The distance selling service regulated by the General Terms is reserved exclusively to consumers (hereinafter referred to as “ Customers” or “Customer” as the case may be); 'consumers' means natural persons, aged over 18, acting for purposes extraneous to their commercial, business, artisan or professional activity.
1.3. The language used for concluding sale contracts on this Website is Italian or English.
1.4. Customers must carefully read the General Terms, available on the Website, in order to be aware of them, save them and possibly print them for retention.

The creation of a personal account on the Website is at Customer’s exclusive discretion. Customer simply needs to fill in the electronic forms on the Website, ensuring that his or her personal data are correctly entered as requested in the electronic registration forms on the "Register" page. The Customer is fully responsible for the truthfulness and correctness of the personal data entered and released during the registration procedure. Once registered on the Website, the Customer may place an order, access his order history, change the registration data entered and/or communicate a different delivery and/or billing address from the one(s) indicated during registration.
Without prejudice to the following paragraphs, Customer may proceed with the purchase of Products, as defined below, after having entered his/her personal data (such as, for example, name, delivery address and email address) or, if he/she is already registered on the Website, by accessing (or logging in) to his/her personal account by entering his/her authentication credentials.
3.2. The information on products present on the Website does not constitute an offer to the public by Euroitalia S.r.l. but only an invitation to order.
Therefore, with a view to entering into a valid sale contract, the Customer must send an order to Euroitalia S.r.l. containing the details of the products it intends to purchase, with the respective price.
3.3 . The transmission of the order proposal constitutes a purchase offer for the selected Product, regulated by these General Terms and binding for the customer (subject to the right of withdrawal).

3.7 . The contract between Euroitalia S.r.l. and the Customer is concluded when the Customer receives confirmation from Euroitalia S.r.l. that the order proposal has been accepted by way of the procedure envisaged on the Website (the “Order Confirmation”).

(I) lack of availability of the Products
(II) if the payment made by the Customer is not successful (by way of example, if the purchase price is not charged to the Customer's credit card)
(III) if there is a report, or a suspicion, of fraudulent or illegal activity, therein including a suspicion that the purchases are made for the purpose of resale;
(IV) if the Customer fails to fulfil its obligations deriving from a previous contract entered into with Euroitalia S.r.l..
In any case, Euroitalia S.r.l. may reject an order if the quantity of ordered Products appears, at its sole discretion, to be excessive.
3.9. If one or more ordered Products are unavailable, the Customer will be notified by e-mail. In that case, the order proposal will be cancelled or accepted only for the available Products. In the event of partial acceptance, the Customer must pay only the price relating to the available Products (if the payment is made by credit card, the Customer will only be charged the amount corresponding to the available Products).

Euroitalia S.r.l. may not in any case be held liable towards the Customer due to the lack of availability of a Product.

If the Customer fails to send the information or additional documentation requested, Euroitalia S.r.l. reserves the right not to accept the order or to withdraw from the finalised purchase contract if the failure to send the requested information prevents the order or the contract from being executed, giving simultaneous motivated communication thereof to the Customer at the email address indicated by the latter.

The period for making the refund will commence from the contract termination date.
8.4. The shipment is, in general, made for a consideration and the costs are borne by the Customer, unless otherwise agreed in the Product Specifications or in other parts of the Website.
The amount of shipping costs due from the Customer in relation to a specific order will be expressly indicated separately (in Euros and including VAT) in the order summary and, in any case, before the Customer sends the same, as well as in the order confirmation email.

8.6 . After the shipment of the order by Euroitalia S.r.l., the carrier will send to the Customer a communication containing the tracking number and/or the link to track the delivery with the possibility of submitting additional instructions for circumstances where the recipient is out and to manage undelivered products.

(I) that the number of delivered packages corresponds to that indicated in the delivery note;

9.1. The Products purchased on the Website are delivered using special packaging that guarantees high quality standards so that the products remain intact during shipments.
10. Right of withdrawal
10.1. The right of withdrawal is EXCLUDED:
- in the case of the supply of sealed goods that are not suitable to be returned for hygienic or health protection reasons and have been opened after delivery, such as, by way of example and not limited to, fragrances and/or other cosmetic products that the Customer has opened after delivery, removing the appropriate seal, and/or used (pursuant to Article 59, paragraph 1, letter e), Consumer Code);
- in the case of orders relating to personalised Products, such as, by way of example but not limited to, Products on which the Customer's initials are engraved (in accordance with the provisions of Article 59, paragraph 1, letter c), Consumer Code).
10.2 . Besides the cases outlined below, and in accordance with Article 52 of the Consumer Code, the Customer may withdraw from the contract for all or part of the Products ordered (in the case of multiple orders) and in any case on the Products in their entirety, without specifying the reason, within 14 (fourteen) days from the date on which the Customer (or his/her representative authorised to receive the Product) materially enters into possession of the Product itself.
10.3 . In order to exercise the right of withdrawal, the Customer shall inform Euroitalia S.r.l. by filling in the appropriate electronic form available on the “Contact Us” page of the website.
Customer Services will follow up the withdrawal request by providing to the Customer- via e-mail - the instructions for returning the goods, providing, for that purpose (in compliance with Article 49 of the Consumer Code) any standard form or label to be completed and included in the package.
The shipment must be made by and not beyond 14 (fourteen) days from the date of receipt of the Customer Service communication and of the above-mentioned forms.
The costs for returning the Product to Euroitalia S.r.l. are borne by the Customer.
10.4. The Products in relation to which the Customer has exercised the right of withdrawal must be, for hygiene reasons, intact and unused. Those Products must be returned in their original packaging, complete in all their parts (therein including the packaging and any accessory documentation which forms an integral part of the product, if present).
10.5. Upon receipt of the Products for which the Customer has withdrawn, Euroitalia S.r.l. will verify their integrity. If the returned Product is found to be damaged during transportation, Eurotalia S.r.l. must only communicate the event to the Customer to allow it to file a report promptly with the courier chosen by it, against which (and/or the respective insurance company) it must take recourse.
10.6. Euroitalia S.r.l. is not liable in any way for damages or theft or loss of products being returned; any respective risk is therefore borne exclusively by the Customer which must choose, upon returning the goods, the most suitable delivery method to safeguard its interests.
10.7. Having received the return and checked the integrity of the product as well as its lack of use by the Customer, Euroitalia S.r.l. will refund the sums paid for the purchase, including delivery costs (save what is specified at paragraph 10.8 below), without undue delay, and in any case within and not later the terms set out in the Consumer Code, provided that the conditions laid down in this Article 10 are met. The refund may be made by reversing the amount charged on the payment method used for the purchase in conformity with the related instructions and bank details which will be indicated by the Customer itself. If the purchase was made using a discount code, the refund will relate only to the sum actually paid, and the amount of the discount will not be refunded.
10.8. For partial withdrawal from multiple orders (i.e. withdrawal limited to only one or more Products, but not to all Products ordered), the shipping costs will not be refunded as their amount does not depend on the number of products included in the order or the weight of the same.
10.9. In the event of partial withdrawal, if, by virtue of the withdrawal, the amount actually paid by the Customer (having deducted the amount of the Products for which the withdrawal has been exercised and which is therefore subject to reimbursement) drops below the threshold allowing the Customer to obtain free shipment, the standard shipping costs will be charged to the Customer and, consequently, deducted from the refund amount.
11. Method of storing product. Allergic Reactions
11.1. The Products must be stored in a dry environment, away from heat sources and never exposed directly to sunlight.
11.2. The marketed cosmetic products are compliant with European Regulation 1223/2009 and are carefully controlled. However, situations of subjective intolerance to ingredients contained in the cosmetic products which may cause allergic reactions and irritations in certain persons cannot be excluded. Euroitalia S.r.l. is willing to respond to information requests and to receive reports of intolerances or allergies, before or after the purchase, in order to best support its Customers in the choice of products or in returning the same.
12. Product replacements

13.2. For products opened after delivery, the conformity of the product is calculated with reference to the specific PAO ( period after opening) for each type of product, clearly indicated on the packaging.
13.3 . For products that specify a specific expiry date on the packaging, that information is indicative of the period within which the product maintains its conformity with respect to the use for which it is intended and, if it is less than two years, it accordingly limits the term for exercising warranty actions in accordance with Articles 128-132 et seq. of the Consumer Code.
13.4. The defect deriving from improper use of the product without following the instructions for use is not defined as a “defect of conformity”.
13.5. In any case, if a Product sold by Euroitalia S.r.l. presents a manufacturing defect or any alleged defect of conformity the Customer must immediately contact assistance.
13.6. In accordance with Article 130 of the Consumer Code, the Customer is entitled to obtain:
a) the restoration of conformity of the good by way of replacement (excluding the repair in accordance with Article 130, paragraph 4 of the Consumer Code) of the Product to the conditions provided by law, with no cost charged to it, or,
b) if that replacement is not possible (for example, due to lack of stocks of the Product), the Customer, in accordance with the provisions of Article 130, paragraph 7 of the Consumer Code, may obtain a congruous reduction of the price of the Products or
c) the contract termination.
13.7. If the Customer requests, in the terms indicated in this article, the replacement of the Product due to a defect of conformity, the delivery costs relating to the return to Euroitalia S.r.l. of the Product to be replaced, along with all costs relating to the delivery to the Customer of the replaced Product, are borne by Euroitalia S.r.l., notwithstanding that the burden to advance those costs for the return of the good so that the appropriate verifications may be carried out is borne by the Customer.
13.8 . The replacement of the Product due to a defect of conformity of the same will in any case be subject to the verification by Euroitalia S.r.l. of respect by the Customer of the correct methods of use and storage of the Product.
