The following provisions specifically relate to the E-Store portion of the DOCU Site. All other provisions of this Agreement apply to the E-Store as well:
Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not constitute DOCU's acceptance of your order for products or services offered through the DOCU Site, nor does it constitute confirmation of DOCU's offer to sell you a particular product or service. DOCU reserves the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept, decline, or limit your order for any reason. Your credit card will not be charged until DOCU has accepted your order and prepared your order for shipment or for download. All orders placed over $2000.00 (U.S.) must obtain pre-approval with an acceptable method of payment, as established by our credit and fraud avoidance department. We may require additional verifications or information before accepting any order. Price and availability of products and services offered through the DOCU Site are subject to change without prior notice. To the extent we provide information on the availability of DOCU Products or products and services provided by third party vendors, suppliers, publishers, and manufacturers (collectively Third Party Products), we attempt to be as accurate as possible. However, DOCU does not warrant that product descriptions, product availability or other information on the DOCU Site is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. DOCU will not be liable for any lack of availability of DOCU Products or Third Party Products you may order through the DOCU Site. If your purchase order or any other communication with DOCU contains provisions inconsistent with this Agreement, this Agreement will prevail.
Information regarding shipping and handling, discounts, returns, and other customer services for all products offered through the DOCU Site will be as set forth in the "FAQ" section of the E-Store.
Receipts/Coupons/VIP And Academic Pricing
If you would like a receipt for any product or service ordered through the DOCU Site, you must: (1) send an e-mail to [email protected]; and (2) enter your e-mail address and the date of purchase. You will then receive an e-mail from DOCU with your receipt. To receive VIP discounts on products and services offered through the DOCU Site, enter your VIP code in the VIP input box on the DOCU Site, and press the VIP code button. Once you enter your code, all applicable prices offered through the DOCU Site will be changed to reflect your code discount.

If you qualify and would like to purchase products or services using academic pricing, please send an e-mail to [email protected] from your school e-mail account or call our Customer Service team at 1-603-436-6868. We determine eligibility for academic pricing by verifying a faxed copy of your student or school employee ID. DOCU reserves the right to refuse to offer VIP code or academic discounts at any time, in its sole discretion.
The purchase area of the E-Store is designed to be secure. This means that any information you send us is protected by encryption. All messages are sent in an encrypted "digital envelope" and authenticated to verify the identity of both the sender and the receiver of the transaction. However, no connection to the Internet is completely secure. If you experience fraudulent use of your credit card as a result of shopping with DOCU, notify your credit card company in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures. Most companies will either cover all of the fraudulent purchases or hold you liable for a maximum of $50. Should your credit card company discover credit card fraud and hold you liable for some portion of the unauthorized charges, and provided the purchase was made through our secure server, DOCU will reimburse you for the maximum liability of $50. You can always order products or services by telephone or fax. Call us at 1-603-436-6868.
DOCU offers through the E-Store both DOCU Products and Third Party Products. Certain DOCU Products and Third Party Products may be subject to End User License Agreements in addition to this Agreement. In the event of a conflict between any provision of a DOCU End User License Agreement and this Agreement, the provision of the DOCU End User License Agreement will control as to the particular conflicting provision.
DOCU Products: During the period within thirty (30) days after you download a DOCU Product or within thirty (30) days after you receive a DOCU Product if the product is shipped to you rather than downloaded (Warranty Period), DOCU will, at DOCU's sole option and without charge, replace the DOCU Product if it fails to conform to the product's accompanying documentation in effect at the time of shipment or download, or refund the purchase price of the DOCU Product, provided that DOCU will not have any liability whatsoever for any damage to or defect in a DOCU Product resulting directly or indirectly from your abuse or misuse of the product. For you to receive the benefit of this limited warranty, the following must occur: (1) you must notify DOCU of your claim of an alleged defect or nonconformity within the Warranty Period; (2) you must return any DOCU Product to DOCU (if the product was shipped), or certify in writing to DOCU that the product has been destroyed (if the product was downloaded); and (3) DOCU must determine that the DOCU Product is defective or nonconforming. If the DOCU Product has been shipped to you and the package is unopened, you may return the DOCU Product to DOCU, at your expense, any time within the Warranty Period for a refund of the purchase price.
Technical Support for DOCU Products: During the Warranty Period, DOCU will provide technical support to you for DOCU Products, without charge. If you wish to purchase a technical support package beyond the Warranty Period, you may do so through the E-Store, but the support will be governed by a separate Support Agreement.
Third Party Products: All Third Party Products ordered through the E-Store are subject to the terms and conditions of the End User License Agreement between you and the third party vendor (Third Party) (if any), and any other Third Party policies and procedures. All warranties, maintenance, updates, liabilities or other obligations related to Third Party Products will be provided for by the Third Party, and DOCU will not be responsible for any Third Party Products, except that DOCU will coordinate returns of Third Party Products to Third Parties in accordance with the customer service policies set forth in the FAQ.
Prices listed through the DOCU Site do not include any tax or other governmental charge or assessment on the sale, shipment, download, or use of any products sold to you. Such taxes and charges, when applicable, may appear as separate additional charges. You will be solely responsible for, and will pay to DOCU upon demand, any such tax, charge or assessment, unless you have furnished to DOCU an appropriate valid certificate of exemption issued by or acceptable to the tax authority in question.
