Distance Selling Contract
The Black Ears (“TBE”) collects important customer information in an effort to enhance and personalize your shopping experience. This information allows us to communicate with our customers about our products, services and promotions.
TBE uses UPS and affiliates of UPS to ensure the best possible delivery service is available to our customers.
All delivery times are estimates depending on the particular service used. These may vary depending on external factors and should be taken as approximate times only.
In order to provide the most affordable shipping rate for our international customers, all international standard deliveries are shipped without tracking service outside the TR at the moment. We are sorry for the inconveniences caused.
If you place your order before 12 noon Monday to Thursday, you will receive it the next day. If you place your order after 12 noon on a Thursday or in the weekend, it will be delivered on Tuesday. Please note we do not deliver on Bank Holidays so your order will be delivered 2 working days later.
For international orders delivery costs do not include duty and custom charges, you may (but not necessarily) be required to pay additional domestic sales taxes on receipt of delivery. Additional charges for customs clearance must be accepted by the recipient. We have no control over these charges and they are a reflection of the customs and policies held by the final destination country, this has no relation to TBE. Policies for customs vary from country to country; you may want to contact your local customs office for further information prior to ordering. In the event that you wish to return your item TBE is unable to refund import duty and local sales taxes.
Please note no tracking information can be provided for international orders. If you wish to have your order tracked or sent via a different postage method this will be at the customers expense. Please contact us[email protected] for details.
All prices include VAT for all customers.
