Terms of Sale

By placing an order you are offering to purchase a product subject to the following terms and conditions. All orders are subject to availability and confirmation of the order price. Dispatch times may vary according to availability and subject to any delays resulting from shipping delays or force majeure for which we will not be responsible.

Product Usage and Intention

All items on our website are made for Commercial use.

Commercial appliances that are installed in residences can void your homeowner’s insurance and / or warranty. Commercial equipment extracts more electricity than residential appliances. Most items are not insulated as thoroughly as residential appliances and can generate more heat. Many commercial items require a ventilation system and/or a fire-suppression system to stay up to safety code.

Commercial Refrigeration and Cooking Equipment

It is important to keep in mind that many of these items may not meet your consumer-level expectations if used in your home. Commercial cooking equipment:

  • Is designed for functionality and heavy use commercially, and may not meet your expectations in terms of aesthetics or ease-of-use.
  • Is often much louder than a comparable non-commercial piece of equipment.
  • Consumes much more power than consumer-style equipment.
  • Is not insulated as thoroughly as consumer-level equipment and generates much more heat. Many pieces of commercial equipment also require a ventilation hood system, and a fire-suppression system to adhere to local fire and building codes.
  • Installed in a non-commercial setting will most likely void your homeowner’s insurance and the equipment manufacturer’s warranty.

Pricing and Availability

While we try and ensure that all details, descriptions and prices which appear on this Website are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of any goods which you have ordered we will inform you of this as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you we will treat the order as cancelled. If you cancel and you have already paid for the goods, you will receive a full refund.

Sales Tax

Sales Tax is only charged for orders purchased from the Florida State.

Shipping

Except where free shipping is included, delivery costs will be charged and included in the total cost of your order. Large and heavy items are shipped via common carrier. Unless stated otherwise, such shipments are made via liftgate delivery. You will be responsible for moving the product delivered from the liftgate to your premises. We can only ship product to the continental United States (i.e. Hawaii, Alaska and foreign locations are excluded).

Shipments via common carrier

Orders that are too large or heavy to ship via UPS or Fedex will be delivered via common carrier on a full-size tractor trailer. If your order ships via Common Carrier, it is your responsibility (the customer) to unload the product from the truck and take it into your place of business. When your order ships via Common Carrier, we will provide you with tracking information to allow you to prepare for delivery.
When your order arrives via Common Carrier, please do the following:

  1. Inspect the item for any signs of damage
  2. If signs of damage are evident you MUST do the following:
  • Note the damage/issues clearly on the delivery receipt before signing (ie – “damaged box”, “dented door” etc)
  • Keep your copy of the delivery receipt
  • Contact us within 1 business day
  • Keep the damaged packaging materials for inspection

If you claim damage on all or part of your shipment, and this was not noted on the Proof of Delivery Receipt, we CANNOT guarantee compensation for damages. If you signed the delivery receipt without noting damages, you have confirmed that your shipment was received in good condition.

Additional Accessorial Charges

Any, and all additional charges will be the responsibility of the customer. Such charges may include change of address, residential delivery, limited access, re-delivery, lift-gate, delivery appointment, and storage fees. Any accessorial charges incurred at the time of delivery will be billed back to the customer.

Limited Access Issues

It is the responsibility of the customer to notify “Kitchen Monkey” at the time of ordering about any potential delivery access issues. If the truck arrives and is unable to access your location or turn around, any and all charges associated with re-delivery due to unknown limited access will be the responsibility of the customer (see additional accessorial charges).

Delivery Refusal

If delivery is refused for any reason (other than freight damage), the customer will be responsible for all initial shipping and re-delivery charges. Freight/Common Carrier deliveries are always to a loading dock or curbside, even with lift-gate. “Curbside” means next to the curb on the street. Drivers are not obligated to deliver freight into driveways, garages or any other locations. If refusing delivery due to damage, it must be noted on the delivery receipt.

Payment

We accept all major credit cards, including MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover as well as PayPal as form of payment. Upon receiving your order we carry out a standard authorization check on your payment card to ensure there are sufficient funds to fulfill the transaction. Your card will be debited upon authorization being received. Once the funds are received, your order will be processed and shipped.

We also accept payment via PayPal on our website as an additional payment option.

Warranty

All warranties are handled based on the manufacturers’ warranty policies. If a problem arises with the product purchased, you should directly contact the manufacturer of the item as directed in the documents included by them with your product.

Kitchen Monkey and vendors assume no liability for parts or labor coverage for component failure or other damages resulting from installation in non-commercial or residential applications. We also reserve the right to deny shipment for residential usage; in a case this occurs, we will notify you as soon as possible.

Returns

You have 30 calendar days to return an item from the date you received it. To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. Your item must be in the original packaging. Your item needs to have the receipt or proof of purchase included in the return shipment.

Return Shipping

You will be responsible for paying for your own shipping costs for returning your item. Original shipping costs are non­refundable. If you receive a refund, the cost of original shipping will be deducted from your refund.

For all the items in our “free shipping program”, additional shipping and handling fees will be assessed and deducted from the refund amount.

Restocking Fee

Returned items are subject to a restocking fee. In order to maintain our competitive prices, we charge 20% or 10$ restocking fee (whichever is greater) to cover the cost for items returned to our warehouse and processing back into stock. The restocking fee will be deducted from any refund.

Refunds

Once we receive your item, we will inspect it and notify you that we have received your returned item. We will immediately notify you on the status of your refund after inspecting the item. If your return is approved, we will immediately initiate a refund to your credit card (or original method of payment). You will receive the credit within a certain amount of days, depending on your card issuer’s policies.

California Online Privacy Protection Act
CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require any person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting Personally Identifiable Information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared. – See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe.

This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
