  3. Offer and Agreement
    1. When you buy an article via the webstore of Scotch & Soda, you enter into an agreement with Scotch & Soda. The agreement starts when Scotch & Soda has sent a confirmation to the e-mail address specified by you.
    2. An agreement arising from an offer which contains an obvious mistake and/or error, such as an unusually low price, is not binding upon Scotch & Soda. Please contact Scotch & Soda when you doubt the validity of an offer.
  4. Price and Payment
    1. The price quoted in the webstore when you place an order is the total price including all taxes and, if applicable, delivery charges.
    2. You can pay for your order in the ways indicated in the webstore of Scotch & Soda. It is not possible to use Scotch & Soda gift cards in the webstore.
  5. Order Processing and Delivery
    1. Scotch & Soda aims to process and deliver your order as smoothly and quickly as possible.
    2. Orders are shipped to the delivery address provided by you and via the means of delivery chosen by you.
    3. If the delivery address is located outside the European Union, it is possible that the country in question charges additional levies, such as import tax. Scotch & Soda has no influence or control over such levies and can therefore not provide you with further information. You must check yourself if the ordered articles can be exported and imported to the country in question and what the costs are, before placing such an order.
    4. Ownership of the ordered products passes to you as soon as Scotch & Soda has received full payment.
    5. Scotch & Soda takes great care to ensure that products are shipped accurately and in full. Should you unexpectedly receive incomplete or damaged products, please contact Scotch & Soda.
  6. Quality
    1. Scotch & Soda aims to display products on its website as fully and accurately as possible. The nature of the offered products may result in differences (such as colour differences) between the display of products on the website and the product delivered to you.
    2. All the products in the Scotch & Soda collection meet your expected quality standards. However, we expressly point out that these products are designed from an aesthetic point of view, and not with a view of optimum lifespan, practical usefulness or ease of use.
    3. The products on offer in the webstore, such as garments and accessories, are naturally subject to wear. The lifespan of a product is partly dependent on the material of the product, the intensity of use and the level of care. The products of Scotch & Soda are made from the materials listed in the webstore. For optimum lifespan and quality, it is important, where necessary, to follow the washing instructions.
  7. Right of Withdrawal
    1. You have the right to terminate the agreement within 30 days after receipt of all the products in your order, without giving any reasons for doing so. This is the so-called cooling-off period. You can use your right to terminate the agreement by sending us the completed return form, but this is not required. You can also inform us in any other unambiguous way that you wish to terminate the agreement (for example by e-mail or post). More information about return options can be found on our website.
    2. If you choose to terminate the agreement as far as a particular product is concerned, you are required to return this product as soon as possible, but no later than 30 days after receipt of all the products in your order, to the address of Scotch & Soda as stated in Article 1.1. The direct costs of the return shipment of the product to Scotch & Soda are for your own account.
    3. In case of termination within the meaning of Article 7.1, Scotch & Soda refunds the amount paid for the product in question (including any paid delivery charges) immediately and in any case no later than fourteen days after receipt of the notice that you wish to terminate the agreement, but not before Scotch & Soda has received the returned product in question or you are able to prove that the product has indeed been returned. If, when placing your order, you chose a different delivery method than the cheapest standard delivery used by Scotch & Soda, we will not refund any extra costs resulting from this upon termination of the agreement.
    4. The termination right within the meaning of Article 7.1 is meant to determine if the product is suitable and if you indeed want the product. It is permissible to use the product as far as necessary to verify whether or not you actually want the product, just like you would do in a retail space. Further use of the product, such as wearing the product in a public space or any other actual use, affects your termination right as set out in more detail in Article 7.5.
    5. When you return a product that you have damaged, has been washed, the labels have been removed, a product is incomplete or a product contains other signs of wear which show that you have used the product more extensively thanpermitted under Article 7.4, you are liable towards Scotch & Soda for the decrease in the value of the product caused by you. Scotch & Soda will deduct this decrease in value from the total amount to be refunded to you.
    6. The termination right within the meaning of Article 7.1 does not apply to products that are not suitable for return due to health and hygiene reasons and where the seal has been broken after delivery.
  8. Changes to these Conditions
    1. If Scotch & Soda decides to change these Conditions, it will publish the changed Conditions on its website. You are advised to check on a regular basis if the Conditions have changed. Any changes do not apply to orders that were placed before the date of change. These Conditions were last changed on February 10, 2017.
