8. Right of Withdrawal
8.1 The Customer shall have the right to withdraw from the contract concluded with the Seller, without any penalty and without specifying the reason, only if they are a Consumer (meaning with this definition any natural person acting on the site for purposes unrelated to the entrepreneurial or professional activity possibly carried out). In order to make use of the right, the Client must communicate to the Seller the intention within the period of fourteen (14) days, starting from the day on which the Customer or a third party, designated by the Customer and other than the Carrier, acquires the physical possession of the goods. The term is considered respected if the Customer returns the goods before the expiry of the period of (14) days. We remind the Customer that, as required by current legislation, the right of withdrawal is excluded and can therefore not be exercised in the event that the products they have purchased have been made to measure and/ or customized on request at the time of inserting the Order. All resoling processes are therefore excluded.
8.2 To make use of the right of withdrawal you have the following possibilities:
- 8.2.1 If the Client is a registered user, they must log in after authenticating with their username and password to the Account section of the website. Here in the My Orders section, the Client will find the list of their orders with a link next to each one to activate the return procedure. By accessing the Online Return Form within the deadline of fourteen (14) days from the product’s delivery date, the Client can notify us of their wish to withdraw from the contract, indicating which Products will be returned.
- 8.2.2 As an alternative to the above, they can also submit any other explicit declaration of your willingness to exercise the right of withdrawal, also by completing the Withdrawal Form pursuant to Annex I, part B of D. Lgs 21/2014 that they must send us by registered mail a.r..
8.3 When completing the Online Return Form the Client will receive all the information necessary for the return of the Products.
8.4 The right of withdrawal is subject to the following conditions:
- Products returned must be returned in their entirety and not divided in parts or components of them even in the case of kits;
- The returned Products must not have been used, worn, washed, soiled, or damaged and must not bear any sign of use;
- Returned Products must be returned packaged exactly as they were shipped, complete with each accessory and label.
- Returned Products must be sent to the Seller in one shipment. The Seller reserves the right not to accept Products of the same Order returned and shipped at different times;
- The returned Products must be delivered to the courier within fourteen (14) days from the date the Client received the products;
- In cases where the Seller, for the purchase of a specific package of Products, offers the possibility to purchase them at a lower price than that which would normally be charged by purchasing them individually (e.g. 5 for 4, 3 for 2, etc.) the right of withdrawal can be exercised even with the return of only some of the products purchased: in this case the price will be recalculated taking as a reference the price normally charged for the purchase of the individual product. In all other cases (e.g. tied sales, premium transactions, etc.) the right of withdrawal may be exercised only with the return of all the Products subject to purchase, thus excluding any partial exclusion.
8.5 If the right of withdrawal is exercised by the Client in accordance with the above conditions (paragraph 8.4), the Seller is obliged to reimburse the sums paid by the Client no later than fourteen (14) days from the date on which the Seller was informed of their decision. This applies if it is provided that the Seller has already received the return of the goods or that you provide the Seller with proof that the Client already dispatched the goods. The Seller will use the same means of payment they used for the initial transaction for the refund, unless they explicitly ask the Seller to use a different means and the latter consents.
8.6 In the event of withdrawal, the only charges borne by the Client will remain the initial shipping of the order of the products purchased. All other expenses will be refunded by the Seller, including the costs of delivery of the goods returned following the exercise of the right of withdrawal (except for the additional costs arising from the Client’s choice to use a different and more expensive delivery method than the standard delivery type offered by the Seller).
8.7 Action Directe S.C. also undertakes to bear the initial shipping costs of the Products exclusively in the event of damage to the same due to transport or errors in the shipment by the Seller itself. Only in these cases, the Seller will also refund the amount the Client paid as shipping costs. The Seller will send an express courier for the collection of the Product at the address indicated by the Client.
8.8 For the return the Client will have to exclusively use the Courier indicated by the Seller in the Online Return Form: this way the Client will not have to pay the expenses at their charge of returning the purchased products since such payment will be made, on the Client’s behalf, directly from the Seller. Subsequently, the Seller will deduct a lump sum equal to the cost previously incurred by the Client from the refund due for the shipment and delivery to their home of the purchased products or to the shipping costs normally provided for the delivery country. Cases of return by product’s flaw or for the provisions of section 8.7 above exceed this. From the moment the Client return the purchased products to the mail service indicated by the Seller in the online return form, the Seller releases the Client from any liability in case of loss or damage of the products during transport.
8.9 In the case of the exercise of the right of withdrawal without compliance with the above procedures (e.g. over 14 days provided by law, or without having completed the online return form, or without compliance with the conditions set out in paragraph 8.4 above, etc.) the client will not be entitled to a refund of any sums already paid to the Seller. Within 10 days from the email’s sending date in which the Client will be notified of the non-acceptance of the return, it’s possible to reply to it choosing to gain back the products in the state they were returned to the Seller. In case you decide to do so, please be mindful that it’ll be at the Client’s expense. Otherwise, the Seller may withhold the products in addition to the sums already paid for their purchase.
8.10 The right of withdrawal cannot be applied in the case of personalized products on the Client’s explicit request at the time of the insertion of the Order.
9. Guarantee for noncompliant products.
9.1 The Seller is responsible for any defect of the products offered on the website, including the non-conformity of the items to the products ordered, following the provisions of Italian law.
9.2 In particular, in the event of non-compliance, the Customer who has entered into the contract as a Consumer will be entitled to obtain the restoration of conformity of the products at no cost, by repair or replacement. Other options can be obtaining an appropriate price reduction or the termination of the contract in respect of the disputed goods and the consequent refund of the price.
9.3 All return costs for defective products shall be borne by the Seller.
