Terms & Conditions

The following terms & conditions apply between the seller, Esprit Retail B.V. & Co. KG, Esprit Allee 1, 40882 Ratingen, Germany (hereinafter also referred to as “we” or “Esprit”) and the buyer, who is a consumer (hereinafter also referred to as “you”), for all purchase agreements made via the Esprit online shop or the Esprit app.


1. Conclusion of Contract

1.1. Our product presentation in the Esprit online shop solely represents a non-binding invitation for you to purchase merchandise from us.

1.2. By sending your order, you submit a binding offer to conclude a sales contract with us.

1.3 The acceptance of an offer through an order from the Esprit Online Shop, will takes place upon your receipt of the dispatch confirmation which must be made due to the current safety standards for combating the Corona Virus and the resulting delayed processing, at the latest within 14 working days.

The automatically generated order confirmation does not constitute acceptance of the offer. It merely documents the fact that we have received your order. We decide at our own discretion whether we will accept an order or not. We will notify you immediately if we are unable to accept your order. In this case, we will reimburse you for any payments you have already made. If we reject an order because the payment method selected by you cannot be used, and simultaneously offer you the option to use another payment method, then this constitutes a rejection of your order and a new offer that you can accept.

1.4 We only sell our merchandise to end consumers in standard commercial quantities.

1.5 We only sell our merchandise to end consumers who are 18 years of age or older and only in standard commercial quantities.

1.6 The ordering process in our online shop comprises 3 steps. In the first step you select the desired merchandise. In the second step you have the option – if desired – of registering for or logging on to Esprit Friends. The third step allows you to enter the invoice and delivery address and select the desired payment method. When this process is complete you will be able to place your order with us. After you have submitted your order, you will have the opportunity to print it.


2. Voluntary Exchange Option

2.1 Independent of your legal right of revocation, we voluntarily offer you the option of returning products you purchase from us. This allows you to return any items purchased in the Esprit online shop free of charge within 14 days of receipt without stating any reasons using the postage-paid return labels enclosed with your order and the returns form, provided the merchandise is complete, unused and undamaged. You are only permitted to inspect the merchandise in a manner similar to trying it on in a shop. For merchandise affixed with a special hygiene adhesive or a hygienic seal/shrink wrap, this only applies insofar as the adhesive, seal or shrink wrap has not been opened.

2.2 The voluntary exchange option does not apply to personalised items or items that are manufactured according to customer specifications.

2.3 Beyond this, the legal right of revocation outlined in Item 3 applies.
