(a) On our Website, we only offer products marked with trademarks owned or licensed by "Ermenegildo Zegna HOLDITALIA S.p.A." or its subsidiaries.
(b) We do not sell second-hand or flawed products, and only sell products of the highest quality. The main characteristics of products are shown on the Website. Images of the products offered for sale on the Website may not correspond exactly in colour and appearance to individual products sold.
(c) All products sold through the Website come with an identification tag covered with a disposable seal. When trying on the products you should neither remove nor alter the tag or seal if you wish to return the products under these Terms.
3.1 Order form
(a) If you wish to place an order for products (order), you must fill out the online order form and send it electronically to us. This order is an offer by you to purchase products, and by submitting the online order form you agree to these Terms and accept that they apply to the purchase of the products.
(b) The online order form contains information on the main characteristics of each product ordered as wells as the corresponding unit price (including all applicable fees and taxes) and the type of payment that you may use to place an order. The shipping or collection terms and the shipping costs will be set out in these Terms and can also be found on the Website. Payment for the order will not be taken unless or until we accept the order in accordance with these Terms.
(c) An order shall be deemed to have been submitted when we receive your order form electronically. You may access your order form by clicking on the ORDER HISTORY in the MY ACCOUNT area of our Website.
3.2 Order acknowledgement and assessment
(a) We shall send you an order acknowledgement upon receipt of the order. The order acknowledgement will contain a summary of your order, but shall not be considered a confirmation or acceptance of your order.
(b) If a product included in your order is no longer available at the time of our assessment of the order, we shall inform you of the unavailability of the ordered product within thirty (30) calendar days from the day after we receive your order.
(c) We reserve the right to refuse to process any order for any reason, including where we consider that you are insolvent, where the order is incomplete or incorrect, or when the products are no longer available. When this occurs, we shall inform you of this by an email that states we have not accepted your order and specifies our reasons for non-acceptance.
(d) We will not process payment for your order until we have sent you an email accepting your order under Section 3.3 .
3.3 Order acceptance
If we accept your order we shall inform you of this by email, and a contract will be formed between you and us under these Terms on the date on which we send you the order confirmation email.
4 Price and payment
(a) Prices are subject to change and will be as quoted on our Website at the time of the order, except in cases of obvious error. Please check the final sale price before submitting your order.
(b) Payment of the product prices and associated costs for shipping and delivery must be made through one of the procedures indicated on the order form.
(c) In case of payment by credit or debit card, all details (for example, card number or expiration date) will be encrypted and sent to third parties that provide remote electronic payment services. No other third party will have access to that information, and these details will not be used by us except to take payment for the products ordered, or to issue refunds in the case of returns that comply with your return right or as required by law. The product purchase price and the associated costs for shipping and delivery, as indicated in the order form, will be charged to you only after we have accepted the order under Section 3.3.
(d) When placing an order online, a $1 AUD pre-authorisation will be placed on your credit card. Pre-authorisation is a temporary hold of the fund not an actual charge. We pre-authorise $1 AUD against the credit card instead of charging the full payment immediately. This is to detect fraud, validate the card and prevent over-charges if a product becomes out of stock during the process. The transaction is only completed and full amount charged only after we have accepted the order under Section 3.3. The bank usually holds the pre-authorised fund on your card for 10 days (varies from bank to bank) and releases it automatically.

(c) If the courier is unable to deliver the products (after two attempted deliveries on consecutive working days, each time leaving a delivery notification and trying to contact you on the phone number provided on the online order form) the courier will return the products to us. When this occurs, we will notify you, and this shall be treated as a free return of your order under Section 6(b). We shall provide you with a refund for these products in accordance with the Terms, excluding supplementary costs for expedited delivery options, gift wrapping and other additional expenses.
(a) If you have chosen to collect the products yourself, you may collect the products in your order from one of our stores located in Australia (as specified in your order and confirmed in our order confirmation email) during the store's normal opening hours. If you are collecting the products in person, you will need to show the store a copy of your order confirmation email and a valid identification document (i.e., your unexpired passport or driver’s licence). If you have authorised another person to collect the products on your behalf, this authorised person will need to show the store a copy of your order confirmation email, a copy of your valid identification document (i.e., your unexpired passport or driver’s licence), the authorised person's valid identification document and a letter of authorisation from you stating that you authorise that person to collect the products on your behalf.
