Order Acceptance
Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. The Empire Tape Co. reserves the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline your order for any reason. The Empire Tape Co. further reserves the right any time after receipt of your order, without prior notice to you, to supply less than the quantity you ordered of any item.

Ownership of goods passes to you upon delivery to the shipping carrier. We cannot be held accountable for the performance of a shipping carrier. If the items were shipped using your shipping account it is understood, and the customer agrees, that if the charges are later billed back to us by either the shipping carrier or a 3rd party we have used to ship the items the chargeback will be debited from the original credit card used to place the order. The customer will not dispute this credit card charge for shipping under any circumstances.

Typographical and Calculation Errors
To err is human. In the event a product is listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect information due to a typographical error, tax error, shipping calculation error or or incorrectly calculated orders or confirmations The Empire Tape Co. shall have the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed with incorrect information regardless of whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit card or account has been charged. If your credit card or account has already been charged for the purchase and your order is canceled, The Empire Tape Co. shall immediately issue a credit to your credit card or account in the amount of the invoice.
