2 - Orders
The customer may only purchase products that are present in LIGRA DS SRL's electronic catalogue at the time the order is placed and can be viewed online atwww.ligra.it.
It is understood that the picture accompanying the description of a product may not be perfectly representative of its characteristics, but may differ in colour, size, accessory products in the picture. Orders are accepted only and exclusively if sent in written form by fax/post/e-mail ("not online" managed with the support of LIGRA DS SRL personnel), or via the Internet (managed online on the B2B Web Store, www.ligra.it).
The customer who sends the order "on line" will, at the end of the procedure, receive by electronic mail (e-mail) a confirmation communication stating that the order has been received and the relative "order number" assigned.

The "offline" order must always include the exact company name including address, VAT number, tax code, the reference of the person in charge of following up the order, the quantity of the goods, our product code as shown in the online catalogue, the shipping destination if different from the Customer's place of business, and any indication of the carrier agreed with the Customer for forwarding the goods or our usual carriers.For "non-online" orders, the customer shall receive an order confirmation by e-mail from the operator and shall have the right to freely modify the order within 20 minutes of placing it.
There is the possibility for the customer to request that the goods be delivered on a date different and later than the date of acceptance. If this date is later than 20 days from the date of acceptance, LIGRA DS SRL will not reserve the products until 20 days before the requested delivery date provided that the products are available on that date.

Transport shall be carried out in the manner deemed appropriate by LIGRA DS SRL.The goods travel at the Customer's risk in accordance with Article 1693 of the Civil Code (carrier's liability for loss and damage).

Upon receipt of the goods, the Customer is obliged to examine them carefully: the examination involves the condition, weight, quantity and type of the articles.
