By accessing Our Site and availing of the Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions. Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully before placing your order on www.trunc.ph®.
Our Site is an online marketing platform where various merchants, (the "Merchant/s") offer products to, and transact with, users of the Services. SSI may also act as the Merchant/s for selected products. Merchant/s may also refer to a party other than SSI. Orders placed on Our Site and shipped within or to the Philippines will be facilitated and fulfilled by the Merchant/s. SSI, as the platform operator, will merely facilitate payment on behalf of the Merchant/s and provide all relevant services necessary to fulfill the orders of the users. For the avoidance of doubt, the contract of sale of each user shall be with the Merchant/s only. Philippine taxes will be applied to your order, where applicable.
To use some of the services or features made available to you on this Site, you will need to register for an account. When you register, you are required to provide information such as your real name, a valid phone number, a valid e-mail address, and other requested information as indicated. You will likewise be required to provide billing and payment details. You warrant that all information that you provide on this Site are true, accurate, current and complete, and the billing and payment details provided are valid and correct.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password, and for restricting access to your account. You are solely responsible for all activities that occur under your account. You agree to notify SSI immediately of any unauthorized use of your account or breach of security.
The products are sold by the Merchant/s and SSI, as the platform operator, merely provides the Site and Services. All orders shall be deemed accepted and be irrevocable and unconditional upon placement in the Site. Each order accepted shall be governed by the contract of sale entered into directly and only between you and the Merchant/s.
The Merchant/s shall be entitled to process such orders without your further consent and without any further notice to you.
We make every effort to display the colors of our products included on this Site as accurately as possible. Because the colors that you see depend on your monitor, we do not guarantee that your monitor’s display of any color is accurate.
The selection of items online often varies from the items featured in our stores and in our store advertisements. We operate on a first-come, first-served basis policy. Supplies of items featured online are not subject to rain checks.

The Merchant/s will not be bound to supply the order until SSI has received cleared funds in full. All credit card payments will be received and processed via our payment gateways or providers of choice.
To the best of our abilities, we try to ensure that the prices posted on the Site are accurate, but this does not warrant that the pricing is always correct. Should your order have an error in price, we reserve the right to cancel your order at any point and notify you and refund to you in full the amount paid.
The products you have ordered shall be delivered to your specified address and shall be subject to shipping and handling charges as set out in the Site. Order Notifications will be sent to your email so make sure you provide a valid email address.

All delivery timeframes given are estimates only and delays can occur.
For the avoidance of doubt, an order which includes products from more than one (1) Merchant/s will be delivered within the delivery timeframe of each Mechant/s stated in the Site.
In the event that the products you have received are damaged, defective, or are of a fundamentally different nature from the products as described on the Site, you may return the product/s or request for a refund. See our Return Policy for more information.
Damaged, defective, or fundamentally different products can only be returned or refunded within the period stated on the relevant product display page. The Merchant/s shall be solely responsible for addressing such requests for return or refund, without delay and at its own cost.
