ELIGIBILITY TO PURCHASE
In order to make purchases on the site, you will be required to provide your personal details. In particular, you must provide your real name, phone number, email address and other requested information as indicated. Furthermore, you will be required to provide payment details that you represent and warrant are both valid and correct and you confirm that you are the person referred to in the billing information provided. The site is available only to individuals and others who meet our terms of eligibility, who have been issued with a valid debit/credit card by a bank acceptable to us, whose applications are acceptable to us and who have authorised us to process a charge or charges on their debit/credit card in the amount of the total purchase price for the merchandise which they purchase. We reserve the right to restrict multiple quantities of an item being shipped to any one customer or postal address. By making an offer to purchase merchandise, you expressly authorise us to perform credit checks and where we feel necessary, to transmit or to obtain information (including any updated information) about you to or from third parties, including but not limited to your debit/credit card number or credit reports, to authenticate your identity, to validate your debit/credit card, to obtain an initial debit/credit card authorisation and to authorise individual purchase transactions. Furthermore, you agree that we may use personal information provided by you in order to conduct appropriate anti-fraud checks. Personal information that you provide may be disclosed to a credit reference agency or fraud prevention agency, which may keep a record of that information.
All orders are subject to acceptance and availability, and items in our shopping basket are not reserved and may be purchased by other customers. We offer products for sale that are in stock and available for dispatch. Occasionally, we may be waiting for shipments from our designer suppliers. Consequently, you may from time to time be given the possibility of making an advance payment for certain items in which case you are able to make an advance purchase. This will ensure that you receive this item in priority once designer stock has been delivered to us. We will only take advance purchase orders for stock that has been scheduled for delivery by a designer supplier. Your rights regarding advance purchase are the same as those for any other purchase on our site. Alternatively, you may simply choose to register your email address for notification of arrival of the selected merchandise not held in stock. Items received into stock may be pre-allocated to satisfy advance payment orders and customers making advance payments will receive items in priority to customers on the waiting list or customers ordering through the site for immediate delivery. Please be aware that we may be unable to deliver selected advance payment merchandise due to production problems or quality checks issues identified when we receive an order into stock. In these circumstances we will notify you and refund the advance payment to your debit/credit card within thirty days of being advised that merchandise has become unavailable. If you have registered your email address for notification of the arrival of a specific product featured on our site, we will attempt to notify you by email when the product becomes available. Please be aware that on occasion certain products that are in particularly high demand will sell out during this time.
All prices and offers remain valid as advertised from time to time. Product prices are set using existing currency exchange rates. These prices are subject to change if the applicable currency exchange rate changes before your order is accepted or the items are subject to markdowns at any time during the selling period. The price applicable to your order will be the price current at the time your order is accepted.
Once an item has been purchased at a discounted sale price, no price adjustment will be offered should the item be further marked down.
Your card will be charged in currency based on the place where the goods are purchased. Prices are displayed to you when you enter the site in the currency used for the country indicated by your computer’s IP address. If you are a customer whose debit/credit card is not denominated in pounds sterling, the final price will be calculated in accordance with the applicable exchange rate on the day your card issuer processes the transaction.
If you are in Pakistan and choose to have the goods shipped to Pakistan, prices will be shown inclusive of all taxes (where applicable) at the current rate. All other countries are shown a price excluding taxes and as the recipient, you are liable for all import duties, customs and local sales taxes levied by the country you are in. Payment of these at the time of delivery is necessary to release your order from customs on arrival.
ACCEPTANCE OF YOUR ORDER
Once you have made your choice and your order has been placed, you will receive an email acknowledging the details of your order. This email is not an acceptance of your order, just a confirmation that we have received it. Unless you cancel your order, acceptance of your order and completion of the contract between you and us will be completed when we email you to confirm that the goods have been dispatched.
We reserve the right not to accept your order in the event, for example, that we are unable to obtain authorisation for payment, that shipping restrictions apply to a particular item, the item that is ordered is out of stock or does not satisfy our quality control standards and is withdrawn, or that you do not meet the eligibility criteria set out within the terms of sale. We may also refuse to process and therefore accept a transaction for any reason or refuse service to anyone at any time at our sole discretion. We will not be liable to you or to any third party for reason of our withdrawing any merchandise from the site whether or not that merchandise has been sold, removing screening or editing any materials or content on the site, refusing to process a transaction or unwinding or suspending any transaction after it has begun.
Payment can be made by Visa, Mastercard, PayPal and any other methods which may be clearly advertised on the site from time to time. You confirm that the debit/credit card that is being used is yours or that you have been specifically authorised by the owner of the debit/credit card to use it. All debit/credit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery. We take reasonable care to make our site secure. All debit/credit card transactions on this site are processed using a secure online payment gateway that encrypts your card details in a secure host environment. These details will be fully encrypted and only used to process card transactions which you have initiated. To help ensure that your shopping experience is safe, simple and secure, we use SSL technology. Furthermore, we take reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep details of your order and payment secure, but in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the site.
