These terms of sale apply without prejudice to the general conditions of sale of the Website (the “General Conditions”); in case of conflict between the contents of these conditions and the general conditions, these conditions shall prevail. For the purposes of these conditions of sale, the definitions set out in the General Conditions apply where they are not reiterated and/or derogate from this document.

1. THE "LAVAZZA DA TE" PROGRAM
The “LAVAZZA DA TE” program is a form of subscription whereby the Customer, on signing a supply contract pursuant to Article 1559 of the Italian Civil Code et seq., undertakes to purchase (and Lavazza undertakes to supply) a certain quantity of coffee capsules and/or other products, from those that Lavazza makes available for purchase through this channel, at predetermined intervals of time and in accordance with the pre-established terms clearly specified during the application procedure.
By joining the Program, the Customer agrees that Lavazza will automatically generate a number of subsequent Purchase Orders, which will be issued at predetermined intervals as indicated by the Customer upon application (every 2, 4, 8 or 12 weeks) for the entire duration of the agreement. These Terms of Sale will apply to purchases made through the aforementioned automatic purchase orders, subject to the preconditions.
The Customer joins the Program by completing an electronic registration procedure, the stages of which are clearly described in the pages of the Website and the related texts and graphics.
The Customer who joins the Program can decide the frequency of automatic purchase orders (every 2, 4, 8 or 12 weeks) and the products that they wish to receive with each order. The Customer can see the settings of automatic and recurring orders (e.g. order frequency and ordered product) at any time, but cannot, however, change these settings once the contract has been signed. If the Customer wants to change the frequency or assortment of the products purchased on subscription, the existing subscription may be cancelled and a new subscription made, using the same procedure followed for the first subscription.
Registration to the Website is required for anyone wanting to join the Program; you will be asked to enter your "username" and "password", otherwise it will be impossible to proceed with the conclusion of the supply contract and your participation in the Program.
The advantages and prerogatives of the products purchased through the Program cannot be added to those arising from other initiatives and/or promotions launched by Lavazza, unless otherwise provided for in the rules of such initiatives. However, the Customer may also purchase one or more products with the first Order with which they have joined the Program. In this case, the special conditions provided for the Program (including but not limited to the absence of shipping and delivery costs irrespective of the amount of the order) will also apply to the products purchased upon joining the Program.
The agreement for joining the Program will be deemed to be completed and will become fully binding for the parties by 12:00 am on the day on which the customer joins the Program.
2. SUBSCRIPTION DURATION – CANCELLATION
Joining the program and the consequent supply contract are deemed to have been agreed on for an undefined duration. However, the Customer may terminate the subscription freely and at any time (this possibility of unilateral withdrawal will be hereinafter referred to as “Cancellation”), with the only limitation specified below: the subscription may be terminated only after the second delivery of products purchased through the Program has been made by Lavazza and paid for by the Customer. The Cancellation must be done by sending an email notification to the following address email@example.com or, alternatively, by registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt to the following address: Customer Service Lavazza - Via Bologna, 32 - 10152 Turin, with at least 10 (ten) days’ notice. The deliveries scheduled until the effective date of Cancellation will however be completed by Lavazza and the Customer will be required to pay the corresponding amounts. After the expiry of the 10-day period, the Cancellation will become fully effective and Lavazza will no longer be required to supply any products to the Customer, nor shall the latter be liable for any payments under these Terms of Sale as part of the Program.
Lavazza reserves the right to terminate the contract pursuant to Article 1456 of the Italian Civil Code in the event of non-payment of products by the Customer under the agreed terms. In such cases, Lavazza will give the Customer a minimum of 10 days’ notice, and will, in any case, undertake to complete all deliveries scheduled prior to the date of termination and duly paid for by the Customer.
Lavazza reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to terminate the “Lavazza da te” Program at any time for reasons of commercial advantage. In such case, Lavazza will formally notify the Customer of its withdrawal from the contract with at least 10 days’ notice, and will, in any case, undertake to complete all deliveries scheduled prior to the date of termination and duly paid for by the Customer.
