adidas Terms & Conditions

These adidas Terms and Conditions consist of the following sections in this document: 1. Introduction; 2. The Purchase Terms; 3. Use of the Website and 4.  Miscellaneous, as well as the terms and conditions dealing with specific matters in any policy or document to which a link access is provided herein.

1. INTRODUCTION


www.adidas.ch (the "Website") is owned by and/or operated by or on behalf of adidas Sport GmbH, Verwaltung, Brunnmatt 20, 6330 Cham/ZG, Switzerland ("adidas/we/us").

 

If you place an order through this Website, upon confirmation that such order is accepted a contract of sale will be executed between you and us, which will be governed by these Terms and Conditions and specifically by the Purchase Terms mentioned below.

adidas AG is the parent company of the adidas Group, which includes several affiliated companies; among them, adidas Sport GmbH .

2. PURCHASE TERMS

Please read these Purchase Terms carefully before ordering Products online from the Website. Please, note that these Purchase Terms include the terms contained in those pages to which a link is provided within these Purchase Terms.

2.1 When do these Purchase Terms apply?

These Purchase Terms apply to all offers and contracts relating to the sale and delivery of Products by us.  In other words, you agree to these Purchase Terms when you order (i) anything from the Website or (ii) at any web page directly connected to the Website, or when you accept an offer from us. It is only possible to deviate from these Purchase Terms if we agree in writing.

2.2 Products

For the purposes of these Purchase Terms, “Products” means any of our products shown on the Website or any webpage directly related to the Website.


2.3 Requirements to conclude a contract with us

You have to be 16 years of age or older and have full discretion to buy Products via the Website.

You can only order on the Website if you are a consumer, not a reseller.

You guarantee that the information you provide to us in the request or order is accurate and complete. 

2.4 How is a contract concluded with you?

All information on the Website is an invitation to treat only. In other words, the information is not an offer or binding contract. You agree that your order is an offer to purchase the Products listed in your order.

We are entitled to verify an order in advance at all times and/or to refuse to accept an order without providing reasons and with no liability to you or any third parties. If we do not confirm acceptance of your order within ten working days, it is deemed to have been refused.

All orders submitted by you are subject to acceptance by us. We may choose not to accept your order at our own discretion.  Examples of when we may not accept your order are as follows:

  1. if Products are shown on the Website but are not or are no longer available;
  2. if we are unable to obtain authorisation of your payment;
  3. if shipping restrictions may apply to a Product; or
  4. if Products shown on the Website contain a manifest error such as being incorrectly priced or otherwise incorrectly described.

 After your order has been placed, we will send you an order acknowledgement email with your order number and details of the Products you have offered to purchase and details of any delivery services. Acceptance of your order and the formation of a contract of sale of the Standard Products between you and us will not take place unless and until you receive an e-mail from us which confirms the shipping of the Products from our warehouse.

Please note that in the case of limited edition or limited production Products extra restrictions such as a limit to the number of such Products per order may apply. These extra restrictions will be made known to you via the Website.

adidas has and fully reserves the right to refuse to accept any order that it knows or reasonably suspects was made with the assistance or involvement of any software, robot, crawler, spider or other automated means or device.


2.5 Retention of title

All Products will remain our property until you have paid all amounts owing to us in full under any agreement, including the payment of costs, earlier or later deliveries or partial deliveries. You may not sell, dispose of or encumber any Product before full title into the Product has passed to you.


2.6 Quality and maintenance of Products

Minor differences in colour and other variations in Products are possible as a result of different image acquisition, display technologies or other technical reasons. We are not liable for these variations and deviations.

We draws your attention to the washing and maintenance instructions printed on the labels of the Products. We are not liable for any damage resulting from incorrect handling of Products, including handling contrary to the instructions.


2.7 Order Cancellation

Because we start to process your order as soon as it is submitted, it is generally not possible to cancel your order. However, whilst we make no guarantee, it may be possible to cancel your order a short time after it is placed by following the instructions in the Ordering section of our Website


2.8 Price

The stated prices include VAT. Prices are quoted in Swiss Franc (CHF). We reserve the right to make price changes prior to an order placed by you.

We reserve the right to change, limit or terminate any special offers or discounts at any time.

We charge delivery costs. For further cost details, please see section 2.11 of these Purchase Terms or the Delivery section on our Website. These costs will, if applicable, be charged separately, itemised and added to with the total amount of the order.

2.9 Methods of payment

Please check the Website for information on available payment methods.

We reserve the right to conduct an individual credit check for each order in accordance with our Privacy Policy. Depending on the results of this check, we reserve the right to refuse certain methods of payment.


2.10 Invoicing

Where we elect, or are required by applicable law, to issue or make available an invoice, we reserve the right to issue or make available electronic invoices and you agree to such form of invoicing.


2.11 Delivery

We will deliver to the address indicated by you within Switzerland, excluding Samnau and Sampuoir. We can only deliver to a home or office address.  If a delivery attempt is unsuccessful, you agree that the carrier we have engaged for the delivery may also deliver the Products to a neighbouring address or a local parcel collection point (for example, a post office), after which we are deemed to have met our obligation to deliver the Products. The carrier will notify you of the delivery to such alternative address.

Shipment of orders will take place on business days, not being a public holiday in the area in which our warehouses are located. Therefore, please, take into account any public holidays including any national, provincial and/or local holidays in your country of residence and in the city of Rieste, Germany. Deliveries will be done on business days, not being a public holiday in your country or in the area in which our warehouse is located. Therefore, please, take into account any public holidays including any national, provincial and/or local holidays in your country of residence and in the city of Rieste Germany (our warehouse address).  Note that public holidays may vary per country and per year.

For detailed information about delivery periods, please check the specifications  in the ‘Delivery‘ section of our Website. Note that 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. We are entitled, insofar as reasonably possible, to make split deliveries so that you receive your Products as soon as possible. There are no additional costs associated with such split deliveries. However, in the event that you request that we deliver in parts, we may charge you for extra delivery costs. Each split order shall constitute a separate sales contract. If we are late delivering a part or one split order is faulty, that will not entitle you to cancel any other split order.

In the unlikely event that after entering into the sales contract, we can no longer deliver your Products and are not responsible for this situation, we will be entitled to terminate the sales contract. We will, of course, inform you as soon as reasonably practicable and reimburse any payments made.

2.12 Returns Policy

For practical information and the instructions for returning Products please see the Return section of the Website.

In the event that you have a right to withdraw from a contract of sale with us (and thus return your Product) in accordance with Sections 2.13 or 2.14, the following conditions apply.

Notification and Return of Products

To exercise your right of withdrawal you must inform us (adidas International Trading BV, skr. poczt. Nr 315, ul. Targowa 73, Warsaw, 03-700, Poland) submitting a clear declaration (e.g. a letter sent by post, a fax or an email) stating your decision to withdraw from the contract of sale. You can use the sample withdrawal form attached as Appendix 1 to these Terms and Conditions, however, this is not mandatory. You may also withdraw from the contract of sale electronically by filling in the explicit withdrawal declaration on our website at https://www.contactus.adidas.com/EMEA/ContactUs?country=CH&brand=adidas&language=fr. If you use this option, we shall confirm receipt of order withdrawal via email.

To meet the withdrawal period deadlines specified in Sections 2.13 and 2.14 you will need to notify us about the fact that you are exercising your right of withdrawal before the expiry of the relevant withdrawal period.

The Product must be returned (following the instructions on the Website) to:

adidas Sport GmbH

c/o MS Direct

Postfach

9029 St.Gallen

We shall bear the costs of returning the Products, save that returns not made in accordance with the instructions set forth above - including the instructions set out on the Website - shall be at your own risk and at your expense.

We shall notify you via email once we have received and processed the returned Product(s).

Exceptions to your right of withdrawal

You do not have a right of withdrawal, whether pursuant to Section 2.13 or Section 2.14, for contracts regarding the:

delivery of products that are made to your own specifications or which are clearly tailored to your personal needs; and/or

delivery of Products which are not suitable to be returned for health or hygiene reasons and where a seal was removed after delivery.

2.13 Right of Withdrawal

You have the right to withdraw from this contract within fourteen (14) days without giving any reason.

The withdrawal period shall be fourteen days from the date you, or a third party named by you, who is not the carrier, have/has taken possession of the Products, or, where your order contained multiple Products which will be delivered separately, delivery of the final Product(s) making up your order (“Withdrawal Period”).

You must send back or submit the Products immediately after, but in any event no later than fourteen (14) days from, the date on which you inform us about the withdrawal from the contract of sale. This deadline shall be deemed met if you send the Products before this deadline expires.

If you withdraw from a contract of sale during the Withdrawal Period in accordance with our Returns Policy (Section 2.12) and this Section 2.13, we shall reimburse all payments we received from you, including delivery charges (with the exception of any additional charges arising from the fact that you chose a different method of delivery to the cheapest standard delivery offered by us, where available), at the latest within fourteen (14) days from the date on which the notification of withdrawal of this contract has been received by us. For this repayment we shall use the same method of payment that you used making the original transaction, unless we arrange a different method with you; you will not be charged any fees for such repayments under any circumstances. We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the returned Products, or until you have submitted proof that you have returned the Products, whichever comes earlier.

You only have to pay for any diminished value of Products if this diminished value is due to improper handling on your behalf while ascertaining the nature, characteristics and functioning of the Products.

2.14 Voluntary Return Guarantee

In addition and without prejudice to your right of withdrawal pursuant to Section 2.13 (and any other applicable statutory rights), we grant you an additional Voluntary Return Guarantee. This allows you to withdraw from the contract of sale, without specifying any reasons, for an additional 86 days beyond the Withdrawal Period, so a total return period of 100 days (“Voluntary Return Period”), as a contractual right of withdrawal with respect to a Product ordered.

We offer this Voluntary Return Guarantee during the Voluntary Return Period subject to the provisions of our Returns Policy (Section 2.12) and the following conditions.

The Product(s) must have not been used or damaged beyond normal inspection use and must be returned in its original packaging. Returns of clothing items can only be accepted if the original label has not been removed (none of the aforementioned affect your legal statutory rights as described above, in particular your warranty rights and your right of withdrawal pursuant to Section 2.13).

We must be in receipt of the Product(s) you are returning prior to the end of the Voluntary Return Period.

We reserve the right to reject the return and shall not give any compensation under this Voluntary Return Guarantee for returned Products that do not comply with these conditions.

If you withdraw from a contract of sale during the Voluntary Return Period, in accordance with our Returns Policy (Section 2.12) and this Section 2.14, we will reimburse all payments we received from you, including delivery charges (provided the returned Product(s) represent(s) the complete order and with the exception of any additional charges arising from the fact that you chose a different method of delivery to the cheapest standard delivery offered by us, where available) within fourteen (14) days after our receipt of the Product(s). For this repayment we shall use the same method of payment that you used making the original transaction and you will not be charged any fees for such repayments under any circumstances.

2.15 Exchange policy

We do not exchange Products. If you wish to exchange a Product, you will need to return your purchase for refund and place a new order. It is only possible to get a refund on returns when the right to return arises in relation to the rights of withdrawal set forth in Sections 2.13 or 2.14 of these Purchase Terms.

 

2.16 Damaged or defective Products

For us, quality is paramount. We thoroughly test all our Products in real-life conditions to ensure they are fully capable of standing up to the uses for which they were designed. It is extremely rare for our Products to be damaged or defective. We have a legal obligation to make sure that our Products conform to the contract of sale.

Returned Products are inspected by our Quality Assurance Department and refunded if the damage is the result of a manufacturing defect or deviation from factory specifications. We undertake to fully refund the cost of any defective Products.

If the problem was caused by reasons other than materials quality or assembly process, the original product is returned to you. We do not refund Products:

  • obtained from a source other than the Website;
  • that are damaged by abuse or negligence (exposure to chemicals, caustic substances, open flame, high heat, sharp object, etc.); and/or
  • that are damaged by misuse or activities other than the intended purpose (use of running shoes for court sports or hiking footwear as work boots, etc.)

Please note the life expectancy of any Product depends on the individual using the Product, the conditions of use, and the characteristic wear patterns of the user. Products damaged by normal wear and tear or that have exceeded the reasonable lifespan of the Product are not replaced.

Our Customer Service team is available to assist you. Please don't hesitate to contact us with your questions and comments. You can contact us by phone or email, using the information provided here.
