3. ORDERING PRODUCTS FROM THE WEBSITE
All information on the Website is an invitation to treat only and is not an offer or unilateral contract. You agree that your order is an offer to purchase the products listed in your order (“Products”) from us on the Terms. All orders submitted by you are subject to acceptance by us. We may choose not to accept your order in our discretion for any reason whatsoever without liability to you. Examples of when we may not accept your order are as follows:
(a) If the products shown on the Website are out of stock or are incorrectly priced or otherwise incorrectly described or do not satisfy our quality control standards;
(b) If we are unable to obtain authorisation of your payment; or
(c) If shipping restrictions may apply to a Product.
When you place an order via the Website for a Product, we will send you an order confirmation email listing each product you have requested to buy. Please note that our order confirmation email is not acceptance of your order by us.
Once payment has been made for the products you have ordered, we will arrange for the products to be delivered to you and to send you a despatch email. This email confirms that your order has been accepted by us and that a contract is formed.
Where products are dispatched, our acceptance of your offer in respect of each product takes place when we despatch such product.
When placing an order for the first time, you may be required to or may be offered the option to register with us and complete certain required fields on an order form. Each registration is for a single user only. We may provide you with and/or ask you to use identifications and passwords and other means for you to be able to access certain areas of the Website. Where we do so, we do not permit you to share these identifications and passwords with any other person nor with multiple users on a network and it is on the condition that you shall be responsible for ensuring that such Website is kept secure and confidential at all times. You shall comply with all security directions and/or recommendations given by us and inform us immediately if you become aware of or suspect any unauthorised use of the Website or if the Website becomes available to an unauthorised party. Without prejudice to our other rights and remedies, we may suspend your access to the Website without liability to you, if in our reasonable opinion, such action is necessary for safeguarding the Website.
In the event prolonged inactivity causes your connection to the Website to fail, your selection of goods may be lost. In such case, you will be required to re-enter your selection. Please note that items in your shopping basket are not reserved and may be purchased by other customers.
Before you submit your order, you will be given the opportunity to review your selection, check the total price of your order and correct any input errors.
While all the Products sold through the Website will always correspond with their description, variations in both the manufacturing processes we use and also the display properties of the computer hardware you use to view the Website may mean that the colours, fabrics and designs of the Products displayed on the Website and the Products delivered to you may differ in appearance in minor respects.
The packaging of the Products may vary from that shown on the images on the Website.
The price of any products will be as quoted on our Website from time to time. These prices are shown in GBP and include UK VAT (if applicable)/ for USA and Rest of the World in US$/Eurozone in EUROS but exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due. See our Delivery Policy for more information on this.
We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Products are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. If we discover an error in the price of the Products you have ordered, however, we will inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing. Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
If you have selected an alternative country where UK VAT is not chargeable because the product is to be exported from the UK, or if you have selected a product where VAT is not chargeable, then VAT is automatically excluded from your purchase.
DCCW may vary the prices of Products listed on the Website at any time and without any notice but such changes will not apply to Products in respect of which you have been sent a Dispatch Confirmation.
We are unable to offer price adjustment on items originally purchased in a sale or on any special promotion items that are temporarily reduced in price. Once an item has been purchased at a discounted sale price, no price adjustment will be offered should the item be further reduced.
Promotion codes are non-transferable and there is no cash alternative. Furthermore, they cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotion code or offers, and must be redeemed by the date published, if provided. We retain the right to amend or withdraw any promotion/offer at our discretion.

All orders are subject to acceptance and availability, and items in your shopping basket are not reserved and may be purchased by other customers.
We will store a record of your transactions for a minimum of one year subject to any unforeseen event. You may view your purchases in your account up to, and usually beyond, this time. If you do not wish us to store a record of your purchases in your account please Contact us to discuss.

If you order Products from the Website to an international delivery destination your order may be subject to import duties and taxes which are applied when the delivery reaches that destination. Please note we have no control over these charges and we cannot predict their amount. You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes.

We insure products during the time they are in transit until they are delivered to your specified delivery address. Our courier will require a signature for any goods delivered, at which point responsibility for your purchased products passes to you.
Delivery times are estimates and commence from the date of shipping, rather than the date of order. Delivery times are to be used as a guide only and are subject to the acceptance and approval of your order.

Should you wish to cancel or return any Products, you may only do so in accordance with our Returns Policy. This Returns Policy does not affect your statutory rights as a consumer (including, where applicable, your rights under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 or other distance selling or e-commerce regulations in the territory to which the Product is shipped.) For more information on your statutory rights, contact your local Trading Standards Office or Citizens Advice Bureau or the equivalent in your country (if any).
To let us know you have changed your mind and wish to cancel your order or return a Product, please follow the instructions in Delivery and Returns on how to return the product to us.
Where you return a Product we will exchange it for a different size and/or colour or we will issue you with a full refund but you will need to return the Product at your own cost (if you have already received the Product). Where you have paid any duties or taxes directly to the relevant authorities on the importation of the Product you wish to return, DCCW shall have no liability in relation to any claim for a refund of such duties or taxes from the authorities or whether or not such a refund is possible.
If you cancel your order you must return the product to us, including all branded packaging and with the hangtag in place. You have a duty to take good care of the products while they are in your possession. You can still try the product on or inspect it to see if it is right for you, but we ask that you treat our products with the same care as you would in our store. Please do not remove labels or stickers and retain the original packaging (including authenticity cards and dust bags) as neatly as you can.
We will issue you with a refund within 7 working days of receipt of goods, via the payment method you used to place the order.
