You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and restricting access to your password and account. Additionally, you agree to accept responsibility for all purchases and activities that occur under your account.


Acceptance of Order

Your placement of an order on the Site does not necessarily assure that we will accept your order. We reserve the right to refuse any order in our sole discretion. In addition, before accepting your order, we may require additional information if you have not provided all of the information required by us to process your order. Once a completed order is received, authorization of your form of payment is received and we have accepted your order, we will promptly place your order in line for shipment.


Pricing and Availability

All prices for products, including associated costs of shipping and tax, are shown in U.S. dollars. All prices are subject to change without notice, and you agree that taxes may be adjusted from the amount shown on the payment screens. Several factors may cause this, such as variances between processor programs and changes in tax rates. 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 without notice, even if you have already placed your order. If for some reason an item on your order is out of stock, we will issue a full refund for such item.


Forms of Payment

Early Riser Coffee Roasters currently accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express for all orders. By submitting your order, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the designated credit card and authorize us to charge your order (including taxes, shipping and handling) to that card. If the card cannot be verified, is invalid or is otherwise not acceptable, your order may be suspended or cancelled automatically.


Credit Card Security

The safety of your personal information is extremely important to Early Riser Coffee Roasters. Our card processor stores all credit card information. They conduct the entire credit card transaction using industry standard 128 bit SSL encryption. We only store a record that the transaction took place.


Sales Tax

We do not collect sales or use taxes in all states. For states imposing sales or use taxes, your purchase is subject to use tax unless it is specifically exempt from taxation. Your purchase is not exempt merely because it is made over the Internet or by other remote means. Many states require purchasers to file a sales/use tax return at the end of the year reporting all of the taxable purchases that were not taxed and to pay tax on those purchases. Details of how to file these returns may be found at the websites of your respective taxing authorities.

Early Riser Coffee Roasters is required by law to collect sales tax on orders shipped to Vermont. If you are shipping to any of these states, the appropriate charges will be added to your merchandise total and displayed on your final order confirmation.
