PRICE, PAYMENT AND SHIPPING
All prices quoted are payable in Canadian Dollars.

Bluenotes reserves the right to correct any errors in pricing or product information and to modify the prices of Products, at any time, without prior notice. Bluenotes cannot confirm the price of a Product until after you submit an order for the Product. Without limiting the generality of the provisions above, in the event that the price or related information for a Product (as described on the Site and/or the Order Confirmation) is incorrect due to an error in pricing or product information, Bluenotes may, at its sole discretion, refuse or cancel your order, whether before or after Bluenotes’s acceptance thereof.
