5) Order confirmation and purchase contracts:

All orders will be interpreted as proposed purchase contracts with Freddy for the products ordered, considering each one on its own. The contract shall be considered entered into when Freddy sends a confirmation email to the email address provided by the Client. Said email shall contain all the information relating to the product purchased, its price, delivery fees, the right to withdraw and the legal guarantee. The expected delivery date, on the other hand, will be indicated in a subsequent shipment confirmation email. If the product ordered isn’t available for exceptional reasons, Freddy will notify the Client in a timely manner, specifying what those reasons are. Freddy will then reimburse the price paid for the product (if paid for in advance), pursuant to point 12 below.

6) Products:

The essential qualities of each product can be found on www.freddy.com/ext_en/ within each product description. Note: The images and colours of the products being sold may not perfectly correspond to the actual look and colour of the products delivered due to the settings and type of internet browser and monitor used.
All Freddy products come with an identifying tag, which is an integral part of the item and which must not be removed if the Client wishes to exercise his/her right to return said item. The Seller reserves the right to deny the return of products that are without their identifying tag. To find your size, click here.

Please expect the following processing times:

  • approximately six business days for the rejected package to arrive to the FREDDY warehouse;
  • approximately six business days to verify its contents;
  • Freddy will fulfil all its obligations within fourteen days of the formal notice of refusal. However, for some types of payment cards, the time required to release the amount due depends exclusively on the banking system and may reach their natural expiry date (typically 24-25 days from the date of authorisation).

Once the refund has been processed, Freddy S.p.A. will not be held liable for any direct or indirect damages caused by a delay in the banking system to release the amount involved.

8) Prices:

Product prices, shipping costs and available payment methods are those listed on the website. All amounts are in euros (€).

13) Product delivery:

To avoid issues with deliveries, the Client must indicate the street number and flat number, where applicable, in the Complete Address field. If you want to receive your order at a business address, remember to select “At my company” when asked “Where do you want to receive the parcel?” during the ordering process, and fill in the “Company Name” field with the name of the company or business where we will deliver the parcel. Delivery is understood to mean street level delivery; if that isn't possible for you, you must let the Customer Service team know.
If the Client receives a package that is not intact, or that is damaged and/or with evident signs of tampering, s/he must notify the courier and sign the transport document adding the wording “with reserve”. This will allow protect the Client against any kind of anomaly found after opening the parcel. All anomalies must be promptly reported to Freddy’s Customer Service. In any case, the contents of the parcel, even if intact, must be checked within twenty-four hours of delivery and, if no complaints are sent to Freddy’s Customer Care department within this period, no later claims will be accepted for faults or inconsistencies with respect to the product or service ordered.
If, on the other hand, the goods delivered have defects or faults, Clients who are natural persons are guaranteed the rights provided for by the Italian Consumer Code. For further information see point 15 below.

14) Right of return:

Pursuant to art. 52 of the Italian Consumer Code (Leg. Decree n. 206 of 6 September 2005), Customers* have the right to withdraw from sales agreements that are entered into online with Freddy without any penalties and without providing a reason, simply by notifying Freddy of their wish to withdraw within 14 (fourteen) days from the date the Customer or a third party designated by the Customer (it cannot be the carrier) has received the item purchased from the official website: www.freddy.com. The right to withdraw is governed by the terms and conditions of Italian law (Leg. Decree 206/ 2005).
In addition, because Customer satisfaction is a priority and in order to facilitate the return process, Freddy will also llow you to directly return the item purchased on www.freddy.com without having to provide a reason for doing so and without having to notify Freddy of your decision in advance, within 40 (forty) days from the order date by following the instructions on the package and also listed below.
It is not possible to request a replacement item. To receive a different product, you will need to complete a new purchase. In addition, you cannot request a return or exercise your right to withdraw for products purchased on websites other than the official one www.freddy.com.Returns and the right to withdraw cannot be applied to products purchased in brick-and-mortar shops.

*any natural person who purchases goods for purposes that are not related to their professional activity or business, i.e. purchased WITHOUT providing a VAT no. on the order form.

What can I return?

  • If you purchased multiple products in a single order, you can proceed with a partial return; for example, if you ordered multiple, different products, you can return just one. The partial return option is expressly excluded for all products which are sweatshirt+trousers or t-shirt+trousers sets, such as COMPLETE OUTFITS, TRACKSUITS, WR.UP®-IN TRACKSUITS AND OTHER GARMENT SETS. These products must be returned as a set. We will NOT accept partial returns containing just one of the two pieces that make up the product.
  • All items sold by Freddy S.p.A. come with an identifying tag, which is an integral part of the item. The item being returned must be undamaged and complete, with all its parts (original product bag/packaging, tags, labels and additional accessories). We thus recommend that you try on all items without removing the tag and without damaging the package. In addition, please remember that, pursuant to art. 57 par. 2 of the Italian Consumer Code, you will be responsible for the loss of value of items returned to Freddy S.p.A. due to having used the items in any way except for that necessary to verify their properties, characteristics and functioning.
  • Pursuant to art. 59 of the Italian Consumer Code, the right to withdraw does not apply if the Consumer has purchased custom-made or personalized products, or sealed items that are not suitable for returns for hygienic or health/safety reasons that have been opened after their delivery. For that reason, the following garments are expressly excluded from the right to withdraw and cannot be returned for health/hygiene reasons if the sealed package has been opened: underwear and socks/hosiery.

How do I return a product?

You can return products to Freddy via two different methods. More precisely:
1) In addition to the right to withdraw established by Italian and European law and as specified in point 2, Freddy, in order to facilitate the return procedure, also lets you directly return items within 40 (forty) days from the order date, by following the instructions in the product package, without having to notify Freddy of your decision in advance. Instructions on how to return a product are found in the form included in the package, and can be consulted here.
2) On the other hand, to exercise the right to withdraw from the sales agreement as established by the Italian Consumer Code, in the terms established by law, you must notify us of your decision to withdraw from the sales contract through an unequivocal statement no later than 14 (fourteen) days from the delivery of the product. For that purpose, you can use the withdrawal form found here at the bottom, though it is not obligatory. Any other unequivocal statement expressly stating your decision to withdraw from the contract sent by registered post (to Freddy SpA, Via San Rufino, 31M - 16043 Chiavari (GE) - Italy), fax (to +39 0185 5910300), e-mail ([email protected]) or any other suitable means of communication, will also be accepted. The term established for withdrawal shall be considered met if the Customer sends his/her statement of withdrawal no later than 14 (fourteen) days from the date on which the Customer or a third party designated by the Customer (it cannot be the carrier) receives the item purchased in his/her physical possession. If you decide to withdraw, you must return the product(s) after having provided notice of your decision. The products must be returned without delay, no later than 14 (fourteen) days from the date on which you notified us of your decision to withdraw from the contract with Freddy S.p.A. We will use the shipment date of the item to determine compliance with this term: i.e. you must ship the item(s) no later than 14 (fourteen) days from the notification date. Items must be shipped to Freddy S.p.A. c/o Snatt Logistica S.p.a., Via Ruffilli 9, 20042 Pessano con Bornago (MI), Italy.

How can I ship the product(s)?

In both cases mentioned in the previous section, the items must be returned to FREDDY S.P.A C/O SNATT LOGISTICA - Via Ruffilli 9 - 20042 Pessano con Bornago (MI) – Italy with tracked shipping via courier, post or another type of carrier. You must pay the return shipping fees, which will depend on the shipping method you use. We do not accept returns with payment upon delivery. You are entirely responsible for the shipping fees, risk and responsibility until our warehouse has accepted the package.

How should I prepare the package?

  • If still in good condition, you can use the packaging the item was originally shipped in.
  • The product must be undamaged, intact and complete with all of its parts (bag/original packaging, labels, tags, accessories included). Remember that you must also return the identifying tag with the item(s).
  • Include a copy of the return form/statement, indicating the item(s) being returned and your reason for returning it/them in the package.
  • On the outside of the package, apply the shipping label provided by your courier, post office or other carrier, being sure to cover any old bar codes on the package.
  • FREDDY does not accept returns for items which are not in the same condition that they were received in.

Return processing times

As soon as the courier of your choosing has picked up the package, it will generally reach our warehouse in around 5-9 days.
Once the package has reached our warehouse, the processing times are generally:

  • the warehouse staff will verify, within 10 business days, that the items returned comply with the Return policy;
  • if the contents are considered compliant with the Return Policy, the cost of the items will be refunded. For information on refund time lines and methods, without prejudice to compliance with the 14 (fourteen) day term (starting from the moment Freddy was notified of your decision), please see the following paragraph.

Refund times and methods

Pursuant to art. 56 of the Italian Consumer Code, if the products are returned correctly, you will be refunded all payments made to Freddy, including the delivery costs, without undue delay and, in any case, no later than 14 (fourteen) days from the date we were informed of your decision to withdraw from the sales agreement (if there is no prior notification of withdrawal, from the moment we receive the returned items). Please note that you will not be reimbursed for any additional costs resulting from choosing a shipping option other than the standard, least expensive method offered by Freddy. In addition, in the case of partial returns, the flat-rate delivery costs will not be refunded. You must pay the return shipping fees, which will depend on the shipping method you use. We do not accept returns with payment upon delivery.
Compliant with art. 56 par. 3 of the Italian Consumer Code, refunds can be suspended until the item is received, or until the Consumer has demonstrated that the item has been shipped. Only after having received the returned item(s) from the Consumer, or having received proof of their shipment, Freddy will issue a full refund. If it is found that the value of the items has decreased, Freddy will send an email noting the amount subtracted as a reduction of the refund. Freddy will then proceed with the refund of the amount due via the payment method used by the Customer when purchasing the product, as quickly as possible. Without prejudice to compliance with the 14 (fourteen) day term (starting from the moment Freddy S.p.A. is informed of the return) required to refund the amount paid by the consumer for the purchase of the item(s), the actual time to credit or refund the amount(s) will depend on the payment method used:

  • If you paid by credit card, prepaid card or Paypal, the refund will be made in 2-5 business days after the warehouse staff has checked the returned item(s). Depending on the method of payment and on your bank, it might take 3 to 14 business days for the amount to appear on your account. NOTE: The time required to redeem the payment with some types of cards depends solely on the bank, and may in some cases be made on the natural expiry (usually 24-25 days from the date of authorization).
  • If you return an item paid for entirely or in part with FREDDY360° credit, the value of the credit corresponding only to the items returned will be refunded to your Freddy360° credit total.
NOTE: If using a coupon when checking out, the relative value of the discount is applied proportionately to the products purchased. To get a complete refund, you must return all the products that were part of the order. For complete returns, you will be refunded for the entire price actually paid, net the value of any coupons. In addition, in the latter case, Freddy’s Customer Service will send you a new coupon of equal value. Partial order returns are possible, however, in this case, you will be refunded the price of the products returned minus the discount applied to them. For partial returns, coupons expressed as a percentage of the purchase cannot be reactivated.

15) Legal Guarantee:

Freddy S.p.A. guarantees the Consumer, pursuant to and by effect of European Directive 1999/44/EC and Italian Legislative Decree n. 206/2005 (Consumer Law), that all products are free of design and material defects and comply with the description published on the website, for a period of 2 (two) years from the date the products are delivered to the Consumer.
The application of any and all guarantees is excluded in cases of use, repair, washing, drying, ironing or manipulation/handling of the product that do not comply with those of the product itself and/or the relative instructions/warnings provided by Freddy S.p.A., that is, those listed in the illustrative documents of reference, tags or labels.
Pursuant to art. 132 of the Consumer Code, all defects that appear within 6 (six) months from delivery of the product are assumed to have already existed on that date (unless this hypothesis is incompatible with the nature of the product or with the nature of the defect). Therefore, exclusively in these cases, the Consumer is excluded from the burden of proof of proper use of the product. In any case, Freddy S.p.A. retains the right to provide evidence to the contrary.
Under penalty of invalidation of this guarantee, the Consumer must report any defects and/or non-conformities by and no later than 2 (two) months from their discovery, sending an email to Freddy S.p.A. at [email protected], including a request containing the following information:

  • Description of the defect and/or the faulty elements found
  • The following documentation: at least 1 photograph of the product, the order confirmation sent by Freddy S.p.A. and/or the tax receipt
  • Order number
  • Order date
  • Name
  • Surname
  • Email address
  • Product code
  • Product name
  • Size
  • Quantity
All other statements that unequivocally indicate that the defect has been reported remain valid. Once the statement and the relative documentation requested as a preliminary procedural matter have been received, Freddy S.p.A. will assess whether the defects and/or non-conformities reported by the Consumer via Freddy's Customer Service are ostensibly covered by the conformity guarantee or not, notifying the Consumer of its decision through the email address indicated in the statement sent via email, authorising or denying the return of the product(s). A copy of the return authorisation must be included in the return package.
If Freddy S.p.A. denies the request, the reasons will be listed in the response email.
Authorisation to return the item(s) shall not, in any way, constitute a recognition of defect or non-conformity. The latter will be assessed only once the item has been returned to the warehouse.
Products that have been approved for return by Freddy S.p.A. must be sent by the Consumer via the courier indicated in the return authorisation with the shipping costs to be paid for by Freddy S.p.A., or via a different means to be paid for by the Consumer.
The package must contain the item(s) being returned, with the original packaging where possible, a copy of the return authorisation, and a copy of the email sent to inform of the defect and/or irregularity.
The Consumer must ship the product(s) within 14 (fourteen) days after reporting the defect and/or non-conformity and, in any case, only after having received the authorisation of Freddy S.p.A.
If no defect is found, the item will be returned within about 30 (thirty) days from the date of return delivery, with the shipping expenses to be paid by the Consumer.
If a defect is found, Freddy S.p.A. will propose one of the following solutions to the Consumer within 10 (ten) days from having received the product (or, in any case, within a reasonable period, even if longer, in the case of complex investigations):
1. Free repair;
2. Free replacement;
3. A price reduction;
4. A full refund of the price paid, keeping the item at the warehouse.
In any case, the Consumer can choose between Freddy S.p.A. repairing or replacing the product, without additional costs applied to either option, unless the request is objectively impossible or excessively burdensome compared to the other option pursuant to the criteria established by article 130 paragraph 4 of the Consumer Code. The Consumer also retains the right to request an appropriate price reduction, or to terminate the contract should one of the conditions of article 130, paragraph 7, sections a), b) and c) of the Consumer Code apply.
Should the Consumer choose the replacement of the product or the partial reimbursement of the price paid, the shipment of the product to the Consumer will be paid for and handed by Freddy S.p.A. in a subsequent reasonable amount of time (circa ten days).
Should the Consumer choose to repair the product, subject to the intervention of the service department, Freddy S.p.A. will inform the Consumer of the outcome of the repair within the following 20 (twenty) days (or, in any case, within a reasonable period, even if longer, in the case of complex repairs and/or interventions). The return shipping to the Consumer, paid for by Freddy S.p.A., will occur within a reasonable period (circa ten days).
Should Freddy S.p.A. be obliged to reimburse the Consumer for the entire or partial amount paid for the product, the reimbursement will take place, when possible, through the same means of payment used by the Consumer when purchasing the product, or via wire transfer. In any case, said reimbursement will occur within circa 14 (fourteen days), starting from the notification of reimbursement or, if subsequent, the transmission of the Consumer’s banking details. It will thus always be the duty of the Consumer to notify Freddy S.p.A. of the banking information to be used for the refund, sending the necessary details to [email protected]
Minor defects or non-conformities that do not qualify or are too burdensome to qualify for repair or replacement do not entitle the Consumer to the right to terminate the contract. Direct actions to enforce non-conformities and defects not concealed by the seller with fraud shall lapse, in any case, after 26 (twenty-six) months from the delivery of the product(s).
