A password is associated to the credit card that is only known to the card holder.

05 Postal costs

06 Right of withdrawal

The Customer has the right to withdraw from the Deed of Sale within 30 days from the date the contracted Products have been received.
The right to withdrawal is exercised using the specific “Right of Withdrawal” form which is included with the Products.
The right of withdrawal form must be sent to Compar S.p.A. in one of the following ways:
a) Fax: number +39 049 8991010, for the attention of the Customer Service Office.
b) Email: address customerservice_eu@bata.com.

As soon as Compar S.p.A. receives the notification from the Customer who has exercised their right of withdrawal, they will send confirmation that the form has been received by email or text.

A Customer who exercises their right of withdrawal must return:
- An undamaged and unused Product in its original undamaged packaging.
- The tax document (tax receipt).
- The original copy of the right of withdrawal form (completely filled in), which has already been sent by fax or email to Compar S.p.A. at the following address: Compar S.p.A. - EUROWEB - via Alessandro Volta 6, 35010 Limena, Padua, Italy.
The Products must be returned within 40 days from the date the withdrawal is notified. The withdrawal notification date is the date that the form was sent by fax or email.
The Customer is responsible for the costs for returning the Products to Compar S.p.A. Therefore the Shipment Costs and any other additional costs for returning the Products are entirely the Customer’s responsibility.
Compar S.p.A. will refund the Customer only for the Price and Shipment Costs (the costs sustained by the Customer to receive the Products at the given address, excluding taxes, duty and other charges).
The sum will be refunded within fourteen days from the date the fax or email message is received, whereby the Customer declares the intention to withdraw from the Deed of Sale, as long as the undamaged Product in its undamaged packaging and the tax receipt are received by Compar S.p.A. Therefore, Compar S.p.A. will retain the refund until the undamaged Product in its undamaged packaging and the tax receipt have been received or until the Customer demonstrates that the Product has been returned.
The refund will be made by crediting the Price and Shipment Costs to the credit card used to pay the order, or by bank transfer to the account indicated by the Customer in the withdrawal form.
If the Customer exercises their right of withdrawal in any other way than that given in this article, there will be no right to have the Price and Shipment Costs refunded.
