- INFORMATION FOR THE CONSUMER
- Use of the distance selling service described in these general conditions is reserved to consumers only, meaning individuals acting for purposes not connected to any business, entrepreneurial or professional activity carried on (“Customers”).

- ORDERING AND ACCEPTANCE PROCEDURE
- To purchase one or more Products, you must select the items in the colour and size you are interested in. The Products selected for purchase will be added to the Shopping Cart. To be able to keep the articles in the Cart to enable continuation of shopping afterwards, you must first create an online account and log into that account before making the purchase. It is possible to make a purchase even without signing in or creating an account by following the steps and instructions given on the Site, but items left in the Cart will no longer be there if the purchase is not completed in the same session. This way you will have to start another shopping procedure when you come back to this Site.
- Any information you enter during the shopping procedure can be changed up until confirmation of the order. Once an order has been confirmed and submitted it is no longer possible for you to change or undo it.
- After the order is submitted Alevì S.r.l. will send you an email message to confirm receipt of your order. Customers can view their orders at any time by going to the “My account” section or by contacting Customer Service at the address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Please note that the Order Confirmation does not constitute acceptance of your order by Alevì S.r.l.. Alevì S.r.l. accepts the order by sending the Customer another confirmation email attesting that the order has been accepted and that the Products have been shipped (“Shipment Confirmation”). The invoice of the order will be attached to the email containing the Shipping Confirmation.
- If the products you ordered are temporarily out of stock (except for products available in limited quantities, for which the date they are expected to be available is given) you will be informed by Alevì S.r.l. by the next working day after your order was submitted. If the products are unavailable, your payment card will not be charged; if the amount had already been charged, a refund will be issued within 14 (fourteen) days on the payment card used for submitting the order. For payment made by bank transfer, if you have already made the transfer, Alevì S.r.l. will refund the amount of your purchase on the same bank account. In the event you have not yet made the bank transfer, the order will be cancelled and you will be contacted immediately.
- Alevì S.r.l. reserves the right at its sole discretion not to accept orders placed by any Customers it suspects do not meet the requirements for submitting orders or those made by persons with which there is a legal dispute in progress concerning a previous order or for any other reason, without having to give any explanation. If Alevì S.r.l. finds it impossible to accept your order, you will be informed within 30 days after the date on which your order was submitted and you will be issued a refund for any sums paid. Alevì S.r.l. reserves the right at its sole discretion not to accept or fulfil orders appearing to have been placed by merchants or distributors.
- Bear in mind that for each Product sold on the Site an image of it can be viewed together with the unit price, colours and sizes available. Product images are provided purely and exclusively for illustration purposes and may look different because of the browser or monitor used or due to graphic or printing errors or other technical reasons.
