* For free shipping we use the
carrier of our choice. If an order is returned to us as "Undeliverable" for
whatever reason, customer is responsible for the return shipping charge (if
applicable) plus the resending shipping charge. The order cannot be modified in
anyway to avoid the resending shipping charge. If the order is cancelled, the
invoice total - minus the original shipping charge plus the return shipping
charge (if applicable) - will be refunded. --- If we authorize the return
of product that was ordered under the free shipping offer and your resulting
order total drops below the $100$70 threshold, we will deduct the price of
delivery from your refunded amount.
