Welcome to The Styled by marie claire website ("the Site") which is owned, controlled and operated by Pacific Magazines Pty Limited (ABN 16 097 410 896) ("Pacific").

These Terms of Use are important and you should read them carefully. Your use of and access to the Site is conditional upon your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms of Use and the terms, conditions, notices and disclaimers contained in this document and elsewhere on the Site, and on you complying with all applicable laws of the Commonwealth of Australia (including its states and territories).

Your use of, and/or access to, the Site constitutes your agreement to these Terms of Use. Pacific reserves the right to amend the Terms of Use at any time.

Your use of the Site

When you visit the Site, you will be able to receive styling advice from our stylists via live chat.

It’s up to you whether you accept the advice of our stylists, but based on that advice, you will also have the opportunity to purchase clothing and other products via the fashion portal linked to our Site ("Fashion Portal").

The Products offered for sale on the Fashion Portal are sold by third parties ("Supplier’s Products").

If you place an order for a Supplier’s Product, you are placing an order with the Supplier of the Supplier’s Product, and not Pacific. All terms regarding price, delivery and returns are between you and the Supplier, not Pacific.

When you place an order to purchase a Supplier’s Product via this Site, you are making an offer directly to the Supplier.

If a Supplier accepts your order for the purchase of a Supplier’s Product, t hen an agreement is formed between you and the Supplier and you have rights directly and only against the Supplier with respect to that purchase, and not us. We are not a party to that agreement.
