Termination of Use
The pricing you see on each book page is for Non-Returnable books. Returnable books can be purchased at a lesser discount by calling and arranging with a PBC client services associate. The prices for items on this Website are subject to change. It is possible for the price of an item to change between the time you add it to your shopping cart and the time you check out. Occasionally, an item may be mispriced on the Website. In that case, the mispriced item would appear at the incorrect price even upon checkout. If the correct price of an item is higher than the price shown on the Website or at checkout, PBC may, in its sole discretion, do any one of the following: (1) contact you before shipping the item to notify you of the correct price and receive instructions from you as to whether you want to purchase the item at the correct price; (2) cancel the order and notify you of the cancellation; or (3) ship the item to you at the incorrect price. No contract will have been formed between you and PBC until PBC has charged your credit or debit card, or processed another method of payment.
PBC attempts to make the descriptions of its products as accurate as possible. However, PBC does not warrant that the descriptions or other content on this Website are accurate, reliable, complete, or current. If you receive an item from PBC that is not as it was described on the Website, your sole remedy (and PBC’s sole liability) is to return it in its unused and original form (i.e., without damage) for a refund.
Risk of Loss
The risk of loss and title for all items purchased from this Website passes to you upon delivery of the item to the carrier.
RETURNS AND REFUNDS
Returnable and Non-Returnable Books
Books ordered as Non-Returnable copies may not be returned, unless we made a mistake. See the subsection below entitled “Mistakes.”
If you order Returnable copies, our goal is to make returns as easy as possible for you. PBC will refund the full cost of your Returnable book purchase minus the shipping within 30 days after you return to us the Returnable book. Please note that Returnable books must be returned in their original condition, with no writing or other damage.
Be sure not to open any software included as part of a book until you are sure you will keep the book. We cannot take returns on books (even if we made a mistake) if the seal on any included software is broken.
You may return any type of book (Returnable or Non-Returnable) because of a mistake we made—for example, if we mailed you the wrong book or it is damaged when you receive it. If this occurs, please call 800-236-7323 and one of our client services associates will correct this immediately and provide you with a Return Number. When we receive your return at the “Address for Returns” noted below, we will promptly credit your account for the full cost of the book purchase and shipping.
