This website is operated by Eighteen Fifty One. Throughout the site, the terms “I”, “me”, “we”, “us” and “our” refer to Eighteen Fifty One.  Eighteen Fifty One offers this website, including all information, tools and services available from this site to you, the user, conditioned upon your acceptance of all terms, conditions, policies and notices stated here.

By visiting our site, and/or purchasing something from us, you engage in our “Service” and agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions (“Terms of Service”, “terms”), including those additional terms, conditions and policies referenced herein and/or available by hyperlink.  These Terms of Service apply to all users of the site, including without limitation, users who are browsers, vendors, customers, merchants and/or contributors of content.

Questions about these Terms of Service should be sent to us at cassie@eighteenfiftyone.com

All Eighteen Fifty One releases are limited edition. Some styles may only be made in a handful of pairs, and usually there are no more than 10 in each lace and colour combination. In the event that two or more customers place an order for the last of a particular lace (and my website oversells the lace) I will allocate the lace to the first order and contact subsequent customers so that they may either select an alternative, or arrange a refund.  In some cases I may be able to source more of the same lace and I will let you know as soon as possible.

2.1. Accuracy of Billing and Account Information

I reserve the right to refuse any order placed with Eighteen Fifty One.  I reserve the right to limit or prohibit orders that, in my sole judgement, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers or distributors.

I may, in my sole discretion, limit or cancel quantities purchased per person, per household or per order. These restrictions may include orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same credit card, and/or orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address.  In the event that we make a change to, or cancel an order, I may attempt to notify you by contacting the email and/or billing address or phone number provided at the time the order was placed.

You agree to provide current, complete and accurate purchase and account information for all purchases made at our store.  You agree to promptly update your account and other information, including your email address and credit card numbers and expiration dates, so that we can complete your transactions and contact you as needed.

For more detail, please review our Returns Policy.

All prices are listed in Australian Dollars and are subject to change without notice.

If you are purchasing in another currency, PayPal will complete the currency conversion and exchange. You will be responsible for any fees incurred during this PayPal process.

3..1 Credit Cards, Debit Cards and Paypal

Eighteen Fifty One uses PayPal to process credit and debit card transactions as it provides a safe and secure method of payment and information exchange. You can use the PayPal website to pay via credit or debit card, even if you do not have a PayPal account.  See the Paypal Safety and Security website for details regarding their Buyer Protection Policies.

3.2. Afterpay

Australian residents can select Afterpay  as their method of payment during checkout.  Afterpay offers you a simple, interest-free payment option, allowing you to pay off your purchase in four equal instalments, due every fortnight. Your fortnightly payments will be taken from your nominated debit or credit card automatically and you will get your items straight away – it’s like a layby but without the waiting!

I have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colours and images of the products that appear in my online store, however; I cannot guarantee that your computer or device monitor’s display of any colour will be accurate.

I reserve the right to limit the total quantities of any products or services that I offer. All descriptions of the products or product pricing are subject to change at anytime, without notice, at the sole discretion of us.  I reserve the right to discontinue any product at any time.  Any offer for any product or service made on this site is void where prohibited.

Eighteen Fifty One products are designed to be worn as daywear for babies and children. Your child should not be left unsupervised while wearing their bloomers, their belts or their playsuits, as the ribbons may cause entrapment or strangulation if not tied securely. Eighteen Fifty One products should never be worn as sleepwear.

Your privacy is important to me, and any details you provide are used solely for the purpose of processing and shipping your order. Your information will never be sold nor passed onto a third party, nor do I record any transaction details outside of the scope of what is provided to me by PayPal and Afterpay in my account history.

I use PayPal and Afterpay to process all Eighteen Fifty One transactions as they provides a safe and secure method of payments and information exchange.  See the PayPal Safety and Security website or Afterpay Terms website  for more details regarding how your information and purchases are processed and protected.

6.1. What do we do with your information?

When you purchase something from our store, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address.

When you browse our store, we also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system.

6.2. Email Marketing

With your permission, we may send you emails about our store, new products and other updates. You may opt out of this communication at any time by following the links to unsubscribe, or by contacting me at cassie@eighteenfiftyone.com

6.3. How do you get my consent?

When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place and order, arrange for a delivery, or return a purchase, we imply that you consent to us collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.

If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no.

If, after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at anytime by contacting us at cassie@eighteenfiftyone.com or mailing us at Eighteen Fifty One, PO BOX 1020, Sunnybank Hills, QLD 4109 Australia

6.4. Disclosure

We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so, or if you violate our Terms of Service.

6.5. Third-Party Services (like PayPal and Afterpay)

In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.

However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide them for your purchase-related transactions.

For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.

In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either of us.  So, if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider, or its facilities are located.

As an example, if you are located in Australia and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation.

Once you leave our store’s website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy, or by our website’s Terms of Service.

If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using a secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption.  Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.

If our store is acquired or merged with another company, your information may be transferred to the new owners (in accordance with the Privacy Act of 1988) so that we may continue to sell products to you.

You agree that your comments will not violate any right of any third-party, including copyright, trademark, privacy, personality or other personal or proprietary right. You further agree that your comments will not contain libellous or otherwise unlawful, abusive or obscene material, or contain any computer virus or other malware that could in any way affect the operation of this Service or any related website.  You may not use a false-email address, pretend to be someone other than yourself, or otherwise mislead us or third-parties as to the origin of any comments.
