Every user visiting the Site ("User") is invited to view the Contract before completing an order for purchase of Products on the Site ("Order"). The purchase of Products on this Site implies the acceptance of these Terms and Conditions of Sale, therefore, every User is invited to review these Terms and Conditions of Sale carefully and make sure that he or she understands them before placing an Order.
These Terms and Conditions of Sale exclusively regulate the offer, transmission and acceptance of Orders relating to Products on this Site between the Users and the Seller.
Any modification or amendment to these Terms and Conditions of Sale will immediately become effective after being published on this Site and will regulate all the subsequent sales of Products.
The purchase of Products on this Site is allowed only to customers ("Customers") – which means any individuals who are acting for purposes which are outside their trade, business or profession, and are eligible to execute and perform binding agreements according to the applicable law or under parental (or guardian) consent, when needed.
When submitting an Order, Customers must provide all the personal information required by this Site, including but not limited to their own first name, surname, email address, billing and delivery address. All such information must be true, accurate and up to date.
Users cannot make any purchase under someone else’s identity unless strictly authorized to do so by the identity holder.
The Seller reserves the right not to process orders received from users who are not "Consumers".
Products sold on this Site are not meant for resale.
2. Acceptance of an order - Contract of sale.
The acceptance of the Order on the part of the Seller takes place when the latter sends a purchase confirmation to the Customer by email ("Confirmation Email or Order Confirmation"). Only the Products listed in the Confirmation Email are included in the Contract. The relevant Contract shall be considered formed at the time of receipt of the Confirmation Email on the part of the Customer. Before that time, the Seller reserves the right to refuse acceptance of an Order for any reason at its sole discretion. Such reasons include, but are not limited to, one of the following:
- The Product ordered is out of stock or is withdrawn due to the shipping restrictions applicable to one or all of the ordered items.
- The Seller identifies a pricing or product description error.
- The Seller is unable to obtain authorisation for payment.
- The Customer does not meet the eligibility criteria to purchase as set out in these Terms and Conditions of Sale.
If the Customer makes a mistake with the Order he or she may be able to amend it by email prior to the dispatch of the Confirmation Email. If the Confirmation Email has already been dispatched the Customer will be unable to amend the Order save with the prior written consent of the Seller, without prejudice to the Return Policy (please see article 7 below).
English is the language used for executing Contracts with the Seller.
Orders may be made using the following methods of payment:
(collectively, the "Payment methods").
The Seller will proceed to charge the price of the purchase, as defined below ("Price"), at the same time as the acceptance of the Order. However, prior to the acceptance of the Order, security checks may be carried out regarding the Payment method chosen by the Customer for the Order, or a pre-authorisation or a pre-charge for the sake of caution.
The Seller uses a primary gateway for the authorisation of payments for Orders ("Payment gateway"); as a result, the Seller will not directly manage any financial information relating to the Payment method used by the Customer, nor will the Site process any financial information provided for the completion of the Order.
The Payment Gateway protects the details of the credit or debit card used, encrypting sensitive information in order to ensure that they are transmitted securely. In the unlikely event of error, negligence or any wrongdoing in relation to the management of the transaction linked to an Order by the Payment Gateway and/or the intermediary systems for payment, neither the Seller nor the Site will be responsible for such error, negligence or wrongdoing.
The Seller reserves the right to cancel a transaction and the relevant Order if it appears that fraudulent use is being made of the Payment method adopted for the Order. Moreover, the Seller and the Site will not be responsible in the event that illegal use is made of a Payment method by third parties which is not connected to any error or negligence by the Site or the Seller.
4. Shipping and deliveries
The Seller despatches and delivers the Orders using major couriers.
In compliance with the applicable laws currently into force, the term within which the Seller is required to deliver the Products purchased is within a maximum of 30 (thirty) days of the date of execution of the Contract (without prejudice to any different term if provided for by any local mandatory law), except where an event occurs which is beyond the reasonable control of the affected party and which is not attributable to any wilful act, neglect or failure to take reasonable preventative action by the affected party and includes (without limitation) a strike or any other industrial or labour dispute, fire, flood, storm, epidemics, pandemics, earthquake or other adverse weather conditions, governmental restrictions, occurrences related to customs procedures ("Force Majeure Event").
To this extent, the Seller shall be exempt from responsibility for delays due to Force Majeure Event.
Customers are encouraged to do everything in their power to facilitate the delivery of the Order, making themselves available for receipt or delegating to a third party.
The Customer shall bear the risk of loss or damage to the Products from the moment in which he/she, or a third party appointed by the Customer and other than the carrier, physically takes possession of such Products.
All the prices published on the Site are inclusive of VAT ("Price"). The Prices will be shown in Euro (EUR) or other currencies as may be determined by the Seller.
In addition to the Price, the Customer shall pay the delivery cost.
Prices are subject to change at the Seller’s discretion. Any amendments made to the Prices will have effect from the date of their publication on the Site, with no retroactive effect on Orders that have already been accepted via a Confirmation Email.
Except in the event of a recognisable error in accordance with article 1431 of the Italian civil code, the Seller reserves the right to refuse acceptance of an Order for reason of error in the Price published on the Site or indicated in the email sent to confirm the receipt of the Order, that is, before the acceptance of the same Order by the Seller.
6. Defective and non-conforming Products – Warranty

The Seller warrants to the Customer that the Products sold are not defective and that they conform to what has been set out in the Contract, that is, in particular, that the Products:

• Are appropriate for the purpose that goods of the same kind are normally used for;
• Possess the usual qualities and characteristics of goods of the same kind, and that the Customer can reasonably expect, taking into account the nature of the good.

Marginal differences between the description of the Product on the Site and the actual characteristics of the Product will not be considered cause for non-compliance of the Product for the purposes of the present Contract.
Without prejudice to the application of the mandatory consumer protection provisions, the guarantee of conformity of Products sold on the Site lasts for a period of 2 (two) years from the date of receipt of the Products on the part of the Customer.

The Customer will notify the Seller of any failure of conformity of the Products within a period of 30 (thirty) days from the date on which such failure of conformity is discovered by sending an email to returns@athleticsfootwear,com.
After receiving notice from the Customer, the Seller will contact the Customer to arrange the collection of the Products directly with the Customer.
The mere receipt of the Products on the part of the Seller after the initiation of the current procedure does not in any way represent recognition of a failure of conformity of the Products, there being necessary an accurate verification by the Seller.
