4. LEGAL BASIS AND MANDATORY OR OPTIONAL NATURE OF PROCESSING
The legal basis for processing personal

a party or for the execution
of pre-contractual measures taken at the request of the same), inasmuch as processing
is necessary for
the provision of services. The provision of personal data for these purposes is optional, but
to provide it would make it impossible to activate the services requested.
The purpose referred to in section 3.3 represents a legitimate processing of personal data pursuant to art. 6 ( 1 )(c) of the Regulation ([...] processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the Data Controller is subject). In fact, once the personal data has been conferred, the processing must comply with the legal obligations to which the Data Controller is subject.

or, alternatively, the "Seller"), are included
in the present contract of sale ("Contract").
Every user visiting the Site ("User") is invited to view the Contract before completing an order for purchase of Products on the Site ("Order"). The purchase of Products on this Site implies the acceptance of these Terms and Conditions of Sale.
Any modification or amendment to these Terms and Conditions of Sale will immediately become effective after being published on this Site and will regulate all the subsequent sales of Products.
The purchase of Products on this Site is allowed only
to customers ("Customers")
- meaning natural
persons, eligible to execute and perform binding
agreements according to the applicable law or under
guardian) consent, when needed, outside of any business or professional
When submitting an Order, Customers must provide all the personal information required by this Site, including but not limited to their own first name, surname, birth date, email address, billing and delivery address. All such information must be true, accurate and up to date.
Users cannot make any purchase under someone else’s identity unless strictly authorized to do so by the identity holder.
Products sold on this Site are not meant for resale.
2. Acceptance of an Order – Contract of sale
Following the electronic
submission of an Order, the Customer will receive a specific email confirming receipt of the Order.
Such communication serves to notify the Customers that the Order has been received, and to provide them with the relevant unique identifying number for the Order. That does not in any way represent acceptance of the Order on the part of the Seller. If any piece of information in the confirmation email appears incorrect, the Customer must promptly inform the Seller’s customer service ("Customer Service") via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org or via the link included in the confirmation email.
The acceptance of the Order on the part of the Seller will take place only when the latter sends the purchase confirmation to the Customer by email ("Purchase confirmation"), usually at the same time as the despatch of the Products. The relevant Contract should be considered finalised at the time of receipt of the Purchase confirmation on the part of the Customer.
Before that time, the Seller reserves the right to refuse acceptance of an Order at its discretion. In particular, the Seller shall not be responsible, in any way, in the event that a Product that has been ordered is removed from the Site following the submission of the relevant Order. It may in fact occur that the Site erroneously displays Products that are not available at that time.
In the case of partial unavailability of the Order, Customer Service will contact the Customer in order to confirm that the Customer wishes to (a) receive a partial Order, (b) the complete Order over numerous deliveries, or (c) to cancel the Order.
In the case of total unavailability of the Order, however, the Customer Service will contact the Customer in order to inform the Customer that the Order will not be processed, and will cancel the relevant Order. In such case, no charge will be imposed in relation to the Customer.
Orders may be made using major credit cards, debit cards
or other methods of payment available on the Site (collectively, the "Payment
The Seller will proceed to charge the price of the purchase, as defined below ("Price"), at the same time as the acceptance of the Order. However, prior to the acceptance of the Order, security checks may be carried out regarding the Payment method chosen by the Customer for the Order, or a pre-authorisation or a pre-charge for the sake of caution.
The Seller uses a primary gateway for the authorisation of payments for Orders ("Payment gateway"); as a result, the Seller will not directly manage any financial information relating to the Payment method used by the Customer, nor will the Site process any financial information provided for the completion of the Order.
The Payment Gateway protects the details of the credit or debit card used, encrypting sensitive information in order to ensure that they are transmitted securely. The Site uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology in order to guarantee a higher level of security for every Order.
In the unlikely event of error, negligence or any wrongdoing in relation to the management of the transaction linked to an Order by the Payment Gateway and/or the intermediary systems for payment, neither the Seller nor the Site will be responsible for such error, negligence or wrongdoing.
The Seller reserves the right to cancel a transaction and the relevant Order in the event that it appears that fraudulent use is being made of the Payment method adopted for the Order. Moreover, the Seller and the Site will not be responsible in the event that illegal use is made of a Payment method by third parties which is not connected to any error or negligence by the Site or the Seller.
4. Shipping and deliveries
The Seller despatches and delivers the Orders using major couriers.
The Seller commits itself to deliver the Orders to Customers in a precise and timely manner, in conformity with the terms of delivery shown on the Site at checkout and, in every case, within 30 (thirty) days from the date of notification of the Purchase confirmation to the Customer.
The Purchase Confirmation is usually sent to the Customer at the time the Products are despatched to the courier for delivery.
In certain circumstances, such as, for example, during sales periods or the closure of the business, delivery times may vary. The Seller shall not be held responsible for delays in delivery that are not connected to its fault or negligence. To this extent, the Seller shall be exempt from responsibility for delays due to force majeure, strikes, natural disasters, occurrences related to customs procedures, and any other occurrence relating to the provision of delivery services or any other circumstance outside its control.
Customers are encouraged to do everything in their power to facilitate the delivery of the Order, making themselves available for receipt or delegating to a third party.
The courier will make a first attempt at delivery of the Order at the address indicated by the Customer. Where the outcome of the delivery is negative, the courier will inform the Customer of the attempt at delivery and will try to arrange a subsequent delivery of the Order with the Customer.
In the event that the courier is definitively unable to deliver the Order, Customer Service will contact the Customer in order to verify his or her interest in a new despatch.
At the time of delivery, the Customer must verify the exactness of the number of the parcels and the integrity of the external packaging. In the event that the Customer finds anomalies with the delivery, for example in relation to the number of parcels or damage to the external packaging, the Customer must conditionally sign the delivery document and contact the Customer Service. In the event that the Customer fails to do so, the Customer will not be able to bring a claim in relation to the delivery, save for as provided under article 8 below in relation to hidden faults and in respect of any applicable consumer protection law.

- • Conform to the description provided on the Site and possess the qualities of the Products that the Seller has presented to the Customer as a sample or model;
- • Are appropriate for the purpose that goods of the same kind are normally used for;
- • Possess the usual qualities and characteristics of goods of the same kind, and that the Customer can reasonably expect, taking into account the nature of the good.

After receiving notice from the Customer, the Seller will contact the Customer to arrange the collection of the Products directly with the Customer.
