7. In the event that your return does not comply with the terms and conditions set out in paragraph 5 of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale, you will not be entitled to any refund of sums already paid to ZOOBEETLE. Nevertheless, you shall be entitled to receive the products in the condition in which they were returned to ZOOBEETLE at your own expense.  If you do not wish to receive the products in the condition in which they were returned to us, ZOOBEETLE may legally keep the returned items as well as the sums already paid for their acquisition.

Refund Times and Procedures
