Services offered

Tireland offers the website users a platform through which users can buy tires and other services for their vehicle along with the possibility to make an appointment with Tireland-affiliated dealers, who offer various products and services directly on the platform.

Tireland will never own or be in possession of the products purchased by the user.

Products

The products sold on the website are not manufactured by Tireland, its subsidiaries, affiliated entities or dealers.

These third-party manufacturers are solely responsible for any manufacturing defects in the products they manufacture.

Price

Prices displayed for the purchase of products or services are subject to changes without notice. The displayed prices are only confirmed when the buyer actually places his order.

Prices, rebates, incentives and other benefits are indicated and provided directly by dealers or manufacturers, who are thus solely responsible for ensuring their accuracy and performance.

Any problem or contradiction on the user’s invoice, between the displayed price and the price paid for the products and services purchased must be sent directly to the dealer with whom the contract was made.

Prices displayed do not include applicable, environmental, provincial and federal taxes.

Deposit

The conclusion of a contract between the user and the dealer is conditional on a deposit by the user. Tireland, for and on behalf of the dealer, takes the deposit from the user – Tireland being legally mandated by the dealer to receive the deposit from and on his behalf.

The deposit taken on the website is taken from a credit card belonging to the user, via a secure online payment system.

In the event of resolution or cancellation of the contract prior to execution of the services and delivery of the products, the user must contact the Tireland customer service to obtain the refund or the deposit chargeback. In all other cases of resolution or cancellation, the user must contact the dealer directly for any refund.

Description of products and services

Tireland does not guaranty that the description of the products and services is accurate, reliable, complete, and that the products themselves correspond to the needs of the user.

Exemption from liability / Disclaimer

Only the dealer is responsible for the products and services sold and the user waives any lawsuit against Tireland regarding the quality of the products or services rendered. Only the manufacturers of the products are responsible for any manufacturing defect or design of the products sold.

Except in the case of gross negligence or wilful misconduct, Tireland is not responsible for any property damage or other loss of any kind, arising from the use of the products and services sold.

The usage, quality and effectiveness of products and services may be affected or influenced by factors such as geography, time, weather conditions, temperature, age or condition of the vehicle and driving skills of the user. It is the responsibility of the user to consult retailers, Tireland representatives, dealer representatives or any other appropriate professional for further information and features on products and services prior to any online purchase.

Tireland is not responsible for any delay in the execution of the services, in the delivery of the purchased products or for any unavailability of a particular product at any given time. Tireland is also not responsible for any damage otherwise caused by any delay in the contract enforcement.
