- The agreement between Drop S.r.l. and the Customer is understood to be concluded with Drop S.r.l's acceptance, or partial acceptance, of the order. This acceptance is considered tacit if the Customer is not otherwise notified by any means. By making an order using the various methods provided, the Customer declares that he has read all the information provided to him during the purchasing procedure, and fully accepts the general conditions and terms of payment transcribed below. The present General Terms and Conditions of Sale, as published and accepted by the Customer at the time of purchase or when registering on the Website, exclusively and specifically govern every purchase made through the website between the Seller and Customer, regardless of their nationality.

- The Customer may only purchase the products contained in the electronic catalog managed by Drop S.r.l at the time the order is made, viewable online at the (URL) address shop.ducati.com, as described in the relative information tabs. It is understood that the image accompanying a product's description may not be fully representative of its characteristics and may differ in color, size, and the accessory products shown. All the information supporting the purchase is understood to be simple, generic, informative material and does not refer to the real characteristics of an individual product.

The message includes all the data entered by the Customer, who undertakes to check their accuracy and promptly notify us of any corrections, according to the procedures described in this document. We always endeavor to ensure the accuracy of the information posted on the website but the extent of the catalog and the amount of information it contains entail the possible risk of a technical issue that could generate a different sales price from the actual one. We thus reserve the right to cancel an order if a price is incorrectly posted and our Customer Service will advise the Customer and provide him with the correct information.
- If the order is not accepted, Drop S.r.l will promptly notify the Customer, reimbursing any sums already paid in the shortest possible time and, in any case, within 14 days of the aforementioned notification.

6.1 If the order is canceled, either by the Customer or in the case of its non-acceptance by Drop S.r.l, cancellation of the transaction will simultaneously be requested by Drop S.r.l..

For the issuance of the invoice, the information provided by the Customer at the time of the order will prevail. Once the invoice has been issued, the data cannot be modified. We thus advise the Customer to check the data entered carefully before placing the order.
If the invoice is not requested at the time the order is made, in no cases can it be issued retrospectively.
The Drop S.r.l.sales system, as an online seller, does not require the issuance of an invoice (or tax receipt) to a consumer (not possessing a VAT number), in accordance with Article 22 of the Decree of the President of the Republic no. 633 of 26/10/1972 and Article 2, letter oo) of DPR no. 696 21st December 1996 (as confirmed by Resolution no. 274/E of 5th November 2009). If an invoice is not requested by the Customer, Drop S.r.l. will send the buyer a purchase receipt, not valid for tax purposes and useful solely for assistance or warranty purposes, via the e-mail or residential address indicated when signing up.
- Delivery costs are charged to the customer and are explicitly shown when the order is placed. Payment of goods by the Customer will take place using the method chosen when placing the order. The Customer owes nothing more than the order total.
- The availability of the products sold is limited to the availability of the products themselves and is a condition for the validity of the offers. If stock is sold out, even temporarily, Drop S.r.l. has the right to reject the customer’s purchase request by means of formal notification via e-mail, in which any available products may also be indicated as substitutes of an equal or greater price to the ones purchased, with payment by the Customer of any difference in price. Unless the customer requests to purchase a product in substitution of the one out of stock, Drop S.r.l. will reimburse any sums already paid by the Customer in the shortest possible time and, in any case, within 14 days of the date in which the order was canceled. The requested products will be delivered in the shortest time possible, usually within 5-7 business days. Drop S.r.l.undertakes to comply with a maximum delivery time no greater than 30 days, except in cases of force majeure. The maximum delivery time is calculated from the contract conclusion date. In the case of delays of over 30 days, the Customer and Drop S.r.l. will agree upon a new delivery date if the Customer does not state his intention to withdraw from the contract of sale, notifying us of this via the contact form under the item Returns and Refunds.
- Unless explicitly indicated by Drop S.r.l..’s Customer Service, delivery is understood to be at street level. At the time of delivery of goods by the courier, the Customer is required to check: - That the number of delivered packages corresponds to those shown on the transport document sent in advance via email; - That the packaging is intact, undamaged, is not wet or otherwise altered, including its sealing materials (adhesive tape or metal straps). Any damage to the packaging and/or product or difference in the number of packages or indications must be contested immediately, placing GOODS RECEIVED UNCHECKED on the courier’s proof of delivery. Once the courier’s document has been signed, the Customer cannot make any objections regarding the external characteristics of the goods delivered. Any problems relating to the physical integrity, correspondence or completeness of the products received must be reported within 8 days of delivery via the Contact Us form, without prejudice to the Customer’s right to the legal guarantee of conformity referred to in point 21 below et seq. and to the right to withdraw, referred to in point 16 below et seq.

Right to withdraw

- The right to withdraw may be exercised within 14 days of receiving the product, using the following procedures: the Customer sends an e-mail addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org. For this purpose, the withdrawal form posted on the website under the item Customer Care, Returns and Refunds may be used but is not mandatory. The Customer must state the order number shown in the “order confirmation” on the return form received together with the delivery documents. The product must be returned to "Resi Ducati c/o PVS Service Italia Srl - Loc. Gainago, Strada A di Gainago 2/A, 43056, Torrile (PR)" within 14 days of the withdrawal date.

In case of return procedures for rescission from non-EU countries, both the shipping cost and the amount of taxes and duties for returning the product are charged to the customer.

- The right applies to the purchased product in whole; withdrawal cannot be exercised on only part of the purchased product (e.g. accessories, etc…);
- The purchased goods must be intact and returned in their original packaging, complete with all their parts (including packaging and any documentation and accessory equipment, manuals, etc…); to minimize damage to the original packaging, we recommend, when possible, to place it inside a second box, on which to affix the label provided by Drop S.r.l.., showing the RMA (return merchandise authorization) number; in all cases, avoid affixing labels or adhesive tape directly to the original product packaging;
- Until its certified receipt in our warehouse, the shipment is the customer’s complete responsibility;

Drop S.r.l. may suspend the refund until it receives the products or until the Customer provides proof of return of the products, if previous.
- Notwithstanding that the customer is solely responsible for a decrease in the value of goods resulting from the handling of the goods other than to establish their nature, characteristics and functioning, the right to withdraw is excluded in relation to:
- Damage to the product not caused by transportation.
In the case of forfeiture of the right to withdraw, Drop S.r.l. will give notification via e-mail; the product will remain available to the Customer at the Drop S.r.l. warehouse for a period of 30 (thirty) days from the date of the email. After this deadline, Drop S.r.l. will return the product to the Customer by courier. The delivery expenses and the price of the product, if already refunded, will be charged to the Customer.
- All products sold to the Customer via the Website are covered by the legal guarantee of conformity provided for in Article 128 et seq. of the Consumer Code ("Legal Guarantee"). In order to benefit from the guarantee, the Customer must keep and present the invoice (or the receipt or delivery note) they receive upon delivery.
- The manufacturer’s standard warranty is provided in accordance with the terms described in the documentation contained inside the product packaging. It is voluntary and does not replace, limit, exclude, or jeopardize the right to the Legal Guarantee of Conformity. The duration, territorial extent, procedures for use, types of damage/faults covered and any limitations to the Manufacturer’s Standard Warranty are items shown in the so-called warranty certificate contained within the product packaging.
- The Legal Guarantee may be exercised for any conformity defect present when the product is delivered, providing said conformity defect is reported within 2 (two) years from delivery of the product. The Customer must inform the Seller of the conformity defect by contacting Customer Services via email at email@example.com, providing a full and accurate description of the claimed defects or faults. Customer Services are then required to reply to the Customer with instructions on how to return the defective product.
The Customer may request, at their discretion, to have the product repaired or replaced at no extra cost, unless the remedy chosen by the Customer is objectively impossible or excessively expensive compared to the other option, taking into consideration all circumstances and, in particular, those listed in Article 135-bis, paragraph 2 of the Consumer Code.
Ducati may refuse to resolve the conformity defect by either repairing or replacing the product if repairing or replacing it is impossible or if the costs involved are excessive, taking into consideration all circumstances, including those listed in Article 135-bis, paragraph 2, letters a) and b) of the Consumer Code.
The Customer may request, at their discretion, an appropriate discount or termination of the Contract in the following situations: (i) Ducati does not repair or replace the product or does not repair or replace the product, where possible, pursuant to Article 135-ter, paragraphs 1, 2 and 3 of the Consumer Code, or refuses to resolve the conformity defect pursuant to the previous paragraph; (ii) the product still presents a conformity defect despite an attempt made by Ducati to restore conformity of the product; (iii) the conformity defect is serious enough to justify an immediate discount or termination of the sales contract; (iv) Ducati declares or it is clear from the circumstances that Ducati is not going to restore conformity of the product within a reasonable period or without notable inconvenience on the Customer's part. It is understood that the Customer does not have the right to terminate the contract if the conformity defect is minor.
Once the product has been returned and has been checked, if it indeed presents a conformity defect, any transport, repair or replacement costs shall be borne by Ducati. Otherwise, if the product is checked and no conformity defect is present or there are no grounds to enforce the Legal Guarantee, the Legal Guarantee shall not apply and the Customer will be informed that they shall now be responsible for all transport costs, as well as all costs related to verifying the alleged conformity defect.
The Customer acknowledges and accepts that any defects or damages that result after the goods have been delivered, such as those caused by improper use of the product by the Customer or a third party, shall not be covered by the Legal Guarantee.
- No damages may be claimed from Drop S.r.l. for any delays in carrying out repairs or replacements.
- For cases in which the application of the guarantees involves the return of the product, the goods must be returned by the Customer in their original packaging, complete with all their parts (including packaging and any documentation and accessory equipment: manuals, accessories, etc…); to minimize damage to the original packaging, we recommend, where possible, placing it inside a second box; in all cases, avoid affixing labels or adhesive tape directly onto the original product packaging.
