Utmost care is taken to ensure that, before any orders are placed, information is made available online concerning the essential characteristics of the products offered for sale, as well as the available payment and delivery methods. Nevertheless, there may be minor variations in the product's appearance in relation to the accompanying photographs, as long as such variations do not affect the product's essential characteristics. These variations will under no circumstances engage IZIPIZI's contractual liability.

An online dioptre test is presented during the preliminary stages of placing an order. This test is not intended to replace a visit to an eye care professional and will not engage IZIPIZI's liability in the event of inappropriate use by the Customer.

The information presented on the website www.izipizi.com in no way exempts Customers of their responsibility to consult all other information relating to products or provided on products or their packaging materials (user instructions, cleaning instructions...).
