The resale or transfer of products purchased on the Site for any commercial or professional purposes is expressly prohibited.
1.2 The contract entered into between Massimo Alba (hereinafter also referred to as the "Seller") and the Customer shall be deemed concluded upon the acceptance, even partial, of the order by Massimo Alba.

2.2 It is understood that the images accompanying the description of a product are for informational purposes only and may not perfectly represent its characteristics, including differences in color and size (due to technical specifications and color resolution of the browser and monitor used to access the Site and view the images). Therefore, Massimo Alba shall not be liable for any potential inadequacy of the graphical representations of the Products shown on the Site.
2.3 To place an Order, the Customer must complete the relative form on the Site in its entirety and submit it following the instructions provided on the Site, after having carefully read and accept the Terms, the characteristics of the product(s) intended for purchase, the price (including all applicable taxes or fees), and the shipping costs (including any additional costs incurred for choosing a different or expedited shipping and delivery method than the standard option). The purchasing process is concluded when the Customer selects the appropriate order submission button, thereby confirming their Order Proposal, which will be sent directly to Massimo Alba. After the Order is submitted, the content of the Order Proposal can no longer be modified by the Customer. The purchasing process must be completed in its entirety, and if it is not, the Order Proposal cannot be submitted to Massimo Alba. The Customer may also request the issuance of a fiscal invoice for the purchase, if desired. Massimo Alba reserves the right to modify, at any time, the limits on the quantities of Products that can be purchased through the Site.
2.4 The correct receipt of the Order is confirmed by Massimo Alba through an e-mail sent to the e-mail address provided by the Customer. That confirmation message will briefly restate the purchase conditions as required by applicable regulations, as well as the data entered in the Order by the Customer, so that they can review them and promptly communicate any necessary corrections of incorrect data. The confirmation of receipt of the order does not imply acceptance of the order by Massimo Alba. The acceptance of the order will occur as described in paragraph 2.5 below.
2.5 If the ordered Product is available, Massimo Alba will send the customer an e-mail acceptance of the order and conclusion of the contract. The message will also include a copy of these Terms of Sale and the indications of the purchased Products, the purchase price, and the delivery times and costs.

2.6 If, on the other hand, the Product is not available, Massimo Alba will promptly notify the Customer, and in the event that the price has already been paid, will cancel the order and promptly refund the full amount to the Customer, within a maximum of 10 (ten) business days. In the event of only partial availability, the Customer will be promptly informed by Massimo Alba. Consequently, the Customer agrees to receive only the Products available, unless they have selected the option on the Site to receive the entire order. In that case, the Customer will be asked whether they prefer to receive the available Products, with only the corresponding amount being charged, or to proceed with the total cancellation of the order.
2.7 In the event of an incorrect indication of the Product price on the Site, Massimo Alba will promptly inform the Customer of the error via e-mail, and the Customer may decide whether to proceed with the purchase or not. If the Customer chooses to cancel the order, Massimo Alba will promptly refund any amount already paid by the Customer, within a maximum of 10 (ten) business days.

3.3 In no event and at no stage of the credit card payment process, will Massimo Alba be able to access the Customer's credit card information transmitted through a secure connection directly to the site of the banking institution handling the transaction. No Massimo Alba computer archive will retain such data, and therefore Massimo Alba cannot be held liable for any fraudulent and improper use of credit cards by third parties during the payment process..
3.4 The price of the Products is subject to updates, and therefore, before submitting the purchase order, the Customer must verify the final selling price of the Product to which the purchase order refers.

To this end, before submitting the purchase order, a summary will be provided of the final price of each selected product, the total amount in the case of purchasing multiple products, applicable taxes, and related shipping and delivery charges.

If the products are not picked up within the specified timeframe, the purchase contract will be automatically terminated, and the price will be refunded to the Customer. It will not be possible to make payment at the point of sale, therefore cash on delivery is not available.
4.4 The delivery times indicated by Massimo Alba should be considered purely indicative and non-essential. A delay in delivery or any subsequent partial shipments shall not give the Customer the right to refuse the delivery or claim compensation. The Customer may request that Massimo Alba make the delivery within a reasonable additional period appropriate for the circumstances, in accordance with applicable regulations. However, the Customer reserves the right to immediately terminate the contract if the ordered Product is not delivered within the additional period, if specified, and to obtain a prompt refund of all amounts paid under the contract, as well as compensation for damages.
