We are not responsible for any additional fees that may apply to your order when you complete your purchase through Klarna.
No immediate credit check is made when you use Klarna Checkout, but credit checks may be made, if necessary, depending on the payment option you have chosen. Credit checks performed by Klarna do not affect your credit rating and cannot be seen by other parties who request access to your credit information, for example, banks.

§ 12 Damaged packages
All packages leaving our facilities are insured. If your package and/or contents are damaged when you receive your delivery, you should report it to the carrier/agent at the time of delivery, then contact Zoovillage immediately. If you have already retrieved and opened the package and discover damage to your items, contact Zoovillage. Complaints for transport damage must be submitted to us within a reasonable period of time after the damage was discovered or should have been discovered. A “reasonable time” for notification to UPS is 15 days from the scheduled/estimated delivery date or within 7 days from the date of delivery.
All product packaging and external packaging must be retained for inspection and evidence as needed. If transport damage is discovered upon delivery, the package must be kept in the condition it was received and photographed. You must then contact Zoovillage for further instructions on how to proceed with your complaint.
We will advise you on whether to send back the package or discard the packaging. This ensures compensation can be collected from the carrier for the complaint.
§ 13 Colors
To the furthest extent possible, we always strive to realistically represent the properties and colors of our products in our product images. However, the color you see at Zoovillage.com depends on your computer screen, and we cannot guarantee that your computer can reproduce the colors in our images accurately or in the same way as these appear in our system.
§ 14 “Abnormal shopping behavior” clause
We always guarantee a 14-day exchange and return period when you shop at Zoovillage.
Unfortunately, we have discovered that some of our customers exhibit abnormal shopping habits and a buying culture where Zoovillage's right to return is utilized to the fullest extent possible. We have therefore introduced an “abnormal shopping behavior” clause. Under this clause, we reserve the right to stop selling to a customer due to abnormal shopping behavior. If Zoovillage has reasonable grounds to suspect abuse, fraud, harassment, compulsive/pathological shopping behavior on the part of the customer or that the customer is acting as a reseller of the items being purchased, we will reject the order with reference to the clause on abnormal shopping behavior.
In this context, suspicion is based on a number of objective, non-discriminatory criteria including: consideration of the frequency of purchases, composition of the orders and/or returns, delayed returns/unclaimed orders, reports of missing items at the time of delivery or return, multiple returns of identical items or attempts to circumvent a previous refusal with false identity or alternate identity. At the same time, we emphasize that the clause refers to behavior that is systematic and does not refer to random/single cases.
The identification of a shopping pattern that we deem to be abnormal and beyond what we consider to be “acceptable purchasing behavior and acceptable shopping culture” is done using an algorithm based on a number of different parameters. If a customer is identified by the algorithm, we will evaluate whether it is appropriate to reject a customer’s order from Zoovillage - either temporarily or permanently - on a case-by-case basis. If you have an order rejected, you are considered a suspended/blocked customer. We will always notify you by email or verbally if we invoke this clause.
If we detect unacceptable shopping behavior as described above, we reserve the right to refrain from entering into transactions with the customer(s) concerned and/or to put the customer(s) in question on hold.
As is always the case, a purchase/agreement with Zoovillage is not finalized until we have sent an order confirmation and receipt.
The “Abnormal shopping behavior” clause does not prevent customers from returning orders that have already been approved but may prevent customers from making a purchase in some cases.
§ 15 Minors
Persons under the age of 18 must have the permission of a guardian to place an order.
