Section 1 - General Terms and Conditions of Sale (GTC) for online purchases
The offer and sale on the Website of Vouchers and Experiences constitute a distance contract governed by Chapter I, Title III (art. 45 et seq.) of the Consumer Code and Legislative Decree 9 April 2003, no. 70, containing the rules of electronic commerce.
Article 1.1: Procedure for placing orders and drawing up the contract
Article 1.1.1: Registration of the order
The Purchaser can make online purchases of Vouchers and Experiences exclusively via internet on the Site https://www.dolomiti.it
The procedure for placing orders on the Site involves, in particular, the following steps:
- The Buyer selects and configures autonomously, one or more Holiday Vouchers / Value Vouchers or Experiences on the Site.
- The Buyer must proceed with the order by creating and/or connecting to his account by clicking on the link provided for this purpose (Login / Register).
The creation of an account gives access to a personal space that allows the Buyer to manage his personal data, Holiday Vouchers / Value Vouchers or Experiences (See Article 1.1.2).
- The summary document, which contains all the choices and the total price of the selected Vouchers or Experiences, the details, any shipping costs as well as the method of payment, will allow the Buyer to check all the details of his order and then make any necessary changes, before the final registration of the order.
- The registration of the order will be made after acceptance of these GTC.
- The sale shall be considered final only after acceptance of the means of payment used and collection of the full price of the Holiday Voucher/Voucher or Experience by DESTINATION S.r.l.
For payments by credit card, the contract will be definitively concluded after the bank has accepted the payment.
DESTINATION S.r.l. reserves the right to refuse or cancel orders from Buyers with whom there is a dispute regarding payment of a previous order that has remained unpaid, or in the event of serious suspicion of a fraudulent order.
DESTINATION S.r.l. will send an email confirming the online Purchase to the Purchaser, which will include all information relating to the same. By printing and/or storing this email, the Buyer will have a means of proof of the order placed.
The e-mail confirming the Purchase must be kept by the Buyer. This email will be requested by DESTINATION S.r.l. as a means of proof of Purchase in the event of problems of non-activation of the Holiday Coupon/Voucher or Experience.
Article 1.1.2: Buyer's account
The Buyer guarantees that all the information he provides to DESTINATION S.r.l. is accurate and free from any misleading character.
The Buyer agrees to update his information through his personal space in case of change.
The Buyer is informed and agrees that the information entered for the purpose of creating or updating his account is valid as proof of his identity.
The information entered by the Buyer binds him since their confirmation.
Buyer agrees to maintain the confidentiality of its account username and password.
The Buyer also agrees to use a unique password for this Site and to change it regularly.
Any intervention carried out with the Buyer's username and password will be considered carried out by the Buyer and the Buyer will remain solely responsible.
The Buyer therefore expressly relieves DESTINATION S.r.l. of all responsibility in the event of abusive or fraudulent use by third parties of their identification elements and/or their account.
In the event of loss, theft or any fraudulent use of his username and/or password, the Purchaser must immediately inform DESTINATION S.r.l. in order to obtain replacement of the access credentials. Proof of identity will be requested (for which reason the accuracy of the data entered during registration is essential).

Article 1.2: Prices and conditions of payment
Article 1.2.1: Prices
The prices displayed on the Website of the Holiday Vouchers and Experiences are those in force on the day of the order and include VAT at the applicable legal rate.
Any shipping costs are not included in the price, unless explicitly indicated by DESTINATION S.r.l.. These costs are invoiced in addition and indicated before the final confirmation of the order. Shipping costs are subject to VAT at the applicable legal rate.

In order to protect the Buyer and DESTINATION S.r.l. from fraudulent practices, orders of Holiday Vouchers and Experiences are regularly checked.
DESTINATION S.r.l. may suspend processing of an order and contact the Buyer or Beneficiary to obtain supporting documents necessary to release the order: e.g. proof of address, identity or bank details. These documents must correspond to the personal details entered at the time of the order and, if necessary, to the details of the holder of the payment card used.
For an order with a delivery address that differs from the invoicing address, DESTINATION S.r.l. may contact both the persons indicated for the purpose of checking.

Article 2.1: Conditions of use of the Experiences
Article 2.1.1: Gastronomy and alcohol
The Beneficiary is informed that when the Benefit included in a Vacation Voucher/Voucher or Experience includes a meal, the menu of the same is agreed in advance between the organizer and the restaurant/hotel.
The Beneficiary will not be able to choose the meal freely from the restaurant/hotel's "a la carte" menu unless the organizer explicitly agrees.
Booking is compulsory and serves to guarantee the availability and quality of the service. Please contact directly the organizer listed in the voucher.

Article 2.2: Duration of validity of the Experiences
The Holiday Vouchers and the Experiences may have a different period of validity according to the rules defined by the organizers of the experiences published on the Site. The date of validity is indicated in the PDF and on the Site.
DESTINATION S.r.l. reserves the right to integrate and/or modify the list of Experiences or to cease their distribution at its sole discretion and unquestionable judgement at any time.
In case it is no longer possible to provide an already purchased and valid Experience, the organizer will propose to the Beneficiary a method of exchange or refund.
Article 2.3: Online booking of stays and package tours
Article 2.3.1 Booking of stays
To take advantage of the Holiday Vouchers it is necessary to contact directly the organizer reported in the voucher to check the availability of rooms and to reserve them. The reservation is required and serves to ensure hotel availability in the desired period.
Article 2.3.2 Package tours
The European Directive 2015/2302 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 November 2015 relating to package tours and related tourist services, transposed in Italy within the Tourism Code with Legislative Decree no. 62/2018; may concern certain Benefits proposed in the Holiday Vouchers / Value Vouchers or Experiences.
When the Service chosen by the Beneficiary can be classified as a Tourist Package, the Beneficiary will be informed of this through the Website, prior to his or her online reservation confirmation. At this time, he or she will receive all pre-contractual information required by the Tourism Code.
For matters related to any health formalities applicable to the Tourist Packages marketed by the organisers and sold through the Website, the Beneficiary is invited to keep up to date with the current regulations by informing himself/herself on official channels such as http://www.salute.gov.it/ and https://www.governo.it/it/ in order to know all the recommendations and obligations related to any health risks in the country.
Finally, again with regard to Tourist Packages, DESTINATION S.r.l. informs that the organizer shall be exclusively responsible, within the limits and under the conditions established by articles 32 et seq. of the Tourism Code, as "seller".
In case of contractual default in the execution of the Performances framed as Tourist Packages the responsibility will be of the organizer to whom is entrusted the technical direction (where required by law). In this way the Beneficiary will always have a reference in case of difficulties related to the execution of the Service.
It is understood that neither DESTINATION S.r.l. nor the organizer will ever be liable for non-fulfillment or inexact execution - in whole or in part - of the chosen Service if they are, in whole or in part, attributable to the Beneficiary or to a case of force majeure, in accordance with the provisions of article 43, paragraph 3, of the Tourism Code.
