However the images and colours of the Products for sale on the Website may be subject to variations according to the browser and/or monitor used. CANALI is not responsible for any discrepancies in the visual representation of the Products that cannot be avoided through reasonable technical measures.
CANALI reserves the right to remove any Products from the Website at any time and/or to delete or change any material or contents thereof. CANALI is not responsible towards Clients or third parties for the removal of any Product from the Website.
Before completing your purchase, the Client is responsible for ensuring that the items in the virtual Shopping Bag are accurate, and to enter any promotional code, where applicable, in the dedicated section.
To complete the Order, any Client who is not already registered or does not desire to be registered with the Website, or who may have decided to make a purchase without logging in, is required to enter an e-mail address, either directly or through third party services, such as Facebook Connect. CANALI is not responsible for the operation and the activities linked to the use of said services.
The Client will then be required to indicate an invoice address, to which CANALI will send the purchase invoice, and to fill out all the related fields. Indicating an invoice address is mandatory in Italy for purchases of 3.600 Euro and above.
The Client must then select a shipping method and indicate a shipping address, if other than the invoice address.

5. Products Availability
The Products offered in the Website are articles of clothing and accessories of the brand CANALI, available at the time when the Client places the order.
Products availability is constantly monitored and updated by CANALI. Nevertheless, since the website may be visited simultaneously by various Clients, it is possible that more than one Client purchases the same product at the same time. In these cases, the Product may appear as available for a short time, even though it is actually finished or not immediately available, since it is necessary to wait for new availability.
Should the Product prove unavailable for the aforementioned reasons or in other cases of unexpected unavailability of the Product, without prejudice to any other legal rights of the Client and, especially, to Book IV, Title II, Chapter XIV of Italian Civil Code, CANALI will immediately contact the Client at the indicated email address or phone number. The Client will therefore be entitled to terminate the contract. Alternatively, and without prejudice to the above right, the Client might accept one of the following CANALI proposals:
i. should the Product become available again: an extension of the terms of delivery, with indications, on the part of CANALI, of the new term of delivery of the Product;
ii. should the Product not become available again: the supply of a different Product, of equivalent or higher value, upon payment, in the latter case, of the difference, upon prior approval of the Client.
Should the Client decide to terminate the contract, CANALI will refund the amount eventually already paid by the Client without undue delay and, in any case, within 15 working days starting from the day on which of the order has been placed. The refund amount will be credited to the Client with the same form of payment used by the Client for the purchase.
6. Order Cancellation – Termination of Contract
The Client may cancel the Order by contacting the CANALI Customer Service by phone, exclusively before shipment of the Products. This cancellation right is additional to all statutory Cancel, Return, and Reimbursement rights.
If the Total Sum Due is not paid or if the successful outcome of the payment is not confirmed, the purchase contract shall be considered legally terminated pursuant to and in accordance with article 1456 of the Italian Civil Code. The Client shall be informed by e-mail of the contract termination and of the subsequent cancellation of the Order.

In case of PayPal payment, the Client will be redirected to the website www.paypal.com, where the Client shall make the payment for the Products according to the prescribed procedure regulated by PayPal and the terms and conditions of the contract agreed by the Client and PayPal. The data entered on the PayPal website will be processed directly by PayPal and will not be sent to or shared with CANALI. CANALI is therefore unable to know, or store in any way, the credit card details linked to the Client's PayPal account, or the details of any other form of payment linked to said account.
The Total Sum Due will be charged by PayPal to the Client's account at the same time as the conclusion of the online contract. In case the contract is terminated or in any other case of refunding, for any reason, the amount of the refund due to the Client ("Refund Amount") shall be credited to the Client's PayPal account. The term for crediting the sum on the payment tool linked to this account depends exclusively on PayPal and the bank system. Once the credit order has been arranged in favour of said account, CANALI shall not be deemed liable for any delays or omissions in the crediting of the Refund Amount to the client. For any such problems, the Clients shall directly contact PayPal.
All the payments made through the Website are routed through secure servers, administered online by the interested bank or providers, who are the only parties responsible for the automatic storage and processing, within a protected environment, of the Order payment information, including credit card details.
Should the direct or queued debit of the payments due by the Client be declined, for any reason whatsoever, the purchase contract shall be considered legally terminated pursuant to and in accordance with article 1456 of the Italian Civil Code. The Client shall be informed by e-mail of the contract termination and of the subsequent cancellation of the Order.
