6.1. The Buyer may pay the goods/services purchased in any of the ways indicated hereunder. No extra fees will be charged to the Buyer.
6.2. Payments may be made Credit Card (Visa - MasterCard): the first order will be processed only once the Seller’s bank has contacted the Buyer’s bank to check and confirm the Buyer’s details. The order will be shipped only once this check has been completed successfully. This means that it may take a little longer to process your first order.
In all cases, the Customer must confirm that he or she is the legal holder of the credit card. Payments may also be made with PayPal-type credit cards (in this case you will not need to enter your credit card number or other personal details, but simply your email and password. This type of card may be used to purchase on-line against the funds available on the card), PostePay (this is a prepaid card that runs on the Visa Electron circuit sold by Poste Italiane, the card is a top up card not linked to a current account, that is used to make on-line purchases against the funds available on the card).
6.4. Before processing the order, the credit card is checked with the issuing bank, as further protection for the customer. With this form of payment, after completing the process, you generate a purchase proposal that will be confirmed by email; a specific “order number” will be assigned to your order and should be indicated in any further communications with Hprc.it.
7.1. All sales prices of the products shown and indicated on the website www.hprc.it are in Euro, and represent the price offered to the public, as set forth by art. 1336 of the Italian Civil Code.
7.2. Unless otherwise provided by point 8, the sales prices mentioned above are inclusive of VAT. Shipping costs and additional charges (e.g. customs clearance), if any, are not included in the price, and should be paid when the goods are delivered.
7.3. The prices shown next to the products offered to the public are valid until the date indicated by the catalogue/website or until such time as they are modified, on the understanding that the price shall be that indicated at the time of purchase.
7.4. The price of the product will be that indicated on the website from time to time, and is intended as valid other than in the case of obvious errors. Should this occur, the Buyer will be informed immediately and will be allowed either to confirm the order at the correct price or cancel the order. Should the Seller be unable to contact the Buyer, the order will be cancelled and the full amount paid by the Buyer will be refunded to the same. There is therefore no obligation to supply an item at a lower price which has been indicated in error (even if the Shipping Confirmation has already been sent), if the price error is clear and obvious, and it is reasonable to consider the same as incorrect.
