Legal notice, disclaimer and terms of use ("Terms")

Your access to and use of the Royal Canadian Mint (the "Mint") website (the "Website"), and your access to, use of and engagement with the Mint's social media pages and accounts (the Mint's "Social Media") are subject to the following terms and conditions
  
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY AS ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE WEBSITE AND/OR ACCESS TO, USE OF OR ENGAGEMENT WITH THE MINT'S SOCIAL MEDIA, AS APPLICABLE, CONSTITUTES ACCEPTANCE OF THE TERMS.  IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, DO NOT ACCESS OR USE THE WEBSITE OR ACCESS, USE OR ENGAGE WITH THE MINT'S SOCIAL MEDIA.

Please note that your access to, use of and engagement with the Mint's Social Media is also subject to the terms of service/use of the relevant third party social media platform providers. The Mint has no control over the social media platform providers' terms of service/use, but you are strongly encouraged to read them as well. 

Amendments

The Mint reserves the right to modify these Terms at any time without prior notice, and such modifications shall be effective immediately after such changes are posted.  You agree that your continued access or use of the Website and/or access, use of or engagement with the Mint's Social Media after any changes are posted shall be deemed to constitute your acceptance of the Terms as modified.  It is your responsibility to review these terms regularly.  These Terms were last updated on April 18, 2019.  

Conditions of Sale
The Website may permit you to place orders to purchase products from the Mint. The Mint reserves the right to refuse or limit orders, and to change its prices and product offerings without notice if, for any reason, it should be found necessary to do so. The Mint also reserves the right to impose purchase quantity limits on certain items. No cancellation will be accepted after shipment. The date of shipment will be determined by the volume of orders received, product availability and other factors. Special shipping rates may apply to coin series. For orders of 6 or more coin rolls, additional shipping and handling fees will be charged. While every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the information, images and prices provided, the Mint reserves the right to make corrections if an error does occur.

International shipping to a U.S.A. address for orders that equal or exceed $2,000 U.S. in value:
The United States Customs and Border Protection (USCBP) requires that the U.S.-Based Ultimate Consignee or Foreign-Based Ultimate Consignee, or receiver of the goods, provides a U.S. Social Security Number (SSN) or Internal Revenue Service (IRS) employer identification number for any order equal to or exceeding $2,000 U.S.   In order to comply with the U.S.A. Customs regulations, the Mint will now require your SSN or IRS number when you place an order that equals or exceeds $2,000 U.S. in value. This information will be recorded in the U.S.A. Customs Service computer system for customs purposes only.
