Each time you use the Site, you should review the current Terms & Conditions. You can determine when these Terms & Conditions were last revised by referring to the “LAST UPDATED” legend at the top of these Terms & Conditions.

With respect to any such registration, we may refuse to grant to you, and you may not use, a user name (or e–mail address) that is already being used by someone else; that may be construed as impersonating another person; that belongs to another person; that personally identifies you; that violates the intellectual property or other rights of any person; that is offensive; or that we reject for any other reason in our sole discretion.
Your user name and password are for your personal use only. If you use the Site, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your computer, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password.

Monika Chiang reserves the right, without notice and in its sole discretion, to terminate your account or your use of the Site, and to block or prevent future access to and use of the Site if you violate any of these Terms & Conditions. Upon any such termination, your right to use the Site will immediately cease. You agree that any termination of your access to or use of the Site may be effected without prior notice, and that we may immediately deactivate or delete your password and user name, and all related information and files associated with it, and/or bar any further access to such information or files. You agree that we shall not be liable to you or any third party for any termination of your access to the Site or to any such information or files, and we shall not be required to make such information or files available to you after any such termination. Upon termination, all provisions of these Terms & Conditions which are by their nature intended to survive termination, all representations and warranties, limitation of liabilities, and all indemnities shall survive such termination.
We make available products for purchase through the Site, and we may use third–party suppliers and service providers to enable e–commerce functionality on the Site. If you wish to purchase any product made available through the Site, you may be asked to supply certain information relevant to your transaction, including, without limitation, your credit card number, the expiration date of your credit card, your billing address, and your shipping information. YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU HAVE THE LEGAL RIGHT TO USE ANY CREDIT CARD(S) UTILIZED IN CONNECTION WITH ANY TRANSACTION. By submitting such information, you grant to Monika Chiang the right to provide such information to third parties for purposes of facilitating the completion of Transactions initiated by you or on your behalf. Verification of information may be required prior to the acknowledgment or completion of any Transaction.
Descriptions and images of, and references to, third–party products or services available in connection with the Site do not imply Monika Chiang’s endorsement of such third–party products or services. All descriptions, images, references, features, content, specifications, products and prices of products and services described or depicted on the Site are subject to change at any time without notice. Certain weights, measures and similar descriptions are approximate and are provided for convenience purposes only. The inclusion of any products or services on the Site at a particular time does not imply or warrant that these products or services will be available at any time. It is your responsibility to ascertain and obey all applicable local, state, federal and international laws (including minimum age requirements) in regard to the possession, use and sale of any item purchased from this Site. By placing an order, you represent that the products ordered will be used only in a lawful manner. Monika Chiang reserves the right, with or without prior notice: to limit the available quantity of or discontinue any product or service; to impose conditions on the honoring of, any coupon, coupon code, promotional code or other similar promotions; to bar any user from making any or all transaction(s); and/or to refuse to provide any user with any product or service. You agree to pay all charges that may be incurred by you or on your behalf through the Site, at the price(s) in effect when such charges are incurred, including, without limitation, all shipping and handling charges. In addition, you remain responsible for any taxes that may be applicable to your transactions.
Monika Chiang strives to display as accurately as possible the colors of the products shown on the Site. However, because the colors you see will depend on your monitor, Monika Chiang cannot guarantee that your monitor’s display of any color will be accurate.
LIMITATIONS ON QUANTITY
Monika Chiang does not offer additional discounts on large orders of a single item or on large orders of many individual items. In addition, we reserve the right to limit quantities on orders placed by the same account, the same credit card, or orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. We will notify you if such limits are applied.
AVAILABILITY, ERRORS AND INACCURACIES
Many of our featured items are offered in limited quantities and, because of their limited availability, stock will not and cannot be refreshed. That means once an item is gone, it may be gone for good and not appear on the Site again. When an item featured on the Site is no longer in stock, we make reasonable attempts to remove that item from the Site in a timely manner. Should you have any questions concerning the availability of a particular item, please contact us at 310.786.8200.
Monika Chiang’s acknowledgment of an order means that your order request has been received; it does not mean that your order has been accepted or shipped, or that the price or availability of an item has been confirmed. Monika Chiang makes a conscientious effort to describe and display its products and services accurately on the Site. Despite these efforts, a small number of the items on the Site may be mispriced, described inaccurately or unavailable, and we may experience lags in uploading updates throughout the Site and in our advertising on other sites. As a result, we cannot and do not guarantee the accuracy or completeness of the information, including prices, product images, specifications, availability and services. Monika Chiang reserves the right to change or update information and to correct errors, inaccuracies or omissions at any time without prior notice. We apologize for any inconvenience.
RISK OF LOSS
The risk of loss and title to products purchased on the Site pass to the purchaser upon delivery to the carrier. The risk of loss and title of GiftCards and e–GiftCards passes to the purchaser upon our electronic transmission to the recipient or delivery to the carrier, whichever is applicable.
COMMENTS / FEEDBACK
We welcome your comments and feedback regarding our Site, our products and our services. We do not, however, accept confidential or proprietary information. Accordingly, all comments, feedback, ideas, suggestions, materials, information, product designs or concepts, and other submissions disclosed, submitted or offered to Monika Chiang using this Site or otherwise (collectively, “Comments”) are not confidential and will become and remain Monika Chiang’s property. The disclosure, submission or offer of any Comments will constitute an assignment to Monika Chiang of all worldwide rights, titles and interests and goodwill in the Comments without payment of any compensation. Comments submitted by you must not violate any right of any third party, and must not contain any libelous, abusive, obscene or otherwise unlawful material.
