Estimated Delivery Times And "Product Availability"
The estimated shipping times displayed by our shopping cart are generated and provided by the respective carriers.
We cannot be held liable for any deviations from the estimated delivery times provided by USPS, UPS or other carriers website interfaces.
Product availability is based on our typical stocking strategy, and reflects the period of time that we typically will have an item packaged and in the carriers possession. Items marked "Typically ships within 1 business day" are standard stock items. We make every effort to have these items in stock at all times, but due to unusual demand, manufacturer issues, or certain combinations of options on package purchases, it is possible that we may be temporarily out of stock on a particular item. We will make every effort to notify you if items we cannot ship in the stated typical timeframe; however, we cannot be held liable for delays in the shipment of these items.

You should contact you local customs office for more information. All costs incurred on a refused delivery for any reason, including high import fees or restrictions imposed by the country of destination are the responsibility of the customer.
It is the customer's responsibility to know the laws regarding product usage and importation of products in the destination country, and the customer will be considered the "Importer of Record". Our products are consistent with the safety standards, specifications, and labeling requirements based on the laws of the United States. It is the customers responsibility to insure the product's functionality and compliance with the laws of the destination country.
Although your privacy is of utmost importance to us, customers should be aware that cross-border shipments are often subject to opening and inspection by customs officials. We may provide certain order, shipment, and product information to international carriers necessary to complete delivery of your product in order to facilitate customs clearance and comply with local and international laws.

In the rare event that your shipment is seized at your customs office, we will not be able to issue a refund. The shipping company will hold your package for a few days only. If you fail to claim it, it will be returned to us.
