The following terms and conditions (the “Agreement”) constitute an agreement between First Philippine Scales, Inc. (“First Philippine Scales”, “we”, “us” or “our”) and you (“you”, “your” or “User”).
By using our Service, you acknowledge that you have read, understood and agree to be bound by the Agreement. Please read them carefully. If you do not agree with the Agreement, please do not access or use the Service.
The Service provides a marketing platform in the World Wide Web of the Internet where third party merchants or retailers (“Merchants”) can offer products (“Products”) to and transact with the Users of the Service, wherein First Philippine Scales facilitates payments in behalf of the Merchants and provides all relevant services required to fulfill the order requests of Users.
We may modify the terms and conditions from time to time, as we deem necessary. Please check back periodically to review the changes.
Your continued use of the Service following such modifications shall signify your acceptance of the modified Agreement. If you do not agree with the modified Agreement, you may not access or use the Service.
The access and use of the Service by any minor under the age of 13 is prohibited. The Service is not available to Users suspended or removed from the system by First Philippine Scales.
To gain access and use some portions and features of the Service, you will need to register as a member. Registering as a member requires you to expressly signify your acceptance of the Agreement.
You are required to provide information about yourself that is true, accurate, current and complete. If you furnish information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete (or becomes untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete) or if First Philippine Scales suspects that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete), First Philippine Scales reserves the right to suspend or terminate your membership.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password, and for restricting access to your account. You are solely responsible for all activities that occur under your account. You agree to notify First Philippine Scales immediately of any unauthorized use of your account or breach of security.
You shall not use your First Philippine Scales membership for any purpose competitive to First Philippine Scales.
Unless you cancel your order, acceptance of your order will be perfected upon completion of the packing of your order. Completion of the contract between you and First Philippine Scales will be perfected when we dispatch the goods to you at which time you will receive a second email containing your tracking number, and confirming that your order has been dispatched.
First Philippine Scales reserves the right not to accept your order in the event that we are unable to obtain authorization for payment, shipping restrictions apply to a particular item, that the item ordered is out of stock or does not satisfy our quality control standards.
Further, we may refuse to process an order at any time for any reason at our sole discretion.
We operate on a first-come, first-served basis policy. Therefore, items in stock may currently appear on your Cart but can be purchased by another customer who was first able to complete the check-out and payment procedures. However, any stock from cancelled orders go back to the Site the next day and may be purchased by you or any other customer subject to the completion of our check-out and payment procedures.
Once your order has been placed, you will receive an Order Acknowledgement email. Your receipt of an Order Acknowledgement email does not mean First Philippine Scales’s acceptance of your order. We are simply acknowledging that we have received your order.
First Philippine Scales may, in its sole discretion, choose to accept or decline your order for any reason. This may happen, for example, when the item you wish to purchase is out of stock or has been damaged; we suspect the request is fraudulent or in any other circumstance First Philippine Scales deems appropriate. For orders that were not processed or canceled, First Philippine Scales will either not charge you, or refund you the total billed amount. The preceding actions shall be applied to the rightful person(s) in cases of fraud.
First Philippine Scales takes extra measures to provide you with accurate information on products we offer on the web site. First Philippine Scales does not guarantee, however, that the information is error-free, current, complete or reliable.
Inventory levels fluctuate from day-to-day. In rare cases, you may have been able to place an order online for a product portrayed as having stock, but once we attempt to process it, we find out that the product is sold out. In cases like these, we will notify you via email.
We try to display the colors of products as accurately as possible on the web site. We cannot guarantee, however, that your computer monitor’s display of colors will be true to life.
All prices posted on the web site are inclusive of government-imposed taxes. First Philippine Scales tries to advertise the most accurate and up-to-date pricing information on the products offered on the web site. We cannot, however, warrant against pricing error. If you have placed an order for a product whose price was posted incorrectly, we will either not process or cancel your order. Should this happen, we will notify you via email.
