We remind you that the object of the order will remain available at the courier’s warehouse for 5 working days from the second delivery attempt.

- 8 – Availability of products
If the product that the user intends to order is no longer available, the user will be technically prevented from placing the order on the Glix Atelier Store. Furthermore, in a few exceptional and unpredictable cases, a product indicated on the site as available may be no longer available after placing the order; in this case, the contract between the user and Glix Atelier will not be concluded and the user will be notified about it; the product, therefore, will not be included in the Shipping Confirmation Email that will be sent to the user. In the event that the payment is made before the confirmation of the unavailability of the Product (eg via PayPal), Glix Atelier will refund the sums paid by the user as soon as possible and in any case within thirty days from the communication by Glix Atelier of the unavailability of the Product.
- 9 – Compatibility, product information
The user is asked to check, when placing the order, that the products purchased are compatible with the use to which the user intends to use them. We invite the user to use Glix Atelier Store as the ultimate point of reference when verifying compatibility. In the event of a discrepancy between the contents of Glix Atelier Store and any other site (or any other source of information), the compatibility of the products as indicated on the Glix Atelier Store at the time of purchase will prevail. The user is asked to keep in mind that, due to the limitations of reproducing the images of the products on the screen, the exact color, size and design of the same on the screen may differ from the actual characteristics of the products.
Without prejudice to the above, if the products that the user has received do not correspond to those ordered, or if the delivery is incomplete or if there have been damage in transport, we invite the user, for assistance, to contact firstname.lastname@example.org without delay, or Glix Atelier by phone within the terms of the law.
- 10 – Ownership of products
The ownership of the products, and the related risk, are transferred from Glix Atelier to the user upon receipt of the products by the latter.
- 11 – Withdrawal, return and refund
Right of withdrawal.
The user has 14 (fourteen) calendar days to withdraw from the contract with Glix Atelier in relation to the item (s) purchased on Glix Atelier Store without providing any explanation, with an unequivocal statement, by registered mail or by email. The period of 14 (fourteen) calendar days starts from the moment of receipt of the item purchased on Glix Atelier Store or, in the case of a contract for the delivery of more than one item, from the moment of receipt of the last article of that contract. In order to respect the deadline of 14 (fourteen) days, the date on which the declaration of withdrawal is sent by the user will prevail. The declaration must be sent to: Glix Atelier, via Carlo Farini 38, 20159 Milan or via email to: email@example.com
Legal consequences of withdrawal
In case of withdrawal, the products received must be returned within 14 (fourteen) calendar days, in perfect condition. Shipping costs are the responsibility of the user. The refund of the amount paid by the user (including the initial delivery costs) will be made by Glix Atelier within 14 (fourteen) calendar days from receipt of the products to be returned by the user, using the same payment method used by the latter when placing the order. The period of 14 (fourteen) calendar days starts, for the user, from the time of sending the declaration of withdrawal, while, for Glix Atelier, this period starts from the receipt of the returned products. The user can assert his right to reimbursement only after Glix Atelier has received the returned item or in any case if he is able to provide proof of having returned the item within the period of 14 (fourteen ) expected days.
Exceptions to the exercise of the right of withdrawal within the deadline.
The right of withdrawal is not recognized for items produced according to the specifications provided by the user or clearly adapted to his personal needs.
Therefore, we remind you that when the user purchases a set of jewelry and intends to return one or more products for a refund, it is necessary to return the entire set and it will therefore not be possible to partially withdraw from the order in order to return only some of the products made part of the set.
Glix Atelier Policy on returns and disputes
The costs of the return shipment will be charged to the user.
Glix Atelier reserves the right to request compensation for damage to the user for returned products that are damaged or used.
Once Glix Atelier has received and approved the returned items, it will confirm receipt of the same to the user via email, also providing for the refund, which will be confirmed by email. Glix Atelier will refund, indicatively, within thirty (30) days of receiving the email sent by the user, except for the Christmas period and other peak periods.
Glix Atelier may also offer the user, at his choice, the following options as an alternative to the right to reimbursement:
• 1) the user may specifically authorize Glix Atelier to replace the original product with another product; or
• 2) the user may specifically authorize Glix Atelier to issue a voucher. The exercise of these rights is optional and is subject to the discretion and express consent of the user.
- 12 – Guarantees and legal rights
The user will be covered by a legal guarantee for items purchased that prove to be defective. In such cases, the user may • 1. request the repair or replacement of the product (at its discretion, unless such remedies are excessively burdensome or impossible for Glix Atelier),
• 2. if both of the aforementioned primary remedies prove excessively burdensome or impossible for Glix Atelier, the user may ask to terminate the contract (with return of the purchase price by Glix Atelier, subject to the return of the products by the user ) or the reduction of the purchase price;
The purchased item is free from significant defects if, at the time of delivery, it has the agreed quality. To the extent that no specific quality has been agreed between the parties, the purchased item is considered free from significant defects if:
1. is suitable for the use for which it is intended under the contract; and / or
2. it is suitable for the normal use for which it is intended and its quality is that normally found in articles of the same type, and the buyer can expect this quality given the type of article.
The term “quality” includes those characteristics that the buyer can expect based on the declarations on the specific characteristics of the purchased item, made publicly by the seller, the manufacturer or his representative (by way of example but not limited to: on advertising or identification material ), except in the case in which the seller was not aware of the declaration and was not even required to be aware of it, or unless, at the time of stipulation of the contract, the quality has been changed but it is always the same level, or was not relevant to the decision to purchase the item.
Glix Atelier will be responsible for all expenses necessary to remedy the defect; Glix Atelier may refuse to proceed with the type of remedy chosen by the user, if this type of remedy is only possible for a disproportionate expense. In this context, in particular, by way of example but not limited to, the value of the item free from defects, the extent of the defect and the possibility of resorting to alternative remedies without causing substantial damage to the user must be taken into account. In this case, the dispute will be restricted to the alternative remedy; and Glix Atelier will also have the right to refuse the alternative type of remedy, without prejudice to the requirements referred to in point 1 above. If Glix Atelier supplies, in order to remedy a user’s request for a defective product, a product free from defects, Glix Atelier itself may request the return of the defective product.
The user has the right to contest the defect of the purchased product only if he reports the defect to Glix Atelier immediately after having detected it, or immediately after it should reasonably have been detected. Reports of defects made within one month of their discovery are considered timely.
Users are required to keep the order / invoice confirmation (and transmit it to any recipient of a product as a gift) as original proof of purchase of the product which must be attached in order to activate the legal guarantee.
