In these eventualities, the order will be automatically rectified with the elimination of the product or products that are not available and the CUSTOMER will be immediately informed by e-mail; with this e-mail the customer will also be informed of the modalities and timing for the reimbursement of any sums paid.

ARTICLE 7 - RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL

ARTICLE 8 - LEGAL GUARANTEE OF CONFORMITY
Only consumers - i.e. natural persons who have purchased a product for use not in connection with a commercial, entrepreneurial or professional activity - may benefit from the legal guarantee. Therefore, invoices bearing the VAT number of a business or professional person are not entitled to the rights under the legal guarantee. Pursuant to the Consumer Code, a consumer may request the seller of a product to apply the remedies of the legal guarantee for conformity defects that have become apparent within 24 months after delivery of the product. The consumer must report the defect within 2 months of its discovery. Consumers may apply the remedies of the legal guarantee provided that they have proof of purchase (e.g. tax receipt/receipt) of the product. It is therefore important to always keep the receipt relating to the purchase of the product.
In the event of receipt of defective products or products that do not in any case conform to the orders placed, the CUSTOMER is entitled to the restoration, at no charge, of the conformity of the product by means of repair or replacement, pursuant to the Consumer Code.
Any product found to be defective or non-compliant must be diagnosed by a workshop authorised by Donno Bikes in order to verify warranty claims.
In the event that the diagnosis establishes that the product has a conformity defect (i.e. that the conditions of the Consumer Code are met), the consumer will be informed of the estimated repair time.
In the event that the diagnosis establishes that the conditions set out in the Consumer Code are not met (e.g. if the defect is a consequence of incorrect use of the product by the consumer), Donno Bikes will contact the consumer to inform him/her of the nature of the defect and the estimated repair costs. These costs will be borne entirely by the consumer, as will any transport/shipping costs for the product. In addition, in some cases, the consumer may be required to pay the costs of the diagnosis made. These costs will be communicated to the consumer in advance, when the product is delivered for diagnosis.
In cases where the legal warranty does not apply, Donno Bikes will require the consumer to approve the repair cost estimate before work is started

ARTICLE 9 - MODE OF DELIVERY
DONNO BIKES will only accept orders for delivery within Italian territory, with the exception of the territory of San Marino and the Vatican City. The products will be delivered by express courier to the address indicated by the CUSTOMER when placing the order within and no later than 30 days from the date of receipt by the CUSTOMER of the order confirmation e-mail sent by DONNO BIKES.
The PARTNERS undertake to dispatch and deliver the goods in accordance with the timescales set out in their specific terms and conditions of sale.

The invoice is available and printable, following the processing of the order, in the "My orders" section of the CUSTOMER's "My online account" space. The invoice shall contain the information provided by the CUSTOMER during the purchase process. After the invoice has been issued, it will not be possible to make any changes to the data indicated on the invoice.

Article 130
Seller's Obligations and Consumer Conduct

(a) that the consumer can reasonably expect, given the type and purpose of the goods and digital elements, and taking into account the circumstances and the nature of the contract, if the sales contract provides for a single act of supply of the digital content or digital service; or
(b) referred to in Article 133(2) or (3), as the case may be, where the sales contract provides for a continuous supply of the digital content or digital service over a period of time.

Third Party Rights
1. The remedies provided for in Article 135-bis extend to cases of prevention or limitation of use of the goods sold in accordance with the provisions of Articles 129 and 130, resulting from a restriction arising from the infringement of third party rights, in particular intellectual property rights, without prejudice to other provisions of the legal system regarding nullity, avoidance or other termination of the contract.

Article 133
Seller's liability

2. In the case of goods with digital elements, where the contract of sale provides for continuous supply of the digital content or the digital service for a period of time, the seller is also liable for any lack of conformity of the digital content or the digital service which occurs or becomes apparent within two years from the time of delivery of the goods with digital elements.

Article 134
Right of recourse
1. Where the final seller is liable to the consumer because of a lack of conformity attributable to an act or omission by a person in the preceding stages of the same chain of distribution contracts, including the failure to provide updates for goods with digital elements in accordance with Article 130(2), the final seller shall have a right of recourse against the person or persons responsible in the chain of transactions.
2. A final seller who has complied with the remedies exercised by the consumer may, within one year of the performance, bring an action in recourse against the person or persons liable for the performance in order to recover the sums provided.

Article 135
Burden of proof
1. Unless proved otherwise, any lack of conformity which becomes apparent within one year from the time the goods were delivered shall be presumed to have existed at that time, unless this is incompatible with the nature of the goods or the nature of the lack of conformity. This para. also applies to goods with digital elements.
2. In the case of goods with digital elements for which the contract of sale provides for the continuous supply of the digital content or digital service for a period of time, the burden of proof as to whether the digital content or digital service was in conformity within the period of time referred to in Article 133(2) rests on the seller for any lack of conformity which becomes apparent within the period of time referred to in that article.

Article 135-bis
Remedies
1. In the event of a lack of conformity of the goods, the consumer shall be entitled to have the conformity of the goods restored, or to receive a proportional reduction in the price, or to have the contract rescinded on the basis of the conditions set out in the following subparagraphs.
2. For the purpose of remedying the lack of conformity of the goods, the consumer may choose between repair and replacement, provided that the remedy chosen is not impossible or, compared with the alternative remedy, does not impose disproportionate costs on the seller, having regard to all the circumstances and in particular to the following:
(a) the value that the goods would have in the absence of the lack of conformity;
(b) the extent of the lack of conformity; and
(c) the possibility of pursuing the alternative remedy without significant inconvenience to the consumer.
3. The seller may refuse to perform the repair or replacement in conformity with the contract if the repair or replacement is impossible or if the costs to be borne by the seller are disproportionate, taking into account all the circumstances, including those set out in para.)
4. The consumer is entitled to a proportional reduction of the price or to termination of the sales contract pursuant to Article 135-quater in the event that
(a) the seller has not carried out the repair or replacement or has not carried out the repair or replacement, where possible, pursuant to Article 135-ter (1), (2) and (3), or has refused to bring the goods into conformity pursuant to subsection 3;
(b) a lack of conformity becomes apparent despite the seller's attempt to restore the conformity of the goods;
(c) the lack of conformity is so serious as to justify an immediate reduction in price or termination of the contract of sale; or
(d) the seller has stated or it is clear from the circumstances that he will not restore the goods to conformity within a reasonable time or without significant inconvenience to the consumer.
5. The consumer is not entitled to avoid the contract if the defect in conformity is only slight. The burden of proof of the minor defect is on the seller.
6. The consumer may refuse to perform any part of the price until the seller has performed its obligations under this Chapter. The provisions of the Civil Code governing the non-performance defence and the contributory negligence of the consumer remain unaffected.

Article 135b
Repair or replacement
1. Repair or replacement is carried out:
(a) without charge;
(b) within a reasonable time after the seller has been informed by the consumer of the lack of conformity; and
(c) without significant inconvenience to the consumer, having regard to the nature of the goods and the purpose for which the consumer wanted the goods.
2. If the lack of conformity is to be remedied by repair or replacement of the goods, the consumer must make them available to the seller. The seller takes back the replaced goods at its own expense.
3. Where the repair requires the removal of the good installed in a manner consistent with the nature and purpose of the good before the lack of conformity became apparent, or where it proves necessary to replace the good, the obligation to repair or replace the good includes the removal of the non-conforming good and the installation of the replacement or repaired good, or the obligation to bear the costs of removal or installation.
4. The consumer is not obliged to pay for the normal use of the replaced good in the period preceding the replacement.

Article 135c
Price Reduction and Termination of Contract
1. The price reduction is proportional to the decrease in value of the good received by the consumer compared to the value it would have had if it had been in conformity.
2. The consumer exercises the right to terminate the sales contract by means of a declaration addressed to the seller containing a manifestation of willingness to terminate the sales contract.
3. If the lack of conformity relates only to some of the goods delivered under the sales contract and there is a ground for rescission of the sales contract within the meaning of Article 135-bis, the consumer may rescind the contract only in respect of the non-conforming goods and the goods purchased together with the non-conforming goods, if it cannot reasonably be presumed that the consumer has an interest in keeping the goods free from the defects at his disposal.
4. If the consumer rescinds the sales contract in its entirety or, in accordance with para. (3), only with respect to some of the goods delivered under the sales contract:
(a) the consumer returns the goods to the seller, at the seller's expense, and
(b) the seller reimburses the consumer for the price paid for the goods upon receipt of the goods or of evidence provided by the consumer that he has returned or dispatched the goods.

Article 135-quinquies
Conventional guarantees
1. A contractual guarantee binds the person offering it in the manner set out in the guarantee statement itself and in the relevant advertising available at or before the conclusion of the contract.

conventional warranty concerning the durability of certain goods over a specified period of time, the producer is directly liable to the consumer during the entire duration of the warranty for the repair or replacement of the goods in accordance with Article 135b. In the conventional durability guarantee statement, the producer may offer the consumer more favourable conditions. If the conditions set out in the conventional warranty statement are less favourable to the consumer than the conditions set out in the associated advertising, the conventional warranty shall bind the consumer in accordance with the conditions set out in the advertising relating to the conventional warranty, unless the associated advertising has been corrected prior to the conclusion of the contract in the same or a similar manner as it was made.
2. The conventional warranty statement is provided to the consumer on a durable medium at the latest upon delivery of the goods. The statement of the contractual guarantee shall be drafted in plain and intelligible language. It shall include the following elements:

to enforce the conventional guarantee;
(d) the designation of the goods to which the contractual guarantee applies; and
(e) the conditions of the contractual guarantee.
3. Theanzia must be written in the Italian language with characters that are no less identical than those of any other language.
4. The failure to comply with the provisions of paragraph 2 does not affect the binding effect of the guarantor's conventional guarantee.

Article 135-sexies
Imperative nature of the provisions
1. Unless otherwise provided in this Chapter, any agreement, prior to the communication of the lack of conformity to the seller, intended to exclude or limit to the detriment of the consumer, even indirectly, the rights conferred by this Chapter, shall be null and void. The nullity may be invoked only by the consumer and may be raised by the court of its own motion.
2. The seller may always offer the consumer contractual terms and conditions of greater protection than the provisions of this Chapter.
3. Any contract term which, by providing for the applicability to the contract of the law of a State which is not a member of the European Union, has the effect of depriving the consumer of the protection afforded by this Chapter, where the contract has a close connection with the territory of a Member State of the European Union, shall be null and void.

Article 135 -septies
Protection under other provisions
1. The provisions of the Civil Code concerning the formation, validity and enforceability of contracts, including the consequences of termination of the contract and the right to damages, apply to all matters not provided for in this Chapter.

2. The consumer is entitled to the restoration of the conformity of the digital content or the digital service unless this is impossible or would impose costs on the trader that would be disproportionate, taking into account all the circumstances of the case and in particular the following:
(a) the value that the digital content or digital service would have in the absence of the lack of conformity; and
(b) the extent of the lack of conformity.
3. The trader shall make the digital content or digital service compliant pursuant to subsection 2, no later than
a reasonable period of time from the time when he was informed by the consumer about the lack of conformity, without cost and without significant inconvenience to the consumer, taking into account the nature of the digital content or the digital service and the use the consumer intended to make of it.
