Shop By Faith partners with some of the most inspiring brands (Vendors) in order to offer you the ultimate destination to shop through the Site. We operate a multi-site shopping cart and checkout service (Multi-Site Checkout), allowing you to add multiple items from various Vendors to your shopping bag and have the ease of checking out all these items once on the Site. In so doing, Shop By Faith acts as the “Merchant of Record” for these transactions.
Shop By Faith accepts a variety of payment options via our Multi-Site Checkout service, including credit and debit cards. You will be asked to enter your shipping address and billing/payment details in order to purchase an item. We currently use Stripe, a third party payment process provider, to process certain credit card and debit card transactions you make through the Site. When you place an order, Stripe will authorize your credit or debit card and process the payment transaction on our behalf. If you want to change your existing payment card details, you can do so in the Credit Cards section of your My Account page. You confirm that the credit or debit card that is being used is yours or that you have been specifically authorized by the owner of the credit or debit card to use it. All credit or debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorization by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorize payment, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.
We take reasonable care to make the Site secure. All credit and debit card transactions made through our Multi-Site Checkout service are processed using our secure 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, we use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. Please note that, while 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, in the absence of negligence on our part we are not liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorized access to any information you provide when accessing or ordering through the Site. Furthermore, we are not responsible, and have no liability, for transactions which are made directly on Partner Brand websites.

The images of the products on the Site are for illustrative purposes only. Although we attempt to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that your computer’s display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the items. If we discover an error in the price of any items that you have ordered, we will inform you of this as soon as possible and, give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you, your order will be treated as cancelled. If you cancel and you have already paid for the items, you will receive a full refund.

YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR ANY DISPUTE WITH US IS TO DISCONTINUE YOUR USE OF THE SITE AND THE SERVICES. IN NO EVENT SHALL OUR LIABILITY, OR THE LIABILITY OF OUR SHOP BY FAITH AFFILIATES OR PARTNER BRANDS, FOR ANY AND ALL CLAIMS RELATING TO THE USE OF THE SITE AND SERVICES EXCEED THE GREATER OF US €91.00 OR THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF FEES THAT YOU PAID US DURING THE PREVIOUS ONE-YEAR PERIOD FOR THE SPECIFIC PURCHASE AT ISSUE. YOU AND ORCHARD MILE AGREE THAT THIS SECTION, LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, IS AN AGREED ALLOCATION OF RISK BETWEEN YOU AND SHOP BY FAITH. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT, ABSENT YOUR AGREEMENT TO THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, SHOP BY FAITH WOULD NOT PROVIDE THE SITE OR SERVICES TO YOU.

Reservation of Rights and Release
Shop By Faith reserves the right, but has no obligation, to monitor, or take any action we deem appropriate regarding disputes that you may have with other customers of ours or any Partner Brands. To the extent the law permits, you release us from any claims or liability related to any content or user contributions posted on the Site and from any claims related to the conduct of any other customers of ours.
Any and all controversies, disputes, demands, counts, claims, or causes of action (including the interpretation and scope of this clause, and the arbitrability of the controversy, dispute, demand, count, claim, or cause of action) between you and Shop By Faith shall exclusively be settled through binding and confidential arbitration.
Arbitration shall be subject to the Federal Arbitration Act and not any state arbitration law. The arbitration shall be conducted before one commercial arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving commercial contract disputes from the American Arbitration Association (AAA). As modified by this Agreement, and unless otherwise agreed upon by the parties in writing, the arbitration will be governed by the AAAs Commercial Arbitration Rules and, if the arbitrator deems them applicable, the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, the Rules and Procedures).
You are thus GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend your rights EXCEPT for matters that you file in small claims court. Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR and NOT a judge or jury. You are entitled to a FAIR HEARING, BUT the arbitration procedures may be SIMPLER AND MORE LIMITED THAN RULES APPLICABLE IN COURT. Arbitrator decisions are as enforceable as any court order and are subject to VERY LIMITED REVIEW BY A COURT.
You and Shop By Faith must abide by the following rules: (1) ANY CLAIMS BROUGHT BY YOU OR SHOP BY FAITH MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTYS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING; (2) THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSONS CLAIMS, MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING, AND MAY NOT AWARD CLASS-WIDE RELIEF; (3) in the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to costs of litigation, Shop By Faith will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to the cost of litigation; (4) Shop By Faith also reserves the right in its sole and exclusive discretion to assume responsibility for all of the costs of the arbitration; (5) the arbitrator shall honor claims of privilege and privacy recognized at law; (6) the arbitration shall be confidential, and neither you nor we may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award; (7) the arbitrator may award any individual relief or individual remedies that are permitted by applicable law; and (8) each side pays its own solicitor fees and expenses unless there is a statutory provision that requires the prevailing party to be paid its fees and litigation expenses, and, in such instance, the fees and costs awarded shall be determined by the applicable law.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, either you or Shop By Faith may bring an individual action in small claims court. Further, claims of defamation, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and infringement or misappropriation of the other partys patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secret shall not be subject to this arbitration agreement. Such claims shall be exclusively brought in the country or crown courts located in London, United Kingdom. Additionally, notwithstanding this agreement to arbitrate, either party may seek emergency equitable relief before the country or crown courts located in London, United Kingdom in order to maintain the status quo pending arbitration, and hereby agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the courts located within London, the United Kingdom for such purpose. A request for interim measures shall not be deemed a waiver of the right to arbitrate.
With the exception of subparts (1) and (2) in this Section (prohibiting arbitration on a class or collective basis), if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Rules and Procedures, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting part was not contained herein. If however, either subpart (1) or (2) in this Section is found to be invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor Shop By Faith shall be entitled to arbitration. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, the dispute shall be exclusively brought in the country or crown court located in London, United Kingdom.
For more information on AAA, the Rules and Procedures, or the process for filing an arbitration claim, you may visit the AAA website at http://www.adr.org.
We may change or modify this Agreement from time to time without notice to you. You can review the most current version of this Agreement at any time at the Site. Your continued use of the Site and/or Services after the Agreement has been changed and posted to the Site constitutes your acceptance of the modified Agreement.
We may assign all or part of our rights or duties under this Agreement in connection with a sale of all or substantially all the assets of Shop By Faith (including the Site and operations) to a third party. You may not assign this Agreement without our prior written consent.
If any part of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed to reflect the parties original intent, and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect.
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between Shop By Faith and you with respect to your use of the Site, materials, content and Services, and it supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals between Shop By Faith and you with respect thereto.
Any failure by Shop By Faith to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
