Legal bits and bobs
Three Cycle Return Policy Trial
(Updated 3rd May 2020)
We are offering this policy to help you out with making your switch from disposables to reusables easier during this time of uncertainty both socially and economically (and because we love our Wā Cup so much and are confident you will too!).
Our Three Cycle Swap and Return Policy with money-back guarantee means you can get a refund out of goodwill, or a size swap on our “Wā Cup” (menstrual cup) if returned within the time frames stipulated below. You may exchange your used Wā Cup if you ordered the wrong size (subject to availability) or ask for a refund on your used Wā Cup in accordance with the conditions below and your legal rights will not be affected. This includes Wā Cup purchases made through our retail partners throughout Aotearoa NZ and online on our website.
1. Give your Wā Cup a 'fair go':
This means you must return your used Wā Cup to Wā Collective HQ after giving it a fair go - ie - for three cycles in the case of wanting a refund or size change. This is because it can take 1 - 3 periods to get used to a menstrual cup and we don't want to cut your invitation to better period-ing short or waste unnecessary resources both for the environment or the sustainability of us as a social enterprise.
2. Return any Wā Cup after three cycles, within 90 - 120 days from purchase
If you find you are unhappy with your purchase, simply return your used Wā Cup after 90 days but within 120 days of purchase from our online store or any of our retail partners along with the return form (found below).
You only have to pay the cost of returning the Wā Cup to us and we will refund you the cost of the Wā Cup.
You are responsible for any returned Wā Cups until they reach us.
Please retain proof of your postage of any returned Wā Cup Product for your records as this may be required for confirmation.
For hygiene reasons please clean any used Wā Cup prior to its return in accordance with the user guide. We are developing a circular system where all cups will be re-purposed, meaning any Wā Cups returned to us will be transformed in an environmentally safe and hygienic way.
This trial is valid for sales between 1st May- 31st August 2020 only
We are trailing this for four months. Our Three Cycle Policy is valid for sales from 1st May 2020 until August 1st, or as long as Wā Collective sees fit.
