Conclusion and performance of the Contract – lack of Product availability
To make a purchase, the Customer needs to register on the Website, access the dedicated personal area with their Credentials, choose the Product they wish to buy and add it to the dedicated section of the Website, the “Shopping Cart”, where Customers can view the Product features, price, applicable VAT, shipping costs, and estimated delivery times. Registration and access to the Website as well as the use of the e-commerce service are entirely free of charge. The only costs the Customer will have to cover concern the IT equipment and Internet connection needed to use the e-commerce services.
The order can be sent after the Customer has entered the shipping data and the data needed to make the payment requested by the appointed intermediary in the dedicated payment section of the Website. This data may be changed until the “Purchase” button has been clicked on. Payment will be made by means of credit card or PayPal and the amount will usually be charged to the Customer’s account within the time limits established by the chosen payment service. By submitting the order, the Customer expressly gives their consent to let VENINI S.p.A. use their email address, telephone number, and mail address in order to conclude and perform the contract.
VENINI S.p.A. will send the Customer an order confirmation email containing the conditions of sale and the details of the order. The Customer’s order and the order confirmation with the respective applicable General Terms are electronically stored by VENINI S.p.A. and the Customer may request a copy of these documents by sending an email to VENINI S.p.A. at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The sales contract for the Product will be considered as terminated when VENINI S.p.A. receives the payment from the Customer.
The validity of the contract is subordinated to Product availability. In the event that the Product is no longer available, VENINI S.p.A. will notify the Customer within 20 days of receipt of the Order and reserves the right to terminate the sales contract and refund the full price paid by the Customer, without any further charge or expense of any kind to be borne by VENINI S.p.A..

Warranty and Limitation of Liability of VENINI S.p.A.
For “consumer” Customers, the provisions relating to “consumer goods” set out in the Consumer Code apply (Legislative Decree 206 of September 6, 2005), and, in particular, the legal guarantee of conformity pursuant to art. 129, as well as the applicable provisions currently in force. In the particular case of a lack of Product conformity not deriving from the normal use of the Product, the Customer has the right to restore the Product’s conformity without incurring in any expense, as established in art. 130 of the Consumer Code.
The Customer is required to report the lack of conformity to VENINI S.p.A. by registered mail with acknowledgement of receipt within the peremptory term of two months from the date the defect was discovered. VENINI S.p.A. is liable when the lack of conformity occurs within two years from delivery.
In any case, the action aimed at asserting any defects not fraudulently concealed by VENINI S.p.A. is statute-barred within 26 (twenty-six) months from the delivery of the goods.
The warranty is valid on condition that the Products are used correctly, in compliance with the relevant instructions for use and recommendations, and provided that the Customer presents the delivery documentation and the order number. Without prejudice to the mandatory limitations provided by law, VENINI S.p.A. does not offer any guarantee or declaration of conformity of the Products in addition to what is expressly indicated on the Website, including the Product’s conformity to technical requirements, quality or standards of any nature, for specific or particular purposes.
Customer’s Right of Withdrawal
Pursuant to articles 52 and following of the Consumer Code, the Customer who qualifies as a “consumer” under the Consumer Code has the right to withdraw from the Contract, without penalty and without specifying the reason, within 14 (fourteen) days from the day of delivery of the Products.
The consumer Customer may exercise this right through the dedicated procedure explained in the restricted area of the Website by following the relevant instructions, i.e. by using the withdrawal form provided on the Website.
Should the customer decide to exercise his right of withdrawal, the Products must be returned to the registered office of VENINI S.p.A. via Giotto 5, 30121 Mogliano Veneto in their original condition, complete with all their parts, accessories, documentation and packaging, which should, as far as possible, be kept intact.
The costs for returning the Products will be borne exclusively by the Customer and will be communicated to the Customer in advance. The Customer shall also be liable for the Products until they are received by VENINI S.p.A..
Within 14 (fourteen) days following the receipt of the returned Products, VENINI S.p.A. will refund the price to the Customer, net of the return costs indicated above.
Unless otherwise agreed between the parties, the Customer may not exercise the right of withdrawal, inter alia, in the following cases: – the supply of custom made or clearly personalized goods, or goods which, by their nature, cannot be returned or are likely to deteriorate and/or alter rapidly; – in all other cases provided for by law, with particular reference to art. 59 of the Consumer Code. However, the right of withdrawal is excluded if the Product has been manipulated in a manner different from that which is strictly necessary to establish its nature, characteristics and functioning.
For the purposes of the Contract, written form includes any communication by electronic means that enables a durable recording of its content (such as, for example, emails and html pages).
