In any case, the amount refunded will never exceed the amount actually paid by the Customer.

8.7.       If the Consumer exercises his right of withdrawal, he is responsible for the costs of returning the Goods. Even if the Goods cannot be returned by regular mail, the Consumer is responsible for the costs of returning the Goods. The Consumer will take all required steps to ensure that the Goods reach Us in the delivered condition.

8.8.       Please note that you may lose your legal right to cancel under this Clause in the following circumstances:

  • If the Goods are sealed for health or hygiene reasons and you have unsealed those Goods after receiving them;
  • If the Goods have been personalised or custom-made for you.

8.9.       The returned Goods must be returned in new condition, in its original packaging, in perfect condition and accompanied by the invoice and a fully completed return document. Any return of which the sender cannot be identified will be refused.

8.10.    Refunds will be reduced for any diminished value in the Goods resulting from your excessive handling of them (e.g. no more than would be permitted in a shop). If the Goods are handled in a manifestly inadmissible manner and this results in a large depreciation, We are entitled to refuse the full refund. Please note that We won’t issue a refund before We have received the Goods and have had a chance to properly inspect them. We may subsequently charge you an appropriate sum if We find that the Goods have been handled excessively.
