How your contract with us is formed
Orders are submitted via the Website in the following way:
・Once you are ready to make a purchase, click on ‘add to Shopping Bag' to add the Product you wish to purchase to your Shopping Bag. Then proceed by clicking “proceed to purchase” to log into our secure servers to complete your Order.
・If this is your first purchase on the Website you will have the option at the end of the payment process to create an account with us using your email address and you will also be asked to create a password. You must keep this password confidential and must not disclose it or share it with anyone. We hold a secure password file to enable you to request a reminder, should it be forgotten on future transactions. You will then be asked to input your address. The address that you register with must be the address that the Order confirmation is sent to.
・If you have already registered with us you may enter your sign in details to access your account.
・You must select your preferred method of delivery (if any delivery charges are payable these will then be added to the amount you will be charged and you will be able to review these charges before you place your Order), confirm your address and input your payment details. You may check and correct any input errors in your Order up until the point at which you submit your Order by clicking on the “Complete Purchase and Pay” button. The clicking of said button will give rise to the obligation of payment of the price of the purchased Product(s).
・We will then send you a confirmatory email to acknowledge that we have received your Order. This is sent out automatically by us to the email address you register with us. Please note that this does not mean that your Order has been accepted. Your Order constitutes an offer by you to buy the Product(s) at the price set out in the Order.
・All Orders are subject to acceptance by us. We are not obliged to accept your Order and may, at our discretion, decline to accept your Order. You do, however, acknowledge that by clicking on the “Confirm Purchase and Pay” button, you enter into an obligation to pay for the Product(s) in the event your Order is accepted by us.
・After sending you the acknowledgment email we will check to make sure we are able to fulfil your Order. Where we accept your Order, we will confirm such Order by sending you a second email (“Dispatch Email”) confirming your Order, confirming dispatch of the Product(s) to the delivery address you have requested and giving you estimated timescales for delivery. This is sent out automatically by us to the email address you register with us. At this point we will process the payment details you have given to us to take payment for your Order.
・By sending you the Dispatch Email and thereby confirming and accepting your Order, the contract between us (“Contract”) is formed. After entering into the Contract, we will be under a legal duty to supply you with Products that are in conformity with the Contract.
・The Contract will relate only to those Product(s) whose dispatch has been confirmed in the Dispatch Email. We will not be obliged to supply any other Product(s) which may have formed part of your Order until the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Email.
・You should check both the confirmatory email and the Dispatch Email for accuracy and let us know immediately if there are any errors.
・If there are any problems with your Order, you will be contacted by a representative from Marco Bicego.
Price and payment
Prices and delivery costs are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect Orders which we have already confirmed in a Dispatch Email.
Prices are checked regularly. However, if we find the price has changed or that there has been a pricing error when we receive your Order we will contact you and ask if you wish to proceed at the correct price. If you confirm that you do wish to proceed, please remember that we will still not be under an obligation to supply the Product(s) until we have sent you the Dispatch Email confirming your Order.
