TERMS & CONDITIONS OF USE
Welcome to www.smittenkittenonline.com. The Smitten Kitten provides its services to you subject to the following conditions. Please take a few minutes to review these Conditions. These are Terms and Conditions concerning your use of The Smitten Kitten Web site. By accessing and using this Web site, you agree to be bound by the following Terms and Conditions. If you do not agree with any of these Terms and Conditions, do not use The Smitten Kitten Web site.
In addition, when you use any current or future www.smittenkittenonline.com service or visit or purchase from any business affiliated with www.smittenkittenonline.com, whether or not included in the www.smittenkittenonline.com Web site, you also will be subject to the guidelines and conditions applicable to such service or business.
SHIPPING & DELIVERY
The risk of loss and title for all merchandise ordered on this Web site pass to you when the merchandise is delivered to the shipping carrier. The Smitten Kitten uses the United States Postal Service (USPS) and United Parcel Service of America (UPS) as its carriers. USA shipping & handling rates are based upon weight of each individual package/items and the postage cost for the shipping carrier and service you select.
Please be aware that the United Parcel Service (UPS) will require a signature for delivery. This measure is taken to ensure your privacy and the security of your package. Your package will not be left at your doorstep, in your lobby, etc. without a signature. For more information on UPS shipping procedures, please visit www.ups.com.
The United States Postal Service (USPS) will NOT require a signature for delivery unless you request signature confirmation at the time you place your order. For more information on USPS shipping procedures, please visit www.usps.com.
A shipping and handling fee is applied to all orders. The shipping and handling cost is a non-negotiable flat rate fee that covers the cost of postage as well as handling and packaging costs. If a delivery is refused by the customer without Smitten Kitten authorization, a fee for return shipment and/or a restocking fee may be deducted from any potential refund. While we strive to expedite and deliver all orders as quickly as possible, we ask all customers to allow us 7-10 business days for delivery time after The Smitten Kitten has processed your order, although an order may be delivered in quicker time. Once an order is placed into our database, it takes time to process in fulfillment and ship out. Postal delays can increase delivery times.
For purposes of identification, billing and marketing, you agree to provide The Smitten Kitten with current, accurate, complete, and updated information required by the registration for online ordering, including your legal name, address and telephone number(s). You agree to notify The Smitten Kitten immediately of any changes in your registration data. Proceeding with the registration process indicates your intent to comply with this term.

Your acceptance of these Terms and Conditions constitutes the acceptance of web delivery of invoices and notifications in lieu of any other submission from The Smitten Kitten and failure to receive any other form of this data is not defensible grounds for non-payment of monies due from you to The Smitten Kitten.
