To sales contracts stipulated outside of commercial premises, the rules provided for by Legislative Decree no. 206 of 6 September 2005 (Consumer Code) and, where applicable, by the rules of Legislative Decree no. 70 of 09/04/2003, which provide for the possibility for the purchaser to exercise the right of withdrawal, i.e. to return the purchased goods to the seller and obtain a consequent refund of the purchase price, apply.

These rules apply to natural persons, i.e. consumers, who act for purposes that can be considered unrelated to their business activity, i.e. they do not make the purchase by indicating a VAT number in the order form. Therefore, purchases made by retailers and companies are excluded from the right of withdrawal. The consumer has the right, within a period of 10 working days from receipt of the goods, to exercise the right of withdrawal.

Methods of withdrawal.

To exercise the right of withdrawal, without penalty and without specifying the reason, the purchaser must send velvet-toys a communication in which he declares his willingness to exercise this right within 14 working days from the date of receipt of the goods. Such communication must be sent by pec to the following address: cmgcomunicazione@pec.it or by e-mail to the following address: info@velvet-toys.com. 

In the request, which must be signed and dated by the purchaser, it is necessary to indicate the invoice number, the list of items to be returned and the bank details on which to obtain the refund.

Velvet-toys Customer Service will provide the consumer with the RMA number (Return Authorization Code).

The consumer must return the purchased products to velvet-toys only and exclusively at the following address: velvet-toys c/o New Playing - Via Rosina Anselmi, 10 - 95122 CATANIA (CT), within ten (10) working days from receipt of the goods. In case of exercise of the right of withdrawal, the customer-consumer must store the goods, complete with any accessories, in their original packaging. This wrapping must then be packed in such a way as to protect it from any damage, writing or alteration. Finally, the RMA number and the order number must be clearly visible on the packages.

velvet-toys reserves the right to refuse the goods received in the event of non-compliance with the above mentioned return procedure.
