Return Policy Helix accepts returns for refunds or exchanges, subject to the following:
You can return purchased items to Helix within 30 days of the date they were shipped to you. After 30 days, we do not accept returns. See our Warranty Policy for warranty service and procedures.
Return to Manufacturer Authorization
Before returning an item, contact us at email@example.com, to explain the reason for the return, the details of your original order, and whether you want a refund or an exchange. As appropriate, we will issue you an RMA number, which you need to include in the package for the returned item, along with a copy of the original order information. We do not accept returned items for which an RMA has not been issued.
The item must be unused, undamaged, complete with all parts and accessories, in the same condition you received it, and in its original packaging.
Pack the item according to our instructions to prevent damage in transit. In case of a return for repair covered by our one-year warranty within our shipping zones, Helix will cover the cost of shipping. For other returns, insure the package for its value, as you will be responsible for damage in transit. Use a shipping service that allows you to track the package. You are responsible for paying all shipping and insurance costs for the return shipment. If you are seeking an exchange, you will also be responsible for all costs of shipping the new item to you.
Helix is not responsible for any return shipping costs and any incidental fees or tariffs outside of our warranty and shipping zones indicated on our shipping page. You should familiarize yourself with your region's customs policies and shipping providers.
Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item and whether your request for refund or exchange has been approved. We may charge a fee for missing or used accessories.
For non-defective items, Helix charges a restocking fee equal to 10% of the original purchase price of each item returned. This fee will be deducted from your refund, or if you have requested an exchange, the fee will need to be received by Helix before the new item is shipped.
If a refund is approved, a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment. This refund amount may take some time to show in your records, so before contacting Helix, please check with your credit card company, bank, or other payment service.
If an exchange is approved, we will ship the new item to you, after payment of any applicable restocking and shipping fees.

The Limited Warranty does not apply to any non-Helix hardware products, even if packaged or sold with Helix hardware. Manufacturers, suppliers, or publishers, other than Helix, may provide their own warranties to the end user purchaser, but Helix, in so far as permitted by law, provides their products "as is".

You must independently verify the suitability of the material for the application and intended purpose before using it.
In no event shall Helix be liable for any loss, death, or bodily injury that you suffer, or that you cause to any third party, in connection with your use of Helix products. To the fullest extent legally permitted Helix EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY IMPLIED OR EXPLICIT WARRANTY OF FITNESS for a particular usage, the particular nature and circumstances of said usage being unforeseen and unforeseeable to Helix.
You expressly agree that your use of, or inability to use, the service is at your sole risk. The service and all products and services delivered to you through the service are (except to the extent otherwise expressly stated by us) provided 'as is' and 'as available' for your use, without any representation, warranties or conditions of any kind, either express or implied, including all implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, merchantable quality, fitness for a particular purpose, durability, title, and non-infringement.
ALL EXPRESS AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE LIMITED IN TIME TO THE TERM OF THIS LIMITED WARRANTY. NO WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WILL APPLY AFTER THE EXPIRATION OF THE LIMITED WARRANTY PERIOD. SOME STATES OR COUNTRIES DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO THIS LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
No Helix reseller, agent, or employee is authorized to make any modification, extension, or addition to this warranty. If any term is held to be illegal or unenforceable, the legality or enforceability of the remaining terms shall not be affected or impaired.
EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN THIS WARRANTY AND TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, Helix IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES RESULTING FROM ANY BREACH OF WARRANTY OR CONDITION OR ANY OTHER REASON, OR UNDER ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF USE; LOSS OF REVENUE; LOSS OF ACTUAL OR ANTICIPATED PROFITS (INCLUDING LOSS OF PROFITS ON CONTRACTS); LOSS OF THE USE OF MONEY; LOSS OF ANTICIPATED SAVINGS; LOSS OF BUSINESS; LOSS OF OPPORTUNITY; LOSS OF GOODWILL; LOSS OF REPUTATION; LOSS OF, DAMAGE TO OR CORRUPTION OF DATA; OR ANY INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL LOSS OR DAMAGE HOWSOEVER CAUSED, INCLUDING THE REPLACEMENT OF EQUIPMENT AND PROPERTY, ANY COSTS OF RECOVERING, PROGRAMMING, OR REPRODUCING ANY PROGRAM OR DATA STORED OR USED WITH Helix PRODUCTS AND ANY FAILURE TO MAINTAIN THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF DATA STORED ON THE PRODUCT. SOME STATES OR COUNTRIES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
Obtaining Warranty Service Please access and review the online help resources referred to in the documentation accompanying this hardware product before requesting warranty service. If the product is still not functioning properly after making use of these resources, please contact Helix at firstname.lastname@example.org. You must assist in diagnosing issues with your product and follow Helix' warranty processes.
Helix may restrict warranty service outside of Europe and the United States. Helix may provide warranty service by (i) servicing your bike at one of our repair service locations or (ii) by sending you new or refurbished customer-installable replacement product or parts to enable you to service or exchange your own product ("DIY Service").
Service options, parts availability, and response times may vary. Service options are subject to change at any time. In accordance with applicable law, Helix may require that you furnish proof of purchase details and/or comply with registration requirements before receiving warranty service. Please refer to the accompanying documentation for more details on this and other matters on obtaining warranty service.
Repair Service Location
If we opt to service your bike at one of our service locations, you will be responsible for packaging and shipping your bike to the service location requested. If you no longer have the original packaging, Helix may send you packaging material. If you are located in the United States or Europe, Helix will provide pre-paid shipping way bills. Customers who purchase from the International Store may be required to cover the cost of shipping to a repair service location.
If we opt to send you a new or refurbished replacement product or part, upon receipt of the replacement product or part, the original product or part becomes the property of Helix and you agree to follow instructions, including, if required, arranging the return of original product or part to Helix in a timely manner. When providing DIY Service requiring the return of the original product or part, Helix may require a credit card authorization as security for the retail price of the replacement product or part and applicable shipping costs. If you follow instructions, Helix will cancel the credit card authorization, so you will not be charged for the product or part and shipping costs. If you fail to return the replaced product or part as instructed, Helix will charge the credit card for the authorized amount.
Indemnification You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Helix and our parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, partners, officers, directors, agents, contractors, licensors, service providers, subcontractors, suppliers, interns and employees, from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys' fees, made by any third-party due to or arising out of your breach of these Terms of Service or the documents they incorporate by reference, or your violation of any law or the rights of a third-party.
Severability In the event that any provision of these Terms of Service is determined to be unlawful, void or unenforceable, such provision shall nonetheless be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and the unenforceable portion shall be deemed to be severed from these Terms of Service, such determination shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any other remaining provisions.
Termination The obligations and liabilities of the parties incurred prior to the termination date shall survive the termination of this agreement for all purposes.
These Terms of Service are effective unless and until terminated by either you or us. You may terminate these Terms of Service at any time by notifying us that you no longer wish to use our Service, or when you cease using our site.
If in our sole judgment you fail, or we suspect that you have failed, to comply with any term or provision of these Terms of Service, we also may terminate this agreement at any time without notice and you will remain liable for all amounts due up to and including the date of termination; and/or accordingly may deny you access to our Service (or any part thereof).

If any part of these Terms of Service is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of these Terms of Service shall continue in effect.

Helix may assign or transfer this agreement to any successor.
