5.8 List Holder’s Entitlement to Return Products and Cancellation of Gift List
(a) In certain circumstances, we may in our discretion allow the List Holder to return Gifts in exchange for another item, the value of which is equivalent to the price paid for the Gifts by the respective Guest. This does
not apply to:
(i) personalised items;
(ii) audio/video recordings and software that have been unsealed;
(iii) items (such as earrings and cosmetics) that cannot be returned for hygiene reasons (unless they are faulty);
(iv) all items in our "
Premier Collection" -- these are items that have been made to order that we cannot ourselves return, and these items will be clearly indicated as Premier Collection items on the Website.
(b) If the List Holder wishes to return any gift, the List Holder should contact us initially by telephone or by e-mail to request authorisation, which request must be confirmed in writing (including by e-mail) and will only be considered granted when authorisation is confirmed in writing by us.
(c) In other circumstances (including, without limitation, the situation where we are unable to obtain the Gift for reasons beyond our control) we may substitute a Gift with absolutelymatanot gift vouchers of equivalent value to the price paid for the Gift by the Guest. If this becomes necessary, we will discuss it with the List Holder before making the substitution.
(d) If the List Holder needs to cancel a Gift List for any reason, the List Holder must let us know as soon as possible. This will enable us to close the Gift List to prevent further purchases being made and to discuss how the List Holder would like the Gift List (and any Gifts that have already been purchased) to be dealt with.
The cancellation of a Gift List must be confirmed in writing, in order to take effect. Where the List Holder constitutes more than one person, we can only act upon the written instructions of both or all of such persons.
(e) All Gifts are gift packaged for safety and security. If any Gift is delivered to the List Holder in a damaged condition, the List Holder must notify us immediately,failing which the List Holder will be deemed conclusively to have accepted such Gift.
If the List Holder is introduced to absolutelymatanot Gift List through a charity newsletter, e-mail, announcement or other communication from a charity, and notifies us of this, with details of the charity in question, when compiling the List Holder’s Gift List, then the charity in question will receive a donation from us based on the total value of Gifts purchased from the Gift List in question. The basis for calculating such donation may vary from time to time in our absolute discretion, and for details of the current basis, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
