REVIEWS, COMMENTS, COMMUNICATIONS, AND OTHER CONTENT
Visitors may post reviews, comments, photos, and other content; send e-cards and other communications; and submit suggestions, ideas, comments, questions, or other information, so long as the content is not illegal, obscene, threatening, defamatory, invasive of privacy, infringing of intellectual property rights, or otherwise injurious to third parties or objectionable and does not consist of or contain software viruses, political campaigning, commercial solicitation, chain letters, mass mailings, or any form of “spam.” You may not use a false e-mail address, impersonate any person or entity, or otherwise mislead as to the origin of a card or other content.

RKS respects the intellectual property of others. If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please follow our Notice and Procedure for Making Claims of Copyright Infringement.
RKS attempts to be as accurate as possible. However, RKS does not warrant that product descriptions or other content of this site is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a product offered by RKS itself is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition.
Except where noted otherwise, the List Price displayed for products on our website represents the full retail price listed on the product itself, suggested by the manufacturer or supplier, or estimated in accordance with standard industry practice; or the estimated retail value for a comparably featured item offered elsewhere. The List Price is a comparative price estimate and may or may not represent the prevailing price in every area on any particular day. For certain items that are offered as a set, the List Price may represent “open-stock” prices, which means the aggregate of the manufacturer’s estimated or suggested retail price for each of the items included in the set. Where an item is offered for sale by one of our merchants, the List Price may be provided by the merchant.
With respect to items sold by RKS, we cannot confirm the price of an item until you order; however, we do NOT charge your credit card until after your order has entered the shipping process. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items in our catalog may be mis-priced. If an item’s correct price is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.
Please note that this policy applies only to products sold and shipped by RKS. Your purchases from third-party sellers using RKS Payments are charged at the time you place your order, and third-party sellers may follow different policies in the event of a mis-priced item.
Returns are easy. If for any reason you are not satisfied, you can return the product for a full refund less a processing fee or exchange.
Returns and Refunds must use the Return Form and receive an RMA.
Refund requests will incur a processing of fee of $5.95. This fee will be deducted from your refund amount.
Click here to fill out our Returns and Exchanges form and we will process your request promptly.
Return shipping is the responsibility of the purchaser.
LOST OR BROKEN GUARANTEE
Our Lost or Broken Guarantee allows customers to register their purchase for one replacement pair. Customers must register their product within 30 days of purchase. The Guarantee is good for one year from date of registration.
