Masqueraders Agreement

Masqueraders Agreement!!!!! 

 

By purchasing or attempting to purchase any product(s) and/or service(s) offered or advertised by Party Room Squad Mas (together known as the “Company”), and in consideration of being allowed to participate in the Miami Broward Carnival Parade (the “Event”) you (the “Customer” or “You”) are stating that you fully and unconditionally agree to all policies, disclaimers, terms, conditions, and guarantees detailed herein.

 

Refund/Return Policy:  Please note that carnival costumes are custom-made items therefore once a down-payment is made, it is non-refundable.  Additionally, there will be: NO exchange or switching of sections. NO changing of measurements or sizes.  NO Costume Transfers.  NO Returns Accepted.

 

With respect to any claim that any of the services were deficient, you must notify the Company by email, addressed to partyroomsquad@gmail.com immediately following the Company’s nonperformance of services offered.  If you fail to give the Company written notice of such deficiency immediately, the Company will not be required to remedy such deficiency.  Provided that you give the Company notice in accordance with this paragraph, the Company agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to remedy such deficiency and, in connection therewith, you agree to provide proof of such deficiency to enable such efforts.  If no proof of such deficiency is provided to the Company, the Customer will not be liable for a refund.  If the Company, using commercially reasonable efforts, is unable to remedy any deficiency in Services provided, then the Company, in its sole discretion, may elect to issue you a refund for the deficiencies on Services provided, as specified in Limitation of Liability.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company’s liability to you shall be limited as specified in this Agreement.

 

Limitation of Liability:  Partial refunds may be awarded to the Customer at the Company’s sole discretion, including but not limited to when the foregoing conditions have been met, partial services have been provided prior to a written request being received, or if the Company is unable to complete all of the Services purchased.

 

Chargebacks and Attorneys’ Fees:  Dishonest claims for chargebacks are deemed fraudulent, which results from a customer making a purchase with his or her own credit card, receiving the merchandise/service, and then filing for a chargeback.  This involves dishonest people who would like to benefit from our Services without actually paying for them.  If you request a refund on services rendered, for any amount paid by You via credit card which (i) the credit card issuer (the ‘issuer’) later rejects or refuses to pay, or (ii) the Company is later required to reimburse the issuer (each, a ‘chargeback’), then in each case, the Company reserves the right to charge and You agree to pay, in addition to the amount not paid, rejected or refused, a fee of 10% of such amount, or the highest rate allowed under applicable law, whichever is lower and to pay interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 1.5% per month, or the highest rate allowed by applicable law, whichever is lower, until paid in full.  In addition, You agree to pay all collection costs, including reasonable attorney’s fees, incurred by the Company in collecting any amounts that You owe to the Company, whether incurred before or after civil litigation is commenced.

 

Costume Collection Policy:  Costume packages must be collected in person with a valid form of ID. Persons may collect the costume in their name only.  The costume distribution schedule will be advertised via electronic or print media.  The final date of costume distribution is Carnival Saturday after the J’Ouvert celebration after which all uncollected costumes remain the property of Party Room Squad Mas, and any down-payments are forfeited.  In order to collect a costume on behalf of another masquerader, the person collecting the costume must present a signed letter authorizing them to collect the costume on the owner\'s behalf, accompanied by a copy of the costume owner\'s ID.  The signature on the letter and ID must match.
