ARTICLE 10– RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL

The aim of www.lanvin.com is to guarantee the Customer's entire satisfaction. However, if for any reason the Customer is not satisfied with their order, they may, without penalty, subject to the terms set out in the General Terms of Sale, exercise their right of withdrawal within fourteen (14) days from the date on which they have received the Products purchased on www.lanvin.com. The Products that the Customer wishes to return must, within fourteen (14) days of the date on which they have exercised their right of withdrawal, be returned by the carrier of their choice or consign them to the UPS carrier according to the terms specified below. The Products may thus be returned by having the package sent by the carrier indicated by the supplier (UPS), provided that the Return Form that the Customer will find online in the My Account section or by contacting Customer Care. However, the chosen item may not be exchanged for a different one.


10.1 Terms for exercising the right of withdrawal:

The terms for exercising the right of withdrawal are as follows:
a) The Customer is invited to carefully fill in the return request in his customer area, in the framework where he registered, within 14 days following the date of receipt of his order. If the Customer has placed the order as a guest, or if he encounters difficulties, the return request can be made directly to our Customer Service;
b) The Products must not have been worn, used, modified, washed or damaged and, in all cases, comply with the conditions stated in the section on the Conformity checks below;
c) The refund label must still be attached to the Product with the single-use seal;
d) The Products must be returned in their entirety, unused and in their original packaging;
e) The returned Products must be consigned to the carrier within fourteen (14) days of the date on which your right of withdrawal is exercised.

If the Customer has complied with all the requirements, the Vendor will refund the price of the Products purchased and returned, as well as the originally paid delivery costs, less the costs related to the direct return costs which remain at the Customer’s expense.

If the Customer chooses to use UPS, the Customer will not have to pay or advance the return costs to the UPS courier, which are directly borne by the Vendor. The return costs will only be paid by the Vendor for one consignment. Therefore, in the case of multiple consignments, the return costs of the other consignments will be borne by the Customer.  Should the Customer chooses to use a carrier different from that proposed by www.lanvin.com, the Customer will have to pay the return costs directly to the carrier they have chosen.

 

Returns may be shipped by the UPS carrier specified by Vendor.

Until December 31, 2020, for any return the customer must either create a return in "My Account" section if registered as a user, or must contact the customer care which will send them a return voucher, a pre-printed label to affix to the package.

As of January 1, 2021, the Customer will be able to use the pre-printed adhesive label which they will find inside their package. This process will allow the Vendor to pay the return costs to the carrier directly and to check at any time where the package is located. The Customer will contact UPS to arrange the return of the Products. If for the return of the Products, the Customer decides to use a different carrier from that indicated by www.lanvin.com, they will personally pay the return costs and they will bear responsibility for loss or damage of the Products during the carriage.
The Customer will be contacted again if their return cannot be accepted as it does not comply with the conditions stated in paragraphs a) and e) of Section 10.1 above. The Customer may choose to have the Products they have purchased sent back to them. In the absence of such a request, the Vendor may keep the Products, in addition to the amounts already paid for their purchase.

10.2 Conformity checks:
The Products must be returned in their original condition, unused, in perfect condition, with all protective packaging, labels, and adhesives affixed to them (if applicable), including all accessories and documents. The Vendor reserves the right to refuse any Product return that shows signs of wear, or that has been used or modified compared to its original condition in any way, or alternatively, reduce the refund amount or the value of the exchange, as the case may be.
For example, the Vendor may choose to grant a partial refund in the following cases:

  • the product(s) have been used, worn, damaged, or washed;
  • the single-use sealed identification label is not attached to the product(s) or has not been returned. The Customer should note that the identification label is an integral part of each product; and/or
  • the Customer has not returned a packaging item that is an integral part of a product (e.g. the dust bag or storage bag).

 

The Customer will be informed if the Vendor decides to reduce the amount of the refund for this reason. In this case, the Customer may (rather than obtain a partial refund from the Vendor) choose to have the Products returned to them at their expense. If the Customer refuses this delivery, the Vendor reserves the right to keep the Products and the amount specified as a partial refund due to the loss of value of the returned Products.

10.3 Refund time limits and terms:
After receipt and verification by the Vendor of compliance with the requirements, the Customer will receive an email confirming acceptance of the return of the Products. Regardless of the payment method used (credit/debit card), the refund is activated by the Vendor as soon as possible, no later than fourteen (14) days after the Products are delivered to the UPS carrier or, in the case of another carrier, on receipt by the Vendor of proof of shipment of the Products, provided that exercising this right meets all the conditions set out in the General Conditions of Sale.
The actual time needed to re-credit or refund amounts depends on the payment method used:

  • credit/debit card purchase: the refund time depends on the bank that issued the credit/debit card. The Vendor recalls that the date of the new credit (which is deemed to be the refund) will be the same as the debit date, as a result of which the Customer will not suffer any bank interest penalty;
  • purchase via PayPal: the refund on the customer's PayPal account will be visible immediately. The actual refund on the credit card of the Customer’s PayPal account depends on the credit card company;

If it is a gift, a refund of the amount will be made to the person who made the payment.

10.4 Product labels:
All Products offered for sale by the Vendor have a label fastened by a single-use seal. The Customer is requested to try the item without removing the label or the corresponding seal since returned Products will not be accepted if they are missing.

 

ARTICLE 11 – STATUTORY WARRANTY

The Vendor shall be liable for non-conformity of the good with the contract under the conditions of Article L. 217-4 and following of the Consumer Code and for hidden defects of the thing sold under the conditions laid down in Articles 1641 and following of the Civil Code.

 

 

When acting on the basis of the statutory conformity warranty, the Customer:

 

  1. has a two-year (2) period from delivery of the good to act;
  2. may choose between repair or replacement of the good, unless such a choice leads to a clearly disproportionate cost in relation to other solution, taking into account the value of the good or the importance of the defect. The Vendor will then be required, unless it is impossible, to implement the solution not chosen by the Customer;
  3. is exempted from reporting proof of the existence of the non-conformity of the good for twenty-four (24) months following delivery of the good.

 

The statutory conformity warranty applies irrespective of the commercial warranty which may be granted.

In the event of a conformity defect of a delivered Product, the Customer may return the Product with the conformity defect to the Vendor, in its original condition, which must have the original labels and the original packaging and the delivery note, specifying in advance to the Vendor the reasons for the return by contacting the Customer Service.

Failing this, the Vendor will neither repair nor refund the defective Product returned.

 

Should the return of the defective Product be well-founded, the Vendor will repair or refund the defective Product and the delivery costs, excluding any other compensation.

With the exception of the above cases, no Product exchange or repair is permitted.

    • if it has the qualities that a buyer may legitimately expect, given the public statements made by the seller, the producer or his representative, in particular in advertising or labeling; 2° Or if it has the characteristics defined by common agreement by the parties or is suitable for any special purpose sought by the buyer, brought to the attention of the seller and accepted by the latter.”
  • Article L.217-12 of the Consumer Code: “An action resulting from the lack of conformity lapses two years after delivery of the good”.
  • Article 1641 of the Civil Code: "The seller is bound by the warranty of the thing sold for hidden defects which make it unsuitable for the use for which it is intended or which reduce this use so much that the buyer would not have purchased it, or would only have given a lower price if he had known of them.”
