Generally this means that for Goods with a European Union (EU) destination, the Finnish 24% VAT shall be added to the total price of the Goods by KAYIWA: Goods with a non-EU destination are Delivered Duty Unpaid (DDU) and the payment of the tariffs and import fees levied on the Goods is the sole responsibility of the Customer once the Goods reach his/her country.

5.5 KAYIWA insures your Goods until the time and place that you sign for them. Ownership and the risk of damage to the Goods shall pass to you upon signing for the package. If you have specified a recipient who is not you for delivery purposes (for example as a gift) then you accept that evidence of a signature by them (or at that delivery address) is evidence of delivery and fulfillment by KAYIWA and transfer of responsibility in the same way.

5.9 We shall repair or replace free of charge any Goods damaged in transit provided that if the packaging is damaged you open the package in the presence of the courier with a camera in order to verify the condition of the Goods. If, in the event of damage to the Goods, photographs are taken as evidence, you must immediately file an official claim with the courier company and notify us in Writing within 48 hours. We recommend that you do not sign for Goods that are extensively damaged.
5.10 If the Goods are returned to KAYIWA because the address was incomplete or incorrect or because you refused to accept them (unless as stipulated in clause 5.9 above), you will be charged for the re-import and return shipping costs.
6. Limitation of Liability
6.1 In no event shall we be liable to you for:
