With the denominations ”we”, ”our”, and “us” are meant Leather & Letters. If you are below 18 years of age you need permission from your legal guardian to place an order in the Online Shop. By using the Online Shop and/or placing an order, you accept these general terms and conditions (the ”General Terms and Conditions”). Leather & Letters reserves the right to – from time to time - amend these General Terms and Conditions. Any changes that Leather & Letters makes will enter into force no earlier than thirty (30) days after the revised General Terms and Conditions have been made available in the Online Shop.
Ordering & Acceptance of Purchases
All orders are made through Etsy.com. Before you submit your order, you will be given the opportunity to review your selection, check the total price of your order and correct any input errors. Leather & Letters does not guarantee that all items included in the Etsy Shop are in stock at the time of your ordering meaning that items in your shopping basket are not reserved and therefore may no longer be available once you place your order. In the event that an item is unavailable, we will contact you as soon as possible by e-mail to the e-mail address that you have provided to us at the time of your placing of the order. After submitting your order in the Etsy Shop, we will send you an order summary to the e-mail address that you have provided to us at the time of your placing of the order. The order summary contains your order number, details of the item that you have ordered and delivery particulars. Please note that the order summary is not an acceptance of the order but a mere acknowledgement that we have received your order. Once the order has been processed and we see that the items that you have ordered are available and that all other information that you have provided is complete, we will send a confirmation of your purchase to the e-mail address that you have provided to us at the time of your placing of the order. The confirmation of your purchase contains shipping information. Make sure to submit the correct billing and shipping address to avoid delivery delays. We do not accept delivery to post office boxes, army post office addresses or to any similar addresses. We reserve the right to – in our total discretion – not accept your order.
We reserve the right to change the prices of the items sold in the Etsy Shop at any time and without any notice. Change in price will of course not apply for items already purchased by you. Leather & Letters reserves the right to cancel any order prior to dispatch should we find that the price is incorrect. In such a case we will notify you by e-mail to the e-mail address that you have provided to us at the time of your placing of the order. If we are unable to contact you, your order will be automatically cancelled. If you have been charged the wrong amount in the Online Shop, Leather & Letters will give you the option of placing a new order with the correct price or canceling your order. Periodic sales and/or campaign offers are valid - unless otherwise stated - as long as the items are available in stock and/or until the end date of the periodic sale and/or the campaign offer is reached under the terms specified in each offer/campaign.
European Union countries (excl. Åland Island). All prices shown in the Etsy Shop include applicable Value Added Tax (VAT), but exclude delivery charges (see information on delivery charges below). Non EU countries (incl. Åland Island) Please bear in mind that all items ordered from our Etsy Shop are shipped from Sweden. This means that if you live outside the European Union or on Åland Island, you will not be charged for VAT under Swedish laws, but you can, and probably will, be charged for tax, duty, import, brokerage fees and/or other additional fees (“Additional Fees”) upon receiving the package. Note that you, as a customer, are responsible for payment of the Additional Fees - Leather & letters will not compensate you for the Additional Fees that may be added to deliveries outside of EU. Leather & Letters is unable to calculate the exact amount of Additional Fees, since these Additional Fees are imposed directly by your local customs. Please note that Leather & Letters doesn’t take any part of these Additional Fees as they are out of our control. We recommend that you contact your local customs office before placing your order, for further information on current Additional Fees. UPS will invoice you for these Additional Fees upon delivery of your order, through cash, check or invoice, and needs to be paid in for you to be entitled to collect the package.
Etsy accept all major credit and debit cards (VISA, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro and Discover).
Credit and debit cards
You will be able to enter your payment details at the time of your placing of your order using a valid credit or debit card (VISA, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro and Discover). The applicable amount will immediately be reserved on your card but will not be debited until your item is dispatched.
The transaction is processed by Etsy, www.etsy.com, in order to ensure fast and secure payment which meets the PCI DSS v3.1 requirements. Leather & letters does not save your card details. All information is encrypted using client-side encryption and sent to Etsy via secure servers (SSL/HTTPS).
Etsy reserves the right to check the validity of the credit or debit card, its credit status in relation to the order value and whether the address data that you have provided correlates with the address data of the credit or debit card. Etsy and Leather & Letters may refuse orders depending on the result of these controls. In light of the above, it is advisable to make sure that you have sufficient funds on your credit or debit card before you place your order. Credit card companies may block foreign online purchases for security reasons why you need to contact your credit card company and ask them to remove such blocks if applicable.
Leather & Letters aim is to always deliver your purchased items as quickly as possible. If the items that you have ordered are available in stock, the delivery time is normally 4-7 business days from the time that you receive a confirmation of your purchase from us. The delivery time is calculated from the time you receive the confirmation of the purchase until the purchased item is available for you to pick-up at your nearest service point. If the item that you have purchased is not available in stock or delays are caused due to other circumstances, delivery times may be longer. Delivery time might be longer during periods of sales and public holidays. Leather & Letters is not responsible for any delays caused by customs clearance processes. Even though Leather & Letters aims to deliver the items that you have purchased within the communicated time frame, delivery may take longer. For our Swedish customers, packages are sent out with PostNord Sverige AB (“PostNord”) and you will get a text message or notification via regular mail when your package is ready for collection at your local PostNord service point. For customers outside Sweden, packages are sent with PostNord AB. If your package is lost you need to contact us as soon as possible so that we can initiate an investigation with our delivery service partner. The investigation takes up to ten (10) business days and we will be in contact via e-mail once the investigation is finished.
If you do not pick up your purchased item at the applicable service point, Leather & Letters will charge you for the actual costs for freight charges and return freight charges.

Furthermore, if your handling of the item that you are returning has resulted in a decreased value of the item due to wear or handling to an extent beyond what is reasonable in order for you to try out/test the item, Leather & Letters will make a deduction of the refund corresponding to the amount of the loss of value of the item.
You can exchange items into different sizes and colors provided that the item that you would like to exchange for has the same price as the item you´re returning.

If you want to exchange to an item that cost more than the item that you would like to exchange, we refer to your cancelation right above. All exchange orders to countries outside the European Union are sent with the marking "Warranty Replacement Order". This explains for your local customs authority that you have already paid taxes and duties for your original package, and that this is a replacement item. Should your local customs authority insist upon and issue taxes and duties again you will need to show proof that the exchange is an exchange and that you have already paid the taxes and duties, and that you have sent the original item back to us. Please make sure to have the tracking number for your return and the receipt for the taxes and duties at hand.
