Terms of Service


Effective date August 1, 2017

Thank you for visiting nathan-home.com (the “Site”). Bluefyn Inc., which does business as Nathan James and Nathan James Home, operates the Site and provides services through the Site, but we’ll just go by “Nathan James”, ”we”, or “us”. We know these types of documents can get pretty dense, but it is important that you read this, so we’ll do our best to keep it an easy read. We will also just refer to both the Site and the services available through the Site as the “Services”.

Before using any of the Services, please read these Terms of Use and any other policies and notices on the Site (the “Terms”) and our Privacy Policy. Together, these materials contain terms, rules, and other guidelines related to your use of the Services. When you use the Services, you are agreeing to these terms, so please do not use the Services if you do not agree. Some parts of the Services may have other terms, guidelines, or rules, and if you use those parts, the additional terms will also apply. Because these terms are legally binding, we want to make sure you understand them, please contact us at Legal@nathanjames.com

Things move quickly in the world. so we will sometimes review these Terms to make sure they accurately reflect developments in current law and our business operations. We reserve the right to update and revise these Terms at anytime. We’ll make sure to also change the “Effective Date” at the top of this page so you can tell if these Terms have changed since your last visit. Please review these Terms regularly because once we post any changes, your continued use of the Services constitutes your acceptance of the revised Terms.

Eligibility
We only permit individuals who are at least 18 years old and can form legally binding contracts with us to use the Services. However, even non-adults deserve beautiful furniture, so if you are under 18 years old and would like to use the Services, you can, but only if a parent or legal guardian who is at least 18 years old supervises you. In all cases, the adult would be the user and is responsible for any and all activity.

Also, you can only use or receive the Services to the extent the laws of your jurisdiction or the United States do not bar you from doing so. Please make sure these Terms are in compliance with all laws, rules, and regulations that apply to you.

Your use of the Services means you represent and warrant that you meet all eligibility requirements we outlined in these Terms. We may still refuse to let certain people access or use the Services. We may also change our eligibility criteria.

We offer the Services only for personal, non-commercial use, and not for the use or benefit of any third party (unless you are a parent or legal guardian using the Services for your minor child).

Privacy
Our Privacy Policy details how we collect and use your information. Please review it if you would like to know more about how we collect, use, and treat your information.

Account Registration
You can maneuver most of the Services without creating a user account (“Account”). Other features, however, may require you to create an Account. If you create an Account, you are solely responsible for any activity that occurs through your Account. In order for us to provide you the best possible service, you agree to provide us with complete, accurate, and updated information for your Account at all times. If any information is incorrect or outdated, it can lead to errors or delays, for which we will not be responsible.

You should not share your Account information. You may never use another person’s Account or registration information for the Services without proper permission. Similarly, no one else should be able to use your Account without permission. You are solely responsible for keeping your Account and Account password secure and for any consequence resulting from your failure to do so. You should never publish, distribute, or post login information for your Account.

Although we hope to stay with you on your long journey to great home decor, we understand that your road may take you away from Nathan James for various reasons. If it does, you can delete your Account by emailing us atLegal@nathanjames.com

Intellectual Property
Tip: If you use the Services, you get beautiful furniture or home decor. You do not get any of our intellectual property.

RISK OF LOSS
Since we use multiple 3rd party carrier services and we have all seen what they can do with a package, we can’t be responsible for what occurs after we hand it off to them. All items purchased from Nathan James are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier.

RETURNS AND REFUNDS
Nathan James does not take title to returned items until such time as the item arrives at our fulfillment center. At our discretion, a refund may be issued without requiring a return, in this situation, Nathan James does not take title to the refunded item. For more information about our returns and refunds, please see our Returns Policy.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTIONS
We try hard but occasionally we can get it a fat finger and make some mistakes. Nathan James endeavours to be as accurate as possible, however, mistakes happen. Nathan James does not warrant those product descriptions or other content on Services is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a product offered by Nathan James is not as described, your sole remedy is to return the product in its unused condition according to the Returns Policy.

PRICING
Except where noted otherwise, the Retail Price, List Price or Suggested Price displayed for products on the Services represents the full retail price listed on the product itself, suggested by the manufacturer or supplier, or estimated in accordance with standard industry practice; or the estimated retail value for a comparably featured item offered elsewhere. The Retail Price, List Price or Suggested Price is a comparative price estimate and may or may not represent the prevailing price in every area on any particular day. For certain items that are offered as a set, the Retail Price, List Price or Suggested Price may represent "open-stock" prices, which means the aggregate of the manufacturer's estimated or suggested retail price for each of the items included in the set.

There are no restrictions on your ownership and license rights in your User Content unless you otherwise agree in writing to us.

If you don’t agree to these conditions, then please don’t provide the content and/or materials to us.

All content, including User Content and third-party content, is the responsibility of the party that creates it. Nathan James does not control or endorse any User Content or third-party content, and we make no claims or representations regarding any content we do not create. We may provide links to third-party sites or resources, but these links do not mean we endorse or have any associations with the third parties - unless otherwise stated. Please note that any moderators, forum managers, or hosts on the Services are not authorized as our spokespersons, and their views do not necessarily reflect those of Nathan James.

If any damage or loss results from your use of, reliance on, or any other connection between you and any content that any third-party makes available, you acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible or liable, directly or indirectly. When you access third-party resources on the Internet, you do so at your own risk. The internet is powerful, but as we know with great power comes great responsibility.

Designing and manufacturer furniture at the best possible price keeps us pretty busy around the Nathan James offices, but we still try to stay on top of things happening around the Services. We may review content on the Services, but we do not have an obligation to do so. We reserve the right to review, remove, block, or modify any content on the Services, including User Content, without notice or further obligation to you.
