These General Terms and Conditions of sale, the Purchase Orders and the Purchase Agreements shall be governed by the laws of Italy and, in particular (where applicable), by Legislative Decree No. 206 of September 6, 2005 (the Italian Consumer Code).

Any dispute arising in connection with a Purchase Order or a Purchase Agreement shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Court of the Consumer-Customer’s place of residence or domicile, if located within the State. On the other hand, for any dispute arising with Business Customers, the general rules on jurisdiction set forth in the Italian Civil Code shall apply.

Consumer-Customers may also choose to promote an out-of-court settlement of the disputes pertaining to a Purchase Order or Purchase Agreement by implementing the procedures set forth in part V, title II-bis of the Consumer Code (see Article 66, paragraph 5 of Legislative Decree No. 206 of 2005).
