Product purchase process
The purchase order must be made online through the "Buy Now" section by clicking on the desired products that will be added to the shopping cart. In order to complete the Purchase Order, the Customer can enter the required data in the form.
To purchase the Products, the Customer must enter the Products in a specific “basket”, after having read and accepted the Terms of Sale, with particular reference to the delivery costs, any costs for additional services and the information on the Right of Withdrawal, including the information on exclusion of the Right of Withdrawal in the case of made-to-measure Products or in the case of promotions, and he/she must select the desired payment method.
All Purchase Orders sent to the Seller must be completed in all their parts and must contain all information required for the exact identification of the Customer, the ordered Products and the location of their delivery. The Customer is strictly prohibited from entering false and/or invented and/or made up information in the purchasing process. The personal details and e-mail address must be exclusively the personal data of the Customer and not third party or made up details. The Seller reserves the right to pursue any violation and abuse, in the interest of and for the protection of all the consumers.

The Seller is relieved of any liability arising out of any failure or problems related to the e-mail address provided by the Customer for the sending of the order confirmation.
The Purchase Order sent to the Seller is valid as a contractual offer by the Customer, manifested online and containing information on the essential characteristics of each ordered Product, the respective price, payment methods, delivery methods, shipping costs and any additional costs.
Upon receipt of the Purchase Order, the Seller will automatically send to the e-mail address indicated by the Customer in the Purchase Order an e-mail confirming receipt of that order - which DOES NOT constitute acceptance of the purchase order - merely confirming to the Customer that the order has been received and sent for the data verification process and the availability check of the requested Products.

In derogation of the foregoing, the Purchase Order sent by the Customer shall be understood to be invalid and ineffective, and not accepted by the Seller, where the Seller has reasonable and well-grounded reason to believe that the Customer:
• intends to purchase the Products not for personal reasons but for reasons related to its or other people's business or professional activity. All Purchase Orders made, in fact, must correspond to normal consumption requirements, both in relation to the number of Products purchased with an individual Purchase Order, and in the case of multiple orders relating to the same Product even where each Purchase Order includes a quantity of Products corresponding to normal consumption requirements;
• uses false or made up names in the purchase process in violation of the provisions of the paragraph above entitled “Product purchase process”. In those cases, the online sales contract will be understood not to be finalised and the Seller will send to the Customer, by e-mail, a communication certifying the non-acceptance of the Purchase Order and the lack of finalisation of the contract, cancelling any debit and/or cost charged to the Customer.
The Seller also reserves the right to process the Purchase Order partially in the case of unavailability of one or more Products ordered by the Customer. In this case, the Customer will only be charged the sum corresponding to the order partially processed.
Every Purchase Order sent will be archived in the Seller's database. The Customer may obtain information on his/her Purchase Order by sending an e-mail to the Customer Service at the address email@example.com indicating the code relating to the order.

All payments by the Customer may only be made by means of one of the following methods: credit card, PayPal, bank transfer.
Payments made by credit card or by other electronic forms are done via protected connection, directly linked to the Bank that handles and manages the "online" payment service of which the Seller is a partner. The Seller does not come into possession of the credit card details of its Customers and it may not be deemed liable for any fraudulent uses of the card. Those details are received directly and exclusively by the banks that authorise the payment, proceeding only to communicate the outcome to the Seller.
When paying by PayPal, the Customer must follow the procedures found on the PayPal website. The amount relating to the order will be debited from the Customer's PayPal account upon receipt of the order by the Seller. For each transaction performed with the PayPal account, the Customer will receive a confirmation e-mail directly from PayPal. If the order is subsequently cancelled, the amount refunded will be credited to the Customer's PayPal account and the Seller cannot be held liable for any damages, direct or indirect, caused by delays in the release of the amount by PayPal.
In the case of payment by advance bank transfer, the Customer will be able to use his home banking indicating the “IBAN” code set out in the Purchase Order as well as the order number.
Where, for any reason, the debit of the sums due from the Customer is found to be impossible, the Seller will send to the e-mail address indicated by the Customer a communication of non-acceptance of the purchase order. The purchase process will automatically be cancelled and the online sales contract will be deemed not to be finalised.
Any repayment to the Customer will be credited using the payment method used by the Customer in the order or using a manner chosen by the Customer.
The Seller will send a notification e-mail once the refund has been made to the e-mail address indicated by the Customer in the Purchase Order.
For each Purchase Order, the Seller will issue the respective invoice based upon information provided by the Customer in the purchase order.

The delivery timescales in Italy and in European Union are on average one/two working days, four for non-European Union countries. The stated delivery timescales are purely indicative.
Subject to cases of force majeure or unforeseeable events, the delivery timescales, in accordance with the provisions of Article 61 of the Consumer Code, do not exceed 30 days commencing from the day after that of transmission of the Purchase Order to the Seller, except where the Seller communicates - within the same timescale or by the last date agreed for the delivery, even by e-mail - the temporary impossibility of delivering the same. In that case, the Seller will proceed to refund any sums already paid by the Customer for payment of the invoice.
At the time of shipment, the Customer will be sent a shipment confirmation e-mail, together with a “tracking number” which will allow him/her to monitor the delivery status on the courier's website.
The delivery of the Products will be made to the address indicated in the Purchase Order exclusively in the presence of the Customer or his/her officer, provided that they are an adult, who must sign the delivery documents for the Products.

Any damages to the package and/or to the Product or the lack of correspondence of the number of packages or the indications must be disputed immediately in writing by the Customer or by his/her officer on the transportation document in the dedicated space. In that case, the Customer or his/her officer must reject the damaged goods without opening the package and the Seller, once the damaged package is received, will send a new shipment of the ordered Product. This is without prejudice, in any case, to the right of withdrawal of the Customer set out in the paragraph below entitled "Right of Withdrawal".
Once the transportation document is signed without the Customer or his/her officer having raised any dispute, the Customer may not bring any dispute in relation to the external characteristics of the delivered package.

If the Order has been paid by Bank Transfer, the refund will be by Bank Transfer: the customer is obliged to contact customer service by e-mail at email@example.com to inform the correct IBAN for the transfer. Reimbursement times depend directly on banks.
Legal warranty of Products
For any defect of conformity existing upon delivery of the Products, the Customer, in accordance with the provisions of Article 130 of the Consumer Code, will be entitled to the restoration at no cost of the conformity of the Product by way of repair or replacement or, where this is not possible, a reduction of the purchase price or termination of the online sales Contract.
There is a defect of conformity when the goods purchased:
• is not suitable for use for which goods of the same type are normally used;
• does not conform to the description made by the seller and does not possess the qualities of the good that the seller has presented to the consumer as a sample or model;
• does not present the usual quality and performance of goods of the same type that the consumer can reasonably expect, including the statements made in advertising or labeling;
• is not suitable for the particular intended use of the consumer and has been brought to the attention of the seller at the time of the conclusion of the Contract and that the seller has accepted.
You are therefore excluded from the scope of the Legal Guarantee any other defects of any kind resulting from accidental accidents or liability or from use of the product not in accordance with its intended use and / or in the instructions for use of the product.
Remember that despite Laboratorio Creativo Geppetto Srls sole proprietorship constantly takes steps to ensure that the photographs of the products shown on the Site are faithful reproductions of the original products, including the adoption of any technological solution possible to minimize inaccuracies, it is always possible some Variations due to the technical characteristics and color-matching features provided by the computer used by the Customer. The Seller will not be responsible for any inadequacy of graphic representations of products displayed on the Site if due to such technical reasons, since such representations are merely illustrative.
The Seller is liable for defects of conformity where the same manifest, at detriment of the warranty, within a period of two years from the delivery date of the Product. The Customer must, however, report the defect of conformity within the term of two months from its discovery, by sending an e-mail to the Customer Service at the address firstname.lastname@example.org indicating the code relating to the order and the problem identified, attaching, where possible, some photos of the same.
The guarantee is therefore valid, provided that the following conditions are met:
• the defect occurs within 24 months of the date of delivery of the products;
• the Customer has a formal complaint regarding the defects within a maximum of 2 months from the date on which the defect was recognized by the latter, unless this is contrary to the prevailing mandatory rules of the country of habitual residence of the Customer.
Unless otherwise proven, it is assumed that the defects of conformity that occur within six months of delivery of the product existed at that date unless such a hypothesis is incompatible with the nature of the product or the nature of the defect of conformity. From the seventh month following the delivery of the product, it will be the burden of the consumer to prove that the defect of conformity existed at the time of delivery.
In order to benefit from the Legal Guarantee, the Customer must first provide evidence of the date of purchase and delivery of the goods. Therefore, for this purpose, the Customer should keep the purchase invoice or any other document attesting the purchase date (for example credit card statement) and the date of the delivery.
The Seller will contact the Customer to organise the collection of the Product.
The Customer using the Legal Guarantee is relieved of any cost.
The Seller reserves the right to check the existence of the reported defect and to perform the repair or replacement only after that check. If, following that check, no defect of conformity is found, the Seller reserves the right to charge to the Customer the costs of verification, restoration and transportation.
In the event of a defect in conformity duly denounced within the terms, Customer will be entitled to:
• on a primary basis, free repair or replacement of the goods at the Customer's choice, unless the remedy required is objectively impossible or excessively burdensome with respect to the other and, therefore, in the specific case, given the type of sale, replacement, where this is possible in relation to the number of specimens still available for sale;
• on a secondary basis (in the case where repair or replacement is impossible or excessively expensive or repair or replacement has not been carried out within a reasonable time, or the repair or replacement that has already been carried out has caused significant consumer disadvantages) to the reduction of the price or termination of the Contract, at the Customer's choice.
An over-burdensome remedy is intended to impose on the seller unreasonable expenses compared to alternative remedies that may be implemented, considering:
• of the value that the good would have if there was no defect of conformity;
• the extent of conformity failure;
• of the possibility that the alternative remedy can be implemented without major disadvantages for the consumer.
In the event of termination of the Contract, Laboratorio Creativo Geppetto Srls sole proprietorship will return the total amount paid to the Customer. In case of price reduction Laboratorio Creativo Geppetto Srls sole proprietorship will return to the Customer the amount of reduction previously agreed.
The amount of redemption or reduction will be communicated via email to the Customer and credited to the chosen payment medium or settlement.
Liability of the Seller
The Seller will not be liable for any disservice attributable to causes of force majeure of any nature and type, where it is unable to implement the requested supply in the agreed timescales provided by the Terms of Sale. Causes of force majeure include, but are not limited to, measures of the Public Authority, strike of its employees, employees of third party companies or employees of the couriers or carriers used by the Seller, as well as any other circumstance that is beyond the control of or independent from the latter.
The Seller, except in the case of wilful misconduct or gross negligence, will also not be liable for any disservice or malfunctioning related to use of the internet network out of its control or that of its sub-suppliers and it may not be deemed liable in relation to damages, losses and costs incurred by the Customer following the lack of implementation of the online sales contract for reasons not attributable to the same.

The Seller will do its utmost to ensure that the contents of the Website are updated; however, it cannot be excluded that errors and/or inaccuracies may occur (typing errors, inaccuracies or omissions, for example, relating to the price, Product availability and Product specifications). The Seller therefore reserves the right to correct the errors, inaccuracies or omissions even after the Purchase Order has been sent and it also reserves the right to change or update the information at any time without prior communication.
The provision of data is necessary for the finalisation and implementation of the online sales contract; any failure to provide it will not allow for the finalisation and/or implementation of the online sales contract.
Changes to Terms of Sale
The Seller reserves the right to change the Terms of Sale at any time. The Customer will be subject to the new terms of the Terms of Sale in force from time to time when making the order, except where the changes to the Terms of Sale were required by law or by the relevant authorities (in which case they will apply also to the orders in progress).
If any provision of the Terms of Sale is deemed to be invalid, void or for any reason inapplicable, that condition will not prejudice the validity and effectiveness of the other provisions.
