3. The purchasing process
3.1. How to place an order
The purchase process is simple and can be done on the Website itself. To make a purchase on the Website, all you have to do is browse the product catalogue and add the items that interest you to your shopping cart, specifying the quantity and the sizes you want. If there are no size options, please select the only size available.
Once you have selected the items you wish to buy:
• Click on the shopping cart and select “Purchase”. You can modify your order at this point by simply adding products to the cart or removing them.
• You will now be asked to review the information displayed on the screen, add any missing data and select the means of payment. You can currently choose from the following means of payment:
1. We accept Discover, Diners, American Express, Mastercard and Visa debit and credit cards. In this case we will need you to provide us with information about your card for the sole purpose of processing the payment.
2. Paypal: for further information visit https://www.paypal.com
3. Sofort: Offers consumers the possibility of making a transfer from their online bank account during the reservation procedure, without the need to register.
4. Bancontact: A secure online transfer, in real time, that requires giving the Bancontact card number along with an additional form of identification (e.g. a valid one-time password). For more information www.bancontact.com
• After reviewing the products in your cart to avoid mistakes, accept the conditions and proceed with payment by the means you have selected in order to complete the purchase.
• To pick up your purchase you can choose any Pikolinos store enabled to hand over orders. You can find all the points of sale enabled for “Click&Collect” here. This option is available at no extra cost for all purchases of more than € 50.
• Pikolinos will send a message confirming your order and also confirmation of the associated payment (if any). The purchase confirmation email will be accompanied by an electronic receipt containing the details of the transaction: prices of the purchased product(s), applicable taxes and shipping costs (if any). You expressly agree to accept a digital invoice, although you can indicate your desire to receive a printed at any time by sending an email to: email@example.com. In this event we will send you a printed invoice at no extra cost.
• You will receive your purchase in the delivery time indicated on the Website.
• If you choose a Pikolinos store to collect your order and, for reasons not attributable to us it has not been picked up within fifteen (15) days from the date on which it was available for collection, we will assume that you wish to cancel the contract and we will consider it terminated. As a consequence of termination of the contract we will return all payments made — including shipping costs — once the returned product has been received in our Logistic Centre.
4. Prices, Shipping and Delivery
The product prices displayed on the website are set by Pikolinos, are in EUROS and include VAT and any other applicable taxes. Nevertheless, tax-related information is subject to changes as a consequence of changes in the taxes themselves.
Pikolinos only ships to Belgium. If you want to use this Website to place an order from another country, of course you can do so. However, please note that we only deliver to Pikolinos stores enabled to handle deliveries or to a shipping address in French territory. You can find all the points of sale enabled for “Click&Collect” here.
Transport and delivery of your purchases is free for orders in excess of € 50. A packaging and shipping fee of € 9 will be charged on orders of less than € 50. If you choose to collect your order from any Pikolinos store enabled to handle the “Click&Collect” option, the shipping conditions and costs will be the same as those for home delivery.
The Website may include promotions, discounts, free numbers, etc. The respective windows will inform you of these aspects and of any conditions that may apply to your use of the same.
We will send your purchases within the delivery period displayed on the Website except in the event of special circumstances deriving from customisation of the product or event of force majeure (understood as an unpredictable extraordinary circumstance) and always within thirty (30) days counting from confirmation of the order.
5. Acceptance of the General Purchasing Terms and Conditions
When you place an order entirely through www.pikolinos.com, you must read the purchasing conditions and expressly accept them by clicking on the check box — the default status of which is unchecked — at the end of the purchasing process.
6. Right of cancellation
Pikolinos provides for the option of cancelling a purchase contract within thirty (30) calendar days from receipt of the order, without having to give a reason, provided that the product has not been used or damaged. In the case of an order that includes several products to be delivered separately, the return period shall begin on the date of actual receipt of the last item in the order.
If you wish to exercise your right of cancellation you must notify us by sending a clear and concise statement to that effect through one of the following channels:
a) By visiting any physical Pikolinos store enabled to handle the “Click & Collect” option. Find your nearest store here and don’t forget to take your order number and your I.D. with you to take care of the formalities. You can only return an order in the same country where you purchased it.
b) By email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by postal mail to: Calle Galileo Galilei 2, Elche, 03203 Alicante, Spain. You may use the following cancellation form if you wish, but it is not compulsory
(This form must only be filled in and sent if you want to cancel the contract).
Attn: Pikostore S.L.U, calle Galileo Galilei, 2, 03203 - Elche (Alicante), Spain, with the e-mail address: email@example.com
I hereby notify that I wish to cancel my contract to purchase the following [define product], received [enter date of product reception].

Click on the article in question when the order is displayed and select RETURN. Pikolinos will send you an email confirming that we have received your intention to return the products and explaining the remaining steps.
If you use the forms provided on this Website to request a return, you will receive an email from Pikolinos containing a return locator. You must notify the Post Office of this alphanumeric code to enable them to print the return label that has been recorded in their system.

There is no charge for returns.
Using one of the above options, you must return the products in question within fourteen (14) calendar days counting from the date on which you notified us of your desire to return the article or articles.
- Consequences of cancellation
In the event of cancellation we will refund all payments received after the purchase, including delivery costs, without undue delay and always within fourteen (14) calendar days from the date on which we were notified of your decision to cancel. The only payment we will not refund is any additional cost resulting from your choice of a means of delivery different from the least expensive ordinary delivery method that we provide. We may retain the refund until we have received the goods or until you send us documentary proof of return, whichever happens first.
The purchaser shall only be responsible for impairment of the value of the returned goods if they have clearly been handled in excess of what would be required to unpack them and establish their nature, size, features or function.
The goods must be returned in identical conditions to those in which they were delivered, including all their containers and wrappings.
All amounts reimbursed shall be paid by the same means of payment as was used to make the purchase.
- Further information
You are expressly informed that the return period indicated above could be extended to sixty (60) days at sale time or during special promotions. In these cases, you will be notified on the Website with the exact start and end dates of the extended return period of 60 days.
If what you want to do is change the article for an identical one in a different size, simply return the purchase following the steps explained above and place a new order independently of the return process.

8. Legal guarantee
You are expressly informed that we provide a warranty in compliance with the legal guarantee of two (2) years from delivery of the item when you place an order for any products that we market by means of this Website.
Pikolinos expressly declines all responsibility for loss and damage suffered by a customer for reasons attributable to the same.
Pikolinos only accepts responsibility for loss and damage caused to the customer deriving from a fraudulent act or wilful misconduct of Pikolinos in connection with purchases made through this Website.
Pikolinos declines all responsibility for acts or omissions including, but not limited to, the following:
• The products acquired through www.pikolinos.com are of no use to the purchaser. In particular, the above applies to the usefulness of living material acquired through the website since it depends on circumstances such as the weather, climate, environmental conditions, etc.
• The suitability of the products to the purchaser’s real needs.
• Personal or material loss and damage as a result of use of the products.
• Damage to products caused by the delivery carrier.
• Failure to comply with its obligations for reasons of force majeure such as internal or external strikes, natural catastrophes, non-compliance by the company in charge of transport, etc., among others.
The customer hereby recognises that the products ordered are purchased at their own risk. The activity of Pikolinos is limited to execution of the actual tasks required to deliver the products selected by said customer. Pikolinos declines all responsibility for the choice of products by the purchaser even when Pikolinos has provided advice in this respect, or for the customer’s lack of diligence in checking the specifications of the products before ordering them.
At all events, the responsibility assumed by Pikolinos vis-à-vis the purchaser shall never include loss of potential income under any circumstances whatsoever and shall be restricted to the total amount received from the purchaser pursuant to the monetary stipulations set forth in these Terms and Conditions.
Failure by the purchaser to comply with these Terms and Conditions or any other applicable rules and regulations may grant Pikolinos the right to claim compensation for loss and damage. Consequently, the purchaser shall be obliged to compensate Pikolinos for any loss or damage including court costs and legal fees.
Likewise, any legal action taken by third parties against Pikolinos for reasons attributable to the purchaser shall entitle the former to claim for all expenses, costs, loss and damage deriving from said legal action and the purchaser shall hold Pikolinos entirely harmless.
Pikolinos reserves the right to update and/or amend these Terms and Conditions at any time without prior notice.
Said changes shall come into effect on their publication date on www.pikolinos.com by any medium or form.
Changes made to these Terms and Conditions will only affect purchasers who accept them after said updates or amendments.
12. General considerations
12.1. Waiver and interpretation of these Terms and Conditions
These Terms and Conditions, particular conditions agreed at any time and any other conditions applicable to the purchaser constitute the only agreement between the purchaser and Pikolinos.
These Terms and Conditions shall prevail over the provisions of any other terms and conditions agreed by and between Pikolinos and the purchaser in the event of contradiction between the provisions of these Terms and Conditions and said others, unless the latter specifically provide to the contrary.
The failure of either party to demand full application of these Terms and Conditions or strict compliance with any of their stipulations due to special circumstances at any time shall not be taken to mean full or partial amendment of the same or as waiving strict compliance with all these Terms and Conditions in the future.
If any of the clauses or parts of these Terms and Conditions are determined to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not be impaired in any way and the Parties shall negotiate new wording in good faith as similar as possible to the replaced part. The party affected by replacement may choose to terminate the contract if said replacement is deemed to be impossible and the stipulation concerned is deemed to be essential for these Terms and Conditions.
Any reference made in these Terms and Conditions to a repealed article or body of legislation shall be understood to refer to the equivalent provision that replaces it.
These Terms and Conditions are written in Spanish. Translations into other languages are provided as a measure of courtesy for the customer’s convenience. The customer hereby agrees that the contract shall be governed at all times by the Spanish language version, which shall prevail in the event of discrepancy between the Spanish and any translation of the same into another language.

You can contact us by means of the contact forms in the Customer Service tab or by calling our telephone numbers, writing an email or sending a letter by postal mail to the address in the first paragraph of these Terms and Conditions to make a complaint or lodge a claim. We have official complaint forms available to consumers and users.

They will also be recorded with an identification and tracking code of which you will be informed. If you consider that your rights as a consumer have been infringed you can send your complaints by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org to request an out-of-court dispute resolution.
In accordance with Regulation (EU) 524/2013 you are hereby informed that if you have acquired a product from us through our website, you are entitled to request an online dispute resolution for consumer disputes at the official website of the European Union: http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/.
14. Applicable law and jurisdiction
The relationship between Pikolinos and the user shall be governed by Spanish law.
Any discrepancy that may arise related to the use of the Website or to interpretation or execution of the contract governed by the same shall be submitted to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the law courts of Spain.
The law courts of the city of Elche or, in the absence of mercantile courts in Elche those of Alicante, shall be competent to settle differences between Pikolinos and other companies.
