Shipping Policy

Autism Nutrition Research Center processes orders 5 days a week. Please allow 24-48 hours for order processing of all non-expedited shipping methods after you have placed your order. We will ship all our orders standard by, USPS. Standard delivery time is 2-8 business days depending on delivery location. For faster processing and delivery you can have your order shipped:

  • Priority Mail Shipping (Delivers In 2-3 Business Days - Domestic USA only)
  • Express Mail Shipping (Delivers In 1 Business Day if available in your area - Domestic USA only)

*Additional fees apply for faster delivery methods. Orders must be placed by 1 PM EST for same day shipping.

All packages are shipped with a verified USPS tracking number for online tracking and delivery confirmation. Expedited orders placed after 1 PM (MST) may not process until the next business day. We strive to process all expedited orders placed before 1PM MST the same day provided adequate stock is available and the order successfully passes all necessary verification processes. Orders received over the weekend may not process for shipment until Monday. Shipping carriers may deliver your package on a Saturday and do not deliver on national holidays.

Orders to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam and the US Virgin Islands are shipped based on USPS real-time costs depending on the weight of the package, delivery method and final destination.

PLEASE NOTE: Packages less than 1 lb. may ship via USPS First Class Mail when our Standard Shipping method is chosen. In some instances your order may ship in multiple shipments (due to product and warehouse availability) if standard shipping is selected, we may use different carriers for each shipment. It is important you include an address that can receive USPS deliveries.

Orders shipped to Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico are subject to additional charges. If ordering online, your charges will appear upon checkout.

*Additional charges will be applied if the delivery address is incorrect, if the package needs to be forwarded to a different location, if the package is refused or unable to be delivered.

APO Addresses : We must ship via USPS to all APO addresses. Shipping costs are based on package weight.


International Shipping:

Refunds

Unfortunately, we cannot issue a refund of any kind for orders seized or destroyed by Customs unless the order is returned to our center in an undamaged and resalable condition. A refund will be issued for the cost of the merchandise only; shipping costs cannot be reimbursed. In addition, if AutismNRC.org is billed for the cost of the return shipment due to restrictions, you may be responsible for that cost, too.

If you receive the items in damaged and unusable condition, please contact us within 14 days in one of the following ways:

·         E-mail us at [email protected]

·         Use our “Contact Us” form on our website at www.AutismNRC.org/ /crm.asp?action=contactus

·         Leave us a message at 888-385-5532

 

Package Loss

Although it is rare for international orders to be lost, please be aware that it can happen. Delivery time frames are estimates only and do not take into account weekends, holidays, or processing and packing times (please allow 24-48 hours for packing).  An international order will not be considered “lost” until 30 days after shipment date. We are unable to process claims until this 30-day period has passed. Please note that we do not offer replacements or store credits. In the event that your order has been lost, you must report it as lost to us within 60 days of date of purchase. Please contact us by email at [email protected]

3rd-Party Shipping Companies/Freight Forwarders

Using international freight forwarders or 3rd-party shipping companies can be a convenient way to receive orders to your address outside the United States. However, please know that if you elect to use this type of service, we cannot issue you a refund of any kind or accept any return of any order handled by any 3rd-party courier. We cannot be held responsible for any damage or loss that occurs due to handling of your order by an outside courier. If you experience any kind of damage or loss when using this type of service, please contact the 3rd-party company for remedy.

Address Errors

We cannot change your delivery address after an order has been shipped. We work directly with our shippers to help resolve address issues where possible, but we cannot be held responsible for any delays, fees, or other delivery issues if your address was incorrectly entered at checkout. If such an error causes an order to be rejected, lost, or destroyed, we cannot issue a refund or replacement of any kind. If the error causes the order to be sent back to us, you may be responsible for return shipping fees, and we'll only be able to refund you for the cost of merchandise. If the return delivery cost is greater than the value of the merchandise, Autism Nutrition Research Center will inform the carrier to abandon the package and no refund will be issued.

 

International Payment Methods

All AutismNRC.org transactions are shown and made in USD (U.S. dollars). Please contact your bank with any questions regarding conversion rates.

Accepted forms of payment currently include:

·         Credit cards associated with Visa, MasterCard, and American Express.

·         Debit cards associated with Visa or MasterCard

If you experience difficulties using your credit or debit card to make an international purchase, please first contact your bank to ensure that your card has been enabled for international purchases.


Violation of Laws – Customs Regulations

Items sold at Autism Nutrition Research Center are intended for personal use. We ask that you please familiarize yourself with your country's import restrictions on our ingredients before ordering. Certain countries do restrict some of our ingredients (ie: Canada, Sweden, and especially countries that restrict fish oils). We cannot be held responsible for any delays, fees, fines, or penalties incurred by your order due to a violation of law or Customs regulations.

Customs Seizure

Unfortunately, we cannot issue a refund of any kind for orders seized, damaged, or destroyed by Customs unless the order is returned to our center in undamaged and resalable condition. In that event, a refund will be issued for the cost of the merchandise only; shipping costs will not be reimbursed. Customs fees may apply. Please note that if the cost to return a rejected package to our center exceeds the value of the order, we'll instruct the courier to destroy the package and a refund will not be issued.

Disclaimer

Autism Nutrition Research Center cannot be held responsible for any laws or regulations that result in Customs applying additional cost to your order, whether tax or duties, nor any related seized products or delivery delays. However, the vast majority of international shipments do not experience problems or delays, and our customers are very rarely assessed additional fees. In the event additional fees are assessed to your order, your local Customs authority will contact you directly. By ordering from AutismNRC.org (Autism Nutrition Research Center), you agree to the policies stated above. Autism Nutrition Research Center reserves the right to change these policies at any time, and we also retain the right to refuse service to any customer at our sole discretion.

In general, the third-party providers we use will only collect, use, and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.

However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.

In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.


As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.
