We are committed to providing a high standard of service to all our customers and treating them fairly. There may be times when you don’t feel we've lived up to this. If this happens, we want to hear from you. Letting us know when you are unhappy with the service you experience gives us the opportunity to put matters right and to improve our service in the future for everybody. Our dedicated staff are committed to working with you on your complaint and to resolving it to your satisfaction. You can share your concerns with them by phone, by letter or e-mail as shown below:
Address: The Complaints Team, Redcats (Brands) Limited, 2 Holdsworth Street, Bradford, West Yorkshire, BD1 4AH.
Telephone: 033 0303 0199 - 9am-5pm Monday-Friday.
For complaints relating to your Style Account, please telephone our customer care team on the number given in the Style Account section below. If you have a problem with your agreement, please try to resolve it with us in the first instance. If you are not happy with the way in which we handled your complaint or the result, you may be able to complain to the Financial Ombudsman Service, however, you must raise any complaint with us first. The Financial Ombudsman Service can be contacted by post at the Financial Ombudsman Service, Exchange Tower, London E14 9SR or by telephone on 0800 023 4567 or 0300 123 9123 or at www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk.
In relation to complaints regarding our retail products and services (e.g. product quality, delivery), under the Alternative Dispute Resolution for Consumer Disputes (Competent Authorities and Information) Regulations 2015, if we cannot resolve a complaint using our internal complaints procedure, we must inform you: (i) that the matter cannot be settled, (ii) the name and website address of a relevant provider of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) services, and (iii) whether we (La Redoute) are obliged to or prepared to make use of the relevant ADR provider. We are not obliged to use an ADR provider and, as we receive few complaints that are not ultimately resolved, we have decided not to pay to subscribe to an ADR scheme at this stage. We do, however, have a “Primary Authority” arrangement with West Yorkshire Trading Standards and customers can seek advice and information about their rights from Citizens Advice: www.citizensadvice.org.uk.
We aim to maintain our prices throughout the season, unless they are subject to any special discount or merchandise offers, which we may, from time to time, offer you. All our prices, where applicable include VAT or Insurance Premium Tax at the current rate. If these rates, or any other tax, charge or levy is introduced by the Government, then we reserve the right to alter our prices at any time. The new price will be shown on the merchandise page on the website, your order confirmation email and delivery note.
Our contract with you
Your order is only considered accepted (and a contract formed between us) when we dispatch the goods to you. We will not be held wholly or partly responsible for any circumstances beyond our reasonable control, which cause the delay or failure to deliver the merchandise or services, or to comply with any other obligation. We charge £3.99 for the packing and standard delivery of our merchandise. This charge remains the same whatever the size of your order. When merchandise is in our warehouse and is in stock we deliver within 3-5 working days of approving your order. If delivery is likely to be longer, we will give you a likely delivery date. If, for example, an item is unavailable, we may send an alternative, which you can return free of charge, if it is unsuitable. Next day delivery is an additional service provided under a separate contract. Please refer to the main catalogue or the delivery information online for details of availability and charges and to the section headed "Returning goods to us" below for details of your rights to cancel this service. We reserve the right to accept in part or full, or decline, any order or request for credit.
Your use of the products
All our products are for domestic use only. If you intend to use them for business, then you must check that they are suitable. You may also invalidate any warranty if the products are used for business purposes.
Using the product for domestic purposes: We will be responsible for any loss that you suffer as a result of a product’s failure, provided the reason for its failure was reasonably foreseeable by both you and us when the contract was completed.
Using the product for business purposes: We will not be responsible for any economic loss including, but not limited to, loss of profit, revenue, contracts, savings, loss of data, goodwill or reputation. Our maximum liability will be limited to the replacement value of the product.
Whether products have been used for domestic or business purposes, La Redoute does not, by law, limit or exclude its liability for death or personal injury caused by negligence, breach of duty, gross negligence or wilful misconduct. This clause does not affect the rights given to you by law as a consumer.
Returning merchandise to us
We provide a free exchanges and returns service so you can return items without paying return postage. You have 14 days from receipt of your order to return any item. Items must be returned in original condition. Once we receive items, we refund the cost of those items using the method you used to pay. The standard delivery or Next Day Delivery P&P charge you paid (if any) will not be refunded but you will not pay return postage.
We recommend you use the above free returns service where we manage the safe return once you hand items to your local Hermes courier but you also have the right to return items under The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 by notifying us that you wish to cancel within 14 days following delivery. If you opt to cancel under the Regulations, you must arrange and pay for the return of items and take care to ensure returned items are received undamaged. Once we receive items, we will refund the cost of those items using the method you used to pay. If you cancel an entire order transaction and the order was delivered by standard delivery (rather than Next Day Delivery), we will also refund the £3.99 P&P charge you paid (if any) but you will have paid return postage. If you cancel an entire order transaction delivered by Next Day Delivery, the terms are slightly different. Next Day Delivery is an additional service provided under a separate contract and can only be cancelled under the above Regulations by giving notice of cancellation in writing or another durable medium up to the point at which we start to provide that additional service. If, after choosing and paying for Next Day Delivery, you cancel an entire order transaction under the Regulations, we will only refund the £3.99 standard delivery charge and not the additional £1.99 charge for Next Day Delivery.
Contact details for cancelling orders under the Regulations are as follows: Returns Dept, La Redoute, 2 Navigation Walk, Bridge Street, Wakefield, West Yorkshire, WF1 5RH; or email@example.com. Further information in relation to cancelling under the Regulations can be found below.
The La Redoute Style Account
Arrears Terms – Should you fail at any time to keep your account up to date and in accordance with the terms and conditions of trading, we reserve the right to charge for our costs which will not exceed £12.00 per event in respect of any of the following: despatch of any reminder letter or other communication, 'refer to drawer' cheques or other failure to honour any method of payment, or to transfer your account to a debt collection department or agency. We also reserve the right to issue you with a default notice and demand full repayment of the whole outstanding balance in the event of any breach of the terms and conditions of trading occurring in the conduct of your account.
Order Codes tell us which promotion or special offer you are entitled to claim with your order. The Order Code is for you personally, and remains the property of the company at all times. Unless stated otherwise in the Order Code details for the relevant offer, Order Codes can only be used once and discounts are not valid on La Redoute's Sale items, Invité items or Web Exclusives, nor Vertbaudet products and certain internet only products indicated online. If you place more than one order using the same Order Code, your first order only will be accepted. We reserve the right to restrict or refuse orders or substitute gifts where necessary. We reserve the right to take action to recover merchandise which has been delivered incorrectly by us following any abuse of Order Code and/or to adjust your account with us.
Trading Area and VAT
Our merchandise (except certain stated items) is for sale within the UK (including Northern Ireland), Channel Islands, the Isle of Man and BFPO Germany. All prices include VAT unless the product is exempt. However, where VAT is chargeable or becomes chargeable (previously exempt products may become chargeable to VAT from time to time), we reserve the right to amend our prices to reflect any changes in VAT which may occur from time to time (e.g. an exempt product may become chargeable; the rate of VAT chargeable on a product may change). The new price will be shown on the product page on the site, on your order confirmation email and on your delivery note. No discount will be given on products where VAT is not chargeable, nor accountable to HM Customs & Excise or similar authority within the European Union.
