§ 4 Delivery
At Challenge Denmark we always endeavor to ship your order the same day as we register your payment as far as possible. You can always see the expected delivery time of the product, subject to the shipping company’s successful day-to-day delivery. The product with the longest anticipated delivery time in an order is the delivery time we strive to meet. If you want faster delivery on some items than others on a single order, separate orders and related payments should be made for shipping. As a rule, orders are not shipped multiple times without the payment of an additional invoice on shipping, the same prices as our other orders. If you wish to divide the order’s shipment, the right to withholding the remaining consignments is reserved until payment of additional freight is received.
§ 5 Receipt
Once you have received your items, compare these with the order confirmation. We strongly encourage the goods / package to be checked for shipping injuries before receipt of receipt, and in the event of damage to a product, objections are made to the transport company on the spot. The sooner you advertise, the easier it is for you to prove that it is a transport damage and not an injury that has occurred in your own custody.
§ 6 Defective goods / Warranty
If you have received any defective or defective items, please contact Challenge Denmark. Challenge Denmark covers delivery costs for defective goods when shipped via Post Danmark or freight forwarder on condition that it is us who are in charge of the shipper request or send paid mail receipt. We will, of course, exchange and ship a new item immediately after we have received the defective item, unless otherwise agreed. The rules of the buyer’s deficiency rules may apply to goods purchases. When you shop with us as a consumer, you have 24 months of warranty. This means that you can either get the item repaired, exchanged, the money back or refusal in the price, depending on the specific situation. It is a requirement that the complaint is justified and that the defect has not arisen as a result of improper use of the product or other damaging behavior. You must advertise within “reasonable time” after you have discovered the defect of the item. If you advertise within two months after the defect has been discovered, the complaint will always be timely. If your claim is warranted, we will refund your (reasonable) shipping costs.

§ 7 Returns / Cancellation
1) As a consumer, you have 14 days of withdrawal when you shop with us, with the exception of bought tickets or entries. The cancellation period expires 14 days after the day you received your item or you receive the last item in physical possession when it comes to an agreement on multiple items ordered in one order and delivered individually. You must, within 14 days of receipt, inform us that you wish to withdraw your purchase. The notification must be given by contacting us at email@example.com, or by using the standard cancellation form. In your notice, please let us know clearly that you wish to exercise your right of withdrawal. You can not regret just refusing the receipt of the item without giving us a clear notice of this. This will shorten the processing time if our own return form has been completed, which is sent to the order confirmation, or can be found in PDF HERE. If the order has not yet been shipped from us by cancellation, the form is not required. After our receipt of the cancellation form, we must have received the item within 14 days. Likewise, we return the money within 14 days of withdrawal unless we have not been able to receive and control the product’s condition and have reason to expect a depreciation. It is always advisable to send goods back to us as soon as possible after withdrawal, and to complete the cancellation form sufficiently to avoid any delay in the refund. Responsibility for the product’s status is the responsibility of the customer, from receipt to final return to Challenge Denmark, which includes damages and loss during return.
You must return your order to us without unnecessary delay and no later than 14 days after you have notified us that you wish to cancel your purchase. You must pay the direct costs for the return of the goods. You bear the risk of the item from the time of delivery. Lack of original packaging may be a loss of value, so to be sure to receive all the money back, it is recommended that the item be returned in original packaging.

• Delivery of goods that may be expected to deteriorate or outdate quickly,
• Delivery of sealed goods which, for reasons of health or hygiene, are not suitable for return and where the seal has been broken after delivery,

In other words, you can try the product in the same way as if you tried it in a physical store, but you should not take it for real use. If the item has been tested in addition to what is described above, we consider the one used, which means that, in the case of withdrawal of the purchase, only a portion or none of the purchase amount will be returned, depending on the merchant’s commercial value.
5) Repayment of purchase amount
If you regret your purchase, you will receive the amount you have paid back to us. In the case of a depreciation you are liable for, this purchase amount will be deducted. If you use your right of withdrawal, we will refund all payments received from you, including delivery costs (excluding additional costs due to your choice of delivery other than the cheapest form of standard delivery we offer) without undue delay and at all Circumstances within 14 days from the date we have received notice of your decision to withdraw this agreement. We make such repayment with the same payment method that you used for the original transaction, unless you explicitly agree otherwise.
We can withhold the refund until we have received the return, unless you have submitted documentation before returning it. We do not receive packages without distribution or packages sent per. COD. If you regret the purchase, the item must be sent to:
