You are reading these Terms of Sale (“Terms of Sale”) because you

app, or one of our other products or services, all of which are part of Converse’s

revise these Terms of Sale without notice by posting revised Terms of Sale on

PLACING ORDERS ON THE PLATFORM
ELIGIBILITY TO ORDER
To place an order on the Platform, you must be of legal age in
your jurisdiction of residence and a consumer - not a reseller.
NO PURCHASE FOR RESALE
The Platform is intended solely for Converse to sell Converse products
directly to end consumers, and therefore purchase of products for resale is strictly
prohibited. Purchase for resale means the purchase of a Converse product by
someone who resells, or intends to resell, the Converse product to others
(consumers, businesses or any third party). If Converse believes you are
involved in purchase for resale, Converse reserves the right to take any action
against you, including, without limitation, to restrict sales to you, cancel
your orders, and/or suspend or close your account.

You need an email address to place an order, and you may need to
set your browser to accept both (functional) cookies and pop-ups in order to be
able to use all the functionalities of the Platform, which includes designing

When you submit an order, we will send you an email acknowledging
receipt of your order. Our acceptance of the order takes place when the products
are shipped to you - we will send you an email confirming that the products
have been shipped (“Order Confirmation”). At this point a contract, containing
these Terms of Sale, comes into existence and is binding on you and us (the
“Contract”). We recommend that you print or download a copy of these Terms of
Sale and the relevant Order Confirmation for future reference. If we are unable
to supply you with a product, we will inform you of this in writing and will
not process the order.
Once your order is placed, you can check on its status at any time
using the Order Status link on Converse.com. Use your order number (which can
be found in your confirmation email), email address and billing zip code to
sign into Converse.com for up-to-date info on where your order is in the
process. When your order ships, we’ll send you a shipping confirmation email
with tracking information – so you can follow your shipment every step of the
way. If you have a Converse Account and were logged in when you placed your
order, the order information will appear within your order history in Your

PRICES AND CURRENCY
The product prices displayed on the Platform are in United States
dollars and the order total will include sales tax, as applicable. Shipping
rates are applied per order. Because sales tax rates and rules vary by state

SHIPPING & DELIVERY
DELIVERY – WHERE AND WHEN
Please refer to the Shipping & Delivery section of
the Platform for dates and the available delivery times and methods.
When possible, we try to deliver all items which you have ordered
at the same time. However, please note that an order for customized products
may result in split shipments. We reserve the right to split the delivery of
your order, for instance if part of your order is delayed. In the event that we
split your order, we will notify you of our intention to do so by sending you
an e-mail to the e-mail address provided by you at the time your order was
placed. You will not be charged for any additional delivery costs.
INSPECTION UPON DELIVERY
Upon delivery, please inspect the packaging for damage. If it
appears that the products are damaged, please do not accept the shipment and
contact Customer Service immediately.
Free standard shipping is available for all orders over $50.00, or
for all orders placed by Converse.com members. See the Shipping & Delivery section of
the Platform for additional delivery rates for standard and expedited shipping.
CANCELLING ORDER BEFORE DELIVERY
We do try to process all orders as quickly as possible, but we
might be able to help if the order has not been shipped. Please check the
status of your order first by visiting the "Order status" link at the
top right of the Platform. If the status of your order is "Pending"
or "On Hold" you may cancel your order by contacting our customer
service. Our customer service agents will request a cancellation of your order
at our warehouse. If successful, they will send you an email and the
cancellation will be free of charge. If we’re unable to cancel your order, it
will ship as scheduled. But don’t worry – you can return it for any reason within
30 days, free of charge. See details below.

options. You may also have other rights that vary from state to state.
