Last Modified: May 27, 2019

Acceptance of the Terms of Sale

These Terms of Sale are entered into by and between you and National Restaurant Association Solutions, LLC ("Company", "we" or "us"), the operator of the ServSafe™ training programs, products and professional certifications.  The following terms and conditions, together with any documents they expressly incorporate by reference (collectively, these "Terms of Sale"), govern the purchase and sale of products and services from us.

By placing an order for such products and/or services, you agree to be bound by and accept these Terms of Sale.  If you do not agree to these Terms of Sale, you should not obtain products or services from us.  These Terms of Sale are subject to change by us without prior written notice at any time, in our sole discretion. The latest version of the Terms of Sale will be posted on this website, and you should review these Terms of Sale prior to purchasing any product or service from us.  These Terms of Sale are an integral part of our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy that apply generally to the use of our website, which you should carefully review before placing an order for goods or services through this website.

Order Acceptance

Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell.  We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept, decline, or limit your order for any reason.

We make every effort to maintain the availability of our website.  However, should we experience technical difficulties, we are not responsible for orders that are not processed or accepted.

Payment Terms and Sales Taxes

Terms of payment are within our sole discretion and, unless otherwise agreed by us in writing, payment must be received by us prior to our acceptance of an order.  We accept VISA, MasterCard, American Express, Diner, and Discover credit cards for all purchases.  You represent and warrant that: (i) the credit card information you supply to us is true, correct and complete; (ii) charges incurred by you will be honored by your credit card company; and (iii) you will pay charges incurred by you at the posted prices, including all applicable taxes, if any.

Changes in Products and Pricing

We are constantly updating and revising our offerings of products and services, and we may discontinue products and services at any time without notice.  To the extent that we provide information on availability of products or services, you should not rely on such information, and we will not be liable for any lack of availability of products or services.

All pricing for the products and services is subject to change.  For all of our prices and products, we reserve the right to make adjustments due to changing market conditions, product discontinuation, manufacturer price changes, errors in advertisements and other extenuating circumstances.

Return Policy

Please examine the material you have received promptly upon receipt as all purchases are subject to the return policy, including any deadlines, set forth below. If for any reason you are dissatisfied with your order, please call our Service Center for a Return Authorization Number specific to your material before products are returned -

Monday - Friday, 8:00am - 6:30pm CST
800-765-2122 ext. 6703 (Chicago) 312-715-1010, ext. 6703

Your Return Authorization Number must be displayed on the outside of all return packages containing merchandise returned for full credit or exchange, and damaged goods returned for replacement.

Please note the following deadlines and conditions for returns:

  • Online Products: All purchases of online products, including but not limited to online courses and online exams are final, nonrefundable, and nonreturnable. Online Courses expire after one year from the date of purchase or 60 to 90 days from date of launch/course completion, depending on which course is purchased.
  • Custom Material: Custom materials are not returnable.
  • Return Promptly: Products that are not online products or custom materials may be returned within 30 days from the date of invoice.
  • Condition of Items: All returned products must be in original and resalable condition. All CD's and videos must be returned unopened. If returned products are damaged in any manner, they will be returned to the customer at the customer's expense without an issued credit.
  • Packing Returns: A copy of the original invoice or packing slip must be included in the first box of a return, and your Return Authorization Number must be displayed on the outside of each box. If you have multiple boxes to return, please mark boxes accordingly (e.g., 1 of 4, 2 of 4). If other unrelated shipping labels are on the box, please remove or mark them out. Please ship the return in its original packaging, if possible, as this will allow your return to be processed properly. We do not credit for shipping cost.
  • Use the Correct Address: Any products returned to an address other than that provided by the Service Center will cause your credit to be delayed and will result in a $25.00 processing fee being charged to your account. Returns to our business address or lockbox address are not permitted.
  • Traceable Shipments: For your own protection, please return product by traceable means (e.g., Federal Express, UPS, RPS, or Insured/Certified First Class Mail). Unfortunately, if we cannot trace a package sent to our warehouse, we will not be able to issue a credit.
  • Call-tags: Call-tags will be issued only if we commit a fulfillment error. No other call-tags will be placed.
  • Questions? If you have any questions or concerns regarding our product return policy, please contact the Service Center.
