Art. 1 – Conclusion of the contract

The order submitted to the La Via del Tè online Shop must be completed in full and must contain the elements necessary for the identification of the Customer and the products ordered, as well as details of the delivery address, on pain of invalidity. The Via del Tè online Shop will send to the Customer an e-mail confirming receipt of the order and containing a reference to the applicable sales conditions.

Art. 2 – Availability and delivery

The La Via del Tè online Shop undertakes to accept orders within the limits of the stocks of goods available. In particular circumstances, the La Via del Tè online Shop may not be in a position to ensure the availability of all the products on offer, and hence cannot be considered liable for the temporary unavailability of one or more products.
The submission of the order by the Customer is deemed valid also as acceptance of a possible partial delivery, restricted to the products available among those that have been ordered, and also as a waiver of any claim for compensation and/or indemnity under such entitlement. The La Via del Tè online Shop undertakes, moreover, pursuant to the law, to inform the Customer promptly of the non-availability of the ordered product.
(i) If, despite the care we take to prevent this, upon payment confirmation the ordered product should prove to be temporarily unavailable, the La Via del Tè online Shop reserves the right to suggest an article of equivalent quality and price, without charging any additional costs to the customer. Where this is not possible, or if the Customer does not wish to accept a replacement, he or she may decide whether to wait for the product to be available again or to cancel the order, again without any additional costs.
(ii) Instead, in the case of permanent non-availability, should it not be possible to supply an article of equivalent quality and price, the order will be automatically cancelled.
We would also remind you that with credit card payment the amount will actually be charged 7 days from receipt of the order. Consequently, in the event that an article is not available and it is not possible to make a replacement, the credit card will be charged only for the value of the goods actually available.
The Via del Tè online Shop delivers the product or products ordered by the Customer on the conditions specifically set out in this website under the heading “Shipping”.

Cascine del Riccio 50023 FIRENZE. In this communication the Customer must indicate the product or products for which he or she intends to exercise the right to withdraw. In accordance with the law, the La Via del Tè online Shop shall then proceed, at its own responsibility and expense – and in the manner and terms agreed in advance with the Customer, saving the waiver of the latter – to the refund of the amount paid or to replacement with another product.

The written communication, sent by registered letter, must contain:
