Refund relating to the right of withdrawal
If you choose to withdraw your purchase in accordance with the terms set forth in this section 11, Acne Studios will issue a refund of the amount paid to Acne Studios including the shipping cost you have paid for the delivery from Acne Studios to you. However, if Express shipping or PostNord Home Delivery has been used, Acne Studios will not issue a refund of the original shipping fee. Acne Studios will pay the refund within 14 days of the date on which we have received your notice of withdrawal, under the condition that Acne has received the product/s from you or if Acne Studios has obtained proof that the products have been sent back to Acne Studios. The refund is made using the same payment method you used at the purchase if you do not explicitly accept another method. You will not be charged extra if another payment method is used. Please note that Acne Studios only issues a full refund if the product/s is in the same conditions as at the time of delivery. If the products’ value has diminished due to your handling of the products to a greater extent than is necessary in order to ascertain its characteristics or function, you have an obligation to reimburse us. Thus, Acne Studios then has the right to withhold such amount of the refund. To avoid a deduction, please make sure the product you wish to refund is in the exact same condition as when you received them, with tag and seal still attached. All shoes must not be used at all or on a carpeted surface until you have decided to keep them. Shoes and accessories that come in a special box must be returned in their undamaged original box which is considered to be a part of the product.
Purchased products are exchangeable into a different size and color in accordance with the terms set forth in this section 11. All exchanges are based on stock availability. If you have exchanged a product, Acne Studios will pay the shipping costs for the new product. Please note that sale products are non-exchangeable but can be returned with a full refund. Please note that if you wish to exchange a product for a new product and/or size and the order has been placed with Klarna simply return your product and place a new order with your preferred payment method. If the complete order is returned, your Klarna invoice will be cancelled. However, if you have made a partial return, a new updated invoice will be sent to you by e-mail. The new order is paid for separately and will be handled as a new order.
