Automatic Sharing of Information
As soon as you connect to LFV’s B2B Site, your computer and LFV’s computer automatically exchange information. No personal information is accessible or exchanged unless you explicitly give this personal information yourself (e.g. name, telephone, address, subject of the request).
Otherwise, the information exchanged is limited to the following data:
- the domain name (e.g.: xcompany.com, if you use a private Internet access account; universite.edu, if your access is through a university; etc.)
- the IP address (e.g. 126.96.36.1990) that could allow an Internet provider to disclose the identity of the person associated with it
- the type of browser (e.g. Netscape, Explorer) and operating system (e.g. Windows, Mac OS) you are using
- the pages you visit
- the date and time you access these pages
- the address of the referring site from which you reached the LFV B2B site
LFV’s B2B Site collects this information because of the technological requirements inherent to Internet browsing: the server needs this information to send you files compatible with the computer equipment you are using.
The information is kept and used by LFV for statistical purposes. It is used to track the number of visits, the pages most frequently visited, the technology used by visitors, referring sites, and the country of origin of users. Under no circumstances are they used to produce or save user lists.
Our security protocol
LFV’s B2B site uses state-of-the-art technology and equipment to ensure the security of its transactional site and the confidentiality of the data exchanged there.
The security protocol used (SSL: Secure Socket Layers) makes it possible to transform the information entered into encrypted and encoded information (at 128 bits) and to verify the identity of the parties involved (the user and the portal) who communicate via the Internet.
Generally speaking, secure pages are identified by the padlock symbol that appears at the bottom of the screen. This symbol ensures that the transmission of information provided by the user is encrypted.
Your Responsibilities as a User
For maximum security, it is recommended:
- to use the most recent version of a browser that meets security requirements (SSL protocol with 128-bit encryption);
- to erase your computer’s cache memory after transmitting your data; and
- to keep your identification data, access code and password confidential (LFV cannot be held responsible for any unauthorized use of them). Should their confidentiality be compromised, please notify us immediately to prevent fraudulent use of your identity.
Opening an Account
To open a new account, please contact us either through a sales consultant or directly by calling our offices. You can also print one of the forms below and return it to us by mail or email. After a satisfactory credit check, an account will be opened with a set credit limit. This limit may be revised based on purchase history and promptness of payment.
Customers who do not wish to open an account may pay for their purchases by credit card for an additional 3%.
Account Opening/Updating (print)
Acceptance of Orders
All orders received by LFV are subject to final acceptance or confirmation by LFV.
LFV reserves the right to withhold any order if an account is more than 60 days past due. Merchandise will be delivered as soon as payment is received.
LFV does not accept COD orders.
Prices and Sales Taxes
All our prices are in Canadian currency and are subject to change with notice due to exchange rate fluctuations, manufacturer price increases or any other circumstance.
When applicable on a product, the Goods and Services Tax (GST) is in effect throughout Canada. There is no provincial sales tax (PST) on shipments outside of Quebec, except in provinces where the harmonized tax (HST) applies.
Methods of Payment
For customers who have opened an account and whose credit terms have been accepted by LFV, payments are due within 30 days of the invoice date. A statement of account will be sent at the end of each month.
In the event that the account opening is not completed, payment must be made by credit card at the time of invoicing when the merchandise is ready to be shipped. Once the payment is made, the merchandise will be shipped immediately.
An interest charge of 1.2% per month will be applied for any balance exceeding 45 days from the date of invoice.
LFV accepts cheques and Visa or MasterCard credit cards.
A $50 fee will be applied for an NSF cheque.
Shipping and Handling
All normal shipping will be done by Nationex, Canada Post, Purolator or UPS. The choice of carrier remains the prerogative of LFV based on transportation costs or destination. A customer’s request to use a particular carrier may result in additional charges if the carrier is more expensive.
Orders received before 3pm EST will be delivered within 72 hours in Quebec and Ontario and normally within 5 business days in other regions of Canada.
LFV is not responsible for delivery delays due, directly or indirectly, to causes beyond its control.
Besides the exceptions listed below, there are no delivery charges for orders over $200. This amount is subject to change with notice.
In the following cases, additional fees requested by the carriers will be charged:
- carrier surcharge for fuel
- remote areas
- volumetric weight (volume corresponding to a weight higher than the actual weight)
- hazardous materials
For any order under $200, the shipping cost is $19.99.
For special orders and items that are not in stock, delivery time usually varies between 6 and 8 weeks. LFV, being dependent on the manufacturer of the product, is not responsible for a longer than expected delivery time.
A 50% non-refundable deposit is required when ordering a specialized product. The balance of the order is due when the equipment is delivered.
Orders for specialized products and non-current items in inventory cannot be cancelled and are not returnable.
Although our warehouses are well stocked, there may be some stockouts. In these exceptional cases, we will inform you the day of your order.
In addition, if the merchandise desired has a value of less than $50, LFV will cancel the order unless the customer specifically requests that the order be kept open. Shipping charges will then be added when shipping these items.
It is also possible to request delivery with a future order. However, orders not delivered after 3 months will be automatically cancelled.
LFV’s B2B website allows you to know immediately if the item is available in stock.
LFV offers customized products service for textiles. Minimum quantity for a personalized colour is 48 items. The initial cost for development is $200. Manufacturing is usually outsourced to a reliable LFV business partner.
