placing an order with Alensa, the Buyer acknowledges that he has read these
terms and conditions and complies with them. By completing a purchase and by
ticking the box on your order that you have read and understand our terms and
conditions, you are verifying that you are of legal age to enter into a binding
contract and in possession of a valid prescription for the lenses you are
ordering. You hereby confirm that the information you are providing is valid and
exactly as prescribed by your eye-care professional. You also confirm that your
prescription is less than 12 months old, as required by law. You, the customer,
give your consent to our contacting your eye-care professional to verify your

every order. If the buyer requires more than one, or different invoices,
he/she will be required to make separate orders.

may not be in stock at the moment of purchase. Alensa will reserve these lenses
for the customer and immediately order them directly from the producer. Payment

for tracking his own shipment. You will receive a track and trace number

Delivery times of non-stock goods
Some contact lenses with unique parameter
combinations might not be in stock. We will reserve these for you and order them
directly from the producer. This means they will have a longer estimated
delivery time. The dispatching of special contact lenses that are not stocked
frequently depends on the delivery conditions of our suppliers and can take up
to 2-4 weeks.
When choosing and ordering your
lenses, you will be shown an indication of the expected shipping date on the
product page. This may change once you have selected the parameters for your
contact lenses. The customer is responsible for monitoring this closely
during the process of ordering.
After you have selected your specific
parameters, you will be shown a new estimated shipping time for those
parameters, as shown above. Please note that the „in stock“ info
indicates the general availability of a product from our company. It does not
necessarily mean that your unique combination will be in stock. Please only
refer to the expected shipping date revealed next to the drop-down menus for
shipping information pertaining to your specific order. Any expected delay in
delivery will be reconfirmed upon continuing to the shopping basket page, and
again in the order confirmation e-mail. The customer will be made aware if only
part of his order is in stock at the time of order confirmation, and the order
will be sent only when all products are available. Alensa has the right to
adjust availability and estimated delivery times after the order has been
Orders containing both in-stock and non-stock goods
After selecting the correct parameters for each of
your desired products and before finalizing and paying for the order, the
customer is required to pay very close attention to the estimated delivery time
for each individual product in his shopping basket.
There may be
situations where a manufacturer is experiencing operational complications and
our warehouse supply is not fully covered. The delivery time always depends
directly on the conditions of our suppliers and can take several weeks.
Non-stock items include contact lenses on order, lenses with very unusual
dioptric parameters, etc., which we do not physically stock. The dispatch times
are indicative and based on the most recent period. This indicates the expected
date of dispatch of the products from our warehouse and is part of the table
where the Buyer enters the dioptric parameters.
Preview of the dispatch
By confirming and
completing payment for the order, the customer agrees that the entire order will
be shipped only after all products are in stock. The dispatching of stock
products before the dispatching of non-stock products is possible; however, it
must be at the express request of the customer to a customer service agent. If
desired, the customer must pay an extra delivery fee (equal to regular delivery
costs) to receive the stock goods before the non-stock goods.
Problems with Delivery
DHL Express and UPS Express requires a signature upon delivery. Please
ensure someone will be present at your delivery address during business hours
Monday - Friday. Deliveries are not made on weekends.
We are not responsible for any delay in delivery
caused by our logistical partners or situations beyond our control such as
weather, holidays, etc. Please bear in mind we are providing an estimated
delivery date suggested by our delivery partners. In rare situations, some
parcels can arrive outside of the suggested timeframe. To ensure the smoothest
possible delivery, please provide your complete address information (street
name, house number, postal code and city) and a telephone number so our
logistics partners can reach you, if necessary. Once your order has been
shipped, you will receive a track and trace number where you can follow your
shipment online. Do not hesitate to contact us if you notice any problems in the
track and trace. Our customer service representatives will handle your questions
promptly and efficiently.
If a parcel cannot
be delivered for any reason, it may be held in a local post office or logistics
centre for redelivery or collection. If unclaimed, the parcel may be returned to
us or destroyed. Therefore, it is the buyer's responsibility to ensure the
parcel will be received at the given address and to communicate with the
delivery company directly with any inquiries once the parcel is in transit or
stored. Destroyed parcels will not be replaced or refunded.
Should a parcel be determined to be
lost, missing, or delivered incorrectly, we will initiate a claim with our
delivery partner(s) on your behalf. In order to initiate the claim, two
confirmations are necessary: 1.) a signed affidavit from the customer stating
that the parcel was not received, sent to us within 20 days following the
alleged delivery; 2.) verification from the delivery company that the parcel has

The return of sunglasses and prescription eyeglasses:
glasses come with a warranty of two years. The goods must not be used or
damaged. The original packaging must not be destroyed. If you would like to
return or exchange sunglasses or frames, we require that you return the complete
product, including the case, the outer box, everything inside the box, any
cleaning cloths, and any identifying stickers or tags. In other words, the
product needs to be in exactly the same condition as it was upon receipt. The
product is considered incomplete without any of these items. In case of any
missing or damaged items, a return or exchange will not be possible. Thank you
for your understanding and compliance.
Sunglasses, frames and eyeglasses
are delivered in optimal condition and have been thoroughly checked for quality
before dispatch. In the rare case that one of these should arrive damaged or
suffers from immediate defects, contact the customer service and we will review
the case in order to help you. However, complaints about damage caused by
improper use, incorrect care, or normal wear and frequent use, are not eligible
for compensation. Additional discounts or compensation cannot be given for
damage caused by the customer themselves.
Prescription lenses are
manufactured based on specific individual requirements and are, therefore, not
eligible for returns. Only the frames qualify for a possible refund. This
condition applies from the moment glasses have been paid for, regardless
of shipping status.

Price of returns
The customer bears responsibility for the shipping

note that the return procedure will take slightly longer when returning
sunglasses in their original and undamaged packaging. This is
due to the fact that the authenticity and condition of returned sunglasses must
first be thoroughly investigated and verified by our main stock department.
The buyer agrees to respect the processing
time needed for each return.
Complaints about Goods
Alensa will not accept
complaints in cases where the product has already been discarded and cannot be
investigated. Please refrain from disposing of suspected faulty products and
provide photographic evidence of any visible fault or damage. In case of
complaint, the buyer must first notify our customer service department, at which
point they will be advised how to proceed. If a product needs to be returned,
the customer should follow the procedure stated on our exchange and return policy
Complaints about TopVue products are
usually handled according to the terms of our TopVue money back
guarantee as long as all conditions have been met.
Alensa is an online seller dealing in contact
lenses and related products, not an optician or professional medical entity.
This means that it is legally not possible for us to supply trial lenses or
replace individual lenses. Alensa is only able to deal with complete packages.
Claiming an order paid for with a gift voucher
In the event of a
claim for an order paid for by a Voucher, the amount paid by the Voucher is
refunded in the form of a credit to the customer account of the Buyer who
applied the Voucher. If the purchase was paid for with a Voucher and funds
(additional payment), the Buyer can decide how they want to return the
additional payment (to the Buyer's bank account or also in the form of a credit
to the customer account).
Suspected faulty lenses or complaints about
If you have any complaints about the
quality of your lenses (redness, blurred vision, uncomfortable feeling,
dryness), we can send the lenses to the manufacturer who will then execute a
thorough quality check of the lenses in question. Please note that this process
will take up to a month, as we wait on the final result from the producer. Some
lenses may need to be sent abroad for analysis, which can also impact the length
of this process, however any kind of claim will be handled within 30 days. When
a manufacturing error is recognized, we will send you new lenses with the same
parameter combination for free. If, however, it is determined there is no
manufacturing error, we cannot refund you for the lenses or send a new pair.
If you wish to return a damaged or faulty
product, please pack it in a stiff box and send it by registered post. This is
to prevent damage during transport. Lenses that have been further damaged in
transit will not be accepted, refunded, nor replaced. In order for the
producer to perform a complete check, you will need to send the lenses and ALL
packaging, including original box and any remaining, unopened blisters printed
with the products' LOT number. If you wish to return any contact lens that
has been unpacked (or used), it should be prevented from drying out during
transport. Place the lens in a case with solution and close it firmly. As each
return case is unique, we advise that you to contact our customer service help
desk beforehand to stipulate the exact details of the return (how many lenses
will be returned, was the package opened or unopened, will the box be included
in the return, communication of the LOT number, ...) at firstname.lastname@example.org. The item(s) you
wish to return should be accompanied by a letter describing the product’s
fault and the expected result (a refund by the producer or replacement lenses).
Please be aware when making a claim regarding possible faulty lenses,
that you will be asked to provide a valid prescription.
Although there is no need to present your prescription when purchasing lenses
online, you must always be in possession of a valid prescription no older than
one year old. When a quality check is performed, this prescription is required
to verify whether the dioptres of the lenses you've purchased match your actual
prescription or not.
If a defect appears within six months of receipt and
it has been clearly identified as being a genuine defect, the goods shall be
deemed to have been defective upon receipt. The buyer is entitled to exercise
the right to claim a defect within 24 months of receipt.
due to having received wrong parameters
Always contact the customer service immediately if you see you have received the
wrong parameters, preferably before opening any of your boxes. In case we have
sent you the wrong parameters, due to an error of our own, you will be refunded
or sent new lenses at no additional cost. However, in case you, the customer,
have made a mistake during the ordering process, and the lenses you have ordered
don't match the prescribed parameters from your optometrist, Alensa can only
replace or refund them if they are unopened and haven't been used. You are
required to be in possession of an official prescription no older than 1 year
old. Please pay close attention while ordering as to not input the wrong values.
In case of dispute, Alensa has the right to ask for your prescription and verify
it with your actual order.
Complaints about having received the wrong
product can only be made within 30 days after the delivery date of that
product. Complaints made later than 30 days after having received the
product will no longer be accepted. We recommend you to therefore always check
your product immediately upon receipt and contact us as soon as possible if a
mistake has been made.
Dissatisfaction with a new brand of lenses
Switching to a new brand of contact lenses, even if
recommended by a specialist, carries a risk that this new brand may not fit the
wearer. The seller is not liable for any medical complications or discomfort
that can result from wearing an unprescribed brand of lenses. Always consult
with your ophthalmologist or optician before attempting new lenses. Each user
can have a different experience with the same type of lenses. Alensa does not
take responsibility for any problems experienced with lenses bought without
consulting an optician or doctor beforehand. Customers are always expected to be
in possession of a valid prescription and to purchase only the lenses that have
been prescribed by their eye-care professional, without deviation. This also
applies to lens solutions, eye drops and sprays.
We only exchange or refund contact lenses or
other products if the packaging is unopened and undamaged.
Dissatisfaction with the effect of coloured lenses
The ultimate effect of wearing coloured lenses is
very subjective and may vary according to numerous conditions and influences.
First, the effect will be influenced by the pigmentation of your eyes. Second,
it can be influenced by external factors, such as light conditions, make-up and
clothing choices. Furthermore, the type of coloured lenses (enhancing or opaque)
may produce a different result on the coverage of your natural eye colour.
Because it is impossible to predict the result for each individual, we do not
provide refunds on coloured lenses on the basis of dissatisfaction with
appearance. The customer agrees, upon purchase, that coloured lenses are
non-refundable, unless a manufacturing error or defect is recognised by the
Complaints about sunglasses, frames and

Photos on the website are meant to illustrate a
real version of the products on offer but are not photos of the exact product
the customer will receive. Product photos that display item numbers, expiration
dates, etc. will, when ordered, have different numbers unique to your version of
the product. Some of our products are also produced in several facilities across
different locations, all owned by the same original producer. A product photo
may show location differences from the product you received. These kinds of
location-dependant/time-dependant/unique identification differences in no way
mean that the product you've received is somehow not what it should be. Claims
based on these kinds of logical, self-evident print differences between website
photos and received products will not be accepted.
Alternative Dispute Resolution
The consumer has the right to demand Alternative
Dispute Resolution if they are not satisfied with the result of a complaint or
if they believe that the seller violated their consumer rights. They can contact
the seller by email on email@example.com. If the seller
refuses to conduct the correction or does not reply to the query within a 30-day
period, the consumer has the right to submit a complaint to an Alternative
Dispute Resolution entity (ADR entity), legally bound by European Union law
(S.I. no. 343 of 2015). The complaint can be submitted as detailed in European
Union law (S.I. no. 343 of 2015).
The definition of ‘consumer’ for the
purposes of Alternative Dispute Resolution covers natural persons who are acting
outside their trade, business, craft or profession. However, if the contract is
concluded for purposes partly within and partly outside the person’s trade
(dual purpose contracts) and the trade purpose is so limited as not to be
predominant in the overall context of the supply, that person should also be
considered as a consumer. Alternative Dispute Resolution shall apply to
procedures for the out-of-court resolution of disputes concerning contractual
obligations stemming from sales contracts or service contracts between a trader
and a consumer. Alternative Dispute Resolution shall apply to long-distance
purchase contracts only. Alternative Dispute Resolution shall not apply to
disputes where the value of the claim does not exceed €20. The ADR entity can
apply a nominal fee to the consumer for filing the complaint which cannot exceed
€5 including VAT.

contract, if the Buyer observes the conditions above, he will receive a full
refund including the original shipping costs. The Buyer shall bear only the

decide in what form they want to return the top-up (to the Buyer's bank account
or also in the form of a credit to the customer account).
