By placing an Order for Goods through our Services, including this Website, you warrant that you are over 18 years of age and legally capable of entering into binding contracts. You can place an Order by creating an Account on our Website or checkout as a guest.


Your Information

If you wish to place an Order for Goods available through our Services, you may be asked to supply certain information relevant to your Order including, without limitation, your first name, your last name, your email, your phone number, your credit card number or PayPal account information, the expiration date of your credit card, your credit card’s CVV code, your billing address, and your shipping address. You represent and warrant that: (i) you have the legal right to use any credit or debit card(s), PayPal account or other payment method(s) in connection with any Order; and that (ii) the information you supply to us is true, correct and complete. By submitting such information, you grant us the right to provide the information to payment processing third parties for purposes of facilitating the completion of your Order.

By placing an Order through our Services you also agree to receive emails about the progress of your Order, such as Order confirmation emails, shipping confirmation emails, Order cancellation emails, etc. These emails will be sent out from contact@youngw.ca. Please make sure to check your junk, spam or Google Promotions folders for such emails.


Order Cancellation

We reserve the right to refuse or cancel your Order at any time for certain reasons including but not limited to:

  • Goods availability
  • Errors in the description or prices for Goods
  • Errors in your Order

We reserve the right to refuse or cancel your Order if fraud or an unauthorized or illegal transaction is suspected.


Returns and Order Cancellation Rights

Any Goods you purchase can only be returned in accordance with these Terms and Conditions and our Return Policy.

You can cancel an existing Order for any reason up until the point where you have received a shipping confirmation email from YW. In order to cancel your Order, please email us at contact@youngw.ca with your Order number. We will reimburse you no later than 14 days from the day on which we received your cancellation request. We will use the same means of payment as you used for the Order, and you do not charge any fees for such reimbursement.

In the case you have already received your Order and are not happy with it, please let us know in writing via email at contact@youngw.ca within 30 days of the delivery date of your Order to obtain a return authorization number. YW will refund the original Order amount minus the shipping fees of the original Order if all Goods are returned to us in the same condition as you received them. Goods that are damaged or not in the same condition as you received them or which show signs of wear and tear simply beyond opening the original packaging will not be refunded. You should therefore take reasonable care of the purchased Goods while they are in your possession. You should also include your receipt, all product instructions, documents and product packaging and wrappings. We will reimburse you no later than 14 days from the day on which we receive the returned Goods in new condition. We will use the same means of payment as you used for the Order, and will not charge you any fees for such reimbursement. YW does not cover the return shipping costs and is not responsible for lost mail of returned Goods.

The following Goods cannot be returned:

  • The supply of Goods made to your specifications or clearly personalized.
  • The supply of Goods which according to their nature are not suitable to be returned, deteriorate rapidly or where the date of expiry is over.
  • The supply of Goods which are, after delivery, according to their nature, inseparably mixed with other items.
  • The supply of digital downloads in PDF format.
  • The supply of digital content which is not supplied on a tangible medium if the performance has begun with your prior express consent and you have acknowledged your loss of cancellation right.
  • The supply of Goods marked as “On Sale”.

In case of quality issues, shipping errors or manufacturing defects we will ask you to send us a photograph of the problem to contact@youngw.ca, along with details about your concern within 30 days of the delivery date of your Order. YW will then – depending on the circumstances – either dispatch a replacement item to you, issue a refund or issue a store credit.

YW is not responsible for lost mail. In case your Order has not arrived within 45 days of the ship date, please contact YW no earlier than 45 days after the ship date and no later than 80 days after the ship date at contact@youngw.ca. We will do our best to assist you.

YW reserves the right to change its return policy at any time.


Availability, errors and inaccuracies

We are constantly updating our offerings of Goods within our Services. The availability of Goods listed for sale is subject to change. The Goods available may be mispriced, described inaccurately, or unavailable, and we may experience delays in updating information regarding our Goods on the Website, in our advertising or in any other channels.

We cannot and do not guarantee the accuracy or completeness of any information, including prices, product images, specifications, availability, or descriptions of additional services. We reserve the right to change and update information and the right to correct errors, inaccuracies, or omissions at any time without prior notice.



All prices on YW’s Services, including its Website, are listed in Canadian Dollars (CAD). The Company reserves the right to revise its prices at any time. Prices are listed exclusive of Canadian sales taxes (GST/HST). Goods sold to Visitors with a Canadian shipping address are subject to applicable Canadian provincial and federal sales taxes. Payment can be made through various payment methods, such as Visa, MasterCard, American Express cards and PayPal. Payment cards (credit cards or debit cards) are subject to validation checks and authorization by your card issuer and our payment processing Service Providers. If we do not receive the required authorization, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery of your Order. Orders with failed payments will be canceled within 14 days if no payment is received.

YW’s Website is secured by Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to make sure that any information transmitted from the browser to the server, including Personal Data, is encrypted and protected. Please note that YW does not store or collect your payment card details. That information is provided directly to our third-party payment processors, Moneris and PayPal, whose use of your Personal Data is governed by their own privacy policies. These payment processors adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of payment information.

Orders from YW will be shown on your bank statements as “YOUNGW” or “YOUNGWTORONTO”.


Orders fulfilled by Drop-ship Suppliers

Some of the Goods sold on YW may be fulfilled by Drop-ship Suppliers located in Canada, the USA or other countries. Goods sold by YW and fulfilled by a Drop-ship Supplier are labelled as “Sold by: Young W” and have the Drop-ship Supplier indicated on the individual product detail page as “Supplier: (Drop-ship Supplier name)”.

For Orders fulfilled by Drop-ship Suppliers, YW will share Order information (first name, last name, phone number, shipping address, products ordered, the quantity ordered, their chosen shipping method) with Drop-ship Suppliers as necessary for Order fulfillment. Orders will then then be shipped out from the Drop-ship Supplier’s warehouse directly to the customer.


Orders fulfilled by Product Vendors

Some of the Goods sold on YW may be fulfilled by Product Vendors located in Canada, the USA or other countries. Goods sold by third-party Product Vendors and fulfilled by a Product Vendor are labelled as “Sold by: (Product Vendor name)”. Product Vendors set their own shipping rates, therefore Orders of Goods from a specific Product Vendor cannot be combined with Orders of Goods sold by YW (i.e. Goods labelled as “Sold by: Young W”) or with Orders of Goods sold by a different Product Vendor.

Since Orders fulfilled by a particular Product Vendor can only contain Goods from that Product Vendor, a restriction will appear in the eCommerce cart, should your Order contain Goods from more than one Product Vendor or a combination of Goods from YW and a Product Vendor – in that case we would ask you to place two separate Orders.

For Orders fulfilled by a Product Vendor, YW will share Order information (first name, last name, phone number, shipping address, products ordered, the quantity ordered, their chosen shipping method) with Product Vendors as necessary for Order fulfillment. Orders will then then be shipped out from the Product Vendor’s warehouse directly to the customer.


Orders fulfilled by another retailer when making a purchase after clicking on an affiliate link

YW shares book recommendations on its Website for which it may or may not earn affiliate commissions. All books sold and fulfilled by third parties recommended by YW are labelled as “Sold by: An indie bookstore near you”.

YW shares book recommendation on its Website by showing affiliate links to YW’s presence on Bookshop.org US, Bookshop.org UK and IndieBound, so that Visitors can purchase books directly from these and other online book retailers. If a customer purchases a book recommended by YW through one of YW’s Bookshop.org US, Bookshop.org UK or IndieBound affiliate links, YW makes a small commission from the sale of this book.

YW also shares book recommendation links through Bookmanager’s SHOP LOCAL API. YW does not earn a commission from any sales of books on Bookmanager’s website or from any sales of books on third-party bookshop websites which use Bookmanager.

Intellectual Property

The Services of YW and its original content (excluding Visitor Content provided by you or other Visitors), features and functionality are and will remain the exclusive property of the Company and its licensors. The Services are protected by copyright, and other laws of both the Country and foreign countries. Our content, logo and brand elements may not be used in connection with any product or service without the prior written consent of the Company.


Links to Other Websites

Our Services may contain links to third-party web sites or services that are not owned or controlled by the Company.

The Company has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third-party web sites or services. Third party websites may utilize marketing and/or statistics Cookies. You acknowledge and agree that the Company shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with the use of or reliance on any such third-party content, goods or services available on or through any such websites or services. We strongly advise you to read the terms and conditions and privacy policies of any third-party websites or services that you visit.

Blog articles or web pages on YW may include embedded content (e.g. videos from Vimeo or Bandcamp, images, PDF articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the Visitor has visited the other website. These websites may collect data about you, use Cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an Account and are logged into that website. Wherever possible, YW will make efforts to embed content to other websites in “DoNotTrack”-mode.

Our Services may link to third-party web pages with the use of printed QR codes. Some of these third-party web pages linked to via QR code may place marketing and/or statistics Cookies on your Device, even if the web page visited is a YW URL with embedded video content from third-party websites. By purchasing Goods from YW you acknowledge that the Company has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third-party web sites or services linked to via QR code. You further acknowledge and agree that the Company shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with the use of or reliance on any such third-party content, goods or services available on or through any such web sites or services linked to via QR code.

To the extent that YW does make use of digital event software (such as Crowdcast or Zoom, for example), has an affiliate bookstore presence on Bookshop.org US, Bookshop.org UK and IndieBound or uses social media platforms for certain marketing purposes (such as Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest or LinkedIn, for example), these Terms and Conditions do not apply to YW’s presence on these platforms, due to the fact that these platforms are governed by their own terms and conditions.


Visitors under the age of 18

You represent that you are over the age of 18. The Company does not permit those under 18 to use the Services.



We may terminate or suspend your Account immediately, without prior notice or liability, for any reason whatsoever, including without limitation if you breach these Terms and Conditions.

Upon termination, your right to use the Services will cease immediately.


Limitation of Liability

Notwithstanding any damages that you might incur, the entire liability of the Company and any of its suppliers under any provision of these Terms and your exclusive remedy for all of the foregoing shall be limited to the amount actually paid by you through the Service or $25 CAD if you haven’t purchased anything through the Services.

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event shall the Company or its suppliers be liable for any special, incidental, indirect, or consequential damages whatsoever (including, but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, loss of data or other information, for business interruption, for personal injury, loss of privacy arising out of or in any way related to the use of or inability to use the Service, third-party software and/or third-party hardware used with the Service, or otherwise in connection with any provision of this Terms), even if the Company or any supplier has been advised of the possibility of such damages and even if the remedy fails of its essential purpose.

Some states do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, which means that some of the above limitations may not apply. In these states, each party’s liability will be limited to the greatest extent permitted by law.


“AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” Disclaimer

The Services are provided to you “AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” and with all faults and defects without warranty of any kind. To the maximum extent permitted under applicable law, the Company, on its own behalf, expressly disclaims all warranties, whether express, implied, statutory or otherwise, with respect to the Services, including all implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title and non-infringement, and warranties that may arise out of course of dealing, course of performance, usage or trade practice. Without limitation to the foregoing, the Company provides no warranty or undertaking, and makes no representation of any kind that the Services will meet your requirements, achieve any intended results, be compatible or work with any other software, applications, Devices, systems or services, operate without interruption, meet any performance or reliability standards or be error free or that any errors or defects can or will be corrected.

Without limiting the foregoing, neither the Company nor any of the company’s provider makes any representation or warranty of any kind, express or implied: (i) as to the operation or availability of the Services, or the information, content, and materials or products included thereon; (ii) that the Services will be uninterrupted or error-free; (iii) as to the accuracy, reliability, or currency of any information or content provided through the Services; or (iv) that the Services, its servers, the content, or emails sent from or on behalf of the Company are free of viruses, scripts, trojan horses, worms, malware, timebombs or other harmful components.

Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain types of warranties or limitations on applicable statutory rights of a Consumer, so some or all of the above exclusions and limitations may not apply to you. But in such a case the exclusions and limitations set forth in this section shall be applied to the greatest extent enforceable under applicable law.


Governing Law

These Terms and Conditions shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the Province of Ontario and the laws of Canada applicable therein, without regard to principles of conflicts of laws. Your use of the Services may also be subject to other local, provincial, state, national, federal or international laws.

Severability and Waiver



If any provision of these Terms is held to be unenforceable or invalid, such provision will be changed and interpreted to accomplish the objectives of such provision to the greatest extent possible under applicable law and the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect.



Except as provided herein, the failure to exercise a right or to require performance of an obligation under this Terms shall not effect a party’s ability to exercise such right or require such performance at any time thereafter nor shall be the waiver of a breach constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach.


Translation Interpretation

These Terms and Conditions were originally written in English (CA). In the event of a conflict between a translated version of our Terms and Conditions and the English version, the English version will take precedence.


Changes to These Terms and Conditions

We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time. If a revision is material, we will make reasonable efforts to provide at least 30 days’ notice prior to any new terms taking effect. What constitutes a material change will be determined at our sole discretion.
