Depending on your country and your bank, in some cases, there may be a small exchange fee applied to your order, that we are not responsible of.
SECTION 5 - PRODUCTS
Certain products may be available exclusively online through the website. These products may have limited quantities and are subject to return or exchange only according to our Return Policy.
We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colors and images of our products that appear at the store. We cannot guarantee that your computer monitor's display of any color will be accurate.
We reserve the right, but are not obligated, to limit the sales of our products or Services to any person, geographic region or jurisdiction. We may exercise this right on a case-by-case basis. We reserve the right to limit the quantities of any products or services that we offer. All descriptions of products or product pricing are subject to change at anytime without notice, at the sole discretion of us. We reserve the right to discontinue any product at any time.

We do not warrant that the quality of any products, services, information, or other material purchased or obtained by you will meet your expectations, or that any errors in the Service will be corrected.
SECTION 6 - DELIVERY
The products are shipped to the delivery address indicated by the customer by filling in the fields when ordering. The invoice will be sent on request to the email address provided by the customer.
The delivery address is the one indicated by the customer who declares to have communicated an exact and complete address, the responsibility of The Gold Flatware cannot be engaged on an wrong address. The customer is responsible for the delivery address indicated at the time of placing the order. If it turns out that the postal services are unable to deliver the package to a customer, due to an incorrect address, the package won't return to The Gold Flatware as the return address is not written on any package. Consequently, it will be lost for the customer as well as for The Gold Flatware, and no refund can be made.
If a package is not delivered to the customer because of an anomaly in the delivery due to the carrier / delivery service, The Gold Flatware may, exceptionally and at its discretion, reship the order at its expense, or offer the buyer a credit equivalent to the amount of the order. No refund will be granted. The Gold Flatware is not responsible for any difficulties that the carrier/delivery service may encounter in delivering the buyer.
The Gold Flatware makes every effort to respect delivery times. The average delivery time for Canada is 10 to 20 business days and for the United States is 15 to 25 business days. Business days are from Monday to Friday included. This period may vary depending on the time of year and may exceptionally reach 45 business days depending on the country of delivery or if an anomaly occurs on the part of the carrier/postal service. Nevertheless, The Gold Flatware cannot be held responsible for the consequences due to a delay in delivery or a loss of the parcel caused by a third party or by the fact of the customer or because of an unforeseeable and insurmountable cause constituting a case of force majeure. The risks are borne by the buyer from the moment the products have left the premises of The Gold Flatware. In the event of damage during transport, a justified protest must be made to the carrier within three days of delivery.
The buyer will have to pay the customs duties, if applicable, or other taxes due on the occasion of the importation of the products in the country of the place of delivery. The formalities related to this are also the exclusive responsibility of the buyer. The buyer is solely responsible for verifying the possibility of importing the ordered Products with regard to the laws of the country of delivery.
If the buyer does not wish to accept the order, they must accept it upon delivery and return the order for a refund. Any package refused upon delivery will not be eligible for a refund from The Gold Flatware. Moreover, if the package must be collected from a collection point, the buyer is required to go there to collect it within the time limit indicated. As the return address of The Gold Flatware is not indicated on the packages, no package can be automatically returned to The Gold Flatware but are returned to a sorting platform. The packages are therefore lost for both the seller and the buyer. In such a situation, The Gold Flatware cannot grant a refund.
For any order indicated as delivered, as evidenced by the carrier's tracking number, no request for refund due to "package not received" will be accepted, the package being indicated as delivered. Unfortunately, many e-merchants are currently facing an upsurge of abuse and unscrupulous customers, wishing to obtain products for free. Therefore, in accordance with the law and in order to curb this fraudulent practice, no exception will be granted. In such a situation, a receipt of complaint at the buyer's local police station will be required in order to validate a reshipment of the order.
SECTION 7 - RETURN POLICY
The products sold by The Gold Flatware are new and guaranteed against any defect.
The Gold Flatware's return policy lasts 14 days after receipt of the order.
If the buyer changes their mind and wishes to obtain a refund of their order, they has 14 days from the date of receipt of their order to send their return request to the Customer Support, via the contact form. If the 14-day period normally expires on a Saturday, Sunday or holiday, it is extended to the next business day.
If the buyer has benefited from an item offered for their order, whatever the reason, such as package lost and undelivered, abnormal delay in delivery, special offer or gift, and they wish to make a return of a part of the said order or of the totality, then the buyer will have to return also the item which was offered to them.
In the event that an item is defective, the buyer has 48 hours after receipt of the order to contact Customer Support. In such a situation, the buyer must send proof of the defect(s) by email (description and photos attached) to Customer Support first via the contact form "Contact Us".
The shipping costs (return shipping costs) are the responsibility of the buyer. It is therefore the responsibility of the customer to pay their own shipping costs to return the item to Canada, where The Gold Flatware is located, to the return address that will be communicated to the buyer by the Customer Support. Shipping costs are not refundable.
If the return is sent from outside of Canada, the buyer is responsible for ensuring that any taxes and customs duties are covered when paying for the return. Only returns that arrive directly at their destination are processed, without any customs formalities or payment from The Gold Flatware. Any customs fees submitted to The Gold Flatware will be deducted from the refund or will result in the refusal of the package.
Refund of the order is due within a maximum of 10 business days from the date of receipt of the returned package(s).
This policy applies to all items sold on The Gold Flatware website.
