Once you have exercised your right to withdraw from the contract and You have received approval from the vendor you must return the products to the Vendor, sending them to the shipping agent for shipment within fourteen (14) days of when you informed the Vendor of your decision to withdraw from the contract.
The cost of the return shipping to LUDOVICO’s facilities are at Your expense and You are responsible for the goods as long as You can’t provide proof of successful delivery to the vendor

Exchanges are allowed in certain circumstances if requested not later than fifteen (14) days of the date of delivery of the products by using the online return or exchange form on our website which can be accessed by inputting your order number (the “Return Form”). You may only request the replacement of one or more purchased products from a single order with products that are the same model but a different size and/or colour.
The return right – besides compliance with the terms and procedures described at par. 8.1, 8.2 and 8.3 above – shall be deemed correctly exercised  and receive approval once the following conditions have been fully met:
·  the products must not have been used, worn or washed
·  the identification tag must still be attached to the products with the disposable seal
·  the products must be returned, complete and unused, in their original packaging (in the case of hi-tech gadgets, funny gagdets, agendas, note books and toys, the packaging must include its original seal; if you want to return a kit, it must include all of its components)
·  the products must not be damaged.
Whenever the conditions indicated in letters b), c) and d) of previous paragraph 8.8 are not respected, you will not be entitled to a full refund of the amounts already paid to the Vendor. You will indeed be responsible for the decrease in value of the returned products, following a use other than the one authorized by the Vendor with the intent of allowing you to assess the nature, features and functioning of the products themselves. In this case, between 10 and 90 percent of the amounts you paid to the Vendor to purchase the returned products will be deducted from the provided refund, whereby you will be specifically informed, via e-mail, by the Vendor. Within 15 days of sending the e-mail informing you of the amount deducted from the refund, you may choose to have the products redelivered to you, at your expense, and in the condition in which they were returned to the Vendor, informing the Vendor thereof according to the procedures of which you will be advised. Otherwise, the Vendor may retain the products and an amount corresponding to the percent deducted from the refund.
In the event that the checks do not have a positive outcome, the Vendor takes steps to inform you, via e-mail, that a decrease in value of the returned products has been detected, deriving from your failure to comply with the conditions indicated in letters b), c) and d) of paragraph 8.8 above. The Vendor simultaneously sees to it that you are also informed of the amount that will be deducted from the amounts you paid to purchase the returned products; without prejudice, in the alternative, to the possibility of your having the products redelivered to you, at your expense, and in the condition in which they were returned to the Vendor, pursuant to the terms provided for in paragraph 8.10
If the return right is exercised in conformity with the provisions set forth in this section, LUDOVICO shall refund the amounts paid for the returned products according to the methods and times of our standard refund procedure.
The refund procedure will be initiated by LUDOVICO within thirty (30) days of when LUDOVICO was informed of your decision to return. The procedure will begin after checking to ensure that the customer’s return is in accordance with the Return Policy and that the returned products have been accepted as indicated in par. 9.
In the event that your return does not comply with the terms and conditions set out in section 7 of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale, you will not be entitled to any refund of sums already paid to LUDOVICO; nevertheless, you shall be entitled, at your own expense, to receive the products in the conditions in which they were sent back to LUDOVICO. If you do not wish to receive the products in the conditions in which they were sent back to LUDOVICO, LUDOVICO  shall be entitled to keep the products and withhold the sums already received.
9. Refund Times and Procedures
After the products have been returned, LUDOVICO shall check the conformity of the products with the conditions indicated in section 8 above. When LUDOVICO is able to confirm that such conditions have been met, LUDOVICO shall send you an e-mail confirming the acceptance of the returned products.
Whatever payment type you used, the refund procedure shall be started by LUDOVICO  within thirty (30) days of when LUDOVICO was informed of your decision to exercise your return right, after checking that the return right has been correctly exercised and that the returned products have been accepted.
If the recipient of the products indicated in the order form is different from the individual who made the payment for such products, the amount paid for returned items shall be refunded by LUDOVICO to the individual who made the payment.
