Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully and make sure that you understand them, before ordering any Products from our website. Please note that before placing an order you will be asked to agree to these Terms and Conditions. If you refuse to accept these Terms and Conditions, you will not be able to order any Products from our website.
2. CONTACTING US IF YOU ARE A CONSUMER
2.1 To cancel a Contract in accordance with your legal right to do so as set out in clause 5, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel in the way set out in clause 5.3.
2.2 If you wish to contact us for any other reason, including because you have any complaints, you can contact us by telephoning our customer service team or by e-mailing us on our contacts page.
2.3 If we have to contact you or give you notice in writing, we will do so by e-mail or by pre-paid post to the address you provide to us in your order.
3. OUR PRODUCTS
3.1 The images of the Products on our site are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that your computer’s display of the colours accurately reflect the colour of the Products. Your Products may vary slightly from those images.
3.2 The packaging of the Products may vary from that shown on images on our site.
4. HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED BETWEEN YOU AND US
4.1 Our shopping pages will guide you through the steps you need to take to place an order with us. Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please take the time to read and check your order at each page of the order process.
4.2 All orders that you place on this website will be subject to acceptance in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. Following your confirmation and placing of the order we send out an acknowledgement email detailing the order and the final price you will pay for the Products including tax and shipping costs. Please note that this email is not an order confirmation or order acceptance of your order by New Balance and we reserve the right to reject such order or limit the quantity of Products under such order. Our acceptance of your order will take place as described in clause 4.3.
4.3 We will confirm our acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Products have been dispatched (Dispatch Confirmation). The Contract between us will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
4.4 If we are unable to supply you with a Product, for example because that Product is not in stock or no longer available or because we cannot meet your requested delivery date, we will inform you of this by e-mail and we will not process your order.
5. YOUR CONSUMER RIGHT OF RETURN AND REFUND
5.1 If you are a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a Contract under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (the "Regulations") during a specified cancellation period. This means that during the cancellation period if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep a Product, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
5.2 Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the Dispatch Confirmation (the date on which we e-mail you to confirm our acceptance of your order), which is when the Contract between us is formed. Your deadline for cancelling the Contract then depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered. The Regulations specify a 14 day cancellation period starting on the date of delivery but we have chosen to extend this to give you more time to decide whether or not you wish to return a product. The cancellation periods are shown in the table below:
|Your Contract||End of the cancellation period|
|Your Contract is for a single Product (which is not delivered in instalments on separate days).||The end date is the end of 30 days after the day on which you receive the Product. Example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January and you receive the Product on 10 January you may cancel at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 9 February.|
|Your Contract is for multiple Products which are delivered on separate days.||The end date is 30 days after the day on which you receive the last of the separate Products ordered. Example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January and you receive the first of your separate Products on 10 January and the last separate Product on 15 January you may cancel in respect of any or all of the separate Products at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 14 February.|
Items purchased on newbalance.co.uk between November 1, 2016 and December 31, 2016 are eligible for return until January 31, 2017.
5.3 To cancel a Contract, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel.
You can e-mail us or contact our Customer Services team by telephone or by post using the e-mail address or the telephone number or postal address for your country as set out on our contacts page. If you are e-mailing us or writing to us please include details of your order to help us to identify it. If you send us your cancellation notice by e-mail or by post, then your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the e-mail or post the letter to us. For example, you will have given us notice in time as long as you get your letter into the last post on the last day of the cancellation period or e-mail us before midnight on that day. For further information on how to return Products, please see our FAQs page.
5.4 If you cancel your Contract we will:
(a) refund you the price you paid for the Products. However, please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the Products, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. See our FAQs page for information about what handling is acceptable and examples]. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the Products and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
(b) refund any delivery costs you have paid, although, as permitted by law, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer (provided that this is a common and generally acceptable method). For example, if we offer delivery of a Product within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the Product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
(c) make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:
(i) if you have received the Product and we have not offered to collect it from you: 14 days after the day on which we receive the Product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Product back to us. For information about how to return a Product to us, see clause 5.6;
(ii) if you have not received the Product or you have received it and we have offered to collect it from you: 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract.
5.5 We will refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay. If you used vouchers to pay for the Product we may refund you in vouchers.
5.6 If a Product has been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your Contract:
(a) then you must return it to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the Contract. You can either send it back, return it to us via our authorised carrier using the return label enclosed with your Product. Please see our FAQs page for our returns address;
(b) unless the Product is faulty or not as described (in this case, see clause 10), you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Products to us. If we have offered to collect the Product from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection.
5.7 Because you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply Products that are in conformity with this Contract. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in this clause 5 or anything else in these Terms and Conditions. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
6.1 Following receipt of the Dispatch Confirmation you will be able to track the progress of your order through our authorized carrier.
