3.1 We aim to describe the item(s) on the Website as correctly as possible. However, as a result of different image acquisition, display technologies or other technical reasons, minor differences in colour and other variations in item(s) are possible. Van Harper cannot be held responsible for any such discrepancy.
3.2 All products will remain the property of Van Harper until you have paid all amounts owed to us in full under any agreement, including the payment of costs, earlier or later deliveries or partial deliveries. You may not sell, dispose of or encumber any product before full title thereof has passed to you.

3.4 In case of a limited edition or limited production, extra restrictions such as limiting the number of such products per customer may apply. These extra restrictions will be made known to you via the Website.

4.1 All orders are subject to acceptance and availability, and items in your shopping bag are not reserved and may be purchased by other consumers.
4.2 Once you have checked out and have received your order confirmation email, neither you nor we will be able to make any changes to your order, so please make sure that everything is correct.

5.3 The prices shown on the Website are subject to change in response to currency exchange rate changes, markdowns and other commercial factors.

All item(s) must be returned in a box to protect their form. Returns that do not meet our policy will not be accepted and will be returned to you.
8.5 We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you (such as but not limited to use and/or wearing of the goods).
8.6 We will make reimbursement without undue delay, but not later than:
(i) 14 days after the day we receive back from you any of the goods supplied; or

8.7 We will make reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction.

10.1 All Van Harper products are subject to a very high level of quality checks and are made to last. However, it is possible that some item(s) encounter material or manufacturing default. Therefore, all Van Harper items come with a one-year warranty against faults in materials and manufacture. This warranty period may vary depending on the statutory law of the country where the item is shipped. This warranty covers production faults only.
10.2 If the problem was caused by reasons other than materials quality or assembly process, the product will not be exchanged/refunded. We do not refund products:
obtained from a source other than the Website; that have been damaged by abuse or negligence (e.g. exposure to chemicals, caustic substances, open flame, high heat, sharp object, etc.); and/or
that have been damaged by misuse or activities other than the intended purpose.
10.3 Life expectancy of any product depends on the individual using the product, the conditions of use, and the characteristic wear patterns of the user. Our products damaged by normal wear and tear or that have exceeded the reasonable lifespan of the product are not replaced.
10.4 If you believe you have a warranty claim concerning an online purchase, please contact our customer service by e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include in this e-mail your original order number, photos of the suspected fault and a brief description of the claim. Our customer service will decide whether the damage is the result of a manufacturing defect or deviation from factory specifications. If our customer services determine that you have a claim, then the item(s) will be refunded or if possible replaced (based upon availability).
