Terms and Conditions

Welcome to Great Northern Equipment Distributing (“GNE”). The www.gnedi.com website is referred to as the "GNE Site." Your use of the GNE Site, related GNE services, and GNE products constitutes your agreement and acceptance without modification of the notices, terms and conditions set forth herein (the "Terms"). You also accept the Terms when you create an account, make a purchase as a guest, or log in to the GNE Site. Additional or separate terms may apply to your interactions with other related websites, locations, and to your use of individual services or features available on a GNE Site, such as reviews. To the extent that the provisions of any additional terms conflict with these Terms, the provisions of these Terms will govern. References to "Great Northern Equipment," "Great Northern Equipment Distributing," “GNEDI,” "GNE," "our," "we," or "us" shall refer to Great Northern Equipment Distributing, Inc., and its affiliates, subsidiaries, agents, and designees. References to "you," or "your" shall refer to any user accessing viewing, or otherwise interacting with any GNE Site(s). We may make changes to the GNE Site and the Terms. It is your responsibility to review the Terms for updates or changes. If you do not agree with the Terms, you should not use the GNE Sites.


Use of the GNE Site

You may use the GNE Site for your personal, non-commercial use only. You may not use the GNE Site if you are under the age of 13. If you are between the ages of 13 and 18, you may use the GNE Site only with the supervision or involvement of a parent or guardian.


Information on Our Site

We try to be as accurate as possible with the information we present on the GNE Site. We will make reasonable efforts to accurately display the attributes of the products we sell. We do not warrant that product descriptions or other content is accurate, complete, or error free. Product prices offered on the GNE Site may vary from other advertised prices due to varying conditions in different geographic markets. Prices and promotions are subject to change. We cannot confirm the availability or price of an item until you place your order. Despite our best efforts, sometimes an item on the GNE Site may not be available, the offer may have been misstated, or an item may be mispriced. For any of these reasons, we may cancel your order or we may contact you for instructions on the order. The prices displayed on the GNE Sites are quoted in U.S. dollars and are valid and effective only within the United States, and such prices do not include shipping and handling or sales taxes, if applicable, which will be added to your total invoice price. You are responsible for the payment of any shipping handling costs.


Paying for Your Order

Generally, we'll charge your payment method for an item when we ship the item to you or once we confirm its availability. However, we may preauthorize your order amount with your credit card, credit account, or debit card issuer at the time you place the order, which may have an effect on your available credit line. When you pre-order with a debit card, we'll debit your card when you place the pre-order. For special delivery items, we'll charge your payment method when you confirm a delivery time.


Order Confirmation

While we will use our best efforts to fulfill all orders, GNE cannot guarantee the availability of any particular product displayed on the GNE Site. Our order confirmation to you does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. At any time after receipt of your order, we may accept, decline, or place quantity or other limits on your order for any reason. We may impose these limits on a per-person, per-order, or any other basis. If we reject, limit, or otherwise modify your order, we will attempt to promptly notify you using the email address you provide to us. If we cancel an order or part of an order that we've already charged you for, we'll refund you the full amount of the canceled portion of the order. We reserve the right to discontinue the sale of any product listed on the GNE Sites at any time without notice.
