YOUR RIGHT TO CANCEL A PRODUCT CONTRACT
You have the right to cancel a Product Contract within 14 days without giving any reason. This right, under Section 312g in connection with Sections 355 et. seq. German Civil Code, is explained in more detail in this section.
The right to cancel a contract does not apply to bookings for Experiences. Please refer to the Experience Terms and Conditions below for more details.
To exercise the right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision to cancel the Product Contract by an unequivocal statement (e.g. letter sent by post, telefax or e-mail). You can do this by writing to us at Moët Hennessy Germany GmbH- Eminente, Seidlstraße 23, 80335 München, or by telephone: 0800 5892 681 or 069 2222 4428 or via e-mail at . Please include details of your order to help us identify it. You may use the model cancellation form (but it is not obligatory for you to do so).
To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired.
EFFECTS OF CANCELLATION
If you wish to cancel a Product Contract and you have already received the products from us, you will need to contact our Customer Care Advisors. We will arrange for the products you wish to return to be collected from you on a date agreed between you and our Customer Care Advisors, unless we agree otherwise. The collection date must be within 14 days from the day on which you notify us of the cancellation of the Product Contract. Please ensure that you pack the products so that they reach us in a good condition bearing in mind that many of our products are fragile. If you cancel a Product Contract in full, we will reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery.
For partial cancellation of a Product Contract, we will reimburse to you the payments received for the returned products. Reimbursement of the costs of delivery will be at our sole discretion.
The returned products will go through our quality control inspection process and we may make a deduction from your reimbursement for any loss or reduction in value of any products supplied to you if the loss or reduction is the result of unnecessary handling of the products by you (for example, if you have handled the products in a way which would not be permitted in a shop). You are only liable for any diminished value of products resulting from the handling beyond what is reasonably necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the products.
We will make any reimbursement due to you (less any deductions) without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which we are informed about your decision to cancel the Product Contract.
We will make any reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise. If you have paid by credit/debit card, the same card will be refunded. It is not possible to refund to a different card. You will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement.
Following expiry of your right to cancel (as described in the 'Your Right To Cancel' section of these Product Terms) we only offer refunds or exchanges where the products supplied are not of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose or do not comply with the order accepted by us. If you have received a product that is not of satisfactory quality or fit for purpose or does not comply with your order, please contact us at or by contacting our Customer Care Advisors. We may arrange to collect the relevant products free of charge from the address to which they were delivered at an agreed date. Products must be un-opened (where applicable), and otherwise in the same condition in which you received them, and securely packaged in the original packaging in which they were delivered to you. We will bear the cost of returning the defective products that are returned to us in accordance with the instructions given to you by our Customer Care Advisors.
When products are inspected upon return, if we are satisfied that they are not of satisfactory quality or fit for purpose and/or do not comply with your order, we will refund the full price of the products, together with any delivery charges. We will process the refund due to you within 14 days.
If you are seeking to exchange a defective product for another product, we will process the exchange as soon as reasonably practicable, and, the replacement product will be subject to these Product Terms. Where the replacement product is of a lesser value than the exchanged product, we will process any refund due to you within 14 days of the day you have given notice of your desire to exchange the defective product for another product and upon receipt of the returned products.
Your legal rights regarding products which are faulty or mis-described are not affected by your right of return and refund or any other provision of these Product Terms. Please note that the statutory warranty period for defective products is 2 years from delivery of the products to you.
SECTION C: GENERAL TERMS & CONDITIONS
Subject to the following provisions, our statutory liability for damages shall be limited as follows:
We shall be liable only up to the amount of damages as typically foreseeable at the time of entering into the contract in respect of damages caused by a slightly negligent breach of a material contractual obligation (i.e. a contractual duty the fulfilment of which is essential for the proper execution of the contract, the breach of which endangers the purpose of the contract and on the fulfilment of which you regularly relies);
We shall not be liable for damages caused by a slightly negligent breach of a non-material contractual obligation.
The aforesaid limitation of liability shall not apply to any mandatory statutory liability (in particular to liability under the German Product Liability Act), liability for assuming a specific guarantee or liability for damages caused by wilful misconduct or gross negligence, or any kind of wilfully or negligently caused personal injuries.
To the extent our liability is limited or excluded, the same shall apply in respect of any personal liability of our legal representatives, employees and vicarious agents.

We only provide our Site for private non-commercial use. You agree not to use our Site for any commercial, trade or business purposes.
Nothing in these Terms and Conditions will affect your statutory rights.
EVENTS OUTSIDE OUR CONTROL

TRANSFER OF RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS
Any Product Contract between you and us is binding on you and us and on our respective successors and assigns. We may transfer, assign, charge, sub-contract or otherwise dispose of your contract or any of our rights or obligations arising under it, at any time during the term of the order, provided your legal and consumer rights are not prejudiced. This will not affect your rights or obligations under these Terms and Conditions.
You may not transfer, assign, charge, sub-contract or otherwise dispose of the order, or any of your rights or obligations arising under it, unless we agree in writing.
We want to address any concerns you may have without needing a formal legal case.

You can also write to us at FAO: Moët Hennessy Germany GmbH- Eminente, Seidlstraße 23, 80335 München.

SEVERABILITY & WAIVER
Each of the provision of these Terms and Conditions operates separately. If any provision or part-provision of these Terms and Conditions is determined by any competent authority to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable to any extent, such provision or part-provision will to that extent be severed from the remaining provisions which will continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law.
No waiver by us of any breach of these Terms shall constitute a waiver of any other breach. No failure by us to exercise any remedy shall constitute a waiver of the right subsequently to exercise that or any other remedy.
These Terms and Conditions and any Product Contract concluded between us are not intended to give rights to anyone except you and us and no other person shall have any rights to enforce any of these Terms and Conditions.
These Terms and Conditions and any document expressly referred to in them represent the entire agreement between us in relation to the subject matter of any Product Contract or Experience Contract and supersede any prior agreement, understanding or arrangement between us, whether oral or in writing.
We each acknowledge that, in entering into a Product Contract, neither of us has relied on any representation, undertaking or promise given by the other or be implied from anything said or written in negotiations between us prior to such Contract except as expressly stated in these Terms and Conditions or any document expressly referred to in them. We intend to rely upon these Terms and Conditions and any document expressly referred to in them in relation to the subject matter of any Product Contract.
OUR RIGHT TO VARY THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS
We have the right to revise and amend these Terms and Conditions from time to time for any reason, including: (a) how our business operates; (b) changes in legal or regulatory requirements that we must comply with; or (c) changes in how we accept payment from you.
You will be subject to the Terms and Conditions in force at the time that you order products, unless any change to these Terms and Conditions is required to be made by law or governmental authority (in which case it will apply to orders and/or previously placed by you).
OTHER SERVICES AND SPECIAL OFFERS
From time to time we may offer other services, special offers, discounts and promotions together with services not specifically referred to in these Conditions. Such matters shall be subject, in addition to these Terms and Conditions, to specific terms and conditions relating to such matters.

LAW AND JURISDICTION
Subject to the paragraph below, these Terms and Conditions and any Product Contracts and/or Experience Contracts and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with them or their subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) will be governed by German law.
Nothing in these Terms and Conditions, including the paragraph above, affects your rights as a consumer to rely on the mandatory provisions of German law.
