3.7 The Customer acknowledges and agrees that the availability of the Products sold on the Website refers to the actual availability at the time of purchase.

In this case, the Products will be purchased by the Customer, whose order is processed first by the Website system.
In this case, SACE will send the Customer whose order has been registered in second place an email as soon as the latter detects complete or partial lack of the Products. If this happens, the Customer may withdraw from the sales contract within 14 (fourteen) days from receiving the aforementioned e-mail, by sending a notice by registered mail with return receipt, certified e-mail, or fax, with the Customer's obligation to return, at his or her own expense, the Products already received and OLEOBI's obligation to reimburse the amount received from the Customer, without any compensation for damage or indemnification of any kind in favour of the Customer.

4.6 The Customer acknowledges and accepts that SACE will proceed with the delivery of the Products only following the actual collection of the price, suspending the delivery in case of non-payment or non-regular payment of the price by the Customer in the ways and times provided for in Article 5 below.
4.7 SACE cannot be considered liable for the failed or delayed delivery of the Products due to force majeure, unforeseeable circumstances and a justified reason, such as, by way of example, strikes, riots, unrest in the workplace, lack of raw material, lack of electrical energy, fire, machine downtime and any other cause beyond the control and diligence of OLEOBI, (including the delays of the subcontractors), which prevents or makes the delivery on time prohibitively expensive.

If payment is made by bank transfer, after clicking on “I confirm my order” field, the Customer will receive an e-mail containing the bank details for the transfer, which must be arranged immediately so that the sum is credited to SACE’s current account within 5 days from the completion of the sales contract.
5.3 If payment of the price is not made within 5 (five) days from the term mentioned above in Article 5.2, SACE will have the right to withdraw from the sales contract, with written communication to be sent by registered mail with return receipt, certified e-mail, or fax, without the need for formal notice.
