5. ROLE OF Decathlon AND THIRD PARTY SELLERS

Notwithstanding that We make available and sell our services and products on the Website, We allow third-party sellers to make available and sell their services and products thereon. If any service or product is made available and sold by a third-party seller on the Website, the third-party seller shall be specified on the respective page of the service or product or in any reasonable manner as Decathlon shall determine to be appropriate. In connection with services and products sold by third-party sellers, whilst We are responsible for managing and administering the Website and facilitating transactions thereon, We are neither the purchaser nor the seller of such services or products. Any content on the Website describing the services or products to be provided to you by a third-party seller is for the purpose of providing you with access to information, products or services provided by the third-party seller, as well as the terms and conditions under which the third-party seller will provide them to you. We are not liable for the content provided by those third-party sellers or any of their services or products and are unable to provide a guarantee that they shall remain permanently available. The fact that We include such content does not mean that We endorse the third-party seller; our relationship with them is governed by separate terms, which We use reasonable endeavours to enforce in order to ensure that they act in a professional manner in relation to what they provide. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, all contracts in respect of such services or products are formed between You and the third-party seller who makes available and sells such services or products, whereas Decathlon is not a party to the aforesaid contracts. You are purchasing directly from third-party sellers rather than Decathlon, which is not an agent, partner, joint venturer or in any other capacity on your behalf or on behalf of any of the third-party sellers. Apart from that, where a third-party seller who provides products or services needs a licence under Hong Kong law or regulations, please note that We do not hold such a licence. Your purchase from the third-party seller is strictly subject to the third-party’s seller’s terms and conditions. You are responsible to check the individual third party’s terms and conditions before the purchase and transaction. 

5.1 OTHER SELLERS’ DELIVERY

We arrange for delivery of all services or products sold by Decathlon. Any provision or delivery of any third-party seller's service or product on the Website is arranged by third-party sellers and/or their contractors or any third parties to whom Decathlon is not related save and except that We may decide to offer and provide fulfilment including delivery services.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, the limitations set out herein apply in relation to the provision or delivery of any third-party seller’s service or product.

5.2 ACCESS, CREDENTIALS AND Decathlon ACCOUNT

You are responsible for ensuring that your equipment is compatible with, and meets all specific requirements enabling You to access the Website. You are further responsible for ensuring to have appropriate IT security in place (including antivirus software and other security controls) to satisfy your specific requirements in terms of content security and reliability.

You may access and display the Website’s contents on a computer screen and a screen on an applicable device, and print individual pages. Additional terms and conditions may apply to certain services of, parts of, or content on the Website. Where applicable, they will be displayed on the screen or will be accessible via a link.

If You choose or receive connection credentials (such as a username or password) as part of our security procedures, You must keep that information confidential and not disclose it to any other person. You unreservedly accept that your identification constitutes proof of your identity and You agree to safeguard your account information, to supervise and to be completely responsible for any use of your account by anyone other than You, including your interaction and communication with others. You must immediately notify Us of any unauthorised use or any security breach of which You become aware.

We retain the right at our sole discretion not to confirm, to suspend or to delete any Credentials and/or to prohibit use and/or access to the Website and/or to deny anyone access to the Website, at any time and for any reason, including for violation of this Agreement. In particular, any user who attempts to make a false or fraudulent reservation, whether intentionally or unintentionally, may have his or her account terminated.

You are required to be a member of Decathlon to use the Website and place an order thereon. By registering Decathlon membership, You accept the Terms and Conditions of Decathlon’s Membership and Products [https://www.decathlon.com.hk/en/terms-and-conditions_lp-LR519Ms].

To the fullest extent permitted by law, should any dispute, inconsistency or controversy arise, we retain the right to accept or refuse the request for refund or exchange, and this decision shall be final.

5.3 OUR SERVICES AND PRODUCTS

Please refer to the Terms and Conditions of Decathlon’s Membership and Products [https://www.decathlon.com.hk/en/terms-and-conditions_lp-LR519Ms], which govern, inter alia, the services and products made available and sold to You by Decathlon.

5.4. PRICE AND PAYMENT

In additional to the prices of the services or products shown on the Website, we may charge you any delivery charges, service fees and other applicable charges in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. The prices are shown on the Website in Hong Kong Dollars.

If we introduce any new or additional charges in the future, which We reserve the right to do, we will notify You by making the change in charges clear on the Website but this would not affect existing orders made prior to the change in charges.

We may, in Our sole discretion, create promotional coupons that may be redeemed for the order of the services and products and the use of Facilities, subject to any additional terms that We establish (“Coupons”). You agree that Coupons: (i) must be used for the intended purpose, and in a lawful manner; (ii) may not be duplicated, sold or transferred in any manner, or made available to the general public (whether posted to a public forum or otherwise), unless expressly permitted by Us; (iii) may be disabled by Us at any time for any reason without liability to You; (iv) may only be used pursuant to the specific terms that We establish; (v) are not valid for cash; and (vi) may expire prior to your use. We reserve the right to withhold or deduct credits or other features or benefits obtained through the use of Coupons by You or any other user in the event that We determine or believe that the use or redemption of the Coupon was in error, fraudulent, illegal, or in violation of the applicable Coupon terms or these Terms of Use.

There are several payment methods. You can pay by credit card, debit card, online payment system or any other method as We may notify to You from time to time.

If You choose to pay by card, the prices of your selected services and/or products will be debited from your account once your order is ready to be taken into account.

Online payment transactions are put through validation systems by your card issuer. We are not liable if your card issuer refuses to authorise payment for any reason whatsoever. We draw your attention to the fact that your card issuer may charge You processing or online processing fees. We are not responsible for such fees.

We engage third-party companies and payment processors from time to time to process payments securely including banks and online payment systems (and such payment processors may be varied by us at our discretion in the future). Your bank details are forwarded to this company securely, with the result that they do not pass through the Website’s IT system at any time, and are not accessible by the Website or its employees save and except that We are given by the payment processors partial information, including last 4 digits of the card number and the holder name and the expiry month and year of the card (in case of credit or debit credit) and the email address associated with your payment account (in case of online payment system), for reference. Please note that this third-party company processes your payment, not Us. You agree to review and be bound by its policies and procedures before making an order through the Website.

If you decide to store the details of your bank card on the Website so that you do not have to re-enter the information when you make a subsequent payment, We undertake to only hold a key which, in conjunction with other information, allows You to pay for the transaction, while the details of your bank card continue to be stored and processed by the third-party company.

If an anti-fraud check is carried out to ensure the security of customer transactions, We may ask You to provide one or more documents containing proof of your address and/or a copy of a valid identity card(s) by email, before your order is confirmed. Your order will only be final once the Website has received these documents and issued a confirmation email. In the absence of these documents or if the documents do not adequately establish your identity and address, We reserve the right to reject the order. The Website also reserves the right to refuse an order in the event of an ongoing payment dispute.

In order to evidence the contractual relationships you and Decathlon have entered into, your order information is stored on a reliable database. In the absence of proof to the contrary, our electronic databases and those of our service providers that are kept under adequate security conditions will constitute proof of all transactions entered into between you and Decathlon. In any event, We recommend that You save the confirmation email.

5.5 USE OF THE WEBSITE

The order via the Website is individual to You. We and third-party sellers may verify your identity.

The Website is provided to you as an individual and not as a business or, even if You are not carrying on a business, for the purpose of making any type of financial gain from making purchases. If We discover that you are using the Website or making purchases as a business or for any type of financial gain we will immediately cancel all orders made by you without any refund and without liability to You.
