Once you are ready to make a purchase, click on "Add to Shopping Bag" to add the Product(s) you wish to purchase to your Shopping Bag. Then proceed by clicking "Proceed to Purchase" to log into our secure servers to complete your Order.
If this is your first purchase on our Site you will have the option to register and create an account with us using your email address and you will also be asked to create a password. You must keep this password confidential and not disclose it to any third party. You will then be asked to input your address. The address that you register with must be the address that the card statement is sent to, however you can use a different delivery address if you so wish. If you have already registered with us you may enter your sign in details to access your account.
Once signed in or registered, as the case may be, you must select your preferred method of delivery (if any delivery charges are payable these will then be added to the amount you will be charged), confirm you wish to make an Order and consent to the Terms of Sale. You will then be asked to confirm your delivery address and input your payment details.
Once you have finished compiling your Order, you will be asked to confirm that your Order is correct. If it is not correct, you can revisit your Order and correct the mistakes before confirming and submitting your Order to us. It is your responsibility to ensure that your Order is correct before submitting it to us.
We will then send you a confirmation email (including your order reference number) to acknowledge that we have received your Order ("Confirmation"). This is sent to the email address you register with us. After sending you the Confirmation we will process the payment details you have given to us to take payment for your Order.
If and when we are able to do so, we will send you a second email confirming dispatch of the Product(s) to the delivery address you have requested and giving you estimated timescales for delivery.
Our acceptance of your Order will be complete only when we send a second email to you confirming your Order and dispatch of the Product(s) and after payment is taken from your credit or debit card. Our acceptance of your Order will be considered for all purposes to have been effectively communicated to you at the time Monica Vinader sends an order dispatched email and it is at this point that a legally binding contract is formed between you and Monica Vinader for the purchase of Products ("Contract").
If we are unable to fulfil your Order, you will receive an email from us informing you that the Order has not been accepted and we will refund the payment for your Order to you.
Only adults (persons aged 18 and over) are entitled to enter into legally binding contracts.
Making a Change to the Contract
If you wish to make a change to the Product(s) you have ordered please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible.
Unfortunately, if we have already sent you the second email referred to in cl 3.8 we are unable to change your Order, although you will still have the rights to cancel described below.
Engraving and Gift Messages
We are unable to process any engraving request or gift card messages containing profanities or inappropriate language. Where possible, we will contact you to seek an alternative engraving or gift message and we will do this before we send you the second confirmatory email in respect of your Order.
As outlined at 11.3 below, you do not have any right to (a) cancel your Contract for supply of any Product/s, (b) refund and Product/s and/or (c) exchange any Product/s that have been engraved or otherwise made to your bespoke specifications (unless such Product/s were damaged, defective or faulty when delivered to you or have been incorrectly delivered).
When you submit your Order, you are offering to buy the Product(s) at the price set out in the Order. All prices are inclusive of VAT in the UK and EU.
Delivery charges (where applicable) and any import duty and taxes incurred will be added to the total amount due when you view the Product(s) in your Shopping Bag. The total cost for the Product(s) and any applicable delivery charges will be displayed before you confirm your Order and will be set out in the confirmatory email you receive from us.
Our prices may change at any time. If we discover that the price for a Product has changed or that there has been a pricing error when we receive your Order we will contact you and ask if you wish to proceed at the correct price. If you confirm that you do wish to proceed, please remember that we will not be under an obligation to supply the Product(s) until we have sent you the second email confirming your Order.
It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Product(s) we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the Product(s) correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the Product(s) correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could reasonably have been recognized by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.

Arbitration Agreement & Waiver of Certain Rights
You and Monica Vinader Inc agree that we will resolve any disputes between us through binding and final arbitration instead of through court proceedings. You and Monica Vinader Inc hereby waive any right to a jury trial of any Claim (defined below). All controversies, claims, counterclaims, or other disputes arising between you and Monica Vinader Inc relating to these Terms of Sale or the offerings (each a “Claim”) shall be submitted for binding arbitration in accordance with the Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA Rules”). The arbitration will be heard and determined by a single arbitrator. The arbitrator's decision in any such arbitration will be final and binding upon the parties and may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. The parties agree that the arbitration will be kept confidential and that the existence of the proceeding and any element of it (including, without limitation, any pleadings, briefs or other documents submitted or exchanged and any testimony or other oral submissions and awards) will not be disclosed beyond the arbitration proceedings, except as may lawfully be required in judicial proceedings relating to the arbitration or by applicable disclosure rules and regulations of securities regulatory authorities or other governmental agencies.
If you demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Monica Vinader Inc will pay as much of the administrative costs and arbitrator's fees required for the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the cost of the arbitration from being prohibitive. In the final award, the arbitrator may apportion the costs of arbitration and the compensation of the arbitrator among the parties in such amounts as the arbitrator deems appropriate.
This arbitration agreement does not preclude you or Monica Vinader Inc from seeking action by federal, state, or local government agencies. You and Monica Vinader Inc also have the right to bring qualifying claims in small claims court. In addition, you and Monica Vinader Inc retain the right to apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for provisional relief, including pre-arbitral attachments or preliminary injunctions, and any such request shall not be deemed incompatible with these Terms of Sale, nor a waiver of the right to have disputes submitted to arbitration as provided in these Terms of Sale.
Neither you nor Monica Vinader Inc may act as a class representative or private attorney general, nor participate as a member of a class of claimants, with respect to any Claim. Claims may not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis. The arbitrator can decide only your and/or Monica Vinader Inc’s individual Claims. The arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated.
If any provision of this Section is found to be invalid or unenforceable, then that specific provision shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed, but the remainder of this Section shall continue in full force and effect. No waiver of any provision of this Section of the Terms of Sale will be effective or enforceable unless recorded in a writing signed by the party waiving such a right or requirement. Such a waiver shall not waive or affect any other portion of these Terms of Sale. This Section of the Terms of Sale will survive the termination of your relationship with Monica Vinader Inc.
This section limits certain rights, including the right to maintain a court action, the right to a jury trial, the right to participate in any form of class or representative claim, the right to engage in discovery except as provided in AAA Rules, and the right to certain remedies and forms of relief. Other rights that you or Monica Vinader Inc would have in court also may not be available in arbitration.
No failure or delay by us in exercising any right or remedy provided by law or under these Terms of Sale and no single or partial exercise of any such right or remedy shall impair the right or remedy, or operate as a waiver or variation of it, or preclude its exercise at any subsequent time.
If any clause of these Terms of Sale is found to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable by any court or authority, that clause or part-clause will be deleted from these Terms of Sale and the validity and enforceability of the rest of these Terms of Sale shall remain unaffected.
Under no circumstances will we be held liable for any delay or failure in performance due in whole or in part to any acts of nature or other causes beyond our reasonable control.
These Terms of Sale will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without giving effect to any conflict of laws rules or provisions. You agree that any action of whatever nature arising from or relating to these Terms of Sale or the Site will be filed only in the state or federal courts located in New York, New York. You consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of any such action.
We may assign our rights and obligations under these Terms of Sale, including in connection with a merger, acquisition, sale of assets or equity, or by operation of law.
From time to time, we may change these Terms of Sale. A regular visit to this page will ensure awareness of any future changes. Your continued use of the Site following such change(s) shall signify your agreement to be bound by our modified Terms of Sale.
