Welcome

Welcome to the Grainger.com website and mobile application owned and operated by W.W. Grainger, Inc. (“Grainger,” “we” or “us”). The Grainger.com website and mobile application, together with the content, software, services, and functionality offered on or through the website and mobile application, are collectively referred to as the “Grainger Property” in these Terms of Access.

The Grainger Property offers industrial supplies and safety products to help keep your business running. We make the Grainger Property available to you subject to your agreement to these Terms of Access. The purchase of products and services available through the Grainger Property is subject to additional terms and policies. You should review those terms and policies before making a purchase. These Terms of Access (including all documents, policies, conditions and notices) referenced in these Terms of Access) are collectively referred to as the “Agreement.” In this Agreement, the words “include” and “including” will not be construed as terms of limitation.

The Agreement is a legally binding contract between you and Grainger. By accessing the Grainger Property in any way, including, without limitation, browsing the Grainger Property, using any information contained on or in the Grainger Property, creating a User Account (defined below), and/or submitting information to Grainger, you agree to and are bound by this Agreement, including, but not limited to, conducting transactions electronically, disclaimers of warranties, damage and remedy exclusions and limitations, and a choice of Illinois law.

Our collection and use of personal information in connection with your access to and use of the Grainger Property, whether or not you are a registered user, is described in our Privacy Policy

1. Updates to the Agreement

From time to time, Grainger may update the Agreement. If we materially update any portion of the Agreement, we will notify you by posting a revised Agreement through the mobile app or a notice on our website before the date the update becomes effective. We will also post the updated Agreement in its original location marked with the new date. Changes will not be retroactive. If you object to any changes, you should not access or use the Grainger Property. Your continued access or use of the Grainger Property after we publish our changes to the Agreement means that you are consenting to the updated terms.

By accessing or linking to the Grainger Property, you assume the risk that the information on the Grainger Property may be incomplete, inaccurate, or out of date, or may not meet your needs and requirements. Grainger may add, change, discontinue, remove or suspend any of the information, features and other content included in the Grainger Property at any time, without notice and without liability. Due to the open nature of the Grainger Property, and the potential for errors in the storage and transmission of digital information, Grainger does not warrant the accuracy of information contained on or obtained from the Grainger Property.
