7. PRODUCTS, COLORS & MATERIALS:
As Qipology makes bespoke garments as part of our customization service, we often hold small inventory of materials to ensure each garment is special and unique to every customer. Should there be cases where the materials are unavailable, we will send an email to your registered email address to provide alternative options for you to choose.
We understand that you want to know what your garment should look like when it reaches you, so we sometimes use digital color replication on our Site to show all the color variations you can choose from. We strive to display the colors, materials variations and images of our products as realistically as possible but with the use of different computers and mobile screens by each customer, we cannot guarantee there will be no discrepancies. There may be cases where the color shown digitally does not perfectly match the color of the actual garment and some slight variations may occur. We do not warrant that the quality of any products, services, information, or other material purchased or obtained by you will meet your expectations.
We reserve the right at any time to modify or discontinue the Service (or any part or content thereof) without notice at any time.
