IF YOU NEED HELP...
In the unlikely event that there is a fault with one of our products please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org, and give us as much information as you can about the error. We will then send you a printable address and label for a free return shipping service. On receiving the Hockey Stick if the warranty has not been voided we will investigate the defect further. If fixable we will repair the defect and return the unit. If however we are unable to resolve the error we will send you a new unit, or at our discretion offer a refund.
We all have our Kickstarter backers to thank for getting the Crown Hockey Stick concept off the ground. The cost of designing, developing and manufacturing a new product is a very real barrier, and it is one that our backers helped us to leapfrog. Due to significant start-up costs we are unable to offer a warranty on Crown Hockey Sticks received as a reward through backing us on Kickstarter, nor can we accept any liability for personal injury claims with regards to misuse of the Crown Hockey Stick. However we endeavour to support our customers in finding solutions to their problems and we will do our best to help you in any way that we can. Please email email@example.com with a detailed message.
