Therefore, before placing an order and/or purchasing products and services from subjects other than FENDI, the Customer should check the conditions of sale which apply to such transaction. In no case can FENDI be held liable for the provision of services by third parties.
For the purposes of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale, the vendor is FENDI North America, Inc., located at 555 Madison Avenue, 15th Floor, New York, New York.
1. Product orders
Orders may only be placed if you are domiciled in the United States and directly by persons of legal age who are not under legal disability. By placing an order, you represent and warrant that you meet both of these requirements.
Orders may be placed in English via this Store, or from FENDI Customer Service, on Monday to Friday from 10:00 A.M. EST to 7:00 P.M. EST, excluding public holidays.
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. Each online 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.
FENDI reserves the right to modify the limits for the quantity and/or types of products that may be purchased online, at any time. Further, FENDI reserves the right to not accept orders which are incomplete, incorrect or if products are unavailable. If FENDI exercises such right, FENDI will inform the Customer that FENDI has exercised such rights, providing the reasons for doing so. The Customer is responsible for selecting the articles of interest to him/her. 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 sample representation of the products available on the Website.
Although FENDI takes reasonable measures to help ensure the photographs on the Store 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 colour resolution, among other things. Consequently, FENDI cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies in the graphic representation of the FENDI products displayed on the Store.
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 Store, and to confirm that he/she has read and accepted these General Terms and Conditions of Sale.
2. Product prices
Product prices include standard shipping costs, unless otherwise stipulated on the Store or on the order page. Product prices do not include all taxes and duties. The price of each product is displayed for the Customer prior to completion of the order. All prices are in United States dollars.
3. Completing the order
The purchase procedure is complete once the Customer confirms the order. Upon confirmation, the order is sent directly to FENDI. The Customer may correct the order before confirmation or can cancel the order before its completion by leaving the Website without having confirmed the order.
It expressly understood that the Customer's order is binding once the confirmation of successful completion of the order is sent by FENDI by e-mail, at the address indicated by the Customer during the order process. Such confirmation includes the number and date of purchase, the product ordered, its price, the amount paid and any right to return product.
The Customer may access the order in the "Orders" section, which also includes a history of past orders.
The Customer may cancel the order by telephone to FENDI Customer Service only before ordered products have been shipped.
4. Conditions of payment
The Customer must make payment via one of the methods of payment indicated on the order form.
For payment, the Customer must confirm on the 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.
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.
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 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.
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 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.
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/us/webapps/mpp/ua/useragreement-full).
Following order completion, the Customer can monitor delivery status of the order in the Orders part of the Fendi & Me section of the Website. The Customer can also contact FENDI Customer Service by telephone or e-mail to request information on delivery.
Without prejudice to the exception below, articles will be delivered only to the address indicated by the Customer in the following countries: Continental US, Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. No deliveries will be made to post office boxes, Army Bases, courier collection points and/or Poste Restante addresses.

Further, these estimated delivery times do not apply with respect to Pre-ordered and Personalized Products. Please see below for more details.
Standard shipping is not available for Hawaii, Alaska or Puerto Rico. The additional costs of Express Service in option (ii) will be charged to the Customer.
All shipping costs, including additional costs charged to the Customer are itemized in the order form at the time of purchase on the Website.
Before the products have been actually shipped, the Customer may contact Customer Service should he/she wish to change the delivery date and FENDI will reasonably try to accommodate such request. In any case, the e-mail sent by FENDI to the Customer contains a tracking code and an exclusive link to track the shipment in real time. FENDI's Customer Service can provide assistance for any delivery problems.
The Customer is responsible for the loss or damage to the products ordered, for which FENDI is not responsible, beginning at the time at which the Customer or a third party designated by the Customer and different from the carrier takes delivery of the products.
Therefore, if, at the time of delivery, the exterior of the package is damaged, the Customer or other recipient, in the case of a gift, must open the package in the presence of the carrier to check the condition of the product inside.
If the product is damaged, the Customer (or recipient) must detail all observed damage on the delivery note. Any claims must be made as described in article  below.
Should the Customer make a claim for loss, non-compliance or damage to the product, FENDI will replace the product free of charge when available, or refund the Customer, upon express Customer request, according to the terms and conditions described below.
6. Conformity of the order
The Customer must check the products at the time of delivery, in order to ascertain that they match the articles ordered and have no manufacturer's or conformity defects.
Should the delivered product not conform to the order, the Customer has the right to have the products brought into conformity at no charge, through repair or replacement, unless the requested remedy is objectively impossible or excessively costly with respect to the other.
If product repairs or replacement are not performed within a reasonable amount of time from the Customer's request, or are impossible or excessively costly, the Customer may request an appropriate price reduction or a refund of the purchase price. It is understood that the Customer loses said right if he/she does not report the conformity defect to FENDI within two (2) months of the date at which the latent defect was discovered.
If the order is returned and the credit card has already been debited, the Customer will be promptly. In the same way, if payment is made via PayPal, and the amount is debited at the time of order, the Customer will be promptly refunded via PayPal.
FENDI must be notified of any Customer request for one of the remedies listed above using the return form, which can be downloaded from the FENDI.com website or via a report sent by registered mail with notice of receipt to the following address: C/O Fendi.com, 555 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10022 In any case, the report must be first sent via e-mail to email@example.com.
