INTERNATIONAL TRANSACTION FEE
JOYA LIFE is a Panamanian Company located in Panama and Guatemala. If you are purchasing from outside Panama, your credit card company or bank may charge you a fee that might appear as charged by JOYA LIFE. This fee is not charged by JOYA LIFE, since this fee is charged by your bank, because you are purchasing something from outside your home country. We will not refund this charge, since it was not charged by JOYA LIFE. Contact your Credit Card Company or bank regarding this charge.
We take active measures to ensure full security of your credit card details and personal information. In addition to processing every credit card sales through a fully secure and reputable third party service, the payment is protected by the industry standard, to protect your private data.

Moreover, JOYA LIFE does not accept product returns or refunds related to the non-liberation of a product due to tax expenses that were not paid by the user, client or purchaser, generated by shipment.

INTERNATIONAL FEES AND DUTIES
All international customers are responsible for paying the custom fee, taxes, duties etc. upon receiving the order. These fees are paid to the government and are not collected by JOYA LIFE, therefore they cannot be reimbursed.
The parcels are sent with unpaid duties and taxes, which means that these duties or taxes are not included on the price of the products you purchase from our Web site. Any applicable fee must be paid by the purchaser in order to receive the parcel. Because we are not able to indicate the amount of fees to pay, we recommend you contact your country’s customs office or tax deduction agent for information about the respective duties and taxes for a parcel that comes from outside your country.
Note that for some services, DHL pays for the duties and taxes that must be paid once the parcel enters the country. This simple process guarantees the collection of mail and its rapid delivery to the designated address. Products shall be released only after all duties and taxes are paid on your behalf. In certain occasions, you may receive a DHL invoice after the delivery of your parcel, for the taxes which have been paid on your behalf and according with its destination, plus a small administration fee.
It is the responsibility of the purchaser to ensure that he provides the correct shipping address. We make every effort to speed up the processing and shipping, and there is no chance to cancel / change your order or the shipping address. Additional delivery charges: If the parcel returns to us due to an incorrect address and you wish to receive a refund, you will not be refunded.
Parcels will only be delivered to the user’s permanent home. It is understood that parcels will not be delivered to hotels, business addresses or PO boxes.
DELIVIERED BUT NOT DELIVERED
JOYA LIFE assumes no liability if a third person, unrelated to the user, receives the product or service on the user’s behalf, or time of delivery.
All our parcels include a tracking number and a confirmation of delivery. If your tracking information confirms that the article has been delivered to your shipping address, yet you have not received your order, please contact the couriers in order to investigate this issue. We cannot be held responsible for parcels which tracking information states that it has been delivered to your shipping address.
JOYA LIFE informs that the days for receiving the product or service may vary according with the company of your choice. Moreover, the insurance policies of the product vary according with the shipping method and company of your choice, and in some cases it should be noted that certain shipping methods and companies do not provide insurance for the product or service, and in such cases, JOYA LIFE is not responsible for refunding the price paid for the loss of the item on shipment, since it is not associated with the shipping companies.
In addition, JOYA LIFE accepts no liability for insurance collection management in the specific and exceptional cases when your shipment is insured by the shipping company. These proceedings must be made by the purchaser, user or client.
JOYA LIFE cannot be held responsible if the external appearance of the parcel is not perfect, since this is attributed to the Courier service selected by the client.
