Terms of Use

Terms and conditions


Acceptance of an order

Receipt by email of an order confirmation does not automatically mean that Les Éditions CEC inc. (hereinafter “CEC”) accepts the order and is not confirmation that CEC undertakes to sell the products in question.

CEC reserves the right, on reasonable grounds, to limit the quantities available of one or more products sold and reserves the right to correct, cancel, reject or terminate at any time an order that has been confirmed or billed to your credit card. In that case, CEC will reimburse you any amount that may have been charged. CEC may, at any time, have to verify personal or credit card information prior to accepting an order.

Out-of-stock products

An out-of-stock product is a product that is insufficient to completely fill an order. The product may be on order, missing or discontinued (if that is the case, you will be notified).

CEC lists all products that may be ordered. Please note that we do not necessarily have them in stock. If CEC has to wait for one or more out-of-stock items to become available, shipping of your order may be delayed.

Under no circumstances does CEC guarantee that the products offered on the Site will be available. You may cancel your order at any time prior to receipt by the Site of the out-of-stock product(s) by contacting CEC’s customer service. CEC shall not, under any circumstances, be liable for any damage you may suffer because a product is out of stock.

Product description

CEC and its affiliates make every effort to ensure that the information provided on the Site is accurate. However, CEC does not guarantee that the product descriptions or any other content of the Site is accurate, complete, reliable, up-to-date or error-free.


The prices of our products are in Canadian dollars and are net of applicable taxes. All orders, regardless of where they come from, are payable in Canadian dollars. CEC reserves the right to change its prices at any time. Products are always charged at the prices in effect at the time the order is registered.


CEC calculates the taxes based on the address to which the order will be shipped. For orders to be delivered within Canada, the taxes depend on the province; for example, for Quebec, the taxes added will be the G.S.T. (Goods and Services Tax) and the Q.S.T. (Quebec Sales Tax).


You must pay for your purchases by MasterCard or Visa, unless you already have an account with CEC. The customer agrees to pay the total cost and all applicable charges for the product purchased, including taxes. CEC may change the price after notifying the customer thereof. The customer alone is responsible for payment of the product purchased. The user alone is responsible for payment of the service offered by credit card. CEC is not liable for any payment problems related to the operation of the e-commerce service. In case of discrepancy between the price listed in the order confirmation and the price charged to the credit card, the latter shall prevail.

Delivery time

Delivery times depend on the destination and the delivery method chosen. Please allow for an additional two to five business days for processing, except for out-of-stock products. Note that you can follow the status of your order on the dashboard of your account.

Risk of loss

All purchases of merchandise on CEC’s site are made pursuant to a shipping contract. That means that the risk of loss and the ownership of the merchandise are transferred to you when we hand the merchandise over to the carrier.

Returns and refunds

All sales are final. No refunds or returns.
