In this case, the Customer / Sender will provide all information necessary to ensure shipment, without prejudice to the limits set by the sales conditions and the additional forms regarding the chosen service.

The Customer undertakes to use appropriate forms (eg specific waybill for deposits with insured shipments), if any. Failure to comply with the aforementioned requirements will result in INPOST exemption from liability for insurance coverage.

This guarantee will be governed by the contractual conditions of the stipulating insurance company.

21.2. For the purpose of determining the damage, however within the limits set forth herein, for shipments of goods subject to online purchases, in addition to the documentation of origin of the asset, a copy of the transaction between the parties is also required (order, bank transfer, credit card, etc.) and that in any case the Insurance Company reserves the right to request, in the preliminary stage, any claim. Shipments that are not the object of sale (transfer of goods between individuals), can be insured only if in possession of appropriate tax documentation to determine the value (original invoice, receipt, etc.) and the insurable value will be constituted by the value of the goods at the time of shipment. 

Any damage is constituted by the difference between the value of the goods as defined above and that of the goods in the condition in which they are found as a result of the accident.

In the event of damage or loss of any repairable part of the asset, the compensation will only cover the value of the damaged or lost part even if it has not been assessed separately. In this case, only the costs of repair or replacement of the part will be recognized, excluding any depreciation of the asset to which it belongs.

21.3. In the event that, instead, the Customer / Sender provides to ensure the deposit and shipments directly with a company of his own trust, the same is required to agree the express provision of the clause with which the Company waives recourse actions in the comparisons of INPOST. It is understood that if the Customer / Sender’s Insurance Company acts in any way in recourse or in any other way against INPOST, the Customer / Sender will keep unharmed and indemnify INPOST from any sum that the latter was required to pay by virtue of such actions . In any case, the revaluation action cannot, in any case, exceed the limits set out in these general conditions. 

It is understood that, in the absence of insurance coverage, all damages will be directly assumed by the Customer / Sender on his own, given the aforementioned exclusion of responsibility of INPOST.

For transport outside the country of origin, the above applies.

 

22 – DELIVERY TIMES – GUARANTEED TIME SERVICES

22.1. Carriers that normally cooperate with INPOST, as a rule, make rapid deliveries based on predefined plans that, in most cases, allow the performance of the service within the foreseen working days. However, there is no fixed or mandatory contract term for the delivery, in favor of the Client / Sender or in favor of any other person who can claim an interest in the shipment. 

With reference to the generality of the services offered, the carriers that normally cooperate with INPOST do not assume the obligation of the obligatory delivery within the terms and times indicated, unless this has not been expressly agreed through a specific deed signed by a subject entitled with suitable powers. Any indication otherwise agreed or affixed in relation to delivery times / methods (eg “urgent”, “by …”, “within hours …”) on the waybill or other document, will have no binding legal value, even if accepted or countersigned by INPOST representatives without the power to change the contractual conditions and / or the methods and delivery times.

The Customer therefore assumes all risks and consequent responsibilities in the case of assignment of shipments containing documentation to be delivered to the recipient within peremptory terms or times.

22.2. The responsibility of INPOST for any damage as a consequence of the delay is expressly excluded. 

 

23 – CONVENTIONAL DECADENCE

Unless otherwise specified, the actions relating to individual deposits by the Customer must be exercised, under penalty of forfeiture, within 6 months, starting from the day on which the delivery of the item to the place of destination.

The terms indicated in the sales form for exercising the rights of the Customer / Sender for the individual services (eg reimbursement request) are considered essential. Failure to comply with the same will result in forfeiture of the right itself.

The Customer, by signing these general conditions, waives the exertion of any non-contractual actions deriving, in hypothesis, from the execution of the services.

 

24 – APPLICABLE LAW – JURISDICTION

The law applicable to the services in question is the Italian law.

For any controversy, the Court of Milan will have exclusive jurisdiction.

 

25 – CONSUMER

25.1. In the event that the Customer is ascribable, according to current legislation, to the category of “consumer”: (i) the competent court will be that due to the domicile elected by the Customer, if located in the national territory; (ii) the clauses that, according to the current pro tempore legislation, were possibly considered null and / or ineffective must be considered expunged from the text, without prejudice to the effectiveness of the remaining clauses referred to in these conditions.
