1. Agreement to be Legally Bound by Terms:
This Agreement (the “Agreement”) represents a legally binding, contractual agreement between you (“you”) and DECIEM Inc. (“DECIEM”, “us”, “our” or “we”) with respect to your use of any website operated by or on behalf of DECIEM (each, a “Website”). By using a Website, you are: (i) representing that you have reached the legal age of majority in your jurisdiction of residence; (ii) indicating your acceptance of, and agreement to be legally bound by, all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, as they govern your access to and use of a Website and any services, products, materials, or information available on or through a Website; and (iii) agreeing to comply with all applicable laws and regulations as they may change from time to time. IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT AND AGREE TO BE LEGALLY BOUND BY AND COMPLY WITH ALL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT, YOU ARE NOT PERMITTED TO ACCESS OR OTHERWISE USE THE WEBSITE. We suggest you print a copy of these Terms for your records.
3. Modification of this Agreement by DECIEM:
Subject to applicable law, DECIEM reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to modify all or any portion of this Agreement at any time without incurring any liability or obligation whatsoever to you or any other person or entity. If we do this, we will post the changes to this Agreement at least thirty (30) days before the amendment comes into effect, and will indicate at the top of this page the date this Agreement was last revised. You may refuse the amendment and rescind, or cancel your participation without cost, penalty or cancellation indemnity, by sending us notice to that effect no later than thirty (30) days after the amendment comes into force, using the information in the notice. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, your continued access to and/or use of any Website after the date specified in such notice constitutes your full acceptance of, and agreement to be legally bound by, the terms of this Agreement, as revised.
4. Account Registration and Security:
When you make a purchase through a Website, you must either register for a DECIEM account (an “Account”) or check out as a guest. If you choose to make a purchase as a guest, you will still be required to provide certain personal information to allow us to process your Order (as defined below in Section 5). When you make a purchase with us through a Website, you agree: (i) that you will provide complete and accurate information about yourself; and (ii) if you have registered for an Account, to promptly update such information as it changes to ensure that it is kept accurate and complete. You are solely responsible for the accuracy of all information that you provide to DECIEM, regardless of whether you register for an Account or purchase as a guest. In the event that you do not provide or update such information, or DECIEM has reasonable grounds to suspect that you have not provided or updated such information, DECIEM shall have the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to prevent you from using any of its Websites.
If you have registered for an Account, it is your sole and absolute responsibility to keep the password and other information provided to you by DECIEM confidential and secure. In the event that your password and/or Account are used without your consent or that you discover any other breach of security, you agree to promptly notify DECIEM at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are not responsible for your failure to comply with this clause, or for any delay in shutting down your Account after you have reported a breach of security to us. You are solely responsible for any and all activities which occur under your Account.
5. Making Purchases through a Website:
You may only make purchases through a Website if you are over the age of legal majority in your jurisdiction of residence. Purchases will only be shipped to a valid mailing address (as determined by DECIEM in its sole and absolute discretion). However, please note that we may not be able to ship to all valid addresses and, in such circumstances, we reserve the right in our sole and absolute discretion to cancel your purchase transaction (“Order”). In the event we are not able to ship to the shipping address you provide, we will notify you, your Order will be cancelled, and you will receive a refund in respect of your Order (unless you are able to provide an alternate eligible shipping address). We further reserve the right not to offer expedited or other forms of shipping. 'Free Worldwide Shipping' is subject to minimum purchase requirements established by region which may vary from time to time. Unless otherwise indicated, all dollar amounts on the website are in Canadian Dollars.
All Orders made through a Website are subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, as well as any other applicable terms and conditions outlined on the Website relating to the Order. Pricing and other terms and conditions relating to the purchase, return, refund, or delivery of your Order may be changed at any time without notice. Prices may differ from those for purchases made through other channels. You have a legal obligation to pay for any Orders indicated to be made by you. By completing an Order through a Website, you are agreeing to pay, in full, the prices and all applicable taxes and specified shipping and handling and other fees in relation to your Order, either by credit card or other permitted payment method. Payments are processed by a third party service provider and DECIEM does not collect your financial information. DECIEM will only charge you the invoiced amount, but your financial institution may charge you a service charge or other bank fees.
DECIEM reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to change the permitted methods of payment, including without limitation, the credit cards and/or other types of payment options we are able to accept, at any time. If complete payment for your Order is not received and verified by us, your Order will not be processed. If you do not complete or improperly complete your Order it may not be accepted or acknowledged.
In order to complete an Order through a Website, you may be required to provide certain additional information that is required to process your Order. For example, you will be required to provide valid payment information (e.g. a valid credit card number and expiration date) to facilitate payment of your Order.
Please note that merchandise is only held for you once you have completed your Order. Adding an item or items to your shopping cart (“Cart”) does not reserve such item(s) for you or guarantee that you will be able to purchase such item(s) at a later date. An item can sell out while it's sitting in your Cart. If an item was removed from your Cart, this may mean that we have sold out prior to you completing your Order. DECIEM reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to change the prices offered on the website at anytime, including without limitation, items that have been placed in your Cart.
You will be billed for your Order at the time your Order is placed. You will be responsible for all applicable taxes related to your Order. Applicable taxes will be charged at the time you are billed. Applicable sales tax will also be applied to the shipping and handling, return shipping and gift packaging or other charges. Taxes may depend on delivery location.
6. Return Policy:
If you are not happy with your purchase made through a Website, you may apply for a refund within 365 days (1 year) of receiving your Order. Shipping and handling, return shipping and gift packaging or other charges (as applicable) are not refundable. Processing time for refunds is typically in the range of 7-21 business days from the time we receive your refund request – but, time frames may vary in the sole and absolute discretion of DECIEM. An email will be sent confirming receipt and processing of your return request. You must contact our customer service team via email prior to sending your return request. At that time, DECIEM will inform you as to whether or not you are required to return the original product(s) to us (at our shipping expense) in order to process your refund request. You will be given a return authorization number, which must be included with your return request. DECIEM will then determine, in its sole and absolute discretion, whether or not you are entitled to a refund and, if so, the amount of the refund you are eligible to receive. DECIEM reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to refuse to provide a refund or accept your Order for any reason – including, but not limited to, if we deem your Order to be suspicious or fraudulent in any way. To contact customer service, please email email@example.com.
The estimated delivery time will be specified in your Order; however, as we use a third party to deliver Orders, it is possible that your Order will arrive before or after the estimated delivery time. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to deliver your Order as quickly as possible within the time period(s) indicated; however, we will not be responsible for any delays in delivery which are beyond our control. If you do not receive your Order within 28 days of the estimated delivery time, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that multiple Orders may not always be shipped together. In addition, depending on the size of your Order you may receive several shipments to complete your Order.
8. DECIEM Rights Regarding Orders:
Without limiting the generality of any other section of this Agreement, DECIEM reserve the right to limit or refuse any Order you place with us. Further, we reserve the right to verify the validity of all Orders and/or cancel any Order if we find evidence of fraud, tampering and/or any other violation of the terms and conditions of this Agreement. We may, in our sole and absolute discretion, limit or cancel quantities purchased per person, per household or per Order. These restrictions may include Orders placed by or under the same Account, the same credit card, and/or Orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. We also reserve the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, not to ship items ordered or purchased through a Website to certain addresses. In the event that we are unable to or choose not to ship an item, you will be notified accordingly and the amount for that item charged in relation to your Order will be reduced accordingly.
9. DECIEM Not Responsibile for Errors:
Information (including, but not limited to, information relating to product descriptions, pricing, promotions, offers, and/or availability) provided by DECIEM in relation to a Website are believed to be accurate at the time of publication. Unfortunately, however, there may sometimes be information on the website that contains typographical errors, inaccuracies, or omissions. We reserve the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, to correct any such errors, inaccuracies or omissions and to change or update information or cancel Orders if any information on a Website is erroneous or inaccurate at any time without prior notice (including after you have submitted your Order).
10. Verification of Orders by DECIEM:
All Orders are subject to verification by DECIEM at any time and for any reason. We reserve the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, to require proof of identity (in a form acceptable to DECIEM): (i) for the purposes of verifying the legitimacy of any Order and/or other information; and/or (ii) for any other reason we deem necessary, in our sole and absolute discretion, for the purposes of fulfilling an Order in accordance with our interpretation of the terms and conditions of this Agreement. In order to help protect you and DECIEM from fraudulent transactions, we may provide your transaction-related information to a reputable third party organization to perform an address verification. This address verification is intended to ensure that the "bill to" address that you provide matches your credit card address.
11. Electronic Transmissions:
The transmission of data or information over the internet or other forms of networks may not be secure, and is subject to possible loss, interception or alteration while in transit. DECIEM does not assume any liability for any damage you may experience or costs you may incur as a result of any electronic transmissions over the internet, other forms of networks or otherwise while using a Website. In no event will any information you provide on or through a Website be deemed to be confidential, create any fiduciary obligations to you on our part, or result in any liability to you on our part in the event that such information is inadvertently released by us or accessed by third parties without your knowledge or consent. We ask that you please not send personal or financial information to us using unencrypted e-mail messages. While efforts are made to help ensure that our Websites are suitable for use on a various mobile and other devices, you should take reasonable and appropriate precautions to ensure compatibility of any Website you visit with your specific mobile or other device.

The Personal Information we may collect may include:
3. How does DECIEM Use and Disclose Personal Information?
We reserve the right to transfer any Personal Information we have about you in the event that we merge with or are acquired by a third party or should any such transaction be proposed.
We may also use, or disclose your Personal Information to third parties if we have reason to believe that using or disclosing such information is necessary to: (i) conduct investigations of possible breaches of law; (ii) identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating an agreement they have with us; (iii) investigate security breaches or cooperate with government authorities pursuant to a legal matter, for example, if we are subject to a subpoena, court order, or the information is requested by the police or another law enforcement entity; or (iv) to protect our rights, safety or property.
We may transfer your Personal Information to third party service providers that assist us with carrying out these purposes. For example, we use third party service providers to facilitate payments, and we may use a data processing contractor to operate computer systems on our behalf. We provide protection of personal information, which is required under PIPEDA.
When Personal Information is transferred to a such a third party service provider, that party will be contractually bound to use such Personal Information only to carry out the services we have requested, and to provide protection for the Personal Information.
4. How does DECIEM Collect Information through Technological Means?
When you visit a Website, we may collect information that is automatically sent to us by your web browser or your internet service provider. This information may include your domain name, and your numerical IP address. We may also collect other general information (such as the type of browser you use, which pages you view, and the files you request). We use this information to better understand how visitors use our Website(s), and to improve our Website(s)to better meet your needs. We use this information in the aggregate, and do not link it to your Personal Information. The amount of information that is sent by your web browser depends on the browser and settings you use. Please refer to the instructions provided by your browser if you want to learn more about what information it sends to websites you visit, or how you may change or restrict this.
To enhance your experience on our Website(s), we may use a feature on your Internet browser called a "cookie" and/or other similar devices. Cookies are small files that your web browser places on your computer's hard drive. They are used for a variety of reasons, such as tracking click streams, and for load balancing. Information tracked through these mechanisms may include, but is not limited to: (i) your IP address; (ii) the type of web browser and operating system being used; and (iii) the pages of a Website each user visits, (iv) Facebook pixel, (v) Google conversion tag. By using cookies, we can deliver faster service, consistent, updated results, and a better experience on our Website(s). Your browser gives you the option to reject cookies. However, setting your browser to reject cookies generally hinders the browser's performance and will adversely affect your experience while using our Website(s).
5. How does DECIEM Protect Personal Information?
The security of your Personal Information is important to us. We take measures to help protect your Personal Information by maintaining physical, organizational and technological safeguards intended to help protect against unauthorized use, disclosure or access. Personal Information may only be accessed by persons within our organization, or our third party service providers, who require such access to carry out the purposes indicated above. Personal Information we collect is maintained at Dallas, Texas, USA. We retain Personal Information that we collect for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected or to meet any legal requirements. We have retention standards which meet these requirements.
Although we have taken measures to help protect our Website(s), computer systems and any Personal Information that we have collected from unauthorized use, access, disclosure, misuse, alteration or destruction, no security measures can provide absolute protection. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us. All third parties that obtain Personal Information from us (e.g. service providers that perform functions on our behalf) are required to protect your confidentiality and Personal Information in a manner consistent with this policy, and/or as required by law.
Some or all of the Personal Information we collect may be stored or processed on servers located outside your jurisdiction of residence, including in the United States, whose data protection laws may differ from the jurisdiction in which you live. As a result, this information may be subject to access requests from governments, courts, or law enforcement in those jurisdictions according to laws in those jurisdictions. Subject to applicable laws in such other jurisdictions, we will use reasonable efforts to ensure that appropriate protections are in place to require the data processor in that country to maintain protections on the Personal Information.
6. Access and Rectification
You have a right to request access to your Personal Information and to request a correction to it if you believe it is inaccurate. If you have submitted Personal Information to DECIEM and would like to have access to it, or if you would like to have it removed or corrected, please contact us using the contact information provided below. We will use reasonable efforts to comply with your request; however, in some cases we may not be able to allow you to access certain Personal Information in certain circumstances, for example if it contains Personal Information of other persons, or for legal reasons. In such cases, we will provide you with a reasonable explanation of why it is not possible to grant access to your Personal Information.
7. Children and Parents
DECIEM does not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of thirteen (13). If a child has already provided us with Personal Information, his or her parent or guardian may contact us for the purpose of deleting this information.
