Taxation and Handling of DHL

Once your order is shipped, possessive rights of the products belong to the purchaser. If the parcel does not reach its destination because the purchaser incorrectly entered the delivery address, we don't accept responsibility. Therefore, please enter the delivery address carefully and correctly. In addition, after your order is shipped, we are unable to accept any change or cancellation to your order except for damaged, defective, or wrongly shipped merchandise.

For most cases of DHL Express delivery in EU and some countries, customs clearance fees and taxes are billed upon delivery to the recipient.
