PROTECTING OUR BRANDS
Our Commitment Against Counterfeiting
Ritmo Mundo cares about the quality, workmanship and authenticity of every product we sell. Counterfeiting is illegal. Counterfeit products do not undergo inspection processes and often do not adhere to safety, health and wage regulations, including child labor and human rights laws. Counterfeiting has been linked to organized crime, child labor, and terrorism. Counterfeits can also harm the economy, including through lost revenues, jobs and taxes. It is estimated that counterfeiting costs the United States economy 250 to 500 billion dollars a year.
Our Brand Protection and Anti-Counterfeiting Efforts
To help protect our Ritmo Mundo brand and consumers from counterfeits, we work with law enforcement and customs officials in the United States and around the world to stop the shipment and sale of counterfeit goods. We also monitor online and offline channels for counterfeit merchandise.
Authentic Ritmo Mundo products are sold by Ritmo Mundo retail stores and online at www.ritmomundo.com or at authorized department stores and specialty stores. To find a store near you, please contact us at +1 310 246-3959.
We do not respond to requests to authenticate product or identify authorized distributors. Please note that if a deal or price sounds too good to be true, it probably is. We do not sell our products at flea markets, through street vendors, or in kiosks in malls.
Be wary of counterfeit websites which claim to be “official.” Websites offering counterfeit product often use misspellings of the actual word “Ritmo Mundo” in the URL. They may also imitate the layout and overall appearance of www.ritmomundo.com. These websites may also appear on search engine results.
Auction websites may have counterfeit goods available for purchase despite language on the product’s listing claiming that it is “authentic.”
