If the transportation company is forced to return an order to the seller for any of the above reasons, the seller will be free to rescind the contract with immediate effect and without any judicial intervention or to suspend any (future) delivery and without refund.

In any event, the customer will be charged for the shipping and handling as well as 20 Euro for the return and cancellation fee, in addition to any damages that the seller could claim. The seller will however resend the goods to a new address at the customer's request, if the customer agrees to pay the shipping and handling charge a second time and if he provided a corrected/new delivery address within 24 hours after the goods were returned.

To assure the freshness of the product to be delivered, sometimes the delivery may take up to 10 days from the date in which the customer placed the order. In the unlikely event of a delayed delivery from the supplier, the customer will be promptly informed.
