You will choose the shipping method, carrier, and time-frame of delivery when you checkout, based on real time rates.
International orders will be provided tracking information.

If an order is returned to us and needs to be shipped again, additional charges may be incurred by the customer.
International orders may be subject to import duties and taxes (including VAT), which are incurred once a shipment reaches your destination country. Compass Classroom is not responsible for these charges if they are applied and are your responsibility as the customer.

Compass Classroom therefore reserves the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions (including after an order has been submitted) and to change or update information at any time without prior notice. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. In the event that any merchandise or product offered on this Site is mistakenly listed at an incorrect price, Compass Classroom reserves the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for such products listed at the incorrect price. Compass Classroom reserves the right to refuse or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit card charged. If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is cancelled, Compass Classroom will issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the incorrect price.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, THIS SITE AND ALL CONTENT, MATERIALS, INFORMATION, PRODUCTS AND SERVICES PROVIDED ON THE SITE, ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS, WHERE IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, WITH ALL FAULTS. COMPASS CLASSROOM EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, INTEGRATION, QUIET ENJOYMENT, AND SECURITY AND ACCURACY, AS WELL AS ALL WARRANTIES ARISING BY USAGE OF TRADE, COURSE OF DEALING, OR COURSE OF PERFORMANCE. COMPASS CLASSROOM MAKES NO WARRANTY, AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY OBLIGATION, THAT: (A) THE SITE WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS OR WILL BE AVAILABLE ON AN UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, OR ERROR-FREE BASIS; (B) THE CONTENT WILL BE UP-TO-DATE, COMPLETE, COMPREHENSIVE OR ACCURATE; (C) THE QUALITY OF ANY PRODUCTS, SERVICES, INFORMATION OR OTHER MATERIAL OBTAINED BY YOU THROUGH THE SITE WILL MEET YOUR EXPECTATIONS; OR (D) THAT DEFECTS, IF ANY, WILL BE CORRECTED.
16. Limitation of Liability
IN NO EVENT SHALL COMPASS CLASSROOM OR ITS AFFILLIATES BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, LOSS OF PROFITS, REVENUE, DATA, GOODWILL OR USE, INCURRED BY YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY, WHETHER IN AN ACTION IN CONTRACT OR TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE AND STRICT LIABILITY), ARISING FROM YOUR ACCESS TO OR INABILITY TO ACCESS, OR USE OF, THE SITE OR ANY SERVICES PROVIDED IN CONNECTION WITH THE SITE, OR OTHERWISE RESULTING FROM: (A) THE COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE SERVICES OR GOODS, (B) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR ALTERATION OF YOUR TRANSMISSIONS OR DATA, (C) THE STATEMENTS OR CONDUCT OF ANY THIRD PARTY ON THE SITE, OR (D) ANY OTHER MATTER RELATING TO THE SITE, EVEN IF COMPASS CLASSROOM HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILTY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THIS LIMITATION ON LIABILITY APPLIES TO, BUT IS NOT LIMITED TO, COMMUNICATIONS FAILURE, THEFT, DESTRUCTION, UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO COMPASS CLASSROOM RECORDS OR SERVICES, FAILURE OF MECHANICAL OR ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT, BODILY INJURY, PROPERTY DAMAGE, OPERATOR ERRORS, STRIKES OR ANY FORCE MAJEURE. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THIS PARAGRAPH SHALL APPLY TO ANY AND ALL CONTENT, PRODUCTS AND SERVICES AVAILABLE THROUGH THIS SITE. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW CERTAIN LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSIONS OF LIABILITY IN SOME CIRCUMSTANCES. THEREFORE, SOME OF THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold COMPASS CLASSROOM, its affiliates, shareholders, directors, officers, co-branders, subsidiaries, parents, attorneys, employees and agents, harmless from any claim, demand, liability, dispute, damage, cost, expense, or loss, including attorneys’ fees and costs of litigation, arising out of, or in any way related to your use of or access to this Site, your use of the Content, including any use by your employees, your violation of these Terms or your violation of any rights of another.
18. Limitation on Actions
You agree that any claim or cause of action arising out of your use of this Site or these Terms must be filed within (6) six months after such claim or cause of action arose or it shall forever be barred, notwithstanding any statute of limitations or other law to the contrary. Within this period, any failure by Compass Classroom or its affiliates to enforce or exercise any provision of these Terms or related right shall not constitute a waiver of that right or provision.
19. Dispute Resolution
You agree that any dispute arising out of or relating in any way to your use of this Site or the purchase of merchandise from Compass Classroom through this Site requires that such claim be resolved exclusively by confidential binding arbitration except that, to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate Compass Classroom’s intellectual property rights, Compass Classroom may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief. The arbitration shall be conducted before at least one neutral arbitrator in the city of Nashville, Tennessee, U.S.A., in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as then in effect. No claims of any other parties may be joined or otherwise combined in the arbitration proceeding. Unless otherwise expressly required by applicable law, each party shall bear its own attorneys’ fees without regard to which party is deemed the prevailing party in the arbitration proceeding. Except for punitive and consequential damages (which may not be awarded), and subject to these Terms, the arbitrators shall be authorized to award either party any provisional or equitable remedy permitted by applicable law. The parties shall equally share all AAA charges and fees associated with the arbitration.
BECAUSE THE USE OF THIS SITE REQUIRES THE ARBITRATION OF ANY CLAIMS OR DISPUTES EXISTING BETWEEN THE PARTIES, NEITHER PARTY WILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO PURSUE THAT CLAIM IN COURT OR BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR ANY OTHER COLLECTIVE OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THE ARBITRATORS’ DECISION WILL BE FINAL AND BINDING. OTHER RIGHTS THAT EITHER PARTY WOULD HAVE IF SUCH PARTY WENT TO COURT, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE RIGHT TO CONDUCT DISCOVERY OR TO APPEAL, MAY BE LIMITED OR UNAVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION.
The award of the arbitrators may be enforced in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Each party hereby consents (a) to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the State of Tennessee or to any Federal Court located within the State of Tennessee for any action (i) to compel arbitration, (ii) to enforce any award of the arbitrators, or (iii) at any time prior to the qualification and appointment of the arbitrators, for temporary, interim or provisional equitable remedies, and (b) to service of process in any such action by registered mail or any other means provided by law. Should this Section 17 be deemed invalid or otherwise unenforceable for any reason, it shall be severed. In such event, the parties to these Terms agree that exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any claims will be in state or federal courts in Nashville, Tennessee, and each party hereby waives any defense related to personal jurisdiction, process or venue.
You acknowledge (a) that you have read and understood these Terms; and (b) that these Terms have the same force and effect as a signed agreement.
