Sale from Professional to Consumer (B2C)
Legal guarantee of conformity
In the event that the buyer is a Consumer, they are entitled to the legal guarantee of conformity on the goods sold.
In particular, the Seller is obliged to deliver the Product to the Consumer in accordance with the sales contract. To this end, it is assumed, among other things, that the Product complies with the contract if, where applicable, the following circumstances exist:
a) it is suitable for the use for which goods of the same type are normally used;
b) it complies with the description made by the Seller;
c) it has the usual qualities and performance which the Consumer can reasonably expect from goods of the same type, taking into account the nature of the goods and, where appropriate, the public statements about the specific characteristics of the Product made by the Seller in this regard;
The Seller is not bound by the public statements referred to in letter c) above, when, as an alternative, they can show that:
1) they were not aware of the statement and could not know of it under ordinary circumstances;
2) the statement was adequately corrected at the time of the fulfilment of the contract so that the Consumer was aware of the same;
3) the decision to purchase the Product was not influenced by the statement.
If at the time of fulfilment of the contract, the Consumer was aware of any defect and could not ignore it under ordinary circumstances there will be deemed to be no lack of conformity.
In any case, the Seller is excluded from liability if:
1) the Consumer knew of any defects or differences and did not make a formal complaint;
2) the defects or discrepancies derive from instructions provided by the Consumer themselves;
3) the defects or the discrepancies are very slight and any repair is impossible or excessively onerous;
4) defects or discrepancies derive from tampering or technical intervention by unauthorised personnel;
5) the Seller's Product is incorporated / used in another product not attributable to the Seller themselves, and when the discrepancy is due to the design of any product incorporating or using the seller’s product or to the instructions for incorporation / use;
Should delivery of the Products be delayed due to any fault on the Seller’s behalf, liability will be limited in any case to a maximum amount equal to the sale price.
On no account will any expenses incurred by the Consumer themselves be considered as compensation amounts for damages without the express prior consent of the Seller.
Any existence of a conventional Guarantee, along with the relative conditions, applicable to certain products will be communicated on the Website on the specific product sheet.
Should any of the goods ordered not conform to the description, the Consumer has the right, without charge, to repair or replacement of the goods, or to an adequate discount or termination of the contract.
The Consumer can also chooses to ask for the goods to be repaired or replaced, without charge in both cases, unless the requested remedy is objectively impossible or excessively expensive compared to the alternative.
One of the two remedies is considered excessively expensive if it imposes unreasonable costs on the Seller compared to the alternative, taking into account:
a) the value the goods would have if there were no lack of conformity;
b) the extent of the lack of conformity;
c) the possibility that the alternative remedy may be effected without significant inconvenience to the Consumer.
Repairs or replacements will be made within a reasonable time from the request.
The Consumer may also choose to request a reasonable price reduction or termination of the contract where one of the following situations occurs:
a) repair and replacement are impossible or excessively expensive;
b) the Seller has not repaired or replaced the goods within the reasonable time indicated above;
c) the replacement or repair previously carried out has caused considerable inconvenience to the Consumer.
In determining the amount of the discount or the sum to be returned, whether the item has been used or not will be taken into account in any event.
After receiving a complaint about lack of conformity, the Seller can offer any other remedy available, with the following effects:
a) if the Consumer has already requested a specific remedy, the Seller is obliged to implement it, with the necessary consequences as applicable to the deadline mentioned above, unless the Consumer accepts the alternative remedy proposed;
b) if the Consumer has not already requested a specific remedy, they must accept the proposal or reject it by choosing another remedy as indicated above.
In the case of a minor defect for which it was not possible or was excessively expensive to carry out remedial measures, repair or replacement, this does not mean the contract can be terminated.
When the Product does not conform to the description, the Consumer must report it to the Seller within two months of discovery to the certified email address: firstname.lastname@example.org or at certified email email@example.com or alternatively by registered letter/recorded delivery to:
Via dei Colli, 108

The Products all comply with the information on their constituent parts and with the other applicable regulations.
