4. How We Use your Personal Information
5. Allbirds' Obligations to you
Allbirds is under a legal duty to supply Products which conform with a Contract, including that the Products are as described and match information we provided to you and any model seen or examined by you, are of satisfactory quality and are fit for any particular purpose made known to us. Nothing in these Terms will affect these legal rights. Advice about your legal rights as a consumer is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
6. How the Contract is Formed Between you and Allbirds
Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please take the time to read and check your order at each page of the order process.
After you place an order, you will receive an email from Allbirds acknowledging that we have received your order. We will confirm our acceptance to you by sending you a confirmation email that confirms that the Products have been ordered. The Contract between us will only be formed when we send you the confirmation email.
If we are unable to supply you with a Product, for example because that Product is not in stock or no longer available, or because of an error in the price on our website, we will inform you of this by email and we will not process your order. If you have already paid for the Products, we will refund you the full amount as soon as possible.
7. Your Right of Return and Refund
You have the right to cancel a Contract during the period set out below. This means that during that period, if you change your mind, or for any other reason you decide you do not want to keep a Product, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund.
Your right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the email confirmation, which is when the Contract between us is formed. You then have a period during which you may cancel a Contract and return the Product, and that period continues until the end of 30 days starting from the day after you receive the Products. Products must be returned to us and accompanied by the invoice we sent you.
To cancel a Contract, please complete the Allbirds Exchanges and Returns Form.
You also have the option of using the EU model cancellation form. You may wish to keep a copy of your cancellation notification for your own records. Your cancellation is effective from the date you sent us the email or posted the letter to us, as long as you sent it during the cancellation period.
If you exercise your right to cancel, you will receive a full refund of the price you paid for the Products and any applicable delivery charges you paid for. We will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and in any case within 30 days from the day we receive the Products back, or you provide evidence that you have returned them. We will make the refund using the same means of payment as you used for the initial purchase, unless you expressly agree otherwise, and you will not incur any fees for receiving that refund.
As a consumer, you will always have legal rights regarding cancellation in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by anything in these Terms. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards Office.
Your order will be fulfilled by the estimated delivery date set out in the email confirmation, unless there is an event outside our control. If we are unable to meet the estimated delivery date because of an event outside our control, we will contact you with a revised estimated delivery date.
Delivery will be completed when we deliver the Products to the address you gave us.
The Products will be your responsibility from the completion of delivery.
You own the Products once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.
Please note that there are a small number of postcodes, usually in remote rural areas, to which we may not be able to deliver within the provided timescale. If you have any queries regarding your order, please firstname.lastname@example.org.
9. Delivery Charges
You will not be charged for standard delivery and all other delivery charges will be made known to you as part of our order process and are as quoted from time to time.
10. Prices and Promotions
The prices of the Products will be as quoted on our website from time to time. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of the Products are correct at the time of publication.
Any changes in price will not affect any order which we have confirmed with an email confirmation.
The price of a Product includes VAT at the applicable current rate chargeable for the time being, and all other applicable taxes.
The price of a Product does not include any applicable delivery charges.
Our website contains a large number of Products. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Products on our website may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the Products, we will inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing. Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
Allbirds reserves the right to alter the terms or duration of any special offers or sale promotion. From time to time our retail stores may run special local promotions on our Products (which may not be available on our website) or we may offer special promotions on our website that are not available in our retail stores. For these reasons you may sometimes find that Products on our website are priced differently to those in our retail stores.
Payment must be made by one of our accepted payment methods which will be made known to you.
Should you be paying by credit or debit card, your bank may place a pending hold on these funds. This is out of the control of Allbirds. This payment will be released when payment for your order is requested by Allbirds.

This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors, for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation, for intent or gross negligence, for breach of your legal rights in relation to the Products (including the right to receive Products which are as described and match information we provided to you and any sample or model seen or examined by you, of satisfactory quality, and fit for any particular purpose made known to us) and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.

17. Other Important Terms
We may transfer our rights and obligations under a Contract to another organisation, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these Terms.
A Contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
