1)All products marketed by ATELIER DU CHOCOLAT DI BERTOLO PIETRO are covered by the conventional warranty of 24 months for lack of conformity, in accordance with Legislative Decree no. 24/02. In order to benefit from the warranty service, the customer must keep the invoice (or DDT) provided with the purchased goods.

2) Pursuant to Legislative Decree no. 24/02, the 24 month warranty applies to non-conforming products, provided that the product is used properly in accordance with its intended use and its accompanying documentation. This warranty, in accordance with Legislative Decree no. 24/92, shall be restricted to the private consumer (a person who buys goods for purposes not related to his professional activity, or who makes a purchase without indicating a reference to VAT on the order form). In case of lack of conformity, ATELIER DU CHOCOLAT DI BERTOLO PIETRO shall restore the conformity of the product, at no cost for the

3) If for any reason ATELIER DU CHOCOLAT DI BERTOLO PIETRO is not able to replace a product under warranty (repaired or replaced) it may proceed, with the customer’s consent, to replace the product itself (if still in the catalogue), or with a product with the same features and value or, finally, issue a voucher for the same amount to spend on another product. The voucher is valid for 6 months from the issue date.
4) No damage can be claimed from ATELIER DU CHOCOLAT DI BERTOLO PIETRO for any delays in replacing products under warranty.
