Terms and Conditions
1. Age limit
Persons under 18 years of age are not allowed to buy nicotine pouches. If we discover that a minor has attempted to place an order, we will contact the guardian by letter or telephone.

Orders placed in the name of another person (forgery) are reported to the police. Every order is checked and in case of suspicion of irregularities, xqs.com reserves the right to refuse your purchase.
All purchases are made in Swedish kronor (SEK). Prices always include tax and VAT. Once the order is confirmed, prices can only be changed by circumstances beyond xqs.com’s control, such as changes in tax or VAT conditions. Shipping charges will be added according to the current tariff, and you will always see the total price at checkout. No other taxes or charges will be added.
When you place an order, you will receive a preliminary order confirmation by e-mail. A purchase agreement is only concluded after xqs.com has checked the age of the buyer and corrected any inaccuracies in, for example, the price, delivery time etc.
Delivery time is normally 1-3 working days within Sweden. Orders placed before 13.30 (weekdays) are usually shipped the same day, otherwise the order will be shipped the following weekday. It may happen that an item is currently out of stock. In these cases we will contact you by e-mail or telephone. All orders are sent by DHL to your nearest post office where you can pick up the parcel upon presentation of proof of identity. In the event of a delay in delivery of more than 5 days, please contact xqs.com. If there is a delay in delivery, we will notify you by e-mail.

In the event of war, natural disaster, industrial action, government decisions and comparable events beyond our control that could not reasonably have been foreseen, and which affect agreements entered into as well as promises made by us, which make it impossible for us to fulfil the said agreement/promise. Force majeure includes government decisions that negatively affect the market and products, such as restrictions in indication, warnings, sales bans etc., abnormal decline in the market and if the company is exposed to criminal activity that affects the business.
