The Seller and the Purchaser are collectively referred as the parties (the “Parties”), and individually referred as a party (a “Party”).

The Purchaser shall read and understand these Terms and Conditions before proceeding with the transaction. If there is any term that the Purchaser does not understand or does not wish to agree to, it shall discuss it with a representative of the Seller.

The Terms and Conditions set the rights and obligations of the Purchaser and the Seller.

In Pursuant to the European Union (EU) Directive 2011/83/EU of the European Parliament and of the council of 25 October 2011 on consumer rights (the “2011/83/EU Directive”), in case the Purchaser is a natural person acting for purposes which are outside his trade, business, craft or profession falling within the scope of the 2011/83/EU Directive (the “Consumer”), the latter should refer to Section II of these Terms and Conditions for provisions which apply specifically to Consumers, in conformity with the EU Directive 2011/83/EU of the European Parliament and of the council of 25 October 2011 on consumer rights or any applicable local legislation.

The Purchaser and the Seller agree to be bound by the Terms and Conditions.
