According to Decree-Law no. 24/2014 of February 14, the consumer has 14 days after receiving the goods to proceed with the rescission of the contract and the return of the goods. To do so, the consumer must communicate to Poppers Store the decision to withdraw from the contract by an unequivocal statement (e.g. letter sent by mail, fax or email, in the latter case to the email address [email protected] or use this form (click to access).
The right of free termination shall be exercised by sending the communication referred to in the preceding paragraph within 14 days. It is the sole responsibility of the consumer to prove that he/she has exercised the right of free resolution within the established legal deadline.
The consumer must, within 14 days from the date on which he communicated his decision to terminate the contract, return and deliver the products to the store where they were purchased.
In case of termination, it is the sole responsibility of the consumer to bear the cost of returning the goods.
In case of termination of the contract, all payments made (with the exception of additional costs resulting from the choice of a shipping method other than the least expensive normal shipping method offered by us) will be refunded, in any case, without undue delay.
Poppers Shop may withhold reimbursement as long as the goods are not received or as long as the consumer does not provide irrefutable proof of the return of the goods.
Without prejudice to the withholding provided for in the preceding paragraph, failure to comply with the obligation to reimburse within 14 days from the date of receipt of the resolution will result in a double return, without prejudice to the consumer's right to compensation for damage to property and non-property.
The consumer must keep the goods in order to be able to return them in proper conditions of use.
The exercise of the right of free resolution shall not prejudice the consumer's right to inspect, with due diligence, the nature, characteristics and functioning of the products.
The consumer will be responsible for the depreciation of the goods if the handling carried out to inspect the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods exceeds the handling normally accepted in stores.
With the exercise of the right of rescission, the price paid will be refunded to the consumer less the amount corresponding to the depreciation.
If the depreciation is total, there is no place for any refund.
