7. CUSTOMS & EXCISE NOTICE
IMPORT DUTIES, TAXES AND CHARGES are NOT INCLUDED in the item price or Shipping charges. These charges are the Customer’s responsibility.
We regret that we are unable to supply Incense Sticks/Cones to any country outside of the UK as they are classed as "Flammable Items" by the Royal Mail and are therefore prohibited goods.
Before placing an order, please check with your country's Customs & Excise Department to determine the legal requirements for the importation of goods into your country, as well as any cost implication. The Customer should also be aware of possible Customs controls, such as:
- duty and Goods & Services Taxes (GST) may be payable;
- it may be a prohibited import and require a permit before it is allowed into the country; or
- it may be a prohibited import and not allowed into the country under any circumstance and will be seized by Customs for destruction.
Delivery to non-UK/European Union countries may result in import duties being required to be paid on receipt of the goods, or in the case of prohibited items, seizure of goods. You agree under our terms and conditions of sale to be liable for these duties and in the case of seizure to accept full legal responsibility and to acknowledge that a refund under either of these circumstances will not be made.
8. RETURNS & REFUNDS
- Under the Consumer Contract Regulations it is your right to cancel an order (and return goods if they have been delivered to you) within 14 calendar days of ordering, this is known as the "cooling off" period. You must return the goods within the next 14 days of notifiying us of your intention to return them. If the item proves to be faulty after this time, please contact TRIBES AND VIBES in the first instance.
- Goods can only be returned by prior arrangement with us. Please contact us in the first instance to let us know that there is a problem with your order, and we will give you instructions for returning the item(s). TRIBES AND VIBES will not accept responsibility for goods which are returned without prior arrangement, and are subsequently lost in transit.
- NON-DAMAGED ITEMS: it is the Customer’s responsibility to notify us in the first instance and return the item within 14 days (via Royal Mail Signed-For Delivery or equivalent Non-UK trackable service) and we will then refund the full amount, providing the item is in the same condition, as when it was despatched by us, ie. unworn and with the immediate cellophane packaging / plastic packaging / lip cards in tact. Shipping costs will be the responsibility of the Customer if items are not damaged.
- DAMAGED ITEMS: it is the Customer’s responsibility to notify us in the first instance and return the item within 30 days (via Royal Mail Signed-For Delivery or equivalent Non-UK trackable service) and we will then refund the full amount of the cost of the item. In addition TRIBES AND VIBES will refund the Buyer's Shipping costs of returning the faulty item.
- EARRINGS are packaged in a plastic sleeve so that they can be inspected without opening the original packaging. For reasons of Hygiene, we can only accept Earring Returns if the original plastic packaging remains unopened (box or foam wrapping excluded) and are returned in that condition. We will also accept Earring Returns if they are damaged on arrival.
- Any unopened and unused item can be returned within 14 days for a full refund. Returned items will be checked and if found to be used no refund will be given and a charge to re-post will be made.
- The Buyer becomes the owner of the goods when they accept delivery, and will remain the owner of the goods until they are returned to TRIBES AND VIBES and a refund is issued. It is the Buyers responsibility to provide a secure and well-packaged return. Refunds cannot be given if the goods are not received at TRIBES AND VIBES. It is therefore in your own interest to return goods via Royal Mail's Signed-For Service (within the UK), or NON-UK equivalent, so that the Royal mail (or equivalent non-UK postal company) can assist you with finding the pacakge if it goes missing in the post. Royal Mail's Signed-For service will add £1.10 to the standard price of a 1st or 2nd class "large letter" stamp.
- We are not VAT registered, therefore prices shown do not include VAT, nor is VAT added at the checkout.
- TRIBES AND VIBES reserves the right to increase the price of an item at any time without prior notice.
