15) Right of withdrawal

The purchaser has the right to withdraw from the contract concluded with the Seller, without any penalty and without specifying the reason, within 14 days from the day of receipt of the products purchased on www.blucapricioccolato.it.

In order to withdraw from the contract, the purchaser may use the return form (which conforms to the standard form pursuant to Article 49, paragraph 4 of the Consumer Code) to be filled in and sent to the Vendor at the e-mail address sales@blucapricioccolato.com or draw up and send to the Vendor another explicit declaration of his decision to withdraw from the contract.

After exercising the right of withdrawal, the Buyer shall return the products to the Seller within 14 days from the date of communication to the Seller of his decision to withdraw from the contract.

In the event that the purchaser decides to use a shipping method other than that indicated by the seller (courier), the shipping costs shall be borne by the purchaser, as well as the responsibility in case of loss of or damage to the products during transport.

The right of withdrawal, in addition to compliance with the terms and conditions described above, is understood to be exercised correctly if the following conditions are also met:

– Transmission of the return form or other explicit declaration of one’s intention to withdraw from the contract within the terms provided for by these general conditions of sale;

– The products must be returned in their original packaging, undamaged and sealed;

If the right of withdrawal is exercised in the manner provided, the Seller shall make the necessary checks on the conformity of the returned products and shall refund the amount due within 14 days from the date on which the Seller has returned the goods;

The Seller shall make the refund using the same means of payment used by the Purchaser to purchase the returned products, unless otherwise agreed between the parties.

If the procedures and terms for exercising the right of withdrawal are not respected, the Purchaser shall not be entitled to a refund of the sums already paid to the Seller.

The right applies to the Product purchased in its entirety; therefore, if the Product is composed of several components or parts, it is not possible to exercise the right to withdraw only on part of the Product purchased.

– order of Products made to measure or clearly customised;

– order of Products that are likely to deteriorate or expire rapidly;

– orders for sealed Products that are not suitable to be returned for hygienic or health protection reasons or that have been opened after delivery.

With reference to the cases of exclusion of withdrawal listed above, the Customer, in particular, is informed and accepts that among the Products that “risk deteriorating or expiring rapidly” are all food products (including wines, spirits and beverages) as the characteristics and qualities of these types of Products are subject to alteration also as a result of inappropriate storage. Therefore, for hygienic reasons and for the protection of the Customers, the right of withdrawal is applicable only to the Products purchased on the Site that can be returned to Peccati di Capri International Srl and put back on the market without any risk for the consumers’ health.

In cases of exclusion of the right of withdrawal, Peccati di Capri International Srl will return to the Customer the purchased Products, charging to the same the shipping costs.
