Defects, non-conformities, and damage to products:
The Purchaser, or the recipient of the Order, is invited to check the state of the package and the products at the time of delivery. In the event of any anomalies with the package (damaged or opened package, traces of liquid, etc.) and/or of the products ordered (products which are missing, defective or damaged), the Purchaser or the recipient of the Order will need to return the products to HCS srl following the procedures described below. Failure to comply with the correct procedure excludes any recourse against the carrier and/or HCS srl, including the right to refund of the Order and/or return of the ordered products. The Purchaser or the recipient of the Order may alternatively call Face D Customer Service to find out how to return the damaged, non-conforming and/or defective product(s). The procedure for returning damaged, non-conforming and/or defective products that will be indicated by Face D Customer Service must be followed by the Purchaser. Otherwise, the Purchaser may not claim any refund or replacement of the products in question.
Procedures that must necessarily be followed in case of evident damage of the package for its return to HCS srl: In the event of an anomaly detected in the presence of a person from the express courier shipment company (GLS).
- Reject the delivery and write on the courier’s document all the reservations concerning the anomaly in a clear and detailed manner;
- It is necessary to send afterwards (within 1 week) a report about the refused collection to HCS srl by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by calling 02.67078166 (Mon-Fri 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.; 2:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m.).
Procedure that must be followed in case of a missing, damaged, or defective product: Face D Customer Service may ask for information regarding the identity of the Purchaser or the recipient of the Order and perform any verification that may be useful. Face D Customer Service will instruct the Purchaser or the recipient on how to return the damaged or defective product or how to obtain the missing products. Once the products have been received, HCS srl will check that these products are actually faulty, damaged or do not correspond to the description provided on the website. If this verification is positive, HCS srl will replace the faulty, damaged, or non-compliant product and will send it to the Purchaser as soon as possible and in any case within 30 (thirty) working days from the receipt of the products. Shipping costs shall be paid in their entirety by HCS srl. In the event that HCS srl is unable to replace the products within the above-mentioned term, HCS srl shall immediately inform the Purchaser at the e-mail address indicated at the moment of the purchase registration and refund the Purchaser for the cost of such products and shipping costs if the Purchaser provides proof of the cost incurred to return the products. The refund of the amount will be made by HCS srl with the modalities chosen at its discretion in the shortest time possible, and in any case within 30 (thirty) working days from the date in which the products will be received. In the event that, after examining the returned products, HCS srl reasonably considers that the products cannot be considered faulty, damaged, or not in conformity with the description on the website, the Purchaser will not be entitled to a refund and the products will be returned to it, with shipping costs charged to the Purchaser.
Right and terms for the exercise of withdrawal:
According to the provisions of the law (Article 59 paragraph E of the Legislative Decree of 21/2/2014), the Purchaser may, within the period of 14 (fourteen) working days from the date of receipt of the package containing the goods ordered, withdraw from the purchase contract without penalty and without any reason by contacting the customer service. To make the return, the Purchaser may send an email to email@example.com specifying in the subject the reference order number received in the confirmation email and all the details of the product he wants to return. The Purchaser, exercising the right of withdrawal under this article, within the terms and in the manner described below for the return of products, may obtain at its discretion:
- the refund of the amount paid for products returned to the central warehouse, by re-crediting the relative amount on its credit card or by bank transfer.

HCS srl shall refund the customer the full amount already paid for the product within 14 days of receipt of the return form containing the decision to exercise the right of withdrawal. HCS srl may withhold the refund until it has received the goods or until the purchaser has demonstrated having returned the goods. Refunds shall be made by cancelling the amount charged to the credit card or by bank transfer using the bank details (IBAN code of the invoice holder) provided by the Purchaser on the Return Form.
