Customer is to write the given RAN on the return tag attached to the item(s) and on the copy of the invoice which is to be put in the box. Customer is kindly invited to accurately follow the return instructions.

- Color/size exchange:
Items can be exchanged for the same model in a different size or color, if available. Exchange with different items will not be accepted. The new exchanged item can be returned following the same procedure.
