Finding and buying out of stock items
If an item is out of stock, you may ask us to locate the item on your behalf via the form provided on the relevant product page. We will let you know by email if we are able to locate the item for you. We will then send you a tailored checkout page where you will be able to place the order for the item(s) with the seller, via SilkSage. For orders placed via the tailored checkout page, the terms and conditions above relating to Buying on SilkSage via the Integrated Checkout will apply, as well as the relevant seller's terms and conditions. It is your responsibility to ensure that you review the relevant seller's terms and conditions before placing the order.
Buying Products Through SilkSage
SilkSage is an online intermediary which partners with sustainable brands to give you a wide array of fashion items to buy.
There are two ways to buy products through SilkSage :
1. Buying on a SilkSage Partner website
2. Buying on SilkSage via the Integrated Checkout
Payments made on SilkSage via our Integrated Checkout service will be processed either by:
(a) the SilkSage Partner directly using the details provided to them by SilkSage, or
(b) by Stripe, a third party payment process provider.
When using Stripe checkout on our Integrated Checkout service, you will need to provide your payment information and billing details to Stripe and Stripe will process payment. Your credit card details will not be passed on to the SilkSage Partners from whom you are purchasing the products but your billing information will be shared so that the transaction can be completed. In order to place an order on via our Integrated Checkout using Stripe Checkout you will need to accept Stripe’s terms and conditions. Please make sure that you carefully review Stripe’s full terms and conditions before completing a transaction on the Stripe Checkout. More information about Stripe can be viewed below in the Payments section and Stripe's full terms and conditions are available here.
Please note that SilkSage has no responsibility for the fulfilment of your order, regardless of how you purchase your items through SilkSage. You should contact SilkSage Service or the Partner from whom you have bought the item directly in respect of any queries you have on the delivery, refund, exchange or return of the items you purchase.
SilkSage Partner Websites
If you are making a payment on one of our SilkSage Partner websites, payment can be made by any card accepted by the SilkSage Partner that delivers the product. You will be asked to enter your shipping details, billing details and payment details in order to purchase the product from the SilkSage Partner.
Payments on SilkSage via our Integrated Checkout service
(a) Payments processed by SilkSage Partners
(b) Payments processed by Stripe
For payments made on SilkSage via Stripe checkout on our Integrated Checkout service, Stripe accepts a variety of payment options, a full list of which can be viewed in their terms and conditions here.
When you pay for products via Stripe checkout on our Integrated Checkout service, you will in fact, be purchasing a purchasing service (similar to a “token”) for the contents of your basket from Stripe. Stripe will carry out a variety of fraud and credit checks before taking a pre authorisation on your card. Stripe will then issue pre-paid virtual credit card(s) for the amount of the transaction (one virtual credit card per SilkSage Partner) and SilkSage will pass the details of the virtual credit card(s) plus all relevant customer personal information (to include billing and shipping information but not your payment details), to the relevant SilkSage Partner(s) (for details of how this information is kept secure, please see the Payment Security section of our site). Each SilkSage Partner will process the payment using Stripe’s virtual credit card and will be responsible for fulfilling the order and shipping it to you. At this stage, you will be entering into a contract for the supply of products with the SilkSage Partner. Your card will be charged only once the SilkSage Partner has confirmed your order. If for any reason your order cannot be fulfilled, the pre authorisation on your card will be released and no funds will be taken.
Your credit/debit card receipt will show the name “Stripe/SilkSage” as you will be buying a purchasing service from Stripe. If you buy from several SilkSage Partners in one transaction, your card statement will show separate entries for each SilkSage Partner involved in the transaction (each entry on your statement will show the names Stripe and SilkSage). For the avoidance of doubt, you will be directly contracting with the SilkSage Partner for the sale and supply of goods.
When placing an order on SilkSage via our Stripe Checkout you will need to accept Stripe’s terms and conditions. Please make sure that you carefully review Stripe’s full terms and conditions before completing a transaction on our Integrated Checkout service. Stripe’s full terms and conditions are available here.
(c) Storage of your information
If the first time you use our Integrated Checkout service is via Stripe checkout, SilkSage will not collect or store your payment card details. Payment card information will be provided directly to Stripe at checkout and will be subject to Stripe's terms and conditions.
SilkSage members may be offered the option for SilkSage to store their payment card details. You may change or delete any existing payment card details attached to your account by going to the "Purchase Settings" section of your account "Settings".
Stripe may require you, or give you the option, to store your billing and payment information at the checkout stage. Any storage of payment details by Stripe will be governed by Stripe’s terms and conditions which can be viewed here.
(d) Stripe payment processing
For certain transactions made via our Integrated Checkout, we also use a third party payment process provider called Stripe. When you place an order via our Integrated Checkout in respect of which Stripe processes payments, Stripe will use your credit card (or the Stripe virtual credit card) to process the transaction. For any transactions processed by Stripe, we will provide Stripe with the details of your card (or the Stripe virtual credit card) as well as your billing information. All billing and customer information transmitted by SilkSage will be fully encrypted and only used to process card transactions which you have initiated. For further details of how your information is kept secure, please see the Payment Security section.
(e) Payment methods
There are certain payment methods that you cannot use on the Services. SilkSage Partners/Stripe may not accept:
Cheques or postal orders
Cash in any currency
International wire transfers
Direct debits or standing orders
If you are paying for items on our Integrated Checkout using Stripe checkout, Stripe accepts a variety of payment methods, a full list of which can be viewed in their terms and conditions here.
(f) General information about online payments
However you pay for an item, you will need to follow instructions on the relevant checkout page. All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.
We take reasonable care to make our site secure. All billing and customer information transmitted by SilkSage will be fully encrypted and only used to process card transactions which you have initiated. Please note, however, that we are not responsible, and have no liability, for transactions which are made on Stripe checkout or on our SilkSage Partner websites.
Furthermore, we take reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but in the absence of negligence on our part we are not liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering through the Services.

SilkSage Promotions terms and conditions (“SilkSage Promotion Terms”)
From time to time, SilkSage may run promotions, including promotional discount codes, which apply to orders made on the Integrated Checkout on our site. These SilkSage Promotion Terms apply to all SilkSage promotions. Each SilkSage promotion will also have specific terms and conditions. The specific terms and conditions for current SilkSage promotions will be displayed in this section and/or in any communication you may receive informing you of the promotion (usually email). If there is a conflict between these SilkSage Promotion Terms and the specific promotion terms, the specific promotion terms will prevail.
By using a promotional code and/or taking part in a SilkSage promotion you will be deemed to have read and understood the applicable terms and agreed to be bound by them. The Terms displayed on the SilkSage sites shall apply to all SilkSage promotions.
SilkSage promotions only apply to purchases made on SilkSage’s Integrated Checkout on our site and are not valid on the websites of any of our Seller Partners. SilkSage promotions are an arrangement between you and SilkSage, and not between you and the Seller Partner. As such, any discount will not be reflected in communications you may receive from the Seller Partner regarding the order. SilkSage promotional codes have no cash value, cannot be transferred, forwarded or reassigned and cannot be redeemed for cash. SilkSage promotional codes cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer.
For promotional codes, you will need to enter the promotional code in the “SilkSage Code” box on the cart page and click “apply” to obtain the discount.
SilkSage reserves the right to suspend, change or cancel any promotion, at any time, at our discretion. SilkSage may update these SilkSage Promotion Terms from time to time and reserves the right to add to them as and where necessary. You should review these SilkSage Promotion Terms periodically for changes.
If you return items bought using a promotional offer, any refund you may be entitled to receive will not include the redemption value of that promotional offer. You will receive no more than the amount you paid towards the final basket price.
Seller Partner Promotions terms and conditions (“Seller Partner Promotion Terms”)
From time to time, SilkSage may permit customers using the SilkSage sites to take part in competitions and promotions offered by our seller partners (“Seller Promotions”). Seller Promotions will be subject to any specific terms and conditions set by the Seller Partner and usually available on the Seller Partner’s website. You should ensure that you read the specific promotion terms and conditions on the Seller Partner’s website. From time to time, SilkSage may identify that a Seller Promotion is ‘ending soon’ or is a 'limited time offer'. This means that the end date for the applicable Seller Promotion falls within the next six days. SilkSage receives such end date information from our Seller Partners and takes reasonable steps to ensure that this information is accurate and up to date. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you should ensure that you read the applicable Seller Promotion terms and conditions on the relevant Seller Partner’s website for full details and to confirm the end date. By using a promotional code and/or taking part in a Seller Partner’s promotion on the SilkSage sites you will be deemed to have read and understood the terms relating to the Seller Promotions and agree to be bound by them.
For orders placed via a Seller Partner’s website, we will provide a promotional code to be entered at the Seller Partner’s checkout. You must ensure that the promotional code is correctly inputted at checkout to apply any discount to your order. For orders placed on the Integrated Checkout on our site, where a promotion is indicated, SilkSage will automatically apply the discount at checkout.

THIS SECTION OF THE TERMS IS IMPORTANT AND YOU SHOULD READ IT CAREFULLY.
You are responsible, and assume liability, for all Content that you add, or link to, the Services. You agree not to hold us responsible for things other users say or do through the Services. If you have a dispute with another user, you release us (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) from any and all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known or unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.

We reserve the unconditional right to suspend, withdraw, terminate, amend or restrict access to some parts of the Services, or to the Services entirely, to you at any time immediately without notice for any reason, including (without limitation) in circumstances where;

On termination of these Terms (for whatever reason) all licences and rights granted to you in relation to the Services shall immediately come to an end.
Waiver And Severability

Governing Law And Jurisdiction
The English courts will have exclusive jurisdiction over any claim arising from, or related to, a visit to or your use of the Services. These Terms and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with them or their subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of The Netherlands.

Other than members of the group of companies of which SilkSage is the parent, no other person or company will be third party beneficiaries to the Terms.
You acknowledge that you have not, in agreeing to these Terms, relied on any representation, warranty or undertaking not expressly incorporated in them.
If any provision of these Terms is found by a proper authority to be unenforceable or invalid, such unenforceability or invalidity shall not render these Terms unenforceable or invalid as a whole and in such event, such provision shall be changed and interpreted so as to best accomplish the objectives of such unenforceable or invalid provision within the limits of applicable law or applicable court decisions.
If a dispute arises between you and us, we strongly encourage you to first contact us directly to seek a resolution at the address given below or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will consider reasonable requests to resolve the dispute through alternative dispute resolution procedures, such as mediation or arbitration, as alternatives to litigation.
Any failure by us to exercise any right or remedy under these Terms does not constitute a waiver of that right or remedy.
The Services licensed personally to you and you may not assign, license, sub-license or transfer any right or obligation of these Terms to any third party.
