This shall also entail no penalties. For "consumer", it is intended for those who do not purchase for business or professional reasons and therefore without the insertion of VAT IDs in the order form.

6.2 The right of withdrawal can include all purchased goods (complete withdrawal) or only part of them (partial withdrawal).

6.3 In order to exercise the right of withdrawal, Clients shall send a withdrawal communication within 14 (fourteen) days starting from the day the products are physically delivered to a Client or to a Consignee acting on behalf of the Client, and either subject signs the delivery note thereby accepting the goods. The Client is free to withdraw in his own words, provided his/her statement describing his/her decision to withdraw is unequivocal. The withdrawal information should be sent as follows, at the Client's discretion:

Registered post to: ROUND ANIMALS DESIGN, via Poggibonsi, 7 – 20146 Milano, Italy
email:
info@roundanimals.com

6.4 The right of withdrawal shall not be applicable to the supply of goods made to the consumer’s specifications, i.e., non- prefabricated goods made on the basis of an individual choice of or decision by the consumer. If the right of withdrawal is not applicable on the products on sale, the Site shall show the phrase "right of withdrawal not applicable" in the product data sheet, in the page of the purchase procedure or in the order confirmation sent via email. Clients are kindly invited to always check the presence of this phrase.

The reimbursement will be carried out using the same means of payment as the Client used for the initial transaction, without undue delay and, in any event, not later than 14 (fourteen) days from from the day on which we are informed about the Client's decision to withdraw from his/her contract. The Supplier may withhold reimbursement until the goods are received back or the Client has supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest. 
The Client will have to bear the direct cost of returning the goods.

6.7 The goods shall be returned in resalable conditions, preferably their original packaging and together with all accessories. Clients are liable for any diminished value of the goods when these are handled differently from the provided instructions regarding verification of an item's nature, features and function. Should this happen, the Seller reserves the right to require a refund from the user due to the decrease in value of the product. Therefore, even if the law in force does not oblige the Buyer to purchase an insurance policy on the goods returned, when exercising the right to withdrawal, may we suggest that Clients acquire one.

6.8 Purchase order cancellation.

Clients wishing to cancel their Purchase Order shall proceed within 24 (twenty four) hours from the order issue date. Later Clients will be allowed to cancel only those orders waiting for payment.

Should a buyer have already paid for the unavailable item, ROUND ANIMALS DESIGN shall refund the sum paid by the buyer, including shipping costs, within 10 (ten) days starting from the date the buyer receives the communication advising the unavailability of the purchased product. The buyer shall be informed by email about the exact amount refunded. This amount will be credited to the buyer using the same payment method chosen by the Client to perform the relevant purchase, or via bank transfer. ROUND ANIMALS DESIGN shall not be liable for any delays in the crediting of refunded sums that are due to the banking houses used by buyers to perform payment. In any case, the value date of the refund shall be the same of the payment, in order to further protect the buyer.
