Terms of Sales

last updated: January 27, 2021

The École branchée is a non-profit organization independent of the school network. We strive to keep the costs of our products and services as accessible as possible while wishing to perpetuate them in order to continue to accomplish our mission of supporting actors in the school environment. Here are our conditions of sale and refund policies.

Payment required at all times: All product orders are shipped / activated following full payment.

Selling price : The prices of our products, services and subscriptions are subject to change without notice.

Replacement of an issue of the magazine: You did not receive your printed magazine, but you have successfully subscribed? We accept 1 copy replacement per year of subscription. Always check whether the address you have provided is correct: we recommend that you include the name of a contact person rather than just the name of the school, for example.

Refund policy:

  • Magazine subscription : In the event of a cancellation request, a charge corresponding to the unit cost plus shipping and taxes for each number received will be deducted from your balance. The remainder, if any, will be refunded to you.
  • Magazine issues acquired individually: No number sold individually can be refunded.
  • CréaCamp : Places for a CréaCamp training, face-to-face or virtual, all formats (excluding “tailor-made”), can be reimbursed up to 5 working days before it is held.

  • CréaCamp made to measure:
    • In the event of cancellation by the customer: At least 7 days in advance, 50 % charges are chargeable. After this period, the training will be billed at 100 % since our team will have blocked its availability for you.
    • Need to change the theme or date (subject to availability)? : At least 7 days in advance: a modification fee of 25 % applies. After this time: a modification fee of 50 % applies.
    • You will not be charged any fees if the cancellation is due to our inability to meet your training needs.

  2. I would like to get an invoice for (...)
  3. Can I send you an order form?
  4. Why do you require full payment before an order is processed?
  5. Why is my payment via PayPal not working?
  6. Can bookstores / subscription agencies get a special rate?

Question 1: When will I receive my first issue of the magazine?

There are 3 publications in the year: autumn (September), winter (December) and spring (April). The date of your order will determine the start number of your subscription: the digital format subscription begins with the current number, while the printed format subscription will begin on the next publication (see the General Conditions above). On the other hand, shipping is only after full payment, as soon as the first issue concerned becomes available. You can also get old numbers through our Online Store.

Question 2: I would like to get an invoice for (...)

No problem! You must first go through our online store. Add the desired subscription and / or number (s) to your “basket”, then choose the payment method “By check” (in Canada only). You will then automatically obtain an invoice to settle, numbered, addressed and everything you need, with a copy by email! The subscription or the sending of the order will be made upon receipt of payment only.

Question 3: Can I send you an order form?

We unfortunately do not accept purchase orders due to our limited human resources. However, if your establishment requires it, issue your order form, then use our Online Store to make your order. When entering your billing details, you will see an “Order Notes” box in which you can enter the purchase order number. In this way, you will produce your invoice yourself (you will receive a copy by email, including the associated purchase order number), which you can forward according to the usual procedure for payment.

Question 4: Why do you require full payment before an order is processed?

The École branchée team having very limited human resources, we must make their task as easy as possible. We thank you for your understanding!

Question 5: Why is my PayPal payment not working?

This is a question we also ask ourselves every day! No, seriously, sometimes PayPal's security mechanisms require that your billing address match the details of the PayPal account you are using. In short, we unfortunately cannot intervene for you in this case. We therefore recommend that you use the credit card payment option.

Question 6: Can bookstores / subscription agencies get a special rate? 

Unfortunately no.

- Please use our Online Store. (Payment by credit card, PayPal or check).
- Orders must be paid in full before shipping.
- No additional discounts are granted to bookstores. The regular discount of 15 % for 5 or more copies of the magazine sent to the same address, however, applies at all times.
