In particular, you must provide your real name, phone number, e-mail address and other requested information as indicated. Furthermore, you will be required to provide payment details that you represent and warrant are both valid and correct and you confirm that you are the person referred to in the Billing information provided.

The Site is available only to individuals and others who meet MAREI1998’s terms of eligibility, who have been issued a valid credit/debit card by a bank acceptable to MAREI1998 and who have authorized MAREI1998 to process charge(s) on their credit/debit card in the amount of the total purchase price. Products purchased by the buyer are for personal or gift use and should not be re-sold, used for commercial purposes or any other commercial benefit. In addition, MAREI1998 reserves the right to restrict quantities of an item being shipped to any one customer or postal address, and/or refuse any order that is unusual or placed in bad faith.

By making an offer to purchase merchandise you expressly authorize us to perform credit checks and where MAREI1998 feels necessary, to transmit or to obtain information about you to or from third parties, including but not limited to your credit/debit card number or credit reports, to authenticate your identity, to validate your credit/debit card, to obtain an initial credit/debit card authorization and to authorize individual purchase transactions.

  1. Orders

All orders are subject to acceptance and availability, and items in your shopping basket are not reserved.

MAREI1998 offers products for sale that are in stock and available for dispatch from our distribution center. Occasionally, however, we may be waiting for shipments from our suppliers. Consequently, you may from time to time be given the possibility of making an Advance Payment for certain items in which case you are able to make an Advance Purchase. This will ensure that you receive this item in priority once a stock has been delivered to MAREI1998. MAREI1998 will only take Advance Purchase orders for stock that has been scheduled for delivery by a supplier. Your rights regarding Advance Purchase are the same as those for any other purchase at MAREI1998. Please be aware that we may be unable to deliver selected Advance Payment merchandise due to production problems or quality check issues identified when we receive an order into stock. In these circumstances we will notify you by email and refund the Advance Payment to your credit/debit card within 30 days of being advised that merchandise has become unavailable.

 Trunkshow Orders

From time to time MAREI1998 launches a Tunkshow, inviting customers to preorder and secure next season’s looks by placing a deposit.

Once a Trunkshow is closed and the preorder accepted by MAREI1998, we will not be able to make changes to the order. This includes size, style, quantity, etc. As soon as the preorder has been placed and the Trunkshow has closed, it cannot be canceled unless the shipment is substantially delayed. In this case, you may contact us to cancel your order and we will give you a refund for any goods you have paid for but not received.

Any delays, production changes, or cancellations will be communicated to the customer.

Any other cancellation requests are at the discretion of MAREI1998, and may only be refunded as Site Credit.

  1. Pricing Policy

The prices displayed on the site are quoted in U.S. dollars and are exclusive of VAT, taxes and duties. In the event a product is listed at an incorrect price, we have the right to refuse or cancel orders placed for the product listed at the incorrect price, regardless of whether the order has been confirmed or your credit card charged. If your credit card has already been charged and your order is canceled, we will issue a refund to your credit card account. From time to time, prices are subject to change in response to currency exchange rate changes, markdowns and other commercial factors.

Customers will be charged for the items purchased and shipping costs only. Import duty or tax costs will be invoiced to you directly from the carrier. We recommend you contact your local customs authority to determine a landed cost price prior to purchase completion.

If you are a customer whose credit/debit card is not denominated in U.S. dollars, the final price will be calculated in accordance with the applicable exchange rate on the day your card issuer processes the transaction.

  1. Acceptance 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 MAREI1998 will be completed when we email you to confirm the goods have been dispatched.

 We reserve the right not to accept your order in the event that you do not meet the eligibility criteria set out within the TOS. 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. 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 fulfill 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 or is in transit. If you order a product that is priced incorrectly for any reason, we will email you to inform that we have not accepted your order and/or that the relevant part of your order has been canceled. If you have already paid for the goods, we shall refund the full amount as soon as we are able. In the event that products are recalled in transit, we will process your refund once the products have been returned to us.

 Payment

We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and any other methods which may be clearly advertised on the Site from time to time. You can also choose to pay with PayPal.

All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorization by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorize payment to MAREI1998, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.

We take reasonable care to make our Site secure. Furthermore, we take reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorized access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the Site.

In case of preorders, you will be required to pay fifty percent (50%) of the product price as a deposit at the time you place an order. We will charge the remaining fifty percent (50%) once the product is ready for shipment.

  1. Insurance and Delivery

You will own the goods on and from the later of the point in time when we receive payment in full, or we deliver the goods to you.

MAREI1998 insures each purchase during the time it is in transit until it is delivered to your specified delivery address. Thus, the responsibility for your purchased goods passes to you from the moment of delivery.

All purchases are shipped within 3-5 business days, with a door-to-door courier service, and require a signature upon delivery. Before we can dispatch your purchases, we may need to confirm your details with your card issuer. We will do our best to keep delays to a minimum.

Our delivery time starts from the moment an order is accepted and includes a 2-3-business-day period where your items will be processed and dispatched by our warehouse. Please note this can take longer during our sale periods. Delivery times appearing above are estimates and are to be used as a guide only and commence from the date of dispatch.

MAREI1998 is not responsible for any delays caused by destination customs clearance processes. Nonetheless, we work closely with our shipping partner to minimize the potential impact of custom delays on our international customers. While we aim to ensure that all orders are received when expected, delivery to a remote destination is not always guaranteed to arrive within the specified shipping timeframe. If delivery is delayed by any event outside of our control, we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimize the effect of the delay. Provided we do this, we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to cancel your order and we will give you a refund for any goods you have paid for but not received.

  1. Prices, Shipping Fees, Taxes and International Duties

Product prices displayed are exclusive of all taxes and duties. As the recipient, you are liable for all import duties, customs and local sales taxes levied by the country you are shipping to; payment of these is necessary to release your order from customs upon arrival.

MAREI1998 has a free shipping policy on orders over $100.
