Seller data: VP JEWELERY OF PILI VIRGINIA; Via di Paperello 13, Borgo San Lorenzo (FI); 50032; 07007540482; Florence Chamber of Commerce; firstname.lastname@example.org ( Seller ).
Art. 1 Scope of application
1.1 The General Conditions of Sale apply to all sales made by the Seller on the Site.
1.2 If made possible by the Site, entering your tax code when making a purchase implies that you are acting as a consumer pursuant to art. 3, I paragraph, lett. a) of the Consumer Code (Legislative Decree 6 September 2005, n. 206). It should be remembered that the natural person who acts for purposes unrelated to any entrepreneurial, commercial, professional or craft activity carried out qualifies as a consumer. If, on the other hand, the possibility is given to enter the VAT number (yours or that of a legal person), this implies a purchase as a "Professional", pursuant to art. 3, paragraph I, lett. c) of the Consumer Code. The natural or legal person who acts in the exercise of his entrepreneurial, commercial, craft or professional activity, or one of his intermediaries, holds the quality of Professional. The implications of buying as a Consumer rather than a Professional will be described later in this document.
1.3 The terms indicated are to be understood as working days, therefore excluding Saturdays, Sundays and national holidays. The images and descriptions on the Site are to be understood as merely indicative. The colors may differ from the real ones due to the settings of the IT systems or the computers you use to display them.
1.4 The General Conditions of Sale can be modified at any time. Any modifications and/or new conditions will be in effect from the moment of their publication on the Site.

1.8 The Seller is not responsible for the supply of services and/or for the sale of products by such subjects.
1.9 On the websites that can be consulted via these links, the Seller does not carry out any checks and/or monitoring. The Seller is therefore not responsible for the contents of these sites or for any errors and/or omissions and/or violations of the law by them.
1.10 You are required to carefully read these General Conditions of Sale as well as all the other information that the Seller provides on the Site, even during the purchase procedure.
1.11 On the Site it is also possible to submit orders by email. Although compatible, the clauses indicated in these General Conditions of Sale are also valid for these types of orders. The Seller reserves the right to send you different and separate General Conditions of Sale by email, effective only for purchases by email. The Seller also accepts orders by telephone. In this case, these General Conditions of Sale apply, to the extent compatible.
1.12 All elements of the Site are owned by the Seller or by third parties. Unless specifically authorized in writing by the Seller, it is forbidden to reproduce, in whole or in part and by any means whatsoever, distribute, publish, transmit, modify or sell all or part of the content of the Site.

2.7 After the purchase, you will receive an order confirmation email.
Art. 3 Availability of Products
3.1 The Products offered on the Site are limited in number. It may therefore happen, also due to the possibility that several users purchase the same Product at the same time, that the Product ordered is no longer available after the transmission of the purchase order.
3.2 Information on the availability of the Products is available on the Site.
3.3 You will be informed in the event of unavailability of the Product ordered. In this case, you will be entitled to terminate the purchase contract. In any case, please consider that before requesting the termination of the contract, the Seller reserves the right to implement these measures:
If a restocking is possible, an extension of the delivery terms, offered by the Seller, with indication of the new delivery term.

The amount of the discount voucher, the term within which can be used and any limitations will be communicated from time to time by the Seller.
3.4 If a refund of the amount paid for the purchase of Products which later turned out to be unavailable is requested, the Seller will make the refund within a maximum period of 10 days.
3.5 In the event that you make use of the right of termination, the contract is terminated. In the event that the payment of the total amount due, consisting of the price of the Product, the shipping costs, if applied, and any other additional cost, as resulting from the order ( Total Amount Due ) has already taken place, the Seller will reimburse the Total Amount Due in accordance with the provisions of the article "Methods of payment" below .
Article 4 Prices
4.1 On the Website, the prices are excluding VAT as it is not applicable.
4.2 Furthermore, on the Website the prices do not include the WEEE contribution as Products are sold that are not subject to the relative regulations.
4.3 The Seller reserves the right to modify the price of the Products, at any time, without notice, it being understood that the price charged to you will be that indicated on the Site at the time the order is placed and that any variations (increase or decrease) following the transmission of the same.
4.4 The free or otherwise of the shipping costs of the Products is indicated from time to time (in the purchase procedure, in the product sheet or in any case on the Site itself).
4.5 The Seller will ship the Products only after receiving confirmation of the payment authorization or after the Total Amount Due has been credited. The ownership of the Products will be transferred to you at the time of shipment, to be understood as the moment of delivery of the Product to the carrier. The risk of loss or damage to the Products, for reasons not attributable to the Seller, however, will be transferred to you when you, or a third party designated by you and other than the carrier, physically takes possession of the Products.
4.6 The purchase contract is resolutely conditional on non-payment of the Total Amount Due. Unless otherwise agreed in writing with you, the order will consequently be cancelled.
Art. 5 Methods of payment
5.1 This article describes the payment methods available on the Site.
5.2 On the Site you can purchase using payment cards. The charge will be made only after (i) the details of your payment card used for payment have been verified and (ii) the company issuing the payment card you used has released the debit authorization. In application of Directive 2015/2366/ (EU) on payment services in the internal market (PSD2), the user is informed that he may be required to complete the purchase process by satisfying the authentication criteria required by the payment institution in charge of manage the online payment transaction. The authentication criteria refer to the user's identity (to satisfy this criterion the user must be registered on the Site during the purchase operation) and to the simultaneous knowledge of the authentication code transmitted by the payment institution (Strong Customer Authentication ). Failure to complete the procedure described above may make it impossible to finalize the purchase on the Site. The confidential data of the payment card (card number, holder, expiration date, security code) are encrypted and transmitted directly to the manager of the payments without passing through the servers used by the Seller. The Seller therefore never has access to and does not store, even if you choose to store such data on the Site, the data of your payment card used to pay for the Products. The footer of the Site indicates the symbols of the payment cards that can be used on the Site.
5.3 It is not possible to pay by bank transfer on the Site.
5.4 It is not possible to purchase via cash on delivery on the Site, unless otherwise agreed with the Seller.
5.5 If the value of the discount code is less than that of the order, the remaining amount can be completed according to the payment methods provided on the Site. Each discount code can be used for a single purchase. In no case can discount vouchers be converted into cash.
5.6 Any alternative methods other than those indicated above are or will be described in this article.
On the Site it is also possible to make purchases using the PayPal payment solution. If you choose PayPal as the means of payment, you will be redirected to the website www.paypal.it where you will make the payment according to the procedure established and governed by PayPal and the terms and conditions of the contract agreed between the user and PayPal. The data entered on the PayPal site will be processed directly by the same and will not be transmitted or shared with the Seller. The Seller is therefore not able to know and does not store in any way the data of the payment card connected to your PayPal account or the data of any other payment instrument connected with this account.
Art. 6 Delivery of the Products
6.1 The delivery of the Products is foreseen in: Europe.
6.2 The delivery obligation is fulfilled by transferring to you the material availability or in any case control of the Product.
6.3 Delivery time of the Products from the sending of the order: 28 working days.
6.4 The term indicated in art. 6.3 is to be understood as indicative and not peremptory. The Seller therefore reserves the right to deliver the Products within 30 days of sending the order. It is up to you to check the condition of the delivered Product. It being understood that the risk of loss or damage to the Product, for reasons not attributable to the Seller, is transferred when you, or a third party designated by you and other than the carrier, materially takes possession of the Product, the Seller recommends that you check the number of Products received and that the packaging is intact, not damaged, wet or otherwise altered, even in the sealing materials and you are invited, in your interest, to indicate any anomalies on the carrier's transport document, accepting the package with reserve . In the event that the package shows obvious signs of tampering or alteration, it is advisable to promptly notify the Seller.
6.5 With reference to the possibility of requesting the delivery of the Products to a "collection point", the Seller informs you that the Site does not offer the possibility of collecting the Product at a "collection point" other than the address you communicated during the of the purchase process. In any case, you are invited to access the Site regularly to check if this delivery option is subsequently made available on the Site.
Article 7 Right of withdrawal
7.1 The user is invited to view this article with particular attention, which regulates the right of withdrawal.
7.2 The right of withdrawal is the right of the Consumer to dissolve the purchase contract without being obliged to provide a reason. If you purchased as a Professional, the right of withdrawal does not apply, unless otherwise agreed with the Seller. Any exceptions to the right of withdrawal are reported in this article 7. If there are no exceptions to the right of withdrawal, this article 7 is fully applicable.
Made-to-measure or clearly personalized goods are sold on the Site. If you act as a consumer, the following rules on the right of withdrawal do not apply due to a specific provision of the law. In fact, if this were not the case, the Seller would be unable to resell a Product created specifically for you. The Website sells Products whose price is linked to fluctuations in the financial market that the Seller is unable to control and which may occur during the withdrawal period. Therefore, in this case the right of withdrawal does not apply and the following rules on the right of withdrawal do not apply. Products which, after delivery, are, by their nature, inseparably mixed with other goods. With reference to these goods, the right of withdrawal is excluded and the following rules do not apply.
7.3 If you are a Consumer (and in the event that no exceptions to this effect apply) you have the right to withdraw from the Product purchase contract without having to provide any reason and without having to incur costs other than those provided for in this article within fourteen calendar days ( withdrawal period ). To exercise the right of withdrawal, you must inform the Seller, before the expiry of the Withdrawal Period, of your decision to withdraw. To this end, you can write to the Seller to the contacts indicated in the Introduction, or use the contact form that may be present on the Site. You have exercised your right of withdrawal within the Withdrawal Period if the communication relating to the exercise of the right of withdrawal is from you sent before the expiry of the Withdrawal Period. Unless otherwise agreed, the direct costs of returning the Products are borne by the Consumer, as well as the responsibility for transporting them. In case of exercise of the right of withdrawal, the Product must be delivered to the Seller's headquarters, or to the different address communicated by the Seller. The Withdrawal Period expires after 14 days:
in the case of an order relating to a single Product, from the day on which you or a third party, other than the carrier and designated by you, acquires physical possession of the Products; in the case of a Multiple Order with separate deliveries, from the day on which you or a third party, other than the carrier and designated by you, acquires physical possession of the last Product; or in the case of an order relating to the delivery of a Product consisting of multiple lots or pieces, from the day on which you or a third party, other than the carrier and designated by you, acquires physical possession of the last lot or piece.
7.4 If the withdrawal is applicable, the Seller will refund the Total Amount Due, including delivery costs, if applicable, without undue delay and in any case no later than 14 calendar days from the day on which the Seller was informed of the 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 Products have been shipped using a carrier chosen by the Consumer and at the expense of the latter, the Seller may suspend the refund until receipt of the Products or until the Consumer demonstrates that he has returned the Products, if previous one. The Consumer is only responsible for the decrease in the value of the goods resulting from handling the Product other than that necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the Product. The Product must in any case be kept, handled and inspected with normal diligence and returned intact, complete in all its parts, fully functional, accompanied by all accessories and leaflets, with identification tags, labels and disposable seal, where present , still attached to the Product and intact and not tampered with, as well as perfectly suitable for the use for which it is intended and free from signs of wear or dirt. The withdrawal also applies to the Product in its entirety. It cannot therefore be exercised in relation to parts and/or accessories of the Product. In the event that the Product for which the withdrawal has been exercised has suffered a decrease in value resulting from handling of the goods other than that necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the Product, the Seller reserves the right to deduct from the redemption amount an amount equal to this decrease in value. The Seller will communicate this circumstance and the consequent reduced refund amount, providing, in the event that the refund has already been paid, the bank details for the payment of the amount due by the user due to the decrease in value of the Product. In the event that the withdrawal has not been exercised in accordance with the provisions of the applicable legislation, it will not result in the termination of the contract and, consequently, will not give the right to any refund.
7.5 In the light of the above, the Seller deems it appropriate to point out to you that the costs of returning the Product will be at your expense and under your responsibility.

The Products sold on the Site may, depending on their nature, be covered by a conventional guarantee issued by the manufacturer (Conventional Guarantee). You can assert this guarantee only against the manufacturer.
