1. Acceptance of the general conditions of sale and conclusion of the contract
1.1 The contract made between FiloBlu S.p.a. (hereinafter "FiloBlu") and the Customer (meaning the party, a natural person, that makes a purchase on the Site unrelated to their commercial, business, or professional activity) is to be understood as having been concluded when the order is accepted, even if only partially, by FiloBlu. Where the order is not accepted, FiloBlu shall in any case give timely notice of this to the Customer.
1.2 By placing the order according to the various procedures indicated, as in the order form present on the Site (hereinafter "Order"), the Customer declares that they have taken note of the information given to them during the purchasing procedure and that they fully accept these general conditions (hereinafter the "Conditions").
1.3 These Conditions may be printed or saved on a durable medium having regard for the provisions of article 12 of Legislative Decree no. 70/2003 and of article 51 of Legislative Decree 206/2005, as amended by Legislative Decree 21/2014.
2. Purchasing procedures
2.1 The products offered for sale by FiloBlu shall be solely those on the FiloBlu Site at the time the Order is submitted, as described in the respective information sheets.
2.2 However that may be, the images that accompany a product information sheet are solely for information purposes and may not be perfectly representative of the product’s characteristics but differ, for example, in colour and size (one reason being the browser and the monitor used to access the Site as well as the display of the images).
2.3 To place their Orders Customers must fill out the respective form on the Site in its entirety and send it after having carefully read the Conditions, as well as the characteristics of the product and/or products they intend to purchase. Customers must likewise apply to FiloBlu, if they so wish, for the issue of an invoice for the purchase, in accordance with article 22 of Presidential Decree no. 633/1972.
2.4 Proper reception of the Order is confirmed by FiloBlu in an e-mail reply, sent to the e-mail address notified by the Customer. This confirmation message shall summarise the conditions of purchase, as provided by the applicable legislation, as well as the data included in the Order by the Customer, so that he/she can check them and, as the case may be, immediately notify the necessary corrections to the incorrect data.

Said data shall not be held in any data store of FiloBlu and, accordingly, in no case may FiloBlu be held responsible for any fraudulent or improper misuse of credit cards by third parties when payment is made.
