Other than simple page caching, you may not download all or any portion of our site, or modify it in any way without the express consent of Warm Heart. Your right to make personal use of our site does not permit you resell products purchased from us or otherwise use our site for commercial purposes.

Your Warm Heart Online Account
If you create an account on our site, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password. You agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password. Warm Heart sells products for children, but does not permit purchases by individuals under 18. If you are under 18, please arrange with a parent or guardian to make credit card purchases for you. We reserve the right to refuse service, terminate accounts, remove or edit content, or cancel orders at our sole discretion.
Risk of Loss in Shipment
All items purchased from Warm Heart are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier.
We do our best to provide accurate, complete and current descriptions of our products. We also recognize that because most of our products are made by individual artisans, they can vary dramatically. If the product you receive is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in an unused condition.
Prices on our site reflect both the normal costs of doing business and Warm Heart’s special developmental mission. In brief, our price structure is composed of the following elements:
- Product cost (purchased at retail from the artisan)
- Handling (producer relations, product collection, packing)
Warm Heart splits the net profit 50:50 with our artisans. With our half of the profits, Warm Heart invests in the development of new microenterprises. Our artisans use their Warm Heart profits – which in many cases triple their earnings – for many things. They invest in growth, they buy into the Thai national social insurance system and they raise their own wages.
