If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at Conditions 8.2.1 to 8.2.3 below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation.

8.4 How long do I have to change my mind? For most products bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within fourteen (14) days. In order to ensure the satisfaction of our customers we extend this to allow up to 30 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the products, unless your products are split into several deliveries over different days. In this case you have until 30 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receive the last delivery to change your mind about the products.

9.4 When we will pay the costs of return. We will pay the costs of return:
9.4.1 if the products are faulty or misdescribed;

9.5 How we will refund you. We will refund you the price you paid for the products including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.
9.6 Deductions from refunds if you are exercising your right to change your mind. If you are exercising your right to change your mind:
9.6.1 We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the products, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. For shoes in particular, we highly recommend that you try your Louis Vuitton shoes on a clean floor which would not alter the sole, such as a carpeted surface. Please note that the amount of the reduction could be equal to the full amount of the price if we are unable to sell the returned products because they do not meet our high standards of sale. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the products and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
9.6.2 As standard delivery is complimentary, we will not refund delivery costs if you choose to have the product delivered by Express or Premium delivery.
9.7 When your refund will be made. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are exercising your right to change your mind, your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind, except that we may withhold refund if you did not permit collection of the products as required under these Terms of Sale within a reasonable time after notifying us of your decision to cancel the contract, or until you show us evidence you have dispatched the products in case you decided not to use our collection service.
10. Our rights to end the contract
10.1 We may end the contract if you break it. We may end the contract for a product at any time by writing to you if:
10.1.1 you do not make any payment to us when it is due;
10.1.2 you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the products to you or collect them from us.
10.2 You must compensate us if you break the contract. If we end the contract in the situations set out in Condition 10.1 we will refund any money you have paid in advance for products we have not provided but we may deduct or charge you reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your breaking the contract.
11.If there is a problem with the product
11.1 How to tell us about problems. If you have any questions or complaints about the product, please contact us. You can telephone our Client Service Team or email us.
11.2 Your legal rights. We are under a legal duty to supply products that are in conformity with this contract. Nothing in these terms will affect your legal rights.
11.3 Your obligation to return rejected products. If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject products you must allow us to collect them from you. We will pay the costs of collection. Please call our Client Service Team or email us to arrange collection.
12. Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you
12.1 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
12.2 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the products; and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
12.3 We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the products for domestic and private use. If you use the products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
13. Other important terms
13.1 Nobody else has any rights under this contract. This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
13.2 If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
13.3 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
13.4 Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.
13.5 Alternative dispute resolution. Alternative dispute resolution is a process where an independent body considers the facts of a dispute and seeks to resolve it, without you having to go to court. If you are not happy with how we have handled any complaint, you can submit a complaint for online resolution to the European Commission Online Dispute Resolution platform.
