Order Processing: You can purchase our Products by placing orders via our Sites. SSTORM reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to refuse to process or to cancel your order in certain circumstances. This may happen, for example, when the Product you ordered is out of stock, there are inaccuracies or errors in Products or pricing information, or our credit and fraud avoidance department identifies problems or in other circumstances that we, in our sole discretion, deem appropriate. SSTORM also reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to take steps to verify your identity to process your order. We will not charge you for orders that we do not process or cancel. If we have already charged you for your order, then we will refund you the amount charged.

Product Availability and Delivery: Our Sites may contain information regarding the availability of the Products. Unfortunately, SSTORM cannot guarantee that an item listed as “in stock” will actually ship right away, as inventory can change significantly from day-to- day. In some cases, a Product which may be in stock when a customer places the order, may be sold out by the time SSTORM attempts to process the order, or there may be an error in the information about the availability of the Product. Should this happen, SSTORM will notify you by email. If we determine that a Product you ordered is no longer available, we will cancel that item from your order and provide you a full refund towards the cancelled Product, if you have already paid for it. We will notify you about the cancelation by email.
Return Policy: SSTORM accepts returns on certain Products on a case-by- case basis. If, however, a Product is listed as final sale, we will not accept returns for such Product, unless it is defective. If a Product offered by SSTORM is defective , please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org within 48 hours of receiving the Product.
