TERMS & CONDITIONS
These terms and conditions (together with the information and policies contained in the "Customer Service" pages on the website and any other documents referred in these terms and conditions) ("Terms and Conditions") set out the legal terms that apply to your use of our website www.fivefive.kr (the "Website") and the other services that we provide (the "Services").
Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully and ensure that you understand them, before using the Services. Please note that by using the Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions. If you do not accept these Terms and Conditions, you will not be able to use the Services and you should leave the Website immediately. If you continue to use the Website or if you order products, we will take this as your acceptance of these Terms and Conditions. We reserve the right to change these Terms & Conditions from time to time by changing them on the Site, although no such change will affect any order you have already placed with us.
- About Us
We are FiveFive Pte Ltd and we manage the Website. We are a company registered in Singapore and our registered office is at Suntec City Mall, #01-494/495.
We render the Services to you through the Website. Further details of the Services we provide are set out in section 3 below. When you purchase products using the Website, you are purchasing them from the third party retailers ("Partner Boutique(s)") named on the Website. It is vital that you understand that the contract for the purchase of the products is between you and the relevant Partner Boutiques. We are authorised by the relevant Partner Boutiques to conclude the contract on their behalf but we are not a party to that contract and you are not purchasing the products from us. Further details about the products, the Partner Boutiques and the contract between you and the Partner Boutiques in relation to your purchase of the products are set out in sections 5, 6 and 7 below.
- Our Services
The Services we feature enable you to search through the Website and purchase products from a number of Partner Boutiques. As part of the Services, we also provide some additional services such as arranging delivery of the products and providing you with customer service assistance. However, as stated above, the contract for the purchase of the products is between you and the Partner Boutique. This means that it is the Partner Boutique (not us) who is legally responsible for selling the products to you.
- Our Liability
Should we fail to comply with these Terms and Conditions while we are providing the Services to you, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breach of these Terms and Conditions or our negligence. However, we are not accountable for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is ascertainable if it was an obvious consequence of our breach or if it was contemplated by both parties at the time you started using the Services.
Nothing in these Terms & Conditions shall limit or exclude our liability to you:
(a) for death or personal injury caused by our negligence
(b) for fraudulent misrepresentation
(c) any other liability which cannot be limited by law
- Product Information
We take necessary steps to ensure accuracy in the description of the products. However, as the descriptions are based on information provided to us by the Partner Boutiques, we cannot guarantee that any descriptions are totally accurate, reliable or free from error. The images of the products depicted on the Website are for illustrative purposes only. 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.
We do not allow Partner Boutiques to offer flawed products or products that are below par than the corresponding market standards for sale on the Website. If products you have ordered are not as described, defective or of a lower quality than the corresponding market standards, you can return them to us and we will liaise with the Partner Boutique on your behalf and you will receive a full refund of the price of the defective product, any applicable delivery charges and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the products (we will advise you whether the products will be collected from you or whether you need to arrange for them to be returned). Please see section 10 below for details of how to return products to us.
As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to products that are faulty or not as described. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office. Nothing in these Terms and Conditions will affect these legal rights.
The products sold by the Partner Boutiques 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. Neither we nor the Partner Boutiques have any liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
- Partner Boutiques
As explained above, the contract for the purchase of the products is between you and the relevant Partner Boutique. We are authorised by the relevant Partner Boutique to conclude the contract on its behalf but we are not a party to that contract and you are not purchasing the products from us.
We request that all Partner Boutiques using the Website have and maintain reasonable business policies that comply with our business policies. However, we cannot be accountable for the Partner Boutiques' business policies. If you are unsatisfied with the product or service you have received from a Partner Boutique, you should contact us and we will liaise with the relevant Partner Boutique on your behalf to try and resolve the issue.
- Orders and Payment
The steps you need to take to place an order are explained in the "How to Shop" section. By completing the checkout process and making an order, you are offering to purchase the products from the relevant Partner Boutiques (and not directly from us). Your order for the products is subject to these Terms and Conditions that are incorporated into the contract between you and the relevant Partner Boutique. All orders are subject to availability and confirmation of the order price.
To order products, you must be over 18 years of age and possess a valid credit or debit card (please see section (c) below for details of acceptable payment methods). By placing an order, you are promising that all details you provide are true and accurate, that you meet the age requirements, that you are an authorised user of the credit or debit card used to place your order and that there are sufficient funds in the account to cover the cost of your order.
The Website allows you to check your order and correct any errors before sending it. Do read thoroughly and check your order at each page of the order process as you are responsible for ensuring that the information you provide is accurate (eg: The correct selected products, quantities, size, colour).
(a) Formation of the contract between you and the Partner Boutique(s)
The identity of the Partner Boutique is shown on the product page of the relevant products, in your basket when the products are added and on the order confirmation page when you place an order.
When your order is placed, you will receive an acknowledgement email confirming receipt of your order. This email is only an acknowledgement for information purposes and it does not constitute acceptance of your order by the Partner Boutique. The contract between you and the Partner Boutique in relation to the products will not be formed until we have checked that the Partner Boutique accepts your order. If the Partner Boutique accepts your order, we will send you an email confirming this. The confirmation email sent by us on behalf of the Partner Boutique concludes the contract with you. The confirmation email will include a description of the products included in the order and certain other information about your rights to cancel the contract between you and the Partner Boutique (please see section 10 below for further information on your rights to cancel the contract). Only those products listed in the confirmation email are included in the contract between you and the Partner Boutique.
(b) Pricing and availability
Whilst we try and ensure that all details, descriptions and prices that appear on the Website are precise, as this information is provided to us by the Partner Boutiques, there may be cases where errors are inevitable. If we uncover a mistake in the price of any products that you have ordered, we will inform you of this as soon as possible and, acting on behalf of the Partner Boutique, give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you, your order will be treated as cancelled. If you cancel and you have already paid for the products, you will receive a full refund.
Delivery costs are not included in the prices and will be charged in addition. The delivery costs will vary depending on the products that you have ordered and your delivery address. Please see the "Shipping Information" section of our Order and Shipping page for further details of estimated delivery costs and shipping times. The delivery costs applicable to your order will be clearly displayed on the Website before you place your order (and are included in the "Total Cost" amount shown on the order summary page).
Depending on your delivery address, different taxation rules and additional charges may apply. If you are shipping items from a Partner Boutique outside of your territory, you may need to pay import duties upon receipt of the products. We will notify you during the checkout process if import duties are included or you may have to pay them upon receipt of the products. If they are not included, neither we nor the Partner Boutiques have any control over these charges and we cannot predict their amount. You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes that are not included. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order. Additional information is also available in the "Duties and Taxes" section of our Orders and Shipping page.
Please note that in the event you return an item, the import duties will be refunded if they were originally included in the purchase price. If they were not included then you will be responsible for reclaiming duty directly from your local customs office.
When you submit your order, we carry out a standard pre-authorisation check on your payment card on behalf of the relevant Partner Boutiques. Products will not be dispatched until this pre-authorisation check has been completed. Once we have verified your payment details and the Partner Boutique has accepted and approved your order for delivery, we will email you to inform you of this. In the unlikely event that we or the Partner Boutiques experience a problem when processing your order, we will email you explaining the problem and possibly requesting further information to try and resolve the problem.
We reserve the right not to submit your order to the Partner Boutiques, and the Partner Boutiques reserve the right not to accept your order if, for example, the product ordered is out of stock, has been withdrawn or is otherwise not available, or if we are unable to obtain authorisation for your payment or if you do not meet the eligibility criteria (e.g. you are under 18).
The estimated delivery date of the products will be stated in your order confirmation. We will try to ensure that your order is delivered by this date but there may be circumstances where delivery is delayed because of events beyond our reasonable control. Should such event occurs, we will try and arrange for your products to be delivered as soon as possible, but we will not be liable to you for any losses caused as a result of such delay.
Delivery times may vary depending on the availability of the products and your delivery address. Delivery times are estimates only and cannot be guaranteed. The products will be delivered to you directly by the Partner Boutiques so your order may be delivered in multiple deliveries. If no one is available at your address to take delivery, our delivery partner will leave you a note and you will need to contact them to rearrange delivery.
- International Delivery
If you order products for delivery to an international destination, your order may be subject to import duties and taxes which are applied when the delivery reaches that destination. Please see section 7(b) (above) for more information on these duties and taxes. In certain countries we may use an importer of record to facilitate customs clearance and delivery to customers.
You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the products are destined. We will not be liable or responsible if you break any such laws.
- Returns Policy
Depending on where you reside, if you are a consumer you have a legal right to cancel your order under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 ("DSRs"). This means that, during a certain period, if you change your mind or for any other reason you decide you do not want to keep the products, you can notify us of your decision to cancel and receive a refund from the relevant Partner Boutiques.

- Ethical Sourcing Policy
As a reputable and trusted business committed to offering its customers high quality products, we recognise our obligation to ensure that all Partner Boutiques and other suppliers are operating ethically. We expect all Partner Boutiques and other suppliers to consistently provide an environment that protects their employees' health and safety and basic human rights. All Partner Boutiques and other suppliers are expected to comply with their national employment laws and regulations with particular regard to: minimum age of employment, freely chosen employment, health and safety, freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining, no discrimination, no harsh or inhumane treatment, working hours, rates of pay and terms of employment.
We will never knowingly allow a Partner Boutique to offer its products on the Website if such products are sourced from countries which are in breach of these principles. We also look to the Partner Boutiques and other suppliers to instil these principles when dealing with their own supplier base. Because of the complex nature of the Partner Boutiques and other suppliers' supply chain, it is not always possible to monitor and control the conditions of each individual involved in the production of the products. However, as we continue to grow, we recognise the importance of being proactive and doing everything within our power to support the rights of those involved in the manufacture of the products.

Waiver - If you breach these Terms and Conditions and we take no action, or if we delay in taking action, that does not mean that we have waived our rights and we will still be entitled to use our rights and remedies.
