PARTNER is the first point of contact to answer customer questions.
Customers should always contact PARTNER first if they want to return something. For returns of Ecowings products, PARTNER will provide the address of Ecowings. PARTNER will inform Ecowings as soon as such a situation arises.
Returns after the customer has waived the purchase: Based on the law, the customer is entitled to a cooling-off period of at least 14 days. If the customer cancels the purchase within this period, the customer must return the order in its original condition. Ecowings will inform PARTNER about this after receipt of the order in its original condition. PARTNER refunds the amount to the customer (including shipping costs if it concerns the entire order), and Ecowings credits/refunds the invoice to PARTNER.
Returns due to an error in the ordering process: In case it can be demonstrated that the return shipment is the result of an error at PARTNER and/or Ecowings, the entire amount of the invoice (including shipping costs) will be refunded to the customer. Ecowings credits/refunds the invoice to PARTNER (incl. shipping costs).
Returns due to a defective product: In the event that the customer reports that the product is defective, the cause will be examined on a case-by-case basis and how to deal with it. Some example situations:
Damaged by post – complaint handling by Ecowings at Post.nl – customer gets a new product or money back.
Claim based on expected lifespan / warranty – complaint handling by Ecowings – if justified, customer gets a new product or money back.
Damaged by wrong customer product will not be taken back .
