  4. Ownership in the goods shall be retained by Ciao Bella until payment for the goods has been received in full and in cleared funds, including all delivery charges.

Anti-Fraud

  1. If the name provided for your order and the name on the credit card supplied for the payment of that order do not match, we will have no other option but to put your order on hold until we are confident the order is legitimate. We reserve the right to cancel any order at any time if we are not in our sole discretion confident an order is legitimate. We would not retain value for any such transaction.
  2. We also require verbal contact with customers for all orders over $500, to ensure authenticity and that no fraudulent actions occur. Please therefore ensure you have listed your mobile or home number correctly.
  3. The full force of New Zealand and international anti-theft and anti-fraud law enforcement will be applied to any fraudulent activities made or attempted through our website, such as fraudulent orders or payments.

Shipping and Delivery

  1. Delivery is estimated to normally take 5-10 working days after the date of your order, excluding weekends or public holidays in New Zealand.
  2. Any delivery time provided by Ciao Bella or any associate is an estimate only. No claim shall be made by you on account of any late shipment or late delivery, however caused.
  3. All freight charges shall be at your cost unless otherwise agreed and stated.

  2. If any parcel containing goods ordered through Ciao Bella is damaged on delivery, the customer should contact support@ciaobella.net.nz within 48 hours of delivery. Failure to do so may affect your ability to claim a refund for damaged goods, as delay may deprive us a fair opportunity to assess the cause of any damage.
  3. Any defects during the warranty period should be notified to support@ciaobella.net.nz with supporting photographs of the defects.
  4. Please note the leather used in the goods may have differences in colour shade, due to the particular tanning process. This is not to be considered a defect, but rather a distinctive feature.
  5. Images and colours of the goods displayed on the Ciao Bella website may not fully correspond to actual colours, due to the kind of browser or computer monitor used.
  6. If any of these terms and conditions offend any applicable consumer legislation, these terms and conditions shall be deemed modified to the minimum extent required to remove the offence.

  2. We shall not be liable for any loss or damage (of any kind whatsoever and however caused) including any consequential loss whether suffered or incurred by you or another person, and whether in contract, tort, or otherwise and whether such loss or damage arises directly or indirectly from goods or services provided by Ciao Bella Limited or the Italian manufacturer. Should any liability of whatever kind be imposed on Ciao Bella by reason of this agreement (or goods supplied under this agreement) for any reason, our total liability to you shall at all times be limited strictly to the price of the goods supplied by us to which the liability relates.
