1. Our Business Policy
The Vendor offers products for sale on www.armani.com and its e-commerce business services are available exclusively to its end users, i.e. the "Consumers".
"Consumer" shall mean any individual who is acting for purposes which are outside his or her trade, business or profession. If you are not a Consumer, please do not buy any products on www.armani.com.
The Vendor reserves the right not to process orders received from users who are not "Consumers" and any other order which does not comply with the Vendor's business policy.
These General Terms and Conditions of Sale (together with the documents referred to herein) regulate the offer, transmission and acceptance of purchase orders relating to products on www.armani.com between the users of www.armani.com and the Vendor.
The General Terms and Conditions of Sale do not regulate the supply of services or the sale of products performed by third parties that are on www.armani.com through links, banners or other hypertext links. Before sending orders and purchasing products and services from those third parties, we recommend that you verify the third party's terms and conditions, since the Vendor shall under no circumstances be deemed liable for the supply of services provided by third parties or for the execution of e-commerce transactions between the users of www.armani.com and third parties.
2. How to Execute a Contract with the Vendor
To place an order for the purchase of one or more products on www.armani.com, you must fill out the online order form and send it electronically to the Vendor, following the relevant instructions.
The order form contains a summary of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale, information on the main characteristics of each product ordered and corresponding unit price (including all applicable fees and taxes), the type of payment that you may use in order to purchase each product, shipping terms for the purchased products, shipping and delivery costs and the terms and conditions for returning purchased products.
An order shall be deemed to have been submitted when the Vendor receives your order form electronically and the order information has been verified as correct.
Before submitting your order form for the purchase of products, you will be asked to carefully read the General Terms and Conditions of Sale, to print a copy using the print option and to save or reproduce a copy thereof for your own personal use.
The order form will be filed in our database for the time required to process your order and as provided by law. You may access your order form by clicking on the section called My Order, in the Customer Care area.
Before submitting the order form, you will be asked to identify and correct possible input errors.
English is the language used for executing contracts with the Vendor.
After your order form has been submitted, the Vendor will process your order.
The Vendor may not process purchases when there are not sufficient guarantees of solvency, when orders are incomplete or incorrect, or the products are no longer available. In the above cases, we shall inform you by email that the contract has not been executed and that the Vendor has not carried out your purchase order specifying the reasons thereof. If the products displayed on www.armani.com are no longer available at the time of your last access and once the Vendor has received your order form, the Vendor shall inform you of the unavailability of the ordered products within thirty (30) days from the day after Vendor has received your order. If the order form has been sent and the price has been paid for items that are no longer available, the Vendor will refund the amount paid for those items.
By submitting an order form to and making a contract with the Vendor, you unconditionally accept and undertake to observe the provisions of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale. Should you not agree with certain provisions of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale, please do not submit your order form for the purchase of products on www.armani.com.
Upon submission of an order form, the Vendor shall send you a purchase order receipt email, containing a summary of the information related to the order form (General Terms and Conditions of Sale, the products' main characteristics, detailed information on the price, terms of payment, return policy and shipping costs).
3. Guarantees and Product Price Indication
On www.armani.com, we only offer products marked with the "GIORGIO ARMANI" trademark. These products are purchased by us directly from the fashion house and/or the manufacturer authorised by the fashion house.
The Vendor does not sell second-hand products, flawed products or products of lower quality than the corresponding market standards.
The main characteristics of products are shown on www.armani.com on each product page. The products offered for sale on www.armani.com may not exactly correspond to the real garments in terms of image and colours due to the Internet browser or monitor used.
Prices are subject to change and will be as quoted on our site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error. Check the final price of sale before sending the relevant order form.
Orders made from a Country site different from the one you are shipping to, or to addresses to which the Vendor cannot ship, will be automatically cancelled.
All Products sold by www.armani.com come with an identification tag attached with a disposable seal. When trying on the products you should not remove or alter the tag or seal from the purchased products should you wish to return the purchased product.
As a Consumer (as defined at section 1.2 above), you are entitled to various statutory warranties including a warranty that the products supplied to you conform with your contract with us.
All products sold by the Vendor are covered by a guarantee for lack of conformity, as provided by the applicable law (6 years in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and 5 years in Scotland). You shall inform the Vendor of the existence of any such lack of conformity within a period of two (2) months from the day when you detected the lack of conformity. Please contact our Customer Care.
In case of lack of conformity, you may choose between the repair or replacement of the product. If these remedies are impossible or disproportionate you are entitled to either require the Vendor to make an appropriate reduction in the price or to terminate the contract.
Payment of the product prices and relevant costs for shipping and delivery must be made by using one of the procedures indicated on the order form.
In case of payment by Credit/Debit Card, all details (for example, card number or expiration date) will be sent by encrypted protocol to Banca Sella or other banks which provide remote electronic payment services, without third parties having any access thereto whatsoever. Such details will not be used by the Vendor except for performing the procedure relevant to your purchase or issuing refunds in the case of returns in compliance with the exercise of your return right or for reporting cases of fraud to the police. The price for the purchase of products and the corresponding costs for shipping and delivery, as indicated in the order form, will be charged to your current account only when the purchased products are actually shipped.
5. Shipping and Delivery of the Products
You may choose to receive the items purchased at the preselected address, or at an Armani store in the country where you made the purchases, selected from among those indicated on www.armani.com. If you chose the “Pick up from store” method, we will inform you via email when your order has arrived to the store. In this case, you should pick up the items within fifteen (15) days of the aforementioned communication, showing the sales assistant a copy of the email confirming shipment and a piece of identification. If you have another person pick up the order, this person will also need to present, in addition to the email confirming shipment of the order, a photocopy of their own identification document, along with a letter of delegation and your identification document. Should you fail to pick up the products within this period, the contract for purchase shall be understood to have been automatically terminated, and you will be subsequently refunded the amount paid. Furthermore, we remind you that it is not possible to make payment at the point of sale. Therefore, the cash on delivery method is not provided for whenever you choose delivery to a store. The delivery to store method carries no additional cost, and the delivery times offered are the fastest available. For specific product shipping and delivery procedures see the Customer Care Area, and read the Shipping section Customer Care area. Please read these sections carefully. The information provided in these sections forms an integral part of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale and, consequently, shall be deemed to be fully read and accepted by you at the time your order form is sent.
