In order to exercise the right of withdrawal, the Customer must inform Ebikeforlife of their decision to withdraw within the aforementioned period of 14 working days by sending a request to the email address info@ebikeforlife.it

In order to return the product, the Customer may make use of a transporter of their choice with return costs paid by the same. In this case, after having exercised the right of withdrawal in the manner indicated in this article, the Customer must undertake to return the Product to Ebikeforlife via a transporter of their choice, under their own responsibility and at their own cost, without unjust delay and in any case within 20 calendar days from the date on which they informed Ebikeforlife of their decision to withdraw. The Product must be appropriately protected and packaged and sent to the following address: DirAuto S.r.l., Via Alessandro Manzoni 135, 25040, Berzo Inferiore, Brescia.

In the event that the Client wishes to rely on Ebikeforlife’s shipping services for the return of a Product, the rates are as follows:

  • 50 euros for the return of an Ebike;
  • 10 euros for amounts less than 99 euros.

Once Ebikeforlife has received the returned product in a perfectly integral state in its packaging, within 14 working days the same will undertake to refund the total amount due as paid by the Customer for the returned product. The refund will be paid via the same payment method used by the Customer to purchase the Product, save for agreements to the contrary between the parties.

The Product must be returned intact and fully complete, in its original packaging, accompanied with all relative accessories still attached and devoid of all signs of usage or dirt. The return procedure is applicable to the Product as a whole. It cannot therefore be applied with regards to parts and/or accessories of the Product (which do not constitute autonomous Products).

In the case that the right of withdrawal has not been exercised in compliance with the previsions of the applicable regulations, this will not result in the termination of the contract and, therefore, the Customer will not have the right to any form of refund. Ebikeforlife will, in this case, inform the Customer that their request for withdrawal has been denied. In the event that the Product has already been returned to Ebikeforlife, it will remain available for collection by the Customer, under the responsibility and at the expense of the same.

Customers are reminded that, pursuant to the Consumer Code, right of withdrawal is excluded in the case that the sale contract concerns:

  • products made to measured or clearly personalised;
  • sealed products that are not suitable for return for reasons of hygiene or regarding the safeguarding of health, or that have been opened after delivery;
  • products that risk deterioration or rapid expiry.

14. RESPONSIBILITIES

The Seller shall not be liable for any damages, losses and/or costs incurred as a result of the non-performance of the contract for the aforementioned reasons, the Customer only being entitled to a refund of the price paid.

In contracts under which the Seller is obliged to dispatch the goods, the risk of loss of or damage to the goods remains with the Seller until the Customer takes physical possession of the goods. If, however, the Customer proposes means of transport for the goods other than those proposed by the Seller, then the risk of shipment remains with the Customer, without prejudice to the Customer’s right against the carrier.

Unless otherwise agreed by the parties to the sales contract, the Seller is obliged to deliver the goods to the consumer without undue delay and at the latest within thirty days from the date of conclusion of the contract. The obligation to consign is fulfilled through transfer of material possession or control of the goods to the Customer. If the Vendor fails to fulfil its obligations within the time limit, the Customer shall request delivery within an additional time limit appropriate to the circumstances. If the additional period thus granted expires without the goods having been delivered, the Customer shall be entitled to terminate the contract.
