How do I exercise the right of withdrawal?

All purchases made by consumers on olivyou.com are subject to the discipline of Legislative Decree 206 of 2005 (Consumer Code), which guarantees for this category of customers the right of withdrawal. Exercise of this right is regulated as follows:

The products returned must be intact, still sealed if possible, in their original packaging: for products damaged or altered by the Consumer, it will not be possible to exercise the right of withdrawal.
This right is reserved for individuals acting for purposes unrelated to entrepreneurial, commercial, craft or professional activities: it therefore excludes retailers, professionals, entrepreneurs and their intermediaries.
To exercise this right, the Consumer may:

Send an email or fax or registered letter within 14 (fourteen) days from the date of receipt of the products to Customer Service (servizioclienti@olivyou.com), indicating:

  • invoice number
  • order number
  • order date
  • the product or products for which they intend to exercise the right of withdrawal, indicating the item code for each one
  • their bank details (IBAN code) and/or other data and information necessary for refunding purposes

wait for an e-mail from the Customer Service authorizing the return with the Return Authorization Code (CAR).

Within 15 days from the receipt of the e-mail authorizing the return, send the products at their own expense to the following address:

OLIVYOU c/o FIEGE LOGISTICS ITALIA S.p.A.
Via Juan Manuel Fangio, 11
20020 Lainate (MI), Italy

Place the obtained Return Authorization Code (CAR) in a clearly visible position on the shipped packages.

Once the items are delivered to the warehouse, they be examined to check for any damage or tampering (substantial integrity of the returned goods is an essential condition for the proper exercise of the right of withdrawal).

If this verification is successful, we will refund the items subject to the right of withdrawal in the days immediately following and, in any case, within 14 working days of receipt of the goods. This refund does not include the shipping costs incurred by the Consumer to return goods, in accordance with the discipline provided by the Consumer Code.

We strongly recommend to use a courier that allows shipment tracking. It is understood that OlivYou will not proceed to refund the goods subject to withdrawal if it does not receive the relevant delivery.

It should be noted that, in the case of promotion purchases, where the purchase of an item is combined with another item sold at a minimum price or supplied free of charge, the right of withdrawal will be legitimately exercised with the return of both goods purchased, given the incidental nature of the promotional item with respect to the first one.

Attention:
For more information on the right of withdrawal and how to exercise it, we recommend you to carefully read Section 10 of the general sales conditions, which also includes a form that can be used to exercise the right of withdrawal.
