The Customer expressly acknowledges that the indication of a VAT number in the purchase order automatically qualifies him/her as a company/self-employed person - therefore, the rules contained in the Consumer Code (Legislative Decree 206/2005) shall not be applied to such transactions; instead, reference shall be made to the provisions of the Civil Code, articles 1490 et seq. on sales contracts.
All products purchased on Costruire Audio are covered by warranty, as governed by D. Lgs. n. 206/2005 (Consumer Code) and the Civil Code, in the part devoted to the contract of sale, at Articles. 1490 et seq.
What is the warranty?
Warranty means the commitment made by Costruire Audio to the customer to repair or replace free of charge and within a reasonable period of time the products or components of the equipment that have defects of conformity in workmanship or material. If the repair or replacement of the good should be excessively expensive or problematic, the customer can obtain a price reduction or termination of the contract. In determining the amount of the price reduction or the amount to which the customer is entitled in such cases, the use made of the product shall be taken into account.
Please note that minor defects for which repair or replacement is not possible or is too costly do not entitle you to cancel the contract.
If the product you have purchased is defective, please contact us immediately so that we can find the solution that best suits your needs.
Different customers, different ways to exercise the warranty
For consumers - i.e. "natural persons acting for purposes which are outside their trade, business or profession" (art. 3, paragraph 1, letter a) of Legislative Decree 206/2005) - the warranty extends to two years after delivery of the goods.
To exercise your right, you must notify us of the lack of conformity that you have found within and no later than 60 (sixty) days from discovery.
For the first six months after delivery of the product, the conformity defect is presumed to have existed from the outset, so the application of the guarantee is automatic. From the seventh month until the end of the two-year period, however, the lack of conformity must be demonstrated by means of an expert's report at your expense.
The consumer, in any case, is entitled to the rights provided for by the Consumer Code articles 128 - 135, which are not modified by this guarantee.
To those who, however, buy a product on Costruire Audio for purposes related to their business or professional activity - communicating, therefore, the VAT number and data of their business - will be applied the provisions of the Civil Code on contracts of sale, to articles 1490 et seq.
The warranty, therefore, extends to 12 (twelve) months following delivery of the goods, while notification of the lack of conformity must be made within 8 (eight) days of discovery.
In any case, whether you are a consumer, a business or a professional, you must communicate the lack of conformity that you have found to:

3. Right of withdrawal
Purchases made on the Costruire Audio website are regulated by Italian legislation on distance contracts and purchases outside commercial premises, which can be found in Legislative Decree no. 206/2005, better known as the Consumer Code.
We undertake to refund the full amount as soon as possible and in any case within the legal term of 14 (fourteen) days from the date on which we receive the goods back.
The consumer has the right to withdraw from the contract, without giving reasons, within 14 days. The withdrawal period expires after 14 days from the day on which you or a third party, other than the carrier and designated by you, acquires physical possession of the goods.
In order to exercise your right of withdrawal, you must inform us (insert your name, geographical address and, if available, your telephone number and e-mail address) of your decision to withdraw from this contract by means of an explicit statement (e.g. letter sent by post, fax or e-mail). In order to comply with the withdrawal period, it shall be sufficient for you to send the communication concerning the exercise of the right of withdrawal before the end of the withdrawal period.
Effects of withdrawal
If you withdraw from this contract, we shall refund all payments you have made to us, including the costs of delivery (except for additional costs resulting from your choosing a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us), without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which we are informed of your decision to withdraw from this contract.
Such refunds will be made using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless we have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any costs as a result of such refund. The refund may be suspended until you have received the goods or until you have proved that you have sent the goods back, whichever is the earlier.

"You shall bear the costs of returning the goods.",
The consumer is only liable for any diminished value of the goods resulting from the handling of the goods other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.
In these cases, however, we always advise you to contact us, to provide you with further information and to find together the best solution for the return of the goods, including through our couriers.

Consumer or non-consumer?
The protection of the Consumer Code applies to consumers or users, i.e. to "natural persons acting for purposes which are outside their trade, business or profession" (art. 3, paragraph 1, letter a) of Legislative Decree 206/2005). The right of withdrawal as presented here, therefore, cannot be exercised by legal persons and natural persons acting for purposes related to a commercial and/or professional activity. Purchases made by resellers or by persons who in any capacity purchase for resale to third parties are also excluded.
What if we have made a mistake?
If you have received an item that you did not want because of an error on our part, the right of withdrawal remains unaffected, but obviously the shipping costs for returning the goods will be borne by us. Please contact us to find the simplest and quickest solution.
Should you receive damaged goods, please let us know within 5 (five) working days by email or telephone, quoting "damaged items" in the subject line of the email, or by telephone.
