Boutiques Connection Checkout Terms of Service
The below Boutiques Connection Checkout Terms of Service apply when you use the Boutiques Connection Checkout service (powered by Stripe) for purchases of products or services on the Site.
The Boutiques Connection Checkout service is technology that makes it easier for vendors on the Site (“Vendors”) to collect payment. Boutiques Connection Checkout service also makes it easy for you to store a credit card or debit card (“Payment Credentials”) with Boutiques Connection for use across the Web sites for vendors who have chosen to enable it. When you check out on Boutiques Connection, we will ask you if you would like us to remember you. When you allow us to remember you, Boutiques Connection (powered by Stripe) will store certain identifying information, such as a password, your email address, or your mobile phone number (“Stripe Credentials”), and your Payment Credentials. The advantage of providing such information is that it will make your checkout quicker and easier if you come back to the same Web site, or to any of the other Web sites that use Boutiques Connection (a “Checkout Enabled Site”). This can be especially handy when you are on a mobile device or do not have your credit card in front of you.
Boutique Connections Checkout service is a way of storing your Payment Credentials, but it does not change anything about your relationship with the vendors you are paying or your bank or credit card company. You are ultimately responsible for the purchases you make using BoutiquesConnection.. Also, the vendor is responsible for providing you with the products or services that you purchase using Boutiques Connection Checkout service, not Boutiques Connection. Boutiques Connection will use all reasonable efforts to keep your Payment Credentials secure. When using the Boutiques Connection Checkout service, you are purchasing products or services from vendors, and not Boutiques Connection. Representations made to you regarding product or shipping cost or prices are the representations of Vendors, and not Boutiques Connection. If you want to delete your Payment Credentials, stop storing information using Boutiques Connection Checkout, or otherwise change your settings, you can go to “My Account” and update certain preferences.
You hereby acknowledge and agree that you shall not hold Boutiques Connection liable for any vendor activities on the Site, and that you do and will hold Boutiques Connection harmless for any fees, costs, or expenses charged to or sought from you by a vendor (or any other party), including, but not limited to, shipping costs, as a result of your use of the BoutiquesConnection Checkout service (“Costs”).
You acknowledge and agree that by using the Boutiques Connection Checkout service, either Boutiques Connection or vendor will thereafter be determining and charging you a not-yet-known or an as-yet-to-be-finalized shipping fee, after checkout, in addition to the price of the order quoted at the time of checkout. You agree that you will hold Boutiques Connection harmless with respect to the final shipping costs, resulting changes to your orders, and any and all associated Costs resulting from such determination.
You shall have no more than seven (7) days from your receipt of any order shipped or caused to be shipped by vendors to you to reject such order based upon shipping costs or order variance, provided, however, all purchased items in any given order must be returned, with boxes unopened and with products in their original packaging, within seven (7) days from your receipt of the order. Furthermore, you shall be solely responsible for all return shipping costs.
Your purchase order amount may differ from the final invoice amount due to variances in the inventory conditions of ordered items and different shipping methods used by vendors. If all items are in-stock, vendors will add shipping charges to your ordered amount to calculate the final invoice amount and process the order without sending a separate notification. If some items in your order are out-of-stock, your purchase order will be split into multiple orders and processed separately. If some items in your order previously marked as “in-stock” are unable to be fulfilled by the vendor, the status of those items may be changed to “backorders.” You will then be notified via message and email of such change in status. If you do not confirm the updated status within three (3) days, the order may be cancelled.
When making purchases on the Site and using the Boutiques Connection Checkout service, you are purchasing products from vendors, and not Boutiques Connection. Representations made to you regarding return/refund policy are the representations of vendors, and not Boutiques Connection. Your purchases are subject to the applicable vendor’s return/refund policy as may be found on the vendor’s page.
