The verification of weight and dimensions mentioned above, may also be performed after the acceptance of the request for the Service and in the absence of the Customer himself. The result of the matching, carried out with third-party certified systems, shall be authentic in the relationship between the Parties, and the Customer expressly accepts the result of the measurement and weight carried out by Alfred24, and is obliged to accept the possible imposition of the payment of the relevant difference.

- where applicable in view of the type of Service offered, Alfred24’s liability for risks of loss of or damage to the goods during transportation is governed by Art. 1696 c.c.

12. Limitation and Exclusion of Liability Claims
Complaint for damage, loss or deterioration of the goods covered by the Service that cannot be found at the time of delivery should be reported to Alfred24 Customer Care, through form at the link https://alfred24.it/segnalazioni-e-reclami/ within 7 calendar days from the date of delivery by Alfred24 or within the different terms, where having mandatory character, provided by the applicable regulatory provisions for the type of transport (ex.: 7 calendar days from receipt of the shipment if the carriage is by land, within, to or from a country signatory to the Convention on the Contract for the International Carriage of Goods by Road 1956 (CMR); 21 calendar days from receipt of the shipment if the carriage is by air, within, to or from a country signatory to the Warsaw Convention (1929) or the Montreal Convention (1999), depending on the regulations mandatorily applicable).
Beyond the above time limits, no claim can be made against Alfred24.
Subsequent to the first report, and no later than the statute of limitations prescribed by law or applicable conventions, the Customer must fully document the claim by submitting all relevant information, under penalty of forfeiture.
In order for a damage claim to be considered, the goods covered by the Service and the original packaging must be made available to Alfred24 for inspection.
Except as otherwise provided by any applicable convention and/or law, the right to file a claim shall be extinguished unless legal action has been formally commenced within 12 months from the date of delivery of the goods covered by the Service or such other date on which the Customer or third party could reasonably have become aware of the loss, damage, or delay.
No claim will be found until all storage and transportation costs and charges have been paid.
No amount regarding claims may be deducted or offset by the Customer independently against the storage and transportation costs and charges due to Alfred24.
13. Waivers, failure to release and storage
Notwithstanding Articles 1685, Paragraph 1, 1686 and 1690 of the Civil Code, in the event that the carriage at the expense of the carrier cannot be carried out and/or the shipment cannot be delivered, the Customer will be informed by Alfred24, on behalf of the carrier, as soon as possible, in the manner provided by the Service. Information on the status of the Service is also available on the Alfred24 website at the link https://alfred24.it/tracking/ or via customer service chat.
If the delivery is refused or it is impossible to find the consignee or the Parcel Shop is not working, Alfred24 will request instructions from the Customer or will return the shipped goods upon payment of all charges and expenses, without prejudice to the carrier’s right to apply Art. 1686 c.c.
The Customer waives all rights to the parcel if, after 12 months of storage, no person, upon presentation of the Label, has given instructions or collected the same upon payment of any charge or expense.
Alfred24, in such a case, is authorized as of now by the Customer, also on behalf of any other person who may have an interest, to dispose of the property, including for charitable purposes, in favor of national or international bodies, institutes or foundations, discretionarily chosen.
If the need arises, Alfred24 may keep the goods in storage at its own premises or store them at third-party warehouses or general warehouses.
Except as otherwise stated in the description of the specific Service, the Customer, if requesting the return of the shipment or its redelivery, shall give concrete and actionable instructions. In the absence of timely concrete and actionable instructions, Alfred24 will guard the parcel without, however, assuming any responsibility for their safekeeping.
In any case, after the period stipulated in the explanatory services annex referred to in the relevant sales form has elapsed (in the absence of references, 15 days), they will be returned to the sender, at his or her risk and expense. The Customer agrees to indemnify and hold Alfred24 harmless from any and all claims, expenses, fines, and penalties in general and/or for damages however arising from the foregoing. The Customer is also responsible for the payment of all costs and expenses related to the shipment (including, but not limited to, duties, customs duties, and any taxes or fees) and the costs incurred in returning the shipment to the Customer and/or storing it.
After a further 5 days in the absence of instructions from the customer, Alfred24 may proceed to the recovery of the claims encumbered on the shipment, including by application to the competent authorities for the sale or assignment of the goods lying in stock pursuant to Articles 2756, 2761, 2797 and 2798 of the Civil Code, without prejudice to and without prejudice to any other rights and costs of the customer not recovered.
The Customer also declares that he/she assumes all responsibility for the non-declaration of the contents, for the absence or insufficiency of postage for the transport of packages or parcels, and agrees to hold Alfred24 harmless from any related consequences, including against third parties.
Each Service must be prepaid at the time of entering into and upon acceptance of the terms and conditions of the Service, unless different commercial terms and conditions apply, which the parties will have agreed to in a separate document.
The Customer expressly agrees that, in the event of late payment of even a single invoice more than 10 days beyond the agreed deadline, Alfred24 may exercise its right to suspend any type of Service.
The Customer will be able to choose between the different payment methods:
- Pre-paid digital wallet
- Bank Transfer
In the event of late payment of even a single invoice, or in the presence of other prerequisites that may jeopardize, in the sole discretion of Alfred24, the solvency of the Customer, suitable guarantees for the payment of fees may be required for the activation/reactivation of the Service.
Where provided for in the relevant business proposal, accepted by the customer, Alfred24 may charge surcharges for specific Services.
Late payments will result, at the discretion of Alfred24, in the application of interest calculated in accordance with D. Lgs. n. 231/2002, as amended and supplemented, as well as the application of any other measures provided for in the aforementioned legislation on late payment of commercial transactions.
The Customer also expressly declares himself to be a debtor pursuant to and in accordance with Articles 2944 of the Civil Code and 642 co. 2 of the Code of Civil Procedure for the amounts due for the Services rendered by Alfred24.
It is without prejudice, however, to the right to proceed to the recovery of debts in the time and manner provided for by the pro-tempore law in force, without prejudice to the right to compensation for any greater damages resulting from the non-performance.
The Parties mutually acknowledge that should the goods delivered to Alfred24 be sent abroad, the shipper may be subject to import duties and taxes, payable once the package reaches the specified destination. Any additional cost of customs clearance will be borne solely by the Customer. Alfred24 has no control over these costs and cannot predict their amount. Customs policies vary considerably from country to country and the Customer should, therefore, contact the local customs office for further information. The Parties also mutually acknowledge that cross-border deliveries are subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities.
16. Insurance and limits on recourse action
For goods deposited at a Parcel Shop with a domestic destination, without prejudice to Alfred24’s exclusion of liability as set forth in these General Conditions and/or the various documents approved by the Parties, the Customer shall be entitled to expressly request the conclusion, in its favor and at its expense, of an appropriate insurance guarantee to cover damages resulting from transportation, beyond the limits established by law and by these General Conditions. In such a case, the Customer will provide any information necessary to secure the shipment, subject to the limitations set forth in the sales form and additional forms regarding the chosen Service. The Customer agrees to use appropriate forms (e.g., specific Label for deposits with insured shipments), if any. Failure to comply with the above will result in Alfred24 being released from liability regarding insurance coverage. Said guarantee, shall be governed by the contractual conditions of the contracting insurance company.
For the purpose of determining damages, however within the limits provided herein, for shipments subject to online purchases, in addition to the documentation of the origin of the goods, as a rule, a copy of the transaction that took place between the parties (order, bank transfer, credit card, etc.) is also required, and that in any case the prescriptions agreed with or prepared by the insurance company will apply. Shipments that are not the subject of sale and purchase (transfer of goods between individuals), can be insured only if in possession of appropriate tax documentation capable of determining their value (original invoice, receipt, etc.), and the insurable value will be the value of the goods at the time of shipment. The damage, if any, is the difference between the value of the goods as defined above and the value of the goods in the condition they are in following the loss. In the event of damage to or loss of any repairable part of the property, compensation will cover only the value of the damaged or lost part even if it has not been separately appraised. Only the cost of repair or replacement of the part itself will be recognized in such a case, excluding any depreciation of the belonging asset.
If, on the other hand, the Customer arranges for the deposit and shipments to be insured directly with a company he or she trusts, he or she is required to agree to the express provision of the clause whereby the Company waives claims against Alfred24. It is understood that if the Customer’s insurance company nevertheless acts in recourse or in any other capacity against Alfred24, the Customer shall indemnify and hold Alfred24 harmless from any amount that the latter is required to pay by virtue of such actions. Any recourse action may not, however, under any circumstances exceed the limits set forth in these general conditions. It is understood that, in the absence of insurance coverage, all damages will be directly assumed by the Customer on its own, given the aforementioned exclusion of liability of Alfred24. For transportation outside the country of origin, the above applies.
17. Delivery Time and Delivery Services
Carriers cooperating with Alfred24, as a rule, execute deliveries based on predefined plans that, in most cases, allow for performance within the SLAs stipulated by the delivery services. However, no strict contractual deadline for delivery is fixed in favor of the Customer or in favor of any other party who may have an interest in the shipment.
With reference to the generality of the Services offered, the carriers who normally cooperate with Alfred24 do not assume the obligation of peremptory delivery within the terms and times indicated, unless this has been expressly agreed upon by means of a special deed signed by a person with appropriate powers. Any indication otherwise agreed or affixed in relation to delivery times/methods (e.g. “urgent”, “by…”, “by the hours…”) on the Label or other suitable document, shall have no legally binding value, even if accepted or countersigned by Alfred24’s appointees lacking the power to change the contractual conditions and/or the delivery methods and times.
The Customer, therefore, assumes all risk and consequent responsibility in the hypothesis of entrusting shipments containing documentation to be delivered to the addressee within peremptory terms or times, and accepts that Alfred24 is exonerated from any and all responsibility for delays and in any case is liable for them within the limits set forth in art.11 of these general conditions.
18. Prohibition of assignment and right of withdrawal
The customer is prohibited from assigning or transferring, in any form, the contractual relationship with Alfred24 without Alfred24’s prior written consent. Purchased Services are likewise not transferable even individually.
The Parties may terminate this agreement at any time by giving 60 days’ notice in writing. Nothing will be due to the other Party as consideration for the withdrawal, except payment for the Service performed by Alfred24 on the effective date of withdrawal.
19. Reference to the Service Charter, applicable law and place of jurisdiction
In case of conflict between the provisions of these General Terms and Conditions and those of the Alfred24 Service Charter (available at the alfred24.co.uk website), the latter will prevail.
The applicable law is the law of Italy, with the exclusion of conflict rules.
For any dispute, the Court of Udine will have exclusive jurisdiction, except for different mandatory forums provided by the legislation applicable from time to time.
