When do these Delivery Terms apply?
These Delivery Terms apply to all offers and agreements relating to the sale and delivery of products by adidas. When you order anything at our adidas website (www.adidas.co.uk) or any web page directly connected to our website (Website) or accept an offer from adidas, your agreement to the Delivery Terms in the course of the order process constitutes your acceptance of the applicability of these Delivery Terms. It is only possible to deviate from these Delivery Terms if agreed in writing by adidas.
Our offer and prices
The offers on our Website are without obligation and do not bind adidas. adidas is likewise not bound by manifest clerical errors and mistakes in promotional descriptions and other statements in the offer and on our Website. Minor colour and other variations in products are possible as a result of different image acquisition, display technologies or other technical reasons. adidas is not liable for these variations and deviations.
The stated prices include VAT. Prices are quoted in Great Britain Pound (GBP). adidas reserves the right to make price and product changes prior to an order placed by you. adidas reserves the right to change, limit or terminate any special offers or discounts at any time.
adidas charges shipping costs. The shipping costs vary for each product and are further detailed under the heading ‘Shipping’ on our Website. These costs will, if applicable, be charged separately and specified and added up with the total amount of the order.
If the order is processed via an Internet terminal in an adidas Retail Store, adidas will pay any shipping costs, any customs duties and clearance charges.
How is a contract concluded with you?
You can only order on our Website if you are a consumer, not a reseller. You have to be 16 years of age or older to buy products via our Website.
Orders you place via the Website for the products offered by adidas through the Website are only an offer to conclude a sales contract. The sales contract is only concluded upon the confirmation by adidas of the order per e-mail to you. Until you have received this confirmation, you can still cancel the order.
You warrant that the information you provide to adidas in the request or order is accurate and complete. adidas is never obliged to accept an order. adidas is entitled at all times to verify an order in advance or to refuse an order without providing reasons. If adidas does not confirm your order within ten working days, it is deemed to have been refused.
Special aspects of personalised products
In order to personalise your products (including mi adidas products) you can submit any combination of letters, numbers, symbols and spaces to form a name, word or phrase. You are kindly requested not to use, upload, submit, copy or otherwise make public any names, words or phrases which fall into any of the categories below:
1. Include the name of a product, service, company, organisation and/or event which belongs to someone else;
2. Include the name or nickname of a famous person (living or dead);
3. If used on your customised products will infringe or may infringe third party trade marks or other intellectual property rights;
4. Are threatening, incite violence, defamatory, obscene, discriminatory, inflammatory, sexually explicit or otherwise unlawful.
Please understand that adidas reserves the right to reject any names, words or phrases (or combinations thereof) which fall into any of the above categories or which are otherwise unacceptable to adidas and this will result in your order being cancelled. Further, adidas will be entitled to claim compensation equal to the value of the goods ordered.
Please be aware that by placing your order for your customised product (including mi adidas products), you:
a. Represent and warrant that any names, words or phrases you use, upload, submit, copy or otherwise make public for use on your mi adidas product do not fall into any of the above categories;
b. Agree to indemnify adidas and its affiliated companies and keep adidas and its affiliated companies indemnified against all costs, expenses, damages, losses and liabilities incurred or suffered by adidas or its affiliated companies as a result of the use of any names, words or phrases used, uploaded, submitted, copied or otherwise made public by you (including use on your product);
c. you grant to adidas and its affiliated companies a non-exclusive, irrevocable royalty-free, worldwide, fully sub-licensable right to use, reproduce, disclose and modify the names, words or phrases submitted by you for the purposes of fulfilling your order.
All purchases of mi adidas (Team) products are subject to the terms and conditions set forth between the selected dealer/ retailer, and you. However, in return for providing you with the service to personalize your mi adidas (Team) products, you warrant us that the above statements are true.
Insofar as the order involves products manufactured or adapted according to customer specifications, you will not have any cooling-off period, right of revocation, right of return or right of termination (Section 46d, paragraph 4, Book 7 of the Dutch Civil Code).
adidas will deliver to the address indicated by you within the UK (mainland). adidas can only deliver to a delivery address which is a home or office address. Deliveries will be done on business days, not being a public holiday. For each delivery a signature for receipt is required.
adidas is entitled, insofar as reasonably possible, to make split deliveries so that you receive the ordered products as soon as possible. There are no additional costs associated with such split deliveries. However, in the event that you request that adidas deliver the order in parts, adidas may charge you for extra delivery costs. Each split order shall constitute a separate sales contract. If adidas is late delivering a part or one split order is faulty, that will not entitle you to cancel any other split order. Customised mi adidas products will be delivered separate from any other products you may have ordered.
Please check details for standard and deliveries and the delivery of personalised products under the heading ‘Shipping‘ on our Website. Delivery periods are indicative and are therefore not regarded as strict deadlines. The mere fact that a delivery period is exceeded does not entitle you to compensation. adidas must first be served with a notice of default.
Options in case of delivery problems
If adidas discovers prior to entering into the sales contract that it can no longer deliver the ordered products, adidas may offer you an equivalent product in terms of quality, price and function. You are not obliged to accept the replacement product. You may return it, if you so wish, within 30 days at adidas’ expense (your right of revocation or return obviously remains unaffected).
If adidas discovers after entering into the sales contract that adidas can no longer deliver the ordered products and is not responsible for this situation, adidas will be entitled to terminate the sales contract. adidas will, of course, inform you immediately and reimburse any payments made.
Methods of payment
Information on returns
Right of return: Subject to the provisions of these Delivery Terms, you may return the products received without specifying any reasons within 30 days of receipt. The 30-day period commences on the day of receipt of the order. Only products that are not suitable for dispatch by parcel (e.g. in the case of bulky goods) may be returned by submitting a written request for the products to be taken back. The timely dispatch of the products or the request to take back the products will suffice for compliance with the right of return deadline. The return of products is at adidas’ expense and risk. The products, unused and complete, including their original packaging insofar as reasonably possible, must be returned to:
adidas International Trading B.V.
Budberger Straße 2
46446 Emmerich am Rhein, Germany
In the event of a valid return in accordance with these Delivery Terms, adidas will reimburse the purchase price received from you within fourteen days of receipt of the product or revocation of the sales contract. If a product is returned that adidas believes has been damaged because of an act or omission for which you are to blame, or which is otherwise for your expense and risk, adidas will be entitled to deduct the decrease in value of the product as a result of this damage from the amount to be repaid to you. You can avoid the obligation to compensate the decrease in value of a product caused by use by not using the product and by refraining (as far as reasonably possible) from any actions that could negatively affect its value.
What can you do if you are not satisfied?
You may send written complaints concerning the conclusion of the sales contract or its performance to the following address:
adidas Customer Service
6200 AB Maastricht, the Netherlands
If you wish to make a verbal complaint concerning the conclusion of the sales contract or its performance, you may use the toll-free number 0800 – 279 41 44 (0800 3STRIPES).
Retention of title
The delivered products will remain the property of adidas until you have paid all amounts owing under any agreement to us in full, including the payment of costs, even of earlier or later deliveries or partial deliveries. You may not sell, dispose of or encumber products before ownership thereof has passed to you.
Dutch law applies to the sales contract, to the exclusion of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG).
Maintenance of products
adidas draws your attention to the washing and maintenance instructions printed on the labels of the products. adidas is not liable for any damage resulting from the incorrect handling of products, including handling contrary to the instructions.
Information about batteries
Some of the products sold by adidas contain batteries.
Batteries and rechargeable batteries that contain hazardous substances are clearly identified by the symbol of a crossed-out dustbin. The chemical designations of the corresponding hazardous substances may be indicated under the symbol of the crossed-out dustbin. Examples include (Pb) lead, (Cd) cadmium and (Hg) mercury.
Old batteries and rechargeable batteries may not be disposed of with normal household waste. These can be handed over free of charge to a community point of collection or a shop. You may also return purchased batteries and rechargeable batteries (without devices) to us after use. Please ensure that you have paid adequate postage.
