Arsaeus Designs is not responsible for the damages that the article may suffer during its shipment to our facilities. These damages will be the responsibility of the company contracted by the client to carry out the shipment. To avoid such incidents, Arsaeus Designs recommends that the products be protected by additional external packaging, or in any case as received by the customer. It is important to make sure to include the protection elements that could accompany the article or be part of its original packaging (cork, porexpan, bubble wrap, cardboard, etc).
Exchanges of products that do not have the original packaging and all components will be rejected. The cost of sending a broken or defective product to our studio on which you request the exchange/replacement of the model or the refund of the amount (purchases from Canada), will be of exclusive account of Arsaeus Designs as long as the amount of the postage DOES NOT exceed $15 CAD. The buyer must send the receipt/invoice of the shipment so that Arsaeus Designs approves the return of said postage.

This incident must be communicated to email@example.com within 48 hours after receiving the order, scanning and attaching the delivery note.
This documentation is essential to validate the claim, resolve the incident, send a new product and remove the hit. In case of not acting in this way, this company assumes that the damages have suffered subsequently to these 48h.
4.1 DELAYED DELIVERIES AND SECOND DELIVERIES
In case the customer has not correctly indicated the delivery address of the product (because it is incomplete or incorrect), is not at home at the time of delivery or directly refuses delivery, the order will be returned to our studio. The customer has the possibility to cancel a second delivery and request the refund of the purchase. The refund will be deducted for the cost of shipping the failed delivery.

6. CUSTOMS INFORMATION
When you place an order on arsaeusdesigns.com, to be delivered outside Canada, you may have to pay import duties and taxes upon arrival of the product to your destination. This is because the recipient of the order becomes the importer of the goods, so it must comply with all applicable laws and regulations in the country or territory in which they are received. Any additional expenses due to the payment of customs duties and/or taxes shall be borne by the recipient. Arsaeus Designs has no control over this type of expense and therefore it is not possible to anticipate its amount. Since customs policies vary significantly from one country to another, we advise you to contact the appropriate customs office to obtain information on import restrictions that apply to certain products.
The customs offices of some countries require the registered importer to provide some type of identification before proceeding with the dispatch of an order. As a registered importer, you may be asked to provide yourself or the person to whom you are sending the consignment with a personal identification number.
Your privacy is essential to us. However, international trade is subject to inspections and reviews carried out by the customs authorities. Therefore, we may be obliged to provide the transport companies with whom we work with certain information regarding the products of your order. It is also possible that this information must also be shared with the relevant authorities to facilitate compliance with existing legislation.
