Order Placement and Order Acceptance Policy
By completing and submitting the electronic order form you are making an offer to purchase goods which, if accepted by us, will result in a binding contract. Only when we review and accept your order, we will dispatch the items that you purchased.
Your emailed receipt of an order confirmation signifies that we have been notified of your offer to purchase the selected items. It does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell unless we accept the order and dispatch the items. Only when your order is shipped by us, it means that we have confirmed and accepted your offer to buy a product or a service.
This Website reserves the right to cancel any order and to decline the acceptance of any order. Item availability and prices are subject to change at any time, without notice. We reserve the right to limit quantities, and at any time after receipt of your order, without prior notice to you, to supply less than the quantity ordered of any item.
Sometimes, we may require additional information and/or verification before accepting and processing any order.
We reserve the right to cancel and refund any order at discretion of Management.
Sometimes, we may send you a gift with your order. You might or might not be able to select your gift at the time of placing your order. If the gift you selected at checkout is not available, or for any other reason not possible to be sent to you, we reserve the right to send you a different gift or no gift altogether. All gifts are free of charge and as such they are not part of your order. Gifts are not eligible for replacement or refunds. Gifts cannot be sent separately without an order. Gifts can be cancelled at any time at the discretion of Management. Sending gifts with orders is done entirely at the discretion of Management.
Products and Packaging
The images of each product on our websites are for illustration purposes only. Although we have made efforts to display the appearance of each product accurately, we cannot guarantee that the image you see on your computer will accurately reflect the appearance of that product. The product which we deliver to you may vary slightly from the images on our website.
We deliver our services and can ship our products to almost any country in the world. In same cases there might be additional information that we might need from you in order to be able to send your order.
Please note that there are restrictions on some products for certain international delivery destinations, so please review the information on that page carefully before ordering any product.
If you order a product for delivery to one of the international delivery destinations, your order may be subject to import duties and taxes which are applied when the delivery reaches that destination. There may also be administration charges imposed by foreign customs authorities or by our delivery agents. Please note that we have no control over these charges and we cannot predict their amount.
The recipient is responsible for payment of the import duties, taxes and charges referred to in above. Please contact the customs office in the destination country for further information before placing your order.
You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country from which the order is placed and of the country for which the shipment is destined. We will not be liable or responsible if you break any such law.
Once you make your selection, shipping will be added automatically to your order at checkout. We make every effort to ensure that all products arrive to their final destination as quickly and as safely as possible, and in the best condition possible.
We offer different shipping options depending on your destination country and depending on your destination, we may offer to use a different postal or courier service to ship your order. The shipping options may change at any time based on availability and other factors. For this, you should make no assumption for the type of postal or courier service that your order is shipped with. When placing your order, you choose the shipping service that best suits your needs and if for any reason we cannot ship using that shipping option, then you agree and entrust us to ship your order in a different way.
Wherever possible, we recommend that you choose a shipping option with tracking. This way you can easily check the progress of your package. If you select a shipping option with no tracking, it will not be possible to get updates on the progress of your package and if it gets delayed for some reason there will be no way to know why or what happened. If you opt for a non-tracking shipping option, you agree to free us from any liability and not to hold us responsible for packages not-received. If you opt for a non-tracking shipping option, you agree not to challenge or dispute the charge on your card or PayPal account for that order and you accept any and all liability if it is lost in transit.
Once we ship out your order, and once it is passed onto the postal service, then it is is no longer in our power to control the speed or the date of delivery. In some occasions we might be able to alter some of the properties of the shipment (i.e. delivery time, delivery address, etc.) however this entirely depends if the courier used allows for that and on our ability to do so.
You should make no assumption about the speed and delivery of your orders based on the description of the shipping method you choose at checkout. The speed of delivery depends on a combination of factors, including the shipping service used, your delivery address, your order, and more. Whenever in doubt or have questions about shipping, do not hesitate to contact us.
When To Expect Your Order
In most cases we are able to process and send your order on the very same day it is placed. We ship almost all orders within 5 days of their placement.
Delivery times depend on the carrier and the post couriers – international and in your country. Once we send your order out we no longer have control over your parcel, the couriers do. We suggest you place your order with tracking option so you can follow the progress or your parcel. If you choose to place your order without a tracking option you agree to not hold us responsible it your package is delayed or lost.
We may or may not notify you via email when your order is shipped. You can check your order status at any time on the Track Orders page or in your Account. Keep in mind that not all couriers provide live tracking options so it is possible that partial or no information about your is displayed. You can always contact us to inquire about your order status.
We offer several subscription products on our website. If you choose to purchase a subscription product you agree to us billing you automatically every subscription period for the duration of your subscription. The minimum required subscription duration, unless otherwise specified, is 6 months.
Termination of Subscriptions
You can terminate your subscription within the first 30 days from the date you sign up. If you choose to cancel your subscription after the 30 days period had passed, we may seek redemption to the amount of your remaining subscription. If, however, you are unhappy with our service, you can request an earlier termination. Granting earlier termination requests is entirely at our Management discretion. All termination requests must be sent to us in writing over email or using the form on the Contact Us page.
We make every effort to provide you with current inventory status and product availability information. Due to the fact that our online store consists of rare products, an item may not always be in stock. We will accept orders for out-of-stock items. If the item you order is not in stock, it will be placed on backorder and shipped to you when it becomes available. On orders with backordered items, the total shipping charges are included with the first shipment. Shipping charges are non-refundable. A backorder may be canceled at ANY time prior to shipping.
Our products come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee promise. If you are not satisfied in any way by your purchase and if you cannot return the item, please let us know and we will find a way to make things right for you. See Shipping and Returns for more info.
100% Guarantee Promise
We believe that you shouldn’t pay for anything that you do not like. We also believe that trust, respect and courtesy is a two-way street. We expect our clients to value the relation with us as much as we value the one with them. Customers who have been unfair to us, not straightforward in dealing with us, have tried to undermine us, or have tried to break the customer-business relationship with their actions in any other way are not eligible for the 100% guarantee promise. That is why granting the 100% satisfaction guarantee promise is entirely at the discretion of our Management.
