5. Prices - Accepted payment methods
The prices of Products are stated in Local Currency where the order is placed and include any applicable sales taxes, plus any eventual international delivery costs and fees (“Delivery Costs”) and, if applicable and available for pre-payment, any eventual import duties, tariffs and similar fees that may be imposed by the delivery destination (“Import Charges”). Without advanced notice and from time to time, Delivery Costs and/or Import Charges could be covered, partially or fully. The Website will provide details about such offers before completing and placing the order.
5.2. Import Charges
For certain delivery destinations and/or Products, the customer may be offered the option to pre-pay applicable Import Charges, which will then be calculated and added or included in the final price when he/she place the order. In certain cases, the price of the Product may already be inclusive of Import Charges.
In the event that the option to pre-pay applicable Import Charges is available and the customer choose to pre-pay such Import Charges, or if the Import Charges were already included in the price of the Product, his/her final price will be fully guaranteed, and the actual Import Charges will be paid on his/her behalf to the applicable authorities, as determined by his/her delivery destination upon import of his/her order.
Our partner Global-e may contract with a local licensed customs broker in the destination. Agreement to these Terms serve as an authorization for the applicable customs broker to act as your agent to: (i) conduct transactions with the local applicable authority, (ii) complete, submit and execute related documents on your behalf in connection with the import of Products in your order, (iii) facilitate the payment of applicable Import Charges; and (iv) if applicable, return such Product to GIVENCHY (subject to these Terms). However, you acknowledge that, in the case of a return of Product, you (and not GIVENCHY, Global-e or anyone on their behalf) will be fully responsible for claiming back such Import Charges from the applicable tax authority, to the extent possible, and neither Global-e, nor GIVENCHY shall have responsibility or liability in connection with such claim.
The customer may decide not pre-pay the Import Charges at Checkout, or the option to pre-pay Import Charges may not be available for its delivery destination or the Product. In such cases (i.e. where pre-pay does not apply): (i) the customer are advised that the amount of Import Chares displayed under the pre-pay option on the checkout may not reflect the actual Import Charges payable by him/her as determined by his/her delivery destination’s relevant authority, which may be more or less than such estimate: and (ii) the customer will be fully responsible for paying all applicable Import Charges directly to the relevant authority (and for reclaiming them in the event of a cancellation or a return of Products, to the extent permitted in these Terms) as determined by the authorities of the delivery destination, and neither Global-e nor GIVENCHY shall have any responsibility or liability in connection with the foregoing. Moreover, if customer fail to pay Import Charges without reasonable reason causing the liability to fall on GIVENCHY, Global-e or the carrier, the liability amount of Import Charges may be deducted from any refund or other amounts customer may claim, to the extent permitted under applicable law.
If customer elected not to pre-pat Import Charges, or failed to pay Import Charges, or refused to accept Products otherwise than in accordance with the return or cancellation procedure under these Terms, in each case resulting with the Products being returned or needing to be returned, then customer may be liable for the return delivery costs and may not be reimbursed or refunded for Delivery Costs paid by him/her for making the delivery to him/her. GIVENCHY may also charge customer with additional direct or indirect charges resulting from said failure or refusal, to the extent permitted under applicable law. GIVENCHY may, if that is in accordance with these Terms, reimburse and refund customer for the cost of the Products, but not the Import Charges which may or not be reimbursable by the relevant authority.
5.3. Accepted payment methods
The customer may pay with the payment methods specified at Checkout. The availability of such payment methods is dependent on his/her geographical location. The customer agrees to pay in full the prices and in advance for any purchases he/she make either by credit or debit card concurrent with his/her online order or by other payment means acceptable.
The customer acknowledge and agree that (i) he/she will be charged by Global-e or one of its third party payment processors (“Payment Processor”), through the payment method he/she have selected for his/her order and such other amounts payable under these Terms that may be due in connection with the order; (ii) he/she will provide valid and current information about himself/herself (iii) Givenchy may use the tools, software or services of Payment Processors to process transactions on our behalf; and (iv) he/she may be charged with additional fees (such as foreign transaction free or cross border fee) or charges imposed by his/her bank or credit/debit card issuer, and as these are not our charges or fees, GIVENCHY have no control over such charges or fees nor do GIVENCHY have any way to mitigate such charges or fees, as this is purely up to the relationship and commercial terms between the customer and customer bank or credit/debit card issuer, and GIVENCHY also have no way of knowing in advance whether customer will be charged such charges or fees, as each bank and credit/debit issuer has its own policy, and GIVENCHY commitment is to acquire the amount set at checkout in the customer local currency.
Depending on customer location, payment may be routed through Global-e’s affiliate (i.e. Global-e Australia Pty Ltd).
If the payment method selected by the customer at checkout supports an authorization mechanism (e.g., most credit/debit cards), when the order is placed, only the applicable amount will be authorized. The customer will be charged only after the Product has been dispatched to him/her, unless the order is a “pre-order” or a similar type of order, in which case the charge could be made even before the Product has been dispatched, depending on the particulars of the pre-ordered Product. If the payment method that customer selected does not support an authorization mechanism, the charge will be immediate upon placing the order (or such other timing set by that specific payment method you used, if applicable). The customer will be charged the full order amount even if the order is dispatched in parts. Where PayPal/PayPal Express is offered as a payment method, the full amount of the purchase may be taken immediately following the placement of customer order. Pre-payment shall not affect customer legal rights under these Terms (including for example any right of refund).
In accordance with regulations on personal data protection (French Law “Informatique et Libertés” n° 78-17 of January 6, 1978 amended by Law n° 2004-801 of August 6, 2004, the European General Data Protection Regulation of April 27, 2016, and French implementation law n°2018-493 of June 20, 2018 on the protection of personal data), the customer has the right to access, rectify, and oppose all his/her personal data at any time by writing, via mail and with proof of identity, to GIVENCHY - Customer Service - 159, avenue Charles de Gaulle, 92521 Neuilly-Sur-Seine cedex, France.

The customer must return the Product delivered in a new and unused state, in perfect condition with all protective or other materials in place and tags and stickers attached to them (if applicable), as well as with the original box/container, including all accessories and documents. For footwear, the sole must also be intact: trying on shoes while standing on carpet or rugs is therefore highly recommended. Articles returned incomplete, worn, damages, deteriorated, dirtied or in any other state that could reasonably suggest that they have been used or worn will not be refunded.
Title and risk of the returned Product will not be taken back or assumed until it physically arrives back to the returns facility.
Global-e will refund customer within 14 days from receipt of his/her cancellation, but Global-e can delay refunding to customer if the Product or evidence that he/she returned the Product have not been received by Global-e or GIVENCHY. Global-e will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as customer used for the initial transaction, unless expressly agreed otherwise. In any event, the customer will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement. The customer must be aware that any supplementary costs arising of the fact that the customer chose a type of delivery other than the delivery offered by Givenchy and Global-e will not be refundable.
If the customer has paid Import Charges in connection with its order (either pre-paid at Checkout or paid upon receipt of the order directly to the applicable authority), customer acknowledge that (i) he must seek reimbursement directly form the applicable authority in his destination, (ii) it will be he/she’s sole responsibility to claim such Import Charges back from the applicable authority in his/her destination, and (iii) GIVENCHY cannot guarantee that such claim will be successful.
