DELETING USER ACCOUNTS AND ACCOUNT TERMINATION
Registered Users can cancel their accounts and stop using the Service at any time, through the interface of Insula or by directly contacting the Owner.
The Owner, in case of breach of the Terms by the User, reserves the right to suspend or terminate the User’s account at any time and without notice.
Each order sent constitutes an offer to purchase the products. Orders are subject to availability and to the Owner’s discretionary acceptance.
Users must select the products and complete the check-out, after having attentively verified the information in the order summary. The order is placed by the confirmation of the same, and is subject to payment of the price, taxes and shipping and further payment fees indicated in the order summary.
The Order Processing Receipt does not constitute acceptance of the order. The order shall be confirmed at the time the Order Confirmation is sent by the Owner to the email address provided by the User. The Owner reserves the right to invalidate an order by informing the User within 5 business days of placing the order, using the email address associated with their purchase, about the unavailability of one or more of the purchased products. In this case, the Owner will refund the price and the delivery costs incurred by the User.
AVAILABILITY OF PRODUCTS
Prices, descriptions, or availability of the products displayed are subject to change without notice. The photos posted are of indicative nature and do not constitute a guarantee of the quality of the products.
The Order is completed in accordance with the details specified on the order summary page and within the Order Confirmation email, subject to availability of the product ordered.
The Owner shall not be liable for damages suffered as a result of delays in delivery that are not dependent on circumstances foreseen by the parties at the time of the order confirmation.
Deliveries are made during normal business hours at the address indicated by the User and in the manner specified in the order summary.
Upon delivery, the User must verify the contents specifying any anomalies in the delivery form.
In case of failure to collect the products by the deadline set by the carrier, the products will be returned to the Owner, who will refund the purchase price but not the shipping cost. The Owner cannot be held responsible for errors in delivery due to inaccuracies or incompleteness in the completion of the purchase order by the User, for any damage occurring to products after delivery to the carrier company where arranged by the User or for delays in delivery attributable to it.
RIGHT OF CANCELLATION
In case of purchase of products or services via Insula the User has the right to terminate the contract without specifying the reason, within 14 days. The cancellation period expires after 14 days from the day in which the User or a third party – other than the carrier and designated by the User – takes physical possession of the products. To exercise the right of cancellation, the User is obliged to inform the Owner of their decision to cancel by sending an unequivocal statement to the listed contacts.
EFFECTS OF CANCELLATION
Users who correctly cancel a contract will be reimbursed by the Owner for all payments made to the Owner, including those covering the cost of delivery (except for the additional costs arising from a possible choice of a certain type of delivery other than the standard delivery offered, which would have incurred lower delivery costs) without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which the Owner is informed of the User’s decision to cancel the contract subject as provided below. Such reimbursements will be made using the same means of payment as used by the User for the initial transaction, unless the User has expressly agreed otherwise; in any event the User shall not incur any additional costs as a result of such reimbursement. The reimbursement may be withheld until the receipt of the goods, or until the User has supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest.
The User shall send back the goods and return them to the Owner without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which they have communicated the cancellation from the contract. The deadline is met if the User sends back the goods before the period of 14 days has expired. The costs of returning the goods is borne by the User but will be reimbursed as above. The User is solely liable for any diminished value of the goods resulting from the handling of the goods other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.
LIMITATIONS ON THE RIGHT OF CANCELLATION CONCERNING PRODUCTS
Damaged goods, or goods used in any way other than what is strictly necessary to establish their nature, characteristics and functioning, will not be replaced or refunded. The User shall place a copy of the delivery receipt in the package when returning the goods.
The right of cancellation does not apply to: goods that were made to the consumer’s specifications or clearly personalized or which, by their nature, are liable to deteriorate rapidly are sealed and do not lend themselves to be returned for hygienic reasons or are related to health protection and were unsealed after delivery.
The User who buys as a consumer has the right to a guarantee of conformity for the purchased goods and services. The guarantee is valid for 24 months starting with the delivery of the goods. The notice for goods that aren’t in conformity must be given to the Owner within 2 months of discovery.
To exercise the right of guarantee, the User must send an email to the Owner providing the order number and an accurate description of the defect (it is recommended that photographic material be attached).
All elements are essential and will be verified by the Owner before responding to the User.
Should the lack of conformity of the goods be established, the User has the right to obtain its repair or replacement, upon return of the defective goods to the Owner. The User also has the right to ask the Owner for a fair price reduction or termination of the contract if the repair and replacement prove impossible or prohibitively expensive, the Owner has failed to repair or replace the goods within a reasonable period, or replacement or previously carried out repairs have caused significant inconvenience to the User.
To exercise the right of guarantee and for more information regarding it, the User must contact the Owner.
