Loss or Damage in Transit
All items purchased from AAACN are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the ownership and risk of loss for such items pass to the buyer upon our delivery to the carrier (USPS, UPS, etc.). When shipped via UPS, your purchase is automatically insured up to $100 unless otherwise dictated by the laws in effect at the destination address. Insurance for alternative delivery methods or other values must be purchased by the buyer separately and requires special arrangements – please contact us by phone for more information. If an item has been damaged in transit, please notify AAACN immediately upon receipt.
Accuracy of Product Information
AAACN makes all efforts to ensure that product descriptions and pricing are as current and accurate as possible. In the event a purchase is not as described, it must be returned according to the Returns and Refunds section (below) for proper credit. If AAACN deems that inaccurate product information was provided, shipping costs will also be refunded.
Returns and Refunds
AAACN memberships are individual, non-refundable, and non-transferable.
For all returns, please contact us at 800-262-6877 prior to shipping the item, and be sure to include a photocopy of your original packing slip/receipt with the return. Shipping costs are not refundable unless the item is returned because it does not match the provided item description (see above). If a refund or overpayment is less than $15, AAACN may, at its discretion, provide a certificate of credit balance for future purchases in lieu of a refund. The following terms apply to returns of specific item or transaction types:
- Printed Materials
Unless otherwise specified in the item description, printed materials (books, pamphlets, posters, etc.) may be returned to AAACN within 30 days of the date of purchase for a full refund of the purchase price provided they are in original, saleable condition.
- Multimedia Materials
Unless otherwise specified in the item description, multimedia materials (CD-ROMs, audio tapes, video tapes, etc.) may only be returned within 15 days of the date of purchase for a full refund of the purchase price if unopened. Opened items that are defective may be exchanged for the same item within 90 days of the date of purchase.
Registrations and other special transactions have independent terms and conditions that supersede any and all of the above. These terms and conditions are provided during the transaction and should be referenced separately with respect to refunds.
These Terms and Conditions are subject to modification at any time, and may also be subject to revision based upon local and national laws in effect at the time of purchase.
