9. Right to withdraw
Under the combined provisions of articles 64 et seq. of the Consumer Protection Law (Law 2005/206) and the provisions of Law 21, 21st February 2014, the customer is entitled to withdraw from the purchase contract for any reason, without explanation and without penalty. This right cannot be exercised for the categories of goods and services expressly specified in article 59 of law 21, 21st February 2014. These include, by way of example: art. 59 letter c) the supply of goods that are clearly customised or made to measure; art. 59 letter d) the supply of goods liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly; art. 59 letter e) the supply of sealed goods that do not lend themselves to being returned for reasons of health or hygiene whose seal was broken after delivery; art. 59 letter f ) the supply of goods which by nature are inseparably mixed with other items after delivery; art. 59 letter g) the supply of alcoholic beverages, whose price was agreed when the contract of sale was signed and whose delivery may only take place after thirty days and whose actual value depends on market fluctuations that are not under the control of the business.
To exercise this right, the Customer must notify Sarchio within 14 working days of the date of receipt of goods. This notification must be sent by registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt, addressed to:
Via dei Barrocciai, 42
41012 Carpi (MO)
or by telegram or certified mail (PEC: email@example.com) within the above stated period of 14 days, followed by confirmation by registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt, within the following 48 (forty eight) hours.
The notice of withdrawal must specify the intention to withdraw from the Purchase and the Product or Products that the withdrawal applies to, attaching a copy of the purchase invoice.
After receiving the notification of withdrawal, Sarchio will send the Customer the “Authorisation to Return” via E-Mail. The Product/s must be returned to our warehouse within 10 days of the authorisation.
Sarchio invites Customers to check that any product/s to be returned is/are intact and are in its/their original condition, including the original packaging, complete with all parts (including packaging and documentation) before returning it/them.
In order to facilitate the Customer’s right to withdraw, Sarchio provides a special ‘notification of withdrawal’ form for customers, that can be downloaded directly from the website.
The right to withdraw is subject to the following terms and conditions:
- The right to withdraw applies to the product purchased in its entirety; it is not possible to exercise said right for only part of the product purchased;
- The law states that the cost of shipping of returned goods are at the Customer’s expense;
- The Customer retains liability for the shipment until we confirm it has been received at our warehouse;
- Sarchio is not liable in case of uninsured shipments of products that are damaged, stolen or lost;
- Sarchio will notify the Customer should the goods be damaged in transit (within 5 working days of receiving the goods at its warehouse) so the Customer can notify his chosen courier of the damage and thus obtain a refund for the value of the item (if covered by insurance). In this case, the Customer may decide to have the product returned and thus cancel the request to withdraw;
- The right of withdrawal may not be exercised for perishable goods whose expiry date is within 10 days or less, or for products that have not been stored at the correct temperature adversely affecting the quality of the product.
If the right of withdrawal has been exercised in accordance with said article 64 et seq., Sarchio will refund the Customer the full amount paid, inclusive of Delivery Charges, within 14 (fourteen) calendar days from the receipt of the notification of withdrawal, without prejudice to Sarchio’s right to suspend payment of the refund until the goods are actually received. The refund will be made using the same method of payment used by the Customer, unless he has expressly required a different method. For bank transfers or cash on delivery, the Customer must provide the bank details for the refund (account holder, name and address of the Bank and IBAN). The amount of the refund will be net of any charges for the Restitution of the Products, which remain at the Customer’s expense.
The Customer loses all right to withdraw in case of failure to comply with the essential condition of the item being intact (packaging and/or contents), should Sarchio ascertain:
- that the original outer and / or inner packaging, containing the product purchased, is missing
- that the product was damaged due to any other cause than transport.
In case of loss of the right of withdrawal, Sarchio will return the goods purchased to the Customer and charge for shipping. The right of withdrawal may not be exercised by business customers.

Statutory guarantees apply to the Products sold, as stipulated by articles 129, 130 and 132 of the Consumer Protection Law. The Customer has the right to demand the conformity of the product be reinstated, if he so chooses and provided the type of Product permits it, without charge, by repairing or replacing it, or an appropriate reduction in price or the withdrawal from the contract. The Customer loses said rights if he fails to notify Sarchio of the non conformity within two months of the discovery of the fault, provided it is not a perishable Product or has an earlier expiry date, in which case the fault must be notified within said expiry date.
The guarantee of the conformity and quality of the goods delivered, offered by Sarchio, is strictly limited to Customer reimbursement in the form of a refund, and excludes any other form of indemnity.
