The customer will be able to confirm its willingness to purchase by either filling out the form available on the site, or by filling out the pre-printed form that will be supplied by the Seller upon simple request, even by telephone. The customer's order shall be binding only after acceptance either by Email or by fax or by mail sent by the Seller.

3. Nature of the relationship and non-enforcement cases of consumers protection laws

In compliance with national and EU laws currently in force, consumer protection laws govern the economic relationship between the Seller and the Customer only if the customer is an individual and purchases for personal purposes unrelated to his work. Therefore, the relationship between the Seller and the Customer who buys for purposes related to his work, by providing his VAT, involves no application of national and European Community regulations to protect consumers.

4. Prices
Save for different written indication, all quoted prices are considered "VAT not included" and expressed in Euro. The validity of prices is always and only that indicated at the time of the order confirmation sent by the Seller to the Customer. Therefore, photographs and prices on the web pages of the website or catalogues are not binding for contractual purposes. In fact, the prices of products may change without prior notice.

5. Payment
As a rule, the payment is only made in cash to the courier upon delivery of the goods at the address provided by the customer on placing the order. For payments exceeding 500.00 the Seller reserves the right to require payment in advance by bank transfer either of all or part of the price of the supply. On paying by bank transfer, goods will be shipped only after receiving the payment at the Bank indicated by the Seller. On paying only part of the price by bank transfer, the balance must be settled in cash "on delivery". The cost of stock in the Courier warehouses resulting from Customer's failure to collect the goods will be fully charged to the Customer.

6. Ownership of the goods

The products ownership is transferred to the buyer only upon balancing the related invoices, intending the sold goods under suspended condition of private ownership until full payment.

7. Purchase orders
The system provides for the Seller's order confirmation of the actual availability of reserved items, for which orders or reservations for not available material will not be accepted and managed. In case of unavailability, completely or in part, after the order due to causes beyond the Seller's control, he shall notify in writing (including by Email) within 30 days from date of order, the information to execute the order itself. Every order is marked by a code (order number) and contains the starting date, the estimation of the delivery date, details of purchased items, shipping charges and the individual prices in Euro including VAT, the costs indicated as taxable (VAT excluded) and total (VAT excluded) in Euro. Orders for either replacements or possible additions, unless the explicit Seller's acceptance, will be treated as new orders. The order acceptance by the Seller's information system does not bind the Seller until he has not issued a specific written confirmation, also by Email address, to the address provided by the Customer. The supply includes only the products in the quantities specified in the letters and/or fax of the order confirmation sent by the Seller or in any of the order changes. The order confirmation text shall prevail in any case texts dissimilar from offer and order, unless the Buyer has not immediately contested possible differences on receiving the goods. Any condition expressed by the Seller's officials or intermediaries will be worthless if not reproduced in the text of the confirmation letter and/or fax. The Customer accepts that communications sent by the Seller and inherent to the order can also be sent by Email (electronic format).

8. Delivery options
Except in the case of the Customer's direct withdraw of goods by either the Seller's headquarter or warehouse by showing the confirmation order, the Seller shall make shipments to the customer by trusted selected and the goods travel with transportation costs and risks fully charged on the Customer. These costs, along with other expenses related to transport and/or shipment of products, are accounted for and detailed in both the order confirmation and invoice. Upon receiving the goods at the specified address the Customer will have to verify the packages integrity and the correspondence with the quantity and quality as specified in the associated document. In case of discrepancies and/or discrepancies it will be up to the Customer to exactly point out these discrepancies on the transport document (either delivery note or waybill). The non-proceeding will produce the loss of faculty to enforce the rights in this regard.

9. Indicative terms of delivery
The Seller indicates to the Customer a reasonable delivery timeframe of 8 working days with the exception of the Islands and the mountain villages with difficult access, for which the delivery time is approximately 8 working days. The times now indicated start from the order confirmation date sent by the Customer to the Seller, plus a working day. The delivery conditions described above are valid for the products available at the Seller's warehouse. In the case not available products, will prevail the delivery time indicated in the budget sent to the Customer. In any case, the delivery times are indicative and are not absolutely binding for the Seller, since there is no guarantee for them, save for mandatory commitments established on ordering, for which are anyway excluded the fortuitous events and other required by law. Therefore, in no circumstances any delay may give rise to damages or resolution, even partial, of the contract, unless the Seller has not expressly accepted these consequences at the time of sales order and confirmation. In the latter case, among the fortuitous events able to release the Seller from responsibility for delivery failure or delay, are indicatively but not mandatory considered disruption of rail service or other services associated with the transport of goods, lack of wagons for loading, mobilization, blockage, or even the war in suppliers of raw materials Countries, staff mobilization, occupation of factories, lockouts, fires, floods, public calamities, and so on.
