Terms tolerances, reduction and Seller termination
The delivery terms established in the order confirmation from the Seller only have an approximate value, they are not essential terms according to the art. 1457c.c. and are always indicated by the Seller except for:
- Delay caused by force majeure
- Difficulties on raw materials supplies
- Demands or needs of production and/or commercialization
- Non-execution by the Buyer to the established payment conditions
The delivery term is considered satisfied with the effective delivery of the goods by the Seller to the courier or directly at Buyer’s premises. The Seller complies with the delivery terms as far as possible: anyway, a tolerance of 15 working days is permitted. In case of force majeure impediments, the Seller will have the faculty to delay the deliveries or the shippings, or to reduce the quantity of the goods not already delivered until the end of the above-mentioned causes. The Buyer cannot claim any refund for damages because of the delayed delivery of the commissioned goods, as the delivery dates are approximate and never peremptory.
Where not differently established, the goods are considered sold by EXW.
Goods travel exclusively at Buyers own risks and responsibility also if sold as C.I.F. or F.O.B. or D.A.P.: consequently, the Seller is not responsible for possible damages, delays and incidents related to the goods from the moment of the delivery to the first courier.
The Buyer is in charge of any claims and actions against the courier or the assurance company.

For all of our prices and Products, we reserve the right to make adjustments to your order due to changing market conditions, Product discontinuation, manufacturer price changes, errors in advertisements, and other exceptional circumstances.
Due to logistic and quality control reasons it can also occur that the quantity (in meters) you selected in your order will differ slightly from the quantity (in meters) displayed at check-out and/or the quantity finally confirmed in our final order confirmation. We need to calculate a certain tolerance in order to handle the transaction logistically as follows:
A tolerance of +- 5% on quantity, weight and technical characteristics is always to be considered up to 1.000m, for more than 1.000m, the tolerance is of +-3% between the ordered quantity and the delivered quantity per order, and for single quantities per article and colour; of 10% on the length of the fabric, of 10% on the weight of the fabric per meter, of 5% on the width of the fabric.
