The right of withdrawal can only be exercised by the Customer and cannot be exercised by any other party not even by the receiver of the product as a gift. To exercise the right of withdrawal, the Customer must send, within 14 days and not more from receipt of the goods, a simple written communication – via email to the address indicated above – expressly stating the intent to return the goods ordered, without specifying any specific reason. For this purpose we hereby attach a facsimile of the withdrawal notice which may be used by the Customer, it being understood that if the withdrawal involves the return of goods, the Customer must follow the procedure described below to return the goods. If a number of items are purchased, the right of withdrawal may be exercised even for just one item. In case of correct and legitimate exercise of the right of withdrawal, Minoronzoni S.r.l. shall return to the Customer the amount already paid by the latter for the said products for which the right of withdrawal is exercised, with the exception of transport/shipping costs, including those for the return of the products themselves, which shall be paid by the Customer. The said amount shall be refunded by Minoronzoni S.r.l. within 14 days of receipt of notice of withdrawal or, if the goods have already been delivered by Minoronzoni S.r.l. to the forwarding agent for delivery to the customer, within 14 days from the date of receipt by Minoronzoni S.r.l. of the said products returned by the Customer and provided that such products are intact, except in cases of delay not attributable to Minoronzoni S.r.l. To exercise the right of withdrawal, the Customer to which the goods have already been sent, must follow the instructions foreseen for returns in order to return the purchased goods to Minoronzoni s.r.l.; the goods must be exclusively and directly returned to the registered office of Minoronzoni s.r.l. mentioned above, within 15 days from receipt of the authorisation to return the goods following the exercise of the right of withdrawal. The goods must therefore be returned following the returns procedure which is described in the following point.

13) Returns

Returns shall only be accepted if previously authorised by Minoronzoni S.r.l. The intention to return goods must be communicated to Minoronzoni S.r.l. by e-mail through the following websites: www.toscablu.it and www.toscablushoes.it, specifying the following: product and/or products to be returned, number and date of invoice issued upon delivery of the product and reason for the return. After having checked the above mentioned information, Minoronzoni S.r.l. shall send an e-mail authorising the return if the conditions are fulfilled; the e-mail shall contain a return code and the relevant form to be included in the package used to return the goods authorised. It is understood that the products can only and exclusively be returned by the buyer and must be delivered to the registered office of Minoronzoni S.r.l., in Via E. Fermi, Ponte San Pietro - BG - Italy. The goods must be packaged using the original box to avoid deterioration during transport; packaging costs shall be borne by the Customer. If the original packaging cannot be reused, a similar box in terms of size and strength may be used. Items returned without following the procedure described shall not be accepted. Transport costs for return of goods, not even following a withdrawal, shall be borne by the buyer. The Customer may choose independently the courier for the return, in any case always at his or her own responsibility and expense, however, we suggest using a courier or postal service with a tracking system or advice of receipt. The Customer bears responsibility for consignment of the returned goods up until the moment Minoronzoni S.r.l. receives the returned goods. In case of any possible damage of the goods during transit, Minoronzoni S.r.l. will give timely communication to the Customer, in order for the Customer to take action against the forwarder in order to obtain from the latter appropriate compensation; in which case, therefore, the request for a refund will be revoked and the damaged product will be left at the disposal of the Customer. Minoronzoni S.r.l., furthermore, will not be responsible for any damage, theft or loss occurring during and/or dependent on the shipping of the returned goods. Upon delivery of the goods at the registered office of Minoronzoni S.r.l., the latter shall check the legitimacy of the return and after having checked the correctness of the operation, it shall send a confirmation e-mail to the user. In this case, the amount paid for the purchase shall be refunded through the system used to make the payment; transport and management charges shall not be refunded. The amount is usually credited within 14 days from receipt of the confirmation e-mail mentioned above, with the exception of delays not attributable to Minoronzoni Srl.
