2. SCOPE OF APPLICATION
These T&Cs are applicable to all Product sales which occur through the Site, and, therefore, must be carefully reviewed by the Customer before completing the Product sales procedure.
Every time a Product purchase order is sent through the Site, it is presumed that these T&Cs have been read and accepted. The same applies to the terms and conditions of payment set out hereafter. The confirmation of a purchase order implies that these General Terms and Conditions are accepted in their entirety. 
By sending a purchase order through the Site, the Customer acknowledges that Abraham Industries is not bound by any general terms and conditions of sale and/or payment, save for these present, unless agreed upon in writing in advance with the Customer.
The T&Cs described here are considered to be applicable and in effect until they are published on the Site. Any changes made to them in the future will be published on the Site and will apply exclusively to orders made on the day following publication.

5. PRODUCT INFORMATION
Only products bearing the Semicouture trademark are available for purchase on the Site. Abraham Industries does not sell products which are used, irregular or which are of a substandard quality compared to market standards. The fundamental Product features are presented on the Site in each product description. The images and colours of the products available for purchase on the Site, however, may not correspond to reality, due to their appearance on the Internet browser or monitor used.
All Products are provided with an identification tag. The Customer must not remove said tag from the Product in case he/she intends to invoke his/her right to cancellation, which may be exercised in accordance with art. 52 of the Italian Consumer Protection Code. If he/she does, Abraham Industries has the right to reject the return of Products which do not possess the relative tag and whose fundamental and quality characteristics have been altered or tampered with, or which have been damaged.

6. PRODUCT ORDERS
A purchase order may be made through the Site by following the steps and instructions set out on the Site. Should this process be performed successfully, Abraham Industries shall immediately communicate that it has received the order, reserving the right to perform a standard check of pre-authorising the Customer’s credit card with the purpose of ensuring that it has sufficient funds to complete the transaction. The order shall be fulfilled once Abraham Industries has received confirmation that the payment of purchase was successful. Upon acceptance of the order, the Customer will receive written confirmation of having entered into the contract. It will contain information concerning the Products ordered, the amount paid, the detailed price of each Product, shipping costs, as well as the existence of the right to cancellation and information concerning assistance services and compliance guarantees for the Product(s) in accordance with current regulations.

Abraham Industries furthermore reserves the option to communicate whether it is possible to fulfil the order within 10 days from receipt of the purchase order. The order cancellation will follow immediately, and the entire amount reserved for payment, including shipping fees, will be released simultaneously. Such circumstances may occur in the event that merchandise sells out, if the order does not correspond to normal sales needs (by way of example and by no way of limitation, this will be evaluated based on the number of products purchased in a single order if multiple orders for the same product are received, etc.) or due to a case of force majeure.

7. PAYMENT
Every payment that the Customer makes may take place exclusively using the credit cards indicated on the Site, or via PayPal.
The total order amount is authorised on the Customer's credit card or PayPal account as soon as the purchase order is sent to Abraham Industries, subject to its acceptance by the same in accordance with the provisions of art. 7 of these T&Cs.
With regard to payment, the Customer must:
- if payment is made using credit card, confirm the card holder data for the card used for the purchase; then communicate the 6-digit number and expiry date via the Site, as well as the relative CVC;
- if payment is made using PayPal, enter the log-in details into the appropriate fields on the PayPal pages, to which the Customer will be automatically redirected, to then complete the payment according to the methods indicated by the administrator of such payment system.
The order transmission process will be considered concretely completed following completion of the payment operations, once the Customer is redirected to the Site’s order confirmation page. 

8. PRODUCT PRICE
The price for every single Product present on the Site refers to the relative product and is expressed in euros, including VAT.
Shipping costs are not included in the Product price; instead, they are indicated and calculated before the purchase order is sent and before payment is made. The Customer is liable for such fees. 

Any offers or special conditions promoted by the Seller are valid until the date indicated on the Site or as long as supplies last; in each case, they are subject to the Seller’s actual availability for each Product.

9. DELIVERY 
Abraham Industries delivers throughout Italy via BRT S.p.a., and in other countries belonging to the Eurozone via UPS. 
Together with the sales draft, the Product purchased will be delivered via courier to the address specified by the Customer once the online purchase order is sent. Delivery will be made at the latest within 30 days from the execution of the contract, in accordance with the provisions of art. 61 of the Italian Consumer Protection Code.
The Products delivered will become the Customer's property upon receipt, with consequent loss of or damage to the Products being the Customer’s responsibility from that moment on. Therefore, the Customer is invited to refuse the package or accept the delivery from the carrier under reserve, should the package have been tempered with or not be intact upon delivery. He /She is invited to promptly inform our customer service.

9.1 DELIVERY WITHIN ITALY
If the recipient is not available or if another authorised person is not available to receive the shipment upon first attempted delivery, the express courier shall leave a notice containing information on the attempted delivery, as well as the codes and contact information to allow for a subsequent delivery time to be agreed upon. Should the courier not receive different instructions from the Customer, it shall make a second delivery attempt, which, if unsuccessful, will result in the package being stored at the BRT location closest to the Customer’s address for the 10 subsequent days. Beginning on the storage date, the Customer may go to said location where the Product(s) is being held, with an ID, and pick up the package. If the Customer does not pick up the Product(s) by the end of the 10-day period indicated in the foregoing, the Product(s) will be returned to Abraham Industries, and the amount charged for the Product will be reimbursed, minus any shipping fees.
If the Product(s) is not delivered to the Customer within 5 working days from the date of shipping, communicated by Abraham Industries to the Customer simultaneously, and it is not possible to trace the item's location through the online system made available to the Customer, the Customer must inform Abraham Industries that delivery has not taken place by means of the Contact page in the Customer Service area on the Site. Abraham Industries commits to guarantee a new shipment of the missing Product(s) within 48 (forty-eight) hours following communication of such. In the event of the unavailability of said Product(s) or of force majeure, an order cancellation will follow immediately and the amount authorised for payment will be returned immediately.

9.2 DELIVERY ABROAD (EUROZONE COUNTRIES)
If the recipient is not available or if another authorised person is not available to receive the shipment upon first attempted delivery, if there is an access point within a 5 km radius of the Customer’s address, the courier will leave the Product(s) there, where they will remain stored for the 10 subsequent days; a notice will be left containing information on the attempted delivery, as well as the codes and contact information for the access point. The Customer must bring an ID in order to be able to pick up the Product(s) within this time period; alternatively, he/she may request that it be delivered to an address that he/she has communicated. If the Product(s) has not been picked up by the end of the 10 days referenced above, the order will be returned to Abraham Industries, with the cost of the Product, minus shipping fees, being reimbursed at the same time.
If there is no UPS access point within a 5 km radius of the Customer’s address, UPS shall leave a notice containing information on the attempted delivery, as well as the codes and contact information to allow for a subsequent delivery time to be agreed upon. After the first delivery attempt, two additional attempts will be made in the same manner (notice and option to agree upon a delivery time with the courier). If the recipient is not available or if another authorised person is not available to receive the shipment upon the third and final delivery, the courier will leave a notice stating that the order has been returned to Abraham Industries. The Customer will be reimbursed for the cost of the Product, minus shipping fees.
If the Product(s) is not delivered to the Customer within 5 working days from the date of shipping, communicated by Abraham Industries to the Customer simultaneously, and it is not possible to trace the item's location through the online system made available to the Customer, the Customer must inform Abraham Industries that delivery has not taken place by means of the Contact page in the Customer Service area on the Site. Abraham Industries commits to guarantee a new shipment of the missing Product(s) within 48 (forty-eight) hours following communication of such. In the event of the unavailability of said Product(s) or of force majeure, an order cancellation will follow immediately and the amount authorised for payment will be returned immediately.

10. RIGHT TO CANCELLATION AND RETURN
In accordance with current legal provisions, and, in particular, in accordance with art. 52 of the Italian Consumer Protection Code, the Customer has the right to withdraw from the purchase within 14 calendar days from the date the Product(s) is received; he/she will then be reimbursed for the cost of the order in question after exercising such right, minus the fees required to return the Products in the case described in art. 11.1, equal to 9 EUROS, which the Seller shall withhold from the amount that it owes to the Customer. 
Should the Customer decide to use a courier different from the one selected by the Seller, in contrast to the provisions of art. 11.1, and to independently return the Products in case of cancellation, he/she must directly bear the cost of returning the Products to the Seller.

Irrespective of the means of cancellation selected by the Customer, the Product must be returned intact and unused, along with the original packaging and any accessories, in the same condition in which it was received, within and not beyond 14 calendar days from the day the cancellation of purchase was communicated.
In particular, the Customer must ensure that:
- the Product has not been used or been damaged whilst being tried on;
- the Product is not dirty and has not been washed;
- the Product has all movable accents, labels and original finishes;
- the Product has not undergone changes of any type.
If the return does not satisfy the conditions laid out above, or if the Products returned by the Customer are damaged, incomplete, deteriorated and/or dirty, reimbursement will not be provided and they will be returned to the Customer, who shall bear the courier fees for the return.
The Customer will be informed through email whether the return was accepted or rejected.
To exercise the right to cancellation, the Customer may use the cancellation form under appendix I, part B of the Italian Consumer Protection Code, or complete and send said form online in accordance with the following methods:

10.1 RETURN VIA E-COMMERCE PLATFORM
The Customer who intends to avail of such right through the Site must access his/her account under the appropriate order section and fill out the return form by accessing his/her order history on the Site.
 The Customer must also indicate on this form:
- his/her general information;
- the order details and select one of the indicated reasons;
- his/her choice on how to receive reimbursement for the amount paid, minus fees for return shipping, if paid in advance by the Seller, or a credit in the same amount to be put toward a new purchase.
Once this request is sent, the Seller shall without delay transmit a confirmation receipt of the exercised right on a durable medium.
For returns within Italy, the Product must be delivered to BRT, who will travel to the Customer’s address within 24 hours of the request.
For returns from other countries of the Eurozone, the Customer must apply the return label found in the delivered package and return it to UPS, who will travel to the Customer’s address within 5 days of the request. 
The procedures for return to the courier engaged by the Seller are specified on the Site. The Seller shall pay in advance the costs to return the Products via the courier engaged by Abraham Industries on behalf of the Customer; the Seller shall withhold the cost from the amount owed to the Customer.
Specifically, if the Customer intends to avail of the courier engaged by the Seller to return the Products, such Products will be delivered to the courier engaged by the Seller at the location where the Products were delivered by the Seller at the time of sale. The Customer may contact the courier engaged by the Seller directly to agree upon a different location for such delivery, provided that it is located in the same country in which the Seller delivered the Products. 
If the Customer wishes to use return methods other than those offered by the Seller, or wishes to independently arrange for the delivery of the Products to the Seller, he/she must bear all relative costs and fees directly.

11. REIMBURSEMENT IN CASE OF CANCELLATION OR ISSUING OF CREDIT
In case the right to termination is exercised according to the methods and terms and in accordance with the provisions of art. 11 of these General Terms and Conditions, the Customer has the option to either select a reimbursement for the amount paid, minus the cost of return shipping if the Products are returned via the courier engaged by the Seller in accordance with the provisions of art. 11.1, or he/she may opt for a credit for the same amount which can be used in accordance with the terms and conditions set out in this article. 
If the amount paid is reimbursed, the Seller's agents shall ensure that the Product has not been used or damaged (for more information, see the conditions for returned Product integrity as set out in art. 11). 
The Customer will then receive a confirmation email concerning the return’s status; Abraham Industries shall credit the corresponding amount paid for the returned Product(s), minus the cost of return shipping if paid in advance by the Seller pursuant to art. 11, by means of the payment method selected at the time of purchase and within 14 calendar days from receipt of the item, or within 14 days from the date the Seller was informed of the Customer’s decision to cancel, in accordance with foregoing art. 11.1. 
If the amount reimbursed is incorrect, the Customer must contact Customer Service to quickly resolve the problem. 
If a credit is requested, such credit will be sent via email to the address indicated by the Customer within 14 calendar days from the decision to cancel or from receipt of the Products if the return is arranged independently by the Customer; the credit will be valid for three months following its issue date and can be used by the Customer to make subsequent purchases. The credit must be used in one shopping session.

12. UNORDERED OR DAMAGED ITEMS OR ITEMS WHICH DO NOT MATCH ORDER SPECIFICATIONS
We wish to inform the Customer that the Seller subjects its garments and Product packaging materials to strict quality controls, guaranteeing that they are sold in perfect condition. Furthermore, to provide additional protections to distance shoppers, every single garment shipped by the Seller is checked before shipping. 
If the colour of the garment received does not match the expected colour selected upon purchase, the Customer may return it according to the terms of the cancellation period (14 calendar days from Product delivery to communicate the request for cancellation and 14 calendar days following such communication to deliver the return to the courier), following the return procedure set out under art. 11 and 11.1, or by returning the Products to the Seller using a courier different than the one engaged by the Seller. If the Product is damaged or was not ordered by the Customer, it may be returned immediately following the procedures indicated in art. 11.1 and specifying the reason for return. The costs of return shipping shall be borne entirely by Abraham Industries.  
If there is evidence that the package was tampered with or was not intact upon delivery, and that, consequently, the Product was damaged during transport, the Customer must refuse the package or accept it under reserve. Abraham Industries shall provide reimbursement for a Product that was damaged during shipping by the courier, provided that the Customer has communicated such damage in writing to customercare@abrahamindustries.it within the 48 (forty-eight) hours following the refusal of the package or its acceptance under reserve, pursuant to foregoing art. 10.
If even one of the conditions set out above is not observed, Abraham Industries shall not credit the amount paid, nor shall it replace the Product, which, in this case, will be immediately made available to the Customer to be picked up, at his/her cost. In this case, Abraham Industries shall communicate such refusal via email and shall indicate the location where it may be picked up.
Lastly, in no case can tailoring requests for purchased garments be honoured.
Similarly, Abraham Industries shall not provide reimbursement for costs borne by the Customer for tailoring adjustments and/or changes to purchased garments, which, therefore, shall be borne exclusively by the Customer.
In cases of defective products, the Customer is always and in any case invited to contact Customer Assistance as soon as possible, within the Product’s return period, in order to discuss any arrangements.

13. CONFORMITY - GUARANTEE
As regards conformity guarantees for purchased Products, in addition to the provisions of these T&Cs, legal guarantees are also applicable to the sale of Abraham Industries’ Products. Reference is made to articles 129, 130 and 132 of the Italian Consumer Protection Code concerning the Customer’s rights in relation to Abraham Industries in case of Product non-conformity and how such rights are to be exercised.

14. COMPLAINTS, COMMUNICATION AND INFORMATION
For any information or complaint, or for any communication concerning the General Terms and Conditions, orders and/or Semicouture Products, for correspondence the Customer may contact Customer Service via customercare@abrahamindustries.it, in the Customer Service section of the Site.
The Customer may contact Customer Service free of charge via email by completing the appropriate form online.
Should the Customer decide to use a channel or form of communication (by way of example: ordinary post, fax or a reverse charge call to Abraham Industries) other than those described in the foregoing, Abraham Industries shall not be bound in any case to reimburse any relative costs borne by the Customer.

15. FORCE MAJEURE
Abraham Industries’ execution of the services may only be suspended in a case of unforeseeable circumstances or force majeure, including acts of nature which prevent or delay execution. By way of example and by no way of limitation, war, uprisings, riots, strikes and Abraham Industries’ supply problems ascribable to third parties are considered such events. Abraham Industries shall inform the Customer in case of unforeseen circumstances or force majeure within 7 (seven) days from the occurrence of such events. Should the execution of services be suspended for more than 15 days, the Customer shall have the option to cancel his/her purchase and will be reimbursed for any amounts that have already been paid.

16. APPLICABLE LAW AND COMPETENT COURT
These General Terms and Conditions are governed by Italian law. In case of disputes arising from the interpretation, validity and/or execution of these General Terms and Conditions, the compulsory territorial jurisdiction falls to the judge of the Customer's domicile or place of residence.

17. PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA
Abraham Industries uses the personal data supplied by the Customer to sell the Products and services necessary to operate and make use of the Site, as well as to execute the contract between the parties, in accordance with current law concerning the protection of personal data.
