Order conditions

Exchanges, returns and refunds

Contract cancellation

Under the Distance Selling Regulations, the Customer has a legal cooling-off period of fourteen working days to cancel the contract without providing any reason. This cancellation period begins the day the order is received. Returns, exchanges, and refunds are subject to certain conditions, which may be found below in the section hereunder entitled "Conditions of exchange and return". These conditions of exchange and return, as well as the product conditions, do not affect the statutory right to cancel and apply only to the Sarenza right to return.

To exercise this right of withdrawal, the Customer must inform us of his decision to withdraw from this contract by an unequivocal statement.

The Customer may use the model withdrawal form hereunder.

Model withdrawal form:
To Sarenza S.A., 27-29 rue de Choiseul - 75002 Paris - France:
- I/We (1) hereby give notice that I/We (1) withdraw from my/our (1) contract of sale of the following goods (1)/for the provision of the following service (1),
- Ordered on (1)/received on (1),
- Name of consumer(s),
- Address of consumer(s),
- Signature of consumer(s) (only if this form is notified on paper),

(1) Delete as appropriate

Sarenza offers a period of 100 days to return or exchange an item after it has been delivered, subject to the respect of the conditions hereunder.

Refund of returns

Sarenza.co.uk will refund all payments upon receipt and verification of return of the items without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which Sarenza.co.uk is informed about the Customer's decision to withdraw from this contract.

Sarenza.co.uk may withhold reimbursement until reception of the goods to our warehouse or until evidence of having sent back the goods has been given, whichever is the earliest. The customer will be refunded via the payment method used to place the order.

Return/exchange cost

Sarenza bears the shipping costs for all returns and exchanges. This is the same for both the Sarenza cancellation period as well as the statutory right to cancel.

Conditions of exchange and return

The item(s) returned must be new, unused, and in the perfectly intact original packaging. Any exchange or return must be done via an exchange or return request in the "My Account" section of the Sarenza.co.uk website.

The exchange order will be dispatched within 48 hours of the returned items being returned to stock. If the amount of the customer's exchange order is more than his or her initial order, he or she may pay the price difference online with a debit/credit card or via PayPal. The dispatch of the customer's exchange order is conditional upon confirmation of this payment.

The customer must retain the proof of postage of the package given to him by the Collect+ store assistant. If the package is lost, no refund will be given without the proof of postage.

The customer may make a single request for a return or exchange online on the site www.sarenza.co.uk

Product condition

All returned items (shoes, original packaging, accessories, instructions, & etc.) must be returned completely intact. 
Sarenza.co.uk will determine whether the items are in perfect condition upon receiving the package. No returns will be accepted if the returned items have been visibly used or damaged by the customer and if this use or damage has rendered the items unsuitable for sale. If the return is refused by Sarenza.co.uk, then the items will be returned to the customer at Sarenza.co.uk's expense. The customer may not demand any compensation, nor is he entitled to any refund, unless he subsequently exercises his warranty rights for sold goods.

The same requirements apply to exchange items. In the event of an exchange, if the returned items have been visibly used or damaged by the customer and if this use or damage has rendered them unsuitable for sale, then Sarenza.co.uk may exercise all corresponding actions of recovery from the customer.

Payment

Customers may pay for their purchases with a debit/credit card (Visa or Mastercard) or via PayPal. The payment will be confirmed upon receipt of any additional information requested (in case of payment by debit or credit card that requires further verification).

Sarenza.co.uk reserves the right to verify the personal information given by the customer and to adopt any measures deemed necessary to ensure that the person whose bank account is being debited is the same person who placed the order. This is to prevent any fraudulent payments. This verification may take the form of a request for proof of identity and/or address and/or bank documents (BBAN or void cheque). If the customer fails to respond to such a request within two days of the request made by Sarenza.co.uk, the order in question will be automatically cancelled, with no option to make a subsequent complaint.

Sarenza.co.uk is also entitled to directly cancel an order that presents one or more risk factors of fraudulent bank card use.

Sponsorship

“Tell a friend” allows a Sarenza.co.uk customer (the recommender) to benefit from a £5 voucher when he or she gives Sarenza.co.uk the details of a friend (the recommended friend) via the "tell a friend" module on the Sarenza.co.uk website and the recommended friend then places a minimum order of £40. 
A £5 voucher is awarded to the recommender when the following conditions are met:

  • The recommended friend has never bought anything from Sarenza.co.uk before, though he may have already created an account.
  • The recommended friend has not already been recommended by someone else.
  • The recommended friend has placed a minimum order of £40, the order was cleared and dispatched, and the payment for this order has been made to Sarenza.co.uk

Using the sponsorship voucher

A recommender may use his voucher on any minimum order of £40. Subject to the vouchers’ validity, he may accumulate sponsorship vouchers to pay for one single order, and he may use them in conjunction with any promotional offer, including all sales and promotions. 
The voucher awarded is automatically present in the recommender’s basket. To benefit from the reduction the voucher offers, it must be selected at the time of checkout. The reduction will be immediately deducted from the order amount. 
Under no circumstances may the voucher be converted into cash, nor may Sarenza.co.uk be requested to deduct the value of a voucher that has not been selected or may be faulty from an order that has already been confirmed and paid for, as the order will have already been processed. 
In the event that a recommender returns an order, the voucher(s) used for the payment of this order will be re-credited to the corresponding customer account once the return has been accepted. This will be proportionate to the value of the returned goods. 
In the event that a recommended friend returns an order, if the products kept by the recommended friend are of a value less than £40, the recommender's voucher will be debited from his customer account. If the recommender had already used all of his or her vouchers, he or she will therefore owe the corresponding £5 to Sarenza.co.uk. Sarenza.co.uk reserves the right to claim the additional payment from him, including through legal channels. 
The term of validity of the recommender's or recommended friend's voucher is one year from the date of issue. 
Sarenza.co.uk reserves the right to modify these conditions at any time and cannot be held liable for this in any capacity whatsoever. 
All activities of mass recommendation are banned by whatever means. 
Self-recommendation activities are also prohibited for which the participant registers with different addresses in order to arrange a fictitious recommendation allowing him to receive the benefits. 
If Sarenza.co.uk discovers any serious irregularities by a participant of the recommendation programme, Sarenza.co.uk may take the necessary measures to stop these irregularities and consequently cancel the benefits and other reductions that would have been unduly awarded to the participant.

Exclusive item sales

Sarenza.co.uk organises exclusive item sales on its website, www.sarenza.co.uk. These reductions cannot be combined with any other offers and are automatically applied to the customer’s basket. Procedures for ordering, payment of items, delivery and returns are still as described in these Terms and Conditions.
