7. Purchase Procedure and Payment Methods
Each order submitted constitutes an offer to purchase the products in the order. The processing of orders is subject to the availability of the ordered products and their discretionary acceptance by Castello di Perno.
The user must select the products and complete the checkout after carefully verifying the information contained in the order summary. The order is placed by confirming it and is subject to the payment of the price, taxes, shipping, and payment fees indicated.
Following successful payment, the user will receive an order confirmation email containing information about the purchased offer. The order confirmation will include a summary of the delivery and billing address. In the absence of the confirmation email, the purchase cannot be validly considered concluded.
The payment for the order can be made during checkout through [credit card, PayPal, Satispay]. In the case of Satispay, the merchandise will be shipped only after the actual payment is credited.
The confidential credit card details, card number, cardholder, expiration date, and security code, are encrypted and transmitted directly to the payment processor without passing through the server used by Castello di Perno. Therefore, Castello di Perno does not have access to, and does not store the payment information used by the user for product purchases, except for the name of the cardholder of the payment instrument.
By placing an order on the Website, the user consents to receiving the invoice in electronic format. The issuance of the invoice will be based on the information provided by the user, which the user declares and guarantees to be accurate. The user undertakes to hold Castello di Perno harmless from any damage, including sanctions imposed by the competent authorities, that may result from inaccurate information.
The amounts due will be charged, unless otherwise specified in the terms of the offer, upon payment confirmation. In any case, Castello di Perno uses third-party tools for payment processing and does not have any contact with the payment data provided, such as those related to various payment instruments used. In case of non-confirmation of the order for any reason, Castello di Perno will fully refund the amount paid by the user.
8. Shipping, Delivery, and After-Sales Support
It is not possible to guarantee a specific date or time of delivery as this depends on the courier, the delivery address, and the delivery agent. Therefore, Castello di Perno cannot be held responsible for any direct or indirect consequences arising from these timing issues. Castello di Perno cannot be held responsible for delivery errors due to inaccuracies or omissions in the user’s purchase order, damages that may occur to the products after delivery to the carrier, or delays in delivery that are attributable to the carrier.
It is the user’s responsibility to check the condition of the product upon receipt and upon pickup. While the risk of loss or damage to the products, not attributable to Castello di Perno, is transferred to the user when they physically take possession of the product, it is recommended that the user verify the number of products received and that the packaging is intact, undamaged, not wet, or otherwise altered, including the sealing materials. For the user’s interest, any anomalies should be noted on the carrier’s transport document, and the package should be accepted with reservations. The unconditional receipt of the products does not allow the user to take legal action against the carrier or Castello di Perno.
Any problems related to the physical integrity, correspondence, or completeness of the products received should be reported within 3 days of delivery by sending an email to: email@example.com/ firstname.lastname@example.org. In the communication, the user must provide a description of the identified defect, indicate the product code, as well as the order number issued at the time of purchase and the identifying details of the invoice issued by the seller regarding the purchased products.
In the event of non-delivery of the goods within the specified timeframes, the user will be required to notify Castello di Perno, which will verify the shipment status with the carrier and any anomalies.
The order will be delivered only to individuals who can prove they are of legal age, excluding delivery to post office boxes.
Once the order form is registered, the customer will receive the order confirmation via the email address provided during registration on the Website. The order confirmation will also contain the order number, which should be used in any subsequent communication with Castello di Perno.
The customer is responsible for the accuracy and completeness of the information provided and is required to provide any information that may facilitate delivery.
In the event that the delivery agent cannot find anyone at the declared address, the merchandise will be returned to the seller’s location. This will result in additional costs that will be charged to the buyer.
9. Right of Withdrawal
In the case of purchasing products on the Website, the buyer has the right to withdraw from the contract within 14 (fourteen) days from the date of receiving the products, by returning the delivered goods intact and without any alterations to Castello di Perno. The right of withdrawal does not apply to sealed products that have been opened by the customer.
The withdrawal notice must be sent by email to the address email@example.com / firstname.lastname@example.org within 14 days from the delivery date and must include:
a) The user’s expression of the right of withdrawal under and for the effects of art. 54 of Legislative Decree no. 21/2014;
b) The indication of the products for which the customer intends to exercise the right of withdrawal, including the specification of the product’s article code;
c) The order’s sequential number issued at the time of purchase;
d) The identifying details of the electronic invoice issued by the seller for the purchased products.
The buyer who has exercised the right of withdrawal must return the goods intact and without any alterations within 14 days from the date of the withdrawal notice. The return shipping costs are the responsibility of the user. The goods must be sent to Castello di Perno, Monforte d’Alba (12065 CN), Locality Castelletto 33. The user is responsible for the packaging of the goods they intend to return and is therefore committed to taking the necessary precautions to preserve the product’s integrity and protect it from damage and alterations.
The goods must be returned intact, in their original packaging, complete in every part, and accompanied by the attached fiscal documentation. Subject to the right to verify the above, Castello di Perno will proceed to credit the amount paid for the purchase of the product/products to the withdrawing party within a maximum of thirty days from the date on which the seller becomes aware of the exercised right of withdrawal.
In any case, the credited amount will not be issued before:
a) Castello di Perno has received the shipment of the product/products;
b) Castello di Perno has verified the integrity of the product/products.
The clauses related to the exercise of the right of withdrawal, as well as the related consequences and exceptions, apply exclusively to users who can be classified as consumers, i.e., users who act for purposes unrelated to their business and professional activities.
