The following text referred to as "general sales conditions" regulates the terms and the sales conditions of the products sold by Group-Shoes.com ("the products", hereinafter). Any agreements between Group-Shoes.com and the third party ("the customers", hereinafter) for the sales of products are regulated exclusively by these General Conditions which form an integral part of any proposal, order and order confirmation. The sales conditions applicable to the order are those in force on the date of the order.
Any modifications on payment terms or operations notwithstanding the General Conditions shall be valid only under written acceptance by Group-Shoes.com.
These General Conditions are applicable to all Customers, except for some provisions applied to the Retail Customer exclusively (a "Retail Customer" is natural person buying products for purposes alien to business or professional activities). A "Retail Customer" is a customer who sends a purchase proposal without entering his/her own VAT number in the area where the customer's personal data is requested. Articles from 50 to 63 of the Legislative Decree no. 206/2005 are applied to the Purchase Agreements stipulated by Retail Customers. At any time and without notice, Group-Shoes.com may modify the content of these General Conditions. The aforesaid modifications shall be valid from the date of the publication on the Website.
The order sent by the Customer is considered as a contract proposal and entails the awareness and acceptation of these General Conditions.
Group-shoes confirms the receipt of the Customer's proposal sending an automatic reply to the Customer's e-mailbox. This automatic e-mail only confirms the correct receipt of the proposal. The confirmation message shall indicate the "PO number" to use for future messages addressed to Group-shoes.
The Customer may display the order in his/her login area. When the order is dispatched, the data displayed in the login area will be updated. Any Purchase Agreements stipulated between Group-shoes and the Customer is considered to be concluded after Group-shoes order acceptance. At its discretion, Group-shoes may accept or refuse the order sent by the Customer who may not complain or claim for compensation, in the event of non-acceptance of the aforesaid order. The order is considered to be accepted by Group-shoes if, within 48 hours after the order dispatch, the Client does not receive any further communication. In the event of order refusal, Group-shoes shall inform the Customer by e-mail.
By the order dispatch, the Customer declares to have read all instructions contained in the purchasing process and to accept both the General Conditions and the Terms of Payment described as follows
The prices of the products are clearly displayed on the website and are VAT included. Further taxes or duties required by the applicable legislations for the importation of products are not included. In this case, the Customer shall have to clear custom operations paying the taxes and the duties required in the importing country (in addition to VAT).

In no case, Group-shoes shall be responsible for possible delayed deliveries.
If the order is paid by bank transfer, Group-shoes shall send the products to its customers only when the amount is credited to the aforesaid current account and displayed correctly.
