Please read these terms and conditions (hereinafter the "Terms") before using the Application. By using the Application, the User agrees to the Terms and agrees to abide by them. Should that not be the case, the User may not use the Application.
The Owner may modify or simply update some or all of the Terms. Changes and updates are binding as soon as they are published on the Application. The User is therefore encouraged to review the Terms each time he or she accesses the Application and is advised to print of a copy for future reference.
It is understood that under no circumstances may the Owner be held liable in the event of loss, diffusion, theft or unauthorised use by third parties, for any reason whatsoever, of the User's login credentials.
2. Account closure and deletion
In the event of violation by the User of these Terms or of the provisions of applicable law, the Owner reserves the right to suspend or close the User's account at any time and without notice.
3. Purchases made on the Application
The purchase of one or more Products through the Application is permitted both to Users who are consumers and to those who are not consumers.
Pursuant to Art. 3, paragraph 1, letter (a) of the Legislative Decree No. 206/2005 ("Consumer Code") it should be noted that consumers are natural persons who, in relation to the purchase of Products, act for purposes unrelated to any entrepreneurial, commercial, professional or craft activity carried out.
Natural persons are only allowed to make purchases if they have reached the age of 18 years.
The Owner undertakes to describe and present the Products sold on the Application in the best possible way. However, there may be errors, inaccuracies or minor differences between the Application and the actual Product. Furthermore, any photographs of the Products present on the Application do not constitute a contractual element, as they are only representative.
The Products, prices, and conditions of sale of the Products, within the limits of their availability, do not constitute an offer to the public; therefore, they must always be considered indicative and subject to express confirmation by email or by displaying the order confirmation page on the part of the Owner, subject to verification of the availability of the selected Product.
The User expressly grants the Owner the right to accept even only partially the order placed (for example, if not all the Products ordered are available). In this case, the contract shall be deemed to have been concluded with respect to the Products actually sold. The Owner reserves the right to modify, at any time, the price of the Products.
It is understood that any changes will in no way affect contracts already concluded before the change. The selling prices of the Products are inclusive of VAT; any other tax payable by the User will be indicated before confirmation of the purchase.
Payment for the Products can be made using the methods indicated on the Application at the time of purchase.
4. Conclusion of the contract
The Contract entered into through the Application is considered concluded when the User receives, by email and/or by viewing a page of the Application, the formal confirmation of the order in which the Owner accepts the order sent by the User and informs him or her that he or she can proceed with the processing of the same.
The Contract shall be concluded at the place where the registered office of the Owner is situated. The Owner reserves the right to refuse an order:
1. When the Product is not available;
2. When the Owner does not receive the authorization to charge the cost of the Product to the User;
3. If a price which is clearly incorrect and recognisable as such is indicated at the time of purchase. In this case, the User will be contacted by Customer Services to be informed of the fact and will receive a refund for the transaction made.
Until the User has received the confirmation referred to in the previous point, he or she has the right to cancel the order by sending an email to the Owner’s email address, as is better specified in the clause on the "Right of Withdrawal".
If requested by the User, the commercial invoice will be sent by the Owner. The User who wishes to receive an invoice will be asked for the billing data. For the issuing of the invoice, the information provided by the User and which he declares and guarantees to be true shall be deemed authentic, releasing the Owner from any further indemnity in this regard.
6. Right of withdrawal of digital Products and/or services
If for any reason the User is not satisfied with his or her purchase of digital Products (not provided on a physical medium) or services, he or she may withdraw from the contract within 14 days from the day of the conclusion of the contract by sending a written communication to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling Customer Service on 0923 873813, and including the details necessary for identifying the purchase.
The User acknowledges and agrees to lose the right of withdrawal at the time of downloading and/or after the start of the execution of the contract, if the execution began with the express agreement of the User and with the acceptance of the loss of the right of withdrawal.
If the User decides to withdraw from the contract within the aforementioned period, the Owner shall reimburse all payments received from the User without undue delay and, in any case, no later than 14 days from the day on which the User notified the Owner that he or she wishes to withdraw from the contract.
The Owner will reimburse the price of the Product via the same payment method originally used by the User.

In no case may the limit of liability of the Owner be higher than twice the cost paid by the User for the service used.
11. Links to third party websites
The Application may contain links to third-party websites. The Owner does not exercise any control over them and, therefore, is not in any way responsible for the contents of these sites.
Some of these links may refer the User to third party sites that provide services through the Application. In these cases, the general conditions for the use of the site and for the use of the service offered by third parties will apply to the individual services, for which the Owner does not assume any responsibility.
12. Force majeure
The Owner shall not be held liable for any failure or delay in the fulfilment of its obligations herein that is due to circumstances beyond the Owner's reasonable and foreseeable control. The fulfilment of the obligations by the Owner under these Terms shall be deemed to be suspended for the period in which the Force Majeure Events occur. The Owner shall perform any act in its power to find solutions that allow the proper fulfilment of its obligations despite the persistence of the Force Majeure Events.
No waiver by either party of any article of these Terms will be effective unless it is expressly stated to be a waiver and is communicated in writing.
14. Invalidity of individual clauses
If any provision of these Terms is found to be illegal or invalid, it shall not be deemed to form part of the General Terms and Conditions and this shall not affect the remaining provisions which shall continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law.
