Survival of the Fittest is not responsible for shipping delays due to inclement weather.

Survival of the Fittest is not responsible for any lost package that is incorrectly addressed due to customer error. We generate our shipping labels from the information the customer provides, so if you enter an incorrect or incomplete address (incorrect zip code, missing apartment / suite / office number / name etc.) and your package is lost, Survival of the Fittest is not responsible. If you enter your address incorrectly on the website, and need it re-routed by USPS to the correct address, you will be charged a minimum USPS fee of $12.35 to cover rerouting costs. USPS fuel surcharge fees may also apply and therefore the total amount charged will vary depending on the actual distance that the package is rerouted. Survival of the Fittest also has the right to charge return shipping fees on orders that are refused by the customer. Your order may also be delayed.

If you contact us after your order has been placed regarding an incorrect or incomplete shipping address, we will make every effort to correct your information prior to your package being shipped. However, once your package has been processed and shipped, we cannot make any modifications to your shipment. If your order is lost or delivered to the incorrect address, we again are not responsible.
