Pricing
While Preparion strives to provide accurate pricing information, pricing, typographical, or photographic errors may occur. Preparion cannot confirm the price of an item until after you order. In the event that an item is listed at an incorrect price due to an error in pricing, Preparion shall have the right, at Preparion’s sole discretion, to refuse or cancel any orders placed for that item. In the event that an item is mispriced, Preparion may, at Preparion’s discretion, either contact you for instructions or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.
 
With respect to items sold by Preparion, we cannot confirm the price of an item until you order. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items in our catalog may be mispriced. If the correct price of an item sold by Preparion is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.
Product Descriptions

Preparion attempts to be as accurate as possible. However, Preparion does not warrant that product descriptions or other content of any Preparion Service is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a product offered by Preparion itself is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition.

Returns, Refunds & Title

Preparion 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, Preparion does not take title to the refunded item. For more information about our returns and refunds, please see our Return Policy.

Risk of Loss

All items purchased from Preparion are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier.
