1.  Definitions

“Seller” means ClifTunes LLC doing business as Couture Book. “Buyer” means an account holder who submits an order. “Contract” means the order and any special conditions. “Goods” means the books and related products the Seller sells in accordance with the T&Cs. “Order” means the Buyer’s order for Goods. “Order Confirmation” is the confirmation email sent by the Seller to the Buyer when an Order is successfully placed. “Price” means the price together with shipping in force at the date and time of the Order, subject to any promotional offer or discount then applicable. “Special Conditions” are any addendums to an Order set out and designated as such and agreed to by the parties in writing.

2.  Basis of Sale

The T&Cs and Special Conditions contain all of the terms and conditions pursuant to which the Seller will provide Goods to the Buyer.  The parties expressly exclude any terms and conditions not agreed to by the parties in writing.  In entering any Contract and in accepting delivery, the Buyer acknowledges that it did not rely on any representations concerning Goods not confirmed in writing.

3.  Orders and Specifications

All Goods are offered for sale subject to availability and subject to the Seller’s acceptance of the Order.  The Seller reserves the right to reject any Order without the obligation to give a reason for doing so.  No Order is deemed accepted by the Seller until the Seller confirms it unconditionally in the Order Confirmation or in writing.

The Seller has a policy of continuous product development and reserves the right to amend the specifications of any of the Goods without prior notice.  Goods supplied may therefore differ, including as a consequence of multi-standard color systems.  The Seller endeavors to match as accurately as possible the printed colors of and within the Goods, but cannot guarantee that the colors will exactly match those displayed on the Buyer’s monitor or on printed pages from other presses.

Because we begin to incur production costs shortly after an Order is placed, Orders are not refundable. However, if you make a mistake when placing your order or need to change your order, please contact us within 48 hours of placing the Order and we’ll work with you to resolve the issue.

4.  Price and Payment

The Buyer shall be responsible for any applicable taxes, including taxes applicable in the territory to which the Goods are sent.  The Buyer must pay in full by credit card or bank transfer at the time of placing an Order.  The Buyer warrants that all details provided to the Seller for the purpose of the Order and its delivery are correct and that the chosen method of payment is the property of the Buyer and that sufficient funds or credit facilities are available to cover the full cost of the Goods ordered.  All prices and currency references are in U.S. dollars.

Couture Book’s previous owner, Bigger Picture Productions, LLC, sold book credits at photography trade shows.  We honor these credits, if both unused and unexpired.  To redeem your credit, enter the code when you place your order.  Book credits can only be applied to the cost of the book(s) you order.  Book credits can’t be applied to shipping or custom upgrades and only one discount or book credit can be applied per order.

5.  Delivery

The place for delivery of the Goods will be as shown on the Order and the normal method of delivery (unless specifically agreed otherwise) will be FedEx Ground.  Because manufacturing time can vary for individual items of Goods, the Seller reserves the right to combine items into one shipping package or to ship items separately.  Any dates quoted for delivery by the Seller are estimates only.  Time for delivery will not be of the essence to the Contract and the Seller will not be liable for any loss or expense sustained by the Buyer arising from any delay in the delivery of the Goods regardless of cause.  The Seller reserves the right to make delivery of the Goods in installments.  The Buyer may not reject the Goods or any part of them solely on the grounds of short delivery of an installment.  If the Buyer wrongfully fails to take delivery of the Goods, the Seller does not have an obligation to refund the Price.  The Buyer must sign any required proof of delivery and inspect the Goods on delivery.  If the Goods are alleged to be damaged or defective on delivery, the Buyer must provide a written description and photographs of the alleged damage or defect at the time of delivery.

6.  Returns

The Seller guarantees its Goods’ binding and workmanship. If the Goods are, in fact, damaged or defective upon receipt, The Seller will provide the Buyer with a return shipping label and will repair or replace the Goods once received back from the Buyer at no charge.

7.  Limitation of Liability

Other than as specified in Section 6, The Seller will not be liable in any way for loss, damage, costs or expenses arising from any failure or delay in performing any obligation under a Contract by reason of any event or circumstance outside the reasonable control of the Seller, including (but not limited to) strikes, industrial action, failure of power supplies or equipment, government action, or Act of God.

The liability of the Seller, its agents, employees, subcontractors, and suppliers with respect to any and all claims arising out of the performance or non-performance of the Seller’s obligations under the Contract, whether based on warranty, contract, negligence, strict liability, or otherwise, shall not exceed, in the aggregate, the net purchase price (excluding taxes and shipping) of the Goods.  In no event shall the liability include damages for loss of profits or revenue; increased cost of purchasing or providing materials, supplies, or services; cost of replacement capital; claims of purchaser’s customers; inventory or use charges; or incidental or consequential damages of any nature.  This limitation of liability section shall prevail over any conflicting or inconsistent provision contained in any of the documents comprising the Contract.

It is up to the Buyer to take precautions to ensure that whatever computer equipment and/or software it uses is free of such items as viruses, worms, Trojan horses, or other items of a destructive nature.  In no event will the Seller be liable to the Buyer or any other party associated with the Buyer from any direct, indirect, special, or other consequential damages for any use of the CoutureBook.com website, or any other hyper-linked website, including without limitation, any lost profits, business interruption, loss of programs or other data on the Buyer’s information handling system or otherwise, even if the Seller has been expressly advised of the possibility of such damages.
