If delivery or collection is delayed through your unreasonable refusal to accept delivery or if you do not (within two weeks of our first attempt to deliver the product to you) accept delivery or collect the product from the carrier, then we may (without affecting any other right or remedy available to us) do either or both of the following:
a) charge you for our reasonable storage fee and other costs reasonably incurred by us;

When purchasing Rewards on the Site, you are entitled to a 14-day withdrawal period in accordance with applicable consumer protection legislation. This means that you have the right to cancel any purchase by notifying us accordingly within 14 days of you or your representative receiving the product ordered (the withdrawal period). The right of withdrawal does not apply to: (a) products that are custom made, tailored or personalized in some other way; (b) products that have been opened and thus cannot be withdrawn due to health or hygienic reasons (such as underwear, cosmetics, swimwear, hair dryers and similar products, electric razors, electric toothbrushes, scales, heating pads and foot baths); (c) a product that quickly deteriorates or has a limited lifespan; (d) sound and movie recordings (such as a CD) or computer software that has been opened; or (e) digital content that is delivered through a non-physical media (such as voucher codes, computer software, programs, games, music, videos or texts that are delivered through download, streaming or email).
Please send us a clear message to our customer service before the period of withdrawal expires if you wish to withdraw a purchase. You must provide your name, address and other relevant information, such as order number and e-mail address in the message. You may also use the standard form for the right of withdrawal provided by the Swedish Consumer Agency (Sw. Konsumentverket), but it is not obligatory.
In order for you to use your right of withdrawal in time, it will be sufficient for you to send us a message to that effect before the withdrawal period expires.
If you use your right of withdrawal, you must bear the costs for returning the Reward. Furthermore, you are responsible for the condition of Reward after you received it and during the return shipping. We recommend that Reward is sent in return well packaged, in good condition and in its original box and/or packaging. The product shall be returned within 14 days from the date when we received your notification informing us that you want to exercise your right of withdrawal.
For orders cancelled by using your right of withdrawal, you will receive a refund, excluding the shipping costs paid by you. We are entitled to deduct an amount from the amount to be refunded that corresponds to the loss of value of the product compared to the original value, if and to the extent the loss of value is due to you handling the product other than what is necessary to determine its function or characteristics. As stated in section 4.5 above, expired points will not be returned.
For the part of your purchase paid with points, you will receive a voucher for the same amount of points. The voucher can be used for your next purchase in Scandic Friends Shop. The voucher has the same validity as the points used for the purchase. Note that your points won’t be refunded to your account. The part of your purchase paid with cash will be refunded to your bank account.
We will refund the amount as soon as possible, but no later than within 14 days of the date when we received your notification of withdrawal. However, we will delay the refund until we have received the product or you have provided proof that the product has been returned, e.g. by a certificate of delivery. Refunds will be made by the same payment method you chose unless otherwise agreed.
If an item does not live up to expectations due to a defect, you have the right to make a complaint within three years from the date you received the Reward.
