Return Policy

Sequoia Brands Inc. guarantees satisfaction and we will refund the purchase price of any in-stock item that the buyer is not 100% satisfied with. We will accept returns within 30 days from the date of purchase. Returned items are subject to a 15% restocking charge. We must receive the item in the same condition that we shipped it in, with return shipping pre-paid. Items not received in same condition will have additional restock fees to recover the cost of returning the item to resalable condition or discounting the item for an "as is" sale. Custom made or special ordered items may not be returned.

In order to return any item, please fill out the form at http://www.SequoiaBrands.com/Return_Policy.aspx or call us. You will receive a return authorization (RA) number and instructions. Failure to follow the return instructions will result in additional re-stocking fees.

Warranty Returns Policy
Products manufactured by Sequoia Brands Inc. are warranted through us. Items that are warranted through by Sequoia Brands Inc, after receiving a return authorization number, are subject to the following return shipping options.

a. Return the defective part via either insured regular US mail, or insured UPS/Fed Ex ground and we will reimburse your full shipping cost (continental US) when the repaired part is returned to you. If it is found to not be covered by a warranty, a refund will not be issued.

b. Return the defective part via any insured priority, 1, 2, or 3 day service the buyer chooses and we will expedite the repair/replacement and return the part via the same shipper using the same account that the warranted part was shipped to us with. Shipping cost will not be reimbursed under this option.

Our office must receive all items before replacement parts can be shipped. If the customer would like a replacement part shipped prior to us receiving the defective part, the customer must pay full price plus shipping for the replacement part and receive a refund only if the part is found to be defective (see Advanced Replacement Returns Credit Policy for more information). Otherwise the part will be shipped back to the customer as a spare.

There will be a charge for returning parts that are shipped to us without a return authorization number or additional parts that are shipped with parts that have been authorized for return.

Advanced Replacement Warranted Goods Return Policy
Items returned for credit when an advanced replacement has been sent, will be inspected for warrantee authorization. Defective items will be credited back to the customer upon approval. All goods that have been found to not be defective will be returned to the customer at their expense.

Cooperation with Law Enforcement
If we become aware of, through a complaint or otherwise of a violation of the Terms of Use, we may, but are not obligated to, conduct an investigation to determine the nature and extent of the suspected violation and the appropriate enforcement action. You agree to cooperate fully with any such investigation.

We may, in our sole discretion, report actual or perceived violations of law to law enforcement or the appropriate authorities.

Applicable Law
The Terms of Use, Privacy Policy, Shipping Policy and Returns Policy, and the relationship between you and Sequoia Brands Inc. shall be governed by the laws of the State of Florida without regard to its conflict of laws provision.

Any dispute or claim in law or equity arising out of this agreement or any resulting transaction, including disputes or claims involving the parties to this agreement, their officers, agents, or employees, shall be submitted to neutral, non-binding non-appearance-based mediation prior to the commencement of litigation, arbitration, or any other proceeding before a trier of fact. The parties to the dispute or claim agree to act in good faith to participate in mediation, and to identify a mutually acceptable mediator. If a mediator cannot be agreed upon by the parties, each party shall designate a mediator and those mediators shall select a third mediator who shall act as the neutral mediator, assisting the parties in attempting to reach a resolution. All parties to the mediation shall share equally in its cost. The mediation should comply with the following rule: the mediation shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or solely be based on written submissions, the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the mediation, unless personal appearances have been mutually agreed upon prior to the commencement of mediation.

If the dispute or claim is resolved successfully through the mediation, the resolution will be documented by a written agreement executed by all parties. If the mediation does not successfully resolve the dispute or claim, the mediator shall provide written notice to the parties reflecting the same, and the parties may then proceed to seek an alternative form of resolution of the dispute or claim, in accordance with the remaining terms of this agreement. If mediation does not successfully resolve the dispute, you agree that any claim or dispute you may have against Sequoia Brands Inc. or its sites must be resolved exclusively by a state located in or federal court corresponding to Hillsborough County, Florida except as otherwise agreed by the parties or as described in the Alternative Dispute Resolution Option section below. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located in or corresponding to Hillsborough County, Florida for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.

Alternative Dispute Resolution Option
For any claim, excluding claims for injunctive or equitable relief, where the total amount of the award sought is less than $5,000 the party requesting relief may elect to resolve the dispute in a cost effective manner through binding, non-appearance-based arbitration. If a party should choose arbitration, they shall initiate the arbitral process through an established alternative dispute resolution provider mutually agreed upon by the parties. The alternative dispute resolution provider must comply with the following rules:
1. The arbitration shall be conducted online and/or be based on written submissions, the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration;
2. The arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and
3. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

Filing Claims
You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to the use of Sequoia Brands Inc. sites or the Terms of Use must be filed within one year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.

Severability
If any conditions or terms are deemed invalid, void or for any reason unenforceable, that condition shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining condition.

Sequoia Brands Inc. reserves the right to make changes to our sites, policies and terms of use at any time. If Sequoia Brands Inc. fails to exercise or enforce any right or provision contained in the terms of use, it shall not constitute a waiver of said right or provision.
