III. Availability of the products
1. The products shall be available in the quantities specified on the site.
2. We undertake to keep the site updated and to indicate when the stock levels of our products are low. When it is not possible to do so, you declare that you understand and accept that we may highlight any lack of stock in the following ways:
a) before confirming the order, by making it impossible to add the products to the shopping cart, due to them being out of stock
b) after confirmation of the order or on receipt of payment for the product. In such cases, we shall contact you promptly to inform you of the extended timescale for the delivery of the ordered product or of the impossibility of supplying the product. In the event of the impossibility of supplying the product, we shall offer you alternative products of the same type and value that are in stock. Should you accept the replacement products, we shall send you a message showing the updated products. Should you refuse the replacement products, we shall reimburse you, on the timescales necessary for carrying out the operation, for any sums already paid for the products that were ordered but are not available.
3. The products supplied via the site are available for delivery in Italy by courier (subject to the exclusions and limitations of the courier).
IV. Order, order confirmation and shipment confirmation
1. The information on the site does not constitute an offering to the public. The contract between you and us enters into force only when, having received your order and sent you the order information, we inform you, directly or through third parties, of the acceptance of the contractual proposal.
2. On browsing the site, you may select the products that you intend to purchase and then proceed with placing the “order” after having put the products into the “cart”. The order only constitutes an invitation to enter into a contract.
3. On the shopping cart page, you can verify the order summary and decide to: a) proceed with the purchase; b) correct any errors; c) cancel the order. If you decide to proceed with the purchase, you shall be redirected to the payment method page. Payment may only be made by bank transfer, PayPal or payment by cash in the case of collection from the point of sale.
4. Once the payment has been made, we shall send you an email containing the “order confirmation”, showing all of the details of the order (products, quantities, unit price, methods and date chosen for the delivery of the products, shipping address, invoice details and other information you have entered). The order confirmation does not in itself constitute acceptance of your contractual proposal.
5. Having verified the payment and the availability of the requested products, we shall send you an email containing the “shipment confirmation” that shall constitute to all intents and purposes acceptance of your contractual proposal and shall determine the entering into the contract. The shipment confirmation shall be deemed to have been sent even if sent by the appointed courier. In the order confirmation, we (or the appointed courier) shall provide the intended delivery date, the number to contact to agree on specific methods or delivery days, and any other useful information.
6. You acquire ownership of the products on receipt of the shipment confirmation; the transfer of risk shall take place upon delivery of the products.
7. We reserve the right, until the shipment confirmation has been sent, to refuse for any reason the order received, without the requirement to provide any justification.
1. We undertake to deliver the products you have purchased within 30 days of sending the shipment confirmation or on another date indicated or agreed with you. Any delivery delays, if not attributable to us or if dependent on the specific nature of the delivery methods you have selected, or in the case of difficult-to-reach locations, shall not give rise to any entitlement to reimbursement.
2. Delivery is deemed to have been made when you, or someone you have delegated to do so, actually takes possession of the products, signing the delivery note where applicable. Equally, in the case of previous impossibility to deliver, attributable to the customer, delivery shall be deemed to have taken place at the moment of the sending of a communication containing an indication of the location where the purchased products have been deposited and the methods with which you can collect the products.
3. The products are delivered from Monday to Friday, between the hours of 9am and 6pm, by means of a courier. If agreed and feasible, the products may be collected from one of our retail outlets.
4. In the event that it is impossible to make the delivery, the products shall be deposited in a storage facility (possibly that of the courier) or in a location selected by us, and we shall then inform you about how to collect the products. When applicable, you are required to inform us promptly of the impossibility of receiving the products on the date indicated on the shipment confirmation or on another date indicated by us.
5. Should we be unable to contact you within the 30-day deadline, or should you refuse, explicitly or implicitly, to receive or collect the shipped products, we reserve the right not to proceed with the reimbursement of any sums paid, to pass all expenses incurred (shipment, courier fees, legal costs, etc.) on to you and to sell the products to third parties. This is without prejudice to those matters governed by the article on withdrawal.
VI. Price and payment
1. The unit prices of the products are indicated on the site, inclusive of Italian Value Added Tax (VAT), with the shipping costs indicated separately. All of the prices are subject to change.
2. If you require an invoice, we shall issue one by the last day of the month in which payment is made.
3. In the case of erroneous indication of the price of a product on the site, we shall inform you of the error, and you can then decide whether to proceed with the purchase at the new price, or not to proceed.
4. To proceed with the payment, you should follow the indications given on the “shopping cart” page of the site.
1. You are qualified as a consumer pursuant to Article 3 of Italian Legislative Decree No. 206/2005, and as such you may exercise the right to withdraw during the cooling-off period of 14 days from the date of delivery of the products, without having the provide any reasons for doing so and without being required to pay any penalty.

3. Should you withdraw, you acknowledge that: a) early withdrawal from the contract may be exercised, without having to provide any justification, by communicating your intention by registered post to our registered office or via our certified email address (PEC); b) for the purposes of entering into the contract, the countdown to the deadline for withdrawal shall start from the date of delivery of the products; c) the right to withdraw may not be exercised in relation to services already provided and for which the deadline of 14 days from delivery has already passed.

The reimbursement may be suspended until the products are returned to us. We shall not make any reimbursement if the products have been used, aside from simply being opened, or in the event that the products have not been returned in the same condition in which they were delivered to you, or that they are damaged. The products must be returned using the methods set out in Article VIII.
5. As the consumer, you can withdraw from the contract pursuant to Article 1373 of the Italian Civil Code if the contract has not yet come into force.
6.

We shall be entirely liable for the cost of returning the defective products only in cases in which you are not responsible for the damage.
6. Having verified the nature of the damage, we shall inform you whether or not we intend to proceed with the replacement of the products or the reimbursement of the sums paid, including the delivery charges.
