ARTICLE 1. APPLICABILITY OF THE SALES TERMS; ACCOUNTS & SECURITY

1.1
These Sales Terms that have been made available online by the Seller on www.g-star.com, together with the Website Terms of Use and the Privacy Policy (you can find the link at the bottom of this page) , which are both incorporated herein by reference, govern all offers, orders, agreements and other legal relationships between the Buyer and the Seller with respect to the use of the Website, including the purchase and sale of a Product on or via the Website.

1.2
The Buyer can purchase Products either as a guest or as an account holder. To complete the purchase process as a guest or to create an account, the Buyer must complete the specified process by providing the Seller with current, complete, and accurate information as requested by the applicable form. It is the Buyer’s responsibility to maintain the completeness, and accuracy of the Buyer’s registration information and any loss caused by the Buyer’s failure to do so is the Buyer’s responsibility. After the Buyer has fully completed the form to create an account, the Buyer may be asked to choose a password. It is entirely Buyer’s responsibility to maintain the confidentiality of the Buyer’s password and account. Additionally, the Buyer is entirely responsible for any and all activities that occur under the Buyer’s account. The Buyer agrees to notify the Seller immediately of any unauthorized use of the Buyer’s account. The Seller is not liable for any loss that the Buyer may incur as a result of someone else using the Buyer’s password or account, either with or without the Buyer’s knowledge.

ARTICLE 2. CONCLUSION AND CONTENT OF THE AGREEMENT

2.1
The presentation and advertising of Products in our Website Shop does not constitute a binding offer to conclude a purchase agreement.

2.2
The Buyer may select Products from the Seller’s range of Products, particularly clothing, shoes and fashion items in the desired style, color and size, and place these into a “shopping cart” by clicking on the “add to bag” button.

2.3
As soon as the Buyer has finished selecting the contents for the shopping cart, they can continue by clicking on the button “proceed”.

  • The Buyer is first taken to an overview of the Products in the shopping cart with the description of the Product, price and the delivery time. 
  • After clicking on the button “proceed”, the Buyer enters the Buyer’s invoice address, and, if the delivery address differs from the billing address, also enters the desired delivery address. In the further checkout process, the Buyer can also choose alternative shipping destinations (i.e. pick-up point, G-Star Store). 
  • After clicking on the “proceed to delivery” button, the Buyer can choose from three alternative delivery destinations: 
(a) The Buyer can arrange for the shipment to be delivered to a G-Star Store from which the Buyer can pick up the Products after delivery to this store;
(b) The Buyer can arrange for the shipment to be delivered to a pick-up point (as chosen by the buyer in the check-out process, where available) from which the Buyer can pick up the Products after delivery to this pick-up point;
(c) The Buyer can give a shipping address of the Buyer’s choice (such as the Buyer’s home address) to which the Products are to be delivered.

  • After selecting the shipping method and the specific address of the specific G-Star Store or pick-up point, the Buyer can continue with the ordering process by clicking on the “proceed to secure payment” button. 

2.4
The Buyer can then choose between the following payment methods:

  • (a) Credit card: With this payment method the Buyer must enter the corresponding credit card information. By clicking on the “pay” button the Buyer then submits a legally binding order. This “pay” button will only work if the Sales Terms of the Seller have previously been approved by checking the box next to the information concerning these Sales Terms and thereby clicking to agree to these Sales Terms. Before clicking the “pay” button the Buyer can cancel the order at any time, change the contents of the order by removing existing Products from and/or adding new Products to the shopping cart, and change the shipping address and payment method. We would point out that, with this payment method, the placing of the binding order and payment take place simultaneously. 
  • (b) Immediate bank transfer: With this payment method the Buyer submits a legally binding order by clicking on the “pay” button. This “pay” button will only work if the Sales Terms of the Seller have previously been approved by checking the box next to the information concerning these Sales Terms and thereby clicking to agree to these Sales Terms. Before clicking the “pay” button the Buyer can cancel the order at any time, change the contents of the order by removing existing Products from and/or adding new Products to the shopping cart, and change the shipping address and payment method. Once the Buyer has clicked on the “pay” button, the Buyer will be redirected to the website of the external payment process service provider to make payment. 
  • (c) PayPal: With this payment method the Buyer submits a legally binding order by clicking on the “pay” button. This “Buy now” button will only work if the Sales Terms of the Seller have previously been approved by checking the box next to the information concerning these Sales Terms and thereby clicking to agree to these Sales Terms. Before clicking the “pay” button the Buyer can cancel the order at any time, change the contents of the order by removing existing Products from and/or adding new Products to the shopping cart, and change the shipping address and payment method. Once the has clicked on the “pay” button, the Buyer will be redirected to the PayPal website to make payment. 

2.5
An agreement only comes into existence once the Seller has received a properly completed order. An order is properly completed by Buyer when Seller receives the correct full payment, accompanied by all the information Seller needs to fulfill the order. The Seller shall immediately confirm the receipt of the Order which the Buyer has placed via the Website in an e-mail to the Buyer.

2.6
The Seller reserves the right to refuse the Order or cancel the Order placed by the Buyer, especially in the following cases:

  • if the total value of the Order exceeds the sum specified in the payment section of the FAQs; 
  • if the information submitted by the Buyer is false and/or incomplete, or if the Seller can reasonably question its veracity; 
  • if due payment by the Buyer does not take place immediately after placing the Order by clicking on the button “Buy now”; 
  • if the Buyer has already failed to fulfill their payment obligations towards the Seller in the past; • if the Buyer has refused to accept and/or failed to collect any orders which they have placed with the Seller in the past; 
  • if there is an obvious or processing error in the prices given on the Website; 
  • if the desired delivery address is located outside USA; or
  • if your order is signaled by our security systems as an unusual order or an order susceptible to fraud. 

2.7
The Seller shall notify the Buyer as soon as possible if an Order is not accepted. In such a case, any payments which have already been made by the Buyer shall be refunded as soon as possible.
