GENERAL TERMS OF SALE
These general terms (hereafter, “General Terms”) regulate the distance sale of Society Limonta branded products finalised via the website uk.societylimonta.com (hereafter, the “Website”) under the following terms.
Products purchased on the Website are sold directly by Limonta S.p.A. (hereafter, the “Seller”), with registered headquarters in Italy, Via Cesare Battisti 15 – 23845 Costa Masnaga (LC), registered at the Companies Register of Lecco at no. 81509, Tax Code and VAT No. 00201760139.
The Seller, in order to meet the needs and expectations of its customers, has decided to create, alongside its exclusive Society Limonta sales outlets and the network of dealers of the Society Limonta brand, a distance sales network for its products (or part of them) via the Website. The list of Society Limonta products available for distance sales can be consulted on the Website.
These terms of sale regulate the sale of products branded Society Limonta.
1.1 The distance sales service described in these General Terms is aimed at “Customers” meaning both individuals aged over 18 who are making purchase as a final consumer.
1.2 The resale, rental or transfer for any commercial purposes or for profit of products purchased on the Website is expressly prohibited.
1.3 In view of its sales policy, the Seller may, in any case, reserve the right not to process orders that it deems not to be compliant.

2.1 The Website sets out the essential characteristics of the products, their price and availability. For each product, in addition, photographic images and descriptions are provided to assist Customers. However, the images and colours of the products on sale on the Website may not correspond to the actual characteristics due to the resolution of the monitor and browser used by the Customer. As a result, the Seller will not be responsible for any inadequacy of the images found on the Website.
2.2 The Seller reserves the right to vary the products on sale on the Website at any time.
The Seller does not guarantee that the products found on the Website are available in the stores and vice versa. Customers must rely upon the description and characteristics of the product presented on the Website.
2.3 Whilst the Seller makes every effort to ensure that the contents of the Website are accurate, it does not guarantee that products displayed on the Website are always available to purchase. Problems may occasionally arise in relation to the availability of the products. In these cases, the Seller will inform the Customer promptly (by telephone or e-mail) offering the possibility of choosing a similar product.
If the Customer decides to cancel the order and if the charge has already been paid, the Customer will be promptly reimbursed.
2.4 For some sizes, the products may be available “upon request”. In this case, the Customer may send the request to the Seller which will check if the product is available in the warehouse, responding to the Customer as soon as possible and, in any case, within 45 (forty-five) days commencing from the day after that on which the order request was sent.
The Seller reserves the right not to implement an order request that is incomplete or incorrect or if the products are not available.

7.1 The Seller guarantees that the products sold on the Website are authentic items obtained by way of a production process that makes each item different and unique. Therefore, small discrepancies compatible with the craftsmanship of the products and which do not, in any case, affect the functionality and/or appearance and/or image of the products are not considered to be defects and deformities.
7.2 The measurements indicated on the product specifications on the Website are subject to a tolerance of +/-3%. The Seller, therefore, is not liable for alterations of the dimension of the products within those limits.
7.3 Where the products have any defects or deformities, the Customer is entitled, at no cost, to the repair or replacement of the product or to reject the products and be reimbursed for the sum paid from the Seller.
7.4 Where the Customer requests, as set out in Section 7, the repair or replacement of the product due to a proven defect of conformity of the product, the delivery costs relating to the return and subsequent re-shipment are borne by the Seller.

7.5 The Seller disclaims any liability for defects or deformities of the product that occur as a result of any failure to respect the washing instructions or due to negligence, fault or wilful misconduct or for improper use of the products.
In accordance with the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, the Consumer is entitled to withdraw from the contract within fourteen (14) days from the date on which the product was delivered without providing any reason. To exercise the right of withdrawal, the Customer is required to complete the specific “return form” found in the packaging of the purchased products and also attached to the order confirmation e-mail, or to send a specific communication highlighting the clear intention to withdraw from the contract. That communication should contain an indication of the Product for which the Customer intends to exercise the right of withdrawal and the order number. The return form or any communication must also be sent to the Seller by way of e-mail to the following address: email@example.com. The Seller will promptly send to the Customer confirmation of receipt of the return form or the cited declaration.
8.2. The right of withdrawal is understood to be correctly exercised if the following conditions are satisfied:
1. The return form or communication must be sent by the deadline set out above;
2. The products must not have been used, washed or worn;
3. The identification tag must not have been removed from the product;
4. The products must be returned in their original packaging;
5. The products must be returned to the Seller promptly;
6. The products must not be damaged.
8.3. If the Customer exercises the right of withdrawal:
The Customer undertakes to return the products promptly after the communication of withdrawal (sent in accordance with the methods set out in article 8.1) to the following address:
SS 36 – km 36, no. 9
23846 Garbagnate Monastero (LC) – Italy
8.4. The Seller undertakes to refund the price and the shipment costs paid by the Customer to receive the goods as soon as possible and, in any case, within fourteen (14) days from the date on which the Seller became aware of the exercise of the right of withdrawal.
The Seller, however, may retain the refund until it has received the goods or until the Customer has proved that he has returned the goods, depending on which condition occurs first. Shipping costs for returning the goods will not be refunded.
8.5. The Seller will make the refund using the same payment method used by the Customer for the initial transaction, unless otherwise agreed with the Customer. In case of partial return, the Seller will not refund shipping costs.
8.6. If the returned product is found to be in one of the conditions set out in point 8.2 and the return cannot be accepted, the Seller will contact the Customer and, in this case, the Customer may choose to have the product back at its expense. Where, on the other hand, the Customer does not wish to have the product back, the Seller reserves the right to retain the products and the sum corresponding to the purchase price of the goods.
8.7. In accordance with Art.57, Paragraph 2 of the Consumer Code, the Customer is solely liable for the reduction in value of the goods resulting from any handling of the same other than what is necessary to establish their nature, characteristics and functioning. The Seller, therefore, reserves the right to refuse the return of any products that may be damaged, dirty, deteriorated or are in a condition that infers that they have been used for purposes other than those indicated above. The Seller also reserves the right to claim compensation for damage that may be attributed to the wilful misconduct or negligence of the Customer when returning the products. The Seller will not be deemed liable in the event of loss or theft of the returned products, not attributable to it, as well as in the event of return to an incorrect address or delays in delivering the products. It is therefore understood that the Customer accepts any shipment risk.
