We take your rights, privacy and security very seriously. The information below might sound a bit formal but it's the legal stuff that's necessary to make sure your experience with the website and Monica Eter is as secure and easy to use as possible.
By placing an order on this website, you are agreeing to the following terms and conditions:
Acceptance of terms
Monica Eter's ("Monica Eter" "we" "us" “our”) website(s) (our "Site" or "Sites") and related services are made available to you in accordance with the following Terms & Conditions of use of service, and any other rules posted on our Sites (collectively, the "T&C"). Please read the T&C carefully before placing any orders with us and on www.monicaeter.com. We strongly recommend you keep a copy of the T&C for future reference.
We may update the T&C from time to time (and the documents referred in them). Please read the T&C and check back often. If you do not agree to any change to the T&C then you must immediately stop using www.monicaeter.com. Any changes made after you have placed an order will not affect that order unless we are required to make the change by law.
We aim to brighten our customers and their friends’ days by delivering beautiful handmade natural wax scented goods, in great condition, every time.
Prices quoted on our website are for the price of the item alone and do not include the cost of postage. The cost of postage and carriage is shown separately. All published prices are subject to change at any time without notice. If you are ordering from outside the EU then you may be charged import duty or tax costs which we have no control over. We recommend you contact your local customs office to determine what additional charges may be applicable. If you are a customer whose credit/debit card is not denominated in Sterling the final price will be calculated in accordance with the applicable exchange rate on the day your card issuer processes the transaction.
We accept Visa, MasterCard and any other methods which may be clearly advertised on the Site from time to time. You can also choose to pay with PayPal. When selecting this option at checkout, you will be directed to the PayPal site to 'Log In' and review the amount shown before clicking 'Pay Now'. You confirm that the credit/debit card that is being used is yours or that you have been specifically authorised by the owner of the credit/debit card to use it. All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment to MONICA ETER, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery. If you have any problems placing your order on monicaeter.com please contact email@example.com and we will assist you.
Once you have made your choice and your order has been placed, you will receive an email acknowledging the details of your order.
Once you have made your choice and your order has been placed, you will receive an email acknowledging the details of your order. This email is NOT an acceptance of your order, just a confirmation that we have received it. Unless you cancel your order, acceptance of your order and completion of the contract between you and MONICA ETER will be completed when we email you to confirm the goods have been dispatched. The sale contract is therefore concluded in London, England and the language of the contract is English.
We reserve the right not to accept your order in the event, for example, that we are unable to obtain authorisation for payment, that shipping restrictions apply to a particular item, that the item ordered is out of stock or does not satisfy our high quality control standards and is withdrawn, or that you do not meet the eligibility criteria set out within the T&C. We may also refuse to process and therefore accept a transaction for any reason or refuse service to anyone at any time at our sole discretion. In the event that we make a change or cancel an order, we will notify you by contacting the email and/or billing address/phone number provided at the time the order was made. Additionally, we may limit or prohibit orders that, in our sole judgement, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers, distributors or any other unauthorised party. You are not permitted to resell any products or services purchased through the Site for commercial purposes. If you would like to become an authorised reseller partner please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with a message indicating your intentions and contact details.
We will not be liable to you or any third party by reason of our withdrawing any merchandise from the Site whether or not that merchandise has been sold, removing, screening or editing any materials or content on the Site, refusing to process a transaction or unwinding or suspending any transaction after processing has begun. Whilst every effort is made to make sure details on our website are accurate, we may from time to time discover an error in the pricing of products. If we discover an error in the pricing of a product in your order, we will let you know as soon as possible. We shall be under no obligation to accept or fulfil an order for a product that was advertised at an incorrect price and reserve the right to cancel such an order that has been accepted. If you order a product that is priced incorrectly for any reason, we will email or telephone you to inform you that we have not accepted your order and/or that the relevant part of your order has been cancelled.
If you are unsure of the legitimacies of a Monica Eter product, please contact our customer care team prior to placing your order. They will determine if you are purchasing from an official, approved Monica Eter stockist and if the product is genuine. We take infringement of the Monica Eter brand very seriously and will take legal action against any counterfeiting.
