Who can and how to activate the Right of Withdrawal
The Right of Withdrawal is regulated by law if the customer-consumer (a person who buys goods for purposes not related to his professional activity, namely doesn't indicate in the order form a reference to VAT when purchasing) has, for any reason, the right to terminate the purchase contract.
To exercise this right, the customer must send to Agostani srl a notice within 10 working days with effect from the date of delivery of the goods.
This notice shall be sent by Registered post with acknowledgement of receipt addressed to:
Via dei sassi 4
23862 Civate Lecco
Customers who buy as a company, using the VAT number, can't exercise the right of withdrawal
The Right of Withdrawal is subject to the following conditions (Article 67 of the Italian Consumer Code):
- If the goods have been delivered, the consumer must return them or make them available to the professional or the person designated by him, in accordance with the arrangements and timing stipulated in the contract. The return deadline can not be less than ten working days from the date of receipt of the goods. Upon expiry of the term, the goods are considered returned when they are delivered to the post office or shipping agent.
- For contracts about the sale of goods, if the goods have been delivered, the integrity of the property to be returned is an essential condition for exercising the right of withdrawal. However, it's sufficient that the goods are returned in normal condition, as it was kept and used with the use of reasonable diligence.
- The only costs payable by the consumer for exercising the right of withdrawal, pursuant to this article, are the direct costs of returning the goods to the sender, where expressly authorized by contract.
- All items purchased at Agostini Srl will be returned and replaced with other articles of the same amount within 10 days from the date of purchase.
