Orrefors Kosta Boda AB is considered responsible for the data that is registered about customers and visitors at http://www.orrefors.com/. By making a purchase at orrefors.com, you accept our personal data protection policy.
Orrefors collects data about you in different ways in connection with your use of orrefors.com. The below guidelines provide a more thorough description of the type of information we collect, how we process this data and who you can contact if you have questions or comments about our guidelines.
What information do we collect?
Orrefors collects information about our users in two ways: Through so-called “cookies” (see the next section) and through registration (see below).
In general, Orrefors only requests personal and user-related information when you wish to subscribe to newsletters, enter contests, or take advantage of other services. Personal data collected by Orrefors is primarily limited to: e-mail address, name, address, gender and age, but may also include other information such as interests, etc.
In connection with purchases on its website, Orrefors requests the customer’s name, address, telephone number and e-mail address, all of which are necessary to fill the order and are used solely in connection with processing the order. The information is transmitted and stored electronically in unencrypted form for a period of 5 years.
You may voluntarily choose to register your e-mail address on a mailing list at Orrefors, so that you can receive regular news updates and other information from Orrefors. You can subscribe and unsubscribe from this service at any time, free of charge.
Orrefors does not store the names and e-mail addresses of users who have unsubscribed from services, nor of users who have participated in contests, for example.
When you visit orrefors.com for the first time, you automatically receive a cookie. A cookie is a small text file that is stored in your web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, Opera, Safari, etc), which registers you as a unique user. This cookie is identified by Orrefors’s web server when you visit orrefors.com and it registers the use of this website.
A cookie can contain text, numbers or, for example, a date, but no personal information is stored in a cookie. It is not a program and cannot contain a virus.
Most browsers enable you to delete cookies from your hard disk, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is saved. See the guide to your browser or the help function to read more information about these functions. However, you must be aware that you sometimes cannot access a website, or that some functions on a website cannot function if you do not accept cookies.
How do we protect your personal data?
It is important to Orrefors that your personal data is stored securely and confidentially. Access to all registered user data at orrefors.com is limited to trusted employees of Orrefors Kosta Boda AB and our security measures are regularly controlled to determine whether data about our users is handled correctly and in observance of the users’ rights.
However, it is not possible to guarantee 100% security for data transactions via internet. When data is sent and stored electronically, there is always a risk that others will force their way to unauthorized access to protected data before it reaches our servers. So even though Orrefors does its best to protect your personal data, we cannot secure, nor guarantee the security of some information. Thus, you send your data at your own risk.

You are responsible and liable for ensuring that the entered customer information is correct, as Orrefors performs no further validation or control of this information.
Prices and payment
The applicable price is that which is listed on the website on the day of the order for the product in question. All prices are listed in EUR and inclusive of the currently applicable 25% VAT for all countries within Europe. Sales to countries outside of Europe are not charged VAT. We reserve the right to change prices immediately without further notice. Import duties and VAT only apply to deliveries to countries outside of Europe.
A charge to cover shipping costs shall be added to every product order placed on the website. Shipping charges will be listed on the order summary, as well as in the order confirmation that is sent via e-mail.
Orrefors accepts payment with the following cards: VISA, MasterCard. The payment total will not be deducted from your account until we ship your order.
Orrefors encrypts all of your card data with the so-called SSL (Secure Socket Layer) protocol. This means that unauthorized persons cannot read your card number or other information transmitted during the transaction with DIBS.
Orrefors provides for delivery to the recipient via UPS or DHL (unless otherwise indicated). Delivery will be made to the delivery address provided by the customer.
You can expect to receive your order within 5-10 business days. As Orrefors cannot guarantee local delivery conditions, Orrefors cannot provide a 100% guarantee of when the order will be delivered to the customer’s address. In case the desired product is not in stock at the time of ordering, we will contact you to inform you of the expected date of delivery.
As a consumer, you have a right to cancel the purchase order if the entire delivery is delayed in relation to the applicable agreement.
Shipping costs are listed in the order confirmation and are to be paid by the buyer. On orders to countries outside the European Union costs relating to customs clearance and local VAT and administration fees to UPS (currently approx. EUR 15) shall be paid by the buyer upon delivery of the product(s).
Right of cancellation
You have a 14-day right of cancellation on ordered goods, calculated from the day on which they are received. If you choose to cancel a purchase, simply return the goods in the same condition and quantity as when you received them. As packaging represents a significant portion of the product’s value, the product cannot be considered returned in the same condition and quantity if the packaging is not included. The customer is liable for ensuring that the return goods are packaged suitably. Thus, you are encouraged to save the packaging until you are certain that you wish to keep the product.
Products must be returned via UPS. Return shipping can be ordered via Orrefors Customer Service and the instructions for returns that are included with the order delivery must be followed.
When returned products are received and approved, the purchase price shall be refunded to your account.
