I [Name] hereby give notice that I cancel my contract of sale for the following goods:
- [SPECIFY GOODS]
Ordered on [DATE] and/or received on [DATE]
Name of consumer(s):
Address of consumer(s):
Signature of consumer(s) (only if this form is sent on paper):
a) We shall to you all payments received from you, including the costs of the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by Us (i.e. if you choose to have the Product delivered at a higher cost, then We will only refund what you would have paid for the least expensive type of standard delivery offered).
b) We will reimburse in the same means of payment as for the initial transaction; in any event you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement. Please note that if you pay fully by , the amount paid can only be reimbursed as a Gift Card. If partial payment is made by Gift Card, the amount paid via your chosen payment method will be reimbursed first via the same payment method. Any remaining amount will then be reimbursed to your Gift Card.
c) Your refund will be made within from the day on which you We were informed of your cancellation or, if earlier, the day on which we receive the Product(s) back from you or you provide Us with evidence that you have sent the Product(s) back to Us.
d) Where you have paid any duties or taxes directly to the relevant authorities on the importation of the Products you wish to return, We shall have no liability in relation to any claim for a refund of such duties or taxes from the authorities.
e) We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any damage suffered by the Product(s) if this has been caused by your handling them. If We refund you the price paid before We are able to inspect the Product(s) and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay Us an appropriate amount.
f) Please retain your delivery note until you have received your refund.
g) If the item which you are returning was purchased in a currency other than your local currency, any refund will be paid in the same currency as purchased. Due to fluctuations in currency exchange rates the amount refunded may be higher or lower than the original price paid.
h) Vouchers and customized Products can generally not be replaced or returned.
i) It is not currently possible to return Products purchased in Swarovski Stores through the Websites.
j) Please note, that if you decide to return only part of an order that has been purchased with a discount / promotion offer applied, the discount / promotion offer will be re-calculated.
k) If you decide to return only part of an order that has been purchased with a discount/promotion offer applied, the amount refunded will be subject to the minimum purchase amount placed on the offer, the value of the discount will be adjusted accordingly, and only the amount relevant to the returned item will be refunded. If the items returned bring the remaining total below the minimum purchase level of the offer, then the discounted amount will be deducted from the refund amount.
For example, a 10% discount (with a minimum purchase amount of EUR 100) will be removed if the returned product(s) brings the total order value below EUR 100. In case of a promotion with staggered prices, always the lowest amount will be refunded.
For items which come in a single box (“normal set”), if you wish to return any of the items within the normal set, you will have to return all the items that were part of the normal set. Swarovski will not accept returns of individual items within the normal set and will only accept returns of the entire normal set.
For bundle-promotional sets, where you enjoy a promotion or discount as a result of purchasing one or more items (e.g. buy 3 items and get 10% off each item or where savings for each product are stated), you can return any of the items purchased separately. However, in case you choose to return any items purchased as a bundled set, kindly note that Swarovski will adjust the promotional price by charging you the regular price for the remaining items that you purchased as part of the bundle. Accordingly, Swarovski will deduct from the amount to be refunded to you (i.e. the discounted price paid for the item(s) in the bundle that you have returned) the difference between the regular price and the discounted price of the remaining items in the bundle that you do not return.
We warrant the Products are of merchantable quality and free from material or workmanship defects, provided they are subject to normal use. No additional guarantee is provided.
The warranty period is from receipt of the Product(s).

- economic losses (including without limitation, loss of income, revenues, data, actual or anticipated profits, contracts, business, opportunity or anticipated savings); or
