- If PRADA amends or replaces the Terms and Conditions, any previous version of the Terms and Conditions will not apply to any purchases made after the amended or replaced Terms and Conditions come into effect.

In such circumstances, PRADA will inform the Customer promptly (and in any case within the deadlines specified below) by email that the order placed by the Customer (“Order”) has been cancelled.

- A description of the Products, including measurements or sizes (if applicable), together with one or more images of the Product will be displayed in the Customer's Shopping Bag.
- Although PRADA takes reasonable steps to ensure that the photographs displayed on the Website accurately reflect the original Products, there may be some minor discrepancies due to the technical characteristics and colour resolution of the device used by the Customer. PRADA shall not be responsible for inadequacy of the graphic representations of the Products displayed on the Website due to these factors which are out of its control. Any measurements of the Products given are approximate only, and colours, fabrics and designs of the Products displayed, and the Products delivered to the Customer, may vary in minor respects.

Execution of contract
- All information on the Website is an invitation to treat only and is not an offer by PRADA. The Customer agrees that any Order placed by the Customer is an offer to purchase the Products listed in the Order on the Terms and Conditions. All Orders submitted are offers to purchase which are subject to acceptance by PRADA.
- The Order placed by the Customer shall only be processed by PRADA if the Order process has been completed without any error being reported by the Website.
- After the Customer has successfully placed an Order, PRADA will send an email to the Customer acknowledging that PRADA has received the Order. This email is an acknowledgment of receipt of the Order and does not mean that PRADA has accepted the Order.
- The contract by and between PRADA and the Customer is concluded as soon as PRADA sends the Customer a confirmation email ("Confirmation Email") which confirms PRADA’s acceptance of the Order. The Confirmation Email will include the Order number.
- The Confirmation Email will be sent to the email address provided by the Customer in the Order form.

j. shipping restrictions may apply to a Product;
k. PRADA is unable to fulfil the Customer’s Order; or
l. the delivery address given by the Customer is the address of an entity or individual providing freight forwarding services.
- The decision of PRADA not to accept or to cancel an Order shall be final and binding. PRADA is not required to give reasons for not accepting a Customer’s Order.
- If PRADA does not accept an Order, PRADA shall inform the Customer within 30 days of the date of receipt of the Order. If PRADA does not accept an Order, no contract is concluded between PRADA and the Customer. The Customer will be refunded any amount paid to PRADA in respect of that Order.
Price and Method of Payment
- Prices displayed on the Website are in Australian Dollars (AU$) and inclusive of GST.
- The total price displayed in the Shopping Bag includes shipping costs.
- PRADA will obtain the Customer’s consent before charging any additional costs.
- The Customer will be charged the total price displayed in the Shopping Bag immediately prior to the Customer confirming the Order by clicking the Buy Button. This amount will be charged to the Customer’s chosen payment method once the Order has been accepted by PRADA and is ready for shipment.
- PRADA reserves the right to modify prices at any time and without notice.
- PRADA only accepts the credit/debit cards and other payment methods expressly indicated on the Website.
- For the purposes of credit/debit card payments, the Customer confirms and warrants that he/she is the owner of, or is otherwise authorized to use, the credit/debit card used for the purchase, and that the card information entered at the time of purchase (including but not limited to the credit /debit card number, expiry date and, if applicable, the security code) is accurate.
- PRADA takes no responsibility for, and is not under any duty to verify, the Customer’s ownership of or authorization to use the credit/debit card presented for payment or the accuracy of the card information entered at the time of purchase.
- The Customer will only be charged after:
a. the credit/debit card information has been verified;
b. receipt of the debit authorisation from the relevant card issuing authority; and
c. PRADA has accepted the Order and the Order is ready to be shipped.
- Although the final price is displayed in the Shopping Bag before the Customer clicks the Buy Button, the Customer will not be charged this amount at the time of submission of the Order.
- If the Customer pays by way of another payment method (other than credit/debit card), the Customer confirms and warrants that he/she is the owner of, or otherwise authorized to use, the account used for the purchase. PRADA takes no responsibility for and is not under any duty to verify the Customer’s ownership or authorization to use such account.
- All credit/debit cardholders and payment account holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer or payment method provider. If the issuer of the Customer’s card or payment method refuses to authorise payment, PRADA will not accept the Customer’s Order and PRADA will not liable for any delay or non-delivery. PRADA is not obliged to inform the Customer of the card issuer or payment method provider’s reason for refusing authorisation.
- PRADA is not responsible for any charges or other amounts which may be applied by the Customer’s card issuer or bank or payment method provider as a result of PRADA’s processing of the Customer’s credit/debit card payment or other method of payment to fulfil the Customer’s Order.
- If the Customer’s credit/debit card or payment method is not denominated in Australian Dollars, the final price may be charged in the currency of the Customer’s card or account. Such final price is calculated (and any additional fees charged) by the Customer’s card issuer or bank or payment method provider. PRADA shall not be responsible for any cost, expense, charge or other liability which may be incurred or suffered by the Customer as a result of the Customer’s card issuer or payment method provider charging the Customer in a different currency other than Australian Dollars.
- PRADA will only ship the Products after due payment of the amount owed by the Customer.
- In the event the Customer cannot be charged the amounts due for any reason whatsoever, the Order process shall be automatically terminated and the Order cancelled. PRADA will notify the Customer accordingly.
- PRADA endeavours to ensure that all pricing information on the Website is correct. Occasionally, however, an error may occur (such as a typographical error or similar oversight) and Products may be mispriced. If a Product’s correct price is lower than the price stated on the Website, PRADA will decide either to accept the Order and charge the lower amount and send the Customer the Product or not accept the Customer’s Order. If a Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on the Website, PRADA will, before accepting the Order and at its discretion, contact the Customer and ask the Customer whether the Customer wishes to proceed with the Order at the correct (higher) price, or PRADA may decide not to accept the Order and notify the Customer accordingly. PRADA will not be obliged to accept an Order where the pricing of any Product that is part of the Order is incorrect due to an error.
- Except as provided otherwise below, the Products shall be delivered to the address indicated by the Customer in the Order. A signature will be required upon delivery of the Products. PRADA and its third party delivery services provider will not be responsible for verifying the identity of the person signing to accept delivery. If it is not possible to deliver the Products to the address indicated by the Customer in the Order at the time of attempted delivery (for example, because no one is available at that address to sign for the delivery), the Products may be delivered to a local exchange centre of PRADA’s third party delivery services provider for collection by the Customer. If this occurs, PRADA’s third party delivery services provider shall notify the Customer of the address where the Customer may collect the Products. If the Products are not collected within the period notified to the Customer by PRADA’s third party delivery service provider, PRADA may cancel the Order. In such case the Customer shall be informed of the cancellation and PRADA will promptly refund to the Customer any payments made for the cancelled Order.
- PRADA shall not process or deliver any Order addressed to a post office box or poste restante or accept any Order from a Customer who PRADA suspects may not be a natural person (for example, a company or other incorporated entity).
- The Products offered for sale on the Website may only be purchased and delivered to addresses in the territory indicated above in section 1.5. Any Order with a delivery address outside of this territory shall be automatically rejected by PRADA.
- PRADA shall not be responsible for any delay in delivery or failure to deliver Products if the Customer’s delivery address as provided on the Order form is incorrect, inaccurate or incomplete.
- PRADA will endeavour to deliver the Products purchased within 30 (thirty) days of the date that PRADA accepts the Order. However, if an unforeseen event that is outside the reasonable control of PRADA or its third party delivery services provider affects the delivery of the Order, then PRADA or its third party delivery services will not be liable for any loss, damage, cost or expense suffered or incurred by the Customer as a result of the delay in delivering the Order.
- Any date of delivery provided by PRADA is an estimate only and PRADA will not be liable for any loss or damage caused if the Order is not available or delivered by that date. Similarly, any delay does not relieve the Customer from the Customer’s obligation to accept delivery of and pay for the Order.
- If PRADA does not deliver the Products within the timeframe set out above, the Customer may request that PRADA provide a revised delivery date estimate for when the Products will be delivered to the Customer.
- Either PRADA or the Customer may immediately terminate the Order if the Product(s) ordered are not delivered by the revised delivery date estimate provided by PRADA. PRADA will promptly refund to the Customer any payments made for the terminated Order.
- To the extent permitted by law, the Customer’s sole remedy for any failure to deliver his/her Order shall be the right to cancel or terminate the relevant Order and receive a full refund of any monies paid to PRADA in respect of that Order.
- PRADA reserves the right to split an Order into multiple shipments according to availability of the Products. PRADA shall inform the Customer by email if it intends to do this. The Customer will not pay any additional shipping fees as a result of an Order being split into multiple shipments.
- The Customer will receive an email containing a shipment tracking code and a unique link that will allow the Customer to monitor the delivery (subject to delivery status information being provided to PRADA by its third party delivery services provider).
- If a Customer has any queries relating to shipment or delivery, he/she may contact PRADA's Customer Service by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
- As an alternative to having the Products delivered, the Customer may request to collect the Products from a store. The Customer will have the opportunity to select a store from which to collect at the time of purchase. If the Customer does not collect the Products within seven (7) days of the date on which PRADA sends the Customer an email confirming the Products are available for collection, PRADA may cancel the Order. In such case, the Customer shall be informed of the cancellation and PRADA will promptly refund to the Customer any payments made for the cancelled Order.
- For Orders that are delivered to the Customer’s address, the Customer shall bear the risk of loss or damage to the Products from the moment that they are delivered in accordance with section 6.1. For Orders that are delivered to a store in accordance with section 6.13, risk of loss or damage to the Products will pass to the Customer at the time that the Products are collected by the Customer.
- If the Products are damaged prior to delivery in accordance with section 6.1 or collection from a store in accordance with section 6.13 (as applicable), PRADA will refund the Customer any amount already paid in respect of the Products.
- At the time of delivery, the Customer must check that the packaging and any seals are intact, undamaged, and not wet. The Customer must also check the Products delivered to confirm that they match the Order and that the Products do not show any manufacturing defects or otherwise fail to match the description on the Website.
- The Products come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. The Customer is entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and for compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. The Customer is also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.
- Without limiting a Customer’s rights under applicable laws, in the event of existence of manufacturing defects in the Products ordered, the Customer shall be entitled, within a period of two years from the date of delivery of the Products to request a refund or replacement or repair of the Product in accordance with the remedies in the consumer guarantee provisions of the Australian Consumer Law (as found in Schedule 2 to the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth)) (“Australian Consumer Law”). PRADA acknowledges that the Australian Consumer Law may provide for remedies beyond 24 months in respect of certain Products.
- To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, PRADA disclaims and excludes all other terms, conditions and warranties in relation to the Products and services whether express or implied by statute or otherwise or arising from any previous course of dealing or usage or trade practice.
- To notify PRADA of any defects in the Products, Customers may contact PRADA at the addresses indicated in section 12 below.
Returns and refunds - Withdrawal
- Customers may withdraw from the contract in respect of all or any Products ordered and request to return those Products within sixteen (16) days of the date of sending by PRADA of the Confirmation Email.
- In order to exercise the right of withdrawal, Customers must follow the procedure set out in the Return Information Form enclosed with the Products.
- Provided that the Customer complies with the procedure set out in the Return Information Form, the courier appointed by PRADA shall collect the parcel containing the Products to be returned at no charge to the Customer.

- Products must be returned in the same condition in which they were delivered and should be in their original packaging (unless the Customer would have been entitled to return the Product for non-compliance with a guarantee referred to in section 7.2). The Customer must ensure that the Products are undamaged and complete, never been used or worn and returned in their original packaging, equipped with all the labels, tags and security tags, correctly attached in their original positions as they were received with.
- PRADA shall check the packaging, labelling and condition of each Product returned, and that the Product has been returned in a manner that meets all of the conditions and requirements set out above.
- PRADA reserves the right to reject the return of Products that appear to have been damaged, deteriorated, stained or appear to be in a condition that indicates that they have been used for purposes other than those which are strictly necessary for the Customer to ascertain the nature and features of the Product purchased.
- In the event the return is rejected, PRADA shall send a specific notice to the Customer and shall consequently not proceed to credit the amount paid by the Customer, reserving the right to recover compensation for any damage attributable to the Customer.
- PRADA shall refund any amounts due for the Products returned within seven (7) days of receiving the Products and verifying they are in the required condition.
