Thereafter, the parcel will be returned to Decathlon.co.uk. The Decathlon.co.uk will then send a reminder.

- Must describe the condition of the parcel being refused in detail on the delivery note
- Must have the carrier countersign the delivery note
- Will have a period of 3 calendar days (excluding bank holiday) in which to notify Decathlon.co.uk by any means.

5- WARRANTIES AND AFTER-SALES SERVICE

Your item is damaged or faulty

Notwithstanding the sales warranty covering certain items sold on our website, Decathlon.co.uk is required to provide the statutory warranty against defects and the warranty against hidden defects in accordance with English law, for all items sold on the Website.

Certain items sold on the Website are covered by a sales warranty for the term stipulated on the relevant web page.
However, this warranty does not cover problems caused by negligence, damage or inappropriate use of the item by you. Decathlon.co.uk draws your attention to defects and problems which can only be caused by incorrect installation or handling of equipment. In this respect, Decathlon.co.uk asks you to follow the instructions in the help guides available on the Website and to conduct several tests on the equipment received.

How can I have my item repaired during the warranty period?

In case of a fault during the warranty period, contact the Decathlon.co.uk After-Sales Department. In order to return an item to Decathlon.co.uk, go to My account, click on Track my orders and specify the problems or malfunctions encountered with the relevant item(s). You will then be provided with a returns number.

As part of this warranty, Decathlon.co.uk allows you to choose whether to return your item to a Decathlon store in your country of residence or to Decathlon.co.uk. Postage/shipping costs, regardless of the method chosen, must be borne by you.

Once the item has been processed by Decathlon.co.uk, which will check in particular whether it is covered by the sales warranty, the item will be repaired or exchanged. If the cause of the problem is covered by the sales warranty and the item is irreparable and cannot be exchanged for an identical or equivalent item, you will be provided with a credit note or a refund. In any case, if the problem is covered by the sales warranty, Decathlon.co.uk will offer the most appropriate solution (by replacing the faulty part, replacing the item or issuing a refund).

If an item is returned without good reason or if you have not read and followed the instructions in the help guides provided on the Website, the return will be deemed non-compliant and processed as such. Similarly, any items that are returned without a returns number will be systematically processed as non-compliant returns.
You may choose how to return your item and whether you wish to take out insurance for loss, theft or destruction of your parcel. Decathlon.co.uk does not cover any of these expenses and will not be liable if your parcel goes missing.
Lastly, you are responsible for packaging your item such that there is no risk of damage or deterioration in transit.

6- RETENTION OF TITLE

Decathlon.co.uk will retain full title to items purchased by you until you have fulfilled all of your obligations, particularly by paying the full price of the order, plus interest where applicable.

7- ENTIRE AGREEMENT

These General Terms and Conditions of Sale comprise all of the clauses herein. No forbearance in relying on a clause of these Terms and Conditions at any time will constitute a waiver of the right to subsequently rely on those clauses. If one clause is invalid, the other clauses will remain valid.

8- GOVERNING LAW

These General Terms and Conditions of Sale are governed by English law. However, if you live in a country within the European Union other than the United Kingdom, You may rely on the law applicable in your country of residence where such provisions are more favourable than English law.

In connection with a business-to-business sales contract, the Parties expressly agree that this contract is governed by English law. The Parties expressly agree that the Vienna Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will not apply to their relationship.
