By placing the order, the Customer expressly recognizes that this implies an obligation to pay the price and the other amounts due under these general terms and conditions of sale.

9.2 To exercise the right of withdrawal, the Customer must inform Via Isaac Newton, 16/a 50018 Scandicci (FIRENZE) ITALY, e-mail of its decision to withdraw from this contract by an unequivocal statement (e.g. a letter sent by post or e-mail) before the withdrawal period has expired.

10 Guarantees and assistance modalities

10.1 To protect Customers the law provides for the legal guarantee of conformity for goods. In the event of receipt of products which do not comply with the sales contract, pursuant to Articles 129 et seq. of the Consumer Code, the Customer loses any right if he does not inform the seller of the lack of conformity within a period of two months from the date on which the defect was found. The complaint is not necessary if the seller has recognized the existence of the defect or has concealed it.

10.2 In any case, unless proved otherwise, any lack of conformity, which becomes apparent within six months of delivery of the goods, shall be presumed to have existed at that time unless this presumption is incompatible with the nature of the goods or the nature of the lack of conformity.

10.3 In the event of lack of conformity, the Customer can ask, alternatively and at no cost, under the conditions indicated below, for a repair or replacement of the goods purchased, or for a purchase price reduction or for the termination of this contract, unless the request is objectively impossible to satisfy or is excessively expensive for ITALIAN NICHE LAB pursuant to art. 130, paragraph 4 of the Consumer Code.

If the Customer request is accepted, ITALIAN NICHE LAB should indicate, in the same communication, the arrangements concerning the shipment or return of goods, as well as the deadline for returning or replacing the defective product.

10.5 If the repair and replacement are impossible or too costly, or if ITALIAN NICHE LAB has not repaired or replaced the goods within the time limit referred to in the previous point or, finally, the replacement or repair previously performed have caused considerable inconvenience to the Customer, the latter shall have the right to claim, at his choice, an appropriate price reduction or request that the contract be terminated. In that case, the Customer shall send his request to ITALIAN NICHE LAB, which, in turn, shall indicate its willingness to execute it or the reasons that prevent it from doing so, within seven working days of receipt.

10.6 If the Customer request is accepted, ITALIAN NICHE LAB shall indicate, in the same communication, the suggested price reduction as well as the arrangements concerning the return of the defective product.
