1. Shipping Policy

1.1. Customs taxes

If Goods are being ordered from outside the EU or China, import duties and taxes may be incurred once your Goods reach their destination. We are not responsible for such charges and we undertake to make no calculations or estimates in this regard. These charges must be paid by the recipient of the parcel. If you are buying internationally, you are advised to contact your local customs authorities for further details on costs and procedures. As the purchaser of the Goods, you will also be the importer of record and as such should ensure that your purchase is in full compliance with the laws of the country into which the Goods are being imported. Please be aware that Goods may be inspected on arrival at port for customs purposes and we cannot guarantee that the packaging of your Goods will be free of signs of tampering.

If import duties and taxes are incurred, you will not get your parcel until the charges are paid. If you don’t pay, the parcel will be held by your local customs for around 3 weeks and after that, if you still haven’t paid, it will be returned to us, and we will have to pay these charges as well as additional postage fee for the return. As the Goods will be returned to us we will refund your order but these import duties and taxes will be deducted from the order refund. Note that we are not responsible for the refund of any import duties and taxes that your order may have incurred.

1.2. Wrong address

We will not be responsible for wrong shipping addresses if we do not have the correct information. Any reprocessed order will be charged an additional fee, USD 20.00 with standard shipping or USD 40.00 with express service, in case of incorrect shipping information provided. Those fees will be deducted from the refund if the order is canceled after having been shipped.

1.3. Shipping methods

We reserve the right to vary shipping methods to certain destinations should it be considered more appropriate and to alter the shipping method from that stated on your order should we deem it necessary.

1.4. Delivery time

The delivery time frames are for reference only. There is no guarantee that the parcel will arrive within the defined time. Transit times can vary based on the shipping location, weather condition, custom inspection.

2.8. Beware of Counterfeit

Beware of counterfeit products trading off of the valuable goodwill of the Coolado® brand.  Like many companies that have expended years and enormous resources in carefully developing brand recognition, Coolado products are being unlawfully imitated and sold at inferior quality through unauthorized channels, and usually at drastically reduced prices. These inferior knockoffs, while not always easy to detect, are not produced by or for Coolado or under its control.  Accordingly, these products do not meet Coolado’s quality standards and are not covered by Coolado warranty.

Owner of multiple engineering patents, design patents and trademarks worldwide, we intend to vigorously investigate those who manufacture or sell counterfeit Coolado products and take action against counterfeiters as appropriate to protect the value that the Coolado® brand has come to represent.

We appreciate your help in maintaining the integrity of the Coolado® brand.

REMINDER: IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS CONCERNING THIS ISSUE, PLEASE CONTACT OUR CUSTOMER SERVICE AT INFO@COOLADO.COM

If you purchase a Coolado product from an unauthorized dealer or if the original factory serial number has been removed, defaced or altered, your Coolado warranty will not be valid.

Unfortunately, there are some websites and dealers who claim to be authorized Coolado reseller but are not. Products sold on these websites or from these dealers do not carry a warranty from Coolado. When you purchase products from an unauthorized website or dealer you are taking a risk, because these products may be counterfeit, used, defective, or may not be designed for use in your country. Please protect yourself and your Coolado product by ensuring that you only purchase Coolado products from an Authorized Coolado Dealer.
