Under Belgian law, Belgian Customers have a period of fifteen (15) days to exercise this right. In the event of withdrawal, all return costs will be borne by the customer. This period is calculated as a business day : if the period expires on a Saturday, Sunday or a public holiday, the period is extended until the first following business day at midnight. In order to facilitate the handling of the Customer’s withdrawal request, it is possible to send such a request to STONELEAF by email or telephone. The Customer may be asked for photos of the products to ensure their condition.

STONELEAF will carry out quality control of the Product at the warehouse. The Products must be in new condition, returned in their original packaging, without any trace of use, and be accompanied by their accessories and instructions for use or assembly, if any. It is only after verifying that these conditions are met that STONELEAF will reimburse the sums received for the returned products. If the conditions mentioned are not met, the Customer’s reimbursement will be reduced by the amount corresponding to the loss in value of the Product, noted during the inspection.
Once the Products have been returned in accordance with the procedure described above, the refund (not including the initial shipping costs of the Product) will be conducted within a maximum period of thirty (30) days following the date of receipt of the returned products by STONELEAF. Beyond this term, these sums bear interest at the legal rate. Return costs are always the responsibility of the Customer. Throughout the procedure, the Customer will be informed by e-mail of the receipt of his will to withdraw, of the return of his package, as well as of the date of reimbursement.
