You will not be able to cancel your order if your item is bespoke or has been altered by you in any way. If you cancel because you’ve changed your mind, you will receive a refund of the price paid for the Products plus any applicable standard delivery charges (but not any enhanced or premium delivery charges). Please make sure you return the Product unused, in the same condition you received it, as well as all the packaging and included accessories, but nothing else!

Your refund can be reduced if you’ve changed your mind and can’t manage to meet the return requirements above, or if you have used the item more than you would be able to in a shop when deciding whether to buy it and it is no longer in a resaleable condition.

What to do if your Product is faulty or lacks conformity?

Legal warranties You will always have legal warranties in relation to Products. Your legal warranties are not affected by these Terms.

Warranties

We are liable for defects in the conformity of the Product that existed at the time of the sale in accordance with Articles L. 217-4 (and seq.) of the Consumer Code and hidden defects in the Product sold, under the conditions provided for in Articles 1641 (and seq.) of the Civil Code.

Legal guarantee of conformity You have a period of two (2) years from the delivery of the Product to act on the basis of this legal guarantee.

In the event of a lack of conformity, you can choose between repairing or replacing the Product, in accordance with article L. 217-9 of the Consumer code. We can however choose not to proceed according to your choice if this choice results in a manifestly disproportionate cost compared to the other modality, taking into account the value of the Product or the importance of the defect.

If the repair or replacement of the Product is impossible you can choose between the refund of part of the price or the termination of the Terms, in accordance with article L. 217- 10 of the Consumer Code.

During the 24 months following the delivery of the Products covered by your order, you are exempt from providing proof of the existence of the lack of conformity.

Guarantee against defect in the Product sold

You can also exercise the guarantee against hidden defects of the Product sold that existed before the sale as provided for by article 1641 of the Civil Code.

In this case, you can choose between the cancellation of the sale or a reduction of the sale price in accordance with article 1644 of the Civil Code.
