Please print or save these Terms for future use as there is no warranty that they will remain accessible in future. 

This agreement is entered into in the English language, if a non-English language version of these Terms was posted or provided, you agree that the translation is provided for convenience only and that the English language version will govern. 

GENERAL

You buy the Merchandise in your local currency and at a price that normally includes any applicable sales taxes (such as Value Added Tax, Goods and Services Tax, Consumption Tax), plus international delivery costs and fees ("Delivery Costs") and any import duties, tariffs and similar fees that may be imposed by the delivery destination ("Import Charges").If you have elected not to pre-pay Import Charges, please be aware that the carrier or the broker of your choice may impose fees which cannot be calculated and/or estimated at the time of Checkout. From time to time, without advanced notice and in select destinations, Delivery Costs and/or Import Charges could be covered, partially or fully. The Website will provide details about such offers before completing and placing the Order

Orders placed via the Checkout are solely reserved for “Consumers”, only: (i) as defined by law and case law precedent, and (ii) individuals acting exclusively on their own behalf. Any Order which is obviously not a consumer retail sale and, more generally, any Order that is fraudulent or presumed as such, will not be accepted. Prior to placing an Order, you represent and warrant that the purchase of the Merchandise has no direct link to commercial activity of any kind and is strictly and solely for personal use.

The characteristics of the Merchandise you buy, as well as the price, Delivery Costs and Import Charges (if available for pre-payment), shall be those displayed to you on the Checkout. Please make sure you review your checkout page so that you can identify and correct any input errors. 

You are advised that there may be minor differences between the actual Merchandise and the way that it appears on the Website/Checkout, e.g., in relation to appearance / color / texture / finish. The labelling or packaging of the Merchandise may differ from the images of these which you see on the Website and may not be in your own language. 

Quantity limits may apply in relation to Orders of a certain Merchandise. Orders exceeding a certain number of authorized Merchandise could be refused at any moment in time, without prior notice.  

BROWSING, CHECKOUT AND ACCEPTANCE OF ORDERS

You place the Order for the Merchandise by using the Checkout ordering process. This involves selecting the Merchandise, placing it in the shopping cart/basket and transmitting the order by clicking on the “PAY AND PLACE ORDER” button (or similar button) on the Checkout. This process permits you to check and amend any errors before making an order by using the “back” button. 

To place an Order, you must be at least at the age which enables you to bind yourself to contracts per local legal requirements in the place where you reside. By placing an Order, you confirm that you meet this requirement. 

The information contained in these Terms and the data contained on the Website and Checkout do not constitute an offer to sell, but rather an invitation to contract. Once you have placed your Order, it will be acknowledged via an email which will contain the relevant details of your Order. Please note, this e-mail does not constitute an acceptance of your Order to buy the Merchandise – it only constitutes an acknowledgement of your Order. Your Order is not accepted (and therefore no commitment is made to provide you with the Merchandise), and no contract for the sale of such Merchandise shall come into effect, until your Order is specifically accepted and a confirmation email is sent ("Order Confirmation"). Order confirmation is subject to fraud checks and certain other mandated regulatory checks (such as ‘Denied Parties Screening’). 

If the payment method you selected at Checkout supports an authorization mechanism (e.g. most credit/debit cards), then when you place your Order the applicable amount will only be authorized. You will be charged only after the Merchandise has been dispatched to you, unless the Order is a ‘pre-order’ or a similar type of order, in which case the charge could be made even before the Merchandise has been dispatched, depending on the particulars of the pre-ordered Merchandise. If the payment method you selected does not support authorization mechanism, the charge will be immediate upon placing the Order (or such other timing set by that specific payment method you used, if applicable). Please note that you will be charged the full Order amount even if the Order is dispatched in parts. Where PayPal/PayPal Express is offered as a payment method, the full amount of your purchase may be taken immediately following the placement of your Order. Pre-Payment shall not affect your legal rights under these Terms (including for example any right of refund). If shipping, delivery or fulfilment obligations cannot be performed (subject to these Terms), you will be notified via email and a refund of the pre-payment will be made without delay.   

Appropriate efforts are made to process and fulfil any Order as quickly as possible. However, certain Order may be declined, notably abnormal orders, orders which are suspected to be placed not in good faith or orders which have not been placed by individuals. Your Order may also be declined or cancelled, upon notice to you, if: (a) the Merchandise is unavailable (in which case, if the payment was processed, you will be refunded in accordance with these Terms); or (b) the payment information you provided cannot be verified. 

if a suspicion arises that someone's identity, address, email address and/or payment information has been used fraudulently or in an unauthorized manner, you may be required to provide additional verifications and information before, and as a condition to, the acceptance of any Order.  

Moreover, an Order may be cancelled (in full or in part) even after the Order Confirmation was dispatched, if a suspicion arises that there could be, or actually were such circumstances (on our part or any third party’s part) giving rise to a good faith, genuine or honest error, mistake or misunderstanding pursuant to which we would neither have sent the Order Confirmation nor have agreed to sell the Merchandise. An example could be a specious low price for a Merchandise otherwise costing significantly more. In the event of such genuine error, you shall receive a properly detailed notice of cancellation, following which your Order will be automatically cancelled, and you will be refunded the amounts you actually paid.  

Nothing in these Terms affects consumers legal rights in relation to Merchandise that are not in conformity with the contract, whether because they are faulty, not as described or otherwise. 

 

FULFILMENT, HANDLING AND DELIVERY OF ORDERS

You acknowledge and agree that Adidas or one of its third-party fulfilment services providers acting on its behalf, including the retailer (each a "Fulfilment Provider") may handle the delivery and fulfilment of your Order, and that Adidas or third party has sole discretion as to the Fulfilment Provider it chooses to use. 

Not all Merchandise can be delivered anywhere (due to limitations imposed on the Merchandise or by the destination) but the Checkout will not permit you to submit your Order if the Merchandise cannot be delivered to your specified address. 

Delivery will be complete when the Merchandise will be delivered to the address which you specify when ordering (that may include the port of entrance to the destination as specified on the Checkout, in case you have selected not to pre-pay Import Charges). 

Different parts of your order may be delivered on different dates. Unless otherwise stated, and subject to applicable laws, delivery dates given on Checkout (or on the Websites) are estimates only. Your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the Order Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within 30 days after the date of the Order Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances (pre-order for example). Delivery timeframes are affected by your delivery address and the delivery method selected. Adidas or third party is unable to specify an exact delivery date and time. 

Adidas or third party has no liability for any losses arising from delay in delivery to the extent that this is due to circumstances beyond its reasonable control and where Global-e could not have taken reasonable steps to deal with the delay. For example, delays resulting from customs clearance procedures or other actions of relevant authorities are generally outside Global-e control, or delays resulting directly from your actions or omissions.

If you receive notification of an unsuccessful attempted delivery, it is your responsibility to use the details provided to contact the delivery company to arrange re-delivery. Efforts will be made to deliver your merchandise according to the details in the Order. 

PAYMENT METHODS

You may pay with the payment methods specified at Checkout. The availability of such payment methods is dependent on your geographical location. When being charged, the descriptor you will see shall include Global-e identified as ‘Global-e’ and will substantially look like this: **Global-e//Merchant**.  Payments in relation to the Merchandise could be made to an intra-group affiliate as our agent, and such payment will discharge you from your payment obligations in connection with the purchase of the Merchandise from us. 

You acknowledge and agree that: (i) you will be charged by Global-e or one of its third party payment processors ("Payment Processor"), through the payment method you have selected at Checkout for such Order and such other amounts payable under these Terms that may be due in connection with the Order; (ii) you will provide valid and current information about yourself; (iii) Global-e may use the tools, software or services of Payment Processors to process transactions on its behalf; and (iv) you may be charged bank or credit/debit card issuer with additional fees (such as foreign transaction fee or cross border fee) or surcharges imposed by your bank or credit/debit card issuer, and those are not Global-e charges or fees, and Global-e has no control over this nor does Global-e have any way to mitigate this, as this is purely up to the relationship and commercial terms between you and your bank or credit/debit card issuer, and Global-e also has no way of knowing in advance whether you will be charged such fees or surcharges, as each bank and credit/debit card issuer has its own policy, and Global-e commitment is to acquire the amount set at Checkout in your local currency. 

Depending on your geography, payment may be routed through one of our intra-group affiliated companies, acting as our agent. Payment will be made to such affiliate, which will constitute a payment to us, and will discharge you from your payment obligations in connection with the purchase of the Merchandise from us. 

Payment by Invoice with Klarna:In cooperation with Klarna and in certain jurisdictions only, you may be offered the opportunity to purchase the Merchandise using Klarna as a payment method. The terms and conditions which will apply to payment by Invoice with Klarna can be found here, noting that German (not English) is the governing and binding language of such terms and conditions. Eligibility for use of the Klarna invoicing payment method will be determined by Klarna in their sole discretion and Global-e accept no liability in respect of your use of Klarna as a payment method. Where you choose to purchase your Merchandise using payment by invoice with Klarna, you will be sharing your personal data with Klarna and the terms of  Klarna privacy policy shall apply to their use of your personal information. Global-e shall have no responsibility for their use of your personal data.

Global-e will process your payment for the Merchandise. Global-e will take reasonable care to keep the details of your Order and payment secure, but (in the absence of material negligence) Global-e cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorized access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the Website. 

RETURNS POLICY (ALL CUSTOMERS, EXCLUDING FAULTY AND PERSONALIZED MERCHANDISE)

This Returns Policy applies to all customers. This policy does not apply to faulty or personalized Merchandise and such other Merchandise listed below. This returns policy does not affect, the separate legal right of cancellation which is available only to EEA Consumers in some circumstances as explained below.

  • A return merchandise authorization ("RMA") number will then be provided to you (through the portal and in and sent via e-mail) with a return shipment label generated through the portal. 

  • Promptly thereafter you are required to follow instruction on return confirmation mail that is schedule collection with couriers & handover Merchandise. You must act without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which you communicate your cancellation of the contract. The RMA number must be included in the return package.  

  • The Merchandise must be returned in a new and unused state, in perfect condition, with all protective or other materials in place and tags and stickers attached to them (if applicable), as well as with the original box / container, including all accessories and documents.  

  • Returned Merchandise is subject to a strict quality control to ensure that the returned Merchandise satisfies these above-mentioned requirements. If the Merchandise does not meet such standards, it could be refused, and the Merchandise will be returned to you (at your own cost) or you will be liable for the Merchandise devaluation.  

  • Upon receipt of the returned Merchandise and confirmation that it has been returned in accordance with the applicable requirements, you will be reimbursed for the actual paid price of the returned Merchandise and such other fees, if applicable pursuant to these Terms.   

If you have paid Import Charges in connection with your Order (either pre-paid at Checkout or paid upon receipt of the Order directly to the applicable authority), you acknowledge that (a) you must seek reimbursement directly from the applicable authority in your destination, (b) it will be your sole responsibility to claim such Import Charges back from the applicable authority in your destination, and c) Adidas or third party cannot guarantee that such claim will be successful. If you have pre-paid Import Charges, upon your written request Adidas or third party may exert appropriate efforts to assist you in obtaining reimbursement of such Import Charges, and for such purpose you hereby give Global-e a power of attorney to act in your name to try and obtain such reimbursement (however this power of attorney is not a guarantee that such reimbursement will be successful). 

Any initial Delivery Costs paid by you in connection with the Order will be refunded. However, any delivery and clearance costs incurred by you when returning Merchandise may not be eligible for reimbursement or refund other than in the event of defective Merchandise, where you will be reimbursed for the delivery costs.

Title and risk to the returned Merchandise will not be taken back or assumed until it physically arrives back to the returns facility, and therefore you are advised to use a courier service offering a tracking number, and to take out adequate insurance to cover the cost of the goods in transit.
