Foodie Pages uses the shipping services of Canada Post and, from time to time, various courier and other delivery services. Shipment of the products you have ordered will be delivered to the delivery address you indicated in your order and according to the speed of delivery you selected when making the order. You are solely responsible for any error in the delivery address you provide (including the incorrect postal code for the street and city address provided) and the shipping costs resulting from such error. You may only enter one delivery address per order. Your credit card will be charged for the total value of the order including shipping, taxes and any special packaging costs. These costs will appear when you check-out.
It is your responsibility to be at the delivery address to receive the shipment. If there is no-one at the delivery address to receive the shipment, the shipper will leave a Delivery Notice Card. If the shipment is not picked up at the location holding the package for pick-up within the prescribed period of time, the shipper may return the package to Foodie Pages and User will be responsible for the return shipping cost. If the package is returned, depending on the perishability of the product, you may not be entitled to a refund.
All orders shipped to the User are made pursuant to a separate shipping contract between the shipper and Foodie Pages. Risk of loss and title to the products pass from Foodie Pages to the User when Foodie Pages releases the products to the shipper.
Should a User receive a shipment that appears damaged due to shipping, the User must notify Foodie Pages within a maximum of two days of receipt of the shipment, providing photographs, so we may submit a damage claim. We may require User to return the damaged product. Your compensation for damaged product is limited to the refund Foodie Pages receives from the damage claim submitted to the shipper. Please note that the maximum value of a refund is one hundred dollars ($100) and certain contents do not qualify due to their fragile or perishable nature. Only Foodie Pages is authorised by the shipper to initiate a damage claim. Users must retain the damaged product and packaging in case they are required for the damage claim assessment. If a refund is received, Foodie Pages will either replace the damaged product at no additional cost to you, or pass on to you the refund received from the shipper.
Order Cancellation and Alteration Policy
Once the order is placed by the User, the User cannot cancel or alter it.
Foodie Pages may cancel an order if it is unable to ship the entire order within the time frame specified in its Shipping Policy in the policy section of their storefront.
Refund and Return Policy
If there is any problem with your order, you must contact Foodie Pages within two (2) days of product receipt and tell us what the issue is; and (ii) Provide photographs of any damage or other issue(s). If the issue is in any reasonable way the result of actions taken by Foodie Pages, we will coordinate with the User to find an amicable solution, that may include replacement of the order or refund.
If you do not contact us within the above time period, you are deemed to have fully accepted the products, waived any return or refund right and credit card chargeback right, and released Foodie Pages responsibility.
To reach us, you can e-mail Foodie Pages at email@example.com quoting your order number and tell us what the problem is.
