Before making a complaint about a delay, please note that on standard shipping, the dates provided in the shipping confirmation e-mail are only expected ones.
We cannot give 100% assurance because there are procedures that are beyond our control, for instance, customs that are regulated by local Government guidelines.
The stated period does not include the necessary customs clearance time when your order arrives in the country of destination (in the case of countries outside the European Union. Local customs have their own rules and procedures and unfortunately, we have no power over them.
On orders with delivery by standard shipping:
Due to the e-commerce growth and deliveries available worldwide, with the high number of destination countries, customs and postal services partners, we just consider an order lost after 1 month of the maximum expected delivery time (when shipping to EU) or 2 months after the maximum expected delivery time (when shipping outside EU).

Claims of non-delivery placed more than 3 months after the maximum expected delivery period aren’t accepted.

2. By standard mail and with no delivery attempt made in the period of 2 months (1 month within EU) after exceeding the maximum estimated delivery date provided, when the said period has passed, we may assume that the order is lost and proceed with the refund.
