The notification may be made by e-mail, ordinary mail and if the Customer has provided a mobile number, also by phone or SMS. ArtBird is entitled to charge the Customer a fee of 35 euro if the package is not retrieved. In cases of Home delivery there should be a person available to accept the parcel.
9.RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL
When purchasing products on the Website the Customer has a 90 day withdrawal period. This means that the Customer has the right to cancel any purchase by notifying ArtBird accordingly within 90 days from when the Customer or its representative received the product ordered (withdrawal period).
By accepting the General Conditions, the Customer acknowledges and agrees that the right of withdrawal is not valid for any digital content delivered otherwise than by a tangible medium.
In connection with ordering a product for which the right of withdrawal does not apply, the Customer will receive clear information. If a product has been sealed, the Customer may not break the seal if the Customer wishes to utilize its right of withdrawal. The right of withdrawal ceases accordingly when the Customer breaks the seal. A seal shall also include any technical seal (e.g. serial number).
If the Customer wishes to withdraw a purchase, the Customer shall, prior to the expiry of the withdrawal period, send a clear message to ArtBird in the manner set forth here. The Customer shall provide its name, address and other relevant information, e.g. order reference, invoice number and the name of the product in the message. If the Customer prefers not to use the above alternative message, the Customer may use the standard form for the right of withdrawal provided by the National Board for Consumer Policies or any other equivalent authority in their respective country.
When exercising the right of withdrawal, the Customer pays a return shipping fee and is responsible for the condition of the product after the Customer has received the product and during the return shipping. Customers from Malta and Cyprus are responsible to cover for their own return cost and no return fee will be deducted. The product shall be returned within 14 days from the date when ArtBird was notified of the withdrawal. The product shall be sent well packaged, in good condition and in its original box. Any returns shall be sent to ArtBird in accordance to the methods and instructions stated on the Website, which you will find on www.artbird.com
When the Customer withdraws its purchase, ArtBird will refund the amount the Customer has paid for the product, including shipping costs. Any additional shipping costs due to the Customer choosing another delivery than the standard delivery offered by ArtBird are exempted from refund. Upon return of part of an order, the shipping costs will not be refunded. ArtBird is entitled to deduct an amount from the amount to be refunded, which corresponds to the depreciation in value of the product compared to the original value of the product, if and to the extent such depreciation in value is due to Customer having handled the product to a greater extent than necessary to determine its function or characteristics.
ArtBird will pay back the amount without undue delay, however, no later than within 14 days from the date ArtBird received the Customer notification of withdrawal. However, ArtBird may delay repayment until ArtBird has received the product or the Customer has provided proof that the product has been returned, e.g. by means of certificate of delivery. Repayment will be made to the Customer by the payment method chosen by the Customer, unless otherwise agreed or if there is any objection for such a repayment.
