Terms of Sale When You Purchase Goods or Services from the DOW Site
All prices are shown in U.S. dollars; taxes, shipping and handling charges are additional. All items are subject to availability and we reserve the right to impose quantity limits on any order, to reject all or part of an order and to discontinue products or services without notice, even if you have already placed your order. All prices are subject to change without notice and you agree that taxes may be adjusted from the amount shown on the billing screens. Several factors may cause this, such as variances between processor programs and changes in tax rates.
We attempt to be as accurate as possible and eliminate errors on the DOW Site; however, there may be errors, and we do not warrant that all product, service, description, photograph, pricing or other information is accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free. In the event of an error, whether on the DOW Site, in an order confirmation, in processing an order, delivering a product or service or otherwise, we reserve the right to correct such error and revise your order accordingly if necessary (including charging the correct price) or to cancel the order and refund any amount charged. Your sole remedy in the event of such error is to cancel your order and obtain a refund.
Sometimes we will not know in advance that product is unavailable, and some items may be backordered or unavailable even if the DOW Site indicates that they are in-stock. Adding an item to your cart does not guarantee the availability of that item. We will not charge your payment card until the item ships to the designated delivery address. If the backordered itemis no longer available, we will cancel the item from your order and notify you, usually via e-mail or by telephone. If you have items on backorder that you would like to cancel, please contact us.
You agree that all of your transactions with or through the DOW Site may, at our option, be conducted electronically from start to finish, and that any oral conversations may be recorded. If we decide to proceed non-electronically, those transactions will still be governed by the remainder of these Terms unless you enter into different terms provided by us. You are responsible to print or make an electronic copy of these Terms and any other contract or disclosure that we are required to provide to you.
When we ship to you or per your directions, you agree to pay the shipping and any handling charges set forth in our Shipping Policy when your order is placed. We reserve the right to increase, decrease and add or eliminate charges from time to time and without prior notice, so you agree to check all charges before placing an order or signing up for a service. Generally, shipping is by standard ground delivery. Any shipping or handling charges may or may not reflect actual costs. All orders are shipment contracts, not destination contracts. Any shipping times shown on the DOW Site are estimates only – actual delivery dates may vary. You agree that you will not export purchased product outside of the approved territory.
Only valid credit cards or other payment method acceptable to us may be used and all refunds will be credited to the same card or, in our discretion, other credit method. By submitting your order, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the designated card and authorize us to charge your order (including taxes, shipping, handling and any other amounts described on the DOW Site) to that card. If the card cannot be verified, is invalid, or is not otherwise acceptable, your order may be suspended or cancelled. Regarding "Your Account," you agree to keep all payment cards or other payment method information current and that we may submit charges for processing even if the card has expired or changed by the time we submit it. You must resolve any problem we encounter in order to proceed with your order.
Manufacturers of products may provide other warranties, and you agree that your remedy for any defects in such products will be based solely on the warranty(s), if any, provided by those manufacturers. Products eligible for warranty return may be returned in accordance with DOW’s returns and exchanges policy. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may have other rights, which vary from State to State.
