You have 10 days from the time that you receive the shipment (tracked through shipping carrier) to return the products you have purchased. If within the 10 days you are not satisfied, you may send your product back through our return policy guidelines that are explained further in this section. The customer is responsible for all shipping costs of the product being shipped back to our store located in Madison, Wisconsin. The item that you are returning must be in original condition. This means the product must be fully operating to its maximum ability and MUST be in original packaging. It must be in a “resale condition”. Any product sent back that has cosmetic or other damage, will be denied and no refund will be issued. If the item that you are returning is received by us and does not meet our criteria of "resale condition," we will not issue any credit. Shipping and handling fees are non-refundable.
Once the order is placed and shipped the order should be accepted by the addressee. If the package is refused the customer will be liable for any return fee charged by the carrier. The carriers use the same service to return a refused package as it was originally shipped and charge accordingly.
Items we do not accept returns on:
Any CD/Software that is opened from its packaging
If the product packaging is missing.
If some parts of the product is missing.
If the product has been subject to any usage not recommended by the manufacturer.
If there are any signs of damage to the product.

A 15% restocking fee may apply if the customer returns the products outside of our return policy within 10 days of receiving the order.

By pre-registering you will aid the store and the instructor in making the necessary preparations so you have a fun and enjoyable learning experience. Space will be limited for most classes and events, so early registration is highly recommended.

If the class or event is cancelled due to weather, or other unforeseen events, the class will be rescheduled. If the class is not rescheduled, your fee will be refunded in full.
If you are unable to attend, you must contact the store at least 5 days prior to the class or event to receive a full refund. Failure to notify us will result in the forfeiture of any and all fees paid. You may have someone attend in your place, but you must notify us of this change.
