For all other Products, shipping costs are to be paid by the User.
- Product selection and purchasing method
2.1 The information and details given on the Website should not be considered as offers: they are simply an invitation to Users to do business by sending purchase orders. The proposal to purchase Products is formulated by the User at the moment the order form is sent in electronic format at the end of the procedure provided by the Website and described below.
2.2 The User will be able to proceed with the selection of Products as described in the appropriate sections, by selecting them individually, customising them, and adding the required quantity to the shopping basket. Some images may be provided for information purposes only and may differ from the appearance of the delivered Product.
2.3 Unless the User opts for images or designs suggested by Packstyle for certain Products, once the order has been confirmed and the payment has been completed (with the exception of bank transfer payment options), the User will be asked to complete the order by uploading the file/artwork they wish to print.
2.4 The user remains solely responsible for verifying the content, spelling and artwork of the uploaded files.
2.5 After selecting the desired items, an order checkout screen will be displayed showing the costs and total order value for all the Products and/or Services selected.
2.6 Once the order has been sent, the User will receive an order confirmation that describes the type of Products ordered, the price of each Product, the corresponding taxes, the shipping costs and the payment method chosen. The contract is considered concluded and binding when Packstyle sends the order confirmation to the User at the email address s/he provided.

- the information provided by the User when filling in the order form being incomplete or incorrect;
- the User not meeting the requirements for the terms of payment;
- the Products ordered not being available.
In the examples listed above, Packstyle will inform the User by email that the order proposal was not accepted (in full or in part), specifying the reasons for the non-acceptance, and that the contract was not therefore concluded.

3.1 Users can purchase Services online and make payments using the payment methods indicated on the Website, by following the instructions provided for their chosen payment method.
The information required for payment will be forwarded using cryptographic protocols to the payment institution entrusted by Packstyle with the processing of remote electronic payments, without any third party being able to access the information. Payments must be made in advance, and only once the payment has been made and a "print-ready" file has been uploaded by the User will the selected items will be sent for production.
3.2 For payments via bank transfer, production will begin only after payment is received, and as a result, delivery may be delayed by 2-3 days, in addition to the time needed for printing and shipping the items.

3.3 The receipt (or invoice) will be made available to the User in a dedicated section of the My Account area: it is the responsibility of the User to access this area, print the document and store it in accordance with applicable legislation. While with reference to the unregistered User, the receipt (or invoice) will be sent to the email address indicated by the latter when sending the order.

4.1 The selection of content and images to be printed, as well the obtaining of authorisation for their reproduction, where necessary, is the sole responsibility of Users.
4.2 Packstyle cannot in any way be held liable for the unauthorised use of images by Users or for any breach of third-party rights relating to them.
4.3 The User therefore releases, indemnifies and holds harmless Packstyle from any liability towards third parties for breach of intellectual property rights, damage to image, honour, decorum, moral integrity or any monetary or non-monetary damage resulting from the printing of images and content uploaded by the user.
4.4 The User declares to know and undertakes to comply with the technical specifications on the Site in relation to the composition and permitted use of the materials that make up the Products. The User assumes full responsibility in this regard and therefore exonerates Packstyle, also undertaking to hold Packstyle harmless, from any liability, including by way of pecuniary or non-pecuniary damage, for incorrect use or non-compliant of the Products with the technical specifications by the User or by third parties.
4.5 The User declares to be aware of the provisions on (i) environmental labeling and indications for the collection of packaging waste provided for by art. 219 of Legislative Decree 3 April 2006 n. 152 and the related penalties provided for their violation by art. 261 of Legislative Decree 3 April 2006 n. 152 (the text of this regulation can be found at the following link) and on (ii) marking for single-use plastic products provided for by Directive (EU) 2019/904 (the text of this regulation can be found at the following link). Furthermore, the User declares to take note of the fact that Packstyle makes available on its Site, in correspondence with each type of material, the information concerning the environmental labeling (in particular the reproduction of the pictogram with mention of the appropriate code), so providing the User with adequate information about the activities to be implemented. The User therefore (a) undertakes to fully comply with the regulations mentioned in the use and marketing of the Products, taking care that the contents and images to be printed bear the correct and necessary references on the subject, (b) assumes all responsibility in this regard and (c) therefore exonerates Packstyle, also undertaking to hold it harmless, from any liability, damage (patrimonial or non-pecuniary) cost or penalty, deriving from non-compliance with the aforementioned legislation.
4.6 In any case, Packstyle will not proceed with the verification of the contents except for what concerns the graphic compatibility with the requested specifications. Packstyle reserves the right, at any time, to stop any order which clearly breaches the intellectual property rights of third parties or which is defamatory, violent or otherwise contrary to public law and decency, or which are found to be in violation of the obligations borne by the User referred to in the previous articles 4.4 and 4.5.
Automatic checking of uploaded files
5.1 Packstyle's system automatically checks compatibility with regards to the format, dimensions, resolution and the presence of non-embedded fonts, checks the fonts and their conversion into paths, checks for any white overprinting or knockout, and converts Pantone colours to the best profile for the print requested (the system does not indicate Pantone colours present in the file, but converts them directly to CYMK).
5.2 If the file is not compliant, the system will block the order. In this case, the User will be advised immediately via email and asked to upload a new file, with a resulting delay in the delivery date.
If the system does not reveal any problems, the file will automatically be sent for production.

Delivery dates are valid for most parts of any given country. Islands and more remote areas could require two or more additional working days.
