All Cisalfa products are covered by the manufacturer's standard warranty and the 24-month warranty for defects of conformity, pursuant to Legislative Decree 206/05. To use the warranty, the Customer must keep the receipt or invoice (or DDT) that he will receive in electronic format in his personal profile. The exercise of the warranty may include the request for assistance to authorized service centers in the area and / or follow the procedures illustrated in the documentation inside the product packaging.
The manufacturer's standard warranty is provided in the manner described in the documentation inside the product packaging. If, as a result of intervention by an Authorized Service Center, the defect is not covered by the manufacturer's standard warranty, the Customer will be charged for any costs of verification and restoration required by the Authorized Assistance, as well as transport costs.
The 24-month warranty pursuant to Legislative Decree 206/05 applies to the product that presents a lack of conformity, provided that the product itself is used correctly, in compliance with its intended use and as provided in the attached technical documentation. This guarantee is reserved for the Consumer. In case of lack of conformity, Cisalfa provides, at no cost to the Customer, to restore the conformity of the product by repair / replacement or reduction of the price or partial refund of the order or by providing the customer with a discount code, until the termination of the contract. If, as a result of intervention by an Authorized Service Center, the defect does not result in a lack of conformity pursuant to Legislative Decree 206/05, the Customer will be charged for any costs of verification and restoration required by the Authorized Assistance, as well as transport costs. Replacements in case of DOA (Dead On Arrival: product not working on delivery) take place only if expressly provided by the manufacturer. The timing of replacement or repair of the product depends solely on the manufacturer's policies.
In the event that, for any reason, it is not able to return to its customer a product under warranty (repaired or replaced), Cisalfa may proceed at its discretion to refund the amount paid taking into account the use of the goods or its replacement with a product of equal or superior characteristics. The timing of repair or possible replacement of the product depends exclusively on the manufacturer's policies and no damage can be requested to Cisalfa for any delays in carrying out repairs or replacements.
In cases where the application of the guarantees provides for the return of the product, the goods must be returned by the Customer in the original packaging, complete in all its parts (including packaging and any documentation and accessory equipment: manuals, cables, etc ...); to limit damage to the original packaging, we recommend placing it in a second box; it should be avoided in all cases the affixing of labels or adhesive tapes directly on the package original product.
