This Store may require the credit card security code for any online purchase to protect against the unauthorized use of your card.

Lutron exercises its best efforts to enter the correct product price on this Lutron Website. Unfortunately, from time-to-time, a product may be incorrrectly priced. If the actual price of an item you order is higher than stated, Lutron will, at its sole option, either contact you for instructions or will cancel the order and notify you of the cancellation. Lutron reserves the right to change prices for products sold on this Store at any time.
At the time you place your order, your total order price will include the then-current price of the products plus any applicable sales tax and shipping charges. These charges will be reflected on the Order Confirmation that Lutron emails to you. In accordance with applicable law, if the sales tax rate for the state to which your order is shipped changes, the rate in effect at the time your order is shipped will be charged to your credit card.
This website charges sales tax on all orders. If you are certified as tax exempt in the state you are shipping to, please contact us at 1-855-573-7362 before placing your order. Documentation of your tax exempt status is required for verification by our Tax Department.

Lutron may restrict the number of items that you can purchase. Lutron will post limitations on quantity on the Lutron Store web site or will inform you of product purchase limits at the time it processes your order. Lutron reserves the right to change quantities available for purchase at any time. Lutron makes every effort to supply you with the products you order. Lutron may occasionally confirm an order but subsequently learn that it cannot supply the ordered products, either at all or in the quantities ordered. This situation may occur when Lutron decides to stop manufacturing a product or cannot source components for the configuration you ordered, or when there was a pricing error at the Lutron Store when you ordered. In those circumstances, Lutron will contact you to inform you and, if you are interested, may suggest alternative products that might meet your needs. If you do not wish to order alternative products, Lutron will cancel your order for products that it cannot supply, and for any other products that you no longer wish to order as a result, and will refund your purchase price for those products.

Return And Refund Policy
If you are not satisfied with your purchased Lutron product, please call a Serena Shades Specialist at 1-855-573-7362 for a Return Material Authorization (RMA) within 30 calendar days of the product shipment date. Lutron does not permit the return for refund or exchange of configure-to-order, personalized or other customized products under any circumstances unless the product is Dead on Arrival (see Dead on Arrival below for more information). If the item is returnable and you send it back to Lutron unopened in the original box, Lutron will exchange it or offer you a refund based on your original method of payment. You must include a copy of the original invoice and return the product to the Lutron warehouse within 15 calendar days of the issuance of the RMA, packed in the original, unmarked packaging, including any accessories, manuals, documentation and registration that shipped with the product. Lutron may assess a 15% restocking fee on any opened accessories.
Note: Lutron suggests that you use a carrier that offers shipment tracking for all returns and either insure your package for safe return to Lutron or declare the full value of the shipment so you are completely protected if the shipment is lost or damaged in transit. You will be responsible for any loss or damage to the product during shipping.
Dead On Arrival (DOA) Product: System Failure Out Of The Box
A Lutron product is considered DOA if it shows symptoms of a failure, preventing basic operability, when you first use it after opening the box. If you believe that your product is DOA, please call Lutron Technical Support within 30 calendar days of the order date. Lutron Technical Support will determine whether the product is DOA and will take the appropriate actions as necessary. If Lutron Technical Support determines that a returned product is not DOA, Lutron will apply its standard product warranty to the product. Should Lutron determine that you misrepresented a returned product´s condition and the product is not DOA, Lutron may impose a handling fee totaling up to 15% of the product purchase price. As new products are offered, Lutron reserves the right to determine whether or not this policy applies.
If you discover what you believe is a product defect for any Lutron product, please contact a Serena Shades Specialist at 1-855-573-7362. If your product does have a defect, your product may be covered under the terms of its warranty. Please refer to the warranty information and other supporting documentation that came with your product. (See the Product Warranty section for specific information about Lutron´s warranties.)
