Shipping and Insurance

All shipments are fully insured for their sale value. In the case of a lost package, we must be notified within thirty (30) days from the ship date of your order. Should anything happen while your package is in transit to you, you might be permitted to claim coverage under our insurance policy provided that you directly receive the package from the common carrier. Neither we, nor our insurance company, accepts (and we specifically disclaim) responsibility if you have left instructions with any carrier or delivery service to leave parcels for you without the need for your signature. Nor do we, nor our insurance company, accept (and we specifically disclaim) responsibility if you have given any carrier or delivery service instructions to leave your package with someone else, such as a building manager, neighbour, or a drop-off location such as Mail Boxes Etc., The UPS Store, or similar third party drop off locations. In any such case, your package will not be covered for insurance by LPM or our insurance carrier. If you do not receive the package directly from the common carrier, you agree to take all reasonable actions to assist in recovery of the package, including but not limited to filing out reports (and/or police reports) and providing all information needed or that may be requested to assist in recovery of the package. If you do not fully cooperate in recovery efforts, neither LPM nor our insurance company or carrier, will have any liability to you.

Taxes and Duties
All fees quoted herein and on the LPM website are exclusive of sales tax. There is no Hong Kong sales tax on our products. However, should the User request delivery of physical Precious Metals to a location outside Hong Kong, taxes and duties, including Value Added Taxes (VATs), may be applicable, depending on the country of import. The User, in agreeing to these Terms and Conditions, acknowledges that any taxes or duties, including VATs, will be the sole responsibility of the User and LPM will not be held liable for any fees, and that the User will be responsible for any importation compliance.
If your order is returned to LPM due to your refusal to pay duties or taxes, or if the carrier (for example, Federal Express or UPS) was unable to deliver your order, you agree you are responsible for any return shipping fees, additional duties, or applicable taxes for returning the package back to LPM. In addition, if your package is returned to LPM, we will not reship your order unless and until we are paid in full for any return shipping costs, duties, taxes we have had to pay or advance for you as well as any subsequent re-ship fees back to you.
International returns on orders are very costly and we strongly suggest making yourself aware of any duties or taxes before packages are shipped to avoid surprises. In addition, we strongly suggest making yourself available to the delivery company so your package is not returned to LPM, subjecting you to unnecessary taxes, duties, shipping costs or delays. Delays for LPM re-ships could take 4-6 weeks or longer to complete when packages are not received as they should be.
Once you have placed your order with LPM, you have entered into a binding legal agreement and cannot cancel your confirmed order. You can however sell the products back to us at our buy back price. This involves a spread between buy and sell prices and will be deducted from your deposit or payment.
LPM reserves the right to refuse or cancel an order for any reason or for no reason at all, regardless of payment method or price confirmation, including without limitation, for orders LPM deems questionable or suspicious, for orders LPM deems to be a significant risk, when the confirmed price is incorrect, for abrupt movements in the precious metals market, and/or when LPM does not receive payment within the allotted timeframe.
LPM is not responsible for pricing or typographical errors and expressly reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to cancel any and all orders placed with respect to such items.
