The Buyer is responsible for verifying the state of the parcel and its content on delivery with the deliveryman. If the parcel was dropped directly into the mailbox and is damaged, the Customer must go to his post office and institute a damage claim without opening the parcel. If that damage claim is not made the same day the parcel is delivered, the post office might refuse the Customer’s claim, and hence Galinea will not agree to send any replacements for the damaged parcel.

The amount paid by the Buyer for the products still to be delivered will be refunded within thirty (30) days following the cancellation request of the Buyer, excluding any other compensation. The Buyer shall make the application by e-mail at info@Galinea.com. Galinea will decline all responsibility in the event of delivery delays, product loss, strikes, fire (non-exhaustive list).
10.3. Characteristic of delivery (Switzerland)

In case of absence, the Buyer receives a calling card and may request via internet redelivery of the package the next day. In case of return of the parcel to the logistic partner due to « Does not live at the address indicated » and subject to receipt of goods in perfect condition, Galinea will issue a coupon (equal to the total order, shipping deducted) which will be credited to the credit card of the Buyer. Buyer will then place his order having preciously corrected his delivery address.

The products are delivered to the address given by the Buyer on the order form. A notice of receipt shall be signed by the Buyer. In case of absence, the Buyer receives a transit advice note from the deliveryman which allows him to withdraw the products ordered at the nearest post-office for up to fifteen days. In the case of the parcel being unclaimed at the Post Office within the given time and subsequently returned to Galinea, the parcel can be reshipped on prior payment of the corresponding shipment costs. In case of returns by the Post Office with the mention “Not Known at this Address”, and if the products are in perfect condition for resale, Galinea will reimburse the Customer by credit card refund (total order, minus total shipping fees, whether originally paid by Galinea or by the Buyer). Galinea does not reimburse duties and taxes. The Buyer may then place another order using the correct address.
