We collect information from all our ordering customers, whether the order is placed online, over the telephone, via e-mail, or in any other way. We may ask you for your name, e-mail, company name, mailing address, shipping address, phone number, credit card or other payment details, and anything else we deem necessary in providing you with exceptional customer service. We also collect information about gift recipients, so we can fulfill the gift purchase. We do not ask or require any visitor to create an account in order to have full access to our Web site, products, and other online information.

  • Serve you better with any customer service requests you have
  • Promptly handle your order, shipping, and delivery needs
  • Quickly process all your payment transactions
  • Personalize the shopping and Web site experience, delivering you relevant content and product offerings that may interest you the most
  • Administer a contest, promotion, survey, or other site feature
  • Send you e-mails or other communications

We give you the opportunity to opt-out, remove, or modify information to change how we interact with you.

 

How do we protect visitor and customer information?

We know how important it is to keep your personal information safe and protected, and we want you to trust us to handle your personal details with the utmost care and concern. We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. When you submit personal information on our Web site, it is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of people who have special access rights to such systems and who are required to keep the information confidential. When you place an order or share your personal information with us, our secure server helps with encryption and confidentiality. All sensitive and payment information you supply is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our databases to be only accessed as above. We train all our employees on the importance of handling our customers' personal information securely and confidentially. In addition, when you place an order over the phone or in person, we use a secure virtual terminal to process your payment. There are many safety features installed that protect your personal information. We do not store credit card or other payment details for future purchases as a way to prevent any fraud that could occur.

 

Do we use "cookies"?

Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site's or service provider's systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. For instance, we use cookies to help us remember and process the items in your shopping cart. They are also used to help us understand your preferences based on previous or current site activity, so that we can offer you a unique Web site experience that matches your shopping habits and interests. We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can continue to improve the design and services we offer in the future to enhance your site experiences. We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business. You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Netscape Navigator, Mozilla Firefox, or Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser's help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you won't have access to many features we provide, and some of our services will not function properly. However, you can still place orders over the telephone by contacting customer service.

 

Do we disclose the information we collect to outside parties?

East Coast Chair & Barstool does not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information, unless we provide you with advance notice, except as described below. The term "outside parties" does not include East Coast Chair & Barstool. It also does not include Web site hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our Web site, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect our or others' rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

 

How can you opt-out, remove, or modify information you have provided to us?

You can contact us via e-mail, call us toll-free at 1-800-986-5352, or send us your opt-out communication in writing to: 966 Perry Highway, Mercer, PA 16137. East Coast Chair & Barstool is required by law to remove or update your contact information and communication preferences within 10 days of receiving your opt-out request.

 

Why do we offer links to take you to third party sites?

In an attempt to provide you with increased value, East Coast Chair & Barstool may include third party links on our site. For instance, we might direct you to a manufacturer's site, one of our previous customer's sites, or a site that shows a customer feedback rating. The information we choose to link to will be well considered before posting and will be relevant or helpful to our visitors. These linked sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these linked sites (including if a specific link does not work).

 

Do we track site traffic and other visitor statistics?

Yes. East Coast Chair & Barstool uses several services to track our site traffic and analyze where visitors come from, where they go, and when they leave our site. We will use these statistics to better improve the user-friendliness of our site and in designing or re-designing the way our visitors see or can access certain information. The information collected through these third-party tracking sites, such as Google Analytics, is subject to those third-party privacy policies, as we cannot say how they may use the information in improving their own products and services.

Terms of Sale

Sales Tax 

Since October 1, 2018, as a result of the South Dakota v. Wayfair Supreme Court case, East Coast Chair & Barstool will automatically add sales tax to your order if a state requires us to remit sales tax. Tax rates vary across states and municipalities, so we will charge you the applicable sales tax depending on your location.

If you are located in a state that does not require us to charge sales tax, then we will not add it to your order. However, any states require that their residents file a sales and use tax return for purchases made online, including from this site. We encourage you to consult your state and local tax laws to determine compliance and appropriate reporting with tax laws and regulations in your area.

Some manufacturers do require us to charge sales tax depending on the state/county/city in which the order is being placed. This is not an added charge by East Coast Chair & Barstool, but it is rather a requirement of our manufacturers depending on where they have physical locations. Based on the shipping location, your purchase could be affected. We will try our best to include accurate listings of such manufacturer sales tax requirements on our site or within manufacturer or product pages, but we cannot guarantee our accuracy.

If you are a tax-exempt organization, we will be happy to process your payment sales tax free, but you will be required to prove your 501(c)3 status and share your federal identification number with us, as well as any form(s) we ask you to submit before we can process your purchase.

For purchases where sales tax is applicable, we use reasonable commercial efforts to calculate and remit the correct amount of sales tax required on each product purchased. However, we do not guarantee the amount presented to you is the correct amount of tax owed.

Depending on changing tax rates and sales tax regulations, we reserve the right to charge sales tax on any order it is required.

 

Pricing/Availability Disclaimer 

Prices and availability of products on our website are subject to change at any time and without notice. We carry many products, and it is possible, despite our best efforts, that some of the prices may be listed incorrectly. Part of our sales process is verifying the accurate price with our customers, but in the event that there is an inaccuracy, we will take swift action to resolve the problem. When the product price is lower than the listed price, we will charge the lower price and ship the product as scheduled. If a product's price is higher than the listed price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you to arrange a greater payment before shipping your product or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation. We are under no obligation to provide you the product at an incorrect price. In addition, manufacturers may increase their costs to us without notice, and we may not realize a price increase has occurred. Errors will be corrected when they are discovered. Because our pricing strategy is to offer low prices to our customers, we will always price our products fairly and reasonably, and that is how we will approach any pricing discrepancies, as well. Pricing errors can occasionally occur at checkout due to computer or technical errors. We are not responsible for these pricing errors and will notify the buyer immediately upon finding these errors.

On occasion, you may be able to place a product in your shopping cart and submit your order for processing, but that order is cancelled due to unavailability of the product. Likewise, when placing an order over the phone, our sales consultants use the resources at hand to check inventory levels of our manufacturers' warehouses, but later, we may discover that the item(s) is no longer in stock. Products may sell quickly, and there may be a short period of time after an order is placed in which the product becomes unavailable. On very rare occasions, you may receive a shipping confirmation from us, but the product is no longer available in our or the manufacturer's inventory. You agree that we may revoke our acceptance and cancel your order for a full refund without penalty if we are unable to ship the product you ordered due to unavailability.

 

Quick Ship Disclaimer 

East Coast Chair & Barstool does its best to advertise "quick ship" options of products that it or one of its vendors typically keeps in stock in most sizes, standard colors, and reasonable quantities. However, this does not guarantee that a product will be in inventory when your order is placed. All items are subject to prior sale, and manufacturing schedules, container shipments, and our current sales volumes may affect both inventory levels and lead times. While we strive to ship our in-stock items quickly, lead times may vary. Please call to verify stock conditions and lead times before ordering, especially if delivery times are critical to your purchase decision.

 

Warranty

Warranties vary by manufacturer and product. The majority of the products we carry are backed by original manufacturer's standard warranties. Any products being claimed as originally damaged or defective are subject to the manufacturer's repair and/or replacement policy. As the warranty lifetime, coverage, and details differ by item and by manufacturer, please reference the item description of the item you purchased or the manufacturer's website for more details. You may also call us at 1-800-9896-5352 to clarify warranty details. The lifetime of the warranty begins from the date of purchase. Warranties are only valid for the original purchaser and cannot be transferred. The warranty becomes null and void if the purchaser re-upholsters, paints, stains, or otherwise alters the original purchase condition of the item(s) as well as in the event of damages from abuse or misuse, accident carelessness, improper installation, repair, alteration or modification of the product, weather, fire, flood, "acts of God", improper storage/use, deterioration from excessive wear or exposure, fabric soiling, intentional damage, vandalism, neglect or misuse for its designated purpose, normal wear and tear. We will, at our discretion, replace or repair the item(s) or otherwise mutually agree to settle the warranty claim after appropriate analysis.

Please remember that certain use of the product will affect its warranty. Indoor items that carry a warranty are only warranted under indoor use, and outdoor items are only warranted under outdoor use. Also, many items have parts that wear out more easily, such as the swivels in our bar stools, and those wear items may not be covered under warranty. Please be careful when assembling your products, because we cannot guarantee an item if it was misassembled or damaged during assembly. When you purchase an item, please ask what maintenance you will need to perform to that item in order to guarantee the warranty offered on your new product(s), because we ask that you properly clean and maintain any items you purchase from us based on the manufacturer's recommendation. In addition, while we allow orders for residential use, please check with us to find out if residential use changes the commercial warranty as posted on this site, which is designed for commercial purchases.

This warranty information does not apply to products that arrive damaged; please view our shipping and return policies for more details.

If you feel that one of the products you purchased from us is defective or damaged and should be covered under warranty or replaced, please take photos of the item and email us at service@ecchairandbarstool.com with the details of your claim and the photos that demonstrate your concern. For further clarification or to report a warranty claim, please call us toll-free at 1-800-986-5352. Once we review your claim, we will, at our discretion, replace or repair the item at no cost to the customer, or otherwise settle the warranty claim on a case-by-case analysis.

East Coast Chair & Barstool's liability is limited to the purchase price of the products sold, and we will not be liable for injury, loss, or damage arising from the purchaser's care or neglect. In no instance shall East Coast Chair & Barstool's liability under warranty exceed the value of the warranted item or items.

Please Note: Not all items are guaranteed under warranty.

Product Care and Maintenance

Product should be inspected on a regular basis for loose screws, glides, cracked or broken welds, cracked laminate, or any other irregularities. To maintain the quality of your furniture, please follow a few guidelines.

  • Visually inspect the product daily
  • Routine cleaning is more effective than heavy-duty maintenance
  • Take out of service any product showing signs of structural failure or abuse

Pay particular attention to the following:

  • Loose or damaged joints
  • Loose or wobbly legs
  • Loose or missing hardware
  • Protruding nails, screws, or fasteners
  • Missing or worn out gliders or casters
  • Loose, cracked, or otherwise damaged components

For more details on our product care and maintenance, visit our blogs regarding indoor and outdoor product maintenance. 

 

Closeout Product Disclaimer

At times, we offer products at extremely low closeout prices. Products go on closeout for a variety of reasons, but all products that are listed as closeout are items which we will not be restocking into our inventory, so once they are gone, they are gone! We unfortunately cannot offer a warranty with any of our closeout items, and all items being closed out are sold "as is." All closeout sales are final. If you have any questions, please ask your customer care specialist for further details.

 

Color/Fabric Disclaimer

When possible, all photos on our website have been color matched with the actual product. Many long hours were spent trying to accurately portray our fabric colors, wood stains, and other finishes. But as a result of photographic or computer inaccuracies, some color matches cannot be properly visualized. Regard any color printout as merely a color estimate rather than a true color match. Please note, viewing a color sample on two different monitors can show variance. Please contact us via email at or call customer service at 1-800-986-5352 if you would like to receive a fabric swatch and/or wood or other product sample. When available, we would be happy to send you an actual color sample before you make your final purchase decision. You recognize that wood stains will vary depending on the wood color, grain, and texture. Because some variation in color is unavoidable, you waive the claim to any dissatisfaction due to color, stains, and textures upon placing an order with us.

 

Image/Photograph Disclaimer

Most of the photos are exact images of the products and matched by item number. However, in some circumstances we are unable to photograph the exact item. Photos are meant to serve as representative images and may or may not be identical matches to the item numbers you are referencing. When we cannot photograph the exact item, we reserve the right to place a representative image with very similar product details in place of an actual photograph. If you are concerned about a feature of a photograph and how it matches to a product/item you are considering for purchase, please email us at or call customer service at 1-800-986-5352 and we can clarify all the product features and specifications.

 

Custom Built Product Disclaimer

East Coast Chair & Barstool aims to offer our customers exactly what they want! Sometimes, we can offer a custom built or made-to-order product. By verifying all the specifications, colors, and product details in advance of a product build, there is an unlikely chance all your expectations will not be met. Each customer's satisfaction is important to us, which is why we offer custom built products when applicable. Orders that are custom built or made-to-order will be charged when the order is received by us and are non-refundable. The order must be paid in full before production can begin, and you may be asked to sign a sales receipt or other contract verifying the order.

It is assumed that you have read and understood our policies before you place an order.

 

Parts & Replacements

Whether your shipment is missing some hardware or it's just that time to replace a swivel or some floor glides, we recognize you may need assistance with product pieces and therefore, we have staff dedicated to serving you in a Parts & Replacements Department. Please email your concerns or needs directly to them at service@ecchairandbarstool.com. If it is an urgent matter, please state that in your email and include a phone number where you can be reached. Staff read and reply to emails during regular business hours, Monday thru Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern standard time. For expedited service, please include any photographs of product damage you need addressed in your initial email.

It is assumed that you have read and understood our policies before you place an order.
