The Seller does not guarantee that all Products shown on the website www.erstwhile.be are available. The Seller reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to change certain Products, to remove them from the assortment or to no longer make them available for sale.
We try to deliver ordered Products on time. Instances can, however, occur wherein we are prevented from dispatching the Products on time and from meeting our indicated delivery time. Any delivery time specified by us should therefore be considered as a non-binding estimate and not as an obligation to achieve the result of delivering the Products on the estimated delivery date.
Within a reasonable period from delivery, you should verify whether you have received the Products in good condition and whether the contents of the delivered package are complete. It is your responsibility to inform us as soon as possible of any damage to the Products and/or any shortages in the Products delivered.
In case you postpone the delivery or the receipt of the Products for an unreasonably long time after we have informed you that we have attempted to deliver the Products to you, or in case you have provided with an incorrect delivery address as a result of which the Products have been returned to us after the first attempt to make delivery, we will assume that you have exercised your right of withdrawal and we will refund the price paid for the Products in accordance with our return policy and the relevant applicable legal provisions.
6. IMAGES OF PRODUCTS ON www.erstwhile.be
The presentation of the colours of the Products on this website depends amongst others on the settings of your monitor and the graphic card of the visitor of the website. The colours presented may therefore differ from the actual colours of the Products.
For settlement of online payments we cooperate with 2CHECKOUT. We do not have access to the confidential details of payment of our customers. Payment can only be made by authorized credit or debit cards. The authorized cards are mentioned on the website www.erstwhile.be. You will need to provide the details of the card when you place your order. The costs will be charged when the ordered Products are dispatched.

We will in any case only approve requests for return if it concerns a complete product (for example, the two elements of a pair must be returned together), the Product has not been washed or used in any way , and the Products are returned in the original packaging.
It is your responsibility to ensure that the Products remain safe and protected while under your custody. Treat the Products with care and return them in the condition in which they had been delivered to you. Please ensure that the Products are packaged appropriately.
Return or replacement of the Products can only take place after we have received all of the Products to be returned.
In case you return Products which you 1) were not authorized to return, 2) which are no longer in their original state, 3) which have not been packaged appropriately, 4) which are incomplete, 5) for which you have not paid for the delivery, 6) or in relation to which you have not exercised the care required for returning the Products in good condition, we reserve the right to reject your return and to reject the requested refund or to charge you for the costs required to undertake the necessary repairs, re-stocking or similar direct costs arising out of or in connection with the payments which need to be refunded to you (without prejudice to the applicable legal provisions).
Refunds can only take place after all Products have been returned to us in their original state and after we received them. When you chose to pay with credit card, you will be refunded on this card.
