Warranties and Customer Service
11.1. The consumables are presumed to be in conformity with this Agreement if, where applicable, the following set of circumstances exist: a) they are fit for the purposes for which products of the same type are normally used; b) they comply with the description given by Mantra and possess the quality characteristics of the product which Mantra made available to the Customer as a taster or sample; c) they offer the quality and benefits that are typical of products of the same type and which the Customer can reasonably expect, given the nature of the products and, where applicable, taking into account any public statements on the specific characteristics of the products made in such regard by Mantra, the producer or by its agents or representatives, particularly in advertisements or on labels; d) they are also fit for the particular purpose for which the Customer requires them and which the latter made known to Mantra at the time of the conclusion of the Agreement and which Mantra accepted, whether explicitly or implicitly.
11.2. The Customer shall forfeit all applicable rights if he/she fails to notify Mantra of any lack of conformity within a time limit of 7 (seven) days commencing from the date upon which the defect was discovered. Such notification shall not be required if Mantra acknowledged the existence of the lack of conformity or refrained from disclosing it.
11.3. Except where proven otherwise, it shall in any event be assumed that any lack of conformity that comes to light within 7 (seven) days of the date of delivery of the product already existed at that date, unless such assumption is incompatible with the nature of the product or the nature of the lack of conformity.
11.4. In the event of any lack of conformity, the Customer shall be entitled to request, free of charge, and on the terms and conditions set forth herein below, either the replacement of the product purchased or a reduction of the purchase price or the termination of this Agreement, unless the meeting of such request would objectively be impossible or excessively onerous for Mantra within the meaning of Article 130, paragraph 4, of the Italian Consumer Code.
11.5. Any such request must be delivered to Mantra in writing, by means of a registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt slip and the latter shall notify the Customer, within 7 (seven) working days of the receipt of the said request, of its willingness to comply therewith or of the reasons that prevent it from doing so.
If Mantra agreed to meet the Customer’s request, it shall inform the latter, in the same notice, of the procedure for the delivery or return of the product as well as of the estimated timeframe for the return or replacement of the defective product.
Obligations of the Customer
12.1. The Customer undertakes to pay the price of the products purchased within the timeframe and by one of the methods specified in the Agreement.
12.2. After having completed the online purchase procedure, the Customer shall print and keep a copy of this Agreement.

Grounds for termination
14.1. The obligations undertaken by the Customer referred to in Clause 12.1 as well as the guarantee of the successful collection by Mantra of the payment made by the Customer by one of the means of payment referred to in Clause 5.1 are of the essence and, therefore, it is expressly agreed by the parties that the breach of even one of the afore-mentioned obligations only will give rise to the termination of the Agreement by operation of law in accordance with Article 1456 of the Italian Civil Code, without any need for a court ruling, unless any such breach was brought about by a fortuitous event or a case of force majeure.
