PRODUCT USAGE: It is strongly advised that the customer follows the recommended usage time for waist trainers of 4 hours per day, broken down into two lots of two-hour sessions with at least a one-hour break in between, or as instructed on the website. Do not wrap yourself too tight during exercising; allow your body to breath normally. Make sure you feel comfortable.
SOCIAL MEDIA CONTENT: MASKATEER® may offer endorsement opportunities to social media influencers in order to reuse graphics, images, videos, posts, stories or any form of electronic content for use on social media platforms and websites, in order to promote or review its products, brand and certain topics relevant to the industry and market sectors it operates in. The consent and agreement from influencers come in the form of signed contracts, or specific payment of services, or a placement of an order, or by the offer of discount vouchers, or by the general consent of the consumer/influencer via email or chat messages on social media platforms. In addition customers and influencers are requested to send in "before and after" pictures to demonstrate the products' effectiveness, topics of health, exercise and weight loss and MASKATEER® have the right to display such content on its social media platforms and websites, which it deems to be appropriate.
MISUSE, ILLNESSES AND ALLERGIES DISCLAIMER: MASKATEER® is not responsible or liable for any misuse of the products and damages resulting from it. If you suffer from any illnesses or skin conditions, which waist training could affect, please consult with MASKATEER® team beforehand or your doctor. We strictly prohibit the use of our products in cases of illnesses, pregnancy or if you are under the age of 18. If you have allergies, check the product’s material and/or specifications beforehand and check with your doctor. Although MASKATEER® Tender Aroma Spray is made of organic compounds, you should check the content on the bottle beforehand. If you suffer any allergies from any of the ingredients, please do not use the spray. In any case, where your skin gets irritated and you suspect it may be the spray causing it, please consult with your doctor immediately. Tender Aroma Spray is exclusively made to clean your shapewear and for no other purposes. Please keep away from children and food.
WARRANTY & REPAIRS: Clothing, waist trainers, compression wear and shapewear products do not have a warranty if the products are worn, or if there are signs of wear and tear, on the products or if the consumer does not follow the instructions on how to wear or use the products, or if the size was incorrect for the consumer, or if the products were not maintained and taken care of as instructed in the marketing or website content. If a product is "faulty" or "damaged", MASKATEER must be notified in writing within 24 hours, usually via email or direct messaging on social media platforms. "Faulty" or "damaged" products must not be worn or tampered with and MASKATEER will either repair, exchange at no extra cost, or offer a refund for the "faulty/damaged" products and cover any shipping charges in receiving the products back from the consumer. For products that require repair, it is at the discretion of the MASKATEER Returns Team on whether to accept the repairs once the products are worn. MASKATEER has the right to charge for the repair and for the shipping to and from the consumer. MASKATEER also reserves the right to decline repairs and ask the consumer to repair themselves using third parties if the products have been worn or if this process is more cost-effective for the consumer. To maintain the longevity and quality of the products, especially high-compression products, MASKATEER strongly recommends consumers to invest in two products of the same type and alternate wearing them, and to not use the products over the recommended usage times as mentioned on MASKATEER's website and other marketing content or collateral.
COMPLIANCE: MASKATEER complies and confirms with The Data Protection Act, The Consumers Rights Act, The Consumer Contract Regulation 2013 Schedule 2 and 3 legislation and Trading Standards Laws in the United Kingdom and European Union and follows international laws and legislation concerning trade, consumer and company rights to fulfil its obligations to its customers and to fulfil its obligation as an international business and trading company.

“Force Majeure” events, such as natural disasters, health pandemics and policy changes from carriers may delay deliveries and returns and are out of the control of the sender/consignor. Sale items may be subject to delivery delays also, in which case consumers/customers will be notified.
Deliveries are undertaken by third parties such as DHL, DPD, Royal Mail, Hermes, Speedy.bg, EKONT, NOVA POSHTA, etc., hence MASKATEER® is not responsible for any shipping delays, parcel losses or damages, however MASKATEER® may help consumers/customers in resolving issues and claims.

Customs Fees may also apply to parcels being sent to certain countries. It is the responsibility of the consumer/customer/buyer/recipient to clear the goods in his/her country of import. This is NOT the responsibility of the sender/consignor (MASKATEER®).
We strongly advise to check the rules of importation, tax, Customs and Duties in your country, where the goods will be delivered to before making a purchase on the MASKATEER® website, as it is the consumer/customer/buyer/recipient’s responsibility to pay for any tax or Customs fees due when the goods arrive in your country.
If parcels are returned to the sender/consignor/seller, because the buyer/consumer/customer/consignee refused to pay the Customs duty and tax, the buyer/consumer/customer must pay for the products to be resent out to him/her again, as well as the cost of the products being returned by the carrier, including any additional Customs or admin charges or surcharges; or if a refund has been requested, all the above deductions apply before any refunds are made.
PURCHASE AND RETURNS POLICY
MASKATEER® offers a size exchange within 14 days of receiving the products. Products should be clean, with no stains, ripples or marks, with the tag still intact. The products should not have been worn or neglected, and should have been maintained well, in the same perfect resalable condition as first received by the recipient/customer/consumer, otherwise the items cannot be exchanged.
The customer must return the item at his/her own expense through using his/her own carriage/carrier or shipper. If MASKATEER® provided a return shipping label, it will be charged to the customer. The customer may also purchase shipping return labels from the MASKATEER® website and follow instructions on the RETURNS/EXCHANGE FORMS.
Once the items are returned, the MASKATEER® returns team will examine the products and approve the exchanges. The customer will be notified via email within 48 hours whether the exchanges have been approved. If the item is approved for exchange, the customer must pay for the shipping label for the new item to be shipped. In total the customer must pay both legs of the shipping of exchanged items.
Customers cannot use or apply any discount codes or rewards points on shipping labels as these charges are applied by third party shipping companies to deliver your parcels.
MASKATEER® products have base prices in GBP (Great British Pound Sterling £) on its website, hence orders paid in foreign currencies are subject to currency exchange rate fluctuations from third parties/merchants, such as PayPal, Klarna, Mollie and others that customers use. MASKATEER® only quotes estimate exchange rates and foreign currency prices on its website based on ECB (European Central Bank) average (not buy or sell) live rates and not the actual rates merchants offer their customers. MASKATEER® is not liable for any discrepancies or differences in the estimated foreign currency amount listed on the website or on invoices compared to the actual price the merchant has charged its customer in foreign currency to pay for the order in GBP (Great British Pound Sterling £), at the time of the transaction.
MASKATEER® do not offer product refunds or cancellations of orders, but in any cases of reimbursements MASKATEER® reserves the right to charge customers any shipping costs, return/exchange handling fees, admin and payment/merchant/card fees from any third parties, hence deducting them from the total amounts before any reimbursements, and an email to a consumer will explain the breakdown of charges in detail.
MASKATEER® also reserves the right to forward third party administrative (sur-)charges incurred during returns and/or exchanges to consumers, for example merchant fees and/or handling costs.
If the purchased item is faulty, damaged or defected, it will replaced it with a new garment providing the MASKATEER® support team is notified, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, within 24 hours of the consumer receiving the item(s) and providing the item is sent back to MASKATEER® within 7 days after the email notification. The item must have no signs of wear, tear or any kind of marks or ripples in the rubber latex, or it may be considered as worn. Once an item is worn it qualifies for wear and tear, and clothing, compression-wear, shapewear, underwear or lingerie items are not exchangeable or refundable after wear and tear. MASKATEER® products fit in each of the categories above.
The consumer is advised not to purchase a MASKATEER® product if he/she has any allergies or special medical conditions that may arise from wearing MASKATEER® products and it is strongly recommended that the consumer consults and obtains the approval from their Doctor or Physician before purchasing any of the MASKATEER® products. MASKATEER® products have been tested and are generally medically safe, however if you have special conditions or rashes always consult your doctor before purchase, as MASKATEER® do not offer refunds for allergies or other conditions conceived as the products touch the skin of its consumers and the product would no longer be resalable in such cases.
