finished the Online Return procedure. Then you may use an express or postal courier to return the items that
you purchased and send them back to this address:

Then, except for the provisions of preceding point 8.7 and for returns due to product defects, the Vendor will deduct a lump-sum amount from the refund due you equal to the cost you were previously charged for shipping to your home, or the shipping expenses normally charged for the country of delivery.
8.9 In the case where the option to deliver the products to one of the sales points that has an agreement with the Vendor was available at the time the online return form was filled out, you can return the Products directly to a sales point with an agreement with the Vendor. In that case, in addition to the price paid for the purchase, you will also be refunded the shipping expenses that you were previously charged for the delivery of the Products purchased. From the moment the products are delivered to the sales point, the Vendor releases you from any liability if they are lost or damaged during transport
8.10 In the case of the exercise of the right of withdrawal without following the methods indicated above (such as beyond the 14 days required by law, or without having filled out the Online Return Form, or without having fulfilled the conditions outlined under previous point 8.4 etc.) you will not be entitled to a refund for the amount already paid to the Vendor. Within 10 days of the email notifying you of non-acceptance of the return being sent, you can reply to the email and ask to have, at your own expense, the products back in the same state in which you returned them to the Vendor. Otherwise, the Vendor may keep both the products and the sums already paid to purchase them.
8.11 The right of withdrawal cannot be applied in the case of products that have been customized on your explicit request at the time the order was entered.
The Products must be checked by the Customer at the time of delivery in order to ensure that they correspond to the items ordered and that they do not present any defect or lack of conformity. Upon the sale of the Products, the legal guarantees apply, as provided for by current legislation (article 129 and according to the Consumer Code regarding the legal guarantee for the conformity of goods). All products sold by the Seller are covered by the legal guarantee should there be any lack of conformity within two (2) years from the delivery of the item: this signifies that the Seller is liable for any lack of conformity that presents within this time period. Any product defect must be communicated to the Seller within two (2) months of its discovery (unless it is contrary to mandatory regulations applicable in the Customer's habitual country of residence) by contacting Customer Services or the addresses provided in the following article 10 and filling in the Online Return Form located in the Order Status. In the event that the Customer does not communicate this defect within this time period, the aforementioned rights become null and void.
In the event of a defect, the Customer has the right to request that the product be repaired or replaced, at no extra cost to them. In the event that neither of these two options is possible or are excessively costly, the Customer shall have the right to a discount on the price paid or to the termination of the contract of sale and, consequently, a refund for the price paid, according to art. 130 of the Consumer Code.
The Seller shall bear all return costs for the defective products.
