ART. 2 – SALE OF PRODUCTS
The sale of products is conducted in accordance with the terms and conditions of sale published on the Website at the time of placing the order. The contract is completed and legally binding for the Parties when confirmation of the order is sent to the Customer’s e-mail address provided by the Customer when registering on the website. Products are made to order based on a specific request from the Customer and following the specific instructions given on the website. The purchase of personalised products requires advance payment and excludes the right of withdrawal from the contract except in circumstances beyond the Customer's control such as faulty products or an error in calculating the invoice, for which the Customer is not responsible. The prices and products for sale may be subject to changes without the need to give prior notice, without prejudice to the terms and conditions of sale applied at the time of entering into the contract.
ART.3 – THIRD-PARTY SALES
This refers to entities that are not part of Macron S.p.A. that are responsible for managing stores, providing services or selling products on the website. In particular, the services and sales on this website are carried out by the approved retailer indicated in Art. 1. Registering as an approved retailer must be agreed by Macron which will assess these businesses and whether their product range is compatible with the aim of this website. Macron S.p.A. cannot in any way be held liable for any activities, products and content provided by the approved retailer or by any other third party.
ART.4 – ROLE OF MACRON S.P.A.
Macron S.p.A. enables third-party retailers – such as approved Retailers - to sell their products on the Macronstore.com website. In its capacity as an e-commerce website provider, Macron S.p.A. facilitates transactions which are carried out on the website, but is not part of the sales contract relating to any products sold by third-party retailers. Therefore, Macron S.p.A. is not included in this contract which is only between the buyer and the vendor, i.e. the approved retailer, indicated in Art. 1. Macron S.p.A. shall not be responsible for the sales contract and its effective implementation, and shall not operate in any way as agent for the vendor. Only the vendor shall be responsible for selling the products and dealing with any potential disputes with the buyer.
ART.5 – OUR RESPONSIBILITY
