If you are not a Consumer, please do not buy any Products on the Site; Consumer means the person who enters into a contract in the exercise of such activities or for a purpose connected to this.

Therefore, cash-on-delivery is not provided as a payment method if the Buyer chooses delivery at the Retail Store.If the Buyer chooses the Click and Collect delivery method, delivery times and costs will be the same as those that apply to deliveries to the address indicated by the Buyer, unless the purchased Product is already available at the Point of Sale on the date the Order Form is sent. For specific product shipping and delivery procedures of the Products at the address indicated by the Buyer or at the selected Retail Store, the Buyer must access the Site section entitled "Customer Service". Please pay attention to the information provided in this section in that it represents an integral and essential part of these General Terms and Conditions and, therefore, such is deemed to be completely understood and accepted by the Buyer when the Order Form is transmitted.
