1. Products available for purchase from this site

You can purchase both CDs and DVDs and have them shipped to the address you provide as well as digital downloads (MP3 and FLAC files) to your device by selecting the product(s) you want and proceeding with checkout. When you buy a download you actually get a user license which, for a limited period of time clearly indicated at the time of purchase, allows you to download all the files associated with that particular license for an unlimited number of times.

Please note that in some cases the purchases are carried out by the licensee (i.e. CD Baby or others) whose web site you are redirected to. In this case, the terms of use and conditions for purchase of the licensee's web site will be applied.

2. Methods of Payment

All payments for products on this site are carried out exclusively through PayPal and not directly to CONTINUO RECORDS or CONTEMPOARS. Please note that there is no extra charge to you by paying through PayPal. (PayPal's online secure payment system is used in millions of transactions daily between online shoppers and businesses worldwide). With PayPal, no details concerning your credit card information are revealed to us. When you complete your purchase Paypal charges your credit card for the item(s) you have selected and at the same time automatically notifies us electronically of your payment and credits our account.

To begin processing your order for CDs, DVDs or digital downloads we must first receive notification of payment from Paypal. This normally occurs in real time. Within minutes after you finish your transaction you will receive an automatic confirmation e-mail of your purchase and payment. Please be aware that, for technical reasons totally beyond our control, there sometimes can be a delay in the transmission or reception of these electronic communications. If you do not get the confirmation e-mail or the OK to download after having completed a payment, please contact customer service as soon as possible so that corrective measures can be taken immediately.

All prices quoted in our catalogue already include any applicable VAT (IVA) or sales taxes unless otherwise indicated.

3. Accepting and Processing your Order

For tangible products such as CDs, DVDs, etc., notification of your payment to us by PayPal constitutes our acceptance of your order and, except for situations beyond our control, items will be shipped out within 2 working days. Depending on the total amount of your order shipping charges may be added to the prices quoted in our catalogue. The exact amount for any shipping charges that may apply will be clearly indicated on the PayPal checkout page before you click the final confirmation of your order.

For digital download user licenses, notification of your payment to CONTINUO RECORDS by PayPal constitutes our acceptance of your order and normally the OK to download is automatic and immediate. If there is a problem and this doesn't occur, please contact customer service to have the situation verified and the download released.

4. Shipping and Customs

We ship by priority mail and delivery usually takes about 7 working days but depending on the postal service and the destination it may take longer. Shipments going to customers in countries outside the European Union may be subject to customs fees or import duties. Any such additional costs are the sole responsibility of the recipient. International postal regulations require that the general nature of the goods we ship be clearly indicated on our packages.

Furthermore, our international customers should be aware that packages may be opened for routine inspection by postal or customs officials.

5. Cancellations, Returns and Refunds

If you wish to cancel an order and obtain a refund for any tangible products such as CDs, DVDs, etc., you can do so before the deadlines by following the procedures listed below.

You can cancel your order and obtain a refund by returning the merchandise purchased within 30 days from the date you received it. Please note that our deadline generously exceeds the one established by law (i.e.- refund given for items returned within 7 days of receipt). Any item returned to us must be in its entirety and in its original sealed packaging. Return shipment or postage costs are the customer's responsibility. Items returned within the deadline are to be sent to:
CONTEMPOARS S.R.L. - Via Nomentana Nuova 117 - 00141 Roma (Italy).
Also, you must specify the following information in writing (e-mails are acceptable) to CONTINUO RECORDS customer service: 1) the person in whose name the order was placed; 2) the payment details and 3) the reason for the return. Within 10 working days from the receipt of the item(s) returned and in accordance with the procedures established by PayPal, we will credit your account for the purchase amount you paid.

If you e-mail your cancellation to us within 24 hours of having placed your order, we will do everything possible to stop the shipment from being sent out so that you can avoid being charged on your credit card and having to return the item(s) and pay for return shipment.

Under no circumstances is the cancellation, return or refund of an order for a digital download (MP3, FLAC or any other file type) allowed. This type of product can be replaced only in the event of a defective download (please see below).

6. Defective Products

We fully guarantee all of our products and, in the unlikely event you should receive one that is clearly defective, we will replace it at our expense. To obtain a replacement of any of our tangible products (CDs, DVDs, etc.) you must return it to us within 6 months of the date of purchase to the following address:
CONTEMPOARS S.R.L. - Via Nomentana Nuova, 117 - 00141 Roma (Italy).
We will send you a new replacement and we will refund your return shipping expenses provided that you use regular priority mail and not an express courier service.

To obtain the replacement of a defective digital product (MP3, FLAC, etc.) you must first communicate the problem to our customer service department. They will replace the defective file in our server within the shortest possible time and notify you as soon as it is once again available for downloading. If in the meantime your user license has expired we will extend the time limit accordingly.
