DELIVERY AND RETURN PROCEDURE

 

This Procedure applies to Products ordered by Customers as a result of accessing the Services offered by the www.legendarydracula.com website operated by Legendary Dracula SRL.

 

Delivery

Please find below all useful information about the delivery process:

  • All products sold by Legendary Dracula are delivered exclusively on the territory of Romania;
  • All orders are delivered through our trusted partners - TNT and FanCourier courier companies. The delivery costs are borne by Legendary Dracula, regardless of size or number of packages
  • Delivery will take 3-10 business days from the order confirmation, but the delivery deadline may extend due to isolated situations (e.g. bad weather conditions, legal holidays, unpredictable technical problems, etc.). We will notify you if we encounter one of the above situations;

 

We have high standards of product safety during transport. That’s why we use high quality materials to pack the products you ordered. However, in the unfortunate situation where your product deteriorates during transport, we will do our best to replace it as soon as possible. This action could delay the delivery deadline by one to two days, but we consider it a necessary step in order to be able to meet your expectations;

 

If, at the delivery of the Products, the Customer is not found at the address indicated by the Customer in the Order accepted by Legendary Dracula, the delivery will be attempted once again, after which the Products will be returned and the Customer will bear the cost of a new shipment, regardless of the value of the Products ordered.

Return

If you are not satisfied with the product you receive, you can return it within 14 calendar days of receipt, without any penalties and without the need to invoke a reason. The only cost you will have to bear is the shipping charge for the return of the package.

 

If you have decided to return a product, it is necessary to communicate your intention of return. You can do this using one of the following ways:

  • By phone;
  • By E-mail;
  • By Contact Form

 

Once you have informed us, you can prepare the product for return. Find the return procedure below:

  • The returned product must arrive in our warehouse within 14 calendar days of the day you received it;
  • The product must be returned in its original packaging, along with the tax invoice (or a copy thereof) and all the documents, certificates and/or labels that accompanied it;
  • All sealed products (perfumery, sweets, beverages and certain cosmetics) can only be returned if they have not been unsealed. This condition also applies to toys - the box must be intact, show no signs of unwrapping/deterioration;
  • If all of the above conditions are met, you only need to seal the package and hand it over to the courier we have delegated to pick up the return from your possession;
  • Do not forget to provide us with the bank account (IBAN) in which you wish to refund the return value of the returned product. If you do not have a bank account, you can provide us with the account of a trusted person. The IBAN must contain 24 characters (figures and letters) and be denominated in RON;
  • We will refund the value of your return within 14 calendar days from when your return arrives in our warehouse. The refund will be made by bank transfer to the account mentioned by you;

COOKIES POLICY

 

This information document is intended for users to advice of the presence and use of cookies on the website www.legendarydracula.com

The information below is intended to inform the user about the placement, use, and administration of cookies used by the website www.legendarydracula.com

Please read carefully the following information:

This website uses its own and third parties cookies to provide users/members/customers with a much better browsing experience and services tailored to the needs and interests of everyone. In what we call “web 2.0,” “cookies” play an important role in facilitating the access and delivery of multiple services the user enjoys on the Internet, such as:

  • Customizing certain settings such as the language in which a website is viewed, the currency in which certain prices or tariffs are denominated, the keeping of options for different products in the shopping cart (and saving of these options) – thus generating the flexibility of the “shopping cart” (accessing old preferences by clicking the “forward” and “back” buttons)
  • Cookies provide website owners with valuable feedback on how their websites are used by users so they can make them even more effective and accessible to users.
  • Allow multimedia or other applications from other websites to be included in a particular website to create a more valuable, useful, and enjoyable browsing experience;
  • Improve the efficiency of online advertising.

WHAT IS A COOKIE?

An “Internet Cookie” (also known as “browser cookie” or “HTTP cookie” or simply “cookie”) is a small file of letters and numbers that will be stored on your computer, mobile terminal or other equipment of a user from which the Internet is accessed. The cookie is installed through a request issued by a web server to a browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome) and is completely “passive” (it does not contain software, viruses or spyware and cannot access the information on the user’s hard drive).

A cookie consists of 2 parts: the name and the content or the value of the cookie. The lifetime of a cookie is determined; technically, only the webserver that sent the cookie can access it again when a user returns to the website associated with that webserver.

Cookies themselves do not require personal information to be used and, in most cases, do not personally identify Internet users.

 

TYPES OF COOKIES:

Session cookies - they are temporarily stored in the cookie folder of the web browser for it to save them until the user exits the web site or closes the browser window (for example, when logging in/ logging off on a webmail account or on social networks).

Persistent cookies - These are stored on the hard drive of a computer or device (and generally depends on the cookie’s default lifetime). Persistent cookies include those placed by a website other than the one the user is currently visiting - known as “third party cookies” - which can be used anonymously to store the interests of a user, so that advertising is delivered as relevant as possible to users.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF COOKIES?

A cookie contains information linking a web browser (user) and a specific web-server (website). If a browser accesses that web-server again, it can read the already stored information and react accordingly. Cookies provide users with a pleasant browsing experience and support the efforts of many websites to provide user-friendly services: ex - online privacy preferences, website language options, shopping carts, or relevant advertising.

WHAT IS THE LIFETIME OF A COOKIE?

Cookies are managed by web servers. The life of a cookie may vary significantly, depending on the purpose for which it is placed. Some cookies are used exclusively for one session (session cookies) and are no longer retained once the user has left the website and some cookies are retained and re-used whenever the user returns to that website (“permanent cookies”). However, cookies can be deleted by a user at any time through browser settings.

WHAT ARE COOKIES PLACED BY THIRD PARTIES?

Certain sections of content on some websites may be provided through third parties / suppliers (e.g. news box, video or advertisement). These third parties may also place cookies through the website and they are called “third party cookies” because they are not placed by the owner of that website. Third-party vendors must also comply with the applicable law and the privacy policies of the website owner.

PERFORMANCE COOKIES

This type of cookie retains the user’s preferences on this website, so they no longer need to be set on every website visit.

 

VISITOR ANALYSIS COOKIES

Whenever a user visits this website, third-party analytics software generates a user analysis cookie. This cookie tells us if you have visited this website so far. The browser will tell us if you have this cookie, and if not, we will generate one. It allows the monitoring of the single users who visit us and how often they do it.

REGISTRATION COOKIES

When you sign up for this website, we generate a cookie that tells us if you are registered or not. Our servers use these cookies to show us your account and if you have permission for a particular service. It also allows us to associate any comments you post on our website with your username. If you did not select “keep me registered” this cookie will be automatically deleted when you close the browser or computer.

 

COOKIES FOR ADVERTISING

These cookies let us know whether or not you’ve seen an online ad, what its type is, and how long it has been since you saw the ad message. These cookies are also used to target online advertising. We may also use third-party cookies for better advertising targeting, to show for example, holiday ads if the user has recently visited an article on holidays. These cookies are anonymous, they store information about the viewed content, not the users. We also set up anonymous cookies through other websites hosting our advertisement. By accepting them, we can use them to recognize you as a visitor to that website if you later visit our website, we will be able to deliver advertising based on this information.

 

ADVERTISER COOKIES

Much of the advertising you find on this website belongs to third parties. Some of these parties use their own anonymous cookies to analyse how many people have been exposed to an ad, or to see how many people have been exposed multiple times to the same ad.

The companies that generate these cookies have their own privacy policies and this site does not have access to read or write these cookies. Third-party cookies can be used to show your target advertising on other websites, based on your browsing on this website.

 

OTHER THIRD PARTY COOKIES

On some pages, third parties can set their own anonymous cookies in order to track the success of an application, or to customize an application. Because of its use, this website cannot access these cookies, just as third parties cannot access cookies owned by this website. For example, when you share an article using the social network button on this website, that social network will record your activity.

 

WHAT TYPE OF INFORMATION IS STORED AND ACCESSED THROUGH THE COOKIES?

Cookies keep information in a small text file that allows a website to recognize a browser. The webserver will recognize the browser until the cookie expires or is deleted.

The cookie stores important information that enhances Internet browsing experience (e.g., setting the language of a website, keeping a user logged in to the webmail account, online banking security, keeping products in the shopping cart)

 

WHY ARE COOKIES IMPORTANT FOR THE INTERNET?

Cookies are the central focus of the efficient Internet functioning, helping to generate a friendly browsing experience and tailored to the preferences and interests of each user. Denying or disabling cookies can make some websites unusable. Denying or disabling cookies does not mean you will not receive online advertising - just that it will no longer be able to keep track of your preferences and interests highlighted by your browsing behaviour.

 

EXAMPLES OF IMPORTANT UTILIZATIONS OF COOKIES (WHICH DO NOT REQUIRE A USER TO BE LOGGED IN BY AN ACCOUNT):

Content and services tailored to user preferences - news categories, weather, sports, maps, public and government services, entertainment websites and travel services.

Offers tailored to users’ interests - remembering passwords, language preferences (e.g.: displaying search results in Romanian).

Retrieve child protection filters for content on the Internet (family mode options, safe search functions).

Limiting ad serving frequency - limiting the number of displays of an ad for a particular user on a website.

Providing more relevant advertising for the user.

Measurement, optimization, and analytics features - such as confirming a certain level of traffic on a website, what type of content is viewed, and how a user reaches a website (e.g. through search engines, directly from other websites, etc.). Websites run these analyses of their use to improve websites for the benefit of users.

 

SECURITY AND PROBLEMS REGARDING CONFIDENTIALITY

Cookies are NOT viruses! They use plain text formats.

They are not made up of pieces of code so they cannot be executed or auto-run. Consequently, they cannot duplicate or replicate on other networks to run or replicate again. As they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses.

Cookies can still be used for negative purposes. Because they store information about user preferences and browsing history, both on a particular website and on several other websites, cookies can be used as a form of Spyware. Many anti-spyware products are aware of this and consistently mark cookies to be deleted in anti-virus/anti-spyware removal/scanning procedures. In general, browsers have built-in privacy settings that provide different levels of cookie acceptance, shelf life, and automatic deletion after the user has visited a particular site.

Other security issues related to cookies

Since identity protection is very valuable and is the right of every internet user, it is advisable to know what issues cookies can create. As information between the browser and the website are transmitted constantly in both directions through them, if an attacker or unauthorized person intervenes in the data transmission path, the information contained in the cookie can be intercepted. Although very rarely, this can happen if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted network (e.g. an unsecured WiFi network). Other cookie-based attacks involve bad cookie settings on servers. If a website does not require the browser to use only encrypted channels, attackers can use this vulnerability to cheat browsers in sending information via unsecured channels. Attackers then use the information for the purpose of unauthorized access to certain websites. It is very important to be careful in choosing the most appropriate method of protecting personal information.

 

TIPS FOR A SAFE AND RESPONSIBLE BROWSING BASED ON COOKIES

Due to their flexibility and the fact that most of the most visited websites and the biggest ones use cookies, they are almost inevitable. Disabling cookies will not allow the user to access the most popular and used websites including Youtube, Gmail, Yahoo and others.

 

Tips that can help ensure that you browse without worries by using cookies:

Customize your browser settings for cookies to reflect a comfortable level for your cookie security.

If you are not bothered by cookies and you are the only person using your computer, you can set expiration long dates to store your browsing history and personal access data.

If you share your computer access, you can consider the browser setting to delete your individual browsing data each time you close your browser. This is a way to access websites that place cookies and delete any visiting information when you close the browsing session.

Install and constantly update your antispyware applications.

Many of the applications for detection and prevention of spyware include the detection of attacks on websites. This prevents your browser from accessing websites that could exploit browser vulnerabilities or download dangerous software. Make sure your browser is always up-to-date. Many of the cookies attacks are made by exploiting the weaknesses of the old versions of browsers. Because information is constantly transmitted in both directions between the browser and the website through them, if an attacker or unauthorized person interferes with the data transmission path, the information contained in the cookie can be intercepted. Although very rarely, this can happen if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted network (e.g. an unsecured WiFi network).

Cookies are everywhere and cannot be avoided if you want to enjoy access to the best and greatest websites on the Internet - local or international. With a clear understanding of how they work and the benefits they bring, you can take the necessary security measures so you can browse with confidence on the internet.

 

HOW CAN I STOP COOKIES?

Disabling and refusing to receive cookies can make some websites unfeasible or difficult to visit and use. Also, refusing to accept cookies does not mean you will not get/see online advertising anymore. It is possible to set up the browser so that these cookies are no longer supported or you can set the browser to accept cookies from a particular website. But for example, if you are not registered using cookies, you will not be able to leave comments.

All modern browsers offer the ability to change cookie settings. These settings are usually found in the “options” or “preferences” menu of your browser.
