You represent and warrant that all such information is accurate, and you shall ensure that such information is kept current. Ensembl shall have no responsibility or liability for inaccurate information or information that later becomes outdated and shall have no obligation to make efforts to determine the correct contact or shipping information. You can update your information at any time prior to your Product being shipped by sending an e-mail to support@getensembl.com and/or updating your account information through our Website, additional applicable charges may apply if you change your shipping address (see Shipping and International Orders section below for details).

You agree that your Pre-Order is an offer to buy, under these Terms, all Products and services listed in your Pre-Order. All Pre-Orders must be accepted by us or we will not be obligated to sell the Products or services to you. We may choose not to accept Pre-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 Pre-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 the purposes of clarity, nothing in these Terms shall require Ensembl to complete the Pre-Order of Products.

Prices

In order for you offer to be eligible for Ensembl’s acceptance, you must pay the applicable Pre-Ordered Product price as listed in your Pre-Order statement. All prices and Product Pre-Orders are quoted and shall be processed in US Dollars. For customer’s whose shipping address is Canada and the US, your final price is inclusive of taxes and standard shipping costs. For customers whose shipping address is outside of Canada and the US, your final price does not include taxes or import duties and may be subject to additional international shipping and handling fees.  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 Pre-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 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.

We strive to display accurate price information; however, we may, on occasion, make inadvertent typographical errors, inaccuracies or omissions related to pricing and availability. We reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions at any time, to modify the prices of Products at any time in light of such errors, inaccuracies or omissions, without prior notice, and to cancel any Pre-Orders arising from such occurrences. If there is such an error in pricing, Ensembl will cancel your order and reverse any charges that have been applied, then contact you to ask you to place a new order for the Product at the correct price.

Payment Terms

Terms of payment are within our sole discretion and, unless otherwise agreed by us in writing, payment must be received by us before our acceptance of a Pre-Order. We accept approved credit cards and other payment methods as set forth on our Website, as supported by Shopify through Stripe, for all Pre-Order purchases. When you make a Pre-Order purchase, you authorize us or our third-party payment processor to charge your payment method for any such purchases (plus any applicable taxes and other charges) that may be accrued by or in connection with your purchase.

The Products will be shipped in the order in which your Pre-Order was accepted by Ensembl.
