ORDERS

Our shopping pages on our website will guide you through the steps you need to take to place an order with us.

The reason could be or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have requested.

We reserve the right not to accept your order, if for example we are unable to make it within a reasonable time, because of unexpected limits on our resources, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the Piece(s,; because shipping restrictions apply to a particular item,  if the payment has been declined or for any other reason at our sole discretion.

If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you.

Our acceptance of your order brings into existence a legally binding contract between us. Only adults (persons aged 18 and over) are entitled to enter into legally binding contracts and therefore are the only people entitled to transact through this site.

All credit/debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorization by the card issuer. If the card issuer does not authorize payment, we cannot process the order.

In the event that your order is flagged by a ‘warning’ or ‘caution’ from PayPal, we will contact you for further information required. Without this further information being given within 3 working days, we will cancel your order and you will be refunded by PayPal.

When giving address details please note that there is a difference between the delivery address and invoice address areas of the order form. Your billing address is where your credit/debit card is registered to.

If you would prefer to make a payment via a bank transfer, please get in touch for arrangements to be made. Orders will only be dispatched when your payment has cleared and been received. Please note that this can take up to 5 working days.

DELIVERY

We will send the Piece(s) to you as soon as possible compatible with the time it takes to make it, in any case no more then six weeks.

The Piece(s) will be your responsibility from the time we deliver it to the address you gave us or from when you collect it from us.

You own the Piece(s) once we have received payment in full.

We will not be responsible for supplying the Piece(s) late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the further information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.

Items for delivery within the UK will normally be sent using Post Office “Special Delivery” services and the cost of this will be added to your shopping bag at the time of ordering.

Orders to destinations within the EU and other World destinations will normally be sent using “Royal Mail Signed For” or “Royal Mail Airsure” (depending on local mail restrictions) and the cost of this will be added to your shopping bag at the time of ordering.

Other courier services can be used on request. You may contact Francesca Marcenaro for a quotation of an alternative service.

We recommend placing your orders early at particularly busy times, (such as Christmas) to make allowances for delivery delays. Francesca Marcenaro will not be liable for any delays in the delivery date.

All deliveries require a signature so please supply us with an address at which a parcel can be signed for. Within the UK, if you miss a delivery it should be taken to your nearest Royal Mail sorting office where you can arrange redelivery or to collect it.

Risk of Francesca Marcenaro’s products shall pass to the buyer upon delivery of the products, or where the buyer fails to take delivery at the agreed time, at the time of the delivery was attempted.

EVENTS OUTSIDE OUR CONTROL

Francesca Marcenaro shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform any of its obligations if the delay or failure results from the events or circumstances outside of its reasonable control, including but not limited to, acts of God, strikes, lock outs, accidents, war, fire, failure of any communications, telecommunications or computer system, breakdown of plant machinery or shortage or unavailability of raw materials from a natural source of supply, and Francesca Marcenaro shall be entitled to a reasonable extension of its obligations.

If an event outside our control takes place that affects the performance of our obligations under the contract we will contact you as soon as reasonably possible to notify you. Our obligations under the contract will be suspended and the time for performance of our obligations will be extended for the duration of the event outside our control. Where the event outside our control affects our delivery of Product(s) to you, we will arrange a new delivery date with you after the event outside our control is over.

RETURNS

Please note that we don’t have any stock: every piece is made to order. For this reason we don’t do returns.

However, we change faulty items that will only be accepted if the goods are delivered to the customer damaged. We are only able to exchange a faulty item for the same item.

You must email us within 3 days of receipt of your order.

To return a faulty item it must have the security label attached, must not have been worn and in the original condition and packaging.

In case of a faulty item we will let you know if the change is possible. We refund you the price paid just after our inspection of the Piece(s).

If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you have the right to end the contract.
