Poetry Jam may save User’s/Shopper’s/Member’s credit or debit card information and use it for all future shipments and charges, which will automatically be charged to the saved card, unless the Member notifies Poetry Jam through the Site (poetryjam.org). When you order a Product, or use a Service that has a fee, you will be charged then current fees, which we may change from time to time (such when we have holiday sales or offer you discount of base product price). We may choose to temporarily change the fees for our Services for promotional events or new Services, and such changes are effective when we post the temporary promotional event or new Service on the Site. The sale will be submitted for processing and you will be charged as soon as you click on the “confirm” button. You will then receive an e-mail from us.

By placing an order through the Site, you are confirming that you are legally entitled to use the means of payment tendered and, in the case of card payments, that you are either the cardholder or have the cardholder’s express permission to utilize the card to effect payment.

In the case of an unfounded chargeback, the User shall reimburse Poetry Jam for its losses, which consist of fulfillment costs and chargeback handling fees ($15 USD per chargeback).

We may refuse to process 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 refusing or suspending any transaction after processing has begun.

Unless otherwise stated, all fees and payments are quoted in U.S. Dollars. The User is responsible for paying all fees, payments and applicable taxes associated with our Site and Services.

4. Description of products

Whilst many component parts of our Products are standard, all Products available for purchase are described on their specific design page on our Site. We always try to represent each design as accurately as possible via photography and copy points provided by designers, artists or photographers.

We have a policy of continuous Product development so we can provide you with what we consider the best design combined with best performance, and thus reserve the right to amend the specifications of Products, their price, packaging and any Service associated at any time, without prior notice. Before ordering, we thus invite you to have a close look at the Product description and design.

We use our best efforts to provide you with the best images and descriptions, but unfortunately cannot guarantee that colours and details in website images are 100% accurate representations of the product, and sizes might in some cases be approximate.

Sometimes during the manufacturing process Products can be damaged, obviously they won’t be shipped out to Users and Customers, however they can still be used for charitable purposes. Poetry Jam reserves the right to donate all damaged items with full or partial designs to charity and the User hereby waives its right to collect royalties or other fees regarding damaged products that are donated.

5. Purchase of products

Your order represents an offer to us to purchase a Product which is accepted by us once we have sent you an e-mail order confirmation. Any Products on the same order which we have not confirmed in an order confirmation e-mail do not form part of that contract.

Poetry Jam shall under no circumstances be held liable for any special losses due to specific circumstances of the User and/or Customer, indirect or consequential losses or wasted expenditure.
