To contract with Kara Duffy Consulting & Coaching you must be at least 18 years of age and possess a valid credit or debit card issued by a bank acceptable to us. Kara Duffy Consulting & Coaching retains the right to refuse any request made by you. If your order is accepted, then we will inform you by email, and we will confirm the identity of the party with whom you have contracted. This will usually be Kara Duffy Consulting & Coaching or may in some cases be a third party. Where a contract is made with a third party, Kara Duffy Consulting & Coaching is not acting as either agent or principal and the contract is made between yourself and that third party and will be subject to the terms of sale that the third party supplies to you. When placing an order you undertake that all details you provide to us are true and accurate, that you are an authorized user of the credit or debit card used to place your order, and that there are sufficient funds to cover the cost of the goods. Kara Duffy Consulting & Coaching reserves the right to refuse service, terminate accounts, terminate your rights to use the Services, remove or edit content, or cancel orders in our sole discretion.

By placing an order you are offering to purchase a product or service on and subject to the following terms and conditions. All orders are subject to availability and confirmation of the order price. The cost of foreign products and services may fluctuate. All prices advertised are subject to changes.  Dispatch times may vary according to availability and subject to any delays resulting from postal delays or force majeure events for which we will not be responsible.

    1. Our Contract.  When you place an order, you will receive an acknowledgement email confirming receipt of your order; this email will only be an acknowledgement and will not constitute acceptance of your order. A contract between us will not be formed until we send you confirmation by email that the goods that you ordered have been dispatched to you. Only those goods listed in the confirmation email sent at the time of dispatch will be included in the contract formed.

    2. Pricing and Availability.  Although we try to ensure that all details, descriptions, and prices that appear on this Website are accurate, errors may occur. If a product offered by Kara Duffy Consulting & Coaching itself is not as described, then your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition.  If we discover an error in the price of any goods that you have ordered, then we will inform you of this as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you, then we will treat the order as cancelled; if you cancel and you have already paid for the goods, then you will receive a full refund.

    3. Shipping Fees; Custom and Duty Fees.  In addition to the price for the product, we charge a shipping fee; such additional charges are clearly displayed where applicable and included in the “Total Cost.”  Furthermore, all customs and duty fees, and any applicable sales taxes, are your responsibility to pay. Shipping costs are non-refundable, which includes returns, package rejection upon arrival, and/or failure to pay duty fees.

    4. Payment.  Upon receiving your order we carry out a standard authorization check on your payment card to ensure there are sufficient funds to fulfill the transaction; your card will be debited upon authorization being received. The monies received upon the debiting of your card will be treated as a deposit against the value of the goods you wish to purchase. Once the goods have been dispatched and you have been sent a confirmation email, the monies paid as a deposit will be used as consideration for the value of goods you have purchased as listed in the confirmation email.  The risk of loss and title for products pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier.

    5. Returns and Refunds.  Kara Duffy Consulting & Coaching does not take title to returned items until the item arrives at our fulfillment center. At our discretion, a refund may be issued without requiring a return. In this situation, Kara Duffy Consulting & Coaching does not take title to the refunded item.
