Prices do not include shipping and handling or sales taxes (unless otherwise indicated). While Tool Academy strives to maintain accurate information about pricing and availability of products and services on this website, we make no guarantee of stock availability at the time of placing your order or thereafter, nor can we guarantee complete accuracy of product information or pricing.

All payments are processed in Canadian Dollars (CAD). Tool Academy does not accept other forms of currency. Tool Academy is not liable for exchange rates and international order fees assessed and applied by your financial institution if you use any other currency as payment.
Your submission of an order is not confirmation of an offer by us to sell, but instead is an offer by you to purchase the products as advertised at the time of ordering. Your receipt of an order confirmation does not constitute acceptance by Tool Academy of your offer to purchase. Your order is confirmed only upon receipt of a shipping confirmation from Tool Academy. Tool Academy reserves the right to, at our sole discretion, accept, correct, adjust, limit, or decline any offer to purchase made by you for any reason, including but not limited to errors in the advertised price of products, typographical errors, or errors in product descriptions or pricing.

Should your order be partially or fully cancelled prior to the funds being fully processed, Tool Academy will release the hold on the funds in the applicable amount.
