By clicking on the "Shopping Cart" item at the top right of the screen, the customer displays the goods selected up to that point and has the option of modifying them.
When the already registered customer wants to finalise the purchase, he can log into his account and use the data saved there for the current order.

When viewing a preview of the order, complete with prices, including VAT, and delivery options and costs, the customer must click 'Buy' to close the order.
2. Conclusion of contract
By clicking on 'Buy' the customer sends the seller a binding offer to conclude a purchase contract. The customer then receives an automatic e-mail confirmation of receipt of the order.

The customer shall notify the Seller's Customer Service of any damage to the goods during transport.
If, due to problems beyond his control, the Seller is unable to dispatch the ordered goods, he may terminate the contract.

The cost of returning the goods shall be borne by the customer, who shall be liable for any decrease in the value of the goods resulting from handling the goods other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.
