5.1. To return an item, you must use the designated form to obtain a return authorisation from us, prior to returning any items.
 5.2. You can obtain the return authorisation if you visit us as well, but only for the "in-store" orders.

6. Refunds
6.1. We aim to process the refunds as soon as possible, but no more than 30 days from the return date.
 6.2. "Refunds" means we will pay back the customer's costs. This can be done by refunding the money in the same way that the initial payment was done, offering replacement items at the same specifications and conditions, or offering vouchers, coupons or discounts in our shop or with our partners.
 6.3. We offer refunds for any eligible products or services under this policy. We may also offer a refund for non-delivered products or services. In case a customer has not received a product or service, they must open a return and explain what happened. We will then track the product and find out what happened. We may also investigate with the courier what happened and come to a solution. Our tracking details will count the most. If we can prove the product was delivered, there will be no refund issued. We will also issue no refund for items sent without a tracking number (e.g. 2nd Class services or couriers that don’t have public tracking available) or in cases where the customer is liable for wrong delivery/collection information (e.g. wrong address, wrong office number, another person collects the item in the customer’s behalf etc.).
 6.4. The refund method will be discussed with the customer and agreed together.
 6.5. Initial delivery refund (the delivery cost we paid to send the order to the customer): we will refund the initial delivery cost if the item is defective or different from the one ordered, at the time of delivery. Even if the item was sent with any “free delivery” option, there is still a delivery cost on our behalf.
 6.6. Full item cost: we will refund the full item cost if the item is defective or different than the one ordered, or is eligible under sections 2.1 and 2.2.
 6.7. Partial item cost: from the item initial cost, we may deduct any cost if the item is not eligible for return. Example of costs that may be deducted: re-stock fee, unseal fee, item returned with missing accessories etc. The deduction may vary from 10% to 100%.
 6.8. Return delivery cost: we will fully refund the return delivery cost, at the lowest price on the market. If the customer personally returns item(s) in-store, no "delivery" costs will apply, regardless of any costs involved (For example, we don't accept liability for any travel costs, time lost etc.).
 6.9. Return collection: we may arrange to collect a return from your address. You will have to pay for this service initially and, if eligible, a refund will be offered.
 6.10. No refunds issued: from time to time we may refuse to offer any refund. This is usually due to reasons that can't be imposed on us, such as the customer returning an item without authorisation, the customer being at fault for defect or use, the return not arriving to us or products arriving defective or unusable, or when products or services were not purchased from us etc.
 6.11. Refunds may also be refused for items that were solely or part of a promotion, discount, free items etc.
6.12. If a customer claims they sent the item to us, but the product didn’t arrived to us, it is customer’s obligation to get in touch with the courier for tracking.
 6.13. Final thoughts: please keep in mind the return/refund policy aims to help customers and protect their funds due to the seller's fault. We aim to help you the best we can, but it is not our obligation to do so if our fault can't be found in the situation.

The supervisor may ask for more information such as details or evidence from the customer. The customer is obliged to provide everything in the shortest time possible. Any delay at this stage will delay the final decision time.
This final decision is considered conclusive and binding on both parties. Our internal procedure is fully concluded at this stage.

 Important: No valid claim can be considered without relevant evidence submitted by the customer, regardless we requested it or not. No court claims will be considered valid unless the entire internal procedure has been completed.
