Upon receiving your order we carry out a standard pre-authorisation check on your payment card to ensure there are sufficient funds to fulfill the transaction. Goods will not be dispatched until this pre-authorisation check has been completed. Your card will be debited once the order has been accepted.

DELIVERY & AVAILABILITY

World-wide shipping rates differ, depending on the country of delivery.

Customers are responsible for paying any additional costs including but not limited to customs, duties, and taxes.

Once you have received your order confirmation, it may take up to 10 working days for the order to reach you, depending on your location. Please note that handmade goods are often produced to order, so delivery times can be up to 4 weeks. You are always welcome to contact us for further information.

Please remember that the postal office does not handle shipment on Saturdays. If by any circumstances your order will be out of stock, this will appear on your invoice. You will be charged by invoice and will thereby only be charged for the items you will receive.

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY POLICY

As a reputable and trusted business committed to offering its customers high quality products, the STEINUM brand recognizes its obligation to ensure that suppliers are operating ethically. We expect our suppliers to consistently provide an environment, which protects their employees’ health and safety and basic human rights. All suppliers are expected to comply with their national employment laws and regulations with particular regard to:

  • Minimum age of employment
  • Freely chosen employment
  • Health and safety
  • Freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining
  • No discrimination
  • No harsh or inhumane treatment
  • Working hours
  • Rates of pay
  • Terms of employment

We also look to our suppliers to instil these principles when dealing with their own supplier base. Because of the sometimes complex nature of our suppliers’ supply chain, it is not always possible to monitor and control the conditions of each individual involved in the production of our products. However, as STEINUM brand continues to grow it recognises the importance of being proactive and doing everything within its power to support the rights of those involved in the manufacture of its goods.

When possible, STEINUM works together with local aid organizations in the areas, where STEINUM products are being produced.
