Therefore, in the event of any difficulties occurring with regard to the supply of products or if they are no longer available in stock, we reserve the right to provide you with information on substitute products of the same or higher quality and value than those you had ordered. If you do not wish to order these substitute products, we will refund any amounts you may have paid.
Except in the event of exceptional circumstances, we shall send the order containing the product(s) listed in the Delivery Confirmation within the timeframes stipulated on the website for the selected delivery method and in any event within 30 days following the date of the Order Confirmation.
For the purpose of these Conditions, the “delivery” will be considered as made, or that the order has been “delivered” at the time you or a third party you have indicated for this purpose, acquires physical possession of the goods, which will be accredited by signing the receipt of the order at the agreed delivery address.

If after 30 days of the order becoming available for delivery it has still not been delivered for causes not attributable to BETTIES or the transport company, we shall assume that you wish to cancel the contract and that it is therefore terminated.
As a result of terminating the Contract, we will refund any amounts we have received from you, excluding the delivery costs, without any undue delay, and in any event within a maximum period of 14 days from the date when we consider that the Contract has been terminated. Please bear in mind that transportation arising as a result of terminating the Contract may incur additional costs, as a result of which we are authorised to charge you the corresponding costs.

Your card will be charged as soon as the bank authorises the transaction.
By clicking on “Authorise Payment”, you confirm that the credit card is yours or that you are the legitimate holder of the gift card.

The withdrawal period will expire 14 calendar days after you or a third party appointed by you, other than the courier, acquired actual possession of the goods, or, if the goods included in your order were delivered separately.
In order to comply with the withdrawal period, all that is required is to deliver a notification of your intention to make use of this right within the corresponding period.
13.2 CONSEQUENCES OF WITHDRAWAL
If you withdraw from the Contract, we will refund the payment you have made to acquire the product without any undue delay, and in any event within at least 14 calendar days from the date on which you inform us of your decision to withdraw from the Contract; in case the product is not in perfect conditions we will have the right to deny the refund. The delivery fee will not be refunded.
We will make the refund using the same means of payment you used for the initial transaction. You will not be charged any additional costs as a result of the refund. However, we may withhold the refund until the goods have been received, or until you have supplied evidence of having returned the goods, depending on whichever condition occurs before.

No refunds will be made on products that have been used beyond their mere opening, for products that are not in the same state as when they were delivered, or if they have been damaged in any way. It is therefore important that you handle the products carefully whilst they are in your possession.
