Terms & Conditions Of Sale
Welcome to the online store (the "Store") provided by Sportmask. Your purchase of products ("Products") from the Store constitutes your agreement to be bound by these Terms & Conditions of Sale ("Terms & Conditions") and any additional terms we provide, including but not limited to our Guarantee and the terms of the Limited Warranty.
THIS IS A LEGAL AGREEMENT. BY PLACING AN ORDER FOR PRODUCTS YOU ARE ACCEPTING AND AGREEING TO THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS. YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU HAVE THE RIGHT, AUTHORITY, AND CAPACITY TO ACCEPT AND AGREE TO THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS. YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU ARE OF SUFFICIENT LEGAL AGE IN YOUR JURISDICTION OR RESIDENCE TO PURCHASE AND USE PRODUCTS AND TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY OF THE PROVISIONS OF THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS, YOU SHOULD NOT PURCHASE THE PRODUCTS.
We reserve the right to change these Terms & Conditions at any time, so please review the Terms & Conditions each time prior to making a purchase from the Store. Every time you order Products from Sportmask, the Terms & Conditions in force at that time will apply between you and Sportmask. If you have any questions regarding these Terms & Conditions, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Store is for retail sales to private consumers only. Please contact email@example.com if you wish to purchase wholesale supplies.
Please read these terms carefully. They require the use of binding arbitration to resolve disputes rather than jury trials or class actions. Please follow the instructions in the Dispute Resolution and Arbitration section below if you wish to opt out of this provision. As a consumer, you have certain legal rights. The disclaimers, exclusions, and limitations of liability under these Terms & Conditions will not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, including exclusions relating to products or services that are faulty or not as described, or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages or other rights. For a full description of your legal rights you should refer to the laws applicable in your country or jurisdiction. Nothing in these Terms & Conditions will affect those other legal rights.
Although the Store is accessible worldwide, the Products offered on the Store are not designed for use in all countries or with all hockey associations. If you choose to access the Store and/or use the Products you do so on your own initiative and you are solely responsible for complying with applicable local laws in your country and your governing hockey association. You understand and accept that the Store and the Products are not designed for use in all hockey associations and some or all of the features of the Store and Products may not be appropriate for use in such an association. To the extent permissible by law, Sportmask accepts no responsibility or liability for any damage or loss caused by your access or use of the Store or Products in any Country or hockey association that prohibits the use of such items.
You acknowledge that you have verified the compatibility of the Products you are purchasing with your other equipment You are solely responsible for determining the compatibility of the Products with other equipment. If you have any questions regarding the compatibility please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You accept that lack of compatibility is not a valid claim under the warranty provided with your Products and does not otherwise constitute a basis for receiving a refund after the 15-day refund policy described below.
2. Reservations and Pre-Orders.
Your placement of a reservation and pre-order does not create a contract for sale.
By placing a reservation and pre-order for a Product that is not yet available for sale, you make an offer to Sportmask to purchase the Product subject to these Terms & Conditions.
You may cancel your order to purchase Products at any time prior to shipment and you will be refunded in full.
Sportmask reserves the right to cancel or refuse any order for any reason at any time prior to shipment, including after an order has been submitted, whether or not the order has been confirmed. We may attempt to contact you if all or a portion of your order is cancelled, or if additional information is needed to complete and accept your order.
By providing a credit card or other payment method accepted by Sportmask you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the designated payment method and that you authorize us (or our third-party payment processor) to charge your payment method for the total amount of your order (including any applicable taxes and other charges). If the payment method you provide cannot be verified, is invalid or is otherwise not acceptable, your order may be suspended or cancelled. You must resolve any problem we encounter in order to proceed with your order. In the event you want to change or update payment information associated with your account, you can do so at any time by logging into your account and editing your payment information.
4. Availability and Pricing.
All Products offered on the Store are subject to availability, and we reserve the right to impose quantity limits on any order, to reject all or part of an order and to discontinue offering certain Products without prior notice. Prices for the Products and Subscription Services are subject to change at any time, but changes will not affect any order for Products you have already placed.
5. Sales Tax.
Depending on the order, Sportmask calculates and charges sales tax in accordance with applicable laws.
6. Resale and Transfer.
Purchases made on the Store are intended for end users only, and are not authorized for resale. Title for Products purchased from the Store passes to the purchaser at the time of delivery by Sportmask to the freight carrier, but Sportmask and/or the freight carrier will be responsible for any Product loss or damage that occurs when the Product is in transit to you.
7. Shipping and Delivery.
Prices for the Products do not include shipping costs. Our delivery charges and methods are as described on the Store website from time to time. In the United States, we offer three methods of shipment: USPS, Fed Ex, and UPS. In Canada and worldwide, we use the following methods of shipment: UPS, USPS/Canada Post, DHL, Fed Ex. The estimated arrival or delivery date is not a guaranteed delivery date for your order. Refused deliveries will be returned to our warehouse. It may take up to 45 days for the returned items to be identified as refused and processed for a refund.
AS APPLICABLE. You are responsible for complying with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Product is destined. We are not liable or responsible if you break any such law.
Sportmask is not responsible for any injury or damage caused by self-installation.
9. Returns for Refund.
If, for any reason, you want to return the Product you purchased from the Store for a refund, you must notify us no later than 15 days following the date of delivery of the product (the "Cancellation Period"). To initiate a return, you must inform us of your decision within the Cancellation Period by contacting customer support and clearly stating your desire to return the Product. Although it will not affect your right to a refund, please include details on where and when you purchased the Product and your reason for returning the Product. Sportmask customer service will provide you with a Return Materials Authorization ("RMA") that must be included with your return shipment to Sportmask so Sportmask can identify your shipment and with a return address. If you purchased the Product from somewhere other than the Store, please contact that reseller to obtain a refund.
To receive a refund, you must return your Product (and any promotional merchandise supplied with the Product) with an RMA within the 14 days following the day on which you notify Sportmask customer support that you desire to return your Product. Unless the Product is faulty or not as described, you will be responsible for all costs associated with returning the Product to us (including the cost of shipping the Product back to Sportmask). We will refund the price you paid for the Product minus original delivery cost, less the value of any promotional merchandise or discounts you received. We may reduce the amount of your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the Product, as determined in our sole discretion, caused by your handling them in a way which goes beyond what is necessary to establish their nature, characteristics and functioning (e.g., beyond what would normally be permitted in a shop).
We will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 10 days from the date of receipt by Sportmask of the returned Product. The Product is not eligible for a refund after the 15-day period.
10. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW IF YOU WISH TO OPT OUT OF THE REQUIREMENT OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS.
(a) Arbitration. Sportmask and you agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims that arise from or relating to these Terms & Conditions or your use of the Products in any way. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted, including, for example:
• claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us that is created by or involves these Terms & Conditions and/or your use of the Products and/or Subscription Services, regardless of the legal theory;
• claims for mental or emotional distress or other emotional/mental injury arising from the relationship between us;
• claims that arose before you accepted these Terms & Conditions (such as claims related to disclosures or the marketing of the Products and/or Subscription Services or the process for seeking approval to use the Products and/or Subscription Services);
• claims that may arise after the termination of your use of the Products and/or Subscription Services or any agreement between us; and
• claims brought by or against our respective subsidiaries, parent companies, members, affiliates, as well as the respective officers, directors, employees, agents, predecessors, successors, and assigns of these entities, you, and Sportmask.
This arbitration agreement does not preclude either of us from bringing an individualized action in small claims court. It also does not preclude either of us from seeking an individualized preliminary injunction or temporary restraining order, pending arbitration, in any court that has jurisdiction. Nor does this arbitration agreement bar you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. In addition, you or Sportmask may seek injunctive or other equitable relief to protect your or its trade secrets and intellectual property rights or to prevent loss or damage to its services in any court with competent jurisdiction.
You agree that, by entering into this agreement, we are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class or representative action. These Terms & Conditions evidence a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration provision.
(b) Notice of disputes. If either of us intends to seek arbitration of a dispute, that party must provide the other with notice in writing. The notice to Sportmask #5-2050 Speers Road Oakville, ON.
Sportmask will send notice to you at the e‑mail and/or mailing addresses associated with your account. Please ensure that your notice to Sportmask includes (a) your name, mailing address, and email address; (b) describes the dispute; and (c) states the relief you are requesting. If we are unable to reach an agreement to resolve the dispute within 60 days after the notice is received, you or we may commence arbitration.
(c) Arbitration procedures. The arbitration will be governed by the Consumer Arbitration Rules ("AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1‑800‑778‑7879. If the AAA is unavailable, the parties shall agree to another arbitration provider or the court shall appoint a substitute. Unless you and we agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the USA. If the value of your claim is $10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, by telephone, or by an in-person hearing. If the value of your claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.
All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this arbitration provision or the arbitrability of disputes are for the court to decide. The arbitrator may consider but is not bound by rulings in other arbitrations between Sportmask and Sportmask users. The arbitrator can award the same individualized damages and relief that a court can award. Judgment on the award may be entered by any court having jurisdiction.
(d) Costs of arbitration. The AAA’s fee schedule is subject to change and may be found in the AAA Rules (available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1‑800‑778‑7879). Sportmask will pay all AAA filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees for any arbitration that Sportmask commences. The allocation of AAA fees will be governed by the AAA Rules (unless the law of your state requires Sportmask to pay all such fees). If, however, the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all AAA fees shall be governed by the AAA Rules. In such cases, the arbitrator may direct you to reimburse Sportmask for amounts that Sportmask paid on your behalf.
(e) No class arbitration. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favour of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim. YOU AND SPORTMASK AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL PROCEEDING. Further, unless all affected parties agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this subsection’s limitations as to a particular claim for relief, then that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court.
(f) 30-Day Opt-Out Period. If you do not wish to be bound by the arbitration and class-action waiver provisions in this section 10, you must notify Sportmask in writing within 30 days of the date that you first accept these Terms & Conditions (unless a longer period is required by applicable law). Your written notification must be mailed to Sportmask at the following address: Sportmask #5-2050 Speers Road Oakville, ON. . Subject to section 10(g) below, if you do not notify Sportmask in accordance with this section 11(f), you agree to be bound by the arbitration and class-action waiver provisions of these Terms & Conditions, including such provisions in any Terms & Conditions revised after the date of your first acceptance.
Such notification must include: (a) your name, (b) the email address associated with your Sportmask account, (c) your mailing address, and (d) a statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with Sportmask through arbitration. This notification affects these Terms & Conditions only; if you previously entered into other arbitration agreements with Sportmask or enter into other such agreements in the future, your notification that you are opting out of the arbitration provision in these Terms & Conditions shall not affect the other arbitration agreements between you and Sportmask.
(g) Future changes to arbitration provision. If Sportmask makes any changes to the Dispute Resolutions and Arbitration section of these Terms & Conditions (other than a change to the address at which Sportmask will receive notices of dispute, opt-out notices, or rejections of future changes to the Dispute Resolution and Arbitration section), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to Sportmask #5-2050 Speers Road Oakville, ON. It is not necessary to send us a rejection of a future change to the Dispute Resolution and Arbitration section of these Terms & Conditions if you had properly opted out of the arbitration and class-action waiver provisions in this section 10 within the first 30 days after you first accepted these Terms & Conditions. If you have not properly opted out of the arbitration and class-action waiver provisions in this section 10, by rejecting a future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this arbitration provision, as modified by any changes you did not reject.

The obligations in Sections 10, 11, 12, 13, and 14 through 21 will survive any expiration or termination of these Terms.
