We will deliver your items wherever you like. If you want your order to be delivered at a friend's or neighbor’s house, at your place of work, etc., simply indicate this when placing your order by selecting the Colissimo or Chronopost delivery option.
You will see an estimated delivery timeframe when you select your method of delivery.
Here are the delivery options for orders placed on www.defieleskids.com:
a) Colissimo Expert with signature:
Delivery will be made directly to the intended recipient, with signature acknowledgement of each delivery by the identified recipient. In all cases, we advise you to verify the contents and condition of the parcel before signing the delivery slip. In the event of a dispute regarding the transport (breakage, damaged item, damaged packaging, etc.), we advise that you indicate this on the delivery slip, or that you notify the carrier within 24 hours. This written record with the carrier will speed up any refund requests, although it is not compulsory.
For Colissimo deliveries, if you or the recipient of the parcel is absent at the time of delivery, a delivery notice will be left, indicating when and where to collect the package. The parcel will then be held at a post office for 15 calendar days. If not collected within the time indicated by the carrier, the products will be returned to DEFI (E)-LES KIDS, which reserves the right to refund the price of the products; the shipping costs will remain at the customer's expense.
In the event of a late delivery, you will need to first contact the carrier or its distribution office in the case of delivery through the French postal system, to check whether the parcel might be on hold there. If necessary, contact www.defieleskids.com Customer Service by email in order to launch a claim or inquiry for a parcel search.
b) Colissimo Access without signature
5. RIGHT TO CANCEL, RETURN & EXCHANGE
In the case of distance sales (i.e. where the two parties are not physically present at the same time), Article L 121-20 of the French Consumer Code entitles you to change your mind and exercise your right to cancel within a period of 7 clear days, without requiring justification and without incurring any charges, with the exception of the return shipping costs. This period begins on the date of receipt of your items or acceptance of a quote for services.
Return requests are made by logging onto the DEFIELESKIDS.COM website and going to "My orders" on the "My Account" page: you will see a list of the orders you have placed; simply click on the order number, then select the products you want to return, enter the reason and submit your return. You will be given a return number. You can return the items within seven days, at your own expense and in their original packaging.
A credit note valid for 6 months will then be generated; along with a code used to apply the credit (you can access this code under "My Credits" on the "My Account" page).
Your credit note will only be processed once our Customer Service has verified the quantity and quality of the items returned to us. Items must not have been used (they may however have been tried on).
This right to cancel is exercised without any penalties, with the exception of the return shipping costs.
