The Site is provided "as is" when the User connects and views its Contents.
Barovier&Toso ensures, to the best of its ability, that the information in the catalogues and on the Site are at all times realistic and up to date. However, the User accepts that Barovier&Toso cannot be held responsible for omissions or errors that may be present in the Content.

Barovier&Toso maintains the right, at its sole discretion, to close the Site and/or make modifications and/or additions to the Content at any time, without giving prior notice and without being obligated to indemnify.
The User is aware that the descriptions and illustrations in the catalogues and on the Site must be understood as merely indicative and for information purposes and cannot be considered binding for Barovier&Toso. This is on account of to the originality, uniqueness and unrepeatability of the company's products. A specific product depicted by the identical photographs may, in reality, vary in terms of size and colour. For instance, this may be due to the User's chosen web browser and monitor settings used to access the Site, which may alter how the images are displayed.
4. QUALITY CERTIFICATE
Since the User is aware of the history and manufacturing processes of Barovier&Toso products, he or she acknowledges that each one is handmade from Venetian crystal by the master glassmakers of Barovier&Toso in Murano and is a one-of-a-kind work of art because it still bears the artistry of the master glassmaker who made it. Therefore, the User is aware that each product is unique and unrepeatable and is absolutely not reproducible in a serial manner. The User thus accepts that the possible differences between different pieces of the same product are not faults or defects, but constitute, rather, signs of particular value and authenticity, an expression of the individuality and beauty of unrepeatable works of art.
