Terms & Condition of  Sale

 

Please read these Terms and Conditions of Sale carefully before pressing the [“Complete Order”] button.

These Terms and Conditions of Sale (“T&C”) set out the general conditions of sale applicable to the contract concluded between TEX MB, with registered office at Rua de Pedrouços, No 27, 11 D. 1400-285 Lisbon, VAT No 243856733 (hereinafter “TEX MB”) and you when you purchase products on the TEX MB Online Shop (“User”). Validation of your purchase order implies acceptance of these T&C, which the User declares to have read and expressly accepted. By accepting these T&C, the User also declares that he/she is over 18 years of age.

 

Regardless of any formal acceptance, by using the Online Store, the User accepts and agrees to the T&C defined here, to which he agrees to be bound.

 

The terms of processing available here apply to the processing of personal data by TEX MB.

 

TEX MB reserves the right, at any time, without prior notice and with immediate effect, to change, add, update or delete, partially or totally, these T&C and the User must therefore consult them periodically and before validating his/her order.

 

  1. Acceptance

    The present T&C, in their updated and current version, establish the rules applicable to the TEX MB Online Store (“Store”) available here, as well as to the purchase, payment, shipping and return of TEX MB products.

  • When using the Store, the User must
    • Access the Store;
    • Read and accept the present T&C;
    • Read and accept the Privacy Policy;
    • Read and accept the Terms of Use of the TEX MB Website.
    • The present T&C apply to all Users, regardless of their nationality or place of residence.
    • The Store is available to all Users of legal age. By validating your purchase order, you declare that you are over 18 years old.

 

  1. Products
  • The essential characteristics of the products are accessible at the time of order and can be consulted in the Shop.
  • The products available in the Store are described and presented according to their original characteristics. However, the User understands and accepts that TEX MB is a brand of craftsmanship for Decoration, so it is difficult to produce two equal pieces. The use of materials of natural origin such as those illustrated on the Site can easily result in a piece that differs from the one shown in size, color, thickness, weight and texture. Therefore, TEX MB cannot take responsibility or accept an exchange when the reason given by the customer is “the product does not match the reality” or a message with similar content.
  • However, despite the best efforts of TEX MB, the photographs shown may not correspond exactly to the product described (because they are conditioned by the equipment on which they are viewed), and the reproduction of the products is as close as possible to reality.
  • In case of an order of a made-to-measure macramé, the process should be initiated by e-mail or by the customer filling out the corresponding form.
  • Details will be agreed upon in writing, case by case. A quotation will be sent, which the customer may accept or refuse. Upon acceptance, the customer undertakes to pay 50% of the total amount at the time of award. The making of the piece will be accompanied and validated by the customer through photographs sent by e-mail. The remaining amount will be paid on the day immediately before the agreed upon delivery date of the piece. In case of desistance, the value of the award will not be returned. There will be no exchange or return of the made-to-measure macramés.
  • Product descriptions do not constitute any guarantee of conformity or express suitability of a product for a particular purpose.
  • TEX MB does not guarantee that the quality of any products, services, information, or other material purchased or obtained through the Store will meet the User’s expectations.
  • TEX MB reserves the right, but is not obligated, to limit product sales to any person, geographic region or jurisdiction and may exercise this right on a case by case basis.
  • TEX MB reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to limit the quantity or discontinue the products made available, as well as to change the description and offer of products or other information in the Store catalog, including the products, prices, promotions and commercial conditions.
  • Purchases made by the User are subject to the T&C in force on the date the order is placed.
