The products made available for sale on the website are those that the User is able to view during the consultation of the website, with the exception of those that are indicated as "Product Unavailable" and except for any unexpected stock outage. In the latter case, if the user has already placed any order, he will be informed of the eventual unavailability of any article. This information will be given no later than the date of actual dispatch of the order. In the case of an order that has already been paid, O CESTO ARTESANATO will refund the User in the amount paid for items not available under the terms indicated in 8.3.3. The fact that a product is shown on the website does not imply that it is available for sale; therefore, O CESTO ARTESANATO does not assume any obligation to make it available.

The prices and specifications of each reference may change without notice.

In the event of an error as mentioned, O CESTO ARTESANATO is responsible for notifying the User of any differences and the user has the right to cancel or modify his order or to proceed with it taking into account the correct prices that have been transmitted to him, not being given the right to purchase the product for the price that would be wrongly indicated.
