Returns & Exchanges Policy
Simon De Winter Group Pty Ltd (Fine Lines, we or us) endeavours to make your shopping experience easy.
If you are not satisfied with your purchase, you can return it and we may provide you with a refund in accordance with our change of mind policy below or a refund, exchange or repair in accordance with your statutory rights under the Australian Consumer Law.
Please print out and complete our Returns Slip and include in your package.
Returns for Change of Mind
We will offer you a refund on any full priced products purchased from our Fine Lines online store at www.finelineslingerie.com.au (website) if you change your mind provided that you satisfy all of the conditions below.
Please note that we do not offer exchanges. We instead request that items which are to be exchanged are returned for a refund and then a new order is submitted online.
Conditions for return
Please ensure the item is:
- returned within 14 days of the date of delivery with an acceptable form of proof of purchase (see “Proof of Purchase” below)
- unworn and unwashed with all original tags and stickers still attached;
- in saleable condition (ie the condition you purchased it in) and is not damaged, altered or misused in any way; and
- not an “excluded product” (see below).
If you cannot satisfy all of the above conditions then we reserve the right not to offer you a refund. Fine Lines’ decision to provide a refund in accordance with the conditions set out above will be determined in its absolute discretion.
Please choose carefully when purchasing as returns for change of mind will not be provided on sale or clearance items.
This Change of Mind Policy is in addition to your statutory rights under the Australian Consumer Law. Please refer to “Returns under the Australian Consumer Law” below if the product is damaged, faulty, unsafe, is not of acceptable quality, is not fit for the specified purpose or does not match the description given to the product.
Returns under the Australian Consumer Law
You are entitled to the benefit of statutory consumer guarantees under the Australian Consumer Law in respect of products purchased online from our website.
Consumer guarantees and remedies
If you believe there is a breach of a consumer guarantee, you may return the item to us within a reasonable period after purchase. Please refer to “Returns Process” below for more information.
We will assess the condition of the product to determine the nature of the problem.
You can choose to return the item and receive a refund or replacement if an item has a major problem.
This is when the item:
- has a problem that would have stopped someone from buying the item if they had known about it;
- is unsafe;
- is significantly different from the sample or description; or
- doesn’t do what we said it would, or what you asked for and can’t be easily fixed.
Alternatively, you can choose to keep the item and seek compensation for any drop in value caused by the failure.
If the problem is not major, we will repair the item within a reasonable time or offer you a replacement or a refund at our discretion.
Conditions for returns
Please ensure the item is returned with an acceptable form of proof of purchase (see “Proof of Purchase” below).
Please also note that we will not offer a refund, replacement or repair if:
- at the time of purchase, you were made aware of the damage or defect in the item; or
- you have damaged, misused or altered the item.
