Pursuant to the Italian Legislative Decree 206/05 (Consumer’s Rights), you have the right to withdraw from the purchase without any penalty, within 10 (TEN) working days of receipt of the goods and upon written communication sent by e-mail to: info@autentiqua.com.

In this message, you must clearly identify the items for which you intend to exercise your right of withdrawal, including the number and date of the order, the invoice number and your bank details, with Bank code.

After receiving our authorization, you can return the goods by delivering them to the courier with the agreed terms and methods and as long as they are intact, within ten working days from the date when you received them.

In addition to the procedures described above, the right of withdrawal is correctly exercised if the following conditions are fully respected:

•  the item or items you purchased must necessarily be intact;

•  the costs of packing and shipping returning the goods will be at your expense;

•  the costs in case of loss or damage of the goods, during the return process, will also be at your expense;

•  the goods returned to our workshop will be examined to assess any damage;

•  the integrity of the returned items is an essential condition for exercising the right of withdrawal.

We therefore recommend that you put the utmost care in preparing the return package.

The right of withdrawal is limited to natural persons only. The right of withdrawal does not cover purchases made by resellers, or by any subjects who purchase for resale.

The return form must necessarily be completed and sent to AUTENTIQUA, at the e-mail address: info@autentiqua.com, within ten working days of receipt of the goods.

If the checks are successfully concluded, AUTENTIQUA will send you an email confirming the acceptance of the returned items.

Once all the above terms and conditions have been correctly fulfilled and verified, the reimbursement procedure will be initiated promptly.

If the terms and conditions for exercising the right of withdrawal are not observed, you will not be entitled to a refund of the amounts already paid to AUTENTIQUA. In this case, you can still request at your expense that the goods are shipped back to you in the state in which they were returned. Otherwise, AUTENTIQUA may keep the goods, in addition to the sum initially paid for their purchase.
