1. CONCLUSION OF THE SALES CONTRACT
These general conditions of sale are an integral and essential part of the sales contract concluded with the customer. The order sent via the web by the customer implies the full knowledge of these General Conditions of Sale as well as their full acceptance. If the customer does not agree with one or more terms of these General Conditions of Sale, he/she shall abstain from making purchases on www.twinset.com (the "Website").
To proceed with the purchase of one or more products on the Website, the customer shall first of all register on the Website, in compliance with the applicable provisions concerning the protection of personal data, providing TWINSET with all the data required to allow the latter to process the orders received.
To conclude the purchase contract with TWINSET, the customer shall send TWINSET his/her order in compliance with the procedure referred to on the Website. By sending the order via the web, the customer undertakes to pay the price indicated therein.
When the customer places an order, he/she will receive an e-mail from TWINSET containing the order confirmation and a summary of the order: the e-mail shall in any case not constitute the automatic acceptance of the order.
TWINSET reserves the right to refuse orders from customers with which there is an outstanding dispute about payment for a previous order.
2. SALES PRICES
All the prices of the products displayed and indicated on the Website are inclusive of VAT and all other applicable sales taxes.
Where foreseen, the cost of shipping and transport will be clearly indicated and displayed prior to completing the order.
The prices of the products may be updated. The customer undertakes to ascertain the final sales price prior to submitting the order. For any obvious material errors concerning the prices published on the Website compared to the commonly known price of the chosen product, TWINSET shall have the right to not confirm the shipment and to proceed to immediately refund the amount paid by the customer without the customer raising any objections thereto.
3. METHODS OF DELIVERY
TWINSET will do everything in its power to process the orders within 7 working days and in any case no later than 30 days from the day following that on which the customer submitted the order.
The customer shall, on receipt, check the conformity of the goods delivered with the order placed; only after having checked the goods, and without prejudice to the right of withdrawal laid down in point 7 below, the customer shall sign the delivery receipt. In completing the personal detail sheet in the registration procedures, required for the execution of this contract and all relative correspondence, the customer authorizes TWINSET to notify his/her personal data (address, phone number) to the couriers and/or shipping companies used to deliver the purchased goods, in order to allow their delivery.
4. PAYMENT METHODS
To pay the price of the goods and relative shipping and delivery charges, where foreseen, the customer may use one of the methods indicated in the order form. Under no circumstances will the customer be charged additional costs for the chosen method of payment.
In the event of payment by credit card, the payment procedure takes place via a protected connection directly to the bank and the on-line payment service, to which TWINSET has no access. In particular, the financial information (such as, for example, the credit/debit card number or its expiry date) will be submitted, using a cyphered protocol, to Banca Sella or to other banks that supply the relative remote electronic payment services, without third parties being able to access them in any way. Furthermore, this information will never be used by TWINSET for purposes other than completing the relative purchase procedures and to issue the required reimbursements in the event of product restitutions, following the exercise of withdrawal rights, or if it is necessary to prevent or report to the police any fraudulent acts perpetrated on the Website.
The amount of the order will be charged at the time of the bank transaction, clearly without prejudice to the customer's right to be refunded the amount in the event of breach by the Vendor or non-performance of the contract for any reason whatsoever.
The customer is solely responsible for all data provided, and guarantees the use of credit cards of which only he/she is an authorized user.
If the customer has a credit card with PayPal activation, he/she can save an identification code here, which will avoid having to enter the details for future payments. In this case, the data provided will be collected by TWINSET in encrypted form and transmitted to PayPal.
TWINSET shall not be liable for any disservice caused by force majeure, including but not limited to accidents, explosions, fires, strikes and/or lockouts, earthquakes, flooding or similar events which wholly or partly impede the performance of the contract within the agreed time.
TWINSET shall not be liable to any party or third parties concerning damage, losses or costs incurred due to the non-performance of the contract for the above-listed reasons, and the customer shall have the right to receive only the refund of the price paid.
Equally, TWINSET shall not be liable for the fraudulent or unlawful use by third parties of credit cards, checks or other means of payment used to pay for the purchased products. TWINSET does not have access to the customer's credit card number at any time in the purchasing procedure, as the number is transmitted directly to the manager of the banking services.
The essential characteristics of the products are presented on the Website in each product data sheet. The images and colors of the products on sale may however vary, due to the effect of the Internet browser and/or monitor used.

7. RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL OR REFUND
The customer may exercise the right of withdrawal and return the goods received, without any penalties and without having to specify the reason, in compliance with the terms and methods indicated below.
The customer may request to return goods directly on the Website, by accessing his/her own account and completing and submitting to TWINSET the returns form, following the procedure laid down therein - i.e. by submitting an explicit declaration of his/her decision to withdraw from the contract - within fourteen (14) days from the date of receipt of the goods.
Goods must be returned intact, unwashed, undamaged and bearing their bar-code labels and any other seals that are part of them; it is not possible to reimburse customers for goods that are returned incomplete, ruined, damaged, showing signs of wear or dirty.
The goods the customer wishes to return must be delivered to the shipping agent within fourteen (14) days, starting from the date on which the customer notifies the Vendor of his/her decision to withdraw from the contract.
The cost of returning the goods shall be borne by TWINSET on condition that the customer uses the preprinted adhesive label found inside the package. This procedure enables TWINSET to pay the courier directly for the return costs and to track the location of the package at any time. If on the other hand the customer decides to return the goods using a different shipping agent, he/she shall bear the costs of shipment, including any liability in the event of loss or damage to the goods.
On return of the goods, the Vendor shall check their conformity with the terms and conditions laid down in this paragraph.
If the right of withdrawal is exercised in the methods and terms indicated in this paragraph, TWINSET shall refund the customer any amounts received for the purchase of the goods.
Whatever methods of payment used by the customer, the Vendor shall arrange for the refund in the shortest possible time and in any case within fourteen (14) days from the date on which the Vendor was informed of the exercise of the right of withdrawal, having checked the conformity of the withdrawal procedure and the returned goods.
The Vendor generally refunds the amounts using the same method of payment used by the customer when purchasing the goods. If a virtual credit card was used, or the credit card has expired or is about to expire, the customer may e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
to agree the most appropriate repayment method.
