It is required of the customer wishing to register to correctly register the correct information in order for the Company to issue a member ID and password (member registration).

      • - The contract between the customer and the Company shall be established at the time that the Company ships the relevant item(s) to the customer. The sending of an Order Confirmation email by the Company is for the purpose of confirming the contents of your application to enter into a contract with the Company, and does not mean that the Company has approved your application to enter into said contract.
        Even after sending the Order Confirmation email, due to there being a difference between the stock status displayed on the Company’s site and actual stock, there may be cases where there is a stock shortage of one or all items. Furthermore, the Company’s stock status differs from the suppliers’. Please kindly understand that there are also cases where the same item is in stock at a suppliers’ but out of stock at the Company.
      • - In the event that one or more items ordered as part of an order are out of stock, the equivalent cost of the out-of-stock items will be deducted from the settlement amount and the order will be shipped without prior notification. Additionally, even if the item comes into stock after the order has shipped, the Company is unable to ship the items as a supplement to your previous order. Please make a new order for the item.
      • - Order contents (such as size, color, or quantity) and the shipping address information cannot be changed once the order has been placed. Orders cannot be cancelled or changed in any way once they have been submitted.
      • - Although the Company strives to ship your order within 8 days from the day it was placed, depending on the contents of the order, the condition of stocks, and the volume of orders, there may be instances where shipment of the order is delayed. Also, items from the Site may take additional time for production.
      • - You should investigate the rules and regulations regarding importing into your country, including goods restricted for import, before placing an order. In the unlikely event that an ordered item is not allowed for import into your country or is subject to tax due to its high value, the Company cannot accept responsibility for the item. The Company cannot provide you any refunds or exchanges for the item or cost of delivery.
      • - The Company reserves the right to combine multiple orders from the same customer, and ship them together as one unit. Even in the event that this results in shipping and handling fees being levied multiple times, the Company will not refund them.
