These products or services may have limited quantities and are subject to return or exchange only according to our Return Policy.
ALD has made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colors and images of our products that appear at the store. As leather is a natural product, the actual color of the leather will vary from the image displayed in the listing on the site, and all pieces will vary one from another and contain natural blemishes, discoloration, or scarring. ALD cannot guarantee that your computer monitor's display of any color or style will be accurate.
The square feet of leather sides may vary. General size ranges are included in the item descriptions but, based on availability, other sizes may be selected.

Any offer for any product or service made on this site is void where prohibited.
ALD’s use of the terms, “strong” or “strength” in describing products on the website does not imply a level of strength that would comply with safety regulations, as leather is a natural material and may have imperfections. ALD does not warrant that the quality of any products, services, information, or other material purchased or obtained by you will meet your expectations, or that any errors in the Service will be corrected.

In the event that we make a change to or cancel an order, we may attempt to notify you by contacting the e-mail and/or billing address/phone number provided at the time the order was made.
