Terms of Service
FAIR USAGE POLICY
We go to extensive lengths for a smooth user experience. However, at times we need to be stringent with our policies to serve our customers better. We have noticed that although a vast majority of our customers have genuine concerns, where we are always upfront to support; there are some accounts that abuse our liberal return and exchange policies. These accounts typically return items, choose not to accept our shipments, or demand cashback for issues that we are not responsible for. Hence, our regular customers are deprived of the opportunity to purchase these products themselves. To protect the right of our customers, our customer care support team reserves the right to assess, judge, and then take the necessary action at their discretion.
IMPAIRMENT & DAMAGES
We take the utmost care and accountability while sending our products to you. Your package is screened and goes through an extensive quality check so that we deliver the best to you. However, if you have received damaged items through your order on our website directly, kindly contact the customer service team within 24 hours of the order delivery. Please keep a note of the following:
1. Do not use the products
2. Take proper snapshots of the products
3. Keep the invoice copy with you
If, however, the order is placed through an online marketplace, please raise the issue with our customer service team. In such a case, Smith & Blake is not responsible for any damages caused.
