The Customer will have the option not to accept them by canceling the order. Delivery times are given in the form of a minimum-maximum delivery date.
4.5. Products may be available in limited quantity and time duration. Customers are always encouraged to check the availability indicated next to the Product.

5. The figure of the Seller
5.1. The Products are sold by the Producer. G&P acts as a mere supplier of the e-commerce platform, disclaiming any responsibility in the commercial relationship that exists between Customer and Producer. Therefore, the Producer will be solely responsible for the sale of the Products, delivery, and handling of returns, withdrawals, and disputes with the buyer.

6. Purchase procedure and order transmission
6.1. The Customer may proceed with the purchase of the Products through an action by clicking on the “add to cart” button.

6.2. During the order procedure, the Customer will have the opportunity to enter his, her or their personal data, shipping address, possible alternate recipient, billing details, and credit card or PayPal information. At the end of the compilation, the Customer can check and modify the data entered. Once the data has been verified, the Customer will finally be able to validate and transmit the order (the “Purchase Order“) through a confirmation click on the “Buy” button.
6.3. The Purchase Order is considered as a contractual proposal of purchase by the Customer for the individual items included in the Purchase Order. Acceptance of the Purchase Order will be attested by an automatic “order confirmation” email in the case of payment by Paypal or credit card. The above automatic emails do not constitute acceptance of the purchase proposal, which will be finalized only after verification of the data and availability of the Products. The purchase contract will be considered finalized only when the purchased Product appears “in process” in the “Orders” reserved area available on the Site.
Products from different Manufacturers may be placed in the same “shopping cart”. Each Product will be shipped to the Customer by the Manufacturer.

6.7. If, due to platform errors or other inconveniences, the price listed on the Site is lower than the actual sale price of the Product as determined by G&P, G&P will contact the Customer to verify if he/her/they wish to proceed with the purchase at the corrected price. In the event of a negative response, the order will be canceled, and a refund will be issued within 14 calendar days using the payment method selected by the Customer at the time of the order.

7. Shipments: delivery of goods
7.1. Deliveries are made to the postal address provided by the Customer during the purchase process. The Customer is responsible for the address provided. No liability will be attributable to third parties for errors in the shipment or wrong delivery of products due to inaccuracies or incompleteness in the completion by the Customer of the Purchase Order.
7.2. Delivery times are approximate and are given on the Site in the form of a date range (minimum date/maximum date), taking into account the product production time and the time required to ship the goods. Following the processing of the Purchase Order with details on the place of delivery and method of payment, the Site will refine the calculation of delivery times in real-time. Deliveries are made by the shipper deemed most appropriate for the type of goods and shipping area. Indicatively, shipping times range from 10 – 12 days.
In case of payment by Bank Transfer, G&P will take charge of the order only after verification of the crediting of the payment. Therefore, the delivery time indicated in the Order Summary email will be added to the waiting time for the credit.
7.3. Customer acknowledges and agrees that a Purchase Order that includes multiple Products sold and shipped by different Manufacturers will result in the initiation of separate delivery procedures and, therefore, different delivery times for each Product and separate shipping costs. Customers are encouraged to always check the estimated shipping and delivery times for each Product as indicated on the Site next to the stated availability of the Product.
7.4. Delivery of each of the Products purchased is the sole responsibility of the Manufacturers.
7.5. In the event of defects immediately noticeable upon delivery, such as the number of packages not corresponding to the order or damaged packaging, the Customer is required to make an immediate report in writing through the Site within 3 (three) business days from the date of delivery.
7.6. The product file on the Site will contain a notice that if the Shipping Nation and the Customer’s Nation do not coincide with the Manufacturer’s Nation, additional customs duties may apply upon delivery. Customs policies vary considerably from nation to nation; to this end, the Customer is encouraged to contact the customs office in his or her country to verify any incidental taxes.
7.7. No liability can be charged for shipment delays or inability to deliver due to scheduled national or local holidays, strikes, riots, natural disasters, carrier accidents, theft, or robbery. If force majeure persists beyond a period of 3 (three) months, the order will be automatically canceled.
7.8. Any delays in delivery of less than 30 (thirty) days do not entitle the Customer to refuse delivery of the products nor to claim compensation or indemnity of any kind. In the event that it is not possible to communicate to the Customer a reliable delivery date, it will be the right of G&P to propose to the Customer the cancellation of the order at no additional cost and with an immediate refund through the means of payment chosen by the Customer at the time of the order.

8. Right of withdrawal

8.7. If the Customer has exercised the Right of Withdrawal in accordance with the provisions of these conditions, G&P, in accordance with Article 56, paragraph 1 of the Consumer Code, will fully refund the sums paid by the Customer at the time of purchase, including shipping costs. The refund of the sums will be made through the same instrument adopted by the Customer at the payment stage, without undue delay, and in any case within 14 (fourteen) days from the day on which it is informed of the consumer’s decision to withdraw from the contract pursuant to Article 54.
