- Availability of Products
5.1 The Products that can be purchased from METALSTYLE through the Site are the items in the electronic catalog published on the Site at the time the order is placed, also listed in the PDF catalogs that can be downloaded in the appropriate section of the site.
5.2 Each Product is accompanied by an information page which illustrates its main characteristics (”Product Page”). Products may be “available” (“Available Products”) or “orderable” (“Orderable Products”). The Product Page indicates whether the product is “available” and in this case the price is present or “can be ordered” in this case the price is “0” or “price on request”.
For each product it is therefore indicated whether it is:
– “available”: this means that the product is available to METALSTYLE and, therefore, ready for shipment, except in cases in which, due to exceptional and unforeseeable events, the product, at the time of collection from the warehouse, is unsaleable because missing or damaged at the time of collection from the warehouse and therefore cannot be shipped and there are no other identical products that can be delivered.
By completing the purchase process, the customer then proceeds immediately with the purchase of the product, according to the methods indicated on the Site.
– “can be ordered”: this means that the product can be ordered by METALSTYLE from its suppliers or is to be “made” (often based on customer design specifications).
By completing the purchase process, the user instructs METALSTYLE to order the product from its suppliers in order to check its availability and authorizes it: (i) in the event of a positive outcome of the availability check, to proceed with the purchase of the product, authorizing it for this reason, even in the case of payment by credit card, to carry out, at the time of order transmission, the Payment Authorization pursuant to art. 9.1.1. following; (ii) in the event of a negative outcome of the availability check, the cancellation of the order.
In the case of an order concerning an “Available Product”, METALSTYLE will send the user an e-mail confirming receipt of the order containing the identification number assigned to the order.
In the case of an order concerning an “Orderable Product”, in the working days following receipt of the order, METALSTYLE, in the event of a negative outcome of the availability check, will send the user a second e-mail, communicating the negative outcome . This communication will be followed by the full refund of any price already paid by the customer at the time of the order, depending on the payment method used by the customer. METALSTYLE points out that the visibility times of the refund do not depend on METALSTYLE, which, once the refund order has been given, cannot therefore be considered in default or responsible for refund delays attributable to the credit institution or to other providers such as Paypal or Stripe.
In the event of a positive outcome of the verification of the availability of the Product, the customer will receive an email confirming the shipment of the Product.
In the case of “Orderable Products” the negotiation/sale will proceed with traditional channels.
- Product Information
6.1 Each Product is accompanied by the Product Page. The images and descriptions on the Site reproduce the characteristics of the Products as faithfully as possible. However, the colors of the Products may differ from the real ones due to the settings of the computer systems or computers used by users to display them. Furthermore, the images of the Products on the Site may differ in size or in relation to any accessory products. These images must therefore be understood as indicative and with usage tolerances. For the purposes of the purchase contract, the description of the Product contained in the order form sent by the user will prevail.
7.1 All the prices of the Products published on the Site are in Euros and do not include VAT. Delivery costs, which may vary according to the size of the products whether they are available or can be ordered, are NEVER indicated, so there is the right to request them during the purchase process, in the order summary and in the confirmation e-mail of the order and it is not mandatory to accept them.
7.2 All prices indicated on the price lists do not include packaging, transport and insurance costs, nor any additional charges (taxes, duties, etc.): these items are the responsibility of the User.
7.3 METALSTYLE reserves the right to change the price of the Products at any time. It is understood that the price of the Product that will be charged to the user will be that indicated in the order summary, displayed by the user before placing the order, and that any changes (increase or decrease) subsequent to the transmission of the order itself.
7.4 In the event that a Product is offered on the Site at a discounted price, the Site will indicate (i) the full reference price with respect to which the discount is calculated and (ii) what this full reference price corresponds to. It is understood that the offer of Products at discounted prices will be made only if the full reference price of the Product corresponds to the actual market price of the same.
- Purchase Orders
8.1 The purchase contract is resolutely conditional on the failure to pay the total amount due or, in the case of payment by credit card, on the failure of the Payment Authorization, pursuant to art. 9.1.1 below. In the event that such payment does not take place, the contract will therefore be considered terminated by right. The user will be immediately notified of this resolution and of the consequent cancellation of the order: (i) immediately after the transmission of the order, through the Site, in the event that he has chosen the credit card as the payment method as well as through and -mail; (ii) by e-mail, if the user has chosen one of the other payment methods made available by METALSTYLE, including PayPal.
8.2 The ownership of the Products will be transferred to the user at the time of shipment, to be understood as the moment of delivery of the Product to the carrier. The risk of loss or damage to the Products, for reasons not attributable to METALSTYLE, on the other hand, will be transferred to the user when the user or a third party designated by him and other than the carrier, physically takes possession of the Products.
8.3 The user may cancel his order before having received the Shipping Confirmation (as defined in article 9.1.1), provided that the order has not been prepared for the shipping process. In this case, the user will not be charged any costs. In any case, without prejudice to the right of withdrawal under the terms and conditions set out in the following art. 11.
8.4 In order to place an order relating to a Product through the Site, it is necessary to carefully read and examine these CV.
- Methods of payment
Payment for the Products purchased through the Site can be made using the payment methods described in the following paragraphs. Some payment methods may not be usable due to the type of Product purchased. In the event that one of these methods cannot be used in relation to a specific Product or order, this will be clearly indicated on the Site at the very latest at the beginning of the purchase process. The unavailable payment methods will in any case not be selectable by the user during the appropriate step (“Choose payment and continue”) of the purchase process.
9.1 Credit Card
9.1.1 Payment for the Products purchased on the Site can be made by credit card directly through the Site. METALSTYLE accepts credit cards from the VISA and Mastercard circuits. The accepted credit cards are, in any case, indicated in the footer of each page of the Site. The Payment Authorization is not a charge.
9.2.1 Payment for the Products purchased on the Site can be made using the PayPal payment solution. If the user chooses PayPal as a means of payment, he will be redirected to the website www.paypal.it where he will pay for the Products according to the procedure established and governed by PayPal and the terms and conditions of the contract agreed by the user with PayPal. The data entered on the PayPal site will be processed directly by the same and will not be transmitted or shared with METALSTYLE. METALSTYLE is therefore not able to know and does not store in any way the credit card data connected to the user’s PayPal account or the data of any other payment instrument connected with this account.
9.2.2 In the case of payment by PayPal, the Total Amount Due will be charged by PayPal to the user at the same time as the conclusion of the online contract. In the event of termination of the purchase contract and in any other case of refund, for any reason, the refund amount will be credited to the user’s PayPal account. The crediting times on the payment instrument connected to this account depend exclusively on PayPal and the banking system. Once the credit order has been placed in favor of this account, METALSTYLE cannot be held responsible for any delays or omissions in crediting the user with the refund amount, to dispute which the user must contact PayPal directly.
9.3 Bank Transfer
9.3.1 Payment for the Products purchased on the Site can be made by bank transfer. The bank details for making the transfer will be indicated on the “Payments” page accessible via the appropriate link from the footer of each page of the Site and in the order confirmation e-mail.
9.4.2 Payment for the Products by bank transfer must take place no later than 7 calendar days from the date of the order. Once this deadline has elapsed, the contract may be considered automatically terminated, with consequent reimbursement of the Total Amount Due, if paid late. The termination of the contract will be communicated to the user via e-mail.
9.4.3 In the case of payment by bank transfer, the collection/shipping of the Products will be carried out only after receipt by METALSTYLE of the transfer.
9.4.4 To facilitate the connection between the payment received by bank transfer and the order placed, the customer is asked to indicate the order number in the reason for the bank transfer.
- Methods, expenses and terms of delivery
10.1 The delivery of the Contractual Products is intended as agreed “ex works METASTYLE”.
10.2 Delivery is subject to payment and, unless otherwise specified, the delivery costs are charged to the user. The amount of delivery costs due by the user in relation to a specific order must be requested at the end of the purchase process, in the order summary; the customer has the option but it is not mandatory.
10.3 In the summary of the order and, therefore, before the user proceeds with the transmission of the same, the total price of the order will be indicated. This total, which will also be indicated to the user in the order confirmation e-mail, will constitute the total amount owed by the user in relation to the Product. For each sale made on the Site, METALSTYLE issues an invoice, sending it by e-mail to the holder of the purchase order. For the issuance of the invoice, the information provided by the user at the time of placing the order through the Site and which the user guarantees to be true, will prevail. No change in the invoice will be possible after it has been issued. The user undertakes to hold METALSTYLE harmless and indemnified from any damage to it that may derive, including any penalties, in the event that the data provided by the user through the Site for issuing the invoice are not true.
10.4 The delivery terms are always indicative: therefore, the user’s right to request sums by way of compensation for damage deriving from delayed delivery of the ordered Products is excluded. If the user, informed of the availability of the purchased Product, does not provide for its immediate collection or does not accept delivery of the same, all the expenses and costs deriving from this non-fulfillment will be borne by the same, without prejudice to any greater damage suffered from METALSTYLE. Failure to collect and/or refusal to deliver will also exempt METALSTYLE from any liability for the possession of the product.
10.5 The delivery of the Products is optional, in fact, the shipping costs are to be requested at the end of the purchase procedure.
- Right of withdrawal from the purchase of Products
11.1 Without prejudice to the provisions of art. 11-bis.1 which follows, pursuant to articles 52 et seq. of the Consumer Code, the user who acts as a consumer has the right to withdraw from the Product purchase contract, without having to provide any reason and without having to incur costs other than those provided for by articles 11.5 and 11.9 below, within fourteen calendar days (“Withdrawal Period”). The Withdrawal Period expires after 14 days:
- a) in the case of an order relating to a single Product, from the day on which the user or a third party, other than the carrier and designated by the user, acquires physical possession of the Products;
- b) in the case of a Multiple Order with separate deliveries, from the day on which the user or a third party, other than the carrier and designated by the user, acquires physical possession of the last Product;
- c) in the case of an order relating to the delivery of a Product consisting of multiple lots or pieces, from the day on which the user or a third party, other than the carrier and designated by the user, acquires physical possession of the last lot or piece ;
11.2 To exercise the right of withdrawal, the user must inform METALSTYLE of his decision to withdraw before the expiry of the Withdrawal Period.
11.3 In order to exercise the right of withdrawal, the user can present any other explicit declaration of his decision to withdraw from the contract (“Declaration of Withdrawal”), purely by way of example, by sending an email to servizioclienti@metalstyle. com remembering to specify the order number and the product for which you want to exercise the right of withdrawal.
11.4 In all cases of exercising the right of withdrawal, regardless of the method thereof, METALSTYLE will send the user an e-mail confirming receipt of the withdrawal request (“Withdrawal Confirmation E-mail”).
11.5 The user has exercised his right of withdrawal within the Withdrawal Period, if the communication relating to the exercise of the right of withdrawal is sent by the consumer before the expiry of the Withdrawal Period. It should be noted that, since the burden of proof relating to the exercise of the right of withdrawal before the expiry of the Withdrawal Period rests with the user, it is in the user’s interest to use a durable medium when communicating his withdrawal to METALSTYLE.
11.6 The user must arrange to return the Products to METALSTYLE, using a carrier of his choice and at his own expense, without undue delay and in any case within the term of 14 calendar days from the date on which he communicated to METALSTYLE his decision to withdraw. The deadline is respected, if the user sends back the Products before the expiry of the period of fourteen days (“Return Deadline”). The Product, suitably protected and packed, must be sent to the following address: METALSTYLE S.r.l. via Statale San Pietro 23/B – 16042 Carasco (GE). The direct costs of returning the Products to METALSTYLE are borne by the user.
11.7 If the user withdraws from the contract, METALSTYLE will refund the Total Amount Due paid by the user for the purchased Product. The refund will be made using the same means of payment used by the user, in the case of payment by credit card and PayPal, unless the user has expressly agreed otherwise. In other cases, METALSTYLE will ask the user for the bank details necessary to make the refund, unless the user has expressly agreed otherwise. In the case of partial withdrawal from Multiple Orders, the quantification of the delivery costs to be returned to the user as a result of exercising the right of withdrawal will be carried out as indicated in art. 10.3 above. In any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement.
11.8 The user is solely responsible for the decrease in the value of the goods resulting from handling the Product other than that necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the Product. The Product must in any case be kept, handled and inspected with normal diligence and returned intact, complete in all its parts, fully functional, accompanied by all accessories and leaflets, with identification tags, labels and disposable seal, where present , still attached to the Product and intact and not tampered with, as well as perfectly suitable for the use for which it is intended and free from signs of wear or dirt. The withdrawal also applies to the Product in its entirety. It cannot therefore be exercised in relation to parts and/or accessories of the Product.
11.9 In the event that the withdrawal has not been exercised in accordance with the provisions of the applicable legislation, it will not result in the termination of the contract and, consequently, will not give the right to any refund. METALSTYLE will notify the user, by e-mail, within 5 working days from receipt of the Product, rejecting the request for withdrawal. The Product will remain at METALSTYLE at the user’s disposal for collection, which must take place at the expense and under the responsibility of the user.
11.10 In the event that the Product for which the withdrawal has been exercised has suffered a decrease in value resulting from the handling of the goods other than that necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the Product, the refund amount will be reduced by an amount equal to this decrease in value. METALSTYLE will notify the user of the circumstance and of the consequent reduced refund amount, by e-mail, within 5 working days of receipt of the Product, providing the same, in the event that the refund has already been paid, with the bank details for the payment of the amount owed by you due to the decrease in value of the Product.
11.11 The right of withdrawal does not apply in the event of:
– supply of goods produced and packaged to measure or clearly personalized;
This exclusion of the right of withdrawal will be given specific and express communication on the Product Page as well as during the purchase process, before the user proceeds with the transmission of the order.
