(b) if the customer has received the product, Lancel will inform the user in due time by e-mail of the error that occurred during the process of completing his order, offering him, as an alternative, to (i) pay to Lancel, within a maximum period of 5 (five) successive days, by one of the available payment methods, the amount corresponding to the difference between the correct price of the product and the incorrect price resulting from the purchase order or (ii) cancel his order, by following the instructions in the same communication and returning the product to Lancel, at Lancel's expense, within a maximum of 14 (fourteen) successive days, by sending it to Lancel, in unchanged form, equipped with all its components and accessories (including labels and labels intact and affixed to the product), accompanied by the attached instructions/notes/manuals, original boxes and packaging and the warranty certificate and the return form, properly completed, which it will find attached to the email sent by Lancel. In the event that the user has chosen the option referred to in point (b) (ii) above, Lancel will ensure that it reimburses the customer for the payments it has made in respect of the cancelled order, including delivery costs, without undue delay and, in any event, not later than 14 days from the date of cancellation of the order, using the same means of payment, used by the user for the initial transaction.
