1. Services in General
This agreement is entered into by and between SKYBOX Inc. dba SKYBOX Checkout (hereinafter referred to as "SKYBOX" or “we”) and You (hereinafter referred to as "Customer"). While you may have been looking at merchandise on a retailer’s website (internet website, mobile app, tablet app, etc.), any purchases that you make through this checkout (SKYBOX Checkout) will be made from SKYBOX Checkout, as more fully described below. By visiting SKYBOX Checkout and/or placing an order for the purchase of merchandise from SKYBOX Checkout, you agree that such order for purchase (a “Purchase”) is bound by the terms & conditions (“Terms & Conditions”) set forth herein.
SKYBOX Checkout always provides the Customer the estimated full landed cost for their order including duties and taxes on a partner retailer’s website. The full landed cost is defined as the total price of a product once it has arrived at a buyer’s door. The full landed cost includes the price of the product, all transportation fees, customs, duties, taxes, insurance, currency conversion, handling, and payment fees. The SKYBOX Checkout service may be integrated directly into the shopping cart of the retailer or be hosted by SKYBOX checkout in a secure iframe.
If you select the full landed cost option at checkout (prepay duties and taxes), we guarantee our estimate and you will never be charged any additional fees for the delivery of your order. However, if you select to pay duties and taxes upon delivery, your local customs authorities may assess the duties, taxes, and clearance fees due differently and we, therefore, cannot guarantee that the amount you will be charged will match our estimation.
Duties and taxes, if they apply, are mandatory and are controlled by the government of the destination country. Altering or marking packages to appear as gifts to avoid duties and taxes is illegal and we will not engage in any alterations to the duties and tax calculation and charges by the governing country.

SKYBOX Checkout’s default return policy is that we do not accept international returns.

To find out if any merchandise that you may purchase or have purchased under a Purchase would fall under Allowable Returns, please see the Retailer’s website to see if an international returns policy (“International Returns Policy”) is listed. Please note that not all Retailers have an International Returns Policy and if they do not, then any reference to such a policy herein is irrelevant for your order.
Allowable Returns: If a retailer has an International Returns Policy listed, it shall take precedence over the previous paragraph. Although your order is with SKYBOX Checkout (and we are ultimately responsible for facilitating the delivery of the order to you and facilitating returns), we have contracted with the Retailer to have them act on our behalf to publish Allowable Returns (relevant to that Supplier’s merchandise) and to receive returns requests. Also, this means that if you want to return any merchandise that you have purchased, you must contact the relevant retailer for a returns authorization. If authorized by the retailer, under the International Returns Policy, either SKYBOX Checkout or the retailer will provide you with information regarding the return and instructions on where to ship your return parcel. If the retailer allows, in its sole discretion under the International Returns Policy, SKYBOX Checkout will reimburse you for any or all of the following, based on the amount that you actually paid: the original sales prices of the returned merchandise, duties, taxes, and any credits or debits. Unless otherwise stated in the International Returns Policy (or otherwise determined by the Retailer in its sole discretion), if merchandise is allowed to be returned hereunder, (a) you are responsible for all costs associated with returning the merchandise (including without limitation shipping costs, duties or taxes imposed for the return, or non-SKYBOX Checkout fees that may be levied or charged) and (b) if you are being reimbursed your original shipping costs (or some part of that) according to Retailer so deciding in its sole discretion, the International Returns Policy or under the relevant law, and you are only returning part of your order, we may only return those shipping costs (or part of those shipping costs) prorated for the merchandise being returned.
