    Withdrawal right

    SearchMyStar applies the right of withdrawal as stated by law.

    1. According to the art. N. 48 of D. Lgs. 6 September 2005, n. 206 (the so-called “Consumer code”), it will not be granted to the customer whom the star has already been given to, to exercise the right to withdraw from the contract.
    2. If the Customer, after having paid and before receiving any star, has already sent an E-mail to communicate his withdrawal, has to confirm his withdrawal to the Service Provider within 48 (forty-eight) hours by sending a registered letter with advice of delivery.
    3. If a star already occupied is chosen or if the star number is wrong, an error notice will be sent by E-mail to communicate the impossibility to go on.
      The customer can exercise the right of withdrawal within 48 (forty-eight) hours from the error notice sending. In case the customer does not exercise this right, another star will be automatically awarded.
    4. In case of any dispute the jurisdiction is the one of Parma – Italy.

    In short: in order to get the refund, you have to send a registered letter with advice of delivery to STAR A.A. Via Pezzalunga, 6 (42030) Ventasso Italy . Please notice that the expenses met by our Company (50% of the amount paid) are excluded from the refund. Refund will be made within 60 days. We have no obligation or liability for delays in names assignment from the Archive on this site.

    Archive, dedication

    SearchMyStar offers the chance to have a customized certificate in the electronic form (not the “star sale”, because stars are heritage of the universe – art. 1 Law 62 of 7/03/2001). The inclusion in the “Archive” by SearchMyStar makes no legal claim on the allocation of official names to stars in the universe. Only the IAU has the authority to assign names and recognizes the stars by assigning them a number. Purchasing our certificate and its publication of the dedication, you only agree that it is a special and unique gift and that no legal title is given or implied as a result of this “dedication”.
    SearchMyStar puts a dedication to the stars only and does not claim the right to be the official agency for the Item Description of the stars; the ‘International Astronomical Union only has the right to formalize the names of celestial bodies. Therefore, in no official international register you will find the name that the buyer chose for any reason whatsoever, with anyone (even bought in other competing sites).
