Returns and Exchanges
(a) Right to Cancel
You have the right to cancel the contract created by our written order confirmation without giving any reason fourteen (14) days from the day on which you acquire, or someone you nominate (other than the carrier) acquires, physical possession of the products in your order. If you are a customer based in the European Union or the European Economic Area and have made a purchase via the Sales Channels, this is considered to be your statutory right to withdraw from the contract. To meet the withdrawal deadline, it is sufficient for you to withdraw before the withdrawal period has expired. We’ve extended our Returns Policy for the festive period. Orders placed from 27 November 2020 to 31 December 2020 can be returned up until 30 January 2021 for a full refund back to your original payment method, subject to our Returns and Exchanges Policy.
To cancel the contract and return your product(s), you can contact our Customer service centre and follow the instructions that will be given to you, or you can send us in writing an unequivocal statement such as e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you may cancel using the Model Cancellation Form, but it is not obligatory.
(b) Return Process
Products that have been purchased through the Sales Channels may only be returned to our Serapian e-boutique distribution centre at the address of our Returns Department, as provided in our FAQs section through our Customer service centre.
Products that have not been purchased through the Sales Channels may NOT be returned to our e-boutique distribution centre.
To return a product to our e-boutique distribution centre, you must follow the steps mentioned below:
(i) Contact the Customer service centre.
(ii) You may choose (a) to use our pick-up service and agree on a pick-up date with our logistics partner, or (b) a parcel drop-off at any of our logistics partner’s network locations within the eligible return period. You may be asked at this stage to provide information about the product for us to make a first assessment of the condition of this product;
(iii) The Customer service centre will send you a return form by e-mail or ask you to complete the return form that was enclosed with your product delivery;
(iv) Please fill out the required information on the return form and sign it;
(v) You must include in the delivery package, the completed return form along with the product, all its accessories, any free items you received as part of your order, the Service Guide, the Warranty Card and all other documents, in their original box;
(vi) Please seal the delivery package and affix the pre-paid airway bill which will be sent to you by email from our Customer Care team when contacting them in (i) above; and
(vii) On the agreed date, our logistics partner will pick-up the sealed delivery package, or you opt for the drop-off service at any of our logistics partner’s network locations, you will be given a receipt with a return tracking number that should be kept until we send you an order refund confirmation by e-mail.
You must keep a proof of return shipment, and we accept no liability in the event that such proof cannot be produced. Only merchandise received by our Serapian e-boutique distribution centre will be eligible for a refund or exchange.
(c) Condition of Returned Products
We will verify that the returned product satisfies the conditions of the Returns and Exchanges Policy and, if so, then proceed with the applicable refund or exchange.
Our products must be returned in a new and unused state, in perfect condition, with all protective materials in place and tags and stickers attached to them (if applicable), as well as with the original Serapian box and delivery package, including all accessories and documents. For example, timepiece bracelets that have been adjusted at your request must be returned with the exact same number of links as in the original delivery package. We reserve our right not to accept any return if the product shows signs of wear, or has been used or altered from its original condition in any way or, as an alternative, may reduce the amount of any applicable refund or exchange accordingly.
If you have received free items as part of your order, they must be returned with the products.
All returns will be subject to strict Quality Control (“QC”) by us to ensure that the returned products satisfy these requirements. If the products do not meet QC standards, we will refuse the return, and the products will be returned to you. If the returned product satisfies QC, we will proceed with the applicable refund or exchange.
Failure to comply with these Conditions of Sale will entitle us to refuse the returned product and send it back to you, at your own cost.
(d) Products you cannot return or exchange
Orders for products that have been personalized in any way or otherwise made for you with bespoke specifications cannot be cancelled and such products cannot be returned to us for exchange or refund. This includes, without limitation, products that have been embossed.
You may return a product purchased through the Sales Channels for refund, provided that the return complies with these Conditions of Sale, in particular with (a) Right to Cancel and (b) Return Process above.
Only the buyer will be entitled to receive a refund of the purchase price. In no event will a person who has received the product as a gift (i.e. a “Gift Recipient”) be entitled to receive a refund. If you are a Gift Recipient and wish to return a product, please contact the Customer service centre to discuss your options.
If the return complies with these Conditions of Sale, we will use commercially reasonable endeavours to refund the purchase price to the buyer using the same means of payment as used by the buyer for the initial transaction within fourteen (14) days after receipt of the returned item by the Serapian e-boutique distribution centre. Initial shipping charges will be refunded, except where you had originally opted for a non-standard delivery, in which case the supplemental costs will be non-refundable.
You may return a product purchased through the Sales Channels for exchange with another Serapian product, provided that the return complies with these Conditions of Sale, in particular with (a) Right to Cancel and (b) Return Process above.
In any event, the sale of the returned product will be cancelled and a new order for the product ordered must be placed.
Should a product be returned to the Serapian e-boutique distribution centre for exchange with a less expensive product, only the buyer of the returned product will be entitled to receive a refund of the price difference.
If a product is returned for exchange with a more expensive product, you will have to pay the price difference.

Nothing in these Conditions of Sale limits or excludes our liability for any liability which cannot be limited or excluded by applicable law. Subject to the preceding sentence, our aggregate liability to you under these Conditions of Sale for any order whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages shall in no event exceed the one hundred percent (100%) of the price of the product(s) in your order.
Please note that in some jurisdictions consumer protection laws may not allow certain exclusions or limitation of warranties or liabilities, and consequently some of the above exclusions and limitations may not apply.
If any provision, or part of a provision, of these Conditions of Sale is found to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, that provision or part-provision shall be deemed not to form part of these Conditions of Sale, and the legality, validity or enforceability of the remainder of the provisions of these Conditions of Sale shall not be affected, unless otherwise required by operation of applicable law.
These Conditions of Sale (and associated terms incorporated by reference) constitute the entire agreement between you and us in relation to the order of products or services, and replace and extinguish all prior agreements, draft agreements, arrangements, undertakings, or collateral contracts of any nature made by the parties, whether oral or written, in relation to such subject matter.
We are not responsible for any failure or delay in performing or complying with our obligations under these Conditions of Sale which arises from any cause beyond our reasonable control.
The waiver by us of a breach of any provision of these Conditions of Sale will not operate to be interpreted as a waiver of any other or subsequent breach.
This contract is between us and you. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms. However, if you purchase a product as a gift, the recipient of your gift will have the benefit of the applicable Serapian Guarantee.
Applicable law and jurisdiction
