The exclusive contracts with the Conca D’Oro sas made by way of the Site are regulated by these General Conditions, in respect of Italian standards. The language for use in the contract is Italian.
2. Choosing and ordering the product
The characteristics and prices of the various products on sale on the Site (hereafter called ‘Product’ or ‘Products) are carried on the pages relating to each Product.
For the purchase of the Products the Customer must fill in the order form in its electronic format, following the instructions given on the Site.
Once the order has been sent, this having contractual value, the Customer recognises and declares that he or she is aware of all indications given during the purchase procedure, and accepts wholly these General Conditions and all conditions regarding payment.
The contract stipulated between Conca D’Oro sas and the Customer is taken to be concluded when Conca D’Oro sas accepts the order.
Such acceptance shall be communicated to the Customer by way of an e-mail of confirmation of the order ,which shall contain a reference to these General Conditions, the order number, details of delivery and invoicing, and the list of the Products ordered with their essential characteristics and total price, including delivery costs. The Customer shall check the e-mail of confirmation, and should any errors be found shall have 12 hours of time following reception of the e-mail in which to contact Customer Services directly from the Site, using the suitable contact form accessed by way of the ‘Assistenza’ tab.
Once this period has passed, the order will be executed preparatory to its delivery, and no further modifications may be accepted, without any prejudice to the rights of the Customer, as at article 7 below.
Once the order has been received, Conca D’Oro sas shall check the availability of the stock so as to carry out the order. In cases where one or more Products are not available, Customer Services shall swiftly send an e-mail to the Customer to communicate such. The Customer shall then have 12 hours of time in which to answer, confirming the order of such Products or cancelling the order. Should no reply be received in this period of time, the order shall be considered as confirmed, and the available products forwarded. In this case, the entire sum relating to the Products lacking shall be refunded, or – according to the type of payment method selected – shall not be charged to the Customer.
3. Product Information
Information and characteristics relating to the Products, with the Product code, are available on the Site.
Visual reproduction of the product on the Site, where available, corresponds to the normal photographic image of the Product, to accompany the descriptive details. It should be understood that the Product image has only the purpose of representing this for sale, and may not be perfectly representative of its characteristics and quality, but may differ regarding colour and size. In cases of differences between the image and the descriptive details, these latter shall always be taken to attest to the Product quality.
4. Prices and delivery
The prices of the Products are inclusive of all taxes and duties. All prices are given in Euro.

5. Payment methods and invoicing
The Customer may make payment for the Product and all related delivery costs by way of credit card, PayPal, bank transfer, pre-paid credit cards, and cash on delivery.

In cases where this does not come about, the order will be cancelled and the goods placed anew at the availability of other Customers for purchase.

7. Right of withdrawal
The Customer has the right to withdraw from the contract for whatever reason, without need to offer explanation and without any penalty, excluding those cases laid down in point IV below.

Such communication must be sent by registered post to the following address:
fao – Amministrazione shop on line
Conca d’Oro s.a.s.
Via Indipendenza, 102
57021 Venturina Terme ( LI )
Once such communication has been received, the Conca D’Oro sas Customer Services shall open the procedure for the management of the return, and instruct the Customer regarding the method of return, which shall take place using the Courier indicated by Conca D’Oro sas itself.
The right of withdrawal is governed by the following conditions.
the right applies to Product purchased in its entirety. Therefore should the Product be composed of multiple components or parts, it will not be possible to exercise withdrawal regarding only part of the Product purchased.
In cases of exercise of the right of withdrawal, Conca D’Oro sas shall reimburse the Customer with the entire sum of the goods returned, including delivery costs, within 14 days from the date in which communication of withdrawal is received, subject to the right of Conca D’Oro sas to suspend payment of any reimbursal until full restitution of the goods has taken place. Reimbursal shall take place using the same method of payment as originally chosen by the Customer, except in cases where this latter has requested a different method. In cases of bank transfer, or cash on delivery payments, it shall be the responsibility of the Customer to supply bank details for the reimbursal to be made (account name, name and address and IBAN of the bank).
In order to guarantee that restitution of the goods is free of charge, as under article 8 below, the Products must be returned in the same box or packaging in which they were received.
Beyond the cases indicated in the Premises above (Customer not consumer and/or requiring invoice), the right of withdrawal is excluded in the following cases, as under article 59 of the legislative decree 21/2014:
- orders of Product made-to-measure or clearly personalised;
- orders of Product which risk rapid deterioration or expiry;
- orders of sealed Product which are not suitable for return for hygienic reasons, or others related to health protection, or those which have been opened following delivery.
The Customer is informed, and accepts, that Products which ‘risk rapid deterioration or expiry’, as in the cases of exclusion from the right of withdrawal listed above, include all food Products (including wines, spirits and drinks), given that the characteristics and qualities of such Product types are subject to alteration also as a consequence of non-appropriate methods of storage. As such, for hygienic reasons and for Customer protection, the right of withdrawal is applicable solely to the products which may be returned to Conca D’Oro sas and placed again on sale without any health risk to consumers.
In cases of exclusion of the right of withdrawal, Conca D’Oro sas shall return the Products purchased to the Customer, and charge the same for the costs of delivery.
8. Free return in cases of the exercise of the right of withdrawal
As a condition of favour to the Customer, Conca D’oro sas shall take as its own responsibility all costs of return of Product in cases of the exercise of the right of withdrawal.
So as to aid with such charge-free transportation, the Customer who intends to exercise the right of withdrawal shall follow the procedure indicated in the article 7 above, and await contact from Conca D’Oro sas to agree restitution of the product to the Courier.
9. Guarantees and non-conformity
In cases of Product non-conformity and defect regarding goods sold by Conca D’Oro sas, the Customer shall immediately contact Customer Services using the specific contact form, accessed by way of the ‘Assistenza Cliente’ (Customer Assistance) tab.
Legal guarantees applicable on sale of the product are laid down in articles 129, 130 and 132 of the Consumers Code. The Customer has the right, at choice and on condition that the typology of product allows this, to Product renewal, without cost, by way of repair or substitution, or to an adequate reduction in price or to the resolution of the contract. The Customer loses such rights in cases where no notification of defect or non-conformity is made to Conca D’Oro within two months from the date in which such a defect is detected. Again this excludes cases regarding Product which, for its nature, is perishable or subject to expiry in shorter periods, in which cases the defect must be notified within such shorter periods.
