The Products, the type and quality, the characteristics, their operation, as well as the agreed quantity, and any other specific condition negotiated by the Parties are indicated in the offer, in the order, as well as in the instructions delivered to the buyer. The Parties declare that they have carefully read, before signing the Contract, all the documents that preceded its conclusion.

The Supplier expressly reserves the right to proceed with verification of compliance with the purchase conditions, requesting further information from the Purchaser.

In particular, the Supplier reserves the right to take legal action against the Contractor where the falsity in the statements made by the Contractor cause or may cause damage to the Supplier, to the Site or to third parties.
4 - HOW TO ACCESS THE SITE AND PURCHASE ONLINE
Access to the Site is via electronic connection to the site. The connection to the site takes place through access via a data transmission network, through the connection to the site www.comastridistribution.com. This connection is operational every day of the week, 24 hours a day. To view the site pages correctly, this minimum configuration is required. If this minimum configuration is not respected by the Contractor, the Supplier does not guarantee correct access to the Site and its services. The Contractor user acknowledges that the Supplier is not liable for any damage, direct or indirect, that may arise to the Contractor as a result of the failure to adopt the minimum configuration required by the previous paragraph.
The website www.comastridistribution.com is fully managed by the company COMASTRI DISTRIBUTION S.R.L. through a hosting contract with the IT company, responsible for the support, without prejudice to any cases of force majeure or cases otherwise independent of direct responsibility of third parties or parties internal to COMASTRI DISTRIBUTION S.R.L. who have had access to the site. The performance of maintenance operations that will prevent the connection will be promptly communicated by the Supplier to the Contractor, except in the event that interventions are required which, due to their particular urgency, do not allow to give the mentioned notice.
The costs of connection to the electronic network, as well as those relating to computer equipment, computer systems, software programs and any other tool or means necessary to connect to the Site, are the sole responsibility of the Contractor. The Contract entered into through the site is considered concluded when the buyer confirms the order, which is followed by an automatic summary email of the order, with which Comastri Distribution accepts the order sent by the buyer and informs him that he can proceed with the processing of it, according to times and ways that are not and cannot be estimated in advance, which will be followed by the shipment of the product. Each Purchaser will access the Site and will proceed with the purchase of the selected product, after indicating the delivery and invoicing details, which are indispensable for the e-commerce procedure, which will be completed and finalized with an indication of the expected payment method. The Contractor is responsible for any damage, direct or indirect, deriving from the knowledge and use of the personal identification tools by third parties or external parties. The Supplier does not bear any liability towards the Contractor in relation to the damages that may derive from unauthorized access by third parties. The buyer may purchase the Products indicated within the type and/or quantity indicated. Upon receipt of the order by the Site, the system will automatically send a summary of the order received, followed by the shipment of the purchased item.
5 - PRICE AND SHIPPING COSTS
All the sales prices of the Products offered in the electronic catalogs on the Site, indicated in euros, are to be considered net of VAT. The buyer, by ordering and placing the selected products in the virtual cart, each of which will display a price, accepts to be charged the amount due for the service requested. The price of the product indicated on the site has a definitive value, except in the event that – for exceptional situations – the Company considers it appropriate to revise the prices. Exceptional conditions include, but are not limited to the sudden and not agreed change of costs by the supplier, or shipping costs in general. Disputes by the buyer pursuant to the preceding paragraphs are presumed to contravene fairness and good faith if, immediately after they have been raised, in any case not later than 8 days from the delivery of the goods, the buyer does not send to the Company, registered letter or certified email of complaint with the justifications of the grievances. This sum must be paid by bank transfer or PayPal, made in favour of COMASTRI DISTRIBUTION SRL.
The prices indicated in the electronic catalogues are binding, unless unpredictable changes in the currency or cost of raw materials occur. In this case, the Supplier will promptly and in advance inform the Buyer, except in cases of impossibility that may arise and that are not attributable to you. Each new price list or its update cancels and replaces the previous ones.
The amount and minimum purchase quantity cannot be different from what is stated in the online offer and how much the system is able to load into the digital shopping cart. The tax documentation relating to the Products ordered will be issued by the Laboratory after the conclusion of the contract.
