H. PRODUCT INFORMATION MADE AVAILABLE ON THE SERVICE
1. DTC makes every effort to ensure that the Service is as accurate and complete as possible at all times. However, from time to time, information or materials on the Service concerning products, including but not limited to prices, may be out of date or inaccurate due to system, typographical, or other errors. While we make every attempt to avoid these errors, they do occur. DTC reserves the right to discontinue or change descriptions, images, references, features, content, specifications, prices, and availability of products offered on or though the Service at any time without prior notice, in its sole discretion. The inclusion of any product on the Service at a particular time does not imply or warrant that such product will be available at any other time. DTC further reserves the right to refrain from honoring inaccurate or erroneous prices, even after an order has been placed; errors in advertised prices are not binding on DTC, and may be adjusted by DTC at any time. DTC shall have the right to refuse or cancel orders placed for a product listed at the incorrect price, regardless of whether the order has been confirmed and your credit card charged. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have any questions about any product, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. DTC makes reasonable efforts to accurately display the attributes of our products, including the applicable sizes and colors. However, some products displayed on the Service may appear larger or smaller than their actual size in our photographs, and, since every computer monitor is set differently, color and size may vary slightly. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee that your screen will accurately display product colors and sizes.
3. In compliance with industry standards and FTC regulations, DTC states that carat total weight in all purchases may vary 0.05 carats from stated weight.

If DTC discovers or is of the opinion (as to which DTC shall have sole discretion) that you are not legally entitled to make certain purchases through the Service, DTC shall be entitled to cancel your order immediately, without notice.
3. DTC reserves the right, for any reason in its sole discretion and at any time after receiving your order, to accept, refuse, place on hold, decline, or cancel any order you submit to us even after your receipt of an order confirmation. (Understand that your receipt of an email order confirmation does not signify DTC’s acceptance of your order or a confirmation of our offer to sell, but rather is simply an acknowledgement that we received your order.) DTC reserves the right, with or without prior notice, to limit the available quantity of or discontinue any product; to bar any user from making any or all purchase(s); and/or to refuse to provide any user with any product. DTC shall not be liable to anyone for withdrawing any product from the Service or for refusing to accept any order.

4. Your ring will be fully insured while in transit, from the time it is shipped from DTC’s headquarters to the time you receive and sign for it.
5. Because our rings are high-value items, your package will need to be signed for at the shipping address upon delivery; customers are responsible for coordinating and accepting delivery from the shipping carrier.
6. All estimated shipping dates regarding your order provided by DTC are for reference only, and shall not be considered a guarantee, warranty, or commitment by DTC that your order will be delivered on that date. Since the actual delivery of your order may be impacted by events beyond DTC’s control once it has shipped, DTC cannot be held liable for late deliveries.
K. LIFETIME MANUFACTURING DEFECT WARRANTY
1. DTC offers a lifetime guarantee on rings purchased through the Service. If there’s an issue with your ring down the road due to a manufacturing defect, DTC will always fix or replace it. (To be clear, this warranty only covers manufacturing defects; any damage to rings purchased through the Service subsequent to delivery is expressly excluded.) If you believe your ring has a manufacturing defect subject to this guarantee, please contact us at email@example.com to arrange for shipment of your ring to us. We will cover shipping, take a look at your ring, and contact you within 48 hours to let you know how we can help.

3. DTC will cover all shipping costs for returns – however, please do not ship us anything to be returned without contacting us first at email@example.com, as we will send you all necessary shipping and packaging materials for you to use to complete the return. Please note that returns will only be processed for rings sent to us with LOOP pre-authorized labels and packaging.
4. DTC also allows order changes and cancellations anytime before your order is shipped.
5. After an order is returned or cancelled, you can expect to receive your refund within 7-10 business days.
