We only advertise what we have in stock
We guarantee that we never accept payment for products we can't ship within three working days. This "3 day rule" is only for exceptional cases, with illness in our dispatch center etc. Normally an order is shipped the same or the next working day.
Our prices depend on the USD exchange rate
Our prices are based on the USD and prices displayed in other currencies in our store fluctuate with their exchange rates to the US dollar. The reason is that our largest market is the US (so we receive USD), but, more importantly, all our major suppliers accept only USD. This means that we run a wholly USD-based business and, in order to maintain a fixed profit margin, we have to calculate our sales prices in USD.
No warranty on packaging materials
We accept no liability for damaged packaging (damaged on arrival or damaged by the customer). Specifically, when the plastic tube the dermarolling instruments are packaged in is damaged during opening it or if its lid does not close anymore. This type of packaging is useful and functional but is not intended to be fully intact or hermetically re-closable after opening. The tubes our instruments come in are to be considered "sturdy packaging" and not part of the actual product.
We will try to combine orders when you ask us to (we also try to do it when you don't ask us), but we do not refund for postage, since postage is based mainly on weight and the combined order is often sent tracked due to its value, and tracking is more expensive and paid by us. Also, combining orders involves more care as it is a deviation from the normal routine, as well as the extra work involved in communication with the customer. In some cases, when the cost of shipping would be much less in a combined order, we refund the difference.
We guarantee that we dispatch orders within three working days of the order. US customers should take into account that due to various factors beyond our control, US mail processing delays in the cold months of the year may take up to three months. USPS in that case will misrepresent the tracking status as "Origin Post Preparing Shipment", as is explained in our Shipping section. Customers outside the US should receive their order in around three weeks, usually much sooner. Exceptions are Canada, whose Customs can cause three-month delays and Australia, whose postal system can cause six-week delays. Canadian and US customers place their order in the knowledge about possible three-month delays and explicitly agree they will not file payment disputes during that period.
Incomplete or wrong addresses
When the customer has used the wrong or incomplete shipping address, even when a single character is omitted, added or erroneous, we can not be held liable for a non-delivery.
We do not guarantee delivery of unregistered mail to a 3rd party
Only have your order delivered to a 3rd party, such as a mail forwarder or the office building you work at when you accept the risk of non-delivery, because we won't accept the financial risk of that 3rd party handing over the shipment to you.
We will not ship to company addresses when it's not a company order
Since an order by a private individual to their place of employtment usually involves the handover of the shipment to a person other than the addresse, this involves extra risk for us and we will cancel and refund such orders, when the order apparently has not been placed on behalf of the company itself.
Addressee agrees to contact their Post office or Postal service in case of transit issue
Before we file an inquiry or grant a refund, the customer agrees to do everything in their power to resolve any delivery issues with their own postal service. When a shipment is shown to be in your local post office for example, you can not expect us to call them from the other side of the planet but we expect you to go there of call them until the issue is resolved. And it is your responsibility to keep tracking the shipment and try and resolve the matter before it is sent back to us, or we will charge a restocking fee and will not sell to you again.
Sales tax, import tax
It is impossible for us to know about the percentages of sales tax and import tax, if any, apply to every country we ship to. Canadians, for example, pay a sales tax on their imports. All import levvies, taxes and fees are the responsibility of the buyer.
The only way we can refund a customer is via the same payment processor that was used for the payment. If the customer or payment processor refuses to accept or process the transaction than we can not be forced to arrange a refund in another manner. It is standard procedure for a bank or card issuer to reserve the amount of a transaction on a card in case of a failed transaction. Transactions usually are declined by US banks when they payment is outside the US. Such reservations on declined transactions do not appear in our transaction logs and hence can not be refunded by us. They are merely fraud-prevention related temporary blocks on the funds from your bank's or card issuer's side and the funds will be released a few days afterwards. We only refund in case we have legal liability to do so.
No-refund policy for the Derminator® device
The Derminator® machine is a medical instrument and treatment involves contaminating the instrument with human blood. For this reason, all sales are final and the only policy we have is one of replacement in case a device is provenly faulty. A few customers in the past got buyers' remorse and demanded to return the machine because we "did not explain how to use it properly" or "because it caused me scars" or "because I ordered the wrong plug" but we never refund in such cases and consider a payment dispute in such cases to be fraud and will treat it as such as per our T&C. Customers should get familiar with our instructional materials before buying the device, and agree (by agreeing to our T&C) to take full responsibility for the results of the medical treatment done with the device.
Private blacklisting at our discretion
The customer understands that if the customer insults or threatens us or does anything to warrant public blacklisting as detailed below, that we reject further orders from that customer. If we think that a customer is too much of a risk to us or themselves, we may decide not to accept orders from them.
Public blacklisting in case the customer commits an offense against us (files a payment dispute, malicious defamation), deliberately causes us damage (refuses to accept a shipment) or threatens us with an offense (public defamation or a payment dispute)
The customer permits public blacklisting of all professional and personal details we can obtain, including granting a reproduction license for pictures of themselves, in case the customer in our opinion needlessly causes us financial damage or threatens to do so with the aim of coercing us to grant them an advantage. Examples are public defamation or threatening it, theft in the form of 3rd party payment disputes with a bank of payment processor and unjust enrichment by refusing to return an erroneously given refund. The "Deliberately causes us damage" clause includes demanding a refund on in our opinion invalid grounds, especially when combining it with accusations of unprofessionality or rudeness because it can then be reasonably considered blackmail with intent to benefit financially, since the added complaint against our customer service constitutes a veiled threat of defaming us online unless the unjustifiable demand for money or products is satisfied.
