THESE TERMS OF SALE GOVERN YOUR SHOPPING EXPERIENCE, INCLUDING PURCHASES OF NIKE PRODUCTS, FROM NIKE STORES (DEFINED BELOW) IN THE UNITED STATES. IF YOU ARE PURCHASING NIKE PRODUCTS OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES, YOUR PURCHASES ARE GOVERNED BY DIFFERENT TERMS. PLEASE REVIEW THE TERMS CAREFULLY BEFORE ORDERING PRODUCTS ONLINE OR OTHERWISE PURCHASING FROM THE NIKE STORE (AS DEFINED BELOW).

PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR USE OF AND ACCESS TO NIKE STORES (DEFINED BELOW) ARE SUBJECT TO THE FOLLOWING TERMS; BY SHOPPING IN ANY NIKE STORE OR PURCHASING ANY NIKE PRODUCT FROM NIKE IN THE UNITED STATES, YOU ARE ACCEPTING AND AGREEING TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS OF SALE.

APPLICABILITY

These Terms of Sale (“Terms of Sale” or “Terms”) apply to your shopping, orders, purchases, and returns at NIKE-owned brick and mortar retail stores (each a “Retail Store”), and NIKE-owned digital stores that enable consumer purchases through NIKE.com, SNKRS or the NIKE app (each a “Digital Store”). Retail Stores and Digital Stores are collectively referred to in these Terms of Sale as “NIKE Stores”. These Terms of Sale create a legally binding agreement between you and NIKE Retail Services, Inc.

PURCHASING PRODUCTS

NO PURCHASE FOR RESALE

NIKE Stores, including any consumer rights or policies offered in NIKE Stores, are intended solely for the benefit of end consumers, and therefore purchase of products for resale is strictly prohibited. Purchase for resale means the purchase of product by someone who intends to resell the product to others (consumers, businesses or any third party).  If NIKE determines that a purchase or order is intended for resale, NIKE reserves the right, in its sole discretion, and as it relates to such purchase or order, to (1) suspend the application of any NIKE policy that provides a right or benefit intended for direct to consumer purchases; and (2) take any action to hinder such purchase or order (and deter future purchases or orders), including without limitation, to restrict sales to any consumer, consumer account, or member account, cancel orders, charge restocking fees, impose purchase quantity limits, decline to issue refunds or take returns, deny access to any NIKE Store, and/or suspend or close any account.  

HOW TO PURCHASE– DIGITAL STORES

To complete your purchase at a Digital Store, you must provide your full name, e-mail address, valid delivery address, and payment method to place an online order. You may need to adjust your device settings or set your browser to accept functional cookies and pop-ups in order to be able to use all the functionalities of a Digital Store, which includes designing customized items, adding items to your shopping bag and submitting your order. 

When you submit an order, we will send an email acknowledging receipt of your order (“Order Confirmation”).  Our acceptance of your order takes place when the products are shipped to you; we will send a second email confirming that the products have been shipped. If we are unable to supply you with a product, we will inform you of this in writing and will not process the order for that product. 

OUR RIGHT TO REJECT YOUR PURCHASE OR CANCEL AN ORDER

Sale of products and fulfillment of all orders at a NIKE Store is subject to availability and our discretion in managing inventory. We explicitly reserve the right to limit, decline or reject any sales and orders for any reason, without being liable for any damage or costs other than repayment of any amount received from you in relation to such sale or order, in situations including but not limited to:

  • an Event Outside Our Control (as defined below);
  • the product you seek to purchase is not available or in stock;
  • your address, billing information or form of payment is incorrect or cannot be verified;
  • your order is flagged by our security systems as potentially fraudulent, or an order placed with automated ordering software or technology;
  • there is evidence that your order (single or cumulative orders) was purchased for the purpose of resale, tax evasion, or other fraudulent purpose;
  • your order was flagged for freight forwarding or shipping to an address or service provider that enables or allows foreign export or unlawful avoidance of sales tax;
  • your purchase or order exceeds product purchase limits (quantity and/or dollar amount);
  • your account and/or purchase history shows an excessively high volume of returns;
  • there is evidence that you are not eligible to make purchases; or
  • in the event of misspelling, pricing or other errors or mistakes at the NIKE Store(s) where you wish to order or purchase.

NIKE will determine whether any of the above events have occurred in its sole discretion.

 

TITLE TRANSFER & RISK OF LOSS

With the exception of products purchased or picked up at NIKE Stores, title and risk of loss for products purchased from NIKE pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier.  Title and risk of loss for products purchased online and picked up at NIKE Retail Stores or directly purchased at NIKE Retail stores will pass to you upon your authorized receipt of those products.  Title to product(s) will not transfer until full payment has been received.

 

INDEMNIFICATION AND RELEASE

To the fullest extent permissible by applicable law, you agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless NIKE Retail Services Inc., its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors and suppliers (the “NIKE Parties”) from and against all claims, losses, liabilities, expenses, damages and costs, including, without limitation, attorneys' fees, arising from or relating to your conduct in connection with any NIKE Store or with other NIKE Store users or consumers, or any violation of these Terms of Sale, any law or the rights of any third party. You, for yourself and on behalf of your heirs, estate, insurers, successors and assigns, hereby fully and forever release and discharge the NIKE Parties from any and all claims or causes of action you may have for damages arising from or relating to your conduct in connection with any NIKE Store or with other NIKE Store users or consumers, or any violation of these Terms of Sale, any law or the rights of any third party.

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY APPLICABLE LAW, the maximum aggregate liability of either party to the other on all claims ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO  THIS Agreement, whether in contract, warranty, tort, strict liability, statute, or otherwise, SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE SUM PAID TO NIKE FOR THE PRODUCT(S) PURCHASED IN THE RELEVANT TRANSACTION.

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY APPLICABLE LAW, NONE OF THE NIKE PARTIES WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, FOR:  ANY LOST PROFITS OR LOST DATA, THAT RESULT FROM YOUR ACCESS OR USE OF, OR YOUR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE, A NIKE STORE; OR FOR THE PERFORMANCE OF THE PRODUCTS PURCHASED AT A NIKE STORE; OR FOR THE CONDUCT OF NIKE STORE USERS OR CONSUMERS (WHETHER ONLINE OR OFFLINE);  OR FOR ANY USER CONTENT OR ANY OTHER ACTIVITY IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR SHOPPING, ORDERS, PURCHASES, OR USE OF A NIKE STORE, EVEN IF NIKE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.  YOU ASSUME TOTAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR USE AND ACCESS TO  NIKE STORES. YOUR ONLY REMEDY AGAINST NIKE IN CONNECTION WITH ANY ALLEGED DAMAGES ARISING FROM YOUR USE OR ACCESS TO THE NIKE STORES OR ANY CONTENT IS TO STOP USING OR ACCESSING NIKE STORES.

IF ANY PART OF THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY IS DETERMINED TO BE UNENFORCEABLE OR INVALID FOR ANY REASON, YOU AGREE THAT NIKE’S LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY DAMAGE OR LOSS SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ENFORCEABLE BY APPLICABLE LAW.

 

DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY

NIKE PROVIDES ACCESS TO NIKE STORES “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE”, WITHOUT ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT ON ALL USES AND/OR PURCHASES. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY APPLICABLE LAW, ALL SUCH REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES ARE HEREBY EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMED.

DISPUTES

CHOICE OF LAW, JURISDICTION, TIME LIMIT FOR CLAIMS

  • You agree that these Terms and any dispute between you and NIKE shall be governed in all respects by Oregon law, without regard to choice of law provisions, and not by the 1980 U.N. Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.
  • Except where prohibited by applicable law, and without limitation to any statutory rights for consumers, you agree that all disputes, claims and legal proceedings directly or indirectly arising out of or relating to NIKE Stores (including but not limited to the purchase of NIKE products) shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively in the state or federal courts located in Multnomah County, Oregon, USA.
  • You consent to waive all defenses of “lack of personal jurisdiction” and “inconvenient forum” with respect to venue and jurisdiction in the state and federal courts of Multnomah County, Oregon, USA.
  • All claims shall be brought within one (1) year after the claim arises, except to the extent a longer period is required by applicable law.

RIGHT TO ASSIGN, NO WAIVERS, SEVERABILITY

  • NIKE may assign its rights and duties under these Terms to any party at any time without notice to you, unless notice is required by applicable law, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these Terms. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these Terms to another person if we agree in writing. 
  • NIKE’s failure to insist upon or enforce strict performance of these Terms is not a waiver of any of these Terms or NIKE’s rights.  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. You should always assume these Terms apply.
  • If any court or relevant authority decides that any provision of these Terms is invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of these Terms shall continue to be enforceable.

 

PRICE/PAYMENT

PAYMENT METHODS

We accept several payment methods at check out at NIKE Stores. You can find the list of acceptable payment methods at Digital Stores at the Get Help pages of our Digital Stores.  Acceptable payments in Retail Stores are described at the register.  Redemption/use of NIKE gift cards to purchase products is subject to the NIKE Gift Card Terms and Conditions posted on the NIKE Gift Cards page at NIKE.com. Please do not try to pay using any payment method not posted at the NIKE Stores. If you do, we will not be liable for any loss of the payment or any other damages that may result from this action. 

PAYMENT PROCESSING

With the exception of built-to-order products (e.g. pre-order products and customized products) (“NIKE By You”), if you pay by credit or debit card, we will pre-authorize and hold the amount due when you place an order. Once your order ships, we will deduct the pre-authorized amount from your account.

The product prices displayed on products, packaging, signage, or otherwise posted within the NIKE Store do not include sales tax. Shipping rates are applied per order.

Prices are quoted and exclusively payable in US dollars. 

The prices of the products will be as displayed in the NIKE Store. Prices may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order which we have confirmed in an Order Confirmation. 

YOUR TOTAL PRICE

The total price specified in the final check out screen on our Digital Stores includes estimated tax and shipping costs (if applicable). This price, updated to include actual tax, will be recorded in the Order Confirmation for Digital Store orders, which we recommend you print or download for future reference. For Retail Store purchases, actual tax and shipping costs (if applicable) will appear on your printed receipt, which we recommend you save for future reference. If you pay by credit or debit card, the total amount for your entire purchase will be reflected on your statement in your local currency. 

If your local currency is not in US dollars, your bank or credit card issuer will apply exchange rate and any fees according to terms and regulations applicable to you and the bank/issuer of your credit or debit card. The exchange rate and any fees applied by the bank/issuer are beyond our control.

EVENTS OUTSIDE OUR CONTROL

An Event Outside Our Control means any act or event beyond our reasonable control, including without limitation supply chain shortages, strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action by third parties, civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war, fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic, pandemic, or other natural disaster, or failure of public or private telecommunications networks. 

If an Event Outside Our Control takes place that affects the performance of our obligations under these Terms: (1) We will provide notice to you as soon as reasonably possible; and (2) our obligations under these general conditions will be suspended and the time for performance of our obligations will be extended during the time needed for resolution of the Event Outside Our Control. 

Where the Event Outside Our Control affects our delivery of a product to you, we will arrange a new delivery date with you after the Event Outside Our Control is over.  You may cancel the order if an Event Outside Our Control takes place and you no longer wish us to provide the products.
