MAP Store Customer Agreement Statement
The online Museum of American Poetics (MAP) Store (http://poetspath.com/storefront/) welcomes visitors for the purpose of buying products for sale on its website. Any visitor to the MAP Store is defined as a “customer.” MAP Store customers agree to the following terms of understanding in order to purchase items at the MAP Store.
Hybrid eCommerce Store
The MAP Store is a hybrid ecommerce enterprise operating in part to sell Museum of American Poetics (http://www.poetspath.com) products from our office in Boulder, Colorado. The MAP Store also advertises off-site products via approved, online affiliate programs. Therefore, MAP Store listings of books, CDs, DVDs, etc., may involve purchases made via the MAP Store and/or links to off-site sellers.
MAP Products: Purchasing and Pricing
All MAP product purchasing is done via the MAP Store shopping cart/check-out webpages. Customer payments are made via the MAP online PayPal account. Payment through PayPal is the only accepted method of purchase at this time. We accept no checks or money orders for payment. We provide no walk-up service. MAP product pricing is subject to change without notice.
Affiliate Programs: Purchases and Pricing
Whenever MAP Store customers click off-site, it is for the purposes of purchasing a MAP Store-advertised title via one of our affiliate programs’ web pages. Some of our off-site links take customers to a specifically listed title corresponding to a specifically listed MAP Store advertisement. In such cases, pricing is identical to that of the corresponding affiliate program. Other MAP Store pages take customers to sites with multiple listings of a specific title. In such cases, the customer can choose between “new,” “used,” and/or “collectible” versions of a specific title. In the cases of titles with multiple listings, multiple pricing, and multiple sellers with a variance of ratings, it is the responsibility of the customer to make his or her determination as to the exact purchase desired. The MAP Store withholds pricing information on its web pages when titles with multiple listings, prices, sellers and ratings are involved. All affiliate program purchasing is done via the specific protocols and policies of each individual affiliate program over which the MAP Store has no control.
MAP Store customers are responsible for understanding product information directly and/or indirectly related to any purchase from the MAP Store, including items sold via our affiliate programs. The MAP Store sells items that are considered “new,” unless otherwise indicated. It is the responsibility of the customer to contact us if there are any questions regarding a MAP product before purchase. For products sold via our affiliate programs, whether these products are “new,” “used,” “collectible,” “signed,” and/or “first edition,” it is the responsibility of the customer to contact named sellers for product information before purchase should there be any questions.
Liability Regarding Customer Satisfaction
Although we desire our customers to be satisfied with any purchase they make through the MAP Store, we do not provide, refunds, returns and/or replacements for purchases made for any reason. All sales are final. In addition, the MAP Store is not liable for customer satisfaction or any aspect related to customer satisfaction when MAP product items are purchased without customers contacting us for product information before purchases. Additionally, the MAP Store is not liable for customer satisfaction in the event that any off-site seller does not provide the item bought by the consumer via the MAP Store in the manner advertised by the seller at the time of purchase.
