3. If you have an order delivered outside the European Union, it is possible that the country in question will charge additional levies such as import tax.

Before placing such an order, you must check yourself whether the items ordered by you can be exported to or imported in the country in question and what the cost is thereof.

6. Quality

1. The products we deliver must meet the contract between you and Zoe Karssen. Zoe Karssen makes every effort to show its products on its website as precisely and completely as possible. However, it is in the nature of the offered products that there might be differences (such as colour differences) between the picture of the products on the website and the product delivered to you. Should you believe that the delivered product is not the same as the product shown on the website, you may use your return right as described in Article 7 of these Conditions.

2. Obviously, the products from the selection of Zoe Karssen meet the quality standards that you may expect. However, we expressly point out that these products have been designed from the point of view of their aesthetics and not with a view to their optimum life span, practical usefulness or ease of use.

3. The products offered in the webstore, such as garments and accessories are by nature subject to wear and tear. The life span of a product is also dependent on the material from which it is made, the frequency of use and the level of care. The products of Zoe Karssen are made from the materials indicated in the webstore. For an optimum life span and for maintaining the quality, it is important that you observe any washing instructions.

7. Return right

1. If for any reason you are not satisfied with the product you ordered, you have the right, without giving any reasons, within fourteen days after receiving the product to indicate that you wish to terminate the contract with regard to the product in question. This concerns the so-called time to reconsider. You may use your right to termination by giving any unequivocally declaration to Zoe Karssen of your termination. You could also use the return form you find on the website and attached to your order. Instructions of how to return merchandise can also be found on our website.

2. If you decide to terminate a contract with regard to a product, you have the obligation to return this product as soon as possible, but no later than fourteen days after your declaration of termination to the address of Zoe Karssen as mentioned in Article 1.1. The direct costs of the return shipment of the product to Zoe Karssen are for your own account.

3. In case of any termination as set forth in Article 7.1, Zoe Karssen will return the amount paid for the product, including the delivery costs, in question immediately and in any event within fourteen days after we receive your declaration of termination. You are not able to enforce performance of the obligation of Zoe Karssen to return all amounts paid by you, until Zoe Karssen received the products or you are able to prove that the product has indeed been sent back. It can take up to 14 business days for the refund to appear in your account depending on the payment provider.

4. If you have chosen a shipping method other than the standard shipping method used by Zoe Karssen, any additional costs thereof will not be considered for a refund.

5. The right of termination as included in Article 7.1 is meant to allow you to determine whether the product fits you and if you really want the product. You are allowed to use a product if necessary to verify if you want the product, just like you would do in a regular store. Continuous use of the product - such as wearing the product in a public space or any other actual use – makes you responsible for the decrease of value of the product. Zoe Karssen will deduct this decrease of value from the amount to be refunded to you. 

6. If a product, through your actions, has been damaged, has been washed, the labels were removed, a product is incomplete or a product shows signs of use which prove that you have used the product more continuously than as permitted under Article 7.4, you are responsible for the decrease of value of the product caused by you. Zoe Karssen will deduct this decrease of value from the amount to be refunded to you.

7. The termination right as set forth in Article 7.1 does not apply to products that are not suitable to be sent back for purposes of health protection or hygiene and whose seal has been broken after delivery.
