Delivery is available to:
- Mainland Spain
- Balearic Islands
- Ceuta and Melilla
Delivery is carried out by express courier companies SEUR & DHL.
Delivery will be free for orders over 50€. In all other cases, both the price of delivery and the estimated delivery time will depend on the delivery area. This information will be shown before you complete your purchase.
In some cases, and depending on product availability (out of stock), our staff will contact you to offer you a solution and inform you of the delivery time frame once the selected product is available.
The delivery company usually makes deliveries during business hours. Therefore, if you have any time preferences for delivery you can indicate these in your order’s comments and the company will try to observe these (to the extent possible according to the carrier’s route and working times).
IMPORTANT: We are not responsible for non-compliance or a delay in obligations that are caused by reasons outside our control, such as force majeure or acts of god. Although the majority of deliveries are made in the time frame indicated, occasionally delays may occur due to data transcription errors, adverse weather, a large volume of orders over certain dates, etc. In this case, contact us to resolve the incident as soon as possible. Furthermore, compliance with delivery periods also depends on external third parties, for which reason we will not be responsible for strikes, closures, accidents or other causes of force majeure that prevent them from being fulfilled.
Prices, taxes, tariffs and duties
Prices are expressed in euros and are valid unless there are typographical errors. If an obvious error were to occur in the price that appears in the product sheet, the price set for said product in the information email that we provide you with when we detect the error will prevail. Amapola Biocosmetics is not obliged to supply products (even if delivery confirmation has been sent) if the error in price is obvious and unequivocal and if it could reasonably have been recognised by the customer as incorrect.
The prices of Amapola Biocosmetics products may vary but (unless established previously) possible changes will not affect orders for which delivery confirmation has already been sent.
The retail price shown for items with a delivery address in mainland Spain and the Balearic Islands includes VAT.
The retail price shown for items with a delivery address in Ceuta or Melilla does NOT include VAT, given that the transaction is treated as an export. The price indicated for each item is its final price for deliveries to these autonomous communities. Amapola Biocosmetics will not be liable for the SAD nor import expenses and taxes (ISPI, IGIC), tariffs or duties generated at customs in the destination, if applicable.
Here at Amapola Biocosmetics, we want you to be satisfied with your order. For this reason, we offer you various methods you can use to return an item that does not meet your needs or expectations. Possible cases of return include:
- The product is incorrect, it has a defect, or it has been damaged during transport:
We take special care to ensure all of our items and deliveries are in perfect condition. However, if you receive an incorrect or defective item, please get in touch with us in a maximum of FIFTEEN (15) calendar days of receiving your order by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org / email@example.com or calling 921406859. Before opening the product, check that the packaging matches what you have requested: colour, size, finish, etc. If you detect any anomalies, you can make an immediate claim before opening the product’s packaging.
If the product has been damaged during transport, it is recommendable that you inform us of this on the same day you receive the goods and that you note the incident on the carrier’s delivery note.
Products must be returned such that they are protected, within a box or protective bag. Amapola Biocosmetics makes available to the buyer a delivery company for the return of goods with a completely free service. If you wish to return goods using a delivery company different to the carrier suggested by Amapola Biocosmetics, and the delivery company you choose offers higher rates, you must pay the difference in transport costs.
- Right to return:
We don’t want you to end up with something you don’t like, for which reason you can return an item if it doesn’t meet your expectations. To do so, in accordance with the provisions of the Consumer Rights Act, and provided that you are an individual buyer, you have the right to return goods, provided that the product is not a digital product that you have already started to download.
To exercise this right to return goods, you must do so within a maximum of FOURTEEN (14) calendar days of receiving your order. You must inform us, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org / email@example.com, of your decision to return the purchase made (to do so, you may use the following return form model, if you wish).
In order to exercise this right, the product must be found in perfect condition and in its original packaging, along with all of its parts. If products do not reach us in perfect condition, Amapola Biocosmetics reserves the right to refund an inferior amount. You will be informed of this circumstance.
The refund of the amount paid will be made once the condition of the product has been checked. The refund will be made using the same payment method used to make the purchase and, in any case, it will take place within a maximum of 14 calendar days from when the return request is reliably received, provided that Amapola Biocosmetics is managing collection of the item. If you return an item using a delivery company of your choice, the time frame of 14 days will be counted from when Amapola Biocosmetics has effective knowledge of the goods being sent or, failing this, when they are received.
Return delivery costs resulting from the right to return will be payable by the buyer.
Sealed items that are not suitable for return due to health and safety protection reasons and which have been unsealed following delivery may not be returned.
- If you have not yet received your order:
If you have not yet received your order and you wish to cancel or amend it, simply inform us of the changes you wish to make. This will not involve any extra costs if your order has not yet been processed.
Contact Information for Returns:
*Notification through this website using the “Contact” section
*Email: firstname.lastname@example.org / email@example.com
All product returns, along with their original protective packaging, must be sent to the following address: C/ Arado 13, 40197, San Cristóbal de Segovia (Segovia)
With the exception of those that, given their nature, are excluded from regulations on consumer goods guarantees, all of our products are guaranteed nationally against manufacturing defects for two years from their date of purchase (or date of delivery, if this is later), or one year if the item is not new.
We will address nonconformities. The buyer must inform us of these within two months of identifying them.
If the defect or nonconformity were to arise in the first six months following delivery of the item, whether it is a new product or second-hand product, it will be assumed that the defect or nonconformity already existed when the product was purchased (or delivered, if this was later), meaning that a manufacturing defect exists, unless we can demonstrate that the defect or nonconformity is not a manufacturing defect, but rather, for example, it is owed to misuse or poor maintenance by the buyer.
On the other hand, if the defect or nonconformity were to arise after six months and before two years have elapsed, it will be presumed that a manufacturing defect does not exist.
In the event of a defective product, we may proceed, where applicable, to repair it, replace it, reduce its price, or terminate the product. These procedures will be free to the buyer (including transport costs, where applicable).
Therefore, defects and deterioration that occur due to external events, accidents, wear and tear, or use that does not conform to our instructions or those of the manufacturer (misuse) are excluded from the guarantee. In addition, products modified or repaired by the customer or any other person not authorised by Amapola Biocosmetics, as well as products that are the subject of a specific contract, are also excluded. In these cases, the consumer will be responsible for their repair.
According to regulations, and unless proven otherwise, products will be considered to conform to the contract provided that they comply with all requirements expressed below:
- a) They adapt to the description provided and possess the product qualities presented to the consumer and User in the form of a sample or model.
- b) They are suitable for the uses that similar products are ordinarily used for.
- c) They present the usual quality and capabilities of a product of the same type that the consumer and User may reasonably expect in view of the product’s nature.
As required by new European regulations, the User is hereby informed of the existence of a European platform for online dispute resolution. Thus, in order to resolve consumer disputes (pursuant to Art. 14.1 of Regulation (EU) 524/2013), you can access European Commission’s online dispute resolution platform via the following link: https://webgate.ec.europa.eu/odr/main/?event=main.home.show&lng=ES
