1. Formation of contract and delivery of merchandise
1.1 By placing an order you confirm to purchase for private purposes exclusively.
1.2 For orders placed online at www.zalando.ie, we enter into English language contracts only. When you order Zalando merchandise and Zalando Zircle merchandise, your contract is with Zalando SE, Valeska-Gert-Str. 5, 10243 Berlin.
When you order Zalando partner merchandise, depending on the Product you select, you either have a contract solely with the respective Zalando Partner or with both, Zalando SE and the respective Zalando Partner together (joint seller). Information on the respective contractual relationship is displayed on each product details page.
1.3 By clicking on "Buy now", you are placing a binding order for the items in your shopping cart. Once you have submitted your order, we will immediately send you an e-mail confirmation of your order. A binding contract is formed when you receive the order confirmation from us. Please note that items ordered by advanced payment (reserved) will be dispatched as soon as we receive payment of the full purchase price and any shipping costs. We therefore ask you to transfer the purchase price immediately after receiving the order confirmation, but at least within 7 days.

1.5 You consent to the assignment of the seller's claims for payment of the purchase price to third parties, in particular to Zalando Payments GmbH.
1.6 Please note that, by way of exception, we are under no obligation to deliver your order if our suppliers fail to deliver stock correctly or on time, despite us having followed proper ordering practice at our end (matching purchase transaction). For this exception to apply, we must not be legally responsible for the merchandise being unavailable, and we must have notified you of the situation without undue delay. In addition, we must not have assumed a procurement risk in relation to the ordered merchandise. If merchandise is unavailable, we will refund any payments made by you without undue delay.
1.7 We do not assume the risk of having to procure ordered merchandise elsewhere (procurement risk). This applies also to orders for generic goods (where only the type and features of the goods are described). We are obliged only to make deliveries from our available stock and from the stock we have ordered from our suppliers. Where we make deliveries of goods from our available stock, the goods provided will be consistent with the order made by you. We deliver within Ireland. Where time periods are expressed in working days, we understand working days to mean all of the days between Monday and Friday inclusive, but not public holidays.
1.8 We inform you about the delivery time on each product detail page as well as before you place an order.
1.9 We reserve the right not to accept an order or to cancel the order if the order is being placed by the use of software, robot, crawler, spider or any automated system or scripted behavior and any use of third party services used to place an order on your behalf.
2. Prices, shipping costs and express delivery
2.1 The prices set out in the offer as at the date on which the order is placed shall apply.

The merchandise remains our property or the property of the relevant Zalando partner, as the case may be, until full payment of the purchase price.
2.2 We assume the costs of shipping for all orders with a minimum order basket value of €24.90.
2.3 Shipping costs amount to €3.90 including VAT for all orders with a value of less than €24.90, as indicated on the product detail page and in the shopping cart when placing the order. The fee relates to costs resulting from the size of the order, inter alia shipping handling and other services. The costs accrue and are levied by Zalando. In case that the customer returns the goods within the procedure and in accordance with this contract and the applicable law, the shipping costs will be refunded.
2.4 Express delivery is available for certain orders. When placing your order, you will see whether this option is available for your particular order as well as the costs of this option. Merchandise will be delivered within 2 working days at the latest. If the merchandise does not arrive within that delivery period, you will of course receive a refund of the delivery costs.
2.5 Depending on where your item is being shipped from, long-distance delivery fees of €3.00 including VAT may apply. We will inform you accordingly before your order is placed if long-distance delivery fees apply for the item selected. Long-distance delivery costs accrue and are levied by Zalando. If you decide to return any item for which long-distance delivery fees have been charged, we will refund the long-distance delivery fees if the full order is returned. Your statutory rights remain unaffected.

7.1 Without prejudice to your statutory right of revocation, we offer you the option of returning merchandise within 30 days of you receiving them. This return option allows you, even after the 14-day revocation period has expired (see "Information regarding the right of revocation" above), to cancel the contract by returning the merchandise to us, or to our Zalando partner if Zalando partner merchandise is involved, within 30 days of receiving them (this period commences upon your receipt of the merchandise).

Please contact Customer Care if you have any problems downloading the return shipping label or you do not have access to a printer.

However, your exercise of this return option is preconditioned upon you having worn/tried on the merchandise only as you would have in a shop, and upon the merchandise being returned in full in its original condition, intact and undamaged, and in its original packaging. Until the period for exercising the statutory right of revocation expires, the statutory provisions governing this right shall apply exclusively. The option to return merchandise does not limit your statutory warranty rights, to which you remain entitled without qualification. The option to return merchandise does not apply to gift vouchers.

For payments on account and advance payment by funds transfer, the refund will be sent to the account from which the payment was made. If you paid by Paypal/credit card, the refund will be sent to your Paypal/credit card account.
