The products purchased through Tucano International SA are protected by the manufacturer's warranty.

Any objections to defects in the goods may be submitted within the period of 8 days.

The above guarantee will not be applicable in case of negligence, carelessness in the use and maintenance of the product, connection of the purchased product to electrical systems or any other type of connection that does not comply with the standards.

11. BUYER’S OBLIGATIONS
The buyer is strictly prohibited from entering false data and/or that of third persons in the registration procedure necessary to activate the process for the execution of the contract and further communications. Tucano International SA will legally prosecute any violation and abuse, in the interest and for the protection of all consumers.

Tucano International SA reserves the right to terminate the contract entered into (the order), simply by notifying the Consumer of the same, with adequate and justified reasons; in this case, the Consumer will only have the right to the refund of any amount already paid.
The obligations assumed by the Buyer (see the paragraph “Buyer’s Obligations” above), as well as the guarantee of successful payment made by the Consumer in the manner established in the “Payment” paragraph are essential; therefore, non-compliance of the Consumer with any of these obligations will result in the legal termination of the contract, without the need for a judicial ruling, without prejudice to the right of Tucano International SA to take legal action in regards to compensation for any damages incurred.
14. TRANSACTION SECURITY
The Electronic Commerce software utilized by us makes use of the best information encryption techniques according to SSL (Secure Socket Layer) protocol, therefore all personal information and data related to the Consumer’s credit card are sent via the Internet and are therefore not available to be seen by indiscreet eyes.
It is possible for the user to use a Secure SSL Server, in a very transparent way, using the most updated version of: Safari, Netscape, Chrome, Internet Explorer or Firefox. These browsers are able to communicate in an encrypted way with Tucano International SA’s Secure Server, which will transmit the Consumer’s information to the banking circuit (always encrypted) for verification.
When sending and receiving data through a connection to an SSL Secure Server, forms are displayed that indicate the reaching of secure areas (Hard Copy Form) and with the web address of the website characterized by the https prefix (note the final “s”).
Tucano International SA uses the SSL Secure Server for the transmission of credit card data. In practice: after selecting the payment by credit card, you will access a page that allows you to enter the data and send the data to the SSL Secure Server. Access to the SSL Secure Server only takes place when the data is sent. Until you press the “Send Data” button there is no risk: the data remains on the user's computer. Only after the “Send” button is clicked does the data enter PayPal's transactional circuit.
PayPal transactions take place under completely secure conditions: all data is transmitted according to the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) security system. The use of this technology requires that confidential information travel on the Internet only in encrypted form, or encoded according to a complex mathematical algorithm that guarantees the confidentiality of communications and the inaccessibility of the data transmitted.
15. JURISDICTION AND COMPETENT COURT
Our business is based solely on Swiss law. The competent court shall be that of Winterthur.
We are also authorized to use the customer's court system.
