If a product is given free or at a discount along with a specified purchase and the paid-for product is returned for refund, unless the free or discounted product is also returned, the list price of the free or discounted product will be deducted from the refunded price of the paid-for product.

If a product is given free or at a discount on the basis of a qualifying level of expenditure and the paid-for product is returned for refund bringing the total spend to below the qualifying level for the free or discounted product, then if the free or discounted product is not also returned, the list price of the free or discounted product will be deducted from the refunded price of the paid-for product.

2. Condition of Goods - The products are received by us no longer than 14 days after the day on which you cancel your order. The goods are in an unworn, clean and saleable condition with swing tickets still attached. The original packaging is undamaged and intact. 

3. Packaging and Post - Pack the item you wish to return in suitable outer packaging to ensure it reaches us in good condition.  Complete and enclose the returns form that is included in your package, not forgetting to fill in your name and order details.  It is advisable to use a tracking or signed-for postal or courier service.


Products purchased as gifts can be refunded to the original purchaser, or alternatively we can provide a credit to the gift recipient.  Gift exchanges will show on the order history of the original purchaser.  Please include a suitable delivery address for us to despatch exchanged products.

Faulty items will be replaced, repaired or refunded following evaluation by the Genus Customer Services department and in accordance with the terms of the Consumer Rights Act 2015.   Goods may be refunded, repaired or replaced if a claim is made within 30 days of purchase.  After this period and before six months have passed, Genus will either repair or replace the item.  Only if this remedy proves to be unsatisfactory will Genus issue a refund.  After six months, the onus is on the customer to prove that a manufacturing fault was present when the goods were bought.

Please note that items that are damaged as a result of regular, excessive or inappropriate usage are not considered to be faulty.

If a faulty item is to be exchanged, it can only be replaced for the same product in the same size, subject to availability.
