You may have to pay import taxes and/or customs duties. You may also be required to pay a brokerage

directly for them. For the avoidance of doubt, JOB will not charge you for, and is not liable to pay, any
customs or brokers charges incurred in delivering goods which have been shipped internationally.
Due to International laws, JOB states the full value of your order on shipping documentation, minus the
shipping charge. As JOB is a retailer, JOB is not able to mark these as ‘gifts’ or ‘personal possessions’. If you
are not familiar with the customs laws in your country, please check with your local customs office to ensure
that the importing of the products you are planning to order from us is allowed and if any additional licenses
or permits are needed. Customs regulations differ by country and not knowing their regulations can result in
your order incurring higher import duties, a delay in delivery or refusal. JOB will not be liable for packages
refused or held by customs.
If your order is returned to us due to a refusal to pay customs fees, refusal to accept the order or because no
one was there to accept delivery of your order or because of a wrong address, you will be refunded the total
amount of the order, minus the shipping charge, 10% of the value of the order as a re-stocking fee, and any
other fees that are incurred by JOB during shipping including but not limited to warehousing fees and return
postage/courier fees. If the cost to return the product to us is larger than the cost of the refund due, we will
abandon the shipment and there will be no credit for the order.
Refunds are not available if you choose postage as a shipping method and your order is lost, although JOB will
give every assistance in trying to help track the consignment.
Any promotions and discounts are given at our discretion and may be withdrawn by us without notice.
18. Risk and Title
From the point of delivery, responsibility for the loss, breakage and damage of any products purchased from
JOB passes entirely to you. Ownership of the items will only pass to you when we receive payment in full of
all sums owing to us, whether for books or for any other goods or services supplied by JOB.
