Before submitting your Order, please ensure that you have read these Terms and Conditions carefully. If you are unsure about any part of these Terms and Conditions, please contact us for clarification.
We do not have to accept any orders placed through the Website otherwise. If we accept your order, we will email you to confirm acceptance (that email being the ‘Order Confirmation’) When we accept your order, a legally binding contract between us and you (the Contract) will be formed.
The Order Confirmation will contain all relevant information concerning your order. You should ensure that the details in the Order Confirmation are correct and you should print and keep a copy of it.
Price and payment
The price of the Goods will be that shown on the Website at the time of your order. Our prices may change at any time but these changes will not affect any orders that we have already accepted.
We have tried to ensure that our prices, aa shown on the Website are correct. Prices will be checked when we process your order. If the actual price of the Goods is lower than that stated in your order, you will be charged at the lower price. If the actual Price of the Goods is higher than that stated in your order, we will contact you to inform you and ask how you wish to proceed.
All prices include VAT. IF the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of your payment, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you must pay. Changes to VAT will not affect any prices where we have already received payment in full from you.
Our prices exclude the cost of delivery. For details of our delivery costs please see our Deliveries and Returns policy. Delivery costs will be added on the final sum due and will be advised to you during the check-out process, before you confirm your order.
All payment for Goods must be made in advance before we can dispatch the Goods to you. Credit and Debit cards are debited on placing your order.
We accept payment by Bancontact, Visa and MasterCard. Credit and/or Debit cards will not be charged until the order is confirmed. Please note that we do not accept American Express Cards as a method of payment.
Delivery / Title / Risk
We try to ensure the shipment of all in-stock items to destinations in Belgium within two working days. However, in-stock are dispatched the next working day after we have issued the Confirmation of Order. Please note that some styles may take up to 28 days to deliver depending on availability. You will be advised beforehand on the status.
Your order may be delayed if an item is not in stock. The current stock status displayed on the Website is approximate and some item may be out of stock. If the Goods are no longer in stock and we are unable to re-stock (if, for example, the goods are discontinued) we may cancel your order and refund any payment within 7 working days. If we cancel your order, the cancellation will be confirmed by use in writing.
Any times for delivery are estimates only and time will not be of the essence of the Contract. Goods will be sent to the address given by you in your order and stated in the Order Confirmation. Please note that Goods may be sent in instalments.
Title to Goods will pass to you once we have received payment in full for those Goods.
If your delivery address is outside of Belgium, the Goods may be subject to important duties and taxes, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. Any such additional duties, taxes or charges for customs clearance must be borne by you. You should note that customs policies vary widely from country to country. If your delivery address is outside of Belgium, we advise you contact your local office for further information.
If your delivery address is outside of Belgium, you should note that international shipments may be subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities. We are not responsible for any damage to the packaging of Goods caused by such inspections.
Cancellation, return and refund
If you are a consumer in the European Union:
You have a legal right to cancel a Contract under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 during the period set out below. This means that during the relevant period, if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep any Goods, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund. This right of cancellation is in addition to your rights in relation to faulty or wrongly-delivered goods. This is your statutory right of cancellation.
Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date on which we e-mail you the Order Confirmation, which is when the Contract between us is formed. Your deadline for cancelling the Contract is 14 calendar days after the day on which you receive the Goods.
To Cancel a Contract, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. The Easiest way to do this is to complete the cancellation form provided with the Goods. You can also contact us through social media, via email or phone.
If you are a consumer outside the European Union:
If you wish to cancel any Contract, you must contact us via our contact details.
In addition to any applicable statutory right of cancellation, you may return Goods to us for any reason, provided that such return is within 28 calendar days after the date on which we deliver the Goods, and provided that those Goods are unworn and in their original packaging. If you return Goods to us under this clause we will at our option offer you an exchange for Goods of equivalent value or refund.
If you cancel your Contract or return Goods to us we will:
- Refund you the price you paid for the Goods. However, please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the Goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop.
- Refund any delivery costs you have paid, although, as permitted by law, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive method we offer (provided that this is a common and generally acceptable method)
- Make any refunds due to you as soon as possible.
If Goods are faulty or wrongly-delivered, we will refund the price of the Goods in full, together with any applicable delivery charges. We will also either collect the Goods from you free of charge or refund any reasonable costs you incur in returning the Goods to us.
We will refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay. If you used vouchers to pay for the goods, we may refund you in vouchers.
If any Goods have been delivered before you decide to cancel your Contract:
Then you must return the Goods to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know you wish to cancel your contract.
Unless the Goods are faulty or not as described, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Goods to us.
As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Goods that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right to return or refund in the clauses above, our Deliveries and Returns Policy or anything else in these Terms and Conditions.
