5. CHARLOTTE OLYMPIA STANDARD R&E POLICY
This paragraph 5 sets out our standard policy for returns and exchanges for purchased products (the “Charlotte Olympia Standard R&E Policy”) for the UK, Europe (except where the CRs apply) and all other countries that we deliver to outside the UK and Europe (the “Rest of the World”) and we agree to allow you to return your purchased products for a refund or exchange in accordance with the following policy. This is an alternative to cancellation under the Consumer Contract (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2014 (“CRs”), covered by paragraph 6 below. The CRs shall automatically apply to all customers in the UK, Europe or where a purchased order is being sent to a European address. If you are such a customer, we will assume you are cancelling under the CRs , however if you request a return authorisation code we will assume you are cancelling your order under the Charlotte Olympia Standard R&E Policy.
When you request a return, you must either specify that you would like a refund or an exchange within 14 days from the day you receive your ordered product, in accordance with Paragraph 5.3 (Delivery and Collection of Returns and Exchanges) below. All purchased products being returned must be returned (including those being exchanged) in full including in their original condition, unused, undamaged, unsoiled, unaltered and complete with all original Charlotte Olympia packaging. In the case of the ABC collection or any other products which a customer may be able to customise or personalise, these must be returned in an unsued, undamaged, unaltered, uncustomised and unpersonalised condition, and in the condition as originally received including with all original Charlotte Olympia packaging or any bespoke packaging for such product and without goods having been customised or personalised by customer. All boxes, dust bags, heel tips, polaroids and all other things included in your purchase should be included with your return and are deemed part of the product. All shoes should only be tried on a carpeted surface until you are certain you are keeping them. We are not obliged to accept returns that do not meet the above conditions and we may (a) refuse a refund in such case and (b) send such products back to the customer or require the customer to arrange for their collection from us, in each case at the customer's cost.
Unless you have asked for an exchange, we will refund to you the price, for the returned purchased products, within 14 days of receiving the products back at our warehouse in compliance with the return conditions above, less any shipping charges and your refund will be credited to the original payment card. Card refunds may then take up to 10 business days for your bank to complete, depending on their processing time. You will receive a notification email upon completion of your refund.
Unless the products were received by you damaged or faulty, we will not be obliged to refund to you any shipping or any amounts paid by you to us with respect to export or import taxes and costs. Further, import taxes and costs, whether paid by you directly or paid by you to us, may be non-refundable. You may however be able to recover import taxes and costs by contacting your local customs bureau directly.
Returned products, to the extent your purchased product was paid using a virtual gift card, will not be refunded in cash and will be refunded only as value to the virtual gift card or as a separate virtual gift card.
EUROPE AND THE REST OF THE WORLD: Different delivery charges will apply for addresses in Europe and the Rest of the World. Such delivery and collection charges are set out on our site.
If you ask for an exchange of your purchased product, you may only exchange your product for the same colour product, but of a different size. You may not exchange your product for a different product or the same product of a different colour, unless we agree on a case-by-case basis, in our sole discretion, at the time. Exchanges will be subject to stock availability. We will notify you if an exchange is possible.
Exchanged products will be dispatched to you upon our warehouse having received the original products (or any previous exchanges) in the return condition required above in the first paragraph of Section 15.1, which shall be incorporated herein, and all other delivery and collection charges have been paid by you. Where there is difference in price between the exchange products and the original products, either you must pay the difference before we are obliged to supply the exchanged products using the original payment card or we must refund you the difference in accordance with the refund terms above, less any deductions or withholdings we are entitled to make, each as the case may be. In respect of further exchanges, we may, at our sole discretion, refuse such further exchanges for a product after the first exchange, particularly, if we have reason to suspect that you are not acting in good faith.
REST OF THE WORLD: Exchanges delivered to destinations to the Rest of the World outside of Europe will be processed for customs clearance and therefore any relevant import duty and tax charges will apply. This means that you will be responsible for paying for import taxes and costs for the exchange products and arranging for their import in accordance with your payment and delivery obligations as detailed herein and in the Terms & Conditions.

The following shall apply for all returns and exchanges under the Charlotte Olympia Standard R&E Policy and not where the cancellation of an order is under the CRs.

If you arrange for such return, and your return incurs VAT, customs or duties charges, these costs will be billed to you, whether at first instance or charged at a later date to you by Charlotte Olympia, who has initially borne such costs on your behalf. Further such products will remain your full responsibility and at your risk until accepted at our warehouse. We recommend that you return the products to us by secure means to ensure that they reach us in good condition and insure the return shipment, as you are under a duty to take reasonable care of the products and will be liable for damage to them until we receive them at our warehouse.

We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you.
7. FAULTY PRODUCTS
If you receive faulty purchased products, you have the right to ask for a repair, exchange, reduction in the price or a full or partial refund, in accordance with the UK’s Sale of Goods Act 1979. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with images of any of your purchases, which you consider have been delivered faulty.
Products are "faulty" if they do not conform to the implied terms under the United Kingdom Sale of Goods Act 1979, which require that our products sold must correspond to their description and be of satisfactory quality.
Special points to note: If your products become faulty within 6 months of your receiving them, then the law will treat them as having been faulty when you received them. Items that are damaged as a result of normal wear and tear are not considered to be faulty. If you ask for a refund, we may be entitled to reduce any refund to take account of any use you have had of the products since they were delivered to you. If you would like to exchange a faulty product instead of obtaining a refund, we can only replace it for the same product in the same size as those purchased and any exchange is subject to availability. If you ask for a repair, we will do so only where possible and not disproportionate. If you ask for a repair or replacement and we do not provide one in a reasonable time or have reason for not providing one (other than due to your fault), then you will be entitled to exercise your right to ask for a reduction in price or refund.
