6.2 The Products shall remain the property of BendettaBoroli until having received the Total Amount by the Client.

6.3 Each Product is accompanied by a Product Sheet. The images and descriptions found on the Site reproduce the features of the Products as faithfully as possible. Product colours, however, may differ from actual ones due to the computer system or computer settings used by Customers for their display. Product Images on the Product Sheet may also differ in size or in relation to any accessories. Such images should therefore be considered as indicative and feature the tolerances regarding use. For the purposes of the purchase contract, the Product description contained in the order form sent by the Client shall prevail.
7.1 The Site accepts Payments made by Maestro, Mastercard, Visa, PayPal, Amex.
7.2 Upon payment confirmation by the bank, BendettaBoroli shall forward to the Customer an e-mail containing the payment confirmation payment and an order identification number. Upon completing the shipment of the goods, the Site shall send the Customer a further e-mail with the data required for the traceability of the parcel.

• cannot be purchased by Customers but are offered by BenedettaBoroli as part of promotional campaigns;
• can be used for a limited period of validity.
Some promotional vouchers can be applied to all the goods in the virtual cart; others shall only be applied to the single product. Promotional vouchers can be used:
• only once, in relation to a single order;
• within the specified period of validity.
Furthermore, some promotional vouchers may be excluded from purchasing certain products or the use of a voucher may be subject to a minimum level of expenditure.
If the amount of the voucher is not sufficient to cover the value of the product/s ordered, the difference can be paid through with the procedures indicated in Article 7.
Promotional coupons cannot be cumulated for the same order or transferred to third parties, and they can be used only if the order is finalized. Moreover, they cannot be used retrospectively.
If, during the order, the Customer used a promotional voucher and the total value of the order - due to the Customer's withdrawal - is less than the value of the promotional voucher, the Site reserves the right to invoice the original price of the goods remaining in the possession of the Customer.
BenedettaBoroli may limit the use the aforementioned vouchers to the achievement of a minimum expenditure threshold, shipping costs are excluded from the calculations of this threshold.
