Discount Catholic Store, Inc. Terms & Conditions
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS WEBSITE. All users of this site agree that access to and use of this site are subject to the following terms and conditions and other applicable law. If you do not agree to these terms and conditions, please do not use this site. 

Privacy
We do not share customer information with anyone.  If we have a supplier ship something directly to you, they will only have your name and address for the purpose of that shipment.


Cancellations
If you would like to cancel an order, please send us an email and we will give you a full refund if your order has not already been shipped. If an order has already been shipped, we cannot cancel it but it can be returned for a refund. Please note, the following items cannot be cancelled even before shipment: All Concrete Statues, Statuary 32" and taller, 14Kt. Gold items, all Votive Stands, all Stations of the Cross sets, Gift Certificates and items that have already been engraved or embroidered.  Custom made items also cannot be cancelled.  Custom made items are items that say in the description, "we custom make these".  

Returns
If you would like to return merchandise, please email us at Info@DiscountCatholicStore.com within 7 days of receiving it and we will give you a Return Authorization Number along with instructions on how to return it. Once we receive the merchandise back from  you we will refund you for the item(s). If your item had free shipping, there is a 15% restocking fee for the return.  If you ordered an outdoor vinyl statue, there is a 15% restocking fee as well.  The returned merchandise must be postmarked no later than 10 days after the date of purchase.  We cannot reimburse for the original shipping charges or the shipping cost to send an order back to us.

Please note, the following items are not returnable: 14Kt. gold items, Gift Certificates, software CD's, opened DVD's, holy water, holy oil, engraved items, embroidered items, all nativity sets or pieces, all concrete (cement) statues, statuary 32" and taller, all votive stands, all Stations of the Cross sets and custom made items.  Custom made items are items that say in the description, "we custom make these".

If a package is refused or returned as undeliverable (that was shipped UPS or Fed Ex,) you are responsible for paying an additional shipping fee which will be identical to the shipping fee you originally paid PLUS the additional $7.00 fee Fed Ex charges for refused packages.  By agreeing to these Terms & Conditions, you agree to allow us to charge your credit card for that additional shipping fee.  The reason for this is that when a package is refused, UPS & Fed Ex will ship the package back to us the same way it was originally shipped and they will charge us an additional shipping fee to return the package.  We are simply passing that fee back to the customer.  Rather than refuse a package, it is best to accept it and then return it.  

If a package is refused, or returned as undeliverable, that was shipped via United States Postal Service, there is no fee for the refusal because the USPS does not charge a fee for refused packages.  They return them for free. 

Of course, if the undeliverable package is undeliverable due to the fault of Discount Catholic Store, Inc., the customer will not be held responsible for any return fees.  

If a customer types in the wrong address into the check out form and the package has to be re-routed to get it to its correct destination, the customer is responsible for paying an additional shipping fee which is identical to the original shipping fee paid on their order.  By using this web site and agreeing to our terms and conditions, the customer gives Discount Catholic Store permission to charge their credit card for this extra shipping fee, if the customer wrote the wrong address on their form and did not notify us in writing with a correction.

Back Ordered Items
If an item is back ordered, we are happy to offer a substitute or a full refund.

Damaged Merchandise
If you receive an item that is damaged, contact us within 3 business days and we will replace it with the identical product at no charge.  Once we receive the damaged item back we will mail out an identical replacement.

Returned Checks
There is a $25.00 fee for returned checks.

International Shipments
Please read the information below carefully!

By placing an order with Discount Catholic Store, Inc., customers outside of the continental United States, agree to the terms below.  For international shipments (shipments outside the continental US) these policies supersede our usual domestic shipment policies.

Credit Card Payments Only

Most international orders are shipped "Airmail Letter Post" which takes 4 - 7 days to arrive, however, sometimes customs delays in the receiving country can extend this time frame.  On rare occasions there may even be instances where customs may hold a package up to 12 weeks.  We cannot ship UPS 2nd Day or UPS Overnight to countries outside the continental US (this includes Canada, Hawaii and all other US territories.)

Indemnity
Variance in the quality of postal services throughout the world entails an inherent risk.  International shipping is at the risk of the customer and the customer agrees to not hold Discount Catholic Store, Inc. responsible if a package (merchandise) arrives late or damaged or gets lost in the mail.

Items that Cannot Be Shipped Internationally
