Terms and Conditions

1.0 Introduction

These terms and conditions, hereinafter called “Terms of Service”, form the basis of the legal agreement under which Sofia Marino Ltd (“we”) will supply the customer (“you”) with the products and services ordered by you on the Sofia Marino website, sofiamarino.co.uk ("Website"). 

1. The Terms of Service published on our Website supplement (and are in addition to) the terms of our Privacy Policy which sets out what personal information we collect about you when you use our services or our Website.

2. Should you continue to use our Website you shall be deemed to have also read, understood and agreed to our Privacy Policy in its entirety.

3. Our Terms of Service shall apply to all users of our Website, including, without limitation, users who are browsers, vendors, customers, merchants, and/or content contributors. By visiting our website and/or purchasing something from us, you agree and accept to be bound by the following: 


2.0 Supply of Goods & Services

2.1 We have taken reasonable precautions to ensure that prices quoted on our Website are correct and that all products have been fairly described. However, when ordering products or services through our Website, you acknowledge that:

    2.1.1 Orders will only be accepted if there are no material errors in the description of the goods or services or their prices as advertised on our Website;

    2.1.2 All prices are displayed in pounds sterling (£) and are inclusive of UK VAT unless expressly indicated otherwise; and

    2.1.3 Packaging may vary from that shown on the Website.

2.2 Product sizes are supplied by the garment manufacturer and we accept no liability for fit or description. The weights, dimensions and capacities shown on the Website are approximate only.

    2.2.1 Whilst we try to display the colours of our products accurately on our Website, the actual colours you see will depend on your monitor and we cannot guarantee that your monitor's display of any colour will accurately reflect the colour of the product on delivery.

   2.2.2 All items are subject to availability. We will inform you as soon as possible if the product(s) or service(s) you have ordered are not available and we may offer you alternative product(s) or service(s) of equal or higher quality and value.

2.3 Prices for our products and services are subject to change without notice. We reserve the right at any time to modify or discontinue our products or services (or any part or content thereof) without notice. We shall not be liable to you or to any third-party for any modification, price change, suspension or discontinuance of any of our products or services.

2.4 The products and services displayed on our Website are exclusive to us and are only available online through our Website. We therefore reserve the right to discontinue or modify them at any time, or limit the quantities of any Products or services that we offer.

2.5 Our products and services are subject to return or exchange only according to our Returns Policy as detailed in Clause 4.0 below.

2.6 We reserve the right to, but are not obligated to, limit the sales of our products or services to any person, geographic region or jurisdiction and we may exercise this right on a case-by-case basis.

2.7 Unless expressly stated otherwise by us in writing, all prices are exclusive of carriage and insurance.

2.8 All deliveries will be sent to the address as supplied on your order subject to payment of all charges by you and as specified on the order. Unless we agree otherwise in writing, all delivery dates are estimated dates which we will use reasonable endeavours to achieve. We cannot be held responsible for our courier failing to deliver for reasons such as no-one being available to sign for the delivery, failure to find the address or due other reasons out of their control, such as weather conditions, breakdown or accident.

2.9 Occasionally, the supply of raw materials for our product(s) or service(s) may be delayed or prevented for reasons beyond our control. For example, material shortages, import delays or higher than anticipated demand. Where this is the case, we will make every effort to keep you informed but we shall be under no liability to you for such delay or failure.


3.0 International Delivery

3.1 Due to customs, legal, regulatory and certain practical restrictions applicable to orders placed for international delivery, some of our products may not be available for delivery to certain destinations outside of the UK. We therefore reserve the right to define what can and cannot be delivered to certain destinations and jurisdictions.

3.2 International Payment – All purchases will be made in pounds sterling. International credit card providers or banks will determine the exchange rate and may add an additional processing or administration charge in relation to such payment which international credit card/bank account holders will be liable to pay.

3.3 Our products and services are sold on a delivery duty unpaid basis. The recipient may therefore have to pay import duty or a formal customs entry fee prior to or on delivery. Additional taxes, fees or levies may apply according to local legislation and customers are required to check these details before placing an order for international delivery.


4.0 Returns Policy

4.1 If you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase please contact care@sofiamarino.co.uk within 72 hours of receipt of the product to obtain a goods return number “GRN”. 

Standard products can be returned up to 14 days from the date of purchase, providing you have a copy of the original receipt and the item has not had the return ribbon removed or been worn or damaged. The product must be returned in the same condition and original packaging in which it was delivered. 

Unfortunately, some of our products and services are non-refundable and these orders cannot be cancelled once an order has been placed. These include:

  • Anything that has been made to your specific requirements, is personalised or otherwise cannot be resold due to a bespoke element;
  • Creative pieces that are specially commissioned when you place an order; and
  • Personal items sold with a hygiene seal (like face masks, snoods, earrings, cosmetics or underwear) where the seal is broken.

4.2 All items being returned shall be at the customers own cost and no refund can be claimed for carriage unless the product is faulty due to a manufacturing defect, whereupon your statutory rights to a refund or exchange are unaffected.

4.3 When returning any product(s), customers must retain the proof of postage certificate from the post office or courier and should have an insured value equal to the price you have paid. The proof of postage certificate must contain a tracking number relevant to the parcel. Once the parcel is received back in our warehouse it will be inspected and a refund will be made within two working days provided the product has not been used or damaged by you.

4.4 When returning an item for exchange or refund, customers must ensure that they pay for adequate insurance of the parcel, equivalent in value to the cost of the items contained therein. Failure to do so will result in the customer remaining liable for the parcel should it be lost in transit during the return. 


5.0 Faulty, Damaged, Incorrect Product and Non-Deliveries

5.1 In the unlikely event that our product arrives damaged or faulty, you must notify us within twenty-four hours of delivery by sending an email to care@sofiamarino.co.uk. Included in your email we will require a copy of the original receipt and photographs of the damage or fault with a short explanation of what you found damaged or faulty, if it is not obvious from the photograph provided.

5.2 If it appears that the product may have been damaged in transit please send us photos of any damaged packaging before removing the product from its packaging. 

5.3 Returns of incorrectly supplied products should also be notified to us at care@sofiamarino.co.uk within twenty-four hours of delivery. 

5.4 Provided you have notified us within the relevant time periods, we will provide you the option of either a refund or replacement. Refunds or replacements claimed outside of the relevant time period will be at our sole discretion.

5.5 The cost of collection and return of faulty, damaged or incorrectly supplied products from you shall be met by us.

5.6 Where faulty goods are returned to us for replacement, we reserve the right to credit or refund the price instead of replacing the product. Your statutory rights are not affected.   

5.7 You must notify us by writing to care@sofiamartino.co.uk of a non-delivery within one working day of the scheduled delivery date. We will then give you the option of a credit or a further delivery of the missing product. If you do not notify us within the stated time limit, we shall not be liable for the non-delivery.

6.3 If we cannot supply you with the product or service you ordered, we will not process your order and we will inform you of this in writing by e-mail and refund any amounts debited from you.
