3. Procedure for acquiring the Goods
Users who wish to purchase the Goods listed on the Site must first register on the Site by completing the fields shown in the form called “Register” with true information. Said activity, though it is required for any later operations including any potential purchase, does not in itself imply the existence of a contractual link, and it may be carried out solely for the purpose of receiving updates and/or information, following consent from the Client, regarding the actions carried out by the Company through the Site. In order to successfully complete the registration process, it is necessary to provide an active email address and provide consent regarding the treatment of personal data according to Legislative Decree 196/2003, which is the “Code regarding the treatment of personal data”. By registering their own name on the Site, the Client agrees to be considered an adult according to Italian law, which sets the age of majority at eighteen. If the user is not eighteen or older they may not register on the Site. Any abuse of the registration process will be prosecuted according to current legislation. Once the registration process has been successfully completed, the user will receive an email from the Company, with a link which the user must click on to confirm their registration (this step is necessary to validate the email address provided by the user). After this procedure, users will be able to enjoy their own personal account on the Site, where they will be able to review all of their purchases and their status at any time.

WARNING! TERRITORIAL LIMITATIONS:
Anyone in the world can make acquisitions on the Site, but the Company limits the delivery of Goods to the countries indicated below. If the Client would like the delivery to be made to a place not on this list, they must first send an email to email@example.com to obtain a specific delivery quote (see also point 7 of these GCS). Countries always delivered to: ITALY, AUSTRIA, BELGIUM, DENMARK, FINLAND, FRANCE (mainland only), CORSICA, GERMANY, UNITED KINGDOM, IRELAND, SWITZERLAND, LIECHTENSTEIN, LUXEMBOURG, NORWAY, THE NETHERLANDS, SWEDEN , SPAIN (excluded CEUTA and MELILLA), THE BALEARIC ISLANDS, THE CANARY ISLANDS, CYPRUS, GREECE, MALTA, PORTUGAL (mainland only), MONTENEGRO, BULGARIA, ESTONIA, LATVIA, LITHUANIA, POLAND, ROMANIA, SLOVENIA, HUNGARY.
In the event that the Client wishes to proceed with the acquisition of a Good, according to the conditions of sale, they must express their willingness to accept the proposal by filling in and sending the Order. Depending on the chosen method of payment, sending the Order implies that the Client will either carry out a bank transfer (available only to Clients living in Europe) or make a payment through PayPal or credit card. The Client must carefully complete the fields of the “Purchase Order” form, indicating, if different, the billing details and the delivery address for the product and the subsequent documentation. It is mandatory to complete these fields in order to provide the best possible service to the Client in a timely manner. Since the Client will be required to specify whether they are a business or self-employed professional (indicating their corresponding VAT number), or a private individual who qualifies as a consumer (indicating only their Tax Code), we should clarify the definition of “consumer”, as indicated in art 3, paragraph 1, letter a) of the Consumer Code, whereby a consumer is understood to be “any natural person acting without entrepreneurial, commercial, or professional motivation”. It is possible to acquire several Goods in a single Order, in which case they will all be delivered together. The Client can then specify whether they want to insure the delivery of the purchased Goods or not, also stating whether they agree to pay the additional indicated fee for said service. In the event that uninsured goods are lost or damaged during delivery, no compensation or reimbursement will be due other than what is prescribed by the Law, which is equal to 1 Euro per kg of the gross weight of the shipment (transported by road). At this point, the Client may indicate the payment method that they wish to use from those accepted by the Company: bank transfer (only for Clients in Europe, SEPA) or through PayPal (available to everyone) or credit card (available to everyone). At this stage of the Order completion, the Site’s software will automatically display a list indicating the following: the Good selected, its code and brief description and the complete cost of the Order “Grand Total”, including shipping charges, representing the exact amount that the Client will have to pay to obtain the requested service. If after reading these GCS, the Privacy and Cookies Notice, and having checked the billing details they entered, the delivery address, as well as the codes for the desired goods, the full cost, including delivery charges (plus the cost of insurance, if selected), and having verified the selected payment method, therefore being aware of the full cost of the operation, the Client decides to proceed with the acquisition, they must confirm the Order by clicking on “Submit Order”.
As said above, the acquisition contract will be understood to be completed once the Order is sent to the Company and they become aware of it, at which point they will send the Order Confirmation to the Client at the address provided. Said Order Confirmation will contain a summary of the purchased Goods with their corresponding codes, their prices (including delivery charges); the delivery address provided, these GCS and the number of the Order (hereinafter called the “Order Number”). The Client is responsible for carefully checking that all the information contained in the Order Confirmation is correct, and, in the event that any corrections need to be made, they should contact the Company via email to the address firstname.lastname@example.org within 24 hours of receiving the Order confirmation, detailing the changes that need to be made. The Order Number, automatically generated by the system, must always be written down by Client and stored in a secure place, as it will always be required in any future communication between the Client and the Company regarding the Order in question. Due to the possibility of multiple Orders being placed simultaneously for the same Goods resulting from the inherent nature of the online environment in which the Company interacts with its users, and even though the Company makes every effort to always be fully stocked with the products that they offer for sale, in the event that any given Good ordered by Client turns out not be available after they have placed an Order, the Company undertakes to inform the Client of the situation as soon as possible (within 2 to 3 days), indicating the new delivery time for the items purchased, and asking the Client whether they wish to proceed with the original Order or not. The Client, being aware of this possibility, waives any right to obtain damages or compensation, however they are defined, and to bring forward a claim or dispute regarding any contractual responsibility or tort, for direct or indirect damages to persons or things resulting from the temporary unavailability of the selected Goods and the resulting failure to fulfil the Order. In the event that the Client does not confirm the Order after being given the new delivery time, the Company agrees to fully refund any payment received through the Order related to the unavailable Goods, using the same payment method selected by the Client. A copy of the contract documentation, Client Order, Order Confirmation issued by the Company, applicable GCS, payment/credit invoice, any documentation regarding the shipment/delivery of the Goods, any documentation regarding the right to cancel or to a change of mind, as well as any written communication with the Client, will all be archived by the Company in a secure and protected way, using their own IT management system. The Client may, at any time, request a copy of this information by contacting the following email address: email@example.com.
All of the prices indicated the Site regarding any Good on sale are expressed in Euro (€) and inclusive of Italian VAT (22%). They do not include shipping costs, which will be displayed and included in the total amount of the Order, since these costs vary according to the weight and/or volume of the shipment, as well as the end delivery destination. The total amount that the Client agrees to pay the Company is the amount which is displayed when they click on “Submit Order” and in the issued Order Confirmation sent to the User. The Company reserves the right to modify their prices at any time and without any prior notice. The prices paid by the Client will be those that are in force at the time that the Order is made. Any cost, fee, charge, and/or tax, of any kind, wherever they may be due, in relation to customs regulations and/or procedures will be covered exclusively by the Client.

In the event that the billing address and shipping address are different, a copy of the invoice will be scanned and also sent to the email address indicated by the Client in the Order; the original copy will always accompany the shipment. The information provided by the Client in the Order will be used to create the invoice; it is therefore important for the Client to carefully check that the information they have provided to the Company is correct at all times. The Company will not be able to receive and/or acquire financial information about the Client, and therefore, nor will they be able to archive or store this kind of information in any way. The only piece of financial information of the Client that the Company may gain knowledge of is the Client’s IBAN number, in the case of users who are part of the SEPA area and have opted to pay for the Goods by means of a bank transfer, and subsequently exercised their right to cancel the contract, insofar as this information is necessary to return the payment amount; however this information will not be archived, it will be deleted as soon as the procedure for which it was required has been completed.

The conformity must relate to the description of the Good as well as the offer made by the Company. Unless otherwise stated by the Company before providing it, the Good must have the level of quality and usability that the Client Con. can reasonably expect, taking into account the nature of the Good. Among other things, these rules require the Client Con., under penalty of forfeiture, to present a complaint to the Company regarding any defects of the Good, within two (2) months from them being discovered. Following said complaint, the Client Con. will have the right to request that the Good is repaired or replaced, with no detriment to any of their other legal rights. By virtue of the legal guarantee, the Company is responsible for any non-conformities which manifest within two (2) years from the date that the Good is delivered; after this time the Company cannot be held responsible for any lack of conformity identified by the Client Con. The costs of sending the Good to the Company, whether to be repaired or replaced, will be covered by the Client Con. and subsequently reimbursed by the Company. In the event that, upon receiving the Good, the Company does not recognise the right of the Client Con. to the guarantee, in the form of a repair or replacement, they will send them en email outlining their reasons and requesting instructions for returning the Good. Should the Company replace or repair the Good, the terms of the guarantee for the replaced or repaired Good are the same as for the original product. In the event that the Company has recognised the right of the Client Con. to be covered by the guarantee, the delivery costs involved in transporting the Good for repair or replacement will be covered by the Company. In the event that it is not possible for the Company to replace the Good, the Client may agree to receive another Good with similar characteristics and value; alternatively, the full amount paid by the Client Con. will be reimbursed by the Company.
