Returns and Refunds
1. RETURNS POLICY
We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colors of our products that appear on the Charlotte Olympia Online Store. However, as computer monitors vary, we cannot guarantee that your monitor's display of any color will be completely accurate.
All items are quality controlled and checked for any faults before they are dispatched to customers.
Should you receive an item that is not in perfect condition please contact us immediately.
Please send all items you wish to return from an order in the same shipment to ensure your return is processed as quickly as possible.
Items should be returned in their original packaging to ensure they are adequately protected in transit. Shoe boxes should also be protected as they are considered part of the product, and your return may not be accepted if the box is damaged.
1.1 Faulty Products
If you received defective products purchased online, you have the right to ask for a repair, a full or partial refund or a coupon for a future order, in accordance with the UK’s Sale of Goods Act 1979. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with images of the defective item.
Products are ‘defective’ 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 purchased 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 offer a gesture of goodwill in the form of a coupon rather than a replacement or a refund. We regret to inform you that we do not offer exchanges If you ask for a repair, we will do so only where possible and not disproportionate
