The presentation of our merchandise on our Site is a binding offer to conclude a contract. Choose the products you want to order by clicking on "Add to bag". This adds your chosen products to your basket. You can access your basket by clicking on the basket symbol on the upper right-hand side of the page (shopping bag). Here, you can change your choice of products any time before submitting your order by changing the number of items or clicking on "Remove" or "Edit" or simply by discontinuing your order. By clicking on "Checkout", you reach the next step of your order.

If you already have a customer account, you can now click the button “Sign in” and log in with your email address and password. If you don’t have a customer account, you may create a new customer account, or you can place an order without a prior registration. If you wish to place an order without creating a customer account first, you need to provide your name and contact details and select a shipping method. Required information is marked with an asterisk (*). Please fill in all the required fields with valid and correct information. If there is a deviating delivery address, this address must also be provided.

Via the button "Continue to payment method", you proceed to the next order step. Here, you can choose from the payment methods available to you. By clicking on "Continue to review & pay", you reach the final step of your order. Now, you can once again review your details and the chosen products as well as submit your binding order by clicking on "Buy Now". If there are any incorrect details, you can still correct them, before you click on “Buy Now”. Please note that you may edit your bag (products, amounts) at any time prior to placing your order by clicking the “Edit” link in the first checkout step.

Clicking the "Buy Now" button at the last stage of the ordering process issues an order for the products you have placed in the shopping bag and the contract is concluded. As soon as your order has been received by us and no later than 48 hours after reception of your order, you will receive an automatically generated order acknowledgement by email.

2.2 Governing language

Effects cancellation

If you cancel this contract, we shall reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (with the exception of the supplementary costs resulting from your choice of a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us), without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which we are informed about your decision to cancel this contract. We will make such reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement. We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest.

8.2 Voluntary returns policy (30 days)

Independent of your legal cancellation right, PUMA voluntarily offers you an additional right to return goods purchased in the PUMA online shop. Therefore, you may return goods without stating any reasons within 30 days from delivery, provided the goods are complete, unused and undamaged. The timely dispatch of the goods is sufficient to meet the deadline. This voluntary returns policy does not apply to Personalized Products as defined in § 4 above.

PUMA Online Shop

Eichenstrasse 10A / Tor 12

D-85445 Oberding

Germany.

We will carry out the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction. In any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement.

Your statutory rights, and particularly your legal cancellation right in clause 8.1, remain unaffected by this voluntary returns policy.

§ 9 Your legal rights

Your statutory warranty rights apply to the products you purchase without any limitations.

1. Warranty

In which cases can you exercise your warranty right?

In the event of a defective performance of PUMA, you may enforce a claim against PUMA in accordance with the provisions of the Civil Code.

What are your rights under your warranty claim?

You - at your discretion - can use the following warranty claims:

You may request a repair or replacement unless the fulfilment of your choice is impossible or would result in disproportionate expenses to PUMA compared to another claim of you. If you did not request or could not ask for repair or replacement, you may ask for a proportionate reduction in the consideration or you may repair the defect yourself or have it repaired at PUMA’s expense or finally also withdraw from the contract.

You may also switch from your chosen warranty right to another, but you will bear the cost of the switch-over, unless it was justified, or PUMA has given cause to the switch-over.

What is the deadline for enforcing your warranty claim?

You must inform PUMA of the defect immediately after discovering it, but not later than within two months of the discovery. Moreover, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that you may not enforce your warranty rights beyond the two-year limitation period after the performance of the contract.

To whom can you claim your warranty claim?

You can enforce your warranty claims against PUMA.

What other conditions are there for enforcing your warranty rights?

To claim warranty in case of a defect discovered within six months of delivery, there is no other requirement save for informing the company, if you certify that the product or service was provided by PUMA. However, after six months of delivery, you are already required to prove that the defect you discovered existed already at the time of delivery.

2. Product guarantee

In which cases can you exercise your product guarantee rights?

In the event of a defect in a movable object (product), you may - at your discretion - claim the right specified in Section 1 or a product guarantee claim.

What are your rights under your product guarantee claim?

As a product guarantee claim, you may only request the repair or replacement of the defective product.

In which case is the product considered defective?

The product is defective if it does not meet the quality requirements of the product when it is placed on the market, or if it does not have the properties described in PUMA's description.

What is the deadline for enforcing your product guarantee claim?

You may enforce your product guarantee claim within two years of the product being marketed by PUMA. At the end of this period, you cannot claim this right.

To whom and under what other conditions can you claim your product guarantee claim?

You may only exercise your product guarantee claim against PUMA of the movable object. You must prove that the product is defective when claiming product guarantee.

In what case is PUMA exempted from the product guarantee obligation?

PUMA is only exempted from product liability if it can prove that:

  • the product was not manufactured or marketed in the course of its business activity, or
  • the fault was not recognizable at the time of placing on the market, according to the state of the science and technology
  • a product defect results from the application of legislation or mandatory regulatory requirements.

It is sufficient that PUMA proves only one of these reasons to be exempted.

Please note that due to the same defect, you may not enforce warranty and product guarantee claims simultaneously. However, in the event of successful enforcement of your product guarantee claim, you may enforce the warranty claim against the manufacturer on the replaced product or repaired part.

Any claims can be sent to:

PUMA Online Shop, Postfach 201101, 48092 Münster, Germany
Phone: (+36) 01 - 84 806 85, E-Mail: service@puma.com

§ 12 Codices

§ 13 Online Dispute Resolution Platform

The European Commission provides an online dispute resolution platform, which can be found at http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/. Puma Europe GmbH is not obliged and willing to participate in dispute settlement proceedings before this consumer arbitration board.

You have also the right to turn to the Arbitration Board attached to the Budapest Chamber of Industry and Commerce in case of a consumer dispute. The competence of the arbitration board shall cover the settlement of consumer disputes out of court. To this end, the arbitration board’s responsibilities shall include to attempt to reach a conciliation agreement for the settlement of the dispute or, failing this, to adopt a decision in the case to enforce consumer rights simply, efficiently and practically and under the principle of cost-efficiency. The arbitration board shall provide advice upon the consumer’s or the business entity’s request on the rights and obligations of the consumer.

In connection with cross-border consumer disputes concerning online sales or online service contracts the Arbitration Board attached to the Budapest Chamber of Industry and Commerce has exclusive jurisdiction:
