Summary: This section outlines our base terms of sale, but we may make changes to these terms as necessary during the sales process.
a) Placing Orders
Made-to-Order / Manufactured-to-Order ("MTO"): Items may be purchased directly from our website store by utilizing the online checkout system. Orders shall be considered placed only after payment is secured, and no work will begin prior to receipt of payment in full. MTO orders have an expected time to manufacture of 3-4 weeks unless otherwise stated, and in some circumstances may take longer.
Engineered-to-Order ("Custom"): Orders will be invoiced after the requested work has been reviewed and approved, and all invoices are due upon receipt. Custom orders shall be considered placed only after payment is secured, and no work will begin prior to receipt of payment in full. The time required to design and manufacture Custom orders will be specified on the invoice or Other Agreements to the work.
Summary: Orders are placed only once full payment is received. After your order is placed it will take some time to make your items, so please be patient. If you are ordering something custom we must also approve the request, and we'll give you an estimate time to complete the work.
b) Order Cancellation
MTO: Orders may be cancelled within three (3) days from the date placed for a full refund provided the product has not yet shipped. Cancellation requests not received within three (3) days will be assessed a fee of 25% of the order total. Cancellation requests received after a product has shipped will be denied, and a return request must be made. We reserve the right to cancel MTO orders if we are unable to complete the order for any reason. In the event that Malefic Cameras initiates cancellation, we will notify you and you shall be entitled to a full refund.
Custom: Orders may be cancelled within seven (7) days from the date placed for a partial refund only. Order setup costs, custom material fees, and design work completed at the time of cancellation are not refundable.
Summary: We understand that sometimes you need to cancel an order. Because we manufacture everything to order you have a limited time in which to cancel. After this grace period expires, there will be a fee charged for cancelling work in progress, based on the type of order. We are committed to minimizing plastic waste.
c) Returns and Refunds
MTO: You may request to return an order within fourteen (14) calendar days immediately following the delivery of your order to the shipping address of record. All returned orders must without exception be a) complete of all items originally packaged, including any accessories, gifts, and other items included at no cost regardless if invoiced or not, b) include all materials, documentation, certificates, notices, and invoices, c) be in original packaging, unopened, unaltered, and new, and d) must be shipped within three (3) days of return approval. REFUNDS FOR ACCEPTED RETURNS WILL BE PROCESSED WITHIN TWO (2) WEEKS, AND RETURNED TO THE ORIGNAL METHOD OF PAYMENT. Shipping charges are not refundable. Rejected returns must be collected within thirty (30) days, or are forfeited. Buyer is responsible for all return related shipping charges. Items lost in shipping will not be refunded. Accepted returns may be assessed a fee up to 25% of the order total.
CUSTOM ORDER RETURNS ARE NOT ACCEPTED.
Summary: You must contact us promptly if you wish to return your order, and if approved to do so must ship immediately. Everything must be shipped back to us new and unopened, at your expense.

Custom orders may not be returned.
