Terms and Conditions of Sale
In-Effect Date: August 18, 2021
These Terms and Conditions of Sale (the “Terms”) apply to your purchase of products (hereinafter referred to as the “Products”) from our website: www.flo.com, any associated sites, our mobile application or our transactional pages, including, without limitation, https://store.en.flo.com/ (the “Site”), owned or operated by Services FLO Inc. (“FLO”, “we”, “us” or “our”).
The Terms constitute a legally binding agreement between you and FLO regarding your purchase of the Products. The version of the Terms posted on the Site on the date of your order applies to your purchase of the Products. We invite you to read them carefully before entering into a transaction and to contact us if you have any questions. By placing an order, you acknowledge that you have read, understood, and accepted without reservation, the present Terms. The Terms do not alter, however, in any way the terms and conditions of any other agreement you may have with FLO, unless otherwise agreed to in writing by FLO.
You are solely responsible (and FLO has no responsibility to you or to any third party) for any breach of your obligations under the Terms and for the consequences (including any loss or damage which FLO may suffer) resulting from any such breach.
Purchase of Products

If you create an account with a password, you must keep this password strictly confidential and not disclose it or share it with anyone. You are fully responsible for the use of your account and your password and any orders placed thereunder, even by a third party. If you know or suspect that someone else knows or has used your account and/or your password, you must notify FLO immediately.
You may not check out as a guest or use your account to purchase the Products for commercial purposes such as reselling new Products.
When you purchase a Product, either as a guest or with an account, you may be required to provide information about yourself (such as identification, contact details and financial information such as your credit card number). You agree that any information you give to FLO will always be accurate, correct, complete, and up to date.
By placing an order through the Site, you make an offer to purchase the Products you have selected, subject to the Terms. Orders you place with FLO on the Site may be subject to minimum and maximum quantities and are conditional on availability.
The order you place on the Site will not constitute a binding contract unless and until FLO shows on the Site a confirmation of the completion of the transaction. You will receive within 15 days after the completion of the transaction an email containing the invoice for the purchase of the Product.
The data registered by FLO constitutes full proof of the order and the completed transaction. The data registered by the payment system constitutes full proof of the financial transactions.
FLO reserves the discretionary right to refuse orders for any legal reason, without compensation, and/or in the following instances: (1) if FLO has concerns in relation to your creditworthiness, (2) if FLO suspects you of improperly reselling Products or (3) if you have unpaid invoices.
Prices for the Products (including applicable taxes) and shipping fees will be charged and billed at the rates and in such currency indicated on the Site at the time of confirmation of the transaction. Shipping fees will be calculated according to the address of delivery. FLO reserves the right to modify the prices of its Products and shipping fees from time to time.
Payment of the purchase price for the Products, shipping fees and applicable taxes shall be made by credit card at the time of the order. No transaction shall be completed, and no Product shall be shipped, unless confirmation of such payment has been received by FLO.
Please note that the issuer of your credit card may charge you certain fees, such as transaction fees or other fees relating to the processing of your payment and credit card. Check with the issuer of your credit card for details. FLO shall not be liable for delays caused by or extra fees charged by the credit card issuer.
Shipping and Transfer of Ownership
All orders confirmed by FLO will be shipped to the delivery address you specify when you place your order. Products will be shipped by a carrier authorized by FLO, the details of which shall be confirmed to you by email at the time of shipping. FLO shall make commercially reasonable efforts to ship within 10 business days after receipt of an order.
Subject to the carrier’s terms and conditions of delivery, FLO assumes all risk of loss and damage during transport until delivery to the address you provided to us when you placed your order.
Title of ownership to the Products shall transfer to you at the time the Products are delivered to the address you provided to us when you placed your order as reported by the carrier undertaking delivery.

Subject to the conditions set forth in this “Returns” section, all unused Products purchased from FLO may be returned for any reason within 30 calendar days from the date of delivery. (An “unused” Product means a Product that was never used, damaged or installed.) The Product must be returned in its original packaging with all manuals and parts and must include the UPC code and the original receipt. Products may only be returned in the country in which they were purchased.
All returns must be pre-authorized in writing by FLO’s Customer Service. To request such pre-authorization, please contact FLO’s Customer Service at this email address firstname.lastname@example.org specifying the serial number, the reason for the return and the confirmation it is an unused Product. A return merchandise authorization number will be issued together with such written pre-authorization and must be indicated on the return package. You assume the risks and expense of returns, and you may use the carrier of your choice. It is advisable to use a carrier that provides proof of delivery. You retain ownership of the Product until it is delivered to us at the return address specified in the return merchandise authorization. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH HEREIN AND PURSUANT TO THE LIMITED PRODUCT WARRANTY, YOU MAY NOT RETURN ANY PRODUCTS TO FLO AND FLO SHALL BE UNDER NO OBLIGATION TO REPLACE OR REPAIR OR REFUND ANY PAYMENTS FOR SUCH PRODUCTS.
FLO will use its commercially reasonable efforts to process all Products returned in accordance with these Terms within ten (10) business days after receipt. Upon satisfactory inspection of the returned Products, FLO will refund the purchase price, the shipping fees charged by us when we first sent you the Product and the taxes collected. If a Product has been removed from the original packaging, FLO may deduct from the original purchase price a repackaging fee equal to 10% of the purchase price. All refunds are made through the same credit card as used for the original purchase of the Product. If we find that you have damaged or used the Product, we will not provide a refund, but we will send you the Product to an address you specify, provided you pay the shipping fees in advance. In addition, no refunds will be provided to you if you provide the wrong or insufficient address or provide no address. You are solely responsible for unclaimed packages due to the foregoing and for entering the correct delivery address. If you do not want the Product to be returned to you, you may surrender it to FLO and relinquish all title and interest in the Product.
