2.General Conditions of Sale
These General Conditions of Sale define the terms of sale between Bianchi & Fontana Srl and its Customers.
For the purposes of these General Conditions of Sale, all those who make a purchase (individuals or companies) are to be considered Customers.
The fact that Customers select the option “I accept the General Conditions of Sale” before confirming an order is automatic acknowledgement that they have read and accepted these General Conditions of Sale.
The latter shall be applied to the exclusion of all other clauses, except in the case of special agreements set forth in writing and signed by both parties.
Purchases effected by e-mail, telephone, fax or post similarly imply acceptance of the General Conditions of Sale, which can be read directly on the Internet site www.bianchifontana.it under the heading General Conditions of Sale.
Bianchi & Fontana Srl reserves the right to change these General Conditions of Sale at any time.
Every version of the General Conditions of Sale bears a precise date; Customers should therefore read the General Conditions of Sale before every purchase.
3.Nature of the relationship and cases of non-applicability of consumer protection legislation
Under the provisions of the national and Community laws presently in force, the economic relationship between Supplier and Customer is governed by consumer protection legislation exclusively in the event that the Customer makes a purchase for personal reasons unrelated to his/her working activity.
Therefore, the relations between a Supplier and Customer who makes a purchase for reasons related to his/her working activity and provides a VAT registration number shall not be subject to application of consumer protection legislation, including, in particular, Legislative Decree 185 of 1999, Leg. Decree 50 of 1992-right of withdrawal and art. 1469 bis and subs. of the Italian Civil Code.
Unless specified otherwise in writing, all prices shown are to be considered “VAT excluded” and stated in Euros.

Payment must be made via bank transfer to the account indicated in documents valid for tax purposes or invoices, or via issuance of a collection order to be paid by the Customer, who must provide his/her bank account details.
