accuracy of information; cosmetic sales only
We attempt to be as accurate as possible when describing our products; however, to the extent permitted by applicable law, we do not warrant that the product descriptions, colors or other content available on the Sites are accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free.

your obligations and responsibilities
comments, reviews and submissions
The Sites provide you and other users an opportunity to submit, post, display, transmit and/or exchange information, ideas, opinions, reviews of our products photographs, images, video, creative works or other information, messages, transmissions or material to us, the Site, and on Third Party Sites (a “Post” or “Posts”). You must be a registered user to submit a Post. Please stay and topic and use the Posts to provide meaningful and respectful information for others. Repeating the same Post in multiple places is not permitted and links to obscene or offensive sites is also strictly prohibited.
Posts do not reflect the views of Tarte; and Tarte does not have any obligation to monitor, edit, or review any Post on the Sites. Tarte assumes NO responsibility or liability arising from the content of any Posts nor for any error, defamation, libel, slander, omission, falsehood, obscenity, pornography, profanity, danger, or inaccuracy contained in any information within such Posts on the Sites. You are strictly prohibited from making any Posts that are unlawful, threatening, libelous, defamatory, obscene, scandalous, inflammatory, pornographic, or profane material that could constitute or encourage conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any law. Tarte will fully cooperate with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing Tarte to disclose the identity of anyone posting any such information or materials.
Tarte may moderate any Posts and has the right (but not the obligation) to remove a Post that, in Tarte’s reasonable judgment, violates these Terms and Conditions. Tarte may also terminate a registered user’s account or right to make Posts. Tarte reserves the right to remove a Post if it contains any of the following content: Commercial solicitations or advertising for other products, offers or websites; any content or materials you do not own or which you have not secured the necessary rights; contact information of any kind including email addresses, URLs, phone numbers, and physical addresses; critical comments about other people or their Posts and discussions of medical conditions or claims of medical effectiveness.
If you have questions, comments or feedback about customer service issues (delivery, pricing, etc.), please contact our New York office via email firstname.lastname@example.org . Those types of concerns are not appropriate for a Post.
It is strictly prohibited to link other sites with this website without Tarte's prior written permission. Tarte has no responsibility and assumes no liability for the unaffiliated sites to which it is linked, including but not limited to the content or web pages or other, products, services or materials on the site linked to the Sites or posted to the Sites by anyone other than Tarte. We may permit some links for convenience (such as to Third Party Sites where we make content available), but it is not an endorsement by Tarte of the referenced content, product, service, supplier or Third Party Site. Please note that the rules and privacy policies of linked sites (including Third Party Sites) may differ from those of Tarte and should be reviewed by you when you use the link to access the other site.
Tarte may use the APIs of various third party websites, including the Third Party Sites. Our Sites are not verified by the Third Party Sites.
electronic gift cards
eGift Cards (which may also be referred to as electronic gift cards, electronic gift certificates or eGift certificates) can be redeemed only online at the Sites. Recipients of eGift Cards must have e-mail and access to the Internet in order to receive and redeem their online eGift Card.
Promotional offers and discounts cannot be applied to the purchase of eGift Cards. The value of eGift Card purchases are not used to determine promotional thresholds. Free gifts, specials, deluxe samples are not valid when purchasing an eGift Card.
The use of eGift Cards is subject to these Terms and Conditions and applicable law. eGift Cards may only be used to purchase merchandise on the Sites and cannot be used to purchase other eGift Cards. Tarte will not honor eGift Cards sold by any other vendor or person other than Tarte. eGift Cards cannot be used at other retailers to purchase Tarte products.
When you purchase an online eGift Card from the Sites, we will automatically send the recipient an e-mail within 24 hours, including the eGift Card code and instructions for use on the Sites. The code should be entered onto the Payment Information page during the checkout process. If the amount of the order exceeds the amount of the eGift Card, the recipient will need to use a credit card to pay for the balance of the order. If any online store credit is available to the recipient, then the store credit will automatically be applied first.
Except as required by law, eGift Cards are not redeemable for cash.
eGift Cards purchased by our customers do not expire and are not subject to any fees or charges. If we issue promotional eGift Cards or coupon codes in the future as a benefit to the members of our loyalty program, or otherwise, those promotional eGift Cards or coupon codes may be subject to an expiration date.
You can use one eGift Card towards the purchase of your order. Redemption of multiple eGift Cards for one order is not available at this time.
If you misplace or delete your eGift Card, send an e-mail to our Customer Service department and we will resend the redemption code for the eGift Card to the original recipient address. Please remember to include the recipient e-mail address and/or the order number with which it was purchased. If you sent the eGift Card to the wrong e-mail address, please contact us at email@example.com or (855) 968-2783. Our representatives will only be able to resend your eGift to a different recipient if it has not been redeemed.
Promotional eGift Cards and coupons cannot be resent or recovered if deleted.
If your eGift Card code is valid and unredeemed but not functional, our sole obligation will be to replace the eGift Card.
eGift Cards that have already been sent but have not yet been redeemed can be returned to the original purchaser's credit card. The eGift Card is automatically cancelled upon the return. Please note that we cannot recall an eGift Card e-mail after it has been sent.
If the merchandise purchased with an eGift Card is returned, an online store credit will be issued to the gift recipient for the full amount of the merchandise return. Tarte does not offer exchanges or cash refunds for eGift Card purchases. Any funds charged to a credit card will be automatically credited to the same card.
In addition to any other remedies, Tarte reserves the right to close your account or require an alternative form of payment if a fraudulently obtained eGift Card is presented for redemption.
