Time Limitation on Claims

You agree that any claim you may have arising out of or related to your relationship with WASHED ASHORE must be filed within one (1) year after such claim arose; otherwise, your claim is permanently barred.

International Orders; Import Duties/Taxes

International orders are welcome; however, our Services are based in the United States and we do not represent or warrant that our Services will be appropriate or available for use outside the United States. If you are located outside the United States, you agree to ensure that your access to and use of our Services complies with all applicable local, state, national, and international laws and regulations, including any laws and regulations governing the import or export of data, goods, services or software. You are the importer of record, with full responsibility for any sales, excise, value-added, GST or similar taxes and for import and customs taxes and duties. Customs procedures in your country may delay your receipt beyond our estimated delivery date. WASHED ASHORE will use reputable authorized shippers, such as DHL, or any other similarly situated shipper, as WASHED ASHORE may choose in its sole discretion.

We disclaim any liability for any compliance with local laws or procedures in your country of delivery, or delay or losses deriving from international orders.

Please note that WASHED ASHORE may impose or deduct foreign currency processing costs on or from any payments or payouts by WASHED ASHORE in currencies other than U.S. dollars. Except as otherwise provided herein, service fees to WASHED ASHORE are non-refundable.

Each foreign currency conversion is processed at a foreign currency conversion rate. This rate generally refers to the amount of one currency that must be paid to buy a certain amount of another currency at a given time. For example, if it costs US$125.00 to buy €100.00, the currency conversion rate of US dollars to Euros would be 1.25, and the currency conversion rate from Euros to US dollars would be 0.8. Currency conversion rates will vary from time to time.

 

Order Cancellations

WASHED ASHORE reserves the right to cancel any order placed via the Site and Services if WASHED ASHORE determines, in its sole discretion, that the item is mispriced, out of stock, discontinued, or otherwise unavailable at the price listed via the Site and Services. If WASHED ASHORE cancels an order placed via the Site or Services, WASHED ASHORE will send you an email confirmation of such cancellation and you will not be charged for your order. If you have already been charged, WASHED ASHORE will reimburse your Account within a commercially reasonable amount of time to the same payment method you originally used.

Damaged Items; Risk of Loss

Your purchased Product is a final sale upon shipment unless otherwise stated herein. Shipment is handled by a third-party carrier, which is currently ShipStation, and the risk of loss passes from the Seller to you at shipment. Therefore, should the WASHED ASHORE piece be damaged in transit to you, your recourse is against the carrier and the insurance carried on the shipment.
Returns

If you receive a damaged product or a product you are unsatisfied with, we agree, at our sole discretion, to reimburse you for the amount paid by you through the Site, less processing fees, where applicable. WASHED ASHORE requires all returned products to be shipped out by the buyer within fourteen (14) calendar days of the date of shipment for a full refund or exchange. If you do not ship the piece within fourteen (14) days of the date of shipment, you will NOT be eligible for a refund or exchange. All determinations of WASHED ASHORE with respect to the Returns Policy, including without limitation, approval or denial of a refund, or the size of any refund, shall be final and binding on all WASHED ASHORE users.

When making a return, You must repackage the piece using the original packaging materials used by us. If you’ve already disposed of the original packaging, you’ll be responsible for purchasing new packaging materials to send the piece back safely to us. You agree to use packaging materials that will ensure the safe return of the pieces to WASHED ASHORE.

Once the piece safely reaches the seller, WASHED ASHORE will process your return and the amount owed will be refunded to your original source of payment in the same currency and using the same exchange rate as your original order (minus shipping costs and international customs fees, if any) within seven to ten (7-10) business days of your merchandise return. WASHED ASHORE is not responsible for undelivered returns. Additional shipping fees may apply for international returns.
