4.2. Even after the submission by the Company of the Order Confirmation email, there might be cases of partial or complete unavailability of the Products. In these instances, the Customer shall be immediately notified by email by the Company’s Customer Care, that will support the Customer in the management of the Order asking whether he/she wish to (i) cancel the Order made; or (ii) replace the Product with another Product among those available.

6.2. The key features of the Products are shown on the Website in each Product description. Specifically, for each Product, the Company offers Customers the possibility to view several pictures and, if possible, an image of the Product worn. However, some errors, inaccuracies or minor differences between what is presented on the Website and the actual product may arise. In addition, please note that the colors of the Products as they appear on the Customer’s screen might differ slightly from the actual colors, because the gradient of color depends on how the monitor used for the purchase visualizes the reference color (which might therefore vary from monitor to monitor) or on the Internet browser used. The Customer therefore waives the right to make any claims in this respect.

In the event of computer, manual, or technical errors, or errors of any other nature that result in a substantial change of the retail price and are such that this is excessive or clearly too low, the Purchase Order shall be considered invalid and shall be cancelled by the Company.
