LEGAL NOTICE – USER AGREEMENT
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING DISCLAIMER AND TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY. By accessing and using www.shopico.ca (the Site), you (the “User” or “you”) fully accept to be bound by the terms and conditions governing the Site. If you have not already done so, please familiarize yourself with these terms and conditions in question. If you do not agree with these terms and conditions, DISCONTINUE ALL USE OF THIS SITE IMMEDIATELY.
These terms and conditions are subject to change from time to time. Any such changes can be viewed at the same URL address as the original Legal Notice. If you visit or use the Site after a change or update has been made, your subsequent use of the Site shall be construed as your acceptance of such changes.
Shopico provides Users with the opportunity to purchase goods and services from Merchants at a reduced rate during a limited period of time (a “Deal”). The Merchant is solely responsible for providing the goods and services purchased through the Site. Shopico acts as an agent only and is not the actual seller or provider of the gift certificates or goods and services in question.
Each Deal has specific terms associated with the Deal, as established by the merchant who offers the Deal. Deal specific terms supersede any inconsistent terms in this User Agreement.
By placing an order for a given Deal, you are offering to purchase the Deal you have selected on the terms, restrictions and conditions associated with that Deal, as established by the merchant. Once you’ve placed your order, you will receive a confirmation of the Deal and your credit card will be charged for the amount of the Deal. A gift certificate which can be redeemed for goods and services at the Merchant issuing the Deal (a “Voucher”) will then be sent to you by mail or available to you electronically.
Bell Media’s receipt of an order does not automatically result in its acceptance or signify that Bell Media has committed to selling you the Deal in question.

Subject to applicable law, the Merchant is responsible for providing the goods or services you purchase on the Site and not Bell Media, which acts as an intermediary and not as a seller. Although Bell Media is not legally obligated to refund in the event that the Merchant refuses to honor the gift certificate in accordance with conditions specified therein or in the event that the Merchant ceases operations (including in particular in bankruptcy), Bell Media may decide, in its sole and absolute discretion, to compensate you, to offer its customers the best possible service. In such cases, a refund will only be possible in the first year after the purchase date of the gift certificate on the Site and you must necessarily send Bell Media (i) Original Gift Certificate, (ii) email purchase confirmation including the unique transaction number and (iii) a brief explanation of the facts explaining the refund request including the date of the original transaction at the following address: Shopico, 87 rue Ontario Ouest, Montréal (Québec) H2X 1Y8. Bell Media will consider your request and will respond as soon as possible. Or you can write us at [email protected] for more information.
Merchant is the issuer of the Voucher and, as such, is fully responsible for any and all injuries, illnesses, damages, claims, liabilities and costs suffered by or in respect of a customer, caused in whole or in part by the Merchant or its products and services, as well as for any unclaimed property liability arising from unredeemed or partially redeemed Vouchers.
