In relation to the tangible Products, the warranties for defects of the thing sold, the warranty for defect of promised and essential qualities and the other warranties provided for by the Civil Code with their terms, forfeitures and limitations (art. 1490 et seq. c.c.) will be applied to non-consumer Users.
The legal guarantee of conformity, provided for in Articles 128-135 of the Consumer Code, is recognized for all Products sold through the Application that fall under the category of “consumer goods,” as governed by Art. 128, 2nd paragraph of the Consumer Code: any movable goods, including those to be assembled, except (i) property subject to forced sale or otherwise sold in other ways by judicial authorities, including by delegation to notaries, (ii) water and gas, when not packaged for sale in a delimited volume or specified quantity, (iii) electricity.
The legal guarantee of conformity is reserved for Consumer Users only.
The Owner has the obligation to deliver to the User Consumer Products in accordance with the sales contract. The Products are presumed to be in conformity with the contract if, where relevant, the following circumstances coexist:
Therefore, any failures or malfunctions caused by accidental events or by the responsibility of the Consumer User or by use of the Product not in accordance with its intended use and/or with the provisions of the attached technical documentation are excluded from the scope of the conformity warranty.
A conformity defect that becomes apparent within 24 months from the date of delivery of the Product must be reported within 2 months after the date of discovery of the defect.
Unless proven otherwise, defects of conformity arising within 6 months after delivery of the Product shall be presumed to have existed on that date, unless such a presumption is inconsistent with the nature of the Product or the nature of the defect of conformity. After the 6 months, it will be up to the Consumer User to provide proof that the damage did not originate from misuse or improper use of the Product.
Pursuant to Art. 130 of the Consumer Code, in the event of a lack of conformity of the Product, the Consumer User has the right to restore the conformity of the Product, without charge. To this end, the User Consumer may choose between repairing the Product or replacing it.
This right of choice may not be exercised if the remedy sought is objectively impossible or unduly burdensome. In addition, the Consumer User is entitled to an appropriate price reduction or termination of the contract only if one of the following situations occurs: (i) repair and replacement are impossible or excessively expensive; (ii) the Holder has failed to repair or replace within a reasonable period of time; (iii) the replacement or repair caused significant inconvenience to the User Consumer.
If the User Consumer wishes to take advantage of the remedies under the conformity warranty, he or she should send written notice to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling customer service at 3338088396.
The Holder will promptly acknowledge the communication of the alleged conformity defect and indicate to the Consumer User the specific procedure to be followed, also taking into account the product category to which the Product belongs and/or the reported defect.

In no event shall the Owner be liable for more than twice the amount of the cost paid by the User.
The Holder shall not be held liable for failure or delay in the performance of its obligations due to circumstances beyond the reasonable control of the Holder due to force majeure events or, otherwise, to unforeseen and unforeseeable events and, in any case, beyond its control.
The Holder’s performance of obligations will be considered suspended for the period during which force majeure events occur.
The Holder will take any action in its power in order to find solutions that will allow the proper fulfillment of its obligations despite the persistence of force majeure events.
The Application may contain links to third-party sites/applications. The Owner exercises no control over them and, therefore, is in no way responsible for the contents of these sites/applications.
