The Contract between the Supplier and the Customer is concluded exclusively through the Internet by means of the Customer's access to the address of this Website, where, following the procedures indicated in the relevant registration section, the Customer will subsequently formalise the proposal for the purchase of the Products offered for sale through the Website.
In order to make a purchase, the Customer must follow the following steps:

The Contract is considered to be finalised and effective between the parties only with the execution of the order and the issue of the relative invoice by the Supplier, the latter having the possibility, until that moment, to refuse the order. A hardcopy sales invoice will be issued by the Supplier and inserted inside the package containing the ordered Products.

If problems and/or irregularities are found in the telematic process of purchasing the Products by credit card, U.S. Sassuolo Calcio srl may carry out inquiries (such as, by way of example, but not limited to verification of credit card ownership and/or control of possible abusive use of the card, etc.). If at the end of this inquiry irregularities are found, U.S Sassuolo Calcio srl will not proceed with the order. In the event that no irregularities are found during the telematic process of purchase of the Products, US. Sassuolo Calcio srl will proceed with the order and will process the delivery of the Products, provided that there are no further elements to prevent this. If the conditions are met, any refund to the Customer will be made:
- by reversal of the payment by credit card, within 14 days from the date on which U.S Sassuolo Calcio srl was made aware of the cause generating the right to refund;
- by refund to the current account indicated by the Customer in the refund request if the Customer has paid for the Products by cash on delivery. The price of the Product will be re-credited within 14 days from the date on which the Supplier becomes aware of the cause generating the right to a refund, provided that the Customer has correctly indicated his/her bank details in the refund request.
5. Timing and method of delivery of the Products
U.S Sassuolo Calcio srl will deliver the ordered Products through couriers. The time taken to process the order may vary, from 1 to a maximum of 7 working days starting from the confirmation of the order and the receipt of payment of the goods, within which the Supplier will issue the invoice and consequently accept the order. In the event that the Supplier is not able to ship the Products ordered within this period, the Customer will be promptly notified by e-mail and/or telephone, indicating the term within which the order will be processed. It is understood that delivery times may vary depending on the country of destination and other factors that do not depend on the will of U.S Sassuolo Calcio srl.
6. Shipping and delivery costs of the Products
U.S. Sassuolo Calcio srl delivery terms are DDP (Delivery Duty Paid) to the Countries of the EC, therefore in these destinations the ordered Products will arrive directly to the delivery place indicated by the Customer in the order request, without the Customer having to pay any further amount than that already paid at the moment of the order being sent. For all other countries the delivery terms are DDU (Delivery Duty Unpaid), therefore the courier may present the Customer, upon delivery of the Products, with a separate invoice requesting payment of the duties and taxes required by the local authorities. For further information about shipping costs, duties and customs charges please refer to the section of the Website specifically dedicated to the shipment of the Products.
7. Responsibilities arising from transport
It is understood that the Supplier shall not be liable for any delay in the execution of the order or in the delivery of the products due to the carrier and for any damage caused to the goods during transport. U.S. Sassuolo Calcio srl will entrust to the carrier goods which are perfectly intact and that correspond with the order requested. Upon delivery of the Products by the courier, the Customer is required to check:
- that the number of Products delivered corresponds to what is indicated in the order confirmation sent by e-mail before shipment and on the carrier's delivery note;
- that the Product or packaging is intact as is not damaged, wet or altered;
In the event of any anomaly, the Customer shall not accept the goods and shall make a complaint directly to the carrier, indicating specifically which discrepancies he/she has found. In the absence of said declaration, the Customer shall not be entitled to raise any further objections regarding the existence of evident defects in the Products delivered.
7. Product Prices
All sales prices of the Products displayed and indicated on the Website are expressed in Euro (€) and constitute an offer to the public pursuant to art. 1336 of the Italian Civil Code and include VAT and any other taxes for delivery within the territories of an EC country. For deliveries to non-EC countries, as specified in point 6), the courier may request additional amounts from the Customer for local taxes and duties. The shipping costs will be indicated and calculated in the purchase procedure of the Products before the order is placed by the Customer and also contained in the web page summarising the order placed. The prices indicated for each of the Products offered to the public are valid until the moment the purchase order is submitted and indicated on the order summary web page. It is understood that the prices of the Products may be varied unilaterally and at any time by the Supplier, it being understood that the price of the Product indicated on the order summary web page made by the Customer will be binding between the Supplier and the Customer.
8. Product Availability
The Supplier ensures, through the telematic system used, the processing and execution of purchase orders for the Products. Should a purchase order exceed the quantity of the Products existing in the warehouse, the Supplier, by e-mail and/or telephone communication, will inform the Customer if the Product is no longer available or what the waiting time is to acquire the chosen Product, asking, in the latter case, whether or not the Customer intends to confirm the order. The Supplier's computer system confirms the registration of the purchase order as soon as possible by sending the Customer a confirmation by e-mail, which does not produce any legal obligation, since it is a simple summary of the order.
9. Limitation of Supplier's liability
The Supplier does not assume any responsibility in the event that it is unable to execute the order in the time provided for in the Contract due to unforeseeable circumstances or force majeure. The Supplier shall not be held liable towards the Customer, except in the case of wilful misconduct or gross negligence, for inefficiencies or malfunctions connected with the use of the Website, independent of the Supplier's will with regards its collaborators and/or sub-suppliers, which are beyond reasonable predictability and which cannot be remedied without precautions greater than those of standard diligence. In any case, any right of the Customer to damages or compensation is excluded, as well as any contractual or non-contractual liability for direct or indirect damages to persons and/or property, caused by the non-acceptance, even partial, of an order by U.S Sassuolo Calcio srl. The Supplier assumes no responsibility for any fraudulent or illegal use that may be made by third parties of the credit cards used to pay for the Products purchased, if he/she can prove that he/she has taken all possible ordinary precautions at the time and in accordance with ordinary diligence. Please note that U.S Sassuolo Calcio srl will not refund customised products.
10. Product Liability, Proof of Damage and Indemnifiable Damages
U.S Sassuolo Calcio shall not be held liable for any direct and/or indirect, contractual and/or non-contractual damage suffered by the Customer arising from defects and/or flaws in the Product if the defect and/or flaw is due to the conformity of the Product, to an imperative legal provision or to a binding measure, or if the state of scientific and technical knowledge at the time the manufacturer placed the Product on the market, did not yet allow the Product to be considered defective and/or flawed. It remains understood that no compensation shall be due if the Customer is aware of the defect and/or flaw of the Product and the danger resulting from it and nevertheless voluntarily exposes himself/herself to it. In any case, the Customer is responsible for proving the defect and/or flaw of the purchased Product, the damage and the causal connection between defect and damage suffered. The Customer is aware that the Products ordered are described and photo-reproduced on the Website, therefore, will tolerate the normal colour differences and discrepancies of the Products that will be delivered to him/her with respect to the Products viewed on the Website.
11. Guarantees and Assistance Modalities in favour of the Customer
The Supplier shall be liable for any defects and/or ascertained defect of the Product, provided this is attributable to the same and that such defect and/or defect has been reported by registered letter with return receipt to store.sassuolocalcio.it c/o U.S Sassuolo Calcio srl, via Giorgio Squinzi, 1 - 41049 Sassuolo (Mo) or sent by e-mail to store.sassuolocalcio.it within eight days of delivery of the Product. The complaint is not necessary if the Seller has acknowledged the existence of the defect and/or flaw or has concealed it. The Supplier reserves the right to ask the Customer for photographic reproductions of the Products allegedly defective and/or faulty before authorising returns and/or exchanges. In the event that the Products are defective and/or faulty, the Supplier shall bear the transport costs necessary to return the Products to its warehouses. Changes or returns of Products will not be accepted if they have been tampered with, worn, washed or otherwise altered by the Customer. It will be the Customer's responsibility to ensure the transport of the returned goods for exchange to the Supplier. In the event of theft or loss of the returned Products during transport to the Supplier, the goods will not be refunded. It remains understood that the Supplier will not accept returns of tailor-made or personalised Products (e.g. garments with names printed on them).
