Terms & Conditions
1. Use of Services
You may use the Site only if you can legally form a binding contract with Earthmuse, and only in compliance with these Terms and all applicable laws. You may simply browse the Site, or you may register with Earthmuse and create an “Account”. However, you must only provide us with true, accurate, current and complete information for your Account and/or Orders (defined below). If we believe or suspect that your information is not true, accurate, current or complete, we may deny or terminate your access to the Site or Services (or any portion thereof). Any use or access by anyone under the age of 13 is not allowed. If you are under 13 years of age, you agree not to use the Services, Site or any other Earthmuse property. If you are based in the European Economic Area, you may only use the Site if you are over the age at which you can legally provide consent to data processing under the laws of your country. Using the Site may include downloading software to your computer, phone, tablet, or other device. You agree that we may automatically update that software, and these Terms will apply to any updates.
Subject to these Terms and our policies (which we may update from time to time in our sole discretion), we grant you a revocable, limited, non-exclusive and non-transferable license to use our Service. Use of the Site and Services for any commercial purposes is prohibited. If you are interested in purchasing a commercial account, please reach out to us at email@example.com.
If you create an Account, you are required to provide your name and email address and select a password (collectively, your “Account Information”), which you may not transfer to or share with any third parties. If someone accesses our Site or Services using your Account Information, we will rely on that Account Information and will assume that it is really you or your representative who is accessing the Site and Services. You are solely responsible for any and all use of your Account Information and all Orders (defined below) and activities that occur under or in connection with the Account. Without limiting any rights which we may otherwise have, we reserve the right to take any and all action as we deem necessary or reasonable to ensure the security of the Site and your Account, including without limitation terminating your Account, changing your password, or requesting additional information to authorize transactions on your Account. You agree to be responsible for any act or omission of any users that access the Site or Services under your Account Information that, if undertaken by you, would be deemed a violation of these Terms. In no event and under no circumstances will Earthmuse be held liable to you for any liabilities or damages resulting from or arising out of (i) any action or inaction of Earthmuse under this provision, (ii) any compromise of the confidentiality of your Account or password, and (iii) any unauthorized access to your Account or use of your Account or password. You may not use anyone else’s Account at any time, without the permission of the Account holder. Please notify us immediately if you become aware that your Account Information is being used without authorization. You agree not to register for more than one Account, register for an Account on behalf of an individual other than yourself without such individual’s authorization, or register for an Account on behalf of any group or entity.
These Terms govern any purchase order you make through the Site by employing Services, which may be, for instance, the purchase of framed artwork, fine artwork, housewares, etc. (each such purchase action, an “Order”). Your placement of an Order through our Site is an offer to purchase the product(s) and/or Services ordered and we may accept your Order by processing your payment and shipping the final product. Your receipt of an electronic or other form of Order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your Order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. For any reason, we may decline to accept your Order or any part of your Order. No Order will be considered accepted by Earthmuse until the final product(s) has been shipped to you. If one or more of the products in your Order are temporarily out of stock, we will ship the available products only and notify you of any products that cannot be fulfilled. If we decline to accept your Order, we will attempt to notify you at the email address you provided. We further reserve the right any time after receipt of your Order, without prior notice to you, to supply less than the quantity you ordered of any item. Your Order will be deemed accepted by Earthmuse upon our delivery of the final products that you have Ordered to the extent such products are available to Earthmuse. We may require additional verifications or information before accepting any Order. All products shall be deemed accepted by you upon shipment, and title to, and risk of loss of, the products passes to you when Earthmuse provides the product(s) to a common carrier.
Any estimated shipping date provided by Earthmuse is based on the date that Earthmuse receives your Order, product availability and payment processing time, and does not include transit time. Earthmuse processes orders to shipping addresses globally.
Every product sold by Earthmuse is “made to order,” which means it is specifically manufactured just for you only after you have placed your Order. Accordingly, Earthmuse does not accept refunds, returns or exchanges for Orders. We are also unable to make any changes or cancellations to orders after 24 hours from the moment the Order is placed. If you believe you have made a mistake with your Order, please contact us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On rare occasions, one or more products in an Order may be damaged while in transit in possession of our shipping partners. If one or more of your product(s) arrives damaged, please send detailed, clearly visible photos of the damage including images of the packaging to email@example.com. In cases where one or more product(s) is materially damaged, Earthmuse may elect to restore or replace the damaged product(s) at Earthmuse’s sole discretion following a review of the photos submitted (“Damage Review”). If requesting a Damage Review, you expressly acknowledge and agree to the following: 1) photos of damaged areas of product(s) must be clearly visible and submitted in .jpeg or .png format; 2) photos of damage must be received by Earthmuse no fewer than seventy-two (72) hours following the indicated delivery date of the applicable Order by the shipping provider responsible for delivering the Order; 3) photos of the damage must have been taken immediately following receipt of the product(s), and the product(s) must not have been hung, placed or otherwise installed prior to photos of the damage being taken; 4) a Damage Review requires a minimum of thirty (30) business days to complete, and Earthmuse may elect to replace or repair the damaged product at its sole discretion; and 5) the delivery of a replacement product, if any, will be subject to then existing manufacturing capacity, inventory, availability and shipping timing, and you may be responsible for payment of return shipping in the event that Earthmuse elects to repair or replace the product(s).
5. Payment, Pricing and Products
To pay for an Order, you will need to provide Earthmuse with the information necessary to process an Order from you, including your shipping address and the billing information requested on the Site to pay for such Order. You may pay for your Order via credit card or any other manner available on the Site. By submitting your payment information to us, you authorize us to charge the applicable payment method at our convenience but within thirty (30) days of credit card authorization. You represent that you will not use any credit card or other form of payment unless you have all necessary authorization to do so. We assume that because Orders require a valid credit card, only persons age 18 or over are placing Orders, and providing us with the information requested during the Order process. We shall not be liable in the event your children or others acting with or without your permission use your credit card or other means of payment to make purchases on the Site (and to the extent your minor children make any such purchases, you hereby represent and warrant that they are authorized to do so); however you may report any unauthorized use to us, and we will use reasonable measures within our control to help prevent future unauthorized use of your card.
We make efforts to display our products and their colors as accurately as possible. Having said that, the displayed colors of the products will depend upon your monitor and we cannot guarantee that your monitor will accurately portray the actual colors of the products. Products displayed may be out-of-stock or discontinued, and prices are always subject to change at our sole discretion. We cannot confirm the price of an item until you place an Order. In the event that you change your Order, the price of your Order will likely change. You authorize us to charge your payment method for any changes to your Order that you have initiated on the Site or otherwise (for instance, by way of an email request to Earthmuse). We are not responsible for typographical errors regarding price or any other matter.
