Within a maximum period of 14 days you can exchange for another piece of equal or greater value.
If you want to exchange a purchase please send an email to email@example.com within 14 days of receiving the order and we will also send you all the information and procedures by email.
The parts you want to exchange must be in perfect condition, with no signs of use, and inside the respective box. Since ceramic is a fragile material, the pieces must be repacked carefully. The shipping cost will be borne by the customer.
We do not accept returns for custom orders.
If you want to return a purchase please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org within 14 days of receiving the order and we will also send you all the information and procedures by email.
The parts you want to return must be in perfect condition, with no signs of use, and inside the respective box. Since ceramic is a fragile material, the pieces must be repacked carefully. The return cost will be borne by the customer.
After communicating the return, you have 14 days to return the parts. After we receive the returned parts and confirm that they are in perfect condition, a refund of the amount paid for the order will be made including the value of the delivery charges, using the same form of payment used at the time of purchase.
The Customer must take into account that the ceramic pieces are made by hand, through a handmade process that makes each piece unique and, therefore, the slight irregularities and variations in color, shape and finish cannot be considered as defects.
The warranty does not cover defects that result from normal wear or any other external cause, such as:
- improper use, such as submission to sudden changes in temperature;
- failure to comply with the operating or maintenance instructions on the Site, such as the use of the piece in the stove, oven or microwave or the washing of earthenware pieces in the dishwasher.
To exercise this right, the Customer must report the product's lack of conformity to the Store within two months from the date it was detected, by email email@example.com or letter sent to the store's headquarters. This communication must include a description of the problem and be accompanied by a copy of the purchase invoice.
The Client may choose one of the following solutions: replacement, appropriate price reduction or termination of the contract, whichever is more reasonable, within the limits imposed by good faith, good customs or the social or economic purpose of that right. As ceramic products, we consider that repair is not a possible solution.
If the Customer chooses to replace the damaged product, we undertake to replace the part with another, similar or equivalent, within a maximum period of 60 days.
10. CIVIL RESPONSIBILITY
The Store is not responsible for any damages, direct or indirect, of the Customer or third parties, which result from the use of the products sold.
