It is specified that shipping costs do not include any customs charges and local taxes, which remain the sole responsibility of the Customer. Shipping charges are calculated by the system based on the weight of the items ordered and the shipping address.

6.2 For deliveries, shipping costs vary according to weight and destination address and, therefore, they will be calculated automatically by the system when the delivery address is entered when filling out the order form. For purchases in which the value of the goods (understood as the value of the products purchased alone) exceeds, net of any discounts applied, the amount of € 59.00, shipping is free within the Italian territory only, except for temporary additional special promotions.

6.3 In any case, the final price, with the precise amount of shipping costs, is displayed in the final stage of the purchase transactions before the Customer activates the "Pay by credit card or paypal" button.

6.5 For payment by credit card (payment at the same time as the conclusion of the transmission of the order form), the bank of reference will authorize the debiting of the amount relating to the purchase made. In the event that the Seller cannot, for the reasons referred to in paragraphs 4.6 and 4.7, process the order for the Products, the same will request the cancellation of the transaction and the reversal of the amount committed. The timing of release depends solely on the banking system. Once the cancellation of the transaction has been made, neither the Seller, nor the parties appointed by the Seller to manage the payment phase, shall in any way be held responsible for delays and/or damages caused by the banking system. At no time during the procedure of purchase by credit card, the Seller may become aware of personal information relating to the holder of the same since the information is transmitted directly to the site of the banking institution handling the transaction, a protected site. The financial information (for example, the number of the credit/debit card or the date of its expiration) will in fact be forwarded, via encrypted protocol, to the banks that provide the relevant remote electronic payment services, without third parties being able, in any way, to have access to it. This information, moreover, will never be used by the Seller or the parties appointed by the same except to complete the procedures relating to the purchase and to issue the relevant refunds in the event of any returns of products, following the exercise of the right of withdrawal by the Customer, or if it is necessary to prevent or report to the police the commission of fraud through the Site.

6.6 In case of payment by Pay Pal, the payment will be handled through the service provider PayPal (Europe) S.à r.l., under the PayPal terms of use available at https://www.paypal.com/it/webapps/mpp/ua/legalhub-full?locale.x=it_IT. In case of payment by ShopPay the payment will be handled directly through the relevant provider Shopify International Limited, under the conditions consultable at https://www.shopify.com/legal/terms. In such cases, the Customer's financial data will also be handled directly by PayPal or Shopify for any reimbursement transactions.

6.7 In the event that payment made by any of the available means fails or is rejected by the payment service provider, the Seller is not obligated to execute the order. Any costs or fees resulting from the failed or rejected payment shall be borne by the User. The Customer therefore acquires ownership of the Products and the right to the provision of the Services only upon the outcome of payment of the due amount in favor of the Seller.

6.8 Before completing the order, the Customer has the right to request the issuance of a tax invoice by checking the appropriate box during the purchase procedure.

There is no provision for collection by the Customer.

7.2 In the event that the assigned courier sends the goods back to the Seller as a result of impossibility of delivery at the Customer's premises, the costs of the unsuccessful shipment will be borne by the Customer, unless the Customer has exercised the right of withdrawal referred to in paragraph 10 for the case in which the impossibility of delivery is not attributable to the Customer.
