PURCHASE AND SHIPPING TERMS
Thank you for shopping with Josephina Lace. We ask that you carefully read our Purchase and Shipping Terms to ensure that you are completely aware of your rights when it comes to purchasing products (the Products) from our website.
By accessing this Website and/or placing an order you agree to be bound by the Terms and Conditions set out below. We may change these Terms and Conditions without letting you know and therefore it is your duty to check this page for any changes. If you do not agree to be bound by these Conditions you may not use or access this Website.
You must be over 18 years old to buy goods from this site. If you are under 18, you can only use this site with the involvement of a parent or guardian.
We will take all reasonable care of orders, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but in the case of negligence on your part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorized access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the Website.
Prices are subject to change at any time but no change will apply to an order we have already confirmed. The prices of garments and products mirror time, the cost of materials and logistics. Please keep in mind that prices do not include delivery.
Josephina Lace accepts payment via credit card (Visa/Mastercard), debit card and Paypal. Once you have made your payment for your order, we will email you an invoice, which confirms our receipt of your order.
The transmission of information via the Internet or email is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of data while you are transmitting it to our site; any such transmission is at your own risk.
Once we have received your personal data, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. You should be mindful to choose a password that is not easy for someone to guess.
We use the highest strength Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on our website. This means that ultimate security and privacy is provided. SSL is a sophisticated method of scrambling data as it travels from your computer to our website servers.
Our Security Certificate is provided to us by Thawte, the leading provider for online security and is verified by the Thawte® Trusted Site Seal.
Our handmade garments displayed live on our website (https://www.josephinalace.com or https://www.josephinalace.co.uk) are available to purchase and are on-hand to send once purchased. On occasion we produce made-to-order items, this however, will be by order of appointment only. If you purchase a made-to-order item your order is subject to fabric availability and payment. We will confirm by email our acceptance of your order once payment has been made in full. No contract will exist between us until that email has been sent. If an item is out of stock we will advise you before confirming your order.
PROCESSING OF ORDERS
We process our orders on business days which are Monday to Friday, excluding any applicable public holidays. Once your order has been processed online we will email you to confirm the dispatch with a corresponding tracking number.
Whenever possible orders are dispatched within 24 hours following our confirmation of your order. We will do our best to ensure the timely delivery of your order so that you can enjoy your new item ASAP!
DELIVERY DELAYED - REASONS WHY YOUR DELIVERY MAY BE DELAYED
We will always do our best for you to have your order with you as soon as possible! However, sometimes unforeseen situations which will affect the time of delivery may be beyond our control, such as 1) bad weather conditions, which can block roads and prevent couriers from doing their job; 2) recipient refuses parcel (if you are sending a package or a gift to someone, make sure you let them know they should expect a package to be delivered to their address); 3) maintenance work or building work (though not very common, maintenance work around the building or in the building might make the delivery difficult).
OTHER REASONS WHICH MAY CAUSE YOUR DELIVERY TO BE DELAYED
- Misspelled, incomplete or outdated address
- Incorrectly completed order form
- Delay caused by Customs
- Protective pets
LOST AND DAMAGED PARCELS
Claims for lost outgoing parcels cannot be made until a reasonable enough time has passed to allow for delays in the post, generally 10 working days in the case of a standard delivery. After 10 working days have passed, if you have not received your order you must then inform us. For all other expedited delivery options you must inform us within 5 working days of the expected date of delivery.
Any items damaged in transit or any discrepancies with orders must be reported to us within 2 days of receipt so please check your delivery on arrival.
