In each case, we will check the accuracy of the prices of the products during the validation process of the order and the subsequent shipping of the products.

Any additional cost related to customs clearance will be at your charge. Such fees are not under our control and we cannot foresee their amount. Customs policies dramatically vary from one country to another and you should therefore contact your local customs office for further information. You should also take into consideration that, upon completing your order on the website, you are considered as the importer and you are therefore supposed to comply with all the legislation and provisions of the country where you receive the goods. Your privacy is important to us and we know that it largely depends on the way the information related to your order is used and shared.

The warranty scheme on products sold by Zazzeri Store will vary depending on whether the purchaser is a "consumer" or a "professional", within the meaning of Directive 1999/44/EC as for "certain aspects of the sale of consumer goods and associated guarantees".
If you purchase an item as a "consumer", you will benefit from the legal guarantee of conformity that the seller is legally obliged to provide for each item sold (hereinafter "Legal Guarantee") and that shall be valid for two years as of the delivery of the item. As a consumer, you will have to report the lack of conformity and/or the defects in the product within a period of 60 days from the date of detection or the delivery date.
If you purchase an item as a professional, the legal guarantee provided for in Article 1490 et seq. of the Italian Civil Code shall apply. Therefore, in the event of any defect in the item, the purchaser must inform the Customer Service within a period of 8 days from the date of detection of the defect, or from the delivery date, of such defect and ask either for the replacement of the piece or for the reimbursement of the price paid. In any case the purchaser will have to return the defective piece to the seller for the necessary assessments. In that case the Legal Guarantee shall apply for a period of one year from the delivery date of the product.
The Legal Guarantee - to which the seller is bound - guarantees the product against any lack of conformity in relation to the sales agreement.
As provided by law, in case the Legal Guarantee applies, you will be entitled to have the goods brought into conformity, free of charge, by repair or replacement, or, should this be impossible, to benefit from a reduction in the purchase price or rescindment of the agreement. Zazzeri Store shall therefore respond to any lack of conformity provided that it manifests itself under the above-mentioned conditions as of the date of delivery of the goods.
For further information regarding operating and exercising rules of the Legal Guarantee, contact our Customer Service via e-mail at email@example.com or by telephone at +390556242112.
In case you detect any lack of conformity in the item purchased from Zazzeri Store during the validity period of the Legal Guarantee, please contact our Customer Service via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or at the number +390556242112.
Within the limits permitted by the law, Zazzeri Store shall not be liable for any dispatched product non complying with the legislation of any country of delivery other than Italy.
Nor will we be held responsible for any non-substantial difference between the goods purchased and the illustrating pictures and descriptive texts displayed on our website.
Unless in case of intentional fault and serious misconduct, we shall be held responsible for direct damage predictable in the moment of the conclusion of the sales agreement only. We shall not be responsible for possible loss, lack of profit or any other damage that do not directly or immediately result from an action of ours or that could not be predicted at the moment of the conclusion of the sales agreement. On no account will Zazzeri Store be responsible for the non-fulfilment of the obligations pertaining to a third party which could possibly offer commercial guarantees regarding an item sold on the website.
