If you don’t agree, please refrain from using the Lost Jakarta Shop. We may change the Terms and Conditions from time to time (and may or may not let you know that we have), so you should come back to this page regularly to check the Terms and Conditions. If you continue to use the Lost Jakarta Shop after we’ve changed the Terms and Conditions, then you agree to the new Terms and Conditions.

You must be eighteen years old or older to use the Lost Jakarta Shop. While we use all reasonable endeavours to make sure that the Lost Jakarta Shop is available 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year, we cannot guarantee that your access will be uninterrupted or error free. Access may be unavailable temporarily without notice in the event of a system failure, maintenance or any reason beyond our control.

Any links to third party sites appearing on the Lost Jakarta Shop are provided for your convenience only. The links and third party sites are not verified or recommended by us. Your access of such third party sites is at your own risk and may be subject to third party terms of use.

We have the right to end our agreement with you for your use of the Lost Jakarta Shop if you breach these Terms and Conditions or if we suspect you have breached these terms or are engaged, or are about to be engaged or have been involved in fraudulent or illegal activity in connection with the Lost Jakarta Shop or on the site.

Ordering Process

When placing an order, you agree that any and all information you give us is accurate and complete. All orders are subject to acceptance and product availability. All prices listed on the Lost Jakarta Shop are correct at the time of entering the information, however, we reserve the right to change prices of any product at any time. The total price of your order, including any sales taxes and shipping costs, will be displayed prior to your purchase confirmation.

When you order a hardcover book, your order will be forwarded to the printing facility of IngramSpark (see Delivery Methods under 3.)

No contract for the sale of any product will exist between you and us until we accept your order by emailing the confirmation invoice to the email address given in your order and will detail products ordered, payment method, cost and the shipping method.

3.     Payment, charges, transaction fees and taxes

What forms of payment does Lost Jakarta Publishers accept?

You may purchase products from the Lost Jakarta Shop with credit cards. You can also use PayPal. All purchases will be charged to your nominated card or account upon submission of your order. All credit and debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. We use a payment processor called “Stripe” to process your online transaction on our behalf. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery. We are sorry that we cannot accept personal cheques, cashier’s cheques, money orders or direct deposits. Payments to Lost Jakarta Publishers will appear on your statement as “Continuous Innovation Pty Ltd”.

International transaction charges 

Please be aware that purchases made from the Lost Jakarta Shop with some credit cards carry an international service charge for cross border transactions (i.e. where you are in a different country to the Lost Jakarta Publishers company that you’re buying from) depending on the card issuer and type of credit card. This is generally between 1-3% of the purchase total, but it may be higher. It is your responsibility to be aware of the international service charges that your credit card issuer may charge. We do not take receipt of these fees so we are unable to refund them in any way.

International customs/sales taxes

Please be aware that delivery of products to some regions may incur a customs/sales tax that is payable on delivery of the physical items that you have ordered. Please check your local tax laws before placing your order for any book to check whether you might have to pay such a tax. Being aware of your local tax laws is your responsibility, and we are unable to refund any amount charged at the point of delivery as Lost Jakarta Publishers does not receive any amount of these additional taxes.

Credit card verification codes

We might require you to provide your Credit Card Verification Code (or CVC) in order to process your payment. The CVC is a number that appears on your credit card that allows us to verify that the person placing the order has direct access to the credit card being used.

We take great care with the personal information you provide. See also 9. Privacy.

4.     Delivery and delivery charges

The terms set out in this clause 4 apply only in relation to the purchase of physical products through the Lost Jakarta Shop. For digital products (EBooks), please see section 5 below.

Delivery methods and charges

Most purchased products will be sent by standard post. We can deliver to most countries. Please ensure that you provide accurate credit card details, CVC code, billing address and other information that we request from you in order to process your payment and check them carefully before you click “pay” as we can’t amend mistakes afterwards. We may not be able to process your payment or deliver your products if the information you provide is incorrect.

Shipping Charges

Except as set out below, shipping charges will apply for delivery of physical products purchased from the Lost Jakarta Shop. These shipping charges will be notified to you at the time of your purchase. Shipping charges are based on weight and distance and may vary slightly from country and continent. By making a purchase, you agree that you accept the shipping charges that have been notified to you.

Delivery times

As soon as you have purchased a product from the Lost Jakarta Shop we will notify IngramSpark (Lightning Source LLC) in order for them to print and ship your product. Printing will usually take 7-10 days, shipping and delivery times vary by location. Please note that these times are intended as a guide only, and we are unable to guarantee delivery of your guide by or within a certain time.

If you provide an incorrect delivery address and the order is returned to us, or you fail to take delivery, we will either:

  • redeliver the product to the correct address, if provided, subject to payment of additional delivery costs, or
  • refund the value of the product (excluding delivery costs) dependent on whether it remains in a resalable condition. You will be responsible for any additional charges incurred including re-delivery costs.

If the order is not returned to us, you will not be eligible for a refund or re-delivery. Lost Jakarta Publishers accepts no responsibility for deliveries made to incorrect or incomplete addresses provided by customers. In this case, you will need to place a new order with the correct details.

You can only use your digital product for personal, non-commercial purposes. You may not share any digital product purchased by you by forwarding or sending it to someone else.

Lost Jakarta Publishers is not responsible for any issues and errors you and your device faces with downloading or reading the EBook files.

Defective or Damaged Products
