There are products, which due to limited stocks, may have a longer delivery and this information is available on the product page.
In case the same order includes items subject to different delivery periods, the delivery period for the whole order will be that of the item with the longest delivery period.
In case we run out of stock, the customer will be contacted by email about the new expected delivery date and he/she will decide whether to maintain or cancel the order.
The foreseeable time for delivery of goods is set in the information associated with each item. Additional information regarding the delivery times may be requested by calling +351 91 85 43 751, weekdays between 9am and 6pm, or via the e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org.

a) Out of stock;
b) Unavailability of the item;
c) If Pó de Barro considers that there has been misconduct by the buyer or inaccuracies in the personal data recorded.
The customer may return the product within 14 days of receiving it. Within that same period the customer may file a complaint about any defects or inadequacy of the product compared to what was ordered, being the responsibility of Pó de Barro.
The return should be made using the form available on the website for this purpose or by email sent to the address firstname.lastname@example.org, always mentioning the order number. In the complaint, the Customer shall expressly indicate the reasons for complaining.
