4.2 If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will call or email you to advise of this and will not charge you for the product. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.

6. Providing the product
6.1 Delivery costs. We use a variety of delivery methods to ensure that the most efficient service is always used for your selection; including United States Postal Service or FedEx when orders are over $100. Our shipping and handling charges depend on a number of factors including the weight and size of the product. Orders to be shipped to the 48 contiguous states or the District of Columbia over $49 receive FREE delivery. Shipments to Alaska or Hawaii will incur an additional charge based on then-current shipping rates. Our shipping and handling charges are established at the time the order is placed. Please see appendix 1 for specific shipping and handling charges.
Please note that we are unable to refund any cost for postage that you may have paid unless we have sent you an item incorrectly, the item is deemed to be faulty or is subject to our ‘See the Difference Guarantee’.
6.2 When we will provide the products. We aim to ship all confirmed orders within 1 business day. However, there may be circumstances beyond our control which delay delivery. Providing an item is in stock, we endeavour to ship all orders received by 12:00 pm central time on the business day after the order is placed. We ship orders Monday to Friday and do not ship orders over the weekend.
6.3 We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control, then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimize the effect of the delay. Provided we do, this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.
6.4 Ensuring smooth delivery. We will deliver the products to the address you specify for delivery in your order. It is important that this address is accurate. Deliveries by United States Postal Service do not require a signature. Deliveries by other courier services may require a signature so please ensure someone is available to sign for the parcel on delivery. If there appears to be any sign of damage to the packaging, you must notify us immediately. You must be specific about damage, and you most provide a photograph of any damage.
6.5 When you become responsible for the products. Risk of damage to or loss of the products passes to you at the time of delivery to you.
6.6 When you own products. You will only own the products once they have been successfully delivered and when we have received cleared payment in full. Products supplied are not for resale.
7.Your rights to end the contract
7.1 You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing, when you decide to end the contract:
(a) If what you have bought is defective you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the product replaced or to get some or all of your money back). See clause 11;
(b) If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 7.2;
(c) If you are a consumer and have just changed your mind about the product, you may be able to get a refund, but your return will be subject to a restocking fee of 20% of the cost of your order and you will have to pay the costs of return of any products. All returns must be unopened and in saleable condition;
(d) In all other cases (if we are not at fault), see clause 7.4.
7.2 Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at (a) to (c) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided. The reasons are:
(a) we have told you about an error in the price or description of the product you have ordered, and you do not wish to proceed;
(b) there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control; or
(c) you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
7.3 Our ‘See The Difference Guarantee’ for consumers. Most of our products are backed by our See The Difference Guarantee. If you try a product for 60 days and don’t see the difference, we’ll give you your money back.
Why do we offer a money back guarantee? Lintbells began because we wanted to help your pets look and feel their best. We work really hard to find the best ingredients, then develop the most effective products. Our range is perfected through extensive trials and we’re always looking to improve. The positive feedback of thousands of pet owners shows we’re on the right track. In fact, we’re so confident that our products will work for your dog or cat that we offer a guarantee – see the difference within 60 days or your money back.
Here’s how it works.
- Give us a ring at 844-570-3222 to talk through what’s happening.
- We’ll make sure you’ve got the right product for your pet, and double check that you’re OK with the administration instructions on the product.
- Give it a fair try. Though most products show results in as little as 4 weeks, please allow 60 days.
- See results or get your money back in full.
Let’s talk it through
If you’re not 100% happy after talking it through and trying an alternative if we suggest it, we’ll issue a refund promptly.
How to get your money back
If you’ve tried a product for at least 60 days, talked it through with us, and still haven’t seen a difference, we’re really sorry.
You’ll need to return the product by mail – with your proof of purchase and any unused part of the product or the empty containers – and we’ll refund the purchase price, plus shipping and handling.
This goodwill guarantee does not affect your legal rights in relation to defective products (see clause 11):
7.4 Ending the contract where we are not at fault. Even if we are not at fault, you can still end the contract before it is completed, but any returns will be subject to a restocking fee of 20% of the cost of your order and you must compensate us for any costs we incur to complete your order. A contract for products is completed when the product is delivered and paid for. If you want to end a contract before it is completed where we are not at fault, just contact us to let us know. The contract will end immediately, and we will refund any sums paid by you for products not provided but we may deduct from that refund reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract.

11.9 What can you do in case of a dispute with us? The dispute resolution procedure detailed in clause 15 is available to you if you believe that we have not performed our obligations under this limited warranty or these terms and conditions.
12.Price and payment12.1 Where to find the price for the product. The price of the product will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. The posted prices do not include taxes or charges for shipping and handling. All such taxes and charges will be added to your merchandise total and will be itemized in your shopping cart and in your confirmation email. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 12.2 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
12.2 What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any products provided to you.
12.3 When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with the following credit and debit cards: Visa and MasterCard. You must pay for the products before we ship them but we will not charge your credit or debit card until we ship the products to you. You represent and warrant that (i) the credit card information you supply to us is true, correct, and complete, (ii) you are duly authorized to use such credit card for the purchase, (iii) charges incurred by you will be honored by your credit card company, and (iv) you will pay charges incurred by you at the posted prices, including all applicable taxes, if any.
13.How we may use your personal information13.1 How we will use your personal information. We will use the personal information you provide to us:
(a) to supply the products to you;
(b) to process your payment for the products; and
(c) if you agreed to this during the order process, to give you information about similar products that we provide, but you may stop receiving this at any time by contacting us.
13.2 We will only give your personal information to third parties where the law either requires or allows us to do so.
14. Other important terms14.1 We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organization.
14.2 You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else (except that you can always transfer our guarantee). You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing. However, if you are a consumer you may transfer our ‘See the Difference Guarantee’ to a person who has acquired the product. We may require the person to whom the guarantee is transferred to provide reasonable evidence that they are now the owner of the relevant product.
14.3 Nobody else has any rights under this contract (except someone you pass your guarantee on to). This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms, except as explained in clause 14.2 in respect of our guarantee. Neither of us will need to get the agreement of any other person in order to end the contract or make any changes to these terms.
14.4 If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
14.5 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
14.6 Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings if you are a consumer. All matters arising out of or relating to these terms and conditions of sale are governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Texas without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of Texas or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than those of the State of Texas.
15. Dispute resolution and binding arbitration.15.1 YOU AND LINTBELLS INC. ARE AGREEING TO GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY, OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM.

ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE OR CONTROVERSY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, WHETHER PRE-EXISTING, PRESENT OR FUTURE, AND INCLUDING STATUTORY, CONSUMER PROTECTION, COMMON LAW, INTENTIONAL TORT, INJUNCTIVE AND EQUITABLE CLAIMS) BETWEEN YOU AND US ARISING FROM OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO YOUR PURCHASE OF PRODUCTS FROM US, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION.
15.2 The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules (the "AAA Rules") then in effect, except as modified by this clause 15.

Any award of the arbitrator(s) will be final and binding on each of the parties and may be entered as a judgement in any court of competent jurisdiction.
15.4 We will be responsible for paying any individual consumer's arbitration/arbitrator fees.
15.5 You may elect to pursue your claim in small-claims court rather than arbitration if you provide us with written notice of your intention do so within 60 days of your purchase. The arbitration or small-claims court proceeding will be limited solely to your individual dispute or controversy.
15.6 You agree to an arbitration on an individual basis. In any dispute, NEITHER YOU NOR LINTBELLS INC. WILL BE ENTITLED TO JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS BY OR AGAINST OTHER CUSTOMERS IN COURT OR IN ARBITRATION OR OTHERWISE PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLAIM AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE, CLASS MEMBER OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. The arbitral tribunal may not consolidate more than one person's claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitral tribunal has no power to consider the enforceability of this class arbitration waiver and any challenge to the class arbitration waiver may only be raised in a court of competent jurisdiction.
15.7 If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced.
