12) Right of withdrawal
In accordance with current law, if the Customer is a “Consumer”, as defined in art. 3 of the Italian Consumer Code, they shall be entitled to the rights set out in artt. 52 and successive of the Italian Consumer Code as amended by Italian Legislative Decree n. 21 of 21/02/2014 and, therefore, the right to withdraw from the Purchase Contract (hereinafter also referred to as “Right of Withdrawal”) for any reason, without the need to provide any explanation and without incurring any penalties, within 14 days from the date of receipt of the Products in accordance with the modalities specified below.
Withdrawal may concern all (total withdrawal) or only part (partial withdrawal) of the SIC S.r.l. products purchased by the Consumer.
The Customer who intends to exercise their right of withdrawal must notify the Company via explicit declaration (hereinafter also referred to as “Notice of Withdrawal”), which may be sent - within the aforementioned withdrawal period - by recorded delivery with notice of receipt to:
with registered offices in
Via Biondi , n. 1
20154 Milan (MI)
or by certified email to:
The Customer may also exercise their right of withdrawal by sending the “standard return” form via the aforementioned channels as shown in Annex I, part B, of Italian Legislative Decree n. 21/2014 (not mandatory) which reads as follows:
Standard return form pursuant to art. 49, par. 1, letter h)
(complete and return this form only if you wish to withdraw from the contract)
I/we (*) hereby inform you of my/our (*) withdrawal from my/our (*) contract for the
sale of the following items (*)
Ordered on (*)/received on (*)
Name of Consumer/s
Address of Consumer/s
Signature of Consumer/s (only necessary if this document is sent in printed form)
(*) Delete as appropriate.
Following the correct exercising of the right to withdraw as described in artt. 52 and successive of the aforementioned Italian Consumer Code, SIC S.r.l. will forward the relative Case Reference Number to the Consumer by email. This Number must be indicated by the Customer on returning the Product(s) (hereinafter also referred to as “Return”).
The Return of the Product(s) must take place within 14 (fourteen) days from the date on which the Consumer physically receives the goods pursuant to art. 52 of the aforementioned Italian Consumer Code. The aforementioned deadline will be considered as met if the Consumer returns or re-consigns the relative Product(s) within the 14 (fourteen) day deadline.
SIC reminds its Customers that transportation costs related to the return of the Product(s) in question are to be paid by the Customer and that the Return is entirely the responsibility of the Customer.
The Company also reminds its Consumers to ensure that the Product(s) to be Returned is/are intact and in a normal state of preservation, in its/their original packaging and complete in all its/their parts (including packaging and any documentation) before sending.
If the right of withdrawal has been correctly exercised in accordance with artt. 52 and successive, without prejudice to the right of SIC S.r.l. to verify the integrity of the items returned, the Company will reimburse the Consumer for the full amount previously paid including any Delivery Costs within 14 (fourteen) days of notification of the Consumer's decision to withdraw from the Purchase Contract.
Pursuant to and by effect of art. 56 of the Italian Consumer Code as amended by Italian Legislative Decree n. 21/2014, SIC reserves the right to withhold reimbursement until it has received the Product(s).
The amount will be refunded by the same means of payment as the Consumer used for the initial transaction, save for requests from the Consumer to the contrary.
13) Legal warranties
The Consumer has the right to exercise the legal warranty pursuant to artt.128 to 132 of the Consumer Code.
This Warranty provides, among other points, that the Consumer, under penalty of invalidation, will inform SIC S.r.l. of any nonconformity encountered by the Consumer in the product purchased within 2 (two) months from the date on which said nonconformity was encountered (pursuant to art. 132 of the Italian Consumer Code) and, in any case, no later than 2 (two) years after delivery of the product.
As a result of said report of nonconformity, the Consumer will be entitled to request that the Product be replaced.
By virtue of the above legal Warranty, SIC S.r.l. is therefore responsible for nonconformities encountered within 2 (two) years from delivery of the Product. Beyond this period, SIC will therefore no longer be liable for any nonconformity encountered by the Consumer.
Following receipt of a Customer complaint, SIC will verify the existence of the nonconformity reported.
In order for the Warranty to be valid, the relative purchase receipt must be shown. Reference is made to the regulations set out by the Italian Consumer Code as specified in art. 128 and successive.
The Company declines all responsibility for direct or indirect damages to persons or things as a result of the failure to observe all the indications of the specific instructions delivered together with the Product and, in particular, with regard to instructions concerning use and storage of the product.
These General Terms and Conditions of Sale are constituted by the totality of the clauses that make up the same. In the event that one or more of the clauses in these General Terms and Conditions of Sale are considered to be invalid or are declared as such pursuant to the law, to regulations or as a consequence of a sentence passed by a competent court, the other clauses will continue to hold full force and effectiveness.
15) Applicable law and Jurisdiction

Pursuant to and in accordance with art.141-sexies, par. 3 of the Consumer Code, the User is hereby informed that they hold the role of Consumer pursuant to art. 3, par. 1, letter a) of the Italian Consumer Code which states that in the event that they have filed a complaint directly with the Company which has not, however, been resolved they may contact an Alternative Dispute Resolution organisation or organisations for the out-of-court resolution of disputes regarding the obligations deriving from the contract concluded on the basis of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale (known as ADR organisations as indicated in artt.141-bis and successive of the Consumer Code).
In particular, it is hereby stated that a European platform has been set up for the online resolution of consumer disputes (known as the ODR platform). The ODR platform, which can be consulted at http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/, provides Consumers with a list of ADR organisms and relative website links via which it is possible to set up online resolution procedures for disputes in which they are involved.
The above is without prejudice to the right of the Consumer to refer to the competent court for the dispute arising from these General Terms and Conditions of Sale whatever the result of the out-of-court settlement, as well as the right, where applicable, to opt for an out-of-court settlement of disputes concerning consumer relations through the procedures set out in Part V, Title II-bis of the Italian Consumer Code.
In the event in which the Consumer resides in a member state of the European Union other than Italy, they may furthermore, for any dispute relative to the application, execution and interpretation of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale, make use of the European Small Claims Procedure pursuant to Regulation (EC) n. 861/2007 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 July 2007 on the condition that the value of the claim does not exceed the sum of € 2,000.00 exclusive of all interest, expenses and disbursements (the full Regulation can be seen on the website www.eur-lex.europa-eu).
All disputes that cannot be settled amicably will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the court in the place of residence or domicile of the Client if located within state territory.
In any case, it is possible to opt for mediation pursuant to Italian Legislative Decree n. 28/2010 for the resolution of any disputes emerging from the interpretation and execution of these terms and conditions of sale.
