Refund Policy

BOE/CLK does not give refunds or accept returns/cancellations on printed or electronic files(s) purchased from the Site if the correct order was shipped or otherwise delivered.  If we ship you the wrong product, we will ship you the correct product and will provide you with a return shipping label.  If we are out of stock on a product, we will do our best to replace it with a comparable product or issue a refund.  For our supplemented publications, we reserve the right to compile and ship earlier issues that are part of the subscription into one complete copy. Pre-ordered items, even when not shipped may not be eligible for a refund, in which case, the order will continue to process and be delivered.  Every attempt is made to be as accurate as possible with product descriptions and other content used on this Site to aid in your product selection. However, we do not warrant that product descriptions or other content of our Site is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a product ordered is not as described, your sole remedy is to contact us and return it in unused condition.  In order to receive a refund for the product, you must contact us within 30 days and receive instructions on how to process the return.  Orders returned without pre-authorization will not be eligible for a refund.

Order Cancellation by

We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to refuse or cancel any order for any reason. Your account may also be restricted or terminated for any reason, at our sole discretion.  If your order is cancelled by us prior to shipping or delivery, you will not be charged for the order or your order will be refunded.  Reasons for cancellation of an order can include, but are not limited to, out of stock inventory, problems with order processing, incomplete or insufficient order information, errors in pricing or shipping calculations, or if payment fraud has been detected.  Before an order is cancelled, we will make every effort to correct the problem before cancellation.  We will contact you using the information you have provided if any portion or all of your order is canceled or if additional information is required to accept your order. If your order is canceled after your credit card or other payment account has been charged, we will issue a credit to your credit card or other applicable payment account in the amount of the charge.

Change of Address for Shippable Items & Duty Fees

Because many of our products are shipped over the course of a year and due to the fact that part of your order cost includes calculation of shipping costs based on the shipping address, if you require a change of address either while the package is in route or to different address that would have required a higher shipping fee (Hawaii, Alaska or International), we reserve the right to assess additional fees to cover the increased cost of shipping.  These additional fees may be imposed at the time of the change of address or at a later date. Additionally, you are responsible for any Duties of other Fees imposed by the country as a result of its importation or duty laws.
