The charge will be made the moment we confirm the order. Credit cards are subject to validation checks and authorization by your card issuer but if your card issuer fails to authorize payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery and may not be able to form a Contract with you. Throughout the purchase process, before payment, you can modify the details of your order. Prior to payment obligation, you will be provided with an order summary stating basic qualities of the goods, the price of the goods, the right of withdrawal and procedure of use and forfeiture of such right.

16. EXCHANGE/RETURN POLICY.
16.1 Statutory right to cancel your purchase. If you are contracting as a consumer, you have the right to cancel the Contract, within 14 days, without giving any reason and without any fines (except for Contracts for those products mentioned in clause 16.3 below, for which the right to cancel is excluded). It is important to note that "Vicuna-Mode" does not cover return shipping costs. We recommend that you use your local postal service and have a tracking number. The cancellation period will expire after 14 days from the day on which you, or a third party nominated by you (other than the carrier), takes physical possession of the products, or in case of multiple products in one order delivered separately, after 14 days from the day on which you, or a third party nominated by you (other than the carrier), takes physical possession of the last product. To exercise this cancellation right, you must notify us Vicuna Mode of your decision to cancel the Contract with a written notice (via email contact@vicunamode.com or postal mail at Place des Martyrs 1, 6041 Gosselies, Belgium). To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of this cancellation right before the cancellation period has expired. If you have any questions, you can send an email  contact@vicunamode.com. Reimbursement will be without undue delay including delivery costs to the place of the original delivery as soon as possible, and in any event not later than 7 days from the day we have received the notification regarding the use of cancellation right. The refund method will be the same as the payment method you used during the initial transaction. Regardless of the foregoing, we may defer the refund until we have received the returned products or you have provided us with proof of the latter, whichever is earlier. The deadline is met if you send back or return the products before this 14 day period has expired. You are only liable for any diminished value of the products resulting from the handling other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the products. 
 16.2 Contractual right to cancel your purchase. In addition to the statutory right of cancellation of consumers referred to in Clause 16.1 above, we grant you (whether or not you are a consumer) a 14 days period, beginning on the Shipping Confirmation, to return products to us without giving any reason (except those products referred to in Clause 16.3 below, regarding which the cancellation right is exempted), you will be refunded the price paid for the returned products only - delivery and other costs will not be refunded. 
16.3 Common provisions. You shall not have the right to cancel the Contract when it is for the delivery of any of the following products: 1. Customized items. 2. Sealed products that are not suitable for return due to hygiene reasons that have been unsealed after delivery (such as underwear, accessories, jewelry, and swimwear). 3. Sale products. Upon delivery, you may handle the products to establish their nature, characteristics and functioning. Acceptable handling of the products is that which would reasonably be allowed in a shop. If your handling goes beyond what is acceptable and the products are damaged or diminished in value, we may deduct from the amount we reimburse to you, or you may be liable to us for, an amount equal to the diminished value of the products.  Please return the products using or including all their original packaging, instructions, and other documents, if any, accompanying the products. In any case, you must send the product to be returned together with the invoice which you will have received when the product was delivered.
16.4 Returns of defective products. In addition to your statutory rights in relation to defective products, we offer the following contractual right in respect of defective products. In circumstances where you consider that the product does not conform to the Contract at the time of delivery, you should contact us as soon as possible via  our email ; contact@vicunamode.com We will fully examine the returned product and will notify you of your right to a replacement or refund (if any) via email within a reasonable period of time. We will usually process the refund or replacement as soon as possible and, in any case, within 14 days of the day we confirmed to you via email that you are entitled to a refund or replacement of the defective product. Products returned by you because of a defect, where one exists, will be refunded in full, including a refund of the delivery charges for sending the item to you and the cost incurred by you in returning the item to us. We will always refund any money received from you to the credit card originally used by you to pay for your purchase. This clause does not affect your statutory rights.
