- Method of purchase – Order acceptance / Conclusion of the Agreement
4.1. Customers may order only products available in the electronic catalog available on www.babywow.it at the time of the order, as they are described in the relevant information sheets. The technical information included in http://www.babywow.it is provided by the respective manufacturers of the goods. BabyWow, therefore, reserves the right to change the technical information of the products in order to adapt it to those provided by the manifacturers, without the need for any prior notice. It is understood that the technical information (product data sheet and the picture accompanying the descriptive sheet of a product) may not be perfectly representative of the characteristics of the products, thus henceforth exonerating BabyWow from any liability regarding any differences that the customer may find between the data sheet (available on the website) and the product physically received.
4.2. By placing the order, the customer transmits to BabyWow a proposal to purchase the selected product or products. Placing the purchase order implies consent to receive from BabyWow any subsequent communications, aimed exclusively at the conclusion and execution of the sales Agreement. The correct order is confirmed by BabyWow via e-mail response, sent to the e-mail address provided by the Customer. The response is generated automatically by the system and cannot be considered in itself acceptance of the order, but only confirmation of receipt thereof. This confirmation message will contain the Date and Time of placement of the order and an 'Order Reference Number', to be used for any further communication with BabyWow. The message will show all the data entered by the Customer; it is the Customer’s responsibility to verify their correctness and promptly communicate any corrections, in the manner described in this document. If received correctly, the order can be viewed by the Customer on the website of BabyWow in the "Personal Area" section.
4.3. BabyWow reserves the unquestionable right to accept the customer's purchase proposal. The Agreement entered into through the website shall be deemed concluded when the Buyer receives, via e- mail, formal confirmation of the order, with a notice. The Agreement is concluded at the place where the registered office of the Seller is located. In case of non-acceptance of the order, however, BabyWow will promptly notify the Customer by e-mail.
4.4. All prices on the site are intended to be public prices and, therefore, include vat, but do not include shipping costs. BabyWow reserves the right to change the prices at any time, without prior notice.
4.5. Unavailable or incoming products. Through its website www.babywow.it, BabyWow gives the possibility to all users, even those who are not registered, to be informed, via automated email, when a product of their interest returns to stock.
Should the Customer wish to be informed about the re-assortment of a desired product, it will be necessary to provide a valid email address and click on the button “Notify me when a product becomes available again” next to the product listed as unavailable.
4.6. The order is shipped only when all the requested products are available. Therefore, partial shipments are not made.
4.7. The return of products for any reason other than an obvious manufactoring defect, not attributable to either BabyWow or the customer, has a cost of 10.00 €. In case of return, the amount previously spent will be refunded in the form of a "Voucher" that can be spent again on BabyWow.it. In case of a defective product, BabyWow undertakes to replace it at its own expenses. No type of reimbursement other than a Shopping Voucher of the same value is available.
- Cancellation/Return and Replacements

- Payment methods
6.1. Credit Card Payment

The amount relative only to the goods processed, even partially, will actually be charged to the Customer's credit card only after the shipment of the goods by BabyWow.
Credit cards accepted are all those that lean to the Visa and Mastercard circuits.
In case of order cancellation, either by the Customer or in case of non-acceptance from BabyWow, will result in the request to cancel the transaction and the release the amount committed. The time of release, for some types of cards, depends solely on the banking system and can go up to their natural expiration (typically 24-25 days from the authorization date). Once the cancellation of the transaction has been made, Babywow can under no circumstances be held liable for any damages, direct or indirect, caused by delay releasing the funds held by the banking system.
In case the Customer's order is processed after the expiration date of the authorization, BabyWow will contact the customer before the order is processed to request a new debit authorization or to agree on different payment methods.
BabyWow reserves the right to ask the Customer for additional information (e.g., landline telephone number) or to send copies of documents proving ownership of the Card used. In the absence of the requested documentation, BabyWow reserves the right to decline the order.
For further guarantee and security of the Customer, at no time during the purchase process is BabyWow able to know any information relating to the buyer's credit card, transmitted via secure connection directly to the website of the banking institution handling the transaction. No computer file of BabyWow will retain such data. Under no circumstances, therefore, can BabyWow be held responsible for any fraudulent and improper use of credit cards by third parties when paying for products purchased from BabyWow.

In case of prepayment, and only after checking for the availability of the goods, Babywow will notify the Customer by e-mail with the instructions for completing the payment.

The order will be shipped only after the actual view of accreditation.
It is necessary for the buyer to specify the order reference number in the reason for payment.
Cancellation of the order, either made by the Customer or in case of non-acceptance of the same by BabyWow, will result in the simultaneous request of the order cancellation and the release of the amount paid. Time of release may vary from 2 to 3 working days. Once order has been refunded, under no circumstances can BabyWow be held liable for any damages, direct or indirect, caused by delays releasing the funds held by the banking system.
6.3. Payment via PayPal
Paypal payment is only available for holders of a Paypal Account; transactions by Credit Card or prepaid cards not associated with any Paypal account will be reimbursed.

The amount related to the order is charged on the PayPal account at the time of order acquisition.
6.4. In case of cancellation of the order, either by the Customer or in case of non-acceptance of the same by BabyWow, it will be required to cancel the transaction and release the committed amount. In no event shall BabyWow be liable for any damages, direct or indirect, caused by delays releasing the funds held by the PayPal system. At no time during the purchase process is BabyWow able to know the Customer's financial information. Since there is no data transmission, there is no possibility of this data being intercepted.

- Failure to collect the package – termination of the Agreement

At the time of repayment, any fidelity points credited will be lost, and any discount codes used will not be restored.
16.6 In case the Seller is not in the condition to reimburse the price paid, due to incompatibility of the payment method used at the purchase with an automatic credit, the Buyer will be asked to provide the bank details on which to receive the refund. After 10 days without a response, the Seller will issue a purchase voucher of the same value of the price to be refunded and send it to the Buyer's contact addresses.
