As regards the items under request (samples, special products, etc.) the minimum quantities, the prices and the delivery terms will be agreed each time. The samples of shapes and colours given by the Customer will be previously checked by Terrecotte Poggi Ugo srl which will confirm their suitability for the production of the item.

SHIPPING AND RISK
The products are always shipped at buyer's risk and peril, also when the products are delivered free of charge and also if the shipping is covered by insurance, being understood that each shipping is made on specific behalf of the Customer. Therefore it is up the Customer to make the due qualitative and quantitative controls on delivery, to write on the shipping document each anomaly, to let it countersign by the courier and to inform the Terrecotte Poggi Ugo srl immediately also in writing, in order to enable to exercise the redraft right. The terrecotte Poggi Ugo reserves the right to choose the Courier without the constitution of a derogation to the above mentioned rules. In any case, any kind of refunds, damages or compensations for non-respect of the delivery term are excluded.

PACKING
The containers and the packing materials are intended to be definitively sold together with the products, with the prices and the terms in force when the goods are shipped. In each case the withdrawal and the disposal of the empty containers and/or the semi-finished products are charged to the product's user.

The claims on the product's quality must be received by the Terrecotte Poggi Ugo srl within 8 days from the goods' receipt. If the claim is well-founded, the Terrecotte Poggi ugo srl will replace the goods at its expenses and it will not give any other refund. The claims on the received quantity, that is on broken items, are not acceptable if made after more than 7 days after the receipt and if they have not been written on the shipping document of the Courier, specifying the quantity and the kind of challenged goods. Claims on prices written on the invoice and/or payment terms and/or anything else written on the invoice must be made within 8 days from the document's receipt. Claims for goods flaws will be admitted only if made according to the law (art. 1495 of "Codice civile").

We do not accept items back without our written authorization. All the above mentioned claims made after the set terms do not give any right of non-payment to the Customer.
