Shipping costs are included in the final prices of the products as displayed on the Website. PAESA performs the delivery and/or postal services using Sociedad Estatal de Correos y Telégrafos, S.A.
In no event will the Website add additional costs to the price of a product or service automatically, but only those that the User has selected and chosen voluntarily and freely.

If it is impossible to carry out the delivery of the order in the absence of the User, the order may be returned to the warehouse. However, the carrier shall leave a notice explaining where the order is, and how to rearrange delivery.
If, within 30 days from when your order is available for delivery, it has not been delivered for reasons not attributable to PAESA, PAESA shall assume that the User wishes to withdraw from the contract, which shall be considered terminated. As a result of contract termination, all payments received from the User will be returned, without undue delay and, in any event, within 14 days from the date of termination of the contract.
For the purposes of these Conditions, it is understood that the delivery has occurred, or that the order has been delivered, when the User, or a third party nominated by the User, acquires physical possession of the products, which will be evidenced by signing the receipt at the agreed delivery address.
The User will acquire the risk in the product from the time of delivery. The User acquires ownership of the product when PAESA receives full payment for all amounts due in relation to the purchase or acquisition, including shipping, or at the time of delivery, if this takes place after full payment.

The User must take into account that in these territories there may be situations in which taxes and customs duties are applied and accrue at the destination, in accordance with applicable regulations, and that these shall be borne by the User.
For purchase orders located in territories other than those above, delivery and/or payment are governed by the rules in force from time to time; the User must take into account that this could cause the application and payment of taxes and customs duties at destination, in accordance with the applicable laws of the destination, and that these shall be borne by the User.

Right of Withdrawal
The User, as a consumer and user, makes a purchase on the Website, and therefore has the right to withdraw from such a purchase within a period of 14 calendar days without justification.
This withdrawal period shall expire 14 calendar days from the date that the User, or a third party nominated by the User, other than the carrier, acquires physical possession of the goods purchased on the PAESA Website, or if the goods which form part of the order are delivered separately, 14 calendar days from the date that the User, or a third party nominated by the User, other than the carrier, acquires physical possession of the last of those goods that made up the same purchase order.
To exercise this right of withdrawal, the User must notify its decision to PAESA. He/she may do so, where appropriate, through the contact section of the Website or via the contact details provided at the beginning of these Conditions.
The User, regardless of the method chosen to communicate his/her decision, should express clearly and unequivocally that it is his/her intention to withdraw from the purchase contract. In any case, the User may use the withdrawal form provided by PAESA as an annex to these conditions and which he/she will receive with his/her purchase, however, its use is not compulsory. Link to withdrawal form.
In order to meet the deadline for withdrawal, it is sufficient that the communication which expresses unequivocally the decision to withdraw is sent before the deadline.
In the event of withdrawal, PAESA will refund to the User all payments received, including delivery costs, without any undue delay and no later than 14 calendar days from the date on which PAESA is informed of the decision to withdraw by the User.
PAESA will refund the User using the same method of payment that was used to perform the initial purchase. This refund will not generate any additional cost to the User. However, PAESA may retain such reimbursement until it has received the goods or articles purchased, or until the User presents proof of return of the same, depending which condition is met first.
The User may return or send the products to PAESA by filling out the withdrawal form that must be submitted to the following e-mail: email@example.com from where further instructions will be sent by return mail.
He/she must do so without undue delay and, in any event, at the latest within 14 calendar days from the date on which PAESA was informed of the decision of withdraw. In addition, the User acknowledges that he/she will be liable for any decline in value of the products resulting from use other than that needed to establish the nature, characteristics, and operation of the property.
The User acknowledges that there are exceptions to the right of withdrawal, as laid down in article 103 of Royal Legislative Decree 1/2007, of 16 November, approving the revised text of the General Law for the Defence of Consumers and Users and other complementary laws. This includes, but is not limited to: Customised products; products which are likely to deteriorate or expire quickly; music or video CDs/DVDs without its packaging, as sealed at the factory; products that for reasons of hygiene or health are sealed and have been unsealed after delivery.
In any case, no refund will be made if the product has been used beyond the mere opening thereof, for products which are not in the same condition as when delivered, or which have suffered damage after delivery.
Furthermore, products must be returned using or including all original packaging, instructions and other documents accompanying them, if applicable, plus a copy of the purchase invoice.
The model withdrawal form may be downloaded from these conditions:
Return of defective products or those sent in error
If the User considers, at the time of delivery, that the product does not conform to the provisions of the contract or purchase order, he/she must contact PAESA immediately and inform it of the non-conformity (defect/error) by the same method or using the contact information provided in the previous section (Right of Withdrawal).
The User will then be informed about how to return the products, and these, once returned, will be examined and the User will be informed, within a reasonable period of time, if there will be a refund or, if applicable, the products will be replaced.
The refund or replacement of the product shall be made as soon as possible and in any event within 14 days of the date on which an email is sent confirming that there will be a refund or replacement of the non-conforming item.
The amount paid for those products that are returned due to a defect, when there is one, will be refunded in full, including the cost of delivery and costs incurred by the User to make the return. The refund will be carried out using the same payment method which the User used to pay for the purchase.
In any case, the User will always have the rights recognised in applicable law, as a consumer and user.
The User, as a consumer and user, enjoys warranties over the products that he/she purchases through this Website, in the terms legally established for each type of product, and PAESA shall therefore be liable for any non-conformity which becomes apparent within a period of two years from delivery of the product.
