Where a claim of defect or damage is made the Goods shall be returned by the Customer to Lavinia Stamps. The Customer shall be entitled to a full refund (including delivery costs) plus any return postal charges if the Goods are in fact defective.
In such an eventuality the goods must be returned by the Customer and should be adequately insured during the return journey.
