These purchase conditions govern the sale of goods by Polaroid America Corp, PO Box 4668 #21179, 10163-4668 New York, United States, a subsidiary of the Dutch company Polaroid B.V. (“Polaroid” or “we”) to consumers via our website www.polaroid.com.
You can contact us on: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Before you can order goods on the website, you need to fill in some personal details, including your email address.
When you place an order to purchase goods from Polaroid, we will send you an email confirming receipt of your order and containing the details of your order.
We do not sell goods for purchase by minors. If you are under 18 you may only order with the permission of a legal representative.
We reserve the right to refuse any order you place with us. We may, in our sole discretion, limit or cancel quantities purchased per person, per household or per order. These restrictions may include orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same credit card, and/or orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address.
We also reserve the right to limit or prohibit orders that, in our sole judgment, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers or distributors.
In the event that we make a change to or cancel an order, we will notify you.
If you cancel your order before we have accepted your order, then we will promptly refund any payment already made for the order of the respective goods.
Once we have accepted your order, we will dispatch the goods to you and send you an email confirmation thereof. The dispatch confirmation email will usually be sent within five (5) days after we received your order.
We usually list unavailability information for out of stock goods on the respective information page of those goods. Beyond what we say on that page or otherwise on the website, we cannot be more specific about availability. As we process your order, we will inform you by email as soon as possible if any goods you order turn out to be unavailable, in which case we will give you a full refund when you have already paid for the goods.
You agree to provide current, complete and accurate purchase and account information for all purchases made at our store. You agree to promptly update your account and other information, including your email address and credit card numbers and expiration dates, so that we can complete your transactions and contact you as needed.
3. Payment and prices
Prices for our products are subject to change without notice.
You consent to receive sales invoices electronically via email.
Within the European Union ("EU") all prices are inclusive of legally applicable VAT.
In case your order shall be sent to a country outside the EU, all prices are net prices excluding any VAT and excluding any service charge and/or sales tax, if any, depending on the carrier and on the country of destination. Pursuant to applicable law VAT and service charge, if any, are usually to be paid to the carrier at/after delivery of the goods to the specified destination.
When you buy on our online shop you are considered as a private buyer. Therefore, we do not offer the possibility to use a VAT number on invoices for VAT return.
The purchase price and the shipping costs are due without any deduction. All payments are due in the currency shown on the website. In case your bank account is held in another currency you bear any costs, if any, for currency exchanges to the currency shown on the website.
We offer a wide range of payment options to complete your purchase on our website. You will be able to find all the payment methods available during the checkout process. All payments are subject to validation checks and authorization by the payment service provider you have chosen to ensure there are sufficient funds to complete the transaction. If the provider refuses to, or does not for any reason, authorize payment, the order will be cancelled and you will be notified by email as soon as possible. The goods you have purchased will not be dispatched until this check has been completed and payment has been captured.
Payment via our payment methods is processed by the respective financial service provider. Polaroid does not have access to this sensitive data.
In case of the infeasibility of a payment method chosen by you (including, but not limited to, due to insufficient funds or due to incorrect data) you are obligated to compensate Polaroid for any additional costs this infeasibility might lead to.
4. Delivery and shipment
Unless agreed otherwise, delivery shall occur at the facility in the United States from which your order ships.
Within the United States, we offer shipment to PO Boxes for purchases made through our U.S. online shop.
Outside the United States, we are not able to ship to PO boxes or DHL Packstations since our chosen courier and shipment method requires a signature of receipt by the recipient for all shipments.
Shipment will be made via a carrier of our choice. However, we reserve the right to offer a choice between different carriers and/or different forms of shipping. You bear the shipping costs which depend on the weight of the ordered goods, the chosen form of shipping and the shipping address. We do our very best to keep your shipping costs within a reasonable range, but we only offer traceable courier services as all our goods are highly fragile and should reach you in the best and fastest way possible.
Please note that when ordering from Polaroid, you are considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you will receive the goods. You are responsible for assuring that the goods can be lawfully imported to the destination country and for payment of possible import duties, import taxes, and possible handling fees. Unless agreed otherwise, by ordering goods from this website, you authorize the customs broker selected by us or the carrier to act as your agent to transact business with the relevant customs authorities to clear merchandise, pay duties and taxes, and to handle any merchandise returns and refund claims on your behalf.
You will receive a shipping confirmation email with a tracking number as soon as your order has been shipped. This is the most accurate way to check up on your order. You can also see the status of your order by logging into your Polaroid account.
Damage during shipment
Should your shipment arrive at your delivery address damaged, please do not accept the shipment, or have the courier confirm the damage. Since courier services will not accept damage complaints that are filed at a later date, we will not be able to offer compensation or replacement in such cases.
Delay in shipment
Please note that we strive to deliver in time, but unexpected events occasionally result in delayed shipment. Unless otherwise expressly agreed and if a delivery is delayed, you are entitled to cancel your purchase.
5. Title to the goods
Property in the goods passes at the time of delivery to you or to a third party indicated by you. At the same time the risk of deterioration in the goods passes to you.
Any goods delivered to you or to a third party indicated by you remain Polaroid’s property until they have been fully paid for. You or such third party indicated by you are/is obligated to handle the goods with due care until title in them has been transferred to you or such third party indicated by you.
We have a standard 14-day return policy for all purchases made through our online shop. If you are dissatisfied with your purchase for any reason, you may return it for a full refund within 14 days of receiving the product(s).
To be eligible for a return, your product must be in the same condition as received, so unused and unopened with all original packaging and documentation.
How to return
All returns are handled on a case-by-case basis: you will need to get in touch with us via email email@example.com. Please provide your order ID in the message.
All returns need to be authorized by the customer support team. They will provide an RMA number and return address which is needed for the return process. Returns without a valid RMA number may not be processed and may delay any replacement or refund.
If you are shipping back one of our products, you should consider using a trackable shipping service or purchasing shipping insurance. We don’t guarantee that we will receive your returned item.
You are responsible for the shipping costs of your return shipment and bear the risk of loss of the return.
Approval or rejection return
Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund.
If you are approved, you will be credited the full purchase price paid for the returned goods including our initial shipping charge. It will take some days before you will see payment on your bank account.
