Terms and Conditions
Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully! They contain very important information about your rights and obligations, including limitations and exclusions that may apply to you. PLEASE READ THE BINDING ARBITRATION CLAUSE AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER IN SECTION 20 BELOW APPLICABLE TO U.S. RESIDENTS AND BUSINESSES. IT AFFECTS HOW DISPUTES ARE RESOLVED.

Operation of Website and Services and Products
Operation of Website and Delivery of Services and/or Products to U.S. Customers Only
Violet Grey owns the Website. Violet Grey has subcontracted the operation of certain aspects of the Website to Farfetch. As such, Farfetch provides and/or procures certain services on behalf of Violet Grey to enable the operation of the Website and for you to search through the Website and purchase products from Violet Grey. These certain services include, but are not limited to, payment processing, customer service, hosting, and delivery logistics. The specific Farfetch entity procuring such payment processing services will depend on your location.
The Site is offered and available to users who are 18 years of age or older and reside in the United States or any of its territories or possessions. If you are located in the United States then Farfetch.com US LLC will procure the payment processing services. Farfetch.com US LLC is a company registered in the United States and its registered office is at 2301, East 7th Street, Suite A-250 Los Angeles, California, 90023.
The Products sold on the Website are owned by Violet Grey’s partners. Violet Grey, in consultation with the Product owner, attempts to be as accurate as possible in the description of the Products. However, we cannot guarantee that any descriptions are entirely accurate, complete, reliable, or error-free. The images of the Products on the Website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we attempt to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that your computer's display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the Products.
The Products sold are supplied for your domestic and private use only. You agree that you will not use the Products for any commercial, business or re-sale purposes unless you receive prior written permission from Violet Grey. Neither Violet Grey nor Farfetch has any liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
A Hazmat Product contains flammable liquid and is considered a hazardous material by the U.S. Department of Transportation (including but not limited to pressurized spray cans, fragrance, and nail polish). Hazmat Products can only be shipped via ground shipping due to air transport regulations. These Products may not be shipped to Alaska or Hawaii.
Ordering and availability
Products and Services may be ordered by clicking on the products or services you wish to purchase and then following the prompts that will appear on-screen. You may check and correct any input errors in your Order up until the point at which you submit your Order. We generally accept Mastercard, Visa, American Express, Discover, and PayPal. All of these payment options are not available for some Products and Services, and only the payments options allowed will be shown when making payment on your Order.
When you place an Order, you will see an order confirmation page containing your Order number. If you do not see an order confirmation page after submitting your Order, your Order was not submitted successfully. You will also receive an order confirmation email sent to the email address that you included in your Order. You may access current and past Order information by creating and signing into your account on www.violetgrey.com or by contacting Client Services at email@example.com. Your Order constitutes an offer to us to buy the Products and/or Services requested. All Orders are subject to acceptance by us. We are not obliged to accept your Order and may, at our discretion, decline to accept any Order. You do, however, acknowledge that by clicking on the "Place Order" button, you enter into an obligation to pay for the Product(s). Where we accept your Order, we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an email that confirms that the Product has been shipped (Confirmation). The contract between you and us in relation to any Orders (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Confirmation. After entering into the Contract, we will be under a legal duty to supply you with goods that are in conformity with the Contract.
The Contract will relate only to the Product(s) that we have confirmed will be shipped in the Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Product(s) which may have been part of your Order until the shipping of such Product(s) has been confirmed in a separate Confirmation.
If you have any questions regarding your Order, including regarding the possibility of cancelling or amending your Order, please consult the Violet Grey FAQ section on “Orders & Account” located here: https://wwwvioletgrey.com/en-us/legal/shipping-returns-faq.
Your Order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within 30 days after the date of the Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
Violet Grey ships to addresses in the fifty United States, excluding P.O. boxes. We do not yet ship internationally. You are welcome to use a freight-forwarding company; however, you do so at your own risk. We do not support international returns and you are responsible for all duties and custom fees. All Orders shipped to a freight-forwarding company are final sale and you will not be eligible for a refund or return. Your Order will be delivered to the U.S. delivery address you specify when placing your Order. Please also note that you must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the jurisdiction for which the Product(s) are destined. We will not be liable for any breach by you of any such laws.
Products comprised within the same Order cannot be delivered to different addresses.
Deliveries are made by our trusted courier and take place on Monday to Saturday, excluding bank and public holidays, usually within the hours of 8am and 5pm. It is not possible to specify a precise time at which a delivery will take place. Please note that the courier may require deliveries to be signed for.
Risk and ownership
The Product(s) ordered will be at your risk from the time of delivery. Ownership of the Product(s) ordered will also pass to you on delivery, provided full payment of all sums due in respect of the Product(s), including any delivery charges, has been received.
In certain circumstances our delivery partner may provide you with optional services when delivering your Order, such as: (a) signature release: opting out of the requirement to provide a signature on delivery; (b) leave with neighbour, reception or security: re-directing the delivery to a neighbour, reception or security; (c) reschedule a new delivery date: selecting a delivery date that best suits you; and/or (d) re-directing to a collection point: collecting your Order from a collection point nearby. By selecting any of these services, including through any default preferences you may have selected with our delivery partner separately, you acknowledge and agree that Violet Grey and Farfetch shall bear no responsibility or liability for any loss or damage that may result from delivering your Order in that way. If your delivery address is in the US, this includes where our delivery partner leaves your package outside because you were not available to receive the package at the location.
Price and payment
The price of Products is as quoted on the Site from time to time.
Prices include VAT (where applicable) but exclude delivery costs, which will be automatically added (at the cost shown) to the total amount due when you view the items in your shopping basket, and have selected your chosen different delivery method. The prices also include sales tax, which is calculated based upon the applicable law in the State or jurisdiction of your delivery address.
Prices and delivery costs are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect Orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Confirmation.
The Site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on the Site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our shipping procedures so that, where a Product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge you the lower amount. If a Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on the Site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping the Product, or reject your Order and notify you of such rejection.
Payment for all Orders must be made by credit or debit card on the checkout page. We accept payment by most major credit and debit cards.
You should be aware that online payment transactions are subject to validation checks by your card issuer and we are not responsible if your card issuer declines to authorise payment for any reason. We also conduct a standard pre-authorisation check on your payment card, and Products will not be shipped until this pre-authorisation check has been completed. Please note, it is possible that your card issuer may charge you an online handling fee or processing fee. We are not responsible for this.
From time to time we may run promotions where we issue discount codes. These can be used as partial or full payment of the price of Product(s) or Services(s) ordered online, subject to the terms and conditions under which they were issued (as indicated in our relevant promotion from which you got the code). Discount codes can only be used once, and only during the period of validity stated and only in respect of the relevant Product(s) or Service(s) stated. Discount codes cannot be redeemed for cash.
Violet Grey does not currently provide or accept gift cards. Violet Grey is not obligated to accept unauthorized gift cards provided or sold by third parties.
We accept returns received within 30 days of original purchase unless otherwise noted on the Product detail page.
Returned Products must conform to our returns policy below.
You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Products while they are in your possession, and you must return them in the same condition in which you receive them (except to the extent reasonably necessary to examine them). This includes the following guidelines:
- Products should be returned unworn (other than to try them on), unwashed, undamaged and unused with their original tags;
- if the Product comes with a security tag this should be left on;
- hosiery should only be returned if it is unopened and is in its original package; and
- lingerie and swimwear must only be tried on over your own lingerie garments.
If you fail to comply with the above obligations (including the conditions of return), we may deduct from the refund an amount to reflect the diminished value of the Product(s) up to the full price of the Product(s).
You cannot cancel a contract for the supply of any of the following Products:
- any Products that have been personalised or made to your own bespoke specifications unless such Products were damaged or faulty when delivered to you or have been incorrectly delivered (See Section 11 – Faulty or Damaged Products)
- any garments or cosmetics Products that have had a hygiene label or seal removed or broken.
We recommend that you return Products in their original packaging to ensure the necessary protection when in transit. If you wish to return a Product, please do the following:
- Sign in to “My Account” on the website and navigate to “Orders and Returns”. Find the Order containing the item(s) that you would like to return and click “Initiate Return.”
- Within the Order summary, select the item(s), reason for return, and number of packages to return. When presented with return options, select “Drop off”.
- Follow the external link to our courier’s drop-off locations near you. Search for your location and pick the most convenient drop-off location.
- Drop off the parcel at the selected drop-off location. Be sure to request a shipping receipt. When the package is received at our warehouse, your funds (the value of the item(s) purchased and any tax applied) will be returned to the original form of payment within 14 days.
If you need any assistance with a return, please contact Client Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Faulty or Damaged Products
If any Product you Order is damaged or faulty when delivered to you or has developed a fault, you may have one or more legal remedies available to you, depending on when you make us aware of the problem, in accordance with your legal rights. If you believe a Product was delivered damaged or faulty or has developed a fault, you should send a photo of the damaged item to email@example.com as soon as possible so that we may report the damage to our fulfilment provider, if necessary. Please include your name, delivery address, and order reference number. Nothing in this section affects your legal rights.
While we have taken reasonable steps to depict Products as accurately as possible through the photographs and other images featured on the Site, the detailing (such as colour, pattern, and texture) you see on-screen will depend on your monitor and, as such, may not exactly reflect the actual detailing of a Product when you receive it.

Governing Law, Jurisdiction, Class Action Waiver, and Arbitration Provision
These Terms and Conditions, as well as any Orders or other transactions contemplated by these Terms and Conditions, shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without regard to its conflict of laws or choice of laws principles.
Any dispute or claim between you and us (including the websites operated by us) relating in any way to these Terms and Conditions, as well as all other aspects of your transaction contemplated by these Terms and Conditions, including but not limited to your use of the services or websites or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, including the determination of the scope or applicability of these Terms and Conditions to arbitrate, shall be determined on an individual basis by arbitration in the County of New York in the State of New York before one arbitrator. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures unless the parties mutually agree otherwise.
Where permitted under applicable law, you and Violet Grey agree to arbitrate exclusively on an individual basis, and that these Terms and Conditions do not permit class arbitration or any claims brought as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, representative, group, or other consolidated arbitration proceeding. The arbitral tribunal or judge may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
Judgment on the award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. If either Violet Grey or you bring an action or proceeding by reason of any breach or alleged breach of the other party hereunder, the party prevailing in such action or proceeding shall be entitled to recover its reasonable expenses in connection therewith (including without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs), to the extent allowed under the law, from the other party. The term ‘prevailing party’ means the party obtaining substantially the relief sought, whether by compromise, settlement, or judgment.
The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to these Terms and Conditions. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages) and must follow the terms of these Terms and Conditions as a court would.
If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuses of intellectual property rights.
Limitation of liability and Promise to indemnify
IF YOU HAVE ANY BASIS FOR RECOVERING DAMAGES, INCLUDING THROUGH A BREACH OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOU AGREE THAT YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDY IS TO RECOVER, FROM VIOLET GREY OR ANY OF VIOLET GREY’S AFFILIATES, RESELLERS, DISTRIBUTORS, SERVICE PROVIDERS, OR VENDORS, DIRECT DAMAGES UP TO AN AMOUNT EQUAL TO THE AMOUNT PAID IN YOUR ORDER.
IN NO EVENT SHALL WE BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY OTHER DAMAGES OR LOSSES, INCLUDING DIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, BUSINESS LOSSES, LOST PROFITS, SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, OR PUNITIVE. ANY LIABILITY WE DO HAVE FOR LOSSES YOU SUFFER ARISING FROM ANY CONTRACT SHALL NOT EXCEED THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE RELEVANT PRODUCT(S) OR SERVICE(S). These Terms and Conditions should not be interpreted to limit any liability which cannot be limited by law.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Violet Grey and its directors, officers, employees, agents, assigns and Farfetch and its directors, officers, employees, agents, and assigns against any and all claims, damages, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs, arising from or related to your use of the Site or any material or content you post to the Site.
We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under any Contract that is caused by events outside our reasonable control.
To the maximum extent permitted by law, these limitations and exclusions apply to any claims or disputes related to these Terms and Conditions, any Products or Services purchased, and any Orders you have made.
You may not transfer or assign any or all of your rights or obligations under any Contract.
All notices given by you to us must be given in writing to the address set out at the end of these terms and conditions. We may give notice to you at either the email or postal address you provide to us when placing an Order.
If we fail to enforce any of our rights, that does not result in a waiver of that right.
If any provision of these terms and conditions is found to be unenforceable, all other provisions shall remain unaffected.
These terms and conditions may not be varied except with our express written consent.
