Intellectual Property in your Contribution

CONDITIONS OF SUPPLY
Our Website is only intended for use by people resident in the European Union (excluding Germany) (the “Territory”). We do not accept orders from individuals outside the Territory.
Products listed on our Website are subject to availability (although we will do our best to ensure that all material and information published on our Website is accurate). If we cannot supply you with the Product(s) you ordered, we will not process your order and will inform you of this in writing (including email). If you have already paid for the Product or service, we will refund you in full as soon as reasonably possible.
By placing an order through our Website, you warrant that:
(a) You are legally capable of entering into binding contracts;
(b) You are at least 18 years old;
(c) You are resident in the Territory; and
(d) You are accessing our Website from within the Territory.
The Contract Between Us
You can check and correct any input errors in your order up until clicking the “Place Order” button on the payment and delivery page. The contract between us shall be concluded in English. To the extent that these terms and conditions (or any part of them) are made available in languages other than English, the English language version shall take priority.
The details of your specific contract will not be filed by FitFlop, but details of your order history will be available through your “My Account” page.
You are required to provide us with your email address when placing an order (or when registering an account with us). We will notify you by email as soon as possible to confirm that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us (taking account, for example, of you meeting the eligibility criteria set out above, stock availability, identification of a pricing or product description error, our ability to obtain authorisation for your payment and the risk of fraud), and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Product has been dispatched (“Dispatch Confirmation”). We may choose not to accept your order for any reason and will not be liable to you or to anyone else in those circumstances. The contract between us (“Contract”) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
The Contract will relate only to those Products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.
The price of any Products will be as quoted on our Website from time to time, except in cases of obvious error. These prices include VAT and other sales taxes but exclude delivery costs, which will be added to your order before your payment is finalised. Prices and delivery charges displayed are valid and effective only in the Territory.
Prices are liable to change at any time, but (except in cases of obvious error) changes will not affect orders in respect of which the ordering process is complete.
Our Website contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our Website may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you.
We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a Dispatch Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
We may from time to time offer promotional discount codes (either directly or via third parties) which may apply in respect of any, or certain specified, purchases made though this Website. Unless otherwise expressly stated, such codes may only be applied to purchases of full-price items and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer or discounts.
You can pay by MasterCard, Visa credit, Visa debit, Visa Electron, JCB, Maestro, Solo and PayPal. In placing your order with a credit/debit card, you confirm that the card being used is yours and/or you are authorised to use it and that there are sufficient funds or credit facilities to cover the cost of any Products or services. We reserve the right to obtain validation of your credit or debit card details before providing you with any Products or services. All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your card refuses to authorise payment we will not accept your order or be under any obligation to deliver the relevant Products, we will not be obliged to inform you of the reason for the refusal and we will not be liable for non-delivery of the Products ordered. We are not responsible for your card issuer or bank charging you as a result of our processing of your credit/debit card payment in accordance with your order.
Your credit /debit card will be charged when we dispatch your order from our warehouse.
All card payments are subject to authorisation by your card issuer and we take payment when we accept your order shortly before dispatch. If your payment is not received and you have already received the Products you ordered from us, you must pay for the Products or return those Products to us in accordance with reasonable return instructions that we provide to you and in the same condition that you received them at your own expense. If you do not do this within thirty (30) days of the date on which we cancel your order, we may collect (or arrange for collection) the Products at your expense. We reserve the right to charge you for any and all damage to (or other adverse interference with) any Products that are the subject of an unpaid order.
Your Right to Cancel
If you are contracting as a consumer within the Territory, you may cancel an order at any time (and without having to give any reason) within fourteen (14) days (or, if longer, ten working days), beginning on the day after you received the relevant Products (please see the Cancellations section below for more information on your cancellation right). In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the Products in accordance with the Returns section.
In addition to your cancellation right set out above, you may return any Products purchased from our Website within twenty-eight (28) days of the dispatch date in accordance with the terms set out in the Returns section.
Our Right to Cancel Orders
We reserve the right cancel orders where, for example, you have breached these terms and conditions or where we have a reasonable suspicion of fraud. If we cancel an order, it will be without charge to you.
Delivery & Returns
Subject to availability, we will use all reasonable means to deliver the Product(s) you have ordered within the time stated for the delivery service you have selected after your order is accepted by us. Due to the size of some of the Products or large quantities ordered we may have to split your order and you might receive multiple parcels. Please note you will only be charged once for delivery.
The confirmation of dispatch email will contain an ‘order tracking number’ and a link to the website of our nominated courier to enable you to track the status of your delivery. We aim to dispatch the goods as soon as practicably possible and in most instances (if the item is in stock) this is within one working day. Any dates we specify for delivery of goods are approximate and, subject always to our Exclusion of Liability Statement, we shall not be liable for any losses, costs, damages, charges or expenses caused by any delay.

If your order has already been dispatched or delivered, then you’ll need to follow our Returns Procedure to return the Products to us. Should we dispatch out but not receive a cancelled order back, we reserve the right to have the relevant Products collected at your cost.
It's important that returned Products are in the best possible condition, so please take reasonable care of them and keep all packaging. (If you’re trying footwear on for fit, you should stay indoors while you walk around in them)

Please Look after the Products
It's important that returned Products are in the best possible condition, so please take reasonable care of them and keep all packaging.
In all cases, except where an item is faulty or where you have cancelled your order in accordance with the Cancellation section, the item(s) returned must be in their original and saleable condition without having been worn outdoors. This includes all packaging and labelling. (If you’re trying footwear on for fit, may we suggest you stay inside while you walk around in them?)
All Products will be inspected on return.
If we have sent you the wrong items, or your order is faulty (see the Faulty or Damaged Products section below), damaged or not as described on arrival, please contact us. We will refund the postal charges you incur to return such items. Please make sure that you obtain proof of postage from your post office, and we will credit your account as soon as possible.
If you cancel an order in accordance with the Cancellation section, we will NOT (unless otherwise stated) refund the postal charges you incur to return such items.
For all other returns, the initial delivery charge IS NON-REFUNDABLE (unless otherwise stated) and you must also pay the postal charges for returning the Products (i.e. this will NOT be refunded by FitFlop).
If you cancel an order in accordance with the Cancellation section we will refund the price paid (including any applicable initial delivery charge) to the original payment method within thirty (30) days of your notice of cancellation.
For all other returns, on receipt at our warehouse, standard inspection checks will be carried out on the returned Products and, once approved, a refund to the original payment method for the price paid will be issued (note that except where we have sent you the wrong items, or your order is faulty, damaged or not as described on arrival, we will not (unless otherwise stated) refund the initial delivery charge or the postal charges you incur to return such items). Please allow up to ten (10) working days from receipt for this refund to be made.
We cannot accept liability nor can we take responsibility for any bank charges that you may have incurred during the order process.
FAULTY PRODUCTS & RECALLS
Faulty or Damaged Products
Nothing in this section affects your legal rights as a consumer under applicable laws. If any Product you purchase is damaged or faulty when delivered, we may offer an exchange or refund as appropriate, in accordance with your legal rights. Please note that if the damage to a Product is deemed to be malicious (who, you ask, would want to attack an innocent FitFlop item?), no refund (not Product, nor delivery charge, nor return postage) will be made.
If you believe a Product is faulty, you should notify our Customer Service Department (see the Returns section) and return the Product in accordance with the Returns section.
We have taken reasonable steps to display, as accurately as possible, the colours and other detailing of our products in the images that appear on the Website. However, as the actual colours and detailing you see onscreen will depend on your monitor, we cannot guarantee that your monitor’s display of any colour or other detailing will exactly reflect the colour or detailing of the product upon delivery.
In the extremely unlikely event we recall a product(s), you agree to cooperate fully with us and will provide all reasonable assistance in the event as required by us. Please notify us immediately if you know or suspect there is a possibility of products becoming or needing to become the subject of a recall.
