    2. All returns authorised by SSS must be returned in a re-saleable condition ensuring that any identifying mark or original packaging (including serial numbers or barcodes) on or relating to the Goods have not been destroyed, removed, defaced or obscured and ensuring that the Goods are returned to SSS without any identifying mark (including serial numbers or barcodes) of the Buyer.

    3. Without prejudice to condition 13(a), should there be extenuating circumstances under which the return of non-defective Goods supplied in accordance with the Contract is accepted by SSS, SSS reserves the right to apply a handling charge in respect of the returned Goods.

    5. mi adidas / mi team products are custom made to order and relate exclusively to a specific non-cancellable customer order. That means we cannot accept returns, except in cases of manufacturing defects.

    1. Unless otherwise agreed in writing by SSS, no liability (whether in contract, tort (including, without limit, negligence) or otherwise howsoever) for any item of Goods that is defective (such defect being obvious upon a reasonable inspection of the Goods) or for non-delivery or for an alleged shortage of Goods will attach to SSS unless claims are notified in writing to SSS within 7 days of delivery for defective Goods or alleged shortages, or 14 days from the date of the invoice for Goods not received.

    2. In the event of a valid claim for defects, shortages or non-delivery of the Goods notified in accordance with condition 14(a), the sole liability of SSS shall be, at its option, to either credit the Buyer with the price invoiced to or paid by the Buyer to SSS for the item of Goods concerned, or to repair or replace it.

    3. In substitution for all rights which the Buyer would or might have but for these Conditions, SSS undertakes that, if within six months of delivery of any item of the Goods a defect in materials or workmanship appears therein, being a defect which would not be obvious upon a reasonable inspection of the Goods (whether or not such an inspection was carried out), it will at its discretion either replace or repair the same or credit the Buyer with the value thereof, provided that in any case such Goods have been accepted and paid for by the Buyer.

    4. In order for condition 13(c) above to apply, the Buyer shall inform SSS within 7 days of the date when such defects appeared or ought reasonably to have been discoverable, and shall return the defective Goods to SSS at the address set out in condition 1(b).

    5. Damaged or defective returned products will be inspected by the SSS Quality Assurance Manager and credited or replaced if the damage is the result of a manufacturing defect or deviation from factory specifications. If the damage or defect was caused by reasons other than materials quality or assembly process, the original product is returned to you. SSS will not refund products:

      • Obtained from an alternative source

      • Damaged by abuse or negligence (exposure to chemicals, caustic substances, open flame, high heat, sharp object, etc.)

      • Damaged by misuse or activities other than the intended purpose (use of track running shoes used on unsuitable surfaces or boxing boots as outdoor footwear, etc.)

    6. The life expectancy of any adidas 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 life of the product are not replaced.

    Where the Buyer sells the Goods through retail premises, the Buyer undertakes at all times during the life of the Contract to store and display the Goods in clean conditions, in an attractive manner and by reference to sports or adidas category (as appropriate) and generally so as to enable customers of the Buyer to compare and contrast the Goods with other appropriate products.

    SSS may publish suggested retail prices for its products. The Buyer is, however, entirely free to resell the Goods at whatever price it considers appropriate.

    No statement, description, information, warranty, condition or recommendation contained in any catalogue, trade terms, price list, advertisement or communication or made verbally by any of SSS's agents or employees shall be construed to enlarge, vary or override in any way these Conditions.

    1. The paragraph headings of these Conditions are not intended to affect their interpretation.

    2. Each of the provisions and separable parts of these Conditions shall be construed as independent and standing on its own. Should any part of these Conditions be or become partially or totally invalid or for any reason unenforceable such part shall be deemed deleted and none of the other provisions or parts thereof shall be invalidated or affected in any way and shall remain in full force and effect. Without prejudice to the foregoing, the parties shall attempt to substitute any such invalid or unenforceable provision or subprovision with a valid or enforceable provision, which achieves to the greatest extent possible, the commercial expectations of the parties as at the commencement date of the Contract.

    3. A failure by SSS to enforce any right conferred upon it by these Conditions shall not be deemed to be a waiver of such right or operate so as to bar the exercise or enforcement thereof at any subsequent time or times.

    4. If one party needs to give a formal notice to the other it shall do so in writing, sent by pre-paid first class post to the recipient’s registered office address. A notice given in this way shall be deemed to have been received 48 hours after despatch. In proving service it shall be sufficient to prove despatch.

    5. Unless otherwise notified by SSS in writing, the Buyer shall keep confidential at all times any and all information, data and other items (“Information") received from SSS.

    6. The Contract and any other contract between SSS and the Buyer shall be deemed in all respects as being performed and construed according to the laws of England and Wales and the parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.
