Terms and Policies

Hawkes Learning/Quant Systems, Inc. (HL/QS) is the sole vendor of the HL/QS software. All HL/QS software must be purchased directly through any of these methods:

HL/QS reserves the right to review all orders at which point we may accept or decline any order for any reason. All orders will be reviewed for pre-approval and acceptance. Cancellations can be made on any order that has NOT shipped.

Payment terms are Net 30 days. Accounts with invoices that do not clear within 120 days will be put on a "prepay only" basis.

HL/QS software is a licensed product. Once the software license number has been registered, it can only be used by the registered owner.

All exchanges and returns require a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number. An RMA number may be requested within 12 months of the invoice date, and only if the invoice has been paid in full.

General Returns:
  • The only time it is necessary to return a product is if you are using either: (i) a software and textbook "bundled" package containing a textbook that is going into a new edition; (ii) a textbook alone (not "bundled" with software) that is going into a new edition.
  • It is NOT necessary to return software only. Access Codes never expire and can be used in the following semester/year.
    • All items must be returned in "as new" condition in the original packaging. No refund or credit will be given for items returned opened or missing contents.
  • Our return policy states that bookstores may return up to 50% per line item of an order and receive full credit. The remaining portion of an order may be returned for 50% credit. For example, on an order of 200 units of a product, if 130 units are returned, 100 will be credited at full credit and 30 units will be credited at half credit. Shipping charges are non-refundable and only unopened items can be returned. Returns must be received within one year of invoice date.

Items Damaged in Transit

Shipping and handling charges are applied to all orders upon shipment. HL/QS does not ship U.S. mail, therefore we are unable to deliver to PO, APO, and FPO box addresses. HL/QS will choose the most economical shipping method unless otherwise instructed by the customer.
