TAXES AND DUTIES

 
Import duties and/or taxes may be levied by the local country's authorities if good are received outside Hong Kong. Payment of these charges is necessary to release your order from customs. Our courier will contact you locally with details of any import duty to pay. Please note that the Site has no control over these charges and we can’t tell you what the cost would be, as customs policies and import duties vary widely from country to country. As the recipient, you will be responsible for all import duties, customs and local sales’ taxes levied by the country you are shipping to. Please consider to contact your local customs office for current charges before you order. We will not accept order cancellation due to the customs charges levied on the orders.

If the recipient or collector is not the original purchaser, or in case of delivery of a gift, then you accept this signature as an evidence of delivery and fulfilment of your order by the Site. You also accept the associated transfer of responsibility in the same way. The Site reserves the right to update its shipping terms at its sole discretion without prior notice.
