Delivery times may vary depending on where the order is to be delivered. Occasional delays may occur during peak periods or in the case of unexpected events. At the latest, orders will be delivered within a thirty day window from placing the order. In the unlikely event that your delivery time exceeds 30 days, you may cancel your order.
Before you place your order, you will be informed of the expected delivery details. Shipping fees will be displayed at the checkout.
If you have given us your email address, you will receive a confirmation with your expected delivery details.
If your order does not arrive by the scheduled date, please contact our Customer Service team here .5. WITHDRAWAL OF ORDER
You have the right to cancel or return your purchases within a period of 14 calendar days after the day of delivery of the goods, which means that you are allowed to change your mind and send back the goods you have received, without any obligations from your side, apart from the return shipping fees. Return cost is not applicable for countries: Germany, Finland, France and United Kingdom.
If you have been charged for the items, you will receive a refund which will include COS standard delivery costs and exclude the cost of the return of the items, should such a return cost have been generated (40SEK/40DKK/€4).
If you choose to keep certain items and only partially cancel your order, the delivery cost will not be refunded.
If you wish to cancel or return your order, please provide us with notice in writing either by post, preferably by using the pre-printed return form in your parcel, or via email to our Customer Service team. You can also fill in and submit the standard form issued by your local Consumer Rights Authority. In each case, it must be sent within the 14 day period as outlined in section 5.1 above. After this, you then have an additional 14 day period to return the items to us as set out in section 6 (Returns) below. We will then provide a refund, attempting to use the same method that you used to make the payment (or, if the items have not yet been paid for, reflect the return of the items in your account balance). We will do this as soon as possible! At the latest, the refund will be given within 14 days of receiving your notice of cancellation, as long as we have received the items or evidence of you having sent them back. Another payment method may be used for the refund, provided that you consent to such change.
This will not generate any additional charges.
If the item you have received is faulty, please notify our Customer Service team as soon as possible and return the item in accordance with section 6 (Returns) below. For any items that we do find to be faulty, we will always provide a full refund. The provisions outlined herein do not limit any applicable statutory rights.6. RETURNS
COS guarantees either a full refund or to replace any items in accordance with section 5 (Withdrawal of Order). All we ask is for you to treat the product and its packaging with care - please return items undamaged and unused, with all COS labels and tags intact. This means that the items should not have been damaged, soiled, washed, altered or worn (other than to try the item on).
All shoes should be tried on a carpeted surface before wear. Shoes should always be returned in the same box they were delivered, and the shoe box must be protected and put inside a solid cardboard box, preferably the original COS packaging. Shoes returned without the box may not be fully refunded.
For hygienic reasons underwear briefs, pierced jewellery, make-up and skincare products cannot be returned or exchanged (unless they are faulty). Swimwear briefs and swimsuits can only be returned or exchanged if the sanitary liner strip is intact.
All our parcels contain a pre-printed return form for you to use if you decide to return any items. When we have approved your returned item, the return cost will be deducted from your refund. Return postage is not applicable for countries: Germany, Finland and United Kingdom. Please remember that financial responsibility for the return is yours until it reaches us. All items returned should include the completed returns note with an order reference number and your contact details. Unidentified returns may not be eligible for a refund. For faulty items COS will make a full refund to you as soon as possible and at the latest within 14 days of receiving your notice of cancellation, provided we have received the items or evidence of you having sent back the items.
Peel off the pre-paid returns label and attach to the outside of the parcel, making sure that you cover the original address label. Please note that for returns with the pre-paid label, parcel dimensions should not exceed 46 x 45 x 61cm, and a maximum weight of 2kg, so we suggest that you use the original packaging if possible.
Please hand the parcel in at your collection point or post office. You are liable for damage to the garments until we receive them at our warehouse, so in case of a dispute, we recommend that you keep the collection point receipt as proof of postage.
You will find more detailed information on our returns process on the delivery note and in our Customer Service section on www.cosstores.com
Drop off your items to be returned at a post office or pick-up point location, as outlined in 5.2 above.7. PAYMENT METHODS
You can pay for your goods in various ways as set out below.
Credit card or debit card
You can enter your payment details at the time that you place your order using a valid credit or debit card (VISA or Mastercard). The applicable amount will be immediately reserved on your card but will not be debited until the goods have been dispatched. COS reserves the right to check the validity of the credit or debit card, its credit status in relation to the order value and whether the address data of the purchaser is correct. We may refuse orders depending on the result of these checks.
When paying by PayPal, COS reserves the right to check the validity of the PayPal account, that there are enough funds to cover the purchase sum and validate the billing address details of the purchaser. COS reserves the right to deny any purchase. Your PayPal account will only be debited after your order has been dispatched from the warehouse. The currency used is Euro (€) for all countries except for Sweden (SEK), Denmark (DKK) and the UK (British pound/£). VAT is included in all our prices and will be updated on the online store when you select your shipping country.
We offer open invoice in cooperation with Arvato payment solutions GmbH. Payment terms are 14 days and a fee of 1 EUR will apply when using the invoice as a payment method. Delivery will be made to the customer's address.
To be able to pay with the invoice you need to be 18 years or older, be registered in Germany or Austria, and be approved in the credit evaluation which will take place at order confirmation. If you choose payment with invoice the resulting claim will be sold and assigned on grounds of a revolving Factoring-Contract to Arvato payment solutions GmbH, Gütersloher Str.123 in D-33415 Verl.
The invoice will be sent to your registered email address. If the payment is delayed, Arvato payment solutions GmbH will send a payment reminder where a legal reminder fee of 5,90 € will apply. If the payment is not made, the invoice will be transferred to debt collection and legal debt collections fees will apply in accordance to the appropriate national statuary rule (In Germany: Einführungsgesetz zum Rechtsdienstleistungsgesetz” – RDGEG – in connection with “Rechtsanwaltsvergütungsgesetz” – RVG – analog; in Austria: Inkassohöchstsätze-Verordnung). COS reserves the right to refuse delivery and to review the customer’s creditworthiness.

COS is not responsible for indirect losses which are a side effect of the main loss or damage, for example loss of profits or loss of opportunity; or for failure to deliver the goods or to meet any of our other obligations under these Terms where such failure is due to an event that is beyond our reasonable control, which includes but is not limited to fire, flood, storm, riot, civil disturbance, war, nuclear accident and terrorist activity.8.4
Our maximum liability to you for any loss or damage arising in connection with your order on the COS website shall be limited to the total price of your order.9. COLOURS

If there are colour differences between the colours shown on the website on your computer and the actual colours of the garments, this may be due to the colour reproduction on your computer.10.
