The following Terms and Conditions are regulated by the Italian Law.
Transportation and delivery of goods
Goods are always travelling at Customer's risk, even if the agreed shipping method is DAP (Delivered at place). Company will therefore not respond - even to third parties - for any missing, partial or delayed delivery of goods.
Except when Customer has already ordered and accepted Testpressings, if some records of a stock, or all records of a stock, are not matching the specifications as described in the order, or not fulfilling the expected quality standards, Company, after having received them back, will double check them and, if necessary, will promply replace some or all of them them at no further expenses for Customer.
Payment forms / delayed payments
Goods are property of Company until they are not fully paid by customer. Only payments done directly to Company are recognized by Company in terms of Customer's obligations. Unless explicitly stated by Company by written, (e.g. in the delivery document or in the invoice), goods must be entirely paid before being shipped to Customer or picked up by him at Company's facility. Incoming payments exceeding the dates due, as stated in the invoice, will give Company the right to charge Customer with legal interests, according to D.Lgs. n. 232, 9 Oct. 2002 of the Italian "Codice Civile", calculated from the day after the "dates due" date reported in the Invoice.
Property of metalparts
Customer can freely ask to receive the nickel "mothers" of any of his order references for a period of 2 (two) years starting from the date of the respective invoices. Company will be responsible for the safekeeping of the metalwork during that period. After the expiring of the 2 years, if still in possession of the metalwork, Company will be free to destroy or recycle it.
Customer, when sending to Company the master(s) and artwork, is obliged to fill, date and sign the "Copyright Declaration Form" (one form per submitted job). Company reserves the right to wait for this document and inspect it before starting to produce the job.
For all disputes arising from these General Sales Conditions, the binding jurisdiction is the Italian jurisdiction, Tribunale di Padova.
Withheld of records in case of disputes regarding Copyright
