In the event of a lack of conformity of the goods, the consumer has the right:

- to restore compliance,

- or to a proportional reduction in the price,

- or upon termination of the contract.

For the purposes of restoring the goods to conformity, the consumer can choose between repair and replacement, provided that the chosen remedy is not impossible or excessively burdensome for the seller taking into account:

- the value of the goods in the absence of the defect,

- the extent of the defect,

- the possibility of using the alternative remedy without inconvenience for the consumer.

The consumer has the right to a proportional reduction in the price or termination of the contract:

- if the seller has not repaired or replaced the goods,

- if a lack of conformity appears despite the attempt to restore the goods,

- if the lack of conformity is so serious as to justify the price reduction or termination,

- if the seller has declared or it appears from the circumstances that he will not restore conformity within a reasonable time.

The consumer does not have the right to terminate the contract if the lack of conformity is slight and it is up to the seller to prove it.

The consumer has the right to a price reduction proportional to the decrease in value of the goods.

In case of termination of the contract, the same is exercised by direct declaration to the seller. If the lack of conformity concerns only some of the goods delivered, the contract can be terminated limited to them. In case of termination, the consumer:

- must return the goods to the seller at the latter's expense,

- the seller reimburses the consumer the price paid for the goods upon receipt of the goods or of the evidence provided by the consumer regarding the fact that he has returned or shipped the goods.

If the Customer is a Professional, he is not entitled to the legal guarantee of conformity but only the legal guarantee provided for by the Civil Code, therefore in the event of defects in the Products sold which make them unsuitable for use or which are such as to reduce in appreciable way their value, the same may request the reduction of the price or the termination of the sale in the cases provided for by the same Civil Code and for this purpose he must communicate to the Seller the presence of the defect within 8 (eight) days of its discovery, and in any case within 1 (one) year of delivery.

In case of defects of conformity, Customers are invited to contact the Seller for a prompt resolution.
