Basic Order Terms: All orders must include the following information: (i) which and how many Joan devices you would like, (ii) prices, and (iii) delivery instructions, (collectively, the “Basic Order Terms”).

We can cancel or indefinitely suspend an accepted order, and refuse additional orders if: (i) you don’t do what you’re supposed to do according to these Terms, (ii) you stop doing business or enter into any bankruptcy, insolvency, receivership or similar proceeding that lasts more than 30 days, or assign your assets for the benefit of creditors, or (iii) if third-party financing in connection with your Joan devices purchase(s) aren’t fast enough for us.
