Kildare Village Virtual/Personal Shopping Services
If you have been given access to this form by our Guest Services/Personal Shopping team, we are delighted to help you find your perfect outfit via our Virtual/Personal Shopping service. To register for the service, including Virtual Services (defined below), we need you to confirm acceptance of our terms and conditions of service by signing the enclosed form. You will only need to do this once, and you will be emailed a copy of this Agreement afterwards. We reserve the rights to change these terms and conditions and should any of the terms and conditions change in due course we will ensure we communicate these changes to you and will re-issue the documents.
All the brands at Kildare Village are entirely independent businesses to The Bicester Collection® and so in some cases, including Virtual Services, the Personal Shopper/Guest Services Team acts as your agent to buy products you have chosen from the Brands. The official way we will do this is by using your money to purchase a Kildare Village Gift Card on your behalf which we will then use to purchase the items from the brands for you. Your rights are therefore the same as if you had purchased the products yourself in the Village using a Gift Card, save as set out below.
When it comes to a purchase, once you have made your selection of items our Personal Shopping/Guest Services team will send you an email acknowledging the exact details of your order, providing you with a payment link and the value of your order and the total amount to be debited from your account.
Once you have completed and returned this form and finalised the process of the payment link our Personal Shoppers/Guest Services Team will go out to make the purchases and details of delivery will be shared with you in due course.
Should you want to return any of the items, this can be done directly by yourself with the brands as per the brands return and exchange policies, details of which will be set out on the purchase receipt. Clients should discuss return and exchange policy with their Personal Shopper prior to confirming a purchase. On delivery of the goods we will give you the Gift Card that was used to purchase the goods. At this time, we are unable to offer a direct refund into your bank account as refunds will be made to the original payment method, with the money returned to the Gift Card for you to use at Kildare Village in the future.

2.2. Each retail Brand in the Village is an independent company from us, so if you select any items to purchase, your purchase will be direct with the individual Brands involved. We may arrange for payment via a Gift Card you buy, but if we do that we are acting as your agent and the products will be purchased in your name with your money.
3. Description – Virtual Private Shopping and Virtual by Appointment

This may be via remote communication – telephone, videocall, email or instant messaging or other remote method or any combination of those.

3.3. We may “mix and match” the different approaches as appropriate for you.
4. Additional Services
4.1. Value Retail provides other services to Private Clients (“Additional Services”), each of which is subject to its own Terms and Conditions.

4.3. Additional Services may include Hands Free Shopping, Valet Parking or other services we choose to include from time to time.
5.1. You appoint us, via our Personal Shoppers/Guest Services, to be your non-exclusive agent with the Brands to:
5.1.1. enter into contracts to purchase products selected by you in your name with Brands in the Village or otherwise as directed; 5.1.2. use a Gift Card to purchase the products selected by you from the Brands(see paragraph 7); 5.1.3. act on your behalf to obtain returns, refunds and credit notes in relation to purchase we were involved with, where you request it and where available; 5.1.4. to enter into agreements with courier or transport companies to deliver your purchases and deal with returns; 5.1.5. in either case above, to use in the purchase or refund the gift cards purchased by you and you give us permission to hold, use in the Village and post to you such gift cards; and 5.1.6. for any purpose reasonably necessary to carry out your instructions in relation to or connection with the foregoing.
5.2. You authorise us to disclose that we are acting as an agent, and your identity to the Brands when we act as your agent as set out in this paragraph 5. Generally we will not need to identify you to the Brand, but will need to describe details about you, for example, physical sizing information or the intended purpose of an outfit. However, in relation to dispatch of Products, refunds, disputes, audit investigations or other specific situations it may be necessarily to disclose your name and address. If you wish to pay on your debit or credit card, it may be necessary for the Brand staff to speak to you directly.
5.3. The appointment in this paragraph continues until ended, as set out in paragraph 15.
5.4. We will act with reasonable skill and care, but otherwise give no warranty and have no obligation as to the quality of the services. 5.5. We will endeavour to respond to all requests and instructions within 24 hours.
5.6. We act for, and shall be entitled to act for, multiple Clients and on rare occasions it may be that their instructions conflict, for example where Brand Product stock is limited and more than one Client wants it. In those rare cases we will endeavour to act fairly between our clients but may make commercial decisions about which Client to prioritise.
6. Samples, Examples and Availability
6.1. In Personal Shopping we may offer to assemble a personal selection of Products for you to view or select from, depending on the interests or brief you have given us.
6.2. In Virtual Services we will endeavour to provide images and/or video footage of Products. These may be professional stock imagery or images taken by us of Products from the Brand – in some cases even live on a video call with you. The quality of these images may vary and if you have any concerns that the quality of the image affects your ability to select the correct product for you, you must tell us as soon as possible.
6.3. In many cases our Personal Shoppers/Guest Services Team will be able to borrow or reserve specific stock of Products from Brands and seek out Products in your preferred style and size. However, the nature of the Brands at The Bicester Collection means that stock of Products may be limited in some sizes or styles, and even where we have tried to reserve sizes for you Brands may sell the Product before we are able to carry out your instructions to purchase. Advertising product to you, or suggesting product to you is not a warranty or binding commitment to sell a specific Product or that we will be able to buy it on your behalf and availability can only be confirmed at point of purchase. Following purchase the Product sent will be materially the same as the Product image shown. We are under a legal duty to supply goods that are in conformity with the contract.
6.4. While social distancing or other public health measures remain in place to prevent or slow the spread of Covid-19, the Personal Shoppers/Guest Services Team may find it impossible or more difficult to borrow Products, attend Brand stores on your behalf in a timely fashion or at all or be subject to other restrictions. Where such restrictions are impeding the Personal Shopper/Guest Service team member will endeavour to let you know but we cannot be responsible for delays in issuing Products or entering Brands in compliance with such protective measures
7. Charges, Payments and Gift Cards
7.1. Our charges for the Service are available on our pricelist available from Guest Services Team. We may choose to waive some or all of the charges, but in any event, we do charge for (i) postage and packing of products sent outside the Village, (ii) Gift Cards (iii) other services provided, for example the Additional Services
7.2. In order to allow you to purchase Products, you need to purchase a Gift Card (as a single transaction) and you then instruct us to use that Gift Card on your behalf in each of the Brands from whom you are buying product. See the section on Refunds for some effects of this. Gift Cards are only available for up to specific amounts. See www.kildarevillage.com/giftcard
7.3. The Gift Card is provided by a regulated third party, EML Payment Europe Limited, and in purchasing a Gift Card, you are required to enter into a contract with them the terms of which are below, as the Annex to this document.
7.4. Gift Cards are only redeemable at the Village, are not reloadable and any balance expires after 60 months. Money held in Gift Cards is held by the card provider, not us. We will endeavour to only sell you a Gift Card which matches the size of the purchase you are making, however, if you subsequently obtain a refund and/or change your instructions to us, it is possible that a balance will remain on the Gift Card at the end of the process.
7.5. We do not charge for any of the phone lines or other forms of communication with us (i.e. they are normal geographical or mobile numbers in the Ireland so the costs of contacting these numbers is subject to your arrangements with your telecommunications providers.
8. Refunds and Returns of Brand Products
8.1. Personal Shopping, including Virtual Services, is not a mail-order or internet shopping experience. For Products from Brands, we are not selling you the Products at a distance – we are your agent allowing you to access the in-Village Brands and buying the Product locally as your agent (see paragraph 5).For Gift Cards and for our own Additional Services, we may be providing those goods and services as distance sales, in which case paragraph 9 below applies.
8.2. Because you are not buying the Products from us, but you have a contract direct with the Brand(s), your rights of return and refund are against the Brand(s), and not us.
8.3. Each Brand is a separate company with their own refund policies. We cannot guarantee that any particular Brand will accept Products back for refund in any particular case, although you have statutory rights as a consumer and these remain unaffected.
8.4. We can also provide you with information about the refund and return policies of the Brands at the time of sale, on request.
8.5. We will assist you to obtain a refund or exchange where we are reasonably able to do so, but you must contact us before sending any Products back for a potential exchange so that we know what Products to receive and can ask you not to return Products we believe will be outside the returns policies of Brands.
8.6. You should be aware that certain practices common in online transactions, such as ordering multiple products and sending back those that do not fit are not possible in Personal Shopping because you do not have the benefit of the distance selling laws governing the purchase.
8.7. Either we or the Brands may attach labels or other markers to Products to prevent them being used and:
8.7.1. decline, where legal to do so, returns or refunds on Products where the label or marker has been detached or the item is soiled by wear or use, partly used (e.g. cosmetics) or mixed or contaminated with other products or materials; and 8.7.2. if you remove the label, you waive any right to return Products under this agreement.
8.8. Purchases by Personal Shoppers/Guest Services Team members in Brands in the Village take place in Ireland and are subject to Irish VAT. Even if Products are sent outside the Ireland to other countries within the EEA , we will not be involved making a claim for VAT Free shopping on your behalf. In some cases you may have the ability to make such a claim, but the situation may be complex if Products are not finally dispatched or there is an attempt to return Products so please take independent advice.
8.9. Where you ask us to send products outside the Ireland (within the EEA only) paragraph 11.3 applies in relation to customs and overseas tax rules.
8.10. If you return Product to us and the Brand will not give a refund or credit note, then we will return the Products to you at your cost. If you decline to receive the Products back, or to pay for their return then after 30 days we may treat the Products as abandoned and sell or dispose of them as we wish.
9. Refunds or Returns of Value Retail Goods and Services
9.1. This clause 9 only applies to Goods and Services sold by Value Retail itself at a distance and not to Products once they are purchased from Brands. Examples of goods or services to which this applies are: Gift Cards, postage and packing and Additional Services. This paragraph does not apply to Products purchased from Brands, for the reasons given in paragraph 8.
9.2. You have a statutory right to cancel the purchase of goods or services made at a distance within 14 days of placing the order unless one of the restrictions applies as set out in this paragraph 9.
9.3. This right is waived in respect of Services where you have requested us to start them before the statutory time period is exhausted.
9.4. The exceptions referred to in paragraph 9.2, to the extent that they are relevant to our goods and services are that you cannot cancel: 9.4.1. Gift card purchases, once purchased (see paragraph 15.5 for more details);
9.4.2. services once they have been completed; 9.4.3. in relation to any personalised goods or services; 9.4.4. where goods cannot be returned for hygiene or safety reasons (for example, where worn, soiled or are intimate items of apparel); 9.4.5. perishable goods or services (e.g. flowers); or 9.4.6. a request to purchase products from a Brand, once we have made that purchase for you.
9.5. If you wish to cancel any order from us please contact your Personal Shopper/Guest Services via any method of communication you normally use, or via post to the Apartment (address in paragraph 1.4 (as opposed to a purchase of Products, for which see paragraph 8) within the period given in paragraph 9.2. In the rare event that there are goods to return, you must return them within 14 days. There is no requirement for a specific form of cancellation but if you want to use one please title your communication “Distance Selling Cancellation” and state that “I am cancelling [describe the scope of your cancellation] in my order made on [date] under my statutory rights to cancel a distance sale.”. We will email or write to you within 14 days to confirm.
9.6. If you have requested us to purchase something for you, you can withdraw from that purchase at any time up to the point we make the purchase on your behalf (provided that there is a reasonable period of time for the message to reach the personal shopper/guest services team member on the ground). Once the purchase is made, paragraph 8 (Return and Refund of Brand Products) applies.
9.7. Where a right of cancellation applies, we will provide the refund to your gift card within 14 days of the notice to cancel, or if goods are to be returned, the earlier of 14 days of the notice of dispatch of the goods by you to us, or 14 days of receipt of the goods. The refund will include a refund for our basic level of delivery that we provide and a deduction for an diminution in the value of the goods which exceeds that required to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.
10. Selection and Expertise
10.1. Our Professional Shoppers want your shopping experience to be pleasurable for you and to assist you to buy Products that are right for you. They will use reasonable efforts to achieve this but we cannot guarantee that you will be happy with every purchase. If you have any concerns, you can raise them with our Personal Shoppers/Guest Services Team.
10.2. Except to the extent that the applicable law limits or excludes the ability of a party to restrict its liability, we shall not be liable for any loss or damage, howsoeverarising and under any legal principle including contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise to you or a third party arising from or in connection with:
10.2.1. inappropriate advice; or 10.2.2. products being the wrong choice for the situation or purpose described to us.
10.3. Where there is a refund or return, there can be no guarantee that the Brand will have a suitable replacement product in stock. Where a direct replacement cannot be found the Brand will follow its processes and/or we may offer a refund or credit note in the form of a voucher.
11. Delivery and Return Logistics
11.1. When we send you the Products, we will include the receipts from the Brands, as this is your purchase and you will need them for any guarantees or for any refunds possible. If we are helping you with any return or refund you must include the original receipts with the Products when returning them to us.
11.2. We can arrange for delivery of Products to you once same are within the EEA, subject to limits. We may charge for this service and if we do so we will tell you at the time of purchase what the delivery cost will be.
11.3. If we agree to dispatch for delivery outside of Ireland you may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once the package reaches the specified destination. Any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you; we have no control over these charges. Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. Additionally, please note that when ordering from us, you are considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the products. Your privacy is important to us and we would like our international customers to be aware that cross-border deliveries are subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities. Deliveries outside Ireland may not always be available depending on the country, however, due to the complexity of handling customs and tax issues across borders, to the extent permitted by law we do not offer support with returns or refunds for Products sent outside of Ireland
11.4. Except and to the extent that the law requires that your have rights to return goods that we sold to you directly free of charge (see paragraph 9), any Products sent to us by you must be sent with all postage, excise, duties and charges fully pre-paid with, where relevant, an accurate and complete customs declaration. We may decline any package which requires any payment on delivery.
11.5. The risk in the Products is with us until they are recorded as delivered to you by the courier we provided and/or actually delivered to you. In this paragraph ‘you’ includes anyone you appoint as the recipient of the products. If you arrange your own courier or send someone to collect the products, risk passes when that courier or person collects the products.
11.6. If you send us Products (for example, for a requested return or exchange then) you must package them appropriately;
11.6.1. If you use the courier company we arrange and the address we give you, then the risk in the products in the package that were purchased from the Village passes to us when the courier company records it has collected the package unless the damage or loss is due to poor packaging; but 11.6.2. Otherwise the risk of loss or damage is with you until the Products are received in good condition by us. If we become aware of any damage to the Products we will tell you about it as soon as we reasonably can but failing to notice or report damage is not proof that it did not exist. 11.7. All dispatch of products by us to you are subject to charges which if not otherwise specified are 100% of what we are charged by our supplier for the postage and packaging. This applies regardless of the reason for the dispatch or return. You are responsible for all costs, including packaging, duties, tariff and fines of sending products to us.</p>
12. Data Protection and Consents
12.1. Personal Shopping is, by its nature, a highly personalised service. The more our personal shoppers know about you and your needs, interests and tastes and those of your family and friends for who you buy products, the better the service we are able to provide.
12.2. To provide the Service at all we must hold some personal data about you, but if you do not consent to a full scope of personal data processing, we cannot provide the full range of services.

12.7. For details about how we process your personal data, please refer to the Kildare Village Privacy Notice.
13. Regulatory Compliance
13.1. We are subject to some legal regulations in who we deal with. Also our suppliers, in particular suppliers related to financial services such as credit and debit card payment agents and Gift Card supplier are required, or require us to undertake certain identity and fraud checks. Where we do this, we may hold copies of such documents, provided that we use reasonable measures to keep them secure and we may provide them to the suppliers who need to make such checks or who conduct them on our behalf.

13.6. If you are listed on sanctions lists or as a “denied person” in relation to export control by Ireland, European Union or United States of America we may cease to provide any and all services at any time.
13.7. If we reasonably believe that any dispatch, purchase, return or other process has the object or effect of enabling, assisting or comprising any activity which, either in Ireland , or a country where you are based or where Products are dispatched to would be a criminal offence, or which obtains goods or services (whether from us, brands, the provider of Gift Cards or any other person) in circumstances where payment will not be made, or will be refunded, charged back or otherwise withdrawn, then despite any other provision of this agreement, we may decline to take any actions which we are concerned would contribute to that act or omission.

This Card is issued and managed by EML Payments Europe Limited (‘we/us/our’) for Value Retail PLC (‘Distributor’). We are a leading provider of gift card solutions. In these conditions ‘you’ are the Card purchaser or user.
1. By using the Card, you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions (“T&Cs”). If you purchased the card for someone else the purchaser must give the user a copy of these T&Cs or advise the ultimate cardholder that these T&Cs are available online. The Card remains our property. You should retain the original receipt or record of purchase of the Card and the Card number as it may be required to provide you with customer services or to assist with respect to errors or if your Card is lost or stolen.
- The Card is a prepaid gift card that is activated once purchased. It can only be used for purchasing goods and
services in participating stores in Kildare Village with which we have commercial agreements requiring acceptance of the Card (‘Merchants’), this list of Merchants is subject to change. The card cannot be used at ATMs or for online purchases or over the counter at financial institutions and does not allow cash out. The Card is not a credit card and is not linked to a deposit account.
- The minimum balance that may be loaded to your Card is €5.00 and the maximum balance is €1,000.00. In
certain situations we or Distributor may need to view your identity documentation before issuing a Card(s) to you in order to comply with our obligations to identify our customer. If you lose the Card and are permitted to receive a replacement Card, there may be a fee incurred and in such case the replacement Card fee will be advised at the time you request it.
- If you wish to use the Card to make a purchase that exceed the available balance, this may be possible but at
the Merchant’s sole discretion. In such case please check with the Merchant prior to any proposed purchase and, if the Merchant consents, you will need to pay the difference by another method as agreed with the Merchant.
- Subject to applicable law, on Cards purchased on or after 2nd November 2020 a maintenance fee in the
amount of €2.50 per month will be deducted from your Card balance starting on the day after the 12 month anniversary of when the Card was purchased. If you purchased your Card on or after 2nd December 2019, your Card is valid for 60 months from the date of purchase. If your Card has reached its plastic expiry within this timeframe and can therefore no longer be used for purchases, you can obtain a new card ("New Card”) loaded with any remaining funds from the Customer Service Desk within the Shopping Centre. This New Card is not reloadable. Your New Card will expire on the day after the 60 month anniversary of when the Card was purchased at which time the remaining available balance will be forfeited and we will not give you any notice before this happens.
- The Card cannot be used to obtain or redeem cash and cannot be used for making direct debit, recurring, or
regular instalment payments or for purchasing foreign currency. Authorisations may be declined at some Merchants. We are not liable in any way when an authorisation is declined for any particular transaction except where the authorisation has been declined because of an act or omission on our part.
- The Card is like cash and may not be replaced if misused, lost, stolen or damaged and no financial
compensation scheme exists with respect to the Card. You are responsible for all transactions on the Card, except where there has been fraud or negligence by our staff or agents. If you notice any error relating to the Card or you lose your card then you should notify Gift Card Support immediately on 01 5133656.
- If you have a problem with a purchase made with the Card, or a dispute with a Merchant, you must deal
directly with the Merchant involved.
- We may restrict or stop the use of the Card if suspicious activities are noticed or we do not receive funds
from you in the full amount of the activated balance of the Card.
- Any refunds on Card transactions are subject to the policy of the specific Merchant. If the Card expires or is
revoked before you have spent any funds resulting from a refund (whether or not the original transaction being refunded was made using the Card) then you will have no access to those funds.
- You are responsible for checking your transaction history online and knowing your available balance. You
can view your balance and transaction history at www.getmybalance.com (free of charge) or obtain the balance by calling the dedicated balance enquiry line on 1890 943045 or Gift Card Support on 01 5133656.
