Term & Conditions
The information and materials on this Site are provided for general informational purposes. You may use this Site solely for the purpose of learning about and/or purchasing our Products. You may not use, reproduce, or distribute the text, graphics, downloads, tools, or any other content on this Site for any other purpose. This Site is not directed at children and you may not use this site if you are under the age of thirteen.
2. Order Acceptance and Cancellation
Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept, decline, or limit your order for any reason, whether or not your payment method has been charged. If applicable, your order will be refunded in the original form of payment. If your credit card has been charged and your order is canceled, we will issue a refund to your credit card account in the amount of the charge and notify you that your order was canceled. Promotions will be refunded and reactivated in your account, as long as the promotion has yet to expire.
Orders from our Site may be canceled any time before the order is packed (15 mins from the time the order is placed) by contacting email@example.com as soon as possible. You will receive a full refund, including any shipping, duties, and/or regional taxes. Once the order is packed, however, Porte Mode cannot cancel the order. Please note that orders may be packed within an hour of receiving the purchase confirmation.
3. Payment Terms
Terms of payment are within our sole discretion and, unless otherwise agreed by us in writing, shall be as follows:
All orders are subject to verification for security reasons. You will be contacted and will have 48 hours to complete the verification process. If you do not respond after such time, you will be notified and the order will be canceled and refunded in the original payment method.
Once you place an order from our Site, you will be required to pay the full amount due, plus shipping fees (if applicable) and any taxes associated with the Product at the time you place your order.
4. Changes in Products and Pricing
We are constantly updating and revising our offerings of Products, and we may discontinue Products at any time without notice. All pricing for the Products is subject to change. For all of our prices and Products, we reserve the right to make adjustments due to changing market conditions, Product discontinuation, manufacturer price changes, errors in advertisements, and other extenuating circumstances. If the price of an order changes after you've paid for it, your order will be canceled and your monies refunded.
We attempt to be as accurate as possible with Product descriptions and prices. However, we do not warrant that Product descriptions or prices are accurate. In the event that a Product is listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect information due to typographical error or error in pricing or Product information received from our suppliers, we shall have the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for Products listed at the incorrect price. We shall have the right to refuse or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has been confirmed and your payment method has been charged. If your payment method has already been charged for the purchase and your order is canceled, we shall issue a refund in the amount of the charge and advise you of the canceled order. If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, you may return it in accordance with our Return Policy, as set forth below.
Porte Mode will honor price adjustments on Products purchased within a 5-day period prior to the start of a sale. Please note that the Product must still be available on the Site in the same size originally purchased to qualify for this policy. All approved price adjustments will be issued in the form of Porte Mode Credits and the Product will be considered a Final Sale, as defined below.
We are only able to honor price adjustments at the initial markdown, and will be unable to honor them with subsequent markdowns or changes in prices, if any.
We will not price match any sale or discount prices with any other retailers, including affiliates.
5. Shipping Fees and Taxes
We may charge sales tax on orders shipping to certain states, in accordance with state law. This tax will be charged at the time you place your order for the Product.
6. Shipping Policy
We offer a variety of shipping options to meet your shipping needs. Please check the shipping options at checkout for specific delivery options and fees. No Cash on Delivery (C.O.D.) orders can be accepted.
Please note that the posted shipping time frame, if provided, may vary from item to item. The posted shipping time frame is contingent upon payment approval and may be delayed should we experience difficulties in obtaining authorization or for other reasons.
All orders are dispatched with ‘No Signature Required’ and may be left at a residence deemed safe by the delivery company. Porte Mode is not responsible for any loss or liability or damage that may result from leaving your package at the shipping address without a signature. If you prefer to have your order shipped with ‘Signature Required’, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org so that we may make arrangements.

8. Interaction with Other Users
You alone are responsible for your involvement with other users. If you have a dispute with one or more users, you irrevocably and forever release Porte Mode (and Porte Mode's officers, directors, agents, affiliates, and employees) from claims, demands, and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.

9. Product Colors, Designs, and Typographical Errors.
We have made every effort possible to ensure the colors and designs are displayed as accurately as possible. However, we cannot guarantee that your computer’s monitor will accurately display the true color or design of the Products. If you have any questions about the color or design of an item please contact email@example.com prior to placing your order. Similarly, in the event that a Product is mistakenly listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect specifications, we reserve the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for such Product listed incorrectly, whether or not the order has been confirmed and your payment method has been charged. If your payment method has been charged for the purchase and your order is cancelled, we will issue a credit to your credit card account or other payment method used in the amount of the incorrect price charged. In no event shall Porte Mode be obligated to provide you the merchandise at the incorrect price.
10. Return Policy
In order to return Products that are not Final Sale (as defined below), please follow the instructions on our Site for Returns. The cost of return shipping shall be borne by you, and if you are eligible for a refund, we will deduct such cost from any amount to be refunded.
We are pleased to accept timely returns of new and unused Products within 14 days from the date you received your order. Returns can be refunded as Porte Mode Credits or to the original method of payment, where applicable.
Your Products must be returned in the original packaging, including any boxes, hangers, garment bags, and other signature packaging materials, including Porte Mode and designer hanging tags. Other designer packaging such as belts, dust bags, authenticity cards, and leather tags should all be included where provided. If your order did not include the proper packaging please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We may, at our sole discretion, refuse to accept any returned Products which are damaged, do not include the packaging materials, are soiled, or have been altered, and will return such Product back to you. In any case, refunds or credits will not be processed until the items are returned to and inspected by Porte Mode.
Late Returns. Any Product returned outside of the 14-day return policy is eligible for a refund only at the sole discretion of Porte Mode, and we may not accept the Product or may accept the Product only in exchange for Porte Mode Credits, at our sole discretion.
Final Sale. If a Product is not eligible to be returned (“Final Sales”), it will be noted in the Product Details.
11. Contests and Promotions
Porte Mode may, sometimes, issue promotional codes, site credits, and similar “gift certificates” which will provide a credit towards a purchase on the Site when redeemed at checkout. These codes are non-transferrable, and are to be used only by the intended recipient. In particular, we reserve the right to cancel a promotion and/or to reject redemption of a promotional code when the total value of the promotional code exceeds a certain value, generally the price of the Product for which the promotional code is used.
Promotions are only eligible for full-priced Products and are limited to one per transaction. Minimum spends may be required. Where a promotion has been communicated via email, the promotional code is non-transferable and the email address provided during checkout must be the same as the email address to which the promotion was sent. Porte Mode shall not be liable to any customer for any financial loss arising out of the refusal, cancellation or withdrawal of a promotion or any failure or inability of a customer to use a promotional code for any reason.
Promotional codes do not cover the costs of any shipping, duties, and/or regional taxes where applicable, and you are responsible to pay for them.
All promotions have an expiration date. Once a promotion has expired the amount may not be refunded.
Any Porte Mode contest rules and regulations will be communicated directly to you.
