  1. ONLINE PURCHASES AND OTHER TERMS AND CONDITIONS
  2. A) This Section 6 applies to all purchases of Products on or through the Website. 
  3. B) Order Acceptance and Cancellation. You agree that your order is an offer to buy, under these Terms of Use, all Products listed in your order. All orders must be accepted by us or we will not be obligated to sell Products. We may choose not to accept any orders in our sole discretion. After having received your order, we will send you a confirmation email with your order number and details of the Products you have ordered. Acceptance of your order and the formation of the contract of sale between Whisps and you will not take place unless and until you have received your order confirmation email. You have the option to cancel your order at any time before we have sent your order confirmation email or before we ship your order.
  4. C) Prices and Payment Terms

1) Prices. The price for Products available for purchase through the Website will be displayed to you on the Website. The prices displayed do not include taxes or any other applicable fees, including, without limitation, any shipping, handling, insurance, or recycling fees. Any applicable taxes or fees will be communicated to you before you place an order. We are not responsible for pricing, typographical, or other errors in any offer by us and we reserve the right to cancel any orders arising from such errors.

2)  Payments. Whisps is not a bank, credit union, payment processor, or other financial institution. As such, the Website currently uses third-parties to process payments for transactions consummated through this Website (“Payment Processors”). By utilizing the Website to purchase Products you authorize a Payment Processor to charge your credit card or other payment method. Our third-party Payment Processors accept payments through various credit cards, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover, as detailed on the applicable payment screen. Transactions processed via the Website may also be subject to the terms and conditions of the applicable Payment Processor. You represent and warrant that (i) the credit card information you supply to such third party payment processors is true, correct, and complete, (ii) you are duly authorized to use such credit card for the purchase, (iii) charges incurred by you will be honored by your credit card company, and (iv) you will pay charges incurred by you at the posted prices, including all applicable taxes, if any. Whisps is not responsible for any errors by the Payment Processor.

  1. D) Shipments; Title and Risk of Loss.

1) We will arrange for shipment of the Products to you. You will pay all shipping and handling charges specified during the ordering process.

2)  Products may only be shipped to the contiguous United States (not including Alaska, Hawaii, US territories, or Canada).

3) Title and risk of loss pass to you upon delivery of the Products (by us or our manufacturer) to the carrier. Shipping and delivery dates are estimates only and cannot be guaranteed. We are not liable for any delays in shipments. You are responsible for filing any claims with carriers for damaged or lost Products.

  1. E) Returns and Refunds. All sales of Products on or through the Website are final and non-refundable. Any return or refund of Products purchased on or through this Website accepted or agreed to by Whisps shall not be deemed to be a waiver of this Section 6.E. 
  2. F) Discount and Offer Codes. Occasionally and from time to time, Whisps may offer qualified consumers “discount codes,” “promo codes,” “coupon codes,” “gift codes” or “offer codes” through a range of advertisements, promotional programs and other communications efforts (collectively referred to herein as “offer codes”) that are redeemable towards purchase(s) our or through the Website,  or in through retail stores. These offer codes are available only while supplies last and are subject to certain Product, minimum price exclusions or any other restrictions as may be determined and communicated by Whisps in its sole discretion. Only valid offer codes provided or promoted by Whisps will be considered valid and honored at checkout. Codes supplied or promoted by third parties unauthorized by Whisps (including any unauthorized third-party websites) will not be honored and are not considered valid. Each offer code promoted by Whisps is non-transferable and valid for single use on an item (or items) as determined by Whisps. Offer codes may not be combined with any other offer codes or promotional activities, are valid only on full-priced products unless stated otherwise. They will not be honored on any items that are marked as “Closeout” or “Final Sale” unless stated otherwise, and may not be used in conjunction with any other promotional programs that may be issued through our retail partners. Customers are limited to the use of a single offer code per order. For online purchases, the code must be entered in the ‘discount code’ field at checkout. Whisps does not accept responsibility for lost, stolen or corrupted codes or any unauthorized use of codes. Offer codes cannot be redeemed for cash or any cash equivalent; no substitutions, “rain checks,” or credits allowed. The dollar value of any offer code will not be refunded or credited back if any or all of the merchandise is returned which causes the order to no longer meet any restrictions of an offer code used in the transaction. If an offer code provides for free or discounted item(s) with a qualifying purchase, the full retail value of the free or discounted item(s) will be deducted from any refunded amounts if the free or discounted item(s) are not returned with the qualifying product. Expiration dates may apply to each offer code. Offer codes are void if copied, transferred, sold, exchanged or expired, and where prohibited.
  3. USE OF ANY HYPERLINK

From time to time, you may be able to receive, at no charge, promotional samples of certain Products from Whisps solely for personal, non-commercial sampling and evaluation purposes (“Samples”). With respect to these Samples, you agree you will use Samples solely for your personal, non-commercial sampling and evaluation purposes and will not re-sell such Samples. Whisps does not and cannot guarantee the availability of any Samples. Availability of Samples at all times remains subject to (i) the requirements of individual promotional campaigns associated with such Samples, (ii) the availability of Samples as determined by Whisps, and (iii) Whisps’ discretion. Nothing on the Website constitutes a binding offer to sell, distribute or give away Samples. We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order for Samples to accept or decline such order, or any portion thereof, or to not ship to particular addresses. We reserve the right at any time to limit the quantities of Samples offered or shipped by us to any person, family, or sample test group.
