The products and services available on the Site, and any samples thereof we may provide to you, are for personal use only.

4. Policies and procedures for orders and purchases
When placing an order using a credit card or debit card, two transactions will be posted to your account.
a. The issuing bank for your payment card will place a hold on the funds in your account in the amount of your purchase when an order is authorized. This action reserves the funds for the pending charge
b. You will subsequently be charged for the order which removes the funds from your account. The charge may vary from the amount of the authorization hold if the order is altered or cancelled prior to shipment
c. If an order is cancelled, the authorization hold will be removed by the issuing bank. For details on the removal of authorization holds, please contact the issuing bank’s customer service. Because each bank has its own process, unfortunately, we cannot provide assistance with the removal of authorization holds.
5. Payment verification
All purchases are subject to bank authorization prior to processing. Only authorized purchases will be processed and shipped.
6. Cancellation of orders
If you would like to cancel an online order after it has been placed, please contact us by phone at 1-800-674-3233 within one hour of placement. We will do our best to accommodate your request. Once an order is processing, we regret that it cannot be changed or cancelled.
If for any reason your order was cancelled due to difficulty in processing payment information, errors in shipping address, or for any other valid reason, you will be notified by email to indicate the reason. If you have any questions, please call Qemira.com customer service at 1-800-674-3233 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
