USE OF OUR WEBSITE

By placing an order via this website, you warrant that you are of legal age and possess the legal authority to enter into binding contracts.
MODALITIES FOR THE COMPLETION OF THE CONTRACT
The information provided in these terms and conditions and the details contained on this website only constitute an invitation to make a contractual proposal and do not represent an offer to the public. There shall be no contract between you and VARIABLE K regarding any products until your order is explicitly accepted by VARIABLE K. In the event that your offer is not accepted and your account has already been debited, the amount will be refunded in full. To place an order, you will have to follow the online purchasing process and click on 'Proceed with order'. You will then receive an email confirming receipt of your order. However, this does not imply acceptance of your order as it only represents an offer on your part to purchase one or more products.
PRODUCTS AND PRICES
The products that are the subject of the contractual agreement governed by the General Terms and Conditions of Sale are all the items visible on the website, in particular clothing products, handicrafts, accessories and gift-cards (hereinafter the "Products"), present on the website at the time the order is placed. Only Products available on the Site may be ordered. In the case of promotional offers with a certain duration, the Customer must pay attention to the time limits of their validity.
The sale price of the Products offered on the Website, indicated in euros (unless otherwise specified), is the price in force at the time the order is registered by the Customer. Prices include the VAT rate applicable on the day of the order, and any change in this rate will automatically be applied to the price of the Products sold by VARIABLE K on the website.
The price does not include shipping costs, which are added to the price of the Products purchased and vary depending on the amount of the order. Shipping costs will be indicated before the order is registered by the Customer and therefore before proceeding to payment, for Eu and Extra EU shipments VARIABILE K reserves the right to recalculate shipping costs at a later date if necessary.
The sale prices of Products may be modified by VARIABILE K at any time, it being understood that the price applied to the contractual relationship with the Customer will be the one in force and published on the website at the time of registration of the order by the Customer.
Any purchase intention that may involve a special tax regime requires prior approval by VARIABLE K before the order is placed. Please send your request by e-mail to email@example.com. Customer Service will contact you with the necessary documentation. VARIABLE K will check the prerequisites for the application of the requested tax regime and notify the customer of the suitability. Only after this confirmation will the customer be able to place the order and notify Customer Services.
3. Characteristics of the Products
The Products that are the subject of the contractual agreement governed by these General Terms and Conditions are all the items visible on the website when the Customer places his order. In accordance with articles 52 and 53 of the Consumer Code, VARIABLE K provides consumers with information on the Products and makes consumers aware of all the main characteristics of the Products offered (sizes, colours, composition, description, etc.) and the price, including taxes and duties.
Prior to ordering, the Customer may have access on the Site to the essential characteristics of the Product(s) he/she wishes to purchase. Furthermore, the characteristics of the Product(s) will be visible through a photograph published on the Site that illustrates the product(s) as faithfully as possible. The photograph is not part of the contractual relationship between the parties. The Customer acknowledges that the photograph of the Product on the Website is indicative. Modifications may be revealed due to the processing of the photograph(s).
The availability of the Products on sale on the website is automatically updated. However, since the Website can be visited by several users at the same time, it is possible that simultaneous purchases result in a Product indicated as available being in fact just sold out. In such cases, a communication will be sent to the Customer's e-mail address, and the amount paid by the Customer (price of the product and delivery charges if applicable) will be refunded. VARIABLE K reserves the right to change the product assortment according to the obligations arising from its relations with its suppliers. For more detailed information, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Products on sale or promotion will be recognisable by special icons and easily accessible from the HomePage. The duration of the promotion or offer will be specified from time to time by promotional emails (Newsletter) or special graphics on the HomePage.
REFUSAL TO PROCESS AN ORDER
We reserve the right to remove any product from the website at any time and to remove or edit any material or content on the website. We always endeavour to fulfil all orders, however, in exceptional circumstances we may have to refuse to process orders after we have sent the Order Confirmation, and we reserve the right to do so. We will not be liable to you or any third party for the removal of any product from the website, for the deletion or modification of any material or content on the website, or for any failure to process an order after the Order Confirmation has been sent, insofar as this is legally possible.
