In the Shop, details of the products’ characteristics and their prices are provided. The prices indicated in the Shop are in Euros and include VAT, unless otherwise indicated (although prices are also currently shown in pounds, yen and dollars), with the shipping costs being provided during the purchase process.
Before the process to finalise the transaction begins, Casa Batlló makes these conditions, which constitute the contract with the user, available to the user, who may save and reproduce them.
17.3. Supply and payment of products of the Shop
Any users that acquire a product via the Shop should make the payment using the payment systems specifically set out in the purchase process.
Any order placed on the website of Casa Batlló should be paid for immediately following the confirmation of the order. By placing an order, the user is making an offer to purchase the products they have selected, subject to the conditions of sale set out herein. Casa Batlló may accept their offer or not, at its discretion.
From the moment the transaction is completed, within twenty-four (24) hours Casa Batlló will send the user an email confirming the purchase, containing the essential conditions of the transaction, including these conditions of sale, accepted by the user.
Casa Batlló will temporary store the electronic documents in which the purchase and sale contract is formalised, these being understood as the user’s order and the order confirmation. These documents will be written in Spanish and English.
The order confirmation sent by Casa Batlló is not valid as an invoice, only as a receipt of purchase. If the user requires an invoice, they may write to email@example.com to request one.
The user shall have right to receive the invoice in paper format. To issue the electronic invoice, where applicable, Casa Batlló shall obtain the user’s prior express consent, after asking them how they would like the electronic invoice to be sent. Any user that has given their consent to receive the electronic invoice may revoke this consent, after having been informed by Casa Batlló of how to do so.

Although Casa Batlló will make every effort to supply to the user the products listed in their order confirmation, there may be occasions in which it is impossible for it to supply these products, for example, if they are no longer manufactured, are not available, or it is impossible to get the products or one of their components from the manufacturer or distributor. In such cases, Casa Batlló may offer the user an available product of similar characteristics or of superior quality, without increasing the price, and the user may choose between this product or the refund of the cost of the unavailable product. In this case, the user may exercise their rights of withdrawal and resolution, in the same terms as if it were the item initially requested.
17.4. Home delivery service of the Shop
The territorial scope of the sales via the Shop is worldwide. Products purchased via the Shop will be sent to the delivery address indicated by the user once the payment has been checked, without improper delays and within a maximum delivery time of thirty (30) calendar days from the date of the sale being finalised.
The Casa Batlló delivery service is carried out in collaboration with well established logistics operators. Orders will not be delivered to Post Office boxes or to hotels or other non-permanent addresses. The cost of shipments is not included in the price of products. Upon purchasing products, the user will be informed of the precise cost of shipment. Expenses corresponding to duties and customs are not included in the price of products and, where applicable, they should be paid by the user. If the user does not pay these expenses and/or in the event of delays non attributable to Casa Batlló and/or the transport company, the delivery time set out in clause 3.4.1. will be suspended until these circumstances are resolved.
Products will not be sent to countries whose legislation forbids or do not allow for home deliveries, except for if the user consigns as a delivery point the address of a company and/or an address in that country that is suitable for carrying out the delivery. If this clause is not complied with by the user, if new shipping costs are incurred for Casa Batlló, it may recharge them to the user.
The user undertakes to provide an address at which the order can be delivered within the ordinary timetable of merchandise deliveries. If this obligation is not complied with, Casa Batlló will not be responsible for any delay or inability to deliver the requested order.
The shipping costs include the specific insurance offered by the transport company. In the event of loss or impairment, the user may be entitled to compensation. Such compensation will be subject to the corresponding claim being made by the user to Casa Batlló and by Casa Batlló to the company responsible for the shipment, and it will only be paid if a response is received from that company assuming responsibility for the loss or impairment and if it indeed makes the compensation payment pursuant to the conditions of the insurance included in its services.
The delivery will be considered to have been successfully completed upon delivery to the address provided, with the signature of the courier company’s corresponding delivery note serving as proof of delivery, even if the signature is from a person other than the buyer. With the exception of cases in which the buyer expressly specifies it in the purchase, Casa Batlló will understand that the person at the designated address has the user’s authorisation to receive the product.
17.5. Right of withdrawal
The user has the right to withdraw from his/her purchase contract within fourteen (14) calendar days without the need for justification. This period starts when the user or a third party assigned by the user (other than the transport company) acquires the material possession of the goods.
To exercise the right of withdrawal, the user may contact Casa Batlló by email at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org and notify (their name, full address and, where applicable, telephone number, fax number and email address) their decision to withdraw from the contract by making an unequivocal statement (for example, a letter sent by mail, fax or email).

The costs of returning the product shall be payable by the user or buyer, including the shipping, rates, duties and any other taxes that may be incurred as a result of the return, unless the user chooses to arrange with Casa Batlló to return the item in the offices of Casa Batlló, in which case no additional costs whatsoever will be reimbursed.
The right of withdrawal may not be exercised when the products are not returned in their original packing and when they are not in perfect condition.
Furthermore, returns of articles that can deteriorate or expire quickly are not permitted, nor are returns of articles that have been modified and/or customised at the customer’s request or goods that have been unsealed and that are not allowed for health reasons (underwear, items for personal hygiene). Casa Batlló will check if products are in the same original conditions when they are returned. Articles that are returned incomplete, broken, damaged, impaired or dirty will not be reimbursed.
The withdrawal will result in the refund of the amount paid for the product, excluding shipping costs, rates, duties and any other taxes or expenses that the user has paid for the purchase, delivery and return of the products. Casa Batlló will pay the refund within the fourteen (14) calendar days following the date of withdrawal, using the same method of payment as the user employed for the initial transaction, unless the user has expressly arranged otherwise.
Casa Batlló may withhold the reimbursement until it has received the product or until the user has presented proof of its return, whichever occurs first.
In the event that the user has any questions, issues, complaints and/or to exercise his/her rights, they may send an email to the address firstname.lastname@example.org.
17.6. Return of defective products
3.6.1. Casa Batlló will only permit changes or refunds of products after the purchase has been made, in the event that they are defective, in accordance with the legal guarantees of the products supplied, or if the user exercises their right of withdrawal from the purchase in the terms set out in the previous section.
3.6.2. The refund must take place during the two (2) months following the purchase confirmation date. All the products to be returned must be in the same state in which they were delivered, with the original packing and labels.

Once it has been checked that the return has been made correctly and the terms and conditions have been respected, Casa Batlló will proceed to initiate the replacement or reimbursement process. If the client does not wish to have the product replaced and chooses reimbursement, the refund amount will be paid to the same card as the one the client used to make the payment. Rates, customs duties and similar expenses will be at the user’s expense. Once the order is given by Casa Batlló, making the payment will be the exclusive responsibility of its banking institution. In the event of loss or damage of the products or delay of the shipment, the shipping company will be responsible and the terms and conditions of shipping shall apply, with Casa Batlló bearing no liability to the user in this regard.
3.6.4. In cases in which not all the conditions of return are met, Casa Batlló will not be able to accept the return and will inform the user of this by email. Rejected articles will be at the customer’s disposal for two (2) months, and they may go to collect them after informing Casa Batlló beforehand (Pg. de Gràcia, nº 43, 08007 Barcelona, Spain), or they may request them to be sent, assuming all the costs of the new delivery beforehand.
