DELIVERY & RETURNS POLICY

When you buy from the Porsche Design Online Shop ([porsche-design.com.sa]) we want you to be happy with your purchases. However, we know occasionally the need to return a product may arise. You have the right to request withdrawal from the sale contract with SAMACO (the “Vendor”) within five (5) days from the date on which you received the products purchased from the Porsche Design Online Shop.

You can request the return and refund by online submission to the Vendor of the Return Form found in the Customer Care area, completed in its entirety; in this instance, the Vendor will send you an email confirming they have received your return request and the address to which the returns must be sent. The products to be returned must be handed over to the courier within five (5) days of the date you received the products purchased on the Porsche Design Online Shop. In case you withdraw from the sale contract, you are not allowed to ask the replacement of the initially purchased item with another item unless the corresponding right is explicitly provided by the Vendor.

The right to request return is excluded in the event you purchased customized or personalized products, or sealed items that were opened after delivery and that cannot be returned for health or hygiene reasons.

  1. Conditions for exercising the right to request withdraw

The right to request withdrawal from the sale contract shall be deemed correctly executed if the following conditions have been fully met:
