CANCELLATION OF CONTRACT AND RETURN OF PRODUCTS

If you are entering into the Contract as a customer, you can cancel the Contract for any reason by sending Voisins a Cancellation Notice before the expiry of the Cancellation Period.

Products must be returned to Voisins at 26-32 King Street, St Helier, Jersey, JE4 8NF, in person or by post. The returned Products must be received by Voisins within 28 days of the Cancellation Notice. You shall be responsible for bearing the cost of return of all Products, save for Faulty Products (see section 8).

If you fail to return Products for which you have been refunded, Voisins may collect them and charge you for the direct cost of collection. 

You have a duty to retain possession of all Products which are to be returned and to take reasonable care of them. You must send the Products at your own risk to Voisins, ensuring that the Products are packaged adequately to protect against damage. If your failure to take reasonable care of the Products results in damage or deterioration, you will be liable to Voisins for the reduction in value of the Products.

Voisins will not accept for return any Products which are damaged, have broken seals or are otherwise not as new, but for Faulty Products, although it is acceptable that you may open the outer packaging to inspect the Products.

In the interest of hygiene, hosiery, lingerie and bedding cannot be returned, unless they have remained in their original wrapping unworn and unused or are Faulty Products (see section 8).

Where the Cancellation Notice is received by Voisins within the Cancellation Period, Voisins shall reimburse you the Contract Price of the returned Products within the period of 30 days from receipt of the Cancellation Notice.

FAULTY PRODUCTS

If you are entering into the Contract as a consumer and Voisins supplies you with a Faulty Product, you have additional rights and remedies under The Supply of Goods and Services (Jersey) Law 2009.

If you wish to return a Faulty Product, you must send Voisins a Cancellation Notice as soon as possible on discovery that you have received a Faulty Product, or at the latest within 6 months of receipt of the Faulty Product.

Faulty Products must be returned to Voisins at 26-32 King Street, St Helier, Jersey, JE4 8NF, in person or by post.  The returned Faulty Products must be received by Voisins within 28 days of the Cancellation Notice. 

Voisins may repair or provide replacement for a Faulty Product if it is practicable to do so. You must allow Voisins a reasonable time to carry out any repairs or to provide replacement. Alternatively, Voisins may offer you a discount off the Contract Price of the Faulty Product. 

If you prefer, you may choose instead to rescind the Contract. Voisins shall reimburse you the Contract Price of the Faulty Product within the period of 30 days from the Cancellation Notice. Any reimbursement Voisins makes to you may be reduced to take account of the use that you have had of the goods since they were delivered to you.

Voisins shall reimburse you for the cost of return of any Faulty Products within the period of 30 days from the Cancellation Notice, where you have provided a valid postage receipt.

If the Products are found to have been damaged by yourself after delivery, Voisins will contact you to inform you and discuss this. It is your responsibility to arrange collection of any unauthorised returns from our premises. Accordingly, Voisins reserves the right to return these Products to you at your cost. Voisins will not refund either the initial cost of delivery to you or the cost of returning the Products to Voisins.
