This acceptance is considered tacit, unless otherwise communicated in any way to the Customer. The Customer declares that he has not entered false or fictitious data in the order form, and therefore declares that the data entered correspond to his own. Casa delle Piante reserves the right to prosecute any violation and abuse in the appropriate forums. The obligations assumed by the Customer as well as the guarantee of the successful completion of the payment procedure carried out by the Customer, are of an essential nature for Casa delle Piante, which reserves the right, in the event of non-fulfilment of one of the aforementioned obligations, to terminate the contract by law, without prejudice to any right to compensation for damages.
