Returns:

The Releases will accept returns of goods within 30 days of shipment date based upon the following criteria: 

All returns require a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number. Requests for an RMA can be emailed to: Returns@753academy.com. Include the following information in all RMA email requests: receipt or invoice number from original shipment, quantity to be returned, and reason for return.

 

Additional goods returned but not authorized on the RMA document will not be accepted as a return or reimbursed. The Releases will notify the customer (“Buyer”) via email and phone call regarding the non-authorized goods received. The Releases are not responsible for incorrect contact information as provided by the Buyer, or for the Buyer not checking their email or phone numbers as provided to the Releases at time of order. The Releases are not required to actually speak with the Buyer or confirm the Buyer received the Releases notification of receiving a non-authorized good. The Buyer will have the option to have the goods shipped back to the Buyer at the Buyer's expense. If the Buyer does not respond within 15-days of being notified via email or phone call of the non-authorized goods being received by the Releases, the goods shall be determined to be “lost and found” goods. The Releases reserves all rights as the Releases owned property to the goods determined to be “lost and found” and reserves all rights to take action on goods to include disposal, hold, or resale. Any goods returned not in accordance with this written policy will not be accepted as a return or reimbursed, and the above procedures will be taken. If the applicable Buyer is not able to be contacted under the above circumstances, the goods in question will be determined to be lost and found goods. 

All returns are subject to restock fee of 25% unless return is a result of an error made by the Releases or for Nonconforming Goods (identified below). If the manufacturer of the product assesses a fee exceeding 25%, the Buyer will be assessed the difference in addition to the Releases restocking fee accordingly.

 

Inspection and Rejection of Nonconforming Goods. The Buyer shall inspect the received Goods within 10- days of receipt (the “Inspection Period”). Buyer will be deemed to have accepted the Products in the condition received and thus not eligible for consideration as a Nonconforming Product, unless it notifies the Releases in writing of any Nonconforming Products during the Inspection Period and furnishes such written evidence or other documentation as required by the Releases. Buyer must contact the Releases by following the Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) procedures identified above. “Nonconforming Goods” means only the following: (i) product shipped is different than identified in Buyer’s purchase; or (ii) product’s label or packaging incorrectly identifies its contents.

 

If Buyer timely notifies the Releases within the 10-days of receipt of any Nonconforming Products, the Releases shall, in its sole discretion, (i) replace such Nonconforming Products with conforming Products (if available), or (ii) credit or refund the Price for such Nonconforming Products, together with the selected method of paid shipping expenses incurred by the Buyer in connection there with the original purchase. If 753 Academy LLC exercises its option to replace Nonconforming Products and Buyer followed the RMA procedures identified above, a prepaid shipping label will be provided to the Buyer to return the item to 753 Academy LLC. 753 Academy LLC shall, after receiving Buyer’s shipment of Nonconforming Product, ship to Buyer, at Buyer’s expense and risk of loss, the replaced Goods to the Delivery Location. Buyer acknowledges and agrees that the remedies set forth in this section are Buyer’s exclusive remedies for the delivery of Nonconforming Products. Except as provided under this section, all sales of Products to Buyer are made on a one-way basis and Buyer has no right to return Products purchased under this Agreement to 753 Academy LLC.

All authorized returns must be sent using the Releases provided prepaid shipping label.

All shipping costs are the responsibility of the customer returning the product, unless specified differently in these terms of return.
