Return Policy:

The following return goods policy applies to any Product sold by Scientia Vascular LLC. Product may be returned to Seller in only the following four circumstances:

(a) in the event that Product was shipped in error;

(b) in the event that Product was delivered after the Product's expiration date;

(c) in the event that Product was improperly labeled or packaged by Seller; or

(d) in the event that Product is one which Seller specifically authorizes for return.

Should one or more of those circumstances apply, Seller agrees to accept the return of the affected Product for full credit or replacement, return or replacement being at Seller’s sole option, provided that the Product is returned to Seller within 30 days from the date the Product was received and that the Product is returned to Seller in its original packaging, unopened, sterile and undamaged. Products will not be accepted for replacement or credit if they have been in possession of the Buyer for more than 30 days. If the Buyer desires to return a Product, Buyer shall contact Seller for instructions on how to return the Product and for information on credit or replacement of any purchased and non-expired Product. Buyer acknowledges that Products have varying shelf lives and that certain restrictions and/or restocking charges may apply based on the remaining shelf life of the returned Product. Sterile packaged products that have been opened or where the package has been damaged, or any custom or special-order products, cannot be returned in any circumstance. Non-damaged and conforming Products with a packaging seal broken after delivery may not be returned for credit or replacement, except with specific authorization from Seller. Returns based on a defect or malfunction of a Product will be handled in accordance with the applicable Product warranty.
