I. TERMS OF SALE

1. Production times are estimated with the understanding orders are submitted with all necessary information and you have approved all renderings and strike offs in a timely fashion. We are not responsible for delays beyond our control, including but not limited to late vendor shipment, trucking delays or delays caused by natural disaster. We will do our best to keep you informed of shipment status.

2. Customer shall assume all risk of loss or damage to materials upon their delivery, which shall mean once the shipment has been left at the shipping address you provided to us.

3. Limited Warranty: We will use reasonable efforts to inspect materials, or have materials inspected, before being delivered to the customer. In the event of a manufacturing defect, we will use reasonable efforts to expedite manufacturing-related claims in accordance with the manufacturer’s warranty. To report a defective item, please contact our customer service. In the rare case that, in June St. George’s sole discretion, a delivered product is defective, we will exchange the item if reported within 30 days of receipt. All defective items must be returned like new in their original packaging. Like new means that, while original protective wrapping may be missing, the original packaging is intact and pristine, and there are absolutely no signs of wear on the item or its packaging.

4. All textile fabrics have some degree of variability and there are variances in monitors and screen resolutions. It is normal for June St. George material to have some color or textural variations from online appearance, samples, and/or dye lot to dye lot. Such variations are not a basis for a defect claim. Please note that materials can expand or contract and, as such, dimensions may vary slightly as this is a hand-made product.

5. RETURNS: For custom products, no refunds, cancellations or exchanges are possible. All orders are FOB Shipping Point and are paid in full when the order is placed. CUSTOMER’S SOLE REMEDY, FOR ANY DEFECT OR COMPLAINT RELATING TO ANY PRODUCT PROVIDED BY JUNE ST. GEORGE, IS LIMITED TO REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT, AT JUNE ST. GEORGE’S OPTION, OF ANY ITEM DEEMED DEFECTIVE BY BOTH CUSTOMER AND JUNE ST. GEORGE, AND TIMELY NOTICED TO JUNE ST. GEORGE AS SET FORTH IN PARAGRAPH 3, ABOVE.  All rug sales are considered to be custom products unless specifically identified as, and marked as, ready-made products (the availability of which is not guaranteed).

6. Except for the Limited Warranty set forth in paragraph 3 above, NO WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, IS MADE AS TO THE MATERIALS. WARRANTIES APPLICABLE TO MATERIALS ARE LIMITED TO THOSE PROVIDED BY THE MANUFACTURER. THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILTY AND FITNESS FOR A PURPOSE ARE EXCLUDED FROM THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.

7. Except for a breach of the Limited Warranty set forth in paragraph 3 above, and other than the remedy set forth in paragraph 5 above, IN NO EVENT WILL JUNE ST. GEORGE OR ITS AFFILIATES BE LIABLE TO YOU (OR ANY THIRD PARTY MAKING CLAIMS THROUGH OR RELATED TO YOU) FOR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, OR DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF USE, PROFITS, DATA, OR OTHER INTANGIBLES, THE COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES, OR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO AND TAMPERING WITH YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE USE, INABILITY TO USE, PERFORMANCE, OR NON-PERFORMANCE OF THE SITE OR OUR SERVICES, EVEN IF JUNE ST. GEORGE HAS BEEN ADVISED PREVIOUSLY OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

II. REVIEW OF YOUR CUSTOM RUG ORDER

We provide the online tools for you to design and review your custom rug order before submission. Because of the custom nature of each order, we are unable to accept returns and cancellations are unavailable, so we encourage you to carefully review your order to ensure its accuracy before submitting. Because we are an online business and because we cannot allow for returns of custom rugs, we highly recommend you learn about our materials and carefully review the rendering that will be provided to you after you place your order. You will be provided with one strike-off sample 3-4 weeks after you have approved your rendering. If you request any additional renderings or strike offs after the first complimentary rendering and strike off, there may be an additional cost. Please contact us at letschat@junestgeorge.com to discuss additional fees and costs.

V. PRICING

All prices on the June St. George website, mobile application or any other medium (“Site”) are subject to change and/or correction at any time.

VI. DELIVERY

For custom rugs, we will begin to manufacture your rugs once your sample is approved and payment received.  Shipping time varies depending on a number of factors, including your location and rug size.  Delivery estimates will be provided to you either at the time of or after approval of your order. Rugs will be shipped via UPS, unless White Glove Delivery Service is selected. Please contact us at letschat@junestgeorge.com for pricing and availability of White Glove Delivery Service.

VII. SHIPPING DAMAGE

If your rug appears to be damaged upon delivery, then you must (1) make a note of the damage to the shipper; (2) refuse delivery of the rug from the shipper and (3) call or email letschat@junestgeorge.com immediately (same day as delivery) so that we can make arrangements.
