Swann offers its customers bespoke shirt gift boxes. These sets are available in store and online. They can then be used on the online site with the code found on the back of the box which should be entered in the field provided for this purpose at online check-out. Gift sets and vouchers are valid for one year from purchase. After this time, the code is disabled and gift vouchers will not be accepted. However, as a gesture of goodwill and on an exceptional basis, the code can be reactivated in exchange for a payment of 30 euros, provided that the owner of the box or the voucher will use it within 3 months of its expiration date.
Swann offers customers the opportunity to obtain vouchers by referring friends. After the first purchase of each referred friend, the referrer is credited with a voucher worth 20 euros to be used for future orders. For the referral system to work, the referred friend must create an account via the email he received from the referrer and must include the email address of the referrer when creating an account. If it is believed that a person has “self-referred" from a different account, Swann reserves the right to cancel the use of the voucher without this causing a cancellation of the sale. Similarly, the use of a gift set will not necessarily lead to the production of a voucher. Lastly, only a first order for the shirt by the referred friend enables the referrer to receive a voucher: orders for ties, cufflinks and gift sets, for example, are excluded.
The vouchers generated by referrals are valid for 1 year from their date of creation.
9.1 - For all our custom-made or personalised products, the right to cancel cannot be applied in accordance with the provisions of Article L 121-20 of the French Consumer Code, as amended by Ruling No. 2001-741 of 23 August 2001 which states that the cancellation period is 7 (seven) days, and that the cancellation (section 121-20.2 third paragraph) of the supply of goods clearly personalised or made to specifications of the consumer is not included, that is to say particularly for items which are bespoke, made to non-standard or personalised measurements. As such, no cancellation period will be given with respect to articles which are bespoke or personalised (to specific sizes), to all non-standard items and to items with additions or specific modifications (tailor-made shirts etc.).
9.2 - For any other product offered on our website which does not give rise to specifications on the part of the customer, the customer has a period of seven (7) days from the receipt of the order to terminate the contract of sale which was made when the order was confirmed (Article 3). In the event that the products have already been delivered to the Customer, the latter must return them to Swann without having to give reasons or to pay penalties.
10.1. - Products comply with French legislation.
