Pursuant to Legislative Decree no. 206/2005, the “Consumer Code”, and any subsequent amendments, the customer, identified by law as a consumer, is able to exercise their right to cancel an order without being penalised or having to provide any reasons, within 14 (fourteen) days. It should be noted that the physical person making purchases “for purposes that are not related to business or professional activities” is considered to be a consumer. Legal and physical persons who make purchases for business purposes therefore do not have the right to cancel their order. It goes without saying that if the Customer includes a VAT number when registering their tax details, they will automatically qualify as a legal person.
In order to exercise their right to cancel, the Customer must communicate their decision to terminate their contract in writing, either by sending a letter in the post (to be sent to the registered offices of Alessandro Di Marco srl Via F. Ferrucci no. 331 – 59100 Prato) or e-mail (to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org). To do this, the Customer can use the Returns Form, which can be downloaded from the website www.alessandrodimarco.com in the returns section, or it can be requested from our Customer Care team. However, in order to be able to respect the cancellation deadline, it is not obligatory for the Customer to use this form. It is enough to send written notification of their intention to exercise their right to cancel before the cancellation period expires.
It should be noted that the right to cancel can be validly exercised only if the products purchased are returned intact in their original packaging, and come complete with all of their parts (including any packing materials or accessories) in the same state they were received in.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU CANCEL
The Customer terminating the contract will be refunded all payments that they have paid to us, including any shipping costs incurred for sending their purchased items (except for additional costs resulting from choosing a different shipping option from the standard one offered by Alessandro Di Marco srl), without undue delay and no later than 14 (fourteen) days of Alessandro Di Marco srl receiving the items. These refunds will be paid using the same payment method used by the Customer for the initial transaction, unless they have expressly arranged for another method to be used; in any case, they will not bear any costs as a consequence of this refund. We kindly ask Customers to send their items to Alessandro Di Marco srl (Via F. Ferrucci no. 331 – 59100 Prato) without undue delay and within 14 (fourteen) days of informing Alessandro Di Marco srl of the termination of their contract. The deadline has been met if the Customer returns their items before a period of 14 (fourteen) days has passed.
The direct costs of returning items will be borne by the Customer. They are also solely responsible for any decrease in value of their items caused by them being handled in a manner other than that necessary for ascertaining the nature, characteristics, and function of the items.
Pursuant to article 130 of the Consumer Code, if purchased products do not comply with the contract of sale, the Customer has the right to get their purchased product repaired or exchanged, or, alternatively, to receive a suitable reduction in its price, or to dissolve the purchase agreement.
Pursuant to article 132, paragraph 2 of the Consumer Code, this guarantee comes into effect when a fault in the conformity of an item appears within 2 (two) years of it being delivered.
The Customer must report in writing, within the deadline, the non-conformity of their purchased product within 2 (two) months of discovering the defect. This should be sent to the registered offices of Alessandro Di Marco srl, and according to the methods described in detail on the Returns Form, which can be requested from the offices of Alessandro Di Marco srl or downloaded from the website www.alessandrodimarco.it (the Information section).
INVALIDITY OF CANCELLATION
If the cancellation has not been carried out in accordance with the previsions set out by its applicable regulations, the cancellation will not be considered valid and, consequently, you will not have the right to be refunded the Amount paid. In this case, ADM will inform the Customer in good time. If it has already been sent back to ADM, the Product will remain at ADM for the Customer to collect, the costs and responsibility for which are to be borne by the Customer him or herself.

SOURCE OF DATA AND TYPE OF DATA PROCESSED
The personal data processed by ADM are provided directly and voluntarily by the Website’s users when they register in order to access the services it offers (for example, the online-shop service or signing up to the newsletter). By personal data, we mean: name, surname, e-mail address, shipping address, tax code and/or VAT number, and other optional pieces of information.
The information collected by cookies can also be used to create a “profile” of the interests exhibited by the user whilst browsing, and, as a consequence, they can be used to make browsing on the Website more efficient.

These data will also be processed in order to adhere to obligations prescribed by laws, regulations, and EU legislation, as well as those prescribed by guidelines prepared by supervisory bodies and authorities.
The processing of data is carried out with the aid of manual and computerised tools, for which ADM has adopted adequate security measures in order to guarantee the integrity and confidentiality of data.
The disclosure of data is optional, however, if you do not disclose any personal data that may be requested for implementing a contractual relationship, it may not be possible for ADM to establish and/or proceed with, in whole or in part, a contractual relationship, or to deliver items that have been ordered.
SCOPE OF COMMUNICATION AND DISTRIBUTION
Types of individuals that may have access to data:
Personal data can be shared with external companies that may be used by ADM for managing their contractual relationships with their customers, or for their own organisational needs and those of the business:
1) our sales network, as well as call centres, agencies, and/or agents charged with promoting goods and services offered by ADM;
2) individuals involved in managing payment systems;
3) banks, financial institutions, and insurance companies;

Their personal data will also be accessible to employees and collaborators, which may also be external ones, who are specifically tasked with processing them (with selected levels of access depending on their positions). These individuals belong to the central services and offices and/or the sales network of ADM, and carry out technical tasks in order to support the company. A list of external companies that operate as data processors, or information about those that operate completely independently as separate data controllers, will be kept up-to-date at the Privacy Office of ADM, and they will be made available at ADM’s registered offices.
