GENERAL SALES CONDITIONS

BINDING CONTRACT

The contract stipulated between CARACALLA Sagl and the customer is considered binding with order acceptance by CARACALLA Sagl even for only a part of the items ordered by the customer.

This acceptance can be tacit and does not depend on any order confirmation sent by CARACALLA Sagl to the customer.

By placing an order, the customer states to have fully read and accepted the following general sales conditions.

The customer must ensure that the information contained in the order confirmation is correct and promptly communicate any corrections to the contact address indicated on the site.

CARACALLA SAGL will promptly inform the customer of failure to accept the order via e-mail. CARACALLA SAGL cannot be held liable by contract or in tort for direct or indirect damages to people and/or property caused by the failure to accept, even partially, an order. Thus customer has no right to damage compensation or indemnity for the failure to accept, even partially, an order.

CARACALLA SAGL reserves the right to alter the prices of its items at any time; the price due by the purchaser will be the one in effect at the time the order is saved (upon booking product availability).

WITHDRAWAL RIGHTS

By law, the customer has the right to withdraw from the purchase contract for any reason, without need for justification and without any penalties, except for the conditions indicated below in this paragraph. To communicate withdrawal, the communication via e-mail indicated in paragraph 8 is sufficient, provided it clearly and explicitly contains the customer’s will to withdraw from the purchase and receive reimbursement.

Once this withdrawal communication is received, CARACALLA SAGL shall promptly provide the customer with instructions on how to return goods which must be received by CARACALLA SAGL without 10 days of authorisation.

Withdrawal rights are subject to the following conditions:

For hygienic reasons and since cosmetic products are easily perishable, opened products cannot be returned. Products must be returned intact, with the external packaging still sealed and in perfect conditions.

– Products whose original packaging is labelled, taped or marked by the customer are not accepted.

– by law, the customer shall bear shipping fees for returns;

– the customer is fully liable for shipping until received by our warehouse;

– in the event of damages during transport, CARACALLA SAGL shall inform the customer (within 5 business days of receipt at our warehouse), to allow him/her to promptly file claims with his/her chosen shipping gent and obtain reimbursement of the value of the goods (if insured); in this case, the product will be made available to the customer for returns, simultaneously cancelling the request for withdrawal;

CARACALLA SAGL cannot be held liable for damages or loss/theft of returned goods shipped uninsured.

Under the conditions above, CARACALLA SAGL shall reimburse the entire amount initially paid by the customer within 7 days of return or, in the event of partial return, the amount concerning the returned items. Reimbursement may not include the value of packaging or gift wrapping if not returned intact

Should goods be paid with credit card, reimbursement will be completed with the same method.

If the customer’s order benefited from free or discounted shipping, since the order amount was over the minimum required to benefit from this condition, and the customer subsequently exercises the right to withdrawal for some or all items, an amount will be deducted from the customer’s reimbursement as shipping and packaging fee contributions unless the customer keeps items totaling a price that exceeds the minimum required for free shipping.

In this case, the value of this contribution deducted from the reimbursement is the shipping fee indicated on the website, corresponding to the shipping method used for the original shipment and, in any case, this contribution will not be under CHF 15.00 for shipments in Switzerland and 50.00 EUR for shipments to other countries.

In the event of returns, the purchaser shall bear all shipping fees from the purchaser’s home to the CARACALLA SAGL address as well as any customs duties and VAT due to customs.

CARACALLA SAGL shall provide the best assistance possible for customs clearance.

The purchaser must provide any documentation required for customs clearance.
