5. Information Aimed at Entering into the Agreement

 

In accordance with the Legislative Decree no. 70 of 9 April 2003 about electronic commerce, PAB SRL informs the user that:

1. to enter into the purchase agreement for one or more products on the Website, the user has to fill in an electronic form and forward it to PAB SRL by electronic means, operating the specific control where the payment is required, following the instructions appearing on the Website from time to time; 

2. the agreement is entered into once the order form reaches the server used by PAB SRL;

4. after registering the order form and receiving the confirmation of the validity of the payment method used, PAB SRL shall send to the e-mail address specified by the user the order confirmation. This shall contain: a summary of the general and specific conditions applicable to the agreement, the link to the general terms page, information about the essential features of the product purchased, detailed indication of the price, method of payment used, delivery charges, and possible additional costs as well as information on the right to withdraw;

5. the order form will be archived in PAB SRL’s database for as long as it takes to accomplish it and still according to the time limits laid down by law.

 

6. Product Availability

 

Any Product Sheet shall contain the information on the availability of each product. Product availability is constantly monitored and updated. However, since the Website can receive several visits at the same time, several users may purchase the same product at the same time. Therefore, in this case the product may appear available for a short time, although it is out of stock or not immediately available in waiting for the restock. In case the product appeared unavailable for the above stated reason or in any other case of unavailability, without prejudice to the rights granted to the user by law, PAB SRL shall immediately give the user e-mail notice. PAB SRL shall also offer the user:  

 -          in case product restock is possible, a deferment of the delivery to a new date;

 -          in case product restock is not possible, a choice for the user between:

 1. the termination of the purchase agreement and the subsequent restitution of the Total Amount Due, composed by product price, delivery charges, if applied, and any other additional cost, as per the order;

 2. the supply of a different product, having an equal or higher value, upon payment of the difference in the latter case and subject to user’s acceptance.

 The user shall promptly inform PAB SRL about his/her choice possible via e-mail, telephone or fax and contact details can be found on the Website.

 

In case the user chooses the relief in point 2 above, the purchase agreement concerning the product which has become unavailable will be terminated and the amount due redeemed. The user shall then place the order and make the payment for the different product, following the procedure described in these General Terms of Sale and according to the specific indications received from PAB SRL. In case the user chooses the relief in point 1 above but the new delivery date exceeds 20 days after the date of placing the order, due to the time requirement for restock, the purchase agreement concerning the product which has become unavailable will be terminated and the amount due redeemed.
In case of orders concerning several products, if only some of the products contained in the multiple order become unavailable, PAB SRL shall immediately give the user e-mail notice. PAB SRL shall also offer the user: (I) in case restock is possible for the products contained in the multiple order become unavailable, a deferment of the delivery to a new date; (II) in case product restock is not possible, a choice for the user between:

 1. the partial termination of the purchase agreement concerning the products contained in the multiple order become unavailable and the subsequent restitution of the amount due as regards those products, including delivery charges, costs of any additional delivery services and any other additional cost due regarding those specific products. The termination of the entire multiple order will be possible only in case the products contained in the multiple order become unavailable are proven evidently accessory compared to the other available products contained in the multiple order;

2. the supply of different products, having an equal or higher value, upon payment of the difference in the latter case and subject to user’s acceptance, in replacement of the products contained in the multiple order become unavailable.

 

The user shall promptly inform PAB SRL about his/her choice via e-mail, telephone or fax and contact details can be found on the Website.

In case the user chooses the relief in point 2 above, the purchase agreement concerning the product and/or products which have become unavailable will be partially terminated limited to that product/those products, and the amount due as regards those products will be redeemed. Redeeming times depend on the banking system and can reach the natural expiry date of the Authorization, which is 25 days after the date of confirmation of the Authorization. After communicating to the user’s credit card issuer the redeeming of the amount committed, under no circumstances the Selling Company will be held responsible for any damage caused by the delayed redeeming of the amount by the banking system. The user shall then place the order and make the payment for the different product or products, following the procedure described in these General Terms of Sale and according to the specific indications received from PAB SRL.

In case the user chooses the relief in point 1 above but the new delivery date exceeds 20 days after the date of placing the order, due to the time requirement for restock, the purchase agreement concerning the product and/or products which have become unavailable will be partially terminated limited to that product/those products, and the amount due by the user as regards those products will be redeemed. The user shall then place the order and make the payment for the restocked product or products, following the procedure described in these General Terms of Sale and according to the specific indications received from PAB SRL.

 

7. Product Information 

Each product comes with an information sheet illustrating its main features. The pictures and descriptions on the Website reproduce product features as accurately as possible. However, product colors may differ from the real ones due to the settings of the IT system or of the computers where users view them. Furthermore, the pictures of the product in the product sheet may differ in size or in relation to any additional products. Those pictures shall therefore be considered indicative and allowing the usual tolerance values. For the purposes of the purchase agreement, the product description in the order form sent to the user shall prevail.

 8. Prices

 All product prices published on the Website are in Euros and include VAT. 

PAB SRL reserves the right to change product prices at any time and without prior notice. Nonetheless, the user will be charged the price indicated on the Website at the time of placing the order and any increase or decrease subsequent to its transmission will not be considered. 

In case a product is offered on the Website at a discounted price, the product sheet shall specify (I) the full reference price on which the discount is calculated and (II) what this full reference price corresponds to. Be it understood that products will be offered at a discounted price only in case the full reference price corresponds to their actual market price. In the absence of any specification, the full reference price is the previous selling price of the product on the website. 

10. Purchase Orders 

PAB SRL will send the products only after receiving the confirmation of the payment authorization for the Total Amount Due. 

The purchase agreement is strictly dependent on the payment of the Total Amount Due. In case the payment authorization is not confirmed, the purchase contract will therefore be terminated ex officio. The user will receive notice trough the Website that the transaction was not successful and therefore the order was deleted.

Products ownership will be transferred to the purchaser at the time of shipping, i.e. of delivering them to the carrier. Conversely, the risk of loss or damage of the products will be transferred to the user when the user, or a third party designated by the same and different from the carrier, acquires physical possession of the products.

To be able to place a purchase order these GTS need to be read and approved, by ticking the specific checkbox in the pages of the purchase procedure. If the GTS are not accepted, no purchase can be made on the Website.

 

11. Payment Methods 

Payment for products purchased on the Website may be made by credit card, cash on delivery, Paypal and bank transfer. On-line payment is made through secure server (SSL 128 bit and protocols Verified by VISA and Mastercard SecureCode) managed by Keyclient to guarantee transaction safety. Cartasi, Visa and Eurocard/Mastercard credit cards are accepted. At the time of forwarding the purchase order, P.A.B. SRL makes a request to use the user’s credit card for the Total Amount Due indicated on the order form. If the requested authorization is confirmed, the sum corresponding to that amount is reserved and frozen, therefore being no more at disposal of the user. The user’s credit card will be actually debited for the Total Amount Due at the time of shipping the products. In case of multiple orders concerning products to be delivered separately, the user’s credit card will be actually debited at the time of shipping the last product.

Payment by bank transfer is made by selecting “bank transfer” among the payment methods. After our confirmation that all products ordered are available and of the total amount of the shipping, the bank transfer can be made at one’s own bank. The order number communicated at the time of purchase must be specified in the description of payment. The purchased products will be shipped as soon as the payment confirmation is received from the bank (the usual delay for reception of the bank transfer by the bank is 3 - 4 days). Sending the receipt by fax or e-mail speeds up the execution of the order. This method of payment entitles to receive a discount on delivery charges. The details of the bank account where to make the transfer are the following: Unicredit Udine CIN EU: 81 - CIN IT: S - ABI: 02008 - CAB: 12313 C/C: 000102340741 IBAN: IT 81 S 02008 12313 000102340741 Payee: PAB SRL.

If cash on delivery is chosen, the goods are paid for directly to the carrier by cash at the time of delivery.

To guarantee safe payments on the Website and prevent any fraud, PAB SRL reserves the right to ask the user via e-mail to send by the same means a duplex copy of his/her own valid identity document or, in case the order is headed to a different person, of this person’s valid identity document. The deadline to send the document to PAB SRL will be stated in the request e-mail but it will not exceed 5 working days after the reception of the request by the user. The user is compelled to send the requested documents within the deadline stated and, in the meanwhile, the order will be suspended.

In case PAB SRL does not receive the requested documents within the deadline stated or it receives expired or invalid documents, the contract will be terminated ex officio pursuant to and in accordance with Article 1456 of the Italian Civil Code and the order will therefore be deleted, notwithstanding PAB SRL’s right to compensation for any damage caused by the user’s incompliant behavior. The user will be notified by e-mail about the termination of the contract within 5 days after the deadline for sending the requested documents to the Selling Company. The termination of the contract will result in the deletion of the order and in the unfreezing of the Total Amount Due for which the authorization was requested.

In case PAB SRL receives valid documents within the deadline stated in the e-mail, the delivery terms applicable to the product will start to run from the date of their reception.
The purchaser guarantees that the information provided to PAB SRL are truthful. The information provided will be used to issue the invoice. No variation will be possible on the invoice after issuance.

 

12. Product Shipment 

The purchased products will be shipped and delivered to the delivery address specified by the purchaser. PAB SRL currently relies on express courier service by Bartolini BRT and GLS-Executive for small shipments, while for larger consignments Pallet-way services are used. After receiving the order, the Selling Company will notify the user the total delivery charges. After processing the order, the Selling Company will confirm shipment by e-mail within 1 - 2 working days; estimated delivery time is 3 - 4 working days (excluding therefore Saturdays, Sundays and holidays). At the delivery address there must be someone to receive the goods. Couriers do not generally notify delivery in advance by telephone.

The delivery charges due by a user concerning a specific order may vary depending on:

-          the shipping method chosen by the user, and/or 

-          product type and/or weight, and/or 

-          the purchase of several products with the same order, and/or

-          any offers and/or promotions applied to the order.

For private customers, the amount of the charges for the delivery to their domicile due by the user concerning a specific order will be specified explicitly and separately (in Euro and including VAT) during the purchase procedure, in the order summary and in any case before the user forwards the order, as well as in the order confirmation e-mail. All couriers tax shipments according to weight or to volume for goods with low weight but high volume. A 200 kg per cubic meter weight/volume ratio is established and the most favorable tariff is applied (e.g. 1 plastic fermenter 28 l weights about 2 kg but having a volume of 0.06 m3 it is taxed as if it weighted 12 kg).

 

Shipping Conditions Table rates

 

For professional customers, the amount of delivery charges due is specified in the order confirmation.
In the event of partial withdrawal from multiple orders, the amount of the delivery charges to be refunded to the user will be calculated subtracting, from the delivery charges incurred by the purchaser concerning the original order, the amount which would have been charged to the user if the original order had not contained the product interested by the user’s withdrawal. The amount of the delivery charges to be refunded to the user will therefore correspond to the difference between the delivery charges of the order and the delivery charges of the recalculated order. PAB SRL will apply this method of calculation in any other case of partial refund of delivery charges, notwithstanding the provisions regarding refunds caused by default by PAB SRL, as illustrated hereunder.

In any case, the amount of the delivery charges to be refunded shall not exceed the amount of the delivery charges actually paid by the user.

In the event of partial refund of delivery charges, due to default by PAB SRL concerning a multiple order, the amount of the delivery charges to be refunded to the user will be calculated subtracting, from the delivery charges incurred by the purchaser concerning the original order, the amount which would have been charged to the user if the original order had not contained the article interested by PAB SRL’s default.

The amount of the delivery charges to be refunded to the user will therefore correspond to the difference between the delivery charges of the order and the delivery charges of the recalculated order, being understood that the amount of the delivery charges to be refunded shall not exceed the amount of the delivery charges actually paid by the user.

Delivery is considered completed when the product is made available to the user at the delivery address specified to PAB SRL. Home delivery will be performed to street level, unless otherwise provided in the product sheet or unless the user explicitly asked for delivery to the floor.

The user acknowledges that he/she has a clear obligation to collect the product due to the purchase agreement. In the event of delivery failed because the addressee is absent from the address specified in the order form, the courier will leave in the post box a delivery attempt notice containing its contact number. The courier will make a second delivery attempt on the following day. After two failed delivery attempts, the courier will try to contact the customer by telephone. If this attempt fails as well, the shipment will be kept in storage by the courier. The user shall collect the shipment within eight calendar days starting from the second day after the date when the delivery attempt notice was left. In case the user does not collect the product within this deadline, the purchase contract will be terminated ex officio pursuant to and in accordance with Article 1456 of the Italian Civil Code. Within 15 working days after the termination of the contract, PAB SRL will therefore refund the Total Amount Due paid by the user, deducing the charges for the failed delivery of the product, the costs of any additional delivery services, if applicable, the storage charges, the charges for return to PAB SRL and any other cost incurred by the same due to the delivery failed because the addressee was absent. The amount of the refund will be notified to the user via e-mail and credited on the same method of payment used by the user for the purchase. After the second failed delivery attempt, notwithstanding the user’s obligation to collect the product within the deadline stated – otherwise the contract will be terminated – PAB SRL reserves the possibility to contact the user to invite him/her to collect the shipment before the deadline expires.

In case of multiple orders concerning products to be delivered separately, the procedure above will be applied to each delivery. Consequently, failed collection of the product within the deadline stated will not result in the termination of the whole contract but in partial termination of the same concerning only the uncollected product. Therefore, the amount which will be refunded to the user will not correspond to the Total Amount Due but only to the amount due concerning the uncollected product, deducing the charges for the failed delivery of the product, the storage charges, the charges for return to PAB SRL and any other cost incurred by the same due to the delivery failed because the addressee was absent.

It is the user’s duty to check the conditions of the product delivered. We recommend that the user checks the number of products received and that the packaging is intact, undamaged, not wet nor however altered, also in the sealing material (adhesive tape or metal strapping). We also invite the user, in his/her own interest, to specify any alterations on the carrier’s transport document, accepting the shipment with reservation. In fact, if the user accepts the products without reservation, he/she is not entitled to take legal action against the courier in case of lost or damaged products, unless they were lost or damaged by intentional misconduct or gross negligence of the same and except if partial loss or damage were not recognizable at the time of delivery. In the latter event, the damage must be reported as soon as it is known and within eight days after the collection. In case the packaging shows evidence of tampering or alteration, we also recommend that the user promptly informs PAB SRL. The application of the provisions on right to withdraw and legal guarantee of conformity remains in any case unprejudiced.

In case the purchased product is not delivered, or it is delivered later than the delivery terms specified during the purchase procedure and in the order confirmation, under the rule of Article 61 of the Consumer’s Code the user invites PAB SRL to perform the delivery within an additional period of time appropriate to the circumstances (“Additional Period of Time, Article 61, III paragraph, Consumer’s Code”). If the products are not delivered before the additional period of time expires, the user shall be entitled to terminate the contract (“Termination of the Contract, Article 61, III paragraph, Consumer’s Code”), without prejudice to further right for damages.

 

The consumer shall not be bound to grant PAB SRL the additional term referred to in Article 61, III paragraph, Consumer’s Code (“Cases Excluded”) if:

 a) PAB SRL has expressly refused to deliver the goods;

 b) delivery within the delivery terms specified during the purchase procedure and in the order confirmation is essential, taking into account all the circumstances attending the conclusion of the contract;

 c) the user informed PAB SRL, prior to the conclusion of the contract, that delivery within or on a specified date is essential.

In the cases excluded, if the user does not receive the products within the delivery terms specified during the purchase procedure and in the order confirmation, he/she shall be entitled to terminate the contract immediately without prejudice to further rights of damages (“Termination of the Contract in the Cases Excluded”).

The user shall communicate to PAB SRL the Additional Period of Time under the rule of Article 61, III paragraph, Consumer’s Code and the Termination of the Contract under the rule of Article 61, III paragraph, Consumer’s Code or Termination of the Contract in the Cases Excluded at the addresses indicated in these General Terms of Sale.

In case of Termination of the Contract under the rule of Article 61, III paragraph, Consumer’s Code or Termination of the Contract in the Cases Excluded, PAB SRL shall refund to the user the Total Amount Due without undue delay, according to the following procedure.

In case the user does not proceed to determine the additional term referred to in Article 61, III paragraph, Consumer’s Code or – the requirements being met – to Termination of the Contract under the rule of Article 61, III paragraph, Consumer’s Code or Termination of the Contract in the Cases Excluded, notwithstanding the user’s right to resort at any time to these remedies and/or to the ordinary means of redress made available by the law, and particularly by Chapter XIV of Title II of Book IV of the Italian Civil Code, in any case PAB SRL commits itself to:

(I) promptly inform the user via e-mail about the delivery delay (“Delivery Delay E-mail”), specifying at the same time a new delivery term, if available (“New Delivery Term”);

(II) in case of delivery delayed 1 to 3 working days after the new delivery term: grant the user a refund purchase voucher corresponding, in case of home delivery, to the value of the delivery charges paid by the user or, in case of delivery to a P.A.B. retail outlet, to the lump sum of 5 Euro;

(III) in case of delivery delayed 4 to 10 working days after the new delivery term: entitle the user to refuse the delivery and terminate the contract, with subsequent refund of the Total Amount Due paid, immediately or within 10 working days after the request to terminate the contract or, alternatively, if the user does not want to terminate the contract, grant the user a refund purchase voucher corresponding, in case of home delivery, to the value of the delivery charges paid by the user or, in case of delivery to a P.A.B. retail outlet, to the lump sum of 5 Euro, plus, irrespective of the user’s choice, a refund purchase voucher of 5 Euro;

(IV) in case of delivery delayed more than 10 days after the new delivery term or, in any case, more than 20 days after the original delivery term, offer the user the choice between: (a) terminating the contract with subsequent refund of the Total Amount Due paid, immediately or within 10 working days after the request to terminate the contract; or (b) accept the supply, according to the following procedure, of a different product having an equal or higher value, upon payment of the difference in the latter case and subject to user’s acceptance, granting the user – if applicable – a refund purchase voucher corresponding, in case of home delivery, to the difference between the delivery charges as per in the original order and the delivery charges paid by the user concerning the different product or, in case of delivery to a P.A.B. retail outlet, to the lump sum of 5 Euro, plus, irrespective of the user’s choice, a refund purchase voucher of 8 Euro.

In case of multiple orders concerning products to be delivered separately, the procedure illustrated above will be applied to each delivery. For each delivery and therefore limited to the products concerned, the user will be entitled to proceed to determine the Additional Period of Time under the rule of Article 61, III paragraph, Consumer’s Code or Termination of the Contract in the Cases Excluded, the requirements being met. In that case, PAB SRL shall refund to the user the partial amount due without undue delay, according to the following procedure.

In case the user, in the event of multiple orders, does not proceed to determine the additional term referred to in Article 61, III paragraph, Consumer’s Code or – the requirements being met – to Termination of the Contract under the rule of Article 61, III paragraph, Consumer’s Code or Termination of the Contract in the Cases Excluded, regarding the individual delivery and the products concerned, notwithstanding the user’s right to resort at any time to these remedies and/or to the ordinary means of redress made available by the law, and particularly by Chapter XIV of Title II of Book IV of the Italian Civil Code, PAB SRL commits itself to:

(I) promptly inform the user via e-mail about the delivery delay, specifying at the same time a new delivery term, if available;

(II) in case the delivery of one of the products concerned by the multiple order is delayed 1 to 3 working days after the new delivery term: grant the user a refund purchase voucher corresponding, in case of home delivery, to 5,90 Euro or, in case of delivery to a P.A.B. retail outlet, to the lump sum of 5 Euro;

The termination of the entire multiple order will be possible only in case the delayed or undelivered products contained in the multiple order are proven evidently accessory compared to the other products contained in the multiple order which were delivered promptly or are still to be delivered;

(IV) in case the delivery of one of the products concerned by the multiple order is delayed more than 10 working days after the new delivery term or, in any case, more than 20 days after the original delivery term, offer the user the choice between: (a) partially terminating the contract limited to and exclusively for the delayed product concerned by the multiple order with subsequent refund only of the amount due by the user concerning that specific product, including the delivery charges calculated as illustrated above, if due, immediately or within 10 working days after the request to partially terminate the contract; or (b) accept the supply, according to the following procedure, of a different product having an equal or higher value, upon payment of the difference in the latter case and subject to user’s acceptance, granting the user – if applicable – a refund purchase voucher corresponding, in case of home delivery, to the difference between the delivery charges as per the original order calculated as illustrated above and the delivery charges paid by the user concerning the different product or, in case of delivery to a P.A.B. retail outlet, to the lump sum of 5 Euro, plus, irrespective of the user’s choice, a refund purchase voucher of 8 Euro.

The purchase vouchers cited in the above paragraphs will be granted though activation of custom discount codes within 10 working days after the occurrence of the conditions for their issuance and they will be expendable on the Website within 5 months after their crediting.

The acceptance of the new delivery term shall be promptly notified to PAB SRL via e-mail at the address indicated in these General Terms of Sale. If the user chooses the supply of a different product, the purchase agreement concerning the delayed or undelivered product will be terminated and the total or partial amount due by the user concerning that product will be refunded. The user shall then place the order and make the payment for the different product, following the procedure described in these General Terms of Sale and according to the specific indications received from PAB SRL.

 

13. Right to Withdraw

For purchase on the Website exclusively, consumer users have the right to withdraw from the purchase agreement without undergoing a penalty, nor specifying the reason, nor having to bear any costs other than those stated hereunder, within the deadline of fourteen calendar days.

The withdrawal period shall start:

a) in case of an order concerning a single product, from the day when the user, or a third party designated by the same and different from the carrier, acquires physical possession of the products;

b) in case of a multiple order with separate deliveries, from the day when the user, or a third party designated by the same and different from the carrier, acquires physical possession of the last product;

c) in case of an order concerning the delivery of a product consisting in multiple batches or pieces, from the day when the user, or a third party designated by the same and different from the carrier, acquires physical possession of the last batch or piece.

To exercise the right to withdraw, the user shall inform PAB SRL about his/her decision to withdraw before the expiration of the withdrawal period. To this purpose the user can:

a) use the model withdrawal form (“Model Withdrawal Form”) at his/her disposal on the Website;

b) submit any other explicit statement of his/her decision to withdraw from the contract (“Withdrawal Statement”).

The user has exercised his/her right to withdrawal if the relative notice (i.e. the Model Withdrawal Form or the Withdrawal Statement) is sent by the consumer before the expiration of the withdrawal period. In case the user resorts to the Withdrawal Statement, he/she is invited to specify in the Withdrawal Statement the order number, the product/s for which he/she intends to exercise the right to withdraw and his/her address. Except if the Model Withdrawal Form is submitted through the on-line procedure described hereunder, the Model Withdrawal Form and the Withdrawal Statement must be sent to the following address:

 

PAB Srl

Via M. Moretti,

33037 - Pasian di Prato (UD)

Since the burden of proof regarding the exercise of the right to withdraw before the expiration of the withdrawal period lies with the user, it is in the interests of the user to resort to a durable means in notifying his/her withdrawal to PAB SRL.

PAB SRL offers the user the opportunity to fill in and submit the Model Withdrawal Form by electronic means, following the guided procedure available on the Website. In this case, PAB SRL shall promptly send the user via e-mail an acknowledgment of receipt of the Model Withdrawal Form. PAB SRL shall then send the user the transport document, which the user is suggested to place inside the parcel while returning the product.

The user shall return the products to PAB SRL using a carrier of his/her choice and at his/her own expense, without undue delay and in any case within the deadline of 14 calendar days after the date when he/she notified to PAB SRL his/her decision to withdraw (“Time Limit for Return”). The Time Limit for Return is met if the user resends the products before the expiration of the fourteen days period. The product must be returned adequately protected and packaged and, if possible, in its original packaging (the original packaging is always and compulsorily requested if it has the product serial codes printed on it, as further illustrated in Article hereunder) to the following address:

 

PAB Srl 

Via M. Moretti,

The costs for return of the products and the liability for transport are borne by the user.

Alternatively to the above procedures for exercising the right to withdraw and to return products, the user having collected the product concerning which he/she wants to withdraw at a P.A.B. retail outlet can return it to the retail outlet within the Time Limit for Return, after withdrawing within the deadline.

If the user withdraws form the agreement, PAB SRL will refund the Total Amount Due paid by the user for the product, without undue delay and in any case within the deadline of 14 calendar days after the date when he/she notified to PAB SRL his/her decision to withdraw. The refund will be made through the same method of payment used by the user for the purchase and the user will in any case bear no cost as a consequence of the refund.

The consumer shall only be liable for any diminished value of the goods resulting from the handling other than what is necessary to ascertain the nature and functioning of the goods. The product shall however be stored, handled and inspected with due diligence and returned intact, complete in all its parts, perfectly working, accompanied by all accessories and information sheets, with the identifying tickets, labels and disposable seal, if present, still attached to the product and intact and not tampered with, as well as perfectly suitable for the use for which it was intended and lacking signs of use or dirt. Furthermore, withdrawal is applied to the whole product and it cannot be exercised in respect of parts and/or accessories of the product.

In case the value of the product interested by the user’s withdrawal has diminished resulting from the handling other than what is necessary to ascertain the nature and functioning of the goods, the refund may be reduced by an amount corresponding to the value diminution. PAB SRL shall inform the user about this situation and the subsequent reduction of the refund within 5 working days after product receipt; in case the refund has already been made, the user will also receive the banking details to reimburse the amount due concerning the product value diminution.

If withdrawal was not exercised in accordance with the applicable law, it will not result in the termination of the agreement and therefore it will not entitle the user to any refund. PAB SRL shall inform the user about this circumstance within 5 working days after product receipt, rejecting the request of withdrawal. The product will remain at PAB SRL’s premises at the user’s disposal to be collected at the expenses and under the responsibility of the same.

 

There shall not be any right of withdrawal in respect of distance and off-premises contracts as regards the following cases prescribed by law:

a) service agreements after the service has been fully performed, if the performance has begun with the consumer’s prior express consent and with the acknowledgement that he/she will lose his right to withdraw once the agreement has been fully performed by the trader;

b) the supply of goods or services for which the price is dependent on fluctuations in the financial market which cannot be controlled by the trader and which may occur within the withdrawal period;

c) the supply of goods made to the consumer’s specifications or clearly personalized. The present case shall also include the milling service performed on customer’s request on malt grains purchased separately or as part of All Grain Beer Kits and E + G Beer Kits;

d) the supply of goods which are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly;

e) the supply of sealed goods which are not suitable for return due to health protection or hygiene reasons and were unsealed after delivery;

f) the supply of goods which after delivery are, according to their nature, inseparably mixed with other items;

g) the supply of alcoholic beverages, whose price has been agreed upon at the time of the conclusion of the sales contract, whose delivery can only take place after 30 days and whose actual value is dependent on fluctuations in the market which cannot be controlled by the trader;

h) contracts where the consumer has specifically requested a visit by the trader for the purpose of carrying out urgent repairs or maintenance. If, on the occasion of such visit, the trader provides services in addition to those specifically requested by the consumer or goods other than replacement parts necessarily used in carrying out the maintenance or in making the repairs, the right of withdrawal shall apply to those additional services or goods;

i) the supply of sealed audio or sealed video recordings or sealed computer software which were unsealed after delivery;

l) the supply of a newspaper, periodical or magazine with the exception of subscription agreements for the supply of such publications;

m) contracts concluded at a public auction;

n) the provision of accommodation other than for residential purpose, transport of goods, car rental services, catering or services related to leisure activities if the contract provides for a specific date or period of performance;

o) the supply of digital content which is not supplied on a tangible medium, if the performance has begun with the consumer’s prior express consent and his acknowledgment that he thereby loses his right of withdrawal.

 

14. Legal Guarantee of Conformity

 

All products sold on the Website are covered by legal guarantee of conformity under the rule of Articles 128-135 of the Legislative Decree no. 206 of 6 September 2005 (“Consumers’ Code”) (“Legal Guarantee”).

The Legal Guarantee is reserved to consumers. It is therefore applied only to users having made a purchase on the Website for purposes which are outside his/her trade, business, craft or profession. For the purposes of the Legal Guarantee, any user making a purchase with VAT registration number is considered not to be a consumer. Therefore, the Legal Guarantee will not be applied to users making a purchase with VAT registration number, but the guarantees against defects of the good sold, the guarantee against failure of the promised or essential qualities and the other guarantees envisaged in the Italian Civil Code are applied, with the relative deadlines, forfeitures and limitations.

 

As seller for purchases made on the Website, PAB SRL shall be liable to the consumer for any lack of conformity existing at the time the goods were delivered and arising within two years after such delivery. Any lack of conformity shall be reported to the seller within two months after the date it was discovered, under penalty of forfeiture of the guarantee. Until proven otherwise, lacks of conformity arising within six months after product delivery are presumed to have already been in existence on that date, unless this hypothesis is incompatible with the nature of the product or of the lack of conformity. From the seventh month after product delivery, on the contrary, the burden of proof regarding the existence of the lack of conformity at product delivery shall lie with the consumer. To benefit from the Legal Guarantee the user shall therefore provide evidence of the purchase and delivery dates. To this purpose, the user should then keep the order confirmation or the purchase invoice, if requested, or the transport document or any other document testifying the date of purchase (e.g. a credit card or bank account statement) and delivery.

 

There is lack of conformity when the purchased good:

1. is not adequate for the customary use of goods of the same kind;

2. is not compliant with the description made by the seller and does not have the qualities of the good which the seller showed to the consumer as a sample or model;

3. does not have the usual qualities and performances of goods of the same kind, which the consumer can reasonably expect, also considering what is stated in advertisement or labels;

4. is not adequate for the specific use wanted by the consumer, disclosed to the seller at the time of closing of the agreement and accepted by the seller.

Therefore, the scope of application of the Legal Guarantee does not include any defects or malfunctions caused by accidents or due to user’s fault or because the product was not used in accordance with its intended use and/or the technical documentation attached to the product. 

 

In case the user duly reports lacks of conformity within the deadline, he/she will have right to:

- firstly, free reparation or replacement of the good, at the user’s choice, unless the relief required is objectively impossible or excessively onerous compared to the other;

- secondly (in case reparation or replacement is impossible or excessively onerous or in case reparation or replacement is not performed within reasonable time or in case reparation or replacement already performed have caused significant inconvenience to the consumer) reduction of the price or termination of the contract, at the user’s choice.

The relief required is excessively onerous if it imposes on the seller unreasonable expenses compared to the alternative reliefs which can be performed, considering (I) the value which the good would have if there was no lack of conformity; (II) the importance of the lack of conformity; (III) the possibility to perform the alternative relief without any significant inconvenience for the consumer.

In case the product purchased on the Website shows a possible lack of conformity during the validity period of the Legal Guarantee, the user can contact PAB SRL’s Customer Service and contact details can be found on the Website. In both cases, PAB SRL shall promptly acknowledge receipt of the communication regarding the supposed lack of conformity and suggest to the user the specific procedure to follow, considering the product category and/or the defect reported.

In case for the product there is a producer’s Authorized Service Centre (“ASC”), the Selling Company shall collect the product and send it to the ASC competent for the territory concerned. Alternatively, if the product concerned by the supposed lack of conformity was collected at a P.A.B. retail outlet, the user will have the opportunity of taking said product to the P.A.B. retail outlet for the subsequent shipping to the ASC. The P.A.B. retail outlet shall issue a receipt of product take-over for the user. In any case PAB SRL is in charge of the application of the Legal Guarantee.

The ASC will make all necessary checks to ascertain the existence of lack of conformity reported. In case it exists, if the user chose reparation among the available reliefs, the ASC will perform it. On the other hand, if the user chose replacement and this is not excessively onerous nor objectively impossible for PAB SRL, PAB SRL will perform it. In case the ASC ascertains the lack of conformity exists, any expenses for reparation, replacement and transport will be borne by PAB SRL. In case the ASC ascertains the lack of conformity does not exist, the Legal Guarantee will not be applicable, therefore any expenses for reparation and transport will be borne by the user. PAB SRL shall inform the user about this circumstance and about any cost to be borne and reserves the possibility to send to the user the estimate given by the ASC for the reparation, in order for the user to be able to decide whether to perform it or not at his/her expenses. The user shall authorize the reparation and accept its costs and payment methods in writing. After his/her acceptance, a direct relationship between the user and the ASC will be established and PAB SRL shall have no participation nor liability in it.

Reparation or replacement of defective products, if due, will be performed within the shortest possible delay and in any case, except for unforeseeable circumstances or force majeure or in particularly serious events, within 60 calendar days after the day when the defective product was received by PAB SRL or its outlet store. The user will receive the new or repaired product within this deadline. If he/she exercised the Legal Guarantee, delivering the product to the outlet store, the user will be able to collect the repaired or replaced product at the same outlet store. For collection, the user shall produce a copy of the receipt of product take-over and his/her identity document. If the user is not able to collect the product in person, he/she may delegate a third party in writing. The delegate shall produce his/her identity document, the delegation, a copy of the receipt of product take-over and the identity document of the delegating user. In case the relief (reparation or replacement) originally chosen by the user is not performed within the specified deadline, the user is entitled to require another alternative relief envisaged by the Legal Guarantee (replacement, if reparation had been chosen; reparation, if replacement had been chosen; reduction of the price or termination of the contract).

In case for the type of product concerned there exists no ASC, the product will be collected by PAB SRL, which will check the product to ascertain the existence of the lack of conformity reported. In this case the provisions and deadlines as per the first and second paragraph of the present article shall apply, to the extent compatible.

In any case the user having exercised the Legal Guarantee of Conformity must collect the repaired or replaced product at an outlet store, the user shall produce a copy of the receipt of product take-over and his/her identity document. If the user is not able to collect the product in person, he/she may delegate a third party in writing. The delegate shall produce his/her identity document, the delegation, a copy of the receipt of product take-over and the identity document of the delegating user.

 15. Conventional Manufacturer’s Guarantee

The products sold on the Website may be covered by a conventional guarantee by the manufacturer (“Conventional Guarantee”), depending on their nature. The user can exercise said guarantee only in respect of the manufacturer. The duration, extension, also territorially, the conditions and the procedure to exercise it, the types of damages/defects covered and any limitations of the Conventional Guarantee depend on each manufacturer and are specified in the so-called guarantee certificate contained inside the product packaging.

The Conventional Guarantee is voluntary in nature and it is not added to, nor it replaces, limits, compromises or excludes the Legal Guarantee.

16. Applicable Law

The purchase agreement concluded on the Website is governed by Italian law. To consumer users who do not habitually reside in Italy any mandatory more favorable provisions under the law of the country where they habitually reside may apply, particularly concerning the deadline to exercise the right to withdraw, the deadline to return products in case of withdrawal, the procedure and formalities to notify the same and the Legal Guarantee of Conformity. In case of a consumer user, the court of the place where the user is resident or domiciled shall be the venue for all controversies related to application, performance and interpretation of the present General Terms of Sale. For all controversies related to application, performance and interpretation of the present General Terms of Sale, the user residing in a European Union member State different from Italy may also access to the European procedure established for small claims by Council Regulation (EC) no. 861/2007 of 11 July 2007, provided that the value of the claim does not exceed 2,000.00 Euro, excluding interests, commissions and charges. The text of the Regulation can be found on the website www.eur-lex.europa.eu.
