ORDER CONFORMATION E-MAIL
Order confirmations are automatically sent to the billing email address given by you during checkout. IN ORDER TO RESERVE YOUR PRODUCT WITH OUR MANUFACTURERS, YOUR CREDIT CARD WILL BE CHARGED THE BALANCE OF YOUR SALES ORDER AT THE TIME YOU PLACE YOUR ORDER. If upon placing your order online, you don’t receive an email confirmation within 48 hours please contact us immediately at email@example.com. Upon receiving your order confirmation via email please review all aspects of the order for data accuracy; you have 24 hours from the time you receive the order confirmation to make any correction to the items listed on the order. If after the 24 hours you wish the items on the order changed, we will attempt to make the change with the manufacturer, if the order cannot be changed with the manufacturer, there will be a restocking fee charged. Orders should not be considered changed, unless you receive from HouseofCindy.com, a confirmation email outlining the changes you requested, which you will only receive upon our verification with the manufacturer that the order has been changed. Upon receiving this email confirmation, you will be required to reply to the change order as verification by you of the changes.
If you would like to exchange or return an item purchased in the last 15 days, you will need to request a Return Authorization (RA) number from firstname.lastname@example.org
(Note that CUSTOM ORDERS are not eligible for return or exchange – Please see below for more information). After submitting your return request, we will review the information and forward via email an RA number and instructions for returning the item. All custom items are final sale. Please note that items shipped back to us without a return authorization number will not be accepted and will be returned to you. All items must be returned in their original, unworn and unused condition enclosed in original packaging within 15 days for a refund or exchange. Returned items should be free from dirt and debris. In the event an item is returned in a condition where it can not be resold, the order will be sent back to you and additional shipping charges will apply. Shipping fees are non-refundable. We offer free shipping on several of our items. If for any reason you need to return an item with free shipping, the refund you receive will be for the item price minus the standard shipping cost. Standard shipping costs are based on item prices as outlined within our shipping information. If you opt to exchange your free shipping purchase for another item that also had free shipping, a standard shipping charge will be added to cover our costs.
Because many of these items are made to order, custom pieces are not returnable or refundable. If you are at all uncertain if what you are ordering is considered custom, please contact us to verify. You have up to 24 hours from the date the order was placed to cancel a custom order and to have the amount refunded to your credit card. After 24 hours custom orders are non-refundable. Upon delivery, please take time to inspect all freight shipped items carefully for any damage that may have occurred in transit and contact us immediately. Claims against damaged items must be made within 3 business days. Unfortunately, claims made after the 3 business day window will not be accepted and are unable to be returned.
If for any reason your custom piece does not arrive with the specifications that you selected when ordering, House of Cindy reserves the right to have the item or items replaced and reshipped at no additional charge to you. You should contact us immediately if this occurs so that we can get the replacement in the works as soon as possible. While the manufacturers do their best to ensure excellent packaging; occasionally glass fixtures could get damaged at the hands of a delivery carrier in transit. Items received with broken glass ARE NOT considered defective products. HouseofCindy.com and the manufacturer reserve the right to replace the glass as quickly as possible. In these cases, you can contact our customer care department to request replacement glass to be sent to you at no additional cost.
House of Cindy does everything possible to assure a smooth and prompt delivery of your lighting, pillows, bedding, heirloom items and custom items. However, be aware and consider that there are circumstances out of our control that may arise and result in a delay in the production or delivery of your items. We do our best to give accurate lead times for each manufacturer but estimated lead times are not a guarantee of a specific delivery date. We welcome your inquiries as the estimated delivery time approaches and we can follow up to give you a more specific idea of your ship date at that time. Also note that shipping time for freight items (this includes, custom orders) is approximately 7-15 business days from the time that the item(s) are scheduled for pickup from our manufacturer. We act as your liaison to best assist you in a prompt delivery but again, there are variables that are out of our control as we are considered a third party. We know you’ll enjoy the product that is made especially for you!
You can expect a refund in the same form of payment originally used for purchase within 30 days of our receiving your return. Please understand that it takes several days for us to go through returns and to inspect them. After inspection it is sent to our credit department for processing. If accepted, a credit is given and it takes several business days for a credit to post through the credit card processor and issuing bank. All returns and exchanges will be credited less applicable restocking fees and shipping costs. HouseofCindy.com reserves the right to charge restocking fees on any and all returned or exchanged items. If you have not received a credit and it as been longer than 30 days, please contact our Customer Care Department at email@example.com.
