Pursuant to the Consumer Code (Legislative Decree no. 206/2005 as amended by Legislative Decree no. 21/2014), the Customer (also qualified as a "Consumer", ie a person acting for unrelated purposes to any entrepreneurial, commercial, artisanal or professional activity carried out) has the right to withdraw from the contract and to return the ordered Products, without any penalty and without specifying the reason, within 5 days after the receipt of the Products.
The right of withdrawal, expressed with an explicit declaration, also using the withdrawal form attached to the Consumer Code, must be exercised by the Customer, under penalty of forfeiture, by sending a registered mail with the return receipt, to the following address:
Azienda Agricola GiromagiLoc. Landrucci 52044 Terontola (AR), Italia
Within 5 days from the date of receipt of the goods, i.e. from the moment in which the consumer or a third party, other than the carrier (or courier) and designated by the consumer, acquires physical possession of the goods, except of the case of multiple goods, ordered by the consumer, which are delivered separately: in this case the deadline for communicating the will to withdraw from the contract starts from the day, on which the consumer or a third party, other than the carrier and designated by the consumer, has acquired physical possession of the last good.
The notice of withdrawal may be sent, within the same term, also by telegram or fax, sent and followed by a confirmation by registered mail with acknowledgment of receipt sent STRICTLY within the following 48 hours. The burden of proof relating to the exercise of the right of withdrawal in accordance with this article lies with the Customer.
Once the aforementioned notice of withdrawal has been received, Giromagi Cactus will communicate to the Customer straighgt away the instructions on how to return the goods that must be received by Giromagi Cactus within 5 days after the authorization.
The right of withdrawal is not permitted with reference to the purchase of goods, for which the amount paid by the Consumer does not exceed 50 euros and is excluded in relation to the contracts indicated in art. 59 of the Consumer Code, which include:
• the supply of goods made to measure or clearly personalized;
• the supply of goods that risk deteriorating or expiring rapidly;
• the supply of sealed goods that do not lend themselves to being returned for hygienic reasons or related to health protection, which have been opened after delivery;
the right of withdrawal is however subject to the following mandatory conditions:
• the law applies to the product purchased in its entirety; it is not possible to exercise withdrawal only on some part of the purchased product;
• the purchased good must be intact and returned in the original packaging, complete in all its parts (including packaging and any documentation and accessory equipment); to limit damage to the original packaging, we recommend, when possible, to put it in a second box; in all cases, the affixing of labels or adhesive tapes directly to the original product packaging should be avoided;
• in case the goods have undergone a decrease in value due to the wrong use of the Product to verify its characteristics, nature and functioning, the Consumer will be responsible for the decrease in the value of the goods;
• the shipping costs for returning the goods are charged to the Customer;
During the aforementioned withdrawal period, the Customer is responsible for the object as custodian. The shipment is under the full responsibility of the Customer, until the certificate of receipt in our warehouse is received.
In case of damage of the goods during transportation, Giromagi Cactus will communicate the Customer about the incident (within 5 working days of receipt of the goods in its warehouses), to allow him to promptly file a complaint against the courier he has chosen and obtain a refund of the value of the goods (if insured); in this case, the product can be replaced, while canceling the request for withdrawal;
Giromagi Cactus is not responsible in any way for damage or theft / loss of goods returned by uninsured shipments.
Without prejudice to any repair costs for damage to the original packaging, Giromagi Cactus will refund the Customer the full amount already paid without undue delay and in any case no later than 14 days from the day, on which Giromagi Cactus will be aware of the intention to withdraw from the contract or to return the goods, using the same payment method as for the initial transaction, by means of a reversal of the amount charged to the credit card or by bank transfer. In the latter case, it will be the customer's responsibility to promptly provide the bank details, on which to obtain the refund (ABI Code - CAB - CIN - Current Account - of the invoice holder).
The right of withdrawal is totally lost, for lack of the essential condition of integrity of the Product (packaging and/or its contents), in cases where the Giromagi Cactus ascertains:
• the lack of the external packaging and/or the original internal packaging;
• the absence of integral elements of the product;
The Customer will not be able to exercise the right of withdrawal in case of the supply of personalized goods (eg: particular tree or plant grafts, requested by the Customer) or from a highly perishable and subject to rapid deterioration asset given the time required to exercise the right to withdrawal. In such cases, the right of withdrawal is excluded pursuant to art. 59, paragraph 1, letters (c) and (d) of the Consumer Code.
