Green Book Subscription Agreement
Last Updated December 10, 2021
By purchasing a subscription for the Ontario Green Book (a "Subscription"), you agree to the terms of this subscription agreement as well as OSG’s Terms and Conditions (collectively, this "Agreement").
In this Agreement, “Green Book” means the Pocket Ontario Occupational Health & Safety Act and Regulations published by the government of the Province of Ontario from time to time.
THIS AGREEMENT FORMS A BINDING CONTRACT BETWEEN YOU, THE SUBSCRIBER ("you", "your") AND OSG INC. ("we", "us", "our", "OSG"). IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, YOUR CHOICE IS TO NOT PURCHASE A SUBSCRIPTION OR TO TERMINATE THE SUBSCRIPTION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CANCELLATION PROVISIONS SET OUT BELOW.
This Agreement will continue until you cancel your Subscription according to the Cancellation Terms outlined in this Agreement.
You hereby consent to our communicating with you at the email that you used when setting up your Subscription (your "Email Address"). You may change your Email Address associated with your Subscription by contacting us at email@example.com. We will use your Email Address for all notices to you with respect to the Subscription and it is your responsibility to ensure that your Email Address is current at all times.
Renewal and Payment
Your Subscription automatically renews each year, unless you cancel your Subscription according to the Cancellation Terms set out below, or until we notify you of cancellation or discontinuation of the Subscription product.
OSG will email you in November at your Email Address to confirm how many Green Books you need for the following year (the "Confirmation Email"). You will have until December 15 to let us know of any changes in quantity, otherwise you will be deemed to have ordered the same number of Green Books as the previous year. The time period between when we send out the order confirmation email to December 15 is the "renewal period". We will issue to you an invoice by email to your Email Address at the end of the renewal period when your order is processed.
If your order quantity changes, pricing discounts will reflect your new order quantity.
Payment for the Subscription and any services related to the Subscription must be made by credit card. Payment for the initial subscription purchase will be made at the time of sale, and subsequent charges will be processed the first week of January following the renewal period ending December 15 in accordance with your invoice.
You represent and warrant to us that (i) the payment information you supply to us is true, correct and complete, (ii) you are duly authorized to use such credit card for your 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.
The price of the products, and shipping fees will be quoted on our website and/or invoice. Product prices are in Canadian funds and exclude applicable taxes. Pricing on products is guaranteed for two calendar years and is based on the quantity agreed to during the renewal period. The two-year rate guarantee does not apply to shipping fees, which are subject to change.
If your order quantity changes, pricing discounts will reflect your new order quantity.
Product prices are subject to change after the two-year rate guarantee period is over. You will be able to view the pricing during the renewal period each year.
Availability and Delivery
Your order will be shipped within the shipping timeline set out in the Confirmation Email or your invoice, absent the occurrence of a Force Majeure Event. Typically, Green Books are delivered between mid-April to mid-May each year, subject to any timeline set out in the Confirmation Email or subsequent invoice.
In the event of a Force Majeure Event, we are not liable for the cost of any compromised or failed deliveries; however, we reserve the right to refund you for all or part of any such compromised or failed deliveries as we see fit.
You may cancel your Green Book Subscription at any time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. If we receive your cancellation request prior to shipping your Green Book, you will receive a refund for that year’s order. We may, at our sole option, require further confirmation to process a cancellation; however, we are not under any obligation to do so.
If your annual delivery has already been shipped and you would like a refund, your order will be subject to our Refund Terms, below.
In order to receive a refund on a payment for your Green Book subscription where the product has already been shipped, you must request a refund within 30 days of shipping. You will be required to return the books at your own expense. Products must be returned in new, unopened condition within 30 days of receipt to be eligible for a refund.
Once we have received your package, you can expect to see the refund show up on your credit card in 7-14 days after we have issued the refund.
Refunds from credit card transactions can be sent back only to the original payment method. It’s not possible to send a refund to a different destination (e.g., another card or bank account).
Refunds to expired or cancelled cards are handled by the customer’s card issuer and, in most cases, credited to the customer’s replacement card. If no replacement exists, the card issuer usually delivers a refund to the customer using an alternate method (e.g., check or bank account deposit). OSG's sole liability for refunds is to credit the same credit card used for the Subscription, and OSG expressly has no liability for refunds made to an expired or cancelled card.
Events Outside Our Control
We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under this Agreement that is due, directly or indirectly, to events outside our reasonable control (each, a "Force Majeure Event").
A Force Majeure Event includes any act, event, non-happening, omission or accident beyond our reasonable control and includes in particular (without limitation) the following:
Strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action;
Civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war;
Fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster;
Impossibility of the use of railways, shipping, aircraft, motor transport or other means of public or private transport;
Impossibility of the use of public or private telecommunications networks; and
The acts, decrees, legislation, regulations or restrictions of any government.
Our performance under this Agreement or any related agreement is deemed to be suspended for the period that the Force Majeure Event continues, and we will have an extension of time for performance for the duration of that period. We will use our reasonable endeavors to bring the Force Majeure Event to a close or to find a solution by which our obligations may be performed despite the Force Majeure Event.
