Limited One Year Products Warranty
exaSound Devices are warranted against defective workmanship or materials for one (1) calendar year from the original date of purchase.

Warranty service can only be performed by exaSound. Devices which are defective must be shipped pre-paid and insured to exaSound for warranty service in accordance with our Return Policy. For products that we verify to be eligible for warranty service , we will pay the shipping cost to return the Device to you using shipping service of our choice.
If in our assessment the defect is covered by our Warranty, the defective item will, at our sole option, be repaired, replaced with the same item or its functional equivalent, or the purchase price will be refunded. ExaSound in its sole and absolute discretion shall be the sole determiner of whether a product is in fact defective.

Import Tax and Duties for International Orders
If you are importing goods from outside your own country, there may be customs brokerage and/or duty charges. You are responsible for all charges incurred upon importation of goods.
Every country has different import duty rates, charges and regulations. You are responsible for familiarizing yourself with those particulars before placing an order to determine how much you will be charged for the goods you wish to import. We do not have this information and cannot assist you with this issue.
We accept orders only if your shipping address is the same as the address displayed on your credit card statement or it is a PayPal Verified Address. We reserve the right to cancel any order if there is a discrepancy between the shipping address and the PayPal verified billing address or the address on your credit card statement.
We charge actual shipping costs plus a small handling charge per shipment. We ship via FedEx and Canada Post. We do not use any other service or carrier. We do not deliver to PO Boxes. When an order is placed, it will be shipping to an address designated by you as long as that shipping address is compliant with the shipping restrictions contained on this Website. All purchases from this Website are made pursuant to a shipment contract. As a result, risk of loss and title for items purchased from this Website pass to you upon our delivery of the items to FedEx or Canada Post. ExaSound is not responsible for damaged, lost or stolen packages and the liability for the same rests with the carrier. You are responsible for contacting ExaSound to initiate any insurance claim for damaged and/or lost shipments. ExaSound will file claims for those that are insured. Insurance must be purchased for all orders, domestic or international, totalling over $100 CAD.
We fill all in-stock orders as soon as possible, subject to shipping volume. We cannot guarantee a shipping date. Once your order has shipped, a shipping confirmation email with tracking information (if applicable) will be sent to the email address provided by you with the order.
We are not responsible for shipping delays or failures if you have provided an incorrect or incomplete shipping address such as an incorrect zip or postal code, unit number, suite number, building number, floor number or room number. Courier services may levy a fee for address corrections and you are responsible for these fees if levied.
Stock Shortages and Backorders
Sometimes our inventory system indicates that there is stock available for your order, but the item actually is sold out. We strive to keep our stock numbers accurate. Should a product be unavailable to fill your order, we will contact you directly and provide a revised delivery date. You will have the option to accept the revised delivery date or to cancel any unshipped orders and receive a full refund.
Order Cancellation Policy
If you need to cancel an order, please email ExaSound immediately. Please note, however, that we cannot guarantee that your order can be cancelled once it is placed as it may already have been processed for shipment. It is important to carefully review your order in the Shopping Cart before submitting it.
While it is our practice to confirm orders by e-mail, the receipt of an e-mail order confirmation does not constitute our acceptance of an order or our confirmation of an offer to sell a product or service. ExaSound reserves the right, without prior notice and at will, to limit the order quantity on any product or service and/or to refuse service to any customer. We also may require verification of billing and shipping information prior to the acceptance and/or shipment of any order.
