Please read these conditions carefully before using the website. By using this website or by placing an order through it, you agree to these terms and the privacy policy. Those not in agreement with all of the terms and the privacy policy are requested not to place orders via this site.

The information or personal data that you provide will be treated as laid out in the privacy policy. By using this website, you authorise us to use that information and personal data. You also declare that all information and/or personal data provided to us is accurate and true.

4. USE OF OUR WEBSITE

By using this website and/or by placing orders through this site, you agree to:

4.1 make use of this web site only for consultation or to place legally valid orders;

4.2 not make false or fraudulent orders. If we have plausible reasons for believing that an order of this nature has been placed, we are entitled to cancel your order and inform the relevant authorities;

4.3 be obligated to provide us with your email address, postal address and/or other contact details truthfully and correctly. Similarly, we will use this information to get in touch with you. If necessary see our privacy policy.

In the event that we don’t receive all the required information, we will be unable to carry out your order. By placing an order through this website, you declare that you are of age (18 years) and that you have the legal power to enter into binding contracts. 

5. AVAILABILITY OF SERVICE

The items offered through this website are available only in certain countries. With time, the service will be extended worldwide.

6. CONTRACT IMPLEMENTATION METHOD

This information and the details contained in this website do not constitute an offer to sell, but an invitation to bargain. There is no contract between you and us in connection with any products until your order has been explicitly accepted by us. If your offer is not accepted and a debit has already been charged to your account, the same amount will be returned in its entirety.

To place an order, you must follow the online purchase process and click "authorise payment". Subsequently, you will receive an e-mail indicating receipt of your order ("order confirmation"). This does not constitute confirmation of acceptance of your order but it constitutes an offer which you have made to us to purchase one or more products. All orders are subject to our approval; this approval is confirmed via a confirmation email indicating that the product is in the process of shipment ("shipping confirmation"). The contract for the purchase of a product between ourselves and you (the "agreement") will be implemented only when we send confirmation of shipping.

The contract only applies to those products listed on the shipping confirmation. We are not obliged to provide other products which may have been the subject of an order until their shipment has been confirmed in a separate shipping confirmation.

7. AVAILABILITY OF PRODUCTS

All orders for products are subject to availability. Thus, in the case of supply problems, or if the items are not in stock, we reserve the right to supply information relating to substitute products of equal or of a higher quality and value that you may decide to accept. If you do not wish to place an order of these substitute products, we will refund any amount you have already paid.

8. REFUSAL TO PROCESS AN ORDER

We reserve the right to remove any product from this website at any time and/or remove or modify any materials or content therein. Although we will make every effort to follow up on all orders, there may be extraordinary circumstances which oblige us to refuse to send some orders after having already sent an order confirmation, we reserve the right to do so at any time at our sole discretion.

We deny all liability to you or any third party for the removal of any product from this website regardless of whether the product has been sold or not, for the deletion or the modification of any materials or content on the website, or should we refuse to fulfil an order after sending the order confirmation.

9. DELIVERY

Without prejudice to what was laid out previously in article 7 and except where extraordinary circumstances occur, we will endeavour to ship your order for the product/s indicated on the shipping confirmation or, where no delivery date has been specified, within 10 days from the date of shipment confirmation.

However, there may be delays for one or more of the following reasons:

Product customisation;

Specialised articles;

Unforeseen circumstances; or

Delivery area.

No deliveries will be made on Saturdays and Sundays.

Under these conditions, we require every "delivery" to be signed for on receipt at the agreed delivery address.

10. INABILITY TO DELIVER

If after two attempts, delivery has not been possible, the package will remain in storage with the carrier who shall leave a note indicating where exactly the package is and how to collect it. Any fees charged for this service are completely at the courier’s discretion.

The order should be picked up from the allocated location within 15 days from the date on which, in accordance with the procedures laid down in these terms, you have been made aware of the availability of your order. Once that deadline is reached, if the parcel has not been picked up, the situation will be interpreted as a renunciation of the contract, which will be considered terminated. After termination of the contract, the package will be returned to us and we will refund the amount paid for the products, after the deduction of any transportation and storage costs, within 30 days of the date indicated. In accordance with this article, the agreement shall be considered resolved.

11. TRANSFER OF RISK AND OWNERSHIP OF PRODUCTS

The risks related to the products will be transferred to the purchaser from the time of their delivery.

You will acquire ownership of the products as soon as we receive the complete amount related to the products, including shipping charges, or upon delivery (in accordance with article 9).

12. PRICE AND PAYMENT

The price of the products will always be as indicated on our website, except where there is an obvious error. Although we strive to ensure that all prices appearing on the website are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover any errors in the price for the products that you have ordered, we will inform you as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct amount or to cancel it. If we cannot get in touch with you, the order will be cancelled and you will be refunded the full amount paid.

We are not obliged to provide the product/s at a lower price which has been incorrectly stated (even if we have already sent the shipment confirmation) if the pricing error was obvious and unmistakable, and could therefore be reasonably identified by yourself as a pricing error.

Website prices include VAT but exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount payable, as indicated in our guide to shipping costs.

Prices are subject to change at any time; however, and except where previously stated, possible changes will not affect orders for which we have already sent an order confirmation.

After your purchase selections have been made, all items that you want to buy will be added to cart and the next step will involve the completion of the order and payment. You should comply with the following instructions:

1. Click the "cart" button at the top of the page.

2. Click on the "GO TO CART" button.

3. Click on the "ORDER" button.

4. Fill in or confirm your contact information, your order information, the address where you want the order to be sent to and the invoicing address.

5. Choose your payment method between:

-Cash on delivery (only available in select areas) 
               -Bank transfer in advance         
               -Credit cards
               -PayPal Account
               -Store credit

Payment can be made with credit cards enabled by PayPal.

If your chosen method of payment is PayPal or credit card, the amount will be debited at the order confirmation stage.

By clicking "authorise payment" you confirm that the credit card used is your own.

Credit cards will be subject to inspections and authorisations, but where that credit institution does not authorise the payment, we will not be responsible for any delay or non-delivery and we cannot implement any contract with you.

13. VAT (VALUE ADDED TAX)

In accordance with the legislation in force, every purchase made through the website is subject to value added tax (VAT), except where the destination country is outside the European Union.

Therefore in conformity of the Italian Law Decree DL 331/93, comma 1, letter B all products sold through this site will be subject to Italian VAT.

24. RENUNCIATION
