Product Prices are those in effect on the day the Order is placed, as shown in the shopping cart when the Product is selected. Product prices are stated in Euros and are inclusive of all taxes but exclusive of the buyer’s share of costs for handling, postage, and packaging.

Any costs incurred as a result of incorrect information provided by the Customer shall be borne exclusively by them.
If the Customer does not collect their package within the time limit set by the postal services, it will be returned to L'ÉTIQUETTE by the carrier. The Customer may then request either to cancel the Order and be refunded the price of the Order (minus postage or shipping costs), or alternatively to have the Order reshipped at their own expense.
