Your personal data will not be handed over to third parties. However, we reserve the right to hand over your personal data to authorities if you act in violation of law and good practice.
We use your personal data for direct marketing only if you give us your permission.
You have the right to check, modify or delete information about yourself from our customer register. If you would like to make changes to your personal data, please contact our customer service: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We try our best to guarantee the availability of all products. However, it may sometimes happen that a product is not available and we reserve the right not to accept your order. In this case, we are in contact with you to find the best solution. If the order information is unclear and we cannot get in contact with you, we also reserve the right not to accept the order.
When ordering you will see the current product prices including VAT. Shipping cost will be calculated based on your selected products and delivery country. You will see shipping cost for your order in the shopping cart before confirming your order.
Prices and shipping costs are processed in EUR. If there is a clear price error in a product price and it can be assumed that you have understood the mistake, we will contact you and the product price will be corrected.
When selling and delivering products to EU countries, displayed prices include VAT according to Finnish legislation.
When selling and delivering products outside the EU, you as customer are responsible for possible local taxes, customs duties, and other similar costs.
Delivery method in Finland: Posti.
Delivery method international: Posti in cooperation with local delivery companies.
The products will be sent to you once you have made the payment according to the payment terms. By deliveries in Finland your order will be delivered to the nearest Posti pickup location. By international deliveries your order will be delivered to the shipping address or to the nearest pickup location.
We use third party contract for the deliveries and this might have an effect on delivery time. However, we will process your order during the same or next weekday, so the normal delivery time in Finland is 2 to 5 days. International delivery time is 3 to 15 days. For special orders the delivery time is case specific.
If you do not pick up your parcel on time, it will return to us. A non-collected parcel is not an order cancelation, so we will charge you for shipping and handling.
The Shop is not responsible for any delays or other damages resulting from force majeure. Such can be e.g. strikes, decisions by authorities, disruptions in transport or illness of personnel.
Delivery costs are country specific. The destination country may charge VAT or other customs duties which are not included in our prices. You are responsible for these. The Shop does not pay any return costs for orders delivered outside of Finland.
You have the right to cancel your order by informing The Finland Shop Oy within 30 days after receiving your order. You must also return the product immediately after cancelling your order (within 14 days of the cancellation notice). However, the cancellation does not apply to products that have been modified or manufactured according to your specifications.
The requirement for a cancellation is that the product is in such a condition that it can be sold to another customer. Anything but opening the product packaging and checking the product is considered as use of the product. All parts of the product should be returned and the product must be packed in the original packaging or in an equivalent packaging.
We will refund all received payments or price differences for the cancelled order for the same payment method you used when paying in the Shop. We will also refund shipping costs for orders in Finland if the entire order is cancelled. When cancelling a part of an order, we will charge a shipping fee, which is deducted from the refundable amount.
Please contact us at email@example.com within 30 days after receiving your order. If the product is damaged, wrong or faulty, attach clear picture of the item and its package to your email.
We will reply with further instructions.
Once the cancellation has been confirmed pack the product and all parts in the original packaging. If the product package is damaged, pack the products in similar way so that they return unbroken, thank you! Please include also the filled return form.

Please keep the shipment receipt for at least three months, otherwise we will not take responsibility if the return parcel is lost during the delivery.
Please check your order immediately after receiving it to detect possible errors. If your order is missing items or the parcel is otherwise damaged, please notify the Shop immediately by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the event of a complaint, the Shop has primarily the right to correct the error. If the error cannot be corrected, the Shop has the right to cancel the order.
Sometimes we use product arrangements in some of our product images. Please read the product description carefully so that everything is clear regarding your ordered product. The Shop may reject the complaint if it turns out that you have purchased the product without familiarizing yourself with the entire product description.
