Terms and Conditions
These Terms and Conditions will apply to all goods purchased from THE SM STORE (“We”, “Our” or “Us” through our Call to Deliver Gifting Program.
PRODUCTS, PRICING, AND SPECIFICATION
We do our best to provide you with an accurate description of the products featured in our catalogues, website and social media pages and those shared through messaging applications (collectively, the “Products”), but we cannot assure you that such description, color, information or other content available are accurate, complete, reliable, current or free from error. Some Product descriptions may include weight, measurements and other descriptions, but they are just approximate figures provided for your convenience only. We make all reasonable efforts to accurately display the attributes of the Products, including the available colors. However, the color you see in the catalogue, website social media pages and messaging applications may differ from the actual color, if you use your mobile device, computer system, monitor, and/or other display features.
We may, at any time, change the price and other specifications of the Products.
RESTRICTIONS, LIMITATIONS OR CONDITIONS OF PURCHASE OR GIFTWRAPPING
We may, without prior notice, limit the Products sold through our Call to Deliver Gifting Program, to cancel any order at any time, and/or to refuse service to any customer. We will notify you through the email address or contact number you provided for any cancellation or change status in your order. We may also require verification of information prior to the acceptance and/or shipment of any order.
You may customize the gift wrapping for the Products purchased, at your own cost, subject to our gift wrapping policy.
All prices indicated in our catalogue, website and social media pages and shared through applications are in Philippine Peso. The following payment options are available for your convenience.
- Pre-Payment (Debit or Credit Card)
Most major credit and debit cards, such as Visa, Mastercard, JCB and American Express, are accepted. When you pay using your credit or debit card, you will be redirected to another website owned and operated by an independent payment gateway service provider, which shall collect and process your financial information pursuant to its own terms and own policies.
- Online Payment and E-Wallets
Online and e-wallet payments are also accepted. You will be redirected to another website owned and operated by the bank or the e-wallet company, which shall collect and process your financial information pursuant to its own terms and policies.
- Over-the-Counter Payments
You may choose to pay in cash at our accredited partner establishments, which shall collect and process your financial information pursuant to its own terms and policies
If you fail to make any payment pursuant to the payment method selected or payment is cancelled for any reason whatsoever, we will cancel the order and suspend delivery of the Products until payment is made in full.
After an order is placed and full payment is made, independent service providers will deliver the Products to your designated address within the Philippines. To avoid delay or cancellation of delivery, you have to ensure that the designated recipient of the Products or his/her representative is compliant with the independent service provider’s shipping restrictions, terms and conditions. The signature of the designated recipient or his/her representative is a confirmation of receipt of the Product in good condition and that our Call to Deliver Gifting Program has been completed.
Delays may unfortunately occur due to high volume of orders, logistics limitations, geographic restrictions, inclement weather and other instances that are beyond our control. However, we will do our best to prepare your packed orders and deliver them the soonest we can.
Return and exchange of Products are subject to our Return and Exchange Policy.
ACCURACY OF INFORMATION
Our catalogue, website and social media pages may contain typographical errors or inaccuracies and may not be complete or current. As such, we may correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions (including after an order has been submitted) and change or update information at any time without prior notice. Such errors, inaccuracies or omissions may relate to pricing and availability, and we may cancel or refuse to accept any order placed based on incorrect pricing or availability of information.
LIMITATIONS ON LIABILITY
We, our parents, subsidiaries, affiliates or partners, or our/their respective directors, officers, shareholders, employees and agents will not be responsible or liable for any ordinary, direct, consequential, incidental, special, punitive or exemplary damages or another losses or liabilities arising out of: (a) use of the Product; (b) delay in delivery of the Product; and (c) breach by independent service providers.
For the Product purchased, your sole remedy, if any, is with the manufacturer or supplier of the Product, in accordance with such manufacturer’s or supplier’s warranty, or to seek a return or refund for such Products in accordance with our Return and Exchange Policy.
