Once you have selected the Product(s), click on "complete your order" to begin the process of placing your order.
If you already have a customer account, you will be required to log in and enter your password at this stage.
If you do not yet have an account, you will be prompted to create one by confirming your email address and subsequently creating a password at the “Payment” stage. If using the mobile version of the Site, you will be asked to enter this information when logging in.

5.3.c) Confirming the order
You will subsequently receive an order summary by email. The acknowledgement of receipt will mention the total amount of the order, details of the shipping cost and delivery time, the essential characteristics, the quantity and the price and of the Products purchased.
We advise you to keep this acknowledgement of receipt as a hard copy or in an electronic format.
When an order concerns an amount equal to or greater than 120 Euros, LINNAEUS shall retain the document that embodies the contract entered into electronically between LINNAEUS and a customer for a period starting from the entering into of the contract until the date of delivery of the product and for a period of ten years from this date.

6. Price – Methods of Payment Accepted
The prices of the Products are in EUR, inclusive of taxes. Except in the cases of reimbursement issued i) within the context of exercising the right of withdrawal or ii) due to lack of conformity and hidden defects, LINNAEUS will not reimburse the VAT applied on the purchases made on the Site (even in the event where the buyer, after receipt of the Products, re-exports them to a country located outside the European Union).
LINNAEUS reserves the rights to amend the prices of the Products on the Site at any time and without any prior notice. Products are invoiced on the basis of a price list posted on the Site at the time of your order, subject to the availability of the Products ordered at this time.
All orders are payable in EUR and must be paid for immediately at the time of ordering. If any of the ordered Products are unavailable (see Section 4 "Product Availability"), only the price and the shipping costs of the available Products will be charged.
6.2. Methods of Payment Accepted
6.2.a) Payment by credit card or debit card
We accept payment by the following credit cards and debit cards: Visa®, Mastercard®. Payments by debit card are authenticated and secured thanks to the 3D Secure system. This system is also known under the names of "Verified by Visa®" or "MasterCard® SecureCode". During payment, the bank asks the Internet user for his/her personal information in order to check the identity of the card holder and to validate the transaction.
6.2.b) Store credit
Store credit issued by RÈGNE FILS stores and gift cards issued by RÈGNE FILS stores cannot be used to purchase Products on the Site.
7. Title Retention
The Products ordered remain the property of LINNAEUS until full payment for the Products has been received by LINNAEUS.
However, you assume the risks (in particular regarding loss, theft or damage) relating to the delivered Products from the moment they are delivered to the address specified when placing your order.
8. Delivery and receipt
Items can only be delivered in Switzerland and Europe, to the address provided by the Customer at the time of ordering. The Customer must provide a telephone number where they can be contacted by the delivery company, and take every necessary step to ensure they can take receipt of the delivery. The Customer is also able to request that items be delivered to a natural person of their choice whose permanent place of residence is in mainland France, for example in the case of a gift.
The Customer may choose from a number of available delivery options, some of which will incur additional costs.
Delivery charges are paid by LINNAEUS, except in cases where the Customer opts for one of the specific delivery methods offered during ordering, where the delivery charges must be borne by them; the total of these charges will be communicated to the Customer prior to their completion of the order.
Items will be delivered to the delivery address indicated by the Customer at the time of ordering, at the latest by the date indicated at the time of ordering and depending on the country of delivery.
LINNAEUS will make every effort to deliver the Order within 7 working days following the date of the Order, and commits to ensure that delivery is made within 30 working days following full payment of the corresponding total cost of the order.
Delivery times are provided indicatively and may be subject to change, especially in cases of force majeure, temporary unavailability, etc. ... The Customer shall not hold LINNAEUS responsible for any failure to adhere to these delivery times. If the delivery time exceeds 30 days after ordering, the purchase may be cancelled and the Customer fully refunded.
Items ordered are presumed shipped and received in good order. The Customer must make any complaints to the delivery company in case of loss or damage of their order at the time of delivery or within a maximum of 24 hours following the latter. Complaints must be explicit to allow LINNAEUS to assert their rights against the delivery company. Failing this, the complaint is null and void. Any complaints must also be addressed within the same timeframe to customer services at www.regnefils.com by email or by recorded letter with proof of delivery. Any complaint must contain the Customer’s contact details, references of the project purchased and the reasons and motivations for the complaint accompanied by photos. A complaint number may be issued by LINNAEUS to process the claim. Should a product be returned without a complaint number and without a copy of the invoice (which must be provided) LINNAEUS cannot guarantee that the complaint will be processed as quickly as otherwise possible. The product must be returned in its original condition and packaging, unworn, with all original tags unremoved from the item of clothing, as well as with all accessories, which should be intact, without signs of use and in perfect condition. These conditions will determine the claim’s validity and ensure the Product’s integrity and proof of the validity of the cause of the complaint. Failure to respect the aforementioned procedure and conditions will render the Customer’s claim null and void. The transport of returned Items is carried out at the risk and cost of the Customer.
Complaints regarding any delivery error relating to the order, or in case of delivery of a product which is faulty or in poor condition, must be made within a maximum of 48 hours following delivery. Beyond this timeframe, the Customer can no longer claim a delivery error or seek remedy for a delivered Product which is faulty or in poor condition.
10. Right of Withdrawal
Pursuant to EU Directive 2011/83/EU of the European Parliament and European Council of the 25th October 2011 on consumer rights in the framework of distance selling, as transposed into law in the Customer’s country, the latter is within their rights to cancel their order at any time within 14 calendar days following the date upon which they received the Items.
If the Customer is not satisfied with Items ordered online, they may exercise their right to withdrawal without giving a reason. They then have 14 days from the date of delivery of the Items to return them.

All Items purchased on the Site may be subject to refund except for those for which the opposite is stipulated (for example, personalised items).
It is recalled that Items purchased on the Site cannot be refunded in-store.
This refund procedure excludes all exchanges, so that the Customer is not subject to wait times and conditions of exchange procedures likely to cause major inconvenience to them.
No exchanges are permitted. Should the Customer wish to exchange a Product, they must return it for refund according to the terms herein and purchase a new Product of their choice on the Site.
Once returned Items have been inspected, LINNAEUS will refund the Customer as soon as possible and no later than thirty (30) calendar days following the date of reception of the return package, to the bank account or the payment account used by the Customer to pay for the Items.
The Customer’s refund request must be made within 14 days following the date of receipt of the Items ordered, as evidenced by the postmark. Where the 14 day period expires on a Saturday, Sunday, bank holiday or non-working day, this is extended to the next working day.
The Customer shall return the Product to LINNAEUS in its original condition (packaging, tags retained, copy of invoice, Product unworn and without alterations).
LINNAEUS shall fully refund the Customer for Items returned provided they have not been worn, used or damaged and that they are accompanied by their invoice and that the clothes have their original tags.

These conditions are without prejudice to the transfer to the Customer, upon delivery of the Product under these T&Cs, of all risks of loss and damage to the goods subject to the retention of title, as well as their liability for any damages caused. The Customer shall therefore take out insurance to cover the risks relating to the Product from the receipt of the latter.
