7 - Refunds calculation
DAMAGED, DEFECTIVE OR INCORRECT ITEMS
If you return an order as a result of a defective or damaged during shipping product, in accordance with our return conditions, or as a result of a mistake made by our company, we will take in charge the costs for the return delivery. The refund of these costs will be carried out either via a personalized return label, either by reimbursing you the amount you paid for the return delivery. In this last instance, you will have to provide a copy of the carrier’s bill, as well as the return delivery slip.
In any case, the refund for the return delivery will be limited to the total that was initially charged for the delivery of the relevant products. In the eventuality that the return concerns only a part of the order, the refund limitation will be calculated in the proportion of the initial order total weight.
Our team will make sure that the products are indeed incorrect, defective or damaged. In the case that our assessment will reveal that no mistakes were made by our company, we reserve the right to charge you for the total amount of the returned products and also for the total amount of the costs incurred during the return process.
