14.- All product prices are clearly indicated on the Site and are inclusive of VAT. They do not include any additional and different taxes, duties or duties arranged by the relevant applicable legislation, such as those provided for in the matter of importation.

It is understood that the charge on the credit card is made only when the order is “Ready for shipment” (when the system has ascertained the availability of the products ordered for their shipment), KmEdizioni will arrange for the delivery of the products purchased in accordance with and subject to their actual availability. In the event that more products are ordered with different availability times, delivery will take place when the available product is also ready for shipment.

18.- If the delivery times of the product ordered are delayed with respect to the delivery times indicated on the Site before the order, KmEdizioni undertakes to promptly notify the Customer via an e-mail message to the address indicated by the Customer.
