Acceptance of orders on the Site implies strict compliance with the procedures described below and displayed by successive screens indicating the steps that the customer must take to confirm his order.
5.1 First step: choice of items by the customer
On the Site, the customer selects, enters and confirms the code and quantity of the items he wishes to order (the availability of which must be confirmed by the Company); these items will then be added to the “Shopping Cart”.
5.2 Second step: verification of selected items
The customer can modify online his “Shopping Cart” made up of the selected articles, delete an article initially selected, modify the quantities ordered or add an article by clicking on the corresponding buttons inside the “Shopping Cart”. Within the “Shopping Cart” the prices of the articles – as defined in article 8 below – will be displayed automatically.
5.3 Third step: confirmation of the selected items and order confirmation
Once the items have been selected and the “Shopping Cart” confirmed, the customer confirms the order:
5.3.1 if he has an account on the Site, by entering his e-mail address (username) and password;
5.3.2 if he does not have an account on the Site, by entering his name, email address and the usual residential address to which the order will be invoiced and his telephone number.
The customer must also confirm:
5.3.3 the delivery address of the order – of a third-party beneficiary chosen by the customer or, otherwise, at the address of the Company at which the latter exercises his professional activity;
5.3.4 and, finally, the method of payment chosen.
Once all information has been entered and confirmed, the price of the items – as defined in article 9 below – will be displayed automatically together with any shipping costs.
After having communicated the credit card number, in compliance with the conditions of article 9 below, the customer clicks on the button to confirm the payment for debiting his account.
The authorization to debit the account provided by the customer’s bank is then displayed. The client is advised to save and/or print out this debit authorization. With the debit authorization of the customer’s account by his bank, the “Shopping Cart” is transmitted directly to the order preparation department of the Company; the customer will then be notified of his order number.
The order is binding on the customer at the time of receipt by the Company of the “Shopping Cart” duly completed and validated by displaying the order registration page.
5.4 Fourth step: receipt of return of the order by the Company
The Company acknowledges receipt of the order by means of an email sent to the email address provided by the customer. You formally agree to our use of email to confirm the content of your order.
This confirmation e-mail contains all the information communicated by the customer with an indication of any difficulties or reservations relating to the order (availability of the items ordered, delivery times or payment method chosen). It also indicates the order number assigned to the customer by the Company.
5.5 Fifth step: shipment of items
When the articles ordered are shipped to the address chosen by the customer for delivery, the Company sends an email to the customer informing him of the shipment and the charge of the amount, as provided in Article 9 below.

Article 11 – Intellectual property rights
The customer is granted a license to use the Site, which remains the exclusive property of the Company, which has created and published online, in particular, the web pages, images, source scripts and databases that comprise it.

The Company’s articles, the Company’s trademarks, as well as all images of figurative or non-figurative trademarks and, more generally, all other trademarks, illustrations, images, drawings, models and logos reproduced on the Company’s articles sold at a distance, on their accessories or on their packaging, whether registered or not, are and remain the exclusive property of the Company.

Article 12 – Right of withdrawal and return of articles
In accordance with the provisions of Articles 52 and following of the Italian Consumer Code (Legislative Decree no. 206 of 2005), the customer enjoys the right of withdrawal that can be exercised
– on the Site in the section dedicated to the return request: the Company will communicate by e-mail the receipt of the withdrawal request by the customer;
without having to justify the reasons and within a period of thirty (30) days from receipt of the items.
The customer will then have to return the items delivered:
– following the various steps of the procedure indicated by the Company, described on the Site and within which all costs of returning the items are borne by the Company;
– or, by the means of his choice and at his own expense. In this case it is recommended to keep the proof of return, which presupposes that the items are returned by the customer by registered mail, or by any other means with a certain date.
In any case, the return of the items delivered must be made by the customer:
– within a period of fifteen (15) days from the exercise of his right;
– in their original packaging, in perfect condition, such as to allow the Company to put them back on sale, unused and accompanied by all accessories and documents provided (instructions, warranty, certificate of authenticity, etc..) as well as a copy of the invoice attached to the items delivered.
The refund of the invoiced price of the returned items will take place, by crediting the customer’s account, within fourteen (14) days of receipt, by the Company, of said items. The return of any customized, retouched, ruined, used, incomplete or dirty product will forfeit the right to a refund.
Article 13 – Conformity – Warranty
The customer must ensure that the items delivered correspond to his order. In the event that the items delivered do not comply with his order, it is recommended to the customer:
– to inform the Company as soon as possible by sending an e-mail to: email@example.com justifying the non-conformity of the item to the order;
– to return the items in question in their original packaging, in perfect condition, such as to allow the Company to put them back on sale, unused and accompanied by all accessories and documents provided (instructions, warranty, certificate of authenticity, etc..) as well as a copy of the invoice attached to the items delivered;
– following, in order to facilitate its processing by the Company, the various stages of the procedure proposed by the latter, described on the Site and in which all costs of returning the items are borne by the Company.
If the customer returns the item(s) by the means of his or her own choice and at his or her own expense, it is recommended that he or she retain proof of return of the item(s) by registered mail, or by any other means with a certain date, and if the non-conformity of the item(s) ascertained by the customer is recognized, the return costs will be borne by the Company. They will be reimbursed by crediting the customer’s account after the latter has sent supporting documents for said expenses.
If the returned item cannot be replaced and you do not wish to have a credit with us, we will refund the invoiced price of the returned non-conforming item(s) to your account within fourteen (14) days of our receipt of the returned item(s).
Without prejudice to any specific warranty conditions that may be provided to the customer with the delivered item, the Company’s items are subject to the following legal warranties of conformity and relating to defects in the item sold:
Article 14 – Force Majeure
The performance by the Company of all or part of its obligations will be suspended if a fortuitous event or force majeure occurs, which prevents or delays its performance. The Company will inform the customer of such fortuitous events or force majeure within seven (7) days of their occurrence.
If such suspension of the execution of the Company’s obligations lasts for more than fifteen (15) days, the customer will have the option of withdrawing from the order in progress; the Company will then reimburse the customer as soon as possible by crediting the customer’s account.
Article 15 – Exclusion of Waiver
The fact that the Company refrains from requiring at any given time the performance of any of the stipulations of these General Conditions of Sale cannot be interpreted as a waiver of the right to invoke said non-performance in whole or in part at a later date.
Article 16 – Validity of the General Conditions of Sale
Should any of these general conditions of sale be declared null and void, in whole or in part, the other stipulations and the other rights and obligations arising from these general conditions of sale shall remain unaffected and applicable.

These general conditions of sale are governed by Italian law, unless mandatory rules to the contrary are derived from the EC Regulation No. 593/2008 of 17 June 2008 on the law applicable to contractual obligations (Rome I). In the event of difficulties arising during the order or delivery of items, the customer will have the opportunity, before any legal recourse, to attempt an amicable solution, in particular with the support of a consumer association or any other consultant chosen by the company.
