ORDERS & PAYMENTS
You may place an order with us by completing and submitting the order form on the Site. You shall be responsible for ensuring the accuracy of all orders. All orders will be deemed to be irrevocable and unconditional upon transmission through the Site, and we shall be entitled, but not obliged, to process such order(s) without your further consent and any further reference or notice to you. We reserve the right to accept or decline any and all orders received from or through the Site in our sole and absolute discretion. Our acceptance of your order will take place when a confirmation email together with an assigned order number is sent to your registered email address with us, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us. Each fully-paid order accepted by us shall constitute a separate and individual contract governed by these T&Cs. If we are unable to process your order, we will inform you of this. This might arise because the product is out of stock; because of unexpected limits on our resources for which we could not reasonably plan; because a credit reference we have obtained for you does not meet our minimum requirements; because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product; or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified. The price payable by you for the product shall be the price of the product listed for sale as stated on the Site at the time your order is transmitted to us through the Site. All payments will be processed in South African Rands (ZAR). We reserve the right to amend the price of any product at any time without giving any reason or prior notice. In the event that any Product has been mispriced on the Site, we reserve the right to terminate the order and notify you of such termination, regardless of whether or not the products have been dispatched or are in transit and whether payment has been charged to you.
We do our best to be as accurate as reasonably possible in our descriptions of products available for purchase through the Site. However, our products may vary slightly from their pictures. The images of the products on our Site are for illustrative purposes only. Colours may appear slightly different in reality due to studio lighting conditions, or variances in computer screen calibration. We do not warrant that product descriptions or other content on the Site are accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. Minor variations in measurement (within 1 inch) are not considered a defect. Our jewelry is costume jewelry, which means they will experience oxidation and tarnish due to several factors such as coming into contact with moisture, air and chemicals. Oxidation of our jewelry is inevitable over time and this is a natural occurring process that cannot be considered as a fault in our jewelry.
RETURNS, EXCHANGES AND REFUNDS
All sales are final. However, refunds or exchanges may be considered in certain circumstances. Please see RETURNS.
Returns must be unused, unaltered, undamaged, accompanied with their original packaging and reach us within 21 days from the date of receiving your parcel. Returns that are received in unsatisfactory conditions or lost in the mailing process will be denied and held responsible by the customer. If you return an item that does not meet the requirements set out above, we reserve the right to reject the return and any request for a refund.
The cost of shipping and the estimated delivery time of your order will be displayed to you on our Site at the point of checkout. In the case of any delay in processing your order, we will notify you accordingly and the items will be dispatched once available. The time for delivery shall not be of the essence, and neither we nor our agents shall be liable for any delay in delivery howsoever caused. We are not responsible for unanticipated delays due to bad weather conditions or customs clearance procedures. Any customs duties or taxes that may incur as deemed by your country's legal regulations shall be borne by the customer.
RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE PRODUCT
The product will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the product to the address you specified. You own the Product which is the subject of your order once we have received payment in full for your order.
TERMINATION OF ORDER
We may terminate your order at any time by writing to you if:
You do not make payment to us when it is due;
You do not, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with information necessary for us to ship the product to you (e.g. delivery address);
You do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the product to you.
If we terminate your order in the situations set out above, we will refund any money you have paid in advance for products we have not provided, but we may deduct or charge you reasonable compensation for the nett costs we will incur as a result of your breaking the contract.
Neither these T&Cs nor your use and/or access of the Site creates any joint venture, agency, partnership, or employment relationship between you and BARETHREADS FASHIONS.
