Payment cards

PayPal

Wire transfer.

8.2 The Seller accepts the following credit cards:

VISA

MasterCard (Cirrus Maestro)

American Express

CartaSì

The credit cards accepted by the Seller are specified in the footer.

The charge will only be made after (i) your payment card details used for payment have been verified and (ii) the issuer of the payment card used by you has issued the debit authorization.

Pursuant to Directive 2015/2366/ (EU) on payment services in the internal market (PSD2), the user is informed that he/she may be required to complete the purchase process by meeting the authentication criteria required by the payment institution in charge of handling the online payment transaction. The authentication criteria refer to the identity of the user (to meet this criterion the user must be registered on the Website during the purchase transaction) and the contextual knowledge of the authentication code transmitted by the payment institution (Strong Customer Authentication). Failure to complete this procedure may make it impossible to finalize the purchase on the Website.

The confidential data of the payment card (card number, holder, expiry date, security code) are encrypted and transmitted directly to the relevant payment institution without passing through the servers used by the Seller. The Seller therefore never has access to and does not store the data of your payment card used to pay for the Products.

The charge of the Total Sum Due will only be made at the time of transmission of the order.

8.3 As for PayPal payments, the user will be redirected to the website www.paypal.com, where they shall make the payment on the basis of the prescribed procedure regulated by PayPal and the terms and conditions of the agreement agreed between the user and PayPal. The data inserted on the PayPal website will be processed directly by PayPal and will not be sent to or shared with the Seller. The Seller is thus unable to know, or memorise in any way, the credit card details linked to the user’s PayPal account, or the details of any other form of payment linked to said account.

If payment is made through PayPal, the Total Sum Due will be charged by PayPal to the user’s account at the same time as the conclusion of the online agreement. If the agreement is terminated, or in any other case of refund, for any reason, the amount of the refund due to the user shall be credited to the user’s PayPal account. The term for crediting the sum on the payment tool linked to this account depends exclusively on PayPal and the bank system. Once the credit order has been arranged in favour of the said account, the Seller shall not be deemed liable for any delays or omissions in the crediting of the refund to the User. Any type of refund to be made pursuant to these General Terms and Conditions of Sale will be made to the user’s PayPal account.

8.4 If you choose to pay by bank transfer, after placing your order you can make the payment at the bank details indicated on the Website.

Unless otherwise agreed, the Services will be provided only after receipt by bank transfer of the Total Amount Due.

The user is required to specify:

the reference number of the purchase order

the purchase order date

the name and surname of the purchaser, if different from that of the holder of the current account used for the payment.

Once the order has been placed, you must pay within 5 working days. Failure to comply will cause the automatic termination of the agreement in the following 3 working days.

Article 9. Right of Withdrawal

9.1 If you are a consumer, you have the right to withdraw from the contract for the purchase of the Service without giving any reason and without incurring any costs other than those provided for in this article within fourteen calendar days (Withdrawal Period). The Withdrawal Period expires after 14 days from the conclusion of the purchase order of the Service.

To exercise your right of withdrawal, you must inform the Seller, before the expiration of the Withdrawal Period, of your decision to withdraw.

You have exercised your right of withdrawal within the Withdrawal Period if notice of the exercise of your right of withdrawal is sent by you before the expiration of the Withdrawal Period. This notice must be sent using one or more of the contacts available on the Web site. Please note that since the burden of proof for exercising the right of withdrawal before the expiration of the Withdrawal Period is on you, it is in your best interest to use a durable medium when notifying the Seller of your withdrawal.

If you withdraw from the contract, the Seller will proceed to refund the Total Amount Due without undue delay and in any event no later than 14 calendar days from the day on which the Seller was informed of your decision to withdraw from the contract. The refund will be made using the same payment instrument used for the initial transaction.

In the event that the withdrawal is not exercised in accordance with the provisions of applicable law, it will not result in the termination of the contract and, consequently, will not entitle you to any refund. The request to withdraw from the contract will therefore be rejected

Article 10. Legal Guarantee of Conformity

All the Products sold on the Website are covered by the legal guarantee of conformity provided by articles 128-135 by Legislative Decree N. 128-135 of Consumer Code (Legal Guarantee).

To whome it applies

The Legal Warranty is reserved for consumers. It therefore applies solely to users who have made the purchase on the Website for purposes other than entrepreneurial, commercial, craft or professional activities.

When it applies

The Seller is liable vis-à-vis the consumer for any non-conformity existing at the time of delivery of the product and becoming visible within two years of said delivery. The Seller must be informed of the non-conformity, under penalty of forfeiture of the guarantee, within two months from the date on which it was discovered.

Unless proven otherwise, the non-conformity materialising within six months from the delivery date of the product are assumed as existing since the latter, unless the assumption is incompatible with the nature of the product or with the nature of the non-conformity. Starting from the seventh month following the delivery of the product, the burden of proof to prove that the non-conformity already existed at the time of delivery of the product shall lie with the consumer.

In order to take advantage of the Legal Guarantee, you must thus provide proof of the date of the purchase and delivery of the good. It is therefore advisable, for the purpose of proving the purchase, that you keep the invoice sent by the Seller, as well as the transport document or any other document certifying the date of the purchase (such as the credit card statement or the bank statement) and the delivery date.

In case of termination of the contract, the Seller will return to the consumer the total amount paid, consisting of the purchase price of the Product, shipping costs and any other additional cost. In case of price reduction, the Seller will refund the amount of the reduction, previously agreed with the consumer. The amount of the refund or reduction will be credited to the means or payment solution used by the consumer for the purchase.

The Seller shall not be held liable in the event of damage of any kind resulting from the improper use of the Product or in the event of damage resulting from unforeseeable circumstances or force majeure.

If you made the purchase as a “professional” in accordance with the provisions of the Consumer Code, the previous paragraphs of this article do not apply. The legal guarantee provided for by art. 1490 of the Italian Civil Code.

Article 11. Applicable Law and Jurisdiction; out-of-court settlement of disputes – Alternative Dispute Resolution/Online Dispute Resolution

To the users regularly non residents in Italy will be applied possibly more favorable and mandatory provisions provided by the law of the country in which they are habitually resident, and in particularly related to the term for the exercise of the right of withdrawal, to the term to return the Products, in case the User would like to exercise this right, to the methods and the formalities of the communication of this right and to the legal conformity guarantee.

11.2 If you are a “consumer”, for any dispute concerning the application, execution and interpretation of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale, the Court is where you have your residence or you have elected your domicile.

11.3 According to Article 141-sexies, comma 3 Legislative Decree of 6 September 2005 N. 206 (Consumer Code), the Seller informs the user as an end consumer whom Article 3, comma 1, lett. a) of the Consumer Code, that, in case he/she has submitted a complaint directly to the Seller, as a result of which it was not possible to resolve the controversy that arose, the Seller will provide the informations concerning the organization of Alternative Dispute Resolution for the out-of-court resolution of disputes relating to obligations arising from a contract concluded in accordance with these General Sale Conditions (ADR organizations, as indicated in Article 141-bis and followings of the Consumer Code), also specifying if it wants to use or not these organizations in order to solve the dispute.

11.5 Whatever it is the outcome of the out-of-court settlement procedure of disputes relating to consumption relationships through recourse to the procedures set out in Part V, Title II-bis of the Consumer Code, in any case the consumer has always the right to bring legal action before the competent Court.
