As the expenses and risks relating to returns are the responsibility of the Customer, products purchased from the e-Dumas store shall be returned by the service colissimo suivi (parcel service with tracking) offered by La Poste.
It is essential to follow the procedure set forth below for all RETURNS or EXCHANGES of products and to use the “e-Dumas returns form” which is inside your parcel.

- Send the parcel by colissimo with the parcel tracking service within ten business days as from the date when the Return Number is allocated.
After receipt and verification of the conformity of the returned product (new product, unused, in its original packaging), we will reimburse you on the bank/credit card used for payment.
The Customer is informed that all returns shall be subject to e-Dumas’ prior agreement and that articles which are damaged, soiled, returned incomplete or without a Return Number are not able to be exchanged and/or reimbursed. Only the price of the returned article(s) shall be reimbursed.
In the case that the customer doesn’t want to keep an item delivered in conformity of its primary order, the return freight cost, the expedition freight cost and the custom cost or taxes or other would be at its charge.
