7.2 As described in more detail in the relevant sections, payments with Credit Card or PayPal exclusively require an authorization, in other words booking the money with no actual charge when the Customer enters the orders. Payment is actually charged to the Customer only when the Products are turned over to the courier in charge of the shipment. At this point, KSTARS COSMETICS also issues the invoice relating to the order.
7.3 The purchased Products may be paid by means of credit card, C.O.D. or, when available, , according to the methods specified here below:
Online credit cards
The following credit cards are accepted: Visa, Mastercard.

The amount of the order is not immediately debited on the card, but instead during a subsequent phase, within the limits authorized by Client.
When the order is entered on KSTARS COSMETICS’s Website, an authorization will be requested only for payment of the indicated amount (very often, the bank which issued the card sends a SMS/e-mail to the Client at this time).
This authorization does not mean that the money has been debited, but simply that the corresponding amount has been “booked”.
The amount due will actually be debited once the order is turned over to the courier, forwarding company or any other subject authorized by KSTARS COSMETICS to carry out the delivery.
This guarantees that the order amount is debited on the credit card only at the time of the actual shipment of the Products and only for the amount relating to the Products actually shipped.
Users may directly pay the courier that delivers the ordered Products.
For this payment method, cash only is accepted. The Couriers will not accept bank cheques or cashier's cheques, and will not deliver the Products unless it receives the exact amount indicated on the order. The courier is not authorized to give change.
8. Shipping Methods and Charges

8.5. Deliveries are made from Monday to Friday, during normal business hours, except on national holidays, according to the terms and conditions set forth by the courier chosen by the Client. The delivery is deemed to have been completed when the Products are made available to the Client at the address specified on the order form. In the case of "Standard Delivery", if the Products cannot be delivered due to absence of the recipient at the specified address, the postal worker will leave a delivery card and the shipment will be available to pick up from the Post Office for approximately ten (10) working days. After this period, the products will be returned to KSTARS COSMETICS. In the case of "Express Delivery", if the Products cannot be delivered due to absence of the recipient at the specified address, the courier will attempt to contact the Client to reschedule delivery. If no contact can be made, the courier will attempt to redeliver and, if this is unsuccessful due to absence of the recipient, the courier will make a further attempt to contact the Client to schedule a new delivery time. If the courier is unable to contact the Client within five (5) working days or in the event of a further failure to deliver due to absence of the recipient, the Products in the order will be returned to KSTARS COSMETICS. Once 30 (thirty) days have elapsed from the date the Products listed in an order were returned to KSTARS COSMETICS because it was not possible to complete the delivery, the Purchase Agreement will be terminated and the order cancelled. KSTARS COSMETICS will then proceed to refund the amount paid by the Client, net of the costs incurred to return the Products and of expenses for their storage at the facilities of the courier in charge of their delivery.
8.6 Termination of the Purchase Agreement and the amount of the refund will be notified via e-mail. The refund amount will be credited on the payment method used by the Client for the purchase. In the event that, before the 30-day period elapses, the Client once again requests to receive the purchased Products, KSTARS COSMETICS will proceed with the new delivery after debiting the charges for this new delivery as well as the costs for returning the Products to KSTARS COSMETICS and the storage fees.

(a) that the tamper-proof label is intact and the packaging has not been damaged or otherwise altered; and
(b) that the number of delivered pieces matches the amount indicated in the shipping document.
8.8 The Client must immediately report any damage to the tamper-proof label, to the packaging or to the Products or if the number of units/packages or indications do not match, by contacting KSTARS COSMETICS’s Customer Service via one of the methods set out in paragraph 1.3 above, indicating the order for which these problems occurred.
8.9 Events outside the reasonable control of the parties, including but not limited to unavailability of means of transportation and unforeseen or unavoidable events (e.g. natural disasters, extreme weather, industrial action) that result in a delay in deliveries or make deliveries difficult or impossible or cause significant increases in KSTARS COSMETICS's delivery expenses, will give the latter the right to split up, resend or cancel the order, in full or in part, or to cancel the Purchase Agreement. In these cases, KSTARS COSMETICS must immediately inform the Client of its decision by sending an e-mail to the address provided by Client, with the Client only being entitled to a refund of any sums already paid, excluding any other claims against KSTARS COSMETICS for any reason.

10.5 If the Client terminates the Purchase Agreement, all the payments made in favour of KSTARS COSMETICS will be refunded, including costs of delivery (excluding the additional costs arising from the choice by the Client of a type of delivery different from the least expensive method available, i.e. the “standard method”), without undue delay and in any case not later than 14 days from the day KSTARS COSMETICS receives the Products back or, if earlier, the day the Client provides proof of return. In the event that no goods were supplied, the refund will be made no later than 14 days from the date on which KSTARS COSMETICS was informed of the Client's decision to terminate the Purchase Agreement. Refunds will be made using the same method of payment used by the Client for the purchase of the Products, unless it is expressly agreed otherwise. In any case, the Client will not bear any cost, except for the costs outlined in paragraph 10.6 below.
10.6 The Client must send back the Products or deliver to KSTARS COSMETICS, without undue delay and in any case within 14 days from the day of the exercise of the right to withdrawal.

Where Products show signs of unreasonable use leading to diminished value refunds will be reduced accordingly. Products that are returned should only have been handled to the extent necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the Products.
