Any inquiries should be addressed to our Customer Care team. For further assistance, please go to our help section where you will find information on orders, shipping, exchanges/refunds and returning products purchased on theoutnet.com.
1. Our Business Policy
The Vendor offers products for sale on the Website and its e-commerce business services exclusively to adult users of the Website who are at least eighteen (18) years of age (the “Users” or “you”) for personal use and not for resale.
The Vendor reserves the right not to process orders for any or no reason, including without limitation orders that do not comply with the Vendor’s business policies, such as orders for which there are reports or suspicion of fraudulent or illegal activity. In such cases, the order will be considered null and void, and the Vendor will inform the User in writing that the order will not be filled.
These General Terms and Conditions of Sale regulate only the offer, transmission and acceptance of orders relating to products on the Website between the User(s) and the Vendor.
The General Terms and Conditions of Sale do not apply to the provision of services or the sale of products by third parties that are present on theoutnet.com via links, banners or other hypertext connections. Before placing orders and purchasing products and services from third parties, we recommend that you verify their terms and conditions. Under no circumstances shall the Vendor be deemed liable for the supply of third party services or for the execution of e-commerce transactions between users of theoutnet.com and third parties.
2. Placing of Orders
To place an order for one or more products on theoutnet.com, you must add items to your shopping bag, enter your billing/shipping address, select your delivery option and choose your payment method to complete your order.
Before proceeding to purchase, we ask that you carefully read the General Terms and Conditions of Sale and the Return Policy. You may wish to print a copy using the print option and keep it safe for your own personal use.
Before completing your purchase, on the order confirmation page, we will provide you with:
- a link to these General Terms and Conditions of Sale and the Return Policy;
- a summary of the main characteristics of each product ordered and an itemized list of each product’s unit price (including all applicable fees and taxes);
- the total amount to be paid and the applicable terms of payment;
- available payment methods
- shipping methods, name of carrier, mode of transportation, place of delivery and shipping and delivery costs (including any additional fees you may be charged if you choose expedited shipping or shipping different from standard shipping);
- any additional charges payable to a third party which amount cannot be determined by the Vendor (such as customs duties);
- the currency in which amounts are expressed;
- the estimated delivery date of the products; and
- our return policy (including any costs associated with the return of products).
When you proceed to purchase, you are obligated to pay the price indicated therein as set forth in Section 4.2. Before order completion, you will be asked to identify and correct any possible input errors.
The order shall be deemed completed when the Vendor receives your order in our database, the order information has been verified as correct and the Vendor accepts the order by sending an automatic acknowledgement of receipt containing the General Terms and Conditions of Sale, a summary of the Return Policy, and all the information contained in the summary of commercial and contractual conditions displayed before submitting the order. The Vendor shall not be bound to supply any products which may have been part of your order until the order of such products has been confirmed in the shipment confirmation email.
You may access your order under “View All Orders” within your account. The information contained in the order will be kept in our system only for the time required to process your order and as otherwise required by applicable law.
Orders are processed in the order they are received. The Vendor may not process orders that are incomplete or incorrect, or if the products are no longer available.
In this event, we shall inform you via email that the Vendor has not processed your purchase order, specifying the reasons thereof. If the products displayed on theoutnet.com are no longer available or for sale at the time your order is received, then the Vendor shall inform you of the unavailability of the ordered products within thirty (30) days from the day you place your order to the Vendor. The Vendor reserves the right to restrict multiple quantities of an item being shipped to any one customer or postal address; or you have not complied with these General Terms and Conditions of Sale. If so, the Vendor will notify you as soon as possible of such cancellation and require you to return the products if they have already been delivered to you.
The Vendor reserves the right not to process orders in the cases outlined in sub-section 1.2.
3. Products and Prices
The Website theoutnet.com exclusively sells luxury and high end products. These products are purchased by the Vendor from fashion houses, manufacturers and dealers, carefully selected for their stringent quality control.
The Vendor does not sell second-hand products, flawed products or products of lower quality than the corresponding market standards. The Vendor reserves the right to modify or discontinue any product offered for sale on the Website at any time without notice.
The main characteristics of the products are shown on each product page on theoutnet.com. The images and colors of the products offered for sale on theoutnet.com may not correspond exactly to the true garments due to the Internet browser or monitor used.
From time to time, prices are subject to change in response to currency exchange rate changes, markdowns and other commercial factors. Please check the final price before placing your order. All prices listed on the Website are in US Dollars. In the event of a recognizable error in the indication by the Vendor of the product price or calculation of the amount requested at payment, the Vendor will reject the order and contact the user to offer them the opportunity to purchase the product(s) at the correct price or to cancel the order. If we are unable to contact you, the order will be treated as cancelled.
Prices do not include sales taxes, which will be added at checkout. The amount of sales tax charged on your order will depend upon various factors, including type of item purchased, sales price and destination of the shipment and applicable law. Sales tax regulations may change between the time you place an order and the time of credit card charge authorization and this may affect the calculation of sales taxes. The amount appearing on your payment page of the shopping bag may differ from the sales taxes ultimately charged as indicated in the invoice you will receive with the shipping confirmation email.
The Vendor will not accept orders from countries not listed on the Website.
Payment of the price of the products, shipping and delivery costs must be made using one of the methods indicated on the payment page.
5. Gift cards
Gift Cards are no longer available to purchase. For assistance with redeeming existing gift cards, please contact Customer Care.
6. Store Credit
Store credit is no longer offered as a refund method but you can still shop and pay with any remaining store credit. To check your balance or place an order using existing store credit, contact Customer Care.
7. Promotional codes
Promotional codes allow you to take advantage of a discount on your purchase on theoutnet.com.
The promotional code box is displayed on the payment page at checkout: after you have added items to your Shopping Bag, enter your promo code and then press the “submit” button for the discount to be applied.
Promotional codes are non-transferable and there is no cash alternative. They cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotional code or offers unless otherwise stated.
If for any reason you wish to return an item to which you applied the promotional code, you should follow the standard return procedure, as described in the Return Policy. Once your return has been accepted, the respective code can be used again if it hasn’t expired. The difference in price between the promotional code and the item you purchased will be reimbursed, according to the time frame of the applicable refund procedure.
8. Clearance sales
Clearance sales are open to all registered customers.
Customers must be registered to participate in Clearance sales.
All items are sold on a first come, first served basis and must be purchased before the relevant clearance timer expires.
All sales are final.
9. Shipping and Delivery
Once your order is shipped, we will email you a shipping confirmation with a tracking number to enable you to track your package at all times. For information about product shipping and delivery procedures, please visit our help section. Please read it carefully, as the information provided therein is an integral part of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale and, therefore, you will be deemed to have read and accepted them when you place your order.
Delivery dates indicated at checkout or in the order confirmation email are estimates only and shall not be deemed final by the Vendor. The Vendor will not be liable for failure to ship or deliver the products as estimated, and you will not be entitled to any refunds or cancellation of orders as a result of delayed shipment.
The Vendor insures each purchase during the time it is in transit until it is delivered to your specified delivery address. We require a signature for any goods delivered, at which point responsibility for your purchased goods passes to you.
UPS can deliver to certain destinations without collecting a signature. If this option applies to you, simply update your preference at checkout before completing your purchase.
In choosing not to sign, you confirm that the Vendor can leave your package(s) at the shipping address provided by you without obtaining a signature for proof of delivery. You will therefore take full responsibility for any loss or damage that may occur once your order has been delivered.
On occasion, UPS may refuse to deliver your order if they consider the shipping address provided to be unsafe.
10. Customer Care
If you have any questions, please contact our Customer Care team before placing your order. For more information, please visit our help section.

CERTAIN STATE LAWS SIMILARLY DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES. IF THESE LAWS APPLY TO YOU, SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE DISCLAIMERS, EXCLUSIONS, OR LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU, AND YOU MIGHT HAVE ADDITIONAL RIGHTS.
