As we work with different international and local suppliers across the world, depending on the items you ordered your items may arrive in separate packages on different dates.
*AN ORDER CANNOT BE CANCELLED ONCE IT'S BEEN MADE. IF YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND AFTER YOU PURCHASE, YOU NEED TO RECEIVE THE ITEM FIRST AND THEN FOLLOW THE REGULAR RETURN PROCEDURE
*IF YOU REFUSE DELIVERY YOU WILL NOT BE ENTITLED TO REFUND PLEASE READ BELOW
IMPORTANT : If you decide to return the item you purchased before you receive it, please DO NOT refuse delivery, otherwise the delivery company will have to send the item back to our supplier overseas in which case the higher return delivery charge and all applicable customs charges will be the responsibility of the customer. INSTEAD, please first accept the item, then we'll start the normal return procedure. Please e-mail us directly in case you decide not to have the item and we'll guide you through the process.
If item(s) cannot be delivered due to customer error or fault such as wrong address etc or other causes, the customer will not be entitled to refund. Instead you will have the option to get another of the same item for a $20 fee. This is not per order but per item. For example, if it's 2 items in an order and neither could be delivered, total fee would be $40.
If the item(s) cannot be delivered due to wrong address entered by the supplier during order fulfillment, the customer will not be entitled to refund. Instead the same item in the order will be re-sent to the customer for free and Loretta will issue a $40 store credit to the customer as an apology.
ITEM LOST IN MAIL
In rare cases, items maybe lost during transfer from international carriers to local ones due to sorting errors or similar. As this is neither customer's nor our fault we decided on a solution where we will send you a new one of the same lost item in the order for free. However, the customer will not be entitled to refund.
However, our responsibility ends where the item reaches your mailbox. If the item is lost after reaching your mailbox, we will not be required to send you a new one for free, but you can still order a new one using the procedure in the paragraph above titled 'Wrong Address'.
CUSTOMS-IMPORT DUTIES & TAXES
Your order may be subject to VAT, import duties and/or taxes, which are levied once your package reaches your country. Any VAT, Customs-Import Duties and/or taxes are the responsibility of the buyer.
Loretta Lace ships your package DDU, “duties and taxes unpaid”, and does not collect the VAT, duties and/or taxes and cannot predict what your particular charges may be. If you do incur these additional charges, they must be rendered in order for your package to clear customs. By law, the package cannot be returned to us unless the client pays duties and taxes.
For more information regarding your country’s custom policies, please contact your local customs office.
RETURNS (PLEASE READ CAREFULLY)
If you're not happy with the product(s) you bought from us you can always return it.
Maximum number of items a customer can return in a 6-month period is limited to 2 pieces per customer (not per order). This is aimed at preventing customer abuse where customers use the items and return afterwards.

Cost of returning the items belongs to the customer.
If the product(s) meet the return criteria above, you will be eligible for full refund minus shipping. Shipping is not refundable.
Return period is 3 days. This is a reasonable time for you to decide whether or not you like the product. This is a precaution to protect our business from abusive orders where customers use the items and return afterwards.
It starts at the delivery time on the date item is delivered to you, an agent/household or at the mailbox or the first delivery attempt time and date by the shipping company and ends 72 hours after this delivery/delivery attempt. During this time it's enough for you to e-mail us. After the initial e-mail the item(s) should be mailed within 3 days after which return period will expire.
