3. DUTIES AND TAXES
International shipping is not inclusive of duties and taxes. Customers are responsible for any customs fees, duties, or taxes that may apply upon delivery. We advise international customers to calculate applicable duties and taxes before purchasing.
Prices shown on our website are in Euros, and include all applicable taxes for Germany 19% VAT (Value-Added Tax). In case you are based outside of the European Union, these taxes do not apply to you. Based on your location, import duties and taxes apply. We do not cover shipping costs, and any additional fees incurred for the delivery of the product(s) are the responsibility of the customer. The total price will therefore vary from the originally stated price based on your location, shipping and other additional costs. The customer is informed of these additional costs during the order process and before the final validation of the order.
