Customs and Import Duties
You understand and agree that non-US orders for physical products may be subject to import duties and taxes for any orders placed through PimsleurApproach.com. You are responsible for any additional customs clearance fees and taxes. Refusal to pay these fees will result in the carrier abandoning the package and you will be responsible for the cost of the merchandise. We will indicate the contents of the package as Educational Material and will state the full cost of the invoice on the shipping documents. PimsleurApproach.com has no control over these additional charges and cannot predict what they may be. You should contact your local customs office for additional information. The recipient's name is indicated as the importer of record for any pertinent shipping documents. The importer of record is responsible for the shipment and must comply with all regulations and laws for the country in which you are receiving the goods. If your order is seized in customs due to violation of any laws we will not refund the cost of your order or shipping charges.
There is a limit of one coupon per order per household. Unless otherwise stated, all outstanding coupons, promotions, sales discounts and special offers cannot be combined and must be redeemed by the expiration date assigned to the code.
Please note that we do not ship on weekends or holidays and only offer weekday delivery.
Our preferred carrier for all shipments is the U.S. Postal Service. For expedited service, such as Next Day or Second Day service, we use FedEx. Unless indicated otherwise, a shipping and handling fee is applied to all orders. The shipping and handling cost is a non-negotiable flat rate fee that covers the cost of postage as well as handling and packaging costs. If a delivery is refused by the customer without authorization from Internet Order LLC, a fee for return shipment and/or a restocking fee may be applied to any subsequent request for a refund. Whenever possible, if you have opted to provide us with your e-mail address, we will send you a confirmation e-mail with a tracking number, if available, once your order is mailed from our warehouse.
Usually ships next business day
Your order will usually ship the next business day if it is placed by midnight Eastern Time.
Item is on order
This product is not currently in stock at any of our warehouse locations. We have ordered the product from our supplier and expect to be able to ship your product soon. We will ship your item as soon as possible, and update you on the status of your order via e-mail.

When will your order arrive?
To calculate when you will receive an item, you need to consider the availability of the items you are ordering as well as the shipping option you select. Here's the equation we use:
Item Availability + Shipping Time = Total Delivery Time
For example, if an item is available to ship on the next business day and the shipping time will be 5-7 business days, your total delivery time will be 1 day (availability) + 5 to 7 days (shipping time). So you can expect to receive this item at your front door in about 6 to 8 days after you have placed your order.
Products With Different Availability In The Same Order
Orders are shipped together. You should use the longest availability time in calculating the arrival time of your order.
If, after using the product pursuant to the instructions set forth audibly within the product as well as set forth in the written materials accompanying the product, you are not satisfied, you may return the product within thirty (30) days of receipt of the product as described and detailed in the Cancellation Policy.

Choice of Law
If any disputes arise between us regarding your use of this Internet Order, LLC website (the "Website"), such disputes shall be resolved according to the laws of the State of Pennsylvania, without regard to the principles thereof regarding conflicts of law.
If you have a dispute concerning any aspect of the General Terms and Conditions, the Website or your purchase, use or return of merchandise, you should first contact customer support on our Website at http://www.pimsleurapproach.com/help or by calling toll free, 888-460-6933 or by completing the customer support form. If Customer Support doesn't resolve your dispute to your satisfaction, you can start a formal dispute proceeding by completing a Dispute Notice. Completing a Dispute Notice will elevate your dispute and we will attempt to resolve the matter to your satisfaction within thirty (30) days of our receipt of your Dispute Notice. We may choose to provide you with a final written settlement offer during this process. If we provide you with a final written settlement offer and you don't accept it, or we can't otherwise satisfactorily resolve your dispute, you can submit your dispute for resolution by arbitration before the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in the county where you live by filing a separate Demand for Arbitration online by following the instructions at https://apps.adr.org/webfile/. You will need our mailing address to file online which is:
Internet Order LLC
1600 JFK Boulevard
Philadelphia, PA 19103
If we have a dispute, we will submit our dispute for resolution by arbitration before the AAA in Philadelphia, PA. If either party files for arbitration, it will be conducted in accordance with the then current AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules. The arbitrator will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute including any claim that all or any part of the Member Terms, including this provision, are unenforceable. If you proceed to arbitration, we will pay all AAA filing, administration and arbitrator fees unless the arbitrator determines that your claim is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)). For claims brought by you of Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000.00) or less, you can choose whether the arbitration proceeds in person, by telephone or based only on submissions. The arbitrator may award any form of individual or equitable relief, including injunctive relief. Any award will be final and conclusive to the parties and may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. If you initiate arbitration and the arbitrator awards you relief that is greater than our final written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected, then we will pay you a minimum recovery of One Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00), plus we will reimburse any reasonable expenses incurred by your attorney, if any, including fees reasonably accrued for investigating, preparing and pursuing the claim in arbitration. Although under some laws we may have a right to an award of attorneys' fees and expenses if we prevail in arbitration, we agree that we will not seek such an award from you. You and your attorneys are not required to keep the results of the arbitration confidential. This provision shall not be construed to preclude any party from seeking injunctive relief to protect its rights pending an outcome in arbitration.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, VIA YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THESE DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROVISIONS, YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, AS WELL AS YOUR RIGHT TO BRING, JOIN OR PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR A CLASS MEMBER IN A CLASS ACTION SUIT BROUGHT AGAINST US, ANY PERSON RELATED TO US OR A SERVICE PROVIDER USED BY US TO PROVIDE THE SERVICE. You agree to the entry of injunctive relief to stop such a lawsuit or to remove you as a participant in such a suit. The General Terms and Conditions do not constitute a waiver of any of your rights and remedies to pursue a claim individually and not as a class action in binding arbitration as provided above. This provision preventing you from bringing, joining or participating in class action lawsuits is an independent agreement. You may opt-out of these Dispute Resolution Provisions by providing written notice of your decision within thirty (30) days of the date that you first place an order to purchase merchandise.
