Items should be returned with the original packaging and with any labels still attached and be in a new and unused condition. We are entitled to deduct an amount from the refund to reflect any loss in value of the goods supplied if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling of the goods by you.
The Consumer Contract (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations do not apply to Financial and Insurance Services.
18. THE CONTRACT
After placing an order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received your order for the Goods, and the delivery services you have requested from the delivery service provider. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to Sigma Sports to buy Goods. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an email that confirms that the Goods have been dispatched by the delivery service provider (the "Dispatch Confirmation"). The contract between you and Sigma Sports will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
The contract will relate only to those Goods whose dispatch (by the delivery service provider) we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Goods which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Goods has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.
19. CANCELLATION BY SIGMA SPORTS
We reserve the right to cancel the contract between us if:
- We have insufficient stock to deliver the Goods you have ordered
- The delivery service provider does not deliver to your area
- One or more of the Goods you ordered was listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical error or an error in the pricing information received by us from our suppliers; or
- We have reason to suspect that there is a risk of a fraudulent transaction
If we do cancel your contract, we will notify you by email and will re-credit to your account any sum deducted by us in respect of Goods provided by us, and delivery services provided by the delivery service provider (unless amounts in respect of delivery are refunded directly by the delivery service provider), from your debit or credit card as soon as possible but in any event within 30 days of your order. We will not be obliged to offer any additional compensation for disappointment suffered.
20. Dispute Resolution
Online dispute resolution for consumer pursuant to Section 14.1 of Regulation (EU) 524/2013
The European Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution which is available at the following link:
21. Product Weights
All product weights are supplied by the manufacturer unless otherwise stated. We cannot be held responsible for inaccurate weights.
22. Product Pricing
UK & the EU
If your order is being delivered to a country within the EU, the relevant VAT amount will be included in the product price you see on the product page and in your basket. Sales tax will not be added separately to your order total later. Selecting to pay by an alternative currency will not impact the rate of VAT you are charged.
You should not be charged any import duty or sales tax when your order arrives at your local customs as you have already paid this when placing your order with Sigma Sports.
Rest of World
For orders being delivered to countries outside of the EU no VAT will be included in the product prices you see on our website.
International payment is taken by our international sales facilitation and fulfilment partner, Global-e. The price of products is calculated according to the rate of exchange between the base currency on our website and the currency that you select as part of the purchase process at the time you place your order. In some circumstances, the MSP price is localised for certain products. Global-e reserve the right to update such exchange rates regularly at its sole discretion, and you acknowledge that such updates may affect product pricing on the website. You will be charged according to the applicable exchange rate at the time you place your order via the website.
For certain shipping destination countries and/or products, you may be offered the option to pre-pay applicable taxes, which will then be calculated and included in the final price when you place an order through the website. You acknowledge that such taxes are set by the shipping destination country and therefore may vary from country to country.
For clarity, the option to pre-pay taxes may not be available for your shipping destination country and/or your products, in which case: (a) you acknowledge that the amount of taxes displayed under the pre-pay option on the website is an estimate only, and the actual taxes payable by you may be more or less than such estimate; and (b) you will be fully responsible for paying all applicable taxes directly to the relevant authority (and for reclaiming them in the event of a cancellation of your order or the return of products, to the extent permitted in the these Terms) as determined by the authorities of the shipping destination country, and Global-e shall have no responsibility or liability in connection with the foregoing.
23. Waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE)
Unwanted electrical equipment is the UK's fastest growing type of waste. Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment. If you do not recycle, electrical equipment will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination – harming wildlife and also human health.
What is WEEE?
The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items. In the UK, distributors (including retailers) must provide a system which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge.
We can help!
To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with a crossed‐out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol) in your bin.
You can recycle waste electronic equipment free of charge at a local authority collection point.
Veolia ES WEEE Compliance Scheme (UK) Ltd.
You can dispose of packaging materials free of charge at local packaging collection points or in dedicated disposal bins available in some local authorities.
24. UCI World Road Championships Competition
One entry allowed per person. All prizes are non-refundable, non-transferable, non-exchangeable and there is no cash alternative offered. The winner will receive one prize bundle and two VIP Hospitality tickets. Hospitality tickets to the UCI World Championships will be allocated to the competition winner and one guest. Tickets can not be resold and only the originally named competition winner will be able to access hospitality on the day of the event. If the winner fails to attend the event, they will not be able to claim their prize. The winner will be notified on the day of the draw via email and will be asked to provide their full name and cycle clothing sizes. If a winner fails to respond within 24 hours of this notification, a redraw will take place from the remaining valid entries and a new winner will be chosen. If any winner declines a prize or fails to respond within the required period, they forfeit any right to the prizes. Cost for travel and accommodation are not covered and will need to be organised by the winner. Sigma Sports reserves the right to change the prizes to suitable alternatives of the same value at any time. Entries close at 11:55pm BST on 30th August 2019.
