a. in case of a single Product order, from the day the User or a third party other than the carrier and designated by the User comes into material possession of the Product;
b. in case of a Multiple Order with separate deliveries, from the day the User or a third party other than the carrier and designated by the User comes into material possession of the Product delivered last; or
c. in case of an order related to the delivery of a Product of different batches or multiple pieces, from the day when the User or a third person, different from the carrier and designated by the User, comes into material possession of the last batch or the last piece.
11.2 To exercise the Right of withdrawal, the User must inform the Seller, prior to the expiry of the Withdrawal Period, of his/her decision to withdraw.
11.3 The Right of withdrawal is deemed to have been exercised within the Withdrawal Period if the relevant communication is sent by the User before the expiry of the Withdrawal Period. The communication shall be sent by means of the Contact Us form available here.

The refund will occur by using the same payment method used for the original transaction. If the User has returned the Products using a carrier of his/her choice and at his/her own expense, the Seller may suspend the refund until receipt of the Products or until he/she proves that he/she has returned the Products, whichever is earlier.
11.7 The User is only responsible of the decrease in value of the goods due to a different use of the Product to the one necessary to establish the features and the Product functioning.

The withdrawal is applied to the Product in its entirety. In this sense it cannot be exercised just for some parts and/or accessories (which don’t represent and are not autonomous products) of the Product.
11.8 In the event that the withdrawal has not been exercised in compliance with the applicable provisions of law, it will not result in termination of the Products purchase agreement and, by consequence, won’t create any right of reimbursement. The Seller shall communicate to the User that it shall reject the withdrawal request from the reception of the Product. In case the Product already arrived back to the Seller, it will stay to the Seller for User disposal for the pick-up that will have to be done on charge and under responsibility of the User.
11.9 In case the Right of withdrawal cannot be applied, the User will be informed on the Website.
11.20 In the case of partial withdrawal from Multiple Orders, the amount of delivery costs to be reimbursed in favor of the User will be quantified in proportion to the value of the Product subject to withdrawal. For example, the User has placed an order of 200.00 Euros, which includes two Products, the first worth 50.00 Euros and the second worth 150.00 Euros, and returns the Product of the value of 150.00 Euros, the User will be reimbursed for an amount equal to 75% of the delivery costs incurred.
