Questions about purchasing from Luxis

Questions about your privacy and company safeguards

How long can I try products at home?

Good news! We want you to be certain that the items you’ve selected are the right ones for you. So, you have 30 days to return most products, 45 days for hearing aids and one year for Featherspring custom orthotics. If you decide during this time that the items you ordered are not right for you then simply return them in original condition for a full refund of the purchase price. (We’re sorry but shipping charges are not refundable.)

How are items shipped?

All orders are processed within 24 hours of receiving and in-stock items are normally shipped within 1-2 business days. Charges to your credit card are applied during processing. For your security, checks and money orders are always deposited the day they are received and are not held within our facility even if an item is on backorder.

All products are shipped with the United States Post Office. You can choose the shipping method you prefer:

Basic Service: Cost – $4.95 – $9.95: The time it takes for your order to reach you can vary. Typically delivery time is 4-10 business days.

Priority Mail: Cost – $13.95 – $15.95: The time it takes for your order to reach you can vary. Typically delivery time is one to three business days.

Can you ship outside the United States?

Yes, but there are increased fees and different procedures associated with shipping outside the United States. All international orders will be shipped First Class Mail. Depending upon where you live, you may be asked to pay Customs fees before receiving your order. Different countries assess different fees from Customs. You are responsible for any Customs fees.

Are the testimonials you post from actual customers?

Absolutely! We love hearing from our customers. Their testimonials brighten our day and we enjoy sharing them with others. We never change testimonials (other than correcting the occasional spelling or grammar error). So, what you read is what we received from our customers. Of course, no testimonial is a guarantee that every customer will have the same experience. We try to only post testimonials that reflect what the majority of people may experience. Some customers prefer to mail their testimonial to us. When that happens, we add their testimonial to our website on their behalf (of course, with their permission).

All customer letters and comments are kept on file and are reprinted with our customers’ permission. Customers do not receive compensation for testimonials.

What are my billing options?

ORDERING BATTERIES AND ACCESSORIES: Payment in full is due when ordering.

You can pay securely on line with your VISA, MasterCard or Discover card. You can also mail checks or money orders. All payments must be in US dollars. Please do not send cash in the mail.

If monthly payments are accepted, payments are interest-free when made on schedule. Delinquent accounts are charged 1.4% per month (APR 18.2%). If outside the U.S., include full payment in US dollars plus non-refundable processing fee.

How do I return an item?

You can return a product in original condition within your 30-day home trial period for a full refund of your purchase price. Shipping and handling is not refundable.

To return products

  1. Pack your products in a sturdy box along with a note that clearly states: your name, complete address, what you are returning and why you are returning the item. If you are exchanging an item, please tell us what you would like us to send in exchange.
  2. Send returns to:

    Luxis
    Return Department
    1292 S 7th St

How do we safeguard your information?

Protecting the safety of your personal information is important to us. We use a variety of technical, administrative and physical safeguards so that you can enjoy your shopping experience without having to worry about the loss of, misuse of, or unauthorized access to your information.

Luxis International, Inc. – Security Policy

Your Financial Information is Secure with Luxis.

Your financial Information is always secure because our website incorporates Secure Socket Layers (SSL). SSL is the industry standard in transferring information to process your orders. SSL encrypts or masks the information you send to our website. This makes it extremely difficult for someone to “eves-drop” on your transmission.

You will know your information is secure when you see an image of a small lock in the lower right of your browser window or near the address bar. Some web browsers show a green background in their address bar as well.

Your Credit Card Number is Secure

When you use a credit card to purchase an item on our website, through the mail, over the phone or in one of our offices SSL encrypts the information keeping it secure.

In addition to SSL, when you enter your credit card number in our payment screen during the checkout process, we immediately and securely exchange your full credit card number for a “token” with our credit card processor. Tokens are also used when our company applies a charge to your credit card when processing an order that is received over the telephone, through the mail or in our offices.

A “token” is used in place of your actual credit card number. The token is only good for transactions from Luxis. So, no other company or individual can use the token to apply a charge to your credit card. This keeps your credit card number extra secure!

Firewalls

We protect all personal information stored in our computer systems behind a network security system called a “firewall.” We only permit our authorized staff and authorized third party service providers to access our computer systems, and then only for the purposes described in this privacy policy.

What is adware? What is spyware?

Adware is software that is installed on your computer that can, for example, create pop-up advertisements or cause your browser to be redirected to other websites. We do not participate in or use third-party services that use adware. Spyware is also software that is installed on your computer that can, for example, record and transmit information regarding the websites you visit, or record or transmit your keystrokes to a third party.
