You may return (where available) your ZIMMERMANN Online Store purchase, including sale items, by returning it to a ZIMMERMANN Store in Australia or by sending it back to the ZIMMERMANN Australia Online Store. Subject to adherence to the following terms (ZIMMERMANN Outlets are excluded):
For in-store full-price purchases, returns other than for faulty goods must be made within 7 days for credit note. All sale items purchased in store are final sale. No refunds unless required by law.

• Items must be in original condition (including tags) and must not have been worn, altered or washed.
• Items must not have been used in photography shoots, Instagram posts, online, commercially or for personal gain.
• For online purchases, all packaging (including garment bags) shipped with your order must be returned.
