For situations in which the reasons for the return are not the responsibility of COSTA VERDE, the return will be accepted, after checking the good condition of the returned items and their packaging, with a refund of the amount paid by the customer, less the costs of transport of the delivery (even if these have been accepted by COSTA VERDE) and the costs of transport of the return, in accordance with the values defined in point 4 of this document.
