coupon Code will have different requirements and rewards. Typically, you will receive a Coupon or an email that contains the Coupon Code. If you receive a Coupon or email that contains a Coupon Code, please read it carefully — all requirements stated in the Coupon or email must be met in order to receive or take advantage of the promotion or special offer. Unless otherwise stated, all Coupon Codes are limited to one-time use and are limited to current PPGB account holders in good standing.
Promotions and special offers may be limited to certain account holders (e.g., they may be limited to loyalty levels, or the terms may vary by loyalty level).
To take advantage of a promotion or special offer, enter the Coupon Code in the applicable field when placing an order. Not all products are eligible for promotions and special offers. If a Coupon Code does not function when entered, it means the product at issue does not qualify for the promotion or special offer; this determination is final.
A Coupon Code may not be combined with any other promotion, special offer, discount or reward offered by PPGB (including Rewards Points redemption). If you enter a Coupon Code or take advantage of a promotion, special offer, discount or reward (including Coupon Codes issued for Rewards Points redemption), you will not be able to enter another Coupon Code or take advantage of any other promotion, special offer, discount or reward.
Coupon Codes only apply to products ordered through PPGB’s website; they may not be used in conjunction with the purchase of products sold by or under the brands of third parties (including PPGB affiliates and/or websites linked to any existing PPGB website). Coupon codes can not be applied to custom orders.
Coupon Codes cannot be used to pay for taxes, shipping and handling or other charges. If the promotion or special offer has a minimum purchase requirement, taxes, shipping and handling, and other charges do not apply towards the minimum purchase amount.
If a promotion or special offer is for a defined amount (e.g. $10.00 off) and applies to a multiple- item order (e.g., multiple sets of printing supplies and consumables), it will be allocated to each eligible item based on the proportion of the item’s value to the total value of all eligible items, excluding shipping and handling, taxes and other charges. Certain items may not qualify for the promotion and will not be included in the calculation.
Promotions and special offers are only valid for a limited time. They will expire on the date or within the timeframe specified in the offer. If no date or timeframe is specified, a promotion or special offer is valid until the end of the month in which the Coupon Code is first eligible for use.
Coupon Codes (and the Coupons or emails that contain them) are not for resale, have no independent cash value, are not redeemable for cash, and will not be replaced if lost, stolen or deleted.
Coupon Codes will not be retroactively applied against orders already placed with PPGB.
If a Coupon Code is used and the entire order is cancelled or rejected, or if you return all items in the order, subject to the terms of our Returns/Refund/Reprint Policy, you will be refunded only the actual amount paid. The coupon code will no longer be valid.
If only part of your order is cancelled or rejected, or if you return only some of the items in your order, then subject to the terms of our Returns/Refund/Reprint Policy, the relevant discount or promotion will be applied to the item(s) that are kept. The foregoing notwithstanding, under no circumstances will a promotion or special offer of any kind be used to create a credit balance. If the balance of a partially cancelled, rejected or returned order is less than the value of the promotion or special offer, the promotion or special offer will be applied to the outstanding balance (not including shipping and handling, taxes and other charges). The balance of the promotion or special offer is void, and the Coupon Code will no longer be valid.
PPGB reserves the right to discontinue a promotion or special offer, or coupon at any time and with immediate effect.
