CLAIMS FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE TO DELIVERIES
Hops-Collective will not process any claim for loss of or damage for any delivery unless notice thereof setting out the particulars of the origin, destination, parcel identification number (PIN), date of delivery and the estimated amount claimed in respect of such loss or damage is given to Hops-Collective in writing (by email to email@example.com) within the time limits set out below, failing which Hops-Collective will have no liability in respect of the delivery.
Hops-Collective may also require supporting documentation in order to assess a claim. Such documentation may include pictures of the damages, estimates for repair, or other records. Failure to submit the necessary supporting documentation (in Hops-Collective sole discretion) may result in the claim being denied.
The right to damages of any kind against Hops-Collective will be extinguished unless Hops-Collective is contacted within 5 calendar days of the damage package being received or 10 days from the date on which the delivery should have been delivered, or from the date on which delivery stopped.
Excluding refund requests made in respect of Hops-Collective service guarantees, all claims must be submitted in writing by email to firstname.lastname@example.org with supporting documentation.
Hops-Collective retains the right to inspect any delivery that is the subject of a damage claim. If, at the time the damage claim is submitted, Hops-Collective requests that the customer retain the delivery and packaging for inspection, the Customer shall retain the delivery and packaging for inspection by Hops-Collective for a period of 10 days. Failure to retain the delivery and packaging for inspection may result in the claim being denied.
