Please read these T&C carefully. By creating your Account (as defined below) and clicking the ‘I agree’ check box below, you confirm you have read, understood and accepted these T&C (and agree to be bound by them) and become a customer (“Customer”). Only a Customer will be entitled to procure the Services. By clicking ‘I agree’, you are therefore entering into a legally binding contract with us.
We reserve the right to change these T&C (at our sole discretion), from time to time, without any prior notice via telephone call/text or otherwise to the Customers. However, we will notify you of any amendments to these T&C by posting them on this Platform (and duly updating the T&C). The Services procured by you after any such update/change (including the continuation of any existing Services) shall be subject to and governed by the updated T&C (whilst Services procured prior to the change will be subject to and governed by the T&C in force at the relevant time). We will inform you of any change to these T&C by posting them on this Platform, and, as a secondary step, we may also (at our sole discretion) do so by notification to your registered e-mail address. It is however your responsibility to regularly review these T&C and any notices published on this Platform to ascertain your rights and obligations regarding the Services provided herein, and non-receipt of an e-mail notification (for whatsoever reason) shall not by itself prejudice the rights or interests of (or otherwise adversely affect) us.
We, via the Platform, facilitate the sale and fulfillment of orders which shall include but shall not be limited to products such as men’s, women’s and kid’s clothing (“Garments”), household and kitchen items, toys, home and Christmas decorations, gardening tools, automobile accessories, outdoor living and camping accessories, stationery/back-to-school items, electronic appliances and mobile phone accessories (“Products”) from us to the Customers, subject to Product availability as mentioned below (“Ordering Services”), including delivery services (“Delivery Services). For the avoidance of doubt, Customers are entitled to order and purchase the Products from Thilakma via the Platform and request Delivery Services for the Products from Thilakma via the Platform. Delivery Service Providers who are under agreement with us (and are selected by us) (“Delivery Service Providers”) will collect such Products from the Thilakma store located at No. 588, Negombo Road, Mahabage, Ragama (“Thilakma Store”), and deliver such Products to the respective Customer. In some instances, Thilakma shall deliver such Products from the Thilakma Store to the main office of the Delivery Service Provider, and the Delivery Service Provider shall deliver such Products from its main office to the respective Customer.
Ordering Services and Delivery Services together shall be hereinafter referred to as “Services”.
Customers shall pay for the Products directly to Thilakma via the payment gateway made available through the Platform (i.e. online payment) at the time of placing the order for the Products.
In relation to Delivery Services, the prices mentioned on the Platform exclude delivery fees, which will be added to the total amount due and payable by the Customer. Delivery fees may vary depending on the delivery location, weight and dimensions of the relevant Product. We will notify you of the approximate delivery fee at the time you place your order and the same will be added to the total amount due. The prices for the Products on the Platform shall be inclusive of applicable taxes where required by law.
Once an order has been placed and the Customer has confirmed the order via the Platform, we shall send an invoice to the Customers registered email address and an order confirmation to the Customers registered telephone number via text confirming the same.
In order for you to procure the Services, you must either register for and maintain an active personal customer account or register an active account as a guest on a ‘one-time basis’ ("Account"). You must be at least 18 years of age to be permitted to open an Account. Account registration requires you to submit to us certain personal information, such as your Full name, NIC, address, city, province and mobile phone number etc. You agree to maintain/insert accurate, complete, and up-to-date information in your Account. Your failure to maintain/insert accurate, complete, and up-to-date Account information may result in your inability to access or use the Services (including purchasing and/or receiving any Products). You are responsible for all activity that occurs under (or utilising) your Account, and you agree to maintain the security and secrecy of your Account username (if any) and passwords (including one-time passwords) at all times. Furthermore, you may only possess one Account.
Once an order has been placed by the Customer and the same has been confirmed by us via email, text message or otherwise, such an order cannot be cancelled by the Customer.
Occasionally, we may cancel your orders for various reasons such as issues in relation to Product availability. In the event of a cancellation by us, the relevant invoice price, paid via the Payment Processor, will be refunded in full to the Customer within seven (7) days. However, we shall not be held responsible if the Payment Processor fails to make the refund within such period.
We will use our best endeavors to ensure that the relevant Delivery Service Provider delivers the Products to the Customers within 5 business days (during working hours only) from an order being duly processed (or within such other time-frame as is notified to you at the time the order is processed). However, you may occasionally experience delays at times due to reasons beyond our control, such as delays caused by the us and/or the Delivery Service Providers arising from high demand or supply/availability related issues. We shall not bear any responsibility for delays caused by the Delivery Service Providers.
