Acceptance of the general conditions of sale
The contract stipulated between the Vendor and the Client shall be considered as defined and fully entered into at the time of acceptance of the order, also solely on a partial basis, on the part of the Vendor. Such acceptance shall be deemed as having tacitly occurred if it is not otherwise communicated in any manner whatsoever to the Client. When placing an order in the various ways that are established the Client declares that he/she has viewed and is aware of all of the information provided to the same during the purchasing procedure and that he/she fully accepts the General Conditions of Sale and Payment transcribed below.
If the Client is a consumer, i.e. a natural (individual) person who buys goods for purposes not related to his/her professional activity, once the online purchase procedure has been completed the client should print or save an electronic copy and in any case keep a record of these General Conditions of Sale in accordance with the provisions of articles 52 and 53 of Legislative Decree 206/2005 concerning distance selling.
Any right of the Client to claim damages or compensation and also any contractual or extra-contractual liability for direct or indirect damage to persons and/or property caused by failure to provide full or partial acceptance of an order is excluded.
At the time the order is placed the Client may only purchase the products listed in the electronic catalogue of the Vendor as presented in the website (URL) http://www.detacchi.it and as described in the relative information sheets. It is understood that, while offering an illustration as faithful as possible to reality, the images accompanying the description of a product may not provide an absolutely perfect representation of the same.

In particular the images presented are for illustration purposes only and do not purport to provide detailed information regarding the products.

This confirmation will contain the date and time of execution of an order and an Order Number to be used in any further communication with the Vendor. The message will include all of the details entered by the Client, who undertakes to verify their correctness and to promptly submit any corrections to the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org.

Methods of payment
The Vendor offers various payment method options:

The transactions are carried out in a totally safe manner thanks to innovative systems providing protection against fraud. The Client is reminded that it is not necessary to be a registered PayPal user in order to complete the transaction. For further information see www.paypal.it.

Shipping of ordered products will take place only after the actual crediting of the amount due to the current (checking) account of the Vendor, which must occur within 5 (five) working days from the date of acceptance of the order. Beyond this deadline, the order will be deemed as automatically cancelled. The bank-transfer payment reference (reason for effecting payment) must include:

Online sales are in fact assimilated with mail-order sales, which are exempt from any obligation regarding the certification of payable amounts by means of sales receipts having fiscal value pursuant to sub-section ‘oo’ of Art. 2 of Presidential Decree 696/1996 and Resolution 274/E of 2009. No invoice will be issued unless this is specifically requested by the Client. In this case the document issued by the Vendor will be forwarded, together with the goods or via e-mail, to the person who placed the order (as required by Art. 14 of Presidential Decree 445/2000 and Leg. Decree 52/2004). For issuance of an invoice, reference will be made to the information provided by the Client at the time the order was placed. No variation may be made following issuance thereof.
Delivery times vary from 3 to 7 working days, depending on the destination.
Charges for transportation costs and handling will be clearly indicated at the time the order is submitted. Payment of the goods by the Client will occur using the method chosen when an order is placed. No further charges will be owing on the part of the Client with respect to the total sum of the order.
No liability may be attributed to the Vendor in the case of a delay in processing an order or late delivery of the same.
Unless otherwise specified by our Customer Service (which may be contacted via the e-mail address email@example.com) delivery will occur at the address of the purchaser. When the courier delivers the goods, the Client will be responsible for checking:
- that the number of boxes delivered corresponds to the number indicated in the shipping document;
- that the packaging is intact and not damaged or wet or in any case altered, also with respect to the sealing materials used (adhesive tape or metallic binding strips).
Any damage to the packaging and/or to the product or a mismatch regarding the number of packages or indicated data must be immediately reported, placing the wording ‘RISERVA DI CONTROLLO’ [or: ‘SUBJECT TO INSPECTION AND VERIFICATION’] on the delivery note of the courier. Once the document of the courier has been signed the Client can not present any claim or objection concerning the external characteristics of the goods delivered.
Any problems concerning the physical integrity, the correspondence or completeness of delivered items must be reported within 7 (seven) days from delivery in the manner established in the document.
The published prices are inclusive of VAT at the rate of 4%, 10% or 22% (depending on the type of goods proposed) in compliance with Italian regulations; prices are subject to modification at any time without notice.
For purchases made by subjects who do not hold a VAT registration (i.e. a natural person who buys goods for purposes not related to his/her professional activity or who does not make a purchase indicating to the Vendor in the order form a reference to a VAT registration) and who are resident in the territory of the Republic of Italy or in the European Community the price is already inclusive of VAT of 4%, 10% or 22%; the price of the product is therefore as indicated in the website.
For purchases made by subjects who hold a VAT registration (i.e. a natural person who buys goods for purposes related to his/her professional activity or makes a purchase providing to the Vendor a reference to a VAT number in the order form) and are resident in the territory of the European Community, with the exception of Italy, VAT is not applied as such operations are not considered subject to the addition of this tax pursuant to Art. 41 of Legislative Decree 331/93 (at the time an order is placed the VAT of 4%, 10% or 22% will be detracted from the published price).
Unless the issuance of an invoice is expressly requested by the Client the Vendor will not issue any fiscal documentation. Online sales are in fact assimilated with mail-order sales, which are exempt from any obligation regarding the certification of payable amounts by means of sales receipts having fiscal value pursuant to sub-section ‘oo’ of Art. 2 of Presidential Decree 696/1996 and Resolution 274/E of 2009. Nonetheless, the Vendor remains obliged to keep a record of sums paid in the appropriate register as required by current regulations. In the event of discrepancies or non-compliance, particular requests or for further clarification the Vendor may be contacted via the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org.

- The right applies to whole products that have been purchased; the right to withdraw from the transaction can not be exercised solely with respect to a single part or a component of a product.
- The purchased goods must be intact and returned in the entire original packaging, complete in all of its parts. To limit damage to the original packaging we would recommend, when possible, that it be placed in a second box.
