7. Loss of parcel
Should such a situation arise, P2Life is compelled to respect the time-frames set by the carriers in regard to declaring the loss and the refunding of the shipment. Hence, the Customer is also bound to the same time-frames:
– In order for P2Life to officially declare a parcel lost, the Customer has ten (10) business days to declare the loss of a parcel starting from the date he or she received the shipment confirmation e-mail. Beyond this time period, no claim will be accepted.
– If the parcel was declared as lost within the above mentioned time, P2Life will attend to filing a claim with the carrier. P2Life may eventually ask the Customer for additional documents to complete the composition of the file’s content. The Customer will then need to send the information as soon as possible.
– The final response related to claims is given by the carrier within a one to three-week period. The nature of the response can be one of two types: either the parcel is found and then sent back to the Customer by standard procedure, or the parcel is declared as lost by the carrier and P2Life informs the Customer. In this case, and in accordance with the customer’s wishes, P2Life can make a second shipment of the order or proceed by fully refunding the Customer for the total amount paid.
8. Reception of parcel
When the items are delivered to the Customer, the latter will be asked to sign for the goods as acknowledgement of receipt.
All the parcels are sent in a cardboard box or in padded envelopes.
The Customer must check the parcel. If a parcel comes partly or totally damaged, the Customer’s reservations must be written on the delivery note in the presence of the carrier.
Should no reservation be mentioned, the parcel is considered as delivered in good condition and no subsequent claims or complaints will be accepted by P2Life. Should the customer want to preserve recourse against the courier, he/she must put in a claim in writing to the courier within 3 days (public holidays excluded) following the day of delivery. This claim must be sent by registered letter with a form for acknowledgment of receipt.
Any unclaimed parcel that is returned to P2Life can be sent back to the Customer provided that he/she repays the delivery fees.
