  6. Quality and Information Accuracy
    1. Scotch & Soda makes every effort to show its products on its website as precisely and completely as possible. However, it is in the nature of the offered products that there might be differences (such as color differences) between the picture of the products on the website and the product delivered to you. Should you believe that the delivered product is not the same as the product shown on the website, you may use your return right as described in Article 7 of these Conditions.
    2. Obviously, the products from the selection of Scotch & Soda meet the quality standards that you may expect. However, we expressly point out that these products have been designed from the point of view of their aesthetics and not with a view to their optimum life span, practical usefulness or ease of use.
    3. The products offered in the webstore, such as garments and accessories are by nature subject to wear and tear. The life span of a product is also dependent on the material from which it is made, the frequency of use and the level of care. The products of Scotch & Soda are made from the materials indicated in the webstore. For an optimum life span and for maintaining the quality, it is important that you observe any washing instructions.
    4. Scotch & Soda will use reasonable efforts to include accurate and current information on the webstore, but there may be occasions when information on the Site contains typographical errors, inaccuracies or omissions that may relate to product descriptions, pricing, availability and other matters. Scotch & Soda reserves the right to correct any errors and to update webstore information at any time (including after you have submitted your order). We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.
  7. Third Party Companies and Products
    1. Mention of third-party products, companies and websites on the webstore is for informational purposes only and constitutes neither an endorsement nor a recommendation. Scotch & Soda does not assume any responsibility with regard to the selection, performance or use of these products or vendors. Scotch & Soda provides this only as a convenience to our users. All third party products must be ordered directly from the vendor, and all licenses and warranties, if any, take place between you and the vendor.
  8. Return right
    1. If for any reason you are not satisfied with the product you ordered, you have the right, without giving any reasons, within fourteen days after receiving the product to indicate that you wish to terminate the contract with regard to the product in question. This concerns the so-called time to reconsider. You may use your termination right by using the return form as attached to your order. Instructions of how to return merchandise can also be found on our website.
    2. If you decide to terminate a contract with regard to a product, you have the obligation to return this product as soon as possible, but no later than fourteen days after termination to the address of Scotch & Soda as mentioned 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 any termination as set forth in Article 8.1, Scotch & Soda will return the amount paid for the product in question immediately and in any event not later than fourteen days after receipt of the message that you wish to terminate the contract, but not before Scotch & Soda has received the returned product in question or you are able to prove that the product has indeed been sent back. If you have chosen a shipping method other than the standard shipping method used by Scotch & Soda, any additional costs thereof will not be considered for a refund.
    4. The right of termination as included in Article 8.1 is meant to allow you to determine whether the product fits you and if you really want the product. You are allowed to use a product if necessary to verify if you want the product, just like you would do in a regular store. Continuous use of the product - such as wearing the product in a public space or any other actual use – affects your termination right as determined in more detail in Article 8.5.
    5. If a product, through your actions, has been damaged, has been washed, the labels were removed, a product is incomplete or a product shows signs of use which prove that you have used the product more continuously than as permitted under Article 8.4, you are responsible for the decrease of value of the product caused by you. Scotch & Soda will deduct this decrease of value from the amount to be refunded to you.
    6. The termination right as set forth in Article 8.1 does not apply to products that are not suitable to be sent back for purposes of health protection or hygiene and whose seal has been broken after delivery.
