SoHo and related services are made available to you pursuant to the following Terms & Conditions and any other rules posted on our Site. Please read the Terms & Conditions carefully before placing any orders on SOHOBRIDE.COM.AU. We recommend you should keep a copy of the Terms & Conditions for future reference.

In particular, we wish to draw your attention to our policies relating to the terms of purchase within the Terms & Conditions and our Privacy Policy. If you are under 16, you must let your parent or guardian know about SoHo's Privacy Policy before you register to use this Site or any of this Site's services. We reserve the right to only accept orders from those over 18 however.

We may modify the Terms & Conditions from time to time. Please read the Terms & Conditions and check back often. If you do not agree to any change to the Terms & Conditions, then you must immediately stop using the Site. Any changes made after you have placed an order will not affect that order however, unless we are required to make the change by law.

REGISTRATION: To use some of the services or features made available to you on this Site, you will need to register. When you register, you are required to provide information about yourself that is true, accurate, current and complete in all respects.

ELIGIBILITY TO PURCHASE: In order to make purchases through the Site, you will be requested to register and provide your personal details. In particular, Customers must provide their real name, phone number, e-mail address and other requested information as indicated. Furthermore, when ordering items, you will be required to provide payment details and you represent and warrant that the payment details you provide on ordering are both valid and correct and you confirm that you are the person referred to in the Billing information provided.

The Site is available only to individuals and others who meet the SoHo terms of eligibility, who have been issued a valid credit card by a bank acceptable to SoHo, whose applications are acceptable to SoHo and who have authorised SoHo to process a charge or charges on their credit card in the amount of the total purchase price for the merchandise which they purchase.

SoHo reserves the right to restrict multiple quantities of an item being shipped to any one customer or postal address.

By making an offer to purchase merchandise, you agree that we may use Personal information provided by you in order to conduct appropriate anti fraud checks. Personal Information that you provide may be disclosed to a credit reference or fraud prevention agency, which may keep a record of that information.

ORDERS: All orders are subject to acceptance and availability.

SoHo offers products for sale that are in stock and available for dispatch from our distribution centre. Occasionally, however, we may be waiting for shipments from our suppliers. Consequently you may from time to time be given the possibility of making an Advance Payment for certain items in which case you are able to make an Advance Purchase. This will ensure that you receive this item in priority once stock has been delivered to SoHo. Your rights regarding Advance Purchase are the same as those for any other purchase at SoHo.

Alternatively, you may simply choose to register your email address for notification of arrival of the selected merchandise not held in stock.

Items received into stock may be pre-allocated to satisfy Advance Payment orders and customers making Advance Payments will receive items in priority to customers on the Waiting List or customers ordering through the Site for immediate delivery. Please be aware that we may be unable to deliver selected Advance Payment merchandise due to production problems or quality check issues identified when we receive an order into stock. In these circumstances we will notify you by email and refund the Advance Payment to your credit card within thirty days of being advised that merchandise has become unavailable.

If you have registered your email address for notification of the arrival of a specific product featured on our Site, we will attempt to notify you by email within 48 hours of the product becoming available on the Site. Please note that on occasion certain products that are in particularly high demand will sell out during this period.

Please note that items in your shopping basket are not reserved and may be purchased by other customers.

PRICING POLICY: Prices shown on the Site are in AUD and are inclusive of GST at the applicable rate unless you have selected an alternative country where GST is not chargeable. All prices and offers remain valid as advertised from time to time. The AUD price of a product displayed on the Site at the time the order is accepted will be honoured, except in cases of patent error.

Product prices are set at the beginning of each season using existing currency exchange rates. These prices are subject to change if the applicable currency exchange rate changes before your order is accepted or the items are subject to markdowns at any time during the selling period.

For international orders import duty or tax costs will be invoiced to you directly from customs, the shipping company or an import broker appointed by you; we recommend you contact your local customs authority to determine a landed cost price prior to purchase completion.

If you are a customer whose credit card is not denominated in Australian Dollars, the final price will be calculated in accordance with the applicable exchange rate on the day your credit card company processes the transaction.

SALE PRICE ADJUSTMENT POLICY: SoHo is happy to offer a Sale Price Adjustment on items purchased up to 7 days prior to the commencement date of a sale. Please be aware that the exact style and size of an item must be available for purchase at the time your request is made before any adjustment in the sale price can be approved. All approved Sale Price Adjustments will be credited to your SoHo account in the form of a store credit which will be valid for 12 months.

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 marked-down.

ACCEPTANCE OF YOUR ORDER: Once you have made your choice and your order has been placed, you will receive an email acknowledging the details of your order. This email is NOT an acceptance of your order, just a confirmation that we have received it.

Unless you cancel your order, acceptance of your order and completion of the contract between you and SoHo will be completed when we email you to confirm the goods have been dispatched. The sale contract is therefore concluded in Australia and the language of the contract is English.

We reserve the right not to accept your order in the event, for example, that we are unable to obtain authorisation for payment, that shipping restrictions apply to a particular item, that the item ordered is out of stock or does not satisfy our quality control standards and is withdrawn, or that you do not meet the eligibility criteria set out within the Terms & Conditions.

We may also refuse to process and therefore accept a transaction for any reason or refuse service to anyone at any time at our sole discretion. We will not be liable to you or any third party by reason of our withdrawing any merchandise from the Site whether or not that merchandise has been sold; removing, screening or editing any materials or content on the Site; refusing to process a transaction or unwinding or suspending any transaction after processing has begun.

PAYMENT: Payment can be made by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Diners Club, Maestro debit cards, PayPal and any other methods which may be clearly advertised on the Site from time to time. Payment will be debited and cleared from your account upon dispatch of your order by SoHo. You confirm that the credit/debit card that is being used is yours or that you have been specifically authorised by the owner of the credit/debit card to use it. All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment to SoHo, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.

We take all reasonable care to make our Site secure. All credit card transactions on this site are processed using Secure Pay Australia and the National Australia Bank, through a secure online payment gateway that encrypts your card details in a secure host environment. If you are a registered SoHo user, we will securely store your credit card details on our systems. These details will be fully encrypted and only used to process card transactions which you have initiated. To help ensure that your shopping experience is safe, simple and secure SoHo uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.

Furthermore, we will take all reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party gains unauthorised access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the Site.

When are you entitled to seek a refund?

When you receive the goods, or some time afterwards, you may find they do not meet an implied condition. This is a breach of the contract and you are entitled to seek a 'remedy' of your choice, such as a:
  • Refund
  • Repair
  • Replacement (exchange)
  • Online store credit (gift card or voucher)
When you are NOT entitled to seek a refund If there is no breach of an implied condition – for example, if you:
  • Found the goods cheaper elsewhere
  • Were aware of the relevant fault before buying the goods
  • Damaged the goods by misusing them

Our policy: Items should be returned unused, and with all SoHo and label garment tags still attached. Returns that are damaged or soiled may not be accepted and may be sent back to the customer and/or a refund refused. Where provided, any packaging such as authenticity cards, dust bags and leather tags should be included with your return. All items returned should have a Return Authorisation number to ease the process. Unidentified returns may be returned to the sender.

Shoes: All shoes should be tried on a carpeted surface before wear.

Lingerie & Swimwear: Due to health & safety authority guidelines, returns are not accepted for swimwear, lingerie or hosiery.

Faulty goods: Goods are faulty if they are received damaged or where a manufacturing fault occurs within six months of purchase. Please note that items that are damaged as a result of normal wear and tear are not considered to be faulty. If you would like to exchange a faulty item (instead of obtaining a refund), please be aware that we can only replace it for the same product in the same size, subject to availability. Where possible, we will offer to repair faulty items. If it cannot be repaired or the same product is not available, you are entitled to a full refund.

Colours: We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colours of our products that appear on SoHo. However, as computer monitors vary, we cannot guarantee that your monitor's display of any colour will be completely accurate.
