In case a discount code does not apply properly on the Site you agree to inform us of the malfunction. Furthermore you agree to not hold us responsible if such a case occurs over a technical error or malfunction.
A Gift Voucher is an e-mail containing a discount code, redeemable on our Site for a given currency amount and sent by us to a recipient appointed by the original buyer of the Gift Voucher.

The Socks Membership Service is the service allowing a site visitor to receive regular deliveries of socks with one purchase (paid in whole before delivery) for the duration of one calendar year, starting from the first scheduled delivery. In turn those deliveries are fulfilled by us and The Socks subcontractors.
Order and Fulfillment
Through the Site the User can specify the quantity, type, size of socks and the intervals at which the User would like the chosen socks delivered to an address of their choosing /Subscription Terms/. In turn, The Socks fulfills the first scheduled delivery immediately after the purchase. You understand that the delivery times pointed on the Site are an approximation and in no way binding. We employ the services of a subcontracted shipping company in order to fulfill all purchases. Despite our best efforts there is always risk of a shipment being lost, delayed or damaged. By using our Services you accept that risk and agree to not hold us responsible in the occurrence of a lost, delayed or damaged order when the circumstances for that occurrence were out of our control. Still in such cases you have the right to receive a replacement of your order /or one of equal value/ by informing us in good time. For more information see our Return Policy.
We will inform you accordingly for the charges being made and any upcoming deliveries. It is your sole responsibility to keep track of any upcoming payments and deliveries. We do not provide refunds for charges already being made on dispatched deliveries. For refunds on deliveries which have not yet been dispatched, we charge 5% a processing fee. The processing fee is required since the third party payment processors charge The Socks for any cancellation of an already completed transaction. All deliveries dispatch within 24 hours after receiving the payment.
Changes and Termination of Subscription Terms
You have the right to change your Membership Terms or terminate them altogether by informing us in no less than two weeks time prior to your next scheduled delivery. For changes or terminations requested within two weeks of a scheduled delivery we do not guarantee timely enforcement of the changes on our part. You agree to not hold us responsible for not receiving a scheduled delivery in the cases when your delivery address or payment methods changed during the Membership period and we were not timely informed. You will not be entitled to a replacement or refund for losses occurring due to such circumstances. Furthermore the occurrence of such losses does not constitute a termination of a Membership. A termination comes into force only by a written notice from us to you or vice versa, within the aforementioned time period.
The Socks reserves the right to terminate any Membership at our sole discretion and by informing you via e-mail.
