6. E-volve shall consider any requests for order cancellation received by E-volve before the Products have been shipped to the Customer.
7. If a specific Product in your order is no longer available, E-volve shall be under no obligation to supply the Product in question; rather, it shall only be required to promptly inform you of this situation. If only some of the Products in the order are available, E-volve will contact you to ask whether you intend to cancel the order or if you are willing to receive only the Products available and/or any substitutions among those available. In that case, you will be charged only the amount relating to the Products you will receive.
8. E-volve reserves the right to decrease, at its discretion, the quantity of Products which may be purchased on its Website.

It is possible to withdraw this authorisation at any time from the Pennyblack account page, by writing to our Customer Care (email@example.com) or directly from your PayPal account page.

If the Products ordered are required to undergo customs controls (based on the destination country), all customs charges related to the clearance of the goods shall be borne by the Customer. If you decide to refuse the order once it has reached customs, E-volve will not authorise the refund for the goods, which shall be left with the customs office.

23. In addition to that set forth above (Articles 20-21), the right of withdrawal is subject to the following conditions, on pain of forfeiture of the warranty.
Before sending the defective Products back to E-volve, you must request authorization for the return. If you are a registered user, to request authorization of returns, access the section in your personal area “My Orders”, click on the link “Return Product”, and schedule the home pick up online.
If you made purchases without registering, and do not have your own account, you must directly contact customer care to schedule the home pick up.

The amounts paid by the Customer will always exclusively be refunded to the Customer that made the payment.
In the event that the above requirements are not met, or in the event that the defect you have reported is not found, you shall not have the right to refund of the amount paid to E-volve. Nonetheless, you will only have the right to pick up the Products returned at the Manifatture del Nord S.r.l. warehouse, at your own risk and expense. If you do not request to have the returned Products sent back to you within thirty (30) days from the related notification from E-volve, E-volve shall have the right to hold them as well as to keep the amount received for the transaction.

26. The maximum limit of total liability of E-volve may in no event exceed the amount paid by the Customer to purchase the Product.
27. If one or more of the provisions of these T&C should result null and void, voidable, illegal or unenforceable, this shall not result in the unenforceability of the T&C. The provision in question shall be replaced with a similar valid provision which takes due account of the intent and the content of the original provision, in compliance and in accordance with regulations in force.
Lastly, we inform you that requests to have purchased items tailored will in no case be granted. Likewise, no costs will be reimbursed for the independent tailoring or adjustment of purchased items, which will remain entirely at the customer's own expense. In the event of a defective item, the customer is invited to contact Customer Service as soon as possible within the product's return period, for any applicable action regarding this matter.
28.
