2.3 Once the order form has been received, the Seller
shall send an order confirmation containing information on the characteristics
of the purchase and the price to the e-mail address indicated by the Customer.
3. Items characteristics and availability
3.1 Each item is accompanied by an information page that illustrates its main characteristics (Information Sheet).
3.2 The images and descriptions on the Website reproduce as faithfully as possible the characteristics of the items offered for sale. However, the images and colours may differ from the real ones due to the settings of the computer systems or computers used to display them, or due to their size or in relation to any accessory products. Such images must therefore be understood as indicative and within the tolerances of use.
3.3 All orders for items are subject to their availability. Therefore, in the event of supply problems, or if there are no items in stock, the Seller reserves the right to provide the Consumer with information on replacement products of equal or higher quality and value, which the latter may decide to order. If the Customer does not wish to place an order for such replacement items, all amounts already paid shall be refunded.
4. Items prices and shipping costs
4.1 All the prices of the items published on the Website are inclusive of Value Added Tax, but exclude shipping costs, which must therefore be added to the total amount due.
4.2 The Seller reserves the right to change the price of the items at any time and without prior notice. In any case, it is understood that the price charged to the Customer will be the one indicated on the Site at the time the order is placed, therefore any variations (upwards or downwards) following the transmission of the order will not be taken into account.
4.3 Shipping costs, if any, are expressly and separately indicated on the order form, before the user proceeds to transmit it.
4.4 The shipping costs for the entire national territory amount to Euro 6 and are applied to all orders of an amount lower than Euro ninety-nine (99).
4.5 For shipments to be made within the European Community, shipping costs of nine (9) Euro will be charged, excluding the United Kingdom, Iceland, Norway, Switzerland, Cyprus and Malta, the costs of which will amount to thirteen (13) Euro, for all orders for an amount lower than Euro one hundred and twenty (120).
Any customs charges shall be cleared by the recipient, therefore the Customer is invited to contact the customs authorities of his country in advance in order to check the costs and any import limits.
5. Types of payment
5.1 The following payment methods are accepted on the Website: credit card (VISA and MasterCard circuits), PayPal service.
5.2 The charge will only be made after the verification of the data of the payment card used and after the issue of the debit authorisation by the card issuer.
5.3 Payment must be made at the same time as the order confirmation and no later than this term, which is to be considered peremptory and essential, unless otherwise agreed in writing with the Seller.
5.4 Failure to pay and/or partial payment within the terms described above will prevent the completing of the purchase on the Website.
5.5 The payment card indicated shall be debited at the time of transmission of the purchase order.
5.6 The confidential data of the payment card (card number, holder, expiry date, security code) are transmitted directly to the payment provider without passing through the servers used by the Seller. The Seller, therefore, never has access to and does not store the data of the card used by the Customer to pay for the items, not even if the Customer chooses to store the card data on the Site.
5.7 In case of payment through the PayPal service, the Customer is redirected to the Website www.paypal.it where the payment is made according to the procedure provided by PayPal and to the terms and conditions agreed between the user and PayPal. The data entered on the PayPal Site will be processed directly by PayPal and will not be transmitted and/or shared with the Seller. The Seller, therefore, is not able to know and does not store in any way the data of the payment card connected to the Customer's PayPal account, nor the data of any other payment instrument connected to that account. In the case of payment by PayPal, the total amount due will be debited by PayPal at the same time as the contract is concluded through the Website. In case of termination of the purchase contract and in any other case of refund, the amount to be refunded will be credited to the Customer's PayPal account. The timing of the crediting to the payment instrument connected to that account depends exclusively on PayPal and the banking system. Once the crediting order has been placed in favour of such account, the Seller shall not be held liable for any delays or omissions in crediting the refund amount, for which the Customer must contact PayPal directly and exclusively to contest such delays or omissions.
6. Items delivery

The reimbursement shall be made using the same payment instrument used for the initial transaction, unless the Consumer has agreed otherwise and on condition that the Consumer shall not incur any cost as a consequence of the reimbursement. The Seller shall not be obliged to reimburse the additional costs if the Consumer has used a carrier of his choice and, therefore, a type of delivery different from the least expensive one offered by the Seller. Unless the Seller has offered to collect the goods himself, the Seller may withhold the reimbursement until receipt of the goods.

Therefore, for example, if the Consumer has placed a total order of two hundred (200) Euro, which includes two items, the first of the value of fifty (50) Euro and the second of the value of one hundred and fifty (150) Euro, and returns the goods of the value of one hundred and fifty (150) Euro, the Consumer shall be reimbursed an amount equal to 75% of the delivery expenses incurred.

If, however, the defect is slight and it is not possible or excessively burdensome to carry out the remedies of repair or replacement, there is no right to termination of the contract. The Seller is obliged to provide the remedy (repair or replacement) requested by the Consumer, but the Seller may propose to the Consumer different solutions to resolve the problem. In such case, the Consumer is free to accept the proposal received or to request one of the remedies set forth above, as provided by the Consumer Code.
