To the extent that there is any conflict between these Terms and the Calgary Co-op Membership Terms and Conditions, the Membership Terms and Conditions will govern.
- 1. Placing an Order
To place an order Online, you must have or create an Account. You may complete the Account registration process at the time you place your first order Online. You do not need a Calgary Co-op membership or Verified Account to place an order Online.
Calgary Co-op cannot guarantee that all products you order Online will be available at the time of fulfillment. You understand that the Online catalogue does not constitute an offer to sell, but rather an invitation to place an order. Similarly, an order confirmation does not constitute an acceptance of an offer. The sales contract is constituted when your order is Picked and payment has been completed.
A minimum order value requirement may apply to Online orders. Where there is a minimum order value requirement, it will be specified Online at the time you place your order.
- 2. Delivery
Calgary Co-op may charge a delivery fee for Online orders, which will be specified Online when you place your order. Order delivery is only available in limited areas, as indicated Online. Calgary Co-op reserves the right to change or modify the area(s) within which delivery is available without notice to you. Deliveries will only be made to a valid address, as determined by Calgary Co-op in its sole and absolute authority. When placing an order for delivery Online, you must specify a date and/or time for delivery, as applicable.
In order to receive your delivery, you must be present to accept delivery at the designated delivery address and must show government-issued photo identification to the driver. Your identification will be verified against the name on the order. If you are not present to receive your delivery, the driver will return the order to a Calgary Co-op retail location, and you will need to contact us to arrange for re-delivery. Additional fees may apply for re-delivery.
- 3. Pickup
Calgary Co-op may charge a convenience fee for pickup orders, which will be specified Online when you place your order. When placing an order for pickup Online, you must specify a Calgary Co-op retail location, date and/or time for pickup, as applicable. Pickup is only available at participating Calgary Co-op retail locations. Calgary Co-op reserves the right to change or modify the locations at which pickup is available without notice to you.
When your order is ready for pickup, you will be notified and provided instructions on where to pick up your order. Please adhere to your selected pickup time slot.
In order to pickup your order, you must bring government-issued photo identification. Your identification will be verified against the name on the order.
- 4. Changes and Substitutions
Calgary Co-op reserves the right to modify any order should products be unavailable. If a product you ordered is unavailable, Calgary Co-op will make an effort to contact you and obtain your approval for any substitutions. You have the right to reject any substitutions you do not accept. If Calgary Co-op is unable to contact you or does not contact you for any reason, we may cancel the unavailable products ordered in our sole discretion.
You may cancel or make changes to your order Online at any time before the order has been Picked. Once your order is Picked, the details of the order are final.
- 5. Returns
You may return products to any Calgary Co-op retail location along with your proof of purchase (i.e. your email receipt). Calgary Co-op reserves the right to reject any returns in its sole discretion. You will receive a credit in the amount you paid to the original form of payment for all accepted returns. However, if you paid for a returned product using CC Bonus Cash (as defined in the Calgary Co-op Rewards Program Participant Terms and Conditions), then you will receive a Calgary Co-op gift card or another form of tender for the value of the returned product, in Calgary Co-op’s sole discretion.
- 6. Payment Terms and Options
To submit an order Online, you must provide a valid payment card number, security code, expiry date, as well as the name and address associated with the payment card (“Payment Card Information”). Payments can be made for Online orders with CC Bonus Cash or the following types of payment cards: VISA, Visa Debit, MasterCard, MasterCard Debit, prepaid VISA or MasterCard, or American Express. You confirm that you are the authorized user of the payment method you choose to use.
You can choose to associate a payment card with your Account or Verified Account (a “Stored Payment Method”). If you choose to associate a Stored Payment Method with your Account or Verified Account, the Payment Card Information that you provide will be stored Online for future purchases. Any Stored Payment Method that you provide for Mobile Payment (as defined in the Calgary Co-op Mobile App Terms and Conditions) will not be used in connection with Online orders unless you authorize us to do so.
You have a legal obligation to pay for any order that you submit Online. When you place an order Online, you authorize us to, and we will, place an authorization hold on your payment card or Stored Payment Method for 10% over the value of the order. When your order is Picked, you authorize us to, and we will, charge the actual price of your order to your payment card or Stored Payment Method and the authorization hold will be released. If you choose to pay for your order with CC Bonus Cash, you authorize us to, and we will, deduct the actual price of your order from the CC Bonus Cash balance in your Verified Account and the authorization hold will be released. If the actual price of your order is greater than the CC Bonus Cash balance in your Verified Account, you authorize us to, and we will, deduct the total amount of the CC Bonus Cash balance in your Verified Account from the price and charge the remaining amount payable to your payment card and the authorization hold will be released. Your financial institution may charge you a service charge or other bank fees.
The actual price of your order may differ from the estimated price of your order when the order was placed due to, for example, product unavailability and/or substitutions, and promotional sale prices and coupons that may vary between the time you place your order and when you choose to receive it, and due to products that are sold by weight or cut.
All orders submitted Online are subject to verification at any time and for any reason. We reserve the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, to require proof of identity (in a form acceptable to us): (i) for the purposes of verifying the legitimacy of an Online order and/or (ii) for any other reason we deem necessary, in our sole and absolute discretion, for the purposes of fulfilling an Online order in accordance with our interpretation of these Terms, and any other terms incorporated by reference.
If your payment is refused by Calgary Co-op, the acquirer, issuer, or financial institution, Calgary Co-op reserves the right to cancel your order without notice and with no further liability or obligation in respect of the order. Calgary Co-op reserves the right to stop accepting payment cards from one or more issuers at any time.
- 7. Prices, Discounts, Promotions, Coupons and Taxes
All prices provided Online are in Canadian dollars, unless otherwise noted. Prices, discounts, promotions and coupons may vary between our retail stores and Online. When an order is placed Online, the prices for products and services on the date the order is placed will be applied. Any CC Bonus Cash offers, coupons, or other promotions will be assessed and applied on the date the order is Picked. We will calculate any CC Bonus Cash earned when the order is Picked.
Online prices for products sold by weight or cut are estimates only. While we make an effort to provide weighted items as close to the ordered amount as possible, the actual price may differ from the time you place your order. At the time your order is Picked, the actual price will be charged and will appear on your receipt.
Coupons and discounts may not exceed the total cost of your order. Coupons are subject to additional terms listed on the coupon including, without limitation, expiration dates. Certain goods may be excluded from coupons, in accordance with applicable law. Calgary Co-op reserves the right to refuse to honour coupons, promotions, or discounts if it believes, in its sole and reasonable discretion, that the person using them has abused or refused to comply with applicable terms and conditions, made a false statement or committed fraud. Calgary Co-op reserves the right to suspend, modify or terminate any coupons, promotions, or rewards programs without prior notice if, in its sole discretion, it determines that coupons, promotions, or rewards program documents are impaired or corrupted or if any program is deemed illegal. Any Prizes (as defined in the Calgary Co-op Contest Rules, available at: [insert URL]) won cannot be redeemed Online.
Applicable taxes and deposits will be estimated when you place your order and the actual figures will be calculated based on the price of your order at the time of final payment.
