In any case, the weights, dimensions and volumes of the products are indicative; in addition, despite all reasonable efforts being made to ensure that the colors of our products are displayed as accurately as possible, it is impossible to provide any assurance that the colors displayed on the screen by the User reflect exactly those of the products being delivered.
