INTRODUCTION TO PURCHASING TERMS AND CONDITIONS
These terms and conditions apply when you order items from the web shop.
Therefore we recommend that you read them carefully before ordering any items.
If there are any parts of the terms and conditions that you do not understand, we recommend you contact Customer Service before you start shopping in the web shop.
In some places in the terms and conditions, it says 'you' or 'yours' – this refers to you as the user of our web shop. Where it says 'we', 'us' or 'our', it refers to Luca Vanucci Firenze Ltd.
The terms and conditions may be updated from time to time and therefore we ask you to approve them every time you shop with us.
ORDERING AND PROCESSING OF YOUR ORDER
The web shop is open 24 hours a day.
If you order over a weekend or public holiday, your order will first be processed on the next available weekday.
Orders can only be made on the web shop and not by e-mails, letters or faxes. If you have any problems with your order, we are always pleased to help you: Contact Customer Service.
Once you have completed an order, you will receive an e-mail confirming your order, and once we have packed and shipped your item(s), you will receive a receipt with tracking information – again by e-mail.
Minimum age for purchasing
You must be at least 18 years old to shop on the web shop. If you are under 18 years old, you need to have your parents' or guardians' consent to purchase on the site.
When are you bound by an order?
Before you complete your order on the web shop, you have the option to change the information you've entered: for example delivery, billing or payment details or the number of items.
As soon as you click 'Complete', you will receive a confirmation on your screen. From this point, you are bound by the 'agreement to purchase' and may not amend or cancel your order. You have 14 days to return (see the section on 'Returns') and we also refer to the section in the terms and conditions on the 'Right of withdrawal'.
You are always welcome to contact Customer Service – they are always pleased to help you.
We reserve the right to cancel an order ...
We reserve the right to cancel an order or a purchase without being liable for any damages or other costs, in one of the following situations:
1) Your payment information is incorrect or cannot be verified.
2) Your order has been submitted with the purpose of committing fraud etc. or submitted in connection with a criminal offence or other unlawful activity.
3) An unintentional error has occurred on the web shop, e.g. a payment error etc.
4) We have reason to believe that you are under 18 years old.
We accept the following payment methods on www.lucavanucci.co.uk
If you pay by credit card, you will be asked to enter the card's security code (Credit Card verification value (CVV)). You will find the three-digit security code on the back of your credit card, usually on the right side of the back of the credit card. The security code is necessary for the payment to be carried out and to maintain a high level of security. There may also be other similar security requirements.
When is the actual payment deducted?
Once your item has been ordered and we have the item/s in stock the whole amount of the order is deducted from your payment method. We will communicate with you directly if an item is out of stock or there is a problem with your order.
Payment and currency
The prices on the web shop are stated in the currency that apply to the country you are shopping from.
If you wish to change your country, thereby affecting the language and currency, you can do this at the top left of the web shop, but regardless of this, it will always be the country of your stated delivery address that will determine the currency that will be used for your order.
Please note that changing the 'country of delivery' may affect the price and delivery costs of your order.
When you have purchased an item on www.LucaVanucci.co.uk it usually takes 2-4 business days before you receive your goods.
However, we do note that delivery times may be longer during peak periods – especially in conjunction with sales and public holidays.

Receiving a delivery and warranty
The delivery has to be signed for when you receive it. It doesn't have to be you who signs for it. Other people at the delivery address (such as a family member, friend, receptionist etc.) can also sign for it with binding effect on your behalf.
Therefore, if your goods are incomplete, or we have delivered the wrong goods, please contact our Customer Service. If you can you already see missing goods etc. at the time the shipper wants to make the delivery, you should refuse to accept the goods.
Faulty Goods or incorrect goods
If you wish to complain about an item, or have received the wrong item, please contact our Customer Service if you have not already refused to accept the package when it was delivered.
In case of faulty or wrong goods, you can choose between the following options:
1) Return the item and have the purchase price and all shipping costs refunded.
2) Return the product and receive a similar product.
3) Keep the product and request a proportionate reduction of the purchase price.
When you contact our Customer Service, please provide the order number, item number, and describe what you are complaining about.
You are not responsible for costs associated with the return of defective or wrong items. We will naturally refund the purchase price and original shipping costs as soon as we have received the goods – unless you choose to receive a new product to replace the original product.
The warranty covers fabrication and material defects that can be identified by the normal use of the product. Therefore, the warranty does not cover defects, wear and tear or damages, directly or indirectly, arising from improper handling, lack of maintenance, violent use or suchlike.
Complaints about defects, which should be detected by usual examination of the item upon its receipt, must be notified to us within reasonable time.
We reserve the right to make specific assessments for each individual case.
We want to make shopping as easy as possible for you with Luca Vanucci and the same applies to returning items too. Please note that we do not offer a free returns service. You are therefore responsible for paying return costs.
When you receive your delivery, in addition to your ordered goods, it will always contain the following:
- A delivery note with an overview of the items you receive.
- Guidelines that instruct you how to return items (also shown below).
- A returns form that you should complete and send back when you return any item.

If you want to return one or more of the items as a shipment, you should follow the 4 steps below:
1)Write your reason for returning on the item list you will find on the returns form.
2) Enclose your completed returns form together with the item.
You can pack your shipment in the same box or bag that you received it in.
3) Send your package with your returned items to

Please note! We do not receive packages sent by 'cash on delivery' or suchlike.
Once we have received your returned parcel at our warehouse in London, we will process it as soon as possible. When we have processed your returns you will receive an e-mail. The amount of the returned item(s) will be returned to your account. Please note that it may take 2-30 days for the amount to reach your account it depends on your card provider.
Exchanging for something else
If you return your product as a shipment, unfortunately we don't have the capacity to exchange it for another colour, size or item. Fortunately, there is an easy way to solve this: If you'd like a different size or colour, or maybe a completely different item, you just return your item as mentioned above, and then place your new order on www.lucavanucci.co.uk.
The condition of the item upon return
You will only be liable for any diminished value of the goods resulting from the handling other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and the way they work. In other words – you can try on the item in the same way as if you tried it in a physical store.
If the item has been tried more than what is outlined above, we consider it as used, which means that when using the right of withdrawal, you will only receive part or none of the purchase amount back, depending on the product's commercial value.
Right of Withdrawal
You have the right to change your mind about an order of purchase or agreement without giving reasons within 14 days.
The withdrawal period expires 14 days after the day you receive your delivery, or the day you receive the final item delivered, in connection with an order containing several items that have been ordered in one order but have been delivered separately or in several parts.
You must notify us within 14 days of receipt that you wish to cancel your purchase. The notice should be given by writing to LucaVanucci.co.uk. In your message, you should clearly state to us that you wish to exercise your right of withdrawal. You can also choose to use our standard withdrawal form and send it back to us. You will find a 'Standard Withdrawal Form' at the bottom of this page.
When using the right of withdrawal, you should also return the goods without undue delay and no later than 14 days from the date you have informed us about exercising the right to withdraw from this agreement. We recommend that you save the receipt as proof that you have delivered the package to the post/shipper.
We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest.
When exercising your right to withdraw from this agreement, we will refund all payments received from you in relation to the specific order – including delivery costs (excluding additional costs as a result of your own choice of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us), without undue delay and in any event within 14 days from the date we receive notice of your decision to withdraw from this agreement. We will carry out such reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise. In any case, you will not be subject to any fees as a result of the reimbursement.
You will only be liable for any diminished value of an item resulting from the handling, other than what is necessary for trying it on as if you would have in a physical store.
All stated prices of goods, delivery costs and other expenses include taxes, VAT and duties. Costs relating to the delivery, freight or postage may vary and are added separately for each order. We reserve the right to tax changes, price and typo errors, etc.
Updating the website
We do our best to update the web shop and ensure that prices, offers, descriptions and other information about the goods are correct. However, spelling mistakes, pricing errors, offers, descriptions and other information about the products can occur, and sometimes we discover that the price for an item has been incorrectly displayed.
We are not responsible for delays or failure to comply with our obligations under the Terms and Conditions if the delay or failure is caused by events outside our reasonable control.
If one or more provisions in the Terms and Conditions have had to be declared fully or partially invalid, the other provisions continue to be applicable.
