Goods on this Website
Not all of the goods we sell are available for sale through the Website. Additional goods are available in Ralph Lauren stores and corners all around the world. Please visit us on www.RalphLauren.co.uk in order to find the nearest points of sale.

We will, where possible give you the option to order a different good of the same type or alternatively, to cancel your order. Should you opt to cancel your order no charge will be made to your credit card and, in the event that your debit card has already been charged, a full refund will be made.
We have made every effort to display the colours and textiles of our goods that appear on the Website as accurately as possible; however, as computer monitors vary, we cannot guarantee that goods will be exactly as depicted on the Website.
The information on this Website does not constitute a binding offer to sell goods described on the Website or to make such goods available in your area.
RL Personalisation Shop Goods
For Personalised goods, you can submit a combination of letters and change the colour of the goods, the embroidery and of the pony. This option is only available for some products. While we honour most Personalised goods requests, we cannot honour all of them. Some may contain material that we consider inappropriate or simply do not want to place on our goods. If your request is, in our sole opinion, unacceptable, your order may be rejected or your purchase may be cancelled at a later stage - in which event, you will be notified by e-mail.
Whilst we have the right to decline your request to personalise our goods, 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 goods in accordance with your request shall not infringe the rights of any third party. You agree that you will have no (intellectual property) rights in your personalisation. To the extent any intellectual property rights exist in your personalisation these rights shall vest in us. To the extent such transfer is not valid, you grant to us an exclusive, perpetual, royalty free license to use your personalisation in the widest sense of the word, including but not limited to copy, edit, modify, publicly display, digitise, reproduce and distribute, and to sublicense (parts of) this right as we see fit.
Changes to Orders

If your chosen payment method is not denominated in pounds sterling, the final price of any goods you purchase will be calculated in accordance with the exchange rate on the date your payment provider processes your payment.
The price of goods ordered using the RL Personalisation Shop service will vary. The method of calculating the price of your goods and the final price will be confirmed to you before we ask you to confirm your order.

Please ensure that you enter any applicable Promotional Code on the Payment page or the Review Your Order page. If your Promotional Code qualifies, your deduction will be displayed in the payment summary. Only one Promotional Code per order will be accepted. Please note that we reserve the right to cancel orders in the event that an unauthorised Promotional Code is used. A Promotional Code cannot be applied retrospectively to orders that have already been placed or to goods that have already been delivered.
If an error is discovered in the price of your goods prior to our despatching them 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 to provide the goods to you at a lower price where we have made a pricing error.

Please be aware that the exact style, size and colour of the relevant good must be available for purchase at the time you request the refund in order to qualify for the price adjustment. Price adjustments are accepted on goods purchased at the full retail price only. Please note that promotional sales prices are not permanent price changes and are not included in this guarantee. Please Contact Us to request credit for a price adjustment or obtain further details.
Gift Packaging is available at no additional cost for most purchases made via the Website. When prompted at the checkout page, please let us know whether you would like to make your purchase a gift. Each gift will arrive elegantly presented in our signature navy box. We will include your personalised message, if you like, as well as a receipt (excluding pricing information), for easy exchange.

Full payment is required before an order can be dispatched to you. We accept the following methods of payment:
- American Express, Maestro UK, Visa Electron, Visa Debit, Visa Credit, MasterCard Debit Card, Mastercard Credit Card, PayPal©
- Ralph Lauren Gift cards and Online gift certificates, if applicable.
In the event that the sum due from you for your order cannot be debited or charged for whatever reason, your order will be cancelled.
By making an offer to purchase goods through our Website, you authorise us to perform credit and anti-fraud checks on you and the payment mechanism that you have provided. These checks may be required, amongst other things, to authenticate your identity, to validate your credit or debit card, to obtain an initial credit or debit card authorisation and/or to authorise individual purchases. You authorise us to disclose information provided by you, including personal information, to third parties such as banks and the providers of credit reports for the purposes of these checks, and acknowledge that such parties may keep a record of that information. You further agree and acknowledge that we may make the information we receive from such checks available to third parties including fraud prevention and credit reference agencies. We reserve the right to put in place additional payment security systems from time to time.
For your convenience, your credit or debit card information can be stored in Your Account. For more information, see our Privacy Notice. For added security, the billing address you provide must exactly match the address on file at your debit or credit card. The processing of your order may be delayed if these addresses are different.
We will prosecute to the fullest extent of the law any fraudulent activities relating to any attempt to reverse or seek a refund of a valid charge for an order that has been properly fulfilled and delivered to you and is not subject to a right of return.
Order Tracking and Delivery
Once your order has been confirmed, we endeavour to dispatch purchases within one (1) to two (2) working days of confirming your order (working days exclude Saturdays, Sundays and Public holidays), and to deliver your order in accordance with the timescales set out in our Delivery Policy. 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. Personalising a good requires additional processing time for your entire order, and all orders that include RL Personalisation Shop goods may take longer to deliver
Once your order is placed, we will send an e-mail confirming the details of your order and the selected delivery method. Your Order History on the Website lists the current status of pending orders. You may check your order status through the Order History area of My Account or the Track Your Orders option. You can also Contact Us. We will email you a confirmation once your order is ready for despatch.
We require a signature for all goods delivered using this Website. All responsibility and risk for the goods you have purchased through this Website passes to you on delivery. In the event that you have purchased a good as a gift for a third party you agree that signature by a person at the stated delivery address is proof of fulfilment of your order.
For security reasons, Ralph Lauren cannot ship any order to Post Office Boxes (including British Forces Post Office) or accept any order where it is impossible to identify the individual delivery address. Ralph Lauren's policies do not allow goods to be reshipped and therefore we cannot ship to an address associated with a "freight forwarding company". We do not deliver outside the United Kingdom. We do, however, have Ralph Lauren stores all over the world. Please use the Store Locator on the Website to find the store nearest you.
Cancelling your Order
You may cancel your order at any time before it is despatched by e-mailing us here or by calling the Customer Assistance at +44 (0) 203 450 7750.
