LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITE.  The Site may contain links, or references, to other websites.  Activyst does not control such websites and disclaims all responsibility for their content, products, services and/or information. These links are provided as a convenience.  If you access any linked websites and/or acquire any third party products or services, you do so at your own risk and subject to any terms and conditions and privacy policies imposed by the third parties who administer such sites.  

PRODUCT SALES.  All product sales from the Site are governed by any terms of sale that are posted on the Site, including these Terms, product warranties, our return policy, and shipping terms. By placing an order and/or accepting delivery of any product, you agree to be bound by all terms of sale. The terms of sale are subject to change at Activyst’s discretion and without prior notice, so you should review the terms of sale each time you make a purchase. 

Activyst reserves the right to refuse to fulfill any order you place with us for any or no reason.  Products will not be shipped until payment is received in full.  We may limit or cancel quantities you purchase, for any or no reason, irrespective of whether the order has been confirmed.  If you have already been charged for your order that is limited or cancelled, Activyst will refund the money charge for undelivered goods.  

WARRANTY.  Your Activyst products come with a 30-day limited warranty.  This warranty covers defects in materials and workmanship.  If such a defect appears during the warranty period, Activyst will repair or replace (at Activyst’s sole option) the product without charge.  You are responsible for shipping costs.

Activyst will inspect the returned product and will determine, at its sole discretion, if the product damage is covered by the warranty terms as laid out here.  Any attempted returns that do not fall under the warranty terms will not be accepted.  Of note, Activyst bags are made by hand and thus your beautiful bag may vary slightly in appearance from the model on the website; such variations do not trigger the warranty.  

The Activyst bags are made from macen, a fabric that is durable but does require some special care.  You can clean your bag by rinsing it or wiping it with water and dry it by air or with a towel.  Do not place your bag in the washer or the dryer, as that can destroy the macen's weave.  Macen, while strong, is prone to permanent creasing, so do not fold the bag for long periods of time.  An immaterial crease, or imperfection, in the macen at the time of receipt of your bag does not trigger the warranty.  Any crease, or imperfection, in the macen occurring after the time of receipt does not trigger the warranty.  

This warranty shall not apply to any defect or nonconformity caused by the unauthorized or unreasonable use of the goods following sale.  Not covered by this warranty is normal wear and tear, normal fading, abuse, improper care, negligence, modifications, accidents, damage to the macen weave due to trauma, use for a purpose other than for which it was designed, and the natural breakdown of colors and materials over time.  Damage incurred during airline handling is not covered by this warranty; claims in such cases should be directed at the airline.  

Under no circumstances shall Activyst be liable for special, indirect, incidental or consequential damages, whether the claim is based upon warranty, contract, negligence, strict liability or other cause of action. The warranty is provided only to the original individual, and cannot be assigned or transferred.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.  You bear full responsibility for any damages incurred as a use of this Site.  Your only remedy is to discontinue use of the Site.  Activyst and its officers, directors, owners, employees, agents, suppliers, licensors, and third party partners will not be liable for any damages whatsoever incurred as a result of using the Site (including, but not limited to, indirect, special, punitives, incidental, exemplary, multiplied or consequential damages, lost profits or revenues, failure to realize expected savings) irrespective of type of claim (this includes exclusion claims under contract, tort, negligence, and any other theory of law) and irrespective of whether Activyst was on notice of a potential issue.  Certain jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of certain damages, so the above may be inapplicable to you.

GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION.  These Terms shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the United States of America and the laws of the State of California.  Any dispute related to these Terms must be brought exclusively in the courts of the State of California in the County of Los Angeles or the Central District of California.  By using this Site, and agreeing to the Terms, you agree to be subject to personal jurisdiction in the Federal and State courts of the State of California.   

LANGUAGE.  All communications and agreements between Activyst and you, and any proceedings in connection with these Terms of Use and/or your use of the Site, exclusively shall be made in the English language. Activyst and you waive any rights we may have under any law to have these Terms of Use written in any language other than English, and any translation of this Terms of Use will be for convenience only.
