3. Products and Pricing

We take every care to ensure that product descriptions are accurate at the time of uploading products to the website. We reserve the right to withdraw any product from the website without any prior notification. We also reserve the right to amend prices of products without prior notification.

Our products are priced in Euro. When paying by credit card this is the amount, along with the required postage amount, which will be deducted from your debit or credit card. When purchasing products with sterling or other currencies, debit or credit cards, the exchange rates will be set by the cardholder’s bank. These rates fluctuate on an hourly & daily basis. For further information, cardholders should contact their bank as exchange rates are not applied by this website. All prices shown on our website are inclusive of VAT.

4. Ordering Goods

When an order is placed on our website, you will receive an email to acknowledge your order. It will confirm which products you have ordered, but it may not constitute an acceptance of your order. You will receive a second email from us acknowledging your order has been accepted and dispatched with a tracking number, where applicable.
Non-acceptance of your order, even after ordering, may be due to a number of reasons, ranging from, but not exclusive to: the product being out of stock, to our inability to obtain authorisation for your payment, system error, product pricing error, unsupported shipping area, fraud risk or description error, among others.

All products are subject to availability. Our display of products on our website is an invitation and not an offer to sell those goods to you.

Due to the handmade nature of our products the maximum order quantity is restricted to 6 items. This may be increased if you contact us directly at customerservice@donnta.com

Items may not be resold.

We reserve the right to refuse any order.

Important Note: Our billing system will only accept orders where the billing address and the shipping address are the same. This is to prevent instances of fraud.

If products that you order are out of stock, subject to a delay, or the price is higher than that shown on your order, we will try to contact you at the email address you provided when placing your order. If we cannot contact you or receive no response to our email, we will continue to process any remaining products on your order. We will not supply a replacement product without your authorisation. If you would like to cancel your order please see the returns section of our policy.
