At By Malene Birger, we want to offer the best experience for our customers and we therefore offer free shipping and 14 days free return to our Darling members. At the same time, sustainability is a greater focus for us, and we therefore hope to encourage our customers to shop carefully.
Unfortunately, we find that a few of our customers take advantage of the free shipping and return offer, and we therefore want to focus extra attention on purchasing behavior in order to maintain this offer to our loyal customers.
If By Malene Birger suspects that there is abuse or excessive purchasing behavior, we will reject the order and we will, on a case-by-case basis, assess whether the customer should be refused placing an order with By Malene Birger for a period or permanently.
In this context, suspicion is based on a number of objective criterias, including: A balance of purchase frequency, order and return composition, use of free delivery and return, delayed returns, alleged missing goods in shipments either outgoing or incoming, returns (ordering and returning identical items repeatedly). We emphasize that the behavior is simultaneously systematic, and not random / single.
If we recognize unacceptable purchasing behavior as described above, we reserve the right to withdraw benefits from the Darling Membership, refuse to enter into transactions with the customers in question or pause the customers in question.
The language of the contract is English.
We store all contracts made, including your offer and the order confirmation, and we recommend that you file these too, as subsequently the documents will not be accessible. However, please see “Track your order and view history”.
In order to protect our customers and maintain the security of shopping online, we may run verification checks on the data you submit when you place an offer. These checks may include address and payment verification and screening your offer to prevent fraud.
