The payment for the products purchased online by the customer will be made using the modality chosen at the side of the order. Nothing more will be due by the customer in relation to the total of the order shown at the end of the purchase procedure. In case of acceptance of the order for products to be delivered outside the Italian territory, the amount corresponding to the cost of the ordered products will be increased of any shipping charges, and of the taxes, if required by the legislation of the country of destination of the products purchased. Orders are invoiced in Euros and reflect the prices in Euro that are published on our website. To help customers in approximating the value, the prices are converted in the local currency.

a) In case of products purchased with payment by credit card, at the conclusion of the purchase online, the referring bank will authorize only the amount of the commitment relating to the purchase. The amount for the goods, even partially, or in pre-order will be actually charged to the customer’s credit card at the time of receipt of the summary of the order done via e-mail.
b) In case of withdrawal by the customer pursuant to D.Lgs. N. 206/2005, or non-acceptance of the order by Areadocks srl, this will mean, without delay, the cancellation of the transaction and of the committed amount.

In no case then Areadocks srl will be responsible for any fraudulent use and abuse of your credit card by a third party, upon payment of the products purchased on the site.
f) In case of payment of the amount due by the customer by credit card, Areadocks srl can not be considered responsible for the outcoming of the transaction, which depends exclusively on the third party service provider of online payments and that, in any case, will be chosen from among the main players in the sector at national level.
g) The customer aknowledges that the forwarding of the purchase order and the payment takes place through electronic communication networks and services whose correct working is not under the control of Areadocks srl and of which it can not be considered responsible.
h) In order to ensure better protection for purchases made online, Areadocks srl recommends customers to adhere to the services Verified by Visa or Mastercard Securecode, requiring a safety PIN code with which you can make your purchases safely.
i) To ensure safe purchases, Areadocks srl uses SSL ( Secure Socket Layer) technology. This technology encrypts and protects the data sent by internet. As SSL is enabled, it will appear at the top of the browser a padlock with the green address bar, and clicking it you will get information about the SSL digital certificate registration. In addition, at the top of the browser, the URL will begin with “https” instead of “http”. This will ensure the data protection for the page where the customer is located.
j) For the new customers Areadocks srl requires its own bank to contact the counterparty bank to verify the transaction, before the actual charge on the customer’s credit card. Such verification could cause some delay in the shipment of the first order. Payments made through the PayPal system with a verified account do not suffer delays for banking verification.
k) Areadocks srl reserves the right to require customers with the shipment of the goods in the same State of the invoicing of the goods.
a) In case of payment by PayPal card the customer will be able to make the payment of the order directly through your verified PayPal account.

b) Payments for orders of products from unverified PayPal accounts will be cancelled and consequently not satisfied by Areadocks srl.
