    With all care, we as well as our clients may make mistakes. If you are not pleased with a certain delivery or item, please mind the following:

    • Please do not send things back, except if we explicitly ask you to - usually we will be able to find out all about it from our own records.
    • If the mistake is due to an error of ours, you will get a free substitute.
    • If the mistake is due to an error of yours, we offer you corrected items for a quarter of the normal price. Errors due to telephone orders go at the customer's expense, if our records correspond with the delivered items. In case you do not want to take this risk, please order online, or by mail or fax.

    Cancellation of an order

    It is impossible to cancel an order which has been placed, even if it is erroneous. Should you find out later on that you have ordered something you do not want, we do not take the product back, because the horoscopes are generated uniquely for your order. Please make sure that you inform yourself about the product before you order it.

    Orders which are delivered late cannot be cancelled either.

    Orders of online services (e.g. PDF or subscription to the Extended Daily Horoscope) cannot be cancelled after you have had access to contents which are only available under that service.
