8.1 After the products are returned, the vendor will carry out the necessary checks regarding the conformity of the products to the terms and conditions indicated in paragraph 7. If the outcome of these checks is positive, customer service will send you an email confirmation that your returned products have been accepted. If the outcome of these checks is not positive, customer service will notify you, via email, of the diminished value of the returned products as a result of your failure to observe the conditions set out in paragraph 7.3. At the same time, you will also be notified of the sum to be deducted from the amount you paid for purchasing the returned products; notwithstanding, alternatively, the possibility to reclaim the products, at your own expense, in the state in which they were returned to the vendor, as provided for in paragraph 7.10.
8.2 Regardless of the payment method used, the refund, whether full or partial, is activated by the vendor as soon as possible once it has been verified that you have correctly exercised your right of withdrawal and once the returned products have been checked.
8.3 The vendor will complete the refund using the same payment method used by you for purchasing the returned items, unless you have expressly agreed upon a different payment method with the vendor and provided that you will not incur further charges as a consequence of the refund. Where the recipient of the products indicated on the order form and the person who carried out the payment of the necessary amount for their purchase differ, the refund, if the right of withdrawal is exercised, will be carried out by the vendor, in any case, to the person who made the payment.
8.4 The value date of the credit is the same of that of the debit; therefore you will not suffer any loss in terms of bank interest.
8.5 The vendor indicates which courier to use for returning DHL products (www.dhl.com). With DHL, using the pre-printed adhesive labels on your return parcel, you can return products to the vendor, without incurring charges. This method also frees you of any liability in the event of loss or damage of products during shipping.
8.6 Should you decide to use a different courier to return the products to that indicated by the vendor, you will instead need to personally bear and carry out the payment of the necessary costs and you will be held responsible in the event of loss or damage of products during shipping, in accordance with the methods and terms provided for exercising the right of withdrawal.
