Terms and conditions of sale
Orteat provides for additional services or subscriptions available upon
payment of a fee.
The fees, duration and conditions for the accounts and paid services are highlighted in the relevant section of Orteat.
Each order sent constitutes an offer to purchase the products. Orders are
subject to availability and to the Owner’s discretionary acceptance.
Users must select the products and complete the check-out, after having attentively verified the information in the order summary. The order is placed by the confirmation of the same, and is subject to payment of the price, taxes and shipping and further payment fees indicated in the order summary.
The Order Processing Receipt does not constitute acceptance of the order. The order shall be confirmed at the time the Order Confirmation is sent by the Owner to the email address provided by the User. The Owner reserves the right to invalidate an order by informing the User within 5 business days of placing the order, using the email address associated with their purchase, about the unavailability of one or more of the purchased products. In this case, the Owner will refund the price and the delivery costs incurred by the User.
Methods of payment
Orteat uses third-party tools for its payment processing and is not connected with any of the provided payment information – such as the credit card – in any way.
Any declined payment costs shall be borne by the User.
Authorization for future PayPal payments
When paying via a PayPal account, during the purchase, Orteat will store an identification code assigned to the customer's PayPal account, therefore authorizing Orteat to an exclusive use linked to future purchases.
This authorization can be revoked at any time, either through the interface of Orteat or directly by contacting the Owner.
Deliveries are made during normal business hours at the address indicated
by the User and in the manner specified in the order summary.
Upon delivery, the User must verify the contents specifying any anomalies in the delivery form.
In case of failure to collect the products by the deadline set by the carrier, the products will be returned to the Owner, who won’t refund the purchase price but not the shipping cost. The Owner cannot be held responsible for errors in delivery due to inaccuracies or incompleteness in the completion of the purchase order by the User, for any damage occurring to products after delivery to the carrier company where arranged by the User or for delays in delivery attributable to it.
The delivery date stated at the moment you make the order is indicative and will depend on whether the third party seller (producer) is able to prepare the orders on time. As orders contain food products, it is highly probable that natural factors may modify this delivery date. The delivery date cannot be considered a contractual commitment. For the purpose of these Conditions, “delivery” or “delivered” shall be deemed to have occurred when you or a third party nominated by you acquires physical possession of the products, which will be endorsed by the signing of the receipt confirmation at the agreed shipping address.
Once the third party seller (famers) has prepared all orders, shipping times may also vary due to factors beyond our control (e.g. rain, mist, wind or any other weather conditions and non-weather conditions which can delay the courier) which can lead to relevant delays in shipment and which will not constitute justification for penalization or for holding Orteat civilly liable on contractual and non-contractual grounds.
If you sign the delivery receipt without stating its nonconformity in the Proof of Delivery, we will not accept claims with regards to manifest defects.
If you receive a delivery without manifest defects, but products turn out to be unsuitable for consumption, that is with hidden defects, you will have to report this incident as soon as possible (and always in less than 14 days following the delivery) to Orteat via the following email address: email@example.com attaching photographs of the products and explaining your claim in detail.
Retention of title
Until the complete payment of the price of the products ordered, the products remain the property of the Owner.
Availability of products
Prices, descriptions or availability of the products on display are subject to change without notice. The photos posted are for representation purposes only and may not be an exact representation of the product. The Owner will do its best to present the characteristics of the products with the greatest level of detail permitted by Orteat in each tab corresponding to the product viewed by the User. However, images and colors of products offered for sale on Orteat may differ from the real ones due to many factors, including, by way of example, User's device monitor, photographic filters, etc. Therefore, the User acknowledges and agrees that any such minor differences do not constitute a lack of conformity of products.
The Order is completed in accordance with the details specified on the order summary page and within the Order Confirmation email, subject to availability of the product ordered. The Owner shall not be liable for damages suffered as a result of delays in delivery which are not dependent on circumstances foreseen by the parties at the time of the order confirmation.
Right of withdrawal and guarantee
Right of withdrawal
In the case of orders which include perishable products, you cannot request a withdrawal from the purchasing contract nor any refund for the amount paid.
In the case of an order with non-perishable products, you are entitled to fourteen (14) calendar days after receipt of the order to request withdrawal from the purchasing contract and the reimbursement of the amount paid for the products which have not been consumed.
To exercise your right of withdrawal, you must notify Orteat of your decision to withdraw from the contract through a clear statement (e.g. a letter sent by postal mail or an email):
• Email address for notifications purposes: firstname.lastname@example.org
To meet the withdrawal deadline, it is sufficient for you to let us know about your decision to withdraw from your order, before the withdrawal period expires.
Until the selling party receives the product, we cannot assume its ownership. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to reimburse the purchase price without requesting its return. In such a case, the ownership of the reimbursed product will not be transferred to the selling party.
Effects of withdrawal
Users who correctly withdraw from a contract will be reimbursed by the Owner for all payments made to the Owner, including those covering the cost of delivery (except for the additional costs arising from a possible choice of a certain type of delivery other than the standard delivery method, which would have incurred lower delivery costs) without undue delay and in any event no later than 14 days from the day on which the Owner is informed of the User’s decision to withdraw from the present contract. Reimbursements will be made using the same means of payment as used by the User for the initial transaction, unless the User has expressly agreed otherwise; in any event the User shall not incur any additional costs as a result of such reimbursement.
The reimbursement may be withheld until reception of the goods, or until the User has supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest. The User shall send back the goods and return them to the Owner without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which the User communicated his/her intention to withdraw from the contract. The deadline is met if the User sends back the goods before the 14 day period has expired. The User is solely liable for any diminished value of the goods resulting from the handling of the goods other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.
Limitations on the right of withdrawal
Products returned damaged, or used beyond what is necessary to establish
their nature, characteristics and inherent functions will be refunded after a
deduction of the decrease in value resulting from such damage or use. No
refunds will be given when the decrease in value equals the total value.
The User is asked to return the goods attaching a copy of the delivery slip received.
The right of withdrawal is excluded in all cases relating to:
· Goods made to specifications or clearly personalized;
· Goods which are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly;
· Sealed goods which are not suitable to be returned for reasons of hygiene or the protection of health, if such goods were unsealed after delivery.
If one of the above exceptions is applicable to the goods purchased, the User may not exercise the right of withdrawal.
Applicability of the right of withdrawal
The clauses referring to the exercise of the right of withdrawal and its consequences and exceptions, shall apply exclusively to those Users who qualify as consumers, i.e. Users who are acting for purposes which can be regarded as outside their trade (or entrepreneurial activity) or profession.
Indemnification and limitation of liability
The User agrees to indemnify and hold the Owner and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, agents, co-branders, partners and employees, as the case may be, harmless from and against any claim or demand, including without limitation, reasonable lawyer's fees and costs, made by any third party due to or arising out of the User’s content, use of or connection to the Service, violation of these Terms, or violation of any third-party rights.

In particular, the Owner, within the limits of applicable law, is liable for contractual and non-contractual damages to Users or third parties only by way of intent or gross negligence, when these are immediate and direct consequences of the activity of Orteat. Therefore, the Owner shall not be liable for:
· any losses that are not a direct consequence of the breach of the Agreement by the Owner;
· any loss of business opportunities and any other loss, even indirect, that may be incurred by the User (such as, but not limited to, trading losses, loss of revenue, income, profits or anticipated savings, loss of contracts or business relationships, loss of reputation or goodwill, etc.);
· damages or losses resulting from interruptions or malfunctions of Orteat due to acts of force majeure, or at least to unforeseen and unforeseeable events and, in any case, independent of the will and extraneous to the Owner's control, such as, by way of example but not limited to, failures or disruptions of telephone or electrical lines, the Internet and / or other means of transmission, unavailability of websites, strikes, natural disasters, viruses and cyber attacks, interruptions in the delivery of products, third-party services or applications; and
