The "Satisfied or Reimbursed Guarantee" guarantee to our customers the "Right of withdrawal" or, more broadly, the "right of rethinking" regulated by the Italian standard (which transposes the European standard) which offers great consumer protection. The will of Virginia's Cottage is to ensure its customers complete satisfaction. If for some reason you are not satisfied with what you bought in our store, you can exercise your right of withdrawal, which for Internet sales is governed by D.Lgs n. 206/05 (Articles 50 to 68). Such legislation provides for the right of withdrawal, ie the possibility for the consumer to return the purchased product and to obtain the reimbursement of the cost of the item. This right is reserved exclusively to natural persons (consumers), so it can not be exercised by legal persons and natural persons acting for purposes related to professional activity. The only costs required by the buyer are those for returning the product. The only expenses that can not be reimbursed are those of the shipment of the product, as it is a service already availed.
We do not have the right to withdraw used, incomplete, defective or non-complete products (for reasons other than transport from our company to you).

We sell many fragile items in our store. That's why we put the best care in the packaging. Despite this, we are not bringing the parcel to the destination, and often couriers do not have the same care we have for parcels. For this reason, we suggest an insured expedition. In this case, if broken objects will arrive, we will be able to send it back to you as we will be refunded by the courier. Conversely, if there is no insurance, (has a very low cost), we can neither refund nor resend a replacement object.
In case your shipment has been secured and your item has been broken, we ask you to send us within 1-2 days an email notification containing the photographs of the broken objects and the shipment details, so that we can initiate the refund policy at the express courier.
