These Terms and Conditions, together with the Terms of Use and Privacy Statement, govern the relationship between consumers who purchase products on this website or otherwise generally use this website (“you”) and Mars Petcare US, LLC (“Mars”).

Mars reserves the right to revise and amend these Terms and Conditions to reflect changes in technology, payment methods, applicable laws, regulatory requirements, and Mars system capabilities.  The Terms and Conditions applicable to your order are those accessible on this website and in force at the time of your order.

1. Orders

    By placing an order, you represent and warrant to Mars that you are of the age of majority in your State, and that the product is being ordered solely for your personal use, and you will not market, resell or otherwise distribute the product to any third party for commercial purposes.

    You may place an order directly on the website. Once your basket has been validated, you will have to choose the delivery address, and validate your means of payment, this last step formalizing the sales contract with Mars.

    Mars will acknowledge receipt of your order upon validation by sending you an order confirmation email.

    In certain cases, in particular for non-payment, incorrect address or any other problem related to your account, Mars reserves the right to block your order until the problem is solved.

    If one of the products you ordered is unavailable (for example due to stock availability), you will be informed and will be offered to either cancel the order or modify your order, for example by ordering a replacement product. If you choose to cancel your order, the amount you paid will be refunded through the payment method used during your order.

    Mars reserves the right to refuse or cancel your order for any reason, including limitations on quantities available for purchase, inaccuracies, or errors in product or pricing information, or problems identified through our efforts to avoid fraud and/or account abuse.

     a. Changing your order

    If you wish to change or cancel your order after confirming it on the website, you may contact Mars customer service. If Mars has not started filling your order, Mars may be able to change it based on your new instructions and send you a new confirmation email.  If Mars has started filling your order, Mars will not be able to change it and will notify you as such. 

    2. Account

    When placing your order, you must open a user account.

    If you have created a customer account on the website, you may access such account at any time.
