Article 7 Right of Withdrawal
7.1 The Consumer may dissolve (ontbinden) the Contract without stating any reasons within a period of fourteen (14) calendar days from the day of receipt of the Product or the last Product of all the Products if several Products have been ordered in the same order.
7.2 The Right of Withdrawal expressly does not apply to the following Products:
- Products produced in accordance with the Consumer's specifications;
- sealed Products that cannot be returned due to health protection or hygiene reasons, including but not limited to swimwear and lingerie, and whose seal has been broken after delivery.
7.3 The Consumer must handle the Product(s) and packaging with due care during the Cooling-Off Period. The Consumer may unpack or use the Product(s) only in so far as necessary to assess whether he or she wishes to keep the Product(s). The basic principle here is that the Consumer may handle and inspect the Product(s) only as he or she would be allowed to do in a shop. The Consumer is liable only for any loss of value of the Product(s) that results from a manner of handling the Product(s) that goes beyond what is permissible.
7.4 If the Consumer wishes to exercise the Right of Withdrawal, he or she must state his or her name, the name of the Product, the number of Products, the order number and his or her invocation of the Right of Withdrawal by means of the Model Withdrawal Form attached to these General Terms and Conditions, or in another unambiguous manner, for example by e-mail. Fabienne Chapot will send acknowledgement of receipt of the notice of return to the Consumer as soon as possible.
7.5 The Consumer must return the Product(s) to Fabienne Chapot as soon as possible, but no later than 14 days after the day following the notice referred to in Article 7.3. The Consumer has in any event fulfilled this obligation if the Product(s) is/are returned to Fabienne Chapot within this 14-day period. If the Consumer exercises his or her Right of Withdrawal, he or she must return the Product(s) to Fabienne Chapot’ address together with all the accessories delivered and in their original condition and packaging. The Consumer bears the risk and the burden of proof of the timely and correct exercise of the Right of Withdrawal.
7.6 The costs of returning the Product(s) are payable by the Consumer.
7.7 The Products returned must be in the condition corresponding to normal use for the purpose of fitting as is customary in a shop, and must bear the original labels and tags. If a Product has deteriorated in quality or if the original labels and tags have been removed, Fabienne Chapot reserves the right to charge or not to refund the purchase price of the Product.
7.8 Within fourteen (14) calendar days after the Consumer notifies Fabienne Chapot of the return of the Products, Fabienne Chapot will refund the purchase price and any shipping costs charged, provided that the Product in question is undamaged and has not been worn, washed, used or altered, and has its original packaging and labels. Fabienne Chapot will not refund the purchase price until it has received the Products or until the Consumer proves that he or she has returned them.
7.9 If the Consumer has opted for a more expensive method of delivery than standard delivery, Fabienne Chapot is not required to refund the additional costs of the more expensive delivery method. Fabienne Chapot uses the same payment method for refunds as that used by the Consumer.

8.1 The prices stated on the Website are in euros, inclusive of VAT and exclusive of shipping costs, unless otherwise stated or agreed on in writing.
8.2 The prices of the products and services offered will not be increased during the validity period stated in the offer, except for price changes due to changes in VAT rates. The Consumer will be notified separately, before the time of ordering, of any contribution to the shipping costs. That contribution may depend on the size of the order, the place of delivery and the shipping method chosen.
8.3 After placing an order, the Consumer immediately receives a confirmation by e-mail, as well as a separate email stating the total costs, including the shipping costs.
8.4 The Consumer may pay for the ordered Products using IDEAL, a credit card, a gift card or an after-pay option (such as PayPal or Klarna).
8.5 When payment is made by credit card, Fabienne Chapot reserves the right to check whether the credit card is valid, whether the available spending capacity suffices to debit the purchase amount, and whether the Consumer’s address details are correct. Fabienne Chapot reserves the right to refuse a credit card purchase.
8.6 The Consumer must immediately notify Fabienne Chapot of any inaccuracies in the payment data provided or stated.
If the Consumer fails to meet any payment obligation in a timely manner, after Fabienne Chapot has notified him or her of the late payment and given him or her a period of 14 days to meet that payment obligation, Fabienne Chapot may charge the statutory interest on the outstanding amount as well as the extrajudicial collection costs incurred by Fabienne Chapot. These collection costs amount to a maximum of 15% of outstanding amounts up to €2,500, 10% of the next €2,500 and 5% of the next €5,000, subject to a minimum of €40. Fabienne Chapot may derogate from these amounts and percentages in favour of the Consumer.

9.8 If Consumer refuses or fails to provide information or instructions that are necessary for delivery, the Products destined for delivery will be stored at the Customer’s expense and risk.
9.9 If the Consumer states an incorrect address for delivery, Fabienne Chapot may charge any additional shipping costs to the Consumer.
9.10 Late delivery does not entitle the Consumer to any damages or give him or her the right to dissolve (ontbinden) the Contract or not to perform any obligation that may arise for the Consumer from the Contract or from any related Contract, subject to the provisions of Article 9.5.
