Your Payment / Orders on the Website. The orders placed on the Website are subjecting to being charged with import fees, taxes, custom duties, and/or any other relevant charges required by the corresponding designated country. None of these charges are included in the price that you pay on the Website. Items cannot be sent as gifts, and your purchase may or may not have these charges, depending on the policies of the designated country and/or the organisation(s) that handle(s) the package. If any of the said charges apply, you may need to pay for them to the respective collection authority in advance of receiving your purchase. You should check with any related authority of your country (or the designated country of the order) for any charges required to receive the goods you order from The Blonde Citizen™ who is not responsible for any of these charges, and would not refund on item(s) returned to us due to unaccepted / undelivered and/or any other reasons unless otherwise agreed in advance.
Shipping / Delivery of Your Order. The delivery type “Standard Shipping” and “Tracked Minibox” is done via Poste Italiane. Both Delivery types are to be carried out by the national postal service when the articles arrive in the destination country.
The way the package is presented to the recipient will depend on the postal service provided in the designated country. Most of the time packages are delivered by postman to the address and require the recipient to sign to receive the package. However, this may not be applicable to some countries or particular areas in the country and recipients may sometimes be required to pick up the package from the postal service’s office. Please contact the national postal service of your country to check the way packages are delivered.
Since shipping is often affected by the processing time of the Customs and delivery standard in the destination country, the estimated delivery date indicated on the Web site is strictly for reference only and shall not be regarded as a commitment. The Blonde Citizen™ does not guarantee orders to be delivered by a particular time, and shall not be liable for any direct / indirect loss caused by delivery issues. If there is a necessity to check the status of the article in the destination country with local postal service, you will need to carry out the enquiry on your own and The Blonde Citizen™ will not be responsible for any fees (such as communications) incurred.
For the free shipping offer that The Blonde Citizen™ provides, the type of delivery to be adopted will be “Standard Shipping” unless otherwise specified. Free shipping will be offered only to the initial shipment of an order. If the initial shipment is not received and a re-shipment is required, re-shipment fee will be required in such cases. Reasons for shipment being unable to receive may include but not limited to, wrong recipient information and/or address provided during checkout (which will appear in the order confirmation email), recipient unable to pick up the package from local postal service. Exemptions of re-shipment fee may be granted for situations such as article being lost by the postal service, or the product is found to be defective when received.
