The products for sale on the website and/or their characteristics are subject to change without notice.

The availability of the products refers to that present at the time the CUSTOMER consults the product sheets; this must, however, be considered purely indicative because, due to the presence of several users on the website simultaneously, the products could be sold to other CUSTOMERS before the order is confirmed.

Even after the order confirmation e-mail has been sent by Ardes srl, exceptional cases of partial or total unavailability of goods may occur.

In the event of an unfulfilled order due to unavailability, even temporary, of the product, Ardes srl shall notify the CUSTOMER in writing and shall immediately credit the CUSTOMER’s PayPal account with the amounts paid by the CUSTOMER.
