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, e-mail 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 the Biondi Couture’s terms of eligibility, who have been issued a valid credit/debit card by a bank acceptable to Biondi Couture, whose applications are acceptable to Biondi Couture and who have authorized Biondi Couture to process a charge or charges on their credit/debit card in the amount of the total purchase price for the merchandise which they purchase.
Biondi Couture reserves the right to restrict multiple quantities of an item being shipped to any one customer or postal address.
All orders are subject to acceptance and availability. Biondi Couture offers products for sale that are in stock and available for dispatch from our stores. Please be aware that certain products that are in particularly high demand will sell out and on rare occasions internet orders will not be fulfilled. Biondi will inform you immediately if anything is out of stock.
Biondi Couture does not store any of your credit card information.
Prices shown on the Site are in GBP and can be converted to US Dollar or Euros and are inclusive of VAT at the applicable rate. VAT will be deducted from the price if you select a shipping address where VAT is not applicable. All transactions will be charged in GBP. The amount stated in Euros or US Dollars is simply an estimate based on daily currency valuations. If you are a customer whose credit/debit card is not denominated in Sterling the final price will be calculated in accordance with the applicable exchange rate on the day your card issuer processes the transaction. All prices and offers remain valid as advertised from time to time. The GBP price of a product displayed on the Site at the time the order is accepted will be honoured, except in cases of patent error.
Customers purchasing from outside the UK maybe be charged additional Import duty or taxes at the point on entry. Any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so you should contact the local customs office for further information. Additionally, please note that when ordering from Biondi Couture, the recipient is considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which the goods are received. International customers and customers dispatching products internationally should be aware that cross-border deliveries are subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities.
Payment can be made by Visa, Visa Electron, Visa Debit, Visa Delta, MasterCard, and American Express. Payment will be debited and cleared from your account upon receipt of your order by Biondi Couture. You confirm that the credit/debit card that is being used is yours or that you have been specifically authorised by the owner of the credit/debit card to use it. All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorization by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorize payment to Biondi Couture, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery. We take reasonable care to make our Site secure. All credit/debit card transactions on this site are processed using Global Payments, a secure online payment gateway that encrypts your card details in a secure host environment. Furthermore, we take reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the 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 unauthorized access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the Site.
We require a signature for any goods delivered, at which point responsibility for your purchased goods passes to you. If you have specified a recipient who is not you for delivery purposes (for example as a gift) then you accept that evidence of a signature by them (or at that delivery address) is evidence of delivery and fulfilment by Biondi Couture, and transfer of responsibility in the same way. Estimated delivery times are to be used as a guide only and commence from the date of dispatch. Biondi Couture is not responsible for any delays caused by destination customs clearance processes.
If you are a customer based in the EU, you have the right to cancel your order with us under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 (DSRs). Alternatively, you may prefer to return or exchange the items. Items should be returned new, unused, and with all designer garment tags still attached. Returns that are damaged, soiled or altered may not be accepted and may be sent back to the customer. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if any of your purchases have been delivered without tags.
Please refer to our Returns Procedure.
If you are based in the EU under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 (DSRs), you have the right to cancel your order with us, provided you give us written notice within seven working days of receipt.
It's free to exchange items for a different size, based on stock availability. Shipping is free on the replacement item, but if you are based outside the EU you will need to pay duties and taxes on this.
Sometimes, despite our best efforts, our products can be faulty. For this reason we suggest you keep your receipt. We are very happy to replace/credit/refund where items are faulty. We require (1) proof of purchase (2) a clear description of the fault (3) return of the merchandise in order to process your return. Items that are damaged as a result of normal wear and tear are not considered to be faulty.
Your refund will be credited to the original purchaser's credit card and will include shipping costs for faulty items or for orders cancelled under the DSRs only. If your order has been sent to a destination within the EU, all sales taxes will be refunded. Outside the EU, customs duties and sales taxes are non-refundable through Biondi Couture Limited. However, you may be able to recover these by contacting your local customs office directly. Please note card refunds may take up to 10 business days for your bank to complete, depending on their processing time. This can vary greatly between card issuers, and unfortunately we are unable to influence this.
