10. WITHDRAWAL

The right of withdrawal applies to natural persons i.e. consumers (individuals who purchase goods for purposes unrelated to their professional, commercial or business activity). Therefore, purchases made by professionals and businesses are considered excluded from the right of withdrawal.

If the Customer is a “Consumer”, as defined in Article 3 of the Consumer Code, he/she shall be entitled to the rights set forth in Article 52 et seq. of the Consumer Code, as amended by Legislative Decree of 21/02/2014 no. 21, and therefore the right to withdraw from the Purchase Agreement (hereinafter referred to as the “Right of Withdrawal”) for any reason whatsoever, without cause and without penalty.

The Withdrawal may relate to all (Total Withdrawal) or only part (Partial Withdrawal) of the purchased Goods. Return costs are the responsibility of the customer, except in cases where the order is affected by errors.

In order to exercise the right of withdrawal, the Customer must send a notice of withdrawal within 14 (fourteen) days from the day on which the Customer or his delegate acquires physical possession of the purchased products by signing for them. The Customer may use a simple communication (email) or the withdrawal form on the Site.

The means and addresses to which the notice of withdrawal should be sent by paper mail are:
Registered mail A/R: Paoloni Ceramiche 2.0 S.r.l.s. , via Nomentana, 958 – 00137 Rome, Italy.
Email: info@paoloniceramiche.it
Fax: +39 06 8200 4222.

Pursuant to Article 59 of Legislative Decree 06/09/2005 no. 206 (Consumer Code), the right of withdrawal does not apply to goods that are made to measure (custom bathroom furniture, custom cubicles and shower trays…), customized (colored washbasins, custom drilled…) or that due to their structure, cannot be returned, are likely to deteriorate rapidly or may be damaged. In the event that the product for sale falls into one of the cases referred to in Art. 59 described above, the Site will display that indication with the phrase “Return not available on this product.” Customers are urged to always check for the presence of such wording.

Following the correct exercise of the Right of Withdrawal, the Customer will receive on the e-mail address declared during registration all the instructions for returning the Products.

Pursuant to Art. 57 of the Consumer Code the return (return shipping costs to be borne by the Customer) of the Products to the Seller, shall be made without undue delay, and in any case no later than 14 (fourteen) days from the date on which the Consumer communicated his or her decision to wish to withdraw. The date of receipt of the notice of withdrawal by the Seller and the date of acceptance of the Product by the post office or the date on which the goods are picked up by a shipper will be decisive.

If the Customer has exercised the right of Withdrawal in accordance with the provisions of these conditions, the Seller, in accordance with Art. 56, paragraph 1 of the Consumer Code, will fully refund the amounts paid by the Customer at the time of purchase, including the initial shipping costs. The repayment of the sums will be made through the same instrument adopted by the Customer at the stage of payment, without undue delay and in any case within 14 (fourteen) days from the day on which it is informed of the consumer’s decision to withdraw from the contract pursuant to Article 54. The Seller will withhold the refund until it has received and verified the goods.

Returned goods must be returned in resalable condition, in their original packaging and accompanied by any accessories. Returns are not accepted for installed products. Pursuant to the Consumer Code, the Customer is responsible for the decrease in the value of the products resulting from handling the products other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and verification of the functioning of the goods. In such a case, the Seller reserves the right to ask the user for a refund of the decrease in value found. Therefore, if although there is no legal provision for a form of insurance on the return of goods due to the exercise of the Right of Withdrawal, the Customer is encouraged to adopt it.

In the event that goods, due to their weight and volume, cannot be returned by mail, the following are the estimated maximum return costs by product type:

– Bulky products (e.g., shower stall, ceramics): €400
– Non-bulky products, up to a maximum of 30 kg: 50€

In case of return for products purchased with Tax Deductions and payment by “talking bank transfer” Paoloniceramiche.it will not refund the withholding made by the Bank.
