Your permitted use of the Site is limited to the standard functionality of a website or mobile application, as applicable. In no event may the Site be used in a manner that: (i) is unlawful, fraudulent or deceptive; (ii) harasses, abuses, stalks, threatens, defames, impersonates, or otherwise infringes or violates the rights of any third party (including, without limitation, the rights of publicity or other proprietary rights); (iii) uses technology or other means not authorized by Word & Wonder to access Information; (iv) attempts to introduce viruses or any other computer code, files or programs that interrupt, destroy or limit the functionality of any computer software, hardware or telecommunications equipment; (v) attempts to gain unauthorized access to Word & Wonder’s systems, user accounts, or user personal information or login credentials; (vi) encourages conduct that would constitute a criminal offense or that gives rise to civil liability, (vii) attempts to damage, disable or overburden Word & Wonder’s servers or networks, or (viii) fails to comply with applicable third party terms (e.g., wireless carrier terms of service).

If you register an account on the Site, you are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your username, password and any other login credentials. You are responsible for all activity that occurs through your account, so if your credentials are used in an unauthorized manner, you must contact us immediately. You agree that you are solely responsible for your interaction with any other users of the Site, whether through the Site or through other means. Word & Wonder is not responsible or liable for the conduct of any other user or person.

Credit card information is always encrypted during transfer over networks.
Word & Wonder allows users to browse, view, choose, and purchase various products (“Products”) on the Site. We provide content to complement our products, and all our content is provided for informational purposes only. We may, in our sole discretion, change, delete, update, modify or otherwise alter products and content at any time without providing you notice, and, in addition, we may change the pricing, and availability of products in our sole discretion at any time without providing you notice. All photos, videos, and other images of products on the Site are for illustrative purposes only. The actual product may vary from that shown on the Site. We make reasonable efforts to accurately display the attributes of our products, including the applicable colors; however, the actual color you see will depend on your computer system, and we cannot guarantee that your computer will accurately display such colors. The inclusion of products on the Site at any time does not guarantee that these products will be available for purchase. Our current prices can be found on the Site.
We shall endeavor to dispatch the goods to you as soon as possible after you place your order (subject to the order having been accepted by us, as will be confirmed to you by email), normally within 2 working days or less if the goods are in stock, and in any event within 30 days beginning on the day after you place your order. If we are unable to dispatch the goods within that time we will email to let you know and give you an estimated delivery date and you will have the right to cancel your order and receive a full refund as set out in that email.
For delivery within the Domestic US, standard shipments will be delivered by USPS Media Mail (5-8 business days). Free shipping within the US can be applied to any order over $25, and will be delivered by USPS Media Mail. USPS Priority shipping (1-3 business days) can be selected for an additional fee, as specified on the checkout page.
International standard or priority shipping options are available using USPS postal services. Depending on your country, you may owe duties, taxes, or import fees in addition to our shipping rates, which only cover the transit cost of the products.
*Please note that USPS and other carriers are experiencing significant delays. We kindly request for customers to wait up to 14 business days from when the order was shipped before contacting us. The email you received with your tracking information is the best source for updates and the timing of your order. We promise it’ll be worth the wait!
When you order or pre-order a product from the Site (“Order”), you must provide us with information from your valid credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or any other issuer accepted by us) or PayPal account (“Payment Provider” and “Payment Provider Account”). You agree to pay all charges listed in the checkout process when you submit an Order in accordance with the fees, charges, and billing terms in effect at the time the charge is due and payable. Your Payment Provider agreement governs your use of the designated Payment Provider Account, and you must refer to that agreement, and not this TOS Agreement, to determine your rights and liabilities. By providing us with your Payment Provider Account, you agree that we are authorized to immediately charge your Payment Provider Account for all charges due and payable to us in connection with your Account and that no additional notice or consent is required. You agree to immediately notify us of any change in your billing address or Payment Provider Account used for payment hereunder. We may use a third party service provider for payment services (e.g., credit card transaction processing, merchant settlement, and related services). Information that you submit to the Website will be transmitted to and shared with these third parties, which may be located in other countries, in order to provide the Services, including but not limited to transaction processing and fraud protection. We reserve the right at any time to change billing methods, either immediately upon posting on the Site or by email delivery to you. Payment value will be in US dollars unless otherwise specified on the Site.
Our charges may be net of any applicable Sales Tax (defined below)that may be due in connection with the products provided under this Agreement. Please refer to your purchase receipt to determine whether your purchase includes the applicable Sales Tax. If Word & Wonder determines any Products, or payments for any Products, under this TOS Agreement are subject to Sales Tax in any jurisdiction and you have not remitted the applicable Sales Tax to Word & Wonder, you will be responsible for the payment of such Sales Tax and any related penalties or interest to the relevant tax authority, and you will indemnify us for any liability or expense we may incur in connection with such Sales Taxes. Upon our request, you will provide us with official receipts issued by the appropriate taxing authority, or other such evidence that you have paid all applicable taxes. For purposes of this Section, “Sales Tax” shall mean any sales or use tax, and any other tax measured by sales proceeds, that is the functional equivalent of a sales tax where the applicable taxing jurisdiction does not otherwise impose a sales or use tax.
We may, in our sole discretion, create discounts and promotional codes that may be redeemed for promotional value in your Account, or other features or benefits, subject to any additional terms that we establish on a per promotional code basis (“Promo Codes”). Promo Codes may only be used once per person. Only Promote Codes sent to you through official Word & Wonder communications channels are valid. You agree that Promote Codes: (i) must be used for the intended audience and purpose, and in a lawful manner; (ii) may not be duplicated, sold or transferred in any manner, or made available to the general public (whether posted to a public forum or otherwise), unless expressly permitted by us; (iii) may be disabled by us at any time for any reason without liability to us; (iv) may only be used pursuant to the specific terms that we establish for such Promo Code; (v) have no monetary value and are not redeemable for cash or any cash equivalent; and (vi) may expire prior to your use.
By submitting an Order for a Product with us you: (i) agree to purchase that product, (ii) represent that you are an authorized user of the Payment Provider Account provided, and (iii) represent that you are of legal age to use the Payment Provider Account provided. Each Order that you submit to us constitutes an offer to purchase. If you do not receive a message from us confirming receipt of your Order, please contact us at email@example.com before re-entering your Order. Our confirmation of receipt of your Order does not constitute our acceptance of your Order. We are only deemed to have accepted your Order once the product(s) you ordered have been shipped.
When you submit your Order, we may verify certain items before your Order if fulfilled, including your personal information, payment information, and creditworthiness.
Although we strive to accept all valid Orders, we reserve the right to limit, modify, deny or cancel any Order (including replacement Orders) for any reason, including if: (i) we discover an error, inaccuracy, or omission in pricing and/or other information about the product or receive insufficient or erroneous billing, payment and/or shipping information, (ii) we suspect an Order has been placed using stolen payment card information or otherwise appears to be connected to fraud, unauthorized reselling or another violation of this TOS Agreement, (iii) the ordered products is unavailable due to discontinuance or otherwise, (iv) the Order is connected with a previous payment dispute, or (v) the Order is associated with a user whom we suspect of abusing our Return Policy or of otherwise making fraudulent claims for product replacements or refunds based on unfounded quality control, lost package, wrong items, or order processing error complaints, or other false information. If any product is discontinued or otherwise becomes unavailable, we reserve the right to cancel your Order and provide you a refund for the amount paid for the product.
Pricing and shipping information, including the total amount to be charged to your Payment Provider Account, will be displayed during the checkout process before you submit your Order. All prices and products, even after you submit your Order, are subject to change. For more information about product pricing, please visit the page for that product on the Site.
To protect our goodwill and the intellectual property rights of Word & Wonder and its licensors and suppliers, any resale of products and Gift Cards for personal and/or business profit without our prior express written consent is strictly prohibited. Except as may be previously and expressly authorized by us in writing, we also prohibit the offering, use, transfer, or acceptance of our products and Gift Cards for promotional purposes (e.g., as prizes in contests or sweepstakes) or in connection with any lottery, raffle or wagering scheme. We reserve the right to bar any users we suspect of violating this Section (or any other provision of this TOS Agreement) from further use of our properties and to refuse, limit or cancel any related Orders and/or suspend or cancel any related Accounts.
We reserve the right to:
- Refuse any Order you place with us;
- Correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions (including the price) with regard to the products or services offered;
- Change or update information in connection with any products offered;
- Modify or cancel your Order, even after your Order has been confirmed, without notice or liability to you; and
- Limit, reject, modify, or cancel Orders, in our sole discretion, that appear to be placed by resellers or other unauthorized parties.
If we modify or cancel your Order, we will attempt to notify you at the last email address you provided us.

Any dispute relating to any activity on www.wordandwonder.org or the purchase of any Word & Wonder products shall be submitted to confidential arbitration in Illinois, Kate County, unless you have in some way threatened or violated Word & Wonder’s intellectual property rights, whereby Word & Wonder may seek an injunctive.
These Terms shall be subject to, governed by and construed under the laws of the State of Illinois in the United States of America, without regard to conflict of law principles. The Site is operated from the State of Illinois and is intended to be accessed only by persons in the United States and Canada. Access to, or use of, the Site or information, materials, products, or services on the Site may be prohibited by law in certain countries or jurisdictions. You are responsible for compliance with any applicable laws of the country from which you are accessing the Site.
You hereby consent and waive all objections to the exclusive jurisdiction of the appropriate state court in Kane County and federal court in the State of Illinois and venue therein to resolve any controversy or claim of whatever nature arising out of or relating to use of the Site, products, and services. However, Word & Wonder retains the right to bring legal proceedings in any jurisdiction where we believe that a violation of these Terms is taking place or originating from.
If any provision of these Terms is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable under any applicable statute or rule of law, such provision shall be deemed amended to achieve as nearly as possible the same economic effect as the original provision, and the remaining provisions of these Terms shall in no way be affected or impaired.
These terms and conditions may not be modified by you. The following rights and obligations shall survive termination of this Agreement: (i) your representations and warranties, indemnification obligations, and use restrictions; (ii) Word & Wonder’s limitation of liability, waiver of warranties, and intellectual property rights; and (iii) any other right or obligation of the parties in this Agreement that, by its nature, should survive termination of this Agreement. The relationship between Word & Wonder and you, as established by these Terms, is that of independent contractors, and nothing contained herein shall be construed to constitute either party as the agent of the other party, or as partners, joint venturers, co-owners, employers/employees, franchisors/franchisees, or otherwise as participants in a joint or common undertaking. Word & Wonder exercises no control over you other than the ability to limit or terminate your ability to use the Site. Word & Wonder may assign its rights and responsibilities hereunder without notice to you, and these Terms will inure to the benefit of Word & Wonder’s successors, assigns, and licensees. Word & Wonder’s failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms, or its delay in taking actions permitted herein, does not constitute a waiver of any of the rights or permissions granted herein, including its right to enforce these Terms to the fullest extent possible. Word & Wonder’s failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive Word & Wonder’s right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. Nothing in these Terms shall be deemed to confer any third-party rights or benefits. For purposes of these Terms, the word “including” and correlative terms shall mean inclusion without limitation, and the word “or” is not exclusive. Any headings contained herein are used only as a matter of convenience and reference, and are in no way intended to define, limit, expand or describe the scope of these Terms. All references to these Terms and the words “herein”, “hereof”, “hereto” and “hereunder” and other words of similar import refer to these Terms as a whole and not to any particular section. Any rule of construction to the effect that ambiguities are to be resolved against the drafting party will not be applied in the construction or interpretation of these Terms.
To the extent that you access or use any portion of the Site via Apple Inc. or another mobile application platform provider (collectively, “Platform Provider”), you acknowledge and agree that these Terms are between you and Word & Wonder, not with Platform Provider, and Platform Provider is not responsible for the Site or the functionality or content thereof.

Your right to use the Site through a Platform Provider is limited to use on devices that you own or control, unless you are accessing and using the Site via a permitted account on a family sharing or volume purchasing plan.
