Additional charge due to delivery complications will be at customer’s expense. It’s always necessary to be present at the delivery address to receive your purchase. If the delivery cannot be processed because of the customer’s absence, please contact directly the reference local courier. The delivery note dated and signed by the customer upon delivery will constitute evidence with regard to transport and delivery. Any possible damage to the package or to the products or the non-correspondence of the number of parcels have to be instantly notified through “Goods unchecked” written on the delivery note. Once the delivery note has been signed, the customer declares that THE GOODS DELIVERED ARE IN PERFECT CONDITIONS. PlayWood shall have no liability to the customer for any failure to deliver goods, any delay, any damage or defect to goods delivered that is caused by external circumstances beyond its control.
All the products sold are warranty protected on faults within 24 months from the date of reception, accordingly to the Italian/European Law Legislative Decree 24/02. For warranty activation, the customer must present a proof of purchase acceptance (the printed copy of the order confirmation e-mail is sufficient). Such warranty only refers to products that may present compliance faults, as long as the product has been used for its specific purpose and not improperly used by the customer. The warranty is effective exclusively towards the customer “consumer” according to the same Legislative Decree, which means who purchased the asset for purposes that cannot be referred to his professional activity. PlayWood’s products are produced by Italian artisans, using high quality materials and respecting the environment. In case of detected fault, PlayWood will provide a free replacement of the product. If the fault notified is not ascribable to a compliance defect, all incurred costs at PlayWood’s expense of transport and product check will be charged to the customer.
