7.3. Design by Julia has the right to refuse returned goods if they do not meet our terms (see terms 5.1 and 5.2 above). If the item is deemed unfit for return, Design by Julia will notify you the return has been rejected and this decision is final. You then have the following options:

  • to have the item shipped back to you at your own cost

  • to have the item recycled or disposed of.

7.4. You will have 14 days to advise what course of action you would like us to take. After that, we will recycle your item.
