3. Campaigns and Products.

Certain areas of the Service require payment before you can receive them (“Campaigns”). When you participate in a Campaign, you agree to pay for the Products associated with the Campaign (“Products”).  If the minimum order goal is not met, you will not receive the Campaign Product and will instead be issued a refund in the amount of your initial payment, less any applicable service or transaction fees.  PRODUCTS PAID FOR IN ADVANCE IN CONNECTION WITH ANY CAMPAIGNS CANNOT BE REFUNDED IF THE MINIMUM ORDER GOAL IS MET, AND MAKESHIP WILL NOT REFUND ANY FEES THAT YOU HAVE ALREADY PAID.  In the event that a Campaign does not meet a minimum order, your reimbursement  will be made using your original payment method.  Additional Terms may apply.

We do our best to describe every Product offered on our Service as accurately as possible. However, we are human, and therefore we do not warrant that product specifications, pricing, or other content on the Service is complete, accurate, reliable, current, or error-free. In the event of any errors relating to the pricing or specifications, Makeship shall have the right to refuse or cancel any orders in its sole discretion. If we charged your credit card or other account prior to our cancellation, we will issue a credit to your account in the amount of the charge. Additional Terms may apply. If a Product you purchased from Makeship is damaged, your sole remedy is to contact Makeship support and request a credit for the purchase price.  All purchases/sales from successful Campaigns are otherwise final and non-refundable.

All physical Products purchased from the Service are made pursuant to a shipment contract.  This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon delivery to the carrier.

4. Customer Support. 

If you have any questions or comments, please send an e-mail to us here.  You acknowledge that the provision of support is at Makeship’s sole discretion and that we have no obligation to provide you with customer support of any kind.  All legal notices to us must be mailed to: 5414 Turney Drive, Mississauga, Ontario, L5M 4Y8.  When you communicate with us electronically, you consent to receive communications from us electronically.  You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
