1) Ordering methods
The online-shop's product representation does not constitute the binding offer, but serves as an online catalogue. After having examined the characteristics of a product and after having added the last to the cart, you will be asked to enter your data (including the customs authorization for international orders) or, eventually, to correct misleading information.
By clicking on the "cart" icon, you'll have the possibility to choose the desired quantity of a product. However, you will be able to eliminate products from the cart, at any moment. The actual order process will be launched after you click on the "submit" button. This process consists of several passes, within which you'll have to insert your personal data, to specify the method of payment and the destination address. Only after confirmation of each point of the written-above information, the purchase process can be held as concluded. By clicking on button "send the order", you'll activate your order. Next, you will receive a confirmation of receipt of the order, that won't represent yet its definitive acceptance. In fact, only after you receive an order confirmation email on behalf of Karner S.n.c., your order can be considered actually accepted and valid. In case you want to cancel a sent order, you'll have the possibility to do it, however, you should give us timely notice (within 12 hours).
2) Customer profile and registration
Creation of your customer profile is supposed to be the first and the only personal data entry. Thus, you will be registered as a Business Customer and you'll be asked to enter your private password. Shortly after registration, your customer profile will be approved. In this way, you will always have the possibility to consult the dedicated area with price-lists. The inserted data will be memorized, and you won't have to enter it again, except the password, for your future orders.
In order to protect your privacy, we will treat your personal data with much discretion. On your request, however, the registered data can be eliminated at any moment (see the Personal Data Protection Code, law 196/2003).

Delivered products will always be accompanied by a transportation document, containing all the information related to the order (order number, purchaser's personal data, a list of ordered items, quantity and value, total order price, as well as all the indications on shipping, methods of payment, etc.).
We inform our dear customers that product shipment to the European countries, including Switzerland, requires a special customs authorization (payment of a special consumption tax, and indication of the PGI number, released by the customs of Switzerland). For a small supplement, we will personally obtain all the necessary authorizations for you.
In case of loss of your order, you will be able to require a copy via email, fax, or phone.

The ordered products will be sent directly to your domicile, by courier or by post. We do not send ordered products to post-office boxes or general delivery departments.
Currently, we serve our clients in Italy, Germany, Austria, and some other European countries. If a product has to be shipped to Switzerland, please, send us your order, indicating the desired quantity of the product, the delivery address and your telephone number. We will contact you directly.
The delivery will be effectuated by post or by courier to your domicile or at any other address, indicated by you.

In order to speed up the shipping process, please, indicate your phone or cell phone number. If products, ordered by you, are not available or partially available, you will be informed in a timely manner. In these latter cases, we reserve the right to deliver only the available part of the order, or else to cancel the whole order.
Normally, ordered products are sent within a few working days since the receipt of the bank transfer. Nevertheless, we kindly ask you to be patient, if - due to an event of force majeure - you will have to experience a longer waiting time.
Despite accurate checks and security precautions, goods can be damaged during transport. The couriers we rely on, instead, dispose of insurances in conformity with law 286/05 for national transports, and of the CMR insurances for international transports. This, in case of any doubt, you are advised to sign the received goods "unchecked".
Any shortage or damage must be properly indicated in a delivery note, and communicated to us within 24 hours. Only in this way, we will be able to make reimbursement arrangements.
If a destination country requires taxation of ordered goods, the amount of this last, as well as all other duties, will be at the expense of the purchaser.
