2.1 Registration As part of the process to place an order, you will need to provide mandatory registration information (such as your name, phone number, address) and to register for an account. If an order has already been placed and you wish to make a change to your registration information which would affect your order details, please see Paragraph 5 below. If you wish to make a change to your registration information which does not affect any order details, please make the necessary amendment to your data at https://www.shop.aman.com/en/my-account/.
Upon registration you will be assigned a unique account username and choose your password. You should maintain the security and confidentiality of such credentials. If you are aware or suspect that your credentials were stolen or there has been a security breach in respect of your account, please notify us immediately by firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, by registering your account with us, you will also be able to sign up to receive updates from us, request a cancellation, return or exchange, amend your order delivery details, and to manage your account details and email preferences.
2.2 Order process. You can place orders for our products through https://www.shop.aman.com by clicking on “Add to Bag”. If you have already registered an account with us, you can consequently proceed to the check-out process.
You should note that you will be required to provide your payment details in order to make a purchase on our website, which you represent and warrant are both valid and correct. Further, you confirm that you are the person referred to in the information under the section “Billing”.
Once you have submitted and confirmed your order, we will acknowledge receipt of the order by confirming with you the details of the ordered products. However please note that this is not an acceptance of your order.
2.3 Acceptance. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we send a confirmation email to you to confirm that your order has been received and that payment has been successful. At this point, a contract will come into existence between you and us. This confirmation email from us will contain the order confirmation, billing details, shipping details, payment details and a list of your ordered products. For every successful order, we will follow up with a subsequent email to confirm the shipment of the order with the tracking code.
2.4 Non-acceptance. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and will refund you 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 your payment has not been authorised, or because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product.
3. PRICE AND PAYMENT
3.1.1 The price of the product can be viewed on our website with or without taxes. The final price will vary depending on the delivery address (taking into account local sales tax, shipment costs etc) and can only be confirmed when you confirm the delivery address. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see Paragraph 3.1.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
3.1.2 If the local tax rate changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the tax rate that you will be billed, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the local tax rate.
3.1.3 It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.
3.2 Payment terms.
3.2.1 We accept payment with the following payment methods: Visa, MasterCard and American Express. You must pay for the products before we dispatch them. We will not charge your credit or debit card until we dispatch the products to you.
3.2.2 You should maintain the security and confidentiality of your payment details. If you are aware or suspect that your payment details were stolen or there has been a security breach, please notify us immediately by email@example.com.
3.2.3 The aforementioned payment methods are made available to you through our external service provider Ingenico Financial Solutions SA (“Ingenico”). The recipient of your payment is Aman Group S.a.r.l
3.2.4 Your card details are encrypted during any transmissions for the transactions you carried out at our website. Your payment will require authorisation from the card issuer and if we do not receive such authorisation or if Ingenico does not make the aforementioned payment methods available to you, we will have the right to cancel your order. No ordered products will be shipped until payment has been received or authorised.

If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the contract (see Paragraph 7 – Your rights to end the contract).
5.2 However please note that if you wish to change an order which we are preparing for dispatch (or has already been dispatched to you), we will not be able to make the relevant changes. You will therefore need to return the relevant product to us or end the contract (see Paragraph 8 below).

6.3 If you are not at home when the product is delivered. If no one is available at your address to take delivery and the products cannot be posted through your letterbox, the products will be sent back to the courier’s local depot and we will leave you a note (ie. “Failed Delivery Note”) informing you of alternative delivery options.
6.4 If you do not re-arrange delivery. If you do not collect the products from the courier’s local depot or arrange for re-delivery according to our “Failed Delivery Note”, we will use best endeavours to contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract (see Paragraph 9.1 below).
6.5 When you become responsible for the goods. A product will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the product to the address you gave us or when you collect it from us.
6.6 When you own goods. You own a product once we have received payment in full.

6.7.3 make changes to the order as requested by you or notified by us to you (see Paragraph 5 above).
6.8 We may also suspend supply of the products if you do not pay. If you do not pay us for the products when payment is due (see Paragraph 3.2) and you still do not make payment within 14 days of us reminding you that payment is due, we may suspend supply of the products until you have paid us the outstanding amounts. We will contact you to tell you we are suspending supply of the products.
6.9 Your rights if we suspend the supply of products. We will contact you in advance, as far as possible, to tell you we will be suspending supply of the product. If we need to suspend supply of a product for more than 30 days, you may contact us to end the contract for a product and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the product in respect of the period after you end the contract.
