- Conclusion of a purchase agreement
3.1 The issue of a purchase order by Customer (the “Order”) constitutes acceptance of Furla’s offer to the public through its Sales Channels, and therefore the receipt of the Order by the Company executes a binding purchase agreement for the Products selected by Customer, which shall be fully governed by these General Conditions (the “Agreement”).
3.2 Before confirming the Order, the Customer must review the recap to verify that the selected Products and all the data provided are correct (for example, the Customer may change the quantity of Products she/he intends to purchase by adding or deleting one or more of them from the “shopping cart”) and confirm the correctness of the Order and the acknowledge that the Order is associated with a payment obligation, by flagging the relevant thick-box.
3.3 Once an Order has been received, the Company will send the Customer an email confirming receipt of the Order (at least, within 5 days from the receipt) with the number and details of the Order that has been placed (“Order Confirmation”). Subsequently, the Company will confirm to the Customer that the Order is being shipped (“Shipment Confirmation”), with different timescales depending on the type of shipment selected by the Customer.

All the information related to the Product will be available in the Product’s page or, in general, in the Sales Channel choose by the Customer.
4.2 Furla constantly monitors and updates the stock availability of Products displayed on the Website or at the Points of Sale. However, since the Website may be visited by several Customers at the same time, it may be the case that several Customers intend to purchase or indeed purchase the same Product at the same time. In such cases, the Product may, for a short period of time, be indicated as available, but may in fact be out of stock or no longer available. If a Product becomes unavailable for the reasons indicated above, or in other cases of unavailability, Furla may (including after an Order Confirmation has been sent), contact the Customer using the contact details provided.
4.3 In the case described in art. 4.2 above, the Order will be cancelled, and the price shall be reimbursed to the Customer
- Purchasing Procedures
Purchase through the Website
5.1 In order to purchase a Product through the Website, the Customer can create and/or access their account via the reserved area on the Website, or place an Order as a guest, without creating an account. When making a “guest” purchase, the Customer must correctly fill out the fields of the relevant form on the Website, entering all the data required to execute the Agreement (name, surname, billing and delivery address, email address and telephone number).
5.2 A description and the essential characteristics of Products, including price, maximum products availability, taxes, duties and shipping costs (where applicable) details and composition, fit, colours and colour description (e.g. reflection and nuances), measures and sizes (where applicable) and other information aimed at describing the Product are presented on the Website and/or in the shopping cart within each Product specification, together with one or more photographic images in digital format. Although Furla makes every effort to ensure that photographs displayed on the Website are faithful reproductions of the original Products, the images and colours of Products offered for sale on the Website may not be a perfect representation of the real characteristics of the Product, due to the browser and/or other devices used to access the Website. Furla is not therefore responsible for any inadequacy of the graphic representations of Products displayed on the Website if caused the said technical limitations.
5.3 Furla reserves the right to remove any Product from the Website at any time and/or delete or modify any material or content on the Website. Furla therefore disclaims any liability to Customers or third parties for the removal of any Products from the Website.
5.4 To place an Order, the Customer selects the Products of interest displayed on the Website and places them in the virtual shopping cart (the “Shopping Cart”).
5.5 Before completing the purchase, the Customer must verify the accuracy of the contents of the Shopping Cart, enter any promotional code valid for the Website in the relevant section and accept the General Conditions. The promotional code – if valid – will be immediately applied to the amount displayed in the Shopping Cart. The Customer will then be asked to select the payment method among those indicated on the Website, indicate the billing address, select the desired shipping method and specify the shipping address, if different from the billing address.
Purchasing via Shopping from Home
5.7 The Customer then pays the price of the Products via “Pay by Link” (or PBL) service, using a link provided by the Staff, or by another method of payment selected from those available to the Customer.
5.8 A copy of these General Conditions, together with a summary of the conditions and methods of exercising the right of withdrawal, the address to which any complaints should be sent, and information on support services, will be provided in the Order Confirmation and, in any case, are always available here.
Purchase through other Sales Channels
5.9 CLICK FROM STORE: If, during a visit to a Point of Sale, the Customer wishes to purchase a product that is not available at that Point of Sale, the Customer may purchase the Product via the app available to Staff.
Furla will deliver the Products to the Customer by the methods indicated in Article 7 below.
5.10 CLICK & RESERVE: While browsing the online collection on the Website, Customers can select one or more Products and find the nearest Point of Sale where the Products are available. Using the “click & reserve” procedure, Customers can then book an appointment at a selected Point of Sale to view and/or try on the reserved Product. Furla will send Customer an appointment confirmation email with a reminder and summary of the confidential Product (“Booking Confirmation”).
The Customer can then visit the Point of Sale, present the Booking Confirmation, try the product and decide if purchase the Product or not.
It is understood between the Parties that a Product reserved through the “click & reserve” procedure will be reserved for a period of 48 (forty-eight) hours following the appointment made by Customer on the Website, then Furla is free to sell the Product to another Customer. Due to frequent changes in inventory at Points of Sale, Furla cannot not guarantee the availability of every Product, in this case, art. 4.2 and 4.3 above shall apply.
Price and payment method
5.11 The price of the Products (the “Price”) in Euro and in any applicable local currency, as indicated on the Website and/or indicated by Staff to the Customer, is inclusive of all applicable taxes and charges as well as “standard” shipping costs, unless otherwise indicated on the Website or directly indicated in the subtotal of the Shopping Cart. Any “express” shipping fees are quantified and indicated separately.
5.12 Furla reserves the right to change the Price at any time and without prior notice. It is understood that a changing in Price of a Product does not affect Order already completed.
5.13 The payment methods for the Price and any shipping costs available to the Customer are, depending on the Territory:
(i) credit card [American Express, Bancontact, Cartes Bancaire, Diners Club, Sofort, Discover, JCB, Maestro, Mastercard, Visa];
(ii) Paypal, Amazon Pay, Apple Pay, Alipay, WeChat Pay, Klarna
(iii) the “Pay by Link” (or PBL) service offered by a third-party supplier.
5.14 During the payment process, banks may require additional authentication of the payment (i.a. “Verified by Visa”, “MasterCard Secure Code”, AMEX SafeKey”). Under no circumstances may Furla be held liable for payment errors occurring with a third-party payment service as a result of the absence of a Customer connection, or for direct and/or indirect damage which, for any cause and/or reason, the Customer may suffer as a result and/or consequence of suspensions and/or interruptions in the functioning of the banking institution’s website (including cyber-attacks).
5.15 Should it be impossible for any reason to charge the amount due by the Customer, the purchase process is automatically cancelled, and the Order will not be sent to Furla. Following any failure to conclude the Agreement, Furla shall have no obligation to deliver to the Customer and the Customer shall not be entitled to claim payment of any indemnity and/or damages.
5.16 Any VAT exemptions and/or VAT rate reductions will only be applied if supported by adequate and complete documentation (for example, in order to benefit from a VAT exemption, diplomatic staff must provide a copy of a valid identity document and a declaration issued by the local government authority certifying their status of diplomat; for the purposes of VAT reimbursement, non-EU Customers must provide a copy of a valid identity document determining their place of residence outside the European Union). To this end, the Customer shall send the VAT claim to Furla, together with a copy of the said documents, within 3 (three) months of receipt of the Order Confirmation.
5.17 A tax receipt for the purchase shall be sent to the Customer by email. If requested by the Customer, Furla will issue an invoice based on details provided by the Customer. Once issued, the invoice will no longer be modifiable and will be sent to the Customer by email.
