Statutory Warranty for Consumer
If you are a consumer (i.e. a natural person acting for purposes non related to its business, commercial, handicraft or professional activity possibly carried out), in the event of a lack of conformity of the purchased product(s), you shall be entitled - according to articles 128 and following sections of Italian Consumer Code (d.lgs. n. 206/2005) - to have the products brought into conformity free of charge by repair or replacement of the product(s) or, alternatively, to have an appropriate reduction made in the price or the contract cancelled.
A defect of conformity occurs when one of the following situations happens: (i) the product(s) is not suitable for the foreseen use; (ii) it does not comply with the description or does not have the qualities promised by the seller; (iii) it does not present the qualities and features that a similar product of the same type would normally have; (iv) it is not suitable for the particular use of the consumer if the seller has been previously informed of it by the consumer herself at the moment of the purchase.
In the event of a lack of conformity, you may request, at your sole discretion, the repair or replacement of the product(s), unless the requested remedy is objectively impossible or excessively expensive if compared to the other option, according to art. 130(4) of the Italian Consumer Code. In particular, a remedy may be considered excessively expensive if it imposes unreasonable expenses if compared to the other, taking into account: (i) the value that the good would have if it did not have the defect of conformity; (ii) the extent of the defect of conformity; (iii) the possibility that the alternative remedy can be performed without considerable inconvenience for the consumer.
The repairs and replacements will have to be completed within a reasonable time of your request, and without causing significant inconvenience to you, taking into account the nature of the product(s) and the purpose for which you have purchased the good.
Alternatively, you may request, at your sole discretion, to have a reduction made in the price or the contract canceled, in case one of the following situations happens: (i) the repair or replacement are impossible or excessively expensive; (ii) the product(s) has not been repaired or replaced within a reasonable time; (iii) the replacement or repair previously carried out have caused significant inconvenience to you. A minor defect of conformity, for which it was not possible, or it was excessively expensive, to perform the repair or replacement remedies, does not give entitlement to have the contract canceled.
The right to the statutory warranty will have to be exercised exclusively within a period of two (2) years from the product delivery, provided that the request for repair or replacement of the defective product(s) is sent within two (2) months from the discovery of such defect. To this end, we recommend you to keep purchase and delivery receipts of the product(s), which you will have to attach to the repair or replacement request. In the lack of delivery receipt of the product(s) or of any other documentation capable of proving the delivery of the product(s), the above two (2) years period will be calculated starting from the date of purchase of the product(s).
In order to exercise your rights, according to the above paragraphs, you will have to contact Customer Assistance or fill in the online assistance form.
An operator will answer you and try to immediately resolve your problem. In case that is not feasible, the operator will give you every necessary information on how to proceed in order to obtain the repair or replacement of the defective product(s) or, alternatively, an appropriate reduction made in the price or the contract canceled.
You will not be entitled to repair, replacement, price reduction or contract cancellation for product(s) or parts of products considered as defective if, unless otherwise established and in accordance to applicable law:
- the product(s) has been repaired or altered by subjects different from us or from any other authorized person; and/or - the defect of conformity of the product(s) occurred beyond the two (2) years period from the delivery of the product(s) and/or the repair or replacement request, performed in accordance with the above paragraphs, was sent after two (2) months from discovery of the defect; and/or - the defects have been caused (wholly or partly) by misuse, improper use or storage or maintenance or installation performed by subjects different from us or from any other authorized person - or failure to observe any instructions or other directions issued or made available by us in connection with the delivered product(s).
RL Custom Shop
Customisation is available for some but not all of our products. Where customisation is available you may request the addition of a combination of letters to be applied to the product as well as to change the colour of the product, the embroidery and the Ralph Lauren pony logo. While we accept most customisation requests, we cannot accept those that we consider inappropriate or detrimental to our product and/or brand. If we do reject a customisation request we will cancel your order and notify you by e-mail. If we cancel your order after your chosen payment method has been charged we will refund the payment to you.
Whilst we have the right to decline your request to customise our products, you acknowledge that you are solely responsible for any request you make. You warrant that you have the right to make your request and that customising our products in accordance with your request shall not infringe the rights of any third party.

If your chosen payment method is not denominated in euros, the final price of any products you purchase will be calculated in accordance with the exchange rate on the date your payment provider processes your payment.

A Promotional Code cannot be applied retrospectively to orders that have already been placed.
If an error is discovered in the price of any product you have ordered prior to our dispatching it to you, we will: (i) where the correct price is lower, refund you the difference or reduce the balance of the price payable to us; or, (ii) where the correct price is higher, contact you and offer you the option to either confirm your order at the correct price or cancel your order. We do not have an obligation to provide any product to you at a lower price where we have made a pricing error and we notify you of the error before we have dispatched your order.

If we make a permanent price reduction on any product you have purchased from the Website, you may request a refund of the price difference. Your request for a refund must be made within ten (10) days of delivery of the relevant product. Please be aware that the exact style, size and colour of the relevant product must be available for purchase at the time you request the refund in order to qualify for the price adjustment.

Stated delivery times are estimates only, and are measured from the date of dispatch. Each address you instruct us to deliver to, including gift-recipient addresses, is considered a separate order and is subject to applicable delivery charges.
