We may choose not to accept Purchase Orders at our sole discretion, even after we send you a confirmation email with your order number and details of the items you have ordered. ENSEMBL may decline or delay any Purchase Order to avoid oversubscription or as it deems appropriate. In such case, ENSEMBL will notify you as soon as reasonably practicable and refund to you the applicable payment in full. For clarity, nothing in these Terms requires ENSEMBL to complete a Purchase Order of Products.
In order for you offer to be eligible for ENSEMBL’s acceptance, you must pay the applicable Product price as listed in your Purchase Order statement. All prices and Product Purchase Orders are quoted and shall be processed in United States Dollars. For customer’s whose shipping address is Canada, taxes will be calculated at checkout and standard shipping is included. For customers whose shipping address is outside of Canada, your price includes duties and taxes. Customers whose shipping address is United States have standard shipping included. You are responsible for the timely payment of all fees and for providing a valid method of payment. All prices, discounts and promotions posted on this Website are subject to change without notice. The price charged for a Product or service will be the price advertised on this Website at the time the Purchase Order is placed, subject to the terms of any promotions or discounts that may be applicable. The price charged will be clearly stated in your order confirmation email. Price increases will only apply to Purchase Orders placed after the time of the increase. We reserve the right, but are not obligated, to limit the sales of our Products or services to any person, geographic region or jurisdiction. We may exercise this right on a case-by-case basis.
