Terms & Conditions
TERMS & CONDITIONS
This website is operated by Karolina Laskowska ®. Any purchases made on this website are governed by these terms and conditions at any given time. If you have ordered any goods after changes to these terms and conditions have been published, you will be bound by these changes. You should check prior to any order to ensure that you understand the exact terms and conditions applicable to your purchase.
When you make an order, you will receive an email to the email address provided to us confirming your order. This will indicate acceptance of the order. At this point the purchase contract will have been made and we will supply the goods to you in accordance with your order and these terms and conditions.
Products supplied from this website are supplied by Karolina Laskowska, registered at Garver Ytterborgsvei 135, 0977, Oslo, Norway.
All prices listed are in Norwegian Kroner. The prices of the goods will be as quoted on the website when you confirm your order (when you ‘checkout’) subject to inadvertent technical errors that we will not be liable for.
If you later amend your order, the prices charged will be those applicable to the items at the time that the amended order is confirmed. Please note that as promotions are offered for limited periods of time, subsequent amendments to your order may mean that certain promotions are no longer offered.
Prices of goods do not include any delivery charges.
Karolina Laskowska does not currently charge VAT on sales outside of Norway, and prices are displayed exclusive of this tax for non-Norwegian customers.
Orders of in-stock goods will normally be dispatched within seven working days from receiving your order confirmation and payment. Processing times of made-to-order goods will vary.
Shipping times, rates and services vary according to your location, please refer to our shipping page for more information.
Please note that we cannot guarantee shipping times, and that these estimates may be subject to delays (such as customs processing in your country) that are outside out control.
Normal postal lead times from dispatch are: Europe 5-14 days, most other areas 7-21 days (though please allow up to 30 working days for delivery). You will be contacted by email should there be any delay.
Returns & cancellations:
If upon receiving your order and are not completely satisfied, you may be entitled to return the order for a refund.
If you would like to arrange a refund, please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org within 14 days of receipt, providing that the item is unworn and in perfect condition.
If an item is deemed to have been worn or damaged due to customer negligence it will be returned to the sender. Please take extra care when trying on garments to avoid damage. Knickers should be tried on over your own garments. Please check the measurements on corsets carefully before ordered; forcing a corset that is too small onto your body may damage it.
When emailing us please state your order number and reason for return. Once your email has been received you will be provided with a return address.
Please ensure that all returns are fully insured as we cannot accept responsibility for goods lost in transit. For international returns, please ensure that customs documentation is filled in correctly indicating that the item is a return, and that all customs clearance is prepaid by you. Should the item have customs charges placed on it upon arrival to Norway, we will not be able to accept it and it will be returned to you. Should customs clearance not be prepaid and be charges to Karolina Laskowska, this charge will be taken off the value of the return (normally 300NOK).
Regretfully we cannot offer exchanges on any orders. All returns will be processed for a refund of the original item value. Shipping will only be refunded in the instance where there is a fault in the original order.
We currently do not cover return shipping costs or customs processing charges - these must be borne by the customer in the instance of a return.
We do not accept returns of made-to-order goods under any circumstances.
Orders of made-to-order goods may be cancelled within 48 hours of placing the order. After this time it may not be possible to refund this full amount. These situations will be judged by a case by case basis depending on the amount of work that has already been undertaken. Made-to-order and bespoke are not returnable under any circumstances. In the unlikely event that there has been a manufacturing fault, a replacement will be offered.
Any bespoke orders that are cancelled prior to delivery will incur a minimum charge of the full deposit originally paid.
If payment is late by over 30 days for an instalment on a made-to-order item, we reserve the right to deem the order cancelled. Any instalments paid up to that point will not be refunded to cover the cost of work up to that point.
Care has been taken to ensure that descriptions and specifications of all products on this website are correct. Whilst colour representations are close, we cannot accept responsibility for colour variation caused by different browsers.
Customs & Duty
Please note that all shipments outside the Norway may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country.
As we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be, additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you.
