Before purchasing Products by placing an order, Customers are asked to carefully read these general terms and conditions of sale and the information on the right to cancel transactions, print a copy of same by using the print function and/or save a copy for their own use.

No warranty shall apply if a Product has been used or washed improperly and/or inconsistently with the instructions/warnings imparted in such regard by the Seller and/or the Proprietor or contained in the relevant explanatory documents or written on tags or labels.

  2. On pain of forfeiture of this warranty, Customers are obliged to report any faults and/or inconsistencies no later than two (2) months after their discovery by sending the apposite form [click here to download the form to be used to return faulty Products], duly compiled, stating the fault and/or inconsistency discovered and attaching the documentation required as stated in said form (at least one (1) photograph of the Product, the order confirmation sent by the Seller and/or the receipted bill), by e-mail to the Customer Service department at the following address: customercareshop@alvieromartini.it).

  3. Following its receipt of such a claim and the relating documentation, the Seller will examine the faults and/or inconsistencies reported by the Customer via the Proprietor’s Customer Care department and, after carrying out the quality controls required to verify the Product’s effective inconsistency with its description, will decide whether to authorize the return of the Product(s) in question and so inform the Customer by e-mail sent to the address provided by the latter when registering with the Website or when placing the relevant order, providing the Customer with a “Returned Goods Code” if authorization is granted. Under no circumstance will an authorization to return Products constitute an admission of faults or inconsistencies, the existence of which will have to be ascertained after their return. Products whose return is authorized by the Seller are to be returned by the Customer concerned, together with copy of the notice authorizing their return that contains the relevant “Returned Goods Code”, within thirty (30) days of the date of such authorization, to the following address:

    Triboo Digitale S.r.l. c/o Arcese Logistic

  4. In conjunction with the Proprietor’s Customer Care department, the Seller will decide whether it is possible to repair the Product and thus render it consistent with its description, within a reasonable timeframe and taking account of the kind of item concerned.

  5. If it is not feasible to repair a Product, the Seller undertakes that it will reimburse the price paid to the Customer; where possible, such sum will be returned using the same payment method used by the Customer to purchase the Product or by bank transfer. Customers are required, when claiming against the warranty or by using a contact form, to provide the Seller with the details of their bank account needed for bank transfer purposes so as to enable the Seller to return the amount due.

  6. If the purchase price has been paid, totally or in part, by Gift Card, the reimbursement procedure shall be regulated by the provisions contained in §2bis.5. above.
