Privacy, Security, Terms & Conditions
Welcome to the VFCA e-Boutique. We absolutely love having you here, so thanks for stopping by.
We are here to provide our customers with an opportunity to shop the best pieces from some of the best designers, across a range of both brand new and pre-loved quality fashion and lifestyle items.
Whilst we love and appreciate quality made luxury items, we also support the idea of a functional wardrobe and lessening the impact of wastage on our planet and our pockets, through services such as Consignment and Luxury Goods Refurbishment (*coming soon).
Our mission is to provide you with exceptional customer service and the attention you deserve, as well as a sense of value throughout your experience with us.
If at any time you have questions or concerns, please get in contact directly email@example.com
Use of the VFCA website
By using the website (‘Site’) www.vfca.com.au you agree to be bound by these Terms & Conditions, which form a legally binding contract between you and VFCA.
ACKNOWELDGEMENT AND ACCEPTANCE
By using this website, you acknowledge that “we” and “us” mean VFCA (ABN). You also acknowledge that these ‘Terms and Conditions’ together with your order, constitute a binding contract between you and VFCA.
By accessing this website and / or placing an order whether through the Site or any other means, you indicate that you have had sufficient opportunity to read, understand, accept and comply with these Terms and Conditions.
Supply of Products and / or Services
VFCA accepts pre-loved luxury and designer fashion, handbags, shoes and accessory items on consignment. We then sell these items on behalf of a Consignee. At no point do we become the owner of a consigned item. Upon consignment, our Consignee supplies us with general description of each item. We make every effort to ensure the display and description of each item is as accurate as possible. We take great care in the provision of the information we display on our website. We quality check the products prior to listing them for sale, and again prior to delivery to ensure you receive your order correctly.
If you are under the age of 18, do not place an order with VFCA. Should VFCA suffer any damages or loss as a result of such a transaction entered into by a minor, VFCA reserves the right to seek compensation from the parent or guardian of the minor who entered into the binding contract with VFCA.
Authenticity of Pre-owned / Consigned Items
VFCA has a thorough process for authenticating pre-loved and pre-owned brands. We firmly stand against the counterfeit industry and report all individuals suspected of engaging in the illegal supply of counterfeit goods. In the extremely rare instance an item is ever found to be in-authentic, we offer a purchase-price money back guarantee. (To date, we can confirm this issue has not occurred).
By accessing this Site you acknowledge that the ‘Authentication Process’ is independent. The Brands themselves are not affiliated in anyway with VFCA or with the ‘pre-loved’ or ‘pre-owned’ items that are subsequently consigned and then listed for sale on this Site. However, VFCA fully cooperates with brands seeking to track down the source of counterfeit items, which includes revealing the contact information of consignors submitting counterfeit goods.
Nothing in these terms and conditions excludes, restricts or modifies any condition, warranty, right or liability implied in these terms and conditions or protected by law to the extent that such exclusion, restriction or modification would render these terms and conditions or any provision of these terms and conditions void, illegal or unenforceable. Subject to that:
a) VFCA, and its directors, officers, employees, consultants, agents, and affiliates, do not accept responsibility for any loss or damage, including but not limited to direct or indirect, incidental, special, consequential, or exemplary damages, however caused (including through negligence, or arising from a failure of our authentication process for consignment items), which you may directly or indirectly suffer in connection with your use of this website or any linked website, nor do we accept any responsibility for any such loss arising out of your use of or reliance on information contained on or accessed through this website;
b) any condition, warranty, right or liability which would otherwise be implied in these terms and conditions or protected by law is excluded; and
c) except in relation to liability for personal injury (including sickness and death), we do not accept liability to you in respect of any loss or damage (including indirect, special or consequential loss or damage) which may be suffered or incurred by you or which may arise directly or indirectly in respect of goods or services supplied pursuant to or in any way connected with this web site or in respect of any failure or omission on our part to comply with our obligations (including our authentication process) as set out in these terms and conditions.
You acknowledge that:
a) prior to entering into these terms and conditions you have read and understood these terms and conditions; and
b) at no time prior to entering into these terms and conditions have you relied on our skill or judgment where it would be unreasonable for you to do so.

b) liability for breach of a guarantee conferred by the Australian Consumer Law (under the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth)), other than those conferred by ss 51–53 of that Law, is limited:
i) in the case of goods, to any one of the following as determined by us:
