If you continue to use the Website or Services, we will take this as your acceptance of these Terms and Conditions.
When certain words and phrases are used in these Terms and Conditions, they have specific meanings (these are known as 'defined terms'). You can identify these defined terms because they start with capital letters (even if they are not at the start of a sentence). Where a defined term is used, it has the meaning given to it in the section of the Terms and Conditions where it was defined (you can find these meanings by looking at the sentence where the defined term is included in brackets and quotation marks).
When we refer to "SPAARKD", "we", "us" or "our", we mean SPVRKD AG or, where relevant, its subsidiaries or affiliates. Where we refer to "you", "your" or “user” we mean you, the person using the Services.
We have used headings to help you understand the Terms and Conditions and to easily locate information. These Terms and Conditions are only available in the English language. We will not file copies of the contracts between us and you relating to our supply of the Services, so we recommend that you print or save a copy of these Terms and Conditions for your records (but please note that we may amend these Terms and Conditions from time to time so please check the Website regularly, and each time you use the Services, to ensure you understand the legal terms which apply at that time).

We want every member of our Community to have the best experience possible when using the Website and the Services. Please beware: We take any breaches of the above restrictions very seriously. They spoil the experience for other users and can prevent us from providing our Services.
You warrant that any such content and use of the Website does comply with the above standards, and you will be liable to us and indemnify us for any breach of that warranty. This means you will be responsible for any loss or damage we suffer as a result of your breach of warranty.
As set out in section 6.9 (Interaction on the Website and adherence to Community Standards), you must not infringe our intellectual property rights or those of any third party in relation to your use of the Website or Service, including by the submission of any material (to the extent that such use is not licensed by these Terms and Conditions).

The Website allows users to access the Services offered by SPAARKD. The Website and the Services are provided for general information and entertainment purposes only.

We commit to save trees (or engage a third party to do so) on your behalf (either as a customer or a creator) in various locations across the world. The Website uses graphics and other visual materials to present this information to you. Please note that we make no representations, warranties, or guarantees, whether express or implied, that such information (including, but not limited to, the total number of trees which have been planted as part of the initiative or the exact location of the tree(s) planted on your behalf) is accurate, complete, or up to date.
On any termination of these Terms and Conditions, your right to use the Website and the Services will stop and we may terminate your access to and use of the Website and Services and invalidate all or any relevant access details.

Termination of these Terms and Conditions will not affect:
All sales of products via the Website will be based on the Terms of Sale set out in this section 7.
Please read these Terms of Sale carefully before you place an order. These Terms of Sale tell you how we will provide products to you, how you and we may change or end the contract of sale, what to do if there is a problem as well as additional important information.
You must be 18 or over to accept these Terms of Sale on your own behalf, as well to purchase any products from us.
If you are under the age of 18: You should have your parent or legal guardian’s permission to purchase products from us. Please have them read these Terms of Sale with you.
If you are a parent or legal guardian of a user under the age of 18: By allowing your child to purchase products from us, you are subject to the terms of these Terms of Sale and responsible for your child’s purchases.
Voting & order window: The Community can vote for designs from on Monday ("Voting Window"). Registered users can support designs with one vote per design per week. For a design to become available for purchase in the Store from Tuesday to Sunday ("Order Window"), it must receive a minimum of 100 votes during one (1) Voting Window. All votes are reset to zero (0) at the beginning of a new Voting Window.
The length of the Voting Window and Order Window as well as the voting mechanism and all related implications are subject to modification and termination by the Company at any time without prior notice.
Being among the first 100 voters of a design: The first 100 users to vote for a product during a Voting Window will collectively share 5% of the revenue from the same product’s sales for one (1) subsequent Order Window, if and only if the product is made available for sale in the Store during this Order Window.
In the event that the product does not receive 100 votes or is not made available for sale in the Store during the subsequent Order Window, none of the abovementioned 100 voters shall be entitled to any revenue. Participation in the voting process is subject to the Company's verification, and any fraudulent or improper activity may result in disqualification.
Placing your Order: Once you have placed your order for products on the Website (“Order”), we will send you an Order acknowledgement email detailing the products you have ordered. This is not an order confirmation or an acceptance of your Order by us. Your Order is an offer to buy a product or products from us and your offer will not be deemed to have been accepted by us until we have sent you a dispatch confirmation.
Accepting your Order: Our acceptance of your Order will take place when we email you to confirm that your Order has been dispatched from the distribution center at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
Whilst we try to minimize this as much as possible, there may be occasions where we are unable to accept your Order once it has been placed via the Website. We will inform you of this and will not charge you for the product. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline.
We attempt to be as accurate as possible in the description of the products displayed on the Website. However, as the descriptions are based on information provided to us by the creators, we cannot guarantee that all details are always accurate, complete or error free. The images of the products on the Website are for illustrative purposes only, and although we attempt to display colors accurately, we cannot guarantee that your computer's display of the images accurately reflects the true color of the products.
The packaging of the product may vary from that shown in images on our Website.
If you wish to make a change to the product you have ordered, please contact us and we will let you know if the change is possible. Please note that we will do our best to make your requested change within the 15 (fifteen) minute period after you have placed your order, but we cannot guarantee that we will be able to implement the change you have requested (either during that 15 (fifteen) minute period or afterwards) once you have placed an Order via the Website.
If the change is possible, we will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change.
If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the contract (see section 7.10 (Termination of contract)).
We may make minor changes to the product:
In addition, as we informed you in the description of the product on the Website, we may make more significant changes to the product, but if we do so we will notify you and you may then contact us to end the contract before the changes take effect and receive a refund for any products paid for but not received.
The costs of delivery will be as displayed to you on the Website.
During the order process will let you know when we will provide the products and will deliver them to you as soon as reasonably possible. Please note that due to the 'made-to-order' nature of our products, delivery will usually take between 7 and 21 business days.
In any event, delivery will take place within 30 days after the day on which we accept your order or if you have selected a specific delivery date during the order process, by the delivery date agreed between us.
If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control, we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimize the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.
If no one is available at your address to take delivery and the products cannot be posted through your letterbox, we will ensure that our third-party carriers inform you of how to rearrange delivery or collect the products from a local depot.
If you do not collect the products from us or our third-party carriers as arranged or if, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from a delivery depot we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery we may end the contract and section 7.13 (Our rights to end the contract) will apply.
You have legal rights if we deliver any goods late in accordance with the delivery times set out in section 7.4 (Order dispatch) above. If we miss the delivery deadline for any goods, then you may treat the contract as at an end straight away if any of the following apply:
If you do not wish to treat the contract as at an end straight away, or do not have the right to do so under this section 7.6 you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can treat the contract as at an end if we do not meet the new deadline.
If you do choose to treat the contract as at an end for late delivery under this section 7.6 you can cancel your Order for any of the products or reject products that have been delivered. If you wish, you can reject or cancel the order for some of those products (not all of them), unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value.
After that, we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled products and their delivery. If the products have been delivered to you, you must post them back to us or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. We will pay the costs of postage or collection. Please use our FAQs for information on how to initialize a return.
We will notify you in advance in case we suspend supply of the product unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we have to suspend the product for longer than 30 (thirty) days, you may contact us to end the contract, or tell you we are going to suspend it, in each case for a period of more than 30 (thirty) days and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the product in respect of the period after you end the contract entered into between us.
A product will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the product to the address you gave us. You own a product once we have received payment in full.
We may have to suspend the supply of a product to:
Whilst we aim to reduce returns (and the impact on our environment), we understand that there may be issues with your product or things may just not work out. Your rights under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:
If you are ending a contract for a reason set out below, the contract will end immediately, and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
You may be entitled to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013.
However, please note that you do not have the right to change your mind in respect of:
You have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the products unless your products are split into several deliveries over different days. In this case, you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the last delivery to change your mind about the products.
To terminate your contract with us, please use the settings section on the Website or visit our FAQs to find out more.
If you end the contract for any reason after products have been dispatched to you or you have received them, you must return them to us. You must post them back to us at Petratex - Confecções, S.A., (SPAARKD), R. do Bande 429, Carvalhosa, Portugal, 4590-049, or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you.

We will pay the costs of return:
In all other circumstances (including where you are exercising your right to change your mind), we may ask you to pay the costs of return.
If you are responsible for the costs of return and we are collecting the product from you, we may charge you the direct cost to us of collection. The costs of collection will be the same as our charges for standard delivery.
We will refund you the price you paid for the products including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.
If you are exercising your right to change your mind:
We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible.
If you are exercising your right to change your mind and we have not offered to collect them, your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the product back to us.
We may end the contract for a product at any time by writing to you if:
If we end the contract in the situations set out in this section 7.13 we will refund any money you have paid in advance for products we have not provided but we may deduct or charge you reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your breaking the contract.
We are under a legal duty to supply products that are in conformity with this contract. Please find your key legal rights in relation to the product below. Nothing in these terms will affect your legal rights.
Summary of your key legal rights
This is a summary of your key legal rights. These are subject to certain exceptions. For detailed information please visit the Citizens Advice website www.adviceguide.org.uk or call 03454 04 05 06.
If your product is a good, for example, items of SPAARKD clothing, the Consumer Rights Act 2015 says goods must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. During the expected lifespan of your product your legal rights entitle you to the following:
a) Up to 30 days: if your goods are faulty, then you can get an immediate refund.
b) between 30 days and 6 months: if your goods can't be repaired or replaced, then you're entitled to a full refund, in most cases.
c) after 6 months: if your goods do not last a reasonable length of time, you may be entitled to some money back.
If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject products, you must post them back to us or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. We will pay the costs of postage or collection. Please visit our FAQs to learn how to return an item.
We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you on the Website is correct. However, we are very busy providing the best Service possible to the Community and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, mistakes happen. As such, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced on the Website from time to time.
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.
If the rate of VAT changes between your Order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
You must pay for the products before we dispatch them.
If you think an invoice is wrong, please promptly contact our Customer Service team. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.
From time to time, we may provide you with codes that you can use on the Website to reduce the price of specified products (a “Promotional Code”). It is your responsibility to enter any such Promotional Codes at the checkout section of the Website in order for them to apply to your order.
Separate terms and conditions (including relevant exclusions) will apply to each Promotional Code that we issue. We will notify you of where to find such terms and conditions at the point of issuing the relevant Promotional Code.
If we provide you with a Promotional Code which is unique to you, you must not share that Promotional Code to any other person, including (but not limited to) making that Promotional Code publicly available (for example, posting it on social media or uploading it to third party website) or selling that Promotional Code to any third parties. If you misuse (or we suspect you are misusing) a Promotional Code, we can withdraw your right to use that Promotional Code with immediate effect.
If we become aware of (or where relevant, reasonably suspect): (a) any widespread misuse of the Promotional Code; (b) an event which is outside of our control; and/or (c) any other issues or circumstances, in each case which prevent the promotion running fairly and reasonably and as we intended, we reserve the right to amend, suspend or withdraw the Promotional Code at any time with immediate effect.
We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these Terms and Conditions, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking these Terms and Conditions or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time you accepted these Terms and Conditions, both SPAARKD and you knew it might happen.
We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence; the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the products, as summarized at section 7.14 (Complaints or inquiries); and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
If you use the Website for any commercial, business or resale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
We are also not responsible for failure to meet any of our obligations under the Terms and Conditions where such failure is due to events beyond our reasonable control.
The use of the Website and Services and/or its contents is at your own risk. The contents of the Website could include technical inaccuracies or typographical errors.
Nothing in these Terms and Conditions is intended to affect or limit your rights under the law. For more information about your rights contact your local Citizens Advice Bureau or Trading Standards Bureau.
We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these Terms and Conditions to another organization. We will always notify you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights.
You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these Terms and Conditions to another person if we agree in writing.
Each of the paragraphs of these Terms and Conditions operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
Even if we delay in enforcing these Terms and Conditions, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these Terms and Conditions, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking these Terms and Conditions, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
A person who is not a party to these Terms and Conditions will not have any rights to enforce its terms.
We may at any time transfer or deal in any other manner with all or any of our rights or obligations under these Terms and Conditions, but you may not do so without our prior written consent.
These Terms and Conditions, and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims), shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with the law of England and Wales.
You can bring legal proceedings in respect of these Terms and Conditions in the English courts.

You must not use our Website:
You also agree:
We may provide interactive services on the Social sections of our Website, including, but not limited to:
Where we do provide any Interactive Service, we will provide clear information to you about the kind of service offered, if it is moderated and what form of moderation is used (including whether it is human or technical).
We will do our best to assess any possible risks for users (and in particular for children) from third parties when they use any interactive service provided on our Website, and we will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation to use) in the light of those risks.
However, we are under no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate any interactive service we provide on our Website and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any interactive service by a user in contravention of our content standards, whether the service is moderated or not.
The use of any of our Interactive Services by a child under the age of 18 is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use an Interactive Service that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online, as moderation is not foolproof. Children who are using any Interactive Service should be made aware of the potential risks to them.
Where we do moderate an Interactive Service, we will normally provide you with a means of contacting the moderator, should a concern or difficulty arise. You will also be able to report to the moderator any use of the Interactive Services which you suspect breaches these Global Community Standards.
The Content standards apply to all content which you contribute, upload or share on our Website and to any Interactive Services associated with it, including but not limited to content in the form of text, voice, video or imagery (“Contribution”).
SPAARKD has the right, at its sole discretion, to decide whether a Contribution breaches these Content Standards.
A Contribution must:
A Contribution must not:
When we consider that a breach of these Global Community Standards has occurred, we may take such action as we deem appropriate.
We exclude our liability for all action we may take in response to breaches of these Global Community Standards. The actions we may take are not limited to those described above, and we may take any other action we reasonably deem appropriate.
