4. Right of withdrawal and rescission
4.1. We are a charity project. For us each return is a challenge, therefore only exchanges are accepted and no refunds are made unless the product is damaged. In this case, the damage should be reported within 7 days after receipt. If the customer dislikes the product, he or she may pay the shipping costs plus 20 CHF administration fee to exchange it within 30 days against another product on mama-tierra.org. The deadline for exercise of this right shall begin on the date on which the goods arrive at the customer. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org before returning the goods, otherwise the goods will not be accepted. The returned merchandise must be in perfect conditions to be resold, which means to be like it was sent by Mama Tierra (including tags and flyers).
4.2 If a customer withdraws from the purchase because the goods are defective, Mama Tierra will refund amounts already paid if the customer reports the defect within 7 days by email: email@example.com. Shipping costs, return shipping costs or customs fees will not be refunded. The defects must be described in detail. Small variations in the sample are not considered defects, as it is handmade and each product is unique. The products/samples are 90% similar. Returns will not be accepted after the 7-day defect notification period mentioned above. If the delivery does not reach the buyer within the period mentioned in point 3.1 due to logistic or other problems for which Mama Tierra is not at fault, this shall not be considered a reason for cancellation.
