PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS SITE

 

By using our site, you confirm that you accept these terms of use and that you agree to comply with them.

 

If you do not agree to these terms of use, you must not use our site.

 

This website is operated by the steki. Throughout the site, the terms “we”, “us” and “our” refer to the steki. These terms and conditions (“Terms and Conditions” or “T&Cs”) (together with the documents referred to in it) tell you the terms on which you may make use of our website. Use of our site includes accessing and browsing our site and making purchases on it.

 

Our website is hosted on WordPress and WooCommerce which provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to promote and sell products to you on behalf of the designers and producers we choose to work with.

 

GENERAL CONDITIONS

By agreeing to these T&Cs, you represent that you are at least the age of majority in your place of residence and you have given us your consent to allow any of your minor dependents to use this site.

 

You may not use any products purchased via this site for any illegal or unauthorized purpose nor may you, in the use of the website, violate any laws in your jurisdiction (including but not limited to copyright laws).

 

YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH US

 

In making a purchase on our site, you understand that you are purchasing direct from the producer or designer of the product via the services of our site.

 

We endeavour to ensure that orders are fulfilled promptly and satisfactorily but you accept that we bear no responsibility for fulfilment of any orders, except in the limited number of cases in which the steki is fulfilling the order (as specified within the product description). On making a purchase on our site you understand that you are entering into a contract with the producer and/or designer of the product and that they are responsible for fulfilment of your purchase. Please refer to the terms of use relevant to each producer or designer from which you are making a purchase.

 

Any issues arising as a result of purchased items received by you in a damaged condition must be taken up with the producer, designer or distributor. We are not responsible for any such damage or its rectification.

 

We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time.

 

You understand that your content (not including credit card information), may be transferred unencrypted and involve (a) transmissions over various networks; and (b) changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks or devices. Credit card information is always encrypted during transfer over networks.

 

ACCURACY OF INFORMATION

 

We make reasonable efforts to ensure the images and information we provide in relation to products and designers are accurate, to the extent that we have been so informed by the designers themselves.

 

We are not responsible for information made available on this site that is not accurate, complete or current. The material on this site is provided for general information only and should not be relied upon or used as the sole basis for making decisions without consulting primary, more accurate, more complete or more timely sources of information. Any reliance on the material on this site is at your own risk.

 

We reserve the right to modify the contents of this site at any time, but we have no obligation to update any information on our site.

 

PRICING

 

Prices and shipping rates are set by the producer/designers of the products and are subject to change without notice. All prices listed on this website are inclusive of any VAT or locally equivalent taxes. These will be itemised in the invoice accompanying your product on delivery.

 

PRODUCTS HERE ARE SPECIAL

 

The nature of some products presented on the steki (handmade or small production batches, for example) means that stock production may be limited or take a significant amount of time. We endeavour to keep you fully informed of availability and delivery times before your purchase but you agree that we bear no responsibility for the accuracy of this information. We depend on the information given to us by the producer/designers and have no ability to speed up that process.

 

You also understand that the nature of handmade products or products made by small producers may mean a small level of inconsistency between the appearance of identical products. You agree that these are not faults but in fact enhance the nature of the product you have purchased.

 

Additionally, the colours of items represented on this site may not be a fully accurate reflection of the items due to variations in computer displays. Producers/designers have made every effort to ensure images are accurate representations of their products but bear no responsibility for perceived differences.

 

We reserve the right, but are not obligated, to limit the sales of our products or services to any person, geographic region or jurisdiction. We may exercise this right on a case-by-case basis. We reserve the right to limit the quantities of any products or services that we offer. All descriptions of products or product pricing are subject to change at anytime without notice, at the sole discretion of us. We reserve the right to discontinue any product at any time.

 

We do not warrant that the quality of any products, services, information, or other material purchased or obtained by you will meet your expectations.

 

ACCURACY OF BILLING AND ACCOUNT INFORMATION

 

We reserve the right to refuse any order you place with us. We may, in our sole discretion, limit or cancel quantities purchased per person, per household or per order. These restrictions may include orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same credit card, and/or orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. In the event that we make a change to or cancel an order, we may attempt to notify you by contacting the e-mail and/or billing address/phone number provided at the time the order was made. We reserve the right to limit or prohibit orders that, in our sole judgment, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers or distributors.

 

You agree to provide current, complete and accurate purchase and account information for all purchases made at our store. You agree to promptly update your account and other information, including your email address and delivery address, so that we can complete your transactions and contact you as needed.
