Pursuant to article 52 of the Consumer Code, the customer has the right to withdraw from the contract within 14 working days from the date of reception of the goods, unless specifically indicated. In the case of separate delivery of multiple products ordered by the customer which are part of a single purchase order, the right of withdrawal can be exercised within the fourteenth day following the receipt of the last product ordered.
The Consumer Customer may exercise the right of withdrawal by sending an email, in the manner indicated below, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the event that the right of withdrawal is exercised correctly, we will refund the amount due within 14 calendar days from the time we receive the communication and after viewing the goods. The refund will be made via the same form of payment chosen by the customer during the order confirmation phase.
Ursus S.p.A. will not be held responsible for any delays in crediting, which depend on the bank, the type of credit card or payment method used.
The cost, modalities and obligations for returning the goods are the customer’s responsibility.
The goods must be sent to the Ursus S.p.A. headquarters, at the following address:
Ursus S.p.A. – Via Manzoni n. 8, 36027 Rosà (Vicenza) ITALY.
The return does not entitle the customer to the full price refund if the Product is not returned substantially intact, such as the following examples:
– absence of original packaging (it is therefore recommended to keep the original packaging of the product at least until the expiration of the right of withdrawal)
– absence of integral elements of the product (accessories, cables, shelves, screws, instruction manuals, etc.)
– products handled after delivery
By way of example but not exhaustive, pursuant to Article 55 of the Consumer Code, the right of withdrawal cannot be exercised for:
- Custom-made goods
- Clearly personalized goods
- Goods that cannot be sent back or that are liable to rapidly deteriorate.
The shipment is the customer’s responsibility until the goods have been received in our warehouse.
Ursus S.p.A. can withhold the refund until the reception of the products or until the user has demonstrated that he/she has sent the products back.
Please note: if the right of withdrawal has not been exercised in accordance with the applicable legislation, it will not result in the termination of the contract and, consequently, will not entitle the customer to any refund. Ursus S.p.A. will notify the user, by e-mail, within 5 working days of receiving the product, rejecting the request for withdrawal. The product will remain at the Ursus S.p.A. headquarters available to the user for collection, which must take place at the expense and under the responsibility of the user.
The above does not apply to Professional Customers, as they do not enjoy the prerogatives provided by the Consumer Code.
For open and non-functioning or defective goods, the product must be sent to the Assistance centres. In the file of each individual product, cutomers will find the link that directly refers to the assistance centres’ contacts.
ARTICLE 7 – PAYMENT METHODS
The portal uses the secure payment services STRIPE, PAYPAL which involve the use of the SSL security protocol. The confidential credit card data (card number, holder, expiry date, security code) are encrypted and transmitted to the payment manager. Ursus S.p.A. therefore never has access to and does not store the credit card data used for the payment of the products, even if the user saves their credit card information, except and limited to the one associated to the card holder.
Ursus S.p.A. accepts the following payment methods:
Credit Cards: we rely on STRIPE as a certified payment platform through which individual transactions are managed.
PayPal: used to shop online by entering your email address and password, without entering your card number or other personal data. After clicking on the PayPal symbol, the user will be redirected to the PayPal portal, paying the products according to the procedure provided for and governed by PayPal and the terms and conditions of the contract agreed by the user with PayPal. In the case of payment via PayPal, the amount due will be charged by PayPal to the user at the same time as the conclusion of the online contract. In the event of termination of the purchase contract and in any other refund case, for any reason, the refund amount will be credited to the user’s PayPal account. The re-credit times depend exclusively on PayPal and the banking system, therefore Ursus S.p.A. cannot be held responsible for any omissions. The user must contact PayPal directly for any disputes.
Bank Transfer: payments via bank transfer must be made no later than 7 calendar days from the date of the order. Once this period has elapsed, the contract can be considered terminated by law, with consequent reimbursement of the total amount due possibly paid late. The termination of the contract will be communicated to the user via e-mail and the paid amount returned via the same payment method used. In the case of payment via bank transfer, products will be only shipped after Ursus S.p.A. has received the transfer. Consequently, the terms of delivery of the products will start from that date. To facilitate the connection between the payment received via bank transfer and the order made, the customer is required to indicate the order number in the bank transfer reason field.

ARTICLE 10 – CHANGES TO THE GENERAL TERMS OF SALE
The user will be subject to the policies and terms of the General Terms of Sale in force at the time of ordering products on the website, unless any changes to these policies and to these terms are required by applicable law or by competent authorities (in this case they will also apply to previously-placed orders). If any provision of these conditions is deemed invalid, null or inapplicable for any reason, this condition will not in any case affect the validity and effectiveness of the other provisions.
ARTICLE 11 – LEGAL GUARANTEE OF CONFORMITY
All the products purchased on the website www.ursus.it enjoy the legal guarantee of conformity in accordance with the current EU provisions and with national legislation. Consumers can, in particular, enjoy the warranty provided for in the consumer code (Legislative Decree 6 September 2005, no. 206) as required by Articles 128 to 135.
It should be noted that the Consumer is the one who buys and uses an asset for personal use and the Professional is the one who buys products for the purpose of using them for a professional activity.
The rights for each individual subject and how to enjoy these guarantees are explained in detail below.
Guarantees for the Consumer Customer
The seller is responsible towards the Consumer for any lack of conformity existing at the time of delivery of the goods.
The seller is responsible, pursuant to article 130 of the Consumer Code, when the lack of conformity occurs within two years from the delivery of the goods.
The lack of conformity must be reported to the seller under penalty of forfeiture of the guarantee, within two months from the date on which it was discovered. In the event of a lack of conformity, the consumer has the right to restore, without charge, the conformity of the goods through repair or replacement, or to an adequate reduction in the price or termination of the contract, as stated in article 130 of the Consumer Code.
In return, the consumer can in both cases ask the seller to repair the item or replace it without charge unless the requested repair is objectively impossible or excessively expensive compared to the other.
Unless proven otherwise, defects of conformity which occur within six months of delivery of the product are presumed to already exist on that date, unless this hypothesis is incompatible with the nature of the product or with the nature of the conformity claim.
For the purposes of exercising the legal warranty right, the user must provide proof of the purchase date and delivery of the goods. It is therefore recommended to always keep the purchase receipt/invoice, as well as the shipping documents and delivery note of the product.
Products repaired, modified or in any way altered by the user are excluded from the legal guarantee, as are any failures, malfunctions or other defects caused by accidents or by responsibilities attributable to the user or by non-compliant use of the product.
In the event of termination of the contract, the COMPANY undertakes to return the price paid in addition to the shipping costs and any ancillary costs. In the event of a price reduction, this will be agreed in advance between the parties; subsequently, the COMPANY will refund the amount envisaged according to the forms and methods agreed upon.
Guarantees for the Professional Customer
The Professional can only benefit from the warranty for defects of the article sold pursuant to and by effect of articles 1495 and following of the Civil Code. It should be noted that this guarantee is valid for 12 months from the time of purchase and that the defect must be reported within 8 days of its discovery.
ARTICLE 12 – JURISDICTION
In the event of disputes relating to the interpretation, execution, resolution and/or any other dispute concerning this contract, the consumer’s place of residence will be competent if the customer holds this qualification.
In the event that the Customer acts as a professional for disputes relating to the interpretation, execution, resolution and/or any other dispute concerning this contract, the court of Vicenza will have jurisdiction.
ONLINE DISPUTE RESOLUTION FOR CONSUMERS
Consumers residing in Europe are informed that the European Commission has set up an online platform that provides an alternative dispute resolution tool.
This tool can be used by European consumers to resolve any dispute relating to and/or deriving from contracts for the sale of goods and services stipulated on the Internet in a non-judicial manner. Consequently, if you are a European consumer, you can use this platform for the resolution of any dispute arising from the online contract stipulated with the Owner.
The platform is available at the following link (http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/).
