DISCLAIMER

RESPONSIBILITY FOR SECURE ADDRESSES & COLLECTION OF PARCELS

Our shipping service does not require a signature. The courier will leave your order at the front door, letterbox, or secure location. Once the parcel has been delivered to your shipping address, The SUS&TAIN Store takes no responsibility for any damage or theft that may occur. If you will not be present to accept your delivery or your address is not safe to have a parcel left unattended, we recommend using a business address or an alternative secure address.

RETURN TO SENDER

The SUS&TAIN Store does not take responsibility for uncollected parcels that are returned to sender, or incorrect addresses that are returned to sender. If your tracking states that the parcel has been delivered, please first check with your local post office (either by phone or dropping into the local shop) before contacting us. Alternatively, you can track your order with Royal Mail online

INCORRECT ADDRESS

If you accidentally provided the wrong address please email us immediately: susandtainstore@gmail.com

Unfortunately, if your parcel has already been shipped we are unable to intercept the parcel to change the address and the cost to have the parcel reshipped will be at the customers expense. The address can only be changed if your order has not been shipped. 

IMPORT LIABILITIES AND TAXES

Please note, The SUS&TAIN Store does not cover import liabilities that may be applied by the government of the destination country. We cannot accept any responsibility for customs delays, duties or taxes that may apply in the destination country. Under no circumstances will The SUS&TAIN Store accept any orders back due to rejection of customs charges. 

The SUS&TAIN Store is not responsible if customers are not notified by their country’s postal authority that items are awaiting payment of customs duties and taxes.

SHIPPING CHARGES

Shipping charges are non-refundable. If you received FREE shipping on your order and decide to return/refund your items, you will be refunded the order amount minus the actual cost for shipping.
