- You acknowledge that all present and future copyright and other intellectual property rights subsisting in, or used in connection with, the products, the Website or any part of it (the "Rights"), including the manner in which the Website is presented or appears and all information and documentation relating to it is our property (or that of our licensors), and nothing in these Terms shall be taken to transfer any of the Rights to you.

III. REGISTERING FOR A PERSONAL ACCOUNT
- After registering for a personal account, you will automatically be sent an email that your account has been created. Your email address will act as the user ID for your account. During the registration process, you will be asked to create your own password. You will be given the opportunity to change the password when you log in to your account. You must keep your user ID and password confidential at all times, and not make them available to any other person. You agree to comply with all security directions and/or recommendations given by us and inform us immediately if you become aware of or suspect any unauthorized use of your account or if your account becomes available to an unauthorized person.
- Without prejudice to our other rights and remedies we may suspend your access to the Website without liability if, in our reasonable opinion, such action is necessary to safeguard the Website. You will be responsible for any misuse of your user ID and password, including the placing of any order.
IV. OUR CONTRACT
- Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy the products you select from the Website. All orders are subject to availability and will not constitute a binding contract of sale until accepted by us. As soon as this offer is accepted by us by sending an Order Processing Email (as specified below), your order forms a binding contract of sale between you and us as further set out at clause 5 below.
- Purchases made on the website must be for your personal or gift use and are not to be used for resale, commercial purposes or any other commercial benefit. We reserve the right to refuse orders for multiple quantities of an item ordered by you or ordered to any one postal address.
- The Website only sells products to individuals who can purchase with a credit card or other method(s) of payment as set out on the payment page.
- The images of the products on our Website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device's display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images.
V. THE ORDER PROCESS
- You may select items from our range of products, the details of which will be added to the "Shopping Bag" by clicking on the 'Add to Shopping Bag' button. By clicking on the 'Proceed to Checkout' button, you initiate the checkout process for the products added to the Shopping Bag. By clicking on the 'Pay now' button you submit an offer to buy the products in the Shopping Bag and agree to pay for those items. Before placing an order, you can view and amend your order details at any time by clicking on the 'Shopping Bag & Checkout' button.
- When you place your order to purchase products from the Website, we will automatically send you an email confirming receipt of your order and containing the details of your order (the "Order Confirmation Email"). We recommend that you print out the Order Confirmation Email and keep it for your own records. The Confirmation Email does not constitute our acceptance of your order; it merely records the fact that we have received the order.
- We will send you a second email when we dispatch your products which shall constitute our acceptance of your order (the "Order Processing Email"), at which point a binding contract of sale will be concluded between you and us.
- Any products in the same order which we have not confirmed in an Order Processing Email do not form part of that contract. If for any reason the products ordered by you are not available at the time you placed your order, we will notify you of this by email. Our acceptance of your order in the Order Processing Email is limited to the products that are available - no contract of sale will be concluded in respect of products that are not available. We will retain the title in the products until full payment has been received by us.
VI. AVAILABILITY OF PRODUCTS AND DELIVERY TIME
- We strive to ensure that all items on the website are available upon request. However, there may be instances where items will be out of stock. In cases such as this, we shall deliver the available items in your sales order. Please note that if the original order was pre-paid, a refund will be in place for the out of stock items.
- We will notify you of the estimated delivery time for your products in the Order Confirmation Email. This estimated delivery date will usually be within three to five business days in Metro Manila and up to 10 days for provincial orders (i.e. Excluding Saturday, Sunday and public holidays in the Republic of the Philippines) from the date of the Order Confirmation Email. It may take slightly longer to deliver products to very remote areas. We will endeavour to deliver all products you have ordered within the estimated delivery time (as specified on your Order Confirmation Email), but these delivery dates are estimates only. Dispatch dates are not guaranteed and should not be relied upon.
- In the event that we become aware that we are unable to meet the original estimated delivery time stated in the Order Confirmation Email, we will notify you of this as soon as possible and without us being liable to you we will specify a new estimated delivery time.
- If your order has not been received within our specified timescales, you may contact us through email at email@example.com, to check the status of your order. All delivery timescales are subject to delays caused by seasonal or busy periods, weather and other unforeseen circumstances, though we will do everything we reasonably can to get your order to you on time. Please understand that during exceptionally busy periods (e.g. Christmas), or when the weather is particularly inclement, we and/ or our couriers might need additional time to process and deliver your order. Please note that the delivery company may require a signature on delivery and will not leave products without a signature. Orders can be delivered to a place of work, which is usually easier and avoids the disappointment and delay of products being returned to us as undelivered by the courier.
- Orders may be placed from anywhere in the world, provided that the delivery address is within the Philippines.
- Your order will be sent to the delivery address that you have given on your order form. We are not responsible if the given delivery address is incorrect or incomplete. Our couriers will make two delivery attempts, and we will notify you by email prior to delivery.
VII. PRICES AND DELIVERY CHARGES
- All of the prices listed on the Website include the currently applicable statutory value-added tax.
- The prices shown on the Website are stated in Philippine pesos and exclude delivery charges.
- Shipping fee is calculated based on its actual, or dimensional weight, whichever is higher. It is also dependent on the delivery location.

For cash on delivery orders, please prepare the exact payment amount for our courier partners’ pick-up upon delivery of your ordered items to you. Your order will not be released to you or your authorized representative until our courier partners’ representative has acquired the cash payment during delivery.
- You confirm that the credit card being used is not stolen, simulated, or a fraudulent account. All credit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorization by the card issuer. If the issuer of your card refuses to authorize payment, we will not accept your order and we will not be responsible for any delay or non-delivery and we are not obliged to inform you of the reason for the refusal. You may contact your issuing bank for more information. For cash on delivery orders, you promise to make sure that the exact amount of payment (inclusive of shipping and other applicable charges which we will inform you in advance if any, and subject to your prior approval) is ready and available for pick up upon delivery of your order to your stated delivery address.
