INTERNATIONAL DELIVERIES ONLY
This information is only relevant for deliveries made outside the European Union.
Please note that all shipments outside South Africa may be subject to Import Duty / Tax / VAT which are levied once a shipment reaches your country.
As we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be, additional charges for customs clearance must be paid by the recipient of the parcel. Such charges are not included in the purchase price of Hydrozone products. We will not be responsible for the payment of any Import Duty / Tax / VAT under any circumstances.
We are not able to offer a refund for returned goods which are returned because the customer wishes to avoid paying any customs duties imposed.
When ordering from Hydrozone you agree to pay any Import Duty / Tax / VAT which may be imposed by your country's government. If you refuse to pay any Import Duty / Tax / VAT imposed and thereby prevent delivery of your order you will remain liable for the purchase price of the product/s and any Import Duty / Tax / VAT or penalty imposed by your government.
Customs policies vary widely from country to country and customs duties are not always applied. Each country has its own rules for determining whether Import Duty / Tax / VAT will apply. Some countries only charge customs duties if the parcel has a value over a certain amount. Based on your country's customs rules, it is possible that your parcel will fall below that threshold level.
Therefore we ask that you contact your local customs/import/mail departments for rates before you place an order to avoid any surprises.
We cannot guarantee that items will not be subject to random checks and cause associated delays and charges. Hydrozone is not responsible for any delays caused by destination customs clearance processes.
International Customs, Duties, and Taxes
All customs duties and taxes are the responsibility of the recipient. VAT will be assessed where applicable. All fees paid by the International Delivery carrier are then passed along to the receiver, with an occasional delay. Any customs or import duties are levied once the package reaches its destination country. We have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be
Unfortunately, due to circumstances outside of our control, some international orders get stopped by the customs agency in your country. First of all, please read our full disclaimer:
DISCLAIMER: We cannot be responsible for any customs restrictions, tariffs, or other regulations that may apply in countries outside the South Africa. If you have any questions, we encourage you to speak with your customs office, although we will ship any products you order to the address you provide.
The laws are different in every country, they change often, and we cannot keep up with them all. The responsibility is yours to check with your country’s Customs office to see if your country allows the shipment of products you ordered (or wish to order) to your country.
We will do our part and follow the exact directions in your order. We will ship the products that you pick to the address that you provide. We will give you the best service and ship it very quick at the rates that we have agreed to on our site. If for whatever reason the package is seized by Customs Officials, we will not issue you a refund unless all products are returned to us in their original condition. Most orders make it through customs fine; however, most orders that are stopped are returned to us. Also, if the package is returned to us by Customs Officials, you are still responsible for any shipping charges. You pay actual shipping charges based on the weight of the package.
Any duties or taxes that may apply are your responsibility.
By ordering from our site you are stating that you agree to the above paragraphs. Don’t worry though, we rarely have problems with international shipments and almost all products are legal in almost all countries.
My Package Was Seized, Now What?
If your package is stopped by the customs agency in your country, you may or may not receive a notice from them. If the products are indeed illegal in your country, they will most likely return the package to us. If they do, there may be a return shipping fee. Once the package is received back by us, we will contact you by e-mail and refund you for the products, minus the shipping fees. You can also use this credit towards different products or have the package shipped again. We will help you out!
If the package is not sent back to us or if it is destroyed, we will not be able to refund any part of the purchase price. We followed your directions and those directions caused the product to be seized. We apologize for the inconvenience and we hope you will give us a try again with different products.
We hope you can understand the reasons that we cannot refund you for seized products. Our goal is to make every customer happy! We do exactly as the customer tell us to do, like any good company should. Unfortunately, sometimes doing what you want us to do can cause problems if you are not sure of what the laws are in your country.
