All products sold by Diadora are covered by the legal warranty for non-conformity in accordance with the applicable legislation.
Unless otherwise provided for by law, the Legal Warranty is valid for 2 (two) years from the date of delivery of the products and covers non-conformity of the Product at the time of purchase. If the non-conformity becomes apparent within the first 6 (six) months from delivery of the product, it is assumed - unless proven otherwise - that it already existed upon delivery, unless this assumption is incompatible with the nature of the goods or the nature of the non-conformity.
In order to make use of the warranty, the Customer must notify Diadora of any defect in the Product purchased within 2 (two) months of its discovery, under penalty of invalidity and unless otherwise provided for by law, by sending an e-mail to Customer Care at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the free-phone number on the days and at the times indicated on the Website. Any action seeking to claim non-conformity which has not been fraudulently concealed by Diadora will be prescribed, in any event, within 26 (twenty-six) months from delivery of the Product.
In the event of non-conformity, the Customer may initiate the procedure for the return and refund of the non-conforming Product without further expense.
In order to benefit from the conformity warranty, it is advisable to keep and show the purchase documents of the product. For further information on the legal warranty of conformity for consumers, as well as to benefit from the remedies provided by the legal warranty in relation to products purchased from Diadora, the Customer may contact Customer Care at email@example.com or by calling the free-phone number on the days and at the times indicated on the Website.
Upon receipt of the report, Diadora will arrange for the collection of the defective product at its own expense. The products must be returned to Diadora with all the accessories included in the packaging and properly packaged. Diadora will refund the Customer within a period not exceeding 14 (fourteen) days of the return of the Products.
13. Force majeure
Diadora cannot be held liable if it is unable to process the order or if it is delayed due to force majeure (by way of example but not limited to, production stoppages imposed by legislative or administrative measures, epidemics, strikes, severe weather events, fires or floods), even if such events prevent or delay the activity of the courier in charge of delivering the product ordered.
14. Applicable law and competent court
These Conditions of Sale are governed by Italian law with specific reference to the regulations on distance contracts and other regulations applicable in Italy in relation to sales outside business premises, as well as in relation to e-commerce, without prejudice to the application of different binding provisions.
For civil disputes, the Judge of the place of residence or domicile of the Customer has the exclusive jurisdiction, in accordance with the Italian law in force at the time of conclusion of the contract.
