Terms and Conditions

These General Terms and Conditions apply to all contracts entered into with REFINE, Okutex AG, Hintere Poststrasse 12, 9011 St.Gallen, Switzerland (“REFINE”). You acknowledge these terms and conditions in the version valid at the time of placing the order in the context of the order process.


Conclusion of Contract and Delivery of Product

All contracts concluded over www.refine-store.com are entered into with REFINE. By clicking the "purchase" button the customer has made a binding order. A binding contract is entered into when you received the order receipt.

The ordered products are delivered as soon as we have received the customer's payment in full.

The seller shall not be liable for delays in delivery caused by third parties.

REFINE’s performance is an obligation to send. REFINE’s obligation is fulfilled with the handover of the ordered product to the transport company. After dispatch, the risk of accidental deterioration and accidental loss of the product passes to the customer. REFINE is not responsible for any fault of the transport company used.


Tax, Custom Duties and Shipping Costs

The prices quoted at the time the order is placed apply. For orders inside the EU and Switzerland the prices quoted are final prices, i.e. they include the statutory VAT at the time.

Shipping costs, custom duties and all other occurring costs are not covered by REFINE and must be paid by the customer in full.

Please note that all shipments outside the EU may be subject to Import Duty/ Tax/ VAT which are levied once the shipment reached your country. 

As we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be, additional charges for customs clearance must be paid by the recipient of the parcel. Such charges are not included in the purchase price of REFINE products. We will not be responsible for the payment of any Import Duty / Tax / VAT under any circumstances.

We are not able to offer a refund for returned goods which are returned because the customer wishes to avoid paying any customs duties imposed.

When ordering from REFINE you agree to pay any Import Duty / Tax / VAT which may be imposed by your country's government. If you refuse to pay any Import Duty / Tax / VAT imposed and thereby prevent delivery of your order you will remain liable for the purchase price of the order and any Import Duty / Tax / VAT or penalty imposed by your government.


Returns and Exchanges

We hope that you love your REFINE order, however if you are unhappy with our products, they can be exchanged or returned to us within 14 days of your receipt. All sales will be final after 14 days of purchase. 

For returns or exchanges of your order please follow these steps:

  • Email orders@refine-store.com and quote ‘Return’ or ‘Exchange’ as well as your unique order number and reason for return within 14 days of receipt. 

  • Goods must be received back to us within 7 days of the authorisation being granted.

  • If you would like an exchange, subject to availability the new item will be shipped to you after the returned item has been received and checked by us. 

  • Goods should be returned unused and packaged as per the original order with all the original inner and outer packaging. Failure to do so can result in deductions being made to the value of the refund and refunds/exchanges being refused.

  • It is your responsibility to cover postage costs for returns and exchanges. Please make sure to use an insured shipping method as we are unable to refund or exchange items that are damaged or lost in the post. 

Please note we do not refund shipping costs, taxes or duties incurred. 

If items meet our return terms, the sum debited from your credit or debit card will be re-credited to your account as soon as the goods are received and processed, excluding the initial shipping cost.
