5. PURCHASES

 

All items purchased from GiorgioPiola are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier.

Discounts are calculated using pricing information provided to us by merchants (such as suggested retail prices from the manufacturer, supplier, or the merchant, or an estimated price based on standard industry practice). Because the pricing information we base our discounts upon may vary, discount information that we display may or may not be representative of the exact discount offered in every area, on a particular product, on any particular day.

Items marked “Final Sale” cannot be returned. We sell these products as “Final Sale” to maintain such significant discounts. If you are concerned that you may wish to return an item, please check whether it is “Final Sale” prior to making your purchase.

support@GiorgioPiola.com within 48 hours of receiving the shipment. If you do not report the damage to us within this 48 hour period, we may not be able to honor your claim. Please note that there may be additional circumstances under which we will not be able to honor your return.

We can ship to virtually any address in the world. However, there are restrictions on some products, and some products cannot be shipped to certain international destinations.
