General Terms & Conditions
Pip terms and conditions
These terms and conditions apply to all agreements entered into with Pip Boutique B.V. By ordering from pipstudio.com you accept the Pip Boutique B.V. general terms and conditions. You can download the general terms and conditions here.
Opening hours and contact information
We can be reached by phone on Monday through Friday from 09:00 to 17:00 on +31 (0)30 2271060. On Saturday and Sunday we cannot be reached by phone. Off course you can also send us an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your agreement with Pip
Pip is entitled to refuse an order, but also to attach special conditions to the order. If Pip is unable to determine your home address your order will not be accepted. The agreement takes effect the moment that Pip confirms your order by email.
Prices and costs
The prices on pipstudio.com include 21% VAT and exclude order and shipping costs. The order and shipping costs, charged with every order, within the Netherlands, amount to € 4.95. Other rates apply outside the Netherlands. For more information see Delivery.
Import and custom expenses
The import and custom expenses will be calculated the moment that the order enters the country of destination. These costs must be paid by the recipient of the package. Pip has no control over these costs and cannot indicate how high these costs will be beforehand, since they vary by country.
If you are in doubt contact your local customs office prior to ordering so that there are no surprises when your package is delivered.
Pip ships accepted orders as soon as possible. Your order will be shipped within 24 hours after payment has been received, if all articles are in stock. If a delivery cannot be carried out, or not in time (for example because the ordered articles are not in stock), you will be informed of this within 14 days after your order. Pip is not liable for damages resulting from exceeding the announced delivery times.
You should check the articles for possible damages before using and/or washing them. Used and/or washed articles can unfortunately not be returned. It may be that an article shrinks up to 4% (bedroom textiles, bath textiles and home textiles), but they will still be able to be used for their intended purpose. If an article does not fit because we delivered the wrong size, see the section Returns.
Not home upon delivery
If your order has been presented twice by DHL (DPD for France) and then was not collected at the post office/depot, it will be returned to Pip. If DHL (DPD for France) has to present the package again, there will be extra costs involved. These costs will be charged to the recipient. As soon as the payment for this has been received, the order will be presented for the third time. If you no longer wish to receive your order, the total amount (excluding the shipping costs) will be returned to you.
If your order is rejected at the provided delivery address, the order will be returned to Pip. We can send your order again, but you will be charged delivery costs for this. If you decide to no longer receive your order, the total amount (excluding the shipping costs) will be returned to you.
Delivery of delayed articles
Sometimes an article is not in stock. Because of this your order will be sent only once the article is in stock. We will inform you of this by email. When ordering multiple articles it may be that only one part of the order is in stock. In that case we may send multiple shipments of your order. Off course, Pip will bear any additional shipping costs.
A packing slip is included with every shipment. Among other things, the packing slip shows articles that have been delivered and their prices. It also has the return label which you include with a return shipment.
With all purchases you have a term of approval of 30 days. In this period you have a right of withdrawal. This means that you have the option of returning the articles that you have received. The articles should be returned in the original packaging and in an unused state. After receipt of the return, Pip will return the amount to you. The costs of the return shall be at own account.
If you receive an incorrect article, a flawed article or an incorrectly delivered order, you should return the order to Pip, unused, within 7 days. In that case Pip will pay the return costs. If it involves an order with a flaw (weaving flaw, discolouration, etc.), Pip will replace it and return it cost-free.
Returning Homewear and Beachwear
Homewear and Beachwear can be returned on condition that:
- the article is packed in the original packaging (including tissue paper);
- the article is unworn, undamaged, unaltered, unwashed and clean;
- you kept your underwear on during fitting, from a hygienic perspective;
- the hygiene strip in bikini bottoms and swimwear has not been removed;
- the price tag is still attached.
If it is found that you failed to observe one of these conditions, the return will not be accepted. You will be informed of this decision by email and the article will be returned.
All shipments sent by Pip, are insured by Pip. If you notice transport damage to your package before opening, contact Pip right away at email@example.com. If you notice the damage only after you have opened the packages, contact Pip within seven days. Unused damaged articles are replaced by Pip, free of charge. If you contact us about the damaged articles only after seven days, we will unfortunately not be able to replace the damaged articles free of charge.
