All returns MUST have Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA). Items without an RMA will be refused and returned at your expense. Please contact SEG by phone 1-918-497-5546, fax 1-918-497-5565 or email to obtain an RMA or to report shortages/misshipments. SEG will accept only authorized returns. SEG will deduct a 15% restocking fee (minimum of US$5.00) from the refund amount. Returns must include: SEG invoice number, SEG order number, name, address, phone number, email address, and reason for return.

Merchandise MUST be in original condition (shrink-wrapped) with original packaging and must have the RMA enclosed and clearly referenced in the shipping material. Shipment will be refused and returned to purchaser at the cost of the purchaser if these terms are not followed.

SEG does NOT issue debit or credit memos. SEG will prepare a refund check which will be mailed to you upon inspection of returned publication items. Do not apply credits against orders (deductions taken against invoices will be returned). Videotapes, CD-ROMs, DVDs, Geophysics and The Leading Edge magazines cannot be returned for any reason. SEG will NOT accept returns after 90 days from the ship date.

When orders are returned to SEG as undeliverable (due to incorrect or missing address information) or as refused, SEG will contact customer by email or by telephone. If no response has been received within three (3) months, items will be returned to stock with a 15% restock fee and remaining monies refunded.
