The direct return costs will be paid by the Customer.
10.3 Conditions of Integrity for the Return
According to Article 57 of the Consumer Code, the consumer is liable if the products returned by the Customer are damaged, incomplete, damaged and/or used in a non-compliant manner. It is considered that goods are used beyond the normal diligence in the case of use beyond that necessary to establish their nature, characteristics and operations (eg in case of removal of the tags, if the garment was worn rather than just being tried on).
You can return an item purchased at shop.ijodesign.com only if it is in the same condition as when it was received. The Customer must then ensure that:
– the item has not been used or suffered damage during being tried on;
– the item has not been dirtied or been washed;
– the item keeps all labels, tags and warranty seals on the item when checking the quality and original finishes;
– the item has not been modified in any way.
In particular, we must specify that all types of items in their original box (eg. small accessories) must be returned in their original packaging, which is considered an integral part of the article.
In case the damaged, incomplete and/or deteriorated goods are returned and/or the conditions of use are not compliant with due diligence, notwithstanding the right to rescission, the customer will be charged the sum corresponding to the decreased value of the goods. In such cases, Antico Atelier Digitale will promptly notify the Customer of the damage and non-conformities found when receiving the items. The amount charged to the Customer, which in any case cannot be higher than the price paid for the purchase of the item, will be deducted from the Customer’s refund.
10.4 Items that are incorrect, damaged or different from those ordered
We would like to inform Customers that shop.ijodesign.com submits its own garments and materials with which they are packed to strict quality controls, ensuring that they are sold in perfect condition. In addition, for greater remote purchasing protection, every single item shipped by shop.ijodesign.com is checked before being shipped. Shop.ijodesign.com adopts the best photographic standards so that the colour rendering on the website is as close as possible to the appearance, as there may be variations due to the technical features and colour resolution provided by the customer’s computer. Antico Atelier Digitale is therefore not responsible for the inadequacy of the photographic representations of the products due to the aforementioned technical reasons. In these cases, the Customer may only return the product within the terms of the rescission period referred to in art. 9.
In case of receipt of a product other than the one ordered, the Customer may return the product within the terms of the rescission period referred to in art. 9.
Ijo’ design also aims to inform their consumers that any discrepancies found on the dress are not to be considered defects but merits, due to manual processing.
- Compliance – Warranty
Regarding the compliance warranty for the purchased product, the sale of Ijò Design products regulated by these General Terms and Conditions is subject to statutory legal guarantees. The articles of the Consumer Code relating to the legal warranty of the compliance of the goods are hereby reproduced:
” Article 129 of the Consumer Code:
- The seller must deliver goods to the consumer, which are in conformity with the contract of sale.
- Consumer goods are presumed to comply with the contract if, where relevant, the following circumstances coexist: (a) they are fit for the purposes for which goods of the same type are normally used; (b) they comply with the description given by the seller and possess the qualities of the goods which the seller has held out to the consumer as a sample or model; (c) they show the quality and performance which are normal in goods of the same type and which the consumer can reasonably expect, given the nature of the goods and taking into account any public statements on the specific characteristics of the goods made about them by the seller, the producer or his representative, particularly in advertising or on labelling; (d) they are also fit for any particular purpose for which the consumer requires them and which he made known to the seller at the time of conclusion of the contract and which the seller has accepted also for facts concluding from the same.
- There shall be deemed not to be a lack of conformity if, at the time the contract was concluded, the consumer was aware, or could not reasonably be unaware of, the lack of conformity, or if the lack of conformity has its origin in materials or instructions supplied by the consumer.
- The seller shall not be bound by public statements, as referred to in paragraph 2(c) if he, alternatively, shows that: a) he was not, and could not reasonably have been, aware of the statement in question; b) by the time of conclusion of the contract the statement had been corrected in order to be shared with the consumer; c) the decision to buy the consumer goods could not have been influenced by the statement.
- Any lack of conformity resulting from incorrect installation of the consumer goods shall be deemed to be equivalent to lack of conformity of the goods if installation forms part of the contract of sale of the goods and the goods were installed by the seller or under his responsibility. This shall apply equally if the product, intended to be installed by the consumer, is installed by the consumer and the incorrect installation is due to a shortcoming in the installation instructions.”
” Article 130 of the Consumer Code:
- The seller shall be liable to the consumer for any lack of conformity which exists at the time the goods were delivered.
- In the case of a lack of conformity, the consumer shall be entitled to have the goods brought into conformity free of charge by repair or replacement, in accordance with paragraphs 3, 4, 5 and 6, or to have an appropriate reduction made in the price or the contract rescinded, in accordance with paragraphs 7, 8 and 9.
- The consumer, at his option, may ask the seller to repair the goods or to replace them, in either case free of charge, unless this is impossible or disproportionate.
- For the purposes of paragraph 3, a remedy shall be deemed to be disproportionate if it imposes costs on the seller which, in comparison with the alternative remedy, are unreasonable, taking into account: a) the value the goods would have if there were no lack of conformity; b) the significance of the lack of conformity; c) whether the alternative remedy could be completed without significant inconvenience to the consumer.
- Any repair or replacement shall be completed within a reasonable time and without any significant inconvenience to the consumer, taking account of the nature of the goods and the purpose for which the consumer purchased the goods.
- The expenses referred to in paragraphs 2 and 3 refer to the necessary costs incurred to bring the goods into conformity, particularly with regards to shipment, labour and materials.
- The consumer may, at his request, ask for an appropriate reduction in the price or the termination of the contract where one of the following situations occurs: (a) repair and replacement are impossible or excessively costly; (b) the seller did not repair or replace the goods within the appropriate time frame referred to in paragraph 6; (c) the replacement or repair previously carried out has caused considerable disadvantages to the consumer.
- When determining the amount of the reduction or the sum to be returned, the use of the good is considered.
- After the compliance complaint has been lodged, the seller may offer the consumer any other available remedy with the following effects: (a) when the consumer has already requested a specific remedy, the seller is obliged to implement it, with the necessary consequences regarding the appropriate term referred to in paragraph 6, unless the consumer accepts the proposed alternative remedy; b) if the consumer has not already requested a specific remedy, the consumer must accept the proposal or reject it by choosing another remedy under this article.
- A minor compliance defect for which it was not possible or excessively expensive to repair or replace does not invoke the right to terminate the contract.”
“Article 132 of the Consumer Code:
- The seller is liable, pursuant to Article 130, where the compliance defect occurs within a period of two years from the delivery of the good.
- The consumer shall cease to be entitled to the rights provided for in Article 130, paragraph 2, if he does not notify the seller of the defect within two months from the date on which he discovered the defect. A complaint is not necessary if the seller acknowledged the existence of the defect or concealed it.
- Unless there is evidence to the contrary, it is assumed that any compliance defects that occurs within six months of delivery of the good existed at that date unless this theory is incompatible with the nature of the goods or the nature of the lack of compliance.
- In any event, reporting defects that are not dealt with by the seller shall, in any event, be carried out within a period of twenty-six months after delivery of the goods; the consumer, who is bound by the contract, may, however, always claim the rights referred to in Article 130, paragraph 2, provided that the compliance defect has been reported within two months of discovery and before the expiry of the term set forth in the previous period.”
In case of receipt of non-conforming products or of a product other than that ordered, the Customer must make the product available for Antico Atelier Digitale and Antico Atelier Digitale must verify that the numbered warranty seal placed on the item during the quality control prior to shipping is intact and has not been removed.
Under no circumstances will tailoring changes be made to the garments purchased since these would be overly expensive for Antico Atelier Digitale.
Likewise, no costs that the Customer incurs in order to make tailor-made adjustments and/or alterations to the items purchased will be reimbursed, and will therefore remain at the exclusive expense of the Customer.
