In the event that the Products sold on the Website show non-conformities, the Customer must contact customer care by sending an email to email@example.com.

In order to verify the non-conformity of the Product, customer care may ask the Customer for photographs or other evidence.

The Customer has the right to have the Product restored to complete conformity by having it repaired or replaced, at no cost to him/herself. In the event that repair is objectively impossible or excessively difficult, and re-placement is impossible due to the unavailability of the Product, the Customer may ask for a Refund or Price reduction in the appropriate amount. Claims regarding alleged non-conformities must, by law, be made within 26 (twenty-six) months of the date when the Products were delivered to the Customer.
In the event that the Customer requests the repair or replacement of Products due to an alleged non-conformity, the delivery costs for the return of the Products to be repaired or replaced, as well as all costs to have the re-paired or replaced Products returned to the Customer, are borne entirely by the Seller.
No guarantee shall apply and the Seller shall bear no liability in cases where the Product was used and/or washed without observing the instruc-tions that came with it, i.e. in the information leaflets of reference, tags or labels.
