Cancellation of orders
Kinship may cancel an order if it is not possible to deliver the ordered product. You will be informed if such a situation arises and any payment or reservation made will be returned/cancelled.
When you order a product from Kinship, you will receive a receipt by email to show your order has been received. However, you enter into a binding sales contract only when you have received an order confirmation/sales receipt from us.
If for any reason, you are not satisfied with your order, you may exercise your right to return the products, by contacting Kinship Customer Service within 14 working days from the date on which you received the products purchased on kinship-collective.com. To cancel the contract and return the products you shall use the return form available from our Customer Services.
We expect you to return the product as soon as possible after you have given cancellation notice and no later than 14 days after you have changed your mind.
To exercise the right to cancel you must:
- notify Kinship Customer Services within 14 days of the date you received the parcel
- include a completed copy of the Kinship Return Form with the products
- pack the products unused, unwashed, and not damaged in their original packaging, and in no more than one parcel
- return the complete product to Kinship unless otherwise specified by our Customer Services (eg, multi-pack products must be returned with all items included)
- we recommend that the products are returned by using the same courier/delivery service that delivered the products to you (DPD or DHL). You are responsible for the package/products until received by Kinship. We also recommend keeping the receipt from the courier and if applicable the track and trace number
Kinship must receive the goods within 30 working days of the date you received the parcel.
When we receive the product(s), we will check them and you will be refunded the amount you paid to us upon purchase, including the original delivery fee. The amount is always transferred to the same payment method used for the purchase.
You may lose your purchase amount, in whole or in part. This happens if the product is impaired or damaged because:

- you have not followed the restrictions of the cancellation rights outlined above
Kinship will refund the amount paid for the products without undue delay, and no later than 14 days from the date Kinship received the customer notification of the cancellation. However, Kinship may delay the repayment until we have received the product or the customer has provided proof that the product has been returned (eg certificate of delivery).
Delivery Partners: DHL/DPD
Returned products may be shipped by the package delivery company DHL or DPD, as advised by Kinship, using the procedures outlined in the Kinship Help Topics. If you use DHL or DPD, Kinship will pay the shipping costs in case of defective items and to track the package at any time.
If you decide to use a different package delivery company, any costs for shipping the products will be charged to you, and you will be responsible for any loss or damage to the products.
Your purchase is covered by the Sale of Goods Act, including rules regarding defects. This means that you can either have a faulty product repaired or replaced, or receive a full refund in price, depending on the specific situation.
