ELIGIBILITY TO PURCHASE
In order to make purchases on the Site you will be required to provide your personal details. In particular, you must provide your real name, phone number, e-mail address and other requested information as indicated. Furthermore, you will be required to provide payment details that you represent and warrant 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 CIARA SILKE terms of eligibility, who have been issued a valid credit/debit card by a bank acceptable to CIARA SILKE, whose applications are acceptable to CIARA SILKE and who have authorized CIARA SILKE to process a charge or charges on their credit/debit card in the amount of the total purchase price for the merchandise which they purchase. Products purchased by the buyer are for personal or gift use and should not be re-sold, used for commercial purposes or any other commercial benefit. In addition, CIARA SILKE 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 expressly authorise us to perform credit checks and where CIARA SILKE feels necessary, to transmit or to obtain information (including any updated information) about you to or from third parties, including but not limited to your credit/debit card number or credit reports (including credit reports for your spouse if you reside in a community property jurisdiction), to authenticate your identity, to validate your credit/debit card, to obtain an initial credit/debit card authorisation and to authorise individual purchase transactions.
All orders are subject to acceptance and availability, and items in your shopping basket are not reserved and may be purchased by other customers.
Our shopping pages will guide you through the steps you need to take to place an order with us. Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please take the time to read and check your order at each page of the order process.
After you place an order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received your order. However, please note that this does not mean your order has been accepted. Our acceptance of your order will take place as described in below clause.
Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to confirm dispatch of your product, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and we will refund you any money charged for the product. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified. We reserve the right not to accept an order for any reason.
We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.
CIARA SILKE offers products for sale that are in stock and available for dispatch from our warehouse. 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 be aware that on occasion certain products that are in particularly high demand will sell out during this period.
CIARA SILKE will store a record of your transactions for a minimum of one year.
You have the option of viewing prices in GBP, EUR and USD. Prices shown are inclusive of UK VAT (where applicable) at the current rate. If the country of shipment is outside the UK but within the European Union prices will be shown inclusive of VAT. At the time of checkout, all other countries are shown a price excluding VAT prior to purchase as no VAT will be due on these purchases. Please note that your payment will be charged in GBP.
The price of a product does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as advised to you during the check-out process, before you confirm your order. If you order products from our site for international delivery your order may be subject to import duties and taxes which are applied when the delivery reaches that destination. Please note that we have no control over these charges and we cannot predict their amount.
You will be responsible for payment of such import duties and taxes. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order.
Prices for our products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order you have already placed.
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 CIARA SILKE will be completed when we email you to confirm the goods have been dispatched. The sale contract is therefore concluded in IRELAND and the language of the contract is English. Neither our third party payment processor nor our nominated courier has the authority to accept an order on behalf of CIARA SILKE.
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 TOS.
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.
Whilst every effort is made to make sure details on our website are accurate, we may from time to time discover an error in the pricing of products. If we discover an error in the pricing of a product in your order, we will let you know as soon as possible. We shall be under no obligation to accept or fulfill an order for a product that was advertised at an incorrect price and reserve the right to cancel such an order that has been accepted or is in transit. If you order a product that is priced incorrectly for any reason, we will email or telephone you to inform you that we have not accepted your order and/or that the relevant part of your order has been cancelled. If you have already paid for the goods, we shall refund the full amount as soon as we are able. In the event that products are recalled in transit, we will process your refund once the products have been returned to us.
We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Maestro cards, 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 CIARA SILKE. 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 CIARA SILKE, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.
We take reasonable care to make our Site secure. All credit/debit card transactions on this site are processed using Paypal, a secure online payment gateway that encrypts your card details in a secure host environment. If you are a registered CIARA SILKE user, and opt-in to store your card details, we will do so securely 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, CIARA SILKE uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.
Furthermore, we take 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 procures unauthorized access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the Site.

– Gift Cards are non-transferable, can only be used on the CIARA SILKE Site and may not be returned or redeemed for cash.

– Promotion codes cannot be applied to the purchase of Gift Cards with the exception of free shipping codes which can be applied to printed Gift Card orders.

Promotion codes are non-transferable and there is no cash alternative. Furthermore, they cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotion code or offers, and must be redeemed by the date published, if provided.
The costs of delivery will be as displayed to you on our website.
You will own the goods on and from the later of the point in time when: (a) we receive payment in full, or (b) we deliver the goods to you.
We require a signature for any goods delivered, at which point responsibility for your purchased goods passes to you.
If you have specified a recipient who is not you for delivery purposes (for example as a gift) then you accept that evidence of a signature by them (or a person at their delivery address) is evidence of delivery and fulfillment of the order and you become responsible for the product from this time.
The product will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the product to the address you gave us and you (or a person at your delivery address) have signed for the products.
Please note that we aim to dispatch all orders within 48 hours. Deliveries take place Monday – Friday. Delivery times appearing on the site are estimates and are to be used as a guide only and commence from the date of dispatch. In any event, we will deliver the goods to you within 30 days of the day on which we accept your order. CIARA SILKE is not responsible for any delays caused by destination customs clearance processes.
If delivery is delayed by any event outside of our control, we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this, we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to cancel your order and we will give you a refund for any goods you have paid for but not received.
We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the products to you. We will contact you in writing to ask for this information. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may end the contract. We will not be responsible for supplying the products late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.

CANCELLING YOUR ORDER UNDER THE CONSUMER CONTRACTS (INFORMATION, CANCELLATION AND ADDITIONAL CHARGES) REGULATIONS 2013
If you are based in the EU under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (ICACRs), you have the right to cancel your order with us provided you give us written notice.
RIGHT TO CANCEL UNDER THE ICACRS
You have the right to cancel your order within 14 days without giving any reason.
The cancellation period will expire 14 days from the day after the day on which you (or someone you nominate, other than a carrier) receives the last of the goods.
To exercise the right to cancel, you must inform us by letter to: CUSTOMER CARE DEPT., CIARA SILKE, Woodstock, Bushypark, Galway, Ireland, or by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
For orders cancelled under the ICACRs, we will issue you with a full refund excluding the shipping cost paid by you. We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you.
We will make reimbursement without undue delay, and not later than:
– 14 days after the day we receive back from you any of the goods supplied; or
(if earlier) 14 days after the day you provide us with evidence that the good have been returned; or
– If no goods were supplied, 14 days after the day on which we are informed about your cancellation
We will make reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement.
In the event that we have sent goods to you and you have cancelled your order, we may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back or you have supplied evidence of having sent the goods back, whichever is the earliest. If we do not receive the goods back, we may arrange to have them collected from you at your cost.
You shall return cancelled orders to: CUSTOMER CARE DEPT., CIARA SILKE, Woodstock, Bushypark, Galway, Ireland, without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from day on which you communicate your cancellation of the contract to us. The deadline is met if you send the goods before the period of 14 days has expired.
You will have to bear the cost of returning the goods.
You are only liable for any diminished value of the goods resulting from the handling, other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.
Please note you may only use your right to cancel the order under the ICACRs if you give us formal written notice of cancellation any time after your order has been placed, up until 14 calendar days from the day after you receive your order, by email or post as described above.
Items should be returned unused and with all CIARA SILKE swing tags still attached and in all CIARA SILKE original packaging. Returns that are damaged or soiled will not be accepted and will be sent back to the customer and/or a refund refused.
