3.7 The Client has both English and Italian at his disposal in order to finalise the contract.
4. RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL
4.1 The provisions of this Article are applicable only to Purchases made by the Consumer.
4.2 The Client is entitled to exercise the right of withdrawal and thereby annul the Purchase order, without penalty or needing to provide an explanation, within the time period, subject to forfeiture, 14 (fourteen) days effective from the delivery of the Product to the location indicated at the time of Purchase.

In order to comply with the aforementioned deadlines, the date is that of the date of postage at the post office.
4.4 Following receipt of the registered letter, Flomour will communicate to the Client the process by which the Product may be returned, which is handled by the Client at the Client's expense. Within 14 (fourteen) days from the effective return of the Product, the Client will receive a refund of the Purchase price of the Product (after any additional expenses have been deducted, such as charges applied by the payment system used by the Client, where incurred at Flomour 's expense), on condition that the Product is returned in pristine condition. Failing that, Flomour reserves the right to deduct an amount equal to that required in order to restore the Product to pristine condition.
4.5 The right of withdrawal cannot be exercised in relation to Products that have been customised according to Client requests, or Products that are no longer intact or have been used improperly or modified by the Client.

5.2 It is understood that a small lack of conformity – for which the remedies of repair or return are either not possible or would be excessively costly – does not entitle the Client to terminate the contract but only entitles him to a reduction in price.
5.3 Lack of conformity, subject to forfeiture, must be declared in writing and addressed to Flomour by means of registered post ('raccomandata A/R' for those posting within Italy), within two months of the date from which the Client became aware of it, and within two years of the delivery of the Product. In order to comply with the aforementioned deadlines, the date is that of the date of postage at the post office.
5.4 It is understood that the possible defect is not considered a lack of conformity according to that provided for by the Consumer Code if, at the point of Purchase, the Client was aware of the defect, couldn't ignore it with a reasonable degree of diligence, or if the defect derives from instructions or materials supplied by the Consumer or the customisation of the Product.
