International Customer Privacy
For non-US transactions, we have partnered with third party companies ("Vendors") that we have selected to help us faciliate international transactions. We work closely with these Vendors to ensure that your transaction is handled with care and all the information you provide is secure.
As an international customer, when you click on the checkout button, you will be redirected to a checkout page hosted by a Vendor to complete your order. On the checkout page, you will be required to select a method of payment and submit credit card and other information to such Vendor to complete your order. On the checkout page, you will be presented with the Vendor's terms and conditions which you must agree to in order to complete your order.
If and when applicable, upon completion and approval of your order by such Vendor, the Vendor will notify us of the approval and we will process your order. In this process, the Vendor will purchase those items in your order from us, thereby taking title to the items, bill your credit card, collect and remit any duties and taxes to the appropriate taxing authority and arrange for the delivery of your order. In this process, the Vendor makes the sale to you as the merchant of record, but we are legally obligated to deliver your order set forth in our Terms and Conditions.
