All sales will be effective once VEJA confirms the order. Your order is confirmed by sending you a "We have your order!" email. This email will also indicate that payment has been accepted and billed to your identified payment method. VEJA reserves the right not to confirm an order for any reason (including, but not limited to, item availability, problems with the order received, abnormal order, predictable delivery-related problems, or problems with a previous order). You agree to provide VEJA with truthful and accurate information in your order. Since the information you provide to VEJA is essential for order processing and delivery, for billing and for the establishment of warranty contracts, failure to provide these details accurately and completely will result in the cancellation of your order.

 

 When your order status is indicated as "Payment accepted", you will have two (2) hours in which to cancel your order. You can cancel your order directly on the order confirmation page by going to "My Orders" in your account. Where your order status is different or after the two-hour time limit has lapsed, you will be unable to cancel your order.

 

In the event of an order cancellation, please allow up to five (5) business days after the cancellation is recorded for a refund to be issued. If we are only able to fulfill part of your order, payment will be made for your entire order and, once the products are shipped, a refund will be made for the unavailable products.
