ORDERS
All orders are subject to acceptance and availability (of materials or any other necessary parts for its fulfillment), and Items in your shopping basket are not reserved and are only produced by the checkout and payment confirmation.

ALTER offers products for sale that are in stock of materials and available for production from our ALTER certified 3D printing or on demand production center. Occasionally however, we may be waiting for shipments from our material suppliers. Alternatively, you may simply choose to register your email address for notification of new item arrivals or material arrivals for the production of the selected items not held in stock.

If you have registered your email address for notification of the arrival of a specific product featured on our Site, we will attempt to notify you by email within 48 hours of the product becoming available on the Site. Please note that on occasion certain items that are in particularly high demand will sell out during this period due to material specifications, availability and limitations.

ALTER will store a record of your transactions for a minimum of one year.

PRICING POLICY

Prices shown on the Site are in US Dollars as the main currency and are exclusive of taxes the currency may change due to geolocalization. Local sales and shipping tax will be charged on all orders (where applicable).

From time to time, prices are subject to change in response to currency exchange rate changes, designer petitions and other commercial factors. The price applicable to your order will be the price current at the time your order is accepted.

Customers purchasing from a country served as DDP will incur relevant import duty and tax. These costs are included in the final purchase price. Customers purchasing from a country served as DDU will be charged for the items purchased and shipping costs only. Import duty or tax costs will be invoiced to you directly from DHL or an import broker appointed by you. We recommend you contact your local customs authority to determine a landed cost price prior to purchase completion. If you are a customer whose credit/debit card is not denominated in US Dollars, the final price will be calculated in accordance with the applicable exchange rate on the day your card issuer processes the transaction.

ACCEPTANCE OF YOUR ORDER

Once you have made your choice and your order has been placed, you will receive an email acknowledging the details of your order. This email is NOT an acceptance of your order, just a confirmation that we have received it.

Unless you cancel your order before the final checkout, acceptance of your order will be perfected upon completion of the packing of your order. Completion of the contract between you and ALTER will be perfected when start produciong the items you selected at which time you will receive a second email containing your tracking number, and confirming that your order is ready and starts shipping. The sale contract is therefore concluded in the State of Mexico, Mexico, and the language of the contract is English. Neither our third party payment processor nor our nominated courier has the authority to accept an order on behalf of ALTER.

We reserve the right not to accept your order in the event, for example, that we are unable to obtain authorization for payment, that shipping or production restrictions apply to a particular item, that the 3D model ordered or the material needed for production is out of stock or does not satisfy our quality control standards and is withdrawn, or that you do not meet the eligibility criteria set-out within the TOS.

Furthermore, we may refuse to process a transaction for any reason or refuse service to anyone at any time at our sole discretion. We will not be liable to you or any third party by reason of our withdrawing any merchandise from the Site whether or not that merchandise has been sold, removing, screening or editing any materials or content on the Site, refusing to process a transaction or unwinding or suspending any transaction after processing has begun.

Whilst every effort is made to make sure details on our website are accurate, we may from time to time discover an error in the pricing of products. If we discover an error in the pricing of a product in your order, we will let you know as soon as possible. We shall be under no obligation to accept or fulfil an order for a product that was advertised at an incorrect price and reserve the right to cancel such an order that has been accepted or is in transit.

Price - Payment

The price calculated by ALTER contains the cost for the services rendered by ALTER, the manufacturing of the product and the shipment of the product, excluding taxes. There is no insurance. Other duties and taxes applicable for the delivery of the product, even if not mentioned in the invoice sent by ALTER, will be paid by you. The price is calculated in EURO, DOLLAR or MXN (Mexican Peso). Offsetting against any kind of non-approved counter-claims as well as execution of right of retention of goods shall be excluded unless established in court, undisputed or recognised by ALTER. ALTER remains the sole owner of the products until their entire payment, transport and taxes included. Separate parts of a quote can be invoiced separately. ALTER,IT reserves the right to refrain from execution of further components of a quote, or of a following quote, or to terminate a delivery, as long as the outstanding issued invoices remain unpaid. ALTER retains full legal title to products until it has received in full all amounts due on those products and payment on any other products that you have ordered.

Payment can be made by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and any other methods which may be clearly advertised on the site from time to time. You can also choose to pay with PayPal. When selecting this option at checkout, you will be directed to the PayPal site to 'Log In' and review the amount shown before clicking 'Pay Now'. Once this transaction is complete, you will then return to ALTER. Payment will be debited and cleared from your account upon completion of the packing of your order by ALTER. You confirm that the credit/debit card that is being used is yours or that you have been specifically authorized by the owner of the credit/debit card to use it. All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorization by the card issuer.

If the issuer of your credit/debit card refuses to authorize payment to ALTER, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery. Occasionally, high demand causes us to run out of certain items. If we don't have an item that you have ordered in stock, we'll notify you by email immediately.

Sometimes, an item’s production material is out of stock and not expected to come back in stock, so we must cancel the item. In this case, if you paid with a credit/debit card, we will not charge you for the item or any taxes, shipping or handling charges.

We take reasonable care to make our Site secure. All credit/debit card transactions on this site are processed using Chase Paymentech, a secure online payment gateway that encrypts your card details in a secure host environment. If you are a registered ALTER user, we will securely store your credit/debit card details on our systems. These details will be fully encrypted and only used to process card transactions which you have initiated.

To help ensure that your shopping experience is safe, simple and secure ALTER uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.

Furthermore, we take reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorized access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the Site.

Term of delivery – Risk of transport

The average time required to produce the model is about 15 working days. This is a preliminary indication, but does not bind ALTER in any way. The actual delivery time is determined by a number of circumstances, for example (but not included to) working conditions applicable at the time the agreement is concluded, on the punctual delivery of the materials ordered by ALTER for the execution of the order.

Should your payment details be incorrect, the delivery will be postponed until the correct information is received from you. ALTER uses its discretion in selecting a reputable carrier and appropriate means of delivery. All risks during transport are borne by you.

Inspection - Returns – Replacements – Refunds

As the products are made immediately on the basis of your specifications, there is no right to return or possibility for cancelling your order within a certain period of time.

Upon delivery of the product, ALTER expects that you submit the product to an inspection. If, upon inspection, you feel that the product is not in conformity with the order, you should contact us as soon as possible and at the latest 14 days after your receipt of the product. In the case that you omit to exercise this control or decides to use a non-conform product, you dismiss ALTER from any liability for the possible consequences of the usage of this product.

You should not return products without having received an explicit request from ALTER to do so.

ALTER reserves the right to revoke and/or modify (part of) a quotation and/or order confirmation for technical reasons. The liability of ALTER vis-à-vis you for real and proven damage will, regardless the gravity of the failure, be limited to the price of the product directly related to the reason of the claim. All other liability of ALTER, such as that for consequential loss, other indirect loss and loss as a result of third party liability, is excluded.

Internet communications are capable of data corruption and therefore ALTER does not accept any responsibility for changes made to such communications after their dispatch. It may therefore be inappropriate to rely on information/advise contained in an e-mail without obtaining written confirmation of it. ALTER does not accept responsibility for any errors or problems that may arise through the use of Internet communication and all risks connected with sending commercially sensitive information relating to your business are borne by you. If you do not agree to accept this risk, you should notify ALTER in writing that e-mail is not an acceptable means of communication.

Warranty

ALTER warrants that the printed model shall substantially meet the features of the ordered model within the limitations of the current 3D printing technology. ALTER will decide solely about the building orientation of the model. A printed model cannot be refused because of the chosen printing orientation. Because of production reasons (different print orientation, composition of raw materials,...), there may be minor visual differences between multiple copies of one model.

If the printed model is made of precious metals, ALTER warrants that the model will be in accordance with the Mexican Precious Metals Marking Laws and Regulations.

ALTER MAKES NO WARRANTY OTHER THAN THOSE MADE EXPRESSLY IN THIS TERMS AND CONDITIONS TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. ALTER HEREBY EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

Other – General

No waiver

No omission or delay on the part of any party to insist on strict performance of any terms, or in exercising any right, power or remedy under these terms, shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise by any party of any right, power or remedy preclude the further or other exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or remedy. Without limitation, no waiver by any party of any breach of any provision of these terms shall be a waiver of any subsequent breach of that or any other term.

Circumstances beyond our reasonable control

ALTER will make every effort to perform its obligations under these terms. However, ALTER is not liable in case of force majeure. Force majeure implies any circumstance beyond the control of ALTER – even if this circumstance was foreseeable at the time the agreement was concluded – which permanently or temporarily prevents fulfilment of the agreement, including in particular transport failure, strikes, terrorist acts, war, supplier/transport issues, governmental or regulatory action and natural disasters. In the event of a delay, ALTER will perform our obligations as soon as reasonably possible.

Severability

If all or any part of one or more of these terms is or becomes illegal, invalid, unenforceable, or prohibited in any respect under any applicable law or regulation or found to be illegal or unenforceable in whole or in part under any applicable law, or regulation of any jurisdiction or country, or with respect to a certain category of persons, such provision or part shall to that extent, be deemed not to form part of the contract. The legality, validity or enforceability of the remainder of these terms or the remaining parts of the relevant term shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby (in relation to such jurisdiction or country, or category of persons). The legality, validity or enforceability of such provision under the applicable laws of any other jurisdiction or country or category of persons, shall not in any way be affected or impaired.

If any part of this disclaimer is held to be invalid, the remaining models will continue to be valid and enforceable.
