2. RETURN OF DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS
In anastasaki.gr, we take all possible steps to ensure that our products are packaged properly and carefully, for them to be delivered in the best possible state, without any damages. For this reason, the products available for shipment from the online store anastasaki.gr are packed with the utmost care and meticulousness (box, touch paper, bubble wrap). In addition, after consultation with the shipping company, we ship our products, with special labelling and appropriate packaging, which fully protect them from damage, during their shipment and storage. However, in case you discover any damages, the following steps should be followed:
When the shipping company delivers the package to the customer, each product must be checked and any reservations must be recorded on the shipping company’s delivery slip, in case of partial or total damage. If, at the time of delivery by the shipping company, you find that the package appears «damaged», f.e. there is damage to the packaging or the product, then you must not proceed with the delivery, but you must notify our COMPANY within twenty-four (24) hours, either by telephone, or online, through the contact form of our website or by e-mail, at the e-mail address email@example.com, based on the details under the tab «CONTACT», for the non-delivery and the justification for it, for us to examine potential damage. It is important, at the time of delivery by the employee of the shipping company, to check the products and especially, in case the packaging shows signs of wear, puncture or rupture. In this case, the customer is charged only with the shipping costs.
On the contrary, if the customer does not complain, when receiving the package in person and receives it without reservations, this means that the package was delivered in good condition.
After receiving the products, the customer should carefully remove the packaging paper and protective materials, with caution, not to cause damage to the products. If, when opening the package, the customer finds that the item has a manufacturing defect or wear (cracking – breaking – tampering), caused during shipping, the customer must declare the existence of a defect upon arrival (DOA), within twenty-four (24) hours from the delivery, accompanied by photographic material, to prove the defect of the product, either by telephone or online, through the contact form of our website or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, based on the details under the tab «CONTACT», in order to examine the existence of a defect and the possibility of its restoration, as well as to receive instructions for its return and replacement, free of charge for the customer. This period may, under conditions, be extended up to three (3) calendar days, based on proof that the defect could not be declared earlier.
If it is decided that the product should be returned, its return should take place, accompanied by the packaging and all the original documents, accompanying it (shipment bulletin, purchase document, etc.), in the exact condition, in which it was delivered, for us to attempt to restore it. If a defect should be found, after the delivery and the product’s packaging does not exist or it was received by the shipping company employees, at the time of the item’s delivery, the packaging is not required. In case the products are returned damaged or incomplete, anastasaki.gr has the right to claim compensation from the customer, the amount of which will be determined by the condition of the products and to proceed, unilaterally and without further ado, to a total or partial netting of his claim against the customer.
Please note that if the customer has received partially defective work (small wear) and decides to send it back, in any case, the returned will be replaced with a new product, same or other, of greater value and not with the same product, repaired.
In the rare case, where the product is completely damaged upon delivery and after your above communication with our COMPANY, you will not be asked to return the product, except to forward the above documents, which accompanied your order, along with the above photographic evidence, in order for the irreparably defective content of your order to be replaced and forwarded again to the customer, with the shipping costs covered by our COMPANY.
The return of the products will take place either through the selected shipping company or in the physical store of the company “OPTO – ANASTASAKI G.P.”. After the return of the products, the defect reported by the customer will be checked by the COMPANY and then, we will contact the customer, for information, on the results of the check and on the possibility of its restoration or replacement. If the defect is found, the product shall be repaired or replaced, respectively. Cancellation of the transaction, with a refund takes place only if it is impossible to repair the product in a reasonable time and it is not possible for the COMPANY to find or manufacture another product of corresponding or better characteristics or equivalent value, for the replacement. In this unique case of cancellation of the transaction, the refund of the original purchase’s value is made in the same way, by which the initial payment was made to the COMPANY.
The shipping costs, both for the return of the products to the COMPANY and for the shipping of the replaced product to the customer, are borne by the COMPANY.
The customer has the right of unjustified withdrawal, within fourteen (14) calendar days from the delivery of the products, as indicated on the purchase document from the physical store or on the receipt of the shipping company, in accordance with the applicable consumer protection legislation. In this case, the return declaration takes place, by sending an e-mail to email@example.com, based on the details under the tab «CONTACT», where your order number, personal information and contact number should be mentioned, without having to tell us why you wish to return them.
In particular, withdrawal from the contract and refund for the price of the returned products shall take place, after you inform us in writing of the request for return of the products, by simple letter or by filling in the relevant withdrawal form, which should be forwarded to our company, in the above mentioned ways. In both cases, the details of the document (number, date, name), the description of the product, for which the withdrawal is exercised and contact details of the withdrawing customer should be provided.
In order for us to accept the return, the products must not have been used, be in excellent condition, not damaged, be in their full original packaging (box, touch paper, bubble wrap) and with all the contents of the original packaging, such as the artist’s certificate of authenticity. In addition, it should be accompanied by all necessary documents proving the transaction (retail receipt, invoice, shipping slip, any contact form, etc.), by the person who originally purchased the product and whose details are included in the purchase document. In cases, where the buyer is a business, the returned products shall be accompanied by the shipping slip.
There is no right of withdrawal in:
1) goods manufactured on special order, in accordance with the specific directions of the consumer or clearly individualized for the consumer (custom – made),
(2) service contracts, after the full provision of the service, if the performance began with the customer’s prior explicit consent and with his recognition that he would lose his right of withdrawal, as soon as the contract would be fully executed by the supplier,
(3) contracts, where the consumer has specifically requested for a visit from the supplier, in order for him to carry out urgent repairs or maintenance work. If, in the case of such a visit, the supplier provides services, in addition to those specifically requested by the consumer or goods, other than spare parts, which have been compulsorily used, during maintenance work or during repairs, the right of withdrawal shall apply to those additional services or goods.
Within fourteen (14) days from the delivery of the returned products from anastasaki.gr, given that the above formalities and deadlines have been complied with, the products are in their original condition, not damaged and accompanied by the above necessary supporting documents, our company will refund to the customer with the amount of the value of these products, with which the customer has been charged, using the same means of payment used by the customer for the initial transaction, unless the customer has explicitly agreed to a different method.
The return products can only be received from the address, which you had originally indicated for their shipment and which you have indicated to us in writing. The return of the item is accepted, only if the customer has previously paid any amount covered by the COMPANY for the product’s shipment to them.
Shipping costs for the return of the products, due to withdrawal, are borne exclusively by the customer. When the package is returned, the shipment must not take place by the recipient’s charge. Otherwise, the shipping costs will be cleared and deducted from the price of the sale, which is to be refunded to the withdrawing customer.
We will accept the return of the products, if you pack them, so that they are completely protected, during shipment and send the package with the shipping company, which has delivered your order, «To the Return Department» of the COMPANY. We recommend that you send the package by courier or registered mail, through the company, which you had selected for the delivery of the package. The COMPANY is not responsible for any loss or destruction of the products, during their shipping, for return.
On the contrary, if the returned product has been damaged, either during shipping for its return, or by fault of the customer, or its value has been reduced by handling, which was not necessary to determine the nature, characteristics and operation of the products, our COMPANY will assess the value of the losses and the amount of the reduction in value and in case the latter is obliged to make a refund to the customer, the corresponding amount of the loss will be deducted from the total amount of the refund.
In any case of non-fulfilment of these conditions, we reserve the right not to accept the refund, due to withdrawal and we will not refund you with the money of your original purchase.
In addition to the rights granted by the return policy, in any case, all rights applicable to consumers are recognized by the applicable provisions and legislation, relating to the sales contracts and consumer protection, as well as any right arising, regarding the conditions of the product’s warranty.

Especially, in case of payment by credit card, the COMPANY will be obliged to inform the issuing Bank of the cancellation of the transaction and the Bank will, then, carry out any transaction necessary, based on the contract drawn up with the customer, with no other responsibility of the COMPANY. The COMPANY, following this notification, is not responsible for the time and method of execution of the settlement, which is regulated by the abovementioned contract.
In case of payment by cash on delivery, the refund amount will be credited to an account, declared by the customer, to our COMPANY, upon communication and if the legal conditions for the refund are confirmed. If the customer had chosen the option «receive from the store», the refund will be completed through the physical store of our COMPANY.
In case of payment by bank deposit, a reverse bank transfer will be made from the company’s accounts to the customer, to the account, from which the deposit was made.
