  • Personalized items
  • Music CDs / DVDs, without their original wrapping sealed
  • Products that are not suitable for return for hygienic reasons or related to health protection and have been opened after delivery. By way of example, perfumes with a seal must be returned in their original packaging, intact and in perfect condition to be resold: opening the seal makes this product unsuitable for its subsequent marketing; consequently, any perfume that has a seal that has been opened after delivery cannot be returned and will not be accepted by Mediteránea nor will its price be refunded to the buyer.
