When you place an order with us we will treat it as an offer to purchase from us and that you are happy with the Terms and Conditions you have agreed to by shopping in our web store. We go as far as asking customers to tick a box to say they have read and agree to these before a payment can be made. We will send you an automated e-mail to confirm receipt of your order so do make sure you enter your email correctly. Please carefully read this e-mail and take the opportunity to check the details and contact us if you have made any errors Also please check that the address you have given us is your correct one. We reserve the right to refuse your order or request additional information should we require it.

Your call will be dealt with personally by Julie, the shop owner.
We no longer accept payment by cheque or postal order. We are happy to accept postal payments of cash but customers must ring prior to sending a cash order so that we can deduct the required items from stock. Cash payments are sent at the customers own risk and we will not make any reimbursement for cash lost in the post.
We usually ship on Mondays Wednesdays and Fridays (excluding bank holidays) although this can vary. We always keep customers notified of any changes to posting days/times due to national holidays or other reasons etc in our News Section.

Customs Import Duty for Orders Sent Outside the UK
If you receive an invoice for import duty before your order can be delivered/collected then it is your responsibility to pay this. Miss Discreet is not liable to pay any import duty or other fees you may be charged and it is not possible for us to give you a figure of how much these additional costs could be so please take these extra costs into consideration before placing an order.
We have to legally attach a Customs Declaration on the outside of the package so that your government can calculate the fees payable before you can receive/collect your order. If you are in any doubt about this then please check with your local authorities prior to placing your order.Miss Discreet cannot be held responsible for any packages opened, damaged or seized by Customs. Also if a customer wishes to return an item from outside of the UK that requires a customs declaration, then you must stipulate on the parcel that this is a returned item as we again cannot be held responsible for import duty on items returned to us. You may need to ask your chosen postal service/courier about this. Please note that if an order is returned to us then a refund of the cost of the item/s will be made but do bear in mind this will be minus any initial postage costs charged at the time the order was placed.
If for any reason you wish to return an item that is not covered by our hygiene policy it is important that you email us within 7 days for a return reference number. The item/s must be in their original condition and unworn/unwashed with original packaging and the swing tag still attached. The item/s must also be returned from a cigarette smoke free environment and within 7 days of receipt. No P&P will be refunded and return postage must be covered by the buyer.
Please see above paragraph titled Customs Import Duty for any items being returned from outside the EEC that require a customs declaration. All overseas customers must mark on the outside of the package "returned item of no commercial value" to help with customs clearance.
