The LOOQAL Kidswear product safety policy sets out guidelines to highlight the types of products that Merchants might be restricted to sell via the LOOQAL platform due to product safety restrictions. Our policy states that Merchants should seek regular independent advice and assurances from the brand/manufacturer/importer from whom the product is purchased to determine whether the goods are permitted to be sold into the country and where applicable, the state, in which the buyer is located. While LOOQAL works closely with our Merchants, it is our Merchant’s responsibility to ensure that the goods they sell comply with all applicable product laws and regulations, such as Flammability Standards, Certificates of Compliance and Tracking Labels. Our Customer Service Advisors can liaise with the relevant Merchant if you require additional information.

If LOOQAL does waive a breach by you, we will only do so in writing (signed by one of our Directors), and that will not mean that LOQOAL will automatically waive any later breach by you.
(iii) Entire agreement – These Terms and Conditions constitute the entire agreement between you and LOOQAL and they supersede any and all earlier agreements between you and LOOQAL.
(iv) Events outside of our control – LOOQAL and the Merchants will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations to you if such failure or delay is caused by an event outside of our control.
