TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Any order made on www.thesklab.com implies that you are in agreement with the following terms and conditions.
The automatic registration systems are considered proof of purchase, content and date inclusive. The SK Lab will confirm receipt of the Order with a confirmation message to the email entered at the time of purchase. The sale will be considered as finalised once the ordered item(s) have been physically dispatched. The SK Lab has the right to decline or cancel any order from a customer, whether it be in case of non-payment or failure to pay (an order), or in case of a previous dispute with a returning customer, over payment or any other issue that would force us to terminate all dealings with him/her. The customer is fully responsible for the information entered by him/her at the time of purchase. The SK Lab will not be held responsible for what errors made by the customer might entail, such as delays in delivery, delivery to the wrong address, or even failure to deliver. However, if the customer notifies us in time, we will gladly make the necessary changes.
RATE OF EXCHANGE
All prices are in Euros, all tax included, and are subject to the French VAT of 20%. They do not include shipping costs. If you are in a non-Euro zone, your account will be charged in your local currency of an amount equal to the current rate of exchange in place at the time of your order. For any information about price equivalents, please refer to this currency converter.
SHIPPING TIMES AND COSTS
Sewing pattern orders are processed for shipping between two and five business days according to stock. Once processed, delivery times are approximately the following:
- France: from two to five days. Shipping is free
- Europe: can take up to ten business days (2 weeks). Shipping costs: Anywhere between 2€ and 8€
- World: between five and fifteen business days (3 weeks). Shipping costs: Anywhere between 2€ and 10€
The shipping option we chose does not provide tracking for our sewing patterns. If you wish to use the tracking method (France only), this is possible for an additional 5€. Shipping costs are based on the French Postal Services rate for the weight of the package and its destination address. To find your exact shipping costs, just add your desired items to your cart and proceed to payment. The shipping cost will be calculated before your order is completed, so you can see the amount before entering your payment information. If delivery time exceeds 30 business days (6 weeks), the SK Lab commits to either cancel or reimburse your order. Nonetheless, we are not responsible for delays independent of our will, such as unanticipated post office strikes. We trust that, in case of any kind of issue, we can sort it out through intelligent and respectful communication.
Returns are accepted on unopened, unused items within 30 days of receipt. Returns on used or unsealed items will not be accepted. If your return is a result of an error on our part, we will take full responsibility and handle all costs for the shipping, to us and back to you. Otherwise, shipping is nonrefundable. Refunds are given as store credit that can be used for anything on our site, may it be knitting or sewing.
