h) Product Delivery

The terms of delivery are indicated on the website and they must be considered as not binding for Frantoio Tini, which may confirm or change delivery dates. Any delivery delay of less than 30 (thirty) days shall not entitle the Customer to refuse delivery of products, nor claim compensation or any damages of any kind.

The delivery note issued by the carrier must be dated and signed by the customer upon delivery of the product, and shall constitute proof of transport and release of the goods.

i) Parcel check
On delivery, the Customer must check the contents, compliance and condition of the products. Frantoio Tini recommends the Customer checks the condition of the products delivered, before signing the acknowledgement of receipt, and in particular: - Packaging must not be damaged, greasy, wet or otherwise altered, and contents must be checked for damage. - The number of boxes must correspond with that indicated for the transport document accompanying the consignment. If the Customer finds any faults, he/she must refuse delivery of products or write down his/her detailed and dated reservations. Those reservations must be declared to the carrier within 3 (three) working days following the delivery of the products. A notice should be sent to Frantoio Tini. If the courier note is signed without attaching any “reservation,” the Customer will not be able to make any objection about the appearance of the delivery. Any problems concerning the physical integrity, correspondence or completeness of the products received must be reported within 3 (three) days of delivery. Shipments shall be made after confirmation of payment. Bank transfers shall be considered received once funds have been credited to our bank account, while payment made by credit card shall be considered received once the transaction has been confirmed by the card organisation. Terms and conditions of delivery details shall be agreed between the Customer and Frantoio Tini and accepted in writing by Frantoio Tini.
j) Collection of products in case of absence of the Customer
In the absence of the consignee during the delivery, the carrier shall leave a transit advice note at the delivery address provided by the Customer. Products must be collected from the address by the method indicated by the carrier. If collection by the carrier is not possible within the specified period, the products shall be returned to Frantoio Tini, which reserves the right to refund the price of products, while leaving the shipping costs charged to the Customer.
k) Major force
The following cases are explicitly considered as cases of force majeure, in addition to those normally considered according to case law: Total or partial strikes, inside or outside the company, blocking of means of transport, governmental or legal restrictions, computer failure, blocking of telecommunications, including networks and in particular the Internet systems, pandemics and recognized health hazards. In case of major force, by rights, the execution of the order shall be suspended.

The right of withdrawal referred to in previous article may not be exercised by the Customer in the event that the purchased products consist of bottles of oil that he/she has opened, or if the items corresponding to the sale have been ordered and produced expressly at his/her request. If products are damaged in transport during their return, Frantoio Tini shall provide notice to the Customer (within 5 working days of receipt of the products at its warehouses) to enable the latter to file a timely complaint against the courier of his/her choice and to obtain reimbursement of the value of the products (if insured). In this case, the product shall be provided to the Customer for its return, while cancelling the request for withdrawal. Frantoio Tini shall not be responsible under any circumstances for damage or theft/loss of products returned by means of uninsured shipments. All returns (which must be undamaged and accompanied by original packaging) must be authorised by Customer Services (firstname.lastname@example.org). Once the return has been authorised, the Customer must return the product to the following address: Frantoio Tini s.a.s., Contrada Pizzannocca 1, 64035 Castilenti (TE), Italia. Parcels against cash on delivery shall not be accepted. After the products have been received (and assessed for damage), Frantoio Tini shall credit the Customer, within the shortest time possible, the cost of the returned products (as indicated on the invoice), deducting shipping costs, which shall remain permanently charged to the Customer. During the return period mentioned in previous point, the Customer, as custodian, shall be responsible for the products.

n) Integrity of the contract
These general conditions of sale constitute the integrity of the parties’ obligations. No other general or specific condition communicated by the Customer may be introduced or contradict these general conditions. For Frantoio Tini, failure to enforce non-compliance on the part of the Customer with any of its obligations shall not be interpreted as its waiver of the obligation in question and the possibility of enforcing that non-compliance at a later time. If one or more provisions of these general conditions is considered invalid, or declared such pursuant to a law, regulation, or following a final decision taken by a competent jurisdiction, the other provisions shall retain their full force and value.
