8.6. Products must be returned in the same conditions in which they were delivered. You must therefore ensure that the Products are intact and complete, that they have never been used, worn or damaged in any way, and returned in their original packaging, equipped with all the labels they were received with. In case a Product was provided with a security tag, the return of this Product will not be accepted if the original security tag has been removed, broken or damaged. You are also informed that, based on security and hygienic-sanitary reasons, perfumes cannot be returned if the sealing cellophane and the original packaging have been opened, damaged, altered or removed.

1.1. Any sale of products bearing the Prada Group trademarks (the “Products” or the “Product”) concluded by means of distance sale, including sales subject to Customer approval, shall be governed by these General Terms and Conditions of Sale.
The Products are sold directly by the Prada Group company, located in one of the countries belonging to the European Economic Area, in the United Kingdom or in Switzerland, which is responsible for the sales outlet or commercial structure that manages the sale process of the Products to the consumer (hereinafter referred to as the “Company”) or that delivers the Product, in case of sales subject to approval.
The Company’s details shall be specified in the Purchase Offers, as well as in the delivery note or receipt issued by the sales outlet and in the Confirmation of Sale as defined below.
These General Terms and Conditions of Sale contain important information on the rights and obligations of consumers, as well as the limitations and exclusions applicable to them, and govern the distance sale between the Company and the consumer.
1.2. The use of the distance sale service governed by these General Conditions of Sale is reserved exclusively for consumers (“Customers” or “Customer”) understood as natural persons acting for purposes that are not primarily related to their own commercial, industrial, productive, entrepreneurial, artisan or professional activity, over 18 years of age (or, if under age, having attained legal capacity in accordance with the rules of their country, and/or acting with the consent of or through their legal guardian or authorised by their legal representative), or as legal persons acting for purposes other than resale and, more generally, business purposes.
The resale or transfer for any commercial or professional purposes of the purchased Products is expressly prohibited.
1.3 The Products may only be delivered in the Country hosting the registered office of the Company in which the sales outlet or the commercial structure that manages the relevant sales process is based. The Customer is invited to contact the Client Service to verify whether the Company may also deliver in other territories.
1.4 The languages used for the conclusion of the distance sale contract are: English, Italian, French, German, Spanish and Portuguese.
1.5 These General Terms and Conditions of Sale are made available to the Customer to allow him/her to know, store and reproduce them in accordance with the regulations in force.
1.6 The contract of sale relating to the Products is governed exclusively by the General Terms and Conditions of Sale in force at the time when the Customer makes his/her purchase request, receives the sale proposal, or receives the Products subject to approval pursuant to the regulations in force and in accordance with the procedure set out in Articles 3.1, 3.2 and 3.3.
1.7 “Distance Sale Subject to Approval” means any sale concluded following the Customer’s approval of the Products made available to him/her by the Company within the terms indicated by the Company or, in the absence of approval, following their failure to be returned within the return terms indicated in the Purchase Offer Subject to Approval.
2. Product Availability
2.1. The Customer acknowledges that the Products are limited in number and is therefore aware that the Company must check their availability following receipt of the purchase request by the Customer. The Company will use every reasonable effort to ensure that the availability of the Products is as up to date as possible.
2.2. There may be occasional inconveniences in relation to the availability of certain Products. In such circumstances, the Company will promptly inform the Customer (and in any case within the terms specified below), by email and/or telephone, that his/her purchase request has not been accepted due to the unavailability of the Products, possibly inviting the Customer to confirm his/her request with regard to available Products only.
2.3 The Company reserves the right to change the Products offered for sale at any time, without prior notice.
3. Purchasing procedure
3.1. The Customer’s interest in purchasing the Products is received by the Company by telephone or by other telematic, digital or paper means, or in the shops. Following the indications received from the Customer, the Company will send an email summarising the purchase request (“Purchase Offer”) or, in the case of Distance Sale Subject to Approval, an email summarising the Products that will be made available to the Customer (“Purchase Offer Subject to Approval” and, together with the Purchase Offer, “Purchase Offers”).
At the end of the period indicated in the Purchase Offer, the Customer may no longer use pay by link and any intention to purchase expressed by the Customer after the expiry of the period will not be considered valid. The Company, therefore, shall not be liable for any change in the price of the Products. In this case, the Customer shall again express to the Company his/her interest in purchasing the Products in accordance with this Article 3.1 and shall receive a new Purchase Offer together with a new payment link.
3.2. The Customer must check the accuracy of the Purchase Offers’ content and report any errors, additions, or changes to their content. The Company will therefore send new Purchase Offers with the changes indicated by the Customer by email.
In the event of a distance sale other than a sale subject to approval, the Customer shall confirm the Purchase Offer directly via the pay by link contained in the Purchase Offer, within the terms indicated therein. Confirmation of the Purchase Offer by the Customer via pay by link shall be construed as an express and unequivocal manifestation of the Customer’s intention to purchase the Products, if available, in accordance with the Purchase Offer received, as well as full acceptance of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale (which must be saved by the Customer) and of all the terms indicated in the Purchase Offer, as well as confirmation by the Customer that he/she has read the Information on the processing of personal data (hereinafter “Purchase Confirmation”).
In the event of a Distance Sale Subject to Approval, the Customer must indicate to the Company his/her approval of all or part of the Products by the date indicated in the Purchase Offer Subject to Approval.
3.3. The purchase is concluded when, upon verification of the availability of the Products, the Customer receives confirmation of the purchase and shipping by the Company.
In the event of a Distance Sale Subject to Approval, the Customer expressly acknowledges the Company’s right to temporarily block an amount in the Customer’s payment card equal to the total price of the Products made available to the Customer, it being understood that no charge will be made for Products returned at the end of the period granted for the expression of satisfaction, without prejudice to the provisions of article 8.12 below.

4. Execution of the contract
4.1. The contract of sale shall be deemed to have been executed:
a) in the event of a distance sale other than Distance Sale Subject to Approval, when the Customer receives confirmation of the purchase and shipping of the Products (hereinafter referred to as “Confirmation of Sale”).
The Confirmation of Sale will also contain a summary of the purchase conditions, such as: the description of the Products purchased and their main characteristics, the price of the Products and the total price of the order, including any taxes and shipping costs, the address to submit any communications, information on after-sales services, the existence of the right of withdrawal and how to exercise it;
b) in the event of a Distance Sale Subject to Approval, when, and for the Products for which, the Customer communicates to the Company by email his/her satisfaction (hereinafter referred to as “Confirmation of Approval”), or at the expiry of the period granted by the Company to express his/her satisfaction without any notice having been sent by the Customer, and without the Products made available to the Customer having been returned.
Upon receipt by the Company of the Confirmation of Approval, or upon expiry of the period for expressing satisfaction without any notice from the Customer and without any return of the Goods, the Company shall charge the price of the Goods delivered to the Customer, and any other costs if specifically indicated in the Purchase Offer Subject to Approval. The price of the Products will also be charged to the Customer in the event that the Customer returns Products that have been used or in any other way tampered with, as better specified in Article 8.12 below.
4.2 In the event that a Product, which was not available when requested by the Customer at a sales outlet, continues to be unavailable, the Company shall contact the Customer to inform him/her that the Product is unavailable, agree on the price refund procedures and the contract of sale shall be considered definitively terminated. Alternatively, with the express consent of the Customer, the parties shall agree on the replacement of the unavailable Product with another Product of equal or greater value if the Customer agrees to pay the Company the difference between the price already paid for the unavailable Product and the price of the new Product, where possible. Alternatively, the parties may agree on the issue of a voucher of a value equal to the price paid for the unavailable Product, to be spent, within one year from its issue, for the purchase of other products at the same or other sales outlets of the same type (boutique or outlet), in the same Country in which the sales outlet that made the sale is located.
4.3 The Company reserves the right not to accept one or more of the Customer’s purchase requests in the following cases:
a) non-availability of the Products requested by the Customer;
b) failure to confirm or receive the payment within the deadlines indicated by the Company;
c) the existence of a legal dispute between the Company and the Customer relating to a previous order;
d) if the Customer has on previous occasions breached the General Terms and Conditions of Sale or failed to fulfil its obligations;
e) if it transpires that the Customer purchases the Products with a view to reselling or transferring them for commercial or professional purposes;
f) if the Customer has been involved in or is suspected of illegal or fraudulent activities.
In the aforementioned cases, the Company shall notify the Customer by email, within 30 (thirty) days from the date of actual receipt of the purchase request or, in the event of an advance payment at the sales outlet, within 30 (thirty) days from the conclusion of the contract, respectively, of any cancellation of the request received and of the contract. In such case, no request for purchase by the Customer shall be deemed accepted by the Company and/or no contract shall be deemed concluded between the Company and the Customer, and any payment made by the Customer for the purchase of the Product shall be refunded by the Company.
With specific reference to purchases made in the Principality of Monaco: (i) in the event of total unavailability of the Products, the Customer will be asked whether he/she wishes to receive an available Product at the same price as the unavailable one or to cancel his/her purchase request in full and be reimbursed the price paid, if payment has already been made (this reimbursement will take place within 30 days following the cancellation); (ii) if, however, the Products ordered are only partially available, the Customer will be given the choice of receiving the available Products plus other available Products at the same price as the unavailable ones, or cancelling his/her purchase request entirely.
If the cancellation is only partial, the Customer will only be charged the amount of the Products actually purchased.
5. Price and payment method
5.1. The prices of all Products offered for sale by means of distance sale are inclusive of VAT or any relevant locally applicable taxes.

5.6. The Products purchased will only be dispatched once the payment of the amount due by the Customer has been successfully made, with the exception of Distance Sale Subject to Approval. In the event of a Sale Subject to Approval, the Products will be shipped following the temporary blocking of an amount on the Customer’s payment card (pre-authorisation) equal to the total price of the Products requested.
A. Rules applicable to distance sales other than sales subject to approval.
6.1. The Products will be shipped to the Customer as soon as the Company receives confirmation of payment or, in the event of payment made at the sales outlet, as soon as they are available.

If the Confirmation of Sale does not contain the aforementioned link, the Customer may in any case request information on the status of the shipment from the sales outlet through which he/she made the purchase of the Product.
6.9. As an alternative to delivery by courier, and where the service is made available by the Company, the Customer may request to collect the Products purchased directly from the sales outlet indicated by the Company that made the sale. If the Customer does not collect the Products within 14 (fourteen) days from receipt of the email informing him that the Product is available for collection, the Company may cancel the sale.
In this case, the Customer will be notified by email of the cancellation and will be promptly reimbursed for any amounts already paid.
6.10. The Customer shall bear the risk of loss, theft or damage to the Products only when the Customer, or a third party designated by the Customer other than the carrier, takes physical possession of the Products.

Pursuant to the applicable legislation, the Company shall only be liable for conformity defects that occur within 2 (two) years from delivery of the Product. An action to enforce defects shall be time-barred after 26 (twenty six) months from the shipping of the Product or another period specified in accordance with any applicable mandatory rules.
With specific reference to France, the Company is liable for the non-conformity of the Products under this contract (Articles 217-4 to 217-16 of the French Consumer Code) and for any hidden defects under the conditions provided for in Articles 1641 to 1648 and 2232 of the French Civil Code. In addition, statutory product conformity warranties apply in all cases irrespective of conventional commercial warranties. The Customer may decide to invoke the guarantee for hidden defects in accordance with Article 1641 of the French Civil Code. In this case, the Customer may choose between termination of the sale or a reduction in the sale price in accordance with Article 1644 of the French Civil Code.
Nothing in this Article 7.3 shall prejudice the application of mandatory rules that are more favourable to the Customer under local consumer protection legislation.
7.4. To report the presence of defects in the Products and seek one of the remedies listed above, the Customer may contact the Company in accordance with Article 14 below.
8. Returns and refunds - Withdrawal - Return due to non-satisfaction
8.1. The Customer has the right to withdraw from the contract without specifying the reason within 14 (fourteen) days from the date of delivery or collection of the Products or, in the event of a Distance Sale Subject to Approval, from the conclusion of the contract, without any charge for the relevant transport costs, unless otherwise provided for in the Purchase Offer.
8.2. The Customer may exercise the right of withdrawal by sending an email to the address indicated by the Company or, where the relevant service is expressly provided by the Company and confirmed in the Purchase Offer, at one of the sales outlets managed by the Company and authorised to receive returns.
Following withdrawal, the Customer shall have the right to either a refund of the price paid or, if previously agreed with the Company, the replacement of the Product with another Product of equal or greater value if the Customer agrees to pay the Company the difference between the price already paid for the returned Product and the price of the new Product. Otherwise, a voucher can be issued with a value equal to the price paid for the returned Product, to be spent, within one year from its issuance, for the purchase of other Products at other sales outlets of the same type (boutique or outlet), present in the same Country in which the sales outlet that made the sale is located or at the Company’s e-commerce site, if available. The Product shall be shipped to the address that will be communicated to the Customer in accordance with the procedures and instructions included in the package of the Product that the Customer wishes to return, unless the Customer delivers the Product to a sales outlet in the Country where the Company is established and authorised to receive returns, where applicable.
8.3. If the Customer does not comply with the return instructions provided by the Company, the relevant transport costs and the liability for loss, theft, damage or delay in delivery shall be borne by the Customer, unless otherwise provided for by the applicable mandatory regulations.
8.4 The Customer undertakes to return the Products for which he/she has exercised his/her right of withdrawal without undue delay and, in any event, within 14 (fourteen) days from the date on which he/she informed the Company of his/her decision to withdraw from the contract.
8.5. Products must be returned in the same condition in which they were delivered. The Customer must therefore ensure that the Products are intact and complete, never used, worn or damaged in any way, and that they are returned in their original packaging, with all the original labels. Where a Product has a security label, the return of the Product will not be accepted if the original security label has been removed, broken or tampered with. The Customer also acknowledges that, for reasons of safety and hygiene, perfumes cannot be returned if the sealing cellophane and the original packaging have been opened, damaged, altered or removed. The Company, or the sales outlet authorised to receive the return, will check the packaging and the condition of the individual Products returned, the substantial integrity of the same constituting an essential requirement for the exercise of the right of withdrawal.
8.6. The Company shall reimburse the price of the returned Products and any other costs incurred by the Customer for the purchase thereof without undue delay and in any event within 14 (fourteen) days from the date on which the Company received notice of withdrawal from the Customer.
8.7. To the extent permitted by applicable law, the Company reserves the right to refuse the return of any Product that is damaged, deteriorated, dirty or in such a state as to suggest, unequivocally, that it has been used, not in good faith, for purposes other than during checks performed by the Customer, strictly necessary to ascertain the characteristics and type of the Product purchased as well as if the original security label has been removed, broken or tampered with or, in the case of perfumes, if the sealing cellophane and the original packaging have been opened, damaged, altered or removed.
8.8. In all cases, the Company shall send a specific notice to the Customer informing him/her of the acceptance of the return and the re-credit or, where agreed, the replacement of the Product or the issue of the voucher, or of the non-acceptance with a specific indication of the reasons thereto.
None of the provisions contained in this Article 8 shall prejudice the application of local mandatory consumer protection rules that are more favourable to the Customer.
8.9. The return of Products pursuant to this article is only permitted in connection with purchases made by means of distance sale.
B. Return of Products due to non-satisfaction:
8.10. In the event of a sale subject to approval, the Customer is entitled to return the Products that he/she does not intend to purchase without being charged any costs for collection and transport, unless otherwise agreed in the Purchase Offer Subject to Approval, and provided that he/she has notified the Company of his/her wish to return the Products within the deadline stated in the Conditional Purchase Offer.
8.11. If the Customer does not return the Products within the deadline indicated in the Purchase Offer Subject to Approval, or in any case according to the instructions received by the Company, the costs of collection and transport and any liability for loss, theft, damage or delay in delivery shall in any case remain the responsibility of the Customer, unless otherwise provided for by the applicable mandatory regulations.
8.12. The provisions of Articles 8.5, 8.6, 8.7, 8.8 and 8.9 above shall apply to the return of Products sold subject to approval. The Company therefore reserves the right to refuse the return of any Product that is damaged, deteriorated, dirty or in such a state as to suggest, unequivocally, that it has been used not in good faith, for purposes other than during checks performed by the Customer, strictly necessary to ensure they are satisfied with the product, as well if the original safety label has been removed, broken or tampered with. In this case, the Company shall send a communication to the Customer stating that it does not accept the return of the Product and that the relevant price will be charged.

This limitation shall not apply if the Customer is domiciled in Slovakia, Poland, Bulgaria or Croatia.
9.2 The Company does not waive or in any way limit its liability to the Customer in the event of (i) death or personal injury caused by the negligence of the Company or its employees, agents or subcontractors; (ii) fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; (iii) infringement of the Customer’s legitimate rights in relation to the Products under applicable mandatory consumer protection legislation; and (iv) defective products within the meaning of applicable mandatory consumer protection legislation.
