(a) Right to Cancel
You have the right to cancel the contract created by our written order confirmation without giving any reason fourteen (14) days from the day on which you acquire, or someone you nominate (other than the carrier) acquires, physical possession of the products in your order. If you are a customer based in the European Union or the European Economic Area and have made a purchase via the Sales Channels, this is considered to be your statutory right to withdraw from the contract. To meet the withdrawal deadline, it is sufficient for you to withdraw before the withdrawal period has expired.
To cancel the contract and return your product(s), you can contact our Client Relations Center and follow the instructions that will be given to you, or you can send us in writing an unequivocal statement such as a letter or e-mail to: Montblanc, firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you may cancel using the Model Cancellation Form, but it is not obligatory.
(b) Return Process
Products that have been purchased through the Sales Channels may only be returned to our Montblanc e-boutique distribution center at the address of our Returns Department, as provided in our FAQs section through our Client Relations Center, or if available to selected Montblanc retail boutiques, in accordance with these Conditions of Sale.

(c) Condition of Returned Products
We will verify that the returned product satisfies the conditions of the Returns Policy and, if so, then proceed with the applicable refund.
Our products must be returned in a new and unused state, in perfect condition, with all protective materials in place and tags and stickers attached to them (if applicable), as well as with the original Montblanc box and delivery package, including all accessories and documents. For example, timepiece bracelets that have been adjusted at your request must be returned with the exact same number of links as in the original delivery package. We reserve our right not to accept any return if the product shows signs of wear, or has been used or altered from its original condition in any way or, as an alternative, may reduce the amount of any applicable refund accordingly.
If you have received free items as part of your order, they must be returned with the products.
All returns will be subject to strict Quality Control (“QC”) by us to ensure that the returned products satisfy these requirements. If the products do not meet QC standards, we will refuse the return, and the products will be returned to you. If the returned product satisfies QC, we will proceed with the applicable refund.
Failure to comply with these Conditions of Sale will entitle us to refuse the returned product and send it back to you, at your own cost.
(d) Products you cannot return
Orders for products that have been personalized in any way or otherwise made for you with bespoke specifications cannot be cancelled and such products cannot be returned to us refund. This includes, without limitation, products that have been engraved or embossed. Writing instruments that have been filled with ink, as well as bottles and refills that have been opened, cannot be returned to us.
You may return a product purchased through the Sales Channels for refund, provided that the return complies with these Conditions of Sale, in particular with (a) Right to Cancel and (b) Return Process above.
Only the buyer will be entitled to receive a refund of the purchase price. In no event will a person who has received the product as a gift (i.e. a “Gift Recipient”) be entitled to receive a refund. If you are a Gift Recipient and wish to return a product, please contact the Client Relations Center to discuss your options.
If the return complies with these Conditions of Sale, we will use commercially reasonable endeavours to refund the purchase price to the buyer using the same means of payment as used by the buyer for the initial transaction within fourteen (14) days after receipt of the returned item by the Montblanc e-boutique distribution center. Except for delivery of a defective product by us, initial shipping charges will not be refunded.
