Except where prohibited by applicable law, by submitting User Content through the Site, you are waiving and agreeing not to assert any copyrights resulting from our alteration of the User Content or any Photos, Submissions, photograph(s), footage, illustrations, statements or other work contained in the User Content. You are also agreeing to appoint Luxury by Sofia as your irrevocable attorney-in-fact with respect to the User Content, with the right to execute and deliver any documents, in your name and on your behalf, to ensure that we can use the User Content that you are licensing in any way we see fit, own and protect the rights in any derivative works created from your User Content, and have the User Content removed from any other website or forum.
We respect the intellectual property of others, and we ask our users to do the same.

3. Payments; Ordering & Availability; Billing and Continuous Subscription Services.
You agree to have sufficient funds or credit available upon placement of any such order to ensure that the purchase price will be collectible by us. We attempt to be as accurate as possible and to eliminate errors on our Site. However, in the event of an error, we reserve the right to correct such error and revise your order accordingly or to cancel the order and refund any amount charged. We are under a legal duty to supply Product(s) that are in conformity with the order you place. In the event of a material error (for example, a pricing error or one that might affect your enjoyment of the Product), we will contact you in advance so that you can decide whether you want to cancel or proceed with the order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could reasonably have been recognized by you as a mispricing, we may end the Contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any Products provided to you. The Site may contain information regarding the availability of Products. In rare cases, a Product may be in stock when you place the order, and sold out by the time we attempt to process the order. Should this happen, we will notify you by email and cancel the item from your order. We also may offer some Products for sale before they have been manufactured or arrive at our warehouse. When you preorder these Products, we will ship them once they are available. In rare cases, these items may not become available for shipping. Should this happen, we will notify you by email and cancel the item from your order. Before completing the online purchase process, you will be asked to confirm the contents of your shopping cart. Once you do so, a summary of your order will be displayed and you will be asked to confirm your order. By clicking on the “Buy Now” button, you acknowledge that a contract is formed between you and us in relation to the Product(s) ordered (the “Contract”) and that you enter into an obligation to pay for the Product(s) in your cart. After entering into the Contract, we will send you a confirmation email (the “Order Confirmation”) and we will be under a legal duty to supply you with goods that are in conformity with the Contract.
Product prices displayed on the Site include VAT but exclude delivery costs, which will be automatically added when you view the items in your shopping cart. Prices in different countries and currencies may vary. When you complete your purchase, you agree to the price(s) presented for the Product(s). Prices and delivery costs may change from time to time, but changes will not affect orders for which we have already sent you an Order Confirmation.
All Products are eligible for return or exchange if return or exchange requests are submitted within 30 days of receiving the order (in its entirety). To return or exchange your Product(s), please email us at email@example.com. with your name, address, order number, and the Product(s) you would like to exchange or return. After we receive your exchange or return request, we will respond with further instructions about returning the Product(s) to us.
Upon receiving the returned Product(s) from you, we will process any refund due to you as soon as possible. You will be refunded in full to your original form of payment, including the cost of standard delivery; however, we will not refund your cost of returning the Product(s) to us. If you received any promotional or other discount when you paid, any refund will only reflect the amount you actually paid. For more information about returns and exchanges, please see here.
To cancel an order, you must clearly inform us of your cancellation request by writing to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You must provide us with your name, address, and order reference number when you submit your written request.
5. Limitation of Liability and Disclaimer of Warranties.
THE LUXURY BY SOFIA PARTIES DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE SITE WILL OPERATE ERROR FREE. IF YOUR USE OF THE SITE OR THE CONTENT RESULTS IN THE NEED FOR SERVICING OR REPLACING EQUIPMENT OR DATA, NO LUXURY BY SOFIA PARTY SHALL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THOSE COSTS.
IN NO EVENT SHALL ANY LUXURY BY SOFIA PARTY BE LIABLE FOR LOST PROFITS, OR DAMAGES RESULTING FROM LOST DATA OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION FROM THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES OR THE CONTENT, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, EVEN IF SUCH LUXURY BY SOFIA PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
6. Arbitration Clause and Class Action Waiver. The following provision is added as Section 13.8:
Notwithstanding the above, you may bring legal proceedings in respect of the Agreement either by following the arbitration procedure detailed in the Agreement or in the courts of the country in which you reside. The European Commission also provides EU consumers with an online dispute settlement platform, available at http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/ which provides information about alternative dispute resolution. Alternative dispute resolution is a process where an independent body considers the facts of a dispute and seeks to resolve it, without you having to go to court. Please note that we are not obliged to participate in alternative dispute resolution and reserve the right to consent to alternative dispute resolution in individual cases. Notwithstanding the foregoing, consumers residing in the EU will benefit from any mandatory provisions of the law of the country in which you reside. Nothing in this Agreement affects your rights as an EU consumer to rely on mandatory provisions of the law of the country in which you reside.
The Swedish National Board for Consumer Disputes provides a public authority to try disputes between consumers and business traders and may be contacted at http://www.arn.se/om-arn/english-what-is-arn/.
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to restrict, suspend, or terminate this Agreement and your access to all or any part of the Site or the Content at any time and for any reason without prior notice or liability, which may result in the forfeiture and destruction of all information associated with your Account. We reserve the right to change, suspend, or discontinue all or any part of the Site or the Content at any time without prior notice or liability. All provisions of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, licenses of User Content, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity, limitations of liability, class action waivers and arbitration.
8. Miscellaneous. The following sentence replaces the first two sentences of Section 18.1:
This Agreement shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the country in which you reside.
