If the item is ever lost by the carrier, the user must seek out the insurance claims to that carrier in that result, leaving Tech Twurl not accountable for those loses. If there is any extra insurance purchased by the customer, Tech Twurl ensures the customer to be fully liable on our behalf.
If there are any extra costs for the insurance or returns applied, Tech Twurl will state the additional costs and will request the extra amount sent via check or PayPal before the product is returned.

The customer takes full responsibility for any losses or damages to the product during the shipment to Tech Twurl. A tracking number will be included with the prepaid shipping label to prevent such damages or loses to the product while it’s being processed through our carrier.
Tracking Your Items
Once we receive your order we will notify you via email confirming the arrival of your item(s). Upon inspection of the order, we will again notify you.

Tech Twurl will use the best of its judgment to determine the product value, and if the product is consistent with your description via inspection, includes all accessories mentioned, and arrives to us within thirty days of your order, Tech Twurl will agree to pay. Tech Twurl reserves the right to change any prices based on discrepancies that may occur during inspection. Items are to be described as either:

Tech Twurl will either donate the item to a charitable organization, a nonprofit organization, or recycle it responsibly. Based on your request we can allow you to choose which charity to donate an item to.
