Xado Canada allows third party sellers to list and sell their products at XadoCanada,ca. In each such case this is indicated on the respective product detail page. While Xado Canada as a platform provider helps facilitate transactions that are carried out on the Xado Canada platform, Xado Canada is neither the buyer nor the seller of the seller's items. Xado Canada provides a venue for sellers and buyers to negotiate and complete transactions. Accordingly, the contract formed at the completion of a sale for these third party products is solely between buyer and seller. Xado Canada is not a party to this contract nor assumes any responsibility arising out of or in connection with it nor is it the seller's agent. The seller is responsible for the sale of the products and for dealing with any buyer claims or any other issue arising out of or in connection with the contract between the buyer and seller.
13. OUR LIABILITY
We will do our utmost to ensure that availability of the Xado Canada Services will be uninterrupted and that transmissions will be error-free.

We will attempt to limit the frequency and duration of any such suspension or restriction.
Xado Canada will not be responsible for (i) losses that were not caused by any breach on our part, or (ii) any business loss (including loss of profits, revenue, contracts, anticipated savings, data, goodwill or wasted expenditure), or (iii) any indirect or consequential losses that were not foreseeable to both you and us when you commenced using the Xado Canada Services.
We will not be held responsible for any delay or failure to comply with our obligations under these conditions if the delay or failure arises from any cause, which is beyond our reasonable control. This condition does not affect your legal right to have goods sent or services provided within a reasonable time or to receive a refund if goods or services ordered cannot be supplied within a reasonable time owing to a cause beyond our reasonable control.
The laws of some countries do not allow some or all of the limitations described above. If these laws apply to you, some or all of the above limitations may not apply to you and you might have additional rights.
Nothing in these conditions limits or excludes our responsibility for fraudulent representations made by us or for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or wilful misconduct.
14. APPLICABLE LAW
These conditions are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Canada, and the application of the United Nations Convention of Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded.

1. SCOPE OF APPLICATION
The following General Terms and Conditions apply to all orders placed via our online shop by consumers and authorised resellers.
A consumer is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for the purposes, which predominantly are neither commercial in nature, nor attributable to self-employed professional activity. An authorised reseller is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity, which is acting as a commercial or professional enterprise when concluding a legal transaction.
These Terms and Conditions shall also apply to future business relationships with authorised resellers, without the need to make repeated reference to them. Should an authorised reseller use contradictory or supplementary general terms and conditions, their validity and application shall hereby be excluded; these shall only become an integral part of a contractual agreement when we have expressly agreed to them.
2. CONTRACTUAL PARTNERS, CONTRACT CONCLUSIONS
The purchase contract shall be concluded with XADO Canada.
By placing products in the online shop, we are providing a binding offer regarding the conclusion of a contract for these articles. You may initially place our products in the checkout basket without any obligations, and you may correct any entries you have made at any time before submitting your binding order; this can be done by using the corrective assistance, which is provided and explained during the course of placing your order. The contract shall be deemed valid when you accept the merchandise placed in the checkout basket by clicking on the order button. Immediately after placing your order, you will once again receive a confirmation e-mail.
3. CONTRACTUAL LANGUAGE, CONTRACT TEXT RECORD
The language in which the contract may be concluded is English.
The contract text is not stored by us.
4. OUR CONTRACT
Your order is an offer to Xado Canada to buy the product(s) in your order. When you place an order to purchase a product from Xado Canada, we will send you an e-mail confirming receipt of your order and containing the details of your order (the "Order Confirmation E-mail"). The Order Confirmation E-mail is acknowledgement that we have received your order and does not confirm acceptance of your offer to buy the product(s) ordered. We only accept your offer and conclude the contract of sale for a product ordered by you, when we dispatch the product to you and send e-mail confirmation to you that we've dispatched the product to you (the "Dispatch Confirmation E-mail"). If your order is dispatched in more than one package, you may receive a separate Dispatch Confirmation E-mail for each package, and each Dispatch Confirmation E-mail and corresponding dispatch will conclude a separate contract of sale between us for the product(s) specified in that Dispatch Confirmation E-mail. Your contract is with Xado Canada. Without affecting your right of cancellation set out in section 2 below, you can cancel your order for a product at no cost any time before we send the Dispatch Confirmation E-mail relating to that product.
You consent to receive sales invoices electronically. Electronic invoices will be made available in pdf format in the Your Account area of the web site. For each delivery, we will inform you in our Dispatch Confirmation E-mail if an electronic invoice is available. For further information about electronic invoices and instructions on how to receive a paper copy please refer to our help pages.
Please note that we sell products only in quantities, which correspond to the typical needs of an average household. This applies both to the number of products ordered within a single order and the placing of several orders for the same product where the individual orders comprise a quantity typical for a normal household.
5. RIGHT OF CANCELLATION UP TO 14 DAYS, EXCEPTIONS TO CANCELLATION AND OUR VOLUNTARY RETURNS GUARANTEE
Unless one of the exceptions listed below applies, you can cancel your order without giving any reason within 14 days from the day on which you or a third party indicated by you (other than the carrier) receives the goods purchased.
You must inform us (Xado Canada) of your decision to cancel your order. You may submit your request according to the instructions and forms available on our web site. In case you use the return centre, we will communicate to you an acknowledgement of receipt by e-mail. To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication before the 14 days’ cancellation period has expired and return the item via our return centre.
For additional information on the scope, content and instructions for the exercise, please contact our Customer Service.
EFFECTS OF CANCELLATION
We will reimburse all payments received from you for the goods purchased and will also reimburse delivery charges for the least expensive type of delivery offered by us, no later than 14 days from the day on which we received the above communication. We will use the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise. In any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement. We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest. If reimbursement occurs after the maximum time period mentioned above, the amount due to you will as of right be increased.
Note that you must send back the goods by following the instructions available on our return centre no later than 14 days from the day on which us you communicate your cancellation. You will have to bear the direct cost of returning these goods. You may be liable if the value of the goods returned diminishes due to the handling of the goods (except when it was necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods).
EXCEPTIONS TO THE RIGHT OF CANCELLATION

Without prejudice to your statutory rights, Xado Canada provides you with the following voluntary returns guarantee:
All products from the Xado Canada sites can be returned within 30 days of receipt of the products to Xado Canada if the products are complete and are in an unused and undamaged condition.
If you return products according to this voluntary return guarantee, we will refund to you the purchase price already paid by you, but not the delivery costs of your initial purchase. Likewise, the transport risk and return costs are borne by you. The costs of delivery and return are only refunded for returns of clothing or shoes from our sites. This returns guarantee does not affect your statutory rights and therefore does not affect your right of cancellation as described above.

15. RETENTION OF TITLE
The goods shall remain our property until full payment is made. For authorised resellers, the following applies additionally: we reserve ownership of the goods until complete settlement of all claims arising from a current business relationship. You may resell reserved goods in ordinary business operations; you shall assign any claims arising from this resale — irrespective of connecting or mixing of the reserved goods with a new item — in the amount of the invoice amount to us in advance, and we accept this assignment. You remain authorized to collect the claims; however, we may also collect the claims ourselves, should you fail to fulfil your payment obligations.
16. DAMAGE DURING DELIVERY
For consumers, the following applies:
If the goods are delivered with obvious damage caused during delivery, please report the defect to the carrier and notify us without delay. Failure to make a complaint or to make contact in time does not in any way affect your legal rights or the enforcement of such rights, notably your warranty rights. However, in doing so, you help us to assert our own claims against the carrier or transport insurer.
For authorised resellers, the following applies:
The risk of accidental loss or deterioration of the goods will transfer to you once we have submitted the item to the hauler, carrier or other contractor for forwarding to the specified person or establishment. Merchants are subject to the inspection and notification requirements set out in the Canada Consumer Rights Act 2015. Should you fail to comply with the instructions set out therein, the goods will be deemed to have been approved unless the defect was not detectable on inspection. This shall not apply if a given defect has been concealed by us deceitfully.
17. WARRANTY AND GUARANTEES
Unless expressly agreed otherwise below, the law governing liability for defects shall apply. For consumers, the limitation period for defect claims regarding used goods is one year from delivery of the goods. For authorised resellers, the limitation period for defect claims is one year from transfer of risk; the statutory limitation periods for the recourse claim under Canada Consumer Rights Act 2015 remain unaffected. With respect to authorised resellers, only our own information and the manufacturer’s product descriptions, which have been included in the contract, are regarded as the agreement regarding the quality of the goods; we assume no liability for public statements of the manufacturer or other advertising statements. If the delivered item is defective, we may initially choose, with respect to authorised resellers, whether we will provide supplementary performance by rectifying the defect (repair) or by delivering a non-defective item (replacement delivery), at our discretion. The aforementioned restrictions and shortened time limits do not apply to claims for damages, which have been caused by us, our legal representatives or legal agents
- for injury to life, body or health
- for deliberate or grossly negligent breach of duty, as well as fraudulent intent
- for breach of material contractual obligations, the fulfilment of which is essential for proper execution of the contract and which the contracting parties may generally rely on and trust in being complied with (cardinal obligations)
- within the context of a guarantee commitment, where agreed
- as long as the scope of the Product Liability Law is in force.
Information on any additional guarantees and their precise conditions can be found next to the product and on specific information pages in the online shop, if applicable.

In order to settle disputes arising from a contractual relationship with a consumer or related to whether such contractual relationship exists at all, we are obliged to participate in dispute settlement proceedings before a consumer dispute resolution body. The competent body in this matter is:
ICC International Court of Arbitration https://iccwbo.org/dispute-resolution-services/icc-international-court-arbitration.
We will participate in a dispute settlement procedure before this authority.
