Distance sales, as regulated herein, were designed in compliance with local laws in force.
(3) The use of the distance sales service described herein is reserved solely for consumers.

The resale, rental or transfer for commercial or professional reasons of products purchased on the Site is strictly forbidden.

(6) It is understood that by placing an order on the FENDI.COM website, the Customer fully and unreservedly acknowledges and accepts that these General Terms and Conditions of Sale form an integral and substantial part of the order.
(7) These General Terms and Conditions of Sale do not govern the provision of services, or the sale of products by subjects other than FENDI, even in cases in which they are presented on the Official Website via links, banners or other hypertext links. Therefore, before placing an order and/or purchasing products and services from subjects other than the Vendor, the Customer is invited to check the conditions of sale applied.

(2) Orders may be placed via the FENDI.COM website, or from FENDI Customer Service, Monday to Friday, from 9am - 7pm (Sydney time), excluding public holidays.
(3) The Customer must provide FENDI a valid e-mail address to which required information, information under these General Terms and Conditions of Sale and any information concerning the order will be sent.
(4) Each distance sale order made by the Customer covered by these General Terms and Conditions of Sale may be for one or more products, up to a maximum of seven products per order, of which a maximum of two units per same article.
(5) FENDI reserves the right to modify the limits for the quantity and/or types of products that may be purchased via distance sales, at any time.

The Customer's shopping cart and the order summary sent to the Customer following completion of the purchase include a description of the products ordered, including measurements and sizes (where applicable), and a digital photograph allowing a correct representation of the products available on the site.
(7) Subject to any non-excludable guarantees provided by the Australian Consumer Law contained in Schedule 2 of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) ("ACL"), although FENDI takes all appropriate measures to ensure the photographs on the site faithfully represent the original products, including technological means to reduce inaccuracies as much as possible, certain variations are possible due to the Customer's computer's technical characteristics and color resolution. Consequently, any confirmation about the condition of a product is subject to the restriction on the possibly inaccurate representation on the customer's computer FENDI is not able to guarantee identity at the FENDI products and the graphic representation of the FENDI products shown on the website with respect to colouring for the technical reasons listed above.
(8) The Customer must click on the shopping cart icon to view the selected articles and total price of the articles ordered. The Customer is asked to verify the content of the shopping cart before completing the purchase form in accordance with the instructions provided on the website, and to confirm that he/she has read and accepted these General Terms and Conditions of Sale.
(9) Should the Customer need to modify (an article or quantity) or correct any errors in the order, he/she should follow the instructions on the Site.
3. Product prices
(1) Product prices include all taxes (including GST) and duties, ordinary shipping costs, unless otherwise stipulated on the FENDI.COM website or on the order page.
(2) The price of each product is displayed for the Customer prior to completion of the order. All prices are in Australian dollars and include any tax (if applicable).
4. Completing the order
(1) The purchase procedure is complete once the Customer confirms the order. Upon confirmation, the order is sent directly to FENDI.
(2) The Customer may correct or cancel the order before its completion by leaving the website without having confirmed the order.
(3) The General Terms and Conditions of Sale are always available on all pages of the website via the links in the footer.
(4) After the customer has clicked on "payable order", an automatic e-mail is sent via the access of the order to the customer. This is not yet the acceptance declaration of FENDI.COM. A contract has not yet come about at this time.
(5) FENDI considers the Customer's order to be binding once the entire purchase procedure has been completed properly, without any errors being identified by the Site. The contract between FENDI and the Customer is to be considered concluded when the Customer receives confirmation of successful completion from FENDI at the e-mail address indicated during the order process, sent in respect of the purchase procedure. With confirmation, the Customer also receives a copy of these accepted General Terms and Conditions of Sale and a complete summary of the order.
(6) Before FENDI sends the confirmation of the successful conclusion of the contract, FENDI will decide whether or not to accept orders not providing sufficient guarantees of solvency or which are incomplete or incorrect or if products are unavailable. In this case, FENDI will inform the Customer that the contract is not concluded and that it is not following up on the order, providing its reasons for doing so. The Customer is informed within 30 days of transmission of the order to FENDI. Any amounts already paid by the Customer for the order will be reimbursed.
(7) Following conclusion of the contract, the Customer will receive written confirmation of the order at the indicated e-mail address, including the number and date of purchase, the product ordered, its price, the amount paid, the right of withdrawal (except in cases where this right is excluded - Personalised Articles), indicating the times and instructions for returning goods, the mailing address for complaints, information on customer service, legal and commercial guarantees and the right to use out-of-court resolution mechanisms for complaints or appeals.
(8) The Customer may cancel the order by telephone to FENDI Customer Service only until ordered products have been prepared for shipment.
5. Conditions of payment
(1) The Customer must make payment via one of the methods of payment indicated on the order form.
(2) In order to prevent internet fraud, payments made via the FENDI.COM website are managed online by the bank in question using tools provided by Adyen.
(3) Adyen is responsible for securely storing and automatically processing order data including credit card information.
(4) For payment, the Customer must confirm on the FENDI.COM website that he/she is the card holder and that the name indicated on the credit card is his/hers; the Customer must provide the credit card number, expiry date and security key indicated on the card. Upon completing the order, the Customer's bank may request confirmation of the data entered and that the credit card used has not been reported lost or stolen. Validity of the Customer's card may be confirmed via a payment authorization at an amount of $1.00. This authorization is not debit.
For most payment methods, the total price of the order is credited immediately after checkout. For credit and debit card payments, the total price of the order is pre-authorised after checkout, and credited when the order is processed. The pre-authorization may result in a “hold” on your available card funds until the fulfilment of the order. Should an order be cancelled in whole or in part before shipment, you will not be charged for the price of the unshipped items: any pre-authorised amount will be released.
For pre-order items, the total amount is always credited immediately after checkout. In this case, should an order be cancelled in whole or in part before shipment, any paid amount will be refunded.
(5) If, for any reason, the amounts due by the Customer cannot be debited, the sale process and sale are automatically cancelled.
(1) Without prejudice to the previously mentioned article 4, the payment of products purchased on the website FENDI.COM can be paid via PayPal. Should the Customer choose PayPal as their payment method, they will be redirected to the website www.paypal.com/au where the payment for the products will be carried out following the procedure envisaged and regulated by PayPal and the contract terms and conditions as agreed between the user and PayPal. The data entered on the PayPal website will be handled directly by PayPal and will not be sent to or shared with FENDI. FENDI therefore has no knowledge of and cannot record in any way the details of the credit card connected to the Customer's PayPal account or any other payment instrument connected to said account.
(2) In the event of payment via PayPal, the total amount due will be debited by PayPal from the Customer at the conclusion of the online contract in accordance with Article 4. In the event of the termination of the purchase agreement and for any other type of refund, for any reason, the refund will be credited to the Customer's PayPal account. The time required to credit the payment instrument connected to said account depends exclusively on PayPal and the banking system. Once the credit order in favour of said account has been arranged, FENDI cannot be held responsible for any delays or omissions in crediting the Customer with the refund. To contest these cases the Customer must contact PayPal directly.
(3) The Customer expressly acknowledges and agrees that, when entering their data into the PayPal website to make their first purchase, a specific procedure entitled "Reference Transaction" will be automatically activated, which - through an automatic Customer recognition system - will allow them to complete any future orders with PayPal without having to sign in using their credentials again. The Customer can disable the "Reference Transaction" at any time by going to the specific section 3.11 (Cancelling Recurring
Payments) of the PayPal website (https://www.paypal.com/au/webapps/mpp/ua/useragreement-full).

i. Ordinary shipping with DHL: delivery will be made within 4-6 business days, Sunday excluded

In this case, the products are delivered only to the person bearing a written proxy signed by the Customer having made the purchase and a copy of the Customer's proof of identity, in addition to the documents indicated for pick-up by the Customer. The proxy is available on the FENDI.COM website.
