Welcome to www.sugartheshop.com. Sugar provides its services to you subject to the following conditions. Please take a few minutes to review these Conditions. By accessing and using this Web site, you agree to be bound by the following Terms and Conditions. If you do not agree with any of these Terms and Conditions, please do not use this web site.

In addition, when you use any current or future www.sugartheshop.com service or visit or purchase from any business affiliated with Sugar, whether or not included in the Sugar web site, you also will be subject to the guidelines and conditions applicable to such service or business.

SHIPPING & DELIVERY

The risk of loss and title for all merchandise ordered on this Web site pass to you when the merchandise is delivered to the shipping carrier. Sugar uses the United States Postal Service (USPS) as its carrier. USA shipping & handling rates are based upon weight of each individual package/items.

A shipping and handling fee is applied to all orders. The shipping and handling cost is a non-negotiable flat rate fee that covers the cost of postage as well as handling and packaging costs. If a delivery is refused by the customer without authorization from Sugar, a fee for return shipment and/or a restocking fee may be deducted from any potential refund. While we strive to expedite and deliver all orders as quickly as possible, we ask all customers to allow us 7-10 business days for delivery time after Sugar has processed your order, although orders are frequently delivered more quickly.

YOUR ACCOUNT

For purposes of identification, billing and marketing, you agree to provide Sugar with current, accurate, complete, and updated information required by the registration for online ordering, including your legal name, address and telephone number(s).
