6. Rejection of Order
We reserve the right to withdraw from this website any product at any time and/or remove or edit any material or content on this website.

We shall not be liable to you or any third party for withdrawing any products from this website and for removing or editing any materials or contents of the website or for refusing to process or accept an order after we have sent you the Confirmation Order.
Subject to the provisions of clause 5 above regarding product availability and subject to the occurrence of exceptional circumstances, we will make every effort to complete your order for the product(s) listed in the Order Confirmation until the delivery date specified in the Order Confirmation or, if no delivery date has been set, within the estimated time shown when selecting a payment method, and, in any case, no later than 30 days from the date indicated in the Order Confirmation. Product delivery is carried out through our partner carrier and their delivery time worldwide ranges between three and four (3-4) business days from the day following the Order Confirmation. Deliveries on Saturdays or Sundays are possible only after coming in contact with the partner carrier and at an extra cost.
However, delays may occur in some cases, e.g. depending on the delivery area or in unforeseen circumstances.
If for any reason we are unable to meet the delivery date, we will notify you to this regard and offer you the option to either continue the purchase based on the new delivery date we have set or cancel the order and receive a full refund without interest.
For the purposes of these Terms, the "delivery" shall be deemed to have been completed or the order to have been delivered when you, or a third party at your instruction other than the carrier, have acquired the physical possession of or control over the products, which will be evidenced by the signature on the order delivery receipt at the agreed delivery address.
If it is impossible for the carrier to deliver your order, then the carrier will leave you a note explaining where your order is located and what you should do to receive it and will contact you by telephone. If your order has not been delivered 10 days after the time it is available for delivery, for reasons not due to our fault, we will assume that you wish to cancel the Contract and the Contract will be deemed ended. As a result of having the Contract ended, we will refund you without interest any payments we received from you, as soon as possible and in any case no later than 14 days from the date on which the Contract has ended.
Should your order be lost by reason of the carrier’s fault we will notify you and arrange, if you still wish to complete the order, to replace the products and send you again the same products, otherwise we will refund you without interest any payments we received from you.
9. Transfer of Risk and Product Ownership
Liability for the products shall be transferred to you from the time you, or a third party acting at your instruction other than the carrier, have acquired the physical possession of or control over the products. Ownership of the products passes to you either upon collection by us of all sums due with respect to the products including delivery costs, or by delivery thereof (as defined above in clause 7) if delivery follows the collection.
10. Price and Payment
The price for each product will be the one specified at any given time on our website, except in cases of manifest error. We always take care to ensure that all prices on the website are accurate; however, errors may occur. If we find any error in the price of any product you have ordered, we will inform you as soon as possible and give you the opportunity to confirm the order with the correct price or cancel it. If it is impossible to contact you, we will assume that your order has been cancelled and we will refund you any and all amounts you have paid. We are not obliged to supply you with any product at the incorrect lower price (even if we have sent you the Order Confirmation), where the price error is obvious and indisputable, and can be reasonably identified by you as an incorrect price. The prices on our website include VAT but no shipping costs, where you are charged with Shipping Costs. Based on our company policy, we provide free shipping for orders over forty euros (€40.00) within Greece. A shipping charge of four euros (€4.00) applies to orders under forty euros (€40.00). Shipping is free for orders within the European Union for purchases over one hundred euros (€100.00). A shipping charge of ten euros (€10.00) applies to orders under one hundred euros (€100.00). Lastly, a shipping charge of thirty euros (€30.00) applies to all orders outside the European Union regardless of the value of the products purchased. Prices may change at any time; however, subject to those specifically mentioned immediately above, any changes will not affect orders for which a Confirmation Order has already been sent.
Once you have selected all the products you wish to purchase, these products will be added to your shopping cart; the next step is to forward the order and pay. To do this, you must follow the steps in the purchase process by filling in and verifying the information requested at every step. Further, during the buying process, before payment, you may change the details of your order. You are provided with a detailed description of the purchase process in the Shopping Guide. The record with all your orders is available in "My Account". Payment can be made by cash on delivery, by credit cards Visa, Mastercard and American Express and through PayPal.
To minimise the possibility of unauthorised access, your card details will be encrypted at the safe environment of the bank that you will be redirected to proceed with the payment. It is possible for the bank to request a pre-authorisation for your card to make sure there is sufficient credit balance to complete the transaction.
Your card will only be charged if your order is sent for delivery from our warehouse. If payment is made via PayPal, the amount will be debited upon confirmation of your order.
When you press the button "Checkout" you confirm that your credit card is valid and has sufficient funds. Credit cards are subject to validation checks and authorisation by your card issuer. If your card issuer does not authorise payment, we are not responsible for any delay or non-delivery and we cannot conclude the Contract with you.
11. Return Policy

The cooling-off period expires after 14 calendar days from the day you or a third party acting at your instruction, other than the carrier, acquire the physical possession of or control over the products, or after 14 calendar days, where more products have been ordered, from the day you or a third party acting at your instruction, other than the carrier, acquire the physical possession of or control over the last product. In order to exercise the right to cancel the contract, you may notify our company at the above address or call +30 2103400000, or email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org, or inform us of your decision to cancel this Contract by expressly stating so on our contact form (e.g. by sending a letter by post).

11.2 Results of Cancellation
If you cancel this Contract we will refund without interest and without delay, and in any event within 14 days from the day we were informed of the cancellation and return of the products to our company, all payments we received from you. The refund will be made by the same payment method you used for the original transaction. In any case, you will not incur additional costs for such refund. Notwithstanding the above, we may however withhold the refund either until we have received all products back or until we have received evidence that you have returned the products, whichever occurs first.
Specifically, in this case, the return and delivery of the products to us will be done by contacting us at +30 210340000 or email at email@example.com. Then you should call a courier service to collect the products from you and return them to the headquarters of our company. Once we receive them we will refund you, as specified in the previous paragraph and in any event within 14 days, the total amount of your purchases to your card or according to the payment method you have selected, provided the clothes are in good condition. You will only be charged with the costs of returning the products to us. In this case the products cannot be delivered to BODYTALK retail stores.
You are responsible for any impairment of the products' value as a result of such treatment which alters their nature, characteristics and functionality.
The right can be exercised under the following conditions: The product must have not been used, the tags or labelling (e.g. stickers, brand labelling, etc.), which are placed on the products of clothing, footwear and accessories, must have not been removed. In addition, all products must be returned in perfect condition as they were when acquired without damage, without any defect (subject to the return of a defective product), complete and in their packaging (for items that are received in special packaging), and should also be accompanied by all necessary documents.
12. Return and/or replacement policy for defective products - Exchange of products.
Our company takes every possible measure to ensure that all products (regardless of type) are packed specifically and carefully in order to reach you without damage. In very rare cases, however, it is possible that some of these products may have been damaged during shipment to you or you may receive a product with a defect. For this reason, irrespective of your right to cancel the Contract as above, which is not affected, we invite you to check the products upon receipt.
If you receive the product without expressing a specific reservation it means that you have received the product from us unconditionally. However, if you find that there is damage and/or a defect in the product, then you can inform us by contacting by phone at +30 2103400100 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, stating to us whether you wish to have it replaced with a new one or you wish to rescind. If you wish to receive a new product in replacement, the new product will be sent at no additional charge.
If the product you received is proven defective by the manufacturer, then: for clothes, shoes, apparel accessories you may request their replacement with the same or another product of your liking and/or the issue of a credit note, or a refund without interest of the payment where the product you want to replace is not available, provided you will send the relevant electronic order no later than five (5) days of receipt.
You can also exchange any product purchased from eshop, within thirty (30) days, at any BODYTALK retail store except for the stock-houses. Product exchanges are made by fulfilling the Return Form and following the exact procedure that is referred there. Then you should call our partner carrier to collect the products from you and return them to the headquarters of our company. Once we receive them, we will return to you new products of your choice of equal value with those replaced. An obvious condition is that the products that are being replaced must be in good condition. You are not charged with the cost of returning the products to us.
