ORDERING AND AVAILABILITY
Products may be ordered by clicking on the items you wish to purchase and then following the prompts that will appear on-screen. You may check and correct any input errors in your order up until the point at which you submit your order to us by clicking the "Pay Securely Now" button on the checkout page.
After placing an order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received your order and giving you an order reference number. 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. We are not obliged to accept your order and may, at our discretion, decline to accept any order. You do, however, acknowledge that by clicking on the "Pay Securely Now" button, you enter into an obligation to pay for the Product(s) in the event that your order is accepted by us. Where we accept your order, we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an email that confirms this (Acceptance Confirmation). The contract between you and us in relation to the Products ordered (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Acceptance Confirmation. After entering into the Contract, we will be under a legal duty to supply you with goods that are in conformity with the Contract. We will send you an email confirming when the Product(s) has been dispatched together with (where applicable) a tracking number.
The Contract will relate only to those Products we have confirmed in the Acceptance Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until the acceptance of such orders has been confirmed in a separate Acceptance Confirmation.
Our product and service offers apply for as long as they remain visible on secondlife.decathlon.co.uk, except when special offers are available, in which case the term of validity of those offers will be stipulated on secondlife.decathlon.co.uk. You are advised to check the availability of items on the relevant product information page.
If an item ordered is not available, we reserve the right to cancel the order, in which case you will be notified accordingly. If you place an order for several Products one of which is unavailable, we will inform you accordingly. The rest of the order will be processed and dispatched to you within the timeframe indicated on secondlife.decathlon.co.uk.
Secondlife.decathlon.co.uk may also offer to replace the unavailable item with a similar item of similar quality with your prior agreement. In this case, if you then exercise your right to cancel the order after receipt of the substitute item, you will be required to pay the return postage costs.

We offer a variety of couriers for deliveries of Products, which you can select during the checkout process. It is not possible to specify a precise time at which a delivery will take place. Please note that the courier may require deliveries to be signed for.
Deliveries will be made to your door. Our courier will not be responsible for any additional carrying, unpacking or positioning of Products. If you order a large, heavy or bulky Products, you are advised to check that its dimensions (allowing for packaging) will allow it to pass freely through the doorways and corridors of the delivery address (or your car if you choose the Click and Collect delivery).
If you are unable to take delivery of items, you will have a certain period of time in which to collect the Product(s) from the specified courier. Thereafter, the Product(s) will be returned to us and we will consider you have exercised your right to cancel the order.
RISK AND OWNERSHIP
Products ordered will be at your risk from the time of delivery or collection (as the case may be).

PRICE AND PAYMENT
The price of Products is as quoted on secondlife.decathlon.co.uk from time to time.
Prices include VAT but exclude delivery costs, which will be automatically added (at the cost shown) to the total amount due once you have selected your chosen delivery method.
Prices and delivery costs are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you an Acceptance Confirmation.
Secondlife.decathlon.co.uk contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on secondlife.decathlon.co.uk 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 you the lower amount. If a Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on the Site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
Payment for all orders must be made by credit or debit card on the checkout page. We accept payment by most major credit and debit cards.
We will charge your credit or debit card to full payment as soon as we pick the first item of your order in the warehouse. If we unfortunately notice a lack of availability of one of the Products, we will advise you immediately and you will be able to choose between the cancellation of the whole Order or a partial refund.
Please note that in the payment transaction process, we ask the card issuer to ring fence (reserve) the amount of any order before we pick the first item. It means that even if you order one item, it may still appear that you were charged for it, but as soon as we inform the card issuer that the order has been cancelled, the funds will be released straight back to you.
You should be aware that online payment transactions are subject to validation checks by your card issuer and we are not responsible if your card issuer declines to authorise payment for any reason. Please note, it is possible that your card issuer may charge you an online handling fee or processing fee. We are not responsible for this.
You may cancel a Contract at any time in the first 14 days following the delivery of your order. Please consult the return policy for more information. Goods purchased under the Cycle Scheme can only be returned according to the Cycle Scheme Terms & Conditions.
If you cancel, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the Products in accordance with our refunds policy (see below).

You must also return the Products to us within 14 days after the day of notifying us of the cancellation, in the same condition in which you received them (which does not interfere with your right to take any reasonable steps to examine the Products and make sure they conform to your order). You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Products while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right to deduct the cost of any deterioration, up to the price of the Product, from the refund to which you are otherwise entitled.
