By placing an Order for products through this Site, you agree to be bound by and accept the Sales Terms in effect at the time of such Order. Other than as specifically provided in any separate written agreement between you and Fila, these Sales Terms may NOT be altered, supplemented or amended by the use of any other document(s), and all sales are expressly conditioned upon your agreement to these Sales Terms.

9.          ORDER AND FORMATION OF CONTRACT

9.1 When placing an Order, you must follow the instructions on the Site as to how to place your Order and for making changes to your Order before you submit it.

9.2 Once you select a product that you wish to order, you will then be shown or told (on the Site) the price you must pay including GST and any other applicable charges, including any delivery charges. Unless otherwise stated, the price and all charges are in Australian Dollars.

9.3 You must pay for the Order at the time of ordering by one of the payment methods we provide on the Site. You must pay for the Order in full at the time of ordering where directed by Fila or the payment method provider. You must be fully entitled to use the payment method or account used for purchases. The payment method or account must have sufficient funds or credit facilities to cover the purchase.

9.4 If you discover that you have made a mistake with your Order after you have submitted it to the Site, please contact our Customer Service Team. However, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to amend your Order in accordance with your instructions.

9.5 When you place an Order, you will receive from us a Confirmation of Order by email. This email will only be an acknowledgement and will not constitute acceptance of your Order. A contract between us for the purchase of the products will not be formed until you receive a shipment confirmation email from us. We are not obliged to supply the product to you until we have accepted your Order. We may refuse to accept an Order from you on reasonable grounds, including but not limited to:

(a) unavailability of stock or we may offer you an alternative product (in which case we may require you to re-submit your Order);

(b) if you are a stylist, a blogger or an influencer, we require you to utilise our services via our PR forum. If you email info@fila.com.au, our PR manager will be in contact for future wardrobe opportunities through our showroom; or

(c) we suspect that you might onsell our products to other consumers.

9.6 Until the time when we accept your Order, we reserve the right to refuse to process your Order and you have the right to cancel your Order. We will notify you if we are unable to accept your Order. If we or you have cancelled your Order before it has been accepted, we will promptly refund any payment already made by you to your original payment method.

9.7 We do not authorise the purchase of our merchandise for resale purposes. Hence, we may, on reasonable grounds, limit or cancel quantities purchased per person, per household or per Order. These restrictions may include Orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same credit card, and/or Orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. In the event that we make a change to or cancel an Order, we will attempt to notify you by contacting the email and/or billing phone number provided at the time the Order was made.  We also reserve the right to limit or prohibit Orders that, in our reasonable judgment, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers or distributors. We reserve the right to cease doing business with those customers violating this clause.

10.       PAYMENT METHODS

The Site currently accepts Shop Pay, Apple Pay, Google Pay, PayPal, Afterpay, ZIP, as well as VISA, MasterCard and American Express credit cards.

11.          GST, CUSTOMS CHARGES AND DUTIES

As our Site is based in Australia, we charge you for your Order in Australian dollars. For Orders placed outside Australia, please note that you are responsible for payment of any taxes, customs, import duties, clearance fees and other charges (where applicable) in connection with your Order in your own country. You may wish to check whether these charges apply with your local authorities. The actual price charged to non-Australian customers will be subject to the exchange rate applied by the customer’s credit or debit card company. 

12.           DELIVERY

12.1 We aim to deliver products to you at the place of delivery requested by you within the time indicated by us at the time of your Order, but we cannot guarantee any firm delivery dates.

12.2 Where you have provided contact information, we will try to contact you using your contact information to let you know if we expect to be unable to meet our estimated delivery date, but, to the extent permitted by law, we will not be liable to you for any losses, liabilities, costs, damages, charges or expenses arising out of late delivery.

12.3 You may grant us an ‘authority to leave’ when placing your Order. If you do, you understand and agree that this authority to leave gives us and/or our couriers permission to leave the products referred to in the Order unattended by the front door – or, where applicable, at the reception or concierge desk, or in accordance with your instructions – of the delivery address without obtaining a signature confirming delivery at the delivery location. In these circumstances, you understand and agree that by granting us authority to leave, we and our couriers are released of all responsibility and Liability for the Orders delivered and left unattended, and that this responsibility and Liability transfer to you on delivery.

12.4 If you do not grant us an 'authority to leave', you must ensure that you are able to take delivery of the product without undue delay and at any time reasonably specified by us. If you are not, the courier may leave a card giving you instructions on either re-delivery or collection. If delivery or collection is delayed through your unreasonable refusal to accept delivery or if you do not (within two weeks of our first attempt to deliver the product to you) accept delivery or collect the product, then we may (without affecting any other right or remedy available to us) do either or both of the following:

(a) charge you for our reasonable storage fee and other costs reasonably incurred by us; or

(b) no longer make the product available for delivery or collection and notify you that we are cancelling the applicable Contract, in which case we will refund to you or your credit or debit card company as applicable any money paid to us, less our reasonable administration charges (including for procuring the return of the product and any storage fees ).

12.5 Please note that it might not be possible for us to deliver to some locations. If this is the case, we will inform you using the contact details that you provide to us when you make your Order and arrange for cancellation of the Order or delivery to an alternative delivery address. As at the date of these Terms, Fila can only deliver products to customers in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, New Caledonia and Papua New Guinea.

12.6 Unless otherwise specified by you, ownership and all risk in the product shall pass to you upon delivery and, from delivery onwards, we will not be liable for loss or destruction of the product.

12.7 You must take care when opening the product so as not to damage it, particularly when using any sharp instruments.

13.       SHIPPING TERMS AND POLICIES

13.1 We strive to process all Orders for in stock items within two (2) Business Days. Our standard Business Days are Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm Australian Eastern Standard Time.

We reserve the right to substitute another courier of equal or lesser cost to deliver your Order. If expedited shipping is required (at additional cost), please select that as your shipping choice.

13.3 Delivery charges will be included on your invoice and can be viewed on a summary screen prior to finalising your Order. Delivery charges are based on the delivery location and method you select during the checkout process. The delivery charges shown during the checkout process are subject to verification. Delivery charges are subject to change and if the actual delivery charges are more than the amount shown on your invoice, we may contact you with the updated delivery charges before processing your Order, and you will have an opportunity to cancel your Order.

14.          CANCELLATION

14.1 We may terminate a Contract if the product is not available for any reason. We will notify you if this is the case and refund any payment that you have made. We will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for the product.

14.2 If you wish to cancel your Order, please contact our Customer Service Team via info@fila.com.au. No cancellation fees will apply. Once an Order has been processed, it cannot be cancelled and the item must instead be returned to us in accordance with our returns policy as set out below.

15.          FAULTY PRODUCT RETURNS

15.1 Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.

15.2 We aim to provide you with products of the highest standard and quality. If you have received a product with a defect, please contact us via info@fila.com.au as soon as possible so we can guide you through the returns process and help resolve the problem as swiftly as possible. In order to assist the returns process, you may be required to send us images of the damage, defect or fault for preliminary assessment.

15.3 If the product is confirmed to have a defect, we will replace the product or refund the price of the product to your original payment method, at your request. If the product is found not to have a defect or deemed out of warranty, we will ship the product back to you.

15.4 It does not constitute a defect, if in our reasonable opinion, the product has, following the sale to you, become of unacceptable quality due to fair wear and tear, misuse, failure to use in accordance with manufacturers’ instructions, using it in an abnormal way or failure to take reasonable care.

15.5 Nothing in these Terms is intended to exclude any of your statutory rights as a consumer under Australian Consumer Law. To the extent of any inconsistency between these Terms and the Australian Consumer Law, the Australian Consumer Law will prevail.

15.6 To the extent permitted by law, Fila does not warrant or represent that its products comply with the laws of any jurisdiction, other than Australia.

16.          CHANGE OF MIND RETURNS

16.1 In addition to your rights in relation to faulty products in clause 15, you can return any product:

(a) within 30 days of purchase;

(b) unworn and unused with the original tags still attached; and

(c) in the original packaging, which must be in the original condition, including branded dust bags and shoe boxes (you do not need the clear plastic packaging).

Please note that products sealed for hygiene reasons can only be returned under change of mind return policy if the seal is intact.  Occasionally, some products may be excluded from the change of mind return policy. The exclusion will be noted on the product page on our Site.

16.2 To ensure that returns are assessed and processed swiftly, you can lodge a returns request via the Returns Portal page. Information about our returns policy can also be found here.

16.3  Following receipt and inspection of your return, we will contact you about next steps. Once we determine that the return is in compliance with clause 16.1, we will, at your request:

(a) refund the price of the product returned; or

(b) exchange the product for another product of equivalent value.

16.4 However, we will not be able to refund any delivery fees that you have paid at purchase to have the product shipped to you. If the return, in our reasonable opinion, is not in compliance with clause 16.1, we will contact you to ship the product back to you.

16.5 Nothing in this clause is intended to exclude any rights in clause 15 or any of your statutory rights as a consumer under Australian Consumer Law.

17.          VOUCHERS, GIFT CARDS AND STORE CREDIT

17.1 You may use gift vouchers issued by Fila as payment for certain products on the Site. We may email these vouchers to you. We accept no Liability for errors in the email address provided to us. We assume no Liability for the loss, theft or illegibility of vouchers. In the event of fraud, an attempt at deception or if we reasonably suspect that other illegal activities have occurred in connection with the redemption of vouchers on the Site, we are entitled to close your Account and/or require a different means of payment.

17.2     Conditions for the redemption of vouchers

(a) From time to time we may release vouchers that may be used on the Site. Vouchers can only be redeemed on the Site in accordance with the special terms and conditions stated on them.

(b) Vouchers are valid for 3 years from date of issue. Certain products may be excluded from voucher promotions.

(c) Vouchers cannot be redeemed for cash. If you place an Order for a product less than the value of a voucher, no refund or residual credit will be returned to you. If the credit of a voucher is insufficient for the Order you wish to make, you may make up the difference through payment by other means (but not by using another voucher or attempting to rely on any other offer). Please note that only one voucher can be used per Order.

(d) Vouchers are applied to invoices as a whole. Accordingly, in circumstances where multiple products are purchased using a voucher, and one or more products are returned, the discount is applied on a pro rata basis to each product for the purpose of establishing refund values.

(e) If an Order made using a voucher is cancelled or returned, the portion of the Order attributable to the voucher will be refunded as a store credit voucher only.
