GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF
PURCHASE AND USE OF THE GIFT CARD
What the Gift Card is
The Gift Card is a gift voucher that can be purchased on-line, by accessing the Website www.corneliani.com (hereinafter generically referred to as the "Site") that can be used for making personal purchases or be given as a gift to a third party.
Once the Gift Card purchase procedure is completed, an email containing the Gift Card code will be sent to the recipient ("Beneficiary") indicated by the Purchaser at the time of purchase. The Gift Card shall be immediately usable by the Beneficiary only for the purchase of the products sold upon accessing the Site, with no need to activate the Gift Card itself, which shall be active from the time when the aforementioned e-mail is sent.
The Gift Card is issued by Corneliani S.p.A., with registered office in Milan (MI), 20122 Via Durini 24, Tax Code and VAT no. 11762610969 (hereinafter "Corneliani") and is sold on the Site by Drop Srl, with registered office in Montegranaro, 63812, viale Sandro Pertini n.1, Tax Code and VAT no. 01383870431 (hereinafter "DROP" or "Seller").
Corneliani is also the owner of the Site, as well as the Supplier-Manufacturer of the products sold on the Site.
The purchase and use of the Gift Card is governed by the following General Terms and Conditions of Purchase and Use.
The purchase of products sold by accessing the Site, on the other hand, is governed by the General Terms and Conditions of Sale that can be consulted in the relevant "Terms of Sale" section of the Site. Unless otherwise established in these General Terms and Conditions of Purchase and Use, full reference is made to the General Terms and Conditions of Sale referred to above.
How to purchase the Gift Card
The customer wishing to purchase a Gift Card (hereinafter referred to as "Purchaser") shall proceed by sending a special telematic purchase order to the Seller, selecting the Gift Card product and adding it to the shopping cart.
When selecting the Gift Card, the purchaser shall indicate the value he/she intends to assign to it, which may not be less than € 100.00 (one hundred/00). The value of the Gift Card shall also constitute the purchase price thereof.
At the time of purchase, in addition to his/her personal details and those of the recipient of the Gift Card, the Purchaser shall also indicate a valid e-mail address of the Beneficiary to which the
Gift Card will be sent. It is the Purchaser's responsibility to verify that he/she has entered a valid e-mail address, as no liability can be attributed to the Seller if an invalid e-mail address is given.
In order to proceed with the placing of the order, the customer must proceed by clicking on the 'Add to Cart' button.
To create a personal account, please refer to the contents of Article 3 of the General Terms and Conditions of Sale, available for consultation in the specific "Terms of Sale” section on the Site. Gift Cards may be purchased using all the payment methods provided for on the Site.
No discounts and/or promotions of any kind may be applied to the purchase of the Gift Card, including any offers and/or promotions present on the Site, which shall in any event be considered valid only for the direct purchase of the products sold on the Site.
At the conclusion of the purchase, the Gift Card, indicating the code associated with the gift voucher, will be sent to the e-mail address of the Beneficiary indicated at the time of purchase.
Right of withdrawal
Within 14 (fourteen) days from the purchase of the Gift Card, the Purchaser, as a consumer pursuant to Italian Legislative Decree No. 206/2005, may exercise the right of withdrawal with the modalities explained in full in article 14 of the General Conditions of Sale available in the relevant "Terms of sale" section of the Site, with the exception of any terms exclusively applicable to withdrawal from the purchase of products other than the Gift Card.
The right of withdrawal with respect to the purchase of a Gift Card can only be exercised if the Gift Card in question has never yet been used by the Beneficiary.
In case of exercising the right of withdrawal with respect to the purchase of a Gift Card, once the notice of withdrawal has been received and it has been verified that the Gift card has not been used, the Seller shall refund the amount paid for the purchase in the shortest possible time and, in any event, within fourteen (14) days from the date on which the Seller has become aware of the withdrawal. The refund shall be made with the same payment methods used for the purchase of the Gift Card.
When the Seller receives communication of the exercise of the right of withdrawal by the Purchaser, it will first verify that the Gift Card has never been used, then also send an e-mail to the Beneficiary of the Gift Card, indicating that, due to
the Purchaser exercising his/her right of withdrawal, the Gift Card (and the corresponding gift voucher code) is no longer usable.
Use of the Gift Card
Upon completion of the purchase order, the Purchaser shall receive an order confirmation e-mail containing the order summary. At the same time, an e-mail containing the code of the gift voucher associated with the Gift Card will be sent to the Gift Card Beneficiary at the e-mail address indicated by the Purchaser at the time of purchase. The Gift Card is immediately functional at the time of sending and does not require any type of activation.
The Beneficiary who wishes to make a purchase using the Gift Card shall proceed following the purchase procedure as specified in the General Terms and Conditions of Sale that can be consulted in the "Terms of Sale" section of the Website and, at the time of payment, shall choose the option "Apply Gift Card" and subsequently enter the code of the gift voucher associated with the Gift Card. No more than one Gift Card can be used for each single purchase order.
The Gift Card can be used several times until its value is fully depleted and in any case within one year from the date of issue. After each expenditure, its value will be automatically deducted from that of the Gift Card until it has been completely used up. You can consult the updated balance of the Gift Card on the Site in the "check out" section or in the reserved area under "Gift Card".
If the initial or residual value of the Gift Card is not sufficient to make the desired purchase on the Site, the missing amount may be paid with the additional payment methods provided for purchases on the Site, as specified in more detail in the General Terms and Conditions of Sale that can be consulted in the "Terms of Sale" section of the Site.
The purchase of Products on the Site through the use of a Gift Card is governed by the provisions of the General Terms and Conditions of Sale that can be consulted in the "Terms of Sale" section of the Site.
The Gift Card is intended exclusively for the personal use of the Beneficiary and may not be sold to third parties.
The Gift Card can only be used to purchase the products sold upon accessing the Site; it cannot be used to purchase another Gift Card and its value is not convertible into cash.
The Gift Card is a bearer security and is equivalent to cash. Therefore, if it is misused, lost, stolen and/or damaged, it cannot be blocked and/or replaced and/or refunded. Furthermore, no liability can be attributed to the Seller and/or Corneliani for any improper and/or fraudulent use of the Gift Card.
The risk of loss and the ownership of the Gift Card, indeed, transfer to the Purchaser and/or the Beneficiary when the Gift Card is sent electronically to the e-mail address provided by the Purchaser when purchasing the Gift Card.
Gift Cards obtained by any fraudulent or illegal means shall be considered null and void and, therefore, cannot be used for the purchase of products offered for sale on the Site.
Terms of Duration
The Gift Card is active from the date it is sent to the Beneficiary and is valid for one year. Upon expiry of this term, the Gift Card may no longer be used and any residual value thereof may not be used and/or redeemed.
Return and right of withdrawal for products purchased with the Gift Card
Should the Beneficiary exercise the right of withdrawal and therefore return a product purchased with the sole use of a Gift Card, the payment shall be refunded by the Seller through the issue of a voucher that can be used for subsequent purchases made on the Site, valid for 12 (twelve) months from the date of its issue.
If the withdrawal and the return, on the other hand, concern an order paid using a supplemental means of payment in addition to the Gift Card, the refund shall be made, for the value of the Gift Card, by issuance by the Seller of a voucher as specified above and, for the amount in excess of the value of the Gift Card, by the same means of payment chosen by the Beneficiary at the time of purchase.
In this hypothesis, if the withdrawal is partial and the return concerns only some of the purchased products, the refund will be made as a priority using the payment method used in addition to the Gift Card.
With regard to the procedures and terms relating to the exercise of the right of withdrawal and the return of products purchased using a Gift Card, reference is made herein to the provisions of Article 14 of the General Terms and Conditions of Sale available for consultation in the "Terms of Sale" section of the Site.
Legal guarantee of conformity for products purchased with the Gift Card
Products purchased on the Site using a Gift Card are covered by the legal guarantee of conformity provided for in Article 13 of the General Terms and Conditions of Sale, which can be consulted in the "Terms of Sale" section of the Site.
