Right of withdrawal
In accordance with the law on electronic commerce, if the Customer is a consumer (i.e., a natural person who purchases the goods for purposes not related to his or her professional activity, i.e., does not make the purchase by indicating a VAT number on the order form to the Seller), he or she is entitled to withdraw from the purchase contract for any reason whatsoever, without the need to provide an explanation and without any penalty, without prejudice to what is established in the following point To exercise this right, the Customer must send the Seller a written notice to that effect within 14 days from the date of receipt of the goods. This communication should be sent by letter addressed to:
New Works Webtech Srl
(Customer Service Askoll Shop)
Via Oltrecolle 129
22100 Como (Italia)
or by telegram or email to firstname.lastname@example.org always sent within the aforementioned 14-day term. Once the aforementioned notice of withdrawal is received, the Seller's Customer Service will promptly provide the Customer with instructions on how to return the goods, which must be returned by the Customer and received by the Seller within 14 days of authorisation. The right of withdrawal is however subject to the following conditions:
the right applies to the purchased product in its entirety;
the purchased goods must be intact and returned in their original packaging, complete in all its parts (including packaging and any documentation, etc.);
the affixing of labels or adhesive tapes directly onto the original product packaging should be avoided in all cases;
shipping costs for the return of the goods shall be borne by the Customer. In the case of returns from non-EU countries, all costs relating to transport, customs clearance and VAT shall be borne by the Customer;
- the shipment, until the certificate of receipt in the Seller's warehouse, is under the full responsibility of the Customer.
The sending of the return request by the Customer in accordance with the above procedures and the relative authorisation by e-mail by the Seller constitute a necessary condition for the return to be accepted. The consent to return sent to the Customer by the Seller includes the address of the warehouse to which the goods to be returned should be sent. The Seller reserves the right to refuse unauthorised returns that do not comply with these return terms. The goods will then be returned to the Customer at the original shipping address.
In the event of damage to the goods during transport, the Seller shall inform the Customer of what has happened (within the 5th day from receipt of the goods in its warehouses), to enable him to file a timely complaint against the freighter selected by him and to obtain reimbursement of the value of the goods (if insured); in this eventuality, the product will be made available to the Customer for its return, at the same time cancelling the request for withdrawal; The Seller shall not be liable in any way for damage or theft/loss of goods returned by uninsured shipments. Upon arrival (in the warehouse), the product will be examined for any damage or tampering not resulting from transport. If the packaging and/or the original packaging are damaged, the Seller shall deduct a percentage from the refund due, in any case not exceeding 10% of the same, as a contribution to the costs of restoration or may refuse the return. Without prejudice to any costs of recovery for damage to the original packaging, the Seller shall refund the Customer the full amount already paid, excluding shipping costs. The refund will be made within 14 days of the return of the goods. The refund operation will be carried out by the Seller, based on the payment method used when placing the order, by re-crediting the amount due, which will be paid to the credit card or Paypal account used at the time of the order or by bank transfer to the account that the Customer will state upon express request of the Seller. The right of withdrawal lapses completely, due to the lack of the essential integrity of the goods (packaging and/or its contents), in cases where the Seller ascertains that:
- the lack of the original outer packaging and/or inner packaging;
the absence of integral elements of the product (accessories, parts, etc.);
- damage to the product for reasons other than transport.
- damage to the original packaging
- removal of labels tags and/or security seals
In the event of forfeiture of the right of withdrawal, the Seller shall return the purchased goods to the sender and charge the latter for the shipping costs. Any complaints should be addressed to:
