The sale of Items on the Site is exclusively reserved for retail and private customers.

Under no circumstances may the Site be used by professional sellers, individually or collectively, regardless of the method of marketing their products (Internet marketplaces, shopping malls, intermediaries, physical stores, etc.). Professional sellers should contact Martina Medail’s sales department directly.

The Customer acknowledges and therefore accepts that Items may only be purchased in quantities corresponding to the average needs of a consumer, both in terms of the number of items ordered in a single order and the number of individual orders that are consistent with the typical quantity for an average consumer, ordered for the same product. Martina Medail reserves the right to refuse an order that has been clearly made by a professional seller Customer.

Martina Medail reserves the right to close any customer account and consequently refuse any sale to a Customer in the following cases:

  1. Delivery

The Customer can choose between several delivery methods available during the Order process.

Delivery is made in accordance with the delivery method chosen by the Customer as specified in the Order confirmation. The delivery dates given on the Site are approximate and correspond to the average processing and delivery times. Martina Medail cannot be held responsible for any consequences due to late delivery that is not its fault. In addition, the day after a collection is put online, the delivery time may be extended to 10 (ten) days, given the volume of Orders.

Delivery is made to the delivery address specified by the Customer, it being understood that this must be the residential address of the Customer, a natural person of his or her choice or a legal entity (delivery to his or her company). Delivery cannot be made to hotels or post boxes.

Delivery to Non-EU countries can incur in additional custom duties and value added taxes (VAT), which are not included in the price and shipping cost listed on our website. We are not responsible for covering these expenses.

Orders are shipped on average within 24 (twenty-four) hours, but this can be extended to 10 (ten) business days. To ensure that these deadlines are met, the Customer must make sure that he or she has provided accurate and complete information on the delivery address (such as street number, building number, stairway number, access codes, names and/or intercom numbers, etc.).

Martina Medail will deliver orders within a maximum of 14 (fourteen) working days for delivery in the European Union and 20 (twenty) working days for international delivery from the day following order confirmation. If the delivery time is not met and not justified by force majeure, the Customer may request cancellation of the sale and obtain a refund of the amounts paid for the sale within a maximum period of 14 (fourteen) days following the date on which the agreement is terminated.

  1. Delivery Failure

If after two attempts delivery of your parcel becomes impossible, the transport agency will try to find a safe place to leave it, and they will leave a note to let you know where your parcel is and how to pick it up. If you are not going to be in the place of delivery at the convened time, please contact us to agree on another delivery date.

If 15 days after your parcel is available for delivery the parcel has not been delivered for reasons not attributable to us, we will understand that you want to cancel the Agreement and it will therefore be terminated. Following said termination we will refund you the price paid for such products as soon as possible and in any event within a maximum of 30 days from the date in which we deem the Agreement to be terminated. In such case, we will be authorised to charge you the transportation costs arising from the shipping and return (including any incurred duties if outside the EU).

If your order has incurred in duties and you refuse to collect the parcel/payment duties, your parcel will be held with the courier company for 48 hours, after which it will be returned to our warehouse and we will deduct the all associated import duties (import and export) and return shipment cost from your refund. 

  1. Right of withdrawal

The Customer has the right to cancel for a period of 14 (fourteen) days from the date of receipt of his or her Order.

The Customer must notify Martina Medail of his or her intention to withdraw by requesting a return via the Returns section of Martina Medail website.

The Customer must then return the Items to Martina Medail within 14 (fourteen) days of his or her notification of the cancellation. The Item(s) must be returned in its (their) original packaging, in its (their) original condition, new, unworn and unwashed.

Customers shall bear the full shipping costs of return, be it through a paid DHL shipping label provided by Martina Medail, or returning on their own behalf.

To return a product, the Customer must follow the procedure set out in the Returns section of Martina Medail website.

All amounts, except the shipping cost, paid by the Customer shall be refunded by Martina Medail using the same means of payment as that used for the payment of the Order no later than 14 (fourteen) days after Martina Medail is notified of the Customer's decision to cancel the order. Refunds may be deferred until the Items are retrieved or until the Customer has provided proof of shipment of the Items, depending on which of the two dates is the earliest. The return costs are borne by Martina Medail if the delivered Item is different from the ordered or damaged Item. If the Customer fails to comply with these GTCS, specifically the conditions for returns, Martina Medail may not reimburse the Items concerned.

For returns from countries outside the European Union: returns must be sent by Parcel (an Ordinary Parcel). The Customer must complete the CN23 Customs Declaration (or equivalent), provide a description of the goods and tick the box "Return of goods" in the "category of shipment". The Customer must also submit the invoice for the Order in question to prove that the goods are identical. Failure to provide this information, or provide it incompletely, could result in duties being borne upon collection of the return and these duty costs deducted from the refund amount. 

  1. Guarantees and complaints

Complaints: Upon receipt of the Items, the Customer must immediately check the condition and conformity of the Items with the Order, including the quality and quantity of the Items and their specifications.
