Our Sites allow you to place orders quickly and easily as an unregistered guest or by registering a password protected account. However, some services on our Sites may not be available to you if you do not create an account. If you create an account, you are responsible for: (a) maintaining the confidentiality of your account, account information, username, and password and for restricting access to your account and account information, (b) accepting responsibility for all activities that occur under your account, username, or password, (c) providing true, accurate, current, and complete registration information for all required fields about yourself on all forms you complete; (d) maintaining and updating this information to keep it true, accurate, current; and (e) immediately notifying Pugez of any suspected unauthorized use of your account, account information, username, or password. Your registration on our Sites is personal to you and is not transferable. We are not responsible for any loss that results from unauthorized use of your account or account information. In case of any actual or suspected loss, theft, or unauthorized use of your account or account information, you must immediately notify Customer Care.
Until the time Pugez ships your order or you pick up your order at one of our stores, Pugez may modify, decline, or cancel your order placed on our Sites, or any portion thereof, even after you receive an order confirmation. We also reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to limit the quantity of items ordered, refuse service to any customer, terminate accounts, remove or edit content, prohibit sales to resellers, dealers, and similar, and/or to limit or impose conditions on the honoring of any coupon, coupon code, promotional code, or other similar promotion. Some situations where we may cancel your order include inaccuracies or errors in product or pricing information, limited quantities, or problems with the chosen payment mechanism. We may require additional information or need to verify information before accepting your order. The receipt of an e-mail order confirmation does not constitute the acceptance of an order or a confirmation of an offer to sell. By placing an order on our Sites, you represent that the items ordered will be used, possessed and transferred only in a lawful manner.
In compliance with applicable laws, some of our merchandise offerings are only available for purchase by individuals meeting certain criteria, including but not limited to age and residency. In addition, some of our merchandise offerings may require that you complete certain relevant paperwork prior to purchase.
Please note that Pugez does not accept orders submitted from California or international locations (other than military APO/FPO/DPO addresses via US Postal Service). We reserve the right to cancel any orders in violation of these limitations.
All prices, features, content, and specifications listed on our Sites are subject to change at any time without notice. Although Pugez strives to provide the most accurate pricing and product information possible, pricing and product information errors may occur on our Sites from time to time. You agree that Pugez is not responsible for any pricing or product information errors. If an item is listed at an incorrect price, Pugez may refuse or cancel any orders placed for that item. Pugez will not charge you more than the listed price for an item without your consent. Sometimes an online price will not match the price in our retail stores, and Pugez may maintain different prices for items offered for sale through different sales channels. Taxes, shipping and handling fees (which may exceed actual shipping costs), and other fees are separate from the price and may vary by jurisdiction, store location, or delivery address or method.
Pugez does price match. For Pugez’s Price Match Policy please see pugez.com/pricematch.
Pugez may change accepted payment methods at any time without notice. When you present your payment online, you guarantee that you have the right to use that form of payment. We do not accept personal checks, money orders, or cash payments for online transactions. We may require credit cards and debit cards to be issued by an institution in the United States and/or in the jurisdiction where you are located and to be linked to a billing address in the same jurisdiction. For products purchased from our Sites using a credit card, an authorization hold may be placed on your credit card when you place an order. We do not charge you for an item until a shipping label has been generated for your item, the item in your order is delivered to the carrier or picked up in the store, as applicable. For products purchased from our Sites using a gift card, a card authorization hold in the amount of the full purchase price will be applied to your gift card when you place the order and the value will be deducted from your gift card once a shipping label has been generated for your item, the item is delivered to the carrier or when you pick up your item(s) in the store, as applicable. If your gift card value is less than the value of your purchase, an additional form of payment will be required. If an order for an item purchased with a gift card is cancelled, the card authorization hold in the amount applicable to the cancelled item will be released and the applicable funds will remain on your gift card.
Shipping and handling fees (which may exceed actual shipping costs) are separate from the product price and may vary by jurisdiction or delivery address or method. When an order is placed for delivery, it will be shipped to the address you designate during the order process, as long as such shipping address is compliant with the shipping restrictions contained on our Sites.
If your order includes multiple items, certain items may ship separately resulting in partial shipments.
Please note that Pugez does not currently ship items to Alaska, California, or Hawaii, U.S. territories, such as Puerto Rico, or international destinations (other than military APO/FPO addresses via US Postal Service).
The risk of loss and title for your purchase(s) pass to you once we deliver your item(s) to the carrier.
Some items ordered from our Sites may be available for pick up in a store of your choice. If an item is available for pick up, you will be presented with the option to pick up your item in store when selecting it for purchase.
